After I was diagnosed with benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH, I was able to ignore it for a decade or so before I reached a crisis point when I was finally forced to address the symptoms. I began seeing an urologist/surgeon trained in all of the standard treatments of Western medicine and started a pharmacological regimen, which left me feeling ill and sexually impotent. When I told the doctor I could not continue with the drugs, he told me that my only remaining option was surgical, which would of course have its own risks and unintended consequences, not to mention be quite expensive.
I needed to find something else, so I asked Dr. Gregg-Flax if she could help. I will stop well short of calling it miraculous. It has taken some months, but a program of acupuncture, herbal therapy, careful dietary choices and a healthy lifestyle has reduced my symptoms greatly. I am now confidently looking forward to being completely healed and well.
