Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia ( BPH) or enlargement of the Prostate Gland strikes more than 50% of all males over 50, most will have significant prostate enlargement and the rest of the male population over 50 will experience some discomfort.
It begins with urine flow that is hard to start, a weak or intermittent stream and a bladder that still feels partially full after urination.
Solutions range from surgery, drugs and dietary changes to nutritional therapy.
Surgery rarely produces any long term benefits, but seems to cause a lot of problems and distress.
Purpose of the Prostate
The prostate produces semen and secretes it into the urethra, the tube that runs from the bladder to the tip of the penis. The semen is the clear liquid that the sperm depends on for nourishment and to act as the vehicle to carry it out of the male body and to the intended target.
Problems commence when the prostate begins to enlarge, the prostate is a donut shaped gland that encircles the urethra, it squeezes on the urethra thus reducing the flow of urine, its enlargement is due to hormonal changes of old age.
Some dietary changes that are supposed to help are: weight loss, reduced intake of saturated fats, especially trans fatty acids, increased intake of fiber, essential fatty acids such as olive oil and flaxseed oil, also saw palmetto and zinc supplements.
Another treatment that shows great merit and can be performed at home is through the use of magnesium chloride (MC).
A world war one French Doctor by the name of Dr Joseph Favier discovered some amazing qualities of magnesium chloride which he called the Miracle Mineral.
Among many benefits he found from taking MC were its positive effects on the prostate gland.
He found that by giving magnesium tablets to patients with BPH he was significantly reducing their nocturnal urinations and not only that, after urination the urine retention problems were much reduced.
One patient who had complete urine retention and who was scheduled for operation was given four tablets (2grams) MC, spontaneous urination occurred, the operation was cancelled and the patient was subsequently sent home, the patient had no more trouble just as long as he continued to take MC.
Apparently it is difficult to overdose on MG as the body just dumps any surplus.
The author can certainly swear to the beneficial effect of (MC), I begin taking it about six years ago for this very same reason, the result was as Dr Favier stated, six years later and still taking (MC) daily, I have had no recurrence of any prostate problems, I am now 65 years old and when I urinate there is no hesitancy and definitely no retention whatsoever, as far as I am concerned, MC really works, also, sex is no problem.
Problems Some People Experienced After Prostate Removal.
Incontinence (urine leakage) Shrinkage of penis size. Inability to achieve an erection. (for some, erections never return) No ejaculation. No more natural (un-assisted) erections and certainly no more morning Glories. Most men who have undergone BPH surgery state: Sex is never the same again.
Magnesium Chloride is not readily available in health stores, for what reason I cannot guess, it is a common salt derived from sea water and cheap when you can find it, it is well worth the search. Magnesium Sulphate (Epsom salts) is not the same thing, nor does it work the same way. Nagari (Nigari) Flakes or Magnesium oil (liquid form) are both MC.
Magnesium oil is available in many health stores but expensive. Magnesium oil is just MC dissolved in hot distilled water until saturation point is reached (water will absorb no more magnesium chloride), Google magnesium Chloride flakes or Nagari Flakes which is Japanese for MC, find a supplier on the net, purchase and make your own magnesium oil. MC really is “The Magic Mineral”
Transdermal application, that is applying the MC oil to soft areas of the skin, such as underarms, thighs, belly etc is the best method of introducing magnesium into the body. Soft skin areas absorb MC much better than taking it by mouth as it by-passes the stomach and liver, going directly into the blood stream. The body in its own wisdom knows exactly where to send it to do the most good, if the Prostate needs magnesium, that is where it sends some, if the heart muscles need magnesium, it looks after that also. The Doctor within is a far better Doctor as it knows precisely what minerals, vitamins etc it needs intuitively, trust it, listen to it, it really does know best.
