Homeopathy Treatment for Prostatitis

Homeopathic Treatment for Prostatitis

Prostatitis is the inflammation of the prostate gland.The prostate is a crucial part of the male reproductive system. It is approximately the size of a walnut and weighs around 15-25 grams. You will find this organ below your urinary bladder and in front of your rectum (part of the intestine). The prostate surrounds a part of the urethra. The urethra is a tube that carries urine from the bladder for excretion through the penis.

The prostate gland secretes some fluid into the urethra called prostatic fluid. Prostatic fluid, other fluids from other glands, and sperms from the testicle together form the Semen. Semen is ejaculated from the penile urethra into a female vagina during the male orgasm (climax).

 

As the prostate surrounds the upper portion of the urethra, it can sometimes affect our ability to urinate. The location of the prostate gland is not a problem, but when it gets enlarged (Benign Prostate enlargement) or inflamed (Prostatitis), it can squeeze the urethra and cause difficulty in urination.

Types of Prostatitis

Prostatitis can be an acute condition or chronic. The National Institute of Health provides the following classification of Prostatitis.

  • Acute Bacterial Prostatitis: It is caused due to an infection in the prostate by bacteria, such as Escherichia coli and Klebsiella. It occurs suddenly and may present with flu-like symptoms. It is less common but it requires prompt treatment, as severe complications can arise if the infection spreads in the bloodstream (sepsis).
  • Asymptomatic Inflammatory Prostatitis: This condition can be identified accidentally during infertility or prostate cancer treatment. The patient may not have any symptoms but shows the presence of infection-fighting cells (antibodies) in the semen/ Prostatic fluid.
  • Chronic Bacterial Prostatitis: It occurs due to recurrent bacterial infections of the prostate gland. Symptoms are less severe than acute prostatitis. Mild symptoms can be observed between the acute attacks or the patient may be symptom-free. However, it is a little difficult to treat it successfully.
  • Chronic Prostatitis/ Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome/Chronic Nonbacterial Prostatitis: Most cases of prostatitis fall in this category. It can be inflammatory or non-inflammatory depending on the presence or absence of bacteria. The patient may experience the symptoms of prostatitis without any bacterial infection. Symptoms can come and go or remain chronically.
