Abstract:  Therapeutic approaches to benign prostatic hyperplasia are highly varied and focus principally on modifying the altered biochemical pathways. The British Journal of Urology, in 1996, reported that botanical-based therapies in Europe are more popular than synthetic equivalents. In countries such as Austria and Germany, botanical medicines account for 90% of all medications used to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia. In this article, the author, a naturopathic doctor affiliated with the National College of Naturopathic Medicine, discusses common symptoms, diagnosis (digital exam and prostate-specific antigen), etiology, prevention (diet), considerations for compounding with nutrients and botanicals (nutrients [amino acids, essential fatty acids, zinc] and botanicals) and clinical application of natural substances (oral applications and rectal suppository).

Related Keywords: benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), prostate, prostate digital exam, prostate-specific antigen, prostate cancer, dihydrotestosterone (DHT), glycine, alanine, glutamic acid, saw palmetto, cernilton, Pygeum, stinging nettles
