[YEA]  I tried Blackstrap Mollases yesterday morning for the first time, and by the end of the day my prostate pain was mostly gone. Today, literally 30 hours after taking molasses a few times, all of the pain is completely gone. This stuff is pretty amazing.

I took 3 tablespoons, mixed with a little hot water, and added milk. Looked like a cafe au lait, tasted like old school licorice candy. Not as horrible as I thought it would be.

If your prostate is giving you pain, then try molasses immediately.

[YEA]  I and other men have been using organic blackstrap molasses (BSM) to shrink an enlarged prostate. Every male that has done this has gotten relief. All it takes is 3 tablespoons of blackstrap molasses 2 to 3 times a week.

A friend of mine even had PAIN in the prostate and refused what the doctor wanted to do and give. I told him how this worked for me and encouraged him to try it. With in four 4 days, he had relief from some pain and within 2 weeks, the pain was gone and shrinking had happened.

Blackstrap molasses is a must have for me! I use BSM once to twice a week to help myself. My Flow is 80 to 90 percent back!!

Please take it from me --- Mohel Castorena. IT WORKS!!

P.S. I found this out just on a craving. As a child I remember my mother, of blessed memory, would let me try a teaspoon every now and then. Other than that, when my wife got some to make cookies it sat in the refrigerator.

Well, one day I took a teaspoon. That turned into several teaspoons and I found out to my surprise and delight my flow had improved! I tried many over the counter items - All failed!

A family member has had this condition a few years. He took terazosin and passed out (it lowered his already low blood pressure) on his face. He suffered severe facial and jaw injuries. So beware. He stills suffers with bph. What type of Blackstrap Molasses or Apple Cider Vinegar should he try? Are organic brands better? Are the unfiltered (Bragg) brands of Apple Cider Vinegar better or worse?

[YEA]  For over 5 years I have Used Black Strap Molasses to help with prostate enlargement symptom, If you look on You Tube my name Mohel Castorena you will see it and Other Men have tried BSM (Black Strap Molasses) getting the same Results. 3 Table Spoons in milk or yogurt or both, twice or three times a week. Please let Men know this can stop the prostate enlargement even if it has begun to enlarge to become painful- I use a Organic BSM Unsulfered. IT WORKS. Mohel

Liquid Iodine supplementation is extremely helpful with male prostate. You will however need to take between 3-6 dropper fulls. When you squeeze the dropper, whatever fills up is considered a dropper full. Its a little confusing but a dropper full is never a FULL dropper. Please let me know how this helps. Also supplement with Selenium and get a good complete mineral supplementation. Take the Iodine daily. You should begin seeing really results in a matter of days. Life-Flo is a good brand choice for your liquid Iodine supplementation. Do not worry about taking a higher dose of Iodine, you will urinate out what your body doesn't use. Though every cell in your body needs Iodine to produce the proteins or carbohydrates in your blood, which is why higher dosage is needed to make sure the body has enough to direct it over to where you want it to go. Please let me know how this is working for you when you try it.

[YEA]  Prostate and Blackstrap Molasses

I have suffered with enlargement I have tried ACV with no help. But I have found that blackstrap molasses Fixed Me up and every other day 3 Tbs in 8 oz of yogurt and milk has done it for me. A friend of mine had his prostate in the stage of pain and VERY SLOW FLOW! He did not want to do the Doctor thing I told him about blackstrap molasses and in 5 days flow was better and pain started to subside. In a Month Much better! He is continuing with blackstrap molasses. It Cured him and Myself.

[YEA]  For the lady with Metastatic Breast cancer which has spread to the bones. Contact me! I was diagnosed with metastatic prostate cancer which had spread to the bones. The second opinion concurred. After taking Molasses with another substance for 10 days I had another bone scan. I was afraid to open the envelope that was sent me containing the results. I burst out bawling like a baby when it said: No convincing evidence of an osseous metastatic process. I am very very happy.....

