Men’s Health

Prostate and men’s reproductive conditions such as chronic prostatitis, interstitial cystitis, enlarged prostate or benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), and chronic pelvic pain, are a common complaint for many men of all ages and are often overlooked or mistreated. Men’s health conditions are some of the most challenging conditions for conventional providers to work with, because of a lack of addressing the most common underlying causes of these problems. Often, issues with the digestive tract and food reactivities must be addressed and sometimes the problem is with the muscles in the pelvis. At Medella Optimal Health, we strive to simultaneously identify and address the causes, while naturally reducing pain and other symptoms of your condition.

Prostate cancer is one of the most common cancers in men. Recently, there has been much debate around PSA screening and many patients are confused by what this test really means for them. Our doctors offer in depth counseling to determine if PSA testing and other available tests for screening for prostate cancer are appropriate, and, we offer effective, evidence-based advice addressing prostate cancer progression. We can also help with treating all forms of prostate cancer in consultation with your medical doctor or osteopath, including supporting you by providing natural support to conventional treatments for aggressive cancer.
