Prostate Health:  10 Strategies To Lower Your Risk (or the risk of those you love!)

Prostate problems are one of the most common and bothersome medical problems of men as they age.  In fact, current trends are that most men will develop BOTH an enlarged prostate AND cancer of the prostate if they live long enough.  The older we become, the greater the risk.

Applying research-based strategies to protect the prostate as we age is possible and an ounce of prevention, in this case, is certainly worth a “pound” of cure!  Having the prostate partially or completely removed surgically to treat either an enlarged prostate or prostate cancer can result in problems such as complete impotence, weak erections, urinary leakage, and/or difficulty with ejaculations, any of which will affect quality of life.  Although many treatment options now exist and complications are less common, prevention is the far better option!

Diseases of calorie excess, including obesity, diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and many cancers are skyrocketing. As a result, many of us will not live as long as our parents. Simply put, our food is killing us! And once the above diseases strike, regaining health may be impossible.

Unfortunately, typical diets are not the answer. Fewer than 5% of self-dieters maintain even 1 pound of weight loss for 3 years. Research is “screaming” at us that powerful tools are urgently needed to lose weight and keep it off.

One of those “powerful tools” is professional quality meal replacements. In fact, I am so convinced of their effectiveness that I recommend them routinely. Let me state it clearly:

If you are overweight, use professional quality meal replacements to experience their 6 powerful benefits during weight loss and maintenance.

The National Institute of Health states that professional meal replacements used with physician-supervised diets are “not the same as the meal replacements you can find at grocery stores or pharmacies, which are meant to replace one or two meals a day.” Quality matters, especially when your health is at stake!
