BPH, fix this prostate problem

How To Fix Almost Any
Prostate Problem
Without Drugs, Surgery Or
Invasive Exams

I do not endorse products from any sources. However this is an important topic, and I want you to know the facts and have access to a wonderful product, I’m talking about prostate.

I am NOT a urologist, doctor, medical guru or health expert.
I’m just a regular guy like you who once suffered from prostate problems.

However, by doing some intense research, and through much “trial & error” experimentation on my own body (with various natural herbs, foods and supplements) and consulting certain kinds of doctors, I figured out a very simple way to fix my prostate problems in a way that is fast and completely non-invasive.
And, while I cannot guarantee you any specific results (nobody can), I think if you use this natural product consistently for 90 days, like I did, you may find your prostate problems fixed, too, including:
            •No more burning feeling when peeing
            A full night’s sleep without having the constant need to urinate
             •Strong urine flow like you had when you were a teenager
            A completely emptied bladder after using the bathroom
            •No more pain, hesitancy or urgency to urinate
             Prostate-causing pain and discomfort in your testicles, groin, penis, and lower
back may disappear
             •Increase in sex drive
            No more pain during sex or urination
            •And much, much more... (including many OTHER health benefits—like , more energy, better sleep, happiness and more...)

Also, beware:
There are multiple different kinds of prostate problems. Some people have an inflamed prostate (or prostatitis—an infection that can be extremely painful). Some have an enlarged or swollen prostate.
And some have full blown prostate cancer.

My opinion about this Natural Product “SSP3-Forte, Prostate & Virility Formula” can help with the common problems most men suffer from, but will do you no good whatsoever if you have actual prostate cancer. In fact, if you even

Seek Immediate
Medical Attention!

Don’t even screw around!

In fact, SSP3-Forte is NOT a cancer cure in any way, shape or form.
And if you have that condition, get to your doctor - fast.
The same goes for if “SSP3-Forte”doesn’t give you relief. It should not take more than a few weeks (three months—tops) to feel relief from your prostate problems if you follow exactly how is written in the label. But, if it doesn’t, there is very likely something wrong that requires more aggressive treatment.
So get professional help if that is the case.

Also, look for  “SSP3-Forte”, just Google it!

Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) and others enemies of the prostate.

Men over 40 years, prostate under attack

It seems like the prostate is always under attack.
You may not realize it when you're young because
your body naturally fights off the attacks.

But as you age you eventually discover the truth:

Your prostate is in trouble.
So what are the enemies of the prostate?

Enemy # 1: Excess DHT

Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is a naturally-occurring
hormone in the male body.
DHT fuels the growth of male fetuses, but there is
no use for DHT in adult males.
The most common side effects of excess DHT are
premature hair loss... and... an enlarged

Enemy # 2: Excess estrogen

Estrogen is normally associated with women, but
the hormone occurs naturally in men, too.
But problems start to occur when your body
produces too much estrogen.
Side effects include decreased sex drive, "man
boobs," weight gain, and prostate problems.

Enemy # 3: Diet

Did you know some foods actually mimic the effects
of estrogen in the body?
This is because because they contain

Foods that contain phytoestrogens include soy,
pumpkin, yams, and fennel.

Worse, many meat and dairy products contain
artificial estrogen. And even soaps and shampoos
contain parabens, which are also phytoestrogens.

Here's the bottom line:

There are many "enemies of the prostate" that
could be negatively affecting you.

If left unchecked, these enemies can really do a
number on your prostate.

As the saying goes, the best offense is a good

Here's the defense that is helpping many men:
The best food supplement to support your prostate and virility.
SSP3-Forte is an European natural product In the market since 1995, with a great success in treat BPH.

What you must know about prostate problems.

If you are a man, take care of your prostate.
An unhealthy prostate may lead you to impotence, incontinence and maybe even death!

What You Must Know
About Treatments for Prostate Problems that your Doctor Will Not Tell You!

All of us men live with a potential problem every day of our lives. The cause for that problem is our prostate gland, a small walnut-shaped organ that is responsible for producing the liquid part of the semen. The problem is that the prostate is in a very sensitive place in our body - around the urethra, at the base of the bladder. The result is that even a very simple thing like minor inflammation (prostatitis) can interfere with our normal urinary and sexual functions.
Prostate problems are a reality of life for most men - literally hitting us where it hurts. Almost all men will have to deal with small inflammations or infections in the prostate at least once in their life. When aged 80 or more, most men are likely to suffer from prostate hypertrophy or worse. The yearly government and private expenditure on prostate cancer treatments is considerably high. However, almost nothing is being done by medical "experts" to modify these frightening statistics. Is there any interest in maintaining such high costs?
The symptoms of the most serious problems of the prostate can be painful and debilitating, affecting pride, sexual performance and even fertility. To make matters worse, most men do not really know what is the prostate and how it works, being incapable of making the smart decision after hearing the two most feared words by men: “prostate problems”.  They run blindly to the nearest urologist and beg for cure. Any cure. Too often, the "cure" suggested is the unnecessary surgeries, the unnecessary hormonal treatments (with synthetic drugs, which often have many unpleasant side effects), or the unnecessary radiation therapies (which may cause even bigger problems).
Thousands of men over the age of 60 will be diagnosed as having Bening Prostate Hyperplasia (HPB) this year alone! A study in the United States found that 75 percent of us suffer from this condition in a way after age 50. And according to the National Institute for Aging, these numbers can reach 90 percent for men over seventy.
When it comes to prostate cancer, the numbers are even more frightening. For example, in the USA, prostate cancer is the #1 cancer, causing approximately 40,000 deaths per year. According to the American Medical Association, 1 in every 10 men can expect to have prostate cancer during his lifetime. In fact, according to some projections, 25 percent of all men in their late thirties have already a small number cancerous cells in the prostate, a number that increases to 80 percent in men over 80 years.
Every year, fear - of incontinence, impotence, or infertility - sends hundreds of thousands of men running to the doctor at the first signs of prostate problems.
This doesn’t have to happen to you! Before you access a conventional procedure that can drastically decrease your quality of life, let me tell you that you have safer and less aggressive options.

Western medicine does not have all the solutions
Natural therapies have been used by other parts of the world for thousands of years to successfully deal with all kinds of health problems, including prostate problems. However, most Western doctors ignore this huge body of knowledge because it is not taught in their medical schools. The result is that they misunderstand these proven medical practices that focus on prevention, which treats the whole person - both body and spirit - and produce results
That's what Complementary Medicine is all about - to have a general understanding of natural, non-toxic and quite effective nutritional therapies and avoid the use of risky interventions (biopsies and surgeries) until they prove absolutely necessary.

The Complementary Medicine – the theory and the practice
As a theory, Complementary Medicine states that every healing art that is valid should be used together to create or recreate optimal health.
When suggesting a treatment plan, Complementary Medicine is more concerned with the identification of the probable reasons for the disease (which varies from person to person) than with the name of a diagnosis. It is this personalized care for the patients that establishes the main difference between Complementary Medicine and Conventional Medicine (being the latter the one that is most practiced and best known). In Complementary Medicine, no two patients are treated in exactly the same way and, yet, most of them get better.
Demand the right treatment!
This book will show you the methods and tools of Complementary Medicine to control BPH and prostate cancer - without using invasive and destructive methods such as surgery, toxic radiation or medication. But remember, this is not a project you can carry out on your own. The treatment is tailored to the specific needs of each individual and has to be carefully controlled by a trained physician - the right doctor. If your doctor does not - or is not able - to do it for you, you will have to keep looking until you find someone who does.

Prostate cancer - a diagnosis that may be even more dangerous than the disease itself
There is uncertainty about whether prostate cancer should be diagnosed or treated. Although thousands of men suffering from prostate cancer die every year, most die from other causes, long before cancer becomes a serious problem. Prostate cancer progresses so slowly and produces so few symptoms that many men who have it don’t even know it. They continue to lead active and productive lives - unless they are diagnosed and then persuaded to undergo a radical procedure that will change their lives.
Those who argue against surgery (except in extreme cases) advocate what medical professionals call a "watchful waiting." They believe that once you are diagnosed prostate cancer, your doctor should "monitor" progress without prescribing any treatment or medications. In fact, studies (1) have shown over and over that men who are not subjected to any treatment will live for as long as (or even more than) those who choose to undergo surgery – and also do not have to live with the embarrassing side effects.

The worst you can do is nothing
A "watchful waiting" may be a better alternative than an operation on the prostate. But that's not saying much!
I disagree at all with the theory of "watchful waiting." I think it's ridiculous to wait for the tumors to grow when there are simple and highly effective ways to relieve - and even eliminate - symptoms and thus to greatly reduce discomfort. That is the reason for the existence of this book.
Conventional doctors say there is nothing you can do to avoid prostate problems (which is not true). Therefore, they focus on treating symptoms and nothing more (probably they do not even know what more to do). They do not go to the cause of those symptoms, to the cause of the problem. There is much that can be done to prevent, treat and even cure prostate problems through Nutrition Medicine.
Now, I would like to tell you that you can control the health of your prostate.

The best part of this program is that you do not have to wait until you have symptoms to benefit from it. It teaches you how to prevent disease before it begins - and how to treat your whole being, not only the symptoms of a hypertrophied prostate or prostate cancer. When you follow the program, you will become more vigorous, physically capable and free of tension. You will also be at less risk of becoming a victim of other debilitating diseases, including other cancers, heart disease and strokes.

The Eight-Step Program (Chapter 6) for Complete Prostate Health includes the best and most effective treatments practiced over the centuries by cultures around the world. But before we begin to share the details of this Eight-Step Program with you, I'd like to give you some background information on the prostate in general, what it is, and how it works.


