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.)
The picture of portalaca olerrcea
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.

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.

I didn't understand the problem that I have had for years and was told by my urologist (???) that I had an enlarged prostate. Luckily, I saw the lemon juice/olive oil remedy for kidney stones online and, with little hope, gave it a try resulting in amazing improvement in urinary pain and a very frequent need to urinate within less than a week.
The problem was beginning to impair my life. I couldn't sleep very long and long drives required frequent stops.
I take roughly 2 oz. of fresh lemon juice with a little olive oil twice a day. The formula has definitely changed my life!

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.
Enlarged Prostate / Prostate Infection
Hi all, I'm 67 yrs. old and hadn't had any issues with my prostate until about 3 months ago, started with slower stream and then some burning then constant urge to void and getting up 5 times a night. I tried saw palmetto, nettle, pygeum, and pumpkin seed oil.No effect! ACV helped a little, then I read about bee pollen, propolis and royal jelly, boron, olive leaf extract and their effect on infections and testosterone, it seems that enlarged prostate is part bacterial and part hormonal.
Anyway, this is what cured me.
- 1,000mgs of bee pollen 1 X day,
- 500mgs propolis X3 extract which is equal to 1500mgs 3X a day,
- 1,000mgs of royal jelly X1 day.
- I then added olive leaf extract 500mgs 3X day
- and for testosterone and estridol balance, the mineral Boron, started at 3mgs and worked my way up to 9mgs for one month.
I then learned that you have to cycle Boron 2 weeks on and 1 week off to prevent your hormones getting out of balance, I've been doing this with no ill effects and you can cut the dosage I'm on 3mgs now. You can take all of these long term as they are all food.
Note: the effects of Boron on testosterone are really amazing. I lost 14 lbs of fat and gained muscle and feel strong.
Hope this helps someone.

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!
Hi my husband has had an enlarged prostate for the past 3 months. It finally got to the stage where he was urinating every 30 minutes with very weak flow. At night he was having to urinate every 30 minutes to an hour. After 3 months he was exhausted and obviously stressed out. He was taking prostate eze (max) alternating with Prostate complex and Prostate Plus. Nothing was helping. 2 weeks ago I decided that enough was enough so I went on the attack. It was either that, medication and/or hospital. He took Ibuprofen for 5 days to reduce the swelling.
On day 5 he took 300mg of Beta Sistosterol, 25mg Zinc, 300mg Q10, Resveratrol, Vit B complex, Alpha Lipoic Acid and 1000mg of Vit. D. in the morning and 1 of the prostate tabs at night. He has done that for the past 2 weeks. The difference is incredible. The Ibuprophen reduced the swelling within 24 hours (it pays to use it very sparingly, long term use is dangerous) while the beta sitosterol increased the flow within 24 hours to what is normal for him. 6 weeks on and he is a totally different man. At 70 years old he is still working as a construction manager, climbing stairs and walking on scaffolding, he swears he hasn't been this well since his 30's. Cheers, marlane ellis. Geelong

4 months ago, I sadly discovered that I have an enlarged prostate. Usual symptoms as everyone else. Up all night peeing. Weak pee stream. I've managed to reduce it probably by 80% in 4 months.
This is how I did it. Firstly, Like everyone else, I did my research. On my condition and on medications, supplements and surgeries. Once I gained all knowledge, I started treating it with supplements.
This consisted of....... Saw palmetto (2 pills 450mg each. Taken morning, noon and night. Curcumin 3 times a day. Lycopene 10mg twice a day..morning and night (with food) L-glutamine powder....one scoop added to a glass of water. Essential Zinc...one pill a day. Apple cider vinegar...two tablespoons per glass of water. ....3 times a day.
This has literally shrunk my prostate. My pee stream is a lot better (85% better) I wake up once now during the night instead of 5 times. My urethra could still be more dilated and am thinking of taking Nitric Oxide for that.
Hope this helps you guys as I know from experience that this condition has also a negative psychological affect.

So sorry, I forgot another important thing that I do for enlarged prostate.
During my research, I discovered a company called “Butt Candy”. Yes, you read that right… lol Basically, they make suppositories that are made with supplements that you put up your butt. They were pretty expensive and I thought, I could make my own. And I did. I thought I should attack my prostate issues from both ends, orally and anally. This is how I do it. Very simple and easy. I use coconut oil (organic only). I use 3 heap tablespoons of coconut oil in a coffee cup. Add the same supplements that I mentioned in my earlier post. All the supplements are either in powder form in capsules or oils, so easy as you just open the capsules and pour into the coconut oil. I also add (which you don't have to do) black seed oil (about 30 drops) And the oil from Lycopene soft gel supplement. I put in the microwave for about 12 seconds till it melts the coconut oil and you mix everything together then I pour it into silicone Ice tray. Not the conventional square shape, but a shape that will be easy to slide up your Butt canal. Mine looks like a kit-Kat stick shape I've tray. Perfect size and shape to slide in. After pouring your solution into the ice tray, place in freezer to set and before bed, slide one in. I believe in combating the problem from both ends. The results have been amazing.
I have been suffering from frequent urination for awile. I know that my prostate is enlarged.This week I started oil pulling with sesame oil. Is that the right oil and are there any other real remedies for this problem? I have tried some other supplements from the health store which have not helped. I also have hypothyroidism

Fresh Onion Juice for Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH)
Onions are a very powerful cure. If you have a juicer, 4 medium size onions are enough. Prepare yourself --- it is not tasty. Prepare yourself --- you will possibly see a significant decrease in symptoms the next morning --- I did.
