Reducing Prostate Infection and Inflammation in 2019
Do you know what the least understood organ in the male body is?
Here’s a hint… it starts with the letter “P” and is associated with the word “Pain.” (Especially among older men)
It’s the Prostate!! (Spoiler Alarm Ended. You are clear to keep reading…)
If I were to ask you the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word “Prostate”, do you feel like this?
It’s OK if you don’t! Prostate Infection is important to learn, and you are reading to find out! (P.S.- I hate feeling like the elephant in the room too…)
Let’s say you interview a random person on the street with the question,”What is the Prostate?”, they would likely say…
- What is it?
- I’m not sure…
If you were to ask someone else, “Where is the Prostate?” You might get an answer like…
- I don’t know, you tell me. I wasn’t great at Anatomy.
OK. Assume you find someone who knows where it is, but if you ask them, “what does the Prostate do?“Answers may include…
- It causes health problems… (Vague, but true)
- Poor Vision? (Definitely False)
- Let me tell you, it causes me real pain when I go to the bathroom!!! (Answered by an honest older gentleman)
Prostate Health Explained 100% – All Your Questions Answered by DR Vitamin Solutions
We are on an adventure to discover the Prostate. Let’s start off with a basic, but important question; shall we?
Do Women Have a Prostate, or only Men; or Both?
Tip: Use this fun fact to impress your friends
If you ask this question to your friends, family or even strangers; you might get answers like…
- Are you trying to trick me?
- I’m not a Biology Major, why are you messing with me?
- I have no clue. (Great answer. I love the honesty)
What’s the answer? (Drumroll…)
Ladies, I’m sorry to tell you; only males have a Prostate. (Don’t feel bad, it causes us loads of problems!)
Prostate Health worsens with age and can make urination painful, it’s safe to say aging and the Prostate are not friends. (So really Ladies, don’t feel bad.)
Let’s get to the nitty gritty, shall we? Let’s start with the Male Reproductive System…
In this photo, you can see the following…
- The Anus
- The Rectum
- The Bladder
- The Testis
- Oh, and the Star of our Show… the Prostate
Here is a close-up so you can see how the Prostate is truly a Walnut-Sized Gland…
Definitely Walnut-sized, wouldn’t you agree?
Now that you know where it is located, let’s discover what it does….
Fun Fact #2 – How the Flow of Urine and Semen Explain the Prostate
Let’s start by explaining the flow of Urine.
We all know Urine is stored in the Bladder (If you didn’t, now you know… yay!)
When it’s time to pee, Urine stored in the Bladder travels through the Prostate into the Urethra and exits out through the tip of the Penis.
I made this illustration so you can see where this takes place…
Urine, check. Let’s keep exploring Fun Fact #2…
Semen and the Prostate
The Ejaculatory Duct releases Semen into the Urethra to be expelled through the tip of the Penis.
Semen is released through the lower vein as pictured below…
For the Visual Learners (Like Myself)…
If you are a visual learner like I am, this is a picture-perfect representation of what is happening…
This process is like merger of two rivers. When these two rivers merge, they become one stream. This is where the Urine and Semen merge into the Urethra and both exit the body through the tip of the Penis.
Digging Deeper – What does the Prostate do?
The #1 job of the Prostate is to create a milky-white fluid to protect Sperm Cells.
Approximately 30% of your semen is made of this milky white fluid! (1)
The Surprising Truth
The Prostate makes this milky-white substance for one surprising reason…
The surprising reason – to make Sperm Alkaline so it can survive in the Acidic, low pH environment of the Vagina. (2)
You can think of the milky-white fluid as a Trojan Horse for Sperm. When Sperm have the high pH level to reach eggs, they get happy like…
The Prostate makes victory possible for Sperm!
Fun Fact #3 – The Hormone Your Prostate Needs to Succeed
For your Prostate to make the best protective liquid, it needs one specific hormone…
Testosterone. Particularly Dihydrotestosterone. (Big word, but it’s Fun Fact #3)
Let’s answer this question so you can impress your friends and look really smart…
What does Dihydrotestosterone do for your Prostate?
