Ayurvedic Treatment For Prostate Enlargement - Why It Is A Concern?
In this article, we shall talk about Ayurvedic Treatment for Prostate Enlargement. Ayurvedic treatment is better for prostate cure as it does not have any side effects.
Does it seem to take forever to empty your bladder? Does it take too long to start the flow of urination when you try to go to the bathroom? Do you have to urinate so frequently that you often find yourself up all hours of the night just to make extra trips to the bathroom? Are business meetings excruciating to sit through because you are worried you won’t make it to the men’s room in time?
You may have the early signs of an enlarged prostate. While doctors say this is just a sign of getting older, Grocare believes there is a natural, non-invasive way to combat this problem, in men of any age.
An enlarged prostate does usually happen to men who are advancing in age, with over one-half of men suffering from an enlarged prostate by age 60. By age 85, that number climbs to 90%, according to the American Urological Association (AUA), but why are there so many men suffering from this health issue?
Prostate Enlargement Causes :
First, let’s look at what modern medicine says about the causes of an enlarged prostate and compare this to how Grocare sees the problem from a more holistic viewpoint.
When urine flows from the bladder through the urethra in men, an enlarged, chestnut shaped gland that is part of the male reproductive system – the prostate – presses against the urethra, blocking the flow.
The prostate becomes enlarged when its cells gradually multiply, and then put extra pressure on the urethra – a chute through which both urine and semen flow to exit the body.
Prostate Enlargement Symptoms :
- Unable to control the urge to urinate
- Difficulty in urination
- Feeling a burning sensation when passing urine.
- Dribbling of urine, especially after urinating
- A sense of not emptying the bladder
- Leaking of urine
- More frequent urination and a strong and sudden desire to urinate, especially at night
Why Is Enlarged Prostate Concern?
When the urethra becomes ‘squashed’ by the prostate gland, it has to work harder, and contract more vigorously to push the urine out of the bladder.
Because it is working so hard, the bladder muscle may become stronger, thicker, and more sensitive over time. It will think it needs to contract even when there is a tiny amount of urine in the bladder.
The truth is, though, that doctors don’t really know what causes an enlarged prostate. All they do is try to curb the symptoms, which could be attributed to how the cells communicate via their signaling pathways, or the release of certain chemical hormones in the body such as estrogen.
So What Should You Do?
Doctors will suggest that you change your lifestyle, avoiding alcohol, caffeine, antihistamines, and decongestants, while also limiting your fluid intake before bedtime. If your symptoms persist, then they will suggest that you take one of two different types of drugs commonly used to treat prostate enlargement: alpha-blockers or 5-alpha-reductase inhibitors. While these may act fast to get rid of the symptoms of the problem, they do not really solve the problem.
This is why surgery is often the next recommended step – at least by allopathic practitioners.
The only ‘cures’ for an enlarged prostate offered by modern medicine include medications or surgery, or both. This is because doctors don’t know the underlying cause, and therefore cannot address it.
The Real Reason For Prostate Enlargement :
From an Ayurvedic stand point, additional culprits that might be causing an enlarged prostate could be:
- Lack of movement, a sedentary lifestyle
- Over or under indulgence in sex (called Shakru Dhatu, it is the overuse of ‘essence’ in Ayurveda)
- Going to the restroom at irregular intervals (such as holding the urine in long after it needs to be released, or urinating too frequently)
- The consumption of dry food (not enough liquid intake)
- The consumption of very cold food
- Old age
- General weakness in the body
From the perspective of ancient Ayurvedic medicine, even your job can be a source of the imbalance you are experiencing in your body.
Also, both the aging process and the types of foods we eat can cause poor digestion. This causes what Ayurvedic practitioners call Ama. Ama refers to the sticky impurities that are created when digestion is weak and food is not digested completely. If this habit of eating bad food, and having poor digestion persists, the Ama mixes with the nutrient fluid called Rasa Dhatu and even our blood, or Raktu Dhatu, making it very difficult for the body’s purification system to work. Since most of the impurities in our body are excreted through our urine and feces, if our urine becomes overloaded with Ama, we are much more prone to infections or imbalances – such as an enlarged prostate.
Eventually these impurities reach the muscles and fat of our bodies, and even infiltrate our cells. This could likely be what causes the prostate to swell. The cell’s signaling becomes confused when overburdened with toxins and do not know when to stop growing.
As testosterone levels decline with age, you have a perfect storm then in the body for creating the condition of an enlarged prostate.
Why Grocare’s Natural Remedy For Prostate Health Is Different :
Grocare’s natural medicines act to purify the body as a whole. The cells, muscles, fat, urine, blood – all need to be kept as clean as possible so that disease does not form in the body.
A doctor or surgeon will attempt to remedy an enlarged prostate by:
1. Reducing the internal inflammation by clearing the urethra, thus clearing the swelling and pressure of the prostate from inside – this is the case of over 90% of people requiring surgery.
2. In cases where the inflammation is large, the surgeon reduces the size of the prostate from the outside, to reduce the pressure on the urethra
Notice that neither of these surgical methods address the problem of toxins in the body. The toxins are likely what are causing the swelling – but they are completely ignored by mainstream medicine.
Ayurvedic Treatment For Prostate Enlargement :
Fortunately, Grocare offers a natural way to solve the problem, without causing side-effects which are associated with many pharmaceutical medicines, or the expense and pain of a major surgery.
For the younger man suffering from symptoms, the prostate can become swollen due to a bacterial infection. If the infection continues for some time it becomes chronic. This is referred as Prostatitis and is often not cured fully, as the sub clinical infection is difficult to eliminate. Antibiotic’s are rarely effective in treating a ‘sub-clinical’ infections, yet they are often prescribed anyhow.
For the older man, prostate enlargement might be due to changes in the balance of sex hormones. Aging, along with the presence of other ailments like diabetes, or high blood pressure as well as a sedimentary lifestyle can speed up the process of prostate enlargement.
No matter which is the case, Grocare’s Ayurvedic treatment, Vinidia®, helps. Vinidia® helps to strengthen and rejuvenate the prostate gland as well as stimulate the kidneys.
This helps to minimize enlargement of the prostate while reducing the symptoms associated with this health concern.
The next set of natural medicines, GC® and Acidim®, work as powerful antioxidants to rid the body of impurities and balance the hormones. Acidim® helps to remove free radicals, helping to reverse the process of aging, and to repair damage to the body created by a poor lifestyle.
Of course, these three medicines, Vinidia®, GC®, and Acidim® work best when someone makes a concerted effort to sleep well, eat well, and get regular, moderate exercise. Eating at regular intervals, and urinating when the need arises is important as well. We like to work with the body’s natural healing wisdom at Grocare, instead of against it, and we know that you will want to also.
With these natural, non-surgical remedies to an enlarged prostate, you don’t have to just mask the symptoms. You can get to the root of the problem, and clean the body from the inside out – restoring its natural balance, and health.
