The prostate is the life gland of men, and many difficult diseases are related to the prostate. It is an important thing for men to maintain their prostate in winter. How should we prevent and treat the recurrence and aggravation of prostatitis in winter?
Don't hold your urine in cold weather
I think we all have this experience. After the weather turns cold, many people do not think of urinating at night and always hold back. Unexpectedly, holding urine will make the bladder overfilled and compress the prostate. In addition, suffocation may also lead to dysuria and urinary retention. Therefore, in order to prevent prostatitis and other diseases, nocturnal urine must be discharged. Don't bear it.
Taboo spicy tobacco and alcohol
In winter, people like to eat hot pot, especially spicy hot pot. However, alcohol, pepper and other foods as well as smoking can stimulate the prostate and urethra, and also cause congestion and edema of the prostate and bladder neck, leading to the occurrence of prostate disease. Therefore, smoking and drinking should be avoided as much as possible. Spicy hot pot and other stimulating foods should be avoided if they can be avoided.
Add clothes flexibly and keep warm
For men's prostate, cold is a big threat. Cold increases the excitability of sympathetic nerve, which leads to contraction of prostate gland, expansion of gland tube and blood vessel, and hyperemia. Therefore, after the weather becomes cool, clothes should be added in time according to the weather changes, and local warming should be paid attention to to protect the prostate.
Timely supplement zinc and selenium
This must be known. Zinc and selenium supplement in men's diet can regulate the prostate. The content of zinc in the male prostate is higher than that in any organ of the body. When the content of zinc decreases, the antibacterial ability of the prostate decreases, and the defense ability against inflammation also decreases, which leads to the prostate being susceptible to infection and disease. Now, zinc is widely used in clinic to improve prostatitis. On the one hand, it can improve the immune defense ability of the human body, and on the other hand, zinc can enter the prostate gland through the blood-prostate barrier to play a role, It can increase the total zinc ion concentration in blood and prostate fluid, improve the activity of local antibacterial factors in the prostate, and strengthen its local antibacterial defense ability. These are all conducive to the recovery of chronic prostatitis.
Ensure 2L of water per day
After the weather gets cold, people will drink less water, resulting in concentrated urine and less urination. This will have adverse effects on the prostate, kidney, bladder and other organs. Therefore, even in winter, we should drink about 2L of boiled water every day to ensure the urine volume, so as to achieve the purpose of flushing the urethra, promoting the discharge of prostate secretion, and preventing prostate infection. However, in order to avoid frequent waking up after sleep and affecting rest, try to drink more water during the day and reduce the amount of water before going to bed.
