Men's Well Being and Prostate Health

Dr. Mercola on prostate surgery: - "While many doctors think immediately of eliminating the problem, they think very little of the treatment's devastating side effects that seriously diminish the patient's quality of life. And, for the 40,000 American men who have their prostates removed each year, 35 percent of the men afflicted find themselves dealing with the return of the disease within just five years."

By arming yourself with information on the latest breakthroughs, treatments, and prevention methods you can make your fight against this deadly disease a winning one. This book goes beyond conventional treatments, telling you what doctors often don't: that for many men, nature offers far better alternatives than surgery for prostate problems. For those who are quietly suffering with prostate problems and cancer, the goal is to find ways to relieve the pain, reverse the disease and restore the body to vibrant natural health. This book brings you breakthrough treatments and healing possibilities to turn your prostate problems around and reclaim your vitality.

Of the hundreds of animal species with a prostate gland, only humans and dogs are known to suffer from prostate cancer and prostatic hyperplasia (an overgrowth of prostate tissue). The prostate is a walnut-sized gland that surrounds the urethra, the tube that drains the bladder through the penis (see figure 41). It is responsible for the production of fluid that car-ries the sperm when ejaculating. Other prostate problems include infection—both acute and chronic prostatitis. The majority of men will have some sort of prostate problem in their lifetimes.

Not all prostate enlargement is cancerous. In fact most enlarged prostates are benign. Hypertrophy of the prostate is caused by an enlargement of the cells in the gland, unlike cancer, which is enlargement caused by an increase in the number of cells. This condition is age related and increases from an incidence of 8% in 30 to 40 year olds, to over 80% in men over 80. Enlargement of the gland often leads to impaired flow from the bladder. Symptoms are frequent and difficult urination, a weak urinary stream, straining, dribbling, incomplete emptying and recurrent urine infections.

GLUTATHIONE IN THE HUMAN MALE

Researchers have found that abnormal growth in these tissues often cor-responds to deficiencies in glutathione enzymes (GSH). One is glutathione-S-transferase, which has several sub-types. The balance of these sub-types varies from normal prostate tissue to hypertrophic prostates to cancerous prostates. Several researchers propose that deficiencies in this GSH enzyme system increase the likelihood of developing both an enlarged prostate and prostate cancer. One of the more significant series of papers to be published on glutathione and prostate cancer comes from the University of Wisconsin. Researchers there describe male hormones (androgens) as a source of oxidative stress, particularly in cancerous prostate cells. An article in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute claims that androgens stimulate free radical damage and also deplete glutathione. Given the natural decline of glutathione levels in males as they age, the article suggests that "unop-posed androgen pro-oxidant stress" contributes to prostate cancer.
The Role of Glutatione and Immunocal in Prostate Health - Dr. Mazlen

Dr. Bounous M.D - "Every day our bodies are exposed to factors that drain our levels of glutathione: Stress, pollution, radiation, infection, drugs, poor diet, aging, injury and fatigue. These all contribute to glutathione depletion which, in turn, leads to cellular aging, disease and death."

Natural defense against oxidative stress is weakened by the decline of GSH en-zymes. This is an interesting model for the development of prostate cancer. Another finding links the loss of glutathione activity to prostate cancer. The function of a particular glutathione enzyme glutathione-S-transferase-pi-i (GSTP1) is almost universally lost in both cancerous and pre-cancerous prostate cells. The inactivation of this glutathione enzyme is an early event in the development of prostate cancer. Many studies have linked the loss of GSTP 1 to malignant transformation of prostatic tissues.

CASE STUDY

Franklin was a semi-retired general practitioner who at age 68 scored a PSA reading of over 8 micrograms/liter on a routine screening exam, suggesting a high possibility of prostate cancer. In continued tests, a urologist took a cystoscopic biopsy and confirmed the diagnosis. Four out of Franklin's six biopsy sites tested positive for high-grade tumor. For personal and practical reasons, Franklin delayed aggressive treatment and opted to take 30 grams/day of Immunocal, a protein isolate that raises glutathione levels. Bimonthly PSA levels showed a gradual decline, his latest reading being 3.8 u/L. He is still being closely followed by his urologist, and his decision to undergo chemotherapy, radiotherapy or surgery will be deferred unless his PSA levels rise again.

