BLACK Prostate Health

OUR BLACK PROSTATES

African American men are 60 percent more likely to get prostate cancer than whites. They're also twice as likely to die from it than any other group. All men have what are known as androgen receptor proteins - they are the
receptors for the hormones that regulate male traits like facial hair
and baldness. But researchers found that the levels of those
proteins are 22 percent higher in the prostates of African Americans
than in whites. And even more striking, they are 81 percent higher in
the prostate cancers of African Americans.

Start taking care of your prostate now :

Cut the caffeine. "Caffeine in any form--coffee, tea, chocolate or soft drinks--tends to tighten the bladder neck and make it
more difficult to pass urine,"  "Some of the prostate is made up of smooth muscle,
and anything that causes that muscle to constrict will make urination
more difficult. Caffeine does this."
revision: Green tea, for instance, is consumed in vast amounts throughout Asia and the men tend to not have nearly the prostrate issues of those living in America. In fact, there are studies that have shown that green tea actually slows down prostrate cancer!

Yoga-yoga promotes flexibility and circulation, stimulates the liver meridian, and in general makes a man more aware of his pelvic area in
terms of muscular control."  it's crucial to relieve
tension and support the muscles of the pelvic floor. Navasana (Boat
Pose) and Dhanurasana (Bow Pose) are both "enormously helpful" for this,
as is Virasana (Hero Pose), Sarvangasana (Shoulderstand), Supta
Konasana (Widespread Plow Pose), and simply lying on your back hugging
your knees to your chest.  Kegel exercises, which help strengthen the urinary sphincter, are
also a best-bet for men with prostate problems. She recommends
practicing them while in Virasana or Bhekasana (Frog Pose), postures
which themselves benefit the overall function of the urogenital tract.
Standing postures such as Virabhadrasana (Warrior Pose) I and II and
Trikonasana (Triangle Pose) help stimulate the liver meridian, another
key factor in prostate health.

Colon Cleansing- keep your colon clean with periodic laxatives or enemas to keep waste matter away from your prostate.

Celibacy  -Celibacy plays a pivotal role in prostate health as well. A man should not go his whole lifetime being celibate and by no means Djuti Maat Ra  of Dherbs advocates
this. Celibacy is seasonal a discipline! It allows the prostatic fluid
to rebuild and restore itself. It also allows the prostate gland to rest
and to strengthen itself.

Asante. Sharing with Baba now.

Ok Mama Imani, let us know if you have any questions. The biggest thing is clean livity and using the herbs proactively rather than starting when there is an issue. Much love to the family.
