Urinary Tract Infection Treatment (Mutrakrichcha)

What is Urinary Tract Infection (UTI)?

Urinary tract infection is becoming one of the most serious and common infections affecting millions worldwide. Urinary tract infection in Ayurveda is described as the imbalance of the Pitta Dosha and subsequently. UTI is the infection of the urinary system which includes the kidney, bladder, urethra, and ureters but the most affected parts are the lower tracts. Urinary tract infections typically occur when bacteria enter the urinary tract through the urethra and begin to multiply themselves in the bladder which causes trouble while peeing. This infection is more common in women than men due to anatomical differences which is the smaller size of the urethra in females making it easier for bacteria to invade the bladder.

There are mainly two types of UTI known one of which is cystitis and other urethritis which are associated with the bladder and urethra respectively. Doctors try treating urinary tract infections with antibiotics which can easily be treated in Ayurveda. Ayurvedic treatment for UTI from Dr. Sharda Ayurveda treats you naturally. By increasing the water intake, adding more fluids in diet, maintaining personal hygiene, adopting a healthy lifestyle one easily recovers followed by Ayurvedic treatment. Within just a few days of treatment, one can feel the difference.

Causes of Urinary Tract Infection

  • Infection in the Bladder- The reason for infection in the bladder can be having diabetes, and unhealthy sexual intercourse. It is seen to happen in pregnant women commonly due to hormonal changes leading to relaxing of the bladder muscles and thus delay in a clearing.
  • Constipation- Due to constipation people face difficulty in emptying their stomach, therefore, making way for bacteria to grow and cause infection. Also uncontrolled feces i.e., loose stools which may have bacteria can easily be able to make their way to the vagina.
  • Holding Urine for Longer- Most people get UTI if they control urine for a longer period of hours which gives way to bacteria already present in the bladder to overgrow and thus causing infection.
  • Dehydration- Keeping your body dehydrated for a longer time would lead to less urination thereby infections in the body are not flushed out.
  • Lack of Personal Hygiene- Not maintaining the vaginal flora or using the feminine products inappropriately or without guidance can majorly cause the urinary tract infection.

What are the symptoms for Urinary Tract Infection

  • Irritating and Painful Urination- The condition is called dysuria where the persons experience a burning sensation, and itchiness while passing urine.
  • Pelvic Pain- Pelvic is the lower abdominal area of the women which also includes the sexual organs. Pelvic is the house of bladder, womb, and ovaries therefore pain in any of these areas can be a possible symptom of the urinary tract infection.
  • Strong Odor Urine- Urine contains water and a small concentration of the waste or byproducts of our body. It is seen urine with foul, fishy, and sweet smells can be an indicator of UTI.
  • Rectal Area- Swelling and inflammation of the prostate gland is called prostatitis. This will cause pain between the scrotum and anus or the lower back, penis, or testes.
  • Nausea- It means that bacteria that are responsible for the cause of UTI have made their path to reach the kidneys. Due to which kidneys get inflamed and which is known as pyelonephritis. This infection is serious because it directly affects and damages the kidneys.


  • It is suggested to avoid caffeine-based products in UTI and switch to Ayurvedic herbal tea and juices like cranberry and blueberry.
  • It is believed that Garlic is one the most common herb that exhibits anti-bacterial property thus keeping one away from the infection.
  • Practicing yoga and meditation followed with Ayurvedic treatment has shown effective results in treating urine infection.
  • Ayurveda is known to be the natural and simpler way of restoring the body’s bacterial balance. This is so by aiding the healthy bacteria and destroying the harmful ones.
  • Ayurvedic herbal medicine for urinary tract infections is known to have phytoextracts (plant extracts) showing favorable results in treating urinary disorders. This could be an alternative to the pathogens which are resistant to antibiotics for treating urinary tract infection.
