Decoction ingredients for inflamed prostate treatment

Last Updated on January 5, 2023 by Max

Why do I use shilajit for inflamed prostate treatment?

Wikipedia defines Shilajit as a thick, sticky tar-like substance with a color ranging from white to dark brown, found predominantly in the mountains of India and Russia.

In Ayurveda, an Indian folk medicine, shilajit has been widely used for over 3000 years predominantly as a rejuvenator, urinary tract rejuvenation, handling of sexual and bladder disorders, nervous diseases, fracture of bones, anti-aging, overall body strengthening, and for treating many other ailments. According to Ayurveda, shilajit arrests the process of aging and produces rejuvenation, which are two crucial aspects of an Ayurvedic Rasayana.
A lethal dose of shilajit is LD50 1g/kg. Ld50 stands for the amount of the substance required to kill 50% of the tested population. 

Shilajit has been reported to include at least 85 minerals in ionic form, as well as triterpenes, humic acids, and fulvic acids. About 85% of shilajit makes up humus, and the rest is an organic substance derived from the vegetable remains that have undergone the influence of high temperature and pressure for a long period. Humins, humic acids, and fulvic acids amount to around 85% of shilajit organic matter.

Old Ayurvedic tractates mention a large variety of uses of shilajit as a potential rejuvenator and immunomodulator. Nowadays, only in India and former USSR republics, evidence-based studies to prove these facts are underway. However, if you search Wikipedia, you will find the only sentence about the health benefits of shilajit: “The proposed immuno-modulatory activity does not stand the test of critical assessment and is considered unproven.” This statement is not based on a comprehensive experimental study but rather on a review of the earlier studies and texts and cannot be considered an adequate argument to abandon the millennial heritage of Ayurvedic medicine. Moreover, do we have assays specific enough to test any substance thoroughly in terms of its usefulness for health? Meanwhile, many traditional ways of healing from Chinese and Indian folk practices have stood the test of time and become available for extensive use globally. More and more people who are disappointed about the durability and effectiveness of treatment with modern drugs understand the wisdom of the holistic approach to health intrinsic to the medicine of ancient civilizations in the past.

Let’s dig a bit deeper into the pharmacological qualities of shilajit.

Anti-inflammatory qualities of shilajit.

Actually, the presence of a wide range of vitamins, microelements, fulvic acid, and other biologically active substances determines a broad spectrum of diseases shilajit can cure. 
Since all ingredients in shilajit are presented in their biologically active forms, their bioavailability is high and balanced to make a smooth health recovery in the long run. Fulvic acid and silicon combined with copper, retinol, and vitamin B reduce inflammation and promote the creation of new tissue. Vitamin C and E presented in shilajit manifest themselves in their skin protection quality. Shilajit can provide your body with extra magnesium to prevent chronic inflammation. Just mix shilajit with your skin cream in a ratio of 1:3 and apply it to the inflamed area. 

Fulvic Acid is the core element of shilajit that determines its magical benefits. Fulvic acid is a generic term used to refer to a group of natural acids found in healthy soils, rocks, and water. It can be compared with the ultimate concentration of life-giving molecules, remaining after the final decomposition of living matter for thousands and millions of years.

Inflammation of different etiology causes pain, stress, and depression in our body, which eventually results in severe disorders.  Fulvic acid, together with the immune system, reduces the release of cytokine and interleukin molecules indicatives of inflammation and promotes the production of antioxidant molecules scavengers of free radicals, which cause inflammation in our body. Moreover, shilajit constituents such as carotenoids, retinol, terpenoids, and vitamin E are potent antioxidants preventing our body cells from being damaged.

The antibacterial qualities of shilajit are attributed to humin, humic acids, and silver. These elements exhibit strong antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties.

Sexual potency, spermatogenic and ovogenic effects of shilajit.

Shilajit was reported to increase the number of sperms in male rats and the number of ovulations in females. Zinc and selenium as components of shilajit can improve sexual performance, keep sperms healthy and regulate sex drive. 

We reviewed only a few relevant activities of shilajit. Still, the reality is that it does not matter what aspect of our health is considered: digestive system, heart, circulatory system, immune system, skin and bones, longevity or rejuvenation shilajit manifests itself as a life-giving, healing, correcting and defending essence. 
If nature gives us such a unique remedy, it would be folly not to take advantage of it to heal our inflamed prostate. Even if we do not get the desired result tomorrow, it took us years to get to the point where we are; shilajit, with its magic healing properties, will help us to get rid of the illness gradually. 
In our recipe for inflamed prostate treatment, we use only 150-200 mg of shilajit. There are many various fake types of shilajit on the market; some of them represent raw shilajit, including sand, soil, wood, and other impurities, the others only look like shilajit, but there is nothing to do with shilajit. High-quality shilajit you can order here.  

