Date:2019-11-02 click:0
First of all, from the anatomical and physiological aspects of the human body, the prostate and rectum are located in the pelvic cavity. Prostate locates in front of the rectum, and there is only a thin anterior wall of rectum between them.
Feces usually contain a large number of bacteria and metabolic toxins harmful to the human body. When constipation leads to high rectal pressure and poor excretion of bacteria and toxins, it is more likely to cause or aggravate prostatitis. Therefore, keeping a regular bowel movement is helpful to the treatment of prostatitis, so what can they do?

What can I eat?
Some studies have confirmed that the intake of plant fiber from food is too little, and the retention time of feces in the intestine is too long, which will change the cholic acid in the colon into a carcinogen, posing a threat to the human body.
Therefore, it is suggested that patients eat more coarse grains, fruits and vegetables to consciously increase the intake of various dietary fiber, such as whole bran flour, coarse rice, oatmeal, potato leaf vegetables, such as mustard, cabbage; apple, banana, etc., which is conducive to intestinal peristalsis and softening of feces, not only can keep the bowel movements regular, but also is an effective measure for daily cancer prevention.
Peanut, sesame, walnut, corn, rapeseed, and other vegetable oils can not only moisturize intestines directly but also decompose fatty acids. Fatty acids can stimulate intestinal peristalsis, so they are good food for moistening intestines and defecating.

Sweet potato has the function of defecation, the cellulose in it can absorb a lot of water in the intestine, increase the volume of feces, which is conducive to timely excretion of feces from the body, so eating sweet potato often can not only prevent constipation but also reduce the incidence of colorectal cancer. In addition, drink more boiled water and eat honey or yogurt in the proper amount, which can also keep the bowel movement regular.
An apple on an empty stomach in the morning helps defecate. The cellulose contained in the apple can make the feces in the large intestine soft; the apple is rich in organic acids, which can stimulate gastrointestinal peristalsis and facilitate the smooth defecation. 
On the other hand, the apple contains pectin, which can inhibit the abnormal peristalsis of the intestine and slow down the digestive activity, thus inhibiting mild diarrhea.

Prevention of constipation
1. There must be a proper amount of cellulose in the diet.
2. Eat a certain amount of vegetables and fruits every day, one apple on an empty stomach in the morning and evening, or 1-3 bananas before each meal.
3. Staple food should not be too refined, and some coarse grains should be properly eaten.
4. Drink a cup of light saltwater or honey water on an empty stomach in the morning, cooperate with an abdominal massage or waist rotation, make the water vibrate in the stomach and intestines. Drink colder boiled water all day to help moisten the intestines and relieve constipation.

5. Proper physical activities, such as lying on your back and bending your legs, squatting and standing up, cycling, etc., can strengthen the abdominal movement, promote gastrointestinal peristalsis, and promote defecation.
6. Massage the abdomen before going to bed every night to form the habit of regular bowel movements.
7. Keep in a good mood and develop a regular lifestyle.
When is the best time to defecate?
The most suitable time of defecation in a day should be in the early morning. After a night's digestion, food residues have been produced, and the feces formed have been stored in the sigmoid colon.

Feces in the sigmoid colon can make feces enter the rectum. When enough feces are accumulated (about 300g), certain pressure on the intestinal wall will cause defecation reflex and then defecate. If it is not discharged in the morning, it will produce a toxin, and the longer it is delayed, the more toxin it will produce.
How long does one defecation work?
The normal defecation cycle is 24-48 hours, and the time should not be more than 15 minutes. The best time for defecation is 3-5 minutes; the normal frequency of defecation is once a day.
Keeping bowel movements regular can play a role in preventing the recurrence of chronic prostatitis to a certain extent. In addition, patients should also actively receive treatment to avoid the irreversible harm caused by delaying the best time of treatment. Antibiotic treatment is a common method in the treatment of prostatitis.
Theoretically speaking, antibiotics are only effective for acute bacterial prostatitis and chronic bacterial prostatitis, and abuse of antibiotics can easily lead to bacterial resistance.

The traditional Chinese herbal medicine Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill has the functions of clearing away heat and detoxification, promoting blood circulation and Qi, promoting diuresis, and relieving stranguria. It can kill bacteria and viruses, eliminate patients' heavy feeling, swelling pain, and bladder stimulation, and improve urinary tract symptoms such as frequent and urgent urination.
In addition, the anti-proliferation, anti-fibrosis, and anti-calcification effects can eliminate the pathological changes of the tissues, eliminate hyperplasia, etc. At the same time, it can regulate the whole organism function of patients and achieve the goal of curing and no recurrence
