How to treat urinary tract infections

UTI is a disease that many women suffer from. Affecting any part of the urinary system, namely the kidneys, urethra or bladder, it can cause severe pain that prevents a person with it from doing their usual daily tasks.

To get rid of it, without resorting to drugs whose side effects are not without danger to health, here is a natural remedy with a fast and very effective effect.

Female urinary tract infection

Women are more often affected by UTI compared to men, as the urethra in them is shorter than in men, which makes it easier for bacteria to access the bladder. In fact, it is estimated that 40% of women have already suffered, at least once in their life, from a urinary tract infection.

Types of urinary tract infections

There are 3 types of urinary tract infections depending on the part of the urinary system affected:

Cystitis

It is the best known and most common urinary tract infection. It is an inflammation of the bladder caused by an increase in Escherichia Coli, a bacterium in the digestive tract present in the anal area.

This passes through the urethra to reach the bladder which, if it does not empty completely during urination, presents an environment favorable to its proliferation. Usually, cystitis is also accompanied by urethritis.

Urethritis

It is an infection that affects the urethra, and is quite common in men. It is usually caused by certain bacteria such as chlamydia and gonococcus (bacteria that cause gonorrhea, commonly known as “hot piss”).

This type of UTI is sexually transmitted as a result of unprotected sex with an infected partner.

Pyelonephritis

This infection is more dangerous than the first two because it affects the kidney cavity responsible for collecting urine, and even the kidney itself.

It can be the result of poorly treated or untreated cystitis, since bacteria in the bladder can travel to the kidneys and multiply there, creating a kidney infection. It often affects women, especially during pregnancy.

Symptoms of urinary tract infection

Cystitis and urethritis are characterized by a burning sensation during urination and a more frequent need to urinate. In addition, urine may change color, become smelly, or contain blood.

Pyelonephritis can be accompanied by fever (39 ° to 40 ° C), chills and lower back pain. It can also have the same symptoms as cystitis.

To treat UTI, doctors always prescribe antibiotics. However, these are not without side effects and can cause intestinal and vaginal disturbances. It would therefore be better to replace them, as much as possible, with a natural remedy as effective, but without side effects.
