Gentlemen, something this big in your pants is not a good sign
The Good Life Letter
22nd May 2016
- It is time men were shocked into action about this common problem
- Making a change to this gland is naturally easy
- Now is the time to tackle this problem, before it is too late
You may have been a little shocked by the headline, but the fact of the matter is it takes something radical to get the men of this world to take their health seriously.
For the ladies today’s letter concerns a male problem but it is one that you should also be aware of, and you have my permission to ensure that your men don’t ignore it.
I’m talking about prostate cancer and how to avoid the risks of developing it, and more specifically the test to establish whether any developing symptoms indicate an aggressive form (a tiger) or a passive form (a pussy cat).

Prostate cancer is rapidly becoming the most common cancer among men (women do not have a prostate gland). Already prostate cancer is the second biggest cause of cancer death in the UK.
Each year, doctors diagnose prostate cancer in around 20,000 UK men. Ten thousand die from the disease.
That's roughly one man an hour!
But because it's a disease that affects elderly people, (72 years of age is the average for death from prostate cancer) the media don't give it enough due attention.
This is a dangerous situation. The Institute of Cancer Research suggests that one in four men will suffer from prostate cancer by 2020.
As the population ages, so prostate cancer will increase.
Otherwise fit and healthy men in their 70s could be brought to their knees unnecessarily, and this cancer will become a nationwide medical crisis.
So what can you do? The first thing is to act before you develop cancer – and that means being much more aware about how to spot risks, and significantly reduce them.
If your prostate is beginning to change there are a range of obvious symptoms (which are listed in full within the report) but basically are to do with urination:
- making it difficult for you to start urinating and causing a weakened flow of urine, or cause "stopping and starting"
- cause you to strain to pass urine and to make it feel like you haven’t fully emptied your bladder
- cause you to frequently need to urinate especially if you wake regularly in the night needing to go to the toilet
- cause a sudden urge to urinate, which can result in incontinence if you cannot find a toilet quickly enough
None of these are joyous I know but you should never ignore these symptoms, and make sure you discuss them with your GP as soon as possible.
This is the point you have to submit yourself to be tested.
Delaying getting assessed might be the worst decision you ever make, not facing up to the fact that your prostate might be causing these problems could put your life at risk.
The problem has been that tests were either misleading or involved something called a rectal digital examination...
...not anyone’s idea of fun. Now though there is a much better test available.

New hope for more accurate tests for prostate problems
Half of men who are told they have only ‘slow-growing’ prostate cancer turn out to have more aggressive tumours after undergoing current biopsy testing.
Scientists have warned that inaccurate testing often underestimates the likely progress of the disease, and that it is only when the prostate is surgically removed that doctors can tell for sure whether the cancer was life threatening or not.
Regular testing of prostate serum antibody (PSA) in the blood also seems to be inaccurate and either leads to over stating the development of the disease or, worse, understating it and leaving the sufferer at risk.
So, health experts are encouraged by new methods to test tissue samples which allow them to genetically test the cells harvested to accurately predict how they are likely to develop.
Currently these tests are being used to identify if previous sufferers are at risk of further problems but the science teams reckon that this information can be put into wider usage, for everyone’s benefit.
Of course all this super space age technology is good news for the future but what should all men be doing right now to keep their prostates in better shape?
Taming the tiger...naturally
Enlargement of the prostate is something most men of a certain age suffer from to some degree. But it's not something that's easily talked about.
In fact anything that falls into the 'down there' category is quite often swept under the carpet. Men still tend to suffer in silence.
But it's something that NEEDS to be talked about – and dealt with – because the need to urinate more frequently is one of the signs of BPH (benign prostatic hyperplasia) – or an enlarged prostate.
Like I said, nearly all men of a certain age will suffer from this because after years of sitting still the prostate suddenly bursts into life when men hit 40 and starts growing again.
But there are steps that you can take to help change the way the gland changes, and by following a simple daily supplement regime you can even avoid the problems occurring at all.
Like most natural approaches a good healthy diet based upon fresh seasonal foods is a good start, especially if it is rich in vitamins C & E, loaded with simple oils that balance out omega 3, 6 & 9 plus a supply of good plant anti-oxidants.
Our French cousins are ahead of the game on this one, with their traditional recipes combining herbs, onions, garlic and fresh vegetables into delicious fare...
But they also know a thing or two about natural supplements – Don’t you owe it to yourself and those around you to follow Gallic know how? Protect your prostate naturally
Yours, as always
