One of the most common male diseases is prostatitis. With the development of this disease, an inflammatory process occurs in the area of the prostate gland in men. Since this disease is quite common, you should familiarize yourself with the prostatitis treatment regimen. This will depend on various factors. In particular, the treatment regimen for prostatitis should be based on the type of disease, as well as the causes that led to the appearance of the inflammatory process.
Varieties of prostatitis
The chronic form of prostatitis develops in a patient after the penetration of microorganisms into the prostate, but there are other causes of this disease. Quite often, age changes in men, as well as congestion in the prostate gland lead to this pathology. Even after carefully following the prostatitis treatment regimen, a recurrence of the disease can be observed, which in most cases is caused by the following factors:
- sedentary way of life;
- weakened immune system;
- transferred sexually transmitted infections;
- constant stress;
- improper diet and diet;
- prostate injury;
If the acute form of the disease is not treated in time, then it becomes chronic. In parallel, chronic prostatitis is very difficult to determine in a timely manner, since in most cases it is asymptomatic, that is, the inflammatory process of the prostate is not accompanied by any signs. Both chronic and acute can be a bacterial type of prostatitis. Bacterial prostatitis can be formed due to the presence of various microorganisms, mainly enterococci, Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
With such a disease, a person has signs characteristic of an acute form of prostatitis. However, the correct diagnosis is established by a specialist only after a thorough laboratory examination. You should also pay attention to the fact that the bacterial form of prostatitis in most cases occurs in men over the age of 20.
Various factors can contribute to the development of the disease, among which the most common should be highlighted:
- weakened immune system;
- reduced physical activity;
- frequent hypothermia;
- bad habits, such as smoking or drinking alcohol.
This pathology can also be caused by the penetration of pathogens into the tissues of the prostate gland, which occurs in the presence of infection or after surgical intervention.
The bacterial subtype of acute prostatitis has many different symptoms, among which there is often a local inflammatory syndrome, as well as a general inflammatory syndrome. In chronic bacterial prostatitis, the signs of the disease are less pronounced, but with exacerbation they begin to manifest. Chronic prostatitis is not accompanied by such severe symptoms. The prostatitis treatment regimen includes following all the recommendations prescribed by the patient's doctor. The main drugs needed for such treatment are antibiotics. As a rule, the doctor prescribes their use for 2 weeks. Speaking about the treatment regimen for chronic prostatitis, it should also be noted that a specialist can prescribe macrolides, fluoroquinolones and penicillins.
To eliminate the pain syndrome, drugs with anti-inflammatory properties are prescribed, which differ in this non-steroidal composition.
We continue to look at the treatment regimen for bacterial prostatitis. If the patient has such a symptom as a violation during urination, then he should take adrenergic blockers. Considering the scheme of treatment of chronic prostatitis, it should be noted that quite often the specialist prescribes antidepressants to a man, since patients with this disease experience insomnia.
a stagnant subspecies
The stagnant subtype of prostatitis is also often called non-infectious. This is the most common type of this disease. It is not the infection that contributes to its development, but a stagnant process localized directly in the prostate gland. If during the development of this disease, a treatment regimen for prostatitis in men is not developed in time, then it can develop into an abacterial form. However, at an early stage, this pathology is insidious, as it is very difficult to detect.
What is the treatment regimen for prostatitis in men of this type? First of all, it is necessary to eliminate the inflammatory process, as well as to remove congestion in the prostate and pelvic area. Treatment should be comprehensive. An effective prostatitis treatment regimen includes the following medications and procedures:
- Medicines aimed at combating the chronic form of prostatitis, which should include drugs with anti-inflammatory and antibacterial effects.
- Medicines aimed at relaxing the muscles of the internal organs.
- Prostate massage.
- Physiotherapy procedures.
- Recipes of traditional medicine.
In addition, a man should pay a lot of attention to sports, since physical activity is considered an important stage in therapy. It is best to use running or cycling for these purposes. And now it is worth getting acquainted in more detail with various methods of therapy, including the use of the most effective drugs for the treatment of prostatitis.
The scheme of treatment of the disease
Treatment methods for chronic prostatitis include not only the use of drugs, but also various procedures, such as massage, physiotherapy and compliance with prophylaxis. You should become more familiar with the treatment regimen of prostatitis in men with drugs and other procedures.
Speaking about the features of the treatment of prostatitis, in the first place it is necessary to emphasize the massage. If this procedure is done correctly, it will be very beneficial for the prostate. There are a number of positive properties that massage has. They should include the following:
- Improved tissue permeability.
- The liberation of the prostate gland from various pathogenic bacteria that accumulate in it.
- Normalization of blood circulation in the prostate.
- Eliminate congestion.
First of all, it is worth noting that the massage is prescribed exclusively by a specialist who also conducts it. Otherwise, this procedure can only worsen the patient's condition. It is strictly forbidden to massage yourself at home, as this can cause irreversible health consequences. It should be borne in mind that this procedure has a number of contraindications. For example, massage is contraindicated for those people who have cracks in the anus.
Each patient's organism is individual, therefore, the treatment regimen for prostatitis with antibiotics and other drugs should be chosen only by a specialist who takes into account the patient's general condition, laboratory data and the stage of disease progression.
