Enlarged Prostate

7 Ways an enlarged prostate affects urination

WHAT IS IT? According to the National Kidney and Urological Disease Information Clearinghouse, enlarged prostate is the most common prostate problem among men over age 50. Enlarged prostate interferes with the flow of urine through the urethra, causing it to narrow, forcing the bladder to contract more forcefully to expel urine.

Difficulty beginning urination - also known as urinary hestiancy - can affect both men and women, but it is most common in men with Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia, BPH. Applying heat to or massaging the lower abdomen may help relax the bladder and the muscles around it and aid urination.

Because their bladders have grown hypersensitive from forcing urine out of the bladder, many men who have an enlarged prostate will wake up frequently at night to urinate.

Pressure on the urethra may keep the bladder from emptying completely during urination. Combined with the oversensitivity the bladder can develop due to BPH, this can cause men to feel they need to urinate again, even if they've just done so.

It's not unusual for men to leak some urine after they finish urinating. In fact, statistics suggest that about 40 percent of men over age 40 experience this issue. This is often a symptom of BPH, though it can be caused by other issues, including pressure from a man's pants zipper pushing on the urethra and trapping urine during urination. A urologist can best diagnose the exact cause of this problem.

A urine flow that starts and stops - called urinary intermittency - is common in men who have an enlarged prostate. However, it can also be a symptom of a urinary tract infection or an injury to the urethra, so it's best to tell your doctor if you're experiencing this issue.

As mentioned previously, men with BPH have prostates that are large enough to put pressure on the urethra, making it more difficult for them to urinate. Because of this, it's not uncommon for men with enlarged prostates to find themselves needing to strain to produce urine.

One of the most common symptoms of BPH is increased urinary frequency. Increased urinary frequency is also a natural part of aging. As people age, the muscles of their bladder lose their tone and elasticity, reducing the bladder's capacity to hold urine by as much as 50 percent. --

My Two Sense
For Prostate Issues

By Hari S. Bird, Optician

Sat Nam. Here's a yogic prescription for men dealing with prostate issues. I recommend visiting each of these links in succession, then follow all instructions.

.) See Tuning In.

.) See Pranic Breathing.

.) See The Yogic Remedy.

.) See Cautionary Advisory.

.) See Other Remedies.


Sat Nam. I received this advisory from a healthcare practitioner for a friend of mine who was experiencing difficulty due to prostate issues.

He should look into a long-term treatment plan. He should consider making and using a tincture of Saw Palmetto, Pygeum and Nettle in a 2:2:1 ratio, using at least a 151 proof rum or Everclear alcohol.

Saw Palmetto, Pygeum and Nettle will cost $6.25, $7.50 and $3.20 per 1/2 pound respectively. And the alcohol, about $45, for 1-1/2 litres. This should yield 800 ml of tincture for less than $65. When he is healed sufficiently he should do Sat Kriya everyday, and add zinc, selenium and lycopene to his diet.

BTW: if he does not want to consume the alcohol he can put the tincture into a quarter cup of very hot water to evaporate it, then drink the mixture." --

I also received these advisories from men who had similar difficulties.

There is an excellent tincture mixture that may be very effective in dealing with prostate bleeding. It may be able to stop it in 4 hours after which he can address the underlying condition that is causing it. It is Shepard's Purse available from Taos Herb Company." --

One day I was soaking in the bathtub and suddenly felt a discharge coming out of my penis. It was not something I could stop, like when urinating. It was blood. I was quite shaken up by that. I got checked out immediately and was told it was a urinary tract infection (UTI). I took a short course of antibiotics, but about 3 months later, it happened again. This time, the doctors did an ultrasound and told me that my prostate was moderately enlarged. Also, I learned that for a UTI to reoccur in a male is somewhat rare, and that I actually had prostatitis, an infection of the prostate. I had to go on a very long course of antibiotics (as I recall 45 days) but it cleared up. I also started taking Saw Palmetto daily. Now I take a Costco 'Trunature Prostate Health Complex' capsule daily. Of course, seeing a good urologist, getting thoroughly checked out and then following whatever course of treatment a urologist might prescribe is important."

These are the three supplements I'm using of late. I take:

6 Gaia Herbs System Support Prostate Health Vegetarian Liquid Phyto-Caps, SKU #751063145640, per day.

6 Solaray Pygeum and Saw Palmetto Vegetarian Capsules, SKU #076280037685, per day.

4 Source Naturals Swedish Flower Pollen - 90 Tablets, SKU #021078012979, per day.

I experience ease of urination and the stream has been almost as strong as when I was a boy.

I get these from Vitacost.com.
There might be less expensive options online." -- See Yogic Remedy.
