The prostate is a small gland, but leaving aside its dimensions, it is an extremely important part of the male reproductive system. It is located below the urinary gland, wrapped around the urethra, with the main function of secreting prostatic fluid.
After the male has exceeded 50 years old, he may have to face some health problems. The most common are:
- Acute bacterial prostatitis – Caused by a bacterial infection, this condition will cause the patient to experience fever, chills and painful urination.
- Benign prostatic hyperplasia – Basically, the prostate gets bigger in time and the frequent need to urinate at night or the difficulty of completing this process appears.
- Chronic bacterial prostatitis – This implies an often recurrence of the infection, which can only be handled by administrating medication on long periods of time.
- Chronic pelvic syndrome – The condition will cause pain in the lower back and in the pelvic region. Other symptoms could include pain in the ejaculation process and a frequent need to urinate, even though only a small amount will be released.
How can all these problems be treated? A change in the lifestyle, medication and surgery are the main tools in handling them. However, there appears to be another solution for these problems, one that nature has to offer: the herb named epilobium parviflorum. It is a small pink flower that grows in Central and Eastern Europe, and has a proven efficiency in what concerns the common problems of prostate and even cancer.
