I need a natural...

I need a natural solution to my problem. I am an astonishingly healthy, active male who will be 94 years old on the 28th of this month. My problem is urinary. I do drink my 8 glasses - 64 ounces, mainly water or juice or decaffeinated tea, daily. During the day I pee small amounts infrequently, At night, after I go to bed , I awake several times to pass what is often fifty/sixty ounces total. Incidentally , I do watch my diet, eating plenty of fruit and vegetable, virtually no bread and very little sugar. Everything natural, For the most part, I avoid consuming antibiotics. For y age, I am active. I went for my normal swim i n the ocean this morning. Now I would like a solution which balances my peeing activities - day and little at night, since that, of course, wakes me up.

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

I have been advised to take some medication. Was it Proscar? didn't work and I do not want to take un-natural drugs. I was told that I did not have an enlarged prostate. Incidentally, a few years back I got rid of my early stage prostate cancer with daily doses of turmeric and green tea, and cutting out dairy products, instead of having the prescribed radio-active seeds 'installed.'

Doctor's Assistant: Are you keeping a personal medical record while dealing with this?

Not really. I might be able to find some records of the above if I searched, but you have most of the relevant facts back there.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Nothing that is relevant, I should think. In the 1940's I spent time in an army hospital with malaria and sub-acute nephritis, perhaps brought on by anti-malarial drugs. Numerous broken bones.

Not exactly, but, please remember that whilst i frequently drink most of my liquid during day light hours, I pee very little in that time, and the rest starting about two hours after going to bed/sleep.

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
No.

I think you need to cut off fluids 3 hours before bed time

that gives your bladder time to fill and signal you to empty

no doubt the prostate isn't helping

you know a natural supplement called saw palmetto will help a lot

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I have taken saw palmetto

you need to keep taking it for it to work