Although the prostate’s function continues to be a mystery to most men, you probably have at least a vague idea that your ability to function sexually, your urinary competence, and your ability to procreate all depend on this organ. However, because it is so small, you may find it difficult to believe that it plays such an important role in your physical and psychic life - and that it is the cause of so many misunderstandings and displeasures.
Having the size of a walnut and weighing only 18 to 20 grams, your prostate consists of a network of tiny glands arranged in lobes, muscles, blood vessels and connective tissue, all surrounded by a fibrous shell called capsule. It lies between the bladder and the base of the penis, surrounding the urethra like a necklace. Because of this position, the urine carried by the urethra passes through the prostate medium on the way to the outside of the body. The part of the urethra that crosses the prostate (like the center of an apple) is called the prostatic urethra.
From the moment you are born (when you are the size of a pea) to adolescence. the prostate does not change much. Growth is very gradual. But during adolescence, when the body begins to secrete Testosterone, the prostate has a dramatic growth spurt. In just six to twelve months, it increases almost to double the size. After that, the growth of the prostate slows down. From the age of thirty-one until the age of 45 or 50, the prostate is about the same size.

It is quite common (but not normal) for the prostate to begin to grow again in size later in life, slowly starting to grow larger towards the walls of the prostatic urethra, blocking the flow of urine. This condition is called hyperplasia, or benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH), and can become serious if left untreated. (I'll talk about BPH in more detail later).

The connection to sexuality
The small glands of the prostate produce a liquid that carries the semen out of the body when ejaculated. This liquid feeds the semen with enzymes, with zinc, citric acid, amino acids and fructose, all necessary for the health and protection of sperm. It is injected into the urethra the instant the sperm passes from the testicles to the urethra. These two liquids, plus another from the seminal vesicle, join together in the urethra and form the fluid that is ejaculated when one has an orgasm.
The scientific community has still a lot to learn about the prostate’s purpose in our body, but the main function seems to be more reproductive than urinary. A recent theory holds that prostaglandins in the fluid produced by the prostate can cause a woman's cervix (the opening to the uterus) to dilate so that the sperm can easily pass into the uterus and fertilize the ovum. If this is true, it may explain why in some cases removal of the prostate causes infertility in man.

The connection to Testosterone
Testosterone is a natural hormonal substance of youth produced by the testicles and adrenal glands. Among several things, it helps promote long bones and muscles - and healthy sexual desire. However, Testosterone may be decomposed to Dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a problematic steroid thought to be responsible for the development of BPH and possibly cancer in adult males.
The conversion of testosterone into DHT is controlled by 5-alpha reductase, an enzyme that increases as one ages and also by other causes. If this action is blocked, one can reduce DHT levels in the body - and avoid or even regress prostate hypertrophy. This is one of the biggest factors in the diet program to treat prostate diseases. Therefore, the problem is the control of DHT production and not of Testosterone.

The importance of regular physical exams
All men know - and fear - the symptoms of prostate diseases:
• A frequent urge to urinate - especially at night.
• Dripping
• Pain or burning sensation when you urinate.
• Poor urine flow, or difficulties in starting or stopping urinary flow.
• Weak erections or occasional impotence, pain during intercourse
• Inability to empty the bladder completely

These symptoms, which indicate urine retention, can have several consequences, including bladder distention, loss of flexibility, and renal failure. However, your doctor may detect problems even before any symptoms appear. This is why it is strongly recommended that urological examinations be performed as soon as some of these symptoms begin to appear.
During the prostate examination, your doctor checks the size and condition of the prostate by taking a digital rectal exam or by using sound waves (trans-rectal ultrasound) to produce a visual image of the gland. It can also be examined with an instrument called a cytoscope. Other instruments for diagnosis include a flow study and a residual urine test, during which a catheter is introduced into the urethra after urination to see if urine residues have left inside.

Doctors can use one or all of these techniques to make a diagnosis.
Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) blood test allows the early detection of prostate cancer by measuring the amount of a certain "cancer marker" (which in this case is an antigen) excreted to the blood by the prostate cells; this excretion is made in considerably larger amounts when the cells are cancerous.
PSA readings increase for both BPH and prostate cancer although a sudden increase may be an indicator of cancer. In addition, there is a bound PSA test that indicates whether the tumor has progressed beyond the prostate gland. The results are explained with the aid of other diagnostic tools (such as ultrasound) and this combination of measurements is used throughout of the therapy administered to the patient. It is a safe way to measure the disease and the progress of the disease, and to verify if the treatment is being effective.
So, if you have any of the symptoms described above, measure your PSA regularly (Total and Free). Do not be fooled by the orthodox medicine line of conduct that has decided that PSA measurements are a waste of time - and money. The reasoning that patients to whom the disease is detected early do not live longer than those to whom the disease is later detected, is only true for patients who have been treated with conventional protocols.
You should take your first exam as early as you accomplish the age of fifty-one years - earlier if you have a family history of prostate cancer or symptoms. If the results are less than 2.5 ng / ml blood, you can wait three years to repeat it. If it is more than 2.5 ng / ml, repeat it within one year. If the measurement is more than 3.0 ng / mL, an ultrasound should be done to obtain an approximate measurement of the gland size and to detect irregularities in the gland structure.
PSA density (PSAD) - a percentage calculated by dividing the PSA results by the estimated gland weight (information calculated by ultrasound equipment) - indicates malignancy with almost certainty if it is more than 0.5. If it is less than 0.12, it is unlikely to be malignant. The intermediate values represent the "gray zone", which requires a new assessment within six to twelve months.
If your PSAD is slightly elevated, your doctor may want to do a biopsy. It may be helpful, but a negative result does not rule out the possibility of cancer if the PSAD is high. If your PSAD is too high (more than 15), there is a chance that the cancer has spread to the bone and you should start a complete program right away.
It is also necessary to take into account the proportion between Free PSA and Total PSA. Free PSA should be greater than 25%. If it is inferior, it is advisable to perform a biopsy, even if the Total PSA is within the range I mentioned earlier, because a carcinoma is suspected.
PSA velocity: another PSA assessment factor not to be overlooked. You can rest easy if the growth rate is between 0.2 and 0.4 ng / ml per year and the PSA value is between 1 and 4 ng / ml. Or less than 0.75 ng / ml per year if your PSA is greater than 4 ng / ml.



When you are a teenager, you may painfully become aware of your prostate when you have the first attack of prostatitis, a very common and easily treated prostate gland inflammation that can be caused by infections, congestion, irritation, or a combination of the three things. According to a study conducted by the National Health Center for Health Statistics (1), 20% to 25% of all visits to the urologist are due to a prostatitis. The symptoms of this condition include more frequent and painful urination and a hesitant urinary flow.
Acute prostatitis is caused by microorganisms or bacteria that invade the prostate. Many of these infections are caused by bacteria that pass through the blood are caused by poor personal hygiene (especially in uncircumcised men). Another common cause of prostatitis (such as fungal prostatitis or gonorrhea prostatitis) is sexual contact with someone who has a vaginal infection - another reason to use condoms. On the other hand, the cause of non-infectious prostatitis is not known.
In addition to prostatitis, another common prostate problem is hypertrophy, also known as Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH). According to statistics (in the US), BPH appears in more than 50% of men over 50, in more than 75% of men over 80 and in 90% of men over 90 years. In most of these cases, the symptoms are not serious and can be successfully treated without drugs - sometimes even without seeing a doctor.
Is there a reason for existing more than 300,000 cases of BPH per year only in the USA?
Is there a reason for hundreds of thousand middle age men to have to be overwhelmed with impotence, infertility and incontinence?
The answer is No!

Possible causes and risk factors

No one knows exactly why or how BPH appears, though we do know that hormonal changes (a consequence of lifestyle and eating habits that each of us have) are a contributing factor. BPH is also often due to the taking of certain drugs. One theory blames estrogen, the female hormone that is produced in small amounts along with testosterone by the testicles. As you get older, your testosterone level decreases - possibly causing increased levels of estrogen and BPH. On the other hand, there are those who believe that BPH is caused by too much Testosterone accumulation (not all experts agree since, if so, any young man at puberty would have BPH because of the high testosterone levels that occur during this period). Once it enters the prostate, Testosterone is converted to Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) by the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase. It has been found that this potent compound can cause an excessive multiplication of the cells, which may eventually give rise to a hypertrophied (enlarged) prostate.
In the beginning, BPH may not cause any problems. Many men live in their fifties or sixties with very few symptoms - as long as prostate growth tends to be outwardly, or mainly outward, in the opposite direction to that of the prostatic urethra. The problem appears when growth spreads inward. When this happens, the prostate presses against the urethral canal, which interferes with urination. The problems thus caused can range from boring to serious. They include a more frequent urge to urinate (especially at night), a weaker urine flow, hesitant urination, dribbling, burning or discomfort during urination, inability to urinate, traces of blood in the urine or in the semen.
Scientists have not yet been able to indicate which groups are at risk for BPH, although there are indications of some risk factors associated with BPH. If you are over 50 and take medications for hypertension, diuretics, tranquilizers, antihistamines or flu medicines, there are indications of increased risk. In addition, alkaline urine, tuberculosis and a history of bladder and kidney infections have also been linked to an increased risk of BPH.
When the growth of the prostate presses against the walls of the urethra in a way that worryingly decreases urinary flow, the problem becomes serious. This condition is called obstructive uropathy. At this point, the bladder is not able to completely empty. The urine that stays in the bladder can therefore give rise to infections which affect the immune system and exacerbate the existing problem. Continued urinary obstruction may eventually lead to kidney failure, bladder infections, or kidney stones.

How do you know if you have BPH?

The most obvious symptom of BPH is problems with urinary flow. You may have prostatitis or BPH (enlarged prostate) if you have any of these complications:
1. You can’t sleep well because you are always waking up to go urinate
2. You have difficulty in urinating, having pain and a burning feeling
3. Your sexual performance is poor
4. You have occasional impotence and / or weak erections

If you go to a urologist with any of these symptoms, they will probably do one of the following tests:

-> Digital rectal examination (DRE). It is a routine test to diagnose prostate cancer. However, it is also used to determine if there are problems with the rectum. Since the rectum is placed just behind the prostate gland, doctors can easily explore the gland by inserting a finger into the rectum and probing for abnormalities.

