Surely you have repeatedly heard about such a male disease as prostatitis. There is a lot of talk about this now, as the disease is gaining new proportions every year. What is most unfortunate is that prostatitis also affects very young men. Therefore, it is better to do the prevention of prostatitis from an early age than in adulthood to treat the disease for a long time and painfully.

For proper prevention of prostatitis, you simply need to follow elementary tips. In this article, we will point out some of the recommendations of experienced professionals.

Prevention of prostatitis at home

By and large, the prevention of prostatitis at home is to follow the rules of a healthy active life. Taking care of your health in general, you can simultaneously prevent the development of prostatitis. The main tips are as follows:

  • Have a regular sex life. It is sex that doctors consider the main way to prevent prostatitis. Indeed, with regular sexual activity (albeit with obligatory ejaculation), a natural massage of the prostate is performed, which leads to a decrease in the risk of bacterial growth in the ducts of the prostate gland. This helps to reduce the stagnation of prostatic juice, so the chances of developing the disease are minimized.
  • Get a permanent sexual partner. It would be good for every young man to know that promiscuity in sexual intercourse harms the prostate gland. Moreover, such sexual activity contributes to the occurrence of sexually transmitted diseases, which increase the risk of developing acute and chronic bacterial prostatitis. In any case, to protect yourself, use contraceptives (preferably condoms).
  • Lead an active lifestyle. This is especially true for those men who have a permanent sedentary job. No one is talking about you drastically changing the type of activity. Just take care of your own health by taking small breaks for walks during the working day (even if it is along the corridors of the working room). In addition, while sitting at the table, do special exercises for the prostate.
  • Avoid hypothermia. With hypothermia, the immune forces of the body are temporarily reduced. This is when the infection gets out of control. Therefore, it is necessary to take care of yourself in any situation.
  • Watch what you eat. For example, spicy, fatty and smoked foods contribute to the development of prostatitis. It is also not recommended to abuse strong alcoholic beverages and coffee.
  • Treat all urogenital infections promptly. Any untreated infection can cause prostatitis.
  • Get regular checkups with your urologist. Do this even if there are no symptoms of illness. This is especially important if you have already had a case of prostatitis. In the first year after the illness, come to the urologist every three months. The next three years - every six months. If you are a man over the age of 40, then the doctor will definitely recommend another ultrasound examination of the prostate gland.

Prevention of prostatitis with folk remedies

Do not neglect also the centuries-old experience of traditional medicine. She claims that for the normal functioning of the prostate and the functioning of the male genital organs, it is very useful to eat honey, nuts, dried fruits and many other foods available to us, rich in vitamins and mineral salts. Of particular importance for the prostate is zinc, which is found in large quantities in pumpkin seeds, meat, liver, apples, cabbage, parsley, onions, seafood, oatmeal, sprouted wheat, yeast.

If you want to get the most out of them, don't combine them with dairy products, as the latter interfere with zinc absorption. It is also recommended to give up alcohol and minimize caffeine intake: these substances rapidly remove healing zinc from the body.

Very tasty and healthy for the prostate are a variety of mixtures of nuts, honey and dried fruits. Here are a few recipes with ingredients for preparing such formulations:

  • walnut kernels and honey in equal proportions;
  • 500 g of raw pumpkin seeds and 200 g of honey;
  • 200 g of any dried fruit and 12 walnut kernels;

All of these products are crushed and combined with each other until uniform.

To the above tips, you can add one more: try to achieve regular bowel movements, do not allow the development of constipation. Vegetable fiber, vegetable oils and kefir will help to cope with this task.

Fans of traditional medicine can resort to the following recipes for the prevention of prostatitis:

  • Grind in a meat grinder one kilogram of walnut kernels and sunflower seeds. Store them separately in sealed glass jars in the refrigerator. Every morning on an empty stomach, eat a mixture of nuts, seeds (1 tablespoon each) and a grated onion until you have eaten all the prepared nuts and seeds.
  • Pour 2 tablespoons of peeled oats with 700 g of water and cook over low heat until the grains are boiled. After that, strain and squeeze the brew and take 100 g each, adding 50 ml of freshly squeezed juice from parsley leaves.
  • Pour 2 teaspoons of willow-herb (or fireweed) with half a liter of boiling water and let it brew for 5 minutes. Then strain and take 0. 5 cups every day - in the morning on an empty stomach and in the evening 30 minutes before going to bed (or 150 ml 3 times a day).

Exercises to prevent prostatitis

Separately, it should be said about the importance of gymnastics for intimate muscles. There are a large number of different individual exercises and systematized complexes that contribute to the good functioning of the organs of the reproductive system. Kegel exercises are very popular and effectivefor men and women, but others are also known.

Exercises for the prevention of prostatitis are very simple (everyone can learn how to do them correctly), convenient (they do not require special devices and many of them can be performed anytime and anywhere) and completely free, while highly effective! Exercises for the prevention of prostatitis help to strengthen the muscles of the pelvic area, perineum and anus and improve the quality of sexual relations of both partners!

Such training allows men to control ejaculation, increase stamina, deliver strong sexual sensations to a woman, and experience a vivid orgasm himself.

Even if you regularly perform just one or two exercises to prevent prostatitis, you will still do yourself a great favor:

  • Make movements with the muscles of the perineum as if you are pulling the rectum into yourself. Working at the same time, the pubococcygeal muscle, located in the perineum, is also called "love" by experts. Tighten it 5-10 times in a row, holding it in a "compressed" state for at least 3 seconds. Repeat this exercise several times a day.
  • Tighten the muscles of the perineum, as if trying to stop urination. You should also feel the muscles of the anus - squeeze them and hold in this position for as long as possible. Repeat 200 times, 4-5 sets per day.
  • Alternately squeeze and relax the love muscle. Alternate fast contractions-relaxations and slow ones.
  • Perform the same exercises (compression-relaxation) only with the anus - as with a bowel movement.
  • In the morning, getting out of bed, take a stance "at attention", folding your arms over your chest. Instantly tighten all the muscles of the body for a second, including the love muscle, as if sending an arrow from top to bottom: to the hips and perineum.
  • Stand straight, feet shoulder-width apart. Slowly do half-squats, spreading your knees to the sides. Repeat the exercise 10 times.
  • Walk in place, lifting your knees high up.
  • Lie on your back on a flat surface. Raise your pelvis, hold it for 10 seconds - and lower it. Repeat several times until you feel tension and fatigue in your buttocks.

In addition, go in for active sports: football, swimming, tennis.

Useful for the prevention of prostatitis are also lengthy bathing procedures - for an hour or more, during which you also need to "send" the "arrows" described above.

Men who are at risk should pay special attention to their own health. First of all, these are those who lead a sedentary lifestyle and those who have a job that is associated with a long stay in a humid environment, constant hypothermia or shaking.

Prevention of prostatitis, carried out in advance, will help protect yourself from an unpleasant disease. In addition, she will save material resources that could have been spent on the treatment of prostatitis.
