Prostate pain, also called prostatitis, is making you suffer! You don't feel good. You need relief NOW! You've had an exam from your Urologist. He says you're fine.
But, you don't feel fine! You hurt! A lot! It's ruining your sleep. Your days. And your life!
You don't know what to do. Nothing so far has been making you really feel any better. And, that's why you're here on the net.
Prostate pain, it's causes, and how you can learn to prevent it, I discuss in the other articles you see in the NAV bar on the left side of this page.
I'll even talk about reversing BHP.
For the best long term results you are also going to need to learn to do the internal prostate massage. But first,
So, on this page I'll only explain what is happening and how to Soothe Your Prostate NOW!
O.K. Here's the story: These relatively sudden prostate pain attacks, that show up as 'nothing' in an exam, are almost always due to swollen tissue, congested blood and accumulated metabolic waste products.
You may even be in excellent general health.
But, if your blood flow is too greatly diminished or cut off, you are
going to suffer.
It's like when you sit in a strange position too long and your leg or foot falls asleep. The circulation was cut off too much. It hurts, feels tingley, numb, etc...
When you do that to a gland or organ (like your prostate), it hurts even worse.
To relieve these problems, you have to get the blood moving! Reduce the swelling. And, Remove the poison (the accumulated metabolic wastes).
Your gland has a covering around it that is like a skin. This skin is called fascia tissue. When the gland swells too rapidly this skin is forced to stretch more than it is able to.
Internal fascia (just like your skin) has only a certain amount of stretchability.
Take hold of the skin on your arm. Start pulling outward. When it starts to hurt, pull a little harder. Then hold it there. Feel how it keeps hurting? Does it hurt A LOT?
When there is swelling in your gland, this is what is happening to the fascia that is covering it.
Now, pull just a little less hard. Notice how much less it hurts? A lot less! Right?
O.K. You can let go now.
Did you see how a little less pressure can bring a lot of relief? The same can be true for what is happening in your body.
Another problem with blood congestion is: Lack of blood flow causes toxins to accumulate in an area. These toxins (metabolic waste products from every living cell) actually start to poison the area and cause varying degrees of inflammation, irritation, and discomfort.
If your gland hurts and you are suffering from this type of swelling and blood congestion,
This is not as complicated as it sounds. In fact it is quite simple and pleasurable to do!
To do this, you have to move the congested blood. You have to get the blood moving freely again!
The really Good News is: You don't have to reduce ALL the swelling to greatly reduce your prostate pain!
Just a little less swelling can often reduce most of your prostate pain. It may even relieve your prostate pain completely. Just like when you pulled less hard on your skin in the test example above.
Picture a traffic jam on the highway. You know how upset and miserable one of those can make you, right? You sit there for the longest time getting more and more irritable.
But, as soon as you pass the the cause of the jam up and start cruising at 60 or 70 mph again, don't you suddenly feel Amazing Relief! All is well with the world again and the upset goes away. The same is usually true for your prostate pain!
Get the blood moving again, reduce the swelling, and you will feel better!
method one: The SITZ BATH
This is a very old treatment for prostatitis dating back hundreds of years. It is also still one of the earliest, yet, still most effective remedies for prostate pain.
The Sitz Bath is very different from just taking a hot bat. The Sitz Bath brings a great flow of blood to a specific area. The regular hot bath is pleasant and generally increases circulation throughout your body. But, a regular hot bath is not nearly as effective on localized pain. Like prostate pain.
The Sitz Bath was originally performed in a large wash tub before there was indoor plumbing. It was specifically used for prostate pain as well as hemmorhoid pain, menstrual pain and bowel pain.
Today, with the modern bath tub, it is much easier to do. The Sitz Bath is highly effective and very soothing! It is also extremely pleasurable to do. It will increase the circulation to your prostate gland. And, it seems to just melt the prostate pain away! Like Magic!
You'll need a deep bath tub. One you can sit in and have the water come up just over your belly button. You want hot water to cover the entire area where you are experiencing your prostate pain.
If your bath tub does not allow the water to get that deep (because of the overflow opening), get a flat rubber sink stopper at the hardware store. They look like a flat 4 or 5 inch round disk.
Unscrew the covering from the overflow. Place the rubber disk over the hole. Put the cover back over the rubber stopper and scre it back on (make small holes in the rubber stopper for the screws to go through). This will seal off the hole and allow you to fill the tub deeper. (Just be sure to keep an eye on the tub when it fills or it can overflow!)
Then fill the tub with the hottest water you can comfortably stand. Feel it, with your hand under the faucet, as it runs into the tub.
If it is not too hot for your hand it will not be too hot for your body. It should never be painful. If it is too hot and it will burn you. Then you'll have more problems!
But Hot! Not warm. Warm will not penetrate and do the job. You will see the skin on your hand redden after being in this water for a couple of minutes.
This redness indicates a great stimulation of blood to the area. You want the blood to Flow!
