Symptoms and diagnosis of prostatitis
The axiom does not require proof that in order to cure a disease, you must first correctly diagnose it and determine the causes of its occurrence.
Prostatitis is classified in medical reference books as an inflammatory process that affects the prostate. Inflammation is caused by fungi, viruses or bacteria that have entered the prostate. The prostate can also become inflamed through prolonged stagnation of blood in the blood vessels of the pelvis and scrotum.Factors that increase the risk of prostatitis include a sedentary lifestyle, smoking, abstinence and, paradoxically, frequent use of the sauna. All these factors change the blood circulation in the pelvic area, objectively contributing to the stagnation of the lymph in it. As a result, immunity is reduced and the body becomes more susceptible to infection by viruses or bacteria.
There are acute and chronic forms of prostatitis. The signs of the onset of prostate inflammation are:
- the appearance of discomfort in the groin, testicles or penis.
- pain in the groin or perineum?
- pain when urinating and bowel movements.
- increased body temperature accompanied by chills.
- reduced erection.
If you do not pay attention to these symptoms and do not see a doctor in time, acute prostatitis turns into chronic and in rare cases, an inflammatory process that has started in the prostate can cause general blood poisoning.
So, when the first symptoms of the disease appear, you can not hesitate to visit the doctor. We must never forget that prostatitis, which has gone from acute to chronic, significantly reduces not only a man's sexual activity, but also the sexual sensations he experiences.
The modern development of medicine makes it possible to diagnose prostatitis at the beginning of the inflammatory process. This is facilitated mainly by the intense, inherent only in this disease, the discreet symptoms.
For a correct diagnosis, the doctor may refer the patient for an ultrasound or tomography. In fact, in most cases, a qualitative analysis of the number of white blood cells in the urine is enough to accurately diagnose prostate inflammation. Another thing is that to determine the cause of the inflammatory process, a comprehensive study may be needed, in which even the results of ultrasound and tomography will be few. But the decision for such a study is made only by a doctor.
Some aspects of treatment
Today in pharmacies you can find many medicines for the treatment of prostatitis. These are usually products of well-known brands and are quite expensive. The realities of today's medicine are such that, due to the aggressive publicity of such drugs, doctors usually prescribe something that is more expensive.Prostatitis is a very unpleasant disease for men, but it is not an immediate threat to the patient's life. This is why leading pharmaceutical companies have long commercialized its treatment, making significant profits from the sale of their drugs. However, treating prostatitis is one of those rare cases in which you can use the available means effectively. The acute form and any kind of complications of the disease are treated only in a hospital and here you must follow the doctor's prescriptions. But with the early stages of prostatitis and its chronic form, things are not so simple.
Therefore, after learning the diagnosis from the doctor and receiving from him a sick leave with the prescription of outpatient treatment and a prescription with the names of expensive drugs, you do not need to rush to buy them. With a rich selection of traditional remedies for prostatitis, treating this disease will cost you a cheaper order of magnitude.Almost all pharmacological drugs are aimed only at the treatment of prostatitis, while many folk remedies can not only effectively treat the disease, especially in its early stages, but it is also an excellent prophylactic agent. In other words, if you regularly take these medications to prevent prostatitis, you will not need any treatment for it.
In addition, when choosing between modern pharmacological preparations and folk remedies, you should keep in mind that factory preparations contain a large number of artificial chemicals that can cause serious allergies.
The better the treatment of the disease
For the treatment of prostatitis, traditional healers usually recommend:
- pumpkin seeds?
- hazelnut and rind?
- aspen bark;
- asparagus juice?
- black elderberry berries?
- honey candles.
Pumpkin seeds have long been used by healers and therapists to treat male diseases and enhance activity. In terms of combining efficacy and cost of treatment, this is one of the best options. There is a lot of zinc in pumpkin seeds - a trace element, in the absence of which in the male body, the treatment of prostatitis will be ineffective. The result is given only from raw seeds, from dried, and even more from fried, it will make little sense.
