Here are some recipes: Take thuja shoots, bearberry leaves, hernia grass, birch buds (5 grams of each of the ingredients in 1 liter of water) and boil for 7 minutes. Drink a well-warmed broth during the day. Brew 2 teaspoons of yarrow in 200 ml of boiling water. After the product has been infused for an hour, filter. Drink 50 ml before meals 4 times a day.

If there are no serious signs of the disease, then procedures can be performed to reduce the frequency of urination. You can do them yourself by strengthening your pelvic floor muscles. Exercises can be performed anywhere and anytime, most importantly, constantly. Squeeze your crotch as if you would like to trap gases. In this case, the rest of the muscles of the abdomen, buttocks, hips should be relaxed. The muscles of the perineum should remain in a tense state for up to ten seconds, but start at a time that is comfortable for you. Do 10 reps, then rest and start squeezing again. Don't tire yourself out. With age or after experiencing severe stress, muscles lose their elasticity and become weak, so they should be trained and strengthened.
