Questions About Specific Health Issues

AB Husband with Prostatitis


My type AB husband, diagnosed with prostatitis, takes saw palmeto and lycopene supplements to support prostate health in addition to all the blood-type supplements recommended for his type. What else can he do?


One of the best natural remedies for prostate health is the root (rhizome) of the stinging nettle (Urtica dioica).(1) Urtica contains both anti-DHT (DHT is the 'bad' testosterone') elements and an anti-microbial, anti-bacterial lectin, known as Urtica Dioica Aggutinin (UDA). Try not to confuse the rhizome preparations with the much more popular leaf forms, which are apopular remedy for hay fever.

The Ask Dr. D'Adamo internet advice column ran from 1996 to 2009, at which time Dr. D'Adamo's teaching and programming responsibilities no longer allowed him to devote time and resources to directly answering visitor questions. However we've recently reorganized this treasure-trove of material and made it again available to his readership. He occasionally posts new entries. These are marked with a NEW tag.
