If you are a male over age 30, then you've probably heard of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) or the more commonly used within an enlarged prostate. The prostate tends to enlarge as men age and in many cases can be problematic. The prostate, which is a gland in the male reproductive system and surrounds the urethra through which urine is eliminated from the bladder. The problem occurs when the prostate enlarges and squeezes the urethra, which restricts the flow of urine. Although most older men experience BPH that not everyone will have symptoms. In fact, BPH is not usually even treated unless symptoms are severe enough to become a problem. Low flow of urine, frequent urination, painful urination, and urinary tract infections can all be symptoms of an enlarged prostate.

BPH can be remedied through many different types of surgery. But what if you want try a more holistic approach in the first place? Well, there are a number of options to explore there. First, you have to adjust your diet to include more food organic, no hormones or pesticides, and try to limit or avoid alcohol, caffeine, dairy products, refined sugar and four, fried foods, junk foods and hydrogenated oils. High cholesterol levels can also lead to BPH so try to avoid foods with excessive cholesterol.

There are certain nutritional supplements can help reduce symptoms of an enlarged prostate. Amino acids, especially glycine, alanine, glutamic acid and can reduce urinary frequency, urinary urgency and urinary flow delay. Beta-sitosterol may also help reduce symptoms, as it tends to reduce levels high cholesterol. Flaxseed oil contains omega-3 fatty acids may also reduce cholesterol levels. In addition, pollen from the flowers has been used in Europe for many for the treatment of BPH.

Two of the most outstanding natural remedies for BPH are Saw Palmetto and plum. Saw palmetto comes from the fruit of a small palm tree that grows mainly in the southeastern United States. The fruit is rich in phytosterols and fatty acids. Some studies have shown that Saw Palmetto has a benefit effect on HBP, which led to the development of many dietary supplements that contain it. However, other studies have shown no difference between the saw palmetto and placebo in terms of its effect on BPH.

Pygeum comes from the bark of Prunus africana, which grows mainly in tropical Africa. It has also been used to reduce symptoms of BPH. Small studies have shown that Pygeum may well reduce the size of the prostate and helps in increasing urine flow, frequency and volume.

Therefore, there are alternative medicine options for BPH. Obviously if the symptoms of BPH are serious then drug therapy or surgery may be the only way to go, but a comprehensive approach from the outset could eliminate the need for surgery in the future. Always be sure to talk to your doctor about any alternative approach that can be considered as well as symptoms of BPH may be experiencing. BPH is one thing and cancer prostate is another so you want to be sure that you do not have a malignant condition and only your doctor can make the diagnosis.
