I am following Dr. Richard Schulze' protocol for prostate problems, with a good saw palmetto/corn silk/pygeum/zinc formula plus a vegan, organic diet. Often the pesticides and steroids in the non-organic meats and dairy are what lead to an enlarged prostate because they mess with your hormone levels.

In just 2 months I've noticed a great improvement in my prostate - the last doctor check about 2 weeks ago revealed that my prostate had gotten softer and smaller.

Thumbs up

Thanks for the suggestion R.O.A. How tough was it to go vegan? I can't imagine my bro-in-law doing that.

The latest is he has been transfered to psych ward (for evaluation) at Veteran's hospital because all tests came up negative. They think it may be psychosomatic.
