Urinary Tract

Urinary Tract Infection (also known as Urethritis) is a condition that affects the urethra. The urethra is the tube that carries urine from the bladder so it can be expelled from the body. The core cause of urethritis is usually infection. This can cause the urethra to become irritated and inflamed.

Both males and females can develop urethritis. However, females have a greater chance of developing the condition than males and it may affect people of all ages.

Generally, most cases of urethritis can be attributed to a bacteria or a virus. The same bacteria that can cause bladder and kidney infections can also infect the lining of the urethra and bacteria found naturally in the genital area may also cause urethritis if they enter the urinary tract.

Natural Health assistance may come in the form of traditional herbal support such as cranberry extract and/or probiotic support.
