Gland Enlargement

Gland Enlargement

A common problem in old males is that of retarded urine flow. There is difficulty in starting urination. Sometimes one has to wait a long time. Often, urine keeps dribbling after urinating. These are indications of Prostate Gland Enlargement. Here we are going to deal with the best homeopathic medicines for prostate gland enlargement.

An old age problem that happens in almost all old males is the prostate gland enlargement. It is also known as Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy (BPH). One needs to differentiate this enlargement from the cancerous type.

In BPH, there is no cancer. It is just a benign enlargement. Benign means that there is no evidence of cancer. It does not mean that it will not cause any symptoms.

The first thing that should be said about the prostate is that it is one of the most mispronounced words in the entire English language. So many people pronounce it as “prostrate” which of course means “stretched out on the ground” – nothing to do with the prostate gland. Most men know very little about the prostate and a survey once showed that 89 per cent of men didn’t know where the prostate was located. Embarrassingly studies have also shown that women know more about the prostate and prostatic problems than men!

The homeopathic medicine Sabal serrulata is an excellent and specific treatment for BPH. When I first studied homeopathy a quarter of a century ago, Sabal had been used for many years for this condition. It was also used by herbalists who knew it by the name saw palmetto or serenoa repens. Native Americans have been using the berries of this plant for urinary tract problems for many centuries. It also once had a good reputation as an aphrodisiac but alas no more! The early American homeopaths of whom many were “eclectic” physicians had knowledge of the world of herbs and quickly included Sabal serrulata into the homeopathic materia medica, where clinical experience made it the most well-known specific homeopathic remedy for BPH
