    I dont know about this therapy but I will for sure research more info about it; I believe natural treatmens are better. I have been dealing with prostate problems for a couple of years, I am on my 50s already so I guess it’s pretty normal, I spent many time on internet researching for ways to cure it and I tried many things but it was so frustrating because they didnt help me, my urologist recommended me some medicaments and I tried some but it was such a waste of money I gave up, I was frustrated until my friend told me about his experience and how a natural supplement named alpharise helped him so I decided to try it and its really good, it helped me so much, I am happy with the results now i am trying to complement it with a healthy alimentation and avoiding alcohol and smoking.
