4 Natural Treatments for Varicocele (Plus Bonus)
Here I have written some great tips to help reduce varicocele pain & help begin varicocele treatment. I am writing this in response to the hundreds of emails I get asking me for treatment advice. I normally respond to these email by giving some quick general advice, and referring them to my guide. That's not good enough. So, I have written here some great advice for you if you are frustrated and want to see some results!
Now, realize that this is by no means a comprehensive guide to natural healing. It is however a good place to start. It will help alleviate some pain, and induce some healing. But, it is not comprehensive. If you are looking for a comprehensive guide, you need to get the healing guide.
Note: Feel free to contact me at any time if you still have any questions.
What You're Doing Wrong Every Day!
Right now, many scientific publications are coming out that demonstrate the negative impact of sitting on fertility and varicocele. Those who sit longer develop higher grade varicoceles and more severe symptoms.
Sitting more than a total of 8 or more hours a day has a major negative impact on our health. It is so bad that someone who sits but is active has the as bad health outcomes as someone who smokes, drinks alcohol, and has diabetes.
More relevant to us, sitting more than 6 hours a day is a major varicocele risk factor. It exacerbates the nutcracker effect, pressurizes the torso, is terrible for bowel health, and creates major muscular imbalances that increase varicocele swelling.
Since we cannot avoid sitting, the solution is to sit better. Use arm rests, do not wear tight pants and belts, wear proper underwear that won't overheat your testicles, use a foot rest, lean back against the seat, sit with good posture, avoid cushiony chairs, make sure your testicles do not over heat, do not sit down after masturbation or sex, etc.
Note: The Complete Guide to Natural Healing of Varicocele has 22 tips on Proper Sitting Technique.
Testicular Hyperthermia: Major Risk Factor.
I bet that you didn't know, but the veins that form your varicocele are actually also responsible for cooling your testicles! So varicocele actually damages testicular heat regulation.
Now, your testicles are outside of your body for a reason. They need to be kept cool! Over heating causes testicular damage (pain), and impairs testosterone production & fertility.
Over heating also increases the blood flow to the varicocele in a dysfunction attempt to keep cool the testicles. This means greater varicocele swelling, and more blood pooling.
So, everyone with varicocele MUST keep their testicles cool. The Healing Guide has an entire chapter dedicated to how best to attain normal testicular temperature. Remember that testicular cooling isn't about making your testicles cold. It is about normalizing testicular temperature. That means don't ice your testicles, and don't over cool them.
Active with Varicocele
Now, I know many people complain about activity causing swelling and pain. This is however simply due to lack of education. They do not know what is hurting them.
For example, you stress the varicocele by masturbating or having sex before exercising. This elevates scrotal temperatures, increases blood flow to the testicles, and induces scrotal sagging. Workout like that and you can guarantee yourself swelling and pain.
During exercise, obviously, having excessive abdominal pressure will increase the pressure on your lower abdominal area & impair blood flow from the testicles. That means do not eat too much before exercising, and avoid performing strenuous activities when bloated.
The healing guide has an entire chapter on making physical activity more less stressful and more therapeutic for varicocele.
Controllable Varicocele Risk Factors
There are dozens of controllable varicocele risk factors. I cover them all in detail in the Healing Guide. Here are a few things to consider:
Your diet does effect your varicocele to a large degree. A proper diet will help minimize the Nutcracker Syndrome and mitigate damage to testicles and testicular veins.
Make sure your diet promotes healthy bowels and bowel movement. A diet filled with anti-oxidants is also very helpful. A diet supportive of healthy vascular maintenance and development is also very important.
There are a few supplement that help to some degree, but do not waste your time on them without addressing the actual lifestyle factor that are responsible for varicocele development.
My guide provide comprehensive dietary advice for those with varicocele. It is a must-read.
So that's some great advice for varicocele treatment. Now, all of the above is just a small fraction of what is in my guide, and I have saved the best treatments for those support this website and actually get the book.
The book contains everything you need to know from how to cure the Nutcracker Syndrome, to what proper testicular care entails, to the exact lifestyle changes that you must make to cure your varicocele. It really is a must read for every guy. I wish I was taught this stuff when I was young. It is a game changer in term of infertility, testosterone, pain, and varicocele swelling.
WARNING: VARICOCELE SUPPLEMENTS (MAGIC CURE!)
Hey guys, be very careful of the supplement scams that are out there. So many people are claiming to cure varicocele with a simple supplement formulation. I can tell you 100%, after helping over 1000 clients, that supplements are a minor part of varicocele treatment. Don't fall for the quick-fix-magic-pill gimmicks. Watch the video to learn more. Or keep reading for the details here.
Right now we don't have a 100% cure for varicocele, but there is a lot that we can do, and that is more than good enough. Varicocele natural treatment is about the following:
1. MUST ADDRESS TOXIC BLOOD POOLING
Note: Supplements (e.g. horse chestnut, pine bark / grape seed extract, bilberry extract, etc.) only address a small portion of toxic blood pooling.
