UTI - causes, symptoms, herbal remedies for urinary tract health

Why are UTIs so common in women?

Urinary tract infections or UTIs will affect almost 60% of women. The reason being that a woman's urethra (tube that drains the bladder) is short and close to the rectum. As a result bacteria have a very short distance to travel to the urinary tract and quickly and easily cause infections. Movement such as intercourse and physical exertions also cause bacteria to move from the skin into the urethra.

What causes UTIs?

Bacteria present on the skin, rectal area and gastro-intestinal tract cause UTIs when they enter the urethra, bladder, ureters (tubes that drain urine from kidneys to the bladder) and the kidneys as well.

What are the symptoms of a UTI?

UTIs present various symptoms including a painful, burning sensation when passing urine, urge to urinate frequently even though there may be little to no output, urine may be unclear and smelling foul. In addition to these symptoms if there is fever, nausea or back pain, it may indicate a kidney infection.

What kind of tests are needed to confirm a UTI?

A urine sample analysis can confirm a UTI. There are also home test kits available at pharmacies. A doctor's office may also test to ensure that the symptoms are not being caused by STDs like chlamydia or gonorrhea.

How can a UTI be treated and prevented?

Conventionally antibiotics are prescribed to treat a UTI. However antibiotics work for only a short while and UTIs treated with antibiotics tend to recur. Antibiotics can cause bacteria to become resistant, to damage healthy bacteria and to damage the lining of the bladder. There are many home and herbal remedies that are safe and effective for UTIs.
  • Unsweetened cranberry juice is considered excellent for preventing bacteria from attaching to the bladder lining.
  • A blend of herbs that promotes the body's natural immune system against bacteria is also useful in a UTI. There are various ayurvedic herbs that are antimicrobial, diuretic, anti-pyretic and demulcent. Cystone is a blend of these herbs and is regarded as very effective in maintaining the health of the urinary tract.
  • Dandelion, Uva Ursi, Buchu, Nettles, Corn Silk are other herbs that are useful in a UTI.
  • Garlic and onions provide antibacterial benefits. Ginger helps to soothe the bladder lining.
  • Avoid swimming in pools or sitting in hottubs as bacteria tend to proliferate in these areas.
  • Avoid tight undergarments especially thongs. Loose cotton underwear that allow the genital areas to breathe are best.
  • Drink plenty of water to flush out bacteria but avoid sweetened drinks and sugary foods as sugar causes bacteria to grow.
  • Use of diaphragms and spermicidal products can contribute to bacterial infections. So avoiding these and opting for other birth control methods may help prevent UTIs from recurring
  • Urinating after intercourse and washing the area will help to flush away bacteria.
  • Always wipe from front to back. Using wet wipes to further keep the area clean will help reduce bacteria.
