my mother is 70 year old
she is in incontinence urine
can't control urine
everytime she is feeling of urine tht coming
can i give her DAMIANA q for this purpose?
can anyone tell me about my this problem
18 Nov 2019
Hello Waheed, You can give Causticum- 1 dose to your mother. As she is aged, we recommend you to visit a homeopath near you and ask for Causticum medicine and the dosage.

You can give her Damiana tea - 1 cup daily for 5-7 days. Please look for the side effects of Damiana herb on this page and give her only after that.

For better results, it is suggested to visit a homeopath near you.

Dear Waheed Follow the following protocol for effective treatment of Premature Ejaculation. 1. Ashwagandha: Take 1 teaspoon of Ashwagandha powder in the morning with warm milk. Take it for a month. 2. Take Asparagus daily. Add it to your diet. 3. Take the Mucuna Pruriens capsule. Take 1 capsule daily for 15 days. 4. Take Crocus Sativa- mother tincture ( general name- Saffron). Take 10 drops in half a glass of water daily. Or have few Saffron threads in a glass of milk.
This will improve the quantity and quality of sperms. Take it for a week. 5. Take 3-4 Damiana leaves and make an infusion. Consume it every day for a week. Write back in the forum for further assistance.
