Protect Yourself From Deadliest Diseases by Food Tips

Prostate cancer is an odd disease... It's incredibly common and incredibly slow-growing. In fact, if men lived 120 years, nearly everyone would get it... But it's so slow-growing, most men who develop it die of something else - often without any clue their prostate was diseased.

But it's not harmless... Prostate cancer kills about 30,000 men a year. To protect yourself, I urge you to check for these classic symptoms:

- Frequent urination
- Hesitancy with urination (hard to get started)
- Erectile dysfunction
- Burning with urination
- Pain in the lower back
- Stiffness in the upper legs

If you have these symptoms and you're older than 55, see your doctor to discuss the possibility of prostate cancer.

Ask your doctor to do a digital rectal exam (DRE) - it's not quite as bad as it sounds, just awkward. They should also get the blood level of a molecule called "prostate specific antigen" (PSA). These tests are simple and inexpensive...

Once you have a baseline level of both your prostate anatomy and the PSA test, you can follow things over time. If your symptoms worsen, you can compare to the first test... if the doctor also finds a change, it's time for treatment.

The most important part is finding a doctor who has a good record of catching prostate cancer early. Call a couple local oncologists (cancer doctors) and find out who sends them the most prostate cancer patients. Yes, just call up and ask for the information.

Finally, you should do a couple other things to protect yourself:

Ejaculating more than 12 times a month lowers the risk... 21 times a month is thought to be ideal.
Exercise. Walking just 30 minutes a day lowers your cancer risk.
Vitamin D is associated with decreased cancer risks... get more sunlight
Eat foods known to reduce cancer risk like:
 - Tomatoes: high in lycopene, which reduces prostate cancer risk.
 - Vegetables: cabbage, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, onions, carrots, and parsley are known to lower cancer risks.
 - Green tea and even black tea have known antioxidant and anti-cancer properties (from epigallocatechin 3-gallate  or EGCG).

If you are diagnosed with prostate cancer, strongly consider robotic surgery. The outcomes are identical, but the robotic surgeries are safer with faster recoveries than conventional surgeries. It's also less painful. This site offers a list of urologists who use robotics for their surgery.

Finally, be sure to find a doctor open to nontraditional methods of nurturing prostate health. Certain herbs may play a role in prostate health, but not always. Since I last wrote about its proposed benefits, saw palmetto was determined to be no different than a placebo for a milder prostate disease known as "benign prostate hypertrophy" (fancy term for a swollen prostate)...

The bottom line: avoid doctors that laugh at the notion that herbs might have benefits. But be sure they know the current literature and studies and don't have any financial conflicts with your health.

One of Easiest Exercise to Boost your Health

I have a practice you can try most anywhere and anytime... in your work clothes, your gym clothes, even naked in bed. It's simple to do, but it takes a little time. And I mean just a little time - 12 minutes is all it takes!

If you want to quickly improve your health and happiness, this activity does it. The best part is it takes very little effort. Paradoxically, the less effort you exert, the more benefit accrues. Any guesses what it is?

It's meditation.

The power of meditation comes from the "relaxation response" it elicits. Meditation actually changes our physiology. During meditation, our brain waves convert to a pattern that is as deep, and in some ways deeper than, sleep. And it is also more restful and recharging than a nap. Meditation releases chemicals that are the direct opposite of the so-called "stress hormones." These chemicals and hormones trigger pathways of healing and regeneration.

Regular meditation practice lowers your heart rate and increases both your blood's oxygen saturation and the delivery of oxygen to tissues. This is the exact same benefit of exercise. A Scientific American article from 1963 showed yogis can actually lower their heart rates to one or two beats a minute by invoking this "relaxation response." Now that's what I call relaxed!

Perhaps the best part, meditation has benefits identical to exercise but without the wear, tear, and stress on your body that comes with training too hard. Meditation can also:

• Increase your powers of concentration
• Help you live longer
• Reduce the number of visits to your doctor
• Reduce the likelihood of an admission to the hospital
• Improve your fertility
• Boost your immune system
• Increase your serotonin (the chemical that counters depression)
• Lower blood pressure more than any known drug

Of course, as with any lifestyle change, it is only effective if you do it!

So if you're looking for a simple way to get the benefits of exercise without the wear and tear and huffing and puffing...learn to meditate and practice it regularly. You'll be amazed at how good you'll feel.
