The urinary bladder is a hollow organ made up of fibres and lined with mucous membrane. Ordinarily, the bladder has the capacity to hold about 750ml (almost a quart) of fluid. Since the fibre cells are elastic, like rubber, the bladder is able to expand greatly without suffering any damage.
According to the amount of fluid collected, pressure is exerted on the walls of the bladder and, as it mounts, this triggers the feeling of needing to pass water. However, the amount of fluid present in the bladder is not the only force causing the urge for elimination. External influences such as exposure to cold produce it too. Having cold feet or stepping barefoot onto cold tiles or a cement floor cause a contraction of the bladder wall and a strong need to pass water, even if the bladder is only partially filled. A bladder infection creates the same urge, but often the patient is able to produce only a few drops of water while suffering pain and discomfort. The bladder is one of the body's most sensitive organs, and one that reacts to physical as well as emotional stimuli in an unusually strong way.
Generally, inflammation of the bladder, or cystitis, is a result of a cold. 'Whatever results from a cold can only be taken away though heat' is an ancient law of natural therapy. Since it also applied to the bladder, hot herbal packs, compresses and prolonged sitz baths are very successful aids in treating cystitis. The water used to prepare a compress should be as hot as the hands can bear when wringing out the cloth. The sitz bath should have a temperature of 37-38°C (98-99°F) in order not to cause any congestion. This should be carefully observed, particularly if the patient has high blood pressure or a weak heart. The sitz bath should be continued for half an hour, with hot water being added from time to time to maintain a constant temperature. Certain bacteria such as staphylococcus, streptococcus and sometimes colibacillus can often be responsible for bladder infections.
In rare cases the bladder may be affected by tuberculosis, a condition more likely to occur if the patient already has kidney tuberculosis, which permits the bacillus to enter the bladder through the kidneys and manifest itself at the slightest irritation. Chronic cases of cystitis may be connected with any of the above-mentioned causes. The symptoms of cystitis are pain or burning sensations on passing urine. Due to the infection and irritation, a strong urge to pass water persists. The urine generally contains some red and white blood cells, is cloudy and forms white, slimy sediment when left standing.
