How To Heal And Maintain A Healthy Prostate

It is estimated that half of all men experience prostate problems at some point in their lives, a figure that has risen in recent years do to our diet and modern lifestyles. Did you know that sitting behind your desk all day can be bad for your prostate? Did you know that too many dairy and meat products are also bad for prostate health? Did you know that not ejaculating frequently is bad for your prostate too?

Sadly most men do not even know what a prostate is until they have a problem with theirs but that does not mean that a lot of prostate problems cant be solved or improved. Often when your prostate is bothering you the first thing your doctor prescribes is antibiotics to defeat any bacterial infections. Unfortunately, a lot of the time this will do nothing to alleviate your discomfort when the infection is non bacterial. Luckily there are many techniques you can use to heal your prostate, and if your prostate is perfectly healthy consider these techniques anyway to keep it that way.

The first thing to do is to alter your diet and reduce your meat and dairy product intake. You can substitute this with poultry or best of all soy products. Soy beans have shown to help protect the prostate from damage from other foods, especially soy milk. Cows milk has been shown to be scarily bad for your prostate so think about replacing your cows milk with soy milk. Take care to reduce your fat intake which wont only help your prostate but keep your heart healthy. Too much fat in your diet can actually cause erectile dysfunction as blood flow to the penis is restricted as the fat clogs up the arteries to your penis, just like it does to the heart.

How many hours a day do you spend sitting down? Sitting for lengthy periods of time is also unhealthy for your prostate as constant pressure on your perineum (the area of skin between the anus and testicles) is transferred to your prostate reducing blood flow. Just like experiencing your leg or a butt cheek falling asleep when sitting for too long. This reduced blood flow will numb your prostate and less oxygen and nutrients which are carried by blood cells to every cell of your body will reach the prostate. Obviously choking and starving your prostate like this for long periods of time is a bad idea as it will be more susceptible to infections even cancer.

Those of you that cannot help sitting for long periods of time can try the following to lessen the impact on your prostate. Take a few minute breaks from your chair ever hour or so where you stand up at your desk and if possible walk around. If that is not possible then at least try to sit in a position that will reduce the pressure on your perineum. This can be done by leaning to one side as you sit transferring pressure from other butt cheeks to just one as this lifts your perineum off the chair. Slouching in your chair can also reduce the pressure but it is not a good habit to get into for long periods of time as your back could suffer.

Perhaps the most underestimate technique for improving and maintaining prostate health is to ejaculate frequently. The male reproductive orgasm are solely designed to produce and ejaculate semen on a frequent basis. It does not matter what religion, race, social beliefs or social statues a man has, the simple fact of nature is that our bodies are designed to ejaculate. By ejaculating regularly semen stored in the prostate, seminal vesicles and testicles is expelled cleaning out the organs from stale semen which could potentially cause blockages and infections if not cleared out through ejaculation or prostate milking. In fact a recent Australian study has shown that men who ejaculate frequently are less likely to develop prostate cancer than those who do not. Recommended ejaculation frequency can vary but as a general figure a man should aim for twice a week to maintain a healthy prostate.

The final and one of the most effective ways to keep your prostate healthy is through prostate massage. A quick and easy way to indirectly massage your prostate is through an external prostate massage which is done by using one or two fingers to gently massage your perineum (the area between your anus and testicles) for 20-30 minutes. This will increase blood flow to the prostate and possibly release some prostate fluid and or pre-cum. A more effective prostate massage can be done using a prostate massager, we recommend the Aneros prostate massager. It can also be preformed using fingers with our prostate massage guide.
