Whether or not you have been diagnosed with Prostate Cancer making positive health changes will be of great benefit in improving your quality of life. Eliminating Harmful Habits is of vital importance with either Preventing or Overcoming Prostate Cancer. Before overcoming any area of ill-health it is important to know what you are dealing with together with, warning signs and your options for becoming well.
What is Prostate Cancer?
Prostate cancer is a disease which only affects men. Cancer begins to grow in the prostate – a gland in the male reproductive system.
As with most diseases the exact cause is not known, however some of the suspected causes are inadequate nutrition: especially with green and surprisingly enough orange vegetables: medications, inactivity, obesity, exposure to chemical toxicity, overconsumption of alcohol and poor lifestyle habits.
4 Early Warning Signs of Prostate Cancer
Symptoms of prostate cancer in men include bladder and urinary problems that result in:
1. painful or difficult urination, and frequent urination, especially at night
2. loss of bladder control
3. reduced urinary flow or velocity
4. blood in the urine (a condition known as hematuria)
Many of these signs of prostate cancer develop slowly over time. However, if you notice that you’re suddenly having more difficulty releasing urine, or there’s a build-up of pressure in your bladder or urethral area, this could be an early warning sign that a prostate tumor is forming.
Prostate-Specific Antigen Testing: Good or Bad?
Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) screening is not the panacea that enthusiasts hoped for, but it is not worthless. Men who have elevated PSA need to be aware that a prostate biopsy can identify both clinically significant and insignificant cancers and that intervention can have a negative affect on quality of life. The oncologist will provide his knowledge and recommendations, but once you as the patient has the full understanding of the risks and benefits, it will be up to him to make the choice to be screened or not.
What is Your Prostate?
The prostate is an exocrine gland of the male reproductive system, and exists directly under the bladder, in front of the rectum.
An exocrine gland is one whose secretions end up outside the body e.g. prostate gland and sweat glands. It is approximately the size of a walnut.
The Importance of Your Prostate!
As the urethra goes through the prostate: the prostate gland is also involved in urine control (continence) with the use of prostate muscle fibres.
These muscle fibers in the prostate contract and release, controlling the flow of urine flowing through the urethra.
So taking into consideration that your urinary system is one of your detoxification processes within your body. Therefore responsible for supporting the elimination of toxins.
It also is mentioned glands, male reproduction and muscle fibres.

- Afternoon Smoko (Or Afternoon tea): a red apple and a cup of green tea (if you are a tradesperson then you could have made this up in a flask (thermos) to take with you.

If for some reason you can’t eat fish then you will need to add to your smoothie or pour over your vegies or salad a tablespoon of flaxseed oil per day.
