Foul-smelling urine troubling you? Try these best homeopathic medicines

Urine might have a little bit of smell normally, but if urine emits a strong smell then it could have many reasons. Urine is composed of water and waste products from the body that makes it slightly smelly but if the urine contains excessive waste as compared to water then it leads to strong smell in the urine.

Foul smelling urine could simply be arising from dietary factors (some of the examples of food items that can cause smelly urine are coffee, asparagus, garlic, onion and fennel); dehydration in which the urine is concentrated containing more ammonia and decreased water content; use of certain medicines (e.g., antibiotics and some of the diabetes medicines) and intake of some supplements like vitamin B. But in other cases when attended with other signs and symptoms, it could be indicative of certain underlying health issues. The reason could be diabetes mellitus, UTI (urinary tract infection), STI (sexually transmitted infection), liver disease or kidney failure. UTI refers to infection in any part of the urinary system (including urinary bladder, urethra, ureters or the kidneys). In UTI cases, urine may emit offensive smell along with other symptoms like painful/ burning urination, frequent urination, urgency to urinate, pain in the lower abdomen, fever and chills. Some of the STIs like chlamydia can be a reason. Chlamydia leads to vaginal discharge that can cause offensive smelling urine when it passes through from urethra. Offensive urine can also arise in cases of liver diseases in which urine looks dark and emit foul smell along with other symptoms like vomiting and abdomen pain. Kidney failure and liver failure could also be a reason apart from above causes.

Homeopathic Management

Homeopathic medicines are highly effective in managing cases of foul-smelling urine. Homeopathic medicines are very natural remedies that help in such cases with zero side effects. They treat the underlying cause of the problem and boost body’s own restorative mechanism to get rid of this concern. Along with smelly urine, any accompanying symptoms like pain or burning with urination, frequent urination and urgent urination are effectively managed with homeopathic medicines. There is a long list of homeopathic medicines to treat smelly urine. The prescription has to be selected for every individual person based on the characteristic symptom presentation. It is advised to take any homeopathic medicine under supervision of a homeopathic physician after detailed case evaluation, and avoid self – medication. It is to be noted that homeopathy is advised only for mild to moderate cases occurring without any serious reasons. In case of serious causes, like kidney infection, serious liver problem, kidney failure or liver failure, one must take treatment from conventional mode as homeopathy has a limitation in handling serious cases.
