Homeopathy Tips for 9/29/09 Urinary Tract Infections

Urinary Tract Infections, commonly refered to as UTI, are any part of the urinary tract that has become inflamed or infected leading to pain or discomfort. In healthy people the urine is usually sterile. But when there is infection the urine will carry the infection out of the body and can be detected by urinalysis. UTI’s are refered to as upper or lower depending on where they occur in the urinary tract. Lower UTI’s are infections of the ureter (urethritis) or bladder (cystitis); upper UTI’s are infections od the ureters (ureteritis) or of the kidneys (pyelonephritis).

The causes of most UTI are bacterial infection. These can be acquired through the bloodstream or through contact with the opening of the urinary system through a man’s penis or a woman’s urethra at the vulva. Most bacterial infections are caused by E Coli. These types of infections are much more common in women than in men. Improper hygiene and sexual activity are biggest contributors to UTI’s. Occasionally virus, fungal infection and parasites may be the cause.

Urethritis is infection of the urethra, the channel that carries urine from the bladder out of the body. This is the first area that can become infected and is often transmitted from man to woman during intercourse. Improper cleaning after defecation can also lead to the spread of bacteria that can cause urethritis. Symptoms are usually pain during urination. Burning pains caused by acidic urine and discharge, more easily seen in men than women, often are the first signs. There is usually a more frequent urging for urination. Sometimes it feels as if the urination is not complete and the desire persists without the passing of urine.

Cystitis is infection of the bladder. Cystitis is usually a progression of urethritis but not necessarily. For women the short length of the ureters to the bladder make cystitis  a more common occurence. Pregnant women especially are prone to cystitis. Prostate inflammation and enlargement can lead to a greater occurence of cystitis in men. Sometimes the bladder can become inflamed without infection. This is called interstitial cystitis.

Cystitis produces similar pains and sensations as urethritis. The urgent need to urinate can lead to involuntary urination. Pain is usually felt above the pubic bone and in the lower back. Fever is rarely present. Often the urine becomes cloudy and can have an odor. In more sever cases there can be blood in the urine.

Allopathic treatment is almost always antibiotics. The antibiotic kills the bacterial infection, but does not treat any of the reasons the bodies immune system was unsuccessful in fighting the infection itself. This is where homeopathy can be very effective in inspiring the body to heal. Drinking plenty of water to dilute the urine and flushing the kidneys is important. Cranberry juice (unsweetened) can be helpful in acting as a diuretic and flushing the bladder and kidneys.

Commonly indicated remedies are ;

  • Cannabis Sativa – Sensation of drops of water falling through the urethra. Urethra very sensetive to touch, cannot walk with legs together. Tearing pain along urethra in a zig-zag direction.
  • Cantharis – The most common remedy when there is great discomfort and blood in the urine. retention and suppression of urine. Urine as if molten lead and the most intolerable pains.
  • Causticum – when there is paralysis of the bladder from long retention. urination involuntary when laughing, sneezing or coughing.
  • Equisetum –  Pain in the bladder not relieved by urination. Intolerable urge to urinate and pain at the close of urination. Large quantities of urine are passed without relief. Sharp, cutting, burning pain.
  • Gelsemium – incontinence from paralysis similar to Causticum. Tenesmus of the bladder.

  • Staphysagria – For UTI following intercourse, especially for newlyweds. Great burning and discomfort during urination. 

This a an incomplete list of remedies that may be indicated. By using the above rubrics you could have a good collection of remedies to investigate for most cases of UTI. Study the remedies further from Materia Medica. As in all cases, you must repertize the case fully and including any prominent mind symptoms or etiology for the case. Persistent symptoms can be dangerous if left untreated. If infections become systemic and there is a septic condition of the blood, the person can get very sick, very quickly and death is possible. As in all medical conditions, if homeopathic treatment fails, seek the help of a medical doctor.

    Hello Khalid,
    You must investigate in your local area. I can help with homeopaths in USA and Canada only.

    Urinary Tract Infection(UTI) is a common disease in Bangladesh.Most women suffer from this disease.Ur article is very much informative and instructive.It is very much useful to me. I could learn many new things out of this.Thank u very much for sending such a piece of medical document.Thank u again.

  3. Sarah Cordish on

    UTI plagues almost all persons with paralysis because the bladder does not empty completely or there is use of a catheter.
    I witnessed an amazing cure of a man, quadriplegic, with persistent UTI and accompanying high fever. The E. coli in the bladder infection had become resistant to ALL antibiotics.
    Two weeks after taking a dose of high potency Pulsatilla the man came down with a fever which lasted three months!
    After 3 months the fever remitted; and the man has remained free of UTI for over 20 years!
    Fortunately this person had the patience to wait out the fever.

  5. Bobby on

    Hello Robert,

    I’m a bit confused right now. You and other homeopathic practitioners have pointed out that in order to restore a “sick” person to health a homeopath has to get what is asking to be healed for that person. So I got that two people can have the same diagnose (UTI, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Hernia, etc..) but to be healed with different homeopathic remedies, depending on what’s asking to be healed for them!

    To make it more specific, a friend of mine got a UTI some time ago. I noticed that her symptoms came out right after a very stressful situation for her at her job (she literary felt the pain minutes after the stressful conversation with her boss). When she went to the allopatic doctor, he told her all these possible causes, almost all of them related to hygiene.
    I get that hygiene is important, but I don’t really think it caused the UTI! It probably helped for her suffering to be manifested as a UTI, but I might be wrong.

    Can you please help me get that?

    Best regards,


    • Robert on

      Hi Bobby,
      The stressful incident at work was the “open door” for her body to respond to the bacteria that was already present in her body before the stressful incident. Hygiene is important, but the body will use the bacteria as a way to express the mental/emotional conflict into the physical. Now after the incident she has UTI and the symptoms. This is why the reason a person gets sick is so very important in homeopathy. No two people get sick for the same reasons. To help this person we would need to understand what she felt in regards to the stressful incident and apply good homeopathic principles using her emotional response and specific UTI symptoms to come to the remedy. In the end the body does not lie. It will always reveal an inner conflict into the physical to try to heal it. This is why we must understand the person deeply to prescribe accurately.

      Thanks for your question,
      Robert Field

        I get it. Thank you

  6. Dr. Harsh Gajjar on

    Respected sir,
    I m very thankful 2 u for giving tips of homoeopathy. Sir i have an query,there r many homoeopaths doing combination practice in homoeopathy,how its work? and is it a truli homoeopathic?

    Hello Dr Harsh,
    I do not use combination remedies. They can have some efficacy but it is not good homeopathy. It is much better to take the case and prescribe acurately than to use the “shotgun” approach and hope you hit the target. It really does not require any homeopathic knowlege or skill to prescribe a combination remedy with a medical diagnostic indication. It is better to be a good homeopath and prescribe accordingly.
    Thanks for your question,
    Robert Field

  7. Dr.Latif Shaikh on

    I can say with an extensive experience that Homoeopathic combinations work wonderfully in most of the cases.

  8. Yvonne on

    Good rubrics says alot. My husband has Glomerulonephritis and is on cortison after trying homeopathy. Somehow it has improved 60% and hope that after a significant improvement he will decide to stop the cortison and continue with homeopathy, cause I know theres no way this can be solved.

    Hi Yvonne, Good rubrics say so much more than a lot. They are key to any successful case. Now that your husbands dis-ease is being treated by an allopathic method, the symptoms will have been modiofied some. It will be necessary to really investigate the original expression of his disease to select the best rubrics to find the remedy that will cure. Good luck. Thanks for sharing.

  11. MONICA on

    Hello, Robert!
    I know a case that lasts for about 50 years of E. coli UTI. This lady tried anything & everything during all this years even homeopathy but the symptoms are coming back at the smallest stress or unusual event in her life. Of course, during the years, some other illnesses occured – she also has a very bad osteoporosis – and it’s kind of challenging to start a treatment. On the other hand, she has quite strong beliefs and she makes a beautiful case based on mind symptoms but if nothing miraculous happens after 1 dose (no matter the type of treatment) she has some strange kind of satisfaction that she can’t be helped and – of course – nothing will (ever) work for her.
    Have a nice day, M

    hello dr.
    your sites are full of informations which i believe every practitioner should go through & apply them in their daily practice.however i would appreciate a topic written by you on HAIR & SKIN CARE TREATMENTS IN HOMEOPATHY.

    • Robert on

      Hello Dr.,
      There are so many skin conditions and remedies for skin indications it would be a lenghty article. Remember the skin is the largest organ in our body and is often the place the vital force can express through. When the whole person is considered for a remedy the skin becomes a part of the whole. I will think about some skin conditions that are common and that you could benefit from more information.Thanks,

    Hi Robert,
    enjoyed reading through your article on UTI’s. My daughter, who is 10 yrs old, has sufferred them on and off since she was about 3(around the time that i started toilet training). Initially, she used to run really high temp’s with no symptoms of a cold or UTI other then the urgancy to urinate. I sort the help of a homeopath, after a few courses of anti-biotics and when the specialist told me that I should get a cystogram, (did not the like the idea of radio-active dye injected into her!)whom we have been seeing for approx 4 yrs now and there is always e-coli, hence, an infection whenever her urine is tested. The only ‘symptom’ now for the past few years is the urgency to urinate occasionally a strong odour and or a ‘cutting’ feeling. I and the homeopaths are baffled by it. As a parent I worry alot. Any advise or recommendation would be greatly appreciated.
    Regards Romana

  28. how to cure bladder infection on

    I have learned new things from the blog post. One other thing
    to I have seen is that in many instances, FSBO sellers will
    probably reject a person. Remember, they will prefer not to ever use
    your expert services. But if a person maintain a gradual, professional
    relationship, offering guide and keeping contact for about four
    to five weeks, you will usually be capable of win a discussion.
    From there, a house listing follows. Thank

    Dear Sir;
    My husband is suffering from prostatitis since 2008, his prostate is infected by e-coli and it seems that antibiotic has not been effective in killing it. Lately he started a homeopathic treatment it helped him for six month then he’s back. The treatment helped in decreasing the high fever and every time a different type of e-coli. Any suggestions??? Thank you.
