Cystitis is a common urinary tract infectious disease, Escherichia coli is the most common pathogen, accounting for more than 75%. Patients with cystitis usually have symptoms such as increased frequency and urgency of urination, urodynia, discomfort, and lower abdominal pain.

Therefore, in order to effectively treat this disease, in addition to helping patients kill pathogens, eliminate inflammation, helping patients eliminate all kinds of discomfort symptoms is also important.
In modern medicine, Chrysanthemum Indicum is considered as a natural broad-spectrum antibiotic in Chinese herbs. It can not only inhibit many pathogens such as Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, B-thrombolytic streptococcus, typhoid bacillus, and so on but also has the effect of anti-virus and anti-helicoid.
In addition, it was also found in medical research that the extract of chrysanthemum could inhibit the permeability of capillaries and produce anti-inflammatory effects after injecting it into the abdominal cavity of mice.

In addition, Chinese medicine believes that chrysanthemum tea is sweet in flavor and slightly cold in nature, which has the effects of clearing heat and detoxification, smoothing liver and improving eyesight, dispelling wind, and reducing heat, and relieving pain and swelling.
Therefore, for patients with cystitis, chrysanthemum tea can inhibit E. coli, eliminate inflammation, and relieve local pain symptoms. But because the pathogenic factors of cystitis are not only E. coli, but also local pain symptoms, the efficacy of chrysanthemum tea is only useful for part of the patients with cystitis. The role of chrysanthemum tea is very limited, so patients should not pin their hopes on it.
In fact, in order to cure the disease thoroughly, patients had better choose a more systematic and scientific treatment method. The treatment of cystitis is based on oral drugs, such as ofloxacin or cephalosporins.

If symptoms do not disappear, urinary pus cells continue to exist, and bacterial culture is still positive, drug resistance or infection should be considered. And more suitable antibiotics should be adjusted in time, or the application time can be prolonged in order to achieve the goal of an early cure.
For chronic cystitis which has not been cured for a long time or recurrence, a detailed and comprehensive urinary examination should be done, obstruction factors should be relieved, primary lesions should be controlled, and urinary tract should be unobstructed.
Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill can be taken because it has the effect of clearing heat and detoxification, promoting blood circulation, promoting qi, relieving pain, and diuretic drench, so it can effectively eliminate urinary system inflammation. In addition, patients need not worry about side effects because it is made of natural herbs.
