According to Men’s Health Network, more than 30 million men suffer from prostate problems, including cancer, enlarged prostate and prostatitis. Fortunately, natural treatments such as proper nutrition, saw palmetto, homeopathy and tonic herbs can protect prostate health.
Prostate dysfunction has been referred to as a nutritional disease. Replacing your meat intake with more fruits and vegetables is a simple natural treatment to protect prostate health.
Saw palmetto (made from a small palm tree) is a natural treatment that has been used for centuries throughout the world to treat urogenital problems. According to Prostate Magazine, it is as powerful as the drug Proscar in preventing prostate enlargement.
Homeopathic remedies such as staphysagria, thuja and merc are also effective in soothing irritation of the urogenital system, according to Materia Medica.
A traditional Chinese medicine practitioner can prescribe tonic herbs for prostate health. Ginseng is a type of tonic herb particularly helpful for prostate health.
While natural treatments for prostate health are useful, you should not neglect getting regular prostate-screening exams.
