December 20, 2019


SARAH HAUER: Hi. I’m Sarah Hauer. SIG HAUER:
And I’m Sig Hauer, and we’re professional practitioners of traditional Chinese medicine.
SARAH HAUER: We’re here on behalf of Expert Village. SIG HAUER: And welcome to our video.
We also treat many different forms of urogenital problems, urogenital disorders such as stress
incontinence, UTIs, urinary tract infections, and impotence. And urogenitally, we can also
treat sexual dysfunction, erectile dysfunction, those types of things as well. SARAH HAUER:
Urinary tract infections are quite common and we’ve treated a lot of them. They range
in degrees of acuteness. Some people have urinary tract infections that come on very
quickly and it’s very painful and they experience bloody urine. Now, in those situations we’re
recommending a looser formula which are the herbs behind us and with our looser formula,
we can help relieve the pain and symptoms within 30 minutes to an hour of taking that
formula. It’s very strong and it’s very effective. Now, there’s other UTIs where they’re kind
of a low-grade, long-term, but where bacteria still pick up in the urine and we can treat
those with prepared formulas and as well as looser formulas, but Chinese herbs and acupuncture
quite successfully treat UTIs. We look at urinary tract infections, it’s an imbalance
in the body; it’s not just in the urinary system and by balancing the other areas of
the body–and particularly, it’s a fire, a toxic heat that is systemically happening
but draining out through the urinary tract. And by treating that from that perspective,
in that direction, we can not only treat the acute symptom of the UTI but we can help prevent
UTIs from recurring and we can strengthen the whole body. So, it’s very important that
you continue your course of treatment until the symptoms are gone, but we can really remedy
urogenital problems. Yeast infections in women are quite common too, and they are also an
indication of an overall imbalance in dampness and heat, sometimes cold systemically throughout
the body, and by taking those formulas we do strengthen the constitution and prevent
them from recurring. A lot of women suffer from recurring yeast infection or recurring
urinary tract infections and these can be common around hormonal changes during the
month as well as hormonal changes in your life during menopause or perimenopause, these
things are quite common, and Chinese medicine treats this very effectively. A lot of Western
medications, antibiotics can bring on yeast infections; we can help women really avoid
that as well.
