Herbal Remedies for Prostate Problems
There are many herbs used by both Ayurveda and Chinese medicine. The yin – yang theory of Chinese herbalism and the dosha theory of Ayurveda provide a similarly balanced approach to the understanding of health, disease, and treatment. They agree closely, too, in their understanding of herbs and other natural substances like minerals and animal products.
Let’s look at how the two oldest systems resolve the enlarged prostate problems, which result in a number of uncomfortable symptoms. Both systems would use reducing therapy, which combines clearing heat in the lower body and removing stagnation in the swollen prostate.
The traditional Chinese formula ProstateSure™ (Kai Kit Wan), also known as “Reduce Prostate Swelling Pills”, has been known to treat prostate problems. It is an all-natural traditional Chinese formula that cleanses the blood, cools heat, and drains dampness from the lower body. It strengthens the kidneys, which control the prostate.
ProstateSure™ (Kai Kit Wan) is a well balanced formula containing the chief herbs, which address the main symptoms, and supporting herbs, which support the primary function of the chief herbs and develop their effects. There is also a group of assisting herbs, which increase the overall power of digestion and help the body to assimilate the formula and eliminate toxins that may be liberated through the action of the primary herbs. Finally, protective herbs like Chinese licorice are added to protect the stomach and digestion.
Most men experience positive results just in a few days of taking this herbal formula.
Ayurveda employs the same principles using traditional Ayurvedic herbs. The best general herb is Gokshura, particularly when combined with Ashwaganda. Shilajit is useful as well.
Most commonly, enlarged prostate is a Vata condition and comes in the Vata stage of life. Symptoms include lower back pain, low energy, and constipation. The treatment involves a standard anti – Vata diet with more oily and nutritive food. Good herbs are Bala, Kapikacchu, Guggul, and Marshmallow, added to tonic herbs like Ashwaganda and Gokshura, and the Kidney tonics.
Pitta type enlarged prostate involves infection, swelling, and possible fever. The urine will be dark yellow or red. The treatment involves cooling and diuretic herbs like Uva Ursi, Echinacea, or Punarvana, added to tonic herbs like Ashwaganda and Gokshura or formulas like Chyavan Prash. Lemon grass tea can be taken regularly to cool down the aggravated dosha.
Kapha type enlarged prostate is due to water retention and excess phlegm. Treatment involves spicy diuretics, such as Cinnamon, Ginger, Cloves, Cubebs, and Juniper berries. Shilajit and Guggul are important as long term remedies.
This Chinese medicine helps both acute and chronic prostatitis, but be sure it is has been evaluated by a physician first. The bacteria involved are sometimes particularly dangerous, and the symptoms may also indicate prostate cancer.
