Prostatitis, or prostate inflammation, is a common condition in men affecting over 200,000 Americans a year. The condition involves swelling of the prostate gland, a small walnut-sized organ in the low abdomen. The Raleigh Acupuncture prostatitis treatment resolves pain and promotes healing if there is an infection.
Symptoms of Prostatitis
Typical symptoms include difficulty urinating, pain in the groin, pelvic area, or genitals, and, sometimes, flu-like symptoms. The prostate gland is right next to the bladder, and symptoms of prostatitis can 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 or not.
Raleigh Acupuncture Prostatitis Treatment
Acupuncture and Chinese herbs are powerful healing tools for treating all types of inflammation, including prostatitis. In fact, there are many similarities between prostatitis, bladder infections, interstitial cystitis, and frequent, recurring urinary tract infections. All of these conditions impact the low abdomen and involve inflammation, resulting in pain and urinary dysfunction.
In our clinic, we have a three-prong approach to treating prostatitis.
Resolve Inflammation Of The Prostate
The Raleigh Acupuncture prostatitis treatment uses specific acupuncture points both locally in the low abdomen and distally on the arms and legs to clear inflammation from the prostate. Acupuncture works miraculously to resolve inflammation in the body by promoting increased blood circulation in the affected area. Enhanced blood flow sweeps away inflammation and toxic heat, allowing the organ to heal and return to its normal state.
Resolve Bacterial Infection Naturally
Acupuncture and Chinese herbs resolve bacterial infections naturally, with no adverse side effects. The secret to resolving infections without antibiotics lies in strengthening the body to fight off the infection itself. The Chinese have been practicing this healing technique for thousands of years, way before modern medicines were discovered. This treatment is often more effective than conventional antibiotics, as overuse has made many bacterial infections resistant to modern medicine.
It is quite common for patients to come to our clinic after having taken multiple rounds of antibiotics with no effect, receive acupuncture treatment, and have their prostate, sinus, or bladder infection resolved after just a few treatments.
Strengthen Kidney Function For Healthy Prostate and Bladder
Healthy prostate and bladder function depends 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, boosting kidney function improves urinary flow, sexual function, and fertility.
If you have prostatitis, come in for an acupuncture treatment. Acupuncture is safe, natural, and provides long-lasting relief.
