Has anyone experienced or researched the benefits of (1) prostate milking nad (2) Kegel exercises?
I have read that milking the prostate helps to increase blood flow to the gland, remove toxins built up over time and accumulated in tiny "sacs" in the gland, and to relieve muscles in the pelvic region.
I have also read that Kegel exercises relieves tension in the prostate and can help improve urine flow.
I suffer from BPH and I may have chronic prostatitis as well (the latter has not been confirmed by a culture of prostatic fluid, and my Uro does not want to do the culture as he would not treat an infection with Cipro anyway). Those in favor of prostate milking (or massage) say it can help with improve LUTS.
There is caution in that infection in the prostate can spread to the blood stream from massage/drainage of the prostate.
I'm looking for relief. I've tried acupuncture and take natural supplements and I've eliminated almost all xenoestrogens via lifestyle changes. I don't relish the thought of prostate milking but am willing to try things that could potentially help.
Lastly, I'm 59 and in reasonably good health otherwise. I'm not overweight and a moderate drinker (wine). I don't smoke and I eat a low fat, low red meat diet. My wife and I have not had physical relations in many years - and I've thought (more than once) that not having relations resulting in ejaculations (to clear out the prostate) may have resulted, over time, in the prostate problems that have plagued me the past 5-7 years. Any thoughts?
I'd greatly appreciate any feedback on these topics. Thanks in advance.
