So you may be wondering, why another podcast, and what is the Dr. Geo Podcast going to be about?
Aren’t there millions of health-related podcasts out there?
How is this one going to be different?
Welcome to the first episode of the Dr. Geo Podcast, and I’m kicking off this show with one of the most crucial supplements that I think everyone should be taking, and that supplement is Vitamin D.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
To celebrate the tenth episode of the Dr. Geo Podcast, I decided to give the episode to you, the listener, in the first ever Dr. Geo Q+A!
I’ll be doing more of these in the future on the podcast and will answer your questions. The reason why I love doing these episodes is because I get to hear from men who are dealing with all things prostate and men’s health related and help them on the spot with their questions.
So let’s get into our first question.
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.
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.

So you think you know everything you need to know about weight loss, don’t you? You think you need to lose weight, burn more fat or have a higher metabolism.
Well let me tell you, you may be surprised that weight loss may actually have nothing to do with losing weight after all.
It has to do with much more than that and so this article tackles the topic of obesity and the impact of being overweight on your health.
