Prostate Health – why do I pee at night?

Over the last few years I have seen a curiously high number of male patients with prostate issues at ages of 40 plus. Yes 40!

Prostate health is so often thought of as a disease of old age men around 65 years or older. However, due  to some of the side of effects of our North American lifestyle this simply just isn’t true anymore.

Typical complaints range from urinary frequency particularly through the night, as well as the urgency to urinate sometimes with burning pain or even itching. In some cases patients have blood in the urine this is the hallmark of a prostate or bladder infection.

As we mentioned in our previous newsletter a normally functioning prostate will allow seminal fluid to pass and urine to flow unobstructed. However, as men age this gland has a tendency to enlarge this can impede the flow of all fluids through the gland. So the question is what could be going on here?

First, the lack of green or coloured phytonutrients or in other words lack of green veggies, and coloured fruits. These food groups contain key nutrients and antioxidative affects that have been shown to prevent prostate swelling or BHP (benign prostate hypertrophy).

Secondly, a lifestyle that includes a high amount of refined processed foods, and/or excessive alcohol can also contribute to BPH.

Thirdly, a sedentary lifestyle and lack of exercise also have been suggested to predispose men to prostate disease.

Fourth, nutritional deficiency of key minerals such as zinc and selenium found in nuts and seeds may also trigger prostate disease.

So simply put, if you want to sleep through the night, and keep your prostate healthy it’s not rocket science. Eat less junk food, eat more fruits and greens, cut the booze and get some regular exercise, and  your prostate will thank you - and we will all sleep well at night! Remember educate, evaluate, and empower yourself!

Gluten Free Snack Suggestion:

Espresso Hemp Protein Bites

By Parker    37 Comments

What’s better for a snack than homemade protein bites? Not much! Bites are a quick, healthy, and portable snack that is more affordable than buying protein bars. There aren’t too many protein bars out there that I can have due to my allergies, so when I need some quick protein options I always try to mix up some bites.

If you’re busy this summer like we have been, than making sure you get enough lean protein during the day can be a challenge, especially if you have food allergies or are on a special diet. If you have busy weekdays, it helps to plan ahead and make some protein-packed foods ahead when you have some free time. These Espresso Hemp Protein Bites not only are super quick to make, but they are also easy to take anywhere.

If you want to expand your protein horizons, then check out the new Bob’s Red Mill vegan protein varieties! Bob’s Red Mill sent over an amazing protein package with the 4 new flavors of their vegan protein powders, along with a fun shaker bottle and mini recipe booklet. Pretty awesome!

The 4 new varieties of Bob’s Red Mill vegan protein powders are all plant-based and…

  • Gluten-free
  • Good source of omega-3
  • Good source of iron
  • High in protein
  • High in fiber
  • Low in sugar
  • Boosted with probiotics

The 4 protein powders that were sent to me have a pea protein base and all natural flavors, so people with allergies can enjoy them. Since I have multiple food sensitivities and I’m eating mostly low-FODMAP, Bob’s Red Mill sent me a pack of Hemp Protein Powder that I could have, too. This protein is natural, packed with fiber, and great for recipes like my Espresso Hemp Protein Bites!

These Espresso Hemp Protein Bites have some of my favorite things: coffee and protein! They have a good blend of protein, complex carbohydrates, and healthy fats, so they make great post-workout fuel or a healthy anytime snack. I used white chia seeds in this recipe, but you can use either white of black chia seeds.

Since I don’t have caffeine anymore, I used decaf instant coffee in this recipe. But if you want a little caffeine boost in your bites, try using regular instant coffee. Find a good instant coffee that isn’t overly bitter for this recipe. We used one of our favorite organic instant coffee brands to get the best taste.

RECIPE:

Espresso Hemp Protein Bites

Makes 12 bites
Gluten-free, vegan, high fiber, high protein; Free of: peanuts, tree nuts, cane sugar, sesame

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup Bob’s Red Mill Hemp Protein + 1 Tablespoon
  • 1/4 cup gluten-free quick oats
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt*
  • 2 Tablespoons whole chia seeds (I used white chia seeds)
  • 2 teaspoons organic instant decaf coffee 
  • 3 Tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 Tablespoons SunButter
  • Vanilla Stevia drops, to taste (I used 1/4 teaspoon)

Instructions: 

  1. In a medium bowl, stir together the hemp protein, oats, salt, chia seeds, and instant coffee
  2. Stir in the SunButter, maple syrup, coffee (or rice milk), and stevia drops. Adjust the amount of stevia drops to suit your taste
  3. Mix all ingredients together to form a soft dough. If the dough feels dry after mixing, add 1 Tablespoon brewed coffee or rice milk
  4. Roll dough into balls about 1-inch in size
  5. Store in a sealed container in the fridge
  6. Enjoy!

*The salt in this recipe helps to balance out any bitterness from the coffee or hemp protein

About The Lost Wisdom Newsletter

As most of us have noticed over these last few decades modern science and technology have been advancing exponentially. Even in my short time here we have come from getting up off the sofa to turn a knob in order to change the channels on the TV. To lying on the sofa using a smart phone to operate and surf all 500 hundred channels! I believe in many ways people just take it for granted that new science is automatically the best science!

There is no doubt about the numerous benefits of newly discovered science and technology, however, we need to respect and understand the past and the science behind what we once thought of as just a simple life style and simple health practices! Practices our parents, grandparents and great grandparents used even though they didn't fully understand the science behind the benefits. They just knew these practices were beneficial, they just did not know the how and why. But now we know that our intuition was correct all along, and we have the science to prove it!

At that time experience and observation, empirical evidence, was the key factor in these older practices. Many of which were passed down from generation to generation with absolute conviction and trust. Remember these practices would have been stopped if their safety and effectiveness were in doubt. It was clearly defined over the years with no bias.

Unfortunately, as the generations passed these pearls of wisdom were forgotten, discredited and eventually lost. These pearls of wisdom are what refer to as lost wisdom!

Learn more about true preventative healthcare here each week, as I plan to get into other examples where it can be applied, as well as other relevant topics.
