PSA TESTING: RESEARCHERS SAY DON'T DO IT!

Older Couple

The Canadian Task Force on Preventive Health Care just released an important recommendation for men to no longer choose the prostate specific antigen, or "PSA". They stated that PSA testing is not an effective screening tool since it can produce false-positive results, which then can lead to unnecessary treatments as well as unnecessary negative side-effects. This is just one more discovery showing why the PSA test may not be a good choice.*

Dr. Richard Ablin PSA Test Inventor*

In 2010, The Doctor (Richard Ablin) who invented the PSA test wrote an article titled "The Great Prostate Mistake". In this article, he described the PSA test as a "profit-driven public health disaster".  It was a true reality check to read how the developer of the PSA test felt about his invention. In that article, he stated "The medical community must confront reality and stop the inappropriate use of P.S.A. screening. Doing so would save billions of dollars and rescue millions of men from unnecessary, debilitating treatments".*

While only some doctors around the world have been negative to recommending the PSA test to their patients, now the word is really getting out and more people are realizing why PSA testing is not a good idea.  More men these days are electing to not only pass on the PSA test but also passing on invasive prostate procedures while they seek out more safer and natural methods to improve their prostate function.*

What is a Natural Approach to Achieving a Healthy Prostate?*

Male Reproductive Anatomy

Get Well Natural, LLC believes in a more natural and holistic approach to prostate health backed by the understanding that the body can optimally heal, only after it receives the support it requires.*

This natural approach is based on Eastern Medicine principals and often involves making positive lifestyle & dietary changes, as well as consuming specific herbal & other dietary supplements. Eastern Medicine philosophies suggest that a more harmonious and balanced body is better equipped to heal its own prostate gland, and maintain prostate health as a man ages.*

The Doctors and Master Herbalist that designed Get Well Natural's products understood this Eastern Medicine approach and identified common imbalances that are associated with prostate conditions such as Prostate Cancer, Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH), also called Benign Enlargement of the Prostate or "BEP", and prostatitis (swelling and inflammation of the prostate gland).*

After many years of clinical experience working with their patients, they developed successful, all-natural protocols designed to provide essential support their patient's bodies required to achieve a healthy prostate gland. Just like standard Eastern Medicine practices, these protocols generally included positive lifestyle & dietary suggestions, but with an emphasis on key herbal medicine formulations and ingredients.*

Herbal Medicine Formulations and Dietary Supplementation*

While the doctors who developed these protocols found little success with their patients using common prostate ingredients such as saw palmetto, pygeum, beta-sitosterol or stinging nettle, they found great success with certain Eastern Medicine based herbal combinations at specific concentrations and ratios.*

Here is a list of Get Well Natural's exclusive products that contain formulas that were designed by these doctors for their patients concerned with prostate health:*

a. Healthy Prostate & Ovary, and Crinum Prostate taken twice daily on an empty stomach. While Get Well Natural's Healthy Prostate & Ovary product is the foundation of any healthy prostate protocol, many individuals prefer to add the additional support that Crinum Prostate provides, thus these two products are most commonly taken together.  Note: Get Well Natural's Healthy Prostate & Ovary unique formulation and concentration ratio was designed to be taken for an initial period of 3-6 months at the regular dosages, and then taken at regular or reduced amounts thereafter for continued support.*

b. Uro Well, is an Eastern Medicine developed, dietary supplement designed to provides maximum health support for body in areas relating to  urinary system including the kidneys, ureters, bladder, urethra, and prostate in men.* Since frequent urination can be an all-too-common symptom of men over 60, the developers used the herbal formulation in Uro Well to provide additional urinary support for any of their prostate concerned patients that required additional support.*

c. Dietary supplemental support for promoting effective detoxification was an extremely important factor for their prostate protocols. These doctors and herbalists believed that most all prostate conditions such as prostate cancer, BPH, or prostatitis was either worsened or originally caused by over toxicity within the body. This is why detoxification is crucial.*

Get Well Natural's Detox Kit contains two products designed to provide the body with effective support for anyone concerned with eliminating stored toxins and overall cellular detoxification.*

  • Cell Saver (3 capsules, twice per day). All-natural herbal formulation to support the body in areas related to cellular functions in charge of releasing previously stored toxins.*
  • Super Z-Lite (10 drops, twice per day) is an all natural proprietary blend of purified water, micronized concentrated zeolite liquid, ancient ocean-derived liquid magnesium chloride, and fulvic minerals* 

Could regular detoxification protocols work as a kind of "fountain of youth"?*

We think so, and that is why many of us at Get Well Natural regularly use Cell Saver and Super Z-Lite as part of our regular health protocol year after year.

