Semen

The human stomach cannot do anything with sperm once it is broken down. Seminal ingestion leads to indigestion acid reflux, nausea, hormonal imbalance especially in females and energy imbalance. http://dherbs.com/images/dherbs400x400.jpg
Semen is a bodily fluid secreted by the gonads of male animals.

In humans, semen contains spermatozoa and fructose as well as other enzymes which promote the survival of the spermatozoa. During a process known as ejaculation, the semen is ejaculated from the seminal vesicle in the pelvis, which is where it is produced.


Physical Composition

Because the semen passes through the ejaculatory ducts and mixes with fluids from the seminal vesicles, the prostrate, and the bulbourethral glands, semen is composed of many different fluids.
  • The seminal vesicles produce a viscous, fructose-rich fluid. This fluid makes up approximately 65-70% of the semen base.
  • The whitish secretion from the prostate contains enzymes, citric acid, lipids, and acid phosphatase. This secretion composes around 25-30% of the semen base.
  • The testes eject approximately 200-500 million spermatozoa during ejaculation. They compose about 2-5% of the semen composition.
  • The bulbourethral glands produce a clear secretion that increases the mobility of the sperm cells in the vagina and cervix. It lessens the viscosity of the channel that the sperm cells swim through and also adds a cohesive, jelly-like texture to the semen. The glands contribute approximately less than 1% to the overall semen composition.
The volume of semen per ejaculation varies. A comparison of thirty studies suggests that the average amount of semen ejaculated was around 3.4 milliliters, although some studies found amounts as high as 4.99 milliliters or as low as 2.3 milliliters. It is believed that a prolonged gap between ejaculations increases the number of sperm in the semen but not an increase of the overall amount of semen.


Health Effects

Studies have revealed mixed conclusions about the impact of semen on the human body.

Some of the alleged positive impacts suggest that vaginal absorption of semen acts as an antidepressant and reduces the risk of breast cancer, while oral sex may help make a woman's pregnancy safer and more successful because she is swallowing her partner's antigens. However, one study suggested that vaginal absorption of semen could accelerate the development of an already existing cervical cancer, due to the prostaglandin elements in seminal plasma. So results are inconclusive, and more studies are needed to definitively determine whether ingesting semen has beneficial or negative impacts on the human body.

However, it is worth noting that semen can be the vehicle for many sexually transmitted diseases, such as HIV/AIDS, herpes, or chlamydia. Although the proteins present in semen are potent against bacteria, fungi, and some viruses, these proteins are not active against Neisseria gonorrhoeae, which is the common cause of sexually transmitted diseases.


Cultural Practices and Beliefs

Some cultures view semen as imbued with special properties of masculinity. For instance, many tribes in Papua New Guinea (such as the Sambia and the Etoro) believe that semen provides sexual maturation to the younger men of the tribe. Because they view the older men's sperm as bestowed with the manliness and wisdom of the tribal elders, the younger men must fellate their elders to receive their authority and powers.

In ancient Greece, Aristotle considered semen to be very important and believed that there was a connection between blood and semen. He thought that the males concocted blood into semen using body heat. He also warned against engaging in sexual activities at too early of an age, fearing that the loss of semen meant a loss of valuable and much-needed nourishment.

Many ancient Eastern cultures believed that gemstones were drops of divine semen, which had coagulated after fertilizing the earth. In ancient China, for instance, some believed that jade was the dried semen of the celestial dragon.

Additionally, the orchid's twin bulbs were considered physically similar to a man's testicles. This popular conception probably gave rise to the ancient Roman myth that the flower originated from the spilled semen of copulating satyrs.

    Q: This is a rather embarrassing question but I cant seem to find an answer on the internet and don?t want to talk to it with my doctor yet. I started juicing about a month ago and am addicted. I have never had more energy and am really starting to feel better. I have read that certain juice combinations can change your urine color, but I have noticed that my semen has become darker. I am worried that it is blood, but I was curious if you have ever heard of juicing causing this?

