The men is too tired for living
today, especial for the
successful men, they even haven't time to care for their health.
The prostate is a
subsidiary gland organ in male genitourinary system.It is adjacent
to the Seminal Vesicles, Vas Deferens, urethra, bladder and
rectum, so chronic prostatitis often follows after infections of
other genitourinary organs and prostatitis often comes with
Seminal Vesiculitis. Because urethra is connected to the outside,
bacteria could easily penetrate to the prostate through urethra
and cause infection. Negligence of genital sanitation, indulgences
on sex, stones of genitourinary organs, piles and abscess around
anus could spread the infections to the prostate. Even the
infection of the prostate has been cured in time, there are still
threats of recurrences because its neighbors are not so friendly.
Prostatitis is an inflammation of the prostate gland that is
usually caused by a bacterial infection that has spread from
another part of the body. Prostatitis can develop suddenly as with
acute prostatitis, or gradually build up over an extended period
of time as with chronic prostatitis.
Acute prostatitis develops suddenly and is generally caused by
a bacterial infection of the prostate brought on by e coli,
certain sexually transmitted diseases or sexual contact with an
infected person, a urinary tract infection, urethritis,
epididymitis, urethral instrumentation, trauma, bladder outlet
obstruction, or an infection elsewhere in the body. Acute
prostatitis is more common in men aged 20-35, men with multiple
sex partners and men who engage in high-risk sexual behaviors.
It is normal that bacteria live in penis urethra and the
membranous urethra. Normally, they could also live in the
prostate. A portion of chronic prostatitis is nonbacterial; for
example, Chlamydia, Mycoplasma, virus, yeast or autoimmune
diseases could be one of the causes. If treated by antibiotics,
patients' health will be impaired and it could take a long time
without a permanent cure. Some of the patients develop tiny
calculus in the prostate and couldn't easily be resolved by oral
antibiotics. Blockage of prostate glands by calculus could also
induce the recurrence of infection.
The clinical reasons for bacterial prostatitis are:
1)Bacteria enter the urethra and reach the prostate
2)Blood infection, tooth infection, tonsil infection, upper
respiratory tract infection, skin disease
3)Pathological changes near the prostate (rectum and anus
infection through lymphatic glands)
4)Acute prostatitis to chronic prostatitis
5)Complications from Cystitis or Pyelonephritis
6)Excessive drinking, cold, excessive sex life and harmful sexual
habits, damage in perineum, chronic constipation.
7)Penis urethra blockage and difficult urination.
All of the above could lead to nonbacterial hyperemia of the
prostate and create a perfect environment for the invasion and
propagation of bacteria. The severity of chronic prostatitis depends on immunity of the
body and strength of pathogen. The level of defense of the immune
system significantly determines whether one will get infection,
the severity of infection and the difficulty of treatment.
The common factors on the level of defense are heavy drinking,
frequent masturbation, long distance cycling, siting too long,
excessive fatigue, getting a cold and negative thought.
Different pathogens have different strength on human body. For
example, Staphylococcus epidermis and E. coli are called
conditional pathogens. These pathogens could infection our body
only when the immune system is very weak. Conversely, the
strongest pathogens could infect almost everyone, such as
Chlamydia, Mycoplasma and Gonococcus. The traits of a particular
pathogen, amount of invaded pathogen and the growth of them are
also the factors. Spicy and high-protein food promotes the growth
of pathogen and increases the chance of getting prostate
The majority of chronic prostatitis cases are mixed infection.
Bacterial and nonbacterial prostatitis has an unusual close
relationship and could swap reciprocally, that is exactly the core
problem of treating chronic prostatitis. Effective treatment and
prevention are not possible if one is ambiguous of the
relationship between the two of them.
After eradication of bacteria, effective medicine and therapy
are needed to facilitate the restoration of impaired physiological
functions of the prostate and to build up a protective barrier, so
as to avoid the invasion of foreign pathogens. Patients who are
old, have long medical history, have weak bodies due to long-term
antibiotic usage and have psychological difficulty from multiple
treatments should stick to the recovery therapy.

20 million men of all ages share the symptoms of non-bacterial prostatitis.
While there are several types of prostatitis diagnosed in men, including
bacterial prostatitis (acute and chronic), non-bacterial prostatitis and
prostatodynia account for 95% of all prostatitis diagnoses. Symptoms can
include perineal pain, reduced urine flow and possibly impotence and pain
before, during and after ejaculation.
clinical practice, prostatitis is divided into the chronic type and acute
type, or the inflammatory one and non-inflammatory one, or the specific one
and non-specific one.
the disease name of prostatitis does not exist in traditional Chinese medicine
(TCM), it belongs to the categories of suspended yang-carbuncle, white
turbidity, white evil, fatigue strangury, grease strangury, seminal turbidity,
lumbar pains due to kidney deficient, etc.
