Prostatitis is an infection of the prostate which normally occurs in young or middle-aged men, according to WebMD. The primary symptom is repeated bladder infections and it can also be related to other urinary tract infections. However, prostatitis does not increase the risk of prostate cancer.

Here are 10 natural remedies for men to treat a prostate infection:

1. Use medicinal herbs with antibiotic and anti-inflammatory properties such as echinacea, goldenseal and garlic to help reduce inflammation and knock out infection, according to Prostatitis.org.

2. Drink cranberry juice, which has properties that dislodge bacteria from the bladder wall so that loose invading bacteria are washed away.

3. According to Healthline, a prostatic massage can help ease prostate infection symptoms. Using herbs such as valerian or crambark to help muscles relax can also be beneficial.

4. Follow a daily regimen of vitamin and mineral supplements, which include antioxidants, vitamins A, C and E, beta-carotene and selenium.

5. Drink copious amounts of water to help keep the system flushed.

6. Seek to avoid stress and anxiety that can make symptoms worse by performing stress management techniques such as relaxing, breathing deeply and eliminating stressful circumstances.

7. Hydrotherapy, or water therapy, helps increase circulation in the prostate while helping to relax and open the urinary tract, according to Prostatitis.org. Sitting in a tub full of the hottest water you can tolerate for 15 to 30 minutes, and cold soaks may also be therapeutic and should be alternated with hot soaks.

8. Eat plenty of high-fiber foods such as fruit, vegetables and whole grain breads, according to WebMD.

9. Do kegel exercises, which involve repeatedly contracting and relaxing the muscles that form part of the pelvic floor.

10. Avoid alcohol, caffeine and spicy foods such as hot peppers, chili, pickles and salsa, which can make the problems worse.
