Enlarged Prostate? I'm 29 years old. my problems: fast and frequent need to urinate. The quality of orgasm is different; it's not as satisfactory as before.
re: How my 'hated' remedy freed me from the prostate discomfort. Hi, For the last 2 months I have been suffering from sleeplessness caused by my prostate disorder. I started reducing consumption of liquids closer to evenings; thinking I would not be going to the toilet 3 or 4 times during the night. It did not help. Recently, for 2 consecutive nights I was forced to go to the toilet 5 and 6 times. My sister reminded me of a grain used in the Afghan cuisine and as well for kidney problems. It is known in Farsi as 'Shanbalila' in Arabic al-holba'. This grain's name in English is Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum). I bought a small package of 200g. (Imported from India) in an Afghan variety store in Montreal for 2 dollars. Since my childhood' I did not like the smell of the thing and the day my mother put some of it into a sweet rice dish I refused to eat it at all and invited myself to my aunt's place to avoid being forced to eat. After my 2 troubled nights, I looked into a book of remedies published in Iran in Persian language. I found this Fenugreek recommended for my kind of problem. According to the simple instruction, I put approximately 2 teaspoons of the grain in a pot of boiling water and turned the heat off shortly and left the infusion for the evening. Before going to bed I drank a cup of the liquid and started wondering what kind of a 3rd night will I be going through. At the early hours of that night, I woke up twice for the toilet, each time after an hour of shallow sleep. Afterward I woke up around 7 in the morning without any pressing need to the toilet. Apparently the infusion took a few hours to start working. I used this remedy for 3 more days and with 2 -3 cups per day. Now, I wake up only twice in the night, if I don't drink a lot of liquids in the afternoon. Whether it cured an infection somewhere in my body or else, it did something good to me and I sleep well enough at nights now. The only aftermath of the fenugreek is an unpleasant odder (for me) in the armpits that does not go away after 2-3 showers. One has to use a strong deodorant for a few days even after the treatment. Good luck!
Just 3 weeks ago my husband had HIFU (high intensity focused ultrasound) for prostate cancer. He is completely back to his old self, and never felt any pain or discomfort, never had the threat of maybe he would be incontinent or impotent. It was so easy!
HIFU, as it is called, is in clinical trials in the USA, but your urologist won't tell you about it, ours tried to discourage us, by telling us it wasn't approved by the FDA, but after much searching and studing--we knew it was the right decision! No cutting!
HIFU has been used in Europe for 16 years with a 94% cure rate. It would be 100% except if the cancer has spread outside the gland too far, then it cannot get it all, neither can surgery though, chemo is the choice then, but HIFU can be done first.
There are two HIFU machines, the Albatherm only has one size setting, so if your gland is larger than the setting it also may not get all the cancer. But the Sonablade500 can be adjusted to accomodate all sizes and if the gland moves during the procedure then so can the ultrasound beams. The Sonablade500 is made in the USA, while the Albatherm is made in Europe.
Because HIFU hasn't finished clinical trials in the USA it isn't FDA approved, so you must go outside the US to have it done. We went to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. We met Dr. S. Scionti ( www.internationalhifu.com ) and his team of nurses, anathiesologist and mechanics for the machine the night prior to the treatment at Xavier Hospital, which was spotlessly clean. The treatment took 2 hours, then we waited for husband to come out of his sleep, and we went back to the hotel, we had dinner out, and life was good! A supra-pubic catheter is installed, it is needed as the doctor uses it to clean him out prior to treatment, then there are tiny particles of prostate that must leave the body and the catheter makes this easier, or they could clog up the urethra. The catheter was a bummer, stayed in 12 days, but I understand you get the catheter with surgery too. Radiation causes other cancers, like bladder and renal.
HIFU is the answer! For complete info here is a website from the Prostate Cancer Research Institute, an independent research charity which explains it: http://www.prostate-cancer.org/education/novelthr/Chinn_TransrectalHIFU.html
Dr. S. Scionti is the most experienced in HIFU outside Europe, over 400 treatments. He lives in Hilton Head, South Carolina. 888-874-4384
It just makes me sick that the rest of the world has this easy treatment and we've never heard of it!
