This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Consistent with age, the prostrate also increases in size which is called as benign prostatic hypertrophy. This pushes on the urinary bladder posteriorly and causes retention of urine after evacuation. It also causes symptoms like frequency of urination, urgency for urination, feeble stream of urination, intermittent stoppage and dribbling at the end of urination. It can cause constipation too. Homeopathy has good remedies to see that the enlargement does not lead to the pressure symptoms, invalidating the need for surgery.

What does the person seeking advise gain from your rhetoric. If you have specific questions to ask then list them down...or if you wish to recommend any remedy then name it.

Obviously you want him to email direct to you. So you use this forum to advertise your email.

Either clearly guide the person seeking advise or KEEP AWAY.

I am 75 years old and was first diagnosed with BPH in 1996. My prostate was estimated at 75gm and tests for cancer were negative with PSA at 35. Hytrin was prescribed by my Uro but I could not tolerate it as my BP which is normally 120/80 was further depressed causing severe distress.

I used Conium M 30c which was effective for some time and then Sabal S 30c which seemed to be better. Both remedies were effective for a short period and the usual problems associated with BPH returned. I used Arnica 30c for an injury and discovered that it was far more effective for my prostate problems than the first two that I was using.

I used this remedy for 6 years till I came into Urine retention caused directly by a long 21 hours flight when the lack of oxygen at 39000 ft seemed to be the direct cause. I had an open Prostectomy in 2002 and am back to normal today.

I would advice you to use Arnica 30c dose 2 balls (3mm Ø) taken 3 times daily under the tongue. Your symptoms should stabilize within 24 hours and if they do, you may continue on this dose for a week and then reduce it to just 2 balls taken twice daily.

Arnica 30 is quite safe for long time use as I have done so every night up to today for 8 years. It promotes deep sleep and is perhaps responsible for my BP of 120/80 at my age. You may not take coffee, cola drinks, and any preserved foods that contain sodium nitrite like ham bacon sausages etc.

Please remember that there is no cure for BPH and all one can do is to adopt a "watchful waiting" attitude for the future. Have regular blood tests done for PSA (Prostate Specific Antigen) at least yearly and have ultra sound scans done at that time and your Uro can advice you of the growth, if any, of your prostate. A biopsy is also recommended especially if the PSA is above 8 and your Uro can recommend if this is necessary later.

I hope that my advice helps.

I presume that you have read my last post dated August 11 2004 above where I detailed my experience with my enlarged Prostate for which I had open surgery also referred to as Retropubic Prostatectomy which in the long run is the safest and most effective surgery as it virtually puts the patient back to what he was 10 years before he first started to suffer from his prostate problem.

The problem with the other method TURP or Trans Urethral Resection of the Prostate is that while easing the flow of urine which is done by boring into the prostate gland thereby drilling out the Urethra or tube that connects the bladder to the penis, the surgeon is unable to position the device used for this surgery and judge the depth of the excavation. If this tool cuts in too deep into the neck of the bladder the patient is condemned to a life of incontinence similar to what you are now experiencing with the difference that there is no restriction on the passage of urine which will flow easily. The problem then is that there is no storage capacity and he is therefore compelled to rush to the toilet very often. This hopefully will not be as often as you are now experiencing, but it still can be a source of concern.

You can use Arnica 30 dose 2 balls taken 3 times daily under the tongue and you will notice within about an hour after the first dose that you can urinate easier and that your storage capacity is also increased which will mean that you do not have to visit the toilet as often as you are now doing.

Please follow the routine that I have adviced above and it is essential that you do a blood test to check for your PSA (Prostate Specifie Antigen) level which should be between 0-4. If it is higher than 8, you will have to do Biopsies of your prostate to check for other developments regularly.

I am suffering from "Chronic Non Infectious Focal Prostatitis" , have seen many homeopaths, and have used tons of medicines during the last 10 years to no avail

Can Arnica 30 help in my case

My Symtoms are
loss of prostatic fluid with urine....urine urgency.....premature ejaculation......dark circles under my eyes......faltering memory.......premature aging (I am 42 years old, look like 50)

Please advice

Hello Mr.Hare Krishna Mani,
According your symptoms Causticum 200c three times a day for five days and Sabal serrulata mother tincture, twenty drops in a cup of water, morning and bedtime for one month would be helpful.
Dr.Venugopal Gouri.
 
