How Biotherapy Alternative Medicine Clinic can help people with Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH)
BPH (benign prostatic hyperplasia) is a non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate, eventually pinching off the urethra. Symptoms may include frequent nighttime urination; pain in the perineum; urgent, painful, frequent, burning urination; straining to start urination; a feeble urinary stream; dribbling urine, impotence; and premature ejaculation. As much as 98 percent of BPH – prostate enlargement is combined with some kind of the inflammation-chronic prostatitis.
It is estimated that half of all men have BPH in their 50s and as many as 90% of men will feel the discomfort as they reach 70s. BPH is called a silent disease because it doesn’t always causes pain, men commonly don’t feel its progression and men won’t willingly talk about it even to close friends.
We believe in a comprehensive holistic approach to BPH (benign prostatic hyperplasia) and enlarged prostate that involves a few steps:
The first step is to lessen “congestion” in the lower pelvis area, to improve the blood and energy flow to the prostate region. It can be done by acupuncture, therapeutic prostate massage and cleansing and gentle warming of the prostate area.
Therapeutic prostate massage milks out the congested fluid (in the same way that a sponge is emptied when it is squeezed), opens passages, shrinks, and cleanses the prostate gland. Decreasing the amounts of congested, inflamed, and toxic fluids inside the prostate is the primary factor in prevention and treatment of prostatitis, BPH. Studies have shown that prostatitis has been found in 98% of patient with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). That’s why; in many situations where prostate is congested Prostate Massage (aka Prostatic Massage, prostate milking) may be very helpful.
Prostate massage has been used for the hundreds of years for improving sex and for treating the prostate gland, especially in Western European, Russian, Israeli, and Philippine medicine. We, at Biotherapy Clinic, are the only place in San Francisco Bay Area that performs professional Prostatic Massage for medicinal purposes only. Before doing the Prostate Massage, you will be checked by a medical doctor and asked for your medical data and any tests you have undergone, especially the PSA (prostate-specific antigen). Prostate Massage is a medical procedure and performed here for medicinal purposes only. Your safety and well-being are very important to us. Before a treatment, a medical doctor will check you. For the evaluation, you will be referred to a medical doctor or bring a referral slip from your primary care physician.

In addition, prostatic massage eliminates adhesions and stimulates blood flow to improve microcirculation. In turn, the prostate receives more blood, oxygen, vital nutrients, and white blood cells to fight infections. Less toxic, congested fluid inside the prostate is a harmless and efficient way to avoid cancer in the future. Researchers reveal possible links between inflammation and prostate cancer.
Digital prostate massage improves the urinary stream, reduces other symptoms associated with prostate infection, brings about a return to a more normal prostate size and shape, and causes the softening and shrinking of the enlarged prostate. Prostate massage, accompanied by massage of the muscles surrounding the prostate, eliminates blockages while encouraging the free flow of blood and energy.

Proponents of Eastern medicine believe that a vital life energy, called qi (pronounced “chee”), flows through the body along 14 primary channels known as meridians. When qi is blocked or unbalanced, disease can result. For healing prostate enlargement, – BPH, very fine acupuncture needles will be inserting into the skin to stimulate various points along the meridians that affect the prostate area. Most patients at Biotherapy Clinic find an acupuncture treatment session profoundly peaceful and relaxing.
By the way, have no fear that needles will be inserted into any sensitive areas, the acupuncture points on the body that heal the genitals are not on or even near the penis! These points may be on the lower stomach, arms, and ears or in the area around the ankles.
The second step is healing food consultation to modify the diet. It has been known for thousands of years that food is the best medicine. Just like certain foods can aggravate your condition, certain foods and proper food combining are aimed at improving the natural health of the enlarged prostate.
The third step is Nutritional Supplementation and Herbal Medicine which aid in prostate function. Several herbs have been studied and used extensively in prostate conditions to promote shrinking the prostate enlargement. The results frequently were less residual urine after voiding, fewer nighttime visits to the bathroom, stronger stream, and better sexual life.
At the Biotherapy Clinic, we have a potent, lab tested and well resourced nutritional supplementation program including antioxidants, minerals and microelements, herbal medicine, vitamins, amino acids, essential fatty acids, enzymes, and probiotics (friendly intestinal flora). We have the unique combination of these products for different kinds of prostate enlargement – BPH syndrome to customize patients’ needs.
For example, our herbal formula Damp Water safely removes pathogenic micro-organisms from the body, naturally promotes kidney function, eliminates dangerous toxins and cleanses the genitourinary tract.
Super Saw Palmetto/ Nettle Root Formula with Beta-Sitosterol and boron has been standardized to contain 85-95% free fatty acids and sterols, the level recommended by researchers. The ingredient, beta-sitosterol interferes with the formation of prostaglandins that cause swelling in the prostate. Beta-sitosterol also lowers cholesterol which is important since high cholesterol levels can cause prostatic hyperplasia.
We have had great results with Karlovy Vary Healing Mineral Water made from the Genuine Karlovy Vary Thermal Spring Salt.
Used for centuries by generations of Europeans, this unique supplement decreases the level of inner toxicity of the body, supplies more than 40 vital electrolytes (potassium, calcium, magnesium, etc.) and microelements (zinc, cobalt, iron, chromium, etc), normalizes acid/alkaline balance, helps eliminate intestinal parasites and their eggs, and improves the function of the intestines, kidneys, and liver, the most important organs responsible for toxin removal and body waste. Drinking Karlovy Vary Healing Mineral Water has a long history in the treatment of chronic urinal tract infections, kidney and bladder stones, BPH and chronic prostatitis.
The water possesses anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, and anti-fungal properties and can promote filtering metabolic waste products throughout the kidneys. According to the ongoing longitudinal research study, Czech doctors discovered that urine pH levels were elevated to normal levels in people with acidic urine, a very good indication demonstrating that the body was less acidic. Alkalinizing urine shows significant symptomatic relief in man suffering from chronic prostatitis and urinal tract infections. Another advantage to alkalinizing the urine is that many herbs used to heal BPH, urinary tract infections work most efficiently in an alkaline environment.
In Biotherapy Alternative Medicine Clinic, we use Prostate Inflammation Kit for chronic prostatitis after use of antibiotics with pain, sex, BPH and urination disorders, for urgent, frequent urination, especially at night.
We will teach you also special healing exercises, which promote the shrinking of the prostate gland. Diet for prostate health and restoration of the beneficial intestinal bacteria are essential for BPH.
We have 30 years of the experience with non-drug, natural, alternative medicine ways of healing the prostatic disorders.
