Is your prostate interfering in your every day’s activities? An unhealthy prostate doesn’t only interfere with your daily life it also undermines your health. As men are aging, it is not uncommon to experience different urinary problems such as a frequent urge to urinate, dribbling and a reduced flow of urine, the feeling that you have to go urgent. The medical term for this is Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) called an enlarged prostate.
As men age BPH is not the only problem that shows up on the radar. Prostate cancer can also affect one in seven men over the age of 60. The name for cancer is Prostatic Intraepithelial Neoplasia (PIN). It is important not to get those two mixed up; the problem is both, BPH and PIN, can bring on the same urinary symptoms. These symptoms are so similar even doctors have troubles telling them apart.
Men as young as over 40!
A small percentage of men in their forties can have symptoms of enlarged prostate. In most cases it affects more than 50 percent of men in their sixties and 90 percent of man in their seventies and eighties. Having any of the symptoms most likely is an enlarged prostate only. Many times prostate cancer comes without any symptom or warning sign. Indication of cancer is pain during urinating, as well as bone pain. Recurring or constant pain in the bones may also be an indication; another one is swelling and blood in the urine.
Examination and blood tests are the most efficient ways to detect this type of disease.
What brings on the symptoms?
The prostate is a small internal gland and is part of the male reproductive system. With age the prostate gland can enlarge and this enlargement interferes with the flow of urine. Obesity can also cause urinary incontinence by putting extra strain on the bladder. Chronic constipation can weaken the bladder and can give similar symptoms. Often people with urinary problems minimize the amount of liquid they drink to have less trips to the bathroom. Reducing fluid intake can cause infection and more problems than it solves. It is better to choose the liquids wisely.
When you were young you could urinate properly a long distance or even over the fence. You would have noticed that you can’t do this anymore; it goes straight down and is difficult at times to avoid getting your shoes wet. Are you getting up umpteen times during the night running to the bathroom? If you can relate to any of these symptoms, there’s something wrong in the water department.
If the enlarged prostate is found severe, surgery is often recommended; if it occurs than this be the very last option. Fortunately there are safer alternatives to ease prostate problems.
Reducing the symptoms by 50 percent in less than five weeks!
Science constantly uncovers many natural herbs, vitamins, minerals and supplements contributing to alternative health improvement including prostate. The benefits: Natural herbs have no side effects or involve any risk unlike drug medication or operations. Conventional treatments for prostate problems have little to do with the body’s ability to heal itself. Avoid foods and drinks that irritate the bladder. Natural herbs and supplements can restore the prostate and bring back a normal life.
Lycopene is found in tomatoes; this nutrient is a strong antioxidant carotenoid. The power of lycopene does not only reduce inflammation, it also stops the growth of prostate tissues.
European research has shown that the power of lycopene decreases the risk of aggressive cancer with increasing blood lycopene levels. If all of them included in a supplement such ingredients as lycopene, pumpkin – seed, Zinc, quercetin, stinging nettle, pomegranate, pygeum, phytosterols and omega 3 and 6 essential fatty acids will have a positive effect on cancer.
The next superb herbs are Saw Palmetto, Cucurbita pepo, C pepo and Zinc. All of them have different properties and inhibit the growth of prostate cancer. These herbs taken individually or as a supplement as in tablet or capsule with all the necessary herbs combined. Enlarged prostate will have a positive improvement in urinary flow and in all other symptoms.
