Saw palmetto for prostate health?

Let’s find why prostate health is important.

Precisely, it usually indicates ‘lower urinary tract symptom’ when it comes to people concerning about prostate health. It also commonly covers any urinary system related symptoms regardless gender difference. There are roughly three categories of LUTS:

  1. Storage Symptoms include frequent daytime urination, nocturia (frequent night time urination), sudden urination, and urinary incontinence.
  2. Urination Symptoms include thinning of the urine stream, hesitance in the urinary stream, dripping, the need for abdominal pressure, and the discontinuation of the urine stream.
  3. Post Urination Symptoms include the lingering sense of urine, and dripping.

The most frequently observed LUTS in men relates to the prostrate. Normal metabolism results in harmful bacteria, wastes, and toxic substances that need to leave the body as soon as possible. The longer they stay within the body, various health problems arise: lowered immune systems, lowered stamina, and a reduction in sexual drive.

LUTS in men is frequently caused by enlarged prostates, inflamed prostrates (prostatic hyperplasia), or prostrate cancer. Attention tends to be focused on the prostate when a male patient suffers from LUTS, and “LUTS” has become synonymous with “prostate problems”. Academics, however, have agreed that this approach is unscientific. Since 2000, LUTS has become the more common term used to diagnose a larger group of ailments and “prostate problems” have been considered a subset of the LUTS.

The Lower Urinary Tract is the system that forms the urine in the kidneys, stores it in the bladder, and excretes it. But the health of the lower urinary tract is directly related to the health of the body as a whole.

Proper excretion of waste is vital in the fight for good health, because the success of this function means toxins and possible causes of diseases are expelled from the body. In contrast, problems in this excretion can only mean harm for the body. It is akin to living in a city with a bad sewage system – it is hard to survive after a while.

Many cases of LUTS in men are attributed to poor prostate health. (However, there are many other causes. Focusing only on the prostate to treat LUTS can be harmful. This is one of the reasons saw palmetto can be a problem.) Women do not have prostates, and LUTS in women tend to be caused from a variety of other reasons. However, the treatment of LUTS in both men and women straight results in improvements in energy, concentration, and sexual health.

Let’s first discuss prostrate problems. This issue actually relates andropause (male menopause).

The prostate is a walnut sized organ (about 20g) covering the urethra from both sides, and sits below the bladder. It is a reproductive organ found only in men, and one of its functions is to produce semen. Just as women undergo changes in their reproductive organs during menopause, middle-aged men tend to experience inflamed prostates (prostatic hyperplasia).

According to the studies of health insurance companies, prostatic hyperplasia cases have increased over five fold in the last ten years. In Korea, five to ten percent of men in their thirties suffer from prostatic hyperplasia. The percentage rises to over 50% in men in their forties and fifties. For men over eighty, the percentage is 75%, and over 90% for men older than eighty five years.

The rise in prostatic hyperplasia has been attributed to an aging population (and thus a rise in those who are more susceptible to the condition), diabetes, insufficient zinc consumption, high cholesterol, over-consumption of animal fats, over-eating, and modern eating habits.

When the prostate is enlarged, it squeezes the urethra, and urine cannot flow out freely. When urine cannot completely leave the body, a condition called “urinary retention” can occur. This is a potentially fatal condition. It tends to happen during the winter months.

I personally knew two people who have died from urinary retention. They passed away before they could reach an emergency room. The condition is just that fatal.

In the beginning stages of prostatic hyperplasia, there is residual urine even after urination, and sometimes involuntary dripping after. If the condition further progresses, the urinary stream gradually decreases, as well as the amount of urine expelled. Sometimes there is a sudden need to urinate, urination becomes frequent, and happens during the night, interrupting sleeping patterns.

When urine remains in the bladder for too long, acute cystitis can occur, warranting a trip to the emergency 13 room. The whole point of urine is to expel the waste from our body. But when urine itself isn’t leaving the body, a slew of diseases can arise from this failure. Our body’s health is maintained by the timely excretion of waste in it. When this does not happen, it is no surprise that diseases follow.

How prostatic hyperplasia happens?

1. The problem begins with the dominance of female hormones over male hormones. This dominance is a natural occurrence with age, and can also arise from the use of harmful sun blocking agents. But the most common cause is diabetes and stress. Overweight men tend to show increased levels of female hormones. This is because fat cells transform male hormones into female hormones.