-> Ultrasound. A trans-rectal ultrasound of the prostate (TRUS-P) is used to get a complete picture of the prostate gland. The images are projected onto a computer screen as sound waves pass through the prostate. The result is visual evidence of hypertrophy or tumor.

Surgery is almost never the solution

BPH may be painful, but it is well known that the symptoms in men even with obstructive BPH vary over time, possibly improving spontaneously. Often, the condition can be successfully managed only by medical supervision – without any medication or invasive surgery. The program of treatments can be adapted to the individual needs of each one.  Do not be afraid to ask your doctor questions - and do not let him persuade you to do unnecessary operations. If possible, always consult more than one doctor, to have the correct diagnosis and no doubt.

In some cases, it is necessary to operate patients with BPH. There is a specific indication for surgery: complete or near complete obstruction of the urinary stream. If urinary retention is not treated immediately, it can lead to major medical complications. As said above, continuous urinary obstruction can give rise to bladder, kidney and kidney infections permanently. So when you stop urinating or urination causes great pain, surgery to remove the obstruction is the main form of therapy.
Do not be discouraged if this situation applies to you, or if you have already had surgery. The Eight-Step Program (Chapter 6) can help you maintain your prostate health and prevent you from needing any further medical interventions. It is also great for relieving the side effects of an operation that has already been done.
Nowadays, transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) is a large part of the operations performed per year. This surgical operation removes parts of the prostate through an incision made inside the urethra. The problem is that it definitely does not solve BPH.
About 20% of men who undergo this operation will be forced to do it a second time and 10% become impotent, according to statistics compiled in the United States. Many others end up with problems in erectile function and urinary incontinence due to this surgery.


When cancer appears in the prostate, doctors usually diagnose it as "primary cancer," meaning it has not spread to other parts of the body. It starts in the prostate and stays in the prostate. HBP does not mean that you will have cancer of prostate cancer. There is no evidence of any kind that the two diseases are related.
Prostate cancer is one of the least understood forms of cancer because we do not really know what causes it. What we do know is that cancer prostate cancer appears mainly in older men. Slightly more than 80 percent of these cancerous problems are in men over 65; by the age of 80, about 80 percent of men have some form of prostate cancer. Often these cancers remain inactive for years before symptoms are noticed - and many men may never develop symptoms. Despite this, statistics show that about 10 percent of men will develop prostate cancer at some point in their lives.

It's never too late to take care of your own health.

The Eight-Step Program presented in Chapter 6 is designed to help prevent you from becoming one of these statistics. But even if you have already been diagnosed as having cancer at an early stage, this program can help you. We are not telling you to stop visiting your urologist or general practitioner; instead we ask you to tell your urologist/medic how these recommendations can be inserted into your treatment regimen. When you do, you will see that you have more options than you thought.
The simple lifestyle changes outlined later in this book can greatly reduce or even eliminate any symptoms that are already present. And if it's an advanced case that needs a standard form of treatment, this program can help you ease the pain and improve the treatment effect.
PSA – a controversial cancer test

If you have prostate problems, your doctor probably will want to use prostate-specific antigen (PSA) to determine if your problems are due to cancer - most doctors do. This blood test measures the level of a protein that is only found in the prostate. If the test results in a high level of Total PSA (and low free PSA, bottom 25%), a carcinoma is suspected.
We have to tell you that recently the PSA test has been attacked. The problem is that it can give positive results when there is no cancer or negative results when there is. So, according to a recent article in the Health magazine, many researchers and some american physicians now find that "the results of PSA ... represent an unsophisticated instrument and may give rise to an operation that may unnecessarily ruin more than arrange."
Should you agree to take the PSA test?

So what do you do if your doctor wants to use PSA in your case? This is a tough problem. For men who have pain and other symptoms - men who may be in terminal stages of cancer - testing may be necessary. But if you are in the early stages of cancer that is confined to the prostate gland, it may be better without it.
Positive PSA results may encourage your doctor to persuade you to undergo surgery and to undergo other radical procedures that are simply not needed if your tumor is small or limited to the prostate. As Health magazine says, "This is why the National Cancer Institute does not sanction the PSA tests ... This is not like cutting your hair. It's a blood test about which men should know something before they do."
The best your doctor can do for your prostate problems is nothing. You, on the other hand, must realize that there is much you can do right now to drastically reduce your symptoms - and even eliminate them at all. In most cases, prostate cancer can be controlled with proper diet, exercise and natural therapies - the pillars of the Eight-Step Program we provide you (Chapter 6). But before you get into the details of this program, you have to realize how prostate cancer develops.
Prostate cancer staging

Staging of prostate cancer is the process by which doctors rate the malignant potential of prostate cancer.
Nowadays, the most used system of stages of prostate cancer is the TNM system. In the TNM system, stages of prostate cancer are described using three different parameters of cancer growth and spread:
T - for tumor - describes the size of the main area of prostate cancer.
N - for lymph nodes - describes whether prostate cancer has spread to any lymph node and to what extent.
M - for metastasis - means distant spread of prostate cancer, for example, to the bones or liver.
According to these parameters, the TNM system will classify the cancer in 4 stages: I, II, III and IV.

Stage I cancer is usually only found when a biopsy is done for what is thought to be BPH. A Stage I tumor is usually limited to the prostate gland. It has not spread to any other part of the body, making it relatively passive. Stage I cancer rarely produces symptoms and cannot be detected with a rectal exam or a blood test. It usually goes unnoticed.
Some doctors hope to get a test that will detect cancer in this stage - but we truly hope they will not: if doctors could detect prostate cancer this early, it would only lead to more fear, more unhappiness, and more unnecessary surgery on younger men who would otherwise have normal lives.
Stage II prostate cancer is also confined to the prostate. It appears on palpation as a rigid nodule and thus is detectable with a digital rectal examination. If the tumor involves more than half of a lobe of the prostate without involving both lobes, the cancer is classified as stage II-a. If the tumor involves both lobes it will be classified as stage II-b. The symptoms are the same as for BPH - a frequent and urgent need to urinate and an interrupted or reduced flow - but sometimes there are no symptoms.
Twenty to thirty percent of men diagnosed with prostate cancer fall into the category of stage II prostate cancer. If you are one of them, we strongly urge you not to let your doctor convince you to do radical treatments. First tell him about the Eight-Step Program. If he continues to bombard you, find another doctor - or at least get a second opinion or even a third opinion. Find a doctor who is qualified to suggest natural methods that apply to the whole body - a method that is far, far more effective in the long run than the philosophy of surgery-and-drugs philosophy - the only philosophy for too many conventional doctors (urologists).
Stage III prostate cancer is larger and is no longer limited to the prostate. In general, this means that the tumor has already spread to the seminal bags. This state is easily detected with a rectal examination. The tumor is hard and feels like it has spread behind the base of the prostate and over the testicles. Symptoms may be similar to those of stage II cancer, but are usually more pronounced - and can be painful.
It is important to remember that prostate cancer grows slowly. Although hormonal and radiation-based therapy is often suggested for stage C prostate cancer, it does not produce as many benefits as alternative or complementary treatments. Alternative medicine incorporates medicinal plants and natural ways to boost your own immunity to prevent tumors from spreading. This is where Ayurvedic Medicine, Nutritional Medicine, Homeopathy and Acupuncture can play an important role in controlling the disease.
Stage IV prostate cancer is the worst case, having already spread beyond the prostate to other parts of the body. Symptoms stage IV prostate cancer include serious problems during urination, weight loss, and bone pain in the lower back, pelvis, and upper thigh. It is not possible to cure stage IV prostate cancer – but it can be managed without surgery.

(normally suggested by urologists)

It is important that you know the facts about all kinds of prostate cancer treatment that exist - conventional and alternative/complementary - so you can make an informed and intelligent decision. In this chapter, an extensive list of options for treatment to recover and maintain a healthy prostate is presented. Before making big decisions, make sure that you take all methods into account. Take the time to discuss them with your doctor and do even more research on the methods you think might be appropriate for you. Do not allow yourself to be rushed and pushed to choose a drastic and conventional method before taking into consideration other alternative options. While in some cases an operation may be required, in most cases it is not.
Standard prostate cancer treatment is based on the assumption that the cancer starts with a localized tumor that eventually spreads through the body. Based on this assumption, conventional treatment has concentrated on eliminating the tumor by cutting it off, burning/freezing it or even flooding it with dangerous chemicals/drugs.

Nowadays, the standard treatments of cancer in all forms are radiation that are often suggested therapy or chemotherapy. These two treatments are instigated by conventional medical doctors as completely infallible, even though they know they can cause a debilitating death for the patient, not to mention the terrible collateral damage such as irreversible early destruction of the immune system, hair loss, vomiting, etc. Most of the time these therapies can prevent the immune system from being as it once was, leaving the patient with very few defenses. When this happens, disease spreads like wildfire in a forest.
Fortunately, few doctors are tempted to use chemotherapy for prostate cancer simply because prostate cancer, in particular, does not respond to this form of immuno-repressive barbarism. Radiation therapy, however, is presented as one of two great options for patients suffering from prostate cancer. In addition to affecting the immune system, irradiation of the prostate can damage the adjacent healthy tissue, often causing radioactive colitis or proctitis, which can be permanent. The other option is surgery, a radical prostatectomy, that is, cutting of the prostate.
The surgical removal of the prostate gland can have as permanent effects impotence and/or incontinence. According to a recent Harris study, 75 percent of the men who underwent the operation "suffered after from impotence." Official statistics admit that 40 to 50 percent suffer from impotence and 10 to 20 percent suffer from incontinence (1). At best, it is a drastic surgery with a long and painful convalescence time.
But the worst aspect of these two methods, which are the only two options offered by 99 percent of urologists, is that they often fail.
A study of the results obtained at UCLA Medical Center, known by its high-quality urology department, demonstrated a recurrence rate (measured by increasing PSA levels) in 31% of treated patients after five years and in 52 percent after 10 years. (1)
Another study was done in a group of men, mostly older than 70 years (whose results were published in the Journal of the American Medical Association). It was shown that people who have not undergone any of these therapies have done equally well. Hence the idea was created that men with the prostate cancer had a third option: a watchful waiting - doing nothing.
If the only options were actually radiation and surgery, you might have begun to think that a guarded wait was better than these miserable therapies of orthodox medicine. But because there are so many effective, safe and non-risky alternative treatments, it can be said that a watchful waiting is the height of madness.



