How I cured my prostatitis at home – no doctors or medications.

Please read “Updates” at the end of the post.

Before talking about how I cured my prostatitis, I would like to briefly examine some backgrounds of a new approach to ease to perceive why this way is better than others and to deserve some trust credit of my readers.

I haven’t been at the doctor’s office for the last six months as I got rid of all the signs of prostatitis. Since the underlying mechanism of prostatitis is still not known, current medical treatments are directed towards relieving from the specific symptoms of the illness. Moreover, an enlarged prostate doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll have more or worse symptoms. It’s individual for each person. The prostate gland expands throughout most of a man’s life; benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is the most common benign neoplasm in men. About 50% of men between the ages 50 and 60 and 90% of the age 85 experience BPH. Hence, there are no specific characteristics that could be served for accurate evaluation of the illness severity, just symptoms.

On this basis, the proposed approach also aims to the prostatitis symptoms relief rather than curing the disease as such. Let’s start with some primary term descriptions to avoid misunderstanding.

What is prostate?

Prostate: size and location (normal and enlarged)

The prostate is a male reproductive system organ of mammals, a walnut-sized exocrine gland, about 11 grams (0,4 oz), located just underneath the bladder, between the bladder and the penis. The urethral duct runs through the prostate tissue, carrying urine from the bladder out through the penis. From the backside, it contacts to the rectum. About 30 % of the semen is the prostate fluid, an alkaline milky solution of enzymes, zinc, and simple sugars. The prostate fluid protects the sperms in the “hostile” acidic environment of the vagina, nourish them and helps them to get their destination, an ovum and fertilize it. Beside secretory, prostate includes muscular tissue helping semen discharge during ejaculation.

What is prostatitis?

Wikipedia defines prostatitis as an inflammation of the prostate gland. According to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases classification, there are four different forms of prostatitis: acute and chronic bacterial prostatitis, chronic pelvic pain syndrome (chronic non-bacterial prostatitis) estimating for 95% of prostatitis diagnoses and asymptomatic inflammatory prostatitis, the relatively uncommon form of prostatitis. The first two forms of prostatitis are treated by antibiotics, the third, and the most popular form is handled by some medications, physical therapy, nerve modulators, phytotherapy, surgery, and more.

Symptoms of prostatitis.

The size of the prostate may grow over ten times with age, and in about a third of men, it squeezes urethra affecting urine flow. This causes symptoms such as:
Dribbling at the end,
A difficult start,
A thin stream,
Difficult and painful urination,
Pain in the pelvic area,
Lower back pain, and many other pain symptoms in the urogenital tract.
Many of the symptoms of prostatitis share with those of prostate cancer, however, you should know that it does not cause cancer, and your chance to get cancer is the same as those who have no symptoms. So if you found yourself with any of the signs of prostatitis, first visit your doctor to figure out you have prostatitis, not cancer, and what type of prostatitis you have and assess the pros and cons of the treatment methods available.

How I cured my prostatitis?

If we go deeper into the definition of prostatitis, we find that inflammation is a protective response of body tissues to toxic stimuli such as pathogens, injured cells, or any other organic or non-organic irritants. Inflammation involves a variety of defense mechanisms such as the local or general rise of body temperature, immune response, and molecular mediators to localize the injured site and ultimately restore the tissue functionality.

Not surprising that our prostate contacting to the bladder and urethra carrying liquid wastes from one side and colon carrying fecal wastes from another side, exposed to the influence of these irritants throughout the men’s life. Even if we do not know the mechanism of BPH, we can assume the right causes of prostate inflammation leading to the symptoms mentioned earlier. In this regard, our lifestyle, what we eat and what we drink or smoke play a primary role in the development of inflammatory processes in the prostate.

