Understanding causes, risk factors, and symptoms is the first step in understanding how to treat it and how to prevent future infections.

We will discover together how a correct lifestyle, combined with natural remedies, can make a difference in the prevention and treatment of this troublesome condition

So, today we will address this topic together. ❤️

Cystitis: everything you need to know about this inflammation

In this section, we will focus on the basics: what cystitis is, what its symptoms are, and how it manifests itself. This fundamental understanding will enable us to address specific causes and treatments with greater awareness. We will find out together how this common urinary inflammation affects the body and what signs we need to learn to recognize in order to take timely action. An informative journey that will help you better understand your body and proactively take care of your health.

What is cystitis and what are its symptoms

‘Cystitis’ is the medical term for inflammation of the bladder. This often underestimated condition can have a significant impact on quality of life.

In most cases, cystitis occurs in the presence of an infection caused by bacteria, such as Escherechia coli, which is the most common cause. These bacteria, generally from the intestines, can easily reach the bladder, especially in women, because of their anatomy.

Cystitis, more often than not, is painful and bothersome and, if not treated properly, can lead to far more serious problems, such as kidney infections.

But the question is, how does it manifest itself?

The signs and symptoms of cystitis can vary from person to person, but the most common include:

  • Intense and constant need to urinate;
  • Pain or burning sensation during urination;
  • Frequent urination in small amounts;
  • blood in the urine (hematuria), which may be a sign of a more serious infection;
  • Turbid, strong-smelling urine;
  • pelvic disorders;
  • Sensation of pressure in the lower abdominal area;
  • Mild fever, which may indicate the spread of infection.

These are some of the most common symptoms. It is important to note that, in some cases, cystitis may present without obvious symptoms, especially in elderly people. However, if you try severe back pain, suffer from nausea and vomiting, and have a high fever, It could be a more serious condition, such as a kidney infection, my advice is to see your doctor immediately.

Anyway, fear not friend, if it is cystitis there is definitely a solution for you. 🥰

But before we move on to that, I would like to explore with you the main causes that can cause this inflammation, to help you prevent it and manage it most effectively.

Cystitis: causes and risk factors

You should know that our urinary system includes the kidneys, ureters, bladder and urethra, and these are all important organs for eliminating waste from the body.

The kidneys are a pair of bean-shaped organs located behind the upper abdomen; they filter the body’s wastes and regulate the concentrations of many substances.

Small tubes called ureters carry urine from the kidneys to the bladder, which stores the urine until the need to urinate is felt.

Urine then exits the body through theurethra.

Understanding the structure of our urinary system is crucial to understanding why cystitis comes. Keep in mind that some people are more prone than others to recurrent bladder or urinary tract infections, especially us women.

The reason?

A key factor is anatomy.

Compared to men, we have a short urethra, which means that infection-causing bacteria do not have to travel a long way to reach the bladder.

In addition, there are other risk factors, including:

  • sexual activity: during sexual intercourse, bacteria can enter the urethra (in this case we speak of post-coital cystitis);
  • certain types of contraceptives; use of a birth control diaphragm increases the chance of contracting a urinary tract infection;
  • pregnancy and menopause: hormonal changes during these periods can increase the risk of getting a bladder infection;

But that is not all.

Poor diet, the use of harsh chemicals such as soaps and perfumes, poor intimate hygiene, wearing too tight clothing, and even stress can promote the proliferation of bacteria and, consequently, lead to the onset of cystitis.

In addition to these factors, it is also important to consider the use of antibiotics. Frequent or improper use of antibiotics can disrupt the balance of natural bacterial flora, making the body more susceptible to infection. This phenomenon, known as antibiotic resistance, is becoming a growing concern in the treatment of urinary infections.

Another aspect to consider is the role of the immune system. A weakened immune system, which can be caused by a variety of factors such as stress, lack of sleep, poor diet, or chronic illness, can reduce the body’s ability to fight infection, increasing the risk of cystitis.

Finally, it is important to emphasize the importance of hydration. Drinking plenty of water helps dilute urine and ensure that bacteria are excreted from the body more frequently, reducing the risk of infection.

You might probably be thinking now something like, “Oh my God, it’s really easy to get it! How to fix it?”

Don’t worry, we can see it now! 💪🏼

SOS cystitis: a guide to solutions for treatment and prevention

Before I go on, I would like to clarify one thing: for each type of cystitis there is a specific solution.

That’s right, you read it right.

This means that in order to treat it effectively, you will first need to understand what it is.

Yeah, but how to do it? 🤔

First, I recommend that you keep in mind some important prevention behaviors, which I summarize below:

  • Take care of your intimate hygiene, using mild soaps and taking care to wash after every intercourse; 🫧
  • Avoid alcohol and overly salty foods, prefer a more balanced diet; 🍎
  • Always wipe from the vagina toward the anus and never the other way around; 🧻
  • Prefer showering to bathing; 🚿
  • Change the linen frequently. ❤️
  • Drinking at least 1.5/2 liters of water a day helps keep urine diluted and facilitates urinary tract cleansing. 🫗

It is also important to consider the effect of environmental and lifestyle factors, such as prolonged exposure to cold or wearing clothing that is too tight and non-breathable, which can increase the risk of cystitis. In addition, regular moderate physical activity can improve blood circulation and strengthen the immune system, helping to reduce the risk of urinary infections.

That said, let’s move on to solutions.

In most cases, he is likely to have read and heard that antibiotics are the best solution.

So, is that so?

Medications are certainly an effective choice because they defeat the infection immediately; however, during treatment not only the pathogenic bacteria are eliminated, but also some of the good ones. What’s more, it often happens that the bacteria are able to resist the next infection, somehow becoming stronger.

For this and other reasons, so many girls turned to us to seek a solution that was natural and effective.

The answer is D-mannose, and if you don’t know what it is, I’ll explain in two words how it works.

Dimann-brand mannose, Dimann Pure, is composed of 100 percent of this simple sugar of plant origin. Extracted from birch bark, Dimann Puro works to both treat and prevent cystitis by respecting intestinal and vaginal flora.

Due to its action, bacteria, ‘hanging’ in the bladder, are no longer able to stick to the bladder walls and slip away quite naturally (while you pee). In addition, it is important to note that D-mannose does not interfere with antibiotic treatments, making it a safe and complementary choice when needed. Therefore, it is considered particularly useful for women suffering from recurrent cystitis, offering a natural alternative to reduce the frequency of infections without the side effects of antibiotics.

Did I almost convince you?

I give you a big hug,
