Bladder and Urinary Health

Maintaining a healthy bladder and Urinary tract is important. Often there is  severe pain and discomfort from infections of the urinary tract and if this infection moves to the bladder it can be very troublesome. But, there are a few keys to keeping this area of the body healthy and free from infection. First and foremost is diet, reduce the amount of sugar, particularly refined sugar. Sugar feeds the unhealthy bacteria which is the culprit. Maintain a healthy bladder and Urinary tract by using herbs specifically designed for that region of the body.

More About Urinary Tract Infections

Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are fairly common and most
prevalent in females. The reason they are more common in females is
basically because of the difference in anatomy between males and
females. A bacterial organism is the most common culprit in UTIs; and a
majority of the time the bacteria gets transferred from the lower bowel
and into the opening of the urethra (this happens easier in females due
to the proximity between the two). The bacteria then typically travels
up the urethra and into the bladder. In severe cases, the bacteria can
migrate up into the kidney(s) and cause an infection there as well.

Other Causes for UTI’s

Some
other common causes include: sexual intercourse and yeast infections.
There are other factors that increase the likelihood of UTIs, but they
are rare. These include: pregnancy,
menopause, diabetes, and resisting the urge to urinate. Other factors
that contribute to a UTI or even preventing it from
resolving are: a urinary pH (acidity/alkalinity) that is too high or
low, not drinking enough clean water, excessive sugar consumption,
intestinal infections, and/or a weakened immune system.

Symptoms of a Urinary Tract Infection

Most women are probably familiar with the symptoms of a UTI
regardless of whether they’ve had one in the past. The most obvious is
painful or burning urination. Other possible symptoms include: pressure
in the lower pelvis, frequent or urgent need to urinate, needing to
urinate at night, and a change in the color (usually cloudy or bloody)
or odor of the urine.
