The prostate gland is about the size of a walnut or golf ball, but its location guarantees problems if something goes wrong. Its located just below the bladder and in front of the rectum. It also wraps around the upper part of the urethra, the tube that carries urine from the bladder out of the body. The prostate gland has an important job: it produces a thick, milky-white fluid that becomes part of the semen, the liquid ejaculated during sexual activity. That means prostate problems can affect urination and sexual function.
The prostate is prone to three main conditions:
Prostatitis, infection or inflammation of the prostate. Prostatitis can cause burning or painful urination, the urgent need to urinate, trouble urinating, difficult or painful ejaculation, and pain in the area between the scrotum and rectum (known as the perineum) or in the lower back.
Benign prostatic hyperplasia, aging-related enlargement of the prostate gland. Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) can make the prostate compress the urethra and slow or even stop the flow of urine, in much the same way as bending a garden hose to stop the flow of water. BPH affects about three-quarters of men over the age of 60.
Prostate cancer, the growth of cancerous cells inside the prostate. These cells may break out of the gland and affect other parts of the body. In the United States, about 1 in 7 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime. Its occurs mainly in older men.
Tips for a healthy prostate:
Eat green leafy vegetables like lettuce, spinach, kale, and broccoli. These vegetables are full of important vitamins and antioxidants that keep you-and specifically, your prostate-healthy. Get some sun. Don’t hide from the sun but don’t ditch the sunscreen either. Too little exposure can increase the risk of getting prostate cancer. We get a lot of valuable vitamin D from the sun and also keeps us healthy in other ways. It’s good for heart health, and keeps your kidneys and pancreas healthy. Exercise, men who were more physically active were less likely to suffer from BPH, erectile dysfunction and prostatitis. Using a good quality supplement. CHF #32 has a specifically processed prostate, testicular and pituitary concentrate (bovine) in combination with vitamins, minerals, and herbs that may help nutritionally support a more normal functioning male reproductive system.

Essential oils for seasonal allergy relief
An allergy is when your immune system reacts to a foreign substance, called an allergen. It could be something you eat, inhale, inject into your body or touch. Over the last 50 years, the rise in prevalence of allergic diseases and disorders has continued in the industrialized world. Allergic rhinitis, the medical term for hay fever (the most common) develops when the body’s immune system becomes sensitized and overreacts to something in the environment. When left untreated it can cause blocked and runny nose, sneezing, watery eyes, headaches, inflammation, shortness of breath and an impaired sense of smell. Thankfully, some powerful essential oils serve as a natural and safe way to help treat symptoms of allergies and boost the immune system. The following essential oils for allergies have the ability to chemically support the body and help it overcome hypersensitivity.
Peppermint: studies show that peppermint oil acts as an expectorant and provides relief for allergies, as well as colds, coughs, sinusitis, asthma and bronchitis. Diffuse 5 drops of peppermint essential oil. To reduce inflammation, take 1-2 drops of pure peppermint essential oil internally once a day. It can be added to a glass of water, cup of tea or smoothie.
Basil: may reduce the inflammatory response of allergens, may support the adrenal glands and may help detoxify the body of bacteria and viruses. Take 1 drop of basil oil internally by adding it to soup, salad dressing or any other dish. To support the respiratory system, dilute 2-3 drops of basil oil with equal part coconut oil and apply topically to chest, back of neck and temples.
Eucalyptus: may help to open up the lungs and sinuses, may improve circulation and reducing symptoms of allergies. Diffuse 5 drops of eucalyptus at home or apply it topically to the chest and temples. To clear the nasal passages and relieve congestion, pour a cup of boiling water into a bowl and add 1-2 drops of eucalyptus essential oil. Then place a towel over your head and inhale deeply for 5-10 minutes.
Lemon: may support lymphatic system drainage and may help with overcoming respiratory conditions. Add lemon oil to your laundry detergent, mix a couple drops with water and spray it on your couches, sheets, curtains and carpets.
Tea Tree: this powerful oil may destroy airborne pathogens that cause allergies. It’s also an antiseptic agent and it has anti-inflammatory properties. Use tea tree oil on skin rashes and hives or as a household cleaner. When using tea tree topically, add 2-3 drops to a clean cotton ball and gentry apply to the area of concern.
*When using any of these oils topically, dilute with a carrier oil, especially if you have sensitive skin or on sensitive areas, like under the eyes or on the neck.
