The Healthy Penis Plan…

If you want the average basic man to pay attention to his health, what better way to do that than to tell him his balls will fall off or even mention ways he can increase the size of his manhood.  I mean let’s be realistic here for a moment, I’ve had this blog for a few years now, and I’ve noticed the difference when I 1st say it’s a health blog and then give my card the response is “oh ok, i’ll check it out”and they will put in their pocket, but then when I proceed to say “there are excercises and ways to make your penis bigger, or ways to keep your penis healthy” they take my card out wit this glow on their faces, give it a double take and perk up” (pun intended) now wanting to engage in conversation.  Now that I have your attention…. Your lifestyle will be reflective of the risks associated with your health.

The top 5 causes of death for men are…

  • Heart Disease: All those wings, fried food, will not only clog your arteries in your heart, but your vessels in your penis and you won’t be able to perform
  • Cancer:  The thought of getting a prostate exam freaks out many males still, smoking is a leisurely activity that is still on the rise, now all the chemo and radiation treatment you’re receiving tires you out and you can’t perform sexually anymore
  • Injuries:  If the police don’t kill you, then car accident from a drunken night probably will.
  • Stroke:  The consumption of high sodium foods have given rise to a generation plagued by hypertension, left untreated will cause the blood vessels in your brain to burst, or that fat from the high cholesterol foods consumed will break off and lodge in your head also causing a stroke
  • AIDS/HIV: Promiscuity has increased due to social networking, the surge in IG, twitter models and strip clubs, and backpage have made it possible for the basic male to live out their fantasy with little care for free or for a fee.

There is a silent crisis in America facing our men particularly Black males.  The average American man lives sicker and die an average of 5 years younger than American women.  As you know June is Men’s Health Month, this month we encourage men to get out and see their doctor, and know what is going on with their body.

Awareness, prevention, education and family are key.  Being in the health field, I know for a fact that most men only come to the MD office when their at home remedies no longer work, or until they can no longer tolerate the symptoms they are having.  Dear Black men, stop tuffing out situations, aches and pains are a sign of something brewing.  It is not a sign of weakness to take care of your body, and being ignorant to what your body is saying will do more harm than good.  At the end of the day you are ultimately responsible for your health so be proactive and take interest in your #1 priority which is you!


The purpose of National Men’s Health Week  is to heighten awareness of preventable health problems and to promote early detection and treatment of disease among men and boys.  This is a chance for healthcaLike Father Like Sonre workers, media, and individuals to encourage them to seek regular medical advice and early treatment for disease and injury.  Teaching the younger ones is key to carrying the responsibility of following up with their own medical needs as they head into adulthood.  Fathers that are active in their younger ones lives should set an example especially if there are hereditary diseases that run in your family such as HTN (hypertension/high blood pressure), CAD (Coronary Artery Disease/High Cholesterol), Diabetes, Cancer to name a few.  Knowledge Is Power, so let’s become more informed about our health needs and requirements.  This week, I will be addressing a variety of issues that men in general may face as they mature.  If there is a topic that you’d like for me to address, or a question you may have contact me via email
