The modern society we live in is characterized by mounting work pressure and the influence of monotonous tasks. Consequently, numerous men have experienced the emergence of psychological disorders, including frequent feelings of anxiety and irritability, as well as suppressed tension. Failure to promptly regulate these negative emotions can have a severe impact on both the body and mind, potentially leading to the development of prostatitis.

High pressure, chronic prostatitis is coming!

Chronic prostatitis is a common disease in men. Its main clinical manifestations are frequent urination, perineal discomfort, and abnormal routine tests of prostatic fluid. Its characteristics are complex symptoms, prolonged course, and easy recurrence. Because of its high incidence rate, long course of the disease, and poor treatment, many adult men have been troubled and seriously affected in their daily work and life.

The reason why chronic prostatitis is difficult to heal is not only due to anatomical, bacterial, and physiological reasons but also emotional factors, especially emotions such as tension, anxiety, and depression, which increase the difficulty of treatment. This is not uncommon in clinical practice.

Case 1: Jerry, in his forties, works for a software development company and often experiences high work pressure and overload. In the past month, he has encountered a series of unpleasant things at work that have been bothering him. For this reason, Jerry felt some shortness of breath, discomfort in the lower abdomen and perineum, testicular pain, frequent urination, urgency, etc., which affected his normal work.

He had to put down his work and went to the hospital for a comprehensive and detailed examination. He underwent a B-ultrasound, chest X-ray, electrocardiogram, and CT, but no abnormalities were found.

Finally, a routine examination of prostatic fluid was carried out and it was found that the patient had chronic prostatitis. Afterward, Jerry went to multiple major hospitals but could not cure them, causing unbearable pain.

Case 2: Albert is only 22 years old. He experienced discomfort in his lower abdomen and testicles for over three months and symptoms such as fever, fatigue, headache, dizziness, burning urethra during urination, and poor rest at night. He thought it was a nervous breakdown caused by excessive nervousness in learning and had taken oryzanol and vitamin drugs, but his condition did not improve significantly.

Later, the routine examination of prostatic fluid found two "+" for lecithin bodies and two "+" for white blood cells. Albert was initially diagnosed with chronic prostatitis. After some explanation, the doctor relieved Albert's psychological pressure and suggested that he actively exercise, avoid prolonged sitting, and take appropriate medication. His symptoms quickly improved.

Relieve anxiety and naturally heal prostatitis

Many patients with chronic prostatitis are similar to Jerry and Albert. They often experience discomfort in the external genitalia, testicles, perineum, and waist due to increased work and study pressure. In addition, symptoms such as urgency, pain, frequent urination, white fluid flow in the urethra recur, and even sexual dysfunction occur, making them restless and suffering abnormally.

Some patients repeatedly seek medical treatment in hospitals and hire many famous doctors. They take a lot of medication and do not know how often they undergo physical therapy and prostate massage, but the therapeutic effect is not ideal. What is the reason for this?

In order to solve this mystery, medical experts from various countries are making unremitting efforts. A British doctor named Miller, after repeated clinical research on many chronic prostatitis patients, used a new approach to explore the causes and treatment methods of chronic prostatitis and achieved certain results. In his research on a group of patients with chronic prostatitis, he found that these patients have different stress factors when symptoms occur or worsen—for example, work fatigue, anxiety, emotional fluctuations, etc.

Therefore, Miller believes stress factors are a significant cause of chronic prostatitis. He adopted behavioral therapy to relieve tension and treat the patients in this group. After several months of follow-up, 80% of patients reported symptoms of relief or recovery.

Based on this research achievement, he pointed out that stress may be a more critical factor among the many causes of chronic prostatitis (such as pathogenic microbial infections, congestion, immunity, etc.). Although the term 'tension' can be used in many situations and is difficult to analyze and compare quantitatively, eliminating tension is inevitably beneficial for treating chronic prostatitis. Miller believes that calling chronic prostatitis "tension prostatitis" may be more accurate.

Many scholars agree with Miller's view that psychological factors play an essential role in the etiology of chronic nonbacterial prostatitis, up to 50%. Compared with the normal population, patients with chronic nonbacterial prostatitis prefer to actively report their physical discomfort and anxiety-related pain, manifested as overly tense behavior.

Some scholars believe tension is a major characteristic of patients with chronic nonbacterial prostatitis, and refer to this condition as "tension prostatitis". The various psychological symptoms that chronic prostatitis patients experience mainly include anxiety, depression, fear, and pessimism, especially in those with pain symptoms. Moreover, the psychological state of patients directly affects the therapeutic effect of drugs.

Therefore, if people with various symptoms of chronic prostatitis learn to self-regulate and relieve tension, anxiety, and depression through multiple methods, they may one day suddenly discover that the pain, bloating, frequent urination, and urgency that once caused you unbearable pain and lingering discomfort have disappeared at some point.
