[MODERATOR's UPDATE: I split this out from here: https://www.peaktestosterone.com/forum/index.php?topic=2783.0.
Here are some q's for you:
--So you don't think you have CPPS then?
--You wrote "once something gets into the prostate", what do you mean by that? What is the something?
--Has this ever given you a high PSA reading? I know inflammation in the prostate can jack up one's PSA.
--So are you saying that you feel low nitric oxide and blood flow are a risk factor for this kind of prostatitis?
Hi Peak...good questions!
Naw, I do not believe that I have CPPS. My main symptom especially during flare ups is I feel I cannot empty my bladder completely. CPPS symptoms seem to be more severe. Pain in the genitals or anal area, very painful urination, and painful ejaculation.
The prostate gets very little blood flow. So it is extremely difficult to "flush" any irritants from it. That is why I try to limit the toxins I take into my body. I try to limit my ingestion of chemicals and pesticides. So, if one eats foods high in pesticides, for instance, these poisons eventually end up in the prostate. It takes I long time for the prostate to eliminate these things. Also, in my case, I believe Kegels increase oxygenation and blood flow to the pelvic area. Moreover, Kegels sorta give the prostate a massage.
So, I will try to anything that helps blood flow. Exercise, reduce systemic inflammation, beetroot juice, etc. I am hoping that by improving my arteries and blood flow it will in turn help with my prostate issues. I do feel much better than a year ago...certainly my eating and exercise habits have help more than the antibiotics and Advil that the uro's prescribed me.
I am not sure about prostate inflammation and PSA's.
An alright book on some of this stuff is http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005Y6CWAQ/ref=kinw_myk_ro_title
. There are some parts that I disagree with but for the most part I found it helpful.