    A:

    Semen, aka daddy's milk, can change color just like female breast milk. My ex-wife consumed a lot of alflafa herb one day and when you she pumped her milk for our newborn daughter one afternoon it was GREEN -- the color of the herb alfalfa.

    Seeing this was mind-boggling!

    However, eating healthier will undoubtedly change the color, smell, taste, and weight of body excrements. Carrots will even change the skin to orange if a person eats a lot of them.

    A lot of people may not experience what you are experiencing but it is natural for this to happen. The key in really knowing the health of your sperm is in the smell. Most men's semen has a stench due to diet. A healthy man's semen has no stench.

    Q: I am having a hard time getting pregnant. I am 38, did FSH blood- GREAT, HSG- tubes open, uterus clear, Semen Analysis- great.... but no baby. I have a 4 1/2 year old child and I had no problems. What can you suggest? Not good with fasting really- but can you give me some ideas on what to take?

    A:

    It may be your mate, Beloved. Both of you should work on yourselves. Not necessarily "fasting", but cleansing (TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE, TOTAL MALE CLEANSE) and then you should perform the FERTILITY CLEANSE.

    Q: My husband has sent you a question about painful erections. I just wanted to add these occur during the night and prevent sleep or during the day. They are not painful during intercourse. In other words they are unwanted erections. His pleasure during intercourse seems to be minimal. He seems to masturbate a lot and hence his vitality is low. As we are trying to get pregnant we do not want to decrease his fertility or increase his sex drive.

    A:

    Males get erect for a reason. They may seem unwanted to you guys, but not to the body. If it's not a bother to you, allow him to enter you (vaginally). The semen lost during masturbation could be inside of you for purposes of procreation. The more he gets to ejaculate inside of you, the more those painful erections will subside (and the better your chances of becoming pregnant). The erections are a subconscious body statement that he really wants to reproduce as well as that he is boiling with unexpressed creativity that only has an outlet via sexual intercourse. The more intercourse, the more those erections will subside. Or, he must learn to channel his sexual desire up to his higher charkas via yoga and other measures which would stimulate his pineal gland and crown center. Doing this, he'd become more spiritual and intuitive. You guys might also want to consciously have intercourse at night as the night-time (moon) supports conception. Go with the flow of Nature!

    Q: Hi, I have been suffering from a dull pain the testicular area for over 2 years now. I have seen 2 urologists that have confirmed that I have enterococcus bacteria in either the prostate of genital area based on semen culture. I have also done testicle ultrasound and CAT scan of the area with good results. One of the urologist said that I have an inflamed prostate (prostitis) there was some varicose veins when ultra sound was done but the urologist continues to give me long term antibiotics. Some my symptoms have been dull pain in the testicular area when I need to have a bowel movement. low energy, moody, memory loss, irritable, confused, brain fog etc. I use to have a health sex drive but now my sex drive is really low. A bit of erectile dysfunction but I think that comes more from having the pain all the time and anxiety. I don't know if this is possible but my penis seems to have reduced in size when erect. The doctor ask me to try some cialis for the ED which I did for a short while but decided I needed something natural because of the long term problems of using those medications. I have had long periods of stress from a bitter business relationship about 2 years ago. My concern is that every time I go to the urologist all they want to do it give me antibiotics and that doesn't seem to be working. I am concern of the other organ damage caused by taking long term antibiotics. Is there an alternative you recommend? I have been looking at your Anti- virus treatment. I am 30 years old.

    A:

    I would suggest you perform the FULL BODY DETOXfollowed by the TOTAL MALE CLEANSE. Read some of our free health articles too on male reproductive health. Healing begins with knowledge!

    Q: I need to get the Thyroid Formula again for myself. Also I was thinking of getting the Fertility Cleanse as well. I have gotten pregnant, but I miscarried early in the pregnancy. My tubes are clear; my husband has a good sperm count and motility. My thought was that your kit couldn't hurt to try. Yet I'm not sure I need to do all of it. Meaning I don't have any yeast problems, never had a disease, etc. What is your thought on this? Just do it all anyway and treat the whole area?

