A man’s worst nightmare …got prostate problems?
If you’re male and over fifty you know what we’re talking about when we say that we’ve all sat in our doctor’s office—somewhat nervously—waiting for the results of the dreaded digital rectal examination. Fortunately, in the vast majority of cases the patient receives a clean bill of health, breathes a sigh of relief, and continues on with their lives. But, if you happen to be one of the unfortunate ones, you’ll know that this is not going to be a good day when your doctor removes his gloves, turns to you with a concerned look on his face and informs you that he’ll need to do more blood testing or worse, that he wants to schedule you for a biopsy.
Okay, admittedly, receiving a less than favorable health report can be unsettling, but sheer panic is probably an over-reaction! So, before you assume the worse, rush to finalize your will and give away all of your worldly possessions, let’s consider some of the other possibilities…
You could be suffering from Prostate Enlargement also known as Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy or Prostatitis, which is inflammation of the prostate gland that’s usually caused by bacterial infection that has spread from the urethra.
Typically when your prostate is enlarged you’ll have symptoms like: difficulty starting urination, weak urinary flow, frequent urination, severe lower abdominal pain and the ability to pass only a few drops of urine (a condition known as Acute Urinary Retention).
Another possibility is that you’re suffering from Prostatitis or inflammation of the prostate gland that is usually caused by an infection that may or may not be sexually transmitted. There is also increased risk of infection for patients who wear urinary catheters.
You’ll be happy to know that Chinese Herbal Therapy has an excellent track record when it comes to treating these conditions (Enlarged Prostate as well as Prostatic Inflammation) using powerful herbal formulas that unlike conventional Western medical treatment, have zero side-effects and do not require surgery! They are Ba Zheng Pills and Xiao Ji Yin Zi Tang; which can be used separately or taken together for a stronger treatment approach. Long-term use of these formulas is safe, effective and highly recommended. Use the below links to access more information on these formulas.
In spite of the unpleasantness of the procedure, never underestimate the importance of undergoing an examination to confirm your diagnosis—since there has been some speculation concerning a relationship between the two conditions discussed and prostate cancer.
