Hi lybrate-user I appreciate you seeking help for your father. Well, for severe pain, he may apply a pain relieving gel, along with other analgesics as advised by his head & neck oncologist. Alternatively, he may also gargle with a warm solution of chamomile tea, lemon and honey, three times daily. He can also try warm saline gargling, with a pinch of fresh turmeric/ salt added to warm water. Additionally, he can apply a paste made of a mixture of 1 gm of fresh turmeric powder and 1 gm of fresh tulsi powder, 4 to 5 times daily on his tongue and also the inner linings (of cheek). Take care to not eat or drink anything for the next 15 minutes post applying the paste on the oral mucosa. Again, from a dietary standpoint, it is important that he keeps his diet and lifestyle streamlined, he may take liquid/ semi-solid foods presently for convenience. Freshly prepared tomato soup to which fresh herbs like garlic, turmeric, black pepper, ginger, coriander leaves and oregano has been added, helps. Do avoid excessively hot/ cold drinks and foods though. Post every meal, lightly brush with either neem tooth paste or a herbal toothpaste from Himalaya Herbals. Hope this helps. Do take care and I wish your father all the very best. Sincerely,

Dear lybrate-user, there could be less than 1 percent risk of getting cancer if you are genitically related to the cancer patient. In case of offspring where both parents were suffering from cancer, the risk is much higher.

Can Ayurveda Treat Cancer?

Can Ayurveda Treat Cancer?

The development of abnormal cells that can spread to other areas of the body is known as cancer. It has about 100 types and includes cancer of the skin, lung, prostate gland and so on. Compared to normal body cells that follow a proper path of cell division, growth, and termination, cancer cells don't die but continue to develop and divide.

Holistic treatment of cancer involves purification and strengthening of body's immune system.

Ayurvedic treatment of cancer comprises an all-around approach keeping in mind your temperament and body characteristics, the affected energies in the body as well as the tissues involved. More importantly, the treatment focuses not only on the malignant spot but your entire body system. This is because Ayurveda believes in restoring harmony to your entire being for the ailment to be treated effectively so as to prevent its recurrence.

The treatment plan involves the purification of the body and of the toxins that influence the cells to attack your body. Certain blood cleansing herbs are administered alongside the recommendation of a detoxifying diet. To stimulate blood flow in your body, herbs that improve blood circulation are prescribed by a practitioner. This renders an efficient removal of toxins, prevents stagnant blood from forming and assists in the healing process of your tissues. Since it's a debilitating disease, herbs and minerals that boost your immunity are also suggested.

What are the holistic methods of treating cancer according to Ayurveda?

The treatment methods for cancer include:

- Elimination of toxins from the body through Panchakarma (a therapy that involves five cleansing procedures)
- Abstinence from lifestyle and foods that lead to the imbalance of the tridosha namely, vata (air), pitta (heat) and kapha (water and earth forces)
- Restitution of the functions of your digestive system
- Rejuvenation through a special form of treatment called rasayanas
- Recommendations on Ayurvedic preparations that can be taken along with radiotherapy or chemotherapy
- Suggestions on Ayurvedic medications for minimizing the side effects of the various cancer therapies

In addition to these, treatment also involves suggesting ways to relax the mind. Yoga, meditation, and praanayam (an ancient practice involving ways to control your breath) are some of the ways that are recommended for bringing about deep personal healing for cancer patients.

