The prostate gland is a small chestnut shaped gland that lies beneath the bladder and surrounds the initial part of the urethra. It is a secondary sex organ that secretes an alkaline fluid. This fluid forms the bulk of the seminal fluid and helps in sperm mobility. However, prostate problems like inflammation, infection or enlargement are quite common.
Doctors explain that owing to the intricate anatomy of the male reproductive organ, the prescribed medicine may not always work efficiently to cure prostate problems. Yoga experts guarantee that by following certain Yoga postures you can eliminate such problems because the treatment is completely internal and needs no external assistance.
