Enlarged prostate home remedies are the best form of treatment for an enlarged prostate. An enlarged prostate is a fairly common problem among men as they age. The prostate is part of the male reproductive system and is situated around the urethra, which is a urinary tract. As men age the prostate also grows and enlarges and this can result in pressure on the urethra. This constant pressure causes urinary and bladder problems.
There are a number of treatment options, depending on the severity of the symptoms, how disruptive or debilitating the condition is and on any other existing medical conditions. In some cases treatment is not required while in others lifestyle changes, medication, or surgery could be needed. In most cases self care tips and enlarged prostate natural remedies are enough to overcome the problem.

The first cause is hormonal. After about age 40 more of the 5-alpha-reductase enzyme is produced by men. This enzyme converts testosterone, which we all want to have more of as we age, to dihydrotesterone or DHT. As men age, DHT levels tend to raise because of this increased enzyme production. DHT causes the prostate to increase in size. Higher DHT levels are one of the major causes of enlarged prostates. However they are not the only cause. If they were, herbal formulas containing saw palmetto would work better than they do.
It seems that the majority of men suffering from enlarged prostates are not helped significantly by herbal formulas containing saw palmetto, pumpkin seeds and other herbs which block the formation of DHT and may inhibit its binding to cell receptors in the prostate. Most likely this is for two reasons. First is that these herbs don’t work as powerfully as their promoters would like us to believe. Secondly, they don’t deal with what may be an even more major cause of an enlarged prostate. Infections.
Our guess is that approximately 2/3 of all men suffering from an enlarged prostate have an infection in the prostate. This infection could be viral, bacterial, fungal or even mycoplasm. Infections tend to cause inflammation. An inflammation in the prostate enlarges it. And of course you may suffer from both an infection and increased DHT levels. Your doctor may be able to give you an antibiotic to help you with a bacterial prostate infection, but he has little to help with viral and mycoplasm infections.
For years this report has recommended unique products for improving the symptoms of an enlarged prostate. These products worked better than the usual saw palmetto and sterolin based herbal formulas.
Because they helped many people that were not helped by these usual types of herbal formulas. The first product was U-Fn, a u-fucoidan extract from brown algae that was expensive but better than the herbs. Unfortunately, many people still were not helped. So a few years later we heard about an oxygenating, detoxifying, pH balancing liquid supplement that fights infections. Zeo 3. Not only was it a bit more effective at helping people deal with a swollen prostate, but was less expensive too. However, it seemed to help just about 60% of the men using it. Good, but certainly not great. (Oxy E does something similar, and is the product to use if you want to add these actions to your enlarged prostate reduction protocol.)
So when we came across an even better product, or so we tested energetically, we started to feature it in this report. That was well over a year ago. It is a frequency enhanced water in a 2 ounce bottle that delivers specific energies to your body. It did indeed work spectacularly for dealing with an enlarged prostate. Turns out that most users would experience some improvement in their symptoms in 4 or 5 days. Those that didn’t obviously had a tougher case. Doubling the dosage for the first month however, produced improvement within the first month for a vast majority of those tougher cases. Very few bottles ever get returned. In fact, it has about a 93% success rate.

For most patients suffering from an enlarged prostate who do not have kidney damage or serious infection, the ultimate decision must be left to the patient. While there are absolute indications of intervention, most situations depend on how bothersome the symptoms are to the individual. All options need to be discussed and considered along with their advantages and disadvantages.
Sometimes men may take antibiotics for a long period of time without any true benefit. In fact, many of these conditions are not infections but simply muscle spasms involving the prostate and surrounding tissue. This is a condition called prostatosis or prostadynia. Treatment for this includes muscle relaxants and warm baths. Hytrin or Cardura, typically used for high blood pressure are also muscle relaxants and have been shown to be successful. These days, however, Flowmax or Uroxitrol are more often prescribed.
Over the past five years, a large amount of research has been done on the prostate gland and BPH. Doctors now know more and can provide more useful treatments. Always look into the latest treatment alternatives—there are constantly new treatments coming out.
A doctor may recommend treatment when:
• the man is unable to urinate
• there are recurrent urinary tract infections
• there is recurrent blood in the urine
• there are hemorrhoids and hernias
• there may be damage done to the kidneys or bladder
• there are bothersome symptoms like frequently interrupting sleep to go to the bathroom
• there is an annoying sensation of always having to urinate
• there is dripping of urine after stopping

