An enlarged prostate, or prostatitis, is a condition that causes the sufferer significant pain and discomfort, and can affect their quality of life. In addition to following the recommendations of a urologist and taking the appropriate medication, you can also do a few things that will help improve the prostatitis. At OneHowTo.com we'll give you a few home remedies for prostate enlargement.

Steps to follow:

Taking a hot bath is one of the best home remedies for prostate enlargement, and it's simple too. You just have to fill a bathtub with hot water (not so hot that it burns your skin) until it covers your stomach. Get in the bathtub and bathe in the water for up to 20 minutes.

The heat will help to relieve the pain, inflammation and difficulty passing urine. If you also add the medicinal plant known as horsetail to the water, the anti-inflammatory effects of the bath will be further enhanced. It is recommended to do this three times a day.


Horsetail is one of the best home remedies for treating an inflamed prostate owing to its purgative, detoxifying and anti-inflammatory properties, and it will help to relieve the discomfort caused by prostatitis, both internally and externally. It is recommended to drink an infusion made with this medicinal plant three times a day.

It is only advisable to drink the infusion every day for a maximum of a six weeks to prevent the horsetail from irritating the intestinal mucous. You can also check for the best tea for prostate health for more useful tips.
