To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and hear the lamentations of the women!

Re: Broccoli treatment - severe prostate pain

Broccoli has a lot of toxic oxalate. A sharp edged molecule that literally shreads through the body. Its ok for most people, but can irritate inflammatory conditions. Best for us o avoid. Spinach also has a lot of this stuff. While on the subject of what to avoid, look out for legumes and soy produc...

Re: Pyridium

Stay away unless you get SIGNIFICANT benifits. Pyridium is the brand name for Phenazopyridine, an azo dye, which are probably human carcinogens. Seriously risky.

Don't know about corn silk, but the other two are backed by a lot of positive data.

Re: Quercetin + Something to Help w/ Absorption?

Webslave is correct. Sorry. These synergistic antioxidants help to preserve the quercetin in the blood stream so that it has a chance to reach mast cells before being reduced. But in quercetin has 0 effect in large does, adding other radical scavengers will not help.

Re: L-Theanine and Theanine Serene

Great stuff if you drink a lot of coffee or have trouble sleeping. No ascribed benefit to CPPS.

Re: Cystoprotek

Sorry webslave, but I totally dissagree. There is a current push for research on CPPS, with lots of grant dollars behind it. That money is what interests the research to continue. As to the chstoproteck vs Q-Urol vs quercetin, they all work. Some brands of quercetin seems to work just as well as Pro...

Re: Ecstasy (MDMA) and CPPS

Bottom line, you were experience the euphoria of the drug and it's afterglow. The pleasure chemicals in you body were ramped up and everything felt better. Its a transient and ephemeral. More of a short reprieve than a viable solution. Same is true with opiates, at first they work great becuase your...

Re: Kava Root

Kava is fickle. When I take high doses, but space them out a week or so apart, it works to relax my symptoms. If taken at high doses more frequently, it will aggrivate the condition. I beileve it has something to do with 1) dehydration since its a diuretic, and 2) mast cell degranulation, since the ...

Re: Comments about Bracing

The question is, how to learn to stop bracing permanently. I've found it very difficult to stay conscious enough to make myself relax all the time. It's really a subconscious reflex. How to unlearn? Any suggestions?

Re: Pudendal Nerve Blocks this Morning by Dr. Weiss

What was Dr. Weiss's explanation for your continued pain symptoms despite the reduction in pain response to acute stimulus (i.e. poking and prodding)?

I'd like to know because I have experienced the same thing.

Also, what kind of block did you get? Steroid? Neurolysis?

Thanks!
