Broccoli SPROUT broth very effective

I tried the Broccoli broth treatment a while back, doing repeated cycles of 7 days and found it to be useful. (http://www.prostatitis.org/broccindex.html) I later tried a broth made with 2 oz Broccoli Sprouts simmered for 7 minutes in two cups of water, and found that to be more effective, with definite improvement in both swelling and flow.

I was in a Target store the other day and found a different kind of Broccoli Sprout called BroccoSprouts. (http://www.BroccoSprouts.com) These are more expensive and are made from a kind of sprout selected and patented by Johns Hopkins University which are guaranteed to contain 73 mg of Sulphorophane per oz. This they say is 20 to 50 times the amount of Sulphorophane in adult broccoli. With BroccoSprouts I use 1 oz in two cups of water, drinking one cup in the evening and the other in the morning, so a 4 oz package lasts me 4 days.

My impression is that I'm also getting some long term improvements with the sprout broth that I was not getting with the Broccoli broth. I don't know how much of the sulphorophane is transferred to the broth, but I find that the remaining 1 oz of boiled sprouts are much easier to eat than the head of boiled broccoli, which I used to throw away.

I am also taking Doxycycline, Elmiron (dramatically reduced pain, 2/day sufficient), 10 mg lycopene, 400iu d Alpha Vitamin E, 50 mg CoQ10, dried cranberries. (I understand the effective ingredient in cranberries is the red proanthocyanadins, not the acids, and I tolerate the dried cranberries much better than the juice.) I have convinced myself that each of these items cause some improvement. Tahitian Noni also caused some definite improvement, more than most other things I listed, but I've cut back on that lately because of the improvement with the sprout broth. MSM, maybe some improvement, but not enough. Stronger antibiotics caused temporary improvements.

I should add that I make my own yogurt (yogourmet brand) and take one serving every day. I find this is more effective in countering the effects of continual antibiotics than commercial yogurt.

This is well worth trying. Also, someone should determine (Dr. Shoskes?) if this has the same measureable antioxidant effect as quercetin. The BroccoSprouts should be a sufficiently standardized product for obtaining repeatable test results. I've never tried the quercetin because I'm not able to obtain elaborate bacteriological tests. I likely have a unilateral blob of c neg staph buried in biofilm that doesn't appear as a TRUS abnormality, and which is partially kept in its cage by the doxycycline. The BroccoSprout broth seems to be rattling that cage more effectively than most other things I've tried.
