prostatitis, in all its forms, is one of the most common urological disorders and can affect men of any age. Approximately one-third of all men during their lifetime will experience symptoms consistent with prostatitis. Although often thought to be the result of bacterial infection, prostatitis may be characterized by inflammation without evidence of infection. In fact, fewer than 10% of cases of prostatitis are caused by bacteria. Chronic prostatitis (CP), or chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CPPS) as it is now known, is the most common manifestation of the disease (accounting for 90% of cases) but remains the least understood.

Nowadays, Herbal medicines are becoming popular as alternative medicines in Western world and an estimated one third of adults in the developed countries use herbal medicines. There are about 11,000 species of herbal plants for medicinal use and about 500 species of them are commonly used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). The World Health Organization (WHO) defines herbal supplements as "Finished, labeled  medicinal products that contain active ingredients from aerial or underground parts of plants, or other plant material, or combinations thereof, whether crude state or as  other preparations". However, herbal products may be significantly underreported and underestimated in the treatment of prostatitis, and probably more frequently than the using of antibiotics. The fact is that Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a major safety concern, especially, for drugs with narrow therapeutic indices (like antibiotics), and may lead to severe adverse reactions that are sometimes life-threatening. Due to the present clinical outcomes of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) treatments, there are more and more people using the herbals during the treatment of prostatitis. The common pharmacological properties of herbals that have been reported to interact with prostatitis are confirmed in these patients. This may provide a strategy for predicting a herbal's potential for interaction with prostatitis and for designing new treatment that do not have side effects.

On the other hand, clinical studies have indicated that Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill does interact with prostatitis. The symptoms of Prostatitis are relieved by Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has inducing effects on prostatitis. The inflammation are also reduced during the therapy of Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill. Although antibiotics are one of the most frequently prescribed drugs used to prevent infection of prostate, the adverse effect and efficacy are not good. Many cases of antibiotics treatments show the side effect and relapse. It is known that there are many antibiotics interactions with the risk of other disease. It has been shown in many patients with prostatitis that Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is safe, and can be the best prostatitis alternative treatment.
