There a several conditions that can affect the prostate gland.
Many men opt for medical solutions which normally consist of:
- 5-alpha-reductase inhibitors
- Alpha Blockers
- Varying types of surgery
Medical solutions come with their drawbacks.
Side-effects from medications and the potential complications that come with surgery.
This is why many men are seeking alternative treatments, natural medicines and homeopathy.
It may come as quite as surprise that many men don’t know where the prostate is actually located.
They experience the frustrating and embarrassing symptoms from conditions such as Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) but are unaware of where this gland actually is.
The three conditions that affect the prostate are:
- Prostate cancer
- BPH – Prostate gland enlargement
Out of those three, BPH is the most common in men.
So where exactly is the prostate gland found?
The prostate gland sits between the bladder and the penis and it controls the flow of urine.
The prostate also plays a part in ejaculation by pushing fluid out into the uretha.
Symptoms of the most common prostate condition (BPH) affect urination and they are:
- Trouble starting and stopping urine flow
- Dribbling after urination
- A constant feeling of wanting to urinate
- A weak urine flow
- Feeling like the bladder never empties
So what are the homeopathic alternatives for treating an enlarged prostate?
One of the most effective homeopathic medicines for treating an enlarged prostate is called Sabal Serrulata.
Sabal serrulata is commonly known to herbalists as Saw Palmetto.
It’s a small palm typically grown and found in the South East of America.
Its usually found in coastal areas and is drawn to sand for its growth.
In fact for over 100 years, Saw Palmetto has been used medicinally to treat prostate problems.
The extract of Saw Palmetto works by restricting the amount of testosterone that transforms into DHT.
DHT is thought to be responsible for cell growth within the prostate gland.
The symptoms of BPH can be embarrassing and many men are reluctant to visit their Doctor.
That’s why having access to good information online is critical.
The information can be researched and natural, homeopathic medicines can be purchased online and delivered to you in the comfort of your own home.
Hydrangea, also known as seven barks, has been used for centuries for treating prostate enlargement.
Hydrangea is also used to treat kidney conditions so its a good all round natural medicine for treating issues to do with elimination.
Sabah Serrulatum is another very effective homeopathic remedy for treating problems relating to urine flow.
It helps with the regeneration of cells around the uretha and the prostate.
