Besides medical history review and physical examination, diagnostic tests include the digital rectal exam (DRE), prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood test, and urine analysis.

Environmental Toxins
5445 Views | 0 Comments

Some of them may look friendly but they may just be killing you softly.

Environmental toxins are chemicals and other materials created largely from industrial operations and negligence. These chemicals have contaminated our water, food and the very air we breathe.

It is said in our lifetime, each of us will consume 100 times the amount of pesticides, chemicals, livestock hormones, and preservatives than our grandparents did. We failed to acknowledge their hazardous effects until we suffer from a chronic disease after years of exposure.

You come in contact with toxins every day. Most people are unaware of the things that can inflict the gravest threats to their health - even leaving greater effects than those caused by air pollution. It might be surprising to know that you may even be keeping a number of these toxic materials in your own household. Here are some of the things you might want to consider before your next shopping trip.

How they can cause you to age faster and develop degenerative diseases

The human body is made up of cells and cells are made up of atoms. Each atom has a nucleus surrounded by a cloud of electrons in pairs. In the event that an atom loses an electron, leaving it with an unpaired electron, the atom becomes a free radical. Free radicals are very reactive. When other stable atoms in the cell encounter a free radical, a chain reaction begins, which leads to cellular damage.

According to Dr. Dennis Harmon's free radical theory of aging, the body continuously produces free radicals, and constant free radical damage eventually kills cells. Free radicals oxidize just about anything they see available. They may damage cell membranes, DNA, and enzymes. This process of cell oxidation happens about 10,000 times every day for each of the trillion cells in the body. When this free radical reaction damages enough cells in the body, diseases begin to develop and the aging process accelerates.

Our Passion for Healthy Living - Tour de Trail Run

We finished the race with a smile. It is not about the time or position, it is about achievement.

"In running, it doesn't matter whether you come in first, in the middle of the pack, or last. You can say, 'I have finished.' There is a lot of satisfaction in that." - Fred Lebow, New York City Marathon co-founder

As serious as we are about health, we joined the Tour de Trail 3km run at Mac Ritchie on 26 September 2010.

Although, this was our second participation in a run, some of us still looked anxious. But others looked confidently ready.

It is NOT just about trouble sleeping.

Nocturia is better known as abnormally excessive urination during the night. It has recently been recognized as a clinical entity in its own right, meaning, it is not just simply regarded as a symptom, but rather a condition. It can occur at any age, although it is less frequent in the age range below 60 years, and becomes more common during prime years.

This condition could result from too much liquid intake before bed or it could be a symptom of a greater problem such as sleep apnea, urinary incontinence, bladder infection, and benign prostatic hyperplasia.

Using your Creative Built-In Mechanism for Success

There is something within you that can move your mountains!

Everyone in this world is hypnotized at at least one aspect. And that particular stronghold defines more than 80 percent of your self-image, upon which performance in life is based. Thus, it is important to learn how this so called built-in creative mechanism works as it is the one that constructs the way you see yourself.

Dr Maxwell Maltz, in his book The New PsychoCybernetics, talked about the built-in creative mechanism within each person on this planet. The author profoundly explained that this creative mechanism can either be a success creative mechanism or a failure creative mechanism, depending on what and how you feed it.

Tips to Maintain and Improve Prostate Health

You can optimize your long-term prostate health by:

1) Supplementing Diet

Take a daily multivitamin supplement which includes at least the following for supporting prostate health - Vitamin A (25,000 IU), Vitamin E (1,200 IU), and Lycopene (10 mg).

2) Increasing Soy Intake

Researchers believe that the increasing estrogen to testosterone ratio brought on by aging is one of the factors that adversely affects the size of the prostate gland. 2 ounces or more of soy in your daily diet will help decrease estrogen levels and restore proper estrogen to testosterone ratio that becomes skewed as men get into their 60s and beyond. Good sources of soy include tofu (soybean curd), miso, tempeh, roasted soy nuts, and soy flour or powder.
