What is Prostatitis ?

Inflammation of the prostate gland, a very common health concern, accounting for up to 25% of all medical office visits by young and middle-age men for problems relating to the genital and urinary systems. The prostate is a small organ about the size of a walnut that is situated below the bladder (where urine is stored) and surrounds the urethra (the tube that carries urine from the bladder). The prostate normally produces a fluid that becomes part of the semen, the white fluid that contains the sperm.

There are 4 types of prostatitis:

  1. Acute bacterial prostatitisis the least common type. It often causes chills, fever, pain in the lower back and genital area, body aches, burning or painful urination, and the frequent and urgent need to urinate

  1. Chronic bacterial prostatitis is also relatively uncommon. It is acute prostatitis superimposed on a defect in the prostate, which becomes the focal point for the persistent bacterial infection.
  2. Nonbacterial prostatitis is the most common and least understood form of prostatitis. It is a chronic, painful condition. Symptoms go away and then come back without warning. The urine and fluid from the prostate show no evidence of a known infecting organism, but the semen and other fluids from the prostate contain cells that the body usually produces to fight infection.
  3. Prostatodynia is similar to nonbacterial prostatitis with regard to symptoms, age of patients, and ineffectiveness of treatment. However, there are no objective findings, such as the presence of infection-fighting cells, in the urine of men who suffer from prostatodynia.


Process of inflammation of the prostate gland can have many causes varying from bacteria and fungus to trauma either mechanical or chemical, stress, or even disturbances in body’s immune system.

The science of homoeopathy is based on the principle that disease is a total affliction of body. Hence homoeopathy approach is to treat the patient who is diseased rather than treating isolated diseased organs of the body. Homoeopathy medicines are very effective in alleviating pain and other symptoms associated with this condition. Considering the recurring nature of the disease, homoeopathy is very effective in preventing relapse of the condition

Suggestion about homeopathic treatment: Homoeopathy is strongly recommended in cases of prostatitis. Homoeopathy offers effective, gentle and safe treatment for cases of prostatitis.
