Natural Remedies For Child UTI


Visitors: 523

Urinary tract infections (UTI) in children are considered life-threatening given their weaker, underdeveloped immune systems. If bladder infections should occur in a child, the infection may be related to organ abnormalities that will be the primary cause of recurring bladder disorders all throughout puberty and adulthood.

Bladder infections in Children

If your child frets about painful urination while feverish and feeling discomforts at the lower back, the probability of diagnosing a bladder infection is highly likely. Immediate urinalysis is therefore required to confirm the presence of an infection.

Babies are also prone to bladder infections due to frequent diaper use. Underlying disorders with the urinary tract and unhygienic practices are the primary causes of bacterial infections affecting the urethra. The infection can also trigger cystitis, which is defined as an inflammation of the bladders. Infection can also progress from the ureters up to the kidneys, which induces the symptoms of fever and constant pain. Kidney infections pose a greater health risk for children, where sufferers may be advised to undergo surgery if the infection has moved up to the upper urinary tract to hit the kidneys.

Natural Health Remedies for UTI

As a matter of convention, antibiotics either taken in pills or in shots are prescribed by most physicians to subdue the build up of bacteria and prevent its recurrence as well. Nonetheless, the absence of an immune system component to reinforce the body's defenses against future attacks, limits antibiotic action to the relief of symptoms.

As many herbalists now pursue the use of pharmaceutical methods in the concoction of herbal remedies, standardized herbal supplements designed to treat urinary tract infections have been prepared using the medicinal compounds of potent herbs.

Yarrow (Achillea Millefolium) is one such herbal remedy utilized for its natural astringent properties that endeavors a cleansing action on the urinary tract system. The herb also helps maintain systemic balance with the presence of bioactive compounds that soothe the urinary tract.

There are also natural antiseptics such as Bearberry (Arctostaphylos Uva-ursi) and Buchu (Agathosma Betulina) that are purported safe and effective in treating bladder infections in both adults and children.

To derive overall kidney treatment, the medicinal compounds of St. John's Wort (Hypericum Perforatum) have been used to treat urinary organs’ dysfunction.

To further enhance the immune defenses of children, there is Lemon Balm (Melissa officinalis) and its antimicrobial properties that effectively subdues infectious pathogen buildup.

The therapeutic compounds of these herbs have been expertly combined in concentrated measures with the UTI remedy UTI-Clear , a standardized herbal remedy formulated to promote the routine functions of the bladders, kidneys and the entire urinary tract system.

Help your child prevent urinary system disorders through a nutritious diet enriched with immune system boosters, by way of a healthy lifestyle and hygienic practices. And if everything else fails to avert bladder infections, remember that natural remedies not only benefit one part of the body but the ailing system as well.
