In Sep 2011 I noticed that I had the urge to urinate much more often than usual even though my bladder was not full. This condition became progressively worse, and within a month I was getting up over 5 times a night to urinate.
My family doctor tested my PSA; and it had gone from 3.5 to 5.5, and so refered me to a urologist. The urologist said I had an enlarged prostate and performed a biopsy which did not detect any cancer. He recommended no treatment other than watchful waiting by monitoring my PSA; level every 6 months.
My enlarged prostate and consequential urge to urinate 10 or more times day and night was left untreated by the medical profession. So I did my own research and luckily found a solution to my problem.
I began taking a herbal supplement consisting of SAW-PALMETTO, PYGEUM and LYCOPENE (by Solgar), one capsule after meals twice daily. After 7 days my prostate had returned to normal size and all my symptoms vanished. No more frequent trips to the bathroom, and no more sleepless nights! I now take just 1 capsule daily as a preventive measure.
Update: over a year later I am free of any prostate problem, and still take my herbal supplement daily.
Hope this will prove useful.
Still completly free of any prostate and urination problems, and still continue to take 1 Solgar capsule per day consisting of saw-palmetto + pygeum + lycopene.
I am still in very good health and continue to take one prostate supplement capsule once a day. My PSA has risen slightly, and my urologist recommended another prostate biopsy. I have declined to do so since it is an unpleasant experience.
I had to change my prostate supplement because Pygeum (which is obtained from the bark of an endangered African tree) is no longer available. So for the last nine months, I take a capsule each of Puritan's Pride Prostene and Pumpkin-seed-oil once daily. I am happy to say that I am in excellent health. My prostate and all my male functions are completely normal.
