King Charles III: Yoruba Herbal Remedy for Prostate Enlargement: The Maize Silk Tea



The King of England, King Charles III, was recently diagnosed with cancer, which many believe is caused by an enlarged prostate. According to a Monday announcement by Buckingham Palace Monitored by TheWest Newspaper, the cancer (the specific type was not mentioned) was discovered after the British monarch spent three nights in the hospital for treatment.
The United States’ National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) describes prostate enlargement, medically known as Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia—or simply BPH—as “a condition in men in which the prostate gland is enlarged and not cancerous. Benign prostatic hyperplasia is also called benign prostatic hypertrophy or benign prostatic obstruction.”
The Institute explains that “the prostate goes through two main growth periods as a man ages. The first occurs early in puberty when the prostate doubles in size. The second phase of growth begins around age 25 and continues during most of a man’s life. Benign prostatic hyperplasia often occurs with the second growth phase.”
The World Health Organization states that Prostate Cancer is the fourth most common cancer in the world. It accounts for 7.3% with an estimated population of 1.5 million cases worldwide. Lung cancer is the most commonly occurring cancer worldwide with 2.5 million new cases, accounting for 12.4% of the total new cases. Female breast cancer ranks second (2.3 million cases, 11.6%), followed by colorectal cancer (1.9 million cases, 9.6%), prostate cancer, and stomach cancer ranking fourth and fifth, respectively.
MayoClinic lists the following as symptoms of an enlarged prostate in men: Frequent or urgent need to urinate, also called urination, peeing more often at night, trouble starting to urinate, weak urine stream, or a stream that stops and starts, dribbling at the end of urination, and not being able to fully empty the bladder. Less common symptoms include urinary tract infection, not being able to urinate, and blood in the urine.

Tom Bower, an expert on British Royalty, suggested on live TV that King Charles III may opt for herbal treatment (popularly called Agbo in Southwest Nigeria) instead of orthodox chemotherapy. Bower said, “He would not be one for chemotherapy. He’s always argued against it. He’s a great believer in natural herbs and potions and things like that.
“So my guess is that at the moment he’s taking advice from a man called Michael Dixon, who he’s championed for many years, has headed his own natural alternative medicinal institute discredited by many people.
“The King is a great believer in it. Last night, I was very surprised that people kept saying that he’s going to have chemotherapy or radiation and the rest of it,” he explained.
Here is an age-old Agbo recipe among the Yoruba used in the treatment or management of Prostate Enlargement:
Get the silk of maize. Experts believe that maize silk is a good source of natural antioxidants and diabetic nephropathy inhibitory activities, good for the management of prostate enlargement.
A study jointly conducted by Kai-Jin Wang and Jin-Liang Zhao, published in the Biomedicine & Pharmacotherapy journal, 2019 edition, stated that “oxidative stress plays a critical role in the progression of diabetes mellitus (DM) and its complications.”
So to preapre this, get some handfuls of corn silk and boil in hot water to make a cup of tea. It is beleieved that if you sip this tea from time to time, you will be able to prevent or control enlarged prostate glands.
Note that, although some users of this recipe have claimed some success from its use, there is insufficient evidence to support its effectiveness for other prostate conditions like prostatitis (inflammation) or prostate cancer.
Note to readers: While natural remedies like the one mentioned above are often discussed, it’s crucial to consult with medical experts for personalized advice and treatment plans tailored to individual health needs.
