Joepathy for the treatment of ailments affecting the Prostate
March 15 2010
I was first diagnosed with an enlarged Prostate in 1995 and was prescribed Ciprofloxacin 500mg to fight the infection Prostatitis and Hytrin to relax the Prostate to help in passing urine. With the first tablet of Hytrin I discovered that I was unable to stand erect as Hytrin is an Alpha Blocker which lowers Blood Pressure which in turn relaxes the Prostate. I was then left to my own devices to ease the Urine flow which I did by using the two standard remedies prescribed for this ailment, Sabal Serrulata and Conium, both of which seemed to work in some manner but did not continue to do so after a few days.
At that time I had a slight accident where I grazed the skin of my shin which was annoyingly painful and showed the white surface fat layer under the skin. The remedy of choice was Arnica which I took immediately in the Dry dose pellets sublingually. I was agreeably surprised to discover within the hour that I was able to pass urine freely in a manner far better than the Conium 30c I was using in the Dry dose pellets and decided that Arnica was the remedy for my problem. I used to take it twice daily and was able to stave off any surgery till 2002 when I went into a full blockage of urine when I was forced to have a Retropubic Prostactectomy which was effectiveand normalized my problems till about 5 weeks ago when I discovered that I was suffering from a low grade temperature and burning when voiding urine and was diagnosed with Prostatitis again after the space of 8 years after surgery. I then took Ciprofloxacin 500mg twice daily for 12 days and this cleared up the problem. I was also prescribed Flomax, a drug that relaxes the Prostate thus easing the passing of urine but since I had avoided all drugs other than on a SOS basis I decided to use Conium 6c in the Wet dose instead which I now take twice daily. I have also continued to take the Arnica 30c in the Wet dose nightly as I have done since 1996.
The combination of both Conium 6c and Arnica 30c seems to have reduced the enlarged Prostate which was responsible for my second attack of Prostatitis which was due to the retention of Urine which in turn caused the infection. I do not have any Dysuria today and my Urologist confirmed that my enlarged Prostate has reduced in size within the last 5 weeks since he last examined it internally and that it is not pressing on the Neck of the Bladder when I was diagnosed with Prostatitis for the second time in my 80 years.
I would recommend that anyone who reads this post and suffers from any difficulty or burning in passing Urine starts using Conium 6c in the Wet dose ASAP at least once daily with Arnica also once daily and I shall give instructions below on how this Wet dose is made. I can state with confidence that Conium 6c taken as prescribed will ease the flow of urine by relaxing the Prostate in a manner that drugs cannot equal. It will do this very safely in comparison to drugs which will eventually have some side effects. It will also reduce the enlarged Prostate which in turn will hopefully rule out any eventual surgery to the Prostate.
It is also necessary that a Blood Test is done annually to check the PSA (Prostate Specific Antigen) level which is accepted as normal at between 0 – 4. This Blood test can also be extended for Lipid Profile and other factors that your doctor may find necessary.
It was after my personal experience with Arnica that I prescribed it to many other patients who presented any one of the many ailments associated with the Prostate which are quite common with advancing years in males. In fact this ailment is reputed to increase in the same proportion as one’s age as at age 75 the percentage of males who suffer from some impediment to the prostate is 75%.
It is interesting to record that I have also treated over 5 patients who had TURP (Trans Urethral Resection of the Prostate) who were relieved of Dysuria and were able to pass urine freely without any impediment after surgery but who immediately afterwards suffered from urine retention which made them want to visit the toilet frequently sometimes hourly. In many cases this problem was due to the Urologist going in too deep into the Urethra which then affected the muscles in the Neck of the Bladder which resulted in their new ailment post surgery. This seemed to be grossly unfair after the patient summoned the courage to correct the first problem of Dysuria and ends up with the inability to contain urine for the standard 3-4 hours. They had returned back to their Urologists and complained of their new problem only to be informed that there was little or nothing that could be done about it.
They were all amazed to discover that Arnica 30c was able to correct and normalize this frequency of urination within a few hours after the first dose.
I have compiled my research on Arnica which I have used or prescribed for many ailments and diseases which are not recorded in the Materia Medicas and Repertories currently used in Homeopathy and you are invited to visit:

The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:
Order the remedy in a 5ml Alcoholl pack also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle with a dropper arrangement.
Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake the bottle hard before you take a capful which is the dose. Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this shaking must be done every time before a capful of the bottle is sipped as directed.
