Is there an alternative treatment for enlargement of the prostate gland?

BENIGN PROSTATIC HYPERPLASIA

Nearly half of men over the age of 65 suffer from this condition, also known as enlargement of the prostate gland, which can lead to problems with urination.

THESE MAY WORK:

AFRICAN PLUM: The bark of the tree contains compounds that have an antiinflammatory effect; improving ability to urinate.

SAW PALMETTO: Plant extract that may help with urgency and frequency by preventing testosterone from being converted into dihydro-testosterone which boosts prostate growth.

URTICA DIOICA: Extract of stinging nettle has antiinflammatory effects; could help with reduced urine flow.

RYE GRASS POLLEN: Anti-inflammatory thatmay reduce frequency of night-time urination and the amount of urine left in the bladder.

THIS WON'T WORK:

PUMPKIN SEEDS: Contain compounds thought to stimulate urination, thus relieving pressure, but not enough studies have been done to confirm this.
