Have you ever suffered from the pain and discomfort of cystitis? If you have, you’ll know how unpleasant it can be. It’s a common condition often triggered by an infection, causing inflammation of the bladder and urethra. It usually clears up on its own within a few days and is more common in women than men.

Symptoms include:

  • A frequent urge to urinate
  • Pain in the lower abdomen
  • Burning and stinging when peeing, and dark, cloudy, strong-smelling urine.
  • Difficulty passing urine
  • A low fever
  • Blood in the urine
  • Sensations of pressure or fullness in the bladder
  • Cramping pains in the abdomen or back

If you’re suffering from cystitis, give homeopathy a try. It’s natural, safe and effective with no side effects and can help cystitis both acutely and chronically.

There are several other things you can do to manage cystitis, including drinking lots of water. You can also try natural sugar-free cranberry juice.

If you have cystitis, keep a close eye on your symptoms. If it worsens, the pain spreads to your loins or kidneys, or you have blood in your urine, get checked out by a qualified health practitioner.

Here are our top 5 remedies for acute cystitis: 

ApisBurning and stinging

Apis comes from the Honey Bee – think of the bee sting when you look at this remedy. So with cystitis, you’ll have burning, soreness and stinging when peeing. Your last drops of urine will burn and smart. Even though you might be pretty thirstless and not drinking that much, you’ll wee quite a lot and have a constant desire to urinate that’s worse during the night. You might also feel worse around 4 pm. Cold bathing can be soothing, and heat can aggravate your symptoms. You might also be sensitive to touch and feel restless.

Cantharis – The No.1 remedy for cystitis

You have a constant, intolerable desire to urinate, but the pain is so intense you dread going to the toilet. It is so uncomfortable, with cutting pains before, during and after peeing. Further adding to the distress, your urine dribbles out drop by drop, and your bladder can feel gripey. Even though you might be thirsty, you won’t want to drink for fear of having to go to the loo again. It’s all very unpleasant. Resting and lying down can help relieve your discomfort, and coffee aggravates your symptoms. If this sounds like you, take Cantharis to ease your pain and help you to feel normal again.

Nux Vomica – Bladder feels full, with a constant urge to urinate, but barely anything comes out.

If you have painful, irritating, and frequent urges to pee, but not a lot happens when you go, think of Nux Vomica. You go to the loo often, but little comes out, with deep itching and pain. These are agitating symptoms, enough to drive anyone up the wall, which they inevitably do for anyone needing Nux Vomica. If you’re also feeling angry and irritable, it’s definitely worth trying this remedy.

Sarsaparilla – Severe pain at the end of urination

With Sarsaparilla, the pain can be so extreme it makes you scream. Your bladder is swollen and feels tender. When you sit down to urinate, it feebly dribbles out, and you find that it’s easier to pee standing up. You have frequent urging and burning pain.

Staphysagria – Honeymoon cystitis or frequent sex

Another popular cystitis remedy, Staphysagria, is often prescribed if your bladder is irritated from sex. It’s also helpful if you’ve developed cystitis after an internal pelvic examination, surgery or labour. It never quite feels like you’ve emptied your bladder, and you may have a sense of pressure in that area, particularly after urinating. You can have a continual burning sensation regardless of whether you’re peeing or not and may have the strange feeling of a drop of urine rolling down your urethra. There can also be an emotional connection, and you may have suppressed anger or grief that’s triggered cystitis.

Keep things simple

It’s easy to get overwhelmed with all the remedies and information, but homeopathy doesn’t have to be complicated.

Learning the top few remedies for specific conditions is extremely useful and makes life much easier when prescribing.

Choosing the correct remedy is like a game of snap. Pick the one that most closely fits your picture. You don’t have to cover all your symptoms, just the most significant ones. Even if you only have one symptom that sets two remedies apart, that can be enough to select one remedy over another.

Take it in a 30c potency and see if it helps. If it does, repeat the remedy as needed and stop when you feel better.
