Cardiac diet: In looking at alternative therapies, nutraceutical experts had suggested the cardiac diet often leads to good urologic health as well. Conventional therapies include Alpha blockers which relax the stroma which is smooth muscle in the prostate gland land allow for easier urinary flow. Five Alpha reductase inhibitors may reduce the size of the gland or at least prevent further growth.
