There is a lot of controversy about the best prostatitis cures: some experts believe in the efficacy of conventional prostatitis cure, others praise natural cures for prostatitis.
However, they all agree that prostatitis is a very common disease which can change the quality of your life. Generally speaking, the success measures of variable cures differ markedly from person to person.
I - Generally, there are two important measures you should keep in mind when seeking for cures of prostatitis:
Firstly, always keep yourself warm. Warmth can significantly promote the relaxation of muscles surrounding your prostate as well as seminal tract.
This can widen the outlet of prostate gland and ejaculatory ducts thus enhancing the drainage of inflammatory secretions, decreasing the edema, and promoting prostatic tissue oxygenation.
Sitz baths is one home natural remedy for prostatitis you can try yourself.
Secondly, try to have a normal regular sexual activity; as ejaculation is the only effective natural way to wash the seminal tract, this is formed of seminal vesicles, prostate, and epididymitis. Avoiding sex will cause your condition to be worse.
These are indicated for patients suffering from bacterial prostatitis (either acute or chronic). Your urologists will recommend an antibiotic course of 21 days.
But in some cases, you might extend to take antibiotics up to 60 or 90 days, depending on the persistence of prostatitis symptoms.
Actually, there are three main groups of medications used for curing prostatitis, including:
The last generations of quinolones are mostly prescribed, especially those with positive activity towards Chlamydia.
Trimetoprim-sulfamethoxazole is another potent antibiotic used nowadays for bacterial prostatitis cure; this drug is well known for its ability to penetrate the inflamed prostatic tissues.
Usually, antibiotic treatment for bacterial prostatitis is combined with anti-inflammatory drugs, those which can effectively reduce pain and swelling, e.g. ketoprofen, diclofenac sodium ….etc.
Alpha-blockers are very effective in relaxing the spasm of bladder neck muscles, thus reducing some of symptoms of prostate problems, for example hesitancy, frequent urination, and weak urinary stream).
Alfuzosine and terazosine are most commonly used drugs of such a group.
It is a well known procedure for prostatitis cure. Its goal is to grid of thick dense secretions of the prostate and to widen the obstructed outlet of seminal ducts.
This treatment should be done cautiously and by an expert to avoid damaging of prostatic tissue and worsening of the inflammation.
Recently, there is a lot of controversy about performing surgery for prostatitis treatment. Some experts see "radical" TURP as treatment of choice for persistent chronic bacterial prostatitis.
But for majority of prostatitis cases (non-bacterial prostatitis and prostatodynia), surgical prostatitis cures are not even a treatment option.
Nowadays, natural cures for prostatitis are widely used all over the world.
Cernilton or bee pollen extract (anti-inflammatory, anti-androgen) has 42% success in treatment of prostatitis; while quercetin or prosta-Q (anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant) introduces 65-82% success rates.
Unfortunately, saw palmetto, stinging nettle, and pygeum africanum have limited effect in treatment of prostatitis.
