TREATING PAINFUL URINATION

Pain during urination is often caused by some type of infection of the urinary tract. These issues can be eased by drinking plenty of liquids including acidic fluids and juices (such as orange juice or cranberry juice). Avoid sexual intercourse while dealing with any urinary infection.

For urinary tract infections caused by bacteria, antibacterial teas may help. Yarrow and plantain are good choices for this condition. Goldenseal will help stop bacteria from sticking to the bladder walls, helping you avoid infections as well.

Urinary tract infections can turn into kidney infections, potentially damaging the kidneys or causing a life-threatening infection, so medical treatment should

be sought if the infection does not clear up quickly.

BUSHCRAFT TIP

It’s possible—especially if you’re an older man with a history of prostate troubles—that you experience difficulty in urinating. If this happens when you’re in the wild, you should avoid drinking fluids until you can either urinate or, more probably, until you can walk out and seek professional medical assistance. Some ways to stimulate urination include:

• Putting your hand in a pot of warm water

• Rubbing the front upper part of your thighs while standing