    A:

    IT NEVER HURTS TO CONSUME HERBS DUE TO THEIR POTENT PROPERTIES. PLUS HERBS CLEANSE AND PROVIDE NOURISHMENT. I'D SAY GIVE IT A TRY IN ADDITION TO EVERYTHING ELSE YOU'RE DOING. IF YOU ARE MISCARRYING EARLY, THEN YOU NEED TO REPROGRAM YOUR CERVIX TO HOLD A FETUS. THERE'S A DEFECT WITH THE CERVICAL SOFTWARE.

    Q: I am writing to you because I recently had my blood checked for hormone levels, it turns out I am producing more of some male hormone in large amounts. I think its called the DHAEs, in any case the endocrine specialist says it could be cysts on my ovaries or a tumor in my adrenals that is making my count 163 where a normal woman produces this hormone at a 79 count, of course I am not claiming any tumors, and I asked her to send me back to the lab to "retake" a sample...before I go back, I would like to try regulate the glandular function with your help and see if the results differ.

    A:

    HMMM, DHAE OR DE-HYDRO EPI-ANDROSTERONE IT'S CALLED AND IS SOMEWHAT UNIQUE BECAUSE THE HORMONE "ANDROSTERONE" IS UNISEXUAL AND BOTH SEXES OR GENDERS PRODUCE IT BUT IT'S REALLY A FEMALE HORMONE BUT HAS BEEN GIVEN OR ATTRIBUTED TO MALES TO BALANCE WOMEN HAVING 2 HORMONES: PROGESTERONE AND ESTROGEN, AND SO NOW MALES HAVE TESTOSTERONE AND ANDROSTERONE. WELL, CLEARLY A HORMONAL IMBALANCE AND DENOTES A DEFICIENCY WITH THE ENDOCRINE SYSTEM. RARELY, I WOULD AGREE WITH THE ENDOCRINOLOGIST IN THIS CASE BECAUSE DHAE IS PRODUCED IN AND SECRETED BY THE ADRENAL GLANDS. BUT YOU SEE, WHETHER OVARIES OR ADRENALS, YOU ARE DEALING WITH "GLANDS" AND IT STILL POINTS TO THE HORMONAL OR ENDOCRINE SYSTEM SO FOR SURE WE KNOW THE PROBLEM IS HERE WITH THIS BODILY SYSTEM (ENDOCRINE OR HORMONAL). FOR SURE ... I MOST DEFINITELY UNDERSTAND. WITHOUT A DOUBT I AM SUGGESTING THE TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE AND THE ADRENALIZER FORMULA (REMOVE ONE OF THE FORMULAS FROM THE TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE THAT YOU FEEL YOU DON'T NEED AND SUPPLEMENT WITH ADRENALIZER FORMULA.)

    Q: I wanted to touch base with you and let you know that I took yourTOTAL MALE CLEANSE about 2 months ago. Unfortunately, I did not really receive any health benefits from this session and my problem persists. My problem comes from excessive masturbation--excessive ejaculation. I have burning in my stomach, side, groin area, and testicles. This has been going on for over 4 years. It has gotten better but I am in not even close to being able to have sexual relations with a women. My testicles feel week and tingly most days. When I should be "getting excited" I feel tingling in my abdomen and side. I have tried a remedy from Dr. Lin's herbal supplements and this didn't give any substantial change. Do have any further suggestion?

