11. Prostatic Enlargement
The prostate gland is a conical body about the size of a chestnut lying in front of the bladder. It surrounds the first inch of the urethra and secretes a thin, milky, alkaline fluid which aids in maintaining the viability of sperm cells. In older men a progressive enlargement of the prostate commonly obstructs the urethra and interferes with the passage of urine. At this point, surgical removal of a part of the prostate gland is often performed.
You should not be too hasty in submitting to such surgery. Where the obstruction is not due to fibrous tissue or cancerous growths, a fast will take care of the problem.
Regarding prostatic enlargement, Dr. V. Virginia Vetrano says: (Dr. Shelton's Hygienic Review, 6/76)
Dr. Vetrano points out that when the gland is mainly hyperplastic with more glandular and epithelial cells than fibrous tissue then the condition is remediable. At any rate, fasting should be tried before surgery is resorted to.
