TCM and Prostate Health

I have noticed recently that there has been an overwhelming amount of information in the news, in both Eastern and Western Medicine reports, on the controversial nature of PSA testing in regards to men’s health.  PSA, or prostate specific antigen, is the protein produced by prostate cells, and the main screening agent for prostate cancer. While there are reasons why PSA levels can elevate that don’t necessarily mean that a man has prostate cancer, including prostate infections (prostatitis), urinary tract infections, and frequent bike riding, it is important to know all the facts. (For more information on PSA, check out this New York Times article.)

After the age of 40, men’s vital energy in the kidney system decreases, resulting in a disturbance of the sex hormones. Whether you are considering PSA testing or have already been evaluated, Traditional Chinese Medicine may be of help. Click here for more information on acupuncture for prostate health.
