Homeopathy is a gentle and effective mode of treatment. Homeopathy for prostatitis treatment is considered as one of the best alternative modes of treatment or, even, the main mode of treatment, depending on the intensity of the condition. Homeopathic treatment is based on the law of similar i.e. “Like cures like “.
A detailed case analysis is one of the major strengths of homeopathic treatment. Every patient with the prostate disease is evaluated as an individual case and treated accordingly. Various aspects, such as social, physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health, are taken into consideration while planning homeopathic treatment. Homeopathy aims at treating the patient as a whole rather than merely treating the diseased organs of the patient. So, homeopathic treatment is highly beneficial in treating prostatitis. Read on to learn all about it.
What Is Prostatitis?
As a matter of fact, the prostate is a gland of about walnut-size present between the bladder and penis. Any infection or inflammation can cause this gland to swell, squeezing the urethra and leads difficulty in urinating. This is the exact discomfort experienced by the individuals suffering from prostatitis, even though the cause of the inflammation of the glad depends on the type of prostatitis.
There are four types of prostatitis. They are listed below.
- Acute bacterial prostatitis
- Chronic bacterial prostatitis
- Nonbacterial prostatitis
Homeopathic treatment in such cases of prostatitis helps reduce the inflammation of the gland and surrounding organs. The pain associated with this condition can be controlled to a great extent with the Homeopathic medications.
In cases of acute prostatitis, homeopathy can act as the best substitute for antibiotics. Homeopathy helps the body to kill the bacteria all by itself and enhances the body’s own immunity, thereby treating the condition effectively. Homeopathic medications are given on individualistic levels and some of the common homeopathic medicines used for prostatitis are mentioned below.
1. Sabal serrulata
A lot of relief is obtained from acute prostatic troubles with this medicine. The discharge of the prostatic fluid, coldness in genital organs, and painful sexual intercourse indicate this remedy for relief. Frequent urination is also one of the marked signs which indicate sabal serrulata. If the drug is administered timely, surgical interference can be avoided in many cases.
