Q. Can ayurveda help overcome UTI and other urologic problems?

Hello doctor,

Is it harmful to treat UTI with ayurveda? I am a 20-year-old male experiencing difficulty while urinating. According to a neurologist, my ultrasound results indicate a normal-sized prostate with no neurogenic component. The remaining issue appears to be an infection. The ultrasound also shows urethritis (infection of the urethra) and mild cystitis (bladder inflammation). Everything else, from the prostate to the kidneys, appears normal. While browsing health forums, I found information suggesting that using ayurveda for UTIs can lead to kidney disorders. Is this true? I am suffering from a UTI and experience incomplete emptying of my bladder and occasional frequency. I prefer not to take antibiotics. What should I do? Can ayurveda cure UTI? Also, can it cause kidney disorders? This problem is significantly impacting my quality of life and studies. Please advise me.

Thank you.



Welcome to icliniq.com.

I read your query and understand your concern.

It is important to note that taking Ayurvedic medicines does not cause kidney damage. However, it is essential to administer medications correctly, following the prescribed dosage and duration. Consulting with a physician will ensure safe usage. In the case of UTIs (Urinary tract infections), allopathic medicine often prescribes antibiotics, which also carry potential side effects. However, when taken under the guidance of a physician, the risk is minimized.

Now, addressing your concern, I suggest you stay well-hydrated by drinking plenty of fluids, particularly water. Fluids are beneficial for your UTI; avoid holding in urine when you feel the urge to urinate, maintain proper hygiene practices, ensure you get adequate sleep, and try to sleep before midnight.

Regarding medication, I suggest the following. Consult your physician and take medicines accordingly.

  1. Syrup Neeri(Purified Asphaltum 200 mg, Raphanus sativus ash 150 mg, Piper cubeba 100 mg, Rock salt 50 mg, Boerhaavia diffusa 500 mg, sugarcane extract 500 mg, Parmelia perlata 450 mg, Tribulus terrestris 450 mg, Crataeva nurvala 400 mg, Dolichos biflorus 400 mg, Mimosa pudica 100 mg, Solanum nigrum 100 mg, and Cucumis): Take two teaspoons with water twice daily for four weeks.

  2. Capsule Punarnava (Boerhaavia diffusa): Take one capsule twice daily with water for two weeks.

By following these guidelines consistently, you should experience positive results. It is crucial to manage stress levels, as excessive stress can worsen your condition.

I hope this helps. For further inquiries, feel free to consult me at icliniq.com.

Thank you.
