Thousands of men will die from stubbornness this year
I once saw a road sign on my way to Arizona that read “thousands of men will die from stubbornness this year”. I decided to research the billboard a little more to find that the US government initiated this campaign to bring awareness not only to the issue of prostate but to all aspects of male health.







According to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality

  • Men are 24 percent less likely than women to have visited a doctor within the past year and are 22 percent more likely to have neglected their cholesterol tests.
  • Men are 28 percent more likely than women to be hospitalized for congestive heart failure.
  • Men are 32 percent more likely than women to be hospitalized for long-term complications of diabetes and are more than twice as likely than women to have a leg or foot amputated due to complications related to diabetes.
  • Men are 24 percent more likely than women to be hospitalized for pneumonia that could have been prevented by getting an immunization.




A man once came to my office on his 6 week sabbatical after prostate surgery. He had heard about Reflexololgy and the health benefits. Only in his early 40’s he was concerned that after his recovery he would not be able to satisfy his wife, he was plagued by those far reaching consequences. All his personal research did not leave him with a very positive feeling about their sexual future. Included was the personal testimony of his barber who had the same operation some 18 months before and still had not had an erection. On his 10th session he came to my office with a 40 ouncer of Crown Royal as a gift. He placed it on the table with the words I will never forget - "I thank you, my wife thanks you, and my urologist wants to see you."

I did have an appointment with the head of urology in Montreal at the Montreal General and we spent 2 hrs talking about Reflexology and it’s benefits. He was also impressed by the calming effects to the urinary system, one that does not respond well to medication, namely renal colic.
