Prostate issues can be hereditary. They also affect more African-American men than any other race. Men older than fifty are most at risk. Be sure to speak with your health care provider about any concerns you have regarding your personal risk factors, as well as routine testing.
Signs of trouble include
Changes in urination frequency or volume, foamy or discolored urine, a painful pulling sensation at the base of the penis during sexual intercourse, lower back pain during sexual intercourse, pain in the large muscle at the base of your thumbs, and depression.
These symptoms can also indicate other diseases or conditions. If you have one or more of these symptoms, contact your health care provider for testing and/or consultation.
There are a lot of natural ways to secure prostate health. Prevention is the most important.
These foods are beneficial to your prostate health. Remember to choose foods without refined sugars or processed meats, for your overall well-being. Organic choices are always best with any food. Foods are the strongest prevention tool available. Be sure to eat plenty of raw fruits and vegetables. Oatmeal is another food healthy for the prostate. Some prostate- healthy choices are raw, hulled pumpkin seeds (8-10 per day)or wheat germ (i.e.3/4 teaspoon in your oatmeal).
Small healthy changes in your daily life can ensure proper prostate function. Be sure to read labels, check for signs and symptoms, and don’t forget to enjoy life with a healthy prostate!
