Below the Belt: Prostate Fitness

Bold text

Other than Cancer, most men’s prostate concerns come from either Prostatitis or BPH-creating some very unlikeable symptoms:

  • Low back, hip or pelvic pain
  • Having the urge to pee but then having a hard time doing so,
  • Not being able to sleep because of needing to pee so often.
  • Worse yet-Erectile Dysfunction and Male Infertility!

As one of my doctors said recently, “Guys come into your office for 2 things-they can’t get it up or they can’t get it out”.

The prostate functions as a filter to protect the sperm from toxins, so it’s extremely susceptible to toxic influences including infection and pesticides. Men experience a higher prevalence of cystitis starting in their mid-50s and 60s when an enlarged prostate and obstruction of the urinary tract are more probable.

If you golf, much of the evidence on the risk of pesticides comes from studies that look at cancer risk in people who use pesticides in their work – for example, farmers, golf course workers, and pesticide manufacturers. The research shows that pesticide exposure, in general, is linked to several types of cancer such as non-Hodgkin lymphoma, multiple myeloma, and prostate, kidney, and lung cancers, among others.

Scary stuff! That being said, when managing ‘can’t get it up/can’t get it out’ matters, I’d rule out Microbial burden first. This would include:

  • Parasites-Toxoplasma Gondii
  • Viruses- HPV, Herpes, Cytomegalovirus, all STDs
  • Fungi
  • Bacteria- E Coli
  • GMO Agricultural exposure-especially pesticides found on golf courses

Any of the above microorganisms can initiate a ‘stealth strategy’ to insure their staying put inside of your body and doing massive damage. One of their ‘tricks’  is the destruction of Nitric Oxide levels. Nitric oxide is produced by nearly every type of cell in the human body and is one of the most important molecules for blood vessel health. It’s a vasodilator, meaning it relaxes the inner muscles of your blood vessels, causing the vessels to widen. In this way, nitric oxide increases blood flow and lowers blood pressure.

Interestingly, Pharmaceuticals most commonly prescribed for BPH are Alpha Blockers-very similar to Nitric Oxide. These work by relaxing muscles in your bladder and prostate, which makes it easier to pee. Flomax lowers blood pressure-acts similarly to Nitric Oxide-and this smooth muscle relaxation has been considered to improve urinary symptoms.

Now, you’ve got a very good reason to look at the larger picture, which is-  What is driving the lowered Nitric Oxide levels to begin with?

To better help understand why a Microbial or Pesticide Burden would deplete Nitric Oxide levels, please tune into my webinar, “Stealth Pathogens: Our Microbial Burden” available now on the website and YouTube channel. I continue my focus on Stealth Pathogens by weaving in the theme of Prostate Fitness in my webinar Below the Belt: Prostate Fitness.



In the time being, I urge you to consider MediHerb Artemisinin Cx and Myrrh Forte, both being anti-microbial, renal protective, and are herbal ‘stops signs’ for the destruction of Nitric Oxide.
