Prostate Health Guide

Step #1: Detoxification of Rectum and Urogenital Tract

The fact is, over 50% of all men over 50 have problems urinating. They get up constantly at night and even experience embarrassing situations because of the need to frequently urinate. Many men have enlarged prostates, and it is beginning to affect more and more young men. The cause: The bottom portion of the body is the garbage dump of our body. In the intestines and the urinary tract, everything happily accumulates, leading to problems in the long run. Fatigue, pain, the excessive urge to urinate – all of these can be first signs of it. Erection problems and loss of libido come next. And indeed, the frequency of severe intestinal and prostate diseases seems to be increasing in the western world. Regular, natural detoxification, ensures that the rectum and urogenital tract are able to perform their functions properly again. It is quite simple. We fall back on the centuries-old knowledge of the Mamo Indians from the Sierra Nevada region of Colombia.

Step #2: Change the diet – What’s Good for the Prostate ?

It is very worthwhile to change your diet. The positive effects of the right composition for our diet on our health have been scientifically confirmed. A prostate-friendly diet should be low in fat and ideally vegetarian. Plenty of liquid (clean, bacteria-, heavy metal- and toxin-free water!), organic vegetables, fresh fruit, fiber and polyunsaturated fatty acids are the basis. The Mediterranean and also the Asian cuisines offer the best basis for this diet.

Alternative: Asian cuisine

Benign prostate hyperplasia and prostate cancer are more common in western industrialized countries than in Asia. While 90% of men over 70 in Europe and North America have benign prostate hyperplasia, in Japan and China, less than 10% experience this disease. If Japanese or Chinese men emigrate to the USA, prostate cancer will double within two generations. Asian food is healthier because it contains many unsaturated fatty acids, fiber and phytoestrogens. Phytoestrogens can be found in soy products, for example.

Alternative: Mediterranean cuisine:

Around the Mediterranean, there are regions with healthy eating habits. Fish and healthy olive oil, which are frequently consumed, contain high-quality, polyunsaturated fatty acids. Fresh fruit and vegetables provide fiber and secondary plant substances. Moderate consumption of red wine proves to be a protective factor against cardiovascular diseases. Red wine contains the phytoestrogen resveratrol, which protects the cells through its antioxidant effects. The flavonoids in red wine have a very positive effect on cholesterol levels.

The Right Balance

In order to implement your change of diet correctly, the balance must be correct. Energy supply and consumption must be in the right proportion to each other. Goal: a healthy body weight with a body mass index between 18 and 25.

Overweight is a risk factor for prostate cancer! The risk of prostate cancer and the risk of cardiovascular diseases increases with the fat content of the food. Above all, saturated fatty acids from meat consumption are bad for the body. Polyunsaturated vegetable fats (e.g. cold-pressed olive oil) are very healthy and protect against cancer and cardiovascular diseases.

Check Your Energy Sources !

The daily calorie requirement of a man depends on the basal metabolic rate of the body and physical activity average, coming in at about 2500 kcal per day. The main sources of energy are carbohydrates, fats and proteins. The body needs these three components in order to remain healthy and ready to perform. Fat provides twice as much energy as the same amount of carbohydrates. 100 grams of carbohydrates provide 430 kcal. The same amount of fat contains 930 kcal. Tip: Do not consume more than 1 gram of fat per kg of body weight per day.  Proteins are formed from amino acids. 100 grams of protein is equal to about 410 kcal. Not all amino acids can be produced by the body itself. Therefore, you should consume about 1 gram of high-quality protein (essential amino acids) per kg of body weight daily with your diet.

Eat Dietary Fiber!

Vegetable dietary fiber (the non-digestible components of vegetable foods) plays an important role in our organism, which is found in whole grain cereals, legumes such as lentils, beans, chickpeas, in salads, fruits and vegetables. Dietary fiber promotes intestinal activity and contributes to a healthy feeling of satiety. Tip: In the morning, stir one tablespoon of psyllium seeds and one tablespoon of psyllium seed shells into 150 ml of water and drink immediately!

Lots of Liquid, Preferably Clean Water !

Our body needs water because 70% of our body consists of water. The fluid requirement is dependent on nutrient turnover, fluid consumption through sweating and heart and kidney activity.  With 2.5 liters, an adult should get along well daily with normal physical activity. Note: What are the top 3 drinks? Water, water and water! Tip: Pay attention to a which is a good source and avoid plastic bottles – for your own health.   An ideal alternative is, for example, a mobile water filter next to your drinking water faucet.


Tip: we have been using the British Berkefeld ATC Sterasyl Gravity Water Filter for years – at home or on the road.

Unlike most reverse osmosis filters, the British Berkefeld water filter does not destroy the healthy minerals in tap water, but removes bacteria, heavy metals, organic and inorganic compounds and pesticides. It allows healthy minerals to pass through. There is also no plastic waste produced by exchange filters when using the British Berkefeld filter, since the ceramic filter cartridges only need to be replaced after about 3000 liters. This saves you having to carry plastic or glass bottles and, of course, the burden on the environment. Here is the latest independent test (Download). By the way: according to a recent Canadian study, those who drink their water from plastic bottles all year round consume an average of 90000 plastic particles – in tap water it is “only” 4000.
Very important: the water tastes great!