Now, when the tub is full enough, shut off the water and get in it. It will at first feel too hot. That is only an initial reaction. If the water did not burn your hand while filling the tub it will not burn your body.
That is why you constantly feel the water as the tub is filling. You want the water in your sitz bath to heat you, not burn you.
You can make this a bubble bath, a mineral bath, a scented oil bath, or just a plain water bath. Whatever makes you happy is the right thing!
I personally add a little pure pine needle oil. It is a very relaxing and soothing fragrance often used in aromatherapy. It makes the whole room smell like a pine forest! Lavender is also especially good. It is specifically used to release tension in the practice of aromatherapy. A small amount works wonders after a stressful day!
Don't scoff at this. Happiness produces Endorphins in the brain. These endorphins can greatly reduce the suffering prostate pain can cause.
Once you are sitting in the tub, lean back against the end and take your hands and feet out of the water. Prop your feet up on the opposite end of the tub or the wall. Place your arms up on the side of the tub.
You ONLY want the middle section of your body in the water. This is what makes this an effective sitz bath and not just a hot tub.
This will concentrate the heat into the area around your gland and force the blood to flow there.
If you put your whole body into the tub, the bath treatment will not work properly. You want to make the blood flow heavily into just one specific area. That is why you concentrate the heat there.
Just relax and feel how good it feels in there. You'll notice the tensions start to loosen almost immediately. The prostate pain itself seems to relax. You don't rub or massage anything in here. Just relax and let the heat do the work.
Take a pleasurable book in with you. Put on some soothing music if you want. If you just prefer to relax and enjoy the silence, that's good too!
Do not do work or conduct business of any kind while you are in the tub. That will stress your system to a greater or lesser degree.
So, relax! This is your Spa Treatment. In famous European Health Spas people pay $150 for one of these baths. So relax and enjoy it. Not only will you feel better, you are saving $150!
You're going to be in this bath for 30-40 minutes. Longer, if it makes you happy. But, 30 minutes minimum! Because, it takes a while for the heat to penetrate all the way in.
It has to pass through your skin, your fatty layer, and your muscles before it even reaches your prostate pain. But, it will get there!
Every once in a while, shift your body around a little bit so that the water moves (keep your hands out of the water. You want the heat going to only one area.).
You'll feel the water warm up a little as you move. That's what you want. It shows you, also, that the heat from the previous water was absorbed into your body!
That specifically supplied heat is what will make your blood flow better and ease your prostate pain.
After a while you will start sweating. The more the better. Keep some cool water by you to drink. Drink as much as you want.
After about 15-20 minutes, you will notice the water has cooled a bit. Let some water drain out of the tub and add more hot.
After 30-40 minutes (more if it makes you feel good) put you legs in the tub. Sit up. Pull out the stopper and let the water drain from the tub while you are still sitting in it.
Then, when the tub is empty, Stand Up SLOWLY. Your body will be hot and overheated.
So, get up slowly and carefully. If you feel light headed on the way up, Sit Back Down and wait until you have cooled off some before getting up again. There is no rush. Take your time.
Once you are standing, turn the shower on full force COLD only! No Hot water.
Direct the spray on your prostate pain area and rub the area gently for a count of 15-20 seconds while the ice cold water is spraying it.
That ice cold rinse will be just like when you squeeze out a sponge! It will cause a short quick constriction of the blood vessels. That really squeezes out the old blood and toxins! The heat retained in the rest of your body will quickly open them up again.
Circulation will increase Dramatically! You will see your skin has turned red! That's perfect. How is your prostate pain now? Is it feeling better?
Once you're used to this, it will feel GREAT! You'll look forward to the end of your bath and the refreshing cold spray. The first time you do it, it will be a real shocker!
Now, take a pleasantly cool shower and dry off. You're done!
Not only is the prostate pain greatly reduced. Notice how nice you feel all over! More relaxed, calmer, happier. Isn't that Amazing?!
It's your own private prostate pain spa treatment! You can do it anytime you feel the need or desire.
Also keep in mind, your prostatitis most probabally did not develop in just one day. So, it probabally won't totally disappear and never come back again after just one bath. That would be nice! But, it is most probabally not reality.
However, the Sitz Bath can be very very soothing and make you feel much better NOW! It can have
The whole idea is to feel better. Day by day. Right now you just want to reduce the terrible hurting. But, in the long run you want your prostatitis to go away completely. You're going to have to work on that. Day by day. The other chapters in this site will show you how. So be sure to read them!
After your Sitz Bath, try not to sit in a chair right away.
Sitting in a chair is the most injurious thing that we do every day to this area of our bodies. Instead, lounge on a recliner or the couch. Or, sit cross legged on the floor.
Be sure to drink 1 or 2
large glasses of water. You've sweated a lot and you also want to move
those old toxins to the kidneys and out of your body.
method two: The VIBRATING MASSAGE
This method is also an excellent treatment for soothing prostatitis pain right away!
