For the irritable bladder, not infectious cystitis, I found an acupuncture remedy, Traditional Chinese Medicine, and it is the 62V point of the bladder meridian.
Massaging this point clockwise (toning) I found immediate relief. Neither allopathic (conventional) medicine, nor bioenergetic medicine, nor homeopathic medicine offered me a solution.
Thank God I found healing when I was already very frustrated and disappointed.
EC: Thank you, Luis! For those interested in locating this point: Type "62V shen mai" into Google images to see the meridian point just below the shin bone (Tibia).
I was awaked from feeling the urge to pee this morning. And later when I went again, I felt the burning sensation and a bit of blood in my urine. I immediately mixed 2 tbsp of organic Apple cider vinegar and 4 oz of water to drink. I also tried dabbing ACV to where I pee for 20 minutes, and the burning sensation subsided when I went again, which was about 30 minutes later, but I saw more blood in my urine. I was worried for a while and thinking if I should go see a doctor instead. But, I continued drinking ACV every hour. Then, by noon I felt normal again. I don't feel the urge to go, no more burning sensation, and no blood in the urine.
I'll continue to drink ACV, 2 tbsp 8 oz of water (I cut down the ACV as I feel better already), for the next couple of days to make sure the infection is completely gone.
Thanks to the Earth Clinic and all the people posting their experiences with the ACV remedy. I'm now pain free. I cannot thank you enough.
"Hematuria: Blood in the urine. Hematuria may or may not be accompanied by pain, but it is always abnormal and should be further investigated. Painful hematuria can be caused by a number of disorders, including infections and stones in the urinary tract. Painless hematuria can also be due to many causes, including cancer."
Apple Cider Vinegar
Urinary Problems: Started taking apple cider vinegar after reading of all the health benefits. I really like it with tomato juice. After about a week I noticed that I sleep through the night without needing to get up to visit the bathroom. I am very happy about this and feel far more energetic during the day. Thank you earth clinic!
For years I suffered with frequent episodes of over active bladder, most always accompanied by headaches in the forehead region and most noticed at night. Tests for infection were always negative.
It wasn't until the last couple of years that I discovered that consuming sugar caused these flare ups. I believe that I had systemic Candida.
Now, as long as I strictly limit the amount of sugar I consume, I have no more bladder issues, headaches or body aches.
hello people, just before orgasm during sexual intercourse I feel as if I have to urinate although having had emptied the bladder before. For your information - I am a male. Besides, to me the feeling of the orgasm is way less intense as before. Furthermore, I have the impression that my urinating pressure is less intense than before and the urine- stream is doubled sometimes. I do not feel any pain. 4 months ago I had pain/burn while urinating. I was prescribed antibiotics and pain got away. Any help appreciated.
Bladder Issue Remedies
Good afternoon, I appreciate all the information I have found on your site. I noticed that you reference chronic aspartame and processed foods as causing renal problems. I am a 34 year old woman. For most of my life, I've consumed processed foods, especially diet soda and many other what I thought were healthy diet foods along with sugar.
For the past few years, I have had trouble with urinary frequency and leakage and get recurrent mild UTIs. From my research, I am guessing this is due to my terrible lifestyle habits. I am fortunate that I do not have hypertension or diabetes. Six months ago, I did a complete diet and lifestyle overhaul and started seeing a naturopathic physician. I've cut out all of the diet and processed foods. I don't take any medications, only herbs. I eat an 80% raw diet, juice, and blend. My energy level and thyroid function have improved dramatically, but I am still struggling with my kidneys/bladder. I take probiotics and cranberry supplements. I've tried D-Mannose as well. What would you suggest to repair my kidney and bladder trouble with the suspected cause of food toxins?
Thank you, :)

I woke up with pain in my bladder area. Usually I use frankincense essential oil, a drop massaged into the lower abdomen a couple of times a day when I realize I have a bladder infection coming on. I was horrified to find my frankincense oil bottle completely empty.
