BPH Treatment: How Proscar, Avodart and Flomax
Work By Dr. James Meschino, DC, MS, ND
Hi I am Dr. James Meschino. Proscar, Avodart and Flomax in the treatment of BPH (Benign
Prostatic Hyperplasia). How do those drugs work? Well Proscar, Avodart and Flomax drugs
are used to treat enlarge prostate problems as you know also known as Benign Prostatic
Hyperplasia. Proscar and Avodart actually worked the same way. They blocked the conversion
of testosterone into a more dangerous type of testosterone called DHT Ddihydrotestosterone
Testosterone. What is DHT do? It builds up it causes the cells of the prostate to divide
at a faster rate and so when you have a greater and now you have a greater number of prostate
cells if you have the cells dividing too fast. So the prostate gland enlarges and produces
enlarged prostate problems. Why does this happen? While after age 40 the
enzyme that converts testosterone to DHT seems to be more aggressive that enzyme is known
as the 5-Alpha Reductase Enzyme. So those drugs actually are 5-Alpha Reductase Enzyme
inhibitors. They block the conversion into DHT by interrupting the effect of that enzyme.
The other things you know as a DHT can build up if you start to get but moreover weight
did you get older because fat cells will make more estrogens and estrogens slows down the
breakdown of the DHT. Hence that can raise the DHT levels as well and increase your risk
for prostate problems including prostate enlargement. So Proscar and Avodart inhibit the 5-Alpha
Reductase Enzyme, decreasing the build up of DHT and doing that they can help to shrink
the prostate down a little bit. The drug Flomax works differently. It works
on the nervous system to sort of relax a muscular wall around the neck of the bladder and the
prostate gland. So you can relax the muscular cord around the gland. There’s less tension
so you urine can flow more easily but the drugs like that tend to work on other aspects
of the vascular system as well so they can cut the sudden drop in blood pressure, you
get up out of the chair you feel dizzy, they can cause fatigue and weakness a lot of men
don’t like the feeling that they get on that and as other side effects. Even with the drugs
like Proscar there some side effects that men don’t like in certain situations. What
I want to point is that there are dietary and supplementation practices that a man shown
in peer reviewed clinical studies. They’ve been shown they can help prevent Benign Prostatic
Hyperplasia by interrupting the biological steps that lead to enlarge prostate.
Some of the supplements actually been proven to reverse Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia, reversed
enlarged prostates when you have mild to moderate cases and many of those active constituents
in the foods and in the supplementation. I have also blocked the important biological
processes that lead to prostate cancer. So that’s really important because the prostate
cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in men in this part of the world. So
those supplements and natural agents having fewer side effects and the drugs and they
have very important anti-cancer properties and they’ve been shown to reverse Prostate
Enlargement. So the problem is that many to know about this and medical doctors really
don’t study. A lot of nutrition in natural medicine and medical courses are in continuing
education courses and so they don’t emphasizes enough.
Even that the prostate cancer society the during the month of November when they have
their awareness campaign a stress getting a psa blood test and look for prostate cancer,
very good idea but they don’t stress enough to prevention strategies to prevent the development
of prostate cancer in prostate enlargement and that falls to lifestyle and dietary factors.
How do we know? All the scientific evidence published in the journal the National Cancer
Institute shows that up to 75% or maybe beyond that 75% up calf cases of prostate cancer
seem to be preventable if men which is used to right dietary and lifestyle majors. Because
this is not being taught by medical doctors in any significant way I have created in the
book that’s available right here. So you know the Natural Remedies in the treatment
of Benign Prostate Hyperplasia, Prostatitis and also the prevention of Prostate Cancer.
That’s in the e-book that every single man should get access. It’s available here,
download it right now and go through the book but it may actually save your life. Now remember
www.meschinohealth.com you’ll see my other research papers and videos I have created.
You’ll also see the live footage from my professional seminars, resources; other downloads that
all I have for you and that will help you people to live long healthy functional life.
On my research papers, ebooks and my teaching materials have all the scientific references
in them so you’ll know always that you getting sound scientific information from me, the
most evidence-based, the most up-to date information available on any health topic that you are
looking for. So you should really make www.meschinohealth.com an ongoing reliable resource for health and
