Lybrate-user ji. Prostate problems are frequent at your age. Please get investigated in detail for your urinary complaints. If you suffer from benign hypertrophy of prostate, which is the commonest cause then there are medications with which you can delay the operations. But the effect is temporary to bring relief. Surgical removal of prostate is the only curative solution to bhp. In case there are other causes please visit a urologist/ urosurgeon.

Breast Cancer - Can Ayurveda Help You Treat it?

Breast Cancer - Can Ayurveda Help You Treat it?

If you are suffering from breast cancer, it is recommended that you undertake Ayurvedic measures for an effective and natural treatment. Breast cancer is a form of cancer that occurs in the cells of your breasts. The breast cells undergo abnormal growth and go out of control. This form of cancer is likely to occur in both women and men, although it is most common in women. A lot of breast cancer cases start from the ducts or lobes, while others start from the cellular lining of your milk ducts.

Ayurvedic view
According to the principles of Ayurveda, your body is based on the tridoshas, which include vata, pitta, and kapha.

  1. An imbalance in these doshas can lead to diseases and disruption in your health. Cancer occurs when an imbalance of all the three doshas is experienced.
  2. An improper diet and lifestyle account for being the primary reason for this imbalance in doshas, leading to breast cancer.
  3. Your digestive fire is also affected, which leads to the accumulation of toxins, thereby blocking all the channels of your body.
  4. All these factors are collectively responsible for the development of breast cancer.

Ayurvedic treatment

  1. Ayurvedic treatment for breast cancer is very effective because of its natural approach.
  2. Without the use of any chemicals and radiation, you get efficient management by using Ayurvedic remedies for breast cancer.
  3. Your body functioning is enhanced without the concern of any negative effect on your health.
  4. Several Ayurvedic herbs are used for breast cancer treatment. These herbs help in controlling the abnormal growth of breast cells, and in the later stages of breast cancer, these also help in reducing pain.

The herbs play an important role in preventing the condition from spreading to other organs.

Ashwagandha

  • This powerful Ayurvedic herb contains natural rejuvenating properties for your body.
  • It also helps in eliminating stress, weakness and fatigue, which are associated with breast cancer.

Curcuma

  • This effective Ayurvedic herb contains several medicinal properties.
  • It is an antioxidant and helps in reducing free radicals from your body. This is beneficial for an improved health and immunity.
  • The herb is capable of dealing with toxins and infections, and is super effective in treating malignant cancers.

Kanhnaar Guggul

  • This is an Ayurvedic product, which is obtained by mixing several herbs such as amalaki, haritaki, ginger, kachnar bark and a lot more.
  • This is effective in maintaining healthy tissues and cells. It also stops the abnormal growth of cancerous cells.

It is important for you to visit a licensed and experienced Ayurvedic practitioner for getting the best Ayurvedic remedies for breast cancer treatment. This will ensure that you get the most effective remedies, based on your condition.

What are symptoms of breast cancer and how can we detect it in early stages and get it cured?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
breast cancer most often present as painless lump which gradually starts increasing in size , can be detected by regular self examination of breast and annual mammography after the age of forty. regular self examination of breast with flat of hands five days after the periods are over are the best method for screening I think as it is inexpensive easy and does not involve any risk of radiation exposure. if you find any abnormal lump see a doctor for clinical examination and further tests as needed.,

What are the symptoms of cancer. How this disease are handling the people. Why there is no proper medicine and treatment is there. How the cancer is spread to other.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Cancer is a disease caused by uncontrolled proliferation of cells of body. It can effect any individual can be caused by carcinogens like tobacco alcohol pollution pesticides radiation etc or lifestyle related like lack of exercise, fatty food, spicy food etc, or may be genetic. Since many factors causing this disease it's difficult to identify the cause hence only the symptoms can be treated routinely unless we know exactly in which individual which gene or signel is faulty. It does not spread from one individual to other but people effected in groups may be exposed to similar risk factors.

Blood cancer is caused by uncontrolled proliferation of one of the component of blood, thereby inhibit the growth of others. Routine blood check up and awareness of symptoms like persistent fever, bleeding, bone pains, lump, rashes, anaemia must be investigated.

I am 66 years old and got operated for prostate. My prostates were very large as per doctor version. After operation 5 years have been lapsed but I feel still leakage at night and my cloth get wet.

There are many lifestyle and dietary guidelines that can be followed to protect against future flares or prevent gout or uric acid problems from occurring in the first instance: maintain a high fluid intake (2-4 liters a day) avoid alcohol maintain a healthy body weight eat a balanced diet limit fish, meat and poultry intake. If attempting to lose weight, avoid low-carbohydrate diets. If carbohydrate intake is insufficient, the body is unable to burn its own fat properly, releasing substances called ketones into the bloodstream. This results in a condition called ketosis that can increase the level of uric acid in the blood. It is most important to avoid foods that are high in purines, to ensure that the levels of uric acid in the blood do not get too high. Here is a list of high-purine foods to be wary of: beef kidneys brains dried beans and peas liver mackerel mushrooms lose some weight by walking or other exercise, avoid meats and get always be on a prescribed diet as prescribed by a registered dietitian. I am a registered dietitian, certified diabetes educator and a doctor, consult privately for detailed treatment plans using diet and medications.

Hi, Doc, my father aged 75 years diagnosed with lung cancer and the size of mass is 140mmx110mmx116 mm and lab report is small cell carcinoma. Now a days they feel anxiety and pain in left side and the mass has moved out from lung to upper side of chest and we can see in the upper side of chest. We don't want to go for chemo as per age barrier. Is there any other drug or medicine which can reduce the pain and anxiety? And also is it possible to operate and remove the mass? Thank you.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help. Well, first and foremost, I would advise you to meet up an oncosurgeon, experienced in thoracic oncology cases, in person. He/ she can do the needful assessment and can advise further on whether a surgery is feasible at this stage and the prognosis thereof. In general, the treatment outlook is influenced by a host of factors including stage and its associated comorbidities, age, vitality, gene expressions, chromosomes affected, histopathological grading and the type of cancer etc all. Usually, small cell lung cancers are difficult to treat than the non small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) ones. However, an integrative treatment with suitable alternative medicines can help alleviate quality of life issues including pain, anxiety etc all, and also help improve clinical outcomes as possible contextually. Post consultation with your oncologist, you can revert with all relevant diagnostics, treatment history, and the conventional treatment plan, if any, etc all for further naturopathic traction from my end. Hope this helps. Do take care and all the very best. Sincerely,
