I had severe burning and swelling in my prostate gland about a month ago. It was even painful to sit on the couch. Then, I started to investigate the root cause of the problem. Doug Kaufman who has a TV show called Know the Cause released a book about prostate cancer, and in his book he claims that fungal organisms cause many health problems including prostate issues. I took his ideas and put them in my pocket. Afterwards, I started thinking what's causing fungal overgrowth. According to Paul Chek, famous holistic health practitioner, fungus overgrowth is a result of excess sugars in the system (may be caused by blood Sugar handling issues, poor nutrition or dysbiosis(too much bad bacteria in the gut)) Paul says fungus is a part of our healthy intestinal system, and we just need to keep it in balance. Paul's ideas also helped me to put another piece into my healing puzzle. As I continued my research I found Natasha Campbell's work GAPS Diet which helps to restore the intestinal system. She says that damaged gut flora contributes to fungal and bacterial overgrowth. I thought since the prostate problems are caused by pathogens, such as fungus, it would make sense to implement Natasha Campbells diet. I started the diet from the intro phase as this phase is the most effective, then I followed the steps word by word. Everything had to be like how it is on her diet. No extra foods, drinks, supplements. (Diet info is free on her web site. Please Google it) One week into the diet, I started applying cold pressed coconut oil rectally. Especially around the area where I felt burning and throbbing prostate problem) After two days, I woke up with no discomfort. Burning and swelling stopped completely! I still continue my journey with GAPS diet, and I feel like a million bucks!!! I never felt this energized in my entire life.
Ps: Magic is in the little details. When using GAPS protocol, the most important thing to do is to consume home made yogurt and homemade fermented vegetable juice. Detox effects temporary, but a little annoying. People who want a quick fix may try the coconut oil rectally, but again this is only a temporary solution. Some people may think their prostate issue is hormonal related. Then, I would say GAPS diet is designed to detoxify your body from toxins including estrogen which is believed to be the cause of hormonal prostate issues according to Ray Peat Phd.
I hope this information helps some people heal their health problems.