2. MUST CORRECT CONTROLLABLE VARICOCELE RISK FACTORS
(MAKE LIFESTYLE CHANGES)
3. MUST PERFORM THERAPIES FOR VARICOCELE TREATEMENT
Chapter 2: Varicocele Pain
Look, you have to know where your pain originates from, what type of pain you’re experiencing, and what makes your pain worse. This simple education will both empower you in your self-treatment, and aid you in managing the psychological & emotional issues that come with having a varicocele.
Where is the Pain Coming From?
Testicle and/or Varicose Veins
A varicocele is pooled and stagnant blood in the veins of the testicle. Stagnant blood is toxic blood. It damages both vein & testicle. Moreover, stagnant blood also causes heat damage to the testicle.
So, when your blood pools and is stagnant you will experience pain from either/both the testicle and varicocele.
Pain originating from only the varicocele may be caused by physical damage, for example micro-trauma from excessive biking on bumpy roads, or pulling and tugging on your veins by masturbating aggressively.
Pain from the testicles is typically caused by either pooling of blood, or overheating. Pooled & stagnant blood causes two major dysfunctions: First, pooled blood is toxic and oxidizing. This damages both the testicle and sperm, causing pain. Second, it disrupts the heat exchange mechanism of the testicle, causing it to overheat. Well, let’s just say that you don’t keep the most important part of your existence outside of your body for no reason; your testicles need to be kept cool to function properly. Heat stress literally damages the testicles, and is a major cause of testicular pain.
The Different Kinds of Pain
Short-Term vs. Long-Term Pain
This is probably the most important section of the guide for understanding how the natural treatments work. Basically, you have short-term & long-term pain. Differentiating between them is a key part of understanding, managing, and healing your varicocele pain.
Short-term pain is caused by daily stressors. Daily stressors include heat stress, excessive abdominal pressure, blood pooling, & physical damage. To alleviate short-term pain, you simply have to alleviate these short-term stressors. Our goal in this guide is to minimize short-term pain, both daily and in the long run, allowing daily pain relief and long-term healing, respectively.
If you remove stressors in the long-term, you have healing of long-term pain. Long-term pain is caused by the accumulation of damaging short-term stressors. You can think of it as the accumulated result of years of heat stress, blood pooling, physical damage, & unhealthy habits. Alleviating these stressors allows healing to occur. I understand that long-term healing could take up to months to occur. It all depends on the severity of the varicocele and accumulated damage, as well as how well you follow the treatment plan recommended in this guide.
Just some final notes on the topic: The quick pain relief recommended in Chapter 10 only addresses short-term pain. Basically you alleviate the shot-term stressors by cooling, circulating, & resting. After 10-30 minutes most short-term pain will simply subside. Typically, any residual pain is from long-term damage; not short-term pain. You can address long-term pain by being consistent with The Fundamentals in Chapter 11, & following the Treatment Plan in the final chapter.
Feelings of Heaviness, Weighing Down, & Dragging
This is a mild type of pain that’s usually just felt when the varicocele is swollen excessively, and for prolonged periods. It is most common in grade 1 & 2 varicocele.
Feelings of Irritation, or Pain That’s Prolonged, Dull, or Aching
This type of pain is typically due to long-term exposure to mild heat-stress or blood pooling. It can also be caused when the veins are tugged, pulled, or squeezed tight. This pain is common with all grades of varicocele.
Pain that’s Sharp, Unbearable, or Throbbing
This intense type of pain is typically due to exposure to extreme stress, for example: Very high scrotal temperatures, and heavy blood pooling with impaired circulation. It may also be caused by tugging, pulling, or squeezing tight of the testicle or varicocele.
This type of pain is in your head. Yes, this type of pain exists. Yes, it can be intense. And yes, it is common. Previous experience with intense pain, anxiety about the pain, or psychological and/or emotional stress can trigger this type of pain. It can be experienced by any grade of varicocele. Note that this type of pain may be common amongst people who get surgery.
What Worsens Varicocele Pain?
What This Guide Covers
The following factors worsen varicocele pain: Heat stress, excessive blood flow, poor blood circulation & blood pooling, excessive abdominal pressure, physical damage, psychological & emotional factors, as well as an unhealthy lifestyle. The following chapters of the guide will focus on addressing all of these factors.
Just for Your Information
Pain is typically lowest in the morning after sleep & gradually worsens as the day goes on. This means that you should expect your pain to be most severe at night before sleep. Similarly, the varicocele swelling is also smallest in the morning & biggest at night.
Individuals with higher grade varicocele do typically experience pain more often, and with higher severity than those with lower grade varicocele. However, those with lower grade varicocele can also experience frequent & severe pain.
Just a final note, unless treated, both varicocele severity & pain symptoms typically worsen with age. Don’t worry though, this guide will teach you how to prevent and reverse the worsening of your pain symptoms.
