Negative UTI Test?

Negative tests don’t always mean there’s no infection

UTIs can become repetitive, relentless, and for some chronic

😟 In such cases, it’s not uncommon for tests to come back negative despite uncomfortable UTI symptoms.

🇬🇧 What many people don’t realise is that the cultures run by GP clinics here in the UK are not as sensitive as they could be. The amount of bacteria picked up in the culture needs to be relatively high for a UTI to be diagnosed. This means that low grade infections, or partially treated infections are often missed and left to linger, causing chronic, low grade cystitis-type symptoms.

Natural Chronic UTI Treatment

🔑 The key to long term cystitis treatment in these situations is to clear any infection, which I address using natural antimicrobials.

❗ In addition, and equally vital, is  to also correct the susceptibility to the infections.

Susceptibility to UTIs can typically be related to:

1️⃣ Biofilms: these are caused by certain bacteria and fungi, and can make it much harder for antimicrobials and antibiotics to reach the infection. This is a common reason why UTIs are insufficiently treated, and are often referred to as embedded infections.

2️⃣ Leaky gut and poor gut health: the gut is packed with bacteria, and when it is allowed to migrate to the wrong place, such as the bladder via leaky gut, this can set up repeated infections. Other issues, such as SIBO are also related.

3️⃣ Stress and trauma: stress is such a common trigger for urinary tract problems, and this too is something that can be helped with herbs and nutritional support.

4️⃣ Rundown body: if your body is rundown, the mechanics and detox pathways can be hindered or sluggish, making it harder for your body to stay infection-free.


When it comes to UTIs, there’s more than meets the eye…

💭 Did you know that urinary tract infections (UTIs) can have an emotional component too? It’s a fascinating aspect often intertwined with our health.

🌟 Past traumas and emotional stressors can contribute to UTIs or exacerbate their symptoms. The body and mind are interconnected, and addressing both is crucial for holistic well-being.
