Prostate gland infection, or prostatis, is the inflammation of the prostate gland. Symptoms include:
• The need to urinate more frequently during the day or night
• Dispersing only small amounts of urine with each episode
• Urgent need to urinate quickly
• Weak urinary stream
• Incomplete bladder emptying
• Loss of urine without control
• Dribbling small amounts of urine due to a poor urinary stream
• Painful urination
• Blood in urine
Prostatis is commonly due to infection caused by bacteria that spreads from the urethra or bladder to the prostate.
Bacteria commonly found in the intestines, known as coliform bacteria, are usually responsible for urinary infections in older men. Conditions that make men more prone to urinary infections can contribute to prostatis. One of these is a blockage of the outflow of urine from the bladder due to an enlarged prostate gland.

Make sure to include fruits, vegetables, whole grains, soy, beans, seeds, nuts, olive oil and cold-water fish (salmon, sardines, and mackerel) in your diet.