Patricia A.L. Kongshavn, Ph.D - "It has been proposed that deficiency in this glutathione enzyme system increases the likelihood of developing both an enlarged prostate and prostate cancer. Studies are in progress to investigate the benefit of using Immunocal as a complementary treatment for prostate cancer since this dietary supplement is already proven to raise intracellular glutathione in normal adults (5). A number of case reports describing the beneficial effects of this treatment in prostate cancer patients have recently been published by Bounous (6). In these patients PSA (prostate specific antigen) values fell, indicating reduction of the tumor mass. Immunocal is also indicated for use as a prophylaxis against benign hypertrophy as well as cancer since both conditions appear to be related to deficiency in the glutathione enzyme system. In summary, there is increasing evidence that the glutathione system provides a vitally important defense against prostate problems. Therefore, dietary treatments to support or enhance this system, in particular Immunocal and selenium, could be very important in maintaining a healthy gland as well as providing protection against the development of prostate cancer"
Patricia A.L. Kongshavn, Ph.D Former Professor: Department of Medicine, McGill University, Montreal, Canada

Dr. Jimmy Gutman, M.D - "Clinical evidence links low glutathione GSH levels to the most common illnesses of our time as well as newly emerging diseases. Glutathione levels diminish as we age and many diseases normally associated with aging have been linked to glutathione deficiency."

Dr. Allan Somersall M.D - "To raise glutathione levels GSH is to reduce premature oxidation, to quench destructive free radicals and help detoxify the poisons inside each cell when it needs to. Only Immunocal is clinically proven to do that in a safe, effective and convenient way."

Prostate Cancer: A 66 year old male medical report on 25/08/2001 showed Carcino Embryonic Antigen (CEA) : 5.4v ng/ml & Prostatic specific antigen : 21.7v ng/ml. And doctor recommended him for chemotheraphy. He went to another doctor for a 2nd opinion and was advised to take Immunocal from 28/08/2001 (20gm per day). He went for check-up after 30 days and the report showed CEA : 3.0ng/ml & PSA 4.9h ng/ml. After 53 days, he went for another check-up and the medical report showed CEA : 2.5 ng/ml & PSA : 2.8 ng/ml. At 95 days, another medical report showed CEA 2.5 ng/ml & PSA 2.1 ng/ml. The doctor said that he is totally cancer-free.

One man who had been taken off Chemotherapy after developing heart toxicity from the chemotherapy treatments [for his Prostate Cancer] had a PSA reading of 208 (that is through the roof!). Roy's PSA was 70 when he had cancer. After one month of taking Immunocal, his PSA reading dropped to 28! The following month it dropped to 11! He then went on vacation like he had done before he was ill. Immunocal turned his situation around and gave him his life back!

Prostate Cancer Cured With Omega 3a drugless approach - A Tape Transcription by Clifford Beckwith's testimonial

"In January 1991 I was diagnosed with Advanced Prostate Cancer. Bone scans and other tests indicated no spread so it was decided to operate. During the operation it was discovered that the cancer had spread to the Lymph glands making it stage four. The operation was not completed as that would not be the answer."

"He quoted from another book, "How to fight Cancer and Win" by Fischer. There are three chapters on oils describing the work of Dr. Johanna Budwig in Germany. She is a Biochemist and blood specialist who has been treating cancer of all kinds with nothing but cottage cheese and Flaxseed Oil for over 16 years. She says that people with cancer have blood that is low in Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids and the blood has a greenish cast. Flaxseed oil is 56% Omega 3 and 16% Omega 6. Recently I read that most people have blood that is 80% deficient in Omega 3. Dr. Budwig has taken patients sometimes given only hours to live and restored them to health."

"From physicals done in 1994 the doctor said that my bloodwork was excellent and Mary Anna's was the best he'd seen so far in her case. As I record this in October 1996 all physicals since then have shown the same result. Though as of July, 2001 I still have some cancer activity, I am in no danger. A body scan and other tests done in November were all normal. I quit the Lupron and Eulexin in October of 1995. For a man diagnosed with advanced, semi aggressive, prostate cancer to be alive in ten years with all tests normal is not common." Read Cliff's testimonial of his amazing recovery to health

Prostate Health with Marine Phytoplankton (Marine Fatty Acids) "In June 2006 I was diagnosed with prostate cancer. I was introduced to Marine Phytoplankton at about the same time so I started taking three caps per day. A week later blood tests confirmed that I had the fastest growing cancer, with a 10 out of 10 for bad rating. I was sent for a physical test that confirmed the cancer was outside the prostate; that was not a good sign. I continued taking the Marine Phytoplankton at triple doses and finally last Friday we had the scan results. We were very worried, but the doctor said that the cancer had not gone any further and that it was confined. I have felt very well since starting Marine Phytoplankton and now look forward to even better results over the coming weeks." J. G.

