May 20, 2018 Cystitis / UTI
Cystitis is a painful urinary tract infection which causes a burning sensation when going to the toilet. Sufferers feel an urgent need to pee and feel generally unwell. Most cases go away after a few days without medical intervention. Many people believe cranberry juice helps to relieve symptoms but there is no scientific basis in that suggestion. Men and women suffer from the condition but it is more common in women because their urethra and anus are close together. It is a bacterial infection which responds well to antibiotics. You risk contracting a kidney infection if you don’t treat your symptoms. Natural ways to treat cystitis include drinking plenty of liquids, taking over the counter painkillers, resting and using a hot water bottle. Whether cranberry juice actually helps to treat cystitis is still up to debate but some sufferers believe it works. We will look into the science of the infection and the properties of cranberry juice to see if there is any truth in the connection. Drinking lots of cranberry juice increases your liquid intake which ultimately relieves symptoms in the end.Cystitis is inflammation of the bladder due to a bacterial infection. It causes sufferers to feel generally unwell, have a fever, painful urination, an urgency to pee and passing bloody or cloudy urine. Causes include wiping from forward to back after going to the toilet, sexual intercourse, using a diaphragm or using tampons. Antibiotics successfully treat cystitis and most women suffer it infrequently. Some women are sadly more prone to it than others and repeatedly have it. The following conditions increase your risk of having it; not emptying your bladder, pregnancy, cancer treatment, diabetes, menopause, using highly scented body wash and taking recreational drugs such as ketamine. Intestinal cystitis has similar symptoms but is due to bladder damage and requires different treatment. (Source: NHS.UK)