DRVenugopal last decade
Dear Sazim,

Prostatitis is caused by a bacterial infection of the Prostate but your "Chronic Non Infectious Focal Prostatitis" is a condition which I have not encountered so far. I do really wonder if your Urologists based their diagnosis on the fact that no bacteria were discovered in the biopsies which I presume were taken from your prostate. It is not impossible that although no bacteria were isolated, the possibility exists that there may still be a focus of infection which was not discovered in the biopsies taken which only take the tissue in the area scooped out by the needle. Unless you have had at least 18 biopsies of your prostate taken at in the same session, I believe that your condition should be treated with an antibiotic.

I am very concerned that you have suffered with this problem for the last 10 years with the symptoms that you have described and taken'tons' of drugs. I believe that the signs of your premature ageing were caused by these drugs you have taken all of which have not helped you. This is indeed a slur on modern allopathic medicine and I do hope that we can help you to overcome your chronic ailment.

I would like to know if an ultra sound scan was made of your prostate and what the estimated weight is of your prostate today and also what your PSA (Prostate Specific Antigen) level is of your blood. These details can help to get a better insight of your chronic condition.

I would also like to know if you were originally prescribed a long course of an antibiotic for at least 6 weeks as this is usually how a problem like yours should be treated. The antibiotic of choice is Ciprofloxacine. Dose 1 tablet twice daily.

If you are satisfied that your condition is not caused by any bacterial infection, I would recommend that you use Arnica 30c dose 2 pellets taken 3 times daily under the tongue and see for yourself if it helps you. You can rest assured that it can never do you any harm and can only help your condition. Please remember to observe the usual taboos of coffee, cola drinks and preserved meats -- ham, bacon, sausages as they all antidote the remedy.

The blood supply to the prostate is accepted as being very limited and this is the reason why an infection of the prostate is difficult to be treated successfully with antibiotics which are usually prescribed for only a few days. This is why I inquired if you took this course of the antibiotic for a long period.

An exercise which will help to stimilate the flow of blood to the prostate is Squats. I would recommend that you do at least 20 squats slowly daily and if possible twice daily. This will draw blood into the thigh muscles and in the process, it will also promote the blood flow into the genital region.

Please study the many posts on this thread as they will give you a wealth of information from me and others. Please note that my posts reflect my personal experience with my prostate and this personal experience can sometimes be better than the theorizing on a condition that Urologists are prone to adopt in diagnosing a difficult condition such as yours which cannot be subjected to direct investigation to discover its real cause over the past 10 years.

I see that Dr Venugopal has also posted his advice on the treatment of a problem with the prostate and if the Arnica does not help, you can use the remedies that he has prescribed.

Since you have had this condition for the last 10 years it is very likely that it can be a long process to overcome it and if it is finally ruled out not to be due to an infection you will only be able to use various remedies to help with your problem and Arnica 30 is the remedy of choice.

If Arnica is your remedy it should give you almost immediate relief after the first dose by lowering the feeling that you have of the urgency to urinate. If in fact you do notice relief you will know that you are using the correct remedy whcih you can safely take for the rest of your life.

You may like to know that I have taken Arnica 30 in a reduced dosage of 2 pellets every night since 1996 as I used it in place of Hytrin to which I was allergic and since my surgery I continued to take it as I discovered
that it helps me to sleep deeply and is perhaps also responsible for my sense of wellness at age 75 without any pain or stiffness in my body. My BP is 120/80 Pulse 65. Many people who meet me cannot believe that I am at an advanced age as they usually estimate my age to be around 55-60 years.

Arnica is known to relax the arteries and in doing so, it should at least theoretically lower blood pressure and ease the flow of blood throughout the body especially in the capillaries which in turn would mean a healthy skin tone.

I am aware that the tenets of Classical Homeopathy will not sanction the use of any remedy on a long term basis in the manner that I have used Arnica for the last 9 years but I have proved that it has done me a lot of good and I intend taking it for the rest of my life.

I would recommend it to anyone who reads this post and they can experience for themselves the positive effect that this amazing remedy has on one's sense of wellness. If just 2 pellets of Arnica 30c are taken under the tongue last thing at night the person who does so will sleep very deeply as scores of my friends who have used this remedy have testified.

Hi! well wishers in this forum

Thanks for posting many useful information tocure prostate without surgery. Personally I used Arnica, Sabal, Saw Palmetto and a BOIRON combination medicine recommended by my family homeopathy doctor. Temporary relief was seen. Now the present condition is that the prostate is moderately enlarged.

The bladder volume was 211 cc prevoid with a post void residual of 35 cc (20 cc is the upper limit of normal for post void bladde residual). The prostate measures 3.8 x 3.3 x 4.1 cm and appear moderately enlarged, elevating the bladder floor. The prostate weight is estimaed at 28 grams, corresponding to Grade I hypertrophy. Conclusion by doctor is Increased Post-void bladder residual. Grade I prostate hypertrophy.

