Prostate infection-Prostatitis


Enlarged prostate is managed by medications and surgery, based on the symptoms it is causing and the complexity of the enlargement.1

Ayurveda suggests aptarpana chikitsa (desaturation therapy) and advises basti (medicinal enemas) for mutravaha strotodushti (pathology of the urinary tract).3

Additionally, some diet (ahar) and lifestyle changes (vihar) are recommended to manage enlarged prostate. These include:3
