The Manly Gland
Living a long life can be a wonderful thing, especially if you are in good health.

But, if you are a man, a long life can increase the risk of prostate problems.

In fact, 50 percent of all men will experience an enlarged prostate, a condition known as benign prostatic hypertrophy or BPH, once they hit their 60th birthday.

Here’s why: as you prostate grows, it acts like a clamp on your urethra. And that can mean increasingly frequent bathroom trips.

In this episode, Dr. Jonny Bowden joins Dr. Jeff with common-sense tips on minimizing those trips to the men’s room and natural ways to help bring your prostate down to size.
