Dr. Katie Carter, ND, A Practical Lesson on Chronic Prostatitis


Prostatitis is inflammation of the prostate gland, which can be due to an infection or have other causes. While prostatitis is the most common prostate problem in men under the age of 50, the incidence in all men is between 10-12%. It is often a great source of frustration for both the treating physician and the patient. Chronic prostatitis can form a complex, debilitating condition. This condition might include voiding symptoms, testicular, perineal, low back, pelvic or distal penile pain. The symptoms are often recurrent or relapsing. Western medicine uses antimicrobials, alpha blockers, and anti inflammatories but these treatments are not supported as effective in clinical trials and in the clinical setting. For this reason, curing or causing an eradication of symptoms of prostatitis can give tremendous relief to men who may be suffering for years with this debilitating condition. The four classifications of prostatitis: acute bacterial, chronic bacterial, chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome and asymptomatic are all responsive to Ozone. Most patients presenting with discomfort to your office have chronic prostatitis. Acute bacterial prostatitis is best treated with antibiotics along with Naturopathic Care due to the risk of sepsis and abscess. In addition to instructions on how to do the prostate injection, this presentation will focus on the varied presentation of chronic prostatitis, different diagnostic tests and Naturopathic treatments to use concurrently with Ozone. These treatments include the use of herbal suppositories, ozone suppositories, prostatic massage, ligament and coccyx adjustment, hydrotherapy, diet and exercise, lifestyle considerations and other Ozone injections to consider for pelvic issues.
