As stated in The Essential Herbal for Natural Health by Holly Bellebuono, “When healthy, the kidneys regularly pump urine out of the body and expel metabolic waste. When they are unhealthy, you feel a burning sensation or pain during urination, swelling, soreness, backache, headache, and often fever. If these symptoms persist, see a qualified health care practitioner.”
The urinary tract is a common location for infection, which can happen at any age. Babies and toddlers are prone to urinary tract infections (UTIs) simply because they put their hands in their mouths so frequently; teenagers, especially young women, can get this type of infection as a result of new hormone fluctuations.
Adult women sometimes contract UTIs because of sexual activity, and menopausal women can get them from a decrease in progesterone and general vaginal dryness.
