Do you suffer from prostatitis, yet believe that there is a more natural and, eventually, more budget friendly way to resolve your condition than by stuffing with antibiotics or other kinds of drugs? Here are some suggestions for alternative treatment of prostatitis.Treat prostatitis the alternative way
Regular flushing of the urinary system by urination reduces the time that bacteria get to multiply and start an infection, thus reducing the chance that an infection will develop, or, if it has already started, to keep it at bay. It is therefore advised to drink plenty of water every day. If you already suffer from prostatitis, there are herbs that have significant medicinal value, such as garlic, goldenseal and Echinacea, which will help to fight infection and soothe the inflammation. Also, a boost to your system's defence ability by means of daily intake of vitamin and mineral supplements is recommended. Such supplements should contain antioxidants, vitamins A, C and E, beta carotene, and mineral Selenium.
Zinc should be taken in form of zinc picolinate, and recommended doses are 60 mg if there is an ongoing infection with noticeable and 30 mg in case that prevention measures are taken. If you do not suffer from acute infection or prostate inflammation, it is a good idea to relax and loosen the urinary tract, thus increasing its ability to flush bacteria, by taking a hot bath followed by a cold soak. You can also try hot and cold packs. These are applied between the anus and the testicles, that is the area in which prostate is located.
A stressed system performs poorly. So will your body. Try to reduce stress and relax as often as possible. This will boost your body's ability to fight infections such as prostatitis. Also, adjust your menu, switch to healthy foods and eat lightly. Some foods have properties that help in fight against prostatitis. For example, watermelon fruit contains plenty of water and its seeds have a diuretic effect, so eating watermelon is a tasty way to flush the urinary system. Couch grass and pipsissewa also have diuretic properties, and pipissewa also has antibacterial properties. Also, you should do Kegel exercises regularly, to keep the prostate toned and thus less prone to prostatitis.
Some herbs that help
Leaves of bookoo or buku plant, ingested as tea, help to produce urine and work as an antiseptic, and are used to treat acute and chronic prostatitis. Chamomile flowers reduce inflammation, spasms and pains related to prostatitis and also have antiseptic properties. Chamomile is also taken as tea. Due to its acidity, cranberry juice makes urine too acidic for bacteria. Sufficient dose of cranberry juice is one pint per day. Another (technically) herbal product is bee pollen. It is a superb supplement that, among other things, contains all water-soluble vitamins.
