The Urinary System
What is the Urinary System?
The human urinary system consists of two kidneys, two ureters, a bladder, two
sphincter muscles, and a urethra. These organs, tubes, and muscles filter out
excess fluids and waste products from the bloodstream, which are then
expelled as urine.

The human urinary system removes waste products known as urea from the blood.
Proteins found in meat, poultry, and vegetables are broken down in the body into
urea, which is then eliminated from the body via the urine.

Diagnosing Problems with the Urinary System
If you are suspected of having an abnormality of the urinary system, your doctor
may wish to perform a number of tests in order to determine the presence of
indicators in your urine or urinary tract system.

Help for Problems with the Urinary System
Treatments vary according to the type and cause of abnormality or condition of the
urinary system.

Bacterial infections such as urinary tract infections and cystitis are common
problems of the urinary system, and are usually recurring. Antibiotics are
frequently prescribed to fight the infection. Kidney stones can be very painful, and
treatment may involve a non-surgical procedure called lithotripsy or surgical
removal of the stone.

Incontinence is often treated with drugs that help relax the bladder such
oxybutynin and tolterodine.

For more serious disorders such as renal failure, treatment may include drugs
to address the underlying cause. In more extreme cases, kidney dialysis,
surgery and blood transfusions may be necessary. Kidney, prostate and bladder
cancer is conventionally treated by removing cancerous tissue and using radiation
therapy.

Is there a Drug-Free Approach to Treatment?
Conventional medical treatments for disorders of the urinary system consist of
various drug therapies, dialysis, surgery, and radiation therapy. These treatments
are often necessary, especially for life-threatening diseases. However, there are
also natural and alternative therapies that can be considered which
address the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual needs of an individual.
These include herbal medicines, acupuncture, and dietary modifications to
promote healing.

Some herbal remedies commonly used to treat disorders of the urinary system
include Equisetum arvense, Plantago major, Galium aparine, Arctostaphylos uva
ursi, Thymus vulgari and Chimaphila umbellate. Furthermore, some natural
remedies can be used year-round to support urinary tract health. Alternative
medicine uses a holistic approach to treatment and the different therapies
can be discussed with your doctor, a homeopath, or naturopath.
