Cystitisposted on 18 November 2007 | posted in Health Tips
There are two main types of cystitis (inflammation of the bladder). One is caused by a bacterial infection and is sometimes call urinary tract infection. The other is called interstitial cystitis that has an unknown cause.
It is more common in women than men, due to women having a shorter urethra (tube from the bladder to the outside), but the treatment would be the same.
The diagnosis of urethritis may be given. This can be caused by bladder trauma that is thought to be caused by sexual activity.
Symptoms are frequent urging to urninate when there is little urine in the bladder, burning pain on urination and general discomfort in the bladder area. Sometimes urine can appear cloudy and blood could be present. Medical advice should be sought as untreated, it could lead to kidney damage.
Advice is to drink copious amounts of water, either hot or cold. Avoid tea or coffee. Sometimes cystitis can be caused by food intolerances that can cause irritation of the bladder. Try eliminating citrus fruits and tomatoes. Cystitis can also be attributed to a wheat, dairy and sugar intolerances. Try avoiding some of these foods for about 2 weeks and not any changes in symptoms. Visit a kinesiologist who will be able to help determine food intolerances if doing it yourself brings no relief. Your practitioner may be able to carry out a gentle procedure to help stop the bladder from going into spasm.
Other causes can be bacterial infection, in which case, taking Cranberry and Buchu Herbal Combination and Pau D'Arco Extract (Lapacho) can be very helpful. If there is a persistence in symptoms and your medical doctor has ruled out an infection, other causes of cystitis could be a yeast infection such as candida albicans or parasites.
