Growth of the prostate gland in men, which occurs with natural aging, is called benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). An enlarged prostate gland affects nearly 20% of men at the age of 40yrs, 70% at the age of 60 and 90% by the age of 80yrs. Although prostate enlargement is a normal process of aging, sometimes the growth is rapid and may need medical intervention. An accurate diagnosis of BPH is required before starting any treatment. The Ayurvedic name for the prostrate is Sheela which means a small stone used to sharpen swords, a hard gland present below the umbilical. When the gland is affected by excess vata, it gives rise to a condition called vathaashteela. These formulations are used for treating an enlarged prostate. Ayurvedic herbal medicines used to treat this condition can be used long-term, even in the elderly population, without risk of serious or adverse side effects. Simple diet and lifestyle changes can also support long-term health.
