As men age, there are problems that are inherent and will need to be managed - with chemicals, or with natural supplemtns. A healthy prostate is a major concern for men. I have provided consultations for men who have taken prescription medication for years, but have not experienced any improvement in their health, men who have just given up on finding any relief of their chronic symptoms, and men who have been seeking alternatives to the prescriptions that have side effects but have seen only a mild improvement to their health. The most common concern is an enlarged prostate, or benign prostate hyperplasia, BPH. According to the National Kidnay and Urological Disease Information Clearinghouse, the most common prostate problem for men over 50 is enlarged prostate. By age 60, over one-half of men have BPH; by age 85, the number climbs to 90%, according to the American Urological Association (AUA).
The prostate is a walnut-sized gland located between the bladder and the penis. The urethra runs through the center of the prostate, from the bladder to the penis, letting urine flow out of the body. The prostate secrets fluid that nourishes and protects sperm. The prostate begins to enlarge, sometimes as early as the forties for some men, causing problems like difficulty starting the urine flow, a weak or slow urinary stream, incomplete emptying of the bladder, frequent urination, urgency to urinate, straining to urinate, urinating frequently at night, a urinary stream that starts and stops, dribbling of the urine and having to urinate again shortly after utrinating. Many have experienced relief with ReAssure SP.
When the bladder does not empty completely, a urinary tract infection may result. Other serious problems can also develop over time, including bladder stones, blood in the urine, and acute urinary retention (an inability to urinate). A sudden and complete inability to urinate is a medical emergency; you should see your doctor immediately. In rare cases, bladder and/or kidney damage can develop from BPH.
A dietary supplement that has provided relief with no side effects is ReAssure SP, from the AIM family of products.