What to watch out for when switching to a more plant-based diet ?

In order to enjoy the benefits and the different effects of secondary plant substances, it is advisable to have as varied a plant diet as possible.  It is particularly important to ensure that the bioactive substances are preserved during preparation:

Pay attention to freshness! Fresh and ripe fruit and vegetables have the highest content of secondary plant substances and vitamins. It is best to store food only for a short time. You can also fall back on frozen food!

Attention: Heat sensitivity! You will only find everything a plant has to offer in raw food. If you do cook it, then only cook for a short time using the right fat and at a low temperature.

Tip: Use the cooking liquid as a sauce!

Think of the skin respective the peel of the vegetable or fruit! A large part of the dietary fibers and secondary plant substances are in the peel to protect the plant from external influences. Do not peel apples, eat the white skin of citrus fruits, brush root vegetables well and use whole grain instead of white flour products.

Secondary plant substances – where can I find them?

Secondary plant substances are found in fruits, vegetables, pulses and cereals… They have a “secondary” purpose such as fragrances, aromas and coloring. In this way, they protect the plants from environmental influences and pests. The “primary” ingredients of the plants, namely carbohydrates, proteins and fats, provide the supporting structure of the cell.

Secondary plant substances only occur in very small amounts in our food. We only consume about 1.5 g of them per day. Like vitamins, secondary plant substances are not produced in our bodies, but must be ingested with food.

List of secondary plant substances – divided into 9 groups:

  • Carotenoids

    Occurrence: Salad, spinach, peas, pumpkin, tomato, peppers, apricot, broccoli

    Purpose: Dye

    Effect: Antioxidant for cell protection; some carotenoids contribute to the build-up of vitamin A and thus to vision health

  • Polyphenols

    Occurrence: All plants

    Purpose: Phenolic acids as dyes and flavonoids as flavoring agents

    Effect: Antioxidant for strengthening the immune system and protection against cancer

    • Phytosterols

      Occurrence: Seeds, legumes and nuts

      Effect: Reduces cholesterol to protect against cardiovascular diseases

    • Glycosylates

       

      Occurrence: Cruciferous plants (mustard, cabbage, cress, horseradish)

      Purpose: Spicy flavor

      Effect: Cancer protection after enzymatic activation in the digestive tract

    • Sulfides

       

      Occurrence: Lily plants (onions, leeks, asparagus, garlic)

      Effect: Cancer protection after enzymatic activation in the digestive tract

    • Protease Inhibitors

       

      Occurrence: Legumes, cereals

      Effect: Anti-inflammatory, regulation of blood sugar, cancer protection

    • Terpenes

       

      Occurrence: Peppermint, caraway, citrus fruits

      Purpose: Fragrant and aromatic substance

      Effect: Cancer protection

    • Phytoestrogens*

       

      Occurrence: Legumes, cereals

      Effect: Cancer protection effect in hormone-dependent cancers such as breast, uterine and prostate cancers

    • Saponins

       

      Occurrence: Legumes (peas, lentils, soybeans)

      Purpose: Fragrant and aromatic substance

      Effect: Cancer protection, lowers cholesterol to protect against cardiovascular diseases


      * Hormones affect the prostate. The relationship between the female sex hormone estrogen and the male sex hormone testosterone affects the growth of prostate cells. Phytoestrogens are secondary plant substances and resemble the body’s own hormone estradiol. They are mainly found in legumes (beans, lentils, chickpeas) and cereals. Phytoestrogens influence the balance of hormones and thus regulate prostate growth.

Step # 3: Move, Don’t Sit!

Keep Your Body Moving! 

Walk at least 10,000 steps a day, preferably at an increased speed – this will immediately stimulate your heart and circulation. Sitting and sluggishness promote intestinal and prostate diseases.  Jogging, swimming, cycling, ball sports are of course welcome supplements. However, if you can plan your working day well – always build in half an hour in the morning and half an hour in the evening. The pedometer on your mobile phone gives you daily information about your performance.

 

Sitting is the new smoking!

Scientists and physicians have long agreed that sitting as a permanent condition is one of the worst postures for the human body. They have good arguments and many insights for this. The German health insurance group AOK writes:

If you sit in the wrong, supposedly comfortable position, your abdominal muscles atrophy. This, in turn, can cause the back to deform into a rounded back. If the hunchback continues to form, the intervertebral discs are subjected to an uneven load and are now poorly supplied with nutrients. Stress and poor lighting lead to further tensions in the back, often resulting in subsequent complaints such as headaches. The internal organs are trapped, especially the respiratory and digestive organs. As a result of a lack of blood circulation, muscle hardening and muscle tension occur. A lack of movement gradually leads to atrophy of the muscles. The cardiovascular system is not sufficiently trained. Therefore, Try implementing a standing activity as often as your work allows. A desk that can be raised flexibly, whether at home or in the office is an ideal solution for this.