Dr. Jerry Tennant, M.D. says that marine phytoplankton contains almost everything one needs to sustain life and to restore health by providing the raw materials to make new cells that function normally. Marine phytoplankton has been called "the most nutritionally dense foods on the planet". Containing a wide range of trace elements, amino acids, vitamins, minerals, chlorophyll, enzymes and cellular materials, marine phytoplankton promotes and maintains optimum health by boosting and supporting all systems within the body. Its antioxidants and unique polysaccharides can halt the genetic mutations that can lead to cancer. Both high levels of saccharides and adaptogens increase energy and stamina by improving our ability to consume and use oxygen. Adaptogens also improve cardiovascular health by strengthening the heart and circulation. more about marine phytoplankton's healing power

Medical researchers in New Zealand provide convincing evidence that an increased consumption of fish oils helps reduce the risk of developing prostate cancer. Their study involved 317 men who had been diagnosed with prostate cancer during 1996-97 and 480 age-matched controls. Blood samples were obtained from all participants and the erythrocyte (red blood cell) phosphatidylcholine fraction of the plasma was analyzed for EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), the two main components of fish oils. Evaluation of the collected data showed a clear correlation between blood level of EPA and DHA and the presence of prostate cancer. The researchers speculate that fish oils may prevent the progression of prostate cancer by inhibiting the biosynthesis of eicosanoids from arachidonic acid. Norrish, A.E., et al. Prostate cancer risk and consumption of fish oils: a dietary biomarker-based case-control study.

Testicular Cancer

Chemotherapy given to testicular cancer patients causes long-term neurological damage including hearing loss and Raynaud-like phenomena
Long-term survivors of testicular cancer who were treated with cisplatin-based chemotherapy had more severe side effects, including neurological side effects and Raynaud-like phenomena, than men who were not treated with chemotherapy, according to a new study published online November 25, 2009 in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute. Marianne Brydøy, M.D., of the Department of Oncology, Haukeland University Hospital, in Bergen, Norway, and colleagues conducted a cross-sectional study to assess the prevalence of these known side effects among long-term testicular cancer survivors in Norway according to the treatment they had received. Side effects include sensory neuropathy, tinnitus, hearing impairment, and Raynaud-like phenomena (discoloration of the hands or feet on exposure to cold).


Researchers invited 1,814 men who were treated for unilateral testicular cancer during 1980-1994 to participate in a national multicenter follow-up survey conducted during 1998-2002. A total of 1,409 participants, who were allocated to three groups based on cisplatin administration, were assessable in this study. The researchers found that at 4-21 years after the initiation of treatment for testicular cancer, men who had received any chemotherapy had statistically significantly higher odds for increasing severity of all assessed symptoms compared with men not treated with chemotherapy. Treated men also had more hearing impairment, as measured by audiometry, particularly those who had received dose-intensive chemotherapy. "A major aim in the treatment of testicular cancer is to minimize toxic effects without compromising the high cure rate," the authors write. "Our data favor the use of chemotherapy regimens that contain 20 mg/m2 cisplatin per day to limit ototoxicity."

Ralph W. Moss, Ph.D. - "Conventional cancer therapy is so toxic and dehumanizing that I fear it far more than I fear death from cancer. We know that conventional therapy doesn't work--if it did, you would not fear cancer any more than you fear pneumonia. It is the utter lack of certainty as to the outcome of conventional treatment that virtually screams for more freedom of choice in the area of cancer therapy. Yet most alternative therapies regardless of potential or proven benefit, are outlawed, which forces patients to submit to the failures that we know don't work, because there's no other choice. I started as a believer in chemotherapy. As a science writer at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York, I wrote articles praising the latest advances in chemotherapy. Because chemotherapy drugs were general cellular poisons, they could be terribly toxic. They were also very expensive for patients and for society as a whole. When I learned about the links between the pharmaceutical industry and the cancer establishment (later detailed in my book, The Cancer Industry) I understood the commercial reason that such an inadequate modality was so heavily promoted." Questioning Chemotherapy

A preliminary report on the use of transfer factors for treating stage D3 hormone-unresponsive metastatic prostate cancer As conventional treatments are unsuccessful, the survival rate of stage D3 prostate cancer patients is poor. Reports have suggested the existence of humoral and cell-mediated immunity (CMI) against prostate cancer tumour-associated antigens (TAA). These observations prompted us to treat stage D3 prostate cancer patients with an in vitro produced transfer factor (TF) able to transfer, in vitro and in vivo, CMI against bladder and prostate TAA. more

Rob Robertson, M.D. conducted the following studies: Twenty patients, 12 men and 8 women, were selected for this in vivo study. The average age was 49.3. The twenty individuals were each level 3 or level 4 cancer patients. Each patient was basically sent home by his or her oncologist to die. The average life expectancy was 3.7 months. The protocol was to place each patient on 9 capsules per day of Transfer Factor Plus. The patients were given a number of other general nutrients. After eight months, 16 of these individuals were still living and were either in remission, improving or stabilized.

