Cystitis is a very unpleasant condition to be affected with. Though not a very serious disorder, one should always consult the doctor whenever it is suspected.
Cystitis means inflammation of the urinary bladder. It is more common in women as compared to men and is usually caused by a urinary infection which progresses to the bladder.
Treatment should be sought right at the onset or else it can progress to the kidneys.
Antibiotics help in clearing the infection, but they do not prevent recurrence.
Once affected we need to be more cautious as it has a tendency to recur. Drinking plenty of water helps in flushing out any infection. Proper hygiene should be maintained.
Avoid products like bubble baths that could alter the acid alkaline balance.
Natural products like cranberry juice are very effective in treating cystitis. It helps in alkalizing the pH of the urinary system. It is time we give consideration to natural products for all our sufferings. This will help reduce medical bills and frequent visits to the doctor.
