I am passionate about wellness advocacy and educating the community about healthy lifestyle and preventive measures. I have created a weekly blog and many educational booklets, brochures and videos. I have authored 3 books, FINDING YOUR OWN FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH: The Essential Guide to Maximizing Health, Wellness, Fitness and Longevity, PROMISCUOUS EATING— Understanding and Ending Our Self-Destructive Relationship with Food, and MALE PELVIC FITNESS: Optimizing Sexual and Urinary Health. In the works is THE KEGEL FIX: Recharging Female Pelvic, Sexual and Urinary Health.
Nocturia might not always be an outcome of an urological problem and affects both sexes. Excess fluid consumption closer to bedtime, diabetes medications, water retention due to edema, age-related decline in kidney function, obstructive sleep apnea, and an overactive bladder are common causes. Control fluid and salt intake, take bladder relaxants, and treat underlying medical issues.
Prostate growth is influenced by aging, genetics and testosterone. Severity depends upon where in the prostate the enlargement is and how tightly it squeezes the urethra. Stay physically active for better blood circulation, avoiding obesity, and improving prostate muscle tone. Consume veggies high in lutein (kale, spinach, broccoli, peas) and beta-carotene (carrots, sweet potatoes, spinach).
Blood flow to the reproductive organs is imperative for optimum sexual health. Arterial fatty acid deposits retard this flow of blood. The Mediterranean diet contains leafy, fibrous, protein-rich, and anti-oxidative foods that are low in saturated fats and high in healthy unsaturated fats, omega 3 and anti oxidants that keep the vascular system and also your sex life healthy.