Transfer Factor Male Formula contains all-natural standardized herb extracts to guarantee product consistency, quality and potency. Numerous studies have demonstrated the outstanding health benefits of saw palmetto relating to prostate health. Medical professionals throughout Europe have recommended saw palmetto to individuals who need additional prostate health support.

Shocking Facts About the Pharmaceutical Industry




The Natural Prostate Cure

"I had asked for a second opinion concerning my diagnosis and treatment options from a radiation oncologist (My urologist is a surgeon whose primary method is surgical removal of the gland). I was surprised by the radiation oncologist's list of treatment options; external radiation therapy, intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), internal radiation therapy (brachytherapy), AND DIET/SUPPLEMENT therapy! This was a refreshing surprise to me, and the oncologist spent well over an hour going over the diet regimen (which he PERSONALLY follows). It was this revelation that I would eventually read about in Roger Mason's book "The Natural Prostate Cure". Having an oncologist relate all this to me in ADVANCE of ever reading the book only served to reinforce the information contained in its very informative 73 short pages which I read in one afternoon.

After reading a booklet "Understanding Radiation Therapy" (a 40 page booklet from The American Cancer Society), I was sick in my stomach from the seemingly 'grotesque' procedures, and the strong possibility of horrible side effects! The bottom line (from reading it): No predictions or guarantees can be made as to outcomes regarding surgical or radiation procedures! It is just too full of "maybe's, if's, possibly's & unknown's". Even with my approach of seeking a natural cure, the responsibility is mine; the choice is mine & the decision is mine! And I must say that decision MUST be an individual one, and MUST be made on an individual basis by the individual, and FOR the individual. All doctors, surgeons, oncologists & therapists should honor that decision, and stay off the patient's back! All of the foregoing is strictly MY opinion based on what I've read, seen & heard. But, the radiation oncologist visit, and Roger Mason's book "The Natural Prostate Cure" weighed positively on my decision to go the natural route. I gave it a five star rating NOT because it was lengthy and full of multiple syllable words, but because it was short, factual, science-based and made a lot of common sense!" an amazon.com reviewer

Prostate Health in 90 Days

Larry Clapp, Ph.D., was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 1990 and rejected the commonly held notion in the medical community that benign prostate enlargement and cancer is an inevitable part of male aging. Instead, Dr. Clapp was determined not to become another statistic. Refusing to have surgery, radiation or chemotherapy, he embarked on a personal mission to investigate alternative treatments. The results of Larry Clapp's extraordinary journey became the basis of the healing program that ultimately cured his cancer. He hows how to stop prostate trouble in its tracks, using nutrition, massage, herbs, homeopathy and other alternative healing approaches . The commonly-held belief in the medical community is that benign prostate enlargement and cancer is a normal part of male aging, a fact of life to which we should unquestioningly resign ourselves. But attorney Larry Clapp didn't buy it when he was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 1991. He refused to have surgery, radiation or chemotherapy, and opted instead to investigate alternatives, finding that prostate problems don't exist in other cultures, and concluding that prostate illness was neither inevitable nor incurable. Clapp propelled himself into an intensive research effort to evaluate both traditional and alternative healing methods, and the results became the basis of the healing program that ultimately cured his cancer. Saw palmetto extract continues to be used as a primary treatment for both short-term and long-term treatment of benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH).

Joe and Andrew's Cesium Chloride Cancer Survival Story

Joe: "I worked closely with Joe for several years in the television industry. In year 2000 at age 56, an ultrasound during a routine physical at the VA revealed a prostate tumor. Based on a subsequent needle biopsy, they diagnosed him with moderate to aggressive prostate cancer with a Gleason score of 4+3 = 7. The first doctor he saw recommended surgery to remove the prostate. Not satisfied with that, he saw another doctor who recommended radiation “seeding”, whereby they insert radiation pellets into specific areas of the prostate and tumor. Since he didn't like that option, either, he started looking into alternative cancer treatment and settled in on cesium chloride, considered to be a big-gun natural cancer cure."

Andrew: "I was diagnosed with prostate cancer July 21, 2006 with a PSA of about 7.0 and a Gleason score of 3+3 = 6. I turned down surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy in favor of cesium chloride, an easy and safe high pH alternative cancer treatment you can do at home. Three and a half months after I started taking cesium chloride, my PSA plummeted to 3.35---well



Holistic benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and prostrate cancer holistic treatments

Dr. Whitaker - "I'm in my mid-50s, the age when prostate problems become more likely. From the annoying symptoms of an enlarged prostate to the threat of prostate cancer, disorders affecting the prostate gland become increasingly common -- as does the possibility of being urged to undergo increasingly invasive procedures to diagnose and treat these disorders. However, I have no measurable problems with my prostate gland, and like the cowboy who demands to be buried with his boots on, I plan to be buried with an intact prostate gland. If you're one of the 75 percent of men 50 years and older with enlargement of the prostate gland, a condition called benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), you know the routine: Increasingly frequent nighttime visits to the bathroom, a sense of urgency, trouble getting started, and a urinary flow that's more of a dribble than a steady stream. " Dr. Whitaker

Beginning for most men between the ages of 40 and 60, and affecting virtually all of us by the time we are 80, the prostate gland undergoes a second growth spurt. It is triggered by an increase in the activity of an enzyme called 5-alpha-reductase, which is concentrated in the prostate, testicles, and scalp and converts testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT).