The Japanese use HIFU for bone, liver, kidney, pancreatic, prostate and breast cancer.

For the slow urinating people, I drank HORSETAIL tea [equestrium avense] for 2 - 3 days then stopped and everything was lovely. From then on I only drank whenever things slowed and usually it only needed one cup and I was back to normal, whatever that is.
Hello; I have been following the H202 protocol for about two months and have not noticed any improvement in my prostatitis condition. After doing the build up to 25 drops for 3 times a day I continued for three weeks and now I'm using 25 drops x2 dally and still experience a continual burning. I have adjusted my diet and reduced alcohol consumption but still no improvement. Frankly, I'm wondering if H2O2 really works. Could you offer any helpful guidance? Thank you, Thom
Iam 81 years old and have had BPH or what is commonly called an enlarged prostate for more than 20 years. I have taken all kinds of prostate-shrinking medications prescribed as well as undergone TURP surgery several times. All of these medications and procedures have done little to reduce the size of my prostate. Although the frequency of my urinating at night has decreased, there has been no significant shrinkage of my prostate.
I started taking 35% food grade Hydrogen peroxide more than 2 months ago. My question is, can H2O2 help in shrinking my prostate by attacking the cells responsible for enlarging it?
Thank you for allowing me to pose this question

Cuddo's again to you Earth Clinic. I had pain spasm in my lower stomach area at the belt line and had trouble eliminating my bladder Sunday night. I awoke with pain and it felt like it was pushing on my prostate. I goggled your site on Sunday morning and found a remedy of 6 drops of hydrogen peroxide in a half glass of warm water every 4 hours. I tried this and started to feel relief 30 minutes later. It became easier to empty my bladder and by night fall I was pain free. I will stay on this regime reducing to 4 drops per half glass of water for the week. Bless you. Davey D.
I am desperate to find cure for my prostatitis with enlarge prostate. I hated surgery, antibiotic didnt work. I tried everything herbal etc...looking for cure . My urine test would always reveal plenty of pus. I tried to experiment on myself by injecting 1% of 30ml.Hydrogen Peroxide directly to my pen (urethra) through a syringe. At first it was painful -- bubbles came out of my pen. Now it's more than one week, my sacrifice paid off. My urine has improved. Thanks a lot.

Up until last June, I had been getting up two to four times a night for years due to an enlarged prostate. Then one day I was painting the base of my bed and didn't want to set it back on the floor, so I put a couple barbells under the head to keep the painted base off the carpet. Hit the sack that night and woke up at 5:00 -- couldn't believe that I had slept all night. So, I went to the Internet to do some research and ran across the "inclined bed therapy" concept.
Now I'm at 6 inches high and sleep well every night and only get up once. Also had a cough that would wake me during most nights... that went away. Varicose veins have subsided. My wife no longer snores. This one simple move has changed our lives - and it can change yours. Regardless of the problem you have, try it and see what happens. I don't take any drugs and sleep like a log every night.

I am seeking an alternative treatment to help an 86 yr old man discard the use of a catheter, which his doctor put in 2 yrs ago to restore urine flow. His PSA was 14. 5 and protein in Kidneys was 5. 5. The prostate was large. If anyone is aware of a treatment that will restore natural flow, please share. In the meantime I would like to share that he is on supplements and homeopathic preparations. He also incorporated Quantum Energetics, and while doing those sessions he was examined and his doctor did annouce that his prostate shrunk to a little bigger than a young man's, and PSA was 4. Protein went down to 1.5. However, it did not restore his urine flow. Weeks later for whatever reason his Kaiser Doctor is now telling him that his prostrate is enlarged.
I am now wondering why when the prostate got smaller, why he still could not urinate. So I am wondering if the bladder now has an issue because the catheter has been in for 2 yrs. Keep in mind that every month it gets replaced. Any suggestions?

