Natural Treatment for Prostate Enlargement

SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend


Prostate enlargement or benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is a common occurrence in aged males. Prostate, a walnut-shaped gland forms a part of the male reproductive system. It is situated below the urinary bladder in males, and besets the urethra, the outlet for urine. With aging the production of testosterone, the primary male hormone, falls. This decline in testosterone levels leaves higher amount of estrogen in blood. The estrogen hormone then starts reacting, producing substances that trigger multiplication and growth of cells in the prostate, thereby causing the gland to grow in size.

Another theory states that with age, males become incapable of producing DHT or dihydrotestosterone, a substance contained in the testosterone hormone. DHT keeps the size of prostate under check Poor production of DHT, causes the prostate to enlarge easily. Also at times the drop in testosterone levels may cause large quantities of DHT to collect within the gland, causing its enlargement.

Generally males above the age of 50 may suffer from this disorder. As the prostates surround the urethra, enlargement of the glands may put tremendous pressure on the urinary bladder, causing it to thicken and contract every now and then. Enlarged prostates also exert pressure on the urethra, thereby narrowing the tract. These lead to incomplete discharge of urine or partial emptying of bladder.

2. Hesitant, weak stream
3. Leaking or dribbling
4. Urinary retention
5. Straining to urinate
6. Pain while urinating
