Taking Charge of Your Health

Hello Gentlemen, today I am gonna deliver
a very useful informational topic particularly Useful for all over-40 guys ! A useful talk on *Benign Prostate Hyperplasia
(BPH) or in simple terms, Enlarged Prostate*. Diet is the most important part of this talk
which is something within our control. and mind you, it really works!. Ok Gentlemen, I am here to speak now regarding your Prostate. The topic is misleading. *Is prostate strictly for men? Yes, ONLY men have prostate and generally
only men over 40 years are of concern� but the healthcare enlightenment is for everyone*
. There is no woman who does not know a man 40 years and above, father, uncle, brother,
son, friend, neighbor, colleague and so on.. Essentially what I will be doing today is
health promotion Responsible health promotion must provide
three things: 1. Information
2. Reassurance and
3. A plan OF action. Let me start with a background on prostate
health. Everyone has a pair of kidneys. The job of the kidney is to remove waste. It is the waste management company of your
body. Everyday your blood passes through the kidney
several times to be filtered. As the blood is filtered, urine is formed
and stored in a temporary storage tank called the urinary bladder. If there were to be no urinary bladder, as
a man walks on the road, urine will be dribling. Now think of the plumbing work in your house. Think of the urinary bladder as the overhead
storage tank. From the storage tank, a good plumber will
run pipes to other parts of the house, including the kitchen. God in His wisdom ran pipes from our urinary
bladder to the tip of the penis. The pipe is called the urethra. *Just below the bladder and surrounding the
urethra is a little organ called the prostate gland*. *The prostate gland is the size of a walnut
and weighs within 20grams normally. Its job is to make the seminal fluid which
is stored in the seminal vesicle. During sexual intercourse, seminal fluid comes
down the urethra and mixes with the sperms (male germ cells) produced in the testicles
to form the semen. So semen technically is not sperm. It is sperm + seminal fluid. The seminal fluid lubricates the sperm and
nourishes them. After age 40, for reasons that may be hormonal,
the prostate gland begins to enlarge. From 20 grams it may grow to almost 100 grams. As it enlarges, it squeezes the urethra and
the man begins to notice changes in the way he urinates. If you have a son under 10, if he has a little
mischief like we all did at that age, when he comes out to urinate, he can target the
ceiling and the jet will hit target. Call his father to do same, just kidding�.. His urine stream is weak, cannot travel a
long distance and sometimes may come straight down on his legs. So he may need to stand in awkward position
to urinate. Not many men will be worried their urine stream
cannot hit the ceiling. Toilets are on the floor and not on the ceiling. But other symptoms begin to show. like *TERMINAL DRIPPLING:* meaning The man begins to notice that *after urinating
and repacking, urine still drops on his pants*. This is the reason why after an older man
urinates, he has to ring bell. A younger man simply delivers to the last
drop and walks away. Just see an older man coming from the bathroom. Sometimes he may clutch the newspaper closely
to hide the urine stains, particularly on plain colored trousers. *HESISTANCY*meaning *At this point you wait longer for the urine
flow to start. There are 2 valves that must open for you
to urinate � the internal and external sphincters. Both open but because of obstructions in the
urethra, you wait long for the flow to start* . *INCOMPLETE EMPTYING* meaning *You have this feeling immediately after urinating
that there is still something left*. As all these things happen, the bladder begins
to work harder to compensate for the obstruction in the urethra. The frequency of urination goes up. Urgency sets in. sometimes you have to practically run into
the toilet. Nocturia (that�s nocturnal that�s night
time urge to pass urine) also becomes common. You wake up more than 2 – 3 times in a night
to urinate. Your wife begins to complain. Men being men may not talk to anyone even
at this point. Then the more serious complications start. *Stored urine gets infected* and there may
be burning sensation when urinating. *Stored urine can form crystals. Ca oxalate Crystals come together to form
stone either in the bladder or in the kidney. Stones may block the urethra or the ureters
and cause severe pains. *Chronic urinary retention sets in which might
cause irreversible obstructive nephropathy � that means your kidney damange*. The bladder stores more and more urine. The size of the bladder is 300 – 600 ml. As the bladder stores more urine it can enlarge
more and more. An overfilled bladder may leak and this leads
to wetting / urinary incontinence. Also the volume may put back pressure on the
kidneys and may lead to kidney damage that�s obstructive nephropathy. *What may likely bring the man to hospital
is acute urinary retention. He wakes up one day and he is not able to
pass urine.* *Everything I have described above is associated
with prostate enlargement, technically called benign prostate hyperplasia.BPH* There are other diseases of the prostate like: 1. *Prostatitis � inflammation of the prostate* 2. *Prostate cancer � cancer of the prostate*. This discussion is on general prostatic enlargement. I have bad news and good news. *The bad news is that everyman will have prostate
enlargement if he lives long enough*. *The good news is that there are life style
changes that can help the man after 40 to maintain optimum prostate health*. *NUTRITION* Look at what you eat. 33% of all cancers, according to the US National
Cancer Institute is related to what we eat. Red meat everyday triples your chances of
prostate disease. Milk everyday doubles your risk. Not taking fruits / vegetables daily quadruples
your risk. Tomatoes are very good for men. If that is the only thing your wife can present
in the evening, eat it with joy. It has loads of lycopene. *Lycopene is the most potent natural antioxidant.*
Foods that are rich in zinc are also good for men. *We recommend pumpkin seeds. Zinc is about the most essential element for
male sexuality and fertility. *Men need more zinc than women*. Every time a man ejaculates he loses 15mg
of zinc. Zinc is also important for alcohol metabolism. *Your liver needs zinc to metabolize alcohol.* *ALCOHOL CONSUMPTION* As men begin to have urinary symptoms associated
with prostate enlargement, it is important they look at alcohol consumption. More fluid in means more fluid out. So.. Reduce alcohol consumption. *EXERCISE* *Exercise helps build the muscle tone*. Every man should exercise. Men over 40 should avoid high impact exercise
like jogging. It puts pressure on the knees. Cycling is bad news for the prostate. We recommend brisk walking. *SITTING*
*When we sit, two-third of our weight rests on the pelvic bones. Men who sit longer are more prone to prostate*
symptoms. Do not sit for long hours. Walk around as often as you can. Sit on comfortable chairs. We recommend a divided saddle chair if you
must sit long hours. *DRESSING* Men should avoid tight underwear. It impacts circulation around the groin and
heats it up a bit. While the physiological temperature is 37
degrees, the groin has an optimal temperature of about 33 degrees. Pant is a no – no for men. Wear boxers. Wear breathable clothing. *SMOKING* Avoid smoking. It affects blood vessels and impact circulation
around the groin. *SEX* Regular sex is good for the prostate. Celibates are more prone to prostate illness. You know what I mean, it means people who
abstain from sex. Ok� While celibacy is a moral decision,
it is not a biological adaptation. *Your prostate gland is designed to empty
its contents regularly*. So The Final Thought: when someone shared
something of value with you and you benefit from it. *You have a moral obligation to share it with
others because someone in your friends list might be saved. So go on and start forwarding this informational
