The basics of prostatitis prevention at home

doctors give advice on the prevention of prostatitis

Prevention of prostatitis is a guarantee of men's health, because the potential directly depends on it. To prevent inflammatory processes in the prostate gland, certain rules must be followed. First of all, it is desirable to make changes in your lifestyle: improve nutrition, monitor your condition, practice therapeutic exercises and massage. If the patient is in the process of recovery, then preventive measures include the use of medicines and medicinal products rather than traditional medicine.

Prevention of prostatitis

Preventive measures aimed at eliminating or preventing prostatitis are conventionally divided into primary and secondary:

  • primers are carried out to prevent disease progression;
  • secondary prevention is necessary for patients who have had prostatitis to prevent recurrence of the disease or its progression to become chronic.

Prevention includes a variety of therapeutic measures that help prevent prostatitis and improve quality of life. To prevent this disease, men should follow some important rules:

  1. Nutritious food. Dietary review is one of the main things in the period of prevention of many diseases. Avoid fatty and spicy foods. When used acutely, the prostate mucosa becomes irritated, and fatty foods contribute to the formation of cholesterol plaques on the walls of blood vessels, which greatly affects the blood supply to the prostate gland, creating favorable conditions for the reproduction of pathogenic microorganisms.
  2. To reject bad habits. Smoking and alcohol are strictly prohibited during preventative measures. Cigarette smoke leads to intoxication of the body, affects metabolic processes in the body, and ethyl alcohol loads the heart muscle and contributes to circulatory disorders. It is observed that alcohol in 40% of cases is the main cause of prostatitis. In addition, alcohol abuse negatively affects the entire male genitourinary system, often violating potency.
  3. See a doctor on time. It is impossible to ignore the clinical signs of the development of prostatitis. In addition, any infectious disease can contribute to the inflammatory process in the prostate gland. Do not self -medicate with STDs.
  4. Avoid hypothermia. Often inflammation of the prostate gland is the result of prolonged stay in the cold.
  5. Exercise. It is important to keep the body in good condition. It is recommended to devote at least 20-30 minutes to sports every day, especially if a man’s professional activities are associated with an inactive lifestyle. One of the main causes of prostatitis is stagnation of blood flow in the prostate gland.
  6. Take medication. If a problem with potency is identified, a man should start taking medications prescribed by a doctor. Drug therapy is one of the most important methods of dealing with prostatitis. At the same time, do not forget about traditional medicine, which has many effective remedies.


A special feature of physical exercise in the prevention of prostatitis is the training of muscle groups around the anus. To determine which muscles need to be strengthened, you can slow the flow of urine while urinating, count to three and relax. Then in the same way it is recommended to act without urinating.

Such physical exercises in the first week should be done in 5 sets of 10 contractions per day. From the second week, the training intensity is recommended to be increased to 100-150 repetitions per day.

To prevent prostatitis, you can do other exercises in a standing position:

  1. Lean with one foot on the floor, and with the other foot, do a wide swing forward and backward 80 times. Then change legs.
  2. Jump in place 100 times.
  3. Stretch your legs shoulder-width apart and tilt 15 times in both directions.

Therapeutic gymnastics is also performed in the supine position:
