Causes of Prostate Infection

The causes of prostate infection are dependent on the type of infections.

Since only 5 percent of prostate infections and resulting prostate inflammation (prostatitis) are caused by bacteria, it is difficult to pinpoint the exact cause. For the balance of cases (95 percent) the cause is unknown. Also the difference between Acute and Chronic can help you to know the cause.

Bacterial organisms, genital viruses, fungi and parasites have been implicated.

Acute Bacterial Prostatitis

This is most often caused by bacteria found in the large intestine. These bacteria have names such as Escherichia coli (E coli), and although rare, staphylococcal and streptococcal have been found to be the cause.

Untreated infections of the urethra or the bladder may spread and infect the prostate gland. This happens when the bacteria from a previous infection moves through prostatic ducts and into the prostate.

Infected urine can also pass into the glandular prostate tissue infecting through the ejaculatory and prostatic ducts.

Sometimes patients will have a urinary tract infection (UTI), treat it and if not totally eliminated, it may resurface a year later as prostatitis or as a prostate infection.

Chronic Bacterial Prostatitis

The cause of this type is a bit more elusive.

Experts are not really sure what causes chronic bacterial infection. It can develop from a sports injury, use of a urinary catheter, and even an infection in another part of the body. There is no hard evidence of exactly what the cause is because there are so many causative agents for the infection.

Nonbacterial Prostatitis

There are numerous theories of the cause but no definitive answers.

Urinary tract strictures or narrowing of the urethra can cause inflammation. One theory relates to sports injuries. Another is that it can result from doing something strenuous like lifting something heavy when the bladder is full.

Interstitial cystitis (an infection of the bladder or urinary tract) is also suspect as one of the causes for nonbacterial prostatitis.

In all of these instances, there is a decrease in the ability for the body to fight off infection. Logic dictates that if you boost the immunity you decrease the risk of getting a prostate infection.

The key to all of the causes of prostate infection is inflammation. The infections, no matter what the cause, all result in inflammation. So it would be necessary to both eliminate the cause and the resulting insult to the body. Glutathione does just that.

The Way to Make More GSH For Free

Glutathione has a high affinity for water. Simply put, if we are dehydrated our bodies may not make as much as they could. Or, what we do make may be less effective.

Usually there is something more than just being dehydrated. Often there is a condition called fluid and electrolyte imbalance, less than bodies needs. There is a simple, easy and inexpensive way to correct this, allowing your body to produce even more GSH.

The Water Cures Protocol really works. Give it a try today.

It is simple, easy, sustainable and affordable (the salt should cost less than $10 a year).

And like GSH, it will help with over 76 different diseases and conditions.
