Cystitis is when the bladder and urinary tract are inflamed, usually through an infection. This causes extreme discomfort upon urination, urgency and frequency with little fluid being passed. The danger with cystitis is that the infection can travel up to the kidneys, which are fragile organs.

Why use Herbal Medicine?

Herbal medicine treats underlying root cause rather that suppressing symptoms. This will help prevent the problem from re-occurring in the future, as opposed to treating it temporarily.

Herbal medicine can be taken alongside conventional treatment.
