Have You Had Your Prostate Screened?
One of the major health problems facing Hispanic American men today is Benign Prostate Hyperplasia (BPH). This occurs when the prostate slowly enlarges and presses against the bladder and the urethra. This can cause urological symptoms such as frequency (urinating much more often than normal), urgency (having a sensation that you need to urinate immediately), nocturia (getting up multiple times during the night), and hesitancy (difficulty urinating). This condition is non-cancerous and the major culprit for such male dilemma is aging, since it tends to affect men over the age of 50.
The risk is higher for Hispanic American men as well as African American men. According to the Centers for Disease Control and prevention, 39 percent of Hispanic men did not visit a doctor or health professional in the past 12 months. The barriers that conduct the lack of action towards this condition among Hispanic American men are due to low income, the access to health care, language and cultural disparity, fear, and other factors that can make it hard to achieve good health.
The National Cancer Institute (NCI) states that the prostate gland is about the size of a walnut when a man is in his 20s. By the time he is 40, it may have grown slightly larger, to the size of an apricot seed. By age 60, it may be the size of a lemon. Because of this progressive enlargement, BPH can be bothersome for some men. To help alleviate the frequent urinary disorders caused by BPH, Natura-Genics® offers a comprehensive supplement Prostate Gland Kit™ that is made up of natural vitamins, minerals (zinc), herbs (saw palmetto), and prostate gland extract as well as beta sitosterol. For best results this can be combined with Flaxseed Oil since this essential fatty acid seems to be beneficial to prostate enlargement. Prostalex Complex™ may also help with prostate enlargement and prostate disorders. Since BPH is an inflammation we also recommend the use of Inflammex™.
In order to achieve optimum health you have to discipline yourself by eating healthy (living foods), exercising regularly, drinking plenty of water, resting, as well as taking the recommended supplements.