Respected lybrate-user heena first of all don't worry as it is natural thing regarding nipple size shape. So far as projection in dress is concerned you definately have to use padded braziers & with that dresses with less transparency that's all dear.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help. I would advise to not itch or irritate the same for it may get infected, and worsen the issue. You can clean the same with warm water, and apply any antiseptic ointment containing aloe vera. Should there be any pain, you may apply an alternating heat and cold treatment for couple of minutes that may alleviate it. However, should it not heal still or you notice more of such pimples coming up or its color as being significantly different than the usual breast skin color or any kind of severe pain/ inflammation etc all, you should visit your OB/ GYN right away for a clinical evaluation and traction thereof. Simultaneously, keep your diet and lifestyle streamlined, and stay well hydrated. You can take tomato soup to which fresh herbs like garlic, turmeric, black pepper, ginger, coriander leaves and oregano has been added, once daily. Your doc shall be able to advise further on, in particular, once he/ she gets to clinically examine you in person. Hope this helps. Do take care, and all the very best. Sincerely

It will be very difficult for you to analyse a use abdomen report. Prostate 21.1 ml means the volume of the prostate size. It is a bit enlarged but nothing to worry about as your residual volume is post urination is only 20.4 ml. As far as the calculi in gall bladder, the size is not mentioned. But it can cause problem. Should get it operated of it is causing pain.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help. I would advise you to try the following natural steps that may help reduce the inflammation and possibly prevent a recurrence as well - (a) streamline your diet. Include more of leafy greens and fresh fruits including red grapes. Minimize intake of spicy, oily, fatty, and high calorie foods including fast foods. (b) stay hydrated well. Take at least 8 to 10 glasses of filtered water daily (c) avoid constipation at all costs. Exercise daily for 30 to 45 minutes. (d) take'sporlac' (probiotic) tablets once daily for the next 21 days. (e) take'haridra' (himalaya) capsules 250 mg, twice daily for next 1 month after food. (f) take 250 ml of fresh pineapple juice (unsweetened) daily. (g) do not squeeze the cyst for it may be painful and lead to infections/ inflammations. Nevertheless, you should consult an experienced dermatologist/ cosmetologist here and seek his/ her opinion on the way forward, as well. You may also decide to remove the bigger ones through surgery should you find them causing inconvenience. Now a days, laser surgery is known to minimize invasion and helps reduce the overall scar length to inconspicuously small, about a third of the cyst diameter. However, it does not guarantee a recurrence or permanent cure though. Do take care and all the very best. Sincerely.

Homeopathy in Prostate Problem

DHB
Homeopath, Sagar
Homeopathy in Prostate Problem

The prostate gland is a very important gland in the male reproductive system. It is responsible for producing around 30% of the fluid which comprises semen. While the statement that homeopathy cannot treat problems in the prostate such as prostate cancer is true, it is untrue that prostate gland enlargement cannot be treated by homeopathy.

Here are the most common homeopathic remedies for prostate gland enlargement and what are the medicines best suited for it:

  1. Baryta carb: Baryta carb is one of the best homeopathic remedies for prostate gland enlargement in the elderly. Common conditions which may indicate that Baryta carb is the best remedy for your prostate gland enlargement patient include degenerative diseases such as losing memory, cardiovascular problems and other problems besides losing memory in the cerebral system. 
  2. Digitalis: Digitalis is mostly used when the patient suffering from prostate gland enlargement also suffers from heart problems. Digitalis does make the pulse weak, slow or even intermittent, however it is worth note that oedema may also occur. 
  3. Staphysagria: Staphysagria is one of the best homeopathic medicines for various pains which occur in the urinary system in addition to prostate gland enlargement. Common pains which staphysagria cures include pain while urinating, burning sensation in the urethra, feeling like the bladder is not completely emptied as well as pain in the urethra when one is not urinating.
  4. Conium: Frequent urination is yet another symptom of prostate gland enlargement. This problem is caused by an injury to the area where the prostate glands are located. This injury hardens the glands.  The passage of urine will be extremely difficult with urine starting to pass and then stopping again. There is also dribbling of urine after completion of urinating.
  5. Sabal Serrulata: Sabal Serrulata is one of the most popular homeopathic medicines for prostate gland enlargement with many patients having consumed it reported great results. It works for most causes of prostate gland enlargement as well.

Even though homeopathy is supposed to have no side effect, it is still imperative that you consult your doctor about which ones to take.
