"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

If you have prostate cancer or if you want to prevent prostate cancer, you will want to read this article about what is known about diet and supplements and the relationship to prostate cancer.

Everyone with prostate cancer who goes on the Internet receives information about green tea preventing prostate cancer, that pomegranate juice can be consumed to lower the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) and advice on consuming broccoli and cauliflower.  So what is a man to do?

Numerous studies have been conducted that have looked at vitamin E, selenium, vitamin C and combinations of these 3 supplements. There has been no conclusive study that any of these supplements or vitamins reduce the risk of prostate cancer or prevented the recurrence of prostate cancer.

However there are compelling data supporting the therapeutic potential of a high vegetable diet for prostate cancer. Red meat and fat tend to be associated with increased risk of prostate cancer while broccoli, cauliflower and radishes and tomato products tend to be associated with decreasing the risk of prostate cancer.

So here are my recommendations: 1) avoid supplements for cancer prevention, 2) maintain a diet rich in vegetables and whole grains, 3) limit red meat and refined or processed carbohydrates, and 4) be physically active at least 30 minutes a day.  So go to your grocery store and visit the vegetable counter and pass up the bakery area!  Your prostate gland will thank you!


Scientists are reporting the first evidence that consumption of a healthful antioxidant substance in apples extends the average lifespan of test animals, and does so by 10 percent. The new results, obtained with fruit flies – stand-ins for humans in hundreds of research projects each year – bolster similar findings on apple antioxidants in other animal tests. The study appears in ACS’s Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry.

Zhen-Yu Chen and colleagues note that damaging substances generated in the body, termed free radicals, cause undesirable changes believed to be involved in the aging process and some diseases. Substances known as antioxidants can combat this damage. Fruits and vegetables in the diet, especially brightly colored foods like tomatoes, broccoli, blueberries, and apples are excellent sources of antioxidants. A previous study with other test animals hinted that an apple antioxidant could extend average lifespan. In the current report, the researchers studied whether different apple antioxidants, known as polyphenols, could do the same thing in fruit flies.  (This is particularly good news for fruit flies. If I were a fruit fly I would want to live longer too.)

The researchers found that apple polyphenols not only prolonged the average lifespan of fruit flies but helped preserve their ability to walk, climb and move about. In addition, apple polyphenols reversed the levels of various biochemical substances found in older fruit flies and used as markers for age-related deterioration and approaching death. Chen and colleagues note that the results support those from other studies, including one in which women who often ate apples had a 13-22 percent decrease in the risk of heart disease, and polish the apple’s popular culture image as a healthy food.

When To Seek Medical Care for Overactive Bladder
Approximately 33 million Americans are affected by overactive bladder -- a common bladder control problem in which a frequent and intense urge to urinate may be accompanied by wetting accidents. Contrary to popular belief, men are just as likely as women to develop overactive bladder, although women are more likely to experience wetting accidents.
How to tell if you have overactive bladder. If you answer yes to one or more of the following questions, speak to your doctor about overactive bladder. Your doctor may refer you to a urologist for more detailed testing to determine if you do in fact have overactive bladder.
Overactive bladder questions:
Do you urinate more than eight times in a 24-hour period?
Do you go to the bathroom so frequently that it interferes with the things you want to do?
Do you have to get up two or more times at night to go to the bathroom?
Do you frequently have strong, sudden urges to urinate?
Do you have uncontrollable urges to urinate that sometimes result in wetting yourself?
Do you use pads to protect your clothing from wetting?
When you go out, do you make sure you know the location of available bathrooms?
Do you avoid certain places if you think there won't be an available bathroom?

 

Bottom Line: If you answered yest to any of these quesitons, you should check with with your doctor. Help is available. You don't need to be a prisioner held hostage in the restroom.

 

From John Hopkins Health Newsletter, 2-22-11


Women often live with overactive bladder, stress incontinence, bladder weakness, leaking bladder, or the constant urge to urinate without seeking help from their doctors. Urinary incontinence and the problems that accompany bladder weakness -- constantly having to interrupt visits, wanting to stay at home near a bathroom -- may leave sufferers feeling isolated or depressed. They may feel so embarrassed that they don't even want to bring up the subject with their doctors, or they may believe it's a result of the aging process that can't be fixed.

While aging and menopause may contribute to stress incontinence, overactive bladder, or general bladder weakness, loss of bladder control is very common, treatable, and sometimes even curable. You can also help ward off complications of urinary incontinence -- like the development of bladder and kidney infections -- by seeking help from your doctor.

Now there is a free and reliable source of information about overactive bladder, stress incontinence, and bladder weakness. 5 keys to manage a leaking bladder or overactive bladder for women over 50 is a free publication from the editors of VibrantNation.com that provides the accurate and trustworthy information for proven relief from bladder control issues.

Many women experience overactive bladder, stress incontinence, or bladder weakness issues during menopause. Some experts theorize that estrogen plumps the lining of the bladder and urethra, and that lack of estrogen could contribute to bladder weakness. Pressure from coughing, sneezing, or lifting can push urine through the weakened muscle. This kind of leakage, called stress incontinence, is one of the most common kinds of bladder control problems in older women.

According to the National Association for Continence, one in five adults over 40 are affected by overactive bladder and women wait an average of 6.5 years to see a doctor for their overactive bladder, stress incontinence, or bladder weakness issues. While there are several medical solutions to consider, this report from Vibrant Nation addresses the most common fixes and ways to cope with a leaking bladder or overactive bladder, including surprising facts about foods and drinks that irritate your bladder, how to ensure you do Kegel exercises correctly, and how to train your bladder.
