One medical feat chalked up by a Ghanaian medical officer and plant medicine specialist, Dr De-Gaulle Moses Dogbatsey, which has overwhelmed medical practitioners and manufacturers of orthodox medicine in the western world is the cure for Benign Prostate Hyperplasla (BPH) or enlarged prostate gland.
This medical breakthrough, recorded by the Medi-Moses Prostate Centre at the Adenta Old Barrier in Accra, has earned Dr Dogbatsey, the proprietor of the health facility, international recognition for his outstanding contribution to the healthcare sector.
He has accordingly been honoured with several International awards including the IAE International Arch of Europe Quality Award, during the august ceremony held in Frankfurt, Germany, recently. The ceremony was attended by representatives from 178 countries with outstanding credentials within the business and diplomatic communities.
The essence of the award was a symbol of commitment to leadership, technology and innovation, making the recipients models for others in their respective sectors.
According to Dr Dogbatsey, a trained medical doctor from the School of Medical Sciences of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), in Kumasi, he started working under the tutelage of his father, who owned the Medi Moses Clinic and Herbal Centre, in 1993, while a student of KNUST.
He said after training at the medical school he started working at the KomfoAnokye Teaching Hospital (KATH), also in Kumasi, while still in touch with his father’s clinic.
According to Dr Dogbatsey, he assisted his father at the time to produce 37 different types of herbal products that could cure all kinds of diseases including hypertension, diabetes, malaria, typhoid, among others.
Later, when Dr Dogbatsey was promoted to the rank of a Senior Medical Officer at KATH, he decided to go back to KNUST to study at the Faculty of Pharmacy in the Department of Pharmacognosy for his Master of Philosophy (MPhil) degree in Pharmacognosy.
After his specialisation, Dr Dogbatsey was seconded by KATH to the Centre for Scientific Research into Plant Medicine at MampongAkuapem to head the Clinical Research Department, a position he held between 2004 and 2008.
He left the centre to establish the Medi Moses Prostate Centre, which specialises in treating enlarged prostate.
Dr Dogbatsey came up with a specially formulated 100 per cent food supplement called Prostacure, used for improving urinary flow in men with BPH.
According to the international award-winning medical doctor, the prospective study carried out in 7,000 patients between 40 and 70 years with varying degrees of enlarged prostate gland over a period of four years showed complete improvement in their BPH symptoms within two to eight weeks.
The herbal treatment using Prostacure led to a remarkable improvement in symptoms of BPH, such as straining or difficult urination, incomplete emptying of the bladder, frequent urge to urinate, hesitancy, intermittence or interruption in urine flow, weakstream of urinary flow and frequent urination in the night.
The most novel finding is the drastic reduction in the size and weight of the prostate gland to the normal weight of 40 grams and below, within two to eight weeks of treatment using Prostacure.
There was also enhanced libido and sexual function after treatment. This is especially good news for men who have tried conventional therapies for BPH and experienced a decline in sex drive and performance accordingly.
According to Dr Dogbatsey, orthodox treatment of BPH is not effective and can only be corrected through surgery which comes with a lot of complications and the possibility of patients losing their lives.
He said as a result of the efficacy of the herbal formulation people came from all over the world including the United Kingdom, the United States of America, Canada, among others, to his facility for treatment.
Dr Dogbatsey is married to Mrs Juliana Adyzie Dogbatsey, the Administrator of the Medi Moses Prostate Centre. He is blessed with Six children: Peace, Amuzu, De-Gaulle Jnr, De-Gaullina, Curtis, and Obama. Peace Afi Dogbatsey the eldest of the children, is a Pharmacist who also has Master’s degree in Pharmacognosy from KNUST. Moses KojoAmuzu Dogbatsey, a graduate from University of Professional Studies, Legon, Accra is the Marketing Manager at Medi-Moses Prostate Centre. The rest of the children are still in School
Dr Dogbatsey is a Christian and worships at the Holy Ghost Temple of the International Central Gospel Church at Frafraha near Adenta in Accra.
– He enjoys swimming and also likes eating akple and okro soup.
