Here at Motivate, we make it our mission to increase men’s health awareness for total body healing. This month our topic of conversation is…. Prostate health awareness!


Your prostate is a small gland surrounding your urethra which produces vital fluids needed for reproduction and urination.


However you identify, if you have a prostate, it is important to get routine checkups from your doctor to assess your prostate health.


Along with aging, changing hormone levels, general de-conditioning, and lifestyle choices, it is important to be aware of common health issues involving the prostate, such as: prostatitis, benign prostatic hyperplasia, and prostate cancer.


Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH): The prostate increases in size and becomes enlarged, putting excessive pressure on the urethra leading to:

  • Frequent and urgent urination, especially at night
  • Difficulty initiating urination
  • Weak or intermittent urine stream
  • Small leakage post urination
  • Incomplete bladder emptying


Fact: 50% of men between age 51 & 60 will be affected by BPH (National Institute of Health)
