A Natural Approach To Health
Living With Bladder Cysts
I had a question the other day about bladder cysts.
A cyst is an abnormal, sac-like structure that can be found anywhere in your body.
Cysts usually contain a gaseous, liquid, or semisolid substance and have an outer wall, known as the capsule.
Cysts may be small and visible only under a microscope, or they may grow to a very large size and displace normal body structures.
Simple cysts are rare in the bladder.
They occur more often in women than men.
Symptoms usually consist of frequency, urgency, and vague abdominal pain in right lower quadrant.
Treatment should focus on monitoring and preventing a bladder infection.
To deal with a bladder cyst, it’s beneficial to:
*Drink 6-8 cups of purified water daily, which cleanses and flushes your system.
*Drink pure, sugar-free only, organic cranberry juice (found in a health food store). Drink 1 quart daily.
*Dandelion tea or extract acts as a diuretic and liver cleanser, and help relieve bladder discomfort.
*Hydrangea is good for stimulating your kidneys and flushing them clean.
*Fresh blueberries are a very effective antioxidant and may prove as useful as cranberries in preventing infection. The herb bilberry, a type of blueberry, is also good.
*Marshmallow root increases the acidity of urine, inhibiting bacterial growth. Drink 1 quart of marshmallow root tea daily. It helps to strengthen and cleanse your bladder.
*Other beneficial herbs include burdock root, juniper berries, stinging nettle, cleavers plant, yarrow, barley water, herbal teas, and rose hips.
*Include celery, parsley, and watermelon in your diet. These foods act as natural diuretics and cleansers. Celery and parsley juice or extract can be purchased at a health food store or made fresh at home if you have a juicer.
*Avoid citrus fruits; these produce alkaline urine that encourages bacterial growth. Increasing the acid content in urine inhibits the growth of bacteria.
*Stay away from alcohol, caffeine, carbonated beverages, coffee, chocolate, refined or processed foods, and simple sugars. Chemicals in food, drugs, and impure water have an adverse effect on your bladder.
*Perform a 1- to 3-day cleansing fast.
*Take 2 teaspoonfuls of whey powder or 2 acidophilus tablets or capsules with each meal. This is especially important if antibiotic therapy is required.
*Don’t delay emptying your bladder. Making sure you urinate every 2-3 waking hours can help.
*Wear white cotton underwear. Nylon underwear should be avoided.
*Try to eliminate toxic products.
*Practice good personal hygiene.
*Take plentiful amounts of alfalfa throughout the day.
*Review my post on Candida, because many times this can be a significant influence.
*Avoid toxic feminine care products.
