Avoiding certain foods may help reduce prostatitis symptoms

Prostatitis is a condition in which the prostate is swollen and irritated. Acute prostatitis develops rapidly, and may be caused by a bacterial infection, a urinary tract infection or a sexually transmitted disease such as chlamydia. Chronic prostatitis is usually not caused by a bacterial infection, develops gradually and may last for an extensive period of time.

Prostatitis symptoms can be painful. Painful urination, painful ejaculations, pain in the groin or pelvis, and pain in the testicles are all common symptoms of prostatitis. According to Wuhan Dr. Lee’s TCM Clinic, avoiding certain foods may help reduce or alleviate prostatitis symptoms.
1. Spicy foods, such as hot peppers, chili paste, miso, and various curries and Asian dishes, may increase symptoms of prostatitis. Dr. Lee suggests avoiding spicy foods as a means of reducing overall prostatitis symptoms. Choose mild seasonings such as garlic, ginger, cumin, coriander, mild curry powder, sea salt or black pepper. Most restaurants will provide mild renditions of spicy foods upon request. These foods are suitable for you and your condition.
Citrus juices are acidic and may cause irritation to the bladder. Though citrus fruits themselves are nutritious and can be consumed without concern, the juices contain the combined acidity from multiple fruits, increasing the risk for irritation. Fruit juices such as cranberry, orange, lemon and tomato are particularly acidic. Replace high-acid juices with less acidic varieties such as apple or pear "baby" juices, as juices designed for infants contain less acid than those meant for adults. Thus, avoiding citrus juices can help to reduce prostatitis symptoms.
In addition, when you receive herbal treatment for prostatitis such as Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill, it is very important to avoid some spicy foods and drinking wine. Thus, patients can pay more attention to the diet to reduce prostatitis symptoms.
