Fridays in the Park, Even With BPH

Fridays in the Park, Even With BPH

TGIF! Some people are going to the park this weekend. Among those people are men who have a condition called BPH (prostate enlargement). BPH is a common condition where the prostate gland grows larger in older age. It is associated with symptoms such as frequent urination, weak or slow urinary stream, struggle to start and stop urination, dribble, residual urine, and urges.

One of the recommendations for men with mild BPH is that they make positive, healthy lifestyle adjustments. This includes nutritiously balanced meals and physical activity such as walking, jogging and swimming. Going to the park for a walk or a jog not only helps cover the physical activity part, but being surrounded by the green, natural environment can have a calming effect in the mind as well. Men who experience BPH may have experience stress from the uncomfortable urinary symptoms, exhaustion from the disruption of sleep, and depression from the struggle to manage symptoms.

If you are able to practice safe guidelines (wearing a face mask, practicing good hygiene and social distancing) while going to the park, this can help reduce the risk of spreading COVID while getting that outdoor activity in.

Why is learning about BPH important? Because as men live longer, they are more likely to encounter BPH in their lifetime. If left untreated, the urinary system (bladder and kidneys) can be compromised, and your quality of life can lower tremendously. Spreading awareness and practicing good health can reduce the impact this condition has on the patient, as well as the on the people who love and support him. Men who don’t get regular health checkups due to reluctance or fear may be missing out on the chance to regain their quality of life and finding relief from BPH.

If you wish to consider natural treatment for mild BPH or as a complement to your current regimen, look up the clinical trial study on UMOOZE which contains extracts from astragalus and soy.

Wishing you a healthy and safe weekend!