Increased levels of DHT are responsible for two of the least pleasant aspects of male aging: male-pattern baldness (receding hairline) and prostate growth. The prostate gland, which produces semen, sits like a doughnut around the urethra, the tube that carries urine from the bladder to the penis. The gland's accelerated growth chokes off the urethra and interferes with normal urinary flow. Unlike prostate cancer, BPH is not a life-threatening disease, yet it definitely reduces quality of life.

At its worst, BPH can lead to urinary tract infections or sometimes even complete blockage of the urethra. However, there are natural remedies available to help you maintain prostate health and relieve the symptoms of BPH. more info

Julian Whitaker MD - "The fact is that the overwhelming majority of prostate cancers are buried, untouched, with their hosts. Doctors discover cancerous changes in almost 30 percent of the prostates they check during routine autopsies of men over age 60 — even when the men neither died from prostate cancer nor knew there was a tumor. In autopsies of men over 90 who die from other causes, prostate cancer is found in virtually all of them. According to the National Cancer Institute, your risk of getting prostate cancer takes a giant leap if it runs in your family. If you have a father or brother who had prostate cancer before age 65, your chances of getting it are doubled. If you have more than one relative who's had prostate cancer,your chance of getting it may jump up to six times the average. That said, researchers estimate that 80 to 90 percent of all cancers can be prevented by lifestyle choices. The things you do every day — what you eat and drink, how active you are, how much sleep you get, your stress level — all of these affect your health and your risk of prostate cancer. But let's look at prostate cancer for what it is — a mostly slow-growing cancer that becomes more common with increasing age, but which is rarely deadly. A Diagnosis of Prostate Cancer Is NOT a Death Sentence!" Dr. Whitaker

The Prostate Miracle : New Natural Therapies That Can Save Your Life
The Herbal Remedy for Prostate Cancer
“Natural Approach To Prostate Health” by Dr. Elson Haas

The annual medical check-up - enshrined for decades as a cornerstone of preventative care - is a waste of time and money, doctors now admit. Around 44 million adults in America had a routine medical check-up between 2002 and 2004, and a range of unnecessary tests - costing $350m a year - were ordered. These included tests on blood count, serum electrolytes, and urine, plus a check on heart health. But, says Dr. Ateev Mehrotra from the University of Pittsburgh Medical Centre, these tests shouldn't be carried out routinely. Instead, they should be ordered only if the doctor has a good reason to do so. General preventative advice is often given either during other surgery visits or from other sources. The only regular check-ups worth preserving are mammogram and cervical smear tests, he says. (Source: Archives of Internal Medicine, 2007; 167: 1876-83)

Fish oils help prevent prostate cancer
Medical researchers in New Zealand provide convincing evidence that an increased consumption of fish oils helps reduce the risk of developing prostate cancer. Their study involved 317 men who had been diagnosed with prostate cancer during 1996-97 and 480 age-matched controls.

Dr. Stoll's book The Omega-3 Connection. He is a Harvard psychiatrist who has done a great job compiling evidence supporting the use of fish oils.

STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN. Several studies have shown an inverse relationship between blood levels of fish oils (eicosapentaenoic acid [EPA] and docosahexaenoic acid [DHA]) and the risk of prostate cancer. A study just completed by medical researchers at the Karolinska Institute confirms this association. The Swedish study involved 3136 pairs of male twins born between 1886 and 1925. The participants completed food frequency questionnaires in 1961 and 1967 and were then followed up for 30 years. By December 31, 1997 the researchers had recorded 466 diagnoses of prostate cancer (340 fatal ones). The average age of diagnosis was 76.7 years. After adjusting for other known risk factors the researchers conclude that men who never eat fish have a two- to three-fold higher risk of prostate cancer than do men who eat moderate to high amounts. The researchers emphasize that only fatty fish such as salmon, herring and mackerel, which contain high amounts of omega-3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA), would be expected to be beneficial.