The conventional physician's prescription
(the majority of the physicians we know)

There are not many options for treating prostate cancer with conventional/western medicine. The choices depend on how much the disease has progressed and yet the treatments are very similar and involve great risks and consequences.
For stage A prostate cancer, all that is done in general is to cause a complete hormone blockage to try to obtain a complete remission – the so-called combination of hormone therapy (CHT). This administration of hormones basically results in castration.

For stage B cancer, here are some options for treating patients:
=> Radical prostatectomy is a major surgical operation during which the entire prostate and surrounding tissue are removed. There are several consequences that result from this operation, however it is not a safe cure because the true cause of cancer is not addressed. Doctors have to be absolutely certain that the disease is limited to the prostate; if not, will continue to spread even after the operation.
=> Radiation therapy is often used after residual cancer is found on the margins of the tissue that was removed during a radical prostatectomy. An external ray is thus used to destroy normal tissue, with no guarantee that it will destroy malignant cells. Radiation therapy also has several serious consequences and prolonged effects.
=> Brachytherapy is a form of internal radiation therapy. During this method, radioactive seeds are placed in the prostate to destroy the malignant tissue. It is essential to put the seeds well to ensure that the operation is effective. Again, the consequences of radiation have to be taken into account.
=> Cryosurgery ablation is a therapy that results in the destruction of the prostate and surrounding areas by freezing. The operation consists of introducing three to five probes into the gland. Liquid nitrogen circulating at negative temperatures within the probes freezes the malignant tumor(s) and surrounding tissue.
=> Microwave induced hyperthermia is exactly the opposite of cryosurgical ablation. This operation consists in exposing the malignant cells to temperatures above normal body temperature. It is still at an experimental stage and to be investigated by the medical community.

=> Hyperthermia caused by laser, another operation under investigation, consists of the use of laser fibers that bend at 180º to create areas of hyperthermia.
=> Laser fulguration of the prostate is another treatment under study. A right angle laser fiber has recently been produced that allows deeper penetration of the laser beam into the prostate gland.
For prostate cancer in stage C, complete hormonal blockade is generally effective in reducing tumor size so that it can be treated as a disease in stage B. If it does not work, doctors resort to even more dangerous treatments such as cryosurgical ablation.
Although cancer in the D stage can’t be cured, doctors continue to try to eliminate the disease with prolonged or indefinite hormone therapy or with chemotherapy.
None of these treatments gives any guarantee and all have very serious side effects. The conventional treatment for prostate cancer in the D1 stage consists of unlimited combined hormone therapy for a complete hormonal blockade. This also has many side effects.
If you suffer from BPH, conventional medicine does not give you much choice. Normal treatment is a horrible operation called "transurethral resection of the prostate" (TURP).
Let me tell you what it is so you can know why you should avoid it until you have tried all the options offered by Complementary and Nutritional Medicine (Chapter 4).
Instruments that cut tissue are introduced through the urethra above until reaching the prostate. Once there, the hypertrophied areas of the prostate are cut off. The idea of cutting an organ, bloody slice by bloody slice, always horrified me. Patients who have gone through this clearly know that the post-operative period is also not a "picnic." There is a tendency to bleed and lose fluids; postoperative infections are likely to appear. You may be surprised to learn that, according to several studies, life expectancy declines - largely due to an increase in cardiac mortality.
Some long-term side effects may be urinary incontinence and permanent impotence. But most post-TURP patients suffer from "reverse ejaculation" (the semen goes in and not out). This certainly affects male fertility. And 70% of those who suffer from reverse ejaculation also suffer from decreased or change in intensity of orgasm.

The robotic surgery
Nowadays, the most recent procedure by doctors is ROBOTIC surgery ... it is the new "star". But Prostate Robotic Surgery can put a patient's health at risk.
Dear reader, robotic surgery looks and sounds like one of those miracles of modern medicine. A robot doing the surgery. What could go wrong with that? After all, robots are perfect, do not tremble, do not hesitate and are accurate, right? Mistakes should not happen. You shall not have to worry about a scalpel or a tremor in your doctor's hand. Well, unfortunately, things have gone terribly wrong with these robots…
Many who thought they were just beginning routine procedures ended up with ripped organs, torn blood vessels and damaged muscles. Some will even need colostomy bags for the rest of their lives. So if you are considering having any surgical procedure and your doctor says you want to use the da Vinci robot, here are some important things you need to know now, before it's too late. Destruction is expected to happen.
Dr. Richard Ablin, a professor of Immunobiology and Pathology at the University of Arizona Medical School, calls robotic surgery "a train that is ready to get off the rails." In fact, it looks like it has already been "derailing". Dr. Ablin says that when the da Vinci robot was approved for prostate surgery, there were no actual studies to evaluate its safety or efficacy. All that was needed and experienced was a pig bladder being removed with the device.
But the da Vinci robot is more than just putting men at risk, who need prostate surgery. It has been used for all types of operations, including hysterectomies, gallbladder and renal surgery.
Now, just because it's called a "robot" does not mean a doctor is not necessary. The surgeon looks at the camera that shows a three-dimensional image of where it is operating. He then manipulates tiny instruments and the computer on which the robot translates this into "hand" movements.

  You can see that this does not just require a skilled surgeon, but one who knows how to make the robot do exactly what it wants ... That's a big part of the problem. It takes many, many hours of training.
When the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the da Vinci robot in 2000, he said doctors needed to have "extensive" training in how to use it. So intuitively the company that sells the Da Vinci robot, a 3-day hands-on training session with the robot (as if that were enough for the surgeon to gain sufficient experience before operating a person). But in 2002, this workout was magically replaced by an online questionnaire of 10 questions and only one day of practice. Thus, they saved doctors' training costs with robots. It seems that the training idea was too “extensive”, making it difficult sell these robots in hospitals.
The documents also show that instead of doctors, it was often the da Vinci sales team who was doing the "training." An email from a sales manager in 2011 asked the other vendors for the surgeons to use the robot and not let "security or accreditation get in our way." And ... wait until you hear this: salespeople often went directly to the operating room to give doctors advice! And to think that your doctor, someone who spent years and years learning the profession, should be advised - during the actual surgery - by the commercial representatives of the Vinci, is unbelievable.

But this only came to the fore because of the tragedy that the Taylor family suffered. Fred Taylor was told that prostate surgery would be less painful, safer and he would have a faster recovery because of the da Vinci robot. Instead, Fred, who was 67 and a very active man, ended up incontinent, using a colostomy bag, and suffering from septicemia. He later had a stroke. After Fred died, his wife decided to go to court ... She's not the only one. There is a whole list of lawsuits against this company and its robot. Still, this does not change the fact that there are thousands of these robots doing thousands of surgeries all over the world with doctors operating with them while are still trying to figure out how they actually work using you or a loved one as a guinea pig.
Simply put, if you do not agree to let a member of the da Vinci sales team operate on you, just say "No!" when the doctor suggests robotic surgery. Or better yet, start taking care of your prostate today by taking the alternative methods and avoid horrifying scenarios like being operated by a robot; there are actually lots of alternative and effective paths (about which you can learn by reading this book) you can take before you surrending yourself to operation. But if you really, really, must have surgery, think about refusing the robot and look for an EXCELLENT surgeon.
Think for a moment about the rest of your life if you are not in the symptom-free group! But these concerns do not have to concern you. Because, using the Natural Alternative Method, a hypertrophied prostate can almost always be managed without surgery.

(often known as natural treatments)

Alternative or complementary treatment of cancer is based on the premise that the immune system has the ability to destroy cancer cells and prevent them from spreading. But when the immune system fails because it is weakened due to the free radicals and stress inducers with which the body is bombarded every day, it is no longer able to fight off the cancer cells which allows them to progress until they form a tumor. Alternative or complementary treatment focuses on rejuvenating the immune system, giving the body the boost it needs to heal itself. It strengthens the body to be able to fight the disease with full power, unlike conventional medicine that seeks to weaken the disease instead; the problem with the latter is that, almost always, it also weakens the body in this process.
The basis of the alternative program against cancer
The method is based on several principles that allow people with cancer at an advanced stage, to live complete and happy lives. The program's background is defined by the following precepts and nutrition support:
· A less emphasis on the importance of the tumor itself. We do not know what causes cancer, but we know that the disease is not limited to the tumor itself. In fact, the cancer disease is by definition an internal imbalance that leads to uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells. Therefore, decreasing or destroying malignant growth does not eliminate the disease. In fact, you will not have the slightest hope of curing the disease if it does not restore the body's ability to control the growth of abnormal cells.
If the tumor slows down because of the action of the body's defense system, great - but the destruction of the tumor at any price is useless. Killing healthy tissues or weakening the body's defenses to lessen a tumor is of no use at all.