Blood in Semen

Posted by Penknee (North Bend, Washington, United States) on 06/29/2013

This question is from my daughter, a situation has arisen with my boyfriend. He is only 23 years old and having serious problems with what seems to be his prostate. About a year ago, he noticed blood in his semen. He also was experiencing severe lower back pain and difficulty gaining an erection at certain times. This obviously freaked him out, so he began looking for answers online and through his peers. He associated his symptoms with a prostate infection, and when he saw his family doctor, that is what they told him as well. They told him things like, "As long as the blood isn't in your urine, you have nothing to worry about, " "This looks like a classic prostate infection, " "Nothing a few antibiotics can't fix, " "No harm to your partner. " My boyfriend took the antibiotics for 14 days and the bleeding stopped along with the other symptoms. However, the exact same problem came back this past February. He went back to his doctor who referred him to a Urologist who wanted a urine sample, but ran no tests of his semen, kidneys, liver, or any other body parts that may have been affecting this. The Urologist ended up putting him on the same medicine he was taking but advised him to take it for a longer period of time (1 month). After he finished this, the problem seemed to go away until just a week ago. He pleasured himself and noticed a large amount of blood all throughout his semen. He brought it to my attention, and I told him to see his doctor. He argued with me, because he felt as if they'll just put him right back on the meds, sort of shrugging it off like before. We ended up having sex just a few nights ago and as he pulled out to finish, I realized the huge amount of blood in his ejaculate. It scared me so bad that I told him he needed to go to the emergency room. Unfortunately, he could not go right away, because of work and such, but he ended up going the following night. I went with him for support. At the emergency room, they requested a urine sample and asked him some questions. This time, they took a blood sample to test his PSA levels, which turned out to be completely normal. Yet, they still sent him home with the same medication as before calling it an infected prostate. My boyfriend feels as if they are not testing him enough in other areas that may be causing the prostate to continue becoming infected. He also asked the doctor at the emergency room if it could affect me from us engaging in unprotected intercourse. The doctor said "absolutely not. " But, we are obviously still very worried about his ongoing issue. After these antibiotics, it will most likely just come back. I do not know if there is any advice you can give me, or if you even know anything involving a matter like his. But, if you can, it would be greatly appreciated. Our worst fear is prostate cancer or some sort of other fatal condition.

I want you to know that you taking the time to read this and get back to me means so much. Thank you in advance!

Large glass of Cranberry Juice every day for rest of your life. And no more prostate problem. Older people should take 2 glasses a day. 1 when you wake up and 1 when you go to sleep.

Two remedies for prostate issues that worked well for me and for others with prostate issues:

* Apple Cider Vinegar - 1 tbsp in a glass or juice, once or twice a day. Can increase the dose gradually later if necessary.

* Molasses & Baking Soda - this can knock over 2 birds with one stone based on the experiences of others, ie. both prostate enlargement AND prostate cancer. 1 tsp molasses, and 1 tsp baking soda. Increase dose gradually as necessary.

Can totally relate to the issues with doctors. They don't have time to really look into our health problems in detail anymore. You need to spend a lot of money or have a very caring doctor to get good quality care. Can't entirely blame them, they are typically over-worked & stressed.

I have had similar problems 2 times in my life. Blood in my semen after a very intense orgasm. I was maybe 28 yrs old. The first time it happened I was told, by a Dr, that it was due to a busted blood vessels in my urethra caused by the intense orgasm. It happened again much later in my life and I just chalked it up to the same thing and didn't worry about it. It never happened again that I know of.

[YEA]  First off, thank you to earth clinic and all the people that post on here. It is such a great site.

My partner was suffering from enlarged prostate. He was suffering quite a bit, hard to pee and frequently wanting to pee. He was put on a 3 month waiting list to have an operation. He was not sure he could last that long because of the pain of it.

He started taking 10.000 Hu cayenne tablets. Think he took about 6 a day. Within about two days the pain had eased off and he was able to pee properly again. He was amazed and so was I. He cancelled the appointment to be operated on and is now completely fine.

Could someone let us know.... A daily dosage of 600-mg of cayenne peper would equate to how many teaspoons?

I began taking it today in hopes of easing my BHP symptoms... Started very cautiously with three x 1/8 teaspoon servings in 3-oz V-8 juice diluted with 3-oz of warm water... Taken after meals. I have a small hiatal hernia and battle GERD as a result. So need to be wary when ingesting pepper. But I seem to have tolerated this small dosage rate quite well. Now, I am wondering what it takes to ingest a total of 600-mg. Taken in three servings (200-mg each).

Thanks to all posters for the very interesting information.

