In this Video, I will discuss on BPH – thats Benign Prostate Hyperplasia commonly called as Prostate Enlargement with Some Basic Anatomy, Functions and Clinical Signs and Symptoms of the prostate disease and then finally after 8 minutes about Home remedies and Natural Cures and Prevention for enalrged prostate problem.
The prostate gland is the size of a walnut and weighs within 20grams normally. Its job is to make the seminal fluid which is stored in the seminal vesicle. During sexual intercourse, seminal fluid comes down the urethra and mixes with the sperms (male germ cells) produced in the testicles to form the semen. So semen technically is not sperm. It is sperm + seminal fluid. The seminal fluid lubricates the sperm and nourishes them
After age 40, for reasons that may be hormonal, the prostate gland begins to enlarge. From 20 grams it may grow to almost 100 grams. As it enlarges, it squeezes the urethra and the man begins to notice changes in the way he urinates.
The good news is that there are life style changes that can help the man after 40 to maintain optimum prostate health*.
Look at what you eat. 33% of all cancers, according to the US National Cancer Institute is related to what we eat.
Red meat everyday triples your chances of prostate disease. Milk everyday doubles your risk. Not taking fruits / vegetables daily quadruples your risk.
Tomatoes are very good for men. If that is the only thing your wife can present in the evening, eat it with joy. It has loads of lycopene. *Lycopene is the most potent natural antioxidant.*
Foods that are rich in zinc are also good for men. *We recommend pumpkin seeds.
Zinc is about the most essential element for male sexuality and fertility.
*Men need more zinc than women*. Every time a man ejaculates he loses 15mg of zinc. Zinc is also important for alcohol metabolism. *Your liver needs zinc to metabolize alcohol.*
As men begin to have urinary symptoms associated with prostate enlargement, it is important they look at alcohol consumption. More fluid in means more fluid out.
So.. Reduce alcohol consumption.
*Exercise helps build the muscle tone*. Every man should exercise. Men over 40 should avoid high impact exercise like jogging. It puts pressure on the knees. Cycling is bad news for the prostate. We recommend brisk walking.
*When we sit, two-third of our weight rests on the pelvic bones. Men who sit longer are more prone to prostate* symptoms. Do not sit for long hours. Walk around as often as you can. Sit on comfortable chairs. We recommend a divided saddle chair if you must sit long hours.
Men should avoid tight underwear. It impacts circulation around the groin and heats it up a bit. While the physiological temperature is 37 degrees, the groin has an optimal temperature of about 33 degrees. Pant is a no – no for men. Wear boxers. Wear breathable clothing.
Avoid smoking. It affects blood vessels and impact circulation around the groin.
Regular sex is good for the prostate.
Celibates are more prone to prostate illness. You know what I mean, it means people who abstain from sex. Ok… While celibacy is a moral decision, it is not a biological adaptation. *Your prostate gland is designed to empty its contents regularly*.
