Men Are DYING Faster (Here’s Why)

Ask the men in your life when they went to the doctor last and most will have a hard time remembering. 

I ask men this question all the time and I’m often answered with a blank stare.

You see, most men avoid going to the doctor as much as possible…but they shouldn’t.

Because men die faster.

And in my years of practice, I’ve seen that some of their early deaths are attributed to the same four diseases.

So today, I’m going to tell you exactly what theses illness are… how to identify them early… and even how to REVERSE them.  

Some conditions are more common in men than women. 

But they aren’t just the obvious ones like prostate cancer and sexual issue. 

Any doctor worth his salt knows that there are four other specific illnesses that can put men on the fast track to an early graves. 

Unfortunately, most doctors aren’t even worth their co-pay these days  

That’s why I’m giving you my short list of conditions any man should be on the lookout for. This way you can protect yourself and your loved ones. 

Here’s what to look for: 

Kidney Stones: Kidney stones are tiny rocks that collect in your kidneys. They can cause serious pain, usually on one side of your body. Having untreated kidney stones can lead to life-threatening infections. Fortunately, you can prevent kidney stones by drinking lots of water, avoiding too much coffee, and making sure you get enough Vitamin C, which helps break them up. 

Melanoma: Like it or not, senior men are twice as likely to get the skin cancer melanoma. In fact, by age 80, men are three times as likely to get it. And that’s not shocking when you consider men tend to work more outside, are less likely to use sunscreen and the don’t get regular checkups. So, check your skin regularly for any abnormal moles or growth and be sure to use sunscreen. If you catch melanoma early, it can easily be removed. But if you wait, it can spread all over your body. 

Kidney and Liver Cancer: Kidney and liver cancer is often mistaken as back pain. Liver cancer is three times more common in men because they are exposed to more cancer-causing chemicals (usually in the work place). Early signs of kidney cancer include blood in your urine, lower back pain, a lump on the lower back, fatigue, weight loss and a fever that doesn't go away. You can prevent kidney and liver cancer by avoiding processed foods, which are riddled with sugar and other toxins.

Gout: A gout attack happens when the body is overloaded with uric acid. Gout causes extreme joint pain like arthritis. Food like red meat, shellfish, sugary beverages, and excess alcohol can raise uric acid levels. While a gout alone can’t kill you, it can up your risk of heart disease and deadly infections. You can stop gout by making sure you stay away from sugars (especially fructose). 

If you experience any of these symptoms, report them to your doc immediately and don’t be afraid to ask for them to test for these conditions more often. 

Health and Happiness,
