There is no specific food or diet which protects you from recurrence. But studies have shown that people who eat healthy and exercise regularly after completing cancer treatment live longer and also tolerate treatment better in case of recurrence. Don't eat junk, don't overeat, exercise daily, do yoga. All these things have a supporting role.

5 Best Homeopathic Medicines To Manage Prostate Problem!

5 Best Homeopathic Medicines To Manage 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. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a homeopath.

Have children before thirty years and breast feed them. Maintaining hygiene etc some preventive steps.

Now days everyone's life end up with some kind of cancers or tumors. I meant it for normal people who couldn't smoke/drink. Just normal living/life style people. Why every one end up like this? Or what is the fact or reason or cause to became everyone, like this kind of disease?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Dear sir, cancer is a disease which is related to both our lifestyle, environmental factors or genetic. There are things that we can control, but many things like cosmic radiation, environmental factors, increasing pollution, lots of chemicals in food as preservatives or to increase its growth etc are beyond individual control and needs whole society to take steps to prevent this. Genetic factors are beyond our control, only thing we can do is to identify faulty gene and go for preventing measures. Since the exact cause of cancer is not understood completely, it is advisable to go for regular health screening for early diagnosis and get it treated timely for potential cure.

Stay away from direct sunlight. Exposure to too much sunlight can be harmful to the skin. You probably already know that it can cause skin cancer, but did you know that it can exacerbate acne.

Prostate symptoms can be managed by medicines but if medical treatment is not reliving surgery is the only option. But cause of prostatomegaly should be evaluated first. Psa levels should be checked, clinical examination of prostate should be done. Ultrasound prostate should be done. If these findings indicate chances of cancer then proatate biopsy has to be done before deciding the treatment direction as treatment of cancer and non cacerous conditions differ significantly.

Dear lybrate-user, There is no specific reason for your fever. It has no relation with your thyroid cancer. May be some times high dose of Eltroxin may stimulate it. Simple symptomatic management for fever will cure you. Relax.

Should have positive mind & think like cancer is also one of the diseases & take treatment. Should take proper diet rich in vitamins, micronutrients, fibers (green leafy vegetables, fruits etc). Should continue normal daily routine with mild exercise like walking to stay fit.

MBBS, DNB (Surgical Oncology)

For stage 2 uterine cancer the treatment of choice is surgery and based on the final report further radiation maybe required. Whereas for cervical cancer if it is early stage surgery is required and in stage II B onwards chemoradiation is the treatment of choice.
