How Ayurveda Helps To Treat Prostate Cancer?

The prostate is a small gland positioned around the urethra and is responsible for creating the fluid to be ejaculated that contains semen. Commonly described as the shape and size of a walnut, the prostate has many important functions within the male reproductive system. Reports of cancer of this organ have become very frequent. Ayurveda has very effective treatments that not only stop the spread of the cancer,, but can actually cause partial or full remission.

Some Ayurvedic treatments for Prostate cancer:

  1. Haritaki and Terminalia Chebula: When mixed with honey and ghee, this medication is known to be very effective in treating anemia. However, it is also very effective in fighting tumors and cancer cells and thus is both a supplement to the body as well as fighter of illnesses.
  2. Amalaki or Emblica Officinalis: One of the most used and go to remedies within Ayurveda is amalaki which is frequently used to cure digestive problems. It is also an antioxidant and quickly drains out free radicals from within the body. This helps in cancer treatment, immunity boosting and improving metabolism.
  3. Vibhitaki or Terminalia Belerica: This is an excellent medication, which is very beneficial in purifying blood and removing toxins from the body. It is very good in increasing red blood cell count, which is very important when the body is fighting any form of cancer. Thus it is effective in the case of prostate cancer as well.
  4. Guduchi or Giloy: This medication is very good to fight calcium deficiency and is very effective at fighting infections as well. This is necessary to ensure that the body is protected while it is fighting the cancerous cells.
  5. Curcumin or Curcuma Longa: This is one of the wonder drugs being touted around as the next big thing in fighting cancer. Curcumin is the primary chemical in turmeric and is known to be very effective in the prevention of growth and spread of cancer cells.
  6. Punarnava or Boerhavia Diffusa: This is a great medication, which helps improve blood flow to and from the kidneys and also helps in increasing the count of red blood cells. All these properties make this particular species of flowering plant an absolute master when it comes to preventing prostate cancer. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an ayurveda.

I am a 74 year man with diabetes since 25 years and it is under control by medicines and insulin injections. If I make long travels by car, I want to urgently use toilets on the way for passing stools. If I could not see a toilet I usually passes in my underwear and pants while in the car itself. It has become a regular habit now resulting in difficult situations. Kindly advise whether it is due to irritable bowel syndrome and what is the remedial measure I can follow before or in a journey. When the urge comes I cannot control it.

There are many potential causes of fecal incontinence, including: diarrhea (possibly due to an infection or ibs) impacted stool (due to severe constipation, often seen in people of your age group) inflammatory bowel disease (crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis) nerve damage (due to diabetes or spinal cord injury) more than one cause for fecal incontinence is a strong possibility. Alot of cases of bowel incontinence, occur without a clear cause. First things first is to figure out the cause, if at all possible. This is a process, no single simple test will be able to figure it out. You will need to see a gastroenterologist and discuss your entire medical history. During a physical examination, a the gi may check the strength of the anal sphincter muscle using a gloved finger inserted into the rectum. Some of the tests that may be needed for figuring this out are: stool testing endoscopy anorectal manometry. A pressure monitor is inserted into the anus and rectum. This allows measurement of the strength of the sphincter muscles. Endosonography. An ultrasound probe is inserted into the anus. This produces images that can help identify problems in the anal and rectal walls. Nerve tests. These tests measure the responsiveness of the nerves controlling the sphincter muscles. They can detect nerve damage that can cause bowel incontinence. Let me try and give you an overview of what kind of treatment options you have. Recommended treatments vary according to the cause of course. Often, more than one treatment method may be required to control symptoms. Diet changes may be helpful: eat 20 to 30 grams of fiber per day. This can make stool more bulky and easier to control. Avoid caffeine. This may help prevent diarrhea. Drink several glasses of water each day. This can prevent constipation. Medications. Try these medicines to reduce the number of bowel movements and the urge to move the bowels: imodium lomotil hyoscyamine methylcellulose can help make liquid stool more solid and easier to control. For people with a specific cause of diarrhea, such as inflammatory bowel syndrome, other medications may also help. Exercises. Begin a program of regularly contracting the muscles used to control urinary flow (kegel exercises). This builds strength in the pelvic muscles and may help reduce bowel incontinence. Bowel training. Schedule bowel movements at the same times each day. This can help prevent accidents in between. Surgery may be recommended for people whose bowel incontinence is not helped by noninvasive treatments. There are many different surgeries that can be done. But I don; t want to get into this unless we know its really necessary. I strongly suggest you look into instituting the dietary changes mentioned above, after that medication may be needed. But above all, you need to be in touch with a good gi. I hope this helps. Feel free to follow-up and I will do my best to talk you through all this.

