An unhealthy prostate can eventually become enlarged which may result in prostate cancer. Since prostate health can become a serious problem for men in their middle age, it is important to take steps to maintain a strong and healthy prostate.
Balance Apana Vata. It is responsible for the downward flow of energy which occurs during urination.
Stop excess ama(toxins) from being produced in the body.
Strengthen the immune system.
Cleanse the dhatus (bodily tissues), especially rakta (blood), mamsa (muscle) and meda (fat).
Keep yourself hydrated. This ensures the urine doesn’t become too concentrated. Don’t urinate in a hurry and make sure your bladder is emptied completely.
Maintain a moderate body temperature because if it drops too much, it leads to urine retention.
Regulate your bowel movements. Constipation unbalances the apana vata leading to accumulation of ama in the blood tissue.
If you have to sit for long periods of time, take short breaks regularly to stretch. This normalizes the movement of energy to the prostate.
Perform daily abhyanga (Ayurvedic massage) to pacify the apana vata.
Avoid alcohol and caffeine as they create imbalances in the rakta dhatu (blood).
Include badaam (almonds) and akhrot (walnuts) in your diet. They are tri-doshic in nature and balance all three doshas.
Eat sweet and juicy fruits for a healthy rasa dhatu (nutrient fluid) that promotes the creation of ojas, strengthening the immune system.
