author's review Dec 17, 2001
I've written Smart Medicine for a Healthy Prostate for men since most men, if they live long enough, will be affected by prostate disease; and women, since women also need to know how to help their loved ones prevent and treat prostate disease. To put matters in perspective, prostate cancer - the leading cause of cancer in men - begins as early as puberty and affects nearly every man if he lives long enough. Prostate enlargement, another common condition, affects half the men over the age of sixty, one third of whom need treatment. Finally, prostatitis accounts for more than two million doctor visits yearly. In fact, prostatitis is the most frequent reason that men under the age of fifty see a urologist.
That's the bad news. Now for the good news. Men don't have to become one of these statistics. Based upon information that I've gathered from scientific research, coupled with over twenty years of personal experience as a physician, urologic surgeon, and practitioner of conventional and alternative medicine, Smart Medicine for a Healthy Prostate will help men blessed with a healthy prostate keep it that way, and teach men challenged with prostate disease how to overcome it.
The book is organized into four chapters.
v The first chapter gives an overview of the prostate and pertinent male anatomy. v Each succeeding chapter guides readers through a different prostate disease. The first half of each chapter provides information about the natural history, evaluation, and state-of-the-art conventional therapies for the condition. v The second half of each chapter provides proven alternative therapies and teaches readers how to apply them. v The appendices contain a concise overview of nutritional and herbal supplements and the resource section provides additional valuable information.
I hope you enjoy reading my book. May you be blessed with abundant health and happiness.
