I have been taking saw palmetto for 5 years now for my enlarged prostrate. Is there other alternative cures?
Q:I have also tried “Tadenan” a herbal supplement sold in drugstores for two months. However, I have not noticed any improvement in my passing of urine (it’s still weak in “caliber” and “driblling”). Do you have any suggestion aside from prescribing drugs for it?

Life Extension Foundation sell a good product with saw palmetto. 800-544-4440 The product you are getting may not be any good. Have your PSA checked before and after trying the product to see if it is working. If you get a membership you can buy cheaper and they also do blood tests and have advisers and doctors interpret the tests.
Well I do not have to tell you that saw palmetto does nothing, you have experienced it. None of those other herbs will either. I trust you have been checked and you know it is BPH and not prostate cancer. Next you need some real help, since your prostate is growing larger as you age. I would ask my doctor for Avodart, this blocks many forms of testosterone. I know you did not want to hear about drugs, but then I guess you really don’t want help.