On this base, and bearing in mind the fact that the exact mechanism of prostatitis has not yet been found, any treatment to reduce symptom hardness should be focused on total or, at least, partial removal of inflammation. I won’t analyze the pros and cons of available approaches in this post, but their low or medium efficacy and a vast number of side effects make you wonder whether to apply them or not.

So primarily I focused on a search of the herbs or natural substances with strong anti-inflammatory qualities and lower side effects and then on how to deliver them into the prostate.

The recipe for inflamed prostate treatment.

I found the following recipe most useful and without any noticeable side effects:
1. Shilajit;                                                                  150-200 mg
2. Eucalyptus leaves:                                               1 tablespoon
3.Willow Herb (Epilobium parviflorum):                1/2 teaspoon
4. Water:                                                                   150-200 ml (5-6.7 oz)
Pour into a glass mug, 150-200 ml of purified water, add 1/2 teaspoon of Willow Herb. Boil the content for 10 min, add one tablespoon of shredded
Eucalyptus leaves and boil for 5 more minutes on low heat. Chill out up to 50 °C (122°F), strain to clean off the debris, and then add 150-200 mg of Shilajit and stir to dissolve it.

How to deliver anti-inflammatory decoction into a prostate?

Almost all recipes of anti-inflammatory teas prescribe to drink them two or more times a day for two or more weeks. Imagine how much active substance from one tablespoon herb can get a small organ like prostate following drinking of 200 ml of tea. Drunk tea gets into a stomach first and undergoes digestion by digestive juices and then gets into a circulatory system and dissolves uniformly throughout the body. Assuming the average weight of inflamed prostate is about 50 g (1.8 oz), and body weight is 80 kg (176 pounds), the prostate can receive only 0.125 ml (0.004 oz) of the tea. But how much active ingredients contain this amount of decoction? What about our digestive system? Is it good for our stomach to drink regularly so much biologically active tea, particularly if it has its own problems? No wonder that all prescriptions suggest stopping drinking the tea if you experience any discomfort in your stomach.

These calculations and keeping in mind the position of the prostate very close to the anus convinced me to use the vent as a delivery way of the anti-inflammatory decoction into the prostate.

Inflamed prostate treatment

The rectum is a small, a few inches long, part of the large intestine adjoining prostate directly and taking part in absorbing water and electrolytes from food that has remained undigested. So we can use these easy to access position of the prostate and the ability of the walls of the rectum to efficiently absorb water to treat the inflamed prostate. The picture shows that in the prone position of a person not only most of the decoction will penetrate prostate and reduce inflammation, but it will make healthy all the other organs in this area too.

Instructions how to use anti-inflammatory decoction.

  1.  Cleanse your rectum with warm purified water. The best choice for this is a rubber enema with the tip greased with Vaseline for man. Use from 200 to 400 ml (13.5 oz) of water. After you put the enema, lie on your stomach for 5 minutes and then take a toilet.
  2. The decoction must be warm enough, but not scalding. If you can hold your finger immersed into it for five seconds, it is what you need. Use 50-100 ml (1.5-3 oz) of the decoction prepared as shown above for one application.
  3. Lie on your stomach for one hour to let all the liquid to penetrate from the rectum into the blood and the surrounding organs.
  4. Repeat this procedure two times for one or two days and if you feel positive changes in your prostate do only once a day for the next 7-10 days.
  5. Even though you have no signs of prostatitis, it can come back at any time; there are so many factors affecting the prostate. However, now you are aware of what and how and equipped to take care of it; any time when you feel new symptoms, treat your prostate 2-3 times with anti-inflammatory decoction.  
READ  Cure prostatitis by varicocele treatment

Usually, you feel much better after the second or third enema application, but it may be individual in each case. The temperature of the decoction slightly higher than the body temperature makes the rectum and prostate relaxed and more receptive to the healing effects of the active substances in the liquid. Try to put an enema three or more hours before going to bed.

What can you get following the proposed way of prostate treatment?

