Prostatitis is a general term for inflammation of the prostate gland — an organ about the size and shape of a walnut, located just below the bladder in males. An inflamed prostate can cause a variety of symptoms, including a frequent and urgent need to urinate and pain or burning when urinating. It is often associated with pelvic, groin or low back pain.

The most common causes of  acute prostatitis and chronic bacterial prostatitis, are by infection of the prostate. Some kinds of prostatitis might be caused when the muscles of the pelvis or the bladder don't work correctly. Typically the treatment involves antibiotics. While other primary causes should always be investigated, activated charcoal has been found to be helpful in controlling the infection in some individuals.

The doctors Thrash have found that charcoal has proven beneficial for inflammation of the prostate gland. They write in their book More Natural Remedies (page 91), "A hot charcoal enema promotes healing. Use one cup of hot water and one tablespoon of powdered charcoal. Insert into the rectum with a bulb syringe or an enema setup. Allow to remain as long as possible, even overnight if it can be retained."

“Over the past year it has become more and more difficult to pass urine. I was down to a trickle. I had been catheterized before and did not want to have to do that again! I read in your book [ page 160] about using a charcoal enema, so decided to experiment. I was only able to find some granular charcoal at a pet store in town. I ground that up in a blender to make a coarse powder. I mixed that with warm water and used an ear bulb syringe to give myself an enema. By the next day I was able to urinate! I continued to use a small warm charcoal enema on a weekly basis, and now I am able to urinate freely! Decided to order some charcoal powder to have on hand."
