Key Supplements for Prostate Health

Video Transcript:

Today, I want to talk about one of the leading sources of men’s health angst, which is prostate imbalances, prostate inflammation, BPH, elevations in prostate testing, like PSAs, and even, potentially, biopsies that might have yielded a positive cancer diagnosis.

So overall, I want to share with you some ways to address prostate health, and specifically, I want to share with you, I actually have a guide that I have written for gentlemen, that is something you can grab, click on a link down below, which is my prostate fix guide. I also have a masterclass that’s available for all gentlemen to take to learn. It’s a deep-dive, a 60-minute deep-dive into understanding how to address prostate imbalances. So, let’s dig into some things that we need to address.

Prostate Anatomy

With any type of elevation in PSA marker, or a challenge with urine flow, or notice the frequency is there, or any type of irritation at the very end of urination, we’re dealing with an inflamed prostate gland. Now, what does that mean?

An inflamed prostate gland, essentially, is a combination of an accumulation of fluid, so we actually have kind of a swelling, if you will, in the gland and around the gland. In the middle of the gland is the urethra, the ureter. So, it’s like a donut, and in the middle is the process where we’re able to urinate. When that gland gets swollen, it swells on the outside, and it swells on the inside. So, that’s where we can get challenges with urine flow and imbalances throughout the day.

Is Excess Estrogen Causing Inflammation?

Now, the other thing that we’re dealing with in the prostate gland is that the prostate is highly receptive to excess estrogen. I talk more about this in my guide, and I’m digging further into it in my masterclass. But estrogen, for men, can be the leading source of inflammation. So, if we want to deal with estrogen accumulation in the male body, we need to do a few things. We need to lower overall inflammation in the body, and we do this through two ways. One, I love to supplement with Magi-Complexx for gentlemen. This is a very inflammation-reducing supplement. It’s a trio of herbals that are known to reduce inflammation in the body. They also help create the lymphatic process and the lymph flow that will clear a lot of inflammation in and around the prostate gland.

So turmeric, frankincense, and myrrh, these are very grounding. They’re very good for that lower pelvic region. This can help reduce some of the inflammation of that gland. So for gentlemen that may experience… what I see in a lot of my patients is a greater urination process at night. So generally, a gentleman will kind of get to bed, and then they go through two or three wake-ups where they have to urinate. But they’re not urinating fully, so they’re not emptying their bladder fully. Part of that is inflammatory. It’s also related to a particular stress hormone. That is something we’re going to address, too, but the Magi-Complexx is something you could take at night. And so you could take it around dinner time. That’ll start to lower the inflammation levels and start to minimize that nighttime waking.

Support the Liver

Now, the second thing that we need to do is we need to address the liver. The liver is a key detox organ, and the liver is also important for estrogen metabolism. So supporting the liver by drinking dandelion tea or adding milk thistle liquid herbal drops to that dandelion tea mix is a very powerful way at detoxing the liver and supporting the estrogen metabolism, meaning the breakup of estrogens that’s going to eliminate through the bowel contents and move out through the colon and rectum. That’s really important. And so targeting the liver is a really important part of this whole inflammatory reduction process when it comes to prostate health.

Is Stress a Factor?

The third thing that we want to do is address stress. Stress management. And let’s talk about stress. It’s not so much like, “Oh. I’m thinking I’m stressed,” or … For a lot of my gentlemen, they’re retired, so they’re like, “I don’t have the work stress, but I have this physiological stressor.” We have an assortment of stressors. We can have chemical stressors. We can have environmental, like allergy, allergens, internal to the body, like food allergens, or external. We could be dealing with micro-toxins, mold exposure. We could be dealing with an overwhelm of heavy metal exposure from work environment or maybe lifestyle, like smokers or folks that were consuming tobacco.

We can also deal with the stressor hormone, which is called cortisol. Cortisol is a very inflammatory-related hormone that can cause a whole bunch of stress inside the body, and it ultimately leads to some of the inflammatory challenges the prostate gland experiences. So, stress management techniques, like meditation and yoga, are some of the most powerful, free, stress-reducing tools that you can use on a daily basis. For gentlemen, sometimes, also reducing stress might be exercising in a different way, so doing more of a cardiovascular-based exercise in a 30-minute window.

So, instead of working out for an hour or doing hardcore weights, the most impactful exercise would be 30 minutes. Maybe it’s getting on a rowing machine and doing rowing or swimming. Those are very powerful, full-body exercises that support cardiovascular health but minimize the cortisol production. So a lot of men who are working out and kind of really doing a lot of weight lifting and high impact, the HIIT exercises or CrossFit, sometimes, they’re triggering cortisol in a way that is negative to the prostate gland.