On to plan B.
I poured some castor oil into my hand and massaged in into my lower abdomen. A while later (less than an hour) I realized the pain was gone.
I think I caught the bladder infection early; not sure that it would have worked so easily if the infection was more established.
My husband has recently had a problem with his bladder enlarged which makes it so he has to self-catherize himself 4 times a day. What really bothers him is the the pain he has on his right side. What l have been doing in massaging the area that hurts. Seems to work but what l would like to know is will the castor oil treatment really help?
Chromium Picolinate dramatically helped in my issue of frequent urination. I take 200 mcg 15 minutes before meals (3 meals a day). Hope this helps somebody.
Make a cup of coffee and put 1/8 teaspoon or so of clove powder in it. If you get a full feeling but can't seem to easily empty the bladder. Seems to open things up. Takes a couple hours to have an effect.
I've used the d-mannose for quite sometime. My urologist said proven fact that cranberry is great for bladder health/infection. So sometime ago I was introduced to cran-actin with d-mannose. A wonderful combination for bladder health. My advisor who owns a local health food store said "I bet it's the tinnactic acid in tea...my daughter said it irritates her bladder and seems to increase spasms. Bottomline is I use cran-actin with d-mannose whenever I have a symptom or known exposure that my cause problems. Love it. Certainly recommend it too.
Hello, I have been suffering irritation and burning while I urinate for about a year now. I'm 17, and it started last year when I first got a UTI. I went to the doctor, got antibiotics, (Cipro to be exact) and it went away. Then a couple months later, I had the same problem again, so I thought I would go back to the doctor, which I did, I got Bactrim, and I would be cured. Nope. And ever since I have been trying so desperately to rid myself of whatever it is I have. I have tried apple cider vinegar, which I think made it worse, sea salt water, cranberry pills, kidney bladder health pills, as well as a variety of other pills. I have changed my diet, to only drinking water and pure cranberry juice (which helps). I cut out as much sugar as I can. I am and have been sexually active since it started, but my partner and I have used all the necessary precautions to avoid something like this happening in the first place. Now recently, I was told by this amazing indian lady who runs a health food store in my town told me to take D-Mannose for a few month, I have been on D-Mannose for three months, from November to February. But I stopped because the three months was up, and I was feeling awesome that entire time little to no pain at all. If there was any irritation, it was so small that it didn't even bother me. I know for a fact that my problem has nothing to do with my bladder or kidneys, it is all urethra. But recently, this past week, I have been drinking this detox tea, it is supposes to rid the body of your toxins and it is obviously released through waste. I have been in such awful pain with urination. So I am wondering, is it the tea that is irritating my urethra? Are the toxins being released from my body making me have burning and irritation while I urinate? I only started drinking this tea this week. I want to continue taking the D-Mannose, but I don't know if it will be harmful for my body. Am I allowed to take D-Mannose as a daily supplement? is it safe? It was helping me so much and it sucks that the joy ends. I need opinions, I need answers. I am stopping the tea, but if it continues, I don't know what to do. I'm considering going to a urologist. Help!

I used to think I had cystitis of my bladder. I went to the Doctor who found no infection and told me to eat less chocolate. Which was good advice. Also good advice is to drink no coffee or tea. And to take baking soda with water or with water and psyllium.
Some fitness instructors develop bladder leaks and pelvic floor issues because they don't relax the muscles enough between the tensions for muscle building, causing muscle failure.
Some children have too much tension leading to bowel or bladder control failure and need bio feedback to get beyond the stress of tensing muscles and overloading them.
I have been waking with the urge to urinate 3 and sometimes 4 times through the night for a few years now. Often then I could not get back to sleep. I found by taking a spoon full of creamed clover honey I would get back to sleep quickly. One night while going to bed and not feeling sleepy I decided to take a spoonful before going to bed. Wonderful I slept all night with no urge to go. I now take a spoonful every night at bed time and some night get up once and just as often not at all.
