chronic prostatitis, a common male disease, is characterized by pelvic or perineal pain lasting longer than 3 months, as the key symptom. Symptoms may wax and wane. Pain can range from mild to sharp. Pain may radiate to the back and rectum, making sitting uncomfortable. Pain can be present in the perineum, testicles, tip of penis, pubic or bladder area. Dysuria, arthralgia, myalgia, unexplained fatigue, abdominal pain, constant burning pain in the penis, and frequency may all be present. Post-ejaculatory pain, mediated by nerves and muscles, is a hallmark of the condition. Some patients report low libido, sexual dysfunction and erectile difficulties.
This disease is very difficult to cure and often time-consuming. Pain and chronic pelvic discomfort are grounded in a patient’s lifestyle, diet, nutrition, and other factors that lie outside the prostate that may contribute to chronic tension. Prostatitis treatment
are individualized and include several natural and alternative therapies.
1. Make changes in what you eat and drink when you're suffering from prostatitis or any urinary tract infection. At the first sign of infection, switch to a light diet that emphasizes whole grains, fresh fruits, steamed vegetables and herbal teas.
2. Increase your liquid intake to help flush out bacteria.
3. Drink cranberry juice, which has properties that dislodge bacteria that might otherwise cling to the wall of the bladder and allow the infection to spread from the bladder to the prostate or migrate from the prostate back to the bladder.
4. Take flower pollen extract. It may increases the body's production of interferon and also stimulates the thymus gland, both of which play a key role in fighting off infection.
5. Follow a daily regimen of vitamin and mineral supplements, which include antioxidants, vitamins A, C and E, beta-carotene and selenium. Zinc supplements should be paid much attention. It works by reducing the size of enlarged prostate while helping immune system in resisting bacterial infection related with prostatitis. It is recommended to increase zinc intake by eating pumpkin seeds, shellfish and nutritional yeast or taking a daily zinc supplement of 50 to 100mg.
6. Avoid alcohol, caffeine and spicy foods such as hot peppers, chili, pickles and salsa, which can make the problems worse.
7. Seek to avoid stress and anxiety by performing stress management techniques such as relaxing, breathing deeply and eliminating stressful circumstances.
8. Try Hydrotherapy, or water therapy, which helps increase circulation in the prostate while helping to relax and open the urinary tract. Sitting in a tub full of the hottest water you can tolerate for 15 to 30 minutes, and cold soaks may also be therapeutic and should be alternated with hot soaks.
9. A prostatic massage can help relax muscles and ease prostate infection symptoms.
10. Use heat therapy. It involves applying local heat via a heating pad or hot-water bottle to the perineal area to relieve pain
11. Do kegel exercises, which involve repeatedly contracting and relaxing the muscles that form part of the pelvic floor.
12. Myofascial release is helpful for treating CP/CPPS symptoms that are associated with stress and tension of the pelvic floor muscles.
13.Get acupuncture. Acupuncture works by stimulating the nerve cell receptors of the affected area, lessening the pain caused by chronic prostatitis.
14.Use medicinal herbs with antibiotic and anti-inflammatory properties such as Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill
, which will not cause drug resistance and can reach a higher drug concentration when it enters the focus.
