Urinary tract infections (UTIs) or Cystitis
The kidneys and bladder are prone to a variety of infections, which can occur when bodily defences are down. In cystitis there is burning pain on passing urine, as well as pain in the groin before, during and just after, urination. Cystitis may also have feelings of urgency and frequency and an intense desire to pass urine, even though the bladder has just been emptied. When Cystitis has been treated with antibiotics, the inner ecology is then disturbed and it is vital to restore the beneficial bacterial flora with live yoghurt and probiotics. I have found that herbal medicine and nutritional supplements can support resolution of urinary tract infections and successfully strengthen the body so that they do not recur.
