Since prostate cancer is easier to prevent rather than treat, your most important choice is that of prevention.
Undergo prostate screening annually from the age of 50 on, or younger if you have a family history of prostate cancer. Utilize both conventional and non conventional styles of testing procedures.
If family history indicates prostate cancer, or if you are faced with an autoimmune disease, take extra precaution with the following suggestions, and look carefully into the subject of Vasectomy, as this procedure could aggravate your already higher risk for prostate cancer.
Engage in life supporting and anti-stress solutions to relieve tightness surrounding the prostate gland, such as yoga, massage and acupuncture. Avoid tight underclothing and pants. Wear your belt buckle off to the side, and avoid nickel.
Engage in an enjoyable exercise routine that you do 3-5 days per week. Experiment with Yoga, Qi Gong or Tai Chi. Movement that strengthens and relaxes the body, rather than constricts, is an essential element to maintaining prostate health.
Make positive diet changes, eliminating conventional, processed and fast foods, toxic fats and oils, and inorganic diary and protein sources. Eat organic whenever possible. Start eating a whole foods diet, eating an abundant selection of raw and lightly steamed vegetables, raw fruits and clean protein sources, along with fresh juices, whole grains, and soaked nuts and seeds.
Use purified water both internally and when bathing, and drink at least 1/2 your weight in ounces of quality water daily.
Rather than coffee, choose green tea containing 710 ECGC, and other non-caffeinated herb teas as a powerful anti-oxidant drink. Sip throughout the day. To read more visit: www.greenteahaus.com
