Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs)

Vitalia’s Approach to Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs)

Urinary tract infections, also called bladder infections or cystitis, can occur in men and women, but are far more common in women.  These infections typically resolve quickly with antibiotics.  However, in some patients antibiotic treatment will set them up for re-occurring bladder infections, requiring multiple rounds of antibiotics.  With naturopathic medicine we can treat both an acute urinary tract infections and chronic, re-occurring infections with natural remedies.

“I appreciated the personal care I received from the very first phone call I made for help.”  Joanie L., Oregon

At Vitalia, we focus on finding and treating the cause of the recurrent infections in our patients.  Starting with the diet, we often recommend to our patients to eliminate simple sugars, refined carbohydrates like white flour and white rice, and fruit juice.  These simple carbohydrates and sugars in the diet decrease immune function.  We have many ways to assess a patients diet and customize it to their specific needs. We also use natural remedies to strengthen the immune system, the bladder and urinary system.  We have helped many men and women stop the cycle of re-occurring urinary tract infections.
