  • the drugs don’t work
  • have also tried dietary supplements for BPH and they don’t work either

Symptoms of an enlarged prostate (BPH) include:

  • Urinary frequency (having to use the restroom often)
  • Excessive nighttime urination ( called nocturia in medicine)
  • Urinary urgency (When you have to go and can’t hold it)
  • Slow urinary stream (slow stream evident by how weak your urine hits the bottom or the toilet)

PLUS 1 is a new alternative therapy that does not involve pills or invasive surgery for men that are suffering from frequency urination, getting up at night frequently or those that have a slow urinary stream from an enlarged prostate.  If the patient qualifies the treatment involves an injection of a protein directly into the prostate.  This protein causes the prostate cells to break open and should improve there symptoms.
