Mr. Daniel Johnson, B.Sc.
It seems like doctors lose all rationality as soon as you're diagnosed with varicocele. They blame your varicocele on unknown factors. They say that any symptoms that you may have (e.g. infertility, low testosterone, testicular pain, hypogonadism, etc.) is also because of your varicocele. Now, they give you one of two options:
Oh, and if you have pain, they might recommend some pain killers.
If you get "lucky" and get a really "good" doctor, he might recommend a scrotal supporter.
Seems like all rationality and the last 1,000 years of medical and scientific advancement goes right out the window.
Your doctor is likely setting you up for failure with all of these strategies!
✗ Wait & See If Your Varicocele or Symptoms Will Improve
As it turns out, when it comes to varicocele, the worst thing that you can do is: Wait! Both varicocele grade and severity increase with time if left untreated. So, telling you to "do nothing" and "wait and see" is the same as telling you that there is nothing that can be done to improve your condition other than to wait until it is bad enough for you to be forced to have surgery. Yep, setting you up to fail.
✓ Don't Do "Nothing"!
Don't wait for surgery. If you have a varicocele, there is a lot that you can do. Sign up for the 100 Free Varicocele Treatment Tips & see for yourself.
✗ Take Pain Killers
If you have varicocele pain, it is pretty normal for your doctor to recommend temporary pain relief medication. But, the problem is that these medications typically have the symptom of worsening digestive health. Poor digestive health is a varicocele risk factor. So, when get off these medications, when you get off them, your symptoms typically worsen!
✓ Improve Digestive & Bowel Health
Constipation, poor digestive health, irregular bowel movements, and bloating all varicocele risk factors. They exacerbate the Nutcracker Syndrome. So, if you have any of those risk factors, you'll notice improvement of your varicocele and symptoms by correcting them!
✗ Scrotal Supporters
I find this one really backwards. Doctors treat testicular varicocele as if it is a varicose veins in the legs, and recommend that you wear compressive undergarments to help improve testicular blood circulation. While it sounds like it makes sense at first, it completely ignores that the testicles are completely different than the legs... Sure, compression helps, but, normal scrotal support underwear overheats the testicles, and at the same time prevent the testicles from dropping down to cool. Oops, they missed the only reason why you have a scrotum.
✓ Proper Scrotal Support Underwear
Proper scrotal support underwear takes into consideration that your testicles need both scrotal support and maximum cooling. Avoid generic brands. Get STUD Varicocele Therapeutic Underwear.
✗ Surgery or Embolization?
Which is better: Embolization or varicocelectomy?
✓ Avoid Both!
Both surgery & embolization are bad options! Don't fall for the surgery vs embolization marketing tactic. Embolization is typically sold as a "non-surgical" alternative to varicocelectomy (surgery), with only a small "small incision", "no general anaesthetic", and on an "out-patient bases". Hmmm, that sounds great, right?
Hmmm, I think we forgot something... Oh yeah, Results! Will it treat your varicocele? Will it improve your fertility and help you attain successful pregnancy? Will it cure your pain? Well, as it turns out the answer to all of these is "likely no", and "we're not certain". The science is really lacking on embolization. Surgery is likely also fairly ineffective for pain relief and improving pregnancy rates. The results for both surgery and embolization are uncertain.
But, you know what is certain? The risks of both surgery & embolization! Comprehensive: Surgery & Embolization Risks & Benefits >
✗ We Don't Know What Causes Varicocele
Genetically faulty valves? Nutcracker syndrome? We just don't know what causes varicocele! There is nothing that you can do, but blame your infertility on varicocele. Blame your testicular pain on varicocele. Blame your hypogonadism on varicocele. Forget your shitty lifestyle: The fact that you sit 8-12 hours a day on a cushion chair that traps heat for work, or the fact that you've inactive, or that you chain smoke. No! Forget about all of that, and just focus on varicocele--that's the real problem here. And, there is NOTHING that you can do about it.
✓ There is a Lot That You Can Do!
Actually, when it comes to varicocele, infertility, testicular pain, etc. there is a lot that you can and should be doing! Here is a quick and easy example: When it comes to infertility, even if caused by "varicocele", is there really nothing that you can do? What about being more active? What about cooling down your testicles? What about improving your diet and managing your stress?
There are many specific varicocele lifestyle risk factors, and many at home varicocele natural treatments. Now, again, just sign up for the 100 Free Varicocele Treatment Tips and see for yourself. Or, start with one of my Varicocele Natural Treatment Programs now & get varicocele under control!