  1. Total or partial elimination of prostatitis symptoms. The healing effect or relief you usually feel the next day following treatment.  
  2. Overall improvement of urogenital organs, health status in the pelvic region.
  3. As a side effect of the treatment and depending on your age, you can feel an increase of libido, stamina, and night erection.
  4. Improvement of self-feeling and self-confidence in life.

Conclusion

To summarize, I would like to draw your attention and focus on to change our attitude to the prostate. We used to know that this small organ works for tens of years with no problem, just like our heart or any other internal organ, however, the reality is that neglect of its health doesn’t work anymore and leads to prostatitis with the bunch of bothering symptoms. We should learn how to take care of our prostate despite we have prostatitis or not.

The way how I cured my prostatitis outlined above is straightforward and useful in treating the inflamed prostate. We use only natural ingredients with high anti-inflammatory potency. An alternative way to get to the prostate through rectum allows using a healing power of our anti-inflammatory decoction thoroughly and relaxation effect of high temperature.

In the next post, I will focus on why I have chosen these specific ingredients for anti-inflammatory decoction, their qualities, and potential side effects.

Updates

About six months no sign of prostatitis bothered me. However, as I mentioned earlier prostatitis, as an inflammation of the prostate gland may come back any time if the conditions favor for this. And this happened to me. It is my experience and I hope someone will find it helpful for himself. Here are the updates:

  1. I excluded Willow Herb (Epilobium parviflorum) from my recipe, because of its strong hormonal effect.
  2. The decoction is still very effective. The result is amazing, just put one enema and calm sleep for eight hours instead of getting up 2-3 times a night.

Try it!

12 thoughts to “How I cured my prostatitis at home – no doctors or medications.”

  1. Hello, Makhsud, my X is passing through this very difficult time with prostate cancer, your site has brought me up to date information on the prostate grand.

    This site would be very beneficial information for him. The only problem is that he is Latin Americano that has a limited understanding of the written English language.

    What has captured my interest is your Holistic approach to the cure of the prostate because this is my approach also, not just in the prostate but with all our medical problems and would go as far as to say that if not some but all our problems radicate around Inflammation.

    I concur with you in the use of ingredients with high Anti-inflammatory potions and also adds to my understanding that Mother Nature has the capacity to reverse all medical ailments. She has been with us from the beginning of man to the present date. The only difference is science has been able to prove her forth and there are some of the most extraordinary cures that are taking place in today’s world.

    It is a very slow process and there are still too few doctors that follow that this protocol.
    I believe that at some point in time this will be a norm in all households. This knowledge cannot be suppressed.

    My approach is “There is always a better way as Mother Nature intended”. Thank you for your work in this field and bring about a better understanding of the Prostate gland.

    Always a Better Way Linda

    1. Dear Linda. Thank you so much for your supportive comment. I’m so sorry about your close man to have been diagnosed for prostate cancer. But I’m not surprised, unfortunately, I know that one in about 15 American in their 60s will be diagnosed for prostate cancer. This is a terrible statistics, but the statistics that should force every man to STOP and THINK.

      I agree with you entirely; from the very start of any life, Mother Nature put the most powerful mechanism of self-healing. As a biologist, I know that even at the level of one cell we have hundreds of repair genes watching the correct work of our genetic material. Does it make sense to take so much care of a tiny cell and ignore such a complex organism as the human body?
      Definitely, everybody has its intrinsic mechanism, I’d say, of correcting if something goes the wrong way. And we just have to learn how to help our body to do its work instead of suppressing the symptoms of illness with drugs.

