Every man wants a healthy prostate, which is the mysterious factory of your sexual powers! The prostate is the male sex gland that produces semen and emits this white or gray liquid from the urethra (tube in the penis) during ejaculation. At the time of birth, the prostate gland is no larger than a kernel of corn.
Men commonly begin to experience prostate growth in their middle ages. By the time a man has reached age 25, the prostate has grown to the size of a walnut. During the mid to late 40’s, the sex glands tend to enlarge as the cells in the middle section of the prostate begin to reproduce at an accelerated pace. This prostate enlargement is referred to as BPH (benign prostatic hyperplasia). When the prostate enlarges it may put stress on the urethra and block the flow of urine.
So what causes this prostate enlargement? And how can we fix it? Ancient Indian Ayurvedic texts indicate that prostate enlargement is caused by hormonal changes in testosterone and estrogen levels. Estrogen is often thought of as a female hormone though in reality it has an important function in the development of the prostate gland!
Scientific studies have shown that regulating estrogen may help keep the prostate gland from growing in older men! The hormone imbalance known as “estrogen dominance” has been identified as the primary cause of prostate enlargement and prostate cancer. The wonderful solution is that by rebalancing the hormone levels, the risk of prostate problems can be significantly reduced.
A male prostate problem arises with too much estrogen and too little progesterone. This is very similar to the problem a woman experiences when she gets breast cancer: too much estrogen and too little progesterone. Another important factor is to measure your PSA. Your PSA (prostate specific antigen) is produced in men and It protects against prostate cancer by inhibiting the growth of blood vessels that feed tumors. Both testosterone and progesterone are energy producing hormones. So when their levels fall below normal range, cellular energy wanes and less PSA is produced. When testosterone deficiency is restored, PSA levels normalize. When progesterone is increased, estrogen decreases.
Applying progesterone cream to the scrotum or other thin skin areas has significant benefits. Progesterone can help to reduce the size of the prostate by inhibiting the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase, an enzyme responsible for converting testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which is linked to prostate cancer. As progesterone levels decline, the conversion of testosterone to DHT increases. Progesterone is necessary to balance the life giving effects that estrogen has on prostate cells.
Applying progesterone cream has many health benefits to men and women! In addition to helping reducing prostate size, progesterone may enhance sexual drive, aid in the prevention of osteoporosis, and may decrease male balding. You can even have your partner apply it to your scrotum as part of your intimate time together.
When applying progesterone cream, it is good to skip a day of the week. So apply about 8-12 mg daily for six days of the week..It is essential to take proper care of your prostate health by having your hormones regularly tested. Avoid hormone-free foods and products. Get optimal nutrition, exercise, strength-training and practice different forms of stress relief.
Another important key to male prostate health is prostate massage. Prostate massage works in harmony with your body to stimulate your health and sexual powers. Regular massage of the prostate gland increases blood flow and circulation, shrinks the prostate, strengthens your ejaculatory control and significantly reduces any symptoms of enlarged prostate.
