Post Treatment Protocols for Prostatis
I think that like a lot of people on these boards, I have been confused by the condition and doctors and have struggled to cure my condition with the urologists I have seen.

I am now resolved to take an empirical approach to solving the issue.

I would be really appreciative if you could comment on the below approach.

Phase 1 (Alternative Approach):
- Core body exercises (pilates / yoga) to assess whether stronger abdomen relieves pressure on bladder / prostate.
- Diet change, remove alcohol, caffeine, cigarettes. Increase fibre intake.
- Drink 3 litres of water daily.
- Take daily probiotic supplements.
- Monthly colonic hydrotherapy (after an experience where symptoms were reduced after 2 sessions - although they returned with greater severity a few days later).

Phase 2 (Orthodox Approach):
Although I have had courses of both Cipro and Metronidazole before (which did not work), if Phase 1 is not effective, I propose to:
- Visit a US clinic (I live in Africa), such as the Cleveland Clinic which looks good.
- Have seminal fluid screened for bacteria etc
- Take tailored antibiotics for as long as prescription lasts.

Phase 3: (Candida diet)
Observe a Candida diet to assess whether alternative reports of Candida being a driver of prostatitis could be true in my instance.

Phase 4 (Manilla Protocol):
If phase 2 does not work, try the injections to the prostate approach (although I read that this can in fact make things worse).

Does the above sound crazy? I really want to kick this thing.

Thanks in advance.

I had a measure of success with #3 on your list, the Candida Diet, when I tried this for a 3/4 month period last year.

Unfortunately, due to a lack of willpower I have started consuming sugar again but the return of a few symptoms merely confirms the effectiveness of the diet!

You have mentioned the manila Protocol here and it is based on a massage and culture protocol not a direct injection I believe.
