Some of the most common symptoms of a bladder infection are the constant urge to urinate as well as a constant feeling of fullness in the bladder, pain during urination, foul smelling urine, as well as other signs of inflammation such as fever.
The most well-known natural remedy for bladder infections is unsweetened cranberry juice, which may not be effective in all cases.
People with interstitial cystitis or chronic bladder infections should seek out treatment from a classical homeopath. Contact the clinic or a classical homeopath in your local area.

Aconite: Useful at the beginning of a bladder infection, when the symptoms come on very suddenly.
Sarsaparilla: Severe pain at the end of urination; can urinate only in dribbles.
Nux Vomica: Symptoms come on after overindulgence, drugs or alcohol. There is pain before or during urination.
Apis: Severe, hot burning pains. Use if Cantharis seems indicated but does not help.
Dosage: Give a 30C potency (strength) of the indicated homeopathic remedy, every 6 to 8 hours for up to 3 days. Switch to another remedy if there is no relief after 24 hours.
