Natural ways to treat cystitis
Cystitis is the name given to a urinary infection where a person’s bladder is inflamed.
Many individuals, especially women, will be troubled with cystitis at some point in their life.
It can be caused by either an infection or damage to the bladder.
Women suffering may feel that they need the toilet a lot more often, although they won’t actually be able to wee. When they are able to go to the toilet, this can be very painful and stingy.
Antibiotics are one way of curing the infection, but often waiting for the doctor can be a long and arduous process - many women want immediate relief.
There are some homeopathic remedies you can try to help beat the bug.
Increase fluid consumption
As with many bodily problems, drinking plenty of liquids has the ability to flush away any infections.
Keeping your water intake at at least eight glasses a day is thought to alleviate the pain, as well as fighting the infection quicker.
Herbal teas and drinks are thought to really help soothe the pain. They are jam-packed with antioxidants that are sworn fighters of infections.
Many teas also help to get rid of bloating - something that those suffering from cystitis may feel.
Vitamins and supplements
Vitamin C is thought to combat cystitis by using its healing properties to restore your body back to its normal and healthy self.
Additionally, vitamin C has been known to improve your skin texture and immune system, so there really is no harm in trying it out!
Superberries are called super for a reason. As well as fighting the signs of aging, berries are the most popular combatant of cystitis.
Many women think that cranberry juice in particular is an effective healer.
Superberries are the perfect addition to your daily juice, smoothie or as sprinkles on your breakfast cereal.

- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) Carrot Oil contains Beta Carotene and Vitamin A which, by eliminating toxic build-up and repairing sun-damaged skin, helps to improve skin complexion. Antiseptic properties also assist in reducing breakouts and the formation of acne. It is also great for hydrating the skin. So mixing it with Jojoba oil may help. I would also recommend mixing Jojoba oil and Tamanu oil as both have great moisturising properties and are great for acne prone skin. Hope this helps!
- Carrot Oil for Face I have acne. I have been using jojoba oil only but I noticed my face is sometimes dry. If I add carrot oil will it help moisturize my face and clear the spots or should I join argan oil to the mix?
- Ashwagandha Dosage for AnxietyI found a supplement that is 500 mg, 120 Count. Do you recommend taking 1 capsule daily? or 2 capsules? I also take thyroid medication and an SSRI among other things.
- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHello Dia, Thank you for your comment. Research is confusing when it comes to testosterone levels with PCOS and using Ashwagandha. As it is an adaptogenic herb, it will 'adapt' to the environment of the body to support hormonal balance. A huge therapeutic benefit of Ashwagandha is its ability to balance cortisol levels, which could improve stress and symptoms of PCOS also. If you are currently using any medications or under medical supervision, please seek advice from your practitioner to ensure there are no interactions. I hope this helps :)

- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHi Simie, thank you for your message. Ashwagandha is safe to be taken alongside other supplements including Vitamin E and Calcium. We would advise you check with your GP for interactions with estrogen medications for menopause as there are different variations of these medications. I hope this helps :)
