I have been diagnosed with non bacterial prostities and wondered if any one could advise on food,drink or supplements that will help. Thanks

Personally, I don't believe there is such thing as "non-bacterial prostatitis". I think that they simply made out that term to put into it all the cases that they don't understand. If I were you I would do a lot of cultures because there are false negatives.

And about the diet, I have tried a lot of things and I'm still confused. I'm still doing trial and error experiments and that is what I suggest you to do.

Don't waste your time with repeated cultures. If you test negative, move on to CPPS treatments. Experiment with your diet. Be generally healthy and cut out different categories of food periodically to see if you experience any changes.

I talked about repeating cultures because in the past I have experienced false negatives. I have done a lot of cultures and sometimes you need to repeat them several times in order to identify the pathogen. It is something that I have experienced myself, not something that I made up.

Once, I took antibiotics, then I repeated the culture, nothing appeared and the doctor thought that the infection was clear; but I still had the same symptoms so I asked for another culture after a few weeks because I thought it was a false negative. I repeated the culture and it was just as I thought, the enterococcus faecalis appeared again.

Experiences like that tell me that assuming that you have the so-called "non-bacterial chronic prostatitis" just because in one culture nothing appeared is a mistake. If you can find a doctor who performs the 3 glasses test complete it will be even more accurate. That doesn't mean that the antibiotics will cure you, they didn't work in my case, but thinking that your problem is muscle/nerve related while you actually have a chronic infection can be misleading.

Or you may have experienced a false positive the time that EF popped up on your testing (common contaminant). Regardless, get tested, maybe get tested a second time to be sure, maybe even try a lower risk (non-fluoroquinolone) antibiotic for a 4-6 weeks if you really want to be sure. Then move on to CPPS approaches.

Enterococcus faecalis has appeared in my semen and urine more than 5 times. I have done a lot of cultures, I know what I'm talking about. I tried a lot of antibiotics but none of them worked (and they appeared as sensitive in the antibiogram, quite odd). I stopped doing cultures because I found it a nonsense. The drugs they use just don't work. Maybe because of the poor penetration into the infected tissue or maybe because another reason (I would like to know).

I also tried pelvic floor physiotherapy with no results. That is why I'm advising to do cultures, the most accurate the better. If you know that you have an infection you won't waste money and time with wrong approaches. Of course, the question which remains is: how can we cure the infection? But having a proper diagnosis is the first step, at least.

You could try the keto diet. Basically refined sugar, excess carbs, dairy, gluten, and processed foods are what to look at removing. Particuarly refined sugar and foods with nasty artificial chemical additives in can be removed straight away, then eat more fruit and veg. As Chav has said it requires some trial and error, but if you listen to your body and see how you feel that helps. There are two herbs ashwagandha and reishi that may help that I've used.
