Hi, glad to help you. Diet is very important when you suffer from prostatitis. Usually, you can have cereals like rice, wheat, corn, barley, oat, rye, millet, buckwheat, coix related food and so on.  Vegetables like cabbage, cucumber, celery, lotus root, cauliflower, broccoli, lettuce, tomato, potato, mushroom, green beans, pumpkin, eggplant, wax gourd and so on are OK to eat. All beans are OK to eat, except soybean or related foods.

All eggs are OK to eat, including the eggs from chicken, but the chicken is not recommended.  All meat from pigs is OK. But better not smoked, fried or grilled. Fruits like kiwi fruit, apple, pear, peach, watermelon, grape, banana, pineapple, strawberry, cherry, orange, pawpaw, coconut, mango and so on are OK to eat. And all nuts are OK to eat. All dairy products are not recommended. But plant milk like coconut milk and almond milk and so on is OK. Seafood are not recommended.

Try to avoid caffeinated beverages, alcohol, beef, onions, and hot species during the medication. Curries, turmeric, coriander, chilli, cumin, fennel, pepper, and mustard are not recommended, because they are irritating and may hinder the progress of improvement. It is OK for you to take ketchup, peanut butter and other seasoning which are not spicy or hot.  What do you think?