Mineral Deficiency Is Easily Fixed

Now, another thing that I like to address is adding a very powerful mineral that is often going to be in a deficient state in our body. And particularly in the male body, this mineral deficiency can lead to inflammatory conditions, not just in the prostate, but joints. You might notice gout or swelling in the feet and ankles, and you might also notice kind of holding fluid here in the midsection.

Magnesium is a really critical mineral for lowering the inflammatory levels in our body, and we have Magnesium 7. I love to recommend adding this powder, so you can break open the capsules. You can add this into a smoothie. You can add it into your tea or morning coffee. It’s really great to add in twice a day – in the morning and in the evening. That can be a powerful way to support your prostate gland.

So, these are some tips. If you’re interested in going even deeper into healing the prostate gland, addressing inflammation and these inflammatory markers, like an elevation in PSA levels, where maybe you’ve been diagnosed with prostate cancer that’s being monitored or are dealing with, maybe, a catheter on a daily basis, I’m going to invite you into taking my Prostate Fix masterclass. We’ll walk away, after 60 minutes of this impactful class, you’ll walk away with some immediate resources, tactics, tips, and even a companion guide to impact your prostate gland in a positive way.

Joint & Muscle Care is a revolutionary supplement that takes three of the strongest inflammation support agents in nature (frankincense, myrrh, and turmeric), and combines them in the same perfect union treasured by the ancients. Available in capsule form or as an essential oil blend called Magi-Complexx.

Detox Your Liver Naturally! (+ 7 Tips for a Healthy Liver)

Want to maintain that positive mood, keep your energy levels high, and just feel GREAT every day? Achieve all of this and more with your next liver detox!

Why would detoxing the liver naturally have such a profound effect on your body, mind, energy level, and overall health? Read on to discover the reasons why.

What Does Your Liver Do for You Anyways?

There are so many functions that this oval-shaped, 3-pound bag of tissue performs in your body (some experts say over 400!) that it would take an entire book to describe them all.

In a nutshell, the liver plays a major role in both metabolism and natural detoxification. It breaks down nutrients from food into forms that can be used in the body naturally. It also stores these substances and supplies the cells with the specific nutrients that they may need at just the right time.

The liver is vital for the breakdown of carbohydrates, fats, and protein. In carb processing, it helps ensure that glucose levels stay balanced.

In the breakdown of proteins, liver cells help convert amino acids from food into substances that can be used as energy. And in fat metabolism, liver cells do basically the same thing – with the help of the gallbladder, it breaks down fat particles into energy.

The liver also has intricate relationships with several other organs. Blood that comes from the digestive system flows through certain areas of the liver bringing nutrients. The liver also works with the kidneys. Ammonia is a byproduct of the breakdown of proteins, carbs, and fats. Liver cells convert this potentially-toxic substance into urea, which is ammonia’s more benign form, which is then transported to the kidneys to be passed out of the body as urine.

And of course, the liver’s function is vitally connected to the gallbladder, which is a small organ located underneath the liver. The gallbladder’s main job is to produce the bile needed for the breakdown of fats.

Liver Health: Liver Function, Fatty Liver & Liver Cancer

Although we now know enough about the liver to understand that it is crucial for the health of the entire body, science is still learning about its connections to specific nutrients, mechanisms, and disease process.

For example, new research is now discovering the link between magnesium deficiency and liver cirrhosis (extensive scarring of the liver) as well as magnesium deficiency and fatty liver disease.

Fatty liver disease, or Hepatic Steatosis, is a condition that is of special concern in this day and age. At one time, fatty liver disease was mostly connected to alcoholism. Over the last decade, however, the number of individuals with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) has grown exponentially.

NAFLD occurs when the liver is not able to metabolize fats efficiently. According to a 2015 analysis conducted by Thomas Jefferson University,

“there is a worldwide epidemic of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD)…”

According to the American Liver Foundation, roughly 25% of the U.S. population is affected by NAFLD in some way.

Thomas Jefferson researchers call NAFLD a “clinical entity related to metabolic syndrome.” Conventional medicine often connects NAFLD to genetic predisposition as well as obesity and diabetes, although not everyone who is diagnosed with the condition needs to lose weight and/or is struggling with diabetes.

More forward-thinking researchers are now making the connection between NAFLD and environmental and pharmaceutical toxins. Chronic use of certain painkillers as well as the use of certain chemo drugs may be contributing factors for NAFLD.

In addition, a 2017 investigation published in the journal Nature: Scientific Reports made the definitive link between NAFLD and the consumption of GMO foods, especially those that have been sprayed with even the smallest amounts of the pesticide Roundup.

If the connection between chemically produced toxins and NAFLD is correct, then it is no surprise that these chemicals continue to pervade every aspect of our lives. The incidence of not only NAFLD but also cirrhosis, liver damage/failure, and even cancer of the liver will continue to rise as well.
According to the American Cancer Society, the number of liver cancer deaths has increased by three percent every year since 2000. In recent years, over 41,000 Americans have been diagnosed annually with cancer of the liver.

