Prostrate Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia Hypertrophy. Homeopathic Treatment

Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH), or benign Prostatic Hypertrophy.-overview

Is your sleep perturbed due to frequent bathroom trips at night?

Do you feel that your bladder does not empty fully, or you have to exert while urinating due to a weak urine flow?

Even though Prostatis is a common condition for aged men, the frustration caused by it to the patients and clinicians are more.

These are the warning signs of an ongoing Prostate enlargement. Prostate is a small gland in the male reproductive system, positioned in front of the rectum and below the bladder. Typically, the Prostate two folds during the puberty phase of a man, and goes through a second phase of growth during old age, but in some men Prostate may grow all through their life.

Men produce Testosterone, a male hormone and small amounts of Estrogen, a female hormone. As age advances, the production of Testosterone reduces which leaves elevated levels of Estrogen causing enlargement of the Prostate, also known as benign Prostatic Hyperplasia. An enlarged Prostate compresses the Urethra, irritates the bladder, and stimulates frequent urination. These repeated contractions exhaust the bladder, thereby, extinguishing its capability to empty itself. Although symptoms of Prostate Enlargement are the same as Prostate Cancer, having a Prostate Enlargement does not increase the chances of getting Prostate Cancer.

It is common for the prostate gland to become enlarged as a man ages. Doctors call the condition benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), or benign prostatic hypertrophy.

Prostate will affect urine flow and sexual activity. Behind the prostate is the rectum. The Prostate Enlargement gland's primary function is to produce most of the fluids in semen that nourishes and transports sperm. The fluid is added to the semen at the time of ejaculation. The fluid released from the prostate is made up of alkaline phosphatase, citric acid, proteins, enzymes, fat and sugar to feed the sperm and also form a swimming media for sperm to reach the egg.

As the prostate enlarges, the layer of tissue surrounding it stops it from expanding, causing the gland to press against the urethra like a clamp on a garden hose. The bladder wall becomes thicker and irritable. The bladder begins to contract even when it contains small amounts of urine, causing more frequent urination. Eventually, the bladder weakens and loses the ability to empty itself. Urine remains in the bladder. The narrowing of the urethra and partial emptying of the bladder cause many of the problems associated with BPH.

Many people feel uncomfortable talking about the prostate, since the gland plays a role in both sex and urination. Still, prostate enlargement is as common a part of aging as gray hair. As life expectancy rises, so does the occurrence of BPH. In the United States alone, 375,000 hospital stays each year involve a diagnosis of BPH.

It is not clear whether certain groups face a greater risk of getting BPH. Studies done over the years suggest that BPH occurs more often among married men than single men and is more common in the United States and Europe than in other parts of the world. However, these findings have been debated, and no definite information on risk factors exists.

The Benign Enlargement of the Prostate (BPH) is a kinds of fall off pathological changes. The men will begin different degree prostate hyperplasia from 30 years old. They will appear symptom after 50 years old. It is cause by the sex hormone excrete descend, nerve excrete maladjustment, and the diet factor. The Benign Enlargement of the Prostate can cause the temporary sex excited. This is because the prostate hyperplasia make the prostate function foul-up, feed back to cause the testicle function stronger. The sex living will make an Enlarged Prostate more bad, because the sex make the prostate congest for long time, aggravate the illness.

Alarming sign of benign prostrate



 There are three main types of prostate problems

1) Prostatis (infections and inflammation)

2) Enlargement (benign prostatic hypertrophy)

