A problem with frequent urination


Question : I AM a 65-year-old male who is suffering from hypertension. I had undergone prostate scrapping about two years ago. Recently, I experienced a frequent urination problem. Kindly advise me on herbal remedies that may be helpful for my condition.

Answer : MOST men above 45 have some degree of enlargement of the prostate gland. As they age, hormonal factors tend to cause the prostate to enlarg

Having adequate zinc in the body is vital for the prevention and treatment of prostate enlargement. This also prevents the conversion of the male hormone testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT), the chemical responsible for triggering prostate enlargement. Taking zinc daily has been shown to reduce the symptoms for most patients with an enlarged prostate. Zinc is also found in oysters, red meat, liver, as well as in unpolished grains and cereals.

Saw palmetto berries have long been a safe and successful treatment for prostate enlargement. The plant sterols found in the berries are believed to prevent the rapid growth of prostate cells by acting on the enzymes that convert testosterone to DHT and most men start to show improvement after six weeks. Pumpkin seeds too have been used in traditional medicine for treating prostate enlargement and normalising urination symptoms. Pumpkin seeds are rich in zinc and contain plant sterols that can prevent the rapid proliferation of prostate cells responsible for prostate enlargement.

A good balance of omega-6 and omega-3 essential fatty acids is required for prostate functions as well as in reducing high blood pressure. A supplement that offers 80 per cent evening primrose oil and 20 per cent fish oil is beneficial.

Eat less meat and animal fats as the free radicals generated are linked to various prostate problems including prostate cancer. But an increased intake of anti-oxidants and fibre-rich fruits and vegetables is desirable for promoting healing and neutralising free radicals. Frequent walking or swimming is good for prostate enlargement patients as it improves blood flow to all parts of the body. Abstain from alcohol.

Do check with your physician to see if there are any underlying problems that cause your frequent urination.
