Breakthroughs in Diagnosis and Treatments
For the last 70 years doctors believed that too much testosterone is a big factor in prostate cancer. But emerging science proves that the reverse is actually true. As you age, your testosterone levels naturally decline. And more and more doctors now believe this is one of the biggest causes of prostate disease.
But it’s not just lower levels of testosterone that cause prostate problems for older men. The latest research shows that it’s also rising levels of estrogen. This discovery has led to a new treatment that is safe, effective and cheap. In fact, it’s available in every grocery store.
Dr. Mark Rubin, M.D. is also a professor at Harvard Medical School. He is a recognized expert on prostate disease. He has written 170 peer-reviewed papers on the subject. And he has performed studies for the National Institutes of Health and the National Cancer Institute.
Dr. Rubin was also one of the first researchers to discover the link between estrogen and prostate cancer. Together with Dr. Kirsten Mertz of Harvard, he designed a study to find “the genetic fingerprint” of prostate tumors.
Because the Quebec study shows that pomegranate seeds themselves fight prostate cancer… you can also buy the whole fruit. Again, you can buy fresh pomegranates or drink concentrated organic pomegranate juice from our health store. Click here to read more.
Prostate Cancer Treatment - Whole Foods Cures Cancer
Learn about prostate cancer treatment options. Meet Ken Walles a man who reversed his prostate cancer naturally. Ken has been cancer free for the last seven years and feels great. His only treatment was switching to a macrobiotic diet. This diet is based on organic whole foods. The staples are whole grains, beans, veggies, dark leafy greens, sea veggies, and fermented soy products. The Macrobiotic diet has cured many people of many different types of cancers over the last few decades.
ProstaLobium contains the herb epilobium, a traditionally-used western herbal medicine that maintains normal prostate and urinary tract function. The prostate gland is located in the male genital area and positioned behind the base of the penis, immediately below the bladder and surrounds the urethra (the urinary tube that leads from the bladder to the outside).
Once a man reaches the age of 45, prostate health becomes most important. It is an important gland of the male reproductive system whose main function is to produce an alkaline fluid. This fluid is secreted continuously, and the excess passes from the body into the urine. The rate of secretion increases greatly during sexual stimulation and the fluid contributes to the bulk of the semen. Proper prostate secretion is thus essential to proper sperm action. Taken on a regular basis, ProstaLobium® has anti-inflammatory and exudative properties.
My Prostate is scientifically formulated to support the health of the prostate.
Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) also known as benign prostatic hypertrophy (technically a misnomer), benign enlargement of the prostate (BEP), and adenofibromyomatous hyperplasia, refers to the increase in size of the prostate in middle-aged and elderly men.
Natural Prostate Health Breakthroughs
My name is Dr. James Lemire. I'm a board-certified medical doctor who believes strongly in the power of natural medicine. I became interested while I was growing up, watching my brother struggle with cerebral palsy. Back then, our family doctor made house calls and practiced natural medicine. Because he was an osteopath, he used manipulation and recommended vitamins and other nutrients. He even showed my mother how to make carrot juice to help boost my brother's immune system — decades before juicing became popular.
I saw how this caring doctor's non-drug, non-surgical remedies dramatically helped my brother. He was no longer in and out of hospitals with infections… his overall health greatly improved… and he was even able to start walking again.
That's why I decided to become an M.D. who integrates traditional and natural treatments — and do whatever it takes to make my patients better. For the past 10 years, I've run a natural medicine clinic in Ocala, Florida, where I treat patients with a variety of safe, noninvasive therapies that are proven to work.
The vast majority of my patients are over age 65. So it's not surprising to me that prostate problems are one of the top health concerns men see me about — and they're almost always mentioned whenever I do a physical.
Prostera™ Includes seven other nutrients to help you take control of your prostate and urinary problems. For starters, you get a generous amount of stinging nettle extract, which you won't typically find in other formulas.