3) Cancer

  1. Prostatis – Inflammation in the prostate is common and the easiest complaint to diagnose and treat. This form of prostatis leads to a range of very uncomfortable and painful symptoms, including chills, fever, pain in the lower back and genital area, urinary frequency and urgency often at night, burning or painful urination and body aches. There is also a clear infection of the urinary tract, with white blood cells and bacteria in the urine. Culture and sensitivity test will also guide for treatment. Early treatment is good to control and prevent recurrences.
  2. Enlargement- This can be due to Acute bacterial prostatitis – Acute bacterial prostatis may be considered as a type of urinary tract infection. The disease causing organisms are primarily gram-negative, coliform bacteria. The most commonly found organism are E-coli, Klebsiella, Proteus, Enterococci and Pseudomonas. Sometimes cultures grow Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus faecalis, and Chlamydia species. Patients usually have fever, chills, low back pain, perineal or ejaculatory pain, dysuria, urinary frequency, urgency, myalgias and obstruction. The duration of therapy will sometimes be long. Chronic bacterial prostatis – This form of prostatis is associated with an underlying defect in the prostate. Symptoms can be similar to those of acute bacterial prostatis, and there are also signs of infection. Patients have recurrent urinary tract infections with persistence of the same strain of pathogenic bacteria in prostatic fluid or urine. Symptoms can be quite varying, but many men experiences irritating voiding symptoms, possibly with pain in the back, testes, epididymis or penis, low-grade fever, arthralgias and myalgias
  3. Prostate cancer – Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer among men next to lung cancer. The peripheral (outer) zone of the prostate is the area most susceptible to developing cancer. BPH is an excessive growth of normal prostate cells. In prostate cancer, a tumour consisting of abnormal cells is the culprit behind the disease. At first the tumour is small, but a tumour may eventually grow so large that it infiltrates and occupies the entire prostate. Another difference is that a prostate with BPH will be fairly soft and pliable. A cancer tumour can be made up of very tightly packed cells. Here prostate gland is tender and warm, swollen, firm and irregular.

Enlarge prostrate types & complication



 The causative factor for prostate enlargement is unknown but predisposing factors are: 
1. Male hormones (androgens) influence the enlargement of the prostate. It is rare to see enlargement of the prostate in men whose male hormone levels are very low. Only a few men with enlarged prostate have significant symptoms or require treatment. 
2. The Prostate gland may get infected by many organisms, including the one that causes gonorrhea. Infections elsewhere in the body may also be carried to the prostate gland through the bloodstream. Sometimes the prostate may become inflamed simply by enlargement of the gland or by excessive sexual activity. 
3. Another important cause of prostate enlargement is overproduction of a hormone metabolite called DHT, which is the prime culprit in the development of BPH and possibly prostate cancer. The prostate enlargement is directly dependent on increased dihydrotestosterone (DHT) production, the principal androgen hormone in the prostate which increases as age advances. 
4. Zinc has long been associated with male sexual health. This is because zinc is an integral part of hormone structures and a major constituent of seminal fluid and is involved in the production of sperm. As age increases, deficiency leads to impotence and prostate enlargement because the prostate tissue grows to collect more zinc to maintain its health.





Prostate residual urine volume in bladder


Many symptoms of BPH stem from obstruction of the urethra and gradual loss of bladder function, which results in incomplete emptying of the bladder. The symptoms of BPH vary, but the most common ones involve changes or problems with urination, such as:

  •              Frequent urination especially at night.
  •              Incomplete emptying of bladder.
  •              Weak stream of urine with dribbling at the end of urination.
  •              Urgency to pass urine.
  •              Uncontrolled leakage of urine.
  •              Blood in urine.
  •              Burning and / or pain with urination.
  •              Urinary retention.
  •              Frequent Urinary Tract infections.
  •              Bladder stones.
  •              Erectile dysfunction.
  •              Fever with chills.
  •              Bladder or kidney damage.

The size of the prostate does not always determine how severe the obstruction or the symptoms will be. Some men with greatly enlarged glands have little obstruction and few symptoms while others, whose glands are less enlarged, have more blockage and greater problems.

Sometimes a man may not know he has any obstruction until he suddenly finds himself unable to urinate at all. This condition, called acute urinary retention, may be triggered by taking over-the-counter cold or allergy medicines. Such medicines contain a decongestant drug, known as a sympathomimetic. A potential side effect of this drug may be to prevent the bladder opening from relaxing and allowing urine to empty. When partial obstruction is present, urinary retention also can be brought on by alcohol, cold temperatures, or a long period of immobility. Acute urinary retention causes severe pain and discomfort. Catheterization may be necessary to drain urine from the bladder and obtain relief.

It is important to tell your doctor about urinary problems such as those described above. In 8 out of 10 cases, these symptoms suggest BPH, but they also can signal other, more serious conditions that require prompt treatment. These conditions, including prostate cancer, can be ruled out only by a doctor's exam.

