Prostatitis, or prostate inflammation, affects over 200,000 American men a year. The condition involves swelling of the prostate gland, a small walnut-sized organ in the low abdomen. The Raleigh Acupuncture prostatitis treatment relieves pain and promotes healing.
Symptoms of Prostatitis
Typical prostatitis symptoms include difficulty urinating, pain in the groin, pelvic area, or genitals, and flu-like symptoms. The prostate gland is next to the bladder – signs of prostatitis can often mimic a bladder infection.
Causes of Prostatitis
Causes of prostatitis include infection, injury, or an immune system disorder. In most cases, this type of pain is chronic and does not involve bacterial infection. Your doctor can run tests to determine if antibiotics are needed.
Raleigh Acupuncture Prostatitis Treatment
Acupuncture and Chinese herbs are powerful healing tools for treating all types of inflammation, including prostatitis. There are many similarities between prostatitis, bladder infections, interstitial cystitis, and frequent urinary tract infections. These conditions impact the low abdomen and involve inflammation, resulting in pain and urinary dysfunction.
Acupuncture Relieves Prostate Inflammation
The Raleigh Acupuncture prostatitis treatment uses specific acupuncture points locally in the low abdomen and distally on the arms and legs to clear inflammation. Acupuncture reduces inflammation by increasing blood circulation in the affected area. Enhanced blood flow sweeps away inflammation and toxic heat, allowing organs to heal and return to normal.
Acupuncture Reduces Bacterial Infections
Acupuncture and Chinese herbs reduce bacterial infections naturally, with no adverse side effects. The secret to relieving infections without antibiotics lies in strengthening the body to fight off the illness. The Chinese have been practicing this healing technique for thousands of years. This treatment is often more effective than conventional antibiotics, as overuse has made many bacterial infections resistant to modern medicine.
It is common for patients to come to our clinic after taking multiple rounds of antibiotics with no effect. Acupuncture and Chinese herbs resolve prostate, sinus, and bladder infections safely and effectively.
Acupuncture Strengthens Kidneys & Prostate
A healthy prostate and bladder depend on strong kidneys. So part of every Raleigh Acupuncture prostatitis treatment involves strengthening overall kidney function. There are specific acupuncture points to nourish the kidneys, enhancing the body’s ability to fend off illness, disease, and pain. In addition to healing the prostate, strengthening the kidneys also improves urinary flow, sexual function, and fertility.
Recent Prostatitis Case
A 61-year-old man came to our clinic complaining of prostatitis, with accompanying urinary discomfort, testicle pain, and low abdomen distention. He had taken multiple rounds of antibiotics with no relief.
Our patient’s Chinese medicine diagnosis was Liver Fire with Damp-Heat in the Lower Jiao. His acupuncture treatment included LV2, LV8, SP6, CV4, LI11, and GV20. In addition, we prescribed the herbal formula Long Dan Xia Gan Pian.
After receiving four treatments (once a week), his pain levels decreased 50 percent. He was thrilled with the results and signed up for four additional sessions, reducing his pain by 80 percent. A six-month follow-up revealed that the pain had fully resolved the following month, never to return.
