Erectile Dysfunction (ED)
Erectile dysfunction (ED) or impotence is sexual dysfunction characterized by the inability to develop or maintain an erection of the penis during sexual performance. A penile erection is the hydraulic effect of blood entering and being retained in sponge-like bodies within the penis. The process is often initiated as a result of sexual arousal, when signals are transmitted from the brain to nerves in the penis.
At our holistic center we offer a very effective treatment combining micro-current therapy, acupuncture and special herbs.
Male infertility refers to the inability of a male to achieve a pregnancy in a fertile female. In humans it accounts for 40-50% of infertility. Male infertility is commonly due to deficiencies in the semen and semen quality.
A gland (about the size and shape of a walnut) within the male reproductive system that is located just below the bladder. The prostate surrounds the beginning of the urethra, the canal that empties the bladder. Nestled in the man’s pubic bone and surrounded by the pelvic muscles, the prostate gland will respond to pressure applied through the rectum.
Prostate dysfunction has been called a nutritional disease. It is much more common in developed Western countries that emphasize animal-derived foods, such as red meat, dairy products, and eggs, all foods that tend to accumulate environmental toxins. In contrast, fruit- and vegetable-rich diets exert a protective effect.
What Can Be Done?
Antibiotics may not help nonbacterial prostatitis. You may have to work with your doctor to find a treatment that’s good for you. Changing your diet or taking warm baths may help. Your doctor may give you a medicine called an alpha blocker to relax the muscle tissue in the prostate. No single solution works for everyone with this condition. Asymptomatic inflammatory prostatitis is the diagnosis when the patient does not complain of pain or discomfort but has infection-fighting cells in his semen. Doctors usually find this form of prostatitis when looking for causes of infertility or testing for prostate cancer.
At our center we treat successfully prostate related problems using micro-current therapy and German herbs.
Types of Prostate Problems
From birth to young adulthood, the prostate grows from about the size of a pea to about the size of a walnut. Most men experience a second period of prostate growth in their mid- to late 40s. As tissues in the area enlarge, they often compress the urethra and partially block urine flow. Benign prostatic hyperplasia is the medical term for this condition. The presence or absence of prostate gland enlargement is not related to the development of prostate cancer. Treatment depends on your signs and symptoms and may include medications, surgery or nonsurgical therapies
Acute bacterial prostatitis:
The least common of the four types but also the easiest to diagnose and treat effectively. Men with this disease often have chills, fever, pain in the lower back and genital area, urinary frequency and urgency often at night, burning or painful urination, body aches, and a demonstrable infection of the urinary tract as evidenced by white blood cells and bacteria in the urine. The treatment is an appropriate antibiotic.
Chronic bacterial prostatitis:
Relatively uncommon, acute prostatitis is associated with an underlying defect in the prostate, which becomes a focal point for bacterial persistence in the urinary tract. Effective treatment usually requires identifying and removing the defect and then treating the infection with antibiotics. However, antibiotics often do not cure this condition.
Chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome:
The most common but least understood form of prostatitis. It is found in men of any age, its symptoms go away and then return without warning, and it may be inflammatory or noninflammatory. In the inflammatory form, urine, semen, and other fluids from the prostate show no evidence of a known infecting organism but do contain the kinds of cells the body usually produces to fight infection. In the noninflammatory form, no evidence of inflammation, including infection-fighting cells, is present.
The Holistic Approach to the Prostate
Controlled studies indicate psychological factors, such as anxiety and depression, occur more frequently in men with prostate problems. This may be because psychological factors contribute to the development of non-bacterial prostate problems, or perhaps they occur as a result of prostatitis. Nonetheless Stress Reduction may help reduce symptoms in these cases.
Micro Current Therapy:
Microcurrent Therapy uses extremely small amounts of electrical current (millionths of an amp). Since Microcurrent Therapy mimics the body’s electrical fields it is helpful in relieving pain and stimulating the healing of soft tissues of the prostate.
These are simple electronic devices which measure and report information about a person’s biological system as well as other treatments aimed at reducing chronic pain. This suggests that some of the causes of specific prostate conditions may be neuromuscular. In support of this idea, relaxation of smooth muscles reported to reduce symptoms and/or recurrence rates in men with prostate issues.
Acupressure stimulates the body’s immune system to self-heal, in addition to causing relief of muscular tension and the release of endorphins – the body’s own neurochemicals that relieve pain. This technique is an excellent way to balance the body and maintain good health of prostate by using acupressure therapy on the specific prostate perineum point it reducing tension, increasing endorphins, improving circulation and strengthening the body’s resistance to illness.
The effectiveness of acupuncture therapy was reported to be moderate in 70% and excellent in 30% of the chronic prostatitis patients treated.
