Prevent Prostate Cancer With These DIY Options

Living everyday life with the devastating effects of prostate conditions can be overwhelming. It is a condition that affects about 50-60 percent of men in their late 40’s and above. Here, you will discover an amazing and highly potent solution to prostate enlargement.


There’s no proven prostate cancer prevention strategy. But you may reduce your risk of prostate cancer by making healthy choices, such as exercising and eating a healthy diet.


Choose a healthy diet


There is some evidence that choosing a healthy diet that’s low in fat and full of fruits and vegetables may contribute to a lower risk of prostate cancer, though research results have been mixed and this hasn’t been proven concretely.


If you want to reduce your risk of prostate cancer, consider trying to choose a low-fat dietTo reduce the amount of fat you eat each day, limit fatty foods or choose low-fat varieties. For instance, reduce the amount of fat you add to foods when cooking, select leaner cuts of meat, and choose low-fat or reduced-fat dairy products. Reducing the amount of fat you eat each day has other proven benefits, such as helping you control your weight and helping your heart.


Increase the amount of fruits and vegetables you eat each day. Fruits and vegetables are full of vitamins and nutrients that are thought to reduce the risk of prostate cancer, though research hasn’t proved that any particular nutrient is guaranteed to reduce your risk.



Maintain a healthy weight


Men who are obese — a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or higher — may have an increased risk of prostate cancer. If you are overweight or obese, work on losing weight. You can do this by reducing the number of calories you eat each day and increasing the amount of exercise you do.


If you are at a healthy weight, work to maintain it by exercising most days of the week and choosing a healthy diet that’s rich in fruits, vegetables and whole grains.


Exercise most days of the week


Studies of exercise and prostate cancer risk have mostly shown that men who exercise may have a reduced risk of prostate cancer.


Exercise has many other health benefits and may reduce your risk of heart disease and other cancers. Exercise can help you maintain your weight, or it can help you lose weight.


If you don’t already exercise, make an appointment with your doctor to make sure it’s OK for you to get started. When you begin exercising, go slowly. Add physical activity to your day by parking your car farther away from where you’re going, and try taking the stairs instead of the elevator.


Aim for 30 minutes of exercise most days of the week.


Stay Sexually Active


Two studies appear to show that men who have a higher frequency of ejaculation (with or without a sexual partner) were up to two-thirds less likely to be diagnosed with prostate cancer. Studies are ongoing, but some experts theorize that ejaculation clears the body of toxins and other substances that could cause inflammation.



Talk to your doctor about your risk


Some men have an increased risk of prostate cancer. For those with a very high risk of prostate cancer, there may be other options for risk reduction, such as medications. If you think you have a high risk of prostate cancer, discuss it with your doctor.
