When you are diagnosed with an Enlarged Prostate or any other prostate trouble, it is wise to know more about the crucial functions of your prostate.
On the web there is much information about medical and natural treatments to improve your prostate health, but not so much on the functionality of the prostate gland. In my opinion, once you understand the functions of your prostate, it will be easier for you to improve your prostate health.
There are multiple functions performed by your prostate gland, and your GP or Urologist would only be able to name half of them out the top of their head. The prostate is a complex gland that’s for sure. The prostate gland functions as a mix-master, a pump, a filter, it decides when to release secretions, when to stimulate/support an erection, it radiates hormones, and it is also the male G-spot.
In the holistic health approach, The prostate is known to be the storage center of many emotions related to survival and relating. In specific, the main function of the prostate is to produce and store seminal fluids. It contains both nerves and muscles and is an essential part of the male reproductive system. The prostate influences your urine flow, it assists in triggering erections, and it makes you ejaculate. During the ejaculation it functions as a pump that releases the semen (from the testicles) together with the seminal fluids (from the prostate gland) with pressure. The seminal fluids produced in the prostate is about one third of the ejaculation ‘load’ and it protects the semen, so the sperm has a higher chance of success of survival.
The prostate gland also has a direct influence on the urine flow. It helps regulate the bladder from leaking urine. The prostate surrounds the upper part of the urethra, sitting against the bladder. When the prostate is not functioning well, it can influence your overall health, your sexual function and your daily urination.
I recommend you to read up about the prostate gland function, and decide to improve your prostate health with natural supplements and activities. One of these options to improve your prostate function is therapeutic prostate massage. An other good way is changing your diet and exercising more, as we all sit too long and move too little.
