PROSTATE & PILES
A man's prostate gland usually starts to enlarge after he reaches age 40 years or middle age. This
condition is called Benign Prostate Hyperplasia (BPH).
The prostate gland, which is normally about the size and shape of a walnut, wraps around the urethra
between the pubic bone and the rectum, below the bladder. In the early stage of prostate enlargement,
the bladder muscle forces urine through the narrowed urethra by contracting more powerfully. As a
result, the bladder muscle becomes thicker and more sensitive, causing a need to urinate more often.
The prostate gland secretes a fluid that is discharged with sperm. The gland itself surrounds the urethra,
which is the tube that carries urine from the bladder out through the tip of the penis. As the prostate
grows larger, it may press on the urethra. This narrowing of the urethra can cause some men with
prostate enlargement to have trouble with urination. Prostate enlargement may be the most common
health problem in men older than 60 years.
Function of Prostate Gland:
The main function of the prostate gland is to store and produce seminal fluid. Seminal fluid is a milky
liquid that nourishes sperm.
Causes of Enlarged Prostate:
As per Ayurveda Prostate enlargement is caused by an imbalance in Vata dosha, it’s important to avoid
Vata-aggravating foods. These include dry, cold, and light foods and bitter, astringent, and pungent
tastes. Instead, favor the Vata-pacifying diet, which includes sweet, sour, and salty tastes and warm,
The specific cause of most of these problems is unknown although they may be related to hormonal
changes brought on by aging. As a man ages an increased amount of hormones such as estrogen and
prolactin decrease the rate at which testosterone and the dihydrotestosterone (DHT) into which
testosterone is converted by 5-alpha-reductase are eliminated from the prostate. This excessive
accumulation of DHT is thought to be responsible for the problems of the prostate gland.
As the prostate grows larger and the urethra is squeezed more tightly, the bladder might not be able to
fully compensate for the problem and completely empty. Rarely, blockage from prostate enlargement
may cause repeated urinary tract infections and gradually result in bladder or kidney damage.
Symptoms of Enlarged Prostate:
Many men with an enlarged prostate have no symptoms. Common symptoms may include the
• Difficulty starting urination
• Dribbling of urine, especially after urinating
• A sense of not emptying the bladder
• Leaking of urine
• More frequent urination and a strong and sudden desire to urinate, especially at night

Self-Care at Home:

• Drink 8 glasses of water a day to help prevent bacteria from accumulating in the bladder.
• Drink cranberry juice 4 times a day to increase the acidity of the urine, especially if you feel a
urinary tract infection coming on.
