4. Efficient Sitz Baths for Cystitis

Perhaps the most efficient sitz baths in case of cystitis are the ones with horsetail, prepared after these instructions.

  • Start the preparation the night before starting the treatment.
  • Add 1 bundle of horsetail in a 10 L pot (if you have fresh horsetail) or 1 pack of dried horsetail tea (if you buy it in stores).
  • Pour cold water over the horsetail, until you’ve filled 3/4 of the pot, and leave it overnight.
  • Next day in the evening, bring the content to simmer.
  • Then pour the infusion in the bathtub (or a plastic basin) and add a little bit of cold water over it, so you don’t get burned.
  • Make sure the water temperature is totally comfortable.
  • Get in the tub in a sitting position and make sure the water almost reaches your waist.
  • Stay in until you sense the water turned cold.

Wipe well, get your pajamas on and a pair of socks and off to bed. You can reuse the horsetail once again. Take this sitz bath daily, without interruptions and you’ll feel way better in time.

Salt water sitz bath is another amazing remedy for recurring cystitis.

Boil 3-4 L of water in a large pot. When the water starts boiling, pour it in another pot (a wider one) in which you’ve added 3 handfuls of coarse salt. When the steams have cooled down so you can bear them, start your steam bath. When the water has reached a comfortable temperature, pour it in a basin and take a sitz bath.

5. Folk Remedy for Cystitis

If you’re predisposed to cystitis, here is an old folk remedy that you can try. Find a fist-sized rock, clean it well with a brush and leave it to dry. Then put it into the oven and heat it up well. When it’s hot enough, take it out using a glove so you don’t get burned. Place the rock into a tin basin and pour apple vinegar on it. Place your genital area over the hot rock, so that the hot steams enter in. Stay for 10-15 minutes over the rock and repeat the procedure a few times.

6. Swedish Bitter Poultice for Cystitis

Swedish Bitter compresses are also very helpful. Pour Swedish bitter onto a handkerchief, fold it in half and place in on your abdomen area, over the bladder. Cover it with a plastic foil and then wrap a hot towel around your waist to keep warm. Keep the compress overnight. If you get irritated skin, use marigold ointment. Repeat 4-5 days in a row or as many days as necessary, until all the cystitis symptoms leave.
