By Peter Starr in Health Care Weekly Review, Michigan Edition, February 25, 2013, Volume 29, Issue 8

 

Editor’s note: This article is a continuation of the research by Peter Starr, Editor-at-large for Health Care Weekly Review™, on the subject of prostate cancer.

In the nine years that I have been studying natural healing modalities for the reversal of prostate cancer without conventional treatments, I have also learned about ways we men can change elements of our life to reduce the risk of inflammation, that in turn will help your prostate. I am not talking here of diet and supplements but the other part of our lifestyle, namely exercise, the way we move and the way we sit.

I have ridden a bicycle for most of my 70 years and along with so many bicyclists I have ridden with the hard leather saddle that has the prong that protrudes forwards under the genitals. This style of seat creates a pressure right at the perineum area, which is directly below the prostate. In fact if one rides for a long time – usually several hours, that area of the body can “fall asleep” and give a tingling sensation caused by the restriction of nerve energy and blood flow. Abuse of this area can extend upwards to the prostate and can become the root cause of inflammation, which in turn may increase the potential of other prostate disease.

I have known some dentists that sit for long hours working on patient’s teeth in seats that also create unwanted pressure on the perineum. Many suffer from similar symptoms as the bicyclists and experience unwanted outcomes and disease. Given this knowledge, it behooved me to seek a solution.

On a recent business trip to Italy to interview some Italian doctors about attitudes towards natural prostate cancer treatments I came across a dentists chair that had a gaping hole in the middle. I immediately recognized the advantage for men who spend a long time sitting – no pressure on the perineum area. I learned that the seat was inspired by an American design of horse saddles from the 1850s – the McClellan Trooper saddle. If anyone needed relief it would have been cavalry riders! I brought this Italian dentist’s seat back to my office.

Next I went shopping for a bicycle seat that would achieve similar results and I found it on the internet from a Canadian company. As a life-long motorcycle rider who enjoys long rides, I had to acquire a seat for my motorcycle, and thanks to Tom Seymour of Saddlemen I got that too. Now Saddlemen offer many models of motorcycle seat with this central relief. See the attached photos and understand that we live in a world of great stress and toxicity. Sometimes it is the simple and doable things that can make a difference.

Be conscious of how you treat your body and you might just avoid another reason to contract a chronic disease.

We're At Salem Harley-Davidson For The Big Weekend Rally, With A Northwest Flair

Running this weekend, from Thursday, July 14th through Sunday, July 17th, we'll be at Oregon's Salem Harley-Davidson for the big "Good Vibrations" motorcycle rally and charity event, going on in the Salem and Keizer area. The weekend offers a wide range of activities, from NHRA racing, live music, winery visits and a parade and poker run.

Gary Smith will be representing Saddlemen at Salem H-D, demonstrating our product line of motorcycle seats and luggage, and available for expert insight on choosing the right Saddlemen gear, along with helpful hints and installation advice. We're there with the well-known Drag Specialties truck, and their traveling aftermarket products display, featuring elite aftermarket manufacturers.

Salem Harley-Davidson is located just off Interstate 5. Their address 3601 Silverton Road N.E., in Salem. Their telephone number is (503) 363-0634.

Saddlemen is excited to be at the second "Good Vibrations" rally, and we hope to meet plenty of Northwestern riders. We travel the country throughout the year to the biggest events, so that we can stay in touch with the riding public, and let everyone see the great quality and value of our products. Keep an eye out for us the rest of the summer, and into the fall.

This weekend, starting on Thursday, July 7th and running through Sunday, July 10th, Saddlemen will be at J&L Harley-Davidson in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, in conjunction with the big "Hot Harley Nights" annual charity event.

Our travelling product expert, "Road Warrior" Gary Smith will be on hand to demonstrate Saddlemen items and offer top-notch advice before and after purchases. J&L Harley-Davidson is a BIG seller of Saddlemen gear, so there will be plenty of selection available.

J&L Harley-Davidson is located near the intersection of Interstate 90 and Interstate 29, just off exit 83 on I-29. Their address is 2601 W. 60th St., North, in Sioux Falls. Their telephone number is (605) 334-2721.

And it's a great chance to be a part of an effort that shows the spirit of the people we make Saddlemen gear for.

 

Our Riders Leave The Cars At Home

Recently, Saddlemen held a "Ride To Work Day," for our staff to commute on their motorcycles. Quite a range of machines showed up: baggers to sport bikes; Harleys and imports; brand-new, out-of-the-showroom models alongside vintage custom-project rebuilds.

Riders form the cornerstone of Saddlemen's people. From ownership and management, to R&D and engineering, customer service and sales, and out onto the factory floor, riders - who bring their experience and enthusiasm - are at the core of what we are about.

Our company's riding experience, and our love of motorsports, helps us to produce seats, luggage and other accessories with an eye for function, usefulness, ergonomics, as well as value. When you buy Saddlemen, you buy knowing riders are involved in every step of development of our product line.

 

A Great Time At "Heritage Harley Day"

Heritage HD Customers

This past Saturday, June 11th, our "road warrior" product expert, Gary Smith, was on hand at Heritage Harley-Davidson, with the traveling Drag Specialties display truck. Gary got to meet and show off Saddlemen gear to lots of area riders. At left is Bill Thorn, owner of a new BR1800 back seat and sissy bar bag, pictured with friend David Weller.

 

During his years on the front lines of customer service, Gary has assisted thousands of Saddlemen owners with installation and usage questions. His words of wisdom can help avoid problems and supply hints for getting the most out of our gear. For example, with our Back Seat & Sissy Bar Bags, like shown here, Gary has a couple of recommendations, "When installing any of our bags, always be sure to keep the mounting straps clear of the exhaust and wheels. Also, on the mounting straps for the sissy bar bags - they do not have to be pulled REALLY tight. It's best to leave a little slack in the strap."

 

Our thanks go out to our hosts at Lisle, Illinois' Heritage Harley-Davidson for putting on a great event.

 

Heritage Harley Davidson

Watch for Saddlemen appearances at rallies and bike shop events across the country, throughout the year. We believe the first hand product demonstrations and customer feedback we get from the riding public at events like "Heritage Harley Day" are an amazing resource, and an opportunity to "read the pulse" of the community we gear the Saddlemen line to serve.
