BPH and Prostate Cancer
Have you been diagnosed with BPH or Prostate Cancer?
Wondering about Natural Therapy? Then read on.
Chronic prostatitis and benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH or enlarged prostate) will usually respond well to naturopathic and natural medicine treatment. Prostate problems are often complicated by antibiotic suppression of more trivial infections of the urogenital tract such as urethritis. When male patients present for treatment of chronic urogenital or prostate issues they have usually had long suppression of their symptoms by medication without full resolution of the condition.
Naturopathic principles, a healthy lifestyle and diet are also important in the treatment of prostate problems, especially benign prostatic hypertrophy. Adequate zinc is important in the diet. A supplement may be necessary, but a traditional food medicine in the form of pumpkin seeds or oysters have been found specifically useful in the management of prostate issues. They are rich in zinc, but it also has other prostate-specific beneficial nutrients, as does pomegranate and berries such as blueberries.
There are many medicines useful in the management of benign prostatic hypertrophy. They will only be useful when prescribed to their exact indications and combined with lifestyle and dietary changes. Also, weekly prostate self-massage helps, and pelvic contraction exercises like the kegel exercises. Many of the same medicines and treatments also aid the effect of conventional treatment for the early stages of prostate cancer and help to keep PSA levels down.
Problems with sexual libido in men as well as women can respond to naturopathy. Treatments are similar to those used for prostate health.
The same is true for impotence, erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation. There are certain natural medicines that are traditionally indicated in combination with a healthy diet and stress management. Pelvic contraction exercises also help.