      Wishing you the best health

      Makhsud

  2. Hi Max
    I have suffered an enlarged prostate and I could sense it was close to and pressing on my colon. Larry Clapp in his book mentions toxins that can transfer through the colon wall into the prostate. I have read about coffee enemas and as I was taking opioids for the pain I did some coffee enemas. They may have helped the liver but it seems they irritated the prostate. My urologist and any medical people I have spoken to discount my suggestions that constipation and toxins through the colon wall may cause problems. I have had an enlarged prostate to the point that the bladder was not fully emptying and the kidneys were unhappy so despite trying herbs etc I had to resort to a TURP procedure where my prostate was reduced in size ( 80cc to 34cc or is it grams).
    Anyway all good now but I think I will follow your enema potion and diet suggestions. Thank you for imparting your knowledge and confirming the link between prostate issues and the colon toxins

    1. Hi Wayne
      Thank you for your comment.
      I’d like to draw your attention not as much to what I used to treat my prostate condition, as to the approach I used. There are hundreds of anti-inflammatory herbs and natural remedies that may be helpful for many but there is no one that could be a panacea for all. It is the same as we all are different and develop our illnesses differently. Any chronic illness develops in our body very slowly, sometimes for tens of years, changing the normal metabolism of the cells and organs for the sake of life-saving. All that means that if you got that condition you must be ready for the long fight to get back on track.
      As to my personal experience, I found these four life-changing tricks very helpful:
      1. Changing the diet to include more natural and organic foods and anti-inflammatory spices.
      2. Avoid staying in the cold for a long time and sitting in the chair as well.
      3. From time to time putting of enemas.
      4. Stretching exercises for the pelvic area.
      All this helps me to keep my prostate and all the other organs in that area happy and healthy.

      1. Hi Makhsud
        Thanks for getting back to me.
        I listened to a radio blog by Dr. Medici who said males don’t generally suffer testicular cancer because the testicles are always moving around etc.Interesting.

        In this regard, I even considered prostate massage but found it too difficult to arrange.

        But I am considering enemas not coffee as it seemed for me to cause some irritation. Are you able to suggest those herbs again you previously mentioned in your blog

        In regard to your other suggestions, I went for a long run and jog on Saturday and it was cold although I was rugged up though there were times I felt the cold. Two days later, today, I have a headache and have sinus issues. So perhaps cold is an issue for the body.

        At work, I did ask for a standing desk. I have changed my diet to more ketogenic. You have probably read the book by Larry Clapp. He has some good suggestions. But I am sure the constipation time wastes are held in the colon close to wall separating it from the prostate.

        My wife recently died of gall bladder cancer. looking back I recall she never drank much water. I reckon dehydration may have contributed to or caused her cancer. In fact, dehydration may be a cause for all cancers. If the cells don’t get enough hydration they are unable to get rid of wastes. Cells are always dying and regenerating. I understand the cells in parts of the eyes regenerate in days. We are made up of 60-70% water so could it not be plausible that dehydration stops this natural process and may lead to cancer in a particular part of the body?

        Cheers
        Wayne

        1. Hi Wayne

          I wouldn’t say that “males don’t generally suffer testicular cancer.” Just googled out and found “Testicular cancer is the most frequently diagnosed form of cancer in men between the age of 15 to 44-years.” Yes, it is one of the most curable forms of cancer, but anyway. And the movements of the testicles has nothing to do with their vulnerability to cancer. To be precise, they are not moving more than any other part of the body.
          Regarding the prostate massage, I do not think that it’s really difficult to arrange at home conditions, there are lots of prostate massagers on the market, but I’m not sure about their efficacy.

          Unfortunately, the most potent anti-inflammatory remedies are spices such as turmeric, ginger, or coriander which may irritate the prostate as well. So you cannot use them with enemas but I’d recommend them to add to your everyday diet.

          As to my suggestions in my blog, at least they worked for me. As I noted in the blog I excluded Willow Herb from my recipe, because of its strong hormonal effect. Willow Herb (as tea) is one of the most popular herbs recommended for prostate issues. It might need to set the effective healing concentrations of the herb in enema solution.

