What You Need to Know About Diet and Prostate Cancer

This week on the Dr. Geo Podcast, I’m diving deep into diet and prostate cancer. 

Prostate cancer affects everyone, not just men. It affects your partner, your friends, and your family. It’s the second leading cause of death of men in the United States, and the older men get, the higher chance they have of receiving a cancer diagnosis.

How a Gleason 6 Score Can Change Your Life for The Better

Men are about performance. Men have a desire and drive to perform.

But when the word cancer is spoken to them by their doctor and they get told they have a Gleason 6 score, a man’s entire world changes. For the first time, a man is facing mortality and thinking they could die sooner rather than later.

How Exercise Affects Prostate Cancer

You probably already know the impact and importance of physical movement and health in the body but do you know the impact of exercise in the prevention of prostate cancer?

More than likely you don’t because very rarely do men workout specifically to defend against prostate cancer. Men are more focused on building strength and aesthetics and of course, overall health.

What You Need to Know About Advanced Prostate Cancer

Now I’m not a big movie watcher but I do remember William Hurt in the movie Kiss of the Spider Woman. I was a very young kid and it was one of my favorite movies to watch. I also remember William Hunt in the series Kojak with Telly Savalas, who may or may not have inspired me to shave my head.

Here’s What You Need to Know About PSA Tests

In my experience as a medical practitioner, I do not know of a biomarker that creates more stress in patients than the PSA test and it causes a great amount of anxiety and stress in men. Anytime a man gets the PSA test and sees a high number on there, they more than likely are connecting that number to death. It hits your subconscious mind on so many levels and I have seen patients start going down the rabbit hole with worry and anxiety around their test results.

What You Should Know about Prostatitis

I remember the first time I saw a case of prostatitis in my office 16 years ago in a young patient. The symptoms were debilitating. There was chronic pain around his testicles and his perineal area, lower back pain, and excess urination. This guy was living in New York City, really looking forward to having the time of his life and here he was in my office in a debilitating condition.

What is Erectile Dysfunction and How to Treat It

Until the 1990s, impotence was the term used to describe what most if not all men fear; erectile dysfunction. It was around this time that impotence was faded out and erectile dysfunction, more commonly known as ED was phased in as a diagnosis to prescribe pharmaceuticals for this condition. 

As some of you know, my work is all focused on helping men live longer and more optimally and ED is something that I believe can be easily fixed using a series of natural treatments. In fact, I think you’ll be really surprised as to what I think is the primary cause of erectile distress. 

Let’s get into it.

How You Can Age Successfully

This week, I’m diving into the topic of aging successfully and what it means to age successfully in today’s fast-paced world. I’m reminded of a patient that came and saw me one time named Bob. Bob was 72 at the time, and he said to me that he had come to see me because he wanted to die fast. I looked at him, shocked and asked him if he had prostate cancer. He said to me the following words, and I’m paraphrasing here.

“You don’t understand. Healthy people die fast. Unhealthy people die slowly, and it’s a horrible type of death with cancer and chemo. It’s a prolonged, hard, painful death. I don’t want that. I want to die fast and healthy people die fast.”

It was an incredible perspective, and Bob is doing incredibly well in his early eighties. I attribute Bob’s success in aging to focusing on his health and reducing his risk of cancer, heart disease, and keeping his body optimal well into his years. 

So let’s get into it.

Honoring The Incredible Women That Support Men With Prostate Cancer

Who’s the most essential component in a man with prostate cancer? 

Is it his doctor? 

I would argue ithat the most important component in a man’s life when he is diagnosed with prostate cancer is his wife, his spouse. Most of the patients I have seen have powerful women by their side who happen to be moms. They stand firm and support their husband or partner during the time of a prostate cancer diagnosis which is incredibly stressful to receive. 

In observance of Mother’s Day, I’m honoring the incredible women and moms that support men with prostate cancer with this article.

Let’s get into it.

Let’s Talk about Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH)

The prostate is so important for men’s health that it sometimes can be a pain in the rear. 

And I say that because BPH stands for benign prostatic hyperplasia which is the medical term for an enlarged prostate. It’s a very common occurrence in men as they age and this week on the Dr. Geo Podcast, I did an episode on BPH, what you can do to improve your BPH condition and some natural methods that will help.

These Lifestyle Changes Reduce Developing Prostate Cancer by 45%

This week’s episode of the podcast dives into a recent study involving prostate cancer and lifestyle. 

Yes, lifestyle gents. I have discussed this topic in length in previous episodes of the podcast involving health and nutrition and how vital of a role it plays in your urological health. 

You see, lifestyle medicine is real. It is not window dressing. And a recent study showed that a healthy lifestyle can reduce prostate cancer by 45 percent. 45 percent is not a small number. That is a significant reduction in prostate cancer. And it all can be done through lifestyle changes such as exercise, meditation, and eating nutrient-dense foods.

The Truth about Cannabinoids with Dr. Joseph Feuerstein

I have to admit that my experience with cannabinoids is minimal. 

Well, to be candid, it’s zero. And that’s a good thing because I got to have my dear friend and renowned medical professional Dr. Joseph Feuerenstein share on the Dr. Geo Podcast the truth about cannabinoids. 

And here’s the deal. Cannabinoids do not come from cannabis or marijuana only. It turns out that you have a lot of cannabinoids in food which turns out provides a ton of medicinal qualities. Yes, of course, we were able to relate this topic to the prostate and urological health, and I highly encourage you to check out this entire conversation on my Youtube channel.

Why An Increase in PSA Doubling Time is a Good Sign

You know, men are super anxious about PSA Tests. The higher the number, the more of a problem is usually what men think. 

They think that they are going to die today. And that’s not true.

Everything You Need to Know About Prostate Biopsies 

I think most men are trying to avoid a prostate biopsy. Even if their PSA levels are high, men do not want to get it even though the biopsy is still considered the gold standard in detecting if you have prostate cancer. 

No matter how much you may be fighting it, biopsies are really helpful to your prostate health, and to take a deeper dive into biopsies, I brought on my good friend and colleague Dr. James Wysock to the Dr. Geo Podcast to do an episode on prostate biopsies and much more.  

Dr. Wysock is a Urologic Oncologist at NYU Langone and a thought leader in prostate health. His research and papers have been some of the best I have ever read in this field. And the episode is full of nuggets about prostate health and urological health that will help you make the best decision regarding biopsies. 

There is a lot of information in this episode and I highly recommend you watch the episode on my Youtube channel and listen to the episode on Apple, Spotify and wherever else you get your podcast.

What is Life Like Without a Prostate?

This week’s conversation is all about life without a prostate. I’ve seen a ton of patients who do not have their prostate and there seems to be the notion that life is over for men once their prostate is removed. 

And that is not true. Yes, removing your prostate is difficult. There is no way around it and for men, struggling to identify their life after removing their prostate can be challenging. 

Let’s get into life without a prostate.