2. Another cause is zinc deficiency. Zinc has an immense effect of male sexual health, and is frequently called a “man’s mineral.” Zinc needs to be concentrated in the prostate at high levels. Zinc levels in prostate cells need to be 200 times the amount found in the blood stream. In prostatic fluid, zinc levels need to 600 times higher. Such high levels are necessary because zinc protects the genes in the semen from infection. But when the prostate is enlarged, zinc levels in the prostate falls to one tenth of normal amounts.

 There are foods rich in zinc: pumpkin seeds, oysters, whole grains, barley, sunflower seeds, eggs, and milk. But trying to get enough zinc from these foods is futile. For those afflicted with both diabetes and prostatic hyperplasia, it is crucial to take additional zinc supplements that have been scientifically proven to be safe: supplements such as Eleotin® Santorini.

 Let us now discuss the relationship between diabetes and the prostate. Diabetes is a main cause of prostatic hyperplasia. Also, prostatic hyperplasia is much more dangerous for diabetes patients. The chances of developing prostatic hyperplasia are 300% higher in diabetes patients. In a diabetes patient, the symptoms of prostatic hyperplasia begin eleven years earlier than in those who do not have diabetes. Urethritis also occurs more frequently in diabetes patients. 

 Prostate cancers are not generally considered fatal. But prostate cancers tend to go undiagnosed in diabetes patients. When the patient is finally diagnosed, it is frequently when malignant tumors have already spread throughout the body. As a result, the same prostate cancer that is curable for most people, can be fatal to diabetes patients.

 Both diabetes and prostatic hyperplasia are common occurrences in middle aged men. Either condition can cause and strengthen the other, making the presence of the two extremely dangerous. Furthermore, drugs that treats one condition can conflict with drugs that treat the other. For example, saw palmetto is commonly used for prostatic hyperplasia. But saw palmetto can conflict with drugs prescribed for diabetes, and result in harmful side effects. Saw palmetto itself can worsen diabetes. And a dangerous cycle begins: saw palmetto is used to treat prostatic hyperplasia. The saw palmetto worsens the diabetes, conflicts with the diabetes drugs, then further weakens the prostate as a result.

 Other drugs for prostatic hyperplasia also worsen diabetes. The worsened diabetes then worsens the prostate, and more drugs are needed. These drugs further deteriorate the diabetes, and the patient is trapped into a cycle from which he cannot escape.

 Almost without exception, drugs prescribed for prostatic hyperplasia destroys sexual functions. Sexual functions are weakened already with prostatic hyperplasia, but the drugs prescribed for the condition practically obliterate any remaining function.

 People with diabetes, obesity, or high cholesterol need to be careful about taking saw palmetto. It should be avoided as much as possible. If saw palmetto must be taken, it must be taken only after having taken Power Eleotin®, and insulin resistance is lowered.

Eleotin® Santorini

1. Eleotin® Santorini contains cranberry concentrated at a 20 to 1 ratio. The cranberry is sourced from a specially contracted farm in Canada, where the best cranberries in the world come from. Cranberries are valued for being rich in nutrients. But it is especially helpful by preventing various problematic bacteria from sticking to the lower urinary tract, and enabling the body to flush it away. Both men and women can benefit from taking Eleotin® Santorini for an extended period of time, and drinking plenty of water during this regime. The lower urinary tract will be generally cleansed (including the prostate for men), and the body in general will become healthier.

2. Eleotin® Santorini contains no saw palmetto. Diabetes patients do not need to worry about taking it for their lower urinary tracts.

3. Women may also take it with no side effects.

4. Eleotin® Santorini contains natural zinc extracted from oysters, and is readily absorbed by the body. There is no danger of absorbing too much.

5. Eastwood Companies produces natural diabetes treatment using technologies acquired from the most prestigious diabetes research centers around the globe. Eleotin® Santorini also contains other herbal elements used in other Eleotin® products. This not only means Eleotin® Santorini is safe for diabetes patients, but even helpful for soothing diabetes symptoms. It is the only known safe and natural treatment for the lower urinary tract that can be used for diabetes patients, and men and women alike.

6. Eleotin® Santorini can also be used by currently healthy people to prevent lower urinary tract symptoms from starting.

7. Eleotin® Santorini has a superior effect not only on prostate health, but all of the lower urinary tract symptoms discussed previously.
