Male Aging - General Health Considerations


A high probability of prostate problems, including erectile dysfunction, prostate enlargement (BPH), and prostate cancer, are directly correlated with heart disease, hypertension, vascular problems, diabetes, prescription medications, and indexes of anger and depression.

Erectile dysfunction or impotence appears to be related to low blood levels of the sex steroid hormones testosterone and DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone), as well as high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol (good cholesterol), and an index of dominant personality.  

Impotence and other conditions of the prostate are strongly associated with advancing age and have multiple determinants including many that are risk factors for other conditions.

Erectile dysfunction (ED), benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH), and prostate cancer are all associated with the same risk factors and erectile dysfunction may be the leading symptom of other, more serious, disorders. Many of the risk factors for prostate disease are the same as those for other chronic conditions, such as diabetes, heart disease, vascular disease, and various cancers.

All of these risk factors can be modified and reduced by changes in lifestyle and nutrition, intelligent natural hormonal balancing, and proper vitamin, mineral, and herbal supplementation.

Prostate dysfunction is multifactorial. There are many nutritional and lifestyle issues that studies have linked to prostate disease, and, in particular, to prostate cancer.

In the past, psychological factors were thought to be at the root of most male sexual problems. However, it is recognized today that only a small percentage of such problems are related to psychological conditions other than stress.

In my book, Your Prostate, Your Libido, Your Life I discuss the steps you can take to improve your overall health and the health of your prostate in much more detail.
