Help with my prostatitis‏

Hello Dr. Lee, I am 57 years old and have bacterial prostatitis for six years. I have taken many antibiotics for several months at a time. The antibiotics make me better. Then after the antibiotics, maybe two weeks later, I get sick again with the prostatitis. My doctor finds no bacteria in my urine. When I get prostatitis I have problem urinating, feel sick and blood pressure goes up. Do you think your herbal medicines will cure me. I have also been receiving acupuncture treatment from my friend here. I am in United States. Thank you for your help and advice.

Doctor
It is obvious that your prostatitis belongs to chronic nonbacterial prostatitis. These options can help you relieve your symptoms:

. Dietary therapy

A closed mouth catches no flies, this an old Chinese saying, shows the importance of healthy eating. There are many dietary taboos for prostatitis patients. Spicy foods, caffeine, alcoholic beverages, tea and red meats should be avoided in prostatitis patients tables. Then, which kind of food can they have during life? Firstly, fruits and vegetables with deep bright color are good for prostatitis patients, the key point is taking five different fruits and vegetables once a day. Secondly, fish, skinless poultry, beans, and eggs are healthier sources of protein for prostatitis patients. Shrimp, beef, chicken, port should be limited. Thirdly, choose healthful fats, such as olive oil, nuts (almonds, walnuts, pecans), and avocados. Limit saturated fats from dairy and other animal products. Avoid partially hydrogenated fats (trans fats), which are in many fast foods and packaged foods.

 . Warm siting bath

A warm sitting bath can speed up the blood circulation of the prostate gland, this therapy is easy to get at home. The key point is using clean and sterile tub so that no bacteria will enter into the body. Besides, choose boiling herbal medicine water instead of normal hot water is a wise option such as hibiscus that may help improve blood circulation, including ginkgo biloba, ginger, and bilberry.

 

. Herbal medicine treatment

Comparing with antibiotics and painkillers, herbal medicine has its particular advantages in curing diseases, including prostatitis. For example, Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill, a herbal medicine specializes in male's urology and reproductive system diseases, is made of more than fifty kinds of herbs, each of them has its own duty in curing this disease, and works well together. This pill has the ability in repairing broken prostate position and rebuilding the self-immune system in the prostate gland so that bacteria are not able to enter into the prostate again.
