"You have turned my life around"
 

I am 87 years old, with a problem of the prostate gland. Before I met Dr. Baum, I went to the bathroom every 30-60 minutes. After Dr. Baum's treatment on my prostate, I go only 5 times per day and only 1 time at night! You turned my life around. I am so very grateful!

-Sidney Daigle


I want to thank you for your due diligence. You saved my life. I highly recommend you!

-Dwight Bastian


Thank you Dr. Baum! Because of you I'm back in the "rodeo"!

-Gerald Wallace

Flossing your teeth may just be protective against prostate diseases. A recent report from dental researches showed that flossing may not only decrease heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, and even Alzheimer's disease. And now prostate disease can be added to that list. For more information check out my blog.

Green tea may lower the risk of prostate cancer and slow the progress of tumors. Research suggests a compound in the tea causes lower levels of a protein linked to prostate cancer.
A recent American study showed that men diagnosed with prostate cancer that hadn't spread outside of the prostate gland were given six cups of green tea a day for three to six weeks before undergoing surgical removal of the prostate gland. The other group or the control group received only hot water before their surgery to remove the prostate gland.
The researchers then examined the tissue that had been removed for levels of a compound known as epigallocatechin-3-gallate.
This compound was only found in the tea drinkers and not in the prostate glands of men drinking only the hot water. Blood tests also indicated the tea drinkers had lower levels of proteins connected to the growth and spread of prostate cancer. It is thought the compound, epigallocatechin-3-gallate, has an antioxidant effect, mopping up damaging free radicals.
Bottom Line: If you have prostate cancer, you might consider placing green tea on your table as your beverage of choice.


Did you know that 40% of patients don't take their medications as prescribed and this often times results in a hospital admission or a complication. Often times this is a result of forgetting to take medications or failure to have prescriptions refilled in a timely fashion. This article will discuss several techniques that anyone can use to help them to remember to properly take their medications. For more information go to my website, www.neilbaum.com, and look at the "new articles" and find out how to be a good patient and take your medications properly.


Perhaps tomatoes, which is a source of selenium, and Vitamin E may prevent prostate cancer. And perhaps not! What's the latest thinking on antioxidants, like vitamin E and selenium, and prostate cancer prevention?
At least in the test tube, Vitamin E, might inhibit the growth of cancer cells. A clinical study giving men 200 mcg of selenium, or 400 IU of vitamin E, a combination of both, or a placebo showed that men taking the supplements were no less likely to have prostate cancer than those taking the placebo.
Another study that included physicians taking Vitamin E and Vitamin C found that a diagnosis of prostate cancer or cancer in general was just as common among people taking vitamin E or C as it was among those taking a placebo.
Bottom Line: it appears that no single agent is likely to prevent prostate cancer. My advice is that men should not take antioxidant supplements in hopes of preventing prostate cancer.

 


Most men who have symptoms of low testosterone levels such as decreased libido (sex drive), erectile dysfunction, lethargy, and loss of muscle mass who used testosterone gel every day had their testosterone levels restored to normal and experienced benefits over time. These benefits included:
- Improvement in energy, sexual desire, sexual function, and mood within 1 month
- More muscle mass and decreased body fat within 3 months
- Increased bone strength within 6 months in patients receiving 10 grams of AndroGel daily
However, once you stop using testosterone gel, it is likely your testosterone levels will fall below normal in just 5 days and your symptoms may come back.

Your Goal with Treatment
Low testosterone is a medical condition that likely won't go away on its own. There is typically no cure for low testosterone levels. The goal of treating low testosterone is to raise your blood level of testosterone and to keep the level in a normal range. Once your testosterone reaches a normal level and remains there, symptom relief may follow.
