Emotions that Block

Irritability and anger from our partner lead to urinary tract infections. Anxiety and fear also affect the health of the urinary tract.

Urinary tract infections from the point of view of Ayurveda

Urinary tract infections are the second most common type of infection in the body. If unhealthy bacteria build up anywhere in the urinary tract, this can cause an infection. And while urinary tract infections are much more common in women, men can also get them.

The urinary tract includes the parts of your body that make urine and carry it out. These parts include the kidneys and bladder, as well as the ureters and urethra. Ureters are the twin tubes that carry urine from your kidneys to your bladder. The urethra is the single tube that carries urine from the bladder, past the prostate, and to the tip of the penis.

There are usually two types of urinary tract infections:
1. An upper tract infection is one that happens in the ureters or kidneys.
2. A lower tract infection is one that happens in the bladder, prostate, or urethra.

Ayurveda dictates that urinary tract infections are caused by an imbalance of the Pitta dosha. Therefore, a good starting point for starting treatment is to avoid activities that aggravate the Pitta dosha.

Ayurvedic traditional treatment methods are passionate about treating conditions such as urinary tract infections with a holistic, natural approach.

How Ayurvedic doctors treat urinary tract infections

There are many traditional herbal medicines that can be prescribed to treat urinary tract infections, including Punarnavadi kashayam, Varanadi Kashayam, Tinospora, Ashwagandha, and Gokshura.

Ayurveda is tailored to each individual's unique body type. It is important to consult with our Ayurvedic practitioners rather than try to self-medicate. This way, you will be informed about the most effective recipe for your specific needs.

Your doctor will provide you with custom-tailored diet guidance to follow, which balances Pitta dosha and detoxifies the body.
