Prostate Problems and Nettles
Prostate Problems A large percentage of men over 50 will suffer problems with an enlarged Prostate. Symptoms vary from excessive urination, trouble passing urine and erectile dysfunction, along with various aches and pains around the groin area. Most people visit their GP to get treatment for this sometime excruciating painful condition. In their sixties my father and his two brothers all suffered from complete urination blockage, which is extremely painful and dangerous which can badly damage your kidneys as the urine backs up all the way back to your kidneys, which can prove fatal. All three were hospitalised and operated on, my dad’s brothers were diagnosed with Prostate Cancer and had their Prostate removed. My dad had a simple operation to open up the tube that was blocked by the enlarged Prostate. I had always assumed that this Prostate problem would eventually visit me, as it seemed genetic in our family. My assumptions proved quite correct a few months ago. It started with me having no strength of flow as I passed urine, and increased frequency in having to urinate. It got worse and I had to get up a couple of times in the night causing me sleep problems. I researched online for natural herbal treatments. I already knew about the herbs Saw Palmetto and Pumpkin Seed Oil which had proved helpful to some people as a food supplement that relieved their symptoms, I obtained both herbs and did get relief from them, but something did not seem quite right, my wife came across an article saying Nettle Root soaked in 40% proof Vodka, for at least 2 weeks is useful for the problems I was suffering. I started taking a teaspoon of our homemade tincture 3 times a day, allowing the tincture to sit under my tongue so it was easily absorbed into the body. It seems to be working very well and I have regained full urine flow. I will continue to take the Nettle Root Tincture for a few months and then stop and see if everything is OK without it. I strongly believe in treating my health problems with Herbal rather than Pharmaceutical products, I have been doing this for years, I am not endorsing what I am doing, and would encourage anyone suffering from health problems to contact their GP and other medical advisors, and get yourself checked out.
