About BPH

Enlargement of the prostate is called benign prostatic hyperplasia is otherwise known as BPH.

It occurs when the cells of the prostate gland begin to multiply.  These additional cells cause your prostate gland to swell and squeeze the urethra to limit the flow of urine.

BPH is not the same as prostate cancer.  BPH is common in men 50 and older.  It can greatly affect the quality of life.

In the United States, BPH is more common and most likely due to the American (western diet), stress, smoking, lack of proper REM sleep, insufficient exercise and poor cardiovascular health, and to a lesser degree genetics which all contribute to proper hormonal balance and prostate health.

The risk factor of a family history of prostate problems, especially if a man's father or brother has experienced BPH, diabetes and heart disease due to the use of beta-blockers, and lifestyle choices such as obesity can increase the risk as well. It is postulated that the male sex hormones (or the imbalance of these hormones) may also be a huge factor as to the pathogenesis of BPH.

Men produce testosterone.  After the age of 30, approximately 1% of a man's testosterone level begins to decrease. As the amount of active testosterone decreases, the higher amount of estrogen increases which creates an imbalance in the male urogenital biome.  It is suggested that this imbalance promotes the increase of prostate cells which in turn makes the prostate grow larger.

It is hypothesized that this imbalance makes the male hormone DHT accumulate and increase in the prostate as the testosterone levels decrease with age.  It is thought that this build-up of DHT may encourage the prostate to grow. Research suggests that men who don't produce or who have low levels of DHT do not develop BPH.

A primary goal is to strive for and use natural means to bring healing to your body and prostate.  Of course, there is no magic bullet pill or capsule that will work instantly as it took many years in a life-time to develop BPH.  However, the good news is the body, the prostate, and the heart do strive to heal given the appropriate nutrients and positive lifestyle changes.

The genitourinary system is a strong yet delicate part of the male anatomy and is a part of your internal eco-system.  It includes both the reproductive organs and excretory organs.  It's comprised of the kidneys, ureters, urinary bladder, and the urethra.  The male reproductive system includes the penis, scrotum, testes, epididymis, vas deferens, prostate, and seminal vesicles.

The penis and the urethra are part of the urinary and reproductive systems.  The male genitourinary system has its own biome which is part of a larger and more complex internal eco-system. 

Almost all disease comes from an imbalance of the body's microbiome.  The microbiome is the habitat of trillions of microbes: bacteria, fungi, protozoa, and viruses that live on and inside the body.  Basically, the human microbiome is the collection of the trillions of microbes living in and on the human body.  The disease process begins when the body's microbiome goes out of its natural and optimal balance.  

Common signs and symptoms of BPH include:

  • Frequent or urgent need to urinate

  • Increased frequency of urination at night (nocturia)

  • Difficulty starting urination

  • Weak urine stream or a stream that stops and starts

  • Dribbling at the end of urination

  • Inability to completely empty the bladder

Over forty-million men are affected by BPH in the United States.

Serious problems may develop when the bladder is unable to empty properly.  Urinary tract infections are one of the most common complications of an enlarged prostate.

Other complications of BPH include blood in the urine, bladder stones, incontinence, and the inability to urinate. The complete and or the sudden lack of the ability to urinate is an emergency medical condition that needs to be treated right away.  Bladder and kidney damage can also be a result of BPH.
