Benign prostatic hyperplasia ie prostate enlargement

fortunately, in my late 50s, I'm not having bph which happens more frequently to older men; but unfortunately I'm dealing with chronic bacterial prostatitis (prostate infection) that most frequently happens to men 50 and younger. I guess the 50s are the new 40s.  ;D Hopefully the ton of cipro I've taken in the last few months has done the trick.  ;)

I've used turmeric some as a spice. i'll have to read up more about it.

Get tumeric with black pepper extract- it will help with the absorption. Turmeric in general is great for targeting inflammation and helping calm it down. Its also gone tk battle with antidepressant drugs and has stayed a strong, natural contender. Note that it typically takes around 90 days for the benefits and effects to be felt.

I came back to the forums to look into Prostatitis to see if I could find any information about it and it seems this forum has a wealth of posts about it. 

The only help I can offer is to try Pygeum.   I've been taking it on and off but as of the past 3-4 days I've been taking it (25mg) twice a day and I am blown away how well it's helped things.  It's relatively cheap at Vitamin Shoppe (U.S. Brick and mortar store)  It works better than Saw Palmetto.  I highly recommend taking it with food to avoid the nausea.
