Prostate pain treatment

Prostate problems are quite common among older men. Most men over the age of 50 have had some experience with prostate trouble. The gland starts to grow around the time of puberty, and continues growing, often causing problems by the age of 50 or 60. There are a number of home remedies that you can use to address prostate trouble, but prostate pain is usually an indication of an infection of some sort. If this is the case, a home remedy may not work. If you find no improvement from these methods, waste no time and visit your doctor immediately, before the infection worsens or spreads.

Before that, you can try pumpkin seeds - they are diuretic and contain lots of zinc. Pumpkin seeds can be eaten raw after shelling them. Fish, flaxseed, and soy are also very beneficial to the prostate gland. Fish and flaxseed are both high in Omega-3 fatty acids, and soy helps limit production of testosterone, too much of which can promote cancer of the prostate. In addition, cut down or avoid caffeine (colas, coffee, tea, and chocolate all contain caffeine) and alcohol, both of which make urination difficult. Spicy foods may also affect your prostate, so cut down or avoid them too. Finally, as mentioned before - if you see no improvement, promptly visit your doctor.