· The power of the immune system.  The conventional treatment of cancer is probably the only example in the glorious history of conventional medicine in which 100% of the treatment is dedicated to destroying the disease and no effort is made to strengthen the person who has the disease. Therefore, all conventional/standard treatments mutilate or destroy the immune system. Boosting the immune system is essential to restore the body's ability to tame abnormal cells. This prevents pre-malignant changes from turning into tumors.
Taking pancreatic extracts virtually all the time is also crucial. Cancer cells appear to surround themselves with a protective shield that makes them invulnerable to destruction by the immune system. But apparently the pancreatic enzymes deactivate this barrier.
· Diet. Many diets seem to fight cancer - macrobiotics, wheat diets, the Gerson diet, etc. - and many have been quite successful in individual cases. In general, these diets are without sugar (and without most of the starchy carbohydrates) and mainly include fresh and organically produced raw vegetables. The diet reasoning is based on the work of Otto Warburg, Director of the Max Planck Institute for Cell Physiology in Germany, a two-time Nobel Prize winner, who has shown that cancerous tumors need glucose and that plants are full of enzymes and phyto-nutrients which have remarkable anticancer properties. We also emphasize the importance of wild-caught/hunted meat, fish and poultry (which do not have chemical additives or hormonal substances) to provide the protein needed to boost the immune system.
"We are what we eat."
What you eat (your diet) may reduce or increase the risk of cancerous disease in the prostate.
A new review on average daily diet has assessed whether some dietary modifications have a beneficial effect on prostate cancer prevention. The results suggest that a diet rich in fruits (especially the red colored ones) and vegetables is beneficial in the prevention and treatment of cancer.
The researchers conducted an evidence-based analysis of dietary recommendations for the prevention and also treatment of prostate cancer.
Consumption of tomatoes, cauliflower, broccoli, green tea and vitamins and minerals such vitamin E, Selenium and Zinc seems to lead to a decreased risk of cancer of the prostate.
However, the consumption of highly processed or overcooked meats (for example, barbecue charred meat) seems to be related with prostate cancer.
 · The increasing importance of antioxidants.  Damage caused to cells by oxidation due to free radical molecules can give rise to cancer. To protect against such damage, prostate cancer patients should consume the full set of antioxidants - the same antioxidants for patients with BPH, but at much higher doses.
· The power of positive thinking. Diseases worsen or improve depending on your state of mind. It’s a fact. To be horribly ill-disposed by radio or chemotherapy and sitting in a waiting room where there are other, even sicker people does not do very well to the psyche. Meditation and physical activity are excellent ways to ensure a good mental state.

The Method which is Alternative and Natural (MAN)

A basic part of the overall program for good health is diet - a diet specifically tailored to each patient's metabolism. For a patient with BPH, a low carbohydrate diet is often recommended. The rationale is as follows:
-Prostate disease is a condition that progresses slowly and responds quite well to the MAN. Other diseases, such as heart disease, diabetes and hypertension, can be a greater threat than prostate problems. Diets with processed fats have been implicated, from an epidemiological point of view, as a possible cause of prostatism, but this was not proven. One of the most obvious considerations is that all groups with a high incidence of prostate problems are also large consumers of sugar, corn syrup and other refined carbohydrates. These foods deplete our reserves of zinc and essential fatty acids (EPA and DHA) and the lack of these substances can be the cause of malignant changes.
Some foods that are worth incorporating into our diet include cruciferous and fish (fish oil) from cold water oceans. The combination of the right diet with food supplements in the MAN may result in such radical improvements in men in the early stages of BPH that other treatments become unnecessary and may continue to be unnecessary for many years. If you are over 50 - even if you do not have symptoms - you should think of the following:
· Antioxidants: We are not just talking about the Big Three of which you hear so much talk - beta-carotene, Vitamin C and Vitamin E. Also very important are selenium, cysteine (or acetylcysteine), glutathione, coenzyme Q10, lipoic acid and bioflavonoids. Source: Eat more fruits, especially red ones and rawer vegetables.
· Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs): Essential fatty acids (EFAs) are of vital importance because they help overcome the deficiency of specific prostaglandins, which may be a contributing factor to BPH. The best dietary sources of EFAs are flaxseed oil, cod liver oil and/or salmon. One can also take EFAs in capsule form. (Look for the Nutritional Supplement called "NORMALINNE", formulated with the best fatty acids).
· Zinc. Zinc exists in large concentrations in the prostate. If the prostate is hypertrophied, it probably has low levels of this essential mineral. In my experience, zinc supplements often decrease the prostate: several studies in the medical literature have indicated similar results. In one study, for example, of 19 patients with BPH treated with zinc supplements, in 14 there had been a measurable decrease in only two months.
· Manganese. Since it protects the zinc in the body, this mineral should also be added to your regimen to maintain a good balance.
· Amino acids. You should also consider taking a capsule that contains a combination of three amino acids: L-glutamic acid, L-alanine, and L-glycine. Medical studies indicate that approximately 75 percent of men see urinary frequency decrease with the help of these amino acids.
· Saw Palmetto berries (Sabal Serrulata). Many people have shown dramatic improvement in symptoms after taking this substance - a decrease in prostate size, better urinary flow, less need to urinate at night and less discomfort. But not everything that is on the market is effective because it has to have the right proportion of sufficient fatty acids and also some extra micro-nutrients which are synergic with Saw Palmetto, which raises the cost of producing the product. For this, pay attention to what you buy. The natural supplement SSP3-FORTE has the synergistically balanced formula and is manufactured in a laboratory certified with ISO 22000. It is a good option.
Apart from these observations, independent studies have shown that Sabal Serrulata's standardized extract of berries not only blocks the action of 5-alpha reductase (the enzyme that converts testosterone to DHT), but also blocks receptors that allow prostate cells to absorb DHT. This substance (Sabal Serrulata) is quite effective when compared with the chemical version: Finasteride. Finasteride is an expensive drug that has been approved by the FDA, Finasteride inhibits too the production of DHT, but does nothing to prevent DHT from binding to prostate cells. In addition, it has been shown to work only in 37 percent of patients who take it for a full year, compared to 60 percent to 90 percent success rate in patients taking Sabal serrulata only six weeks.  And, unlike Sabal Serrulata, Finasteride can cause very unpleasant side effects, such as:
- impotence,
- ejaculation problems,
- lower volume in ejaculation,
- altered sexual function,
- unusual growth of breasts in men
- pains in the testicles.
The rate of men who suffered from impotence, after using finasteride, reached 18% in some studies. This is a very high value, which alarms any man.
Similar problems occur with Dutasteride, which is another drug heavily prescribed by physicians for BPH. You must always take into account that all the drugs have harmful side effects. For this, ALWAYS read the package inserts.

Thus, some companies, through Nutrition Medicine, focused on the development of alternative and natural remedies (nutriterapic supplements), which may act in the treatment of BPH without provoking the same adverse effects as the drug finasteride.

"SSP3-Forte" is among these new products which are natural and safe for health. You if you want quickly some more information on this effective supplement that treats BPH, you may find by searching it on Google.

· Pygeum africanum. The powdered bark of this perennial plant found in Central Africa has been used for centuries to treat urinary problems. Several European clinical trials have shown that supplementing with this substance helps to improve urinary function without toxic side effects. Pygeum africanum may also be effective in lowering blood cholesterol levels, which researchers think can cause an excessive cellular growth in the prostate.
• Beta-Sitosterol rich in Urtica Dioica, which prevents the conversion of Testosterone to Dehydrotestosterone (DHT), thus reducing the causes of prostate enlargement.
• Vitamin E, one of the most important for the health and well-being of the male reproductive system, of which the prostate is a part.
• Modified citrus pectin. There is an exciting new discovery in the ever evolving horizon of Complementary Medicine. It is citrus pectin, a component of fiber derived from citrus fruits. An animal study at Wayne State University found that this fiber prevented prostate cancer from producing metastases in rats (Journal of the National Cancer Institute, Vol. 87, 1995, pp. 348-353). Although it is a bit early to reach broad conclusions about the medical benefits of citrus pectin, this natural nutrient certainly does not hurt. 10-15 g doses are already recommended by nutritionists.

Alternative therapies

Here are some alternative therapies that are not mentioned by conventional doctors. They include therapies that are not recognized by official entities, such as diets, immunotherapy, and herbal remedies.
Diet therapy. Many alternative therapies for cancer - including the Eight-Step Program for complete prostate health which we'll cover in Chapter 6 - are based on enhancing the body's ability to prevent and treat cancer through nutrition. The best-known diet programs - Pritkin, McDougall and macrobiotics - are focused in generous amounts of fiber, fruit, and vegetables. In addition to this restricted vegetarian diet, these therapies emphasize the importance of physical fitness and a strong and positive mental attitude. The "back to basics" and "you are what you eat" philosophies behind diet-based therapies have been quite effective for thousands of people, including many of my patients.
Metabolic therapy. Fortunately, there are more and more physicians who join the philosophy of alternative or complementary methods; with complete knowledge, they have taken dietary therapy a step further. Gerson therapy is the foundation of many metabolic treatments. The program was designed by the late Dr. Max Gerson, a physician born in Germany, who was responsible for healing Albert Schweitzer's wife of advanced lung tuberculosis. The Gerson program aims to rid the patient of deadly toxins by adhering to a diet that includes flaxseed oil (a source of Omega-3 fatty acids) and carrot and liver juices (sources of vitamin A). The treatment, which is provided by the Gerson Institute in Tijuana, Mexico, proved to be successful for those who manage to adhere to the demanding regimen. Many metabolic treatments include laetrile, the symbol of alternative or complementary treatment of cancer. Laetrile (also known as vitamin B-17) is a derivative of amygdalin, a biomolecule found in the seeds of all common fruits and in 1,200 different plants. It was used by ancient Egyptians, Chinese, Greeks and Romans to treat diseases (including cancer). When used along with a metabolic diet that includes huge doses of vitamins, minerals and enzymes, laetrile has been shown to inhibit the growth of tumors. Unfortunately, it has not been accepted by the FDA nor conventional medical community. And why is that? Probably it has something to do with not being possible to make a patent out of it.
Interestingly, the center for the treatment of cancer in Tijuana, Mexico, is also not accepted. There, at the biomedical center, the Hoxsey treatment for cancer is given. This alternative therapy is perhaps the most difficult to believe, but it has been proven to work. At first it was formulated as a tonic for horses and was given to Harry Hoxsey, who began prescribing it to humans in smaller quantities along with a restricted diet in the 1920s. The tonic contains several herbs that have known anticancer properties, such as licorice, red clover, burdock root, American Phytolacca root, and sacred shell bark. You can read more about Hoxsey's treatment in Judith Glassman's Cancer Survivors book.
Immunotherapy. Immunotherapy focuses on the use of substances produced by the body of the patient to strengthen the immune system so that it itself can attack the cancer cells.
One of the most well-known immunotherapy treatments is the Immuno-augmentative therapy (IAT) developed by Lawrence Burton, Ph.D. (who was an oncologist for 15 years at St. Vincent's Hospital in New York City). Dr. Burton has discovered that certain proteins have to be present in the blood so that the immune system can fight cancer. IAT consists in injecting patients with missing proteins twice a day. Despite the testimonials of numerous notable recovery patients, this method, which seems so simple and logical, was denounced by the medical community of the United States. Because of his methods, Burton was exiled to the Bahamas, where he runs an outpatient department called the Immunological Research Center at Rand Memorial Hospital in Freeport.

