Prostate Problem and its Natural Healing

Enlargement of the prostate gland iS a common problem in older men and can easily be corrected by surgery. For those who would prefer to avoid an operation, Chinese Medicine may be able to provide the answer. The dampness in the body has to be eradicated and the Qi moved. This iS a complicated treatment, but plantain seed, water plantain, cinnamon bark and cork tree bark will be used. Goldenseal, and saw palmetto are also helpful.

While not cancerous. an enlarged prostate can nevertheless cause problems. If it becomes too large. it obstructs the urethral canal, interfering with urination and the ability to empty the bladder completely. The major symptom of enlargement of the prostate is the need to pass urine frequently, with frequency increasing as time goes on. A man may find himself rising several times during the night to urinate. There can also be pain, burning, and difficulty In starting and stopping urination.

When 60-year-old John's bladder problems began, the deterioration followed rapidly over the next six months. 'I couldn't have a drink of water without having to rush to pass water half an hour afterwards. My GP sent me to see a specialist, and he said, "No problem. a small operation will do it. " but I didn't like the idea of surgery. SO I decided to consult Chinese Doctor (Dr. D. Wu)to see if there was any prospect of treatment without involving surgery. 'That was 3 months ago. I have been on herbal tablets since. and although I am still aware that I am not completely back to normal. I am very much better. Dr. Wu told me the problem stemmed from a kidney weakness, and that he would work on that. and on my general state Of health. because I alSO had a problem with asthma.'

The treatment concentrated on the kidneys, because once they were strengthened, the quality of the urine would improve. and the condition would clear itself. Because the kidney was not working properly, poor urine Was irritating the prostate gland. Treatment for breathing conditions usually involves the kidney. and the herbs Dr. Wu prescribed are also used in the treatment of asthma. John's new domestic routine would certainly help, smiled the doctor, but it Was the herbs that really did the trick.