Antibacterial drugs are prescribed by specialists for infectious type of prostatitis. Fluoroquinolones are the most effective drugs, especially in the fight against chronic bacterial prostatitis.
A subgroup of tetracyclines has recently been practically not used to treat prostatitis, as it has many side effects. Exceptionally, the doctor may prescribe a drug that has the best level of tolerability.
In case of prostatitis, the acute treatment regimen should be selected by a doctor, so in no case should you resort to self-treatment to avoid side effects.
For intramuscular injection, drugs from the subgroup of cephalosporins can be prescribed.
Macrolides are prescribed less often than other drugs, because there is no clinical evidence for the expediency of their use in all forms of disease such as prostatitis. In most cases, doctors prescribe them to fight individual bacteria, such as chlamydia or mycoplasma.
The treatment scheme for prostatitis should also be drawn up by a doctor who will take into account the characteristics of the body, as well as the results of tests and examinations.
Recipes from traditional medicine
If we consider the non-traditional methods of treating prostatitis, we should also mention various effective folk recipes. If you choose the right means, then with their help you can get rid of the unpleasant symptoms of the disease. However, it is worth paying attention to the fact that such treatment should be complex, carried out together with taking medication.
Particular attention should be paid to plants that have an anti-inflammatory effect. For example, parsley seeds help to cope with such a disease? such as prostatitis. This ingredient not only eliminates the inflammatory process, but also regenerates damaged tissues, while restoring sexual functions.
To prepare the medicine, you need to take two tablespoons of parsley seeds, pour them with a glass of boiling water. But before that, the seeds must be carefully crushed, for which you can use a coffee grinder. Then the container is placed on the stove over low heat and boiled for a quarter of an hour. The folk remedy is taken cold, one spoonful five times a day.
Another effective folk remedy for prostatitis involves the use of hazel. For its preparation, you can use both the bark and the leaves of the plant. However, it is worth paying attention to the fact that these parts cannot be mixed with each other, since the crust needs to be cooked much longer. To prepare the medicine, you need one tablespoon of this plant. The raw materials should be poured with boiling water, cover the container with a lid, let it boil for about 30 minutes. Then strain it lightly and take the finished infusion 50 g before meals 4 times a day. The duration of such therapy is at least 15 days.
To combat chronic prostatitis, you can use a tincture prepared on the basis of aspen bark. To prepare this tincture, you need to take 100 g of raw materials collected in the spring, dried in the oven. After that, the bark is crushed to a powder state, after which the powder must be poured into a glass container, pour a glass of vodka. The container is closed with a lid and placed in a dark place for 15 days. After that, the drug should be filtered and 20 drops should be consumed 3 times a day. If the drops have an unpleasant taste, they can be diluted with a small amount of plain water. This treatment should last for 2 months.
Pumpkin seeds can be used as an additional therapy. The fact is that the composition of this product contains zinc, which is simply necessary for the male body. In addition, experts recommend the use of pumpkin seeds for men for the prevention of prostate diseases. To do this, it is recommended to eat about 30 pieces of peeled raw pumpkin seeds every day.
An alternative to traditional medicine is apitherapy, which involves treatment with bees. The treatment scheme for prostatitis with bees includes a treatment session, which consists in the application of these insects with tweezers for bites at certain points of the patient's body. When the bee stings the patient, the sting must remain in the body for another 15 minutes, so that the poison is completely pumped into the body.
Sessions start with two insects at a time, gradually increasing their number to 40. The amount in this case will depend on the individual reaction of the body to apitoxin.
In total, there are two schemes for this unusual treatment. A specialist will choose a specific one, taking into account the health characteristics of his patient. The first scheme is that the bees sting the foreskin but not the glans. This is believed to be the shortest route for bee venom to reach the prostate directly. The stinger should remain in the foreskin for 10 minutes, after which the bite site should be treated with alcohol. Such treatment begins with the use of 3-5 insects, gradually increasing their number to 40. Apitoxin penetrates the prostate gland, passing through the cavernous bodies. During this, blood flow and blood supply improve, swelling and congestion subside, and the infection is cleared. This scheme of therapy assumes accuracy in neglected forms that require surgical intervention.
The second option is acupuncture. In this case, the bees are placed on different points of the body. The treatment regimen is divided by days:
- On the first day, one bite is needed between the index finger and thumb of the right hand.
- On the second day, two bee stings are required between the index finger and thumb of the left hand.
- On the third day, three bee stings are required on the right elbow.
- On the fourth day, 4 insect bites are required in the left elbow.
- On the fifth day, 5 bee stings are required in the solar plexus.
- On the sixth day - 6 insect bites in the groin area.
- In the seventh, 7 bee stings will be needed in the region of the coccyx.
- On the eighth day there should be 8 bee stings in the left calf muscle on the inside.
- On the ninth day, 9 bee stings are needed in the right calf muscle, also from the inside.
- On the tenth day, 10 insect bites are needed in the Achilles tendon of the left leg.
- On the eleventh day, 11 bee stings will be required on the Achilles tendon of the right leg.
Then it is necessary to repeat the whole sequence, but in descending order, so that all points receive a different number of bites.
In conclusion, it should be noted that the treatment of prostatitis should be carried out comprehensively, including not only the use of antibiotics, but also the use of folk remedies, massages. In this case, the therapy is prescribed by a specialist who is repulsed by the individual characteristics of the patient's body.
