As men age it is normal for the prostate to enlarge, and mens health to decline, especially on a high fat diet, or sadly the American diet.
When the prostate enlarges it causes problems.
The technical name for an enlarged prostate gland is benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).
Symptoms of BPH include:
- Trouble with urination
- Weak urine stream
- Frequent urination, especially at night
- Not feeling empty after urination
If left untreated prostate gland enlargement can block the flow of urine out of the bladder and can cause bladder, urinary tract or kidney problems.
The only remedy the average doctor has for mens health is drugs or surgery.
Some of the side effects of surgery are:
Laser surgery will reduce symptoms of enlarged prostate, but, over time, symptoms may return and you may need to undergo treatment again.
Some prolonged side effects include painful urination, semen entering your bladder, problems getting an erection, urinary tract infections, blood in your urine and bladder neck narrowing.
What Are The Natural Cures For BPH
Natural cures include Saw Palmetto, Beta Sitosterol, and Pumpkinseed oil.
Eating a diet low in fat and processed foods.
Your prostate loves zinc.
The mineral zinc may halt the processing of testosterone into DHT and thus may prevent or even reverse the condition.
Some people prefer to take zinc supplements for BPH.
If you decide to supplement with zinc, find one that is 100% natural and has Calcium added.

I’ve had great results with Shaklee’ Saw Palmetto Complex,
with frequent trips to the bathroom and waking up in the middle of the night
going to the bathroom two or three times.
After six weeks on the product I noticed that I could hold it longer
and I wasn’t waking up as often what a relief.
Taking something natural to help with BPH is a small price to pay
to heal an enlarged prostate is great much better than drugs or surgery.
