Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs)

UTI, or urinary tract infection, is an infection of the urinary tract that involves the bladder, kidneys, urethra, or ureters. These are the four structures in the body that urine passes through before it’s discarded from the body.

Urinary Tract

  • The two ureters are narrow tubes that drain urine from the kidneys into the bladder. Their about 10 inches long and extend from each kidney into the bladder.
  • The bladder is a small organ that stores urine collected from the kidneys. When urine has reach a certain level in the bladder, a voiding sensation is felt, then muscles in the lining of the bladder can be controlled to discard urine from the bladder via urination.
  • A small tube that connects the bladder to the outside of the body is called the urethra. At the juncture of bladder and urethra is the urinary sphincter muscle. This muscle is relaxed during urination in order to discard urine from the body.

Although any part of the urinary tract system can become infected, the higher up in the urinary tract the infection is, the more serious the infection most likely would be.

  • The upper region of the urinary tract system is the kidneys (pyelonephritis) and ureters.
  • The lower region of the urinary tract system is the bladder (cystitis) and urethra (urethritis).

An infection that occurs in the upper region of the urinary tract system usually affects the kidneys. Symptoms such as chills, fever, and nausea are some indicators that an infection might be present. An infection that occurs in the lower region of the urinary tract system can affect the urethra or bladder.

Many infection (UTI) of the urinary tract may be treated with natural remedies.