Two things specifically…
- The hormone matures your Prostate when you are young
- It maintains your Prostate Health as you age
How Things Get Painful…
Your Prostate begins to cause you problems for one common reason:
- Long periods of overexposure to Dihydrotestosterone (wait… what?)
Over time, overexposure to the hormone results in an enlarged Prostate Condition called…
Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH)
Let’s begin by dissecting this word so you can further impress your friends.
Benign – meaning Innocent
Prostatic – meaning your Prostate (duh…)
Hyperplasia – pertaining to an increase in new cell numbers (you’re really getting fancy now)
As men get older, their Prostate enlarges in size due to pressure caused by an increase in new cells. When pressure enlarges the Prostate, it shrinks the little tunnel that Urine passes through to get to the Penis. Here is a visual illustration of what happens…
How BPH Causes Pain
The little tunnel illustrated above goes by a fancy scientific term – the Transition Zone.
It is called the Transition Area because it is where Urine transitions from the Bladder into the Urethra to exit the body via the Penis.
New cells put pressure on the Prostrate, causing it become inflamed. When the Prostate is inflamed, it is a condition known as Prostatitis. Symptoms of Prostatitis include chronic pelvic pain, acute bacterial infection, and bladder infection.
New cells caused by Dihydrotestosterone shrink the Transition Zone. This makes it difficult for Urine to pass through the little tunnel into the Penis. (Is there anything worse than having pain when you pee?)
Simply put – BPH is PAINFUL because you can’t pee properly. (Ouch!)
It just makes you want to cry…
Real World Symptoms of BPH
So, who is to blame for BPH? New cells. When your Prostate enlarges, several symptoms occur:
- Weak streams of Urine (Nothing but sad dribbles…)
- Sharp, Painful Urination
What is the health consequence of BPH?
The Shocking Truth – Urine containing Bacteria does not leave your bladder. Inflammation creates the perfect environment for Prostate Disease.
Here are the 2 Reasons that you should be concerned about Urine that does not leave the bladder…
- Bacterial Prostate Infection
- Pelvic Pain
- Bladder Rupture (This is an explosion of your bladder)
Think of Bladder Rupture as a Nuclear Bomb exploding in your body, leaving a toxic wasteland of bacterial infection, making your body into a literal Doomsday.
Fun Fact #4 – How You Can Steer Clear of BPH, Naturally!
Thankfully, there are medications that can safely and naturally prevent Prostate Infection. You want to choose BPH Medication that…
- Relaxes the smooth muscle around the Urinary Tract
- Supports benefits to prevent Prostate Infection
- Blocks the flow of Dihydrotestosterone
When you reduce the amount of Dihydrotestosterone to the Prostate, new cells are not produced. Prostate enlargement cannot happen if new cells are not putting pressure on the Transition Zone; thus you should focus on medication that supports option #3.
Zetpil Prostaflow Plus Suppositories were designed with these objectives in mind, using only natural ingredients to support anti-inflammatory benefits to reverse Prostate Infection and support Urinary Health.
These Suppositories support three benefits for Prostate Health:
- Beta-Sitosterol and Palmetto to support the Prostate Gland
- Selenomethionine raises levels of Selenium promoting synthesis of antioxidants
- Reduces Dihydrotestosterone to reduce the size of inflamed prostate
Fun Fact #4 – Blocking Dihydrotestosterone causes your Prostate to shrink. Use Zetpil Prostaflow Plus Suppositories are the best way to stay off of Antibiotics and Anti Inflammatory Drugs. They support optimum biofeedback by using Beta-Sitosterol and Selenomethionine to fight Prostate Infection and support pain-free pee. (We will always vote for pain-free pee, always.)
Why You Should Talk to Your Doctor First

Also, you should know; there are alternative ways to treat Prostate Infection that may be more effective for you.
