The advice is from Dr. Nona Petrova.

Cystitis is a very common female problem, it is related to the anatomy of the genitourinary system in women, but it is also related to many psychological, purely female problems.

Acute cystitis is most often an acute viral infection to which a bacterial infection is superimposed and is very often associated with dysbacteriosis. Dysbacteriosis is when the bacterium Escherichia coli penetrates and it gives chronification of cystitis after a past viral infection.

As with the common cold, 80 percent of the disease is due to a viral infection, so with cystitis, 80 percent of cystitis is caused by viral infections. In chronic cystitis, a bacterial infection is necessarily observed, which is most often from the Escherichia coli group. These are the gram-negative bacteria of the gastrointestinal tract.

What can be done in this situation?

In the presence of cystitis, we need to reconsider many things. First of all, we need to see what kind of conflict we have got into personally/professionally and which we cannot deal with, we cannot transform. What conflicts are associated with territory marking? Do you know how this happens in the animal world? Dogs e.g. they urinate and thus mark their territory.

Illness can be related to anything related to this deep, primal, subconscious, archetypal psychology, everything related to territory: my territory, who has entered my territory and I cannot defend it. This leads to signals to the bladder mucosa, and the entire bladder in general, with the message: "Be hyperactive!", "Mark your territory!".

Otherwise, there is retention of energy in the mucous membrane, and when we have a blockage in an organ or organ system, the moment the conflict is resolved and the woman calms down, then this blocked energy must be released. At this point, viruses and bacteria, especially Escherichia coli, come to the rescue. This is why the inflammations that torment women are especially painful.

Regardless of the psycho-emotional basis of a disease, especially in chronic cystitis mostly, while acute cystitis can be related to situational things: colds /on the feet/, swimming pools, etc.

Regardless of these factors, the way of eating also matters in dealing with dysbacteriosis: without extreme diets, protein nutrition especially feeds dysbacteriosis. A balanced diet, without raw food after 3 p.m., with few dairy foods, because they lead to mucus formation and maintenance of mucosal inflammation, such as cystitis.