It is estimated that 30 million American men suffer from ED and the problem is solvable for the majority of them. A man is considered impotent if he does not have the ability to achieve or maintain an erection adequate for normal sexual intercourse. Erections occur from a combination of brain stimuli, blood vessel and nerve function and hormonal action. Impotence may include certain factors, which prevent the male sperm from impregnating the female ovum, the inability to achieve or maintain erection, premature ejaculation, or the inability to ejaculate the sperm. Click here for the special report

There are numerous causes of impotence, which may include the following: certain medications and drugs, such as alcohol, cigarettes, antidepressants, antihistamines, antihypertentives, blood pressure medication, chemotherapy, diuretics, narcotics, nicotine, sedatives, steroids if abused, stomach acid inhibiters, and ulcer medications. Certain ailments may contribute to ED such as, atherosclerosis, clogged arteries, peripheral vascular disease, psychological stress, low sperm count, diabetes, depression, or lack of desire.

According to a Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) study reported on in February 1999 approximately 43 percent of women and 31 percent of men suffer sexual inadequacy for one reason or another. The reasons cited included low desire, frigidity, performance anxiety, premature ejaculation and/or pain during intercourse. This is thought to actually be an underestimation of the real level of sexual dysfunction in the U.S. Research indicated that many of the sexual concerns were likely treatable, as they are due to physical or emotional health issues.

Many women in particular still complain of a lack of sexual desire for two years after childbirth due to the hormonal and personal changes that occur. Low libido, lack of sexual desire, and lack of sexual fulfillment are a few of the potential symptoms that are not resolved for many people.

FDA Was Told of Viagra-Blindness Link Months Ago More than 13 months before a scientific journal reported that Viagra had been linked to a rare form of blindness in some men, a Food and Drug Administration safety officer made the same observation from monitoring adverse event reports and told her supervisors that doctors and patients should be warned of the findings.

Western medicine relies on aggressive prescription drugs and surgery to deal with many problems related to sexual dysfunction. Unfortunately, these methods often result in unwanted and even dangerous side effects. Non-medical methods of penis enhancement through exercise usingweights, straps, rings, and pumps have proven destructive to muscle tissue. And natural pills provide fleeting, inconsistent results. India Herbs' Vajikarana scientists combine a proprietary herbal formula based on centuries old wisdom with advice on diet, exercise, mental training, and relaxation to help men reach their peak and overcome sexual concerns through safe, natural means.


 
Ways to increase your libido with natural remedies

Self-Therapy for Sex Problemsby Daniel Steele

This well-written, easy-to-read book offers hope to those experiencing sexual problems... Although written from a male perspective, Self-Therapy for Sex Problems deals with female sexual problems in a sensitive manner.

Impotence: A Cultural History

Men have been complaining about failed erections ever since Ovid, but as University of Victoria historian McLaren (Sexual Blackmail: A Modern History) shows, their significance, and with it our conceptions of masculinity, have changed over the centuries. In the medieval world, for example, the primary concern was with whether a man was capable of consummating his marriage; it would take centuries for the physical and psychological causes to take center stage. And though everything from excessive masturbation to coitus interruptus was put forth as an explanation, just about every era, from the ancient Greeks to modern antifeminists, has found some way to put the blame on women. (In the 19th century, doctors claimed men could be put off not just by women who were reluctant but those who were too eager.) After considering the early 20th-century "quack" remedies of gland injections and vacuum pumps, McLaren devotes his final chapter to the cultural changes wrought by Viagra and other drugs created to treat "erectile dysfunction." Far from eliminating the fear of impotence, he suggests such medications may actually lead to more anxiety, as pharmaceutical companies attempt to convince men that sexual activity is vital to their well-being. Perhaps one day McLaren will write about those problems with the wide-ranging verve of this lively history.

The Viagra Alternative: The Complete Guide to Overcoming Erectile Dysfunction Naturally by Marc, M.D. Bonnard

Editorial Reviews and Book Description: The most comprehensive guide to natural, safe, and permanent cures for impotence. * One of Europe's leading sex therapists introduces psychological and sexual techniques that can help the more than 30 million men who suffer from impotence. * Emphasizes holistic cures that treat body, mind, and spirit, including herbal remedies, homeopathy, yoga, aromatherapy, and diet changes.

When Viagra burst on the scene in 1998 it became the best-selling drug of all time, surpassing even Prozac. More than 30 million men suffer from impotence, and the introduction of a pill that could solve their problems revolutionized the treatment of erectile dysfunction. Or did it? Viagra has now been implicated in more than 69 deaths, as well as heart attacks, hypertension, color blindness, and other health problems, and more and more evidence shows that impotence can rarely be cured by a "magic pill." In fact, taking Viagra may end up accentuating the greater underlying problem of which the impotence is a symptom, whether it be lack of physical well-being, poor psychological health, or relationship difficulties. For those men who wish to avoid the risks of Viagra, The Viagra Alternative offers the most up-to-date information on natural, safe, and long-term cures for impotence.