Urinary Tract Infection - Causes And Symptoms!

Urinary Tract Infection - Causes And Symptoms!

Infection caused in the kidneys, ureters, bladder, urethra or prostate gland is known as urinary tract infection(UTI). According to doctors, sexually active women are generally more at risk of suffering from this condition. Females other than sexually active age group and men are otherwise immune for urinary tract infections. If they got UTI, they should be thoroughly investigated for its cause by a urologist. 

Some of the causes which contribute to the development of this infection are: 

  1. Females have short urethra: Due to the short length of the urethra, a lot of bacteria got entry into the urinary bladder from the vagina, during sexual intercourse. Therefore, it is wise for females to urinate after intercourse so that bacteria flush out in urine. If not, these bacteria will lead to UTI. 
  2. Prostatitis is very common in young males: Infection of the prostate gland is very common in young males. Semen is naturally produced. If a young male does not ejaculate regularly, this stocked up semen leads to prostatitis. That’s why regular ejaculation is very important for males. Therefore, Masturbation is healthy, not harmful. 
  3. Urination after ejaculation in males is harmful: If male urinates immediately after ejaculation, then some urine refluxes into the open mouth of prostate glands. Urinary chemicals cause prostatitis. Therefore, males should not void immediately after ejaculation. 
  4. Phimosis: In male children, if prepuce does not open properly, it may cause infection. 
  5. Unprotected sexual intercourse: Unprotected intercourse may transmit infections to the other partner if one partner has got the infection.

Other common reasons 

  1. Uncontrolled diabetes 
  2. Kidney, ureteric and bladder stones 
  3. Prostate Enlargements 
  4. Urethral stricture 
  5. Congenital disorders in children 

Some of the symptoms of urinary tract infection are: 

  1. A nagging urge to urinate: One of the most predominant symptoms of urinary tract infection is a persistent, nagging urge to urinate.
  2. There is a burning sensation when you urinate: If you feel a burning sensation while urinating, chances are extremely high that you are suffering from urinary tract infection. 
  3. Red colored urine: Sometimes your urine may contain a perceptible amount of blood in them. 
  4. Foul smelled urine: An internal infection in the urinary tract manifests itself in different ways. One of the chief symptoms of this infection is discharging foul smelling urine. 
  5. Pain in the pelvic area: Women who suffer from urinary tract infection experience excruciating pain near the pelvic area, sometimes extending to the pubic bone. 
  6. Fever with chills: Severe infection may lead to fever with chills and rigors. 
  7. Frequent urge for urination: Frequent urination may be a sign of infection.

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

Increase in urinary frequency may be due to diabetes mellitus, diabetes insipidus, urinary tract infections, bladder stones or mass etc. First if there is any burning sensation in micturition or lower abdominal pain, fever is present, then it might be due to uti and urine culture should be done followed by proper antibiotic therapy. Get an usg kubp done to exclude cystitis (bladder infection) or bladder stone. If there is no such symptoms present like burning in urine, fasting blood sugar and post prandial blood sugar should be checked to exclude diabetes. Serum sodium, 24hr urine volume and osmolality is checked for excluding diabetes insipidus. Also avoid sweetened drinks, alcohol and excess amount of coffe or tea intake. Water intake should be restricted to 3-4 litres per day. Then according to reports furthur treatment can be done.

My right side kidney there is stones. so, please tell how to get relief from pain?
What are the size of the stones? stones treatment depends on the types and size of stone, most kidney stones won't require invasive procedures. You may be able to pass a small stone by: drinking water. Drinking as much as 2 to 3 quarts (1.9 to 2.8 liters) a day may help flush out your urinary system. Unless doctor tells you otherwise, drink enough fluid mostly water to produce clear or nearly clear urine. Passing a small stone can cause some discomfort. To relieve mild pain, according to your medical history one may prescribe pain relievers.
