Bromelain for Testicular Pain

I have had chronic enduring testicular pain for more than a year and tried loads of natural remedies. Turmeric, ashwagandha, rhodiola, zinc, and daily juicing had no effect on my pain and inflammation. The only thing that helped was prolonged abstinence, but it is not easy to keep up long term or more than 4-5 weeks. Luckily last month, as I was eating dried pineapple fruit, I noticed a clear soothing effect on my pain, so after doing research on pineapple, I ordered bromelain and got incredible relief taking 3 or 4 daily capsules of 500mg bromelain at 2500gdu.

It's important to take bromelain on empty stomach away from meals.


Apple Cider Vinegar

Have taken 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar in glass of hot water for the last 3 mornings upon waking.

I am 74 and have an enlarged prostate. Dr has had me on doxazosin to relax prostate and bladder muscle. That works well but made me weary, weak, sleepy and dropped my blood pressure down to 90/60.Then he had me cut dose back to 1/2 pill (2.5 mg) and added finasteride to shrink prostate by stopping production of dihydrotestosterone. But that hormone is what makes a male horny. While on it I had nil libido, which did not bother my wife, but I hated it. Have stopped taking both for a week now.

Apple cider vinegar last 3 mornings, seems to work for me. Only had one pee upon rising and another at 1100 after drinking tea and decaff coffee. And sleeping from 2200 to 0500. Used to wake up at least once, sometimes twice for a pee.Great now.


Cayenne

On 21 January 2016 I was diagnosed with tubular prostate cancer phase four. My PSA was 901 on 5 February. I got my first Lucrin injection on 9 February and also started with artemether. Now after 11 weeks on 3 May my PSA was 69. I am working hard to reach 0 by the end of June 2016. I had a problem with my stream peeing.

For the past three days I am taking a 500 mg Cayenne pepper capsule three times a day. Really, the difference is amazing. I am pissing a beer bottle stream in a relaxing mood.

No one was more sceptical than me about natural cures, but through desperation I turned to the Internet to try and find help for my prostate issues. I am very grateful to every one who posted about apple cider vinegar because to my amazement it really works. I have had troubles for nearly four years without remedy, and yet within three hours of taking the vinegar (one tablespoon in water) the discomfort I have suffered for so long started to dissipate.

Two days later I feel so much better and I would encourage anyone suffering to give it a try. I have also started taking blackstrap molasses as recomended on another part of this site. I never post on websites but feel it is so important for sufferers to give it a try I had to help spread the word. Best wishes to everyone looking for help.
