Measure of a Man• Regular prostate exams (especially after the age of 40) are helpful.• PSA (Prostate Specific Antigen) is a blood test designed to pick up prostate tumor markers. Any elevation is an indicator of prostate cellular dysfunction. However not reliable, 80% are false positive. (U.S. Preventative Series Task Force 5/2012).
Exercise the Prostate• MDs and naturalists alike know that frequent monogamous sex keeps the prostate from getting stagnant and inflamed from congestion. It also helps rid the prostate of gravel or solid deposits.• Also don’t ignore the urge to go to the bathroom!• Kegel exercises are critical to pelvic floor.
