A urinary tract infection, also known as a UTI, can feel like an attack on your personal and most vulnerable area. It might be difficult to determine what to do because what’s going on down there is not that obvious sometimes.
The good news is that effective natural treatments are available. The Ayurvedic approach, which incorporates dietary, lifestyle, and herbal treatments, is one of these. It is a comprehensive approach based on past wisdom.
Here’s a quick guide on everything you need to know about using Ayurveda to treat a urinary tract infection (UTI):
How to Treat a UTI with Ayurveda?
The Ayurvedic method involves restoring balance to your three doshas. For the treatment of UTIs, there are specific routines for each dosha.
To rebalance your Vata dosha, you can try a full-body or local massage with Vata-alleviating medicated oils or local heat above the pelvis. Ayurvedic experts recommend a cold bath, cooling oils, and cooling pastes for pitta dosha. You can also try a treatment with bitter and cleansing herbs for Kapha dosha.
Ayurveda also considers the lifestyle aspects of UTI treatment and prevention in addition to these measures. Yoga and meditation, for instance, can help prevent emotional imbalance.
Ayurveda’s Herbal Treatment of Urinary Tract Infection (UTI)
Gokshura is an ayurvedic herb used to treat tissue inflammation, particularly in the urinary bladder. People with any urinary tract infection can eat this to alleviate symptoms and treat problems related to urine infections. The leaves of the gokshur plant are dried and crushed to make a plant-based medicine that can be consumed with honey or warm water. This may reduce the body’s inflammation and bladder and urethra swelling. It helps restore kidney function by acting as an aphrodisiac and diuretic.
Punarnava is another plant-based herb that aids in body rejuvenation. It can cleanse your blood and reduce body infections. The punarnava’s anti-inflammatory and diuretic herbs aid in the treatment of kidney disorders and urinary tract inflammation. Consequently, it treats pain and infections caused by urine by lowering urea and creatinine blood levels. As an asava, it also helps prevent kidney stones.
Varunasava helps to maintain homeostasis and purifies the blood. Varunasava, like other diuretics, aids in the urine flow. Males with benign prostatic hypertrophy, which can also be a major cause of urinary tract infections, can benefit from Varunasava. It can be consumed daily by combining it with warm water. Any urinary tract infection or other infection brought on by body inflammation can be treated with this.
Guduchi is a common herb used to treat viral fever, the flu, and pain when urinating. Guduchi also boosts the body’s overall immunity, which helps prevent and treat urinary tract infections. Guduchi successfully disposes of the side effects of UTI and can facilitate the aggravation in a couple of days. Guduchi is consumed as a powder by combining it with honey and warm water, if necessary.
Here are some of the effective home remedies you can try for relief from UTI

You can change your diet to get rid of any foods that were negatively affecting your three doshas.
A panchakarma cleansing treatment can also boost immunity and cleanse your body as a general health precaution. Dietary advice, herbal enemas, and other specialized procedures are all part of it. This can balance your doshas and even reduce stress in Ayurveda.
