Male Prostate Health
The male prostate gland is the male version of the female uterus. It is a chestnut size gland that is located between the urinary tract, bladder, and rectum. It is made of both glandular and muscular tissue and is situated in the pelvic cavity, below the caudal part of the symphysis pubis and ventral to the rectum, through which it can be felt, especially when enlarged.
The English word "prostate" derives from the Greek word prostates which means standing before.
The prostate gland surrounds the neck of the bladder and the urethra and elaborates a secretion that liquefies coagulated semen. This liquid is known as prostatic fluid or "prostatic secretion" and consists of alkaline phosphatase, citric acid, and various proteolytic enzymes. It is this alkaline prostatic fluid that helps sperm survive in the acidic female vagina. Many times, because a female's vagina is very acidic and a male's sperm is very low alkaline (due to improper diet ñ meat, dairy, beer, drugs, cigarettes, etc.), a woman cannot become pregnant because male sperm (already low in alkalinity) cannot survive in the overly acidic vagina. The prostatic fluid is part of the semen (the fluid) that transports male sperm cells into the female during sexual intercourse and is believed to ensure the survival of the sperm once it enters the female vagina. Prostatic fluid is continuously produced. It is secreted into the urethra in abundant volume during sexual excitement and excreted in the urine at other times. Prostatic fluid does not enter the bloodstream, nor does the prostate gland itself produce any hormones that are required by the body.
Today, especially in America, prostate troubles and pathologies are notorious, especially in African-American males between the ages of 45-75. Many well known and accomplished African-American men have developed and dealt with prostate problems, from prostatitis to prostate cancer, including Earl Wood (Tiger Wood's father), Jesse Jackson, Sr., Minister Louis Farrakahn, Les Brown, Harry Belafonte, Nelson Mandela, and Rev. Cecil Chip Murray of First A.M.E. Church in Los Angeles, California.
The colon, when not kept clean, collects waste material and presses against the prostate and bladder and can cause irritation and infections. Waste material can also enter the bloodstream and cause weakness in the prostate. Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH), common in 1/3 of American men between the ages of 40-60 years old, is very common in American society today. The prostate becomes enlarged and presses against the urethral canal and this back up in the kidneys will obstruct the bladder outlet and cause retention of urine. Prostatitis (inflammation of the prostate) can block the flow of urine and cause frequent urination with a burning sensation, blood, and pus in the urine. Prostatitis is the result of too much acid in the prostate area stemming from a poor diet high in meats, dairy products and chicken eggs (ovum), beer and wine, sugar and salt, and cigarettes.
Anger, hate, stress, and deep resentments also contribute to prostate problems. Also, hatred and disrespect of females (misogyny and female sexism) plays a pivotal role in prostate pathologies, after all, the prostate is the male version of the female uterus and when males violate the female uterus, the negative karmanic energy comes back around and centers in the prostate gland and causes the prostate gland to atrophy.
Most males (and men) do not know it, but like the female uterus, the prostate gland is chiefly comprised and composed of the mineral zinc. Zinc is very crucial and critical to prostate health. Every time males or men ejaculate semen, they lose many precious minerals, mainly zinc, and because they are unconscious of this fact, they do not replenish their zinc content and other lost minerals, and this in turn causes poor eye-sight, unhealthy skin, brittle fingernails, hair fallout (alopecia), poor libido, and weakened and degenerate phallus; and ultimately results in prostate cancer.
For the conscious or aware males/men who practice or perform Kundalini Yoga, the kundalini (chi or energy) depends upon the seminal fluid to act as a conductor in much the same way that a battery requires some water in it for the electricity to flow properly. Ejaculation results in the dissipation of zinc, greatly needed by the kundalini.
Every time a man ejaculates semen, the prostate gland is affected. The very few wise men who fully understand conventional ejaculatory sex know it grossly exploits every gland and organ. With ejaculation, the internal pressure of life is expelled from the body, leaving behind in some sex-obsessed males and men only enough life force to fold the newspaper, squeeze food through the bowels and make for the psychiatrists couch. The ancient sages considered one drop of semen equal in vital power to one hundred drops of blood. The Hindu holy men refer repeatedly to Amrita, the elixir of life, a rejuvenation substance that may be produced during prolonged sexual activity without ejaculation. The production of this elixir, which Westerners might call a higher hormonal secretion, requires a sexual technique that prevents ejaculation and thereby allows the body to enter higher and higher states of energy. Extraordinary powers, including healing and clairvoyant perception, can evolve when one retains the semen and drives its power back up into the body and up to the pineal gland (3rd Eye) by way of the spinal cord.
