At Crest Natural Health Centre, we are specialists in treating Prostate BPH without surgery, using alternative medicine unlike in Conventional Medicine.
Prostate enlargement medically known as Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia or Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy (BPH) a non-cancerous enlargement of the Prostate gland that may restrict the flow of urine from the bladder and if not attended too, in its early stage ends up by blocking the urine pass way medically we call urine retention or bladder outlet obstruction (BOO). This condition affects men as they age from 45 years and above. The normal prostate volume is 30 cm3, and beyond this you are regarded as a prostate patient.
Steps followed before treating a patient
Note: these investigations can be done at a reputable healthy facility of your choice.
After we have diagnosed the patient with Prostate BPH, a patient is put on medication and during this period we realize the reverse of the urinary symptoms.
It’s at this point inform our patient to re-do abdominal scan to see the reduction of prostate size and we make sure that the prostate volume is brought down below 30cm3 and with this normal prostate gland our patient is discharged.
An example of our patient X whom we sent to Kampala Imaging Centre (KIC) on 6/10/2017 reference number KICs S-454/2016 his prostate was enlarged measuring 150cm3. He was put on medication and the prognosis was good. He went back to same institution on 16/01/2017 for an abdominal ultra sound and prostate gland size had reduced to 137cm3 in Volume under reference number KIC B –S-158/2017 and as of now the prostate gland size normalized.
Another patient P was sent to Case Hospital (Kampala – Uganda) on 2/07/2015 his prostate was enlarged reading 85 ml, he was put on medication and he improved. He did another abdominal scan from the same hospital on 18/08/2015and his prostate gland had reduced to 51.05 ml and the last abdominal scan was done in the same institution on 4/11/2015 reading was 36.1ml.
We specialize in treating only the Non-Cancerous enlarged prostate BPH without surgery and if we find out that the patient is having a cancerous enlarged prostate we refer him to the Uganda Cancer Institute, Mulago Hospital for further management.
What is the Prostate?
The prostate is a walnut-shaped gland that is part of the male reproductive system. The main function of the prostate is to make a fluid that goes into semen. Prostate fluid is essential for man’s fertility. The gland surrounds the urethra at the neck of the bladder. The bladder neck is the area where the urethra joins the bladder. The bladder and urethra are parts of the lower urinary tract. The prostate has two or more lobes, or sections, enclosed by an outer layer of tissue, and it is in front of the rectum, just below the bladder. The urethra is the tube that carries urine from the bladder to the outside of the body. In men, the urethra also carries semen out through the penis.
Prostate enlargement medically known as Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia or Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy (BPH) a non-cancerous enlargement of the Prostate gland that may restrict the flow of urine from the bladder and if not attended too, in its early stage ends up by blocking the urine pass way medically we call urine retention or bladder outlet obstruction (BOO). This condition affects men as they age from 45 years and above and measuring beyond 30 cm3 in Volume
As the prostate enlarges, the gland presses against and pinches the urethra. The bladder wall becomes thicker what in medical terms we called cystitis (inflammation of the bladder). Eventually, the bladder may weaken and lose the ability to empty completely, leaving some urine in the bladder. As the process progresses, it results in many complications and eventually leads to a time when you want to pass urine and you find out that you push urine and it doesn’t come out completely. When the patient is rushed to a hospital the immediate remedy this senior citizen he gets from there is insertion of the urine catheter either urethra (urethra catheterization) or above the pubis (Supra Pubic Cauterization)
The size of the prostate does not always determine the severity of the blockage or symptoms. Some men with greatly enlarged prostates have little blockage and few symptoms, while other men who have minimally enlarged prostates have greater blockage and more symptoms. Less than half of all men with Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia have lower urinary tract symptoms. Basing on our experience at Crest Natural Health Centre, we have come across a patient with prostate volume 248 cm3 in Volume still passing urine, but another patient whose volume is 46cm3 in Volume has blocked at this point the issue of individualization is at play. Most men receive the early warning signals of BPH (symptoms) and they ignore them until urine is blocked as a result of prostate being enlarged. They are rushed to a nearby health facility to be catheterized.
Men with the following factors are more likely to develop benign prostatic hyperplasia:
What are the symptoms of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia?
Lower urinary tract symptoms suggestive of benign prostatic hyperplasia may include:
Urine that has an unusual color or smell
What are the complications of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia?
Most men with benign prostatic hyperplasia do not develop these complications. However, kidney damage in particular can be a serious health threat when it occurs.
