Condition analysis:
Cranberry has been shown to counter the ease with which bacteria adhere to the surface of the bladder lining. This makes it harder for them to establish themselves in the bladder and cause infections.

Products containing Cranberry are therefore favoured for prevention of bladder infections. Most people prefer to take a supplement containing cranberry to drinking cranberry juice or eating cranberries because pure cranberries are extremely tart in flavour, and making them more palatable involves the addition quantities of refined sugar, which in itself promotes infections.

Uva-ursi is a herbal remedy that has a remarkable effect on the bladder. It is bladder-specific, in that it works specifically in the bladder rather than anywhere else in the body.

Uva-ursi travels through the body without doing anything, until it reaches the bladder. There it changes its chemical structure, being hydrolysed to produce a substance called hydroquinone that disinfects the bladder. This disinfecting action is not commonly accompanied by any side effects and it does not cause thrush.

For this reason Uva-ursi is popular for dealing with attacks of cystitis and for women who have suffered from recurrent urinary tract infections.

Good Hygiene: Make sure you urinate as frequently necessary to prevent your urine from resting in your bladder for a long period of time (as this allows bacteria to multiply). Drink plenty of fluids to ensure that any bacteria in your bladder get flushed out. Try to empty your bladder completely every time you urinate. When going to the toilet, make sure you wipe front to back (and not back to front) to avoid transferring germs to the opening of the urethra.

In order to relieve pain from cystitis, you can use a heat pad or a warm bottle on your tummy. Alternatively, you can sit in a bath or a shallow bucket filled with warm water to ease the pain. Do not add anything else to the bath, unless your doctor suggested it.