If you just learned that you or a loved one has advanced prostate cancer, you may have many questions and concerns. By taking the time to research your condition, you’ve taken a good first step. Here are answers to the most common questions. After looking over these answers, click on other articles in this guide to find in-depth information about treatments, side effects, and other issues that affect you and your family.
What is advanced prostate cancer?
Prostate cancer is defined as ‘advanced’ when it spreads outside the prostate gland. It may spread to nearby tissues, lymph nodes, bones, or other parts of the body. It is also called metastatic prostate cancer.
Can advanced prostate cancer be cured?
Currently, no cure exists for advanced prostate cancer. Men can benefit, however, in several ways. Some treatments slow the growth of the cancer. Others reduce symptoms caused by the disease. Until recently, no therapy was offered to prolong life. However, the recently approved chemotherapy drug Taxotere, when taken with the steroid prednisone, has been proven to extend survival by several months. Taxotere is approved only for men with cancer that no longer responds to hormone therapy (called hormone refractory prostate cancer).
In addition, Provenge, a “”vaccine”" for the treatment of advanced prostate cancer, does appear to extend survival — by months for most patients, by years for some. Provenge isn’t your everyday vaccine. It’s an immune therapy created by harvesting immune cells from a patient, genetically engineering them to fight prostate cancer, and then infusing them back into the patient. It’s approved only for treatment of patients with few or no symptoms who have prostate cancer that has spread outside the prostate and no longer responds to hormone therapy.

There is nothing funny about a yeast infection. If left untreated it can cause many other health concerns. A lot of people don’t know that your brain is an area where you can develop a yeast infection. When the yeast infection migrates to your brain, the normal functions of your brain will be disturbed. One of the reasons you don’t hear too much about yeast infections and brain function is because it doesn’t happen often, so you shouldn’t be overly concerned. If your first thought when you suspect a yeast infection is to buy some OTC preparation from the chemist, hold off for a moment. The reason for that is if you are pregnant, for example, then you should see your doctor and receive a safe treatment for the condition.
Yeast is populated throughout the body, especially the vagina, and never becomes a problem until certain factors show up, and clothes can actually make a big difference. Candida prefers underwear that is ultra tight, made from material other than cotton and also underwear that is not clean. The general reasons have to do with keeping moisture and elevated temperatures at a state that is conducive to over-growth of Candida. If you have a history of wearing pantyhose and developing yeast infections, then that could be a clue right there. You have to look at the overall situation starting with the clothes you wear.
Have you had a lot of repeat yeast infections recently? To find the cause, you have to start paying attention to what you are doing and the types of clothes you wear. The best choice of fabric for underwear – and actually the most comfortable – is 100% cotton with no dyes or bleaches. It’s important to wear clothes that don’t hamper your body’s ability to breathe. Clothes that are too tight or made of synthetics harbor bacteria, moisture, and germs. The Candida yeast cells can continue to live on clothes and specifically in your underwear.
It goes without saying that good hygiene demands that you change your underwear daily, as well as practice other methods of personal hygiene. It’s imperative that you launder any clothes you wore while you had a yeast infection. Be especially prudent with underwear, shorts, trousers, or skirts. Bad sanitation can cause ED

The causes of yeast infection in ladies are often given variations. In some instances, the causes cannot be wholly defined since they are as a result of combination of various factors. It is evident that the bad look of the vagina when infected is irritating. During development, the symptoms can easily be defined. It is a good thing considering that women can then seek medical intervention in time. There are top 5 causes of yeast infection in women though not entirely. Knowing these causes is essential in aiding ladies to prevent themselves from being victims.
The biggest and most common cause of yeast growth is having sexual intercourse with a male who is infected. The unprotected engagement with a male is almost a sure way of being infected as well. The male penis of a person with the bacteria is clogged with numerous spores that are easily and directly transferred to the lady during intercourse.