[YEA]  I had been using saw palmetto for the last 7 months. Urine flow was half of what it used to be (less in the morning but "improved" to about 1/2 of what it was when I was younger (now 59).

It seemed to be helping but I wasn't totally satisfied and started looking elsewhere. I found references to cayenne pepper. I read more about supposed "cancer" fighting properties. I'm getting more into "natural" methods and away from pharmaceuticals and thought I would give it a try.

I had my first taste this morning after breakfast: I used 1/2 tsp in half cup of warm water. Chugged it and oooh boy, it was hot. Not burningly so but enough. Without word of a lie, when I peed about 1. 30pm, flow was twice what it usually is. Four hours? Sounds dubious but it's true. All I know is I'm a believer (at this point) and am going to continue this level of cayenne (1/2 tsp in half cup of warm water 3x/day (after each meal).

Take this for what it's worth. Good luck to you :)

No specific quantities as there are no claims that it kills cancer cells. Just some studies suggest it does in mice. It has not been tested on people.

Powdered quantities suggested range from 1/4tsp to 1 tablespoon in 1 cup of water 3x a day (preferably after meals as the food has a "gentling" effect). A lot depends on how much you can tolerate. Upset stomach is a common first reaction.

I started with (and am still using) 1/2 tsp in 1/2 cup of warm water. I had a little bit of "turmoil" (still do--it's not a "leisure" beverage to sit down with and enjoy) but it settled down quickly.

Everything I've read says powdered in very warm water (I'm using 1/2tsp of Bulk Food Store cayenne powder--25 to 35 thousand SHU--in 1/2 cup very warm water) is best. It's benefits hit you immediately whereas the capsule has to dissolve.

Capsules work too but are slower.

As a side benefit to the prostate issue, it is clearing up my sinus and coughing/congestion issues related to the bronchitis I'm currently "enjoying".

It's a wonder pepper. I do believe in it at this point.

[YEA]   Cayenne does so many wonderful things. There are so many testimonials it will make your head spin, just like ACV. Buy your cayenne in powder or liquid form. Forget about the capsules; when your mouth senses the heat, your stomach will immediately release juices to protect itself, something the capsules don't do. Also, the more heat units, the better. I am taking 160,000 heat unit cayenne pepper that I buy on-line. Research Dr richard Schultz and Dr. Christopher (can't remember his first name) on the internet. Good luck everyone.

Dr Mathias Rath, a great in the science of natural health and antedotes, explains that of of all the earths mammals, the human is the only species that does not produce its own requirement of Vit C. We pay the price, unless one ingests vit C on a regular basis. Cayenne, ginger, are loaded with Vit C.

British Medicine discovered the C discrepancy after 150 years, heart attack was then known as Scurvy!

To this day, the Nation Health Services of the UK or anywhere else will not reduce the Hospital bed occupancy by making this simple truth known to every school child and expectant mother. One day the medics will be looked at as we now view the infamous, demonic inquisitors. It is after all, thier own fault, they refuse to see TRUTH and continue to support the purveyers of slow profit making death, instead of using thier existing medical platform to improve themselves in order to improve the health of thier fellow travellers.

How much cayenne is necessary to reduce the size of the prostate or to kill cancer cells in the prostate? I bought capsules containing 600 mg.

Replied by Teresa Morgan

as much FRESH cayanne as you can handle, as often as you can, it should be fresh, and in the mouth. Bypassing the tastebuds reduces effectivness greatly. Drying hurts its effectivness, but not as much as other processing. As long as it is dried naturally, and organic. My husband simply puts it on his food like regular pepper, every day. Or eats a fresh pepper every day.

I am 68, have had blood in semen for about 15-20 years, prostate checked once a year and normal enlargement for my age. I started to spice my food at lunch time with about a bit less than level teaspoon of chili pepper in liquid form. After a few days blood gone from semen completely. I also used to have one testicle where I believe some of the blood accumulated and always was somewhat larger, that testicle is also back to normal size. I have had no difficulties with urination before but perhaps urine flows a bit better. What beats me is why regular doctors, whom I respect and consult when I need to, do not seem to receive any training on natural medicine as a complement to modern medicine. It only damages their image when people experience what I have

[YEA]  One week before I turned 40 I became very ill- flue like symptoms. Docter told me I had prostrate problems. Since then, urinating wasn't what it use to be! 2 years ago I met this friend who only took natural medicines, and she recommended Cayenne Pepper. I've been taking it in powder form -3x per day with luke warm water- and I can honestly say i pee like a 30 year old!

