Does dry fasting help the prostate gland?

Asked a year ago

Would minimizing liquids and food intake help to kick start the body into autophagy?

Fasting or minimizing your intake of food and liquids has long been associated with a variety of health benefits. However, there's still insufficient evidence to suggest that it can help with prostate problems. To answer your question, yes, fasting would kick start autophagy but you'd need to fast for about 2-4 days for this to happen. If you're interested in any kind of fasting, it's advisable to discuss this with your doctor to ensure your health allows it.

Fasting is a good idea for your health overall, but dry fasting or fasting to shrink your enlarged prostate hasn't been proven to help. Ask your doctor for any real details but fasting has been well known to jump start various processes in the body and can help with this stuff, however, it would be better to ask a doctor for any real solutions.

While fasting has been known to have a range of health benefits, there's inconclusive evidence proving that it can help shrink an enlarged prostate. While minimizing your food or liquid intake can lead to autophagy, you'd have to do this for a long time for that to happen. There are better treatments with proven results for an enlarged prostate and it is better that you consult your doctor for advice on the same.
