(NaturalNews) The prostate gland is a key player in the male reproductive system in that it secretes a good % of the makeup of male sperm. The gland is about the size of a walnut and sits just below the bladder in men. A common health problem today is prostate inflammation and cancer. Fortunately, this disorder is completely preventable and reversible through a healthy lifestyle.

Common symptoms associated with prostate enlargement include frequent urination, urinary urgency, difficulty starting, reduced force of the urine stream, terminal dribbling, incomplete emptying of the bladder and the inability to urinate at all. It is believed that most men experience some level of prostate enlargement by the age of 45 but many do not have symptoms. By the age of 60, it is believed that 80% of all men experience some sort of urinary problems due to prostate enlargement.

The prostate gland was designed to filter toxins and impurities out of the semen to produce its finest sperm product for conception and reproduction of a strong healthy species. The most common impurity in our systems today are xenoestrogens or man-made estrogen mimicking molecules. These chemicals disrupt the normal male estrogen-testosterone balance and lead to unwanted prostatic growth. As with any degenerative disease, oxidative stress from excess free radicals and inflammatory agents are also critical factors in prostatitis and prostatic carcinomas.

An anti-inflammatory diet rich in phytonutrients from fresh fruit and vegetables is critical. Eliminating all processed grains, meats, & dairy products is essential. Load the diet up with good fat sources such as avocados, olive oil, coconut oil, nuts, & seeds. Grass-fed and free-range meat products are an option. Use natural anti-inflammatory based herbs such as cinnamon, oregano, turmeric, ginger, garlic, & rosemary.

The prostate depends on a healthy amount of circulation to bring fresh blood and oxygen in this region. A sedentary lifestyle creates congestion and stagnation in the prostate. Certain population groups are at a higher risk than others. These are people who spend longer periods in a seated position with increased pressure from automobile vibrations. This includes truck drivers, bus drivers, motorcycle riders, pilots, & people with long daily commutes. Another group at risk for prostatic problems includes bicycle riders since they experience increased pressure in the groin as they ride.

Certain nutritional compounds are particularly good for preventing and reversing inflammation of the prostate. Cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, broccoli sprouts, kale, collard greens, & cabbage contain Indole -3-Carbonyl, isothiocyanates and sulforaphane which helps remove excess estrogens and other toxins from the body. These phytonutrients also destroy cancerous cells. Lycopene is an anti-oxidant normally found in the prostate but it declines with age and poor lifestyle. Fill your lycopene stores with grapefruits, tomatoes, red peppers, gogi berries, & raspberries.

Zinc plays a critical role in enzymatic function, immunity, & reproductive health. Prostate issues are very commonly associated with zinc deficiencies. Eat pumpkin seeds which are rich in zinc and have been shown to diminish the triggering of prostate cell multiplication. Drink anti-oxidant rich teas such as ginger, saw palmetto, and decaf green tea for an extra dose of anti-oxidants and phytochemicals to assist the body in the detoxification cycles necessary for a healthy prostate.

Prostate Health Action Steps:
1) Normalize your vitamin D levels in the 70-100 ng/ml range with full body sun exposure, and/or emulsified vitamin D supplements.
2)Follow a phytonutrient rich anti-inflammatory diet
3)Use a high quality omega 3 supplement
4)Do quarterly detox protocols using anti-oxidants & herbs
5)Get regular exercise (not including biking)
6)Avoid plastics, deodorants, shampoos and anything else with xenoestrogenic substances.