Urologist appointment is pending for detailed exam. Understand that Homeopathy can manage to reduce or stop further enlagment and flow of urine will be easier and rsidual in bladder will be minimum (stndard for a snormal healthy human being < 20 cc.)

I will try from today the medications suggested by you inthis forum.

My diabetes is in border line. Cholestrol is high above 200. BP is 160/80 again high - of course this perhaps coulld be due to tension.

Once again thanks to you all for helping this 66 years old man who is considered by friends and colleagues 45 years. They call me young-budda (young aged man) Otherwise active working is sales and traveling a lot.

Many thanks I will keep you posted the results

GOD BLESS YOU ALL

Radhakrishna,

Your prostate problem is indeed very mild and I believe that if you take Arnica 30 dose 2 pellets twice daily you will have considerable relief and it is possible that you may even get over your problem competely.

The Arnica will also help to sleep very deeply and you will notice that you wake up quite refreshed, as I do when I wake up at my age of 75 years.

I presume that you have read my posts to Sazim above.

You seem to have misunderstood the Dosage to be used for your problem. In your last post you have stated

"I shall take Arnica 30x x 3 pills inthe night before going to bed."

The dose I have suggested is just 2 pellets of Arnica 30c (not 30x) to be taken twice daily with the last dose shortly before bedtime. A 30x remedy is a lower potency to the 30c.

Thank you for your kind thoughts and your interpretation of my name. I shall be interested to learn where you got the definition.

Dear Joe

Our sincere respects and regards to you for giving us the prescription. Here in Ottawa when we approached the Homeopathy supplier they gave us 30x We do not know whether 30x is equivalent to 30c or not? In case we cannot get this here will it be possible for you to send one or two botles to me and advise me the cost and freight so that I shall remit to you in advance. Even we recently got medicines from India all are 30x potencies only.

Thanks for your help

We offer our prayers to you and to the Lord to give you strength, stamina, and good health to continue to serve the people inthis planet earth with your simple presriptions to cure and remdy the symptoms in the body so that the soul can chant and be happy always

yours

It is very strange to me that Homeopathic remedies are not available in Ottawa in the standard potencies that are commonly used.

30x is the equivalent of 15c and may just about serve as an substitute to the 30c potency that I recommend.

You can get any potency of any Homeopathic remedy in India at very low cost. I get my remedies from the Zoriastrian Pharmacy in Mumbai and do not have any problem in choosing the potency.

Since you already have the 30x with you, I would suggest that you start on the therapy and report results in a week.

Hi! Joe
Thanks for your early I started with Arnica for two days result is less urination

But clinical trial of blood now shows something else also

alkaline phosphatase reading 760 normal range is 30 - 150 u/l well this is something I do not know Specialist appointment is taken to test further
Do you have any idea or any othr members have some idea on this??

Thanks

radhekrishna last decade
Glad to note that the remedy worked even though it was a lower potency to what I normally used myself prior to surgery, and have also recommended to others who are using it on a daily basis, some for many years.

I cannot advice you on your enhanced Alkaline Phosphatase level but this obviously has no bearing on your use of Arnica 15c which as you state resulted in less urination. You did not however indicate if the flow was better. Arnica 30c usually relaxes the Prostate which in turn promotes easy flow and helps to empty the bladder leaving little or no residue.

Your PSA (Prostate Specifin Antigen) level is the more important reading on your blood and you should keep regular track of this reading. Please contact your Uro and get his expert opinion on the enhanced Alkaline Phosphatase reading.

You might also get the Arnica 30c from another pharmacy in Ottawa as I would like you to take the same potency that I use even today as my nightly dose and what others have also discovered to be perhaps the most effective remedy to control the flow.

This amazing remedy has also helped many patients in my age group who had TURP surgery (Trans Urethral Resection of the Prostate). which left them with major incontinence post surgery. This was the aftermath of the cutter used for surgery going too deep up the Neck of the Bladder which eases the blockage in the flow but leaves the patient with little or no control of his bladder.

How Arnica works to help to lenghten the time between visits to the toilet, I do not know but it works far better than the standard drugs that are prescribed to help with this condition, and what is more important does not cause the cramps that result.

Hydrangea Q five to six drops in a cup of water morning and evening can be helpful in checking and even curing enlarged prostate.This was the medicine recommended by the great Burnett for prostatitis,bladder stones, dribbling urine etc. I have seen dozens of cases being helped by this medicine. You may try it for a month and see the difference for yourself.

