What is Cystitis?

Cystitis, as we all know, is having a mild or extreme pain when you go to urinate or pee. You feel the burning and stinging sensation when you are doing the pee. Females are more prone to having Cystitis, as their urethra is small in size making the infection spread easily. You just feel that you shouldn't drink much water and fluids, but it is completely wrong. If you don't drink water sufficiently, the infection in your vagina or male genitals keeps spreading and reaches the bladder and further to the kidney. That will create more complications, which can even harm your kidney. The moment you feel even a mild pain you feel like frequent urination, the urgency to pee, when you couldn't control your urine and leakage happens, rush to your doctor and get diagnosed. But today we are just going to put light on certain Home Remedies for Cystitis that are available in your kitchen or the nearest grocery store that can prevent and treat your Cystitis troubles.

Herbal Remedies for Cystitis

Home Remedies for Cystitis


Garlic takes care of your body in a number of ways. Mostly we use it while cooking our meals, but raw garlic is far better than the cooked one. Take 2, 3 cloves of raw garlic, early in the morning on an empty stomach and it helps in removing all sorts of infections & E-coli bacteria. If you find its taste a bit awkward, put crushed garlic in a glass of water. When crushed, it releases a potent natural anti-microbial substance called Allicin that hinders the growth of micro-organisms. It is present in the raw garlic but is released when you cut or crush garlic by an enzyme known as alliinase, by disrupting the cells. If the taste is still not according to your liking, you can add the juice of a lemon & raw honey to sweeten it and then drink this beverage. It will certainly bring relief.

Apple Cider Vinegar:

A drink of Apple Cider Vinegar is very useful in removing the infections and is potent enough to remove many other ailments, related to your body. It contains lots of enzymes and minerals that help you retain your health in a positive manner. It helps in fizzling out all bacteria that keep lingering on the inside of the female's vaginal tract or male's urethra. It balances the pH balance in your body.

You can drink it by opening the bottle and have 2 teaspoons, the first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. It clears the tracts that were causing inflammation and pain while peeing.
