Urinary Tract Infection
Doctor Answers (4) on Urinary Tract Infection
In conventional medicine antibiotics are commonly used to treat recurrent urinary tract infections but they are not always the answer. Antibiotics are often effective in acute UTIs but their long-term use in chronic UTIs rarely prevents recurrences and is usually followed by development of fungal infections and antibiotic resistance.
Homeopathic medicines boost the immune system and enhance resistance to infection. They are effective with no side effects and are safe
Homeopathy also provides a particularly effective treatment for interstitial cystitis, although there is no cure in conventional medicine
There are two types of homeopathic medicines for UTIs - medicines for quick relief of symptoms and constitutional medicines to prevent recurrences.
