Is there non-bacterial prostatitis? Why are patients diagnosed with it?

Category: Chronic Prostatitis, FAQ

In my 25+ years of working with Chronic Prostatitis cases, I have yet to see a single non-bacterial prostatitis case. I have seen cases where I could not find a microbe at the beginning and I have also encountered many cases where no other doctor could find a microbe. That does not mean that those cases were non-bacterial and this was proven as during the examinations between the different stages of the Georgiadis Protocol, I have always found at least 2-3 microbes in most cases.

The explanation behind this effect is very simple: you cannot see what is not released no matter how rigorous the microbiological lab.

Why don’t other doctors find the microbes? There are three main reasons:

  1. They do not perform a prostatic pressure in advance of the patient submitting a sample.
  2. The perform a very inadequate prostatic massage (not pressure) that does not release the obstructed microbes in the prostatic glandular ducts. This is very important.
  3. Many microbiological labs cut corners when performing the sperm cultures or are not very experienced in surfacing the harder-to-detect microbes.

As such, when doctors fail to detect the microbes, they mistakingly diagnose the patient with non-bacterial prostatitis or chronic pelvic pain syndrome. For more detailed information with regards to microbe detection please check the related FAQ.

To conclude, every single Chronic Prostatitis case I have encountered has had microbes as its causing factor, even if some of them were not obvious from the beginning.
