A urinary tract infection is an infection that begins in your urinary system. Your urinary system is composed of the kidneys, ureters, bladder and urethra. Any part of your urinary system can become infected, but most infections involve the lower urinary tract that is the bladder and the urethra.

The main causal agent is Escherichia coli. 

Women are at greater risk of developing a urinary tract infection than are men.

Homoeopathic medicine:-
The use of urinary tract infection homeopathic treatments is an effective method to fight the E. coli bacteria, the bacteria that are causing infections to both men and women. Homeopathic remedies are very helpful in treating bladder infections, in relieving discomfort and encouraging quick recovery. These remedies may help patients get through an existing or recurrent urinary tract infection without the use of antibiotics.

Since urinary tract infection is a result of immune system weakness, which does not defend against foreign bacteria that enters the urinary tract and causes an infection to develop in the urinary tract, bladder & kidney.
A homeopathic medicine will enhance resistance to infection by stimulating your immune system so that the illness can be resolved as rapidly and with as little discomfort as possible. Homeopathic medicines work on an entirely different principle; it doesn’t interfere with the natural immune response but works alongside it by enhancing one’s ability to fight an infection.

The medicine also very effective in recurrent UTI.
