Over the years, me and my friend Gary have shared a lot of things...

Years of slavish devotion to a band called 999...

A love of cider...

Dancing to Bing Crosby (don't ask)...

The list goes on and on.

But ever since we hit our forties, there's something else that bonds us, something I call the curse of the creaking floorboard.

How a creaking floorboard signals this health problem

I was only reminded of the curse after Gary stayed with us last night. He lives in Newcastle now, but came down for an old colleague's retirement do at the BBC.

Anyway, throughout the night, the curse struck us, probably four of five times.

The first one I heard was at just after two in the morning. I heard it again at four. And when I spoke to Gary the next day, he said he'd heard it once or twice himself.

"It's annoying isn't it," he mused, nursing a cup of a tea and a hangover, "why do you suddenly have to start going to the loo during the night, EVERY night? Isn't it bad enough that I'm losing my hair?"


'Lost' is a better way to describe it. If his hair was a pet, there'd be posters of it all over town offering a reward for its safe return.

But still, it IS unfair that us men have to put up with all this suffering while women waltz through life without any problems. (Before my inbox is flooded with death threats, I'm only joking. Honest!)

But more frequent visits to the loo is pretty irritating, especially those night visits, where you have to get up and tiptoe over the floorboards so you don't wake the whole house up.

Luckily, there are plenty of things you can do to fight the problem...

The best natural remedies for your prostate

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.

More worryingly, it can also be a sign of prostate cancer. So it's something you need to get checked.

Luckily, there are plenty of natural remedies that can keep the embarrassing and irritating symptoms of an enlarged prostate in check...

The Indian herb that prevents those nightly trips to the toilet
Himplasia is a mixture of traditional Ayurvedic herbs.
In a study in Varanasi in India, a group of men between the ages of 50-80, all suffering from Benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH), were each given two tablets twice a day for three months.
The results seem incredible.
Prostate weight was down an average 70%... the size went down 21%... and trips to the toilet were reduced by 45%!

Remember, always chat to your doctor before you try anything I talk about, but Himplasia seems like it could be a way forward.

Put the kettle on to protect yourself from cancer

The Honeybush plant grows from the Southern to the Eastern Cape of South Africa. Locals have used it for hundreds of years to treat a wide range of ailments, from constipation to rashes.
But recent research suggests it may be helpful in the prevention of breast, uterine and prostate cancer.
Studies at the University of The Free State in South Africa found that Honeybush is indeed a good relaxant, helps with constipation and can be applied to the skin for rashes. But it also contains phytoestrogens, which may be helpful in the prevention of breast, prostate and uterine cancer.
Pretty good going from a simple brew.
But is this one even better...?
Rooibos tea grows in the Cedarburg mountain area near Capetown, and clinical studies (undertaken in Japan and at the University of the Orange Free State in South Africa) have revealed this tea has a remarkable amount of health benefits packed into one small leaf.

Amazingly, this tea contains over FORTY polyphenol compounds and flavonoids that act as anti-oxidants.

So what does that mean?

Well, to put it plainly, this tea is anti-allergic, anti- mutagenic, anti-spasmodic, anti-bacterial, anti- aging and anti-viral.

All right, so it wasn't putting it that plainly.

But the evidence is there to support a claim that this is indeed a super-tea. Furthermore, Rooibos tea contains alph-hydroxl acid, a substance known to promote healthy skin conditions. Plus it's full of iron, potassium, calcium, copper, zinc, magnesium, manganese and sodium. So put the kettle on, and have a nice cup Rooibos.

Is this the best all round natural prostate protector?

It's always difficult to say something is 'the best' when there are hundreds and hundreds of natural remedies out there...

But this one does seem to have it all.

Prostease Plus is an amazing compound that is packed with nature's 'healthy prostate' superstars. It contains the latest clinically trialed ingredients such as HMRlignan from Norway, Cernitin (Swedish flower pollen extract), He Shou Wu Root

Standardised Extract, Lycopene , Zinc, the Saw

Palmetto berry... the list goes on and on.

Basically, if something can help protect your prostate and ease the symptoms NATURALLY, you'll find it in this remedy.

What's more, you can try this to see if it works for you without committing a penny. So if you, or someone in your family, suffers from symptoms of prostate problems, give this a go.

And those night visits to the loo could be a thing of the past.

Prostease Plus

That's all for today.

I'll be back next week with more tips and ideas to help you enjoy a healthier life.
