Healing Nutrition for UTI and Bladder Infections

While it is more men who tend to develop kidney stones, women have the higher rates of urinary tract infections. Bladder infections affect one million Americans, 90 percent of these women, and are the most common cause of women seeking medical attention. Bladder incontinence affects 13 million American adults each year.

Your urinary tract includes the kidneys, ureters, bladder, and urethra. Of these organs, infections of the bladder are the most common problem. You pretty much know you have a bladder infection when you experience

  • A burning sensation when you urinate.
  • A feeling to urinate constantly.
  • The urge to urinate but cannot.
  • Leaking urine.
  • Urine that is cloudy, dark, or bloody.

A women’s urethra is shorter than a man’s, giving bacteria a shorter distance to reach the bladder. Another problem is that the urethra is located close to a woman’s rectum, where bacteria can easily move up the urethra and enter the bladder. Not the most pleasant experience, although not as painful as kidney stones, bladder infections can be treated holistically with herbs and tinctures.

I take magnesium because I am low in that. I didn't know it did anything for the bladder but glad it does.