IAT is not toxic and has very few secondary effects.

The Livingston treatment is a holistic form of immunotherapy developed by Dr. Virginia Livingston, a former professor at the University of Rutgers. This treatment consists of two vaccines - one prepared from a culture of the patient's bacteria, the other a vaccine against tuberculosis (BCG) - along with a restricted vegetarian diet and psychotherapy. For more information about the Livingston treatment, contact the Livingston-Wheeler Medical Clinic.

Therapies based on medicinal plants. In Germany, Sabal Serrulata is a treatment taken in high regard for prostate conditions. Sabal Serrulata is a small palm tree native to Florida. The tree gives a fruit that is used to relieve the problems and discomfort of the prostate for centuries. The lipid (fat and sterol) extract from Sabal Serrulata berries has been shown to be effective in alleviating the symptoms of a hypertrophied prostate due to the inhibition of Dihydrotestosterone, the compound suspected to be the cause of prostate hypertrophy.
American Indians had great confidence in these berries, eating four or five a day to improve their sex life. Only recently Sabal Serrulata is finally getting the recognition it deserves as a potent prostate medicine. The researchers documented a recent case of a 70-year-old man who successfully normalized prostate function by eating the berries. And even urologists, after years of dismissing it as a fantasy cure, are prescribing Sabal Serrulata to help alleviate prostate problems.
Cumin is another herb that has important anti-cancer properties. In a study of patients with urological cancer, including prostate carcinoma, urologists at the Western Galilee Regional Hospital found that cumin consumption played a role in cancer prevention. Researchers determined that 40 percent of those who did not have cancer used cumin regularly in food, compared to only 12 percent of those with cancer. Animal studies at the Adyar Cancer Institute in Madras, India, support the Israeli results. The Indian research studied 20 spices and leaves of different plants looking for anticancer properties. In a series of tests, Cumin has greatly increased the activity of the chemical GST in the body, a detoxifying enzyme that is known to protect against certain types of cancer. In another test, cumin blocked 83 percent of the damage generally produced on chromosomes by a highly carcinogenic chemical, while poppy seeds blocked 80 percent and saffron 54 percent.
It has also been shown that bee pollen effectively treats chronic prostatitis. In a study done by Liker Johnson, a doctor at the Urology Unit of the University of Lund, Sweden, gave ten patients with advanced chronic prostatitis bee pollen supplement for a year. At the end of the year, five of the patients had no symptoms. And yet another study was conducted by Yutaka Saito, a physician in the urology department of the Medical College of Nagasaki University. Dr. Saito gave the same bee pollen supplement to 30 patients with chronic prostatitis over a six-month period. 16 of the patients improved drastically, 13 showed remarkable improvements and only one patient did not improve.
Essiac. Essiac is another alternative or complementary treatment for cancer that has been highly successful but has been completely ignored by conventional medicine. Essiac is a tea made from Indian rhubarb, sorrel (Rumex acetosa), elm trees (Ulmus fulva), and burdock roots. The treatment was first made known to the public in the 1920s by Rene Caisse, a former head nurse at the Providence Sisters Hospital in Haileybury, Ontario. Caisse came across this ancient Indian remedy when he met a woman in Canada who had used the treatment to cure a cancer of the breast. Caisse was smart enough to take note of the prescription and use it later successfully to treat her own liver and stomach terminal cancer. After two months of tea, her aunt got better and lived another 22 years. Caisse began to treat all his "terminal" patients with the tea, with great success.
Essiac (spelled Caisse backwards) has been used as an herbal medicine in literally thousands of patients for 70 years, and yet almost no one has heard of it. Essiac, now used to fight against the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), exists in the United States.

SSP3-FORTE. It is one of the best nutritional supplements on the market which works as an alternative natural treatment that has achieved great success in the treatment of BPH since 1995 in Europe.
Many men are now looking for an alternative natural treatment, since they know that this is a better solution for the well-being of their prostate and for avoiding surgery. SSP3-FORTE supplement is not just a proven product. It is also manufactured in accordance with the demanding European Union standards of quality control and safety. SSP3-FORTE contains a natural formulation based on specific plant extracts that are proven to treat BPH, plus vitamins and minerals important for the proper functioning of the Prostate. Anyone looking for a treatment for Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia should try SSP3-FORTE. Its formula is purposely synergistic to increase efficacy, including even the powerful anticancer Lycopene, among other nutrients vital to the proper functioning of the prostate.
Antineoplastic therapy. Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski, a biochemist from Poland and working in Houston, Texas, has discovered that a group of peptide chains (short chains of amino acids) and amino acid derivatives that are naturally present in our body inhibit the growth of cells cancerous. It gave these peptide chains the name of antineoplastons, because of their ability to inhibit neoplastic or cancerous cell growth. Burzynski found that cancer patients have few of these peptide chains in the body, and that when they were reintroduced into the patients' blood orally or intravenously, they achieved a reduction or even complete remission of the tumor. Dr. Burzynski opened the Burzynski Research Institute in 1977 and has successfully treated more than 2000 cancer patients, most of whom are in advanced stages of the disease. At this time, this therapy was approved for clinical trials by the National Cancer Institute (NCI).
Anti-neoplastic therapy has been successfully used in the treatment of patients with prostate cancer. It can also be used along with other therapies for cancer. Scientists in countries like Japan, Poland and the Commonwealth of Independent States are actively investigating neoplastons, while researchers in the United States continue to drag their feet.
Acupuncture. Acupuncture is particularly useful in minimizing the ill-effects of treatments prescribed by Western Medicine. If you decide to undergo a conventional treatment, I advise you to try acupuncture as a complementary treatment.
Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese system based on the belief that health is determined by the equilibrium flow of vital energy (qi or chi) through the body. In acupuncture certain body points are stimulated with the introduction and removal of needles to direct the flow of energy in the body. This effective and essentially painless operation stimulates the immune system and relieves pain. It is a proven non-invasive method that does not cause side effects.
Shark cartilage. Research has shown that shark cartilage can stop blood flow to tumors, thereby stopping tumor growth and eventually shrinking tumor size. Tumors grow with their own blood vessels in a process called angiogenesis. Cartilage, on the other hand, does not produce its own blood vessels because of its anti-angiogenic content. Robert Langer, MD, at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, has shown that cartilage of sharks has 1000 times more of this angiogenesis inhibitor than any other type of cartilage.
Therapeutic touch. Therapeutic Touch Therapy was developed in 1972 by Dr. Dolores Krieger, Emeritus Professor at New York University, and by Dora Kunz, a Healer. Therapeutic Touch has been taught at more than 80 colleges in the United States and 68 countries. Ironically, this therapy essentially involves no contact between the healer and the patient. Instead, the healer determines the blockages in the patient's energy field by placing his/hers hands at a 2 to 6-inch distance from the patient’s body and moving them in slow, rhythmic movements. The healer then works to replenish the flow of energy with hand movements similar to where needed. It is effective in relieving congestion and removing obstructions. Therapeutic Touch has been shown to reduce anxiety, tension, pain, and inflammation. Like acupuncture, it is an excellent complementary therapy if you decide to undergo conventional treatment.
Marma Therapy. Practitioners of Ayurveda use the sensitive points on the skin that they call marmas (similar to the meridians of Chinese medicine). The stimulation of the marmas directs the flow of energy and makes the connection between the mind and the body. The massage therapy marma stabilizes the energy in the body stimulating any of the 107 marmas. Transcendental meditation is an effective way of stimulating the three primary marmas from within. These marmas are found in the head, heart and lower abdomen and have a strong influence on the remaining 104 marmas.
Practitioners of Ayurveda first determine the specific energies that are unbalanced in the patient. Once determined, the practitioner can point the marmas to massage to re-establish the harmony between the energy fields. Practitioners often use a daily massage with sesame oil (abhyanga) that reaches all the marmas. Another marvel stimulant treatment that strengthens the immune system is pachkarma. This highly stimulating and soothing therapy consists of dripping various types of oils on the forehead along with special herbal medical treatments introduced through steam therapy and herbal enemas. Ayurveda patients testify to how effective marma therapy is for relieving tension, pain and other chronic illnesses. It is also an invaluable technique for achieving vital health and well-being by unifying the mind and body. Marvel therapy is offered at Ayurveda clinics as an inpatient or outpatient therapy.
Hydrotherapy. Hydrotherapy has been used for centuries to maintain good health. The process involves the use of water (hot, cold, cold, steam, etc.) in a sitz bath, shower, Jacuzzi, sauna, shower, bath, cataplasms, foot baths, wrap, etc. The most common hydrotherapy treatment for BPH is a partial immersion of the pelvic area. It can be made in hot water, cold water, or in a combination of hot and cold water. A warm sitz bath is often given initially to relax and open the urinal. This bath is taken for three to ten minutes in water between 40.5 and 45 degrees centigrade, followed by a sponge lavage of the pelvic area. A warm foot bath between 43 and 46 degrees Fahrenheit along with the sitz bath caused even greater relief. A neutral sitz bath (given between 33 and 35 ° C, from 15 minutes to two hours, is effective to reduce acute inflammations.

