Prostate: Functionality, Diagnosis and 7 Incredible Remedies (Recipes)


The number of patients who have problems with the prostate is large. Patients, regardless of age,  always have a certain amount of fear that sometimes involves elements of mysticism. The reason for this patients’ attitude towards the diseases of the prostate are that they are uninformed, they have prejudice that any disturbance of the prostate’s function will certainly lead to sexual incapacitation.

The psychological component, which is inextricably linked to diseases of the prostate, greatly complicates the treatment of patients. They are much more concerned than they should actually be, and the fear of the consequences of the disease on their “manhood” requires attention, patience and special access by the urologist.


Anatomy of the Prostate

Prostate is part of the male genital system which surrounds the back side of the urethra. It is inserted into the bottom of the bladder before the final part of the large intestine, through which is available for examination. It is an organ with muscle-glandular structure that secretes an alkaline mucus which is a component of the semen. The outer shape of the prostate is similar to a sweet chestnut, which wider end faces upwards to the bladder and the top faces downward, toward the bottom of the pelvis. The diameter is 3-5 cm and weighs 15-20 grams.

The prostate gland borders with: up with the bladder, down with the muscles of the pelvic bottom, back with the final part of the large intestine and on front with the front by the pubis. It is separated from its surrounding with a capsule.

The easiest way to understand these anatomical ties is simple to imagine an apple, whose marrow is removed. In this case, the capsule is the peel of the apple and the prostatic urethra is the cavity that is left when the marrow part is removed from the apple. The urine passes through this cavity (prostatic part of the urethra) when it leaves the bladder.

This part of the urethra ends at the muscle at the bottom of the pelvis that controls urination, ie muscle that loosens and stops urine.

The prostatic part of the bladder should be imagined as a channel that cuts through the center of the prostate through which urine flows from the bladder to the lower parts of the urethra, and from there-out.


Function of the prostate

Prostatic secretions has a very important role in functional view. This secret is produced in the prostatic glands and spills through the prostatic ducts of the prostate bladder. Channels that carry the sperm out of both testicles are also emptied of prostatic urethra. So, the sperm is composed of secretions of: testicles, prostate, and others gland structures. The main task of the prostatic secret is to serve as a transportation of sperm. The second task of the prostatic secret is that it participates in the nutrition of sperm. The third one is that the secret has a role in a very important process of protecting the genital-urinary system from harmful outer factors, viruses, bacteria, etc., which can penetrate through the outer opening of the urinary channel.


Diagnosis of prostatic diseases

The examination of the patient starts with verbal contact between the doctor and the patient. This talk is the most important part of the overall examination, because with this conversation, the patient gives data for the early development and course of his illness, which are impossible to determine without saying, but can be of great importance in diagnosing the disease. This is known as “a history of the patient’s illness” or medical history. Based on the state of the patient, the doctor asks specific questions. The following procedure shall be utilization of physical methods for examination, after which, certain diagnostic tests shall be made.


Forms of Prostatitis and reasons for its occurrence

Depending on the criteria, all prostatitis are divided:

  • According to the type of cause of disease:
    • Prostatitis of bacterial origin:
      • non-specific – from different bacteria, etc.,
      • specific (TBC)
      • venerial (disease of the genitals)
    • Prostatitis without any bacteria. It is usually caused by viruses, parasites or other causes.
  • According to the way of infection occurrence:
    • The infection goes up to the prostate through the urethra from outer environment
    • The infected urine goes down to the prostatic part of the urethra from the upper structures (kidney and bladder), from where it leads to prostatic glands in reverse
    • Direct transmission of the infection from the surrounding diseased organs (hemorrhoids, intestinal fistulas, etc.)
    • A possible way for infection transmission is through the blood, especially in acute inflammation: angina, influenza, pneumonia, or chronic spots such as broken teeth, etc..
  • Diseases that are sexually transmitted:
    • Venereal: usually refers to syphilis or gonorrhea.
    • Diseases that are transmitted by sexual contact, but do not belong to the classic sexually transmitted diseases such as non-bacterial inflammation of the prostate and the bladder (Mycoplasma and Chlamydia).
  • According to the type and severity of symptoms:
    • Acute bacterial prostatitis
    • Chronic bacterial prostatitis
    • Specific forms of prostate


Acute bacterial prostatitis

Acute bacterial prostatitis is a difficult disease. It occurs at people younger than 40 years. It is usually provoked by a cold, sitting at cold places, long cycling or motorcycling etc. Also, consuming cold drinks can cause acute inflammation of the prostate. More often, it occurs at weakened organisms or reduced resistance of the body.

Acute bacterial prostatitis is characterized by symptoms that suddenly occur. These are: cold, high fever, frequent and difficult urination, pain in defacation and sometimes there can be a complete cessation of urination. Every movement causes intensifying pain, and seating is impossible. In fewer cases, the disease is accompanied by a very high fever, with severe general condition and pain in the joints and muscles.

Symptoms of acute prostatitis in uncomplicated form can spontaneously disappear without any treatment, but it can turn the disease into a chronic form if it is not treated. Therefore, it is necessary to make a medical check as soon as possible. The use of instruments through the urethra is prohibited, even in complete cessation of urination. In such cases, the bladder shall be emptied with a needle, which will be sting just above the pubis. Immediately started antibiotic therapy in patients with acute bacterial prostatitis usually provides fast improvement.


Chronic bacterial prostatitis

Chronic prostatitis is more common than the acute one. It can start as an acute form and after a few hours, pass into a chronic form.

The symptoms of chronic prostatitis are divided into local (from the vicinity of existence) and general (related to the nervous system and obstacles in sexual function). Local signs and symptoms arise mainly from the urethra. Secretion occurs with a few drops which often leave stains on the underwear. Often, secretions intensifies with defecation. Sometimes, the initial stream of urine is blurred and then it clarifies. Prickling may occur during urination, or uncomfortable feeling in the crutch, the thighs, buttock, or pain like someone is pulling your testicles.

General symptoms occur in the form of fatigue, a sense of dissatisfaction, lack of joy, and general weakness. Almost all patients complain on certain neurotic difficulties. Chronic prostatitis is often an unfounded cause of impotence. Nevertheless, we can say that this disease does not carry itself any organic disorder of sexual function.

The treatment of patients with chronic prostatitis is complex and it takes a long time. These patients should be determined hygienic-dietary measures that would act suggestively. Sitting in hot baths is recommended, avoidance of strong spices, alcohol and smoking. Antibiotic therapy in patients is not effective.

The healing process requires the application of certain hygienic-dietary measures, avoiding all physical exertion, exposure to cold, cold drinks, spicy food, long sitting, alcohol or sexual overloads that can activate the process again. This regime should be applied at least for a month.
