Is Stress
Killing Your Prostate?

is stress killing your prostate gland

Stress (emotional or physical overload) can have the most adverse influence on a person's body.

A normal amount, however, is actually a very healthy thing. A regular tolerable amount (like sensible exercise) is what actually strengthens the body.

But if it is chronic, it breaks the body down.

You've undoubtedly heard of people getting heart attacks, headaches, impotence and all kinds of other ailments from colds to cancer that were caused by this problem.

All that is really happening in these instances is that these people were giving their body more of a load than it could handle or recuperate from. So, the body breaks down and/or stops functioning normally. It is really that simple.

Constant Stress
Causes Biological Changes

If that is your male gland, emotional or physical overload will cause you all kinds of prostate problems that may seem unsolvable.

Biological changes happen when you are under emotional pressure. States of mis-emotion (emotion that debilitates): Anger, Jealousy, Hatred, Fear, Anxiety.... cause chemical changes in the body that were designed as survival mechanisms.

Basically these chemical changes were designed to put you in "fight or flight" mode. These chemicals gave you extra stimulation to increase your strength. You could then fight off or run away from the predator or disaster.

But these same chemicals are harmful when extended for prolonged periods of time. Like taking amphetamines. These chemical changes can cause the filtering mechanisms in your prostate to get overloaded. (The natural filtering process protects the sperm by keeping toxins out of the seminal fluids) This causes inflammation and swelling and pain.

This overload to your male gland can not only cause great pain and discomfort, it can make you impotent!

Too Much Mental Or Physical Strain
Can Ruin Your Health

We all know regular exercise strengthens the body. And, regular mental exercise strengthens the mind. It has been proven over and over again that seniors who stay mentally active live longer and are more alert.

"It is only when having too much mental or physical strain
becomes chronic or too intense
that it causes physical problems."

This includes erectile dysfunction. Prostatitis. And, a large amount of other sexual malfunctions.

You may be lucky here! A lot of men have dropped dead from stress. A LOT!

So, if you are noticing some sexual malfunctions at this time in your life, you really need to take inventory and check your reactions to your life circumstances.

Yes, I know, you need to get things done. And, you have responsibilities.

But, if you kill yourself (literally), how much good did you do?

Am I right?

Please:  Stop now, and take a minute to think about this. I mean it. How important are all those things your are killing yourself for?

Chill Out!

Yes, Chill out. Remember that expression? Or, is that just dating me as the old guy that I am.

It means: "Relax. Don't take EVERYTHING so seriously. It's not all worth dying for. In fact, most of it isn't.

"Chill out a bit.
Take the warning seriously.
Your current sexual dysfunction
may be the warning that will save your life."

Sometime we just try too hard. Relax. Un stress as much as you can. At every opportunity let things go. "Go with the flow" whenever possible. Things are so often not as important as they seems at the moment.

Letting go of stress will not only give you a much longer happier life, it will improve your sexual function!

Be Well.....