Additional therapies for fighting tumors

Tumor markers are crucial to the method. In general, if and when they increase indicating the growth and spread of cancer, along with another effective alternative treatment to the patient's cancer defense arsenal, increasing the dose or frequency of effective treatments that I am already administering. In the case of prostate cancer, PSA is a reliable tumor marker; and the additional therapies usually make it back to normal.
Following is a partial list of the natural therapies against cancer or that help establish the resistance, which my patients have received en route to prolonged remissions of cancer are defined as incurable by traditional medicine.

Pancreatic enzymes
Large amounts of pancreatic enzymes are an integral part of some of the most successful alternative cancer treatments, including those devised by Drs. Nicholas Gonzalez and William Donald Kelly, by most German and Austrian programs and by the Americans who administer “metabolic therapy". When enough enzymes are administered orally, it is quite common to see a "healing crisis" due to the rapid breakdown of cancerous tissue. Tumor collapse is more likely to be caused by pancreatic enzymes than by most forms of chemotherapy. For this reason, internal cleaning techniques have to be used together with high doses of enzymes.

Oxygen supply therapies

Although oxygen-based therapies have not yet been approved, more than 10 million people worldwide have benefited from them. Hundreds of studies have been demonstrating that these immune-enhancing therapies are effective in more than 50 diseases - and 100 percent safe as long as they are administered by a qualified professional.
The application of oxygen to cancer is another therapy based on the work of Nobel Prize winner Otto Warburg. Dr. Warburg has shown that in tissue cultures, normal cells become cancerous when deprived of oxygen - and that oxygen can kill cancer cells. His theory is that an oxygen deficiency may be the leading cause of all cancer. And he suggested oxygen therapy as a form of treatment.
There are many, many options

There are many other alternative treatments: germanium (an element capable of killing tumors and enhancing the functioning of the immune system), holly (used by many European physicians since the 1920s and supported by dozens of published studies), hydrazine sulfate (best agent ever invented to reverse the weakening - called "cachexia" - in patients with cancer), tonsil / laetrile, cat's claw, Maitake's D fraction, Hoxsey herbs, and dozens of others.
The hypertermia option
We return to the still controversial issue of whether prostate cancer should be treated locally when it is detected early and if it is confined to the prostate alone. The conventional way of thinking is that cancer removal is curative, as it is usually the case with breast cancer. But prostate cancer is very different. The advantages of local excision/radiation for patient survival are insignificant. It seems that better results are obtained with intermittent hormonal therapy as the main orthodox contribution.
But there is a local therapy that may account for much of our success rate with patients. It is hyperthermia (heat treatment), the same treatment that works so well with benign prostate diseases.
Hormonal therapy is almost always started along with hyperthermia treatments. The effectiveness of hyperthermia in destroying cancer has been known for some years. It focuses on the biological characteristics of cancer cells (and also benign, fast-growing tumors) that make them much more susceptible to heat damage than normal cells. By increasing blood flow in the prostate, hyperthermia directs and enhances the effectiveness of other treatments.
Since hyperthermia also increases the permeability of cancer cell membranes, the therapeutic agents penetrate the cells better to exert their therapeutic effect.
Dr. Mendecki offers several explanations for this phenomenon. Heat promotes the release of enzymes that help digest cancer cells; inhibits DNA and weakens the replication of cancer cells; also, tumors are more easily damaged by heat than normal tissue. In addition, several studies have shown that hyperthermia in conjunction with radiation can achieve cancer destruction while causing much less damage to the immune system and bone marrow when compared with the radiation therapy alone.
Another local therapy that physicians can use to highlight the curative effect of non-toxic natural therapies is called "accelerated charge neutralization" (ACN) which reverses the (usually negative) electrical charge around the tumor using an electrical pulse with an opposite charge to that of the tumor. According to its inventor, Dr. Robert Bradford, the decrease in size caused in tumors was very satisfactory in the case of prostate cancer.
Since all of these treatments are mild, exceptionally safe and well tolerated, we think it is not worth relying on only one. All these therapies are "puzzle pieces" and all make "watchful waiting" look like a real crime.
Cancer can be managed. Most importantly, understand that you have many safe alternative treatment options. Conventional therapies (those normally prescribed right away) can have detrimental effects. If you try them first – you risk your life. Alternative therapies, on the other hand, do not hurt you. They do not weaken your immune system and they leave your male anatomy intact.

The recent non-natural invention for prostate treatment.

Until a few years ago, if your prostate continued to bother you, you would not have much choice. Even after experiencing all the complementary therapies you would have to consider the surgery. For most men, it is no longer necessary to do so. There is a better option - a much better option: transurethral or transurethral hyperthermia. It is a high temperature microwave treatment that was first proposed by Dr. Jozef Mendecki in 1980 (though only recently approved by the FDA). He developed the technology with one of the leading microwave companies in Israel.
Based on the principle that it is possible to warm and destroy the hypertrophied tissue inside the prostate without unbalancing the functions of the gland, hyperthermia was first used with a special applicator placed in the rectum, from which deep hyperthermic microwaves were sent to the back of the prostate. The rectal area was protected with a cooling device as microwaves warmed the prostate tissue to 43 degrees Celsius. In the last two years, a new method, invariably used by more clinics, has been invented: a tiny microwave wand is introduced painlessly through the urethra (the urinary canal of the penis) to reach the central part of the prostate and precisely heats the area where the gland most often causes obstruction of the urinary stream.
A hyperthermia treatment takes 60 minutes and is given weekly for four to eight weeks. It is completely pain free, does not require anesthesia and is an outpatient operation. It is highly effective in more than 70 percent of cases and generally costs $ 1,000 to $ 2,000 compared to $ 10,000 to $ 18,000 for a TURP with the required hospitalization.
After all, there has been no great rush to adopt or speak in this operation. Why? Economics, I guess. TURPs are the financial basis of urology, and hyperthermia threatens a safeguarded surgical technique that means 400,000 highly profitable operations per year.

Other non-natural treatments in the horizon
In addition to hyperthermia, there are two treatments under investigation at this time that look promising as effective alternatives to the risky and bloody method of TURP. One is cryosurgery, during which super-cooled liquid nitrogen freezes and kills hypertrophied prostatic tissue. The other is laser surgery, during which an instrument is introduced into the penis to shave the part of the prostate that is causing the blockage.
At the moment, however, the best way to treat advanced HBP is with hyperthermia and food support - a completely risk-free combination. Two-thirds to three-quarters of all men who follow this method have satisfactory results, with which they can live without side effects.

In this chapter, an informative and entirely natural program is described. This program leads you 8 steps towards optimal prostate health.
Step 1.
Avoid known irritant food substances. Alcohol, caffeine, cigarettes, and milk are as bad for your prostate as for any part of your body, so keep away from them. (Very tasty whiskeys, such as Scotch whiskey, contain aromatic oils that cause special irritation of the prostate). And once fluids get rid of the harmful substances in the body, make sure you drink lots of them - especially water.
Step 2.
Stay sexually active. Sexual activity is natural, healthy and good for the prostate. We know that the incidence of prostate problems is lower in sexually active men. We also know that sexual activity maintains healthy blood flow to the reproductive organs - which is important because men with vascular problems often become powerless. Ejaculate 5 times a week is good for the health of your prostate.
Abstaining from sex can unbalance the whole system and cause irritation in the prostate, but too much sex can do so to. Use your common sense. If you spend all night making love - especially if you delay ejaculation over and over again - it will irritate your prostate. And if you do not use a condom to protect yourself, you are asking for an infection.
And the "party or hunger" attitude toward sex can also be dangerous. Dr. Monroe Greenberger, one of the greatest authorities on prostate problems, tells the story of a sailor who was away from his wife for long periods of time while he was out at sea. When he returned home, he and his wife tried to make up for lost time as best they could. Then he returned to his duty, leaving her again. Needless to say, he ended up having to go and visit Dr. Greenberger because of a very irritated prostate.
Step 3.
Leave the sofa and move. Even just an everyday walk helps. Physically active men tend to have fewer prostate problems to begin with, and those who already have problems realize that exercise alleviates their symptoms - probably because exercise increases the flow of oxygen and blood to all tissues, including those of the prostate.
Exercise is one of the best things you can do for your complete well-being. It tones the body, gives it more energy and even feeds the mind. People who exercise regularly are more optimistic and able to solve health problems with a positive attitude. And a positive attitude, by itself, has already proven to have a dramatic effect on the cures.

Step 4.
Pay attention to your food. In general, an Ayurvedic or macrobiotic diet is recommended to prevent and treat prostate cancer. All Ayurvedic practices increase the level of T cells and increase the activity of the immune system, which helps your body fight disease. And the amount of sugars (carbohydrates) you eat, affect the level of the hormonal system. Too many, can cause problems in the prostate, among others.
If you follow a low carbohydrate diet (the Paleolithic or the Ketogenic diets, for example), it will help keep your whole body in optimum physical condition. What's more, if you're fat, it helps you lose those extra pounds and avoid the various problems (including prostate problems) that obesity can cause.
Here are some specific recommendations that can help you, too:
> Eat more vegetables and moderately red meat. Do not accompany animal protein (meat, fish) on your dish with starches like potatoes, rice, pasta, grain and beans. Choose cooked or raw vegetables and roots (salads with carrots, onions, turnips, sweet potatoes, cassava, radish, beet, etc) instead. Vegetables contain all kinds of enzymes, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants (which boost the immune system and circulatory system) and phytochemicals (which increase the number of T cells in your body).
> Eat foods rich in vitamin E, zinc and magnesium. You can obtain these micronutrients in vegetable oils like olive oil and coconut oil, whole foods, seeds such as almonds, cashew nuts, brazilian nuts, hazelnuts, walnuts and green leafy vegetables. Pumpkin seeds are a good source of zinc (a crucial ingredient in maintaining a healthy prostate) and magnesium (which French scientists have proven to be effective in treating prostate problems).

