Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinager has reduced my acid reflux and the positive proof of killing all of the bacteria in my bladder came from a lab test when I thought I had a prostate infection. The doctor looked at the results and said my urine was so remarkably clean, (without any bacteria) she did not know what I had. Therefore, she sent to urology and it was discovered I had too much acid in my system. Much of it was too much coffee, orange juice and grape juice plus ACV. When cutting back on too much juice, my prostate symtoms were gone in a few days, but the proof of " no bacteria in my bladder" was reason enough to let others know the benefits of AVC. All bladders have ... cells floating around and that causes bladder and kidney infections. AVC can prevent that. DJS
I would like to know the missing details---how much you used, etc. Thanks. Bob

I tried apple cider vinegar and it did help some but made me constipated. Blackstrap molasses also helps some, but not great either. The best thing I have found for prostate is Quercetin along with Pollen extract and Z----d, an herbal formula that supports a healthy inflammatory response. Do a web search or find them at Amazon.com.
Don't understand the constipation bit. ACV is actually suggested as a quick (within 15 minutes) way to get your colon moving stuff out. For all ACV references, you must be using an unfiltered vinegar with the "mother" in it. That is all the sludge you will see at the bottom of the bottle.
My husband was extremely constipated because his bladder pushed up the intestines, thereby constipating him. The ER staff kept pushing Miralax. It contains petroleum. We are not putting that into our bodies. I made him a turkey dinner, with my mom's ethnic stuffing (lots of garlic). He doesn't have that problem now!
Apple Cider Vinegar
Cider vinegar sprinkled on raw tomatoes keeps the prostate gland healthy.
David, my hubby wants to know do you have more info about avc & tomatoes eaten together. Do you eat it right away or allow it to marinate for little while. Do you have a link to share where more details can be read? Thank you
EC: Sorry Olivia, that post is 10 years old, he'll probably never see it! Perhaps someone else can advise...
Apple Cider Vinegar and Baking Soda
I've had a swollen prostate for over a year now and I've tried most of the natural remedies, like ACV with bicarb, saw palmetto, willow herb and molasses with bicarb I also take MSM (Organic Sulphur) with vit C (calcium ascorbate) everyday. I am constantly waking throughout the night to urinate from 4 to 6 times a night. None of the above apart from the ACV and bicarb have had any relieving effect.
My problem now is that after I've urinated, for several minutes I have a sort of urinary incontinence not a lot but quite a few drips running down my leg. Do you have any solutions?
Yours Gratefully, Peter
Try the herb Stinging Nettles for awhile, this helps reduce the hormone buildup in the P gland.
What will likely help most will be to clean the Urinary system by taking Crannbery Softgels fallowed by Dr Christopher's Kidney/Bladder formula.
Pumpkin Seeds or Zinc supplementation is a must for Prostate health.
As it is the season, do eat lots of Watermelon to help clear the urine system. Natural diuretics like Coffee & Tea will help.
Peter/Australia, I started keeping an empty Folger's coffee can made of plastic, by side of bed to avoid burning out my adrenals from constantly getting up to go pee. [ the adrenals need 5 hrs of rest without getting up to be fully rested and recovered] so I just roll over, pick up container, empty, set down container, and go back to sleep. I'm trying all kinds of combinations to slow down the need to pee....hopefully soon.
Apple Cider Vinegar and Blackstrap Molasses
I got a friend to apple cider vinegar and blackstrap molasses who is on finasteride for prostate enlargement and was only sleeping 3 hr stretches. He is up to 6 hrs in a few days.
Apple Cider Vinegar and Blackstrap Molasses
I'm 62 going on 63 this month. I have been experiencing slow to dribble urinating for years. I thought getting up 5 to 7 times a night was normal. I felt in was normal since I'm getting older. But lately I decided to go get a check up to see if I had a medical issue. I took a fasting blood sugar test. My urine and blood test all returned normal. I was very pleased but symptoms remained.
My search lead me to BLACK STRAP MOLASSES (BSM) and APPLE CIDER VINEGAR (ACV). I immediately tried ACV that evening and noticed that night better rest and less trips to bathroom. I got excited. For the next 3 days I took 2 table spoon BSM in morning and 2 ACV at night. I began to see an immediate change in urination flow and less bathroom trips, but at night I was still getting up every 2 hours to pee. But I immediately saw a difference. I now could see light at the end of the tunnel.
I decided to experiment. I decided to stop taking 2 TBS of ACV AND 1 TBS of BSM at night. I have been taking 2 TBS BSM & 1 TBS ACV in the morning only. This has been nothing short of a miracle. BSM along with small amount of ACV has cured me. I not completely sure what was wrong me, but the symptoms are all but gone. Last night I slept 6 hrs straight for the first time in yrs. I have accomplished all this in less than 2 weeks. OH yea...I left out the most important ingredient, Prayer and Jesus Christ.
Thanks for reading, I will give more information soon on my recovery from prostate problems. Michael

