Our expert also recommends including Biotta Cranberry juice as part of a bladder-friendly diet. See details of this diet below.
If you are experiencing symptoms of cystitis, take 15 drops of Uva-ursi and Echinacea Complex in a little water 2 to 5 times daily. This product should only be used by women over the age of 18.
After episodes of cystitis, use Cranberry Complex to maintain the health of your bladder if required. Take one tablet a day, or two if you feel like you need to.
Drink 100ml of Biotta Cranberry juice a day alongside your bladder-friendly diet. As part of this diet, you should aim to reduce your intake of refined sugar and acidic foods such as coffee, alcohol, processed meat and spicy food. These can irritate the bladder and affect friendly bacteria. You should also increase your intake of complex carbohydrates like brown rice, brown pasta, quinoa and starchy root vegetables. Make sure to drink plenty of plain water a day – around 1.5 litres. Incorporating plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables into your diet will also ensure you have the right vitamins and minerals to support general good health and resilience.
If men, or women younger than 18, experience the symptoms of cystitis then medical advice should be sought. For severe bladder infections, with symptoms such as back pain or blood in the urine, then you should seek medical advice as soon as possible.