Want to report back - iodine is still working great after several months on it. I have tried many remedies and iodine is by far the best I've seen. Have learnt to add Vitamin C to my iodine to make it gentler - it converts elemental iodine to the salt form, and this is the form we find in nature.
I've also had some lesser success with the following: molasses, ACV, Australian mountain pepper, and a vitamin supplement (which contained iodine). None of these were as effective as taking Iodine. Many of the other remedies worked well at first and then became less effective, or even completely ineffective.
I've been using an iodine supplement and found it to be highly effective. When I have a bad attack (painful urination and even sometimes blood) all I need to do is take about 50-70mg of liquid iodine and that fixes it up quickly. Best part is that I am certain it addresses the underlying cause - which is most likely fungal.
How to take:
Firstly you should choose an iodine preparation that is intended for internal use. "Lugol's Iodine" is NOT a brand, it is a type of preparation named after the French physician J.G.A. Lugol, and this one is safe for internal use. I don't recommend tincture of iodine as this one contains alcohol - but if you are stuck and in an emergency this will work.
Secondly, be mindful of strength. Most preparations have about 50mcg (this equals 0.05mg). The "mcg" means micrograms, and this is an extremely weak preparation. I need about 5mg (5 milligrams) before I find it to be medicinal for the prostate, that's 5000mcg, or 1000 drops of the extremely weak preparation.
Products that use the "Lugol's" preparation are typically 6.25mg per drop (5% Lugol's solution). That is more than 100 times stronger than the weak iodine supplements on the market.
To cure prostate issues, as stated previously, requires about 50-70 mg of iodine taken once a day. I take it in the middle of the night (or you could take it several hours after food so as not to upset digestion). In the morning I take a probiotic, preferrably one with more than 10 strains.
Expect other pleasant benefits from this - such as improved memory, concentration, and in my case my sense of smell is returning. The latter was caused by chronic rhinitis that I've had ever since I was a young child, and that's some 30 odd years ago!
Remember, Lugol's is not a brand, he is a physician who standardized this preparation.
I was ever been a prostatitis patient for seven years. The prostate expand and pain sharply. My waist pain, dizzy and weak. I had seen many famous doctors in china, had used the microwave, infrared ray scan, acupoint injection, squeeze medicine into anus to cure the disease. But I failed. I had taken many kinds of Chinese herb medicine secret recipe and used many kinds of specific medicine that advertised Chinese medicine from one Chinese prostate hospital medicine every day, it only can relieve my pain, I wasn't cured. Recently, I visited a famous prostate disease research institute. (They said that the cure rate is 85%. ) I was aroused by their method. And I used new cured plan which I synthesized seven years experience. By this way, I was recovered only in one month. All the symptom disappear, and the prostate secretion test wasn't found bacteria. The whole body felt relaxed, the idea of committing suicide all gone. And I felt the life is so beautiful and valuable. It is said that a prolonged illness makes a doctor of patient. When you have this illness, you can learn from experience, and choose the best cured way. Absorb the good points of the every doctors and create the new way. As a recovered patient, I know the pain of prostatitis patient deeply. So I like to share my experience with the cyber acquaintance.
My cure method include seven parts. (It is specialize in chronic prostatitis. The acute prostatitis is very easy to cure, if you eat portalaca olerrcea for ten some days continuously, you can recover.)

Point and whole synthetical balance treatment
1. Eat four kinds of nature product every day. Bee honey, royal jelly, bee pollen and propolis. Building up your health, increasing sexual activity and enhancing immunity , etc. Increasing the content of zinc element in prostate. I can guide you how to use them together.
2. Use Chinese medicine powder (involve scolopendra subspinipes mutilans, phellodendron, Chinese schneid, elaphe moellendorffi, etc) Ten kinds of ingredient powder mix a kinds of special vinegar product , external use to cover two acupoints that connect everyday. Prostatitis is so difficult to cure because eating medicine is very difficult permeate prostate. The medicine consistency can't last for a long time. External use covering acupoints can effect the prostate all the time and maintained high consistency.
3. Take a Chinese herb medicine prescription everyday. This prescription can attack prostate and kill the germ in urinary organ. But the medicine will not sap your vitality. There isn't side effect. I can provide this prescription.