Identification and Treatment Determination:
Damp and Heat Inrushing Downward
symptoms: intermittent fevers and chills when occurring first, rapid progress,
frequent micturation, urinary urgency with inhibited voiding, burning
sensation and stinging pains in the urethra, or visible bloody urine,
falling-like distension or pains of the perineum, dry mouth, a bitter taste in
the sticky mouth, constipation, distension and pains in the lower abdomen, red
tongue, yellow and slimy tongue coating, soggy and rapid pulse.
principle: clear heat and excrete damp
Intense Heat and Exuberant Toxin
symptoms: Sudden onset, persistent high fever, vexation, unrest, thirst,
liking drinks, reddening, swelling, heat and pains of the perineum, scanty
urine, obstructed urination, or urine with visible pus and blood, burning
sensation and pains in the urethra, constipation, red tongue, yellowish tongue
coating, rapid and string-like pulse.
principle: move the qi, check pains, quicken blood circulation, transform
Deficiency of the Kidney-Yin
symptoms: The diseases lasts quite a long term without recovering. The patient
is enfeebled due to the chronic course, or he has once indulged in excessive
sexual activities or masturbation. White or sticky excretion from the mouth of
the urethra usually or at the end of the urination. Post-voiding dribble,
aching pains of the loins, soft legs, feverish sensation in the soles and
palms in the afternoon, dizziness, tinnitus, insomnia, profuse dreaming,
seminal emission, premature ejaculation, hypofunction of the sexual ability,
red tongue with few coating, thready and rapid pulse.
The clinical symptoms of the chronic prostatitis has five respects mainly,
Namely urethra symptom, pain or uncomfortable, the sex function slack up,
neurasthenia, amalgamating disease. When have one or two symptoms among them,
you should go to the local hospital to make correlative examination. Prostatitis
patients, when doctor massage prostate, should notice the affected part have
obvious pain or not, because the pain is one of the inflammation symptoms. Need
to learn how to understand the EPS report , EPS report has two main indicators:
1.Lecithin, the normal one should above 75% ( + + +). 2.WBC, the normal one
should be less than 10 / HP, If exceeds more than ten, indicate that there is
inflammation existing. Certainly, the EPS examination for some nonbacterial
prostatitis is normal. Clarify the inflammation is nonbacterial or bacterial,
need to carry on overall microbiolody examination in order to find out pathogen.
Commonly, the pathogen which can cause prostatitis including all kinds of
microorganism, such as Staph.aureus, hemolytic strepto coccus, gonococcus,
pseudomomos areuginosa, C.diphtheriae, colon bacillus, mycoplasm, chlamydiae,
various kinds of virus and fungi, trichomonad, etc. Bacterial prostatitis should
make EPS examination and sensitive drugs test, other pathogenic microorganism
should do the special examination. Besides, B unltrsonic wave examination,
combine with rectal touch, confirm prostate size, quality, sclerosis, calcific
focus, calculus, etc. The result that get like this will be more accurate.
Because the structure of prostate is very complicated, it is very difficult to
confirm the correct infection position. Generally speaking, the secretion of
prostate gland is the mixture of normal secretion and infected secretion. This
is the reason that sometimes WBC are many, sometimes is few. This kind of
situation depends on doctor's correct sample tactics and the level of
examination. The doctor should analyse the condition and the result of
laboratory examination comprehensively, In order to make a comprehensive
treatment solution finally.
 Negative presence of pathogens from microbiological laboratory examination
(Gram stain, culture and blood test). Negative presence of antigens from RTD-PCR
 Microscopic Examination (10x40) of EPS shows < 10 white blood cells per
field, red blood cells 0 and lecithin count > 70% (+++)
 Microscopic Examination on semen shows < 5 white blood cells per field,
red blood cells 0 and normal active sperms > 70%
 Digital Rectal Examination shows normal size prostate, soft texture, no pain
on pressure, no hard lumps, obvious central groove and normal size under
 Microscopic Examination on epithelial cells of the urethra and the prostate
shows normal state.
Unlike acute prostatitis, chronic prostatitis develops
gradually, continues for a prolonged period of time, and may have
subtler symptoms. Chronic prostatitis will develop from an acute
prostatitis bacterial infection that keeps recurring or from a
urinary tract infection, urethritis, or epididymitis. Chronic
prostatitis is more common in men aged 30 to 50 and is thought to
also be associated to hormonal changes of aging and also certain
lifestyle influences (excessive alcohol drinking, perineal injury,
certain sexual practices).
prostatitis will cause the prostate hypertrophy, because the
bacteria erode the prostate texture every days, so the prostate
texture will become strong and enlarged day by day.When the enlarging prostate gland narrows the urethra, a
man will have increasing trouble starting the urine stream.
Because some urine remains behind in the bladder, he will have
to urinate more often, perhaps two or three times at night (nocturia).
The need to urinate can become very urgent and, in time, urine
may dribble out to stain a man's clothing. Other symptoms of
BPH are a weak and sometimes a split stream and general aching
in the perineum (the area between the scrotum and anus). Some
men may have considerable enlargement of the prostate before
even mild symptoms develop.
If a man must strain hard to force out the urine, small
veins in the bladder wall and urethra may rupture, causing
blood to appear in the urine. If the urinary stream becomes
totally blocked, the urine collecting in the bladder may cause
severe discomfort, a condition called acute urinary retention.
Urine that stagnates in the bladder can easily become
infected. A burning feeling during urination and fever are clues that infection may have developed. Finally, if urine
backs up long enough it may increase pressure in the kidneys,
though this rarely causes permanent kidney damage.
The chronic prostatitis cause the
serious result to influence men life and spirit, so the
men's health ought to be care by all the society, ought to care by
yourself and improve the living environment and habit, use
the green therapy without side-effect is the best choosing for the
