Chronic Urinary Tract Infection (UTI)

What is repeated UTI?

A recurrent or repeated UTI (Urinary Tract Infection) is typically defined as three or more UTIs within a 12-month period or two or more occurrences within six months. The same species that caused previous infections is typically responsible for recurrences.

What are main signs and symptoms of UTIs?

Urinary tract infections don’t always cause signs and symptoms, but when they do they may include:

  • A strong, persistent urge to urinate

  • A burning sensation when urinating

  • Passing frequent, small amounts of urine

  • Urine that appears cloudy

  • Urine that appears red, bright pink or cola-colored — a sign of blood in the urine

  • Strong-smelling urine

  • Pelvic pain, in women — especially in the center of the pelvis and around the area of the pubic bone

The most common UTIs occur mainly in women and affect the bladder and urethra.

What are Causes and Risk Factors?

UTIs can occur when GI bacteria spread from the anus to the urethra. Also, because the female urethra is close to the vagina, sexually transmitted infections, such as herpes, gonorrhea, chlamydia and mycoplasma, can cause urethritis.

  • Female anatomy. A woman has a shorter urethra than a man does, which shortens the distance that bacteria must travel to reach the bladder.
  • Sexual activity. Sexually active women tend to have more UTIs than do women who aren’t sexually active. Having a new sexual partner also increases your risk.
  • Certain types of birth control. Women who use diaphragms for birth control may be at higher risk, as well as women who use spermicidal agents.
  • Menopause. After menopause, a decline in circulating estrogen causes changes in the urinary tract that make you more vulnerable to infection.
  • Urinary tract abnormalities. Babies born with urinary tract abnormalities that don’t allow urine to leave the body normally or cause urine to back up in the urethra have an increased risk of UTIs.
  • Blockages in the urinary tract. Kidney stones can trap urine in the bladder and increase the risk of UTIs.
  • A suppressed immune system. Diabetes and other diseases that impair the immune system — the body’s defense against germs — can increase the risk of UTIs.
  • Catheter use. People who can’t urinate on their own and use a tube (catheter) to urinate have an increased risk of UTIs. This may include people who are hospitalized, people with neurological problems that make it difficult to control their ability to urinate and people who are paralyzed.
  • A recent urinary procedure. Urinary surgery or an exam of your urinary tract that involves medical instruments can both increase your risk of developing a urinary tract infection.

Our holistic, natural approaches help repeated UTI by:

  1. Improving immune through working on nutrition and Digestion, improving sleep, managing stress, and addressing the root causes of a suppressed immune system, such as diabetes.
  2. Optimizing GI flora

3. Balancing Hormones
