We recommend BioTorus LT100 for an enlarged prostate, especially for the anti-inflammatory and healing effect of the pulsed magnetic field, as well as the analgesic effect against pain. Using our device improves blood flow in the area. Application: Sit on the applicator and apply on the lower belly.
Symptoms of enlarged prostate:
frequent urination, problematic bowel movement, weak flow and dripping urine after urination
pain and tingling during urination
urinary stones in the bladder or chronic inflammation of the urethra in advanced stages
blockage causes backward inflow of urine into kidneys
Enlarged prostate, also called benign hypertrophy, affects one half of the men aged 50 and more. More than 80% of men aged over 80 suffer from this disorder. If the disorder has occurred in the family by adirect relative (father, brother), the risk of the condition occurring grows.
The prostate is a gland as big as a walnut and can be found under the bladder around the upper part of the urethra. It produces a milky liquid – part of the ejaculate. The primary cause of the enlargement is unknown but hormonal changes, chronic inflammation, as well as nutrition and metabolic factors are assumed to play a role.
An enlarged prostate presses on the urethra and becomes an obstruction by emptying the bladder. The urge to urination is more frequent, beginning of the urination is delayed and urination is more problematic. Urine flow weakens and urine still drips afterwards. Other symptoms include tingling and pain when the prostate presses on the urethra. Stagnating urine increases the risk of an infection and urinary stones. Backward flowing of the urine into kidneys can damage this organ considerably.
What to do
Urinate immediately after the first feeling of pressure. Avoid sexual stimulation without ejaculation, which increases pressure on the urethra and bladder. This can make problems worse and risk of infection increases.
Men should undergo a prostate exam after the age of 40:
The prostate is removed during a surgery in case of urine retention (incomplete emptying of the bladder) and other chronic problems. The most common surgery is so called TURP (transurethral resection of the prostate), when an optical device (cystoscopy) is inserted into the bladder and parts of the prostate are removed with a thin electric scalpel with a wire loop.
The surgery carries the risk of damaging the nerves, and can even lead to impotence. About 60% of patients experience a retrograde ejaculation after this surgery, this means that sperms don´t get into the penis but they get into the bladder. The feeling of ejaculation remains the same but problems with fertilization occur.
