Acupuncture and Urinary Tract Infections

Urinary Tract Infections commonly referred to as the UTI is a very common ailment particularly amongst women and statistics indicate that women are at least 25 times more likely to suffer from this disorder than men. UTI is a serious health condition and needs to be taken care of quickly otherwise there is a high risk that the infection will spread to the kidneys causing irreversible damage. It is not yet clear as to why the percentage of women suffering from UTI is quite higher than in men. Some scientists believe that it is because of the shorter urethra in women although no conclusive evidence has been provided in this matter.

The common symptoms of UTI are the feeling to urinate frequently and a burning sensation during urination. It is also found that the symptoms vary from age to age  in women, it is usually characterized by no vaginal discharge.

Acupuncture offers an amazing treatment for urinary tract infections and has become a successful line of treatment for bladder infections. Several studies have been conducted on how acupuncture aids in the treatment of UTI and research performed in Norway suggest that the treatment with acupuncture reduces the infection by at least 50 percent. Evidences indicate that acupuncture has been very effective in decreasing the amount of urine that remains in the bladder after urination, which is the main cause of UTI. Acupuncture also aids in reducing the pain that is caused due to the infection.

Acupuncture considers UTI to be a damp or damp heat condition. The treatment of this disorder will actually pertain to one of these two aspects and will be treating the condition that have lead to UTI. Treatment to remove the damp and heat is applied to the points governing the spleen, urinary bladder and the kidneys channels.

Acupuncture aids in not only treating UTI but also assisting in stopping further recurrence. Usually, the retention of urine in the bladder even after urination is the main reason why UTI occurs and acupuncture treatments helps the urine in the bladder to be completely removed so that the possibility of urinary tract infection can be minimized.

Urinary Tract Infection is extremely painful and unpleasant. Prolonged treatment of this condition with acupuncture will aid in strengthening the immune system and will also aid in preventing the recurrence of urinary tract infections. Even if UTI is revealed, the pathological factors may still exist and thus it becomes necessary to undergo extended acupuncture treatments. This treatment line strongly advocates that it is extremely important to maintain a balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle which will together emphasize a healthy well-being. As UTIs are extremely common in women, it is suggested that women should abstain from excessive alcohol intake, spicy food, and dairy products and coffee intake as well.
