Enlarged Prostate Treatment

Use herbal remedies in enlarged prostate treatment and prostatitis treatment to achieve a mild cure instead of surgery.

Small Flowered Willow Herb and Spiny Cocklebur are two effective herbal remedies for enlarged prostate treatment.


The prostate is part of a man's reproductive system. It is found in front of the rectum and just below the bladder, which stores urine.

The prostate wraps around a tube (the urethra) that carries urine from the bladder out through the tip of the penis.

The prostate's main role is to produce an essential portion of the seminal fluid that carries sperm.

This walnut-shaped gland starts to kick in near puberty and continues to grow and grow.
This enlargement doesn't usually cause symptoms until after age 40, and it usually doesn't cause problems until age 60 or later.

Prostate disorders
Most men over the age of 60 (and some in their 50s) develop some prostate problems symptoms. The three most common disorders are benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), a noncancerous enlargement of the prostate; prostatitis, an inflammatory infection; and prostate cancer. BPH is so common that some physicians consider it a normal consequence of aging in males.

Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) occurs in older men; the prostate often enlarges to the point where urination becomes difficult. Symptoms include needing to go to the toilet often (frequency) or taking a while to get started (hesitancy). If the prostate grows too large, it may constrict the urethra and impede the flow of urine, making urination difficult and painful and in extreme cases completely impossible.

Ignoring prostate problems, as some men are, isn't a smart idea. Left untreated, prostate problems can get progressively worse, become more painful, and can lead to dangerous complications, including bladder and kidney infections.

Enlarged Prostate Treatment - Herbal remedies

Small Flowered Willow Herb (Epilobium parviflorum). This pleasant herb and flower tea was highly recommended by Austrian herbalist, Maria Treben, for ailing men with prostate abnormalities.

It contains similar active constituents to those believed to make Green Tea so beneficial, it also contains the active constituents from the more famous Saw Palmetto, it has analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties, a raft of antioxidants and is considered to have a significant anti-microbial ability.

Saw Palmetto (Serenoa repens). The extract of the berries of this plant has been shown to work as well or better than prescription drugs in improving urinary flow rates and reducing the symptoms of BPH, such as urinary hesitancy and weak flow.

The extract works by altering certain hormone levels, thus reducing prostate enlargement. Palmetto extracts can be purchased at the health food store.

Spiny Cocklebur Tea (Xanthium spinosum) - infusion or decoction. It has beneficial effects on urinary tract infections, due to the decongestant, anti-inflammatory and disinfecting action.

It is recommended to combine it with a diuretic tea, for example marigold flowers (Flores Calendulae) or pine buds (Turiones Pini) and completely eliminate the alcohol, coffee, spices, pickles in vinegar, sour or sour fruit (apples, lemons, grapefruits).

Stinging nettle. Stinging nettle has been used in Europe for more than a decade, and studies have shown it to reduce prostate problems symptoms.

Nettle helps by inhibiting binding of testosterone-related proteins to their receptor sites on prostate cell membranes. Take stinging nettle in extract form (as capsules).

It has also anti-inflammatory action as Devil's Claw (Harpagophytum procumbens) thereby bringing down the inflammation encountered in the prostate adenoma.
