Enlarged Prostate Treatment Options

The non-cancerous growth of the prostate gland is known as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). If the prostate grows in mature men, it pinches the urethra, or urine tube, and problems begin, including painful urination and frequent nighttime trips to the bathroom.

Researchers estimate that BPH affects about ten million men in the United States - some in their forties, half of all men older than fifty, and four out of every five men older than eighty.

The type of treatment needed for prostate enlargement depends on the severity of the signs and symptoms being experienced. Bleeding from the urinary system, serious or frequent urine infections that can cause more lasting damage, discomfort or lifestyle problems may all indicate that active medical intervention is required.

Natural Remedies for Prostate Enlargement

Saw palmetto has been widely tested since the beginning of the 1980s. Results have shown that saw palmetto reduced by nearly 50 percent the number of times BPH sufferers had to get up to go to the bathroom during the night and significantly reduced painful of difficult urination.

In 1998, researchers at the Department of Veterans Affairs reviewed more than a dozen studies involving saw palmetto. It found saw palmetto to be as effective as finasteride in reducing the size of an enlarged prostate and produce fewer side effects. The herbal alternative does work slowly with improvement in urinary symptoms within 1 to 3 months. If after that time there is no improvement then the herb should be discontinued. Additional research is required to determine the appropriate daily dosage of the supplement, its long-term effectiveness.

Nature's Health Associates provides natural prostate vitamins for the treatment of enlarged prostate. Our prostate vitamins are not cures, they are nutrients that, along with changes in habits, can help improve a man's prostate health and thereby narrow his chances of acquiring prostate problems.

Enlarged Prostate Symptoms and Treatment

Herbs, lifestyle changes may reduce symptoms of enlarged prostate, says Harvard Men’s Health Watch

Boston, MA— Symptoms of an enlarged prostate — known medically as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) — can range from a weak, slow urinary stream, to hesitancy and straining to urinate, to an inability to empty the bladder completely, to more serious complications including recurrent urinary tract infections and kidney damage.

If a man lives long enough, he will almost certainly experience some degree of BPH. Although 50%–60% of men with this condition may never develop any symptoms, BPH can make life miserable.

Among herbal remedies, saw palmetto seems to be the most promising. One large analysis of studies done on this herb found that saw palmetto reduced nighttime urination by 25% and other bothersome complaints by 28% when compared to a placebo. Side effects reported were mild and did not differ significantly from problems that the men attributed to the placebos.

Here are a few simple adjustments that can reduce the bother of BPH:
  • Reduce your consumption of fluids, particularly after dinner.

  • Limit your use of alcohol and caffeine, and avoid them after about 3 p.m. ; both increase urine flow.

  • Avoid medications that stimulate muscles in the bladder neck and prostate, as well as medications that weaken bladder contractions.

  • Never pass up a chance to use the bathroom, even if your bladder does not feel full.