With frequent ejaculation of sperm, vitality ultimately plummets. The big spender or high roller loses stamina, his vision begins to weaken, hair tumbles from his skull, and he grows old before his time. At first he will not feel drained, but after years of abuse his capacities will begin to drop alarmingly. When the hormonal secretions of the sexual glands are regularly leached out, the body is sapped at its root and within a period of time that will range from months to decades depending on the endowment of the individual, creative and sexual abilities are halved, and the ability to withstand disease and the frailties of old age is diminished.
This is why Djehuty promotes and practices celibacy when not involved in a relationship, no matter how many years go by. Celibacy is a discipline that leads to self-respect, which is the fruit of discipline. I purposely, willfully, and consciously avoid sex without love, as I know it creates imbalances in one's physical, mental and spiritual bodies and will slow real growth. Without loving a female or woman, dual cultivation (higher awareness) is impossible. Dual cultivation is impossible without the full participation of the female or woman who must transform up her yin essence and energy stored in her ovaries, just as the man or male must transform up his yang essence and energy stored in his testicles. A wise man must regard the woman he loves as more than a powerful generator or conductor of yin energy, for she is foremost a human being worthy of his full love and respect. I personally find it difficult to be sexually active with a woman I do not love. My motto is, if I can't see a female or woman as the mother of my children (offspring), then I cannot be physically sexually active with her, regardless of the sexual thoughts in my mind - thanks to discipline in the form of self-denial. This is virtually impractical for most males today, especially brothers (African-American males), but then again, I am not the average brother (African-American male) and greatly pride myself on this fact.
Celibacy allows me to get closer to God and to be more focused more spiritual stronger in purpose and faith to be more in tune with my inner self and masculine (and feminine) intuition. Plus I feel better and very worthy of myself, which greatly helps me from just settling with any ole woman just for the sake of being in a relationship and having sex. Celibacy teaches me to strive high and for the best. I must do and attain better than the last person and relationship. Growth! Prosperity! Advancement! You end up feeling so clean and pure, your standards are greatly elevated and enhanced, and then you are only open and available to a certain and rare qualitative person, and you also send out this clean and pure energy that attracts to yourself what you have been holding out for. This is my motto and personal philosophy that Minister Louis Farrakhan cultivated in me.
Celibacy plays a pivotal role in prostate health as well. A man should not go his whole lifetime being celibate and by no means do I advocate this. Celibacy is seasonal a discipline! It allows the prostatic fluid to rebuild and restore itself. It also allows the prostate gland to rest and to strengthen itself.
Enough said about prostate maintenance - what about remedies for prostate problems? A man with prostate woes should first learn to consume more zinc-rich foods like sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds or papitas, and fenugreek.
And pertaining to herbs, my area of specialty and first love pertaining to my many talents, there are so many helpful herbs for the male prostate. Herbs great for the prostate, maintenance as well as remedy, include saw palmetto berries, African pygeum bark, cocculus root, buchu, juniper berries, couchgrass, gravel root, pumpkin seed, false unicorn root, uva ursi, goldenseal, comfrey root, cornsilk, cubeb berries, gokshura (tribulis), hydrangea, kelp, nettles, and sarsaparilla.
Pygeum, a great African herb, is an anti-inflammatory phytosterol with the ability to normalize male prostate prostaglandins and is a specific in treating benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH). Gravel root relieves the prostate of sediment and inflammation.
Buchu is an African herb and can be used to treat enlargement of the prostate. Comfrey, combined with Buchu, can help stop painful and bloody urination. Cornsilk soothes urethral and prostate inflammation. Hydrangea is an herb useful for prostate infection as well as inflammation. Cubeb berries can remedy abscesses of the prostate gland. False unicorn root repairs the prostate gland and nourishes it as it is rich in the minerals molybdenum and zinc, two important male sexual health minerals.
Gokshura, one of my favorite herbs, is widely used in Ayurvedic medicine. It is great for all male reproductive problems such as enlarged prostate, genital herpes, poor semen quality, impotence and sterility. Nettles is an herb that inhibits prostate activity and is very helpful in the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), in addition to providing serious nutrition to the prostate.
