Folk remedies for the treatment of prostate adenoma
Diseases of the male reproductive system are dangerous because, starting in the early stages of development, the patient provokes their transition to more serious diseases. A bacterial infection of the genitourinary system, not cured in due time, causes prostatitis, and without proper attention, it develops into a prostate tumor.
In the case of prostate adenoma, treatment with folk remedies will effectively complement drug therapy.
Prostate adenoma and its features
Adenoma is a type of benign neoplasm that affects the prostate organ of a man. Growing, it squeezes the urethra. There is stagnation of urine, which becomes a favorable environment for the development of pathogenic microorganisms.
In addition to the transition to a malignant neoplasm, a tumor is also dangerous with other diseases that develop against its background. Patients with this diagnosis also suffer from:
- acute and chronic kidney failure;
- stones in the genitourinary system;
- infectious diseases of the genital tract.
Doctors believe that the main cause of adenoma today is the improper treatment of prostatitis and other male diseases. Hormonal imbalance, lack of sexual life, frequent stress and bad habits also contribute to the development of the tumor.
The diagnosis is subject to medical and sometimes surgical treatment. But the therapy of prostatitis and prostate adenoma is effectively complemented by alternative medicine methods based on natural products and medicinal plants.
Treatment of prostate adenoma with folk remedies is possible only as an additional therapy, which should be consulted with your doctor. The specialist will determine which prescriptions can be used for a particular patient, and which ones can harm his health and worsen the situation.

Medicinal herbs and their decoctions
A popular method of treatment is a decoction of onion husks. The husks of 5-6 onions are poured with a liter of boiling water and simmered over low heat for 5 minutes. The broth is insisted for about an hour, filtered.
To remove the pungent smell and make the drink tastier, honey added to a warm liquid will help. This decoction is drunk every time before meals, 100 ml. This recipe is effective for all diseases of the genitourinary system, manifested by difficulties with going to the toilet. The therapy can be supplemented with a fresh vegetable added to vegetable salads.
A good effect is given by herbal preparations that can be drunk instead of tea and coffee. The basis of this drink is stinging nettle. It can be brewed on its own or supplemented with licorice root. After mixing dried plants in equal proportions, they are poured with boiling water at the rate of 1 teaspoon of herbs per 1 glass of water. The broth is boiled over low heat for about 10 minutes, insisted and cleaned of plant residues. You need to drink a drink twice a day, regardless of food.
Nettle has a contraindication – diseases of the vascular system: varicose veins, thrombophlebitis, increased blood clotting.
If there are contraindications, another collection is prepared: from calendula, horsetail and yarrow. Having combined them in equal parts, take a tablespoon of the mixture, pour 0.5 liters of hot water and leave to infuse overnight. In the morning, the drink is filtered and drunk 100 ml half an hour before meals. During the day you need to drink the entire prepared infusion, and put fresh at night. This therapy should be continued for at least two months.
Another herb indispensable in the treatment of prostate adenoma is a well-known weed – wheatgrass. The recipe requires the roots of this plant, which are carefully removed, washed thoroughly and cut as small as possible. 2 tbsp . the resulting raw material is poured into 200 ml of cold water and allowed to brew for at least eight hours.
It is better to prepare such a drink during the night. In the morning, the water is drained, and the roots are again filled with water, this time with boiling water in a volume of 1.5 liters. The container with wheatgrass should be wrapped in a blanket or scarf and insisted for another hour. The resulting “tea” is drunk in the third part of a glass three times a day.
All medicinal plants are sold ready-made in any pharmacy. If you want to collect them yourself, you need to do it correctly, observing the seasonality of the collection, the rules for drying and storing herbs.
Horse chestnut is also highly trusted in folk medicine.
Two green shells of fruits are poured with 1.5 cups of boiling water, simmered under a lid over low heat for a quarter of an hour, filtered. The drink is cooled and taken twice a day for half a glass.
Healing tinctures for diseases of men
Tinctures are used for prostatitis and adenoma. The healing properties of these folk methods include a positive healing effect:
- fight against viruses and bacteria;
- increasing the body’s defenses.
Under the influence of such tinctures, the size of the tumor decreases, but only if their use is allowed by the attending physician. Since all of these prescriptions contain alcohol, they may be incompatible with the drugs included in the main therapy and cause complications.
