In addition, the symptoms such as astringency of urination, pain in perineum and tumescence of the abdomen, swelling and hardness of the prostate gland, and testicular pain will also occur. The treatment should be based on promoting blood circulation and removing blood stasis.

This type of prostatitis should be mainly treated by nourishing the liver and kidney and clearing away the internal heat. In the process of treating chronic prostatitis, under the principle of syndrome differentiation and treatment, the traditional Chinese herbal medicine Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill referred to the research results of modern medicine on chronic prostatitis for disease differentiation and drug selection, in order to further improve the efficacy.
According to modern medicine, the main pathogen of prostate infection is Escherichia coli. Therefore, during the treatment, Dr. Lee chose herbs with a strong inhibitory effect on the pathogen, such as honeysuckle, forsythia, banksia rose, etc.
The main pathogens of chronic non-bacterial prostatitis are considered to be related to Mycoplasma and Chlamydia infection. Bighead atractylodes rhizome, Scutellaria and other herbal ingredients with strong inhibition on Mycoplasma and Chlamydia are also selected.
Besides, there is also a layer of lipid membrane outside the prostate, so it is difficult for general antibacterial drugs to penetrate into the prostate tissue. Therefore, some herbs can be added to the prescription, such as the peach kernel, safflower, red peony, cowherb seed, etc., so as to improve the blood supply of prostate and eliminate congestion and edema.

At the same time, it also cooperates with the herbs for promoting diuresis and relieving stranguria, so as to activate blood circulation, remove stasis, clear away heat and detoxification, and promote the discharge of prostatic secretion.
