natural remedies for cystitis-Cantharis 200. The best homeopathic remedies for UTI.
Anyone can get a urinary tract infection, from adults to children but as women, we are prone to UTIs.
The joy of being a woman! with a shorter urethra than men, this means that bacteria can reach the bladder more easily. Also, the opening of the urethra is close to the anus where bacteria thrives.
Furthermore, sexual activity increases the chances of bacteria for women as intercourse introduces bacteria into the woman's urinary tract.
The term Honeymoon Cystitis is a term used for women who develop UTIs after having sexual intercourse.
But wait a minute. Is a UTI the same as CYSTITIS?
The answer to that is all infections of the Urinary Tract are UTIs but the infection can affect different parts of the urinary system and then, it is given a different name:
Kidneys- Kidney infection
Symptoms of a UTI can include:
This is my #1 remedy for cystitis including Honeymoon Cystitis. The symptoms of cantharis tend to match most cases of cystitis when first acquired.
Inflammation is very violent if left to develop and pains are cutting, smarting or burning- very painful urination-. Burning raw feeling when urinating and when not.
Kidney region is very sensitive.
Intolerable urging to urinate from smallest quantity in the bladder.
Urine scalds and is passed drop by drop.
Pain is worse when urinating but also before and after.
You may pass a lot of blood when urinating that it looks like you are bleeding, although this remedy will also help cystitis where there is no blood involved.
I love Staphysagria as it is such a woman's remedy. No wonder why it is so often used for these types of complaints.
This is the #1 for Honeymoon Cystitis. This is the best remedy for people that develop cystitis after having sexual intercourse.
This type of cystitis may also start after a disappointment or feeling let down or humiliated by someone.
It is also a great remedy for urinary problems during pregnancy or after pregnancy.
Feeling of pressure around the bladder, as if it did not fully empty.
Urging and pain after urination which is better by heat or getting warm.
Feeling as if a drop of urine were rolling continuously along the urethra.
Thuja is a remedy which is very effective in UTIs but very little used in acute situations.
It is one of the top ones used by the Banerjee's and I have found it to be very valuable as well.
If you need Thuja you may:
Feel as if the bladder feels paralysed, must wait for urination. You may feel like urinating but it is like tape was preventing it.
Have to urinate 5-6 times before the bladder is empty.
Notice that the urine foams and remains long in the water.
Have a swollen and inflamed urethra and have a constant, painful desire to urinate.
This remedy is very useful for cystitis that comes after you have got your feet cold or wet. It is a specific remedy for that.
Taken soon after you start to feel the need to urinate more often and with pain in the lower abdomen, it can abort the process entirely!

REMEDIES FOR CHRONIC UTIS
This is a remedy associated with a feeling of bearing down above the pubis.
Like a feeling that something is coming down and you would need to push it up.
Therefore, this is a good remedy for prolapse of the uterus or the bladder that is causing recurrent UTIs. Also, a remedy to think of for menopausal women or problems that started after giving birth.
You may need to wear a pad as urine scapes easily when coughing, sneezing, a shock, etc.
You may get the urge to urinate from pressure on the bladder.
You may need to get up several times at night to urinate and the urine is slow to come.
This is for more established UTS affecting the whole system.
If you need Medorrhinum you may have:
A fishy, ammoniacal odour of the urine.
A feeling of bubbling in the right kidney and renal region. Renal colic and pain in the ureters as if you were passing a stone.
An urge to urinate every hour or so with slow flow.
Oedema due to malfunction of the urinary system.
Chronic or recurrent cystitis where there are also some hormonal changes or imbalance.
For instance, cystitis may occur with the menstrual cycle or the problem may have started with puberty.
So this remedy is also useful for recurrent cystitis during pregnancy.
The person needing this remedy cries easily and is generally quite tearful. You will need a lot of reassurance and attention in general, feel better when in the company of others and you generally feel much better after a good cry.
You may also have:
Pains around the bladder region extending to the thighs and pelvis.
The need to urinate when lying on your back.
You may experience soreness and burning feeling around the external side of the meatus which feels better by cold bathing in water.
