Having an enlarged prostate can be an extremely embarrassing, frustrating and tiring ordeal.
It’s depressing when you’ve looked after yourself for most of your life then suddenly get hit with this uncomfortable problem.
There are a lot of solutions out there for men that have an enlarged prostate but most of them are medical solutions.
There are some good natural remedies out there if you know where to look.
We’ll look at those shortly
It can seem like medical solutions work but, the fact is most of them hide the symptoms and don’t address the root cause.
Medical drugs may provide some initial relief but the prostate can continue to grow and cause problems.
I’m sure most men agree that getting to the root cause is the best and only way forward for long term health.
There are other potential negatives from taking medical remedies.
Most come with undesirable side-effects.
Two of the most common medical drugs are Flomax and Doxazosin.
These two medical drugs are actually Alpha Blockers.
It’s critical to check with your Doctor before taking any treatments, medical or natural.
Flomax once taken can cause extreme dizziness and even fainting as it causes a big drop in blood pressure.
*It’s advised to not take Flomax as a way of lowering blood pressure.
Known side-effects of Flomax are:
- Severe skin reaction
- Headache, chest pain
- Abnormal ejaculation
- Back pain
- Low libido
- Vomiting and diarrhoea
No man really wants to risk experiencing those side effects on top of the enlarged prostate symptoms they already have.
So, what are the natural alternatives and do they work? Can natural remedies cause side effects?
There are a number of natural remedies one can use to help reduce an enlarged prostate.
Lifestyle changes are an important to incorporate into ones life to help with this condition.
Diet and nutrition is one area that often gets overlooked.
Dairy, especially milk has been proven to cause issues with prostate gland growth.
Drinking milk does in fact increase the risk of prostate cancer.
Hormones contained in milk can cause unnatural growth in glands such as the prostate in men and the breast in women.
There is a seed that is very effective for prostate health in general. It’s low cost and doesn’t come with any side effects.
This prostate cancer preventer is … Flaxseed.
Flaxseed has be proven to help protect the prostate and lower the risk of prostate cancer.
A good clean diet, free from pesticides is really going to help support good health specifically in the prostate gland and in general.

Animal protein can cause inflammation in the body. An enlarged prostate is inflammation.
A plant based diet can protect you from the leading causes of death and once more, it comes without any side effects.
If you’re not willing to change you dietary habits and find it difficult to give up meat, eggs and diary then there are some other less effective options available to you.
