Your Guide Keeping Your Prostate Healthy
Welcome to Healthy Prostate Formula. Here you will learn all about how to heal and maintain a healthy prostate.
The first step of our healthy prostate plan is to understand what the prostate is, what it does and how it can effect you. To start off with our healthy prostate formula lets take a closer look at the prostate. The prostate is about the size of the walnut, and is a doughnut shaped male sex gland that surrounds the urethra at the base of the bladder.
The prostate supplies about 25% of male ejaculate as prostatic fluid which clears the urethral tract and carries the sperm out of the penis. The prostatic fluid acts as a lubricant to protect the urethra from infection, and as an energy source and protection for the sperm.
The prostate is a vital part of the male reproductive system and sexual organs and prostate cancer is one of the leading causes of death in men over age 30, so as such, keeping a healthy prostate should be a top priority for most men. Before we get to discussing how to keep your prostate healthy and avoid an enlarged prostate.
Problems With the Prostate
The most common problems with the prostate include prostate infections, an enlarged prostate, and prostate cancer. Below are more detailed explanations of these common symptoms. In the following sections we will give you some information about what pieces go into a prostate health formula and what you can do to improve your overall health.
Prostatitis, or prostate infections, occur in many men between the ages of 30 and 50 years old, but can also occur in older men. Studies have shown that about 8% of the population will have a prostate infection, while other studies have estimated that about half of all men will have prostatitis at one time in their lives.
The causes of prostatitis are not well understood, and it is thought that around 5% of cases are caused by either acute or chronic bacterial infections. The rest of the cases have unknown causes. The symptoms of an infected prostate include increased urinary frequency and difficulty, pain during urination, pain during ejaculation, high fever and chills, as well as generalized fatigue. In chronic bacterial prostatitis, or common and recurrent prostate infections due to recurrent urinary tract infections can also lead to sexual dysfunction. Most symptoms are also associated with infections of other parts of the urinary tract as well as symptoms of an inflamed prostate which has different causes than an enlarged prostate due to BPH.
An enlarged prostate is a result of hormonal changes that are associated with aging. Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy, or BPH, is another name for an enlarged prostate, and is usually found in men older than 50 years of age. An enlarged prostate is a non-cancerous enlargement that causes discomfort. The most common and recognizable symptom of BPH is frequent and uncomfortable urination. This blockage is due to the location and enlargement of the prostate, and the resulting pressure can restrict the bladder from emptying completely. In serious cases this can lead to kidney problems as well.
Prostate Cancer is cancer that begins in the prostate. Many of the symptoms of prostate cancer are those associated with prostatitis as well as an enlarged prostate due to non-cancerous BPH, for this reason it is very important to see a medical professional right away if you experience any of the symptoms described. Other symptoms that occur due to prostate cancer can be incontinence, bone pain, blood in the urine, abdominal pain, a low red blood cell count, and unintentional weight loss. Prostate cancer is treated in mostly the same way as other cancers and depends on the stage of the tumor. You will need to talk with your doctor about your options which may include radiation therapy, surgery, or simply monitoring the cancer without actively participating in any treatments. Many of the treatments available have side effects that will need to be discussed in detail before proceedings.
If you have prostate health issues of the type described above, then the most common symptoms you may have, as described above, may be that you need to go to the bathroom more regularly, it may be uncomfortable to urinate, and you may have trouble clearing your bladder. If you experience these symptoms supplementing with nutrients, massage, and exercise or specialized supplements like GNC’s prostate formula may not be enough for complicated problems, so make sure to talk to your doctor quickly
Prostate problems can arise from the body’s conversion of testosterone into dihydrotestosterone, and for this reason surgery’s and medications may involve reducing or restricting testosterone production.
Treatments for your prostate include:
Frequent prostate massages, trans-urethral microwave thermo-therapy, relaxation techniques, muscle relaxants, biofeeback, and in the case of a prostate infection, erythromycin and similar antibiotics have been known to help clear up bacterial causes.
In the case of non-cancerous prostatitis, surgery is a rarity and will only be considered if medication and massage therapy treatments have not worked. There are many supplements listed below, other posts on this site will give you information on foods that you can eat to make your own natural prostate formula with diet in mind.
