Mailbag! Nighttime Peeing Problems Solved!
Dear Living Well Daily Reader,
You’ve got questions…
We’ve got answers!
Nothing can interrupt your good night’s sleep like frequent trips to the bathroom.
And as uncomfortable as this condition is, managing it isn’t worth losing your life to risky drugs. But if you’re taking Big Pharma’s newest nighttime urination solution, you could be gambling with some serious heart issues.
Fortunately, there’s an all-natural way to deal with late-night dances to the bathroom.
Let’s dive in…
I have to visit the bathroom at least four times every night. I’m losing sleep and waking my poor wife at all hours. Do you know if there’s a natural way to solve my bladder trouble without turning to prescription meds?
Thanks for the very important question, Jim. Many guys, especially those with prostate issues, are losing plenty of sleep to those nighttime bathroom runs.
If you’ve been following the news, you may have heard that there’s a newly approved drug called Noctiva that’s supposed to help. But it comes with some very serious and risky side effects.
In fact, it’s so potentially threatening to your health, it’s hitting the market with a black-box warning about how it can drop your sodium to dangerously low levels.
Low sodium levels are dangerous for everyone but can be particularly troublesome for folks who suffer from high blood pressure or congestive heart failure.
Taking this drug only reduces your trips to the bathroom by one or two a night.
This means the FDA has signed off on a medication that can make your health swirl the drain and delivers only minimal relief.
Thankfully, there’s a natural solution for this problem that’s been used by African healers for centuries.
It’s called pygeum, and it’s chock-full of special compounds that can reduce inflammation and help you stay out of the bathroom. In one study, men who took 50 mg of pygeum for two months saw their nighttime trips to the loo significantly decrease.
Imagine that — more sleep for you and your wife without the health risks!
Even better, in this same study, men also saw a 40 percent reduction in prostate symptoms and a 23 percent increase in urine flow.
You can pick up pygeum at natural health stores as a stand-alone supplement or as part of a prostate formula. Just make sure you’re getting enough. Much of the research on pygeum has focused on doses from 50–100 mg.

It always puzzles me how anyone thinks we can spray toxic chemicals on our crops and NOT have them affect our health! Because despite what food manufacturers may claim, chemical residues from pesticides and herbicides show up on (and IN) the conventionally grown food we eat. And research makes it clear that these creepy chemicals...
I think you’ll agree that aging should come with some perks. And chief among them is FINALLY having the time to relax and enjoy the retirement you earned. But that’s awfully hard to do if you’re losing your eyesight due to macular degeneration. Instead, your golden years become tarnished by having to focus on learning...
How does that old saying go? An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. We all know it’s easier to STOP something from happening in the first place than to repair the damage after it’s happened. And with all of its complications, including shortening your lifespan, type 2 diabetes is well worth preventing!...
I’ve had patients make some pretty strange claims about their arthritis. Many folks swear they can “feel a storm coming” in their joints. And I’ve heard this one so often (and had them be spot-on about that storm) that I believe it’s true. Other patients claim their joint pain gets worse when eating tomatoes. And...
If you’re “of a certain age,” I bet you remember that iconic old slogan from the late 70s, “A mind is a terrible thing to waste.” It always springs to mind when I see a sharp person’s memory start to fade away. They soon become unable to make decisions for themselves. Eventually, they even have...
Dear Living Well Daily Reader, “Most of my family has been hit with COVID. We’re thinking it’s the latest variant. Are there any extra, new recommendations for protecting yourself against the variant? (Aside from washing your hands?) My husband and I have tested negative so far, but we want to be careful.” –Tammy from Lancaster,...
If you have diabetes, it’s almost certain that your conventional medical doctor put you on a blood sugar-lowering drug. And there’s ALSO a strong possibility that the drug makes you feel terrible. Common side effects include gas, bloating, upset stomach, kidney issues, and fatigue. Even worse, over time, these drugs become less effective. So even...
Okay, I’ll admit it. There have been times I’ve found it tough to maintain an optimistic outlook these last few years. And I’m not alone. Studies show that unhappiness and loneliness are on the rise. That’s TERRIBLE news for our health. Because when you combine the two, it can deliver a devastating blow to your...
It’s the nuttiest time of year. And I’m not just talking about the decorating, shopping, and holiday chaos… I’m literally talking about NUTS. Sure, we eat these tasty treats all year round. But when the holidays approach our nut consumption goes through the roof. We eat more nuts from October through December than any other...
Regular readers know I’m gaga for coffee. My favorite brew is downright delicious, of course. But even better, coffee is packed full of powerful phytochemicals that are natural antioxidants. In other words, coffee helps fight off the free radicals that play a role in heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and more. But I get asked a...
