Urinary System Health
The basics of our urinary system include: kidneys, bladder, and urethra. The bladder, in a woman’s body, sits lower than a man’s and the urethra is also about 1/5 as long which can make us more susceptible to urinary tract issues.Unless you’ve had issues, urinary system health may not be something that crosses your mind. If you suffer from urinary tract issues then it may be something that always crosses your mind. Here are some simple tips on keeping your urinary system healthy:
- Drink plenty of water
- Go to the bathroom when you have to go, don’t hold it
- Add cranberry juice or cranberry supplements to help support healthy bacteria
- Avoid horseback riding or other activities that put pressure on your urethra and bladder
- Wear cotton underwear or nothing at night to allow for air circulation
- Urinate after sex
- Do kegels
If this condition comes up once in awhile, you could try one of these remedies at home. With urinary tract infections, you need to make sure to get treatment if things don’t resolve themselves quickly as they could lead to more serious problems with your kidneys.