Most over the counter medicines may help to get rid of a yeast infection, but often the results are not permanent. Plus the downfall of using these medicines is that your body could build up immunity to them and the yeast infection could return even worse than before. Alternative medicine helps by getting to the root of the problem and helping to boost your immune system, therefore not allowing yeast infection to return again.
Before you begin any type of treatment you should make sure that you are suffering from yeast infection and not possibly a urinary tract infection. The following are the most common symptoms: Vaginal discharge that may range from a white, creamy to cottage cheese type of discharge. Vaginal odor, painful sex or sexual dysfunction, muscle aches, irritability and burning or itching sensation. These symptoms vary from person to person and may also change over time.
To understand the causes of most yeast infections you should know what it is. More than 90% of the cases are due to an overgrowth of a fungus called Candida Albicans which naturally and quite harmlessly exists around the genitals. Candida thrives and will rapidly multiply in an environment that is high in sugars. The acidic balance of the vagina is kept in careful balance by your body, but that balance can be upset by a diet high in refined carbohydrates and sugars (including alcohol). The level of acid in and around the vagina can change during menstruation, during pregnancy, when taking birth control pills and steroids all of these can cause a yeast infection to develop.
There are other causes of a yeast infection which are the following:* Antibiotic treatments* Oral contraceptives* Hot weather or non-ventilating clothing, which increase moisture and warmth, fostering fungal growth* Stress* Suppressed immune system (including HIV)* Diabetes* Certain soaps, powders, detergents* Scented feminine products
The symptoms of a yeast infection severely reduce your ability to enjoy life as you should. You should not have to suffer, but the unfortunate truth is that prescription drugs don’t get to the root of the problem. They just mask over your symptoms. They may help you to cope with your immediate symptoms, but they don’t correct the long term cause of a yeast infection and you could possibly have a future recurrence.
Fortunately, there is an alternative remedy. There is a proven, natural cure to get rid of yeast infections by getting to the root cause of the infection, therefore eliminating the infection permanently. Finally, there is a way to get rid of a yeast infection for good.
Everything in the body is interrelated and the body has hormones, and when hormone levels are out of balance, yeast infections can be the result. Finding out why your hormones are going up or down is very important information that would be good to know. Yeast cells can be wiped out by the correct pH, which can be found in menstrual blood. If you are a woman who is on contraceptives, if you do not already have a yeast infection, you probably will soon. Also, some steroids will cause infections in some women because the basis for steroids is hormonal.
That is also why some steroid treatments may sometimes result in the formation of a yeast over-growth situation. If you can identify the cause of your yeast infection, you should not have any problems eliminating the symptoms and ridding yourself of this pesky condition. It’s really not that difficult. Sometimes you may have a situation where you have to take antibiotics. Ask your doctor if there is something you can do to lower your risk of getting a yeast infection while you take the antibiotics. If you have good eating habits and include a lot of whole, unprocessed foods in your diet, you will have a better chance of maintaining a healthy level of beneficial bacteria in your body.

During intercourse, there is transfer of spores to the vaginal area of the female. It is an efficient transfer especially with the aid of the mucous present. The rapid multiplication of the bacteria will only be realized by the victims once it reaches the visible point of irritation.
The area outside the vagina is very sensitive especially in reference to the introduction of new products that are numerous and widely available in the market today. The example of condoms that have spermicidal lubricants can be given as causers of irritation or upsetting of the area outside of the vagina. Towels and pant used by ladies are also possible enhancers of attack. The bacterium that is charged with the responsibility of curbing infections is reduced to nothing by such products.
Yeast infection has been referred to as an opportunistic one. This is because it occurs mainly when the body of the victims is at its lowest with regards to the immune system. The immune system can be low due to sickness, tiredness, and being under some medication. Many women will get the fungus while at their lowest levels of depression. It is advisable to ensure that one is taking a balanced diet and vitamins that will boost the immune system.

Similarly, Dr. Patricia Kane and Dr. Neil Speight believe they have developed an effective approach to chronic fatigue, lyme disease and neurological illnesses by detoxifying the body with intravenous glutathione and intravenous lipids. As they write in the Townsend newsletter, “GSH infusion by fast intravenous push has been a remarkable tool to unload the body burden of heavy metals and neurotoxins in both pediatric and adult patients.” In my own practice, I add glutathione as a “chaser” (at the very end of a detox drip, to help prevent any oxidation—since glutathione oxidizes easily when exposed to air or in the presence of certain minerals). I have given this to patients with multiple sclerosis, chronic fatigue, HIV, lyme disease, Guillain-Barre syndrome, hepatitis C, or just garden variety stress and fatigue.
One hepatitis C patient’s liver values returned to normal and she resumed a full teaching schedule at her university after a series of detox drips. Another patient with chronic lyme disease finds that weekly detox drips with glutathione improve her neurological symptoms of buzzing, burning and fatigue. My own nurse uses glutathione in fighting off colds. Because oral glutathione is not well absorbed, I have also begun to experiment with nebulized glutathione, which patients can take at home between detox drips.
According to a study in Alternative Medicine Review in 2000, nebulized glutathione has had remarkable success in emphysema and other lung disorders such as asthma and bronchitis. It appears that inhalation may have a systemic effect. Some patients are having even greater success with this combination. Michelle Alpert can be reached by emailing her at firstname.lastname@example.org or calling her office at 212-675-9343. Where to get glutathione: Preservative-free intravenous glutathione is available from Wellness Pharmacy in Alabama, (800) 880-5882. Wellness Pharmacy also offers glutathione in nasal sprays and oral formulations.
For those who do not have access to treatment with intravenous glutathione, whey protein has been found to increase cellular glutathione. Sublingual glutathione is available, and although there are no solid studies proving its effectiveness, it may be helpful. Nebulized glutathione can be used at home under your doctor’s guidance. Key Pharmacy (800-878-1322) can provide glutathione in this form, along with a nebulizer, both by prescription.