Sarsparilla helps reduce an enlarged prostate and provides the necessary male reproductive hormonal precursors. Goldenseal, an herb great for just about every disease, rids the prostate of mucus (which causes prostatitis) and also helps to stop bloody urine (a sign of prostate cancer in most cases).
Cocculus root from Malaysia, is pure zinc phosphate which is the number one food of the prostate gland. Men in Malaysia do not have the prostate problems like men in America because they wisely consume the root of the cocculus plant, just like I do. It makes a great tasting tea along with saw palmetto and pygeum (sweetened with maple syrup and lemon or lime juice). Kelp, one of my favorite seaweeds, greatly nourishes the prostate gland by feeding it the minerals it needs.
Seaweeds contain everything we need as far as human nutrition is concerned. Juniper berries, like gravel root, will help to dissolve prostate sediment. These two herbs work great together! And last but not least, Saw palmetto berries, probably the best herb for the prostate, is very effective in cases of prostatitis and BPH. It rebuilds the tissues of the prostate gland as well as tonify the prostate gland. Saw palmetto helps in every disease of the male reproductive system.
A great periodic exercise for prostate health is using an accu-point massager and massaging the prostate gland (the skin above it) for a few minutes. This function will greatly stimulate the prostate (and the testicles too!). I perform this exercise about 2-3 times per month. Accu-point massagers can be purchased at Chinese health food stores. The little machine has a gold-plated point which is a magnet and used for acupressure.
And lets not forget about magnetic therapy. I have helped many men by suggesting that they place a small, but very powerful, magnet (e.g. 4,600 - 9,000 gauss) over their prostate with an adhesive band and wear it for 24-48 hours. It greatly takes away any pain that a man may be experiencing, especially in cases of prostatitis. It will also make your urine clear! Why? Because magnets are very alkalizing and therefore it neutralizes the acidity in the urine. I also do this from time to time myself. Hey, one of my health mottos is prevention is better than cure.
Also, I notice that every time after I perform an enema on myself, a favorite ritual of mine, thanks to Dick Gregory, I feel a very stimulating sensation in my prostate gland. I can actually feel it jump or move. My prostate responds to the cleansing effect of the enema and mainly the oxygen in my enema water. I can't express in words how wonderful this sensation is and feels. It's like my prostate gland is telling me Thank you for performing that enema. After all, the prostate is very proximate to the rectum and to cleanse the rectum is to cleanse the prostate. The body is indeed wholistic! So men, start performing those enemas and if you can't perform one on yourself, go and get a colonic.
Lastly, men, if you want a happy and fruitful sex life, you would be wise to stop consuming coffee, wine, beer, vinegar, soda pop, cigarettes and marijuana; beef, fish, eggs, pig booty (bacon) and other parts; dairy products (cow snot/mucus); chocolate (rat feces), Fool-Aid (kool aid) and all that other crap that is widely available to the ignorant masses.
Americans are so sex-crazed, they have over-sexed themselves. Thats why there's a big market for sex enhancing drugs like Cialis and Viagra. Americans are suffering from poor sex quality and many couples are unhappy. Many American men can't perform well sexually due to prostate problems (pain, frequent urination, etc.). What a pity! I wonder why the male gorilla doesn't have prostate problems. How come so many Christian reverends (and now, American Muslim Imams) are beleaguered with prostate problems?
Any hate for women men may have, had better be put in check. Misogyny and patriarchy plays a pivotal role, metaphysically, in prostate woes. This may sound strange, but is very true! Men, especially Muslim, Christian and Jewish Men, better learn to respect the womb that bore them.
Men, just as a woman's femininity is housed (centered) in her uterus, the center of your masculinity is housed in your prostate gland. American males and females are NOT CENTERED in life anymore. They are imbalanced and the endemic prostate and uterus problems bear witness to this fact!
Do you know why American women's uteruses are atrophying and dwindling (recoiling) up today? Because American women, especially African American women, are acting like and competing with men, whose uteruses called prostate has dwindled/recoiled over time (hundreds of thousands of years) and does not work (hold life) today.
What does it profit a woman to gain MAN'S world and yet lose her own femininity (womanhood)? Think about it! Thank you for reading!
