Prostate Health Guide

Over 233,000 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer each year and almost 30,000 die. There are other common prostate issues such as enlarged prostate due to benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH), or prostatitis. Prostate health is one of the most crucial aspects to a man's health.


Prostate Health Guide 

The best way to prevent prostate problems is with a healthy lifestyle. There are many natural ways to promote better prostate health, even if men already have symptoms or a diagnosis. 

If a man already is experiencing prostate troubles, these natural changes can help keep these conditions from getting worse, help relieve symptoms, and even help cure them.

Chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome

  • Difficult to treat, often-painful inflammatory condition
  • Antibiotics do not work
  • Changing diet and lifestyle, trying alternative and natural treatments such as stress-relieving techniques is the only successful approach to symptom relief


  • Green tea & hibiscus tea – top drinks for prostate health
    • Green tea:
      • High in antioxidants
      • Studies show green tea can help prostate cancer and may slow growth of aggressive prostate cancer
      • Can also help BPH and prostatitis
    • Choose caffeine-free tea
      • Caffeine can irritate the prostate and bladder
      • Study found that men who consumed 234 mg or more of caffeine each day were 72% more likely to experience urinary incontinence compared to men who drank the least amount of caffeine
      • If you have urinary or pain symptoms due to prostatitis, caffeine can make these symptoms worse
      • If you have BPH or prostatitis, make an effort to reduce your caffeine intake by cutting back on coffee, soda or energy drinks

  • Stay hydrated, drink plenty of water
    • Do not drink less to reduce urine


  • Moderate or vigorous exercise reduces risk of BPH and urinary tract symptoms, studies show
  • Also helps with prostatitis, cardiovascular health, and can help prevent sexual problems (i.e. erectile dysfunction)
  • If overweight, losing weight is one of the most important natural changes you can make to improve prostate health
    • Study published in the Journal of Urology found that overweight men, especially men with a high amount of abdominal fat, have an increased risk of BPH
    • Can help reduce prostate size and help relieve frustrating urinary symptoms
