Given the media coverage of Britain’s King Charles III’s prostate cancer, it’s worth adding my two cents here.

In his instructive book ‘The Tao of Sexology’, author Stephen Chang makes an important point.  He writes that the descending colon is located close to the prostate.  

Accumulating faecal matter solidifies along the thin mucus membrane lining of the descending colon wall. 

Toxic matter from here can and does seep through, contaminating the prostate, so keeping a healthy colon is imperative as any signs of constipation must be taken seriously and avoided.

This explains why many deteriorating prostate conditions emerge on that part of the prostate closest to the descending colon.

Ensuring Prostate Health

One approach has been to insert a hydrogel spacer between the colon wall and the prostate to prevent the toxic seepage but I have no first-hand experience of that initiative to make further comment.

I have recommended ‘The Tao of Sexology’ to people for several years, many of whom have thanked me as it conveyed a different and empowering perspective on the subject of sex as much as it relates to body health. 

The book is becoming expensive so search around for a copy and make sure it stays in the family for generations.

At some point in time, most men are faced with this problem. It’s worth stressing that many men have the condition of prostate cancer in their advancing years yet it is not the cause of their death.

Common symptoms of prostate problems include 

– the need to get up several times during the night to urinate

– blood in urine or semen

– pain or burning urination

– painful ejaculation

– reduced testosterone and libido

Conditions arise because the prostate gland expands over the years leading to severe urinary disorders. 

Many men also suffer reduced bladder immunity, making them more susceptible to conditions such as bladder infections.

Erectile dysfunction following radical prostatectomy for clinically localised prostate cancer is a known potential complication of the surgery. Having written that, with the advent of the nerve-sparing radical prostatectomy technique, many men can expect to recover erectile function in the current era.

Below is the most balanced video on the subject I have come across. A really-must-listen for all men and their partners.
