TURP is done by removing a Better Bladder Review part of the prostate through the passageway of urine in the penis, in doing so, the constricting valve at the bladder is opened causing the semen to flow to the bladder rather that through the penis. Orgasm occurs without the ejaculation of semen hence the term dry orgasm. Hormonal therapy, done either by orchiectomy (or removal of one or both testes) or through medication, aims to deprive the cancer cells of testosterone by creating a different hormonal balance in male. The deficiency in male hormone reduces sexual desire in men. The psychological effects of having one or both testes removed also heighten the problem. Other treatments like radiation and chemotherapy increase the pain during ejaculation. Decrease in amount of semen during ejaculation is also prevalent.

The chance of recovering penile erection after surgeries has become possible when the nerve is spared during radical prostatectomy. Viagra is found to be effective. Injection of Caverject (alprostadil) is used whenever erection is necessary and is very useful even without stimulation. Effects of hormonal therapies are usually lessened by counseling of both partners. In the absence of social support referral to "self-help" groups might become necessary.

Hippocrates, the father of medicine, once said: "Let food be your medicine, and your medicine be your food." Food therapy is the foundation of Chinese medicine.For thousands of years, Chinese medicine has focused on food cures.One of the major differences between Chinese medicine and Western medicine with regard to food therapy is that the former uses diet to prevent and cure illness, while the latter seldom uses foods for symptomatic treatment of disease, other than using diet exclusively for treating obesity problems.

Another major difference is that Chinese medicine takes into consideration not just the nutrients of foods, such as carbohydrates, proteins, vitamins and minerals, but also the flavors, the energies, and the movements of foods in relation to different body organs.In Chinese medicine, foods have five flavors: bitter, pungent, salty, sour, and sweet. Flavors in foods don't just give you the taste: they have an impact on your internal organs.
