Urinary tract infection, also known as cystitis or bladder infection, is a condition in which irritation occurs anywhere within the urinary tract, from the urethra all the way to the end of the bladder lining. This condition affects over two million people in the United States each year, most of whom are women. It is most common in women who are sexually active and women who have entered menopause. Urinary tract infection can be recurring, chronic, or relegated to a single episode which, when properly treated, does not return.
Symptoms of urinary tract infection include pain or burning sensations during urination, an increased need to urinate more frequently throughout the day and during the night, and pain located in the lower back and/or over the pubic region.
If left untreated, urinary tract infection can become serious and affect the kidneys. When this happens, additional symptoms can include blood in the urine, chills, fever, nausea, vomiting, back pain, and pain in the loins.
Note: If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, seek prompt medical attention.
The primary cause of urinary tract infection is bacteria that are unable to be eliminated from the urinary tract. The problem is not due to bacteria getting in to the urinary tract, but to bacteria not being able to get out.
There are natural cures for Urinary Tract Infection that do not involve the use of pharmaceutical drugs. These remedies involve restoring the biochemical balance of the body, and making dietary and lifestyle changes designed to improve one's general health.
