Prostate Gland Enlargement - Homeopathic Remedies For It!

Prostate Gland Enlargement - Homeopathic Remedies For It!

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 a doctor about which ones to take.

It could be due to prostrate enlargement, urine infection, diabetes or taking more water at bed time. According to your age you can go for the related tests and then only line of treatment can be decided.

You are probably having BHP. It's better to get operated on as early as possible. Otherwise, the older you get ,more chances of complications will be there. Sooner the better. All the best.

Colon Cancer - What Signs You Must Watch Out For?

Colon Cancer - What Signs You Must Watch Out For?

Colon cancer is believed to be one of the common types of cancer affecting people. As the name suggests, here, the point of origin of the cancer is the colon or the large intestine. Though colon cancer can affect anyone, people with unhealthy lifestyle (sedentary) and habits (excess smoking and consumption of alcohol), obesity, certain medical conditions like diabetes, or exposed to radiations (radiation therapy) are at a greater risk of colon cancer. Colon cancer may also be hereditary.

Colon cancer usually proceeds through five stages, stage 0 (zero), stage I, II, III and IV.

  1. In stage 0, cancer remains in situ, (it remains confined within the innermost layer of the colon).
  2. In stage I, cancer slowly starts spreading to the other layers (second and third) of the inner walls of the colon.
  3. In stage II, cancer spreads further to the muscular walls of the colon (the lymph nodes, are, however, still not affected by this condition).
  4. In stage III, cancer spreads outside the colon, affecting one or more lymph nodes.
  5. Stage IV is more severe and metastatic. Here cancer has spread to and affected vital organs like the liver and the lungs.

Many of the symptoms do not appear at the initial stages. As a result, colon cancer mostly gets detected at a later (often metastatic) stage. Thus, a person should be alert. The initial symptoms, no matter how trivial, should be taken seriously. There is no harm in seeking medical help. It will only help you in the long run.

The following symptoms are often the initial or first signs of something as big as colon cancer.

  1. Unexplained poor appetite followed by sudden and rapid weight loss. Losing weight at an alarming rate without sweating it out needs thorough investigation. More than often, colon cancer interferes with the digestion process in a person. A person is not able to eat well. There is a feeling of being full (irrespective of how much you eat) all the time.
  2. Constipation, gas or (and) diarrhea. Often overlooked and mistaken for common bowel disorder, these are some of the initial symptoms of colon cancer. The symptoms may be an outcome of polyps (abnormal tissue growths that can take place in any organs. These polyps are mostly benign in nature) or malignant tumors in the colon. Seek medical help if the conditions persist for more than a week. It is better to be safe than to be sorry.
  3. A person feels exhausted, sleepy and weak all the time. The symptom may be an outcome of iron deficiency and anemia. Colon cancer can cause injury to the digestive tract. There may be bleeding followed by blood loss and hence the associated symptoms.
  4. Mild to severe abdominal pain. The abdomen also appears tender than usual (in the case of metastatic tumor).
  5. Stomach upset accompanied by pain, nausea, vomiting, cramps and at times, indigestion (an outcome of intestinal obstruction and inflammation).
  6. There may be blood while passing stool.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