Severe BPH can cause serious problems over time. Urine retention and strain on the bladder can lead to urinary tract infections, bladder or kidney damage, bladder stones, and incontinence. If the bladder is permanently damaged, treatment for BPH may be ineffective. When BPH is found in its earlier stages, there is a lower risk of developing such complications.



Diagnosis of Prostrate (prostratitis):


You may first notice symptoms of BPH yourself, or your doctor may find that your prostate is enlarged during a routine checkup. When BPH is suspected, you may be referred to a urologist, a doctor who specializes in problems of the urinary tract and the male reproductive system. Several tests help the doctor identify the problem and decide whether surgery is needed. The tests vary from patient to patient, but the following are the most common.

Digital Rectal Exam (DRE)

This exam is usually the first test done. The doctor inserts a gloved finger into the rectum and feels the part of the prostate next to the rectum. This exam gives the doctor a general idea of the size and condition of the gland.


Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) Blood Test

In order to rule out cancer as a cause of urinary symptoms, your doctor may recommend a PSA blood test. PSA, a protein produced by prostate cells, is frequently present at elevated levels in the blood of men who have prostate cancer. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved a PSA test for use in conjunction with a digital rectal exam to help detect prostate cancer in men age 50 or older and for monitoring prostate cancer patients after treatment. However, much remains unknown about the interpretation of PSA levels, the test's ability to discriminate cancer from benign prostate conditions, and the best course of action following a finding of elevated PSA.

Because many unanswered questions surround the issue of PSA screening, the relative magnitude of its potential risks and benefits is unknown. Both PSA and ultrasound tests enhance detection when added to DRE screening. But they are known to have relatively high false-positive rates, and they may identify a greater number of medically insignificant tumors. Thus, PSA screening might lead to treatment of unproven benefit that could result in morbidity (including impotence and incontinence) and mortality. It cannot be determined from earlier studies whether PSA screening will reduce prostate cancer mortality. Ongoing studies are addressing this issue.


Surgical options –

Surgery has more risk than the other treatments. But for any serious complication of BPH, surgery is the only choice. Surgery is recommended when complaints are out of control. There are three main types of surgery for BPH: Transurethral resection of the prostate Transurethral incision of the prostate Open prostatectomy A new line of treatments for BPH appear every year. Examples are laser surgery, microwave thermal therapy and new drugs. Side-effects of these surgeries are that bloody urine is likely for several days. Also, recurrence of blocks, urine incontinence and erection dysfunction is common. One other problem is retrograde ejaculation. Men with this problem may not be able to father children. But it does not affect the ability to get an erection or have sex. This is common with surgery and rare with alpha blocker drug treatment.


Self care measure for PROSTRATE

Eating a healthy diet and drinking enough fluids may be beneficial.

Avoiding substances which irritate the bladder (alcohol, caffeine, citrus, hot/spicy foods) may alleviate symptoms

Emptying the bladder frequently and completely may decrease urgency

Relaxation techniques such as yoga or pilates may help reduce pain

Good hygiene and hand washing to prevent contamination of the penis/urethra by bacteria from the rectal area. Wearing a condom during anal intercourse will help prevent infection

Warm baths may relieve pelvic pain

Some activities such as cycling may increase symptoms


Life Style alterations

             Drink plenty of fluids during the daytime to cleanse the bladder, restrict fluids after evening to avoid waking up at night.

             Prevent constipation, to avoid straining at your bowel movement.

             Avoid lifting heavy weights.

             Avoid caffeine and alcohol.

             Drinking Cranberry juice can help with any urinary tract infections.






Homoeopathic Treatment for Prostrate:

First of all, the patient should accept that they are ageing, i.e. in childhood they run for everything and in the adult stage they walk for everything and when aged, they walk slowly even for urgent matters. Likewise as they grow older, the passing of urine should also to be done in a very relaxed manner, i.e. if they are straining more they cannot expel even a drop since the muscles around the bladder get tightened and close the urethral orifice more tightly instead of relaxing them to pass urine. So, the first thing to be followed is go to the urinal

 1) Before the bladder gets filled up and

2) Go in a relaxed manner; wait for a minute or two for the bladder to empty the urine voluntarily, without any force. If the bladder empties voluntarily, there will not be any residual urine.
