Prostate Infection

A prostate infection is usually the result of the prostate being exposed to an infectious agent. The main culprits are bacteria, fungi, mycoplasma, viruses and parasites. Prostate inflammation is called prostatitis.

When the infectious agent gets into the prostate, the infection results in inflammation. This infection affects the prostate health of 6-8 percent of the male population. It is believed that one in two men will experience it in their life time.

Infection can be acute (sudden onset and short duration) or chronic (persisting for several months or recurring).

Acute infections of the prostate are usually associated with infections in other parts of the urinary tract.

Four Types of Prostate Infection

  • Acute bacterial prostatitis (usually less than 5% of cases)
  • Chronic bacterial prostatitis
  • Chronic abacterial prostatitis (infection without bacteria)
  • Prostatodynia (pain in the prostate gland) originating from urethral strictures, prostatic hyperplasia (enlargement of prostate).

Upon examination the doctor will find an enlarged warm, tender, firm, and irregular prostate.

Doctors usually will not preform a vigorous digital exam of your prostate if an infection is present. To do so may risk the possible spread of the infection to your bloodstream.

Prostate Infection Symptoms will help identify the diagnosis. Laboratory tests will identify the cause.

Causes of Infection of the Prostate? Understanding the cause will help you to better avoid getting infected.

Infection of the Prostate: Diagnosis

Diagnosis is made after a careful history, culture of prostatic fluid or tissue and sometimes a histologic examination of tissue. In order to identify the location of the source of the infection, a divided urinary specimen is collected.

Collecting a Divided Specimen

Patient pre-hydrates before appointment.

Patient avoids sexual intercourse for 48 hours prior to test.

With the foreskin retracted (if present), the glans penis will be cleaned and 10 to 15 ml will be collected in the first container. This is the urethral urine.

The second voiding is of 50-75 ml of urine into a second container. This is done without interruption. This is the bladder urine.

If acute prostatitis is not present, the physician preforms a prostatic massage. Any fluid that is expressed is collected to check for signs of symptoms.

This procedure is not preformed in acute prostatitis. There is a version for acute prostatitis that is not recommended for chronic prostatitis.

There is a similar specimen collection called Expressed Prostatic Secretion Collection and (rarely used) one called the Four Glass Test.

A Better Way to Eliminate Prostate Infection

There is a better way to treat prostate infection

Although the research is not definitive, there is strong evidence that prostate inflammation can induce somatic mutations and neoplastic transformation. Put in simpler terms, the inflammation (associated with infection) causes oxidative stress which causes prostate cancer (note: this is an over simplification).

Another factor found to be a part of the cause as well as the prevention is glutathione or the lack of glutathione.

Simply put, "...use of antioxidants...could help prevent carcinogenesis."

One of the most important antioxidants in the body and the one that the above study indicates is silenced, is glutathione. Boosting glutathione may be the best way to eliminate the Infection.

Where Can I Get the Glutathione Boosting Cysteine?

We feel the best way to boost glutathione is by eating a raw food diet. With only fifty percent of your diet in raw fruits and vegetables, you can enjoy the benefits of glutathione.

A second best way would be to take supplements. We have looked everywhere to find the best quality at the lowest price. Your purchase supports this site. You can purchase directly from the company at the same price as there is no markup from purchasing from us.

The biggest benefit is that you can get products at a fraction of what the MLM companies charge.

Another way to increase glutathione is by managing your fluid and electrolyte balance. By using unprocessed salt, the minerals in the salt help increase glutathione. Additionally glutathione is hydration dependent. By hydrating our bodies, we increase the potential for GSH to be produced. This is a low, almost no cost way to increase your glutathione.

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.