Now, don't let the name "stinging nettle" alarm you. This safe, well-researched root extract has a calming, anti-inflammatory effect on your prostate. Research shows when it's combined with other nutrients it has a dramatic effect on urinary tract symptoms in men with prostate problems.
The real midlife crisis occurs in a man's prostate, the gland that adds fluid to semen so that he can ejaculate. Four of every five men over age 50 develop an enlarged prostate--or, more specifically, a condition called benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). One-fourth to one-third of them will experience BPH's uncomfortable and potentially dangerous symptoms.
"BPH causes no pain, but it does make urination more difficult," says Stephen Rous, M.D., professor of surgery at Dartmouth Medical School and a urologist at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, New Hampshire. Because the prostate surrounds the urethra, the tube that carries urine from the bladder, when it enlarges it restricts urine flow. This results in a need to urinate more frequently, often with increased difficulty getting started.
With prostate problems, you may also experience dribbling, because the prostate isn't as strong as it used to be and you can't urinate with the same force. Some men with this problem are unable to sleep through the night without waking to urinate, while others are completely unable to urinate--an emergency condition.
Cut the caffeine. "Caffeine in any form--coffee, tea, chocolate or soft drinks--tends to tighten the bladder neck and make it more difficult to pass urine," says urologist Durwood Neal, Jr., M.D., associate professor of surgery, urology, microbiology and internal medicine at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston.
An enlarged prostate may cause difficulty urinating, but you shouldn't experience pain. "The only prostate condition that leads to pain or discomfort is prostatitis, a bacterial infection that is treated with antibiotics," says Stephen Rous, M.D., professor of surgery at Dartmouth Medical School and a urologist at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, New Hampshire. If you experience painful urination, coupled with lower back pain, fever and pelvic pain, you may have a prostate or bladder infection. See your doctor.
Of course, it's wise for all men over age 50 to see their doctors to be tested for prostate cancer, a leading cancer among middle-aged and older men. And if you can't urinate at all, head straight to the emergency room: Urinary retention is extremely uncomfortable and can be life-threatening if left untreated.
Alcohol also tightens the bladder neck to hamper urination. And since it's a diuretic, it increases the amount of urine that builds up inside the bladder, adds Dr. Neal. "Drinking alcohol also makes the bladder operate a lot less efficiently. And the more you drink, the more problems you'll likely have."
Give a cold shoulder to cold medicines. Antihistamines and decongestants can cause even more harm to some men. In fact, taking large doses of cold medications occasionally leads to urinary retention--a potentially life-threatening condition in which you completely stop urinating. "Decongestants cause the muscle at the bladder neck to constrict, restricting the flow of urine," says Peter Nieh, M.D., a urologist at the Lahey Clinic Medical Center in Burlington, Massachusetts. "And antihistamines simply paralyze the bladder."
Be wary of spicy foods. Spicy and acidic foods bother some men with enlarged prostates, says Dr. Neal. "If you notice more problems after eating salsa, chili or other spicy or acidic foods, then you're among those men--and you should avoid that cuisine."
Manage your stress. Perhaps the most underrated trigger is unmanaged stress. "Stress plays a major role in prostate-related discomfort, because the bladder neck and prostate are both very rich with nerves that respond to adrenal hormones," says Dr. Neal. "When you're under stress, there are more of those hormones floating around--causing more difficulty in urinating."
Stress also triggers the release of adrenaline in your body, prompting a fight-or-flight response. "Just as it's impossible to get an erection during the fight-or-flight response, it can make urination difficult, too," Dr. Neal adds.
Get more amour. One way urologists help ease urination problems is to massage the prostate. For men with mild to moderate voiding difficulties, an alternative may simply be to have more sex. "Many men notice that the more they ejaculate, the easier it is to urinate," says Dr. Rous. That's because ejaculation helps empty the prostate of secretions that may hamper urination.
Empty your bladder before you go to bed. "Many men get the urge to urinate in the middle of the night, and it can be a real problem," says Dr. Neal. "But if you limit your intake of beverages after 6:00 P.M. and make sure you urinate before going to sleep, you can eliminate much of this problem."
