Prostate massage reduces cancer risk
by Lisa S. Lawless, Ph.D.
(NaturalNews) While one in six men in the U.S. is diagnosed with prostate cancer, studies show that prostate massage helps to reduce the risks. In addition, men who have tried it show an increase in libido, sexual performance and satisfaction. Prostate massage is also helpful in treating prostatitis (inflammation of the prostate gland) as well as hemorrhoids and fissures.
Prostate cancer typically does not affect men until after the age of 50, however, more men in their 40's and even their 30's are being diagnosed. It has been reasoned by medical professionals that this is due to poor nutritional intake from processed foods and the pollution of the environment, which, of course, affects drinking water as well as air and soil quality.
The male prostate is also called the p-spot, as it provides pleasurable sensations similar to that of the g-spot in a female, which is why prostate massage is not only healthy but enjoyable. The prostate can be stimulated both externally through pressure against the perineum and internally through the rectum. Stimulation through the rectum is more direct, intense and typically provides better results.
The prostate is located about 2 - 2.5 inches inside the rectum and can be felt by inserting your finger facing upward toward the stomach. It is a small bump about the size of a walnut and a pleasant pressure can be felt when it is pressed against. However, because reaching around to massage it can be uncomfortable or awkward, many men use prostate massagers in order to better access and stimulate it by themselves or with a partner.
Vibrating prostate massagers are also popular, as they increase the stimulation and blood flow to the area. In some cases, this has been quite helpful in treating ejaculation issues as well as erectile dysfunction (ED), as the vibration is extremely effective in producing prostate fluid and more potent ejaculations.
Those men with a healthy prostate find that doing prostate massage once a month is beneficial; while those that have issues with a swollen prostate find that weekly prostate massages help to reduce swelling and improve urinary and sexual performance.

Additional preventative measures:
Increasing frequency of orgasms:
In 2004, a study by the AMA showed that men who had 21 or more orgasms per month were thirty percent less likely to develop prostate cancer than those who had fewer than 7 per month.
A study conducted through the Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) found that men who drank 6 or more cups of coffee per day had a twenty percent less chance of developing any form of prostate cancer.
Eating foods with high lycopene levels:
Lycopene inhibits prostate cancer and can easily be consumed in foods such as tomatoes, guavas, watermelon, grapefruit, parsley, basil, persimmons, asparagus and red cabbage.
The Harvard School of Public Health has shown that exercise reduces the risk of fatal forms of prostate cancer by forty-one percent.
Eating healthy fatty acids:
Consuming omega-3 fatty acids, DHA and EPA, at least 3 times per week reduced the risk of prostate cancer by twenty-five percent.