Aspen bark, infused with vodka, also helps effectively treat prostatitis. However, not all bark is suitable for treatment, but it is harvested in early spring, before the buds of the trees and with a thickness of 3 to 5 mm. You can also treat prostatitis with hazelnuts. Thin hazelnut branches with blooming leaves are brewed and drunk instead of tea for a quarter of a glass 4 times a day. You can also make bare twigs, but you should only boil them twice as long. 2-4 weeks of such tea - and the symptoms of the disease will stop bothering you. But to eliminate the cause of inflammation, it is better to alternate it with other methods of treatment.Prostatitis is also treated well with chestnut infusion. Although the course of such treatment lasts up to six months, it has virtually no contraindications, so even the elderly can use it safely. The main advantages of this method are that with the help of chestnut tincture it is possible not only to relieve discomfort, but also to eliminate the cause of inflammation of the prostate. You can prepare the tincture yourself in the kitchen of your home. The full course of treatment includes 3 courses lasting 1 month, but between courses there should be 2 breaks, also 1 month each. In order to treat prostatitis as effectively as possible, other treatments can even be used during monthly breaks.
Effective treatment of prostatitis is also provided by bee products: honey and propolis, which have long been known for their anti-inflammatory properties. They are not used in their pure form for treatment, but as ingredients of effective drugs, these products are irreplaceable.
Simple folk recipes
To prevent prostate inflammation, it is enough for a man to eat 30 pieces of raw pumpkin seeds every day. To treat prostatitis with seeds, you should play a little, but the result is worth it. First you have to peel 0. 5 kg of pumpkin seeds and kill them in a blender or grind them in a meat grinder. Then add a glass (200 g) of honey to this mass and mix well.
From the resulting mixture, walnut-sized balls are formed (a little more is possible - there will be no damage). It is imperative to store these gaps in the refrigerator, but keep in mind that they can not be used cold. Therefore, they must be removed from the refrigerator in advance so that their temperature is close to room temperature.
Take 1-2 tablespoons in the morning, half an hour before meals. The balls should not be swallowed, but dissolved slowly, stretching the pleasure for 2-3 minutes. The treatment can not be stopped, the course should last until all the formed balls are finished. Such a course per year is usually enough to put a reliable barrier to prostatitis. But if this recipe did not help, then you should use other means - you should not abuse them.
100 grams of dried lime peel and roasted oven pour a glass of vodka, close with a tight lid and let it infuse for 2 weeks in a dark place. Then drain the infusion, when taken in a quarter glass of water, add 20 drops of tincture and drink before meals. You should take it 3 times a day, the course of treatment is designed for 2 months.The chestnuts are peeled from the brown peel and then the peel is crushed into small pieces. Then the crushed chestnut peel is poured into hot and 600 ml of boiling water is poured. After 12 hours, the tincture from the heat is placed in a water bath, evaporated until its volume is reduced to 200 ml. filtered through 3-4 layers of gauze and sent to the refrigerator. You should use it 3 times a day, 30 drops before meals. 40 g of propolis are evaporated in 200 ml of medical alcohol. This propolis is then mixed with cocoa bean butter at a rate of: 0. 1 g propolis 2 g butter. Then 30 suppositories are formed from this mixture and 1 suppository is inserted into the rectum every night before going to bed. When the candles are exhausted, take a break of 1-1, 5 months and repeat the course of treatment.
Diet and exercise
Treatment of prostatitis does not require a special diet, but will be much more effective if certain dietary rules are followed during treatment. It is necessary to exclude fish and meat dishes from the menu during treatment, as well as hot spices and condiments: pepper, garlic, horseradish, onions, radishes and the like. It is also not recommended to abuse foods such as whole milk, white cabbage and all types of legumes during treatment, as they cause increased gas formation in the intestines.
All you need to follow strictly during treatment is to consume as many different fluids as possible. It is desirable that they also have a diuretic effect, as the treatment of prostatitis requires maximum washing of the urinary system.
Simple exercises will help increase the effectiveness of the treatment. In the morning, getting up after sleep, you should massage the perineum for 5 minutes. Then tighten and relax the muscles several times, simulating urination. These exercises help prevent stagnation in the prostate.
