impotence, prostate conditions
Prostatic hypertrophy occurs due to an accumulation of testosterone by-products in the prostate. The causes are largely dietary and nutritional and chronic bacterial infections are also commonly involved, though rarely recognized. Half of all men experience prostate problems by age 50. Natural therapeutics such as zinc, essential fatty acids and saw palmetto berries have been shown to shrink the prostate in 90% of men if used for a full year.
Impotence is a term that covers a number of male dysfunctions, including the ability to maintain erection. Apart from psychological factors, weakness in the male sexual system is the result of a complex group of factors. Poor blood flow due to diabetes, side effects from various medications, hypertension, depression, allergy medications, overuse of alcohol, tobacco or recreational drugs. Hormone imbalance related to thyroid, adrenal, or testicular is often an underlying cause of prostate problems.
The remedy that matches the symptoms experienced by an individual should be taken with a frequency that matches the intensity or seriousness of the condition. Suggested potency is 6C three times daily for several weeks, or until improvement seems to be at a standstill. Then 12C potency can be taken twice a day, followed by 30C once a day. These are general guidelines. Seeking the advice of a licensed Homeopath is to your advantage.