Smallflower hairy Willowherb (Epilobium parviflorum)

The second ingredient in my recipe is Willowherb (Epilobium parviflorum). 

epilobium perviflorum
Epilobium perviflorum

Epilobium parviflorum herb has been traditionally used in western folk medicine to treat enlarged prostate disorders of the urinary tract and kidneys. Epilobium improves prostate health, decreases its size, and normalizes urination frequency. The healing effect of Epilobium parviflorum has been clinically validated, and its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities have been proven in evidence-based studies. Extracts of this plant have been shown to inhibit the cell cycle of the prostate cells and depress their growth; they are used for the treatment of prostate and bladder cancers.
It contains beta-sitosterol, tannin, quercetin, oenothein A and B, and Gallic acid. Oenothein works as a 5 Alpha-reductase inhibitor and hormone balancing substance; it stimulates the male reproductive system and improves sexual function.
According to the Physicians’ Desk Reference for Herbal Medicines (3rd Edition), there are no observable side effects for Epilobium parviflorum.

Eucalyptus leaves

Chinese, Indian, and European traditional medicine have included Eucalyptus in the treatment of a range of conditions for centuries.

Eucalyptus leaves contain eucalyptol, flavonoids, and tannins; flavonoids are antioxidants of plant origin, and tannins may support inflammation reduction. Eucalyptol is a component of numerous brands of mouthwash and a cough suppressant. It controls slime oversecretion in the airway by anti-inflammatory cytokine inhibition.

The Antimicrobial properties of Eucalyptus leaves and essential oil are commonly used in conventional medicine to relieve sore throat, sinusitis, and bronchitis. Antibacterial effects of eucalyptus oil on pathogenic bacteria in the upper respiratory tract have been shown in some modern research.

Side effects and precautions.

Eucalyptus products (oils) cannot be applied to the skin until the oil is diluted; usually, it is diluted with 99-95% of olive oil.
Eucalyptus can irritate; do not use it too close to the eyes.
It is highly allergenic, and hence it is recommended to do an allergy test before using eucalyptus; if there is no reaction within 24 hours following your putting a drop of diluted oil on your arm, it is safe to use.
It is not safe to take eucalyptus oil orally because it is poisonous.
In our recipe for inflamed prostate treatment, we use only dried leaves that exclude any adverse reactions unless an allergic reaction.


Selecting these specific ingredients for inflamed prostate treatment, I tried to focus on their anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and urogenital organ healing qualities as well as their negligible adverse side effects. Shilajit provides a wide range of healing effects on any system of our body, supporting it and stimulating its immune defense. Epilobium parviflorum has been long used to treat prostate disorders and balance sex hormones, and the anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties of eucalyptus leaves are beyond doubt; we use them in daily life.

  1. Thank you so much for the tea recipe. I have used it for 7 days and have had immediate results. Have had problems about a year now and just drinking the tea cut down the night time urinating to once a night. Also feeling a shift in free testosterone being released and more energy. -David

    1. Thank you, David, for your comment. I’m happy that my advice proved to be helpful for you. Hope you’ll find much more interesting information about prostate health on my site. If you have any questions, just ask, I would be happy to help.
      Wishing you health!

  2. Greetings Max –

    I discovered your site a while ago and have begun to use the decoction via the enema method. I have not been using willow herb as you suggested in the write up. My problem has been diagnosed as BPH, but early this year I had a crisis where I could not go and had to catheterize for about weeks. It was later diagnosed as prostate infection, and I was on antibiotics for 3 weeks.

    Following antibiotics course I was very well for some months, then gradually worsening, thus am trying the decoction. Do you have any new information or recommendations? My results have been mixed. After about a week, Some days are quite good, others not so much. I use moderate coffee and at most one beer or wine per evening. Looking for additional suggestions or comments based on your experience with this. Also, based on my situation, any other suggested treatments.

    Thank you for your site, your expertise given so freely, Max. God bless you!

    1. Hi Jack
      We summarised the traditional European experience of BPH and prostatitis treatments in my blog Often it happens so that the treatment that worked well for some is not having the same effect in others. So it’s worth carefully trying some of them to figure out the best way for you. I found antiinflammatory enemas (once or so a month for prevention) and regular (2-3 times a week) stretching exercises ( helpful in keeping my prostate issues at bay. My strong suggestion is to include practicing stretching exercises into a daily routine for every man aged 50+.
      Have a great weekend!
