Prostate cancer is a disease which only affects men. Cancer begins to grow in the prostate - a gland in the male reproductive system.

As with most diseases the exact cause is not known, however some of the suspected causes are inadequate nutrition: especially with green and surprisingly enough orange vegetables: medications, inactivity, obesity, exposure to chemical toxicity, overconsumption of alcohol and poor lifestyle habits.

What is the prostate?

The prostate is an exocrine gland of the male reproductive system, and exists directly under the bladder, in front of the rectum.

An exocrine gland is one whose secretions end up outside the body e.g. prostate gland and sweat glands. It is approximately the size of a walnut.

Prostate is involved with Urine control

As the urethra goes through the prostate: the prostate gland is also involved in urine control (continence) with the use of prostate muscle fibres.

These muscle fibers in the prostate contract and release, controlling the flow of urine flowing through the urethra.

So taking into consideration that your urinary system is one of your detoxification processes within your body. Therefore responsible for supporting the elimination of toxins.

It also is mentioned glands, male reproduction and muscle fibres.

Taking into consideration there are three main elements here, so let's try to keep it simple as to how we can best support this system. Therefore we can then work toward improving the health of your prostate gland.

The aim here with this article is to help you to understand the importance of your diet, the foods you include, the importance of exercise and the importance of assisting your body with the detoxification process, supporting healthy kidney function and ensuring that your body is getting adequate vitamins and minerals.

So my question here to you do you want to be fit, healthy and active plus continent all of your Life, if your answer is YES then read on:


You can assist your body to detox throughout your life by implementing these daily strategies:
•drinking WATER every day 2 - 2 1/2 litres, preferably filtered
•drink 1 - 2 cups of Green tea per day
•drink 1 cup of Roasted Dandelion Tea per day
•Do not use chemical based underarm deodorants (in a spray bottle add 1 teaspoon bi carb, 1/2 fill with apple cider vinegar let settle then top up with filtered water) Very effective underarm deodorant
•1 teaspoon of Bi Carb in a glass of water per day prior to going to bed (alkalizes your system, therefore reduces acidity)
•Green vegetables such as broccoli, kale, spinach and dark green lettuces

What to Eat:

Let's not get into what you can't eat, but what you need to eat:

Great Nutrition is your platform for a Great Life:

Fresh food eg meat and chicken from the butcher, fish from the fish market, fruit and vegetables from the Fruit and Vegetables shop
•Breakfast: Ok you don't eat breakfast - Let's say you do then you could have porridge (just plain old rolled oats) a teaspoon of honey; Ok full cream milk if you must otherwise Almond milk or A2 Full Crème milk is preferable; or you could have two poached eggs on wholegrain toast with spinach and some smoked salmon . If you must have bacon only occasionally fat free with no rind. Otherwise if you are on the run then a Smoothie whereby you can include a green apple, 1/2 cup broccoli, 1/2 cup kale, 1 x banana, 1/2 cup berries,1 tablespoon of maca power and 1/2 cup coconut juice
•Morning Smoko (Or Morning tea): 1 handful of dry roasted almonds and a Vaallia vanilla yogurt: Ok you want something different a grilled chicken wrap from McDonalds if you must.
•Lunch: I would suggest that for your dinner the night before cook a little extra and you can take that if possible, maybe add a salad for some fresh produce.
•Afternoon Smoko (Or Afternoon tea): a red apple and a cup of green tea (if you are a tradesperson then you could have made this up in a flask (thermos) to take with you.
•Dinner: OK meat and three vegetables out the window, we want to have meat, that is red lean meat 2 - 3 times per week: chicken breast fillets or thighs 2 - 3 times a week and fish at least twice a week. If for some reason you can't eat fish then you will need to add to your smoothie or pour over your vegies or salad a tablespoon of flaxseed oil per day. Now for the difference you will need 4 - 5 vegetables these can include; sweet potato, cabbage, carrots, pumpkin, parsnips, kale, brussel sprouts and broccoli. You may well find a salad quicker this can be easy with baby spinach, rocket, diced carrot, capsicum, tomato, cucumber, radishes and you can even add some extra flavour with pear, apple or mango.
•An evening snack can just be some plain old popcorn cooked in a saucepan using olive oil or coconut oil (this adds a great flavour whereby you don't have to add anything). You can use a combination of olive and coconut oil. You could have some fruit if you have not had any during the day with some yogurt

Eating Out whilst not breaking your healthy rules is all here just follow the link.

Vegetables and fruit are vitally important not only for their nutritional content, they play a vital role with detoxification and nutrient uptake into your organs and tissue.

Exercise is Vitally important for Healthy muscle function, now you know how exercise, weights etc. keep your external muscles tones and terrific well the same happens with your internal muscles which to name a few include your vital organs such as your heart, your bowels and guess what you urinary system. So if you want to avoid incontinence exercise is very necessary. Walking a half an hour a day, doing some stomach toning exercises. It can be as simple as that or you can join a gym whereby you will get some support and company to exercise with.

Balanced Lifestyle: Look you know we need to have healthy relationships, we need to be honest and true firstly to ourselves and to engage in habits that are going to stand us in good stead for a great healthy life so that we don't spend the last 20 or so years in and out of Doctors surgeries and Hospitals.
