What is prostate?
You must know that every man has a prostate. It is placed very close to the urethra. This gland produces your seminal plasma. Usually the size of a regular prostate is quite small. We can compare it with a nut. At young ages, you don’t even know it is there. It does not bother you with anything. Most men start to be aware of its existence when they reach the age of 50. You may not even have symptoms right away. Only if the prostate size increases so much that it will pressure the urethra walls you will start noticing the difference.
Which are the main symptoms?
When your prostate increases, you may start having certain symptoms that may raise some question marks in your head. Some of them may be ignored because they can be related with many other things such as fatigue, the lack of sexual desire, fever, urinary infections etc. If all the things mentioned earlier are joined by perineal pains, anus and scrotum pains and ejaculation pains as well and you must go to urinate very often in small quantities and may also notice some bleeding during the process, then is the moment when you must make a doctor’ appointment.
Some of the most known diseases caused by an increased prostate seem to be the prostate adenoma and the prostate cancer. You should not think that all men in this world who may have prostate issues would develop eventually prostate cancer. It is a possibility, especially if you have such examples in your family but even so, it is not a rule.
What you should avoid if you have a prostate disorder?
When you start noticing the signs of an increased prostate, it may be wise to avoid certain things so you will not end up in shameful situations and so you will not make the problem bigger than it already is. So, things like physical exercises that include small jumps, when you feel that your bladder is full, may not be a great choice. Your abilities to retain the urine in its place are quite decreased when you suffer of such problem.
In fact, when you feel that your bladder is full and ready to explode you should not retain it no more. Every time you will feel the need to urinate you must not delay the moment. It will only make things worse than they already are. You also must avoid unprotected sexual intercourse if you do not have a stable relationship.
Some people may consider that certain bad habits such as smoking can lead to an increased prostate. Another thing that you must avoid, because otherwise it may just cause even more problems, is constipation. How can you do that?
The best diet when you have prostate issues or when you just want to prevent this problem to emerge
As it was mentioned before, constipation is one thing that must be avoided when you have an increased prostate. The only way you can do that is by taking care of what you eat. This is the reason why a specific nutrition is required. You should not worry, because it is not a very restrictive one. You will only have to add certain aliments in your daily diet and maybe forget about others.
Zinc is a very important mineral that must be included in your daily meals. It seems that it can do wonders for you. If you eat pumpkin seeds salt free, sea fruits and many root vegetables, you may ingest the necessary quantity of zinc that your organism needs.
Soya is rich in isoflavones and they are more than helpful when it comes about defeating the prostate disorders. This means that you should consume many aliments that include soya seeds. The only thing you must search related to these products is if the soya seeds were genetically modified or not.
The beta carotene is another great ingredient that should be added to your diet. Beside beta carotene you should also include many aliments that contain wide quantities of vitamin C, E, Magnesium and essential fat acids such as omega 3. They can only do well to your body and not only for the prostate issues.
An increased prostate can be decreased if you consume things like nuts, lentil or corn. These aliments contain fibers and glutamic acid, which may have a benefic effect on your prostate. There are also aliments that should be avoided or excluded from your diet, so you can obtain the wanted results. Things like dairy products, refined carbohydrates or the drinks that may contain caffeine are not such a great idea.
As in many other diets based on natural ingredients, teas should not be missed. One of the best teas for prostate problems and not only for that seems to be the nettle tea. You should not add any sweeteners to it and you should learn how to prepare the infusion properly. One teaspoon of dehydrated plant added in one hot water cup should be enough. You may wonder how much tea you should drink during the day. Two times per day should be enough in your situation.
Also, the green tea is a very good option thanks to its wide quantities of antioxidants.
With all these things being said, you can find a solution to your problems. When you have a very serious prostate issue, you should request a medical advice right away. In fact, you should request such check up as soon as you notice the first signs. The medical treatment will only be helped by an appropriate diet. One of them cannot replace the other and that is a certitude.
My name is Aura and I am a very active woman. I like being like that because I consider that I have many things to learn from this life.
The main reason why I started to write, was to increase my income. In time I realized that this was not my real goal. I wanted to prove to me, that I have the ability to communicate through writing with people around the world.
I like the idea of sharing my knowledge and experiences with other people even if sometimes they may not agree with me. This is maybe the most important thing in this job. You must allow other people to come with their own ideas backed up by solid arguments.
Another thing, that made me fall in love with writing, was the fact that I can do, even if I do it in my spare time, something I really wanted to do my entire life. Expressing myself through writing gives me the freedom that I can’ t find when I am at my daily workplace.
With all these things being said, I hope you will find my articles interesting and useful.
