"Can chronic UTI be cured by acupuncture and moxibustion throughly?" this is one of the most frequent asked questions of UTI patients. Here Dr. Lee from Wuhan Dr. Lee's TCM clinic will answer it for us.


According to Dr. Lee, acupuncture and moxibustion do has some effect on mild UTI. Patients can feel great improvement in a short time. However, for the severe UTI like chronic UTI, it is hard to be cured totally by acupuncture and moxibustion only. And yes, this treatment do can bring some improvement on symptoms, but if patients want to get rid of it, they should combine this treatment with herbal pill, because herbal pill focus on harmonizing Qi and blood, improving the inner environment of human body but not on killing the bacteria directly. 


Dr. Lee said that she had a male patient who is 18 years old half year ago. This patient had pain on urethra, frequent and urgent urination for more than 5 months. At the beginning, he felt great improvement after taking antibiotics, but later, he stopped the pills because it brought pain to his stomach. Then this patient tried acupuncture and moxibustion, but the improvement was so slightly. At the end, he came to Dr. Lee's clinic ask for help.


After a careful diagnosis, he was told that he has heat on his body, so Dr. Lee asked him to combine acupuncture and moxibustion with Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill which has the functions of clearing heat, removing toxin, resolving dampness, activating blood and resolving stasis. After one month treatment, he felt a good relief from the pain, and the symptoms like frequent and urgent urination are less than before. Two months later, the frequent and urgent urination are gone. Three months later, he was totally healthy.


All in all, acupuncture and moxibustion only is an adjuvant treatment for chronic UTI. If men want to free from this disease radically, he also needs to take herbal pill - Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill. The acupuncture and moxibustion and Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill are golden partner.
