Prostate Hyperplasia

 

Prostate Benign Hyperplasia

One of everyman's greatest fears is that he will get up many times in the night and someday find that he is… unable...to...urinate...at all. Because of a prostate grown to the size of a small grapefruit. What solution awaits him in the sparse and rude armamentarium of conventional medicine under the heading of "men's health"? Surgical removal, radiation, chemo? Medications that raise risks of cancer, impotence, incontinence? Each of these "solutions" can be regarded as being only slightly better than his worst nightmare, painful and costly. Is there any hope for men doomed with...enlarged...prostates?

The Problem

The untold story of men's health is one of unbelievable risk and debilitation, incredibly high cost (to someone), poor outcomes (for the majority), and years of incontinence, impotence, and peripheral health problems they did not have before all the treatments started. Now, I grant that there are some sterling success stories out there. Many men have worked on past these challenges. This is not to deny those. But for the majority, the prognoses are not so rosy. For an objective review, go to http://health.nytimes.com/health/guides/disease/ prostate-cancer/radiation-therapy.html. There one will find a rather benign, glossed over description of what awaits those who receive even the most modern treatments, from risky radiation to painful tests and surgeries, freezing tissues, side-effect laden drugs, gut wrenching chemo, and unintended collateral damage years afterwards.

The key here is to shine light on what we do BEFORE prostates get as big as buses. The next section will speak to underlying causes of prostatitis (inflamed prostrate) and hyperplasia with a brief discussion about PSA scores, so that we can look anew at their real relevance. The last section is about how we can head off the problems at the pass and stay as far away as possible from the need for conventional treatments.

Underlying Causes

Everyman is different. Some prostates enlarge early from physical trauma to the prostate (high bicycle bars, horseback saddles). Some result from the same thing that enlarged their hearts (acidosis, inflammatory disease, hypertension, medications). For yet others it is chronic disease, heavy metal accumulations, chronic dehydration, bladder and kidney disease, and/or unhealed damage to the spine. Food additives, such as Aspertame, MSG, preservatives, and nutritional deficiencies are common contributors today. The worst medications for causing the calcium deposits in the prostate are acid reflux medications, followed by common calcium supplements.

Just being male assures that at some point the prostate will enlarge. In fact, if they live long enough virtually everyman can develop prostate cancer—albeit usually a slow growing cancer. By age 40 most prostates have already grown 50% from their original walnut size. By age 50, they have usually doubled; by age 60 tripling is not uncommon. Between inflammation (anywhere in the body) and actual cell proliferation (aka hyperplasia) over decades of living hard it is indeed a rare older male whose prostate is not enlarged.

For some time now, Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) scores have been the clinical marker for medical attention. However, objective research studies show little correlation between the PSA score and the risk of cancer. Indeed, the tiny arsenal of conventional medications for the prostate may reduce PSA scores, but they also increase risk of cancer. Even the $10,000+ biopsies of prostates often lead to false positives or inconclusive diagnoses. We have seen, for instance, PSA scores as high as 15.5 with no cancer, and PSA scores as low as 4.5 with fullblown cancer. Typically, we like see PSA scores of 0.0-2.0.

Natural Prevention & Reversal is the BEST Solution

Here some pointers:

1) Don't microwave your food, not even to warm it up,

2) avoid acid reflux by getting one's stomach acids back to pH 1.0 with Apple Cider Vinegar Caps,

3) lower blood pressure without medication,

4) lower cholesterol and triglycerides without statin drugs,

5) avoid dangerous food additives,

6) raise cellular iodine levels (Organo Iodine 2 drops in water daily),

7) take Magnazyme to overcome magnesium deficiency,

8) chelate with CardioFlow to remove heavy metals from your body,

9) avoid tobacco, alcohol, and eat fewer dairy products and red meat, more fresh fruits and vegetables, and

10) floss daily & keep teeth immaculate: Doing these will contribute substantially toward the elimination of the inflammatory factors that enlarge prostates and lower your PSA score, as well as risk of prostate cancer.

To reduce the hyperplasia and inflammatory aspects (i.e., increased the size of Prostate):

? Take (2) in the am and (2) in the pm of Crinum Prostate®, along with (1) Ultra-Turbo HG daily.

? If bladder infection or burning urination is a problem, take U-Tract [(2) capsules three times per day for 2 weeks; then (2) in the pm for two more weeks or until all symptoms of bladder infection is stopped].

? If there is recent history of kidney stones or kidney disease, add Cran -Caps and Ubiquinol CoQ10 per instructions of your healthcare provider. In addition to doing the above as indicated:

? Carefully read labels on food to avoid harmful substances

? Resolve all infections and fractures throughout body

? Utilize medical massage and cold laser as suggested

? Rehydrate your body with Ionized Alkaline Water, reduce caffeine

? Follow an effective exercise regimen to improve muscle tone/oxygen

? As blood pressure etc. improves, be ready to consult with your physician on systematic reduction of medications as indicated