I've just finished reading a report from "pepperlover" in topix forum.. who was diagnosed with prostate cancer, he didnt want it removed and started taking 600mg of cayenne over a day.. In a few days he was able to urinate freely again and.. within two weeks he could orgasm again.. When he went to the doctor for a check up a month or two later.. the test showed no signs of cancer the doctor couldnt believe it.... He got the idea from a trail on rats who were given the human prostate cancer cell... The good news seems to be that cayenne seems to be working on other types of cancer cells.

Dear Lonnie, If you haven't seen this Earth Clinic page yet, I think it will encourage you.

I have a self diagnosed prostatitis problem. I decided to try applying lugol's iodine topically to the general area around the prostate. I determined this was a good way to try and kill the unwanted bacteria. I have been doing this for about a month I think. It seems to have given me some relief. I apply it in the morning and at night. It can dry out the skin and burn some. But its good effects out weigh the bad in my opinion.

Doctor David Brownstein has written several books concerning the thyroid and iodine you might research iodine to see what you are getting into. Because if your thyroid is not healthy or have hashimottos disease it could affect you. The iodine can irritate the thyroid if you have hashimottos disease. I believe a lot of people have a iodine deficiency but it can be tricky to try and use iodine.

Look up Lugols iodine on amazon and read the reviews some are pretty remarkable. Swansons website sells it along with amazon.

Try D M S O with lugol's solution, you should have your thyroid monitored when doing iodine. Also cranberry is very good for urinary track, get a lab test to know exactly what your dealing with. Hope this helps.

I just want to add my 2 cents here. I've suffered from chronic prostatitis for over 5 years myself. Been through all sorts of treatment options. The doctors always want to throw antibiotics in me. I've also tried numerous supplements & other natural remedies. They just don't work! Let me tell you why.

It's most likely not a problem with bacteria or viruses. It's more than likely due to CANDIDA. I've learned a ton of things from Bill here at EC. Prostate problems can be a problem with candida and also actually directly related to the thyroid as well. How many of you know that thyroid problems can also lead to prostate issues?

I would suggest to look at the Candida page here at EC for more help. I'm currently under the anti-candida protocol provided by Bill myself. You have to remain disciplined on the protocol & keep a positive attitude. It's not going to be an overnight cure.

Candida takes years to build up in the body but you won't see very many traditional medicine doctors acknowledge that if there life was on the line. Candida untreated can certainly lead to a number of debilitating diseases such as cancer. I really think the poster needs to consider candida as a probably cause. Thanks & God Bless!

Coconut Oil

Posted by Olivia (Brooklyn, New York) on 02/10/2008

[YEA]  Coconut oil reduced my husband's swollen left testicle about 85 percent in one week of light massage. My husband is terrified of seeing a doctor. There is no negotiating with him. The answer is a resounding no. For the past two months I have been giving him a combination of saw palmetto and pygeum tablets for prostate problems. He had terrible dribbling of urine and waking up many times per night. I gave him two of each tablet twice per day and within three days his bathroom runs were reduced to twice per night from four or five times. After about six weeks was reduced to once per night. I was therefore in shock when one week ago I noticed one testicle was three times its size and hard. He had been hiding it because he was afraid I'd insist on him going to the doctor. He said there was no pain. I was terrified of the thought of testicular cancer but he said he did not care he was not going to the doctor. He is 63 and cannot remember the last time he saw a doctor. Well I prayed and the thought of massaging it with coconut oil came to me. It has been one week since I'd take some oil in my hand and massage lightly from groin to under and around both testicle area. I'd then take another generous helping of oil and cup the swollen testicle in it while praying. The swelling has gone down about 85 percent in one week. I will continue doing so even after all the swelling leaves because I am hoping for a complete cure of the dribbling, which is also much better. I forgot to mention that I also started giving him two ounces of noni juice and two ounces of goji juice per day. I was so scared that I tried everything. I think the coconut oil is key though. I give one juice in the morning and the other at night.
