If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with early-stage prostate cancer, there is a way to reduce the progression of this disease. E. L. Richman, et al, reported in CANCER RESEARCH on the discovery in an article called "Physical Activity After Diagnosis and Risk of Prostate Cancer Progresion: Data from the Cancer of the Prostate Strategic Urologic Research Endeavor". Researchers in the study came from the Harvard School of Public Health and the University of California, San Francisco.
The researchers found that men with early stage prostate cancer who walked briskley for three hours or more weekly were 57% less likely to need a second round of treatment than those who walked more slowly or walked for a shorter amount of time. Walking briskly was defined by the researchers as walking at least three miles per hour which was vigorous enough to elevate the heart rate.
This is another indication of the positive effect of physical activity upon disease. If you have been diagnosed with early-stage prostate cancer and want to get moving, a clinical hypnotherapist can design a session for you to get you motivated to start walking and reduce the progression of the disease.
