Arthur Canfield presents Prostate Supplements posted at All Natural Supplements, saying, “Treatment for prostatitis depends on what kind you have. The causes of chronic nonbacterial prostatitis, the most common type, aren’t well known. Doctors mostly recommend pain relievers or anti-inflammatory drugs, and warm baths until the inflammation settles down. Chronic or acute bacterial prostatitis is treated with antibiotics.BPH treatment usually depends on how severe it is. Men with very minor symptoms might only make lifestyle changes, such as cutting down on alcohol or caffeine. For more severe cases, medicines may be prescribed, including alpha blockers, which relax the prostate and allow urine flow, and alpha-reductase inhibitors, which halt the prostate’s growth and may shrink it. Some men may have to stay on these for life. If it blocks urine flow, surgery may be necessary to remove excess prostate tissue. Prostate Supplements is another plan of action.”
