At some point in a woman’s life she likely will be concerned with the subject of bladder health in the same way that men think about prostate health. Both of these issues are directly related to the health of the urinary tract. (Men’s Prostate Health is addressed as a separate Health Concern.) A few key habits plus effective dietary supplements will keep this vital elimination route in peak condition and trips to the bathroom to a comfortable level.


Five Daily Tips for Promoting Urinary Tract Health

  • Take a tub bath rather than a shower, adding 10 to 15 drops of organic lavender essential oil to the water. Lavender is very cleansing and purifying. Relax and soak in the water for 15 to 30 minutes.
  • Drink a minimum of 8 glasses of distilled water per day; 10 is even better.
  • Begin the day with a glass of hot distilled water and the juice of a fresh organic lemon. Sweeten with a drop or two of honey if preferred.
  • Eat lots of fresh fruits and vegetables like celery, watermelon juice, and umeboshi plum balls (see the supplement Mumefural), plus green drinks like Green Max to move the pH level of your system toward the alkaline end of the scale. Avoid acid-forming foods like caffeine and chocolate.
  • Massage your lower abdomen each day with a preparation made from almond oil and essential oils of several woods. These essential oils are very powerful and work well to maintain urinary tract health. Mix 1 ounce of almond oil (the carrier oil) with 3 drops of sandalwood oil, 2 drops of cedarwood oil, 2 drops of cypress oil, 1 drop of benzoin resin, and 1 drop of frankincense. The essential oils are available at your local health food store or online. This preparation should last about 5 days, and the earthy aroma is fantastic!

Six Supplements for Support
  • Cranberry—Encourages a healthy environment in the bladder and urinary tract. Cranberry is a fantastic and natural source of phenolic compounds that provide the body with powerful antioxidant protection. For more information regarding how cranberry benefits the urinary tract, visit www.cranmax.com.
“Drinking large amounts of cranberry cocktail is not only inconvenient, but can be expensive and high in calories. For these reasons, supplements are often preferred. Cran-Max is a full-spectrum supplement containing all the vital parts of the cranberry— the fruit, seeds, skin and juice.”
Sherry Torkos has practiced pharmacy since she graduated from the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy and Science in 1992. She is a certified fitness instructor and the author of several booklets and articles for professional and consumer journals.
  • D-Mannose—A highly effective natural choice for urinary tract care. D-Mannose is referred to as a glyconutrient because it is a naturally occurring simple sugar with specific nutritional benefits for the kidneys, bladder, and urinary tract.
  • Mumefural—Potent extract from the umeboshi plum that is highly alkalizing to the system. It’s the perfect antidote to “over-acid” eating, which defines most of our diets in the US. Urinary tract health depends on an alkaline environment.
  • Uva Ursi—Traditionally used for bladder and urinary tract health. This herb is most effective when taken with calcium citrate to keep the urine on the alkaline side of the pH scale rather than with acidic foods like orange juice. 
  • Acidophilus—Helps maintain a healthy environment in the urinary tract.
  • Garlic—Helps maintain a healthy environment in the urinary tract.
