Enlarged prostate is a condition that is more common with men over the age of 50 years. If you happen to be dealing with this issue presently, now is the time to make some changes to help ease the suffering.
The 3 major changes you need to make are:
1.) Reduce The Amount Of Drinks You Take
You have to stick to only water; there is no need for coffee, tea and soft drinks anymore. Since you are also trying to reduce how many times you go to urinate, you need to cautious about your fluid intake.
Do NOT drink water just before going to sleep. The same also goes with other fluids like coffee, beer, wine etc. stay away from them when it is time for you to sleep.
And when you stay away from consuming unnecessary fluids, you may still be battling with the constant urge to pass urine.
Whenever you are in the toilet, urinate and later relax for a while, then start urinating again. By doing this you would be making sure that your bladder is completely empty so that you would not have to go to the toilet again just to urinate.
During cold weather your urge to urinate increases. A simple way to combat this is to stay warm by wearing thicker clothes to trap your body heat.
2.) Be Mindful Of The Kinds Of Foods You Eat
If you have an enlarged prostate, the kinds of foods that you consume are very important! This is because there are some foods that can aggravate this condition. Here are some bad foods that you need to eliminate from your diet:
Processed Meat and Red Meat – When meat is not properly cooked, it tends to have a lot of heterocyclic amines which are known to be carcinogenic and can aggravate your enlarge prostate.
If you want to be on the safe side of things, then stay away from meat based products like:
- Lunch meats
- Hot dogs
Whole Milk – If you had a healthy prostate, whole milk is not going to be a problem for you. However, the problem is when you have an enlarged prostate. There is a study that was published by the Journal of Nutrition which suggests that drinking whole milk regularly increased the progression of prostate cancer in men who have an enlarged prostate.
So, if you want to prevent this condition from worsening, severely limit your whole milk intake. If you have to take milk, ensure that it is fat-free milk. Instead eat more of these foods to improve the health of your prostate:
- Sesame seeds
- Bell peppers
3.) Engage In Regular Exercise
