Reduce inflammatory foods – Avoid sugar, processed foods, fried foods, red meat, processed meats, gluten and alcohol to keep your prostate healthy.
Increase anti-inflammatory foods – Consuming a diet rich in organic fruits and vegetables, Omega 3’s (from Wild Alaskan Salmon), high fiber foods, walnuts and especially pumpkin seeds will help to reduce inflammation.
Reduce stress – Stress increases inflammation, which can lead to prostatitis, BPH or even prostate cancer.
Exercise – Find the movement that you enjoy. Some men reduce stress by going on a vigorous run or bike ride, while others prefer a leisurely walk or yoga to get relaxed. Either way, it is important to get moving!
Work life balance – Bringing balance to your daily routine isn’t always easy. It takes soul searching and reflecting to get to where we want to go. Keep in mind that creating work-life balance is a continuous process and it doesn’t happen overnight. Remember to examine your priorities and make changes, if necessary, to make certain you are on track and being true to yourself.
Natural herbal supplements – Herbs like saw palmetto, nettle root, rosemary and green tea are known to help promote normal urine flow and healthy prostate function. Turmeric and ginger are also anti-inflammatory herbs, with many side benefits (instead of side effects).
Wellness coaches can play an excellent role in guiding and supporting you in this area. This will ensure that you are being given the very best, effective, and comprehensive overall plan to reduce inflammation, prevent prostate enlargement, and promote healthy prostate function.
