Useful Ayurvedic Supplements:
A very useful yogic exercise in Ashwini mudra (named after a horse’s bottom!). You can do this sitting or standing in any comfortable position as you inhale, you draw your anus upwards in a strong contraction and as you exhale you relax the anus. Do this 10-15 times up to three times a day. All squatting postures will also assist the function of contraction-relaxation in the lower pelvic area, which helps to increase circulation and to reduce the inevitable venous congestion that occurs after the prostate has been inflamed for a long time.
