Prostate cancer is the most common types of cancer of men in Sweden. This article will explain the disease process from Meta-Medicine point of view.Here follow the statistic. Observe that prostate cancer is almost 5 times more common than number two on the list, which is skin cancer. (Statistic from www.cancerfonden.se 2006)
Per cent Number of cases
36,8 9 882 Prostate cancer
7,5 2028 Skin cancer, excluding malign melanoma
6,7 1 806 Lung cancer
The Biological function of the prostate in the body
In the prostate a thin floating liquid is produced which at the moment of semen discharge is mixed with the semen cells. The liquid provides nutrition to the semen cells so that they will be able to swim the long way to fertilize the egg cell. In other words, the liquid makes the male sperms good enough to be fertilized. The growth and function of the prostate is stimulated by the mail hormone testosterone.
The cause of prostate cancer from a Meta-Medicine point of view
What often lies behind cell growth (a tumour) in the prostate is a subjectively experienced “ugly” territory conflict. This conflict is often linked to emotional problems or circumstances that are related to the man “not feeling man enough”. A man used to need a strong territorial instinct in the past when it was his duty to protect his woman and his children. There could be as many as 15 children in a family in those days. A man has it in his genes that he needs to have a say. When a woman leaves a man he cannot reproduce, which in the old days meant he was not able to survive. Our genes have not changed much for the last 50 years, even if we drastically have changed our way of living.
Below we will list a number of conflicts that have been reported within the Meta-Medicine network, here summarized by Johannes Fisslinger, President and founder of the Meta-Medicine network.
- A man discovers that his wife is cheating on him with a younger man
- During a divorce process ”ugly” things come out in the open
- A young woman left her husband for a younger more vital man
- A farmer was forced to give away his farm to a son against his will
In the Conflict Phase there is cell growth in the prostate which enlarges it. Typical symptoms are that the prostate starts pushing against the urinary urethra which makes the man want to urinate more often. Following a long and intensive conflict a tumour develops.
The biological purpose of an enlarge prostate is that the production of the thin flowing liquid increases.
If the man does not resolve the conflict the tumour continues growing. If he resolves the conflict he goes into regeneration phase. In that case the tumour is either quickly eliminated by the help of tuberculosis, TB, bacteria or encapsulated if there are not enough of them. Inflammation is a normal complication in the regeneration phase.
Cancer in the prostate is most common among men over 70 years of age. According to the Swedish Cancer Foundation, the disease is unusual before the age of 50.
In Sweden, like the rest of Europe and the USA, cancer in the prostate is very common; however it is very unusual in countries like China and Japan. This could be due to the fact that men in these countries do not regard the woman as a threat against their masculinity. In China and Japan the male makes decisions and the female submits to his wishes.
Lets also discuss what has happened in the western developed world since the 1940s from a socio-political point of view. After the second world war women were forced to go out working as they were needed in industry and thus their liberation began. A woman was no longer dependant on a man. The old rule, that the man was the breadwinner and the woman took care of the home and children didn’t work anymore. Still today, man and woman are finding new ways to relate to each other. During this development period conflicts have become more common relating to “not being man inte the house”. That conflict was rather unusual before the 1940s.