> Make sure you eat plenty of fatty acids (EPA, DHA, LA) in your diet. Fatty acids appear to influence the production of prostaglandins. Therefore, since prostaglandin deficiency may be a cause of BPH, add (in capsules) cold-water fish oil (salmon, cod, mackerel, sardines) or also coconut oil or linseed oil. Fresh berries are also a good source of fatty acids (and phytochemicals).

> Avoid soft drinks, alcohol, coffee (and all beverages with caffeine), margarine, hydrogenated vegetable oils and fried food. They interfere with the production of prostaglandins.

>  Foods that protect the prostate and more. Scientifically proven foods that have a good influence on the prevention of cancerous disease in the prostate and many others. According to scientific studies, these foods may also help during conventional treatments (those that are usually prescribed today).
Here are the main protective foods for prostate cancer (and other types):
-          Tomato, Peppers: contain the carotenoid lycopene, which protects against prostate cancer.
-          Cruciferous vegetables (Broccoli, Cauliflower, Cabbage): Cruciferous vegetables have a sulfuric substance called "sulforaphane", which acts on cell damage.
-          Flaxseed: acts in control of testosterone dosage
-          Olive Oil, Cold Water Oceans Fish Oil (cod, salmon, mackerel and sardines), Coconut Oil: The fatty acids contained in them are powerful anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial.
-          Carrot and Papaya: contain the carotenoid beta-carotene.
-          Watermelon, Strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries and ALL red fruits: contain lycopene.
-          Ginger: is anti-cancerous.
-          Dry Seeds of Pumpkin: rich in Zinc, an essential mineral for good prostate health
-          Avocado: contains fatty acids anti-cancer nutrients
Foods to avoid or eat very little:
-          Sugar and all other sweeteners
-          White flours, potatoes, white rice, pasta, cereals
-          Barbecued or processed meat.
-          Refined foodstuffs and processed products (which are package or inside cans)
-          Refined oils (almost all, LESS olive oil and coconut oil)
-          processed fats (manufactured vegetable oils, which do not exist in nature, canola oil and margarine, for example)
-          Fast food
-          Coffee (caffeine)
-          Beverages containing alcohol.
-          Milk and dairy products
-          Soft drinks
Eat more foods that are nutrient-rich and less foods that are calorie-rich. In addition to the protective foods, it is necessary to consume at least five servings of fruits and vegetables a day. This habit assists from the prevention of diabetes, hypertension and even most carcinomas in general.
> Avoid drugs that can affect your prostate and your sexual potency. Here are the most common:
· Medications for blood pressure
· Diuretics
· Antidepressants
· Medications for anxiety
· Most Tranquilizers
· Medications to regulate heart beat
· Medications for intestinal spasms
· Medications for the bladder
· Medications for Parkinson's disease
· Medications for allergies (antihistamines)
· Muscle relaxants
· Medications for ulcers
· Immunosuppressants
· and others... (Also, as one may easily infer, these drugs also affect the female sexual disposition.).
We must always take into account that drugs are chemicals invented by the mankind. As such, they are not natural; not part of nature! For this reason, the human body does not tolerate them properly, suffering side effects.
> Eat honey. In Cambodia, natives eat pollen and honeycombs to keep the prostate healthy. This natural preventative has another benefit - it helps treat impotence. Modern scientific studies have shown that pollen helps the prostate to function under conditions. It is full of vitamins and minerals important for glandular function and the production of Testosterone, the most important male hormone substance.
Step 5.
Take supplements of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. You can’t depend only on fruits and vegetables for the nutrients you need, because many of them grow on soils lacking minerals. So you could supplement your diet daily with vitamin A (up to 10,000 U.I.s), vitamin E (up to 400 to 800 U.I.s), vitamin C (500 to 1000 milligrams) and selenium (200 micrograms).
The most important for prostate health is zinc (60 mgs per day). Many doctors who prescript natural therapies for prostate problems have zinc as their basis. This is because there is evidence that men suffering from prostate problems have low levels of zinc in prostate fluids. Supplementing your diet with zinc can increase levels and reduce prostate hypertrophy. In fact, in one study, 14 of 19 prostate patients who were treated with zinc exhibited a decrease in prostate size in only two months.
Step 6. Add the natural supplement

 “SSP3 Forte” – Prostate & Virility Formula

Plants, Vitamins and Minerals based.
Be very careful when buying prostate supplements because the ingredients in the formula may not be the best and may not have the best synergy between them.
For the best results look for a product that contains in its daily dose at least 160 mgs of extract and that comes with a high percentage of fatty acids and phytosteroids (which is the case of SSP3-Forte). It is advisable to be aware because there are other forms of Sabal Serrulata which include ground berries, or dyes or powder from the leaves or the stem of the plant, in tablets or capsules, which have little efficacy.
Below, you may find all of the ingredients in SSP3-FORTE, and they all act or help to act positively on the Prostate. Examine for yourself:
· Natural Ingredient # 1:  a berrie extract (instead of the extract from the leaves or stem of the plant, as it happens in some competing products); it will help you minimize the tendency that your body has to convert free Testosterone in its most malignant form, called Dehydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT causes excess cell reproduction in the Prostate, which can eventually lead to an increase in this organ (a.k.a. HPB). Sabal Serrulata berry extract inhibits the conversion of Testosterone to DHT. Further, recent studies have shown that this natural ingredient has an antiestrogenic effect, which is beneficial since it is known that estrogen contributes to prostate problems by inhibiting the elimination of DHT.
• Natural Ingredient # 2: a Beta-Sitosterol-rich medicinal root, which also prevents the conversion of Testosterone to Dehydrotestosterone (DHT), thereby reducing the causes of prostate enlargement.
• Natural ingredient # 3: a medicinal plant widely used by the ancients in the treatment of prostate, kidney and bladder maladies. Helps in improving the urinary blast.
• Natural Ingredient #4: Zinc. This essential mineral, known to fight disease and increase immunity, is also considered the most important nutrient for the overall health of the male reproductive system. Your body stores Zinc in only two places: the Retina and the Prostate. It is not surprising that Zinc is known as a guard against blindness, as well as a regulator of Testosterone in the Prostate. Studies have shown that Zinc reduces symptoms by inhibiting the activity of 5-alpha-reductase, the enzyme that converts free testosterone to Dehydrotestosterone. In a more recent study, 14 of the 19 patients who were treated with Zinc showed prostate swelling in only two months.
• Natural Ingredient # 5: a powerful anti-oxidant that helps and protects your Prostate from cancer.
• Natural Ingredient # 6: a Vitamin that, among other functions, serves to help decrease PSA.

Other herb-based treaments you can try:

> Ambrosia - has been shown to actually reduce the size of tumors - and the side effects of radiation.

> Parsley tea – it can be effective for any urinary tract problems, including BPH. Parsley is a good source of vitamin A and is also diuretic, which promotes urine flow.

Step 7.
Try aromatherapy. Aromatherapy is the therapeutic use of essential oils. Oils can be taken orally or put into the body after a shower or soaking. Sometimes I prescribe a specific oil to be applied at bedtime so it can take effect while my patient sleeps. If you are interested in using aromatherapy to treat or prevent prostate problems, consult an Ayurvedic practitioner or homeopathic practitioner.
Step 8.
Unwind. Some studies have shown that people suffering from heart disease, stroke, or cancer, as well as other diseases, benefit greatly from a positive mental attitude and willingness to improve. All Oriental medical methods emphasize the importance of a peaceful mind for total well-being. And they have good reasons for that. Your body reacts physically to the emotional tension in your brain - even if you do not realize it. Tension gives rise to hypertension, the so-called "silent killer" that is at the origin of heart attacks, strokes, and even kidney failure. Tension is also a contributing factor to ulcers and has been indicated as a possible cause of weakness of the immune system. The simple fact is that learning to control the tension can keep you healthy.
We advise everyone to practice a form of relaxation therapy - one that gives well-being to the mind and body and at the same time gives them energy. This prevents the body from literally being wasted and susceptible to illness and disease.
> The best medicine I know for the mind/body is transcendental meditation (TM) - a technique that allows you to achieve a stable state of relaxation that is more restful than sleep.
> Acupuncture and acupressure are also excellent. These techniques give energy and balance the functions of the mind and body, so that they work more effectively and in better harmony with each other. Both have to do with the pressure points that influence pain, and "imbalances" in your system - some of which specifically affect the prostate. It is known that acupuncture and acupressure have alleviated the symptoms of BPH, prostate cancer and prostatitis.

> Tai Chi is an extraordinary exercise for the treatment and prevention of diseases. This ancient Chinese art tones the body, channels the mind and energizes the body system.
All of these relaxation techniques need personal instruction - which exists in almost every city. Search the Internet or make recommendations to friends.
This program has helped hundreds of people with prostate problems - and even cancer - and it may also work for you. But it was never meant to replace normal medical care. If you already have symptoms, you have to visit a doctor who can monitor your progress and work with you to design a treatment plan that suits you and your individual needs.
But as I mentioned earlier in this book, it all depends on you. If you suffer from symptoms of prostate problems, you can start today with the Eight-Step Program. And if you do not have prostate symptoms, my advice is the same, prevention, start today, too, with the Eight-Step Program. Do not let yourself become part of the statistics we talked about here.