Dear Dr Sayeed Ahmed

Salaam Malekkum!

It is nice of to have posted a suggestive remedy for enlarged prostte. We read the paper and noted many remedies. But on examination of my symptoms vis-a-vis your suggested remedies, there is no symptoms shown on the paper is experienced by me. My only problem is frequent urination to be exact 4 to 5 times in the night, 7 to 8 times during day time. No pain, no burning, no other difficulties, stree and flow is good, no dribbling, and no pain in pelvic area etc.

Urge to urinate, frequency to visit wash room and night urination are only three points in my case.

However, Arnica appears to have working for the last week. Thanks to Joe whose suggestion is working well. In fact I have all those medicines recommended by you in my Homeopathy Drug shelf.

Why the function of prostate is disturbed when the nature has kept it in the body for certain purpose? Who changed the design of the prostte. In my case an active man traveling daily to work and back and long trips of 12 hours in car, there are no problems. Why such a small organ inside the body is agitating to cooperate with the whole body and going againt the will of the mind and soul.

Alas! when we go to urologist, they are like auto mechanics who are famous for "part chaning" They are unable to correct or cure though they experienced cutting "dead bodies" which are inactive and come out with solution "may be" " perhaps" possibility" and other general remarks to safeguard themselves from all reactions to disintegrating the part from the body.

Kindly find out how this damn symptom can be cured by natural and/or homeopathic medications

Our sincere thanks and regads to all who have suggested remedies to cure my symptoms.

I am happy that my accidental discovery of Arnica 30 which I used for over 7 years to keep my waterworks flowing is also helping you. I had tried the standard Conium and Sabal S but these were only temporary while the Arnica was the ultimate cure for my problem. I have since used it to help many others and they have invariably been helped.

The wonder of this same remedy to help post TURP cases is what I just cannot fathom. Right now I have in Colombo 4 patients in my age group who were Turped with worse results that pre Turp. The flow is excellent but they have major incontinence and have to visit the toilet at least every hour or in some cases every half hour.

I just cannot understand how Arnica can possibly help this condition which in one case it has done permanently 6 months after the surgery.

I believe that the reason for this incontinence post Turp is because the surgeon went too deep with the cutter which is a tiny roller device which is activated from outside and if the tool cuts into the Neck of the Bladder, the patient is unable to store any urine in the bladder which has to be frequently evacuated.

The bonus with Arnica is that I sleep very soundly and wake up refreshed. I have tested it by not taking it for a week and on about the fourth day without it I usually find that I am not as fresh and do not sleep soundly. I believe that Arnica which is known to increase the blood flow especially in the capillaries helps the body to recover. This is perhaps the reason why many do not believe that I am 75 years of age with a good skin tone and general vitality which belies my age.

I read some of the articles that Dr Sayeed Ahmed has on his website and I would recommend that all who are interested in Homeopathy make copies of these articles as I feel that they can help many.

I hope that Dr Sayeed also includes Arnica in the remedies that he has listed for BPH and also for the treatment of incontinence which has resulted after TURP surgery as I discovered that this condition is prevelant in over 50% of the cases treated by this surgery.

Dear Mr Radhekrishna:

Thanks for your kind explanation. I have great regards for Mr Joe De Livera for his deep and appreciable knowledge in the field of homoeopathy. Kindly try his suggested remedy Arnica and in any case if you are not satisfied you may please use "Equisetum&quot; in mother tinchure in 3x potency 5 drops 8 hourly in little water and let me know the result after using for about 15 days or so. Even if it fails you may try Rhus Tox 30 3 doses only in one day. If it fails, your detailed personal history will be needed to work out the case to find out the most suitable remedy. I hope that you may agree to my suggestion. Thanks and with best regards. My special regards and thanks to respected Mr Joe De Livera also for his kind suggestions and appreciation of my articles. His kind suggestion is noted with thanks.
 
Dr. Sayeed Ahmad last decade
Regarding Equisetum (Mother Tincture) in 3x potency, instead of 15 days please use it only for a week to see its result and if it fails, as suggested Rhus Tox 30 can be taken one dose in the morning, noon and evening only and watch its result and you may notice the result within 5-6 days. Even if it fails then a thorough case history will be required. However, as per my information, for frequent urination (day and night) following remedies are suggested but it depends upon the modalities of the patient as well as his other objective and subjective symptoms including his family history:

Alum., Apis, Calc, Canth, Caust, Colch, Lac-ac, Mag-m, Merc., Nat-m, Plant., Rhus-t., Sars.

With kindest regards.
