Urinary System Disorders

Increased / Decreased Urination

The urinary tract is made up of the kidneys, ureters, bladder, and urethra. These organs work together to produce, transport, store, and excrete urine, the yellowish fluid that contains waste products removed from the blood. Urine contains the by-products of our body's metabolism, salts, toxins, and water. For instance, blood, protein, or white blood cells in the urine may indicate injury, infection, or inflammation of the kidneys. Glucose in the urine may be an indication of diabetes.

Problems in the urinary system can be caused by ageing, illness, or injury. As you get older, changes in the kidneys' structure cause them to lose some of their ability to remove wastes from the blood. Also, the muscles in your ureters, bladder, and urethra tend to lose some of their strength. You may have more urinary infections because the bladder muscles do not tighten enough to empty your bladder completely.

Urinary Tract Infections

Urinary tract infections or UTIs, are infections that occur within the urinary tract, most commonly with the bladder or urethra, causing symptoms of burning upon urination, frequent urination with not much urine, and feeling a frequent urge to pass urine. There can be blood in the urine, or cloudy, strong-smelling urine. Increased intake of sour, salty, bitter, oily, spicy, and fried foods and tea, coffee, and alcoholic beverages aggravate Pitta (Fire) in the body, which leads to the condition of UTI. Working in the sun or hot weather and excessive physical exertion aggravates the condition.

Ayurved & UTI

According to Ayurveda, Urinary Tract Infection or Pittaj Mutrakrichhra, is caused by the aggravation of Pitta Dosha. Pitta is an Ayurvedic humor that symbolizes heat or fire. So, a diet and lifestyle that increases Pitta causes UTI. Aggravated Pitta produces heating toxins in the body. These heating toxins accumulate in the mutravahi strotas (urinary channels) and create an imbalance in the infection-fighting properties of the urinary system.

Many chemical drugs work on bacteria, but these do not work for infection-fighting properties and heating toxins. Thus, such infection can often recur. Ayurvedic medicine, on the other hand, balances the infection-fighting properties of the urinary system and pacifies heating toxins, thereby giving long-term relief to the patient.

Burning Urination

While passing urine some people feel burning sensation in the urinary passage. An infection in the urinary tract caused by diseases like gonorrhoea, enlargement of prostate, a stone in the urinary bladder or concentrated urine, as it happens in summer might be responsible for this type of complaint. Burning sensation may occur along with the passage of urine or may occur even after that. It may subside by taking some alkaline drinks or few glasses of water.

Urine / Kidney Stones

Ayurvedic medicines are effective against kidney Stones, which are formed due to crystallization of specific minerals like calcium, phosphate, oxalate, etc., at the side of kidney line in the body. These deposits are found in different shape and sizes but are usually small and go unnoticed in the urine. They cause immense pain and trouble in the body as they obstruct the path of urine, which disables the body to pass the waste materials out of the body freely.

Causes of Kidney Stones :
  • Excessive calcium intake.
  • Poor fluid intake.
  • Excessive consumption of alcohol.

Other Kidney / Urological Disorders

Urethral stricture

It may be caused by inflammation or scar tissue from surgery, disease, or injury. It may also be caused by external pressure from an enlarging tumour near the urethra, although this is rare. Increased risk is associated with men who have a history of sexually transmitted disease (STD), repeated episodes of urethritis, or benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). There is also increased risk of urethral stricture after an injury or trauma to the pelvic region. Any instrument inserted into the urethra (such as a catheter or cystoscope) increases the chance of developing urethral strictures.


It is often used to refer to the collection of symptoms caused by BPH. BPH symptoms can be divided into two categories—obstructive symptoms and irritative symptoms. Obstructive symptoms include hesitancy, weak stream, intermittency, incomplete emptying, and terminal dribbling. Irritative symptoms include increased frequency, nocturia (increased urination during nights), urgency, urge incontinence, dysuria (painful urination), haematuria (blood in urine), enuresis (absence of urination), urinary tract infection, and urinary retention.

Increased urea and creatinine are mainly caused by renal failure or decreased kidney function. Filtering the toxins out from our body and cleansnig the blood. There is specific ayurvedic treatment for kidney failure and to avoid dialysis naturally. Kidneys work as filters in our body.
