Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia and Its Homoeopathic Therapeutics
Dr. Yogeshwari Gupta | Dr. Anugrah Sharan Sharma
Abstract: Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is a non-neoplastic tumor-like enlargement of the prostate. It is commonly seen in men above the age of 50 years and its incidence approaches 75-80 % in men above 80 years. It is rarely a life threatening condition but has a significant effect on individuals quality of life in varying degrees. The primary symptoms of BPH are due to the prostate obstructing the urethra, they consist of hesitancy, poor prolonged flow and a sensation of incomplete emptying. Secondary (irritative) symptoms comprising urinary frequency, urgency of micturition and urge incontinence are not specific to BPH. Patients may present more dramatically with acute urinary retention when they are suddenly unable to micturate and develop a painful distended bladder. This is often precipitated by excessive alcohol intake, constipation or prostatic infection. . In conventional medicine, the treatment is not much remarkable but homoeopathy has very good results in treating LUTS as well as BPH. Homoeopathy is a natural system of medicine that utilizes minute doses of carefully selected medicines made from plants, minerals sources and many other natural substances, to enhance the bodys natural healing processes. In such disease where all other systems of medicine fail, Homoeopathy has an important role in improving the quality of life.
