Preventing Prostate Cancer
1. Try a Mediterranean Diet
A study found in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute showed that men who eat over 10g of scallions or garlic a day end up halving their chances of getting prostate cancer halved, compared to those men who consumed less than 2g a day. The Mediterranean diet also typically includes red wine, which contains resveratrol, an antioxidant that may stop the growth of prostate cancer.
2. Love Yourself Regularly
According to a recent Australian study, men who masturbate five or more times a week were 34% less likely to get prostate cancer by the time they reached 70. Graham Giles, Ph.D., the lead study author, says that "seminal fluid contains substances that are carcinogenic,” and that "regular ejaculation may help flush them out."
Treating Prostate Cancer
1. Consume More Herbs
Scientists from the Center for Holistic Urology at Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center in New York City have discovered that a mixture of herbs including rosemary, ginger, green tea, and oregano decreased prostate cancer cell growth by 78%. This herbal blend is commonly sold under the brand name, Zyflamend. Scientists believe that this works by inhibiting the activity of COX-2, which is a protein linked to the cancer's progression.
2. Use CAD (Computer-Assisted Doctor)
If you decide to use a prostatectomy to solve the problem, you may want to consider getting the new robot-assisted version done, which is far less intrusive and has a lower recovery time. Data from the Vattikuti Urology Institute at the Henry Ford Health System in Detroit shows that 50% fewer men became impotent and 90% fewer men became incontinent after having a CAD prostatectomy performed on them in comparison with traditional methods.
3. Restore Your Erections
The cavernous nerves, which are responsible for causing erections, often suffer after a prostate removal. This can obviously wreak havoc on your sex life, however taking a nerve graft from your ankle as a replacement has been found to be a highly effective solution. If you decide to go down this route, then the only side effect you should experience is a slight numbness in your foot.
