Frequent urination (pollakiuria) can occur at any age and may be isolated or accompanied by other symptoms. If frequent urination during the night (nocturia) is more common in aging men, frequent urination during the day may occur in men and women alike, regardless of their age.
Frequent urination typically refers to the need to urinate more than 8 times in 24 hours, provided that you do not consume more fluids than usual. This problem can signal a disease of the kidneys or bladder, so it is important to go to the urologist to get a correct diagnosis and a Colorado treatment for frequent urination.
In addition, you can try a natural treatment for frequent urination. Here are some recommended remedies in cases of pollakiuria caused by infections:
- Cranberry leaves: they have antiseptic and diuretic effects.
- Cranberry fruits: they complete the action of the leaves, being rich in antioxidants and regenerating the urinary tract. There are studies showing that cranberry juice has a strong action against Escherichia coli, the most incriminated bacterium in urinary tract infections.
- Corn silk: it is appreciated for its calming, antispasmodic and diuretic effects. It can be consumed as an infusion (1 teaspoon to a cup, 2-3 cups a day).
- Mint and ginger: they help to alkalize urine (the urine becomes less acidic, and bacteria can no longer multiply as much). In addition, ginger is also an anti-inflammatory.
