Be Aware! Patients With Prostatitis Should Not Overuse Antibiotics

Date:2024-05-10 click:0

Prostatitis, as the name implies, is an“inflammation”of the prostate. However, it is not necessarily caused by bacterial infection. According to statistics, more than 90% of chronic prostatitis is not related to bacterial infection. This is just as hepatitis is not necessarily caused by hepatitis virus infection but can also be caused by a variety of non-infectious factors (e.g., alcohol, drugs).

Prostatitis andAntibiotics

Therefore, for the vast majority of patients with prostatitis, there is no scientific basis for long-term reliance on antibiotic therapy. Even in the few cases of prostatitis caused by bacterial infection, it is difficult for the fragile bacteria to survive after a period of antibiotic treatment. Clinical practice has proved that it is difficult to obtain a satisfactory effect of using antibiotics alone for bacterial prostatitis.

Prostate Disease with Dysbiosis Caused by Overuse of Antibiotics

Sam was diagnosed with prostatitis in 2010, but the symptoms were not obvious until 2018 when he felt the pain getting worse and started antibiotic therapy. When lots of antibiotics enter the body, they suppress the inflammatory symptoms, so the patient will feel the symptoms improve, but after a period of time, he will become resistant to this antibiotic. After many antibiotics enter the human body, although no pathogenic bacteria can be killed, the antibiotics will kill the beneficial flora in the human body.

Bacterial prostatitis is a disease triggered by bacterial infection. After examining and diagnosing the pathogenic bacteria, the corresponding sterilization method can be used to complete sterilization quickly, effectively inhibit the reproduction and infection of bacteria, and prevent further deterioration.

However, Sam's condition was not caused by a bacterial infection but was a sterile inflammation caused by an epithelial lesion that stimulated the body. Lesion stimulation leads to the production of inflammatory fluid without bacterial infection. Many antibiotics he has taken have triggered a flora disturbance that will take a long time to return to normal.

He had aseptic prostatitis, a problem caused by necrosis of nerves and capillaries in the gland. Antibiotics inhibit the symptoms; once you stop taking them, the concentration of antibiotics in the body decreases, and the symptoms recur. Because of antibiotics, the body has drug resistance, and the treatment will be more troublesome. Sam’s taking causes bacterial flora chaos because of the indiscriminate sterilization of antibiotics, which kills the beneficial flora of the human body.

Some medicinal ingredients in Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill have the effect of clearing heat and inducing dampness, which can help eliminate the damp-heat pathogen in the inflamed area of prostatitis, reduce the inflammatory reaction and improve the environment of the local tissues.

Although non-bacterial prostatitis is not caused by a bacterial infection, an inflammatory response remains. Some medicinal ingredients in Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill have anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial effects, which can reduce the discomfort caused by inflammation and help reduce the risk of microbial infections that may be present.

At the same time, the drug contains some diuretic components, which can help discharge excess moisture in the body and improve the symptoms of frequent urination and urinary urgency that may be present in patients with prostatitis, thus alleviating the discomfort and achieving the effect of treatment. Unlike antibiotics, Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill do not cause damage to flora in the body, so they are more suitable for long-term use, especially for patients with non-bacterial prostatitis, which is a more appropriate option.

In conclusion, patients with prostatitis should avoid abusing antibiotics during treatment. Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), such as Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill, may be a more appropriate choice for non-bacterial prostatitis. It can effectively relieve the symptoms and improve the disease without adversely affecting the flora in the body.
