Men’s Health Issues and Problems

men's-healthIn the United States of America, the main causes of death amongst men are stroke, heart disease and cancer. Along with these, men also had to face regular sexual problems including the prostate and low libidos. Other issues for men’s health are lack of energy and digestive problems (more of a difficulty for those over 40).

At the base of these health issues are a mix of problems such as poor diet, toxins in the environment, drinking, smoking and other pollutants. By adopting a healthier lifestyle, men can improve their chances when it comes to these life-threatening diseases.

Heart Disease

High cholesterol is often liable for heart disease in men, but that isn’t the case. According to Dr. Ben Ansell, director of the UCLA Center for Primary Care-Based Cardiovascular Disease Prevention, There are various patients that develop coronary heart disease regardless of having regular cholesterol levels and no additional risk factors.

Other probable cause for heart disease which is receiving interest from many health experts is acute acidosis, where the acidic state of your body can harm your heart and arteries, creating holes in the artery walls. These holes are repaired by the body with cholesterol, which is why cholesterol is so often established in combination with heart disease damage. Perhaps it is not the reason.

When blood flow to the heart is reduced, you are at risk of heart failure, angina or full blown heart attack. You can confirm your own pH levels with simple test strips purchased at the drug store. Your urine is tested first thing in the morning, and you must have a pH level between 6.4 and 7.0. Lower than 6.4 indicate acidity.

Stroke

A stroke can be caused by related blockages as heart disease, but they occur when blood to the brain is reduced. If arteries to the brain become blocked, portions of brain tissue can die.

Cancer

Cancer is another disease that is associated to a high level of acidity in the body. Cancer cells are more likely to grow out of control in an oxygen reduced environment. That is just what is caused when your body is too acidic. With a balanced pH, you can improve your cellular oxygen levels by 10 to 20 times.

Low Libido

The symptoms for a low sexual drive may include mental stresses such as fear, anger, depression, and anxiety. There are  physical causes also like diabetes, anemia, alcohol abuse, arthritis and cardiovascular disorder. A healthy diet and moderate level of physical fitness can help keep your libido strong.

Prostate

There are 3 types of prostate diseases: prostatitis, BPH or benign prostatic hyperplasia, and prostate cancer. The first one is a bacterial infection, and BPH is an enlarged prostate. Prostate health can be improved with nutrients apigenin and lycopene. Tomatoes are an excellent source of lycopene, and you can also get apigenin in onions, cherries, apples, celery and broccoli.
