Natural Remedies for Enlarged Prostate – Shrink the Prostate in a Painless Way

A great number of men over the age of 50 suffer from prostate problems. The prostate is a male gland with the size and shape of a chestnut and is located around the beginning of the urethra. There are two disorders affecting the gland – prostate gland enlargement and inflammation of the gland.
Causes and symptoms

There are 2 warning symptoms that indicate prostate disorders – the need for frequent urination overnight and problems with the passing of urine. Other symptoms of the disorders include lower back pain and pain in the legs, feet or hips.
Below you can see 9 natural remedies for the enlarged prostate problem:

1.Chop and mix the following ingredients:
3.5 oz. of fresh celery root

0.7 oz. of pumpkin seeds (peeled)

Freshly squeezed lemon juice (1 lemon)

1 teaspoon of olive oil

Preparation

Mix all the ingredients until you get a homogenous mixture.

Use

Take a tablespoon of the mixture every night before going to bed to improve the condition of your prostate.

2.Eat sunflower seeds and almonds every day between 17:00 and 19:00. This is the best time for the body to process the seeds and improve the condition of your prostate.

3.Eat quail eggs between 17:00 and 19:00 every day for 2 weeks.

4.Drink 0.33 ml. of pumpkin oil 3 times a day for a month.

5.Add a tablespoon of dry hazelnut leaves to a cup of boiling water, then leave the tea to cool down and drink 2 tablespoons of the tea a few times a day. This will cure prostate adenoma and provide some much needed relief.

6.Put 4 cups of water in a pot with 1 oz. of chopped pine tree needles. Boil the mixture for 10 minutes on low heat, then strain the tea and pour it in 5 smaller cups. Drink the whole amount during the day.

7.Boil 10.5 oz. of water and add 3 tablespoons of grated asparagus, then pour the tea in a thermos for a couple of hours. Strain the liquid afterwards, and drink 3.3 oz. of the tea 3 times a day until you feel relief.

8.Add 40 drops of 20% alcoholic solution in half a cup of hot milk and drink the mixture 3 times before your meals every day.

9.Eat a mixture of 1 teaspoon of honey and a smaller onion bulb every day to relieve your prostate problems.

BPH Laser Treatment Options

What is BPH?

The gradual enlargement of the prostate is a non-cancerous disease common among aging men. The enlarged prostate can intrude into the urethra causing partial or complete obstruction of urine flow. This condition is referred to as benign prostatic hyperplasia, or BPH. While BPH is usually not life threatening, it can cause considerable discomfort, with complete obstruction leading to emergency surgery for resolution. Over half of all men over 50 have BPH symptoms, with the percentage growing to 80% of men over 80. Due to the overall aging of society, the number of men seeking treatment over the next 20 years is expected to increase.
Why Holmium?

Tissue Removal
The holmium laser is ideal for precisely and cleanly ablating without charring or overheating tissue. Since the holmium absorption depth is only .5 mm or less, tissue is ablated faster than heat is conducted into surrounding tissue. Holmium energy is delivered in a pulsed mode with each pulse containing enough energy to vaporize the tissue. The vaporized tissue is removed before it can conduct heat, which minimizes thermal damage. The resulting what-you-see-is-what-you-get effect contrasts to the coagulating effects of Nd:YAG and KTP lasers whose wavelengths penetrate deeper and extend below the visible tissue surface.

Hemostasis
Hemostasis with holmium is remarkably good. Its localized coagulation effect seals the tissue and provides hemostasis superior to electrocautery instruments without producing deeper thermal injury associated with Nd:YAG or KTP lasers. The holmium coagulating effect minimizes fluid absorption better than electrocautery.

The ablating and hemostasis features of holmium make it an excellent energy choice for BPH treatment. When stone fragmentation benefits are considered, the holmium laser is the best and most cost effective choice for treating both stone disease and BPH—two of the most common reasons patients visit the urologist.

Holmium Prostate Treatments
Since its introduction, holmium laser prostatectomy has undergone rigorous scientific studies that substantiate its surgical equivalence to the traditional electrocautery procedure (TURP) with fewer patient complications and faster patient return to normal activities. Whether performing holmium laser enucleation (HoLEP) or holmium laser ablation (HoLAP) of the prostate, the procedure can be done as a day case or in a 23-hour facility. HoLEP and HoLAP treatments offer many benefits including:

* Immediate removal of tissue and symptoms.
* Virtually bloodless and minimally invasive technique.
* Short catheterization time.
* Few complications.
* Short convalescence.
* Cost-effective solutions—hospitals gain unmatched economic benefits by utilizing the multipurpose holmium laser for stones, strictures, tumors AND BPH treatment.
