Urethra is a tube carrying urine from the bladder and throwing it out of the body. Inflammation of Urethra is called Urethritis. Bacterial infections which enter the urinary tract cause increased urge associated with pain during urinating. This can occur at any age and females are more prone to get this infection in comparison to males.
Urethritis is commonly caused by bacterial and fungal infection because of sexually transmitted disease and poor hygiene . It can also occur due to E coli infection, injury, radiation therapy, stone in the urinary tract, retention of urine and excessive use of steroids.
Pain, burning sensation, irritation while passing urine is the main symptom. Symptoms like abdominal pain, frequent urination, abnormal urethra and vaginal discharge in females or blood discharge in males, and increase in body temperature may also be seen.
At Ayur Healthcare our skilled Ayurveda practitioners focus on the management of infection by internal detoxification with help of internal ayurvedic supplements, healthy diet and lifestyle changes and treatment therapies like induced purgation (virechana) or enemas (basti).
The most part of treatment of Urethritis is having a proper diet and lifestyle which prevents and cures the ailment. Consumption of adequate quantities of water or juices and avoiding spicy food, alcohol, cold drinks, excess consumption of tea and coffee, and processed carbohydrates is very useful as a preventive measure.
