After a diagnosis of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), there are many treatment options. In the case of mild symptoms, doctors may recommend addressing the disease through lifestyle changes and regular examinations. The National Institute of Health recommends “reducing intake of liquids, particularly before going out in public or before periods of sleep, [and] avoiding or reducing intake of caffeinated beverages and alcohol.” Avoiding the use of certain medications such as decongestants, antihistamines, antidepressants, and diuretics, as well as training the bladder to hold more urine for longer periods of time, exercising pelvic floor muscles and preventing or treating constipation are also thought to help reduce the BPH symptoms.

    Our lifestyle, habits and alimentation have an important role in our health, the prostate is not an exception, I try to avoid eating red meat, sugars, junk foods and processed foods since my urologist warned me about the consequences that those foods have for my prostate, I changed my alimentation and started taking a supplement named alpharise for my prostate, It was the solution to all my prostate problems
