Natural Remedies to Help Prostate Problems, BPH

If you are urinating too frequently, feel pressure or burning in that area, or your sex life is being affected, you may have prostate problems, or BPH (benign prostate hyperplasia, found usually in older men when the prostate enlarges).

Symptoms include changes in urination, split urinary stream, weak stream, intermittent urination, dribbling of urine, “bashful bladder,” incomplete emptying, frequent nightly urination, or urinary incontinence.

Any pain associated can be within the prostate, localized or radiate to the pelvis, above the pubic bone, in the perineum, or in the upper thighs. There can be fever and chills, urging to urinate, as well as frequent and painful urination.

Possible signs in the face include swollen lower eyelids that are rosy red colored (generally in elderly men), chin is prominent or cleft, or thick lower lip. This may also involve male hormone problems. Other signs may include receding, thinning hair, deficient hair growth in beard or too much hair growth on entrance of ear canal.

See a doctor if you have any of the following symptoms:

  • Inability to empty the bladder
  • Blood in the urine
  • Frequent urinary tract infections
  • Bladder stones

Urinary retention can permanently damage the bladder.

Modern medicine uses drugs that “shrink” the prostate, or reduce the aforementioned symptoms. There can be side effects from these drugs that cause other health problems (some causing impotence) besides having to take them for the rest of your life. Surgery is another medical option.

Natural ways to prevent or help prostate problems are: First clean up your diet, removing alcohol, black tea, coffee and tobacco. Second, change a sedentary lifestyle by exercising. Third, use the following healing protocol.

“Many people ask me what I would do if I got prostate cancer. If it was a slow-growing type, I would follow the advice of several prominent cancer doctors who suggest just leaving it alone. In their experience, they say that most men can survive 10 to 20 years without further problems and avoid the risk of surgical treatments and side effects from medications that can cause impotence and other urinary problems.

Of course, I would be monitored regularly by a doctor. I’m not one to rush into a big decision. I would, however, go on a vegan diet. Animal products are high in fat and may contain steroids and hormones (foreign estrogens and more) that adversely affect anyone’s health.” — Dave