Alternative Treatments in 2019 which stem beyond Antibiotics including:
- Laser Treatment
Your doctor will help you assess your specific situation, and determine your best course of treatment. Talking to your doctor regularly explains this next step…
Prostate Cancer – Why Regular Doctor Visits are Non-Negotiable
Prostate Cancer has two scary realities, we do not want to scare you; but the facts are both real and not-fun:
Prostate Cancer happens when abnormal cells build an uncontrollable growth in the Prostate. Here is an illustration:
If you are over the age of 66, I strongly recommend visiting your doctor for exclusively a Prostate Checkup for two big reasons:
- Age 66 is the average age of diagnosis (4)
- Studies have shown up to 50% of males over the age of 70 have one form or another of Prostate Cancer. (5)
Fun Fact #5 – Most Males who have Prostate Cancer do not die from Prostate Cancer
Luckily, Prostate Cancer is a slow growing cancer with promising survival rates. In fact, Prostate Cancer is such a slow growing cancer that most males who have it end up passing away from something else (scary, but true!) Here are the survival rates of Prostate Cancer that has not spread to other parts of the body…
Although the numbers are good, you want to catch Prostate Cancer as early as possible, especially before it spreads. (The earlier the better in terms of all cancers, agreed?).
Metastasized Prostate Cancer – The Real Danger
Survival Rates dramatically fall when Prostate Cancer metastasizes (a fancy science word for spreading…)
- 5 year survival rate of 30% (8)
Why Metastasis Should Be Your Real Fear…
If this Cancer Tumor breaks off from the Prostate, your Lymphatic System or Bloodstream could deliver it to other parts of your body.
How Doctors Diagnose Prostate Cancer
Doctors combine two strategies to diagnose:
- Prostate Biopsy
Your Biopsy will give your doctor your Gleason Score.
The Gleason Score ranks Cancers on a scale of 2-10 in terms of severity and aggressiveness.
Score 2 tells the doctor the cancer is non-aggressive and non-invasive. Score 10 is the most severe, indicating the cancer has become invasive and very aggressive.
There are two methods of diagnostics currently used to diagnose Prostate Cancer…
Diagnostic #1 – PSA Screening (Controversy Exposed)
What is PSA Screening?
PSA Screening is a blood test to identify Prostate Specific Antigens in your blood culture. Low-Gleason and High-Gleason tumors secrete Antigens that this test specifically identifies.
If the test turns positive or negative, it will give you an indication of the stage of your cancer.
The problem with PSA Screening, however, is its history of inaccuracy.
There is a chance your test could produce a false negative, implying you do not have cancer when in reality, you do. Obesity and certain medications can produce low PSA scores that distort the results of the screening by 50%. (8)
PSA Screening can also produce false positives, telling you that you have cancer… when you actually do not. Inflammation and/or an Enlarged Prostate could produce a high number indicating cancer that is not there. (9) Incorrect PSA results could cause you to take medication you do not need.
You can decide to get a PSA Test if you feel like Prostate Cancer runs in your family medical history, but first get medical advice from your doctor if a PSA Screening is right for you.
Diagnostic #2 – Digital Rectal Examination (DRE)
Think of a DRE as a Prostate Massage performed by your healthcare practitioner. Doctors use their finger to perform a physical exam, known as a the Digital Rectal Exam (DRE), to feel the shape of the Prostate. They do this to detect if an abnormal growth is present and to certify the Prostate is in its normal shape.
Although this option as well as a Transrectal Ultrasound are natural and safe, results are fairly inconsistent. (10)
The best option is to talk to your doctor to decide if a DRE is right for you. If the Doctor does not approve, at least you can skip this experience…
Prostate Cancer Treatment
Treatment of Prostate Cancer is determined by doctors on a case by case situation.
Doctors are now treating Prostate Cancer with Active Surveillance – a modern strategy in low-Gleason Tumors. (11) The route of treatment you decide with your doctor shows why it is important for you to maintain regular visits.
The best treatment is a collaboration between you and your doctor, so keep your communication open and active.
