      Sorry. That may encourage people to self medicate with the said medicines. I am against to that. These home remedies are supplementary to the Ayurvedic treatment that one receives from an Ayurvedic doctor.
      I have got another website exclusively meant to give information regarding Ayurvedic medicines – ayurmedinfo.com

    Dear Dr Hebbar,

    The home remedy for urinary track infection and painful urination is very informative but in practical, it is rather a difficult and time consuming process where the person has to arrange the herbal powders from the market, spend time in preparing decoction (kadha) and bear the cost of fuel. Although, kadhas are always better than pills but people normally prefer to go for an easy way to save their time and efforts in preparing such kadhas as against readily available herbal medicines to treat their sufferings. As there are safe and effective herbal medicines readily available in the market to treat all types of illnesses, I would sincerely appreciate if you could also provide their names as an alternative choice while suggesting home remedy for any particular disease or disorder.

    Take care and remain blessed with good health!

    Best regards,
    Kunwar Singh

      These remedies are meant for the patients to try under the guidance of their Ayurvedic doctors. It would mislead the patient if I mention Ayurvedic medicine A, B and C will help you treat certain urine infection. If I write like that, it may encourage patients to self medicate and it may lead to severe complications. It is the duty of the doctor to chose medicines that are right for her patients.
