Urinary Tract Infection (Uti) Connections

Below you will find various relationships to the concept of and potential clinical approaches for urinary tract infection (uti). It is critical to appreciate that in Chinese Medicine (and most related systems), treatment for "urinary tract infection (uti)" is rarely designed with the resulting "urinary tract infection (uti)" exclusively in mind.

For non-practitioners, we recommend reading treating the "cause" and not the "symptoms" for more on the overall approach and the importance of the TCM diagnostic system in formulating treatment approaches.

Within TCM, "urinary tract infection (uti)", is potentially related to the following diagnostic patterns - bladder damp heat, liver and gallbladder damp heat among many other possibilities and/or layered combinations.
