I've been searching for holistic solutions. Diet exercise and certain herbal remedies like Saw Palmetto, cider vinegar, and many other things. There must be something or some lifestyle that really reduces symptoms. I am adamant about not using prescription drugs to treat BPH.due the side effects.

    SNIP STARTS:

    matthew 98877   peter065546 months agoI recently just cured my chronic prostatitis of just over 2 years. I tried Cipro and otherantibiotics from the doctor but like most, it went away and came back. After several dietary changes, organic supplements etc. I came across peppermint oil capsules from a local whole foods store and I KID YOU NOT, my prostatitis went away within a week. In the morning and evening I would also drink warm water with Apple cider vinegar and honey. I don't trust the doctors to have my best interest at heart. The reality is, God made everything in nature to cure us. This did it for me. I hope this helps and I pray your healing is swift and supernatural. All the best

    ?1 Prostatitis Cure - So far so good.

    Posted 4 years ago

    I am 34 years old and had prostate prostate problems since early 20's. From around 3 years ago the problem became increasingly worse and had seriously impacted my lifestyle. I had problems urinating. Would wake up 3-5 times a night only to urinate a few drops. I had extreme pain sitting down for more than 15mins. I never thought looking at a chair would bring such dread. I would regularly leave social events due to the extreme pain or just avoid it all together.

    My doctor prescribed me very strong antibiotics which initially started with 2 week treatment. This worked the first time but the condition came back a few months later. with each return visit he would prescribe stronger and longer treatment of antibiotics, from 3 months upto 4months. Unfortunately these were no longer effective. I even saw an experienced Urologist and he basically told me that he see's someone like me coming into his clinic 1-3 times a week and basically told me there is no cure and that I would just have to live with it.

    Because of the extreme pain and the negative impact it was having on my life, I scowered the internet and tried almost everything from drinking brocolli juice, litres of cranberry juice, taking hot baths, vitamins, oils, avoiding coffee, garlic, onions, chilli, weird stretch exercises, all that. None which worked.

    Out of desperation I even tried one dubious vitamins which you could buy from the USA which had no FDA approval (this was actually the most effective). I even purchased another dubious product which you insert up your anus. Fortunately I did not have to use this  [smile]

    I am no doctor and I am not sure if this will work for you. But I know the pain you guys are going through and if my story helps one person, then its well worth it.

    The remedy which worked for me is avoiding Gluten! simple as that. Ever since avoiding gluten the symptoms have gone 95%. I dont think about it prostatitis anymore because it doesnt impact my life!. Sometimes it is difficult to avoid gluten all together and sometimes I would eat a piece of bread or have a beer. And sometimes it would flair up a little bit but this is miniscule compared to the pain I was in during the torturous times.

    I hope this works for you too.