"I was one of the first people in line when Viagra, the acclaimed wonder drug, first came out. Unfortunately, my problems could not be overcome by a mere blue pill. The wonderful techniques employed by this book, including the numerous nonpharmaceutical organic natural remedies were a great help to me. The writing was brilliant, and recipes were as easy as one, two, three." an amazon.com reviewer

Safe Asian Medicine - Revive Your Sex Drive What Drives Your Sex Drive? Your libido (sex drive) is regulated by the hormone testosterone. Although classified as a male hormone, testosterone is produced by both men and women. As you age, your body produces less testosterone. The result? Your interest in sex may diminish significantly. The noted herbalist Ron Teeguarden reports that in Chinese studies, Goji (lycium) berry was shown to markedly increase testosterone levels in the blood, thereby increasing libido in both men and women. The Goji (lycium) berry is revered as one of the premier sexual tonic herbs in all of Asian medicine, and is legendary for helping to spark the passions. In fact, an old Chinese proverb cautions men who are traveling far from their wives and families: "He who travels one thousand kilometers from home should not eat Goji!” more

Male Menopause: andropause

MENOPAUSE NOT ONLY HAPPENS TO AGING WOMEN, BUT ALSO TO MEN

The state of menopause is not excluded to aging women, but also to middle-aged and elderly men. Many of the symptoms accompanying the male menopause and the aging process in men are similar to those of hypogonadism. They include a decrease in such things as libido and sexual activity, less signs of virilism such as a thinning of male hair or beard growth, a decrease in muscle mass and strength, lack of energy, ostopenia (weakened or soft bones), a decrease in cognitive functions, irritability, excessive sweating with occasional hot flushes, and a lowering of the feeling of general well-being. We can attribute at least some of these symptoms to an age associated decrease in testosterone levels.

A man often begins to experience changes in his body somewhere between ages 40 and 55. These bodily changes may be accompanied by changes in attitudes and moods. During this time a man frequently begins to question his values, accomplishments and the direction of his life. The entire gestalt of these changes has led to the notion of the mid-life crisis.

The Andropause Mystery: Unraveling Truths About the Male Menopause by Robert Tan

I am sure it causes great confusion to many men when they grow older due to physical and physiological changes, due to lack of understanding about male menopauseand distinct point. This book has unraveled the truth, which will be able to help men and women to understand better about male menopause. I recommend that this book not only for men, also equally for women. It helps the men to understand better about themselves and be able to prepare for the aging process, and the women to understand their male partner better." an amazon.com reviewer

Guide to natural treatments for Fibromyalgia and other immune system disorders

Inability to conceive after at least a year of regular sexual intercourse without the use of contraceptives, can be due to causes that lie either in the man or the woman or both. Identification of the underlying causation is the key to successful treatment.



Why Vasectomy Is Risky?

Some men suffer some pretty severe side effects after undergoing the operation. How does vasectomy affect a man’s body? This is a reasonable question, which unfortunately is rarely answered, even after significant effects occur. Let’s use an analogy of a 40-year-old fire hose. You hook this fire hose up to a hydrant and turn on the water. Let the hose represent the epididymis portion of the testicles and the vas deferens, which would measure some 20 feet in length if stretched out, and let the water represent the 50,000 sperm cells a minute that a man’s body manufactures, even after vasectomy. Now, tie a knot in the fire hose. What happens? Something is going to rupture, right? That’s why fire departments don’t use 40-year-old fire hoses, and why men develop ruptures in their testicles after their vas is tied off during the vasectomy procedure

Actually, the technical term for this phenomena is a “blowout.” According to Campbell’s Urology (a textbook for urology students and doctors) “The brunt of pressure-induced damage after vasectomy falls on the epididymis and efferent ductules…. It is likely that, in time, all vasectomized men develop ‘blowouts’ in either the epididymis or efferent ducts.” I wish I had known this before I had my vasectomy and started experiencing some of the negative effects of that rupturing process.

Autoimmune Responses

But that’s not all. When the rupturing occurs, sperm cells enter the blood stream, where they were not naturally intended to be. As a matter of fact, nature makes a very specific point of keeping sperm cells out of the blood stream, because sperm cells have very strong enzymes on their surfaces and only half a DNA strand. What does the body think is happening? The immune system is sent on full alert to fight off aperceived infection, and the body becomes “autoimmune”, i.e. the body goes to war on itself. Again from Campbell’s Urology: “Vasectomy results in violation of the blood-testis barrier producing detectable levels of serum antisperm antibodies in 60 to 80 per cent of men….” Once this reaction starts, it is difficult to stop, even with a vasectomy reversal. It would have been good to know this also before it began happening in me.