Hello Michael, do you take it straight or mix it with something. I am 70 years old now and have the same symptoms you had.
I read about this and added a heaping tsp of vitamin c crystals to the Apple cider vinegar and blackstrap molasses and after a week or so it's working wonders. It started working by the 2nd day and I was very bad off.
Apple Cider Vinegar With Saw Palmetto Honey
ACV with saw palmetto honey - 2 to 3 tablespoons ACV, a coat of honey on bottom of glass and a dash of water-stir until diluted - 3 times a day for 3 weeks then once a day for 3 weeks - then 4 - 5 times a week once a day. Stopped taking nexium for reflux and saw palmetto for prostate.
Bee Pollen, Propolis, Royal Jelly, Nettle
1tsp pure honey 1 tsp bee pollen in hot water drink early morning and 1 propolis pill and 1 royal jelly pill and up to 3 nettle leaves pill or tea organic is best I think.
This is the remedy I use everday for enlarged prostate with concurrent infections I have had this problem for 7 years now and this is the first thing that has made feel 85% better good luck hope it helps someone.
Bee Pollen will cure almost any prostate problem you have in about 1 to 3 months. Be sure you are not allergic to it before you start taking it.
BSM ... Has helped my bladder, urethra and prostate by the 8th day... No more bladder pressure and from drips to stream. I mixed it with organic maple syrup and detox tea or green tea and a meal replacement.
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.
I would like to try black strap molasses for my bph [Benign prostatic hyperplasia]. I have type 2 diabetes. Can I still take 3 tbls 2-3 times a week or less than 3 tablespoons? Please advise, thank you.
Donald/NY, You may wish to keep reading and add ACV, it just may help your diabetes as well.
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?
Mohel, I have had a chronic prostate condition for 30 years. (Not a misprint.) I want this to work. I did as you suggested about 5 hours ago. I will report back in 2 weeks since that was the time indicated to reduce enlargement. I will be the acid test. I hope this works!!! (I'm optimistic.)
I have done this for several months without benefit. So there is at least one male who has not gotten relief.
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.

Everybody says blackstrap molasses works. What I would like to know is how long before I see results. Does it really shrink your prostate? And how can I tell?
May the Blackstrap Molasses be taken with coffee and creamer and still help with an enlarged prostate?
Some people find that Blackstrap taken in coffee works well for them; it would be worth a try.
If the iron from the blackstrap is what helps with enlarged prostrate though, I don't think it will work. Either the coffee or cream affect the iron absorption. (I was taking blackstrap in coffee and it did not help me when I was anemic.)

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.
To; Mugandani, The real thick stuff is, ORGANIC BSM, the regular blackstrap is pretty runny.
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.....
EC: Read more about Molasses here.
The other substance is baking soda. I heard about Vern thru another friend who knows him, and its baking soda 1:1 ratio, 1 teaspoon of blackstrap molasses and 1 teaspoon of baking soda mixed in water.
(Bedford, Nova Scotia)
Would like to know about the 1 to 1 ratio of BS molasses and soda. (TBSP) How many times a day?

Vernon, I'm interested in finding out what the other ingredient is that you mixed in with the BSM for cancer that spread to the bones please. Sincerely appreciate any information or advice you can give me. Thank you!
EC: That post is very old and he is unlikely to respond. Based on feedback we've received over the years, the other ingredient he is probably referring to is baking soda (aka sodium bicarbonate).
Blood in Semen
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.
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.
