Tips For Coping With BPHNow Available in Quebec and Eastern Canada

Nearly all men experience prostate growth, with the majority developing Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) as they age. The symptoms of BPH can be reduced through treatment, medication, surgery, and therapies. There are also various ways the symptoms of BPH can be lessened daily.

What Is BPH

The prostate gland is enlarged in benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). BPH becomes common as men get older. The prostate is a tiny gland that is initially the size of a walnut. The gland enlarges as males become older.

Other than the change in size, almost 50% of men with the illness show no symptoms. Others may experience urinary and sexual disorders, such as obstructed urine flow, which can lead to bladder, urinary tract, or kidney problems.

Your prostate covers a portion of the urethra, the tube that drains urine and sperm from your penis. When you have BPH, your prostate becomes bigger than usual, compressing the urethra. This might cause your urine stream to be weak, causing you to get up frequently at night to use the restroom. It may also cause other uncomfortable urinary symptoms. Your prostate is bigger than usual when you have BPH. The urethra might be squeezed by the big prostate.

BPH is a common health concern with several treatments ranging from lifestyle modifications to medicine to surgery. Your doctor can advise you on the best course of action based on your age, health, and how the problem affects you.

Daily BPH Treatment Tips

You can reduce your symptoms of BPH using these easy daily tips.

Exercise your bladder muscles

Exercising your bladder muscles can help control symptoms like dribbling, leaking and feeling a sense of urgency to urinate. By strengthening the bladder muscles, you can help control the latter. Kegel exercises are effective for strengthening these muscles: contract the muscles that you use to keep from urinating and squeeze tightly for 10 seconds. Then relax the muscles and repeat about 10 times. Doing these exercises 3 to 5 times every day can help improve bladder control.

Reduce your daily stress

Some men who are nervous and tense urinate more frequently. Reduce stress by exercising regularly and practicing relaxation techniques such as meditation, yoga, and breathing techniques.

Follow a Prostate friendly diet

Prostate-friendly diets consist of eating lots of fruits, vegetables, soy products, and green tea. Furthermore, consuming lots of omega-3 fatty acids can help alleviate the symptoms, while unhealthy saturated fats and trans fats should be reduced. A popular herbal product for BPH is saw palmetto, which is often used in the treatment of symptoms related to benign prostatic hyperplasia. Studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of saw palmetto similar to that of certain medications, whilst being less expensive and taxing on the body.

Rezum For BPH Treatment

Rezm water vapour therapy is a new, safe, and effective BPH treatment that can provide long-term relief without the dangers and inconvenience of surgery.

The therapy is a minimally invasive treatment for an enlarged prostate that uses controlled doses of hot steam to directly ablate and reduce portions of the swollen prostate that are causing obstruction of the urethra.

Rezūm has undergone rigorous studies and is recommended by the Canadian Urological Association as a minimally invasive BPH symptom reduction method for men interested in preserving erectile and ejaculatory function. It was also approved by the US FDA in 2015 for the treatment of the enlarged prostate.

Rezum can provide effective relief of the symptoms associated with BPH for five years.