Tinnitus (Ringing and Other Ear Noise)

My life was no longer my own. I couldn’t work (the loud noise in my ears was making it impossible to deal with my myriad of responsibilities at the office); I was short tempered with my family (after all, didn’t they realize that every little noise they made aggravated analready precarious situation?); my health was suffering (I couldn’t eat or sleep normally); and I was growing more and more depressed. I was reaching my breaking point and I knew it. Something had to be done and it had to be done quickly or I was going to lose my mind. It was time to take action!

I took a few weeks off of work. I switched several doctors and complained about the stabbing pulsing sounds and other symptoms I was experiencing. But the only answer I got was that surgery was my only option. Unbelievable I thought, only to later find out that in the vast majority of cases, surgeries are completely unnecessary and can often lead to irreversible results. Deep down, I felt there must have been another option, ahealthier alternative. Learn how Thomas Coleman eliminated his Tinnitus entirely with natural means...

Twenty four years ago, when I was 30, I weighted 185 pounds, I suffered from chronic fatigue and I was sick most of the time with one thing or another. I was also a victim of the never-ending flow of propaganda from the medical establishment (which I think of as the "disease" establishment because they focus on disease rather than on prevention and wellness) who wants to maintain a monopoly on the word "cure" and who wants us to believe that we have no control over our own health and that our only hope to get "well" is with drugs, surgery and radiation. When I turned to holistic health therapy, I lost 60 pounds in 3 months effortlessly. (and never had to struggle again to keep my weight down) andmy energy level and stamina improved dramatically. I was able to function better overall. I became calmer, centered and focused, and generally I felt happier and became muchhealthier.

Hair Loss / Baldness / Alopecia

Human hair varies widely in texture, color, thickness and distribution. It is a sensitive tissue, prone to loss or balding (alopecia). Alopecia universalis is a rare condition of total body hair loss. Alopecia areata is loss of hair in patches. Toxic alopecia is a common cause of hair loss, usually temporary and following serious illness, fever, pregnancy, various drugs (especially those used in chemotherapy) or overdoses of vitamin A. The most common cause of hair loss is androgenic alopecia or male-pattern baldness, which varies in pattern and severity.

Normal hair grows in cycles. Anagen is the active growing phase, catagen is a brief phase when growth slows down, and telogen is a resting dormant phase, where hair falls out, hopefully to be replaced in the next anagen phase. Research shows a positive correlation between GSH content and the percentage of anagen hairs present in a scalp sample, concluding that glutathione helps maintain the hair growth cycle. Researchers theorize that free radical formation plays a role in male pattern baldness. It is possible to measure the breakdown products of oxidative stress in bald and hairy areas of the scalp. The values are doubled in the balding areas. And correspondingly, hairy areas have almost three times as much glutathione.

In male-pattern baldness, androgens (male hormones) target hair follicles, which convert them into even stronger hormones. The unfortunate result is that hair growth slows or stops. M.E. Sawaya at the University of Miami showed that the conversion of these hormones can be influenced by glutathione, suggesting that GSH plays a protective role. Age-related GSH losses in human hair follicles is part of the total body glutathione depletion described in chapter 6 on aging. Working at the L'Oreal research lab, M. Kermici measured follicular GSH activity in men and women ranging in age from 19 to 102 years and found a significant decline up until about age seventy, then a slower second decline.

For many patients one of the more distressing side effects of cancer chemotherapy is hair loss. Rapidly growing cells such as hair cells and intestinal lining cells are the most sensitive to chemo-toxins, which quickly lead to temporary hair loss, and also cause diarrhea and cramps. Elevated GSH levels help protect these cells from chemotherapeutic agents and diminish their unfortunate side-effects. The GSH precursor NAC enhances the tumor-killing effect of the drug doxorubicin on skin cancer in the lab, but also completely prevents the hair loss that normally accompanies this treatment. Other researchers have produced similar hair protective effects using NAC in cyclophosphamide and cytarabine chemotherapy.

The Role of Glutathione GSH in Health, Disease and Aging In People and Animals
Glutathione in the Human Male

From the American Institute of Preventive Medicine: "Most men and women experience hair loss as they get older; indeed, most men have some degree of baldness by age 60. This is quite normal and affects some persons more than others, especially if baldness runs in the family. Sudden or abnormal hair loss could, however, result from:

  • Taking certain medications (like some used in treating cancer, circulatory disorders, ulcers or arthritis)
  • Following a crash diet
  • Hormonal changes such as with menopause or andropause
  • A prolonged or serious illness
  • Some medical conditions lead to hair loss such as Hypothyroidism and ringworm (the latter is a fungal infection that affects the scalp and/or the hairs themselves)
