Ayurvedic Treatment for Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia
BPH is very common disease of old male persons and factor associated with the metabolism, including obesity, blood glucose, exercise and diet can contribute to this condition. This disease is age dependent and almost 40% people have been seen with this condition after the age of 40. Up to 70% to 80% can be seen with the same condition after the age of 80. The prostate gland increases in size as the age advances, making BPH, one of the most common age-related conditions in men. It creates pressure on the urethra causing obstructive urinary symptoms like increased frequency of urination, painful micturition, urinary urgency, excess urination at night and dribbling of urine, etc. The prostate gland starts out small and has two main phases of growth. It doubles in size during the teenage years, then continues to grow again after age 25 throughout the rest of a man’s life.
