Naturopathic Treatment for Chronic Urinary Tract Infections

Most urinary tract infections are caused by E.coli, which is a normal resident or the urinary tract bacterial flora. However, when it overgrows in the urinary tract, symptoms of infection can occur due to the inflammation that it causes. 

There are two main reasons as to why E.coli can overgrow and cause issues:

01

Poor immune function.

02

Disrupted urinary tract microflora. The urinary tract is lined with millions of bacteria, both good and bad. The good help keep the bad in check. Specific good bacteria in the urinary tract keep E.coli from overgrowing. When these good bacteria numbers are lowered, E.coli can overgrow, causing urinary tract infection symptoms.

Factors such as antibiotic use, food allergies/intolerances, nutrient deficiencies, hormonal imbalances and poor diet and lifestyle habits affect immune function and the health of urinary tract microflora, which is why these factors are associated with chronic urinary tract infections.

Therefore, the treatment of chronic urinary tract infections must address these underlying causes in order to improve immunity and re-establish the health of the urinary tract microflora that will help keep E.coli in check.
