Urinary Tract Infections
You are not alone…
According to the National Institutes of Health, urinary tract infections (UTIs) account for about 8.3 million doctor visits per year in the United States. About five percent of urinary tract infection sufferers have multiple recurrances. Urinary tract infections are uncomfortable, and if left untreated can cause serious disease.
In addition, the Mayo Clinic reports that one million Americans have interstitial cystitis. This is a chronic non-infectious irritation of the bladder. It causes symptoms similar to a urinary tract infection, but its cause is poorly understood.
Conventional medicine has its place…
Conventional medicines can be lifesaving in emergency situations and can control symptoms for many people. Unfortunately, they do not address the underlying cause of the symptoms. In addition, some medicines have serious side effects that make their use undesirable.
You do have options…
Many people do not realize there are options in addition to conventional medicine that will actually make them better. By addressing the underlying causes of urinary tract infections, patients experience reductions in symptoms, improvements in overall health, and reduced dependence on medications.
There is hope…

What do you do for patients with urinary tract infections?
Urinary tract infections result from imbalanced immune function and urinary tract irritants.
At Asheville Natural Health & Homeopathy, we restore balance to the immune system using classical homeopathy, and we remove irritants through diet and detoxification.
Each patient’s plan is individualized – we have never found a “one size fits all” approach to be useful for the majority of people. We spend two hours with an adult patient on the first visit to make sure we understand very thoroughly what is going on in your body. We also spend time in follow up visits to make sure that healing is progressing as well as possible.
Homeopathy is part of the name of our practice because we believe so strongly in its power to cure disease. Homeopathic care involves the thorough evaluation of each patient’s exact symptoms. A single remedy is chosen that matches the subtleties of each case of disease. The remedy given restores balance to the many systems of the body that keep us well. [Read more about homeopathy.]
Diet can have a marked effect on immune function, and many foods and drinks can irritate the urinary tract. We help patients develop dietary habits that support a healthy immune system and urinary tract.
What about my medications?
Conventional medicines can be lifesaving in emergency situations and can control symptoms in many people. Unfortunately, they do not address the underlying cause of the symptoms. In addition, some medicines have serious side effects that make their use undesirable.
At Asheville Natural Health & Homeopathy, our programs improve your health on a fundamental level. Healthy bodies don’t need medications. Our goal is always to reduce or eliminate the need for medications, and we are generally successful.
Please don’t ever discontinue a medication without the consent of your physician, as that could be dangerous or uncomfortable.

Urinary tract disorders may take four to eight visits to have a substantial impact. These visits may be bi-weekly or monthly at first, becoming less frequent as your health improves. Follow up visits will last 30 – 45 minutes, as they involve coaching and counseling as well as homeopathy.
Supplements may be required at an additional cost. We try to keep supplements to a minimum, but our patients may spend$25 or more per month on supplements.
Ongoing follow up care may be required to maintain results long-term.