If you travel or work in an office all day, this method can be used almost anywhere you have access to an electric wall outlet. And,
You'll need a BIG Heavy Duty back massaging vibrator. Not a small
one or a battery operated one. A BIG One! A powerful one that plugs into
The one I used for my prostate pain problem was the Thumper Mini Pro II. This particular massager has worked very successfully for everyone I have recommended it to. But, it is a lttle pricey at $189.
Recently I discovered the ObusForme. I think it is the best buy on a good electric massager. It seems to work just as well as the Thumper for prostate pain. And, it's much more economical!
If your budget is a little tighter, Amazon also has the Sunny Fitness Massager for just $17.99. It will do a decent job and can bring you some very blessed relief!
Your massager needs to be able to reach in deeply where you are having your prostate pain. It has to be able to penetrate past the skin, fat and other tissues. It has to penetrate effectively into the prostate pain area. And, it has to be able to run for a long period of time.
If you don't get a powerful one, you won't get the results you desire.
Either lie down or sit on the floor in Japanese sitting position (Kneel. Then sit back on your heels. If that is too uncomfortable, turn the bottom side of your toes down to the floor. This will raise your heels up and make it easier.) Spread your knees wide apart.
Turn the Big vibrator on and adjust it to a high (fast) vibration. The slow vibrations don't work nearly as well.
The reason I say prostate pain "area", is that your gland could be feeling discomfort because of a problem in the surrounding area.
Now, just gently press in on the painful area. Move the vibrator around a little as you do. Just relax and keep doing this for about 20 minutes.
Breathe comfortably and deeply as you do this. See the blood and fresh oxygen moving into the prostate pain you as you are massaging and inhaling. As you exhale see a bit of the prostate pain flowing out of you with your breath.
If you're not familiar with using visualization, this may sound really silly! However, mental visualization has been proven over and over again to increase results by up to 400% in clinical studies of all kinds. So, please use it generously!
Then, start moving the vibrator to the surrounding areas. Go side to side from your belly button. Go over the pubic bone. Go to either side of the pubic bone. There are many connecting nerves and blood vessels in these areas.
Increasing the blood flow and nerve energy to these surrounding areas will greatly benefit the blood flow and nerve flow to your gland.
Do the area between your testicles and your anus. If you feel in this area with your fingers you will feel something like a thick rope there. This area is called the perineum.
The perineum is where your nerves and vessels run from your penis to all your sexual glands. A lot of prostate pain has been traced to problems in this specific area. Specifically from bicycle seats.
All the important nerves run through there. Massaging the perineum increases the blood flow and the healing nerve energy flow to the entire sexual and urinary system. It is, at the same time, very soothing!
You also have important lymph glands in this area (between your legs) which keep the blood clean. You should gently massage this area daily if you are having prostate pain or problems. Clean lymph nodes make cleaner blood. Less irritation. Less pain.
After you have given the surrounding areas a short massage, return to the prostate pain area. Spend 30-40 minutes on the whole massage. It will take that long to reach into the painful areas and affect them correctly.
You are getting fresh blood and energies into areas that have been suffocating. If you have been suffering from impotence or low sex drive, this could be very exciting.
But, if you are hurting, Do Not Be Tempted To Climax! Do not put the vibrator on your penis. This WILL make you climax.
Climax will cause a reaction that in a few hours will have your gland swelling with blood, causing more potential prostate pain. Right now, you are trying to move the blood out and reduce the swelling.
If you get an errection, just keep massaging the abdominal area and surrounding areas. The erection will gradually subside.
After 30 minutes or so, You Are Done!
With the stimulation of your vibrating massage treatment you have increased the circulation. Moved the old blood and irritating metabolic waste products. You have brought fresh new oxygen rich healing blood to your sore gland and surrounding areas. How is your prostate pain now?
Stand up and notice how much better you feel all over. I'll bet you even feel lighter and refreshed. Am I right? Isn't that amazing?!
The reason you feel better all over is that your blood and your nerve energies are moving more freely.
Creating a strong healthy blood flow full of fresh oxygen and freeing trapped nerve energies is what makes us feel better here so quickly.
One treatment like this won't usually make your prostatitis condition be gone (although it may). But, it refreshes your system, gives it renewed energy, and releases a lot of irritating and painful accumulated toxins.
You have moved a lot of toxins and you want to flush them out of your system.
So, after either of these two soothing treatments, drink 1 or 2 large glasses of pure water. Relax and breathe deeply as you go about your day or evening.
These methods can be used anytime you are suffering from prostate pain.
And, even much older men (who are too delicate for an internal massaging) and men too sensitive or too sore for regular prostate massage can usually find a lot of comfort using either of these two techniques.
The results usually last for days. But until you clear up the underlying conditions that are causing your trouble, you will continue to have attacks of congestion, swelling and varying degrees of discomfort.
So, please be sure to read the rest of the chapters in this site and learn to make yourself prostate pain free and Healthy again!
