Natural Medicine for the Prostate

Posted , 7 users are following.

Good afternoon all.  I want to wish you all a ** Happy Father's Day **  Was with my 2 sons this morning.  My daughter-in-law made breakfast for us all and now they had to work I'm just going rest at home.  I know we talk a lot about different procedures and what would be best.  So I said let's get off the procedure for now and I look up Natural Medicine for the Prostate.  There are about 10 that I have come across.  I was just wondering if any of you guys have tried any of them.  There are only a few that give you some good information and they have had trails on them. Not as much as the procedures but I guess there not much money in them.  The first one is Pygeum ( African Plum Extract )  It can be used to treat BPH and Prostate cancer.  It can help with inflammation,  pain, kidney disease.  And a few others.  It also said to increase sexual desire..  Number 2 is Cernilton ( Rye Grass Pollen )  This one was the only one that said that it reduce the over all size of the prostate.  Last is Lycopene.  This is in many of the red vegetables that you can get.  Eating these thing will help with your prostate and also will help with heart disease and also prostate cancer.  There are other thing out that but I have never heard of the first 2 we have talk about other's.  Just wondering if these things would work and if they would help men not have as many surgery.  Well one more day going back to my daughter's to watch the kids while they go on vacation.  I will have fun with them.  Well I guess only god knows.  I wish you all good health and a long life  Ken

    Hi Ken,

    I have tried all of these. No success in improving urination or shrinking prostate. But I did find that the saw palmetto and pygeum helped to keep my PSA in check, so am continuing to take those.

    Best wishes,

    Fred

      Yes that would be good.  Just got done reading a article of a trail of 200 men.  It did work for them and they saw improvement.  That is good to know.  Ken

      Just read another post on it.  The trail was done on 200 men half were given Beta Sitosterol.  They had good results.  Urine function was up 29 % and the volume of the prostate was down 34 %.  Which is great but I read in another article that it will decrease your sex drive and you will have a problem getting a erection?????  Ken   How is your friend doing  I would like to know

    I think all of these things “ may” help and can’t do you any harm . I don’t think there is any real evidence to support any of them but they have to be worth a go ? As long as they are in addition and not a replacement to medical advice ?

      Good morning.  I think if something would help you natural in a pill  I think it is worth a try.  But we have to see what is the problem. We would have to go to the doctor.  This would give us another option and not be rushed into a surgery that we don't want or need at that time.        The pill and watching what you eat will buy you a few years.   My urologist gave me a 8 page diet that you can have or can't have and things you must stay away.  It is for overall heath and the health of your prostate.  We do what it best for us at the time  Ken
