The Whole Life Prostate Book

Everything That Every Man-at Every Age-Needs to Know About Maintaining Optimal Prostate Health

The Whole Life Prostate Book

MEN TODAY face a growing health crisis. More than twenty million nationwide are affected by a prostate health issue, and more than two hundred thousand are diagnosed with prostate cancer every year. Many of these problems are preventable because they are related to the chronic diseases of age associated with poor health choices. Dr. H. Ballentine Carter is a preeminent expert in the diagnosis and management of prostate disease, and he believes that it’s never too late—or too early—to make important changes to improve and maintain overall prostate health. Dr. Carter provides men of all ages the one resource that details what needs to be done when in crisis, but more important, he supplies crucial advice about how to prevent a prostate crisis from ever occurring.

Whether a man is in his twenties, thirties, or sixties, he is one day closer to being told he has a prostate problem. But positive lifestyle changes that incorporate diet, exercise, and health maintenance can significantly lower those odds. Dr. Carter shows you how in this comprehensive and authoritative guide, The Whole Life Prostate Book. With wisdom gleaned from his many years in the field, Dr. Carter cuts through the overwhelming amount of information—and misinformation—on the topic, arming men with the knowledge they need to make the best decisions about prevention, testing, and treatment. In clear language, he explains how to read test results and outlines the management options available for lower urinary tract symptoms; inflammation of the prostate; and management strategies for prostate cancer, including no immediate treatment—an approach pioneered by Dr. Carter himself that’s designed to preserve quality of life.

Filled with simple and nutritious recipes, easy-to-follow workout routines, and a straightforward approach to demystifying the complex medical jargon of prostate disease, The Whole Life Prostate Book is an empowering manual for maintaining optimal health throughout a man’s life.
