More and more research studies suggest that traditional Chinese medicine can be effective for various aspects of prostate health. Its methods apparently can slow down the growth of unwanted cells or reduce side effects of chemotherapy for those patients who suffer from prostate cancer. A lot of studies have been conducted, and they made some issues clear, but more research is needed to identify many other useful effects that traditional Chinese medicine is capable of. At the same time, one fact is clear: traditional Chinese medicine was designed to keep people healthy, rather than treat diseases, which it can do, too. But it appears most effective in preventing prostate problems, and it can help when the patient finds—or just “feels”—that something is not right, even when western medical tests have shown nothing wrong.
