Herbal Medicines For Bladder Problems

Cystitis and urinary tract infection are both caused by an inflammation of the lining of the bladder and the urinary tract. This is usually the result of a bacterial infection spread from the anus either through poor hygiene or through sexual intercourse.


Both men and women can suffer from cystitis, but women are usually more susceptible due to their shorter urinary tract. Bacteria can reach the bladder more quickly. Symptoms include painful urination, cloudy urine, with fever and backache in severe cases.

It can also be caused by vaginal infections such as thrush, sexually transmitted diseases, and vaginal deodorants. Bruising (as a result of sexual intercourse or childbirth) can also trigger the condition.


Diet and Nutrition Drink lots of water, camomile tea and cranberry juice. Cut out alcohol, coffee, and all acidic fruit juices. Apply live yogurt to the vagina to help "recolonize" it with healthy bacteria.

Herbal Medcine

An infusion of yarrow, couch grass, and buchu are recommended.


Cantharis 6c and Staphysagria 6c are beneficial.


Sandalwood, juniper, lavender, or bergamot ­used for a stomach massage, or in the bath ­will help to ease pain and discomfort.

Acupressure This can also relieve pain.

Urinary Tract Infection All parts of the urinary tract may develop infections. The infection causes inflammation of the affected part, and the clinical syndrome associated with inflammation of the part tends to be characteristic.

Inflammation of the urethra (urethritis) causes pain when water is passed. If there is infection present, pus or blood may also be evident in the opening of the urethra.

Urethritis in women is commonly caused by bruising during intercourse rather than infection.

Urethritis in men is more often caused by sexually transmitted infections such as gonorrhea or chlamydia. Such infections do not usually manifest any symptoms in women, but it is important that both partners are adequately treated to prevent long-term complications such as infertility. Urethritis usually lasts for two or three days.
