Natural Health and the Prostate

Men worry about physical and mental function as they age.   But aging can be limited.    This is an excellent natural health article in general with many great tips to get you healthy and educated on the subjects of natural health and prostate health. By Dr. Andrew Meyers The idea that aging is inevitable can be a difficult concept for many men to accept. Aging, from the male perspective, is frequently associated with loss of physical and mental function and vitality. The implied stigma that comes with aging often prevents men from dealing with important health issues associated with the process. The goal of this article is to dispel the idea that aging has to be a limiting factor and to shed light onsome key health concerns for the 40-plus man. As my father, is in his mid-50s, I am personally witnessing the changes men face as we age. My father has always been vital and physically fit; however, his body is changing andwith it, his perspective. Sports-related injuries have taken their toll on his mobility,and he has had to adopt new approaches to his overall health. If we examine aging from a holistic perspective, we can see important health considerations among mind, body, and spirit. Whole health When we look at the aging process, some clear-cut research findings apply. We know from numerous studies that a whole foods diet high in fiber, low in saturated fat, and rich in nutrients is the best health-promoting approach.  Eating fresh vegetables and fruits rich in antioxidant nutrients and fiber helps reduce the risk factors for cancer. Consistent moderate exercise promotes cardiovascular...

Benefits of Pollen Extracts

Men who deal with infertility in smaller measures may benefit from the same supplement as those with prostate problems.  Prostate issues can often be tracked back to decreased fertility in males, even many years earlier.  The signs may just not have been seen.  Consider the article below and how it may relate to you. What about pollen? People sometimes confuse pollen with pollen extracts. Pollen is the substance found in plants that fertilizes other, like plants.  It consists of fine, powdery, yellowish grains or spores, sometimes in masses.  Bees collect this for the hive.  When this pollen is gathered from bees and the bee hive it is generally known as bee pollen. In a pollen extract, the pollen is gathered from plants and then is extracted in the laboratory. Bee pollen is also known as a healthful food and as a general tonic fo good health. Many athletes use it, as it is said to enhance performance. For more information on bee pollen and AIM Mountain Meadow Bee Pollen™. Pollen and pollen extracts have long been used to maintain good health.  Perhaps the better-known pollen product is bee pollen, which has been used as a tonic for centuries.   Another pollen product, pollen extract, is beginning to become known for helping to maintain urogenital health. Literature on pollen extract focuses on three physiological effects:  Smooth muscle contraction, anti-inflammatory action, and effects on enzymes. Smooth muscle contraction is important in prostate problems because muscle contraction plays a role in allowing the bladder to void. When the muscles at the neck of the bladder are tense, urinary problems may result. Spasms...

Dribbling Into Middle Age

Men! Are your nights interrupted by frequent trips to the bathroom? Do you groan in agony when you see a “next rest stop, 69 miles” sign on the road?  Have you given up basketball games because you’re doing more dribbling than the players? If so, you’ve truly entered middle age and are experiencing the one problem that nearly all men share: Prostate problems, especially benign prostatic hyperplasia. The prostate is a donut-shaped, chestnut-sized gland located below the bladder. More important is that it surrounds the urethra, the tube through which urine flows from the bladder. If the prostate is inflamed or enlarged, as is often the case with prostat problems, it can push against the urethra, pinching it and causing it to narrow. Theresult is the same as when you pinch your garden hose; the water dribbles out. To compensate for the narrowing of the urethra, the muscular wall of the bladder contracts more strongly to expel urine. This increased “exercise” leads to the thickening of the bladder wall and a decrease in its urine capacity. The bladder will hold less and less urine, resulting in having to urinate more and more. Basically, there is nothing you can do to keep the prostate from enlarging as you age.When in your 20s, 30s, and 40s, the prostate remains much the same size, but when you hitthe big five-zero it starts growing. By age 85 just about every male has some prostate growth. This growth is generally known as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Known traditionally as “old man’s disease” because so many elderly men develop it, various reports state that 50...

Bee pollen is a substance that bees collect from flowers to use as food. When a bee climbs into a flower to gather nectar, it brushes the flower stamen, which holds pollen. The pollen is collected in tiny baskets at the back of the bee’s legs. It is taken back to the hive, and enzymes and nectar are added to it to create bee pollen. This pollen is then used to feed the young. Bee pollen is often referred to as “the bread of bees.” What nutrients are found in bee pollen? Bee pollen is one of the few foods that, in itself, is life sustaining. This is because it contains everything we need: It is 25 percent vegetable protein (including at least 18 amino acids and all eight essential amino acids) and contains more than a dozen vitamins, 28 minerals, 11 enzymes and coenzymes, and carbohydrates.

Horny Goat Weed and Infertility; Sex is fun again.

What a name for an article, right? Well, the truth is that many of the things one benefits from for fertility are actually just aphrodisiacs.  When things are right in the bedroom, things are very often right for the nursery.  As alternative therapies go, Fertile Male is something worth looking into. I was approached by someone about a new product that contains these herbs and whole foods.  How much easier could it be to take a couple of capsules at the kitchen counter and end up in the bedroom?  Most of the supplements for men we carry are specific but this is an overall tonic. Fertile Male is for it all; improve sperm count production, male libido and enhanced fertility, semen production, improves testosterone, maintains or even improves B6 and more benefits. Fertile Lady has the same ingredients with a feminine name because it restores libido and healthy sexual function in women as well. Especially for fertility in older pre or perimenopausal women.  Horny Goat Weed is also available as a single herb.  (New label coming.)  Click on any of the bottles to take you to our store. I thought I would never be posting about this subject because there are so many junk products out there, put out there by creeps.  I know how many emails we all get about Viagra in our in boxes.  But here I am saying that this is a powerful combination of herbs and whole food and it may be worth a try.  Think about it.  When sexuality is waning it does NOT feel like the time to be making love.  It feels...

Poor semen quality, thick mucus, cystic fibrosis; what do they have in common?

Let’s start with the mucus part. I’ve posted a webpage below that may be hard to understand.  It basically talks about the the affects of l-arginine on CF patients.  L-arginine is an amino acid which changes the viscosity (thickness) of mucus.  This makes the semen a healthier environment. L-arginine has many other strengths having to do with the heart, digestive track and lungs as well. Someone wrote to me about her husband having cystic fribrosis and thinking he should not have children.  Wow, I  can so understand that feeling.  I also see that she was caring about her baby in the way we talk about here; ahead of time. The great news is that there ARE natural ways to overcome the large issues, like Cystic Fibrosis as well as the smaller problems like thick semen. These problems stem from the body’s inability to produce mucus properly.  Let’s look at that, shall we?  The same applies to women with thick mucus so pay attention. I immediately thought of l-arginine because I have a stood behind a product I carry for years for men with thick, acidic, unhealthy semen and for women cervical mucus.  The eternal search for egg-white-quality mucus. Here is an article below that is intense but if you just read slowly is a good one.  CF sufferers can benefit from it as well. Cystic Fibrosis and L-arginine article Natural supplements can be applied to infertility in all manners of situations.  Too often we separate the body in our minds.  We believe that the endocrine system and the respiratory systems are not connected, as far as needs.  NOT so. ...