4. Boil some Chinese medicine , pour into a basin, and sit on the basin' s medical water for ten minutes before bath every day. So the medicine can kill germ in urethra and scrotum, effect to prostate directly. The medicine won't be absorbed by intestines and stomach. There is no side effect. I can provide the prescription.
5. Practise Qi Gong (a system of deep breathing exercise) I can guide you to practise. Stimulate the circulation of the blood and cause the muscles and joints to relax. Increase immunity, impact the focus. This kinds of Qi Gong is very safe and there is no deviation. But you can't practise other kinds of QiGong freely, because some kinds of Qi Gong aren't corresponding to prostatitis.
6. Use K-01 prostate rehabilitator for half an hour when you go to bed every day. K-01 prostate rehabilitator is a help-yourself physiotherapy apparatus which cures BPH. Employing the alternative operation of the high frequency non-thermal effect and magnetic kick. It serves to diminish inflammation, relieve pain, destroy harmful microorganisms, improve local micro-blood circulation and is very effective in curing frequent micuition, urgency of urination, painful urinary stuttering , and dysuria caused by prostatitis. It only need to put it on perineum.
7. No smoking (If you can't stop, try not to smoke so much ). Stop drinking, stop piquancy foods (such as capsicum , ginger , garlic, pepper , etc) , stop eating fried foods, bacon, and flame broiled meat. ( because the temperature is about 300 celsius degree, so the protein had been denaturalization , the protein had been hot. If you cook it by water, the temperature will not exceed 100 celsius degree. If you use the micro-wave oven to cook the meat, the temperature will exceed 100 celsius degree too, so it is hot. ) Stop eating chanticleer, dog, pig's knuckle, donkey, tortoise , cow, sheep, ginseng, pilose antler, Equus asinus L, longan, lichee , bamboo shoot, onion, mushroom( mushroom kinds of food will cause prostate swell), areca and all the sea and river animal ( such as fish, tortoise, shrimp, crab, etc). Stop eating all the hot chinese medicine. After you recover, you have to continue to stop eating these food for 3 months, in order to solidify. This is the whole body treatmnet, regard the whole body 's the former feminine and negative, don't eat the food that make against prostatitis recovered. The foods that I suggest you eating is : (1) You can eat meat involve the pig's muscle, heart, kidney, lung, tongue, stomach, the duck, the chicken and hen, egg, the quail, the pigeon, the snake, the cat, milk, animal blood (after boiling). (2)Vegetable: except the leek, the cushaw, the onion, the aubergine, the bamboo shoot and the garlic , you can eat all the others vegetable. (3) Fruit: except the lichee, the longan, the mango, the durian and the tree pineapple, you can eat all the others fruit. (4)All the corn and the legume foods can be eated. Such as cereals, rice, potato, pasta, sugar and tea can be eaten. But the coffee and chocolate is a little hot. The sea animals can't be eated, but the sea plants can be eated, such as the kelp and the laver can be eated. (5)Bread in particular is cooked at a high temperature by baking, but the bread primary ingredient is amylum , amylum is not easy to change into hot food in high temperature, and the protein is easy change into to hot food in high temperature. If the bread is not very burnt, so you can eat the bread. If the bread is very burnt (such as it it had been black), it will be hot food too. (6) Do some cooking method: when you cook rice, pork, etc, you have to pour water to boil, the water is boil at 100 celsius degree, the temperature won't above 100 celsius degree. If you boil with heavy-fisted boiler, there are so much water in it, although the temperature is above 100 degree, the protein will not change its quality. Protein is easy be burnt in high and dry condition, if the meat turn black and yellow , it must be hot food, such as barbecue chicken. If you stir-fry the pork by plant oil, because the oil is under the pork, the oil can suffer very high temperature and won't change its quality, so the oil protect the pork not to change its quality. Such as you can stir-fry the vegetable with peanut butter. You can make a stew with chicken , rice and vegetables. The oil can suffer very high temperature and never change it's quality, the amylum take second place suffer temperature, such as you can eat the hamburger (the bread main component is amylum), but if the bread had been baked to black, it will be hot food too. And the protein can't suffer high temperature without water, such as you bake the chicken , the protein is easy change its quality. Peanut oil , olive oil , canola oil, soybean oil, palm fruit, can be eaten with do some cooking.
