Cystitis prevention – what’s the best approach?

HELP PREVENT CYSTITIS THIS WINTER WITH OUR 4 SIMPLE STEPS:
1. DRINK PLENTY OF WATER

Plain, still water is the key, so… teas and coffees don’t count! If you’re desperate for some flavour, add some fresh herbs or fruit slices for a hint of natural sweetness and aroma, with an added injection of antioxidants as a welcome bonus. Your digestive system as well as your urinary tract will thank you.

2. GO TO THE TOILET REGULARLY

Did you know that symptoms of interstitial cystitis can often have links with constipation? Drink your water and eat plenty of wholefood fibre to help you keep going to the loo regularly, and thereby help to keep your gut and surrounding areas a bit happier.

3. SAY ‘NO’ TO SUGAR

Naturally occurring sugars found in whole fruit and dried fruit are fine, just so long as you’re not consuming them in excess. The ones you want to watch for are the more refined sources of sugar, which are often hidden in processed foods, and even the so-called ‘healthier options’ such as flavoured yoghurts. These can risk feeding any lurking bad bacteria.

4. INTRODUCE CRANBERRY INSTEAD

Cranberry contains a special component called d-mannose, which can handily help to prevent bad bacteria from sticking to the lining of your urinary tract. Opt for capsules or a good quality, low-sugar juice such as Biotta Cranberry in order to help you achieve a more therapeutic dose of the good stuff.

Research insight.
Cranberry may have similar protective, antibacterial benefits in other areas, such as in the stomach or throughout your digestive tract.1

AND FOR TREATMENT?

To help manage cystitis symptoms if infection strikes, keep up with the preventative steps as detailed above, plus:

1. Look after your immune system. Your immune system is a key player in managing cystitis. We rely on our immune system not only to initially detect the bugs that are making toilet trips uncomfortable, but also to then pull out all the stops in order to eradicate them. If you suffer from recurrent cystitis, it could signal that your immune system needs a little extra support.

2. Take Uva-ursi frequently. Uva-ursi is handily combined with Echinacea in A.Vogel’s Uva-ursi & Echinacea Cystitis Drops, making for a remedy like no other. You can take the tincture formula up to 5 times daily in a small splash of water to help get on top of tricky urinary symptoms caused by cystitis.