          In regard to your running exercises, I am an opponent of long runnings, especially in cold. The best what I’d suggest is fast walking with wide steps for 30-60 min a day. And it shouldn’t be stressful for you.
          I’d strongly suggest some stretching exercises, which I found very useful. (https://yourhealthyprostate.com/cure-prostatitis-and-chronic-pelvic-pain-syndrome-by-chinese-medicine-practices/). I’m doing stretching on the bench every day for about 20-30 min on each leg. You just forget heavy legs, lower back pain and it regulates circulation in the pelvic area best of all.

          Yes, it’s hard not to agree with you about dehydration. And I hope you know that the tap water must be filtered.

          Best regards

          Makhsud

  3. Hi! Have you tried supplements that include palmetto saw zinc and lycopene? I’ve read that they are of great help when it comes to dealing with prostatitis. I found this article about it: best-prostate-treatment-over-the-counter-in-2020.
    Don’ t know if those are any good , tho!

    1. Hi. Thank you for your question. Definitely, all the ingredients of the supplements are thought to be helpful in treating prostate symptoms. I tried some supplements presented in that post, ProstaGenix, for example, and a few saw palmetto extracts. Unfortunately, in the long run, none of them were helpful. What does modern science say about saw palmetto read here: https://yourhealthyprostate.com/does-saw-palmetto-work-in-treating-enlarged-prostate-symptoms/ and make your choice.
      Have a great weekend!

  4. Hello,
    Are there any alternatives to using the rubber enema, maybe something I could drink to cleanse my colon, and if so, what is the procedure. I don’t think I will be able to use an enema 2 times a day, it may prove to be very difficult for me. Thank you!

    1. Hi Gabriel
      The procedure described in the post aims to deliver anti-inflammatory decoction into the prostate gland rather than the cleansing of the colon. We are not considering the whole large intestine, just only the last small part called the rectum which is in contact with the prostate. Depending on your body size the optimal tolerable amount of the decoction may range from 50 to 150 ml. It usually takes from 30 to 60 min for the whole decoction to absorb through the walls of the rectum without any bothering side effects.
      But anyway, if you feel that enemas are not a good fit for you you can find some other alternative approaches to treat prostate issues here: https://yourhealthyprostate.com/natural-treatment-of-enlarged-prostate-and-prostatitis/

      Best regards
      Max.

      1. Hello Max,

        Thank you for your response. I was wondering if the decoction was still effective without the use of enemas, and if enemas are mandatory, are there any alternatives to enemas that I may use such as a suppository or such. Also, what is the most effective treatments and lifestyle changes do you recommend for the cure of prostatitis. For reference, I am a 21 year old male, 140lbs, never been sexually active who is diagnosed with chronic prostatitis. My symptoms are testicular pain (primarily following ejaculation), erectile dysfunction, and urinary incontinence for upwards of 2 years. I am hopeful that my treatment and cure lies in Eastern medicine rather than the numerous antibiotics I have been fed the last few months. A detailed treatment would be highly recommended, as I am getting desperate and the pain intolerable. Thank you so much for your time and consideration.

        1. Hi Gabriel
          If you are looking for alternatives to enema you can find some suppositories on eBay. I’d recommend S. with shilajit and propolis to start with. They are well known for their anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties.
          Lifestyle hints to prevent or ease prostatitis symptoms you can find here:
          https://yourhealthyprostate.com/natural-treatment-of-enlarged-prostate-and-prostatitis/
          https://yourhealthyprostate.com/lifestyle-to-mitigate-prostatitis-symptoms/
          And I’d strongly recommend giving up junk food, drinking at least 8 cups of water a day to lower inflammatory processes in the body.
          Stretching exercises for the pelvic area are recommended in many modern clinics and you can find some of them here:
          https://yourhealthyprostate.com/cure-prostatitis-and-chronic-pelvic-pain-syndrome-by-chinese-medicine-practices/
          Hope you’ll find the tips helpful.
          I’d appreciate it if you keep me posted about your healing progress.
          Have a great day!
          Max.
