Pyelonephritis is a bacterial infection of the upper renal tract; it can be acute or chronic.
Usually, the infection is localized to a single kidney, including renal interstitial tissue and renal pelvis.
In most cases pyelonephritis is caused by:
- urinary bladder infections (cystitis, urethritis, prostatitis) which do not respond to treatment or relapse and can spread towards the kidneys
- anatomical abnormalities in the structure of the kidney which can hamper the complete elimination of the urine
- other chronic conditions that disrupt the activity of the renal system: kidney stones, uric diathesis, diabetes, major endocrine disorders, prostate adenoma, vesico-urethral reflux, renal system tumors
- reduced consumption of liquids for long periods of timePoor posture produces a deficient blood irrigation of the kidneys and thus reduces the metabolic changes and local immunity
movement, inflammation or injury of a certain lumbar vertebrae, located in an energetic, nervous and vascular are called the cross of life (an energetic center with a vital role in the proper functioning of the urogenital system)
At the onset, chronic pyelonephritis may present symptoms similar to cystitis: urination accompanied by burning, cloudy urine, constant need to urinate, incomplete emptying of the bladder and micturition disorders. Later, after the inflammatory process has spread, or in acute forms, pain occurs, also febrile episodes (39-40 degrees), chills, fatigue and exhaustion, drowsiness, general malaise, headache, decreased appetite, soft stool, edema, dryness of the skin and of the mucous membranes.
The traditional treatment of pyelonephritis includes medicinal herbs extracts and acupuncture sessions. It aims to balance the kidney’s energy in the first instance. And to restore the functions of the kidneys, because the kidneys store the vital energy of the body and any major renal disorder can produce other organic imbalances or diseases. Regeneration of kidney structure is achieved by using stem cells from bone marrow.
At cerebral level, the traditional medicine specialist acts by specific acupuncture techniques to stabilize the brain functions that coordinate the kidney area. Immunity in the kidney area is amplified so that the conditions which favored the onset of infection is cancelled.
