Prostate is a gland that produces fluid that carries sperm during ejaculation. The Prostate gland anatomically surrounds the urethra, the tube through which urine passes out of the body.

An enlarged Prostate means the gland has grown bigger and if it is not cancer, it is called Benign Hyperplasia or Prostate gland enlargement is common condition as a man get older.

Prostatitis Symptoms

Difficulty to pass urine when weak urine stream hesitant or stops creating dribbling at then end of urination. Sometimes men feel inability to completely empty the bladder. The complications that may follow are urinary tract infection. Blood in urine. Bladder or Kidneys stones.

Prostatitis can be asymptomatic at the beginning

When prostatitis is just starting, men might feel nothing. Men who come to clinic for monthly acupuncture maintenance treatments have regular Japanese medical body examination and are often surprised when the prostatitis reflex shows during palpation. Some people call this lucky chance, when prostatitis is found early and can be prevented from disease development and complications.

Acupuncture for Prostatitis

Japanese medical assessment is based on thorough palpation of the reflex zones on patient’s body. Human body reveals the condition of the organs and systems because each reflex zone is related to a particular organ or system. After identifying the problematic organs and systems, acupuncturist adapts specific individual treatment protocol to address the health problem immediately. The acupoints release the positive reflex zones’ pain and patients instantly feels much better.

There are specific acupoints that are needled for prostatitis. The patient feels how pain of the prostatitis reflex zone disappears instantly. And later on, the patient urinating easier, no pain or pressure felt on the ureter, no hesitation during urination.

Clinical Relevance

Prostatitis is usually related to stress, overwork, psychological disturbances. The Sympathetic nervous system is overwhelmed and needs balance. The organs that are involved are mainly liver, kidneys and heart.

Our clinical experience shows that people who are not educated in anatomy and physiology are not aware of how to preserve their health. The lack of knowledge and understanding how mind and body correlate leads people to feel out of control over their own health. Reading this book everyone becomes knowledgeable enough to withstand any body health problem and preserve one’s health.
