For treatment of prostate disease, find a good holistic medical doctor with a good comprehensive program of nutrition, detoxification and hormonal balancing. He may also provide hydrogen peroxide, ozone and ultraviolet therapy. If necessary, he will do a rectal exam of the prostate and perform prostatic drainage massage to drain the prostate and possibly do a culture of the resulting expressed secretions to identify a specific antibiotic, if needed. He will do the PSA test, and if elevated and he also finds other suspicious test results, he may recommend ultrasound diagnosis of the prostate in place of biopsy because biopsy can spread any existing cancer.
Dr. Antonio Novak Feliciano, M.D., director of the Prostate Treatment Center in the Philippines (http://webcom.net/~ino//info21.htm) provides the details of learning prostate drainage massage at home.
Prostate massage pushes out the infection so that antibiotics can more easily reach and exterminate the harmful infection. Note that along with antibiotics, your holistic medical doctor may also prescribe Diflucan to prevent secondary candidiasis infection.
If infection exists but antibiotics are not necessary for the time being or have become ineffective, your holistic medical doctor may try broad spectrum natural herbal antibiotic extracts such as mushroom, olive leaf, grapefruit seed and garlic.
Prostate cancer can begin with chronic infection called prostatitis and non-cancerous chronic enlargement known as benign prostatic hypertrophy. The person usually doesn’t know he has prostate cancer at first because in its early stages it produces no symptoms or only very minor ones that can easily be overlooked.
The early symptoms of prostate cancer are very similar to those of benign prostatic hypertrophy, including getting up repeatedly at night to urinate; urinating frequently, but often only in small amounts; increased urgency to urinate; waiting longer for the urine flow to begin; a urinary stream that starts and stops; scrotal discomfort and pain; urinary incontinence; pain following defecation; pain during sex; and erection difficulties.
Having these symptoms does not mean that you have prostate cancer but if you have these or other symptoms, get yourself checked by a holistic nutritionally oriented medical doctor.
The prostate is shaped like a chestnut and is located under the bladder. It is wrapped around the urethra (urinary canal). It functions to add a lubricating fluid to the sperm before ejection during sex. Problems with the prostate cause inflammation and obstruction of the urinary canal.
Common causes of prostate disorders lead to hormonal imbalance, toxicity, lymph node congestion, prostate inflammation, swelling, infection, enlargement, calcification, restriction of the flow of blood and oxygen to the prostate, obstruction and eventually possible prostate cancer. Infected prostatic fluid within tiny sacs of the acini becomes increasingly thicker in consistency and eventually calcifies and obstructs the main ejaculatory ducts resulting in accumulation of infected prostatic fluid that must be drained by prostatic massage.
Take natural d-alpha (not dl-alpha) vitamin E 400 iu, 1 capsule of cod liver oil, 1 capsule of flax seed oil, and 2 capsules of lecithin oil capsules daily to improve oil and fat metabolism, minimize oxidation and increase blood flow in the prostate and all parts of the body.
The best way to ingest healthy oils is to eat raw whole nuts and seeds daily..
Beta-sitosterol extracts found in extracts of saw palmetto, as well as pygeum, stinging nettle, and pumpkin seeds support good prostate health primarily by maintaining healthy male hormone balance. These highly concentrated herb extracts contain many times more active beta-sitosterols than the ordinary unprocessed herb itself. If the label does not say “extract,” do not buy it and beware of unethical mislabeling by companies that sell extracts containing little or no beta-sitosterol.
Take up to 3,000 mg IP6, a natural component of grains, found to kill cancer cells, shrink tumors, and boost your immune system.
Dr. Abul Kalam Shamsuddin reports that IP6 cuts the rate of cancer cell division in half, normalizes cell division and up-regulates the product of the P53 gene, one of the body’s most powerful tumor-suppressor genes.
Take two collinsonia root 300 mg daily for maintenance and two twice a day for acute conditions because collinsonia has the remarkable ability to shrink inflamed blood vessels in the prostate and also in rectal hemorrhoids and phlebitis (inflammation of blood vessels in the legs).
Take the following antioxidants, glutathione mg along with N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) 200 mg and vitamin C 3000 mg daily to help detoxify the body.
Along with these supplements, take alpha-lipoic acid 200 mg daily to help raise levels of glutathione. Note that lipoic is also very beneficial for diabetes.
Also take Co Q10 75 mg, zinc 30 mg and selenium 200 mcg daily to enhance the immune system.
Shitake and reishi mushroom extracts have been found to have anti-tumor and anticancer protective qualities. Kelp and seaweed are also anticancer agents.
Take beta-carotene 25,000 iu, bioflavonoid complex 1,000 to 3,000 mg and grape seed extract 200 mg daily as a good source of powerful antioxidants.
