Prostatitis is a common disease characterized by a large variety of therapeutic methods. In other words, there is no single treatment regimen that is equally effective for different forms of this pathology.
The same medicine for different categories of patients can be very productive and completely useless. However, doctors agree: treating prostatitis at home is one of the mandatory phases of a comprehensive program to restore male health. So let’s get acquainted with the most popular methods and treat insidious prostatitis at home!
Can I be treated at home?
It is no secret that a person applies for qualified help only when all folk remedies have been tried at home. This approach is completely wrong - it is worth seeking the help of specialists immediately after the detection of unpleasant symptoms (discomfort in the groin area, frequent painful urination, weakening of the erection). And the appointment of a doctor can then be combined with home treatment. Moreover, there are many time-tested ways to eliminate this disease. Remember: amateur performance on such an important issue as your well-being is forbidden and "grandma" methods should be supplemented with medication therapy prescribed by a professional.
Summarizing all the above, we can emphasize: it is possible to treat chronic prostatitis at home. But forgetting about the existence of modern medical developments aimed at preserving men's health is still not worth it.
Simple but powerful recipes
When the question arises how to treat prostatitis at home, they recall the simplest thing - pumpkin seeds. The healing properties of pumpkin seeds are legendary. Ancient healers actively used them to treat all forms of prostatitis. The fact is that this product contains a large amount of zinc - an element that should be present in the daily menu of men, regardless of age. Just 30 pumpkin seeds daily (at the same time before meals) in the treatment of prostatitis - and a positive result will not be long in coming. Even an advanced chronic process heals in this way.
It is possible to treat the disease at home using the same starting material, but in a different way. You need to peel half a kilo of pumpkin seeds, pass them through a meat grinder and add 200 grams of honey. Mix the resulting mass and form balls the size of a walnut. You can store the medicine in the refrigerator. Patients with prostate should eat 1-2 such balls every day before meals.
A sweet cooking should be chewed completely. Please note that you do not need to fry the seeds. Just repeat these methods once a year - and chronic prostatitis will not bother you anymore.
Another popular method is chestnut treatment. Take the chestnut shells with needles and cover them with boiling water. Fill the soup for an hour, and then drink it as tea. Also, enemas are done with the resulting solution.
Roasted chestnuts will help remove chronic prostatitis:
- Separate the peel from them, chop and pour boiling water (300 ml). Leave overnight.
- In the morning drain the solution and place in a water bath.
- Pour the remaining 200 ml into a dark bottle.
Take 30 drops 3 times daily before meals. The duration of the course of treatment of prostatitis is 2 months. To completely cure prostatitis, you will need at least 3 courses.
Benefits of fluids
It turns out that chronic prostatitis at home can be cured with more "delicious" methods. For this, juices are used, which are much more pleasant to drink than, for example, a decoction of chestnuts. Although the use of freshly squeezed fluids promotes the release of uric acid, which, without leaking, leads to the development of the disease. For the treatment with juices at home, asparagus, beets, carrots, cucumbers are especially good. Asparagus deserves special praise from men. True, the volume of liquids drunk during the day should be at least half a liter.
You can also treat prostatitis at home with the help of blackberry juice. It should be taken early in the morning, on an empty stomach, 1 tbsp. The course is 10 days. To preserve the beneficial properties of the drink, it is recommended to add a little table vinegar to the juice. Please note: an increase in body temperature is possible. This is completely normal and shows that the treatment is effective.
Prostate massage at home helps to treat even the most advanced forms of the disease in men. The procedure can not be called pleasant, but the high efficiency of the therapeutic effect makes you forget about the discomfort and tune in to a positive mood.
So what explains the positive effect? Why is home massage almost positioned as a mandatory manipulation leading to healing? Let us understand. Massage helps not only to get rid of bacterial (chronic) prostatitis, but also to safely eliminate other forms (viral, mixed, gonorrhea). Massage massage:
- normalizes blood circulation in the prostate gland;
- improves prostate muscle tone;
- ensures the correct flow of secretion;
- increases the effectiveness of treating men with antibiotics and other antibacterial drugs.
Unknowingly, however, home massage can be harmful. In particular, it is naive to believe that this procedure is performed independently, without the help of a urologist or andrologist. The massage should be performed exclusively by a licensed specialist. The only thing: in a home environment, for most, it is much easier to decide on this than in a public or private medical institution.
Prostate massage is one of the most used treatments for inflammation.
Like any other medical manipulation, prostate massage at home has a number of contraindications. For example, massage will not give results in connection with acute bacterial prostatitis, chronic prostatitis with signs of malignant lesions, in the presence of cysts and stones in the prostate gland.
In terms of indications, massage is prescribed for asymptomatic prostatitis, chronic pelvic pain syndrome, sexual dysfunctions and lack of response to medication treatment. Also, massage is needed to obtain prostate secretions for research purposes.
Apparatus for the treatment of prostatitis
To save men from tedious trips to the clinic and treat prostatitis at home, special equipment will allow you.
These devices operate on different principles and are therefore classified as follows:
- Vibration effect. Thanks to microvibration, overload in the prostate gland is eliminated, muscle tone is increased and the symptoms of urinary tract irritation are alleviated.
- Electrical impact. Purpose of stimulating tissue with modulated currents through rectal or cutaneous electrodes.
- Magnetic impact. The magnetic device has a decongestant, anti-inflammatory and analgesic effect.
- Laser exposure. Such devices are treated with infrared radiation.
It is impossible not to mention the devices themselves. In the modern market of medical devices, there is a large number of devices for physiotherapy procedures at home.
Medication treatment is another mandatory item in the treatment of prostatitis. It is quite understandable that medical methods are more important than ever. Even the most innovative developments and massages can not compete with the achievements of pharmacology. To get rid of tuberculous, gonorrheal prostatitis, as well as prostatitis caused by ureaplasmas and mycoplasmas, only antibiotics allow.
Prostatitis requires a carefully thought-out prescription regimen. Sometimes taking home medicine is delayed for several months. It all depends on the form and severity of the process. So chronic prostatitis in men is much more difficult to cure than acute. In any case, medication should be prescribed by a physician, taking into account the individual characteristics of the organism.
You can not take any medicine without consulting a specialist, otherwise the situation will only get worse. As you can see, prostatitis can be treated at home, the main thing is not to neglect the advice of professionals and follow the recommendations of the attending physician.
