Let us make your prostate disease a thing of the past
Prostate enlargement, also called benign prostatic hypertrophy, is simply an increase in the size of the prostate gland, for which there is no known cause. Usually affecting men over fifty, symptoms gradually develop as the enlarging prostate presses on the urethra, which obstructs the flow of urine. Normally, suffers experience difficulty starting urination, and once started, the stream or flow is weak. Over-development of the bladder muscle (in order to force the urine through the obstructed urethra) can cause swelling in the lower abdomen. There may be incontinence due to overflow of small quantities of urine, or the bladder may become overactive, which will result in frequent urination. Severe abdominal pain and the ability to pass only a few drops of urine indicate acute urinary retention and require immediate treatment.
Chinese herbal therapy has been fairly successful in treating prostate enlargement, yet it is important to undergo a digital rectal examination to confirm the diagnosis since there has been some speculation concerning a relationship between this condition and prostate cancer.
Prostatitis is the inflammation of the prostate gland. It is usually caused by bacterial infection that has spread from the urethra. The infection may or may not be sexually transmitted. Presence of a urinary catheter increases the risk of prostatitis. Anyone with frequently recurring prostate infections would be well advised to investigate the cause.
Three Chinese formulas are noted for their ability to effectively treat these conditions (enlarged prostate and prostatitis)—Xiao Ji Yin Zi, Jie Jie Pills and Ba Zheng San Wan. Their use is preferable to the standard Western medical treatment of antibiotic drugs requiring long-term use which can be undesirable because of compromised immunity and with which there is a high rate of recurrence.
Click on the links below for more information on these three formulas. We do suggest you consider combining the use of the formulas for a more powerful effect. Most patients find success combining either: Ba Zheng San and Xiao Ji Yin Zi “or” Jie Jie Pills and Xiao Ji Yin Zi.
Long-term use is highly recommended.
