Cystitis is a common urinary infection due to inflammation of the bladder area especially in the wall of the bladder. It is not a very complex condition. However, it gets itchier and then leads to more complications, if not treated on time.

Using natural herbs is one of the best methods to cure urinary intact infections like cystitis and urethritis. These herbs cure and reduce the inflammation caused by cystitis and relax muscle spasms. This disease is common not only in women but also in men. The major symptoms of cystitis include fever, nausea or vomiting, burning sensation while urinating, blood in urine or semen in men.

Ayurveda has been studying issues on cystitis conditions since the ancient times. Hence over a period of time they have come up with some herbs which are very beneficial and good for treating acute cystitis.

In Ayurveda terms, apan vayu is disturbed when there is elimination or disturbance in urination. This problem is also called as mootrakruchhra in Ayurveda and it is further categorized into four types:

  • Vataj mootrakruchhra: Mainly caused by vitiated vayu i.e. air. It’s marked by obstructed urination and severe pain in the pelvic region.
  • Pittaj mootrakruchhra: Caused mainly by vitiated pitta. This shows severe burning micturition and turns the color of urine red or yellowish.
  • Kaphaj mootrakruchhra: Caused mainly by vitiated kapha. This is characterized by swelling and heaviness in the pelvic region resulting in sticky urine.
  • Sannipatik mootrakruchhra: Caused by vitiation of all the three doshas and hence have mixed characteristics

As per ayurvedic treatment, any of these above issues do not require any surgical intervention. The line of treatment involves the removal of infection with internal detoxification, cleaning and removing any blockages in the urinary tract. This is combined with natural herbs to tone the kidneys and eventually normalize the functioning of apan vayu.