Note: All Get Well Natural products listed above do not contain common "unnatural" fillers found in most dietary supplements such as vegetable stearate, magnesium stearate, silicon dioxide, guar gum, titanium dioxide or silica. Also, no beef bovine capsules are used in these products, only kosher, vegetarian capsules.*

Positive Lifestyle & Dietary Changes for a Healthy Prostate*

Eastern Medicine practitioners understands that good prostate health is best achieved when an optimal balance exist within the body and organ system.  Around the world, there is a common understanding that a person's chosen lifestyle and dietary choices can directly impact the health of the prostate. Here are some commonly accepted dietary and lifestyle ideas that may impact your prostate health.*

Positive Dietary Changes*

Certain foods and beverages may help the prostate, while others may hurt it.  Here is a list of the commonly accepted foods that either help, or hurt:*

  • Water: Consuming small amounts of water throughout the day instead of large amounts all at once. Drinking room temperature to hot water instead of cold water.*
  • Fruits and vegetables with deep bright colors. Tomatoes are high in lycopene which has been shown to be healthy for the prostate.*
  • Limiting consumption of red & processed meats and opting for small fish, lean poultry, beans and eggs instead.*
  • Healthy fats such as olive oil or coconut oil, as well as fats from avocadoes, walnuts, flax and pumpkin seeds. Avoiding unhealthy fats such as hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated oils also known as trans fats.
  • Elimination of foods high in processed sugar, sodium/salt, as well as processed foods.*
  • Consumption and absorption of important minerals such as copper, zinc, selenium, other trace minerals.*
  • Elimination of alcohol, soda and caffeinated beverages like coffee and tea since caffeine may be detrimental to prostate health. Other beverage ingredients that may be detrimental to the body and health of the prostate include sugar, artificial sweeteners, phosphoric acid (which may weaken bones), as well as many unknown chemicals which may come from the cups, cans or processing of these types of beverages that do not appear on the beverage's label.*
  • Positive Lifestyle choices. According to both Western and Eastern Medicine philosophies, a person's lifestyle can make an impact on the health of the prostate gland. Here are some examples:*
    • Stress Reduction. Eastern Medicine practitioners believe that unhealthy levels of stress can create imbalance in the body and lead to almost any disease.  Western Medicine views high levels of stress as a serious concern which can lead to many different conditions.  Did you know that nervousness and tension can lead to more frequent urination? Common stress management activities known to support a healthy prostate may include yoga, meditation, prayer, breathing exercises, and meditation.*
    • Living with a toxic free focus. In our modern world, Toxicity is a growing problem. Common toxins such as pesticides, car or factory exhaust, fragrances, heavy metals, chemicals in our food, water and beverages, radiation, pharmaceuticals, and pathogens are around us every day.*
    • Eating, drinking and breathing toxic free. The good news is that there is much we can do to prevent our bodies from absorbing these types of toxic substances such as eating organic foods, using water filters in the home for drinking and showering, using a quality hepa and VOC air filter in the home and office, and removing chemical based cleaners and fragrances from our home and office.*
    • Regular Exercise.  As an example of how helpful exercise can be, in 2009 the American Association for Cancer Research presented its findings on how beneficial exercise was for men with prostate cancer. This study found that as little as 15 minutes per day could reduce mortality rates. They also found the following: "men who walked four or more hours a week had a 23 percent lower risk of all-cause mortality compared to men who walked less than 20 minutes per week. Men who walked 90 or more minutes at a normal to brisk pace had a 51 percent lower risk of death from any cause than men who walked less than 90 minutes at an easy walking pace."*
    • Urination via "Double Voiding". Have you tried urinating, and then urinating again a few moments later. This technique, known as double voiding, has been shown to be helpful and is generally recommended by doctors for overactive bladders.*
    • Temperature makes a difference: Since colder temperatures can cause urine retention, as well as increase a man's urgency to urinate, warmer weather may prove helpful.*