An effective remedy is propolis tincture. Substances contained in propolis fight pathogenic microflora, strengthen the immune system.
Preparing a propolis tincture is simple:
In a dark-colored glassware, the crushed beekeeping product and medical alcohol are mixed in an amount of 1: 2. The container is shaken and left to infuse in a dark and cool place (cellar, back room, etc.).
Every three days, the contents of the container are thoroughly mixed or shaken. After two weeks, the tincture is filtered, the resulting liquid is poured back into a glass vessel and treatment begins.
The resulting liquid, 30 drops, is added to water or milk and drunk twice a day. The course of treatment ends on the day when all the tincture is drunk.
You can prepare a tincture based on St. John’s wort – a medicinal herb with antimicrobial and antiviral properties. This herb improves blood circulation, eliminating stagnation of blood in the pelvis. 2 tbsp . dried leaves of St. John’s wort are mixed with 0.5 liters of vodka or ethyl alcohol, and then infused in a dark and cool place for a month.
As in the previous recipe, the container must be taken from dark glass. After the expiration of the infusion, the liquid is filtered and taken before meals, 1 teaspoon.
If unpleasant symptoms occur (nausea, vomiting, dizziness or headache), the tincture should be stopped immediately.
Baths with healing elixirs
Warming up gives a good effect, which is easy to provide at home with the help of baths. Such therapy will be effective subject to the rules:
The procedure should last from 15 to 20 minutes. A container is needed in which the patient will fit up to the waist in a sitting position. After the bath, bed rest is required for an hour. The duration of the course is 10-14 days. Baths are best done before bedtime to withstand the time period of rest.
The most popular collections are herbs with an antibacterial effect. This is chamomile, oak bark, linden flowers or sage root. All of them can be purchased dried at any pharmacy kiosk. Less effective, but also often used collection is a mixture of flowers of willow-tea and marsh cudweed.
The decoction is prepared as follows: the plants are mixed in equal proportions, 5 tablespoons of the resulting collection are taken and mixed with three liters of boiling water. Close the lid and leave for at least an hour. The resulting infusion is filtered and poured into a prepared container, diluted with warm water, pleasant for the patient’s body. After the procedure, you need to gently blot the body with a towel (do not rub!), put on clothes of their natural fabric and lie under the covers.
Such baths improve blood circulation in the pelvic organs, relieve inflammation, thereby reducing the symptoms of prostate adenoma.
It is useful to make microclysters with the same decoctions. For the procedure, an infusion of room temperature, which is introduced into the anus, is suitable. The volume of liquid required is small – only 100 ml. You need to hold the liquid for at least half an hour.
If such a time period cannot be maintained, the course of therapy is extended. So, if you managed to hold the enema for only 15 minutes, it will take not 15, but 30 procedures. The effect of enemas is the same as that of baths, but before using them, you should definitely consult with your doctor.
An effective alternative to herbal preparations is the use of bee products: honey and propolis tincture can also be added to water. A good anti-inflammatory effect is provided by bee subpestilence, from which tincture is also prepared.
It is better to acquire dead death at honey fairs or apiaries. For a prescription required for a course of therapy, you will need 1 cup of the product. Insects are mixed with diluted medical alcohol or vodka (0.5 liters), placed in a dark glass container and infused for 14 days. Every 2-3 days, the tincture is shaken, mixing the contents.
Two weeks later, the finished product is filtered and used to fight the disease. Tincture can be drunk 30 ml half an hour before meals three times a day or added in a spoonful to herbal baths.
Prostate adenoma is an insidious disease, but treatable. Therapy for this diagnosis is necessarily prescribed by the attending doctor, his instructions must be followed exactly. Incorrect therapy or deviation from its rules can lead to serious consequences: the transition of a benign neoplasm to a malignant one, the need for surgical treatment, etc.
Medicine presents new possibilities for treatment and recovery. The disadvantage of non-traditional therapy is the long period and the incompatibility of some prescriptions with the components of pharmaceutical preparations.
When deciding to supplement traditional medicine with folk methods, you need to follow the principle of “do no harm”, therefore sometimes it is better to refuse non-traditional recipes or use them to prevent relapse and restore the body after medical treatment.
