Overactive Bladder: Searching for a Possible Remedy
in Mother Nature’s Medicine Cabinet

(Page 3 of 3)

It is also suggested that you try to drink at least 2 to 3 quarts of water every day, in order to keep your urinary tract properly cleansed. Other herbs that can be helpful in decreasing and soothing any inflammation that may exist in bladder or urethra tissues: Flax oil; Vitamin C; Bromelain; Wobenzyme tablets; and Vitamin E. There are a few more herbs that will also help with acute symptoms of overactive bladder, but before taking any kind of herbs or tonics, it is best to speak to a trained homeopathic practitioner or to a conventional doctor who is also knowledgeable with herbal medicines. Only a professional will be able to tell you how often and in what dose and combination to take these and other herbs. Also, be sure to let a professional know up front, the types of conventional medicines that you may already be taking, in order to watch for any negative drug interactions that may lead to an undesired and potentially fatal effect. Know too, that most homeopathic remedies are delivered in small, pellet form that has a lactose sugar base, so if you are lactose intolerant, a professional will need to know this prior to deciding upon your specific treatment. If your lactose intolerance is known ahead of time, a homeopathic liquid utilizing a water base, along with the needed herb, can be made instead.

Overactive bladder doesn’t have to be a problem, nor should it constantly be on your mind. All you need to do is tell your doctor or homeopathic practitioner, and with the combination of what you can do for yourself (through exercise and proper diet) along with what the professionals can do for you (through medicines or herbs), you’ll be able to finally go shopping, go to a party, or go to a recital or sporting event without having to know where the bathroom is first.
