Urinary Track Infection (UTI)


You or many women you know may be or have suffered from a very common condition known as a UTI, or a urinary tract infection. Another common name is bladder infection. It’s an infection that affects part of the urinary tract. Although it is common, it is very uncomfortable to live with, creating symptoms that may include: burning with urination, an urge to urinate frequently, some pain above the pubic bone or in the lower back. You may have tried over-the-counter cranberry juice, rounds of antibiotics, or other home care remedies and found them somewhat useful for quelling the pain, but may still feel frustrated that they recur. One of the best ways to address these recurring infections is to get help from a holistic healthcare team that specializes in treating your unique constitution and underlying patterns. In TCM, these symptoms are often caused by an underlying pattern known as “Damp Heat in the Urinary Bladder”, but you may have other, specific reasons why you continue to suffer. Acupuncture and herbal medicine, along with botanical supplements and dietary recommendations are very effective at helping to address your unique medical history, lifestyle, diet, and present challenges to see why this pesky infection continues to ail you, to find a comprehensive healthcare solution, and help you not only to feel natural relief but also to prevent recurring infections.

 Some common Urinary Track Infection symptoms include:  burning with urination, an urge to urinate frequently, some pain above the pubic bone or in the lower back.
