The Prostatitis Foundation

Purpose and Limitations of this site

 

This website exists for prostatitis patients, who have been left in the dark too long. It is dedicated to the idea that patients know something about what is wrong with them, and deserve to know as much as they can.

Because many patients have been from doctor to doctor, from painful and humiliating exams to being told it is "all in their heads," the typical prostatitis patient is eager for any scrap of news that may help. This site is dedicated to providing that information.

The only standard to which we hold information is whether it relates to prostatitis. We do not check for "scientific accuracy," because, so far, the scientific community has not yet provided a cure. (We think it can and should provide a cure if enough research can be focused on the problem.) We do not exclude the results of thousands of years of medicine from other cultures, nor do we exclude herbal or homeopathic medicine, meditation, yoga, biofeedback, or any other conceivable approach to relieving the pain and stress of prostatitis.

We also make no promises about the information here. Some of the information may be worthless. We leave it up to the patient to decide what is helpful to him. There is no guarantee that the information here is truthful, that the providers of that information actually hold the degrees they claim, or that medicines or surgical techniques mentioned here are safe or effective.

Prostatitis sufferers will use their own good judgment to decide, from the information provided here, and available elsewhere, what they are going to take seriously. Most of the writers who have contributed to this site are not doctors. Nobody should attempt medical diagnosis over the Internet, and nothing that is on this site should be construed as medical advice.

On the other hand, because this site is dedicated to prostatitis, it will not promote or advance information on other diseases or conditions or on topics which do not relate directly to prostatitis care and cure. Personal attacks, slanders, invectives and feuds do not belong here. Neither do blatant commercial appeals or money-making schemes.
