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!
