When cystitis occurs, women often begin to be treated with medicines or herbs, not suspecting that it is easy to help the trouble by adjusting the diet.
Almost always, inflammation of the mucous membrane of the bladder is accompanied by a functional disorder of the organ. Among the causes of the disease are infectious (Escherichia coli, Trichomonas, viruses) and non-infectious factors (hormone imbalance in women, excessive use of acute or acidic foods, improperly selected hygiene products for the intimate area, as well as neglect of hygiene).
Since adequate treatment is aimed at eliminating the cause of the disease, patients are prescribed serious antibacterial, hormonal, and antiparasitic agents. However, their effectiveness can be significantly enhanced with a special diet.
Thoughtful nutrition can stop the multiplication of pathogens, as well as reduce the manifestations of intoxication. In addition, the products recommended for cystitis will help prevent the appearance of crystals in the urinary tract, as well as increase the activity of antibiotics.
In order to reduce intoxication with cystitis patients, urologists recommend arranging several vegetarian days, including mashed vegetables, baked apples in the oven, as well as fresh berries and fruits in the diet. In addition, it is extremely important to increase the amount of liquid you drink during the day, giving preference to water, fruit drinks, juices and herbal infusions.
To stop the growth of bacteria, you need to drink drinks from berries that are rich in hippuric and benzoic acids. Wells of these substances are cranberries and lingonberries. Carrot and spinach juice will also come to the rescue.
Peppers, ketchup, horseradish, mustard, onions, parsley, and mushrooms can only worsen symptoms such as urinary incontinence and increased urge to urinate.
However, remember that the most positive effect of the diet will have only with an integrated approach to treatment. And do not forget that any treatment should be carried out under the supervision of a specialist doctor.
