This is a follow up to my last post abut the loss of libido in men. One of the most dangerous side effects of lowered testosterone and libido, is the effect it has on the prostate.
The prostate is a walnut-sized gland located between the bladder and the penis. The prostate is just in front of the rectum. The urethra runs through the center of the prostate, from the bladder to the penis, letting urine flow out of the body. The prostate secretes fluid that nourishes and protects sperm. During ejaculation, the prostate squeezes this fluid into the urethra, and it’s expelled with sperm as semen. The vasa deferentia (singular: vas deferens) bring sperm from the testes to the seminal vesicles. The seminal vesicles contribute fluid to semen during ejaculation.
Negative prostate Conditions
- Prostatitis: Inflammation of the prostate, sometimes caused by infection. It is typically treated with antibiotics.
- Enlarged prostate: Called benign prostatic hypertrophy or BPH, prostate growth affects virtually all men over 50. Symptoms of difficult urination tend to increase with age. Medicines or surgery can treat BPH.
- Prostate cancer: It’s the most common form of cancer in men, but only one in 41 men die from prostate cancer. Surgery, radiation, hormone therapy, and chemotherapy can be used to treat prostate cancer. Some men choose to delay treatment, which is called watchful waiting.
- Digital rectal examination (DRE): A doctor inserts a lubricated, gloved finger into the rectum and feels the prostate. A DRE can sometimes detect an enlarged prostate, lumps or nodules of prostate cancer, or tenderness from prostatitis.
- Prostate-specific antigen (PSA): The prostate makes a protein called PSA, which can be measured by a blood test. If PSA is high, prostate cancer is more likely, but an enlarged prostate can also cause a high PSA. Recommendations about whether or not a man should be screened and at what age differ. Talk with your doctor about whether you need testing and the potential benefits and risks.
- Prostate ultrasound (transrectal ultrasound): An ultrasound probe is inserted into the rectum, bringing it close to the prostate. Ultrasound is often done with a biopsy to test for prostate cancer.
- Prostate biopsy: A needle is inserted into the prostate to take tissue out to check for prostate cancer. This is usually done through the rectum.
Some years ago, I had a Maltese co-worker ( he gets mad if you call him Italian) volunteered that he had recently had a prostate test done. At the time he was around thirty years old. I inquired if thirty wasn’t a bit young to start worrying about his prostate and he answered that it was never too late. I thought he was a victim of media propaganda and scare tactics, but never the less, if he felt the urge to take the test, who was I to interfere? Then I asked how the test was done. I was told by a brother about 10-15 years before that about getting a test and I didn’t like the method at all. Maltese dude told me there was only two ways (at the time) to do the test. Sit in a chair, with your knees up around your ears and make your anus available to the probing fingers of a doctor. Or “assuming the position” by lean against the wall, in the classic police search technique. Being a man with a virgin anus, I emphatically told him, that I guess I will die of prostate cancer. Of course he though I was being foolish about allowing some strange man ( or even woman ) stick a finger up my butt hole. But I come from a different stock than some of you suckers out there.
As I become firmly planted in that age group that are susceptible for prostate illness, I decided to do my research. Hence the information around lowered testosterone and libido. You see, we in the so-called civilized part of the world suffer from ill-health, due to western corporation, altering and interrupting our food chain. They compound this with the immense amount of pressure they force us to endure in our every day life. Stress is a major part of our lives and its closer to us than Jesus for some people.

While regular physical activity, relaxation techniques such as deep breathing, meditation, yoga, Tai Chi or regular full body message can help to reduce stress for a short period, it is not enough or not sustainable, if the cause of stress remains. Not even keeping a sense of humour, socializing with people you enjoy being around or setting aside quiet time, however it looks, there will always be some asshole coming around to interrupt your vibe. Whether its your work environment, the stress of daily commute, daily media or government bull shit, that affects your mood, or even your significant other, stress continues to be our shadow as long as we continue to remain in this poisonous laboratory environment called western civilization. The effects of stress hormone has a duel result. Firstly stress causes the body to release the hormone cortisol, which is produced by the adrenal glands. Cortisol is important to blood pressure regulation and the normal functioning of several body systems including cardiovascular, circulatory and male reproduction. In certain instances, limited stress which causes the release of cortisol assist a man in a “fight or flight moment” or in some feat of physical activity such as sports participation or mild to heavy work out. Excessive stress however is debilitating and leaves the body in constant deficit of proteins, vitamins and other minerals necessary for vital health. One of the ways men place stress on their bodies is with constant ejaculation.
When you’re constantly achieving the big O, that reproductive assembly line becomes overworked, and your prostate becomes inflamed. That inflammation is known as prostatitis. Symptoms include prostate exhaustion, prostate pain, and urinary incontinence, just to name a few. To make matters worse, doctors have found that prostatitis is a leading cause of premature ejaculation. Sexual over-stimulation causes a release of excess DHT (a testosterone byproduct), which causes organs to become over-stimulated. Ejaculation is the discharge of semen from the male reproductory tract, usually accompanied by orgasm. It is the final stage and natural objective of male sexual stimulation, and an essential component of natural conception. Endocrine disruptors are chemicals that can interfere with endocrine systems at certain doses. These disruptions can cause cancerous tumors, birth defects, and other developmental disorders. Any system in the body controlled by hormones can be derailed by hormone disruptors. Specifically, endocrine disruptors may be associated with the development of learning disabilities, severe attention deficit disorder, cognitive and brain development problems; deformations of the body; breast cancer, prostate cancer, thyroid and other cancers; sexual development problems such as feminizing of males or masculinizing effects on females, etc.
By adding these foods to your diet, you are giving your body the nutrients needed to heal your adrenals naturally. To help reduce further stress on the adrenal glands, consider a low-sugar diet and one sufficient in protein, unsaturated fats and complex carbohydrates. Try to eat smaller, meals throughout the day as over eating is a major cause of an over worked digestive system. Also avoid white flour, white sugar ( anything white), sodas, refined foods, caffeine, alcohol, smoking and environmental toxins. Learn to relax, avoid stress and exercise regularly; moderate exercise helps stimulate the adrenal glands. In addition, milk thistle extract aids in liver function, which in turn helps adrenal function,. Always consult a qualified expert before taking any herbs or supplements. Finally and this is the big one. MEN STOP EJACULATING EXCESSIVELY. While environmental stress is unavoidable under white pathology and it is extremely hard to manage a good eating pattern unless you live on a farm somewhere in the |Caribbean, South of amurdikkka or Afuraka, excess or over use of the sexual organ is one thing you have total control over. This means stop jerking off. Stop being over stimulated with excessive porn and if you do have sex, don’t be like a dog in heat, jumping on every available kitty kat you think you can dick down. Besides the countless negative energies you absorb into your body, over ejaculation as stated deplete the body of its minerals. I cant say this enough. Every time you ejaculate, your basically take from your life. The body is so adaptable that even under undue stress, it compensates by pulling extra minerals from parts of itself. The first place it takes mineral from is the skeletal system. Eventually, it will start eye balling the soft tissues of the organs, until you eventually fall of the side-walk, leaving people wondering how come such a “healthy” person up and died so suddenly.
It won’t happen overnight, but the gradation will be so subtle, that by the time your prostate swells up and gets cancerous. By the time your Adrenals shrink and by the time and your hormones are so out of whack, over ejaculation will be the last thing you will think about. Practice short-term abstinence if you can. Practice semen retention if you cannot. But know your sexual health. In the end you can be your own doctor and your body can be your own healing center.
