5 natural allies to care for the prostate

When the prostate becomes enlarged or inflamed

The prostate, the male gland that surrounds the neck of the bladder and a portion of the urethra, is in charge of pouring the prostatic fluid in the urethra so that it mixes with the sperm when ejaculating and favor the displacement of the sperm.

When it increases in size it can cause variable degrees of urethral obstruction. Symptoms of a prostatic condition are a greater need to urinate-especially at night-the difficulty expelling or retaining urine, loss of volume or leakage.

In young or middle-aged men, the most common condition is inflammation from an infection, while in those over 50 years it is hypertrophy or exaggerated growth of the gland. The acute bacterial prostatitis usually due to microorganisms present in the urine (E. coli or Klebsiella, among others).

It appears spontaneously and, together with the above symptoms, can lead to fever, chills and pain. On the contrary, the chronic prostatitis It does not usually give symptoms and, only sometimes, perineal discomfort, lumbar pain or urinary obstruction are perceived.

The Prostatic hypertrophy affects the majority of men at the age of 50. When the gland enlarges, it compresses the urethra and causes difficulties in urination. It is a benign condition that is not related to prostate cancer, although sometimes they can manifest together.

The causes of hypertrophy are hormonal, but certain foods can delay or relieve it, while those that irritate the urinary tract aggravate it.

  • Do not drink alcohol.
  • Empty the bladder frequently during the day and, above all, before going to sleep.
  • Avoid sedentary lifestyle, constipation, flatulent foods, cold and humidity.
  • Lying down for a while horizontally after eating.