Detox Your Liver, Detox Your Body

In this age of increased toxic load on all levels, including heavy metals, it is imperative that the liver be cleansed on a regular basis. According to both Chinese and Ayurvedic traditions, transitional points of the year (such as the weeks right before the winter and summer solstices) are great times for liver detoxification. 

Each of the cleanse modalities listed below can be utilized from one to three weeks. If you are fairly healthy, you should be able to support your liver in these ways while at the same time maintaining a regular schedule.

Although, it may be a good idea to focus on healing as much as possible by keeping extra activities to a minimum during the first few days as your body flushes out extra toxins buried deep within the organs.

Note: If one of your health goals is losing weight and you’ve been unsuccessful, it could be because your body is storing lots of toxins in fat cells. By supporting your main organ of detoxification, you can often give your weight loss efforts a helping hand.

One additional important note. If you have been diagnosed with NAFLD or any other health condition, it would be wise to consult with your health practitioner prior to embarking on any detox diets or other kinds of concentrated cleanses.
Holy basil In human hands

#1: Use Gentle Herbals.

Certain herbs can have a profoundly strengthening effect on the liver. Three such herbs that have been used for centuries are milk thistle, dandelion root, and Holy Basil.

Organic dandelion root and Holy Basil can often be found at health food stores in the form of dietary supplements (or in your own backyard). Milk thistle is often sold in supplement form and can be a great boost for the immune system, as well.

#2: Coffee Enema.

Enemas have been used for centuries by Ayurvedic practitioners and some of today’s top natural health experts say that regular coffee enemas are a “must” for a toxic world.

Administering an enema with organic, pesticide-free coffee can be an instant energy-lifter, and here’s why: blood runs through the liver every three minutes.

Retaining coffee in the bowels for just 15 minutes allows it to seep through the intestinal wall and into the “portal vein” of the liver, where it will stimulate the gallbladder.

Coffee also provides the body with the phytochemicals kahweol and cafestol, which can lower inflammation, activate glutathione production, and encourage cellular detoxification. Coffee enemas have also been shown to stimulate apoptosis, or cancer cell death, in some studies.

#3: Try a liver-cleansing “shot.”

It’s not an injection nor does it have anything to do with tequila (except that you might want to do this the morning after you’ve had “one too many”). A liver-cleansing shot is simple to put together and fairly easy to “down.”

Just combine, in a high-speed blender, one whole organic lemon, cut into pieces (rind and all), 1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil, and a pinch of cayenne in 6 ounces of pure water.

Blend at high speed until thoroughly mixed. Then strain and drink. You can also sip this infusion throughout the day for a gentler cleanse; just make sure to wait at least an hour before eating.

As a side note, citrus fruits in general are excellent for liver health. Just be sure if you’re consuming any rind that it’s from washed, organic fruit.

#4: Don’t forget the gallbladder.

The liver-cleansing “shot” mentioned above is great for the gallbladder, too, which is a good thing. In order to really cleanse the liver, you also must take the health of the gallbladder into consideration.

To help your gallbladder prevent painful gallstones, stay away from trans fats and processed foods, and make sure to drink plenty of water. For tasty alternatives to plain water, try our detox water recipes.

7 Ways to Keep Your Liver Happy

Now that you know what to do for a deep liver detox, you can help keep this vital detoxification pathway running smoothly all year long by adding these simple tips and tricks to your everyday routine:

  1. Get sufficient amounts of vitamins K, D, A, B12, B6, and C, as well as magnesium.
  2. Drink half your weight in ounces of pure, fresh, filtered water daily (e.g. a 150-lb person would drink 75 oz of water). If you have trouble reaching this number you can also count herbal tea, green tea, and the liquids found in foods such as soup towards your total.
  3. Go easy on your digestive system by limiting grains and red meat and eat lots of fresh leafy greens and cruciferous vegetables which support liver health.
  4. Move your body in a way you enjoy; four times per week for a minimum of 30 minutes is ideal.
  5. Practice stress management techniques such as yoga, meditation, journaling, strolling in nature, skin brushing, soothing baths, and self-massage. Put one of these activities on your to-do list every day!
  6. Take care of yourself emotionally through journaling, talking to a friend or counselor, or practicing the Emotional Freedom Technique. Holding on to negative emotions, especially trauma, can add to your toxic load.
  7. Consider going on a deeper cleanse whenever you consistently feel fatigued, tired, bloated, constipated, confused, achy, depressed, anxious, or generally “out of sorts”; these are all signs of toxic overload.

Treat your liver with love, live a healthy lifestyle that supports and strengthens it, and give it some time to deeply clean out the large amounts of toxins we’re exposed to in our modern world every once in a while. Then your liver can do what it is meant to do – help YOU stay vibrant, healthy, and strong!