    A:

    I CAN CLEARLY UNDERSTAND WHY YOU DIDN'T RECEIVE THE BENEFITS YOU WERE SEEKING WITH THE TOTAL MALE CLEANSE. YOU SEE, YOUR PROBLEM IS PSYCHOSOMATIC BUT MOSTLY PSYCHOLOGICAL AND EMOTIONAL IN NATURE. IT APPEARS YOU HAVE A 2ND CHAKRA IMBALANCE THAT NEEDS ADDRESSING. MOST OF THE WORK YOU REQUIRE IS ENERGETIC. HOWEVER, PERIODIC PERFORMANCE OF THE FULL BODY DETOX AND TOTAL MALE CLEANSE AND HEALTHY DIET HELPS REPAIR THE PHYSICAL DAMAGE FROM EXCESS MASTURBATION. I HIGHLY AND URGENTLY RECOMMEND YOU SCHEDULE A PERSONAL CONSULTATION SO WE CAN GET TO THE ROOT OF THIS PROBLEM. YOUR REMEDY IS NOT SOLELY IN A PRODUCT, BUT IN YOURSELF!

    Q: I have a myriad of health problems due to, I believe, excessive masturbation. Ailments include: Low hanging reddish testicles (at times) Epididymitis Pain and inflammation of the vas deferens Pain and "it seems" mild inflammation in the lower abdominal. Pre-mature ejaculation (I masturbate only once a month) could this be too much if my body is destroyed? At the onset I had penis shrinkage, and seminal discharge or oozing. Constant urination, dripping, pressure in the pelvis and/or bladder. I have tried a bunch of products but none have worked. Dr. Lin's herbal formulas for 8 months. Acupuncture with 4 different people. Chinese herbs with 2 of them. Ginseng tonic formulas. They are all expensive and I am having trouble affording everything. Life is hard enough without this type of problem. I need to avoid being ripped off. I would appreciate any feedback and/or correspondence.

    A:

    We have a similar situation that was part of the dialogue on our community board (under HEALTH board) that you should check out.

    I would recommend that you perform our Full Body Detox and our Total Male Cleanse and then follow these up with Male Hormonal Formula, Prostate Formula and Male Health Tea, and more importantly, give masturbating a break for a while.

    Also, soak in hot water and 2-3 boxes of sea salt daily.

    Q: I am reading on here that some of your product you have cure AIDS, HERPES AND OTHER SEXUAL DISEASE THAT CAN'T BE CURE.

I'm dying to know that. Do you have any product for male enhancement?

    A:

    Q: My biggest concern is how to proceed once pregnancy happens. Getting pregnant isn't my problem it's the getting past week 21. So, how do you feel about cervical cerclage? I have such mixed feelings. I can see the comfort in having it done, but the idea of it terrifies me. My cervix should be able to hold my baby on it's own! I've talked to my local birthing centers, and most of them won't touch me, given my history until week 36 when the cerclage would be removed. They have all suggested I have the procedure done. I would like your view on the subject?

    A:

    Have you read our article on "Surgery"? The first thing you should do is get your mind right. Consider purchasing and reading our "Mental Science Manual" e-book, which helps get your focus right (to focus on what you desire, but also to be present in the NOW). Think positive, maintain a PMA (positive mental attitude), visualize what you desire, eat healthy (raw foods and vegan foods), etc. Take matters one day at a time!

    Q: I have been diagnosed with prostate cancer - I was advised that I should receive a therapy called HIUF High Intensity Ultrasound Frequency - There is a company in Germany that uses this treatment for Prostate Cancer - They have a 98.0% success rate with their method...Have you ever heard of such a treatment. - The one thing that interested me is that it is not chemo or radiation... There is another one called Proton Therapy... What do you know about these treatments?

    A:

    These therapies are new and better/safer than chemo and radiation but remember, no therapy can undo bad diet, unhealthy lifestyle, and unhealthy/negative thinking. If you undergo the therapies, don't forget that disease conveys a message to you to change your life to the better. You did something to harm your prostate and no therapy can undo this fact! We have an article "MALE PROSTATE HEALTH" you may find interesting. Herbally, you'd fare well from the FULL BODY DETOX followed by the TOTAL MALE CLEANSE.

Quote of the day
"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition."
