The concept of integrative medicine is guided by the principle to use therapies that have some high-quality evidence to support them. This would be inclusive of combining conventional Western medicine with alternative or complementary treatments, such as herbal medicine, acupuncture, massage, biofeedback, yoga, and stress reduction techniques.
Advocates of integrative care say that it’s crucial to hold alternative therapies up to scientific scrutiny, rather than dismissing them outright, because doctors and patients alike need answers.
It is just as important to find out what doesn’t work as it does to find out what does. A great example is where the researchers affiliated with UCSF completed a study that showed that saw palmetto did not improve benign prostate hyperplasia, a noncancerous enlargement of the prostate gland. The results were published in The New England Journal of Medicine. This was and is important as more than 2 million men in the U.S. take saw palmetto as an alternative to prescriptions.
Despite these findings many physicians in North America know very little about beta-sitosterol, a therapy that has shown benefit, and its use by physicians for over three decades throughout the rest of the world for the symptoms of benign prostate hyperplasia, or an enlarged prostate. A majority of physicians in North America rely almost exclusively on pharmacologic intervention as promoted by large pharmaceutical companies. It’s easy for practitioners of western medicine to completely dismiss alternatives due to the sheer fact that training in the use of natural products is virtually almost non-existent in their training. Afterall the big money and pressure is on from the giants in the pharmaceutical industry.
Even I have to admit when I first heard about beta-sitosterol I dismissed it. The primary reason was is that despite physicians receiving eight to ten medical journals per month delivered to their medical office or homes they rarely if ever read them cover to cover. What they do read is often the result of the pharmaceutical industry drawing their attention to the latest study on this or that new pharmaceutical drug. This can occur via peer to peer discusions again often influenced by pharmaceutical industry promotion.
As western medicine has progressed the time for treating individual patients has decreased. Physicians on average see twice as many patients due to managed care and benefit resource reimbursement management. This has decreased the time medical professionals have to actually learn about natural products that are published in the same medical journals that they are receiving. A good example as in the case of ” beta-sitosterol ” British Journal of Urology, Lancet, and Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews. In addition to data made available through the NIH.GOV web site.
The good news is that there are some organizations like the non-profit the International College of Integrative Medicine that actually exist and offer comprehensive education of physicians about the effectiveness of advanced medical care through advanced level trainings and conferences. The web site for this organization is http://www.icimed.com/. On this site you can search for a practitioner that is trained in integrative medicine.
The maker of Best Prostate®, IMS Supplements, Inc. has made a donation to the International College of Integrative Medicine to support their educational efforts.
Ed Randall’s organization is dedicated to increasing prostate cancer awareness and education.
The organization increases awareness about prostate cancer through their Minor League Initiative – which entails events at minor league ballparks across the country staffed by our dedicated volunteers.
Ed Randall’s Fans for the Cure makes available important information about prostate cancer, and at some ballparks also offers free prostate cancer screenings , also known as a prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test.
In 2012, Ed Randall’s Fans for the Cure launched its “Know Your Score” public awareness campaign with a simple message for men over forty years of age: Visit your doctor to check for prostate cancer, get your PSA score and stay in the game.
Ed Randall’s Fans for the Cure is a 501c3 charity.

Many physicians use and recommend supplements to their patients. Despite this, the general population of, health care providers have limited formal training and education with respect to supplement ingredients. The importance of clinical references with respect to supplement ingredients should be a priority for consumers. It is important to tell your health care provider when you initiate any supplement. It is also important to ascertain your health care provider’s knowledge of the supplement ingredients that you are discussing. Don’t assume.
Prostate Massage was once a very popular therapy for prostatitis in the Western culture. This was prior to the predominence of antibiotic therapy. Today it is still practiced as a non-pharmacologic approach for chronic prostatitis throughout China. More information can be found at: http://www.bestprostate.com/prostate_massage.php
Before initiating any treatment modality such as prostate massage it is best to consult with your health care provider. There are health risks associated with prostate massage.
This blog and/or affiliated link(s) does not endorse the practice of prostate massage. The purpose is to provide relevant information on the topic that you can discuss with your medical doctor.
Today the prostate supplement market is constantly being targeted by false non-accredited Institutes “Fischer Urological Institute” and / or Pill reports brought to you by organizations like MDhealthreports.com that literally portray themselves as credible sources. The fact is that these organizations are not accredited and these so called pill reporting agencies are a fraud. Simple searches on the name of the organization at Better Business Bureau, and Dunn & Bradstreet websites clearly shows that these so called expert agencies are nothing more that a false front to get the consumer to purchased their alleged highly rated product. We encourage consumers to report these to the Federal Trade Commission, the nation’s consumer protection agency, collects complaints about companies, business practices, and identity theft.

prostatepillreport.com is now brought to you by a company entitled MDHealthReports.com (web site registered 2/2010) www.mdhealthreports.com DBA Stigwood Research Institute. Sounds official doesn’t it. You may wish to click on the link to see all the credentials of the medical personnel and all the health reports they have published. MDHealthReports.com makes you think that they provide authentic doctor approved or endorsed health reports on numerous products. The truth is they provide one report that promotes the expensive product “Prostavar”. The website posts pictures and/or logos of Duke Medicine, and the “James Buchanan Brady Urological Institute” – John Hopkins Medicine as endorsements.
Best Prostate is manufactured in Torrance, California. The state-of-the-art facility in Torrance is one of the few facilities in the United States that carries GMP (good manmufacturing practices) certifications from both NSF International, NPA (Natural Products Association, formerly NNFA), as well as QAI (Quality Assurance International) organic certification.
Maybe MDhealthreports.com (Stigwood) can provide you with a photo of the facility in Torrance, CA.
The Offices of Best Prostate are in North Hollywood, CA. Personally the owners of Best Prostate did not see fit to spend resources on expensive offices in Beverly Hills, CA that would increase the price of our product for consumers.
The following photograph is from the facility in Torrance where Best Prostate is manufactured.
This is a machine used in putting product into capsules.
Be advised that the lab tests provided by MDHealthReports.com can not and do not infer either efficacy or safety. A laboratory measurement can only confirm the identity of a specific compound and the amount of it present in the sample being tested. MDHealthReports.com discusses the benefit of the mineral zinc but fails to discuss why zinc is in a supplement.
Best Prostate contains zinc due to the findings published by Leake A, et al. “The effect of zinc on the 5 alpha-reduction of testosterone by the hyperplastic human prostate gland.” J Steroid Biochem. Feb1984;2092:651-655.and Pavon Maganto E. “Zinc in prostatic physiopathology. I. Role of zinc in the physiology and biochemistry of the prostatic gland”. Arch Esp Urol. Mar1979;32(2):143-52. and the fact that scientists have known for decades that Zinc may play an important part in prostate health. Additional data on Zinc and Prostate Health has been completed by Irving Bush, M.D., senior consultant at the Center for Study of Genitourinary Diseases in West Dundee, Illinois, and former chairman of the Food and Drug Administration panels on gastroenterology, urology and dialysis. Dr. Irving Bush of the Chicago Medical School and researchers from Cook County Hospital studied over 5,000 patients and the effects of zinc on enlarged prostates. An additional study was conducted at the University of Edinburgh Medical School in Scotland where they discovered high doses of zinc inhibited the activity of the enzyme that converts testosterone to dihydrotestosterone in test tube prostate tissues.
