Enlarged Prostate Gland

Updated: Aug 26, 2023

There is a small gland surrounding the neck of urinary bladder in males, which is called prostate gland. In Latin, the meaning of Prostate is to protect or to Guard. Basically the function of the gland is to protect the genetic material i.e. sperms by providing alkaline media through its secretions. These prostatic secretions are slightly alkaline and ensure longer survival of the sperms in the tough vaginal acidic atmosphere.

The normal size of the prostate gland is about the size of a big walnut. The ideal weight is about 11 grams but in most men, as they grow older, the size starts to increase. This is called Hypertrophy of the transitional zonal cells of the prostate – Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy.

If the cellular growth is in the Peripheral zone, the growth is most likely to cause prostate cancer which is quiet dangerous than the Benign form which is relatively not so serious. It is quite possible to cure enlarged prostate using natural medicines and herbs. The nature offered us a treasure of herbal remedies and Ayurveda, which can be used to get rid of various health concerns.


The prostate gland secrets a fluid called "Prostatic secretions". These secretions are excellent to protect the spermatozoa from deadly, highly acidic media of the vagina. These secretions contain Prostate Specific Antigen ( PSA) and also ensure the longer survival of the genetic material inside the sperms. The sperms remain motile for a longer period in the presence of prostatic secretions.

The esophagus passes into the stomach through an opening in the diaphragm called the 'hiatus'. When the muscle tissue surrounding the hiatus is weak, the upper part of the stomach protrudes through the hiatus and into the chest cavity. This result in a condition called 'hiatal hernia'. Due to hiatal hernia, part of the stomach slides out of place and as a result, stomach contents repeatedly move back up into the esophagus. The food tube or the esophagus passes down through the chest, crosses the diaphragm and enters the abdomen through a hole in the diaphragm called the 'esophageal hiatus'. In individuals with hiatal hernias, the opening of the esophageal hiatus is larger than normal and a portion of the upper stomach slips up or passes through the hiatus and into the chest. This condition is called 'esophageal hiatus hernia' and further undergoes acid reflux which causes heartburn, chest pain and belching.

​Esophageal hiatus hernia�is far less common, but it is much more serious. Some people are not even aware that they have this type of disorder. Although these types of hernias are present in approximately 15% of the population, but the condition is dangerous and it may strangle the stomach and cut off the blood supply.​

Symptoms of esophageal hiatus hernia may include severe and radiating chest pain, difficulty in swallowing, stomach pain, indigestion, nausea and vomiting. Other prominent symptoms like acid reflux and persistent heartburn will probably require medical intervention through medications or surgery. Antacids neutralize stomach acid and provide heartburn relief. Special medications reduce acid production and also heal damaged tissue in the esophagus.​

Medications help to control most esophageal hiatus hernia symptoms, but sometimes it may require surgery. Surgery is usually reserved for emergency situations, including those where prescription drugs offer no relief from the symptoms.​

Lifestyle changes, home remedies and alternative therapies are other ways to treat symptoms. Esophageal hiatus hernia sufferers can alleviate some of their problems by eating smaller meals, avoiding alcohol and smoking.​

Several herbal remedies have been used in treating esophagus-related pain and soothing tissue irritation or inflammation in the esophagus. According to Ayurveda, the natural herbs have anti-inflammatory action. They help to heal and soothe damaged mucous membranes in the esophagus.

Ayurveda believes that human body positively responds to the natural healing which includes natural herbs. It might take some time to achieve full relief from esophageal hiatus hernia with the help of herbal medicines. But the results would last throughout the life, as treatment with natural remedies has long lasting effects. Herbal medicines don't make a person dependent and there is almost no side-effect in most of the herbal products.​Ayurvedic or herbal treatments are becoming popular with today's generation because they are totally natural. We recommend the following herbal and natural remedies for the treatment of esophageal hiatus hernia.​
