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.

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.
