Enlarged Prostate, Vasectomy, And Prostate Cancer

prostate-enlargement

The American Cancer Society estimates the following latest statistics about prostate cancer  in the United States for 2016:

  • About 180,890 new cases of prostate cancer
  • About 26,120 deaths from prostate cancer

And did you know that other than skin cancer, prostate cancer is the most common cancer in American men?  It is estimated 1 in 7 men will be diagnosed with Prostate Cancer during his lifetime…

Prostate problems are affecting men at younger and younger ages.  Unfortunately, today these disorders are now being suffered by men beginning after about age 35.  And some of the easiest ways to prevent prostate problems are by exercising regularly and avoiding chemical antihistamines which impair prostate function and impair the liver with overuse.

So, Gentlemen, if these disorders begin at such a young age, how old do you think you will be by the time 50% of you have an enlarged prostate? Between ages 51 and 60.  And by age 80, well over 90% will have an enlarged prostate. Of course, once again, this can be prevented.

What are the main causes of prostate enlargement?

  1. A diet with too little fiber
  2. A high fat diet
  3. Too much caffeine
  4. Too much alcohol
  5. Imbalanced hormones such as altered testosterone levels and elevated estrogen levels due to prostaglandin and essential fatty acid depletion
  6. Lack of exercise
  7. An overloaded and exhausted lymphatic system, usually due to overuse of medications

When the prostate is inflamed, enlarged, sexual intercourse is not recommended since it will irritate the prostate further and delay recovery.  Delay sexual intercourse until the inflammation is alleviated.

vasectomy

And what if you are thinking about, or have had a Vasectomy?  Studies have shown that a man must think through his decision before having a vasectomy. There is a larger risk of cancer of the prostate in vasectomized men. Why, do you ask? Sperm builds up due to the sealed off vas deferens. With this build up, the body reabsorbs the sperm and the body is prone to having an autoimmune response to its own tissue. Since the testicles are known as a very powerful energy focal point in a man’s life force, when something interferes with the free flowing movement of sperm, this means energy is blocked and not flowing as it should either. Eventually this results in degeneration. Stagnation, if you will.

Think twice before performing this procedure.  You will be preventing disease and a number of other undesirable side effects, and, your body will love you for it and will perform better sexually.

The liver is also affected from a vasectomy by causing blockage that leads to built up anger and irritability, the emotion related to an ill liver, and also leads to an inflamed prostate, abdominal pain, and sciatica or leg cramps.

Natural herbal therapy solutions?

Chinese herbs are the best at balancing us emotionally and physically.  Western herbs just don’t do it the same.  That is way, because internal energy balance is a necessary focus when helping the body overcome these types of male reproductive system challenges, I recommend Chinese herbs, whether negative (yin) formulas or positive (yang) formulas.

The liver is the filter of hormones.  And since the liver regenerates every 90 days, and hormone levels are crucial to prostate health, use the following combination to prevent and help the body heal from prostate inflammation, balance hormones, and elevate mood:

CHINESE POSITIVE PACK

MEN’S FORMULA W/ LYCOPENE

EQUOLIBRIUM

If you have had a vasectomy, have a presence of abnormal cells, even benign cells, or prostate cancer is present, negative Yin Chinese herbs are best to help the body overcome these challenges with also, great success.  I recommend the following combination therapy program for minimum 3-6 months to help the body fight abnormal cells:

CHINESE NEGATIVE PACK TCM

MEN’S FORMULA W/ LYCOPENE

EQUOLIBRIUM

Return to an active vibrant sex life with vitality, vigor and health…

Be well and be healthy, Gentlemen!

 

 

Prostate Cancer Prevention. What Should You Focus On?

IMG_4365.JPG

Most men are concerned about their prostate health. And the Cancer 2014 statistics in CA: The Cancer Journal for Clinicians shows the following:
Estimated New Cancer Cases and Deaths by Prostate Cancer, United States, 2014a
Expected Numbers of New Cancer Cases
Table 1 presents the estimated numbers of new cases of invasive prostate cancer expected among men in the United States in 2014. The overall estimate of 1,665,540 new cases of invasive cancers is the equivalent of more than 4,500 new cancer diagnoses each day.
ESTIMATED NEW CASES
233,000
ESTIMATED DEATHS
29,480

But some men have learned how to keep their prostate healthy by using preventive measures. Men. And those who love the Men in their lives. Focus on Glandular health and Urinary health to achieve true Prostate health. Traditional Chinese Medicine teaches us that even prostate pain is a symptom associated with the urinary system, mainly kidney health.

Causes of prostate cancer? A high sugar, high fat, high cholesterol, low fiber diet is a main cause! This diet causes the conversion of normal testosterone to di-hydro-testosterone by the enzyme 5-alpha reductase. In short, this conversion of hormones causes the body to develop abnormal cells, especially in the genital system. Antioxidants are essential for cancer prevention. Not only are men concerned today more than ever about preventing Prostate Cancer, but men are concerned about always maintaining a healthy, strong erection also, which is dependent on prostate health.

Naturopaths and Holistic Practitioners have experienced magnificent results in recommending natural herbal recommendations for prostate health and prostate cancer prevention. In my over 21 years of practice I have seen those same results. Combined, the following natural therapies help the body fight abnormal cell presence, help prevent abnormal cell development, help decrease prostate inflammation and pain, strengthen the prostate, balance hormonal levels, and increase sexual endurance and sexual vitality:
EQUOLIBRIUM

CHINESE NEGATIVE PACK

PAW PAW CELL REG (add if abnormal cells are present)

URINARY PACK

THAI-GO

In addition, avoid the following foods:

  • red meats, sodas, caffeine, alcohol (hard liquor and especially
    beer). These foods need to be avoided in absolute
    during healing.
  • tobacco, refined flours, and fried, greasy, fatty food should be avoided for good! If there is irritation of the bladder, or discomfort while urinating, eliminate spicy foods as well.

Remember, Gentlemen. Prevention is key. Along with the natural therapy I’ve recommended above, a more vegetarian, high fiber, low-fat, low-sugar diet is necessary. Make the changes. For Your Health.