The treatment of prostatitis is a difficult problem, in the world. If the patient can do the seven part that I summarized and undergone experience in seven years, the patient can recover in one or two months.
The modern science can fly to space, array gene, but can't deal with prostatitis. There is a strong membrance wrap up prostate. If the germ infect it , it is a garden of eden for germ. All the antibiotic can't kill germ in prostate thoroughly. And the germ is easy to resistant antibiotic. With the science develop, suppose the patient can be freezing to -10 degree for some days , and rise the temperature to bring back the patient to life. The germ had been killed by the low temperature. So it can cure the prostatitis quickly. But now , the prostatitis patients have to use the seven part of Chinese medicine "point and whole symthetical balance treatment" to cure. I think, except the patient who have other serious disease and suffer from general debility, every body can recover. Others BPH (Benign Enlargement of the Prostate) is easier to cure. You can according to the "point and whole synthetical balance treatment". There is no side effect in the way. I am an English teacher in Gao Zhou Normal College of China. So it is very convenient for me communicate with you in English. If you need help and more detail, you can send an E-mail to me, drop me a line, or telephone me.

Enlarged Prostate: Just today realized the offical corelation with Lemon Juice and hot water reducing prostate issues. I had noticed, when I drank this beverage vs coffee, no symptoms appears. Coffee tends to aggravate pain, with lemon & hot water reducing it, with almost immediate reactions, within one hour. I had always used it for cleansing mode or health binges. I also realized I had always drank fresh grapefruit juice daily, up until these issues surfaced. Guess it is time to start keeping it around again. I had attributed to other lifesyles changes I have made in the past few years. Know I know, better. Good luck everyone in your self-doctoring. Truthfully it works better, with correct knowledge. Thank You website creator from all of use whom use you as a reference.

Any man foregoing additional PSA testing for the possibility of cancer, realizes the anxiety that goes along with the waiting.
When 52 years old I took my first PSA test and it came back at a scant 0.8. However, I had been urinating quite a bit at night, so I went to a urologist to check. And yes, like half the men over 50, it turned out that I had an enlarged prostate. The Urologist ordered Adovert once a day, and low and behold my prostate shrunk down to normal. This took about 2 years on the drug.
I had not seen my Urologist for nearly 5 years. And I went in to my family doctor for routine blood work. My PSA came back at a heafty 2.2! Quite a change from my origianl .8.
But the questioned remained how fast did it rise from year to year. They call that PSA Velocity.
While on Adovert...it reduces a person PSA level by 50%. So over the years I was on the Adovert, my PSA always came back .3 or .5.
My Urologist was thinking about doing a biopsy if my next PSA test came back high again.
So I decided to see if I could bring my prostate back into health by using a number of methods mentioned on this forum.
This is what I did for 3 weeks before my latest PSA test...which came back today at 0.89! Every day for 3 weeks.
1. 1 to 1 Molassses to Baking Soda in 8 oz of water
2. Cayenne Pepper mixed in water .... twice a day...the hotter the cayenne the better.
3. Pomegranate Juice...organic no sugars added 16 oz a day
4. Curcumin - 3 capsules of 1, 200 mg daily
5. Grape Seed Extract and Milk Thistle 1 capsule daily
6. Selenium 1 capsule daily
7. Magnesium and Potassium to help with the baking soda
That's it...except I did take along a bottle of water with a Apple Cider Vinegar and Baking Soda mix and sipped through the day.
Yes...it seems like a lot to do. But, to take charge of my prostate condition...it was of little concern to me.
I will test again...and I will drop a few of the regimens I have been taking. Live more of a Macrobiotic lifestyle.
Contact me anytime, if anyone wants to know more. Thanks and best of health to you!
