Living With Prostatitis

A Natural Approach To Health


Living With Prostatitis

I had a question the other day about prostatitis.

Prostatitis is swelling or infection of the prostate gland.

It often hurts.

The prostate gland sits just below a man’s bladder and makes part of the fluid for semen.

In young men, the prostate is about the size of a walnut.

It usually grows larger as you grow older.

There are several types of prostatitis.

They vary based on how long a man has had the problem and what kind of symptoms he has.

Sometimes prostatitis is caused by bacteria, but often the cause isn’t known.

Symptoms of long-term prostatitis are often mild and start slowly over weeks or months.

They may include:

>An urge to urinate often, but only passing small amounts of urine.

>A burning pain when you urinate.

>A problem starting the urine stream, urinating in waves rather than in a steady stream, urine flow that’s weaker than normal, and dribbling after urinating.

>Waking up at night to urinate often.

>A feeling of not completely emptying your bladder.

>Pain in your lower back, in the area between the testicles and anus, in the lower belly or upper thighs, or above the pubic area.  Pain may be worse during a bowel movement.

>Some pain during or after ejaculation.

>Pain in the tip of your penis.

Symptoms of acute prostatitis are the same, but they start suddenly and are severe.

They may also include a fever and chills.

Some men may have no symptoms.

Prostatitis caused by bacteria is treated with antibiotics and self-care.

If it isn’t caused by bacteria, it usually gets better with home treatment.

To deal with prostatitis it’s beneficial to:

*Drink 6-8 cups of purified water daily hydrates body and brain cells and flushes toxins (whether thirsty or not!).

*Review my post on candida.

*Increase exercise, relaxation techniques.

*Increase fresh, raw fruits and veggies (organic when possible).

*Consider fresh juicing.

*Consume plenty of fresh, raw, unroasted pumpkin seeds.

*Increase fiber intake.

*Ensure good bowel function; avoid constipation.

*Consider a liver and/or colon cleanse.

*Decrease toxic exposures (food and environmental).

*Decrease any and all hydrogenated, trans fats, deep-fried foods, margarine, fast foods, artificial sweeteners.

*Decrease sugar, sweets, white flour products, processed foods.

*Avoid tobacco, alcohol, caffeine, soda pop.

*Understand your medications and possible side effects.

*Maintain a healthy weight.
