What Causes Frequent Urination | Causes and Treatment
Causes of frequent urination
Frequent urination can occur due to too large urinary output (polyuria) or due to inability of the urinary bladder to keep even small quantities of urine. The healthy bladder can contain up to 700-1,000 ml (or about 3-4 cups), while a variety of health problems can reduce this amount down to about 300 ml (about 1 cup) or less. Normal daily output is about 1.5-2 liters. However, people with low body-O2 content often produce up to 3-4 liters.
In some cases, people can experience both increased total volume and reduced volume for one toilet trip.
Healthy people require no more than 3-4 toilet trips per day, with no trips during night sleep. However, when one's health is compromised, up to 8 or more trips are necessary. Some people require up to 3-5 trips at night. This often happens due to prostate problems in men.
Frequent urination in women can also occur during pregnancy. Both men and women can get this symptom after radiation therapy.
Apart from prostate problems and UTI (urinary tract infections), most cases of frequent urination take place due to some structural abnormalities (inflammation, tumors, diverticula and so on) in the abdominal area. This is the reason why people with digestive problems, duodenal ulcers, Crohn's disease, Candida yeast overgrowth, irritable bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease, diverticulitis and many other disorders have frequent washroom trips with reduced amount of urine (usually less than 500 ml during flare-ups). In fact, their volume of urine is a sensitive indicator of their digestive health, as it is explained in more detail on the page devoted to digestive health.
Warning. In some cases, frequent urination is accompanied by other (more serious) symptoms, such as fever, back or side pain, a discharge from the genital organs, bloody or cloudy urine, shaking chills, vomiting, fatigue, or sudden weight loss.
Virtually all above-considered health problems have the same main cause. This cause is also the key cause of frequent urination. The graph below explains this cause. It also explains why frequent urination was more rare about 2-3 generations ago.
Treatment of frequent urination
Since overbreathing causes nearly all health conditions with frequent urination, the smartest treatment of frequent urination is to eliminate the cause: low body-O2 levels. People with above-described conditions have only about 15 seconds for the body-oxygen test, while the norm is about 40 s. In severe cases, their body O2 is about 10 s or less.
As clinical evidence of over 150 Soviet and Russian MDs indicate, even 5-10 s improvement in body O2 nearly always leads to reduction in frequent urination both in men and women. For some conditions, about 30 s for the morning body O2 is enough to eliminate night trips and achieve average frequency of urination. Some other conditions require up to 40 s for the body-O2 test 24/7.
For over 90% of people, Earthing or electrical grounding of the body to Earth (for electrons with their antioxidant properties) is one of the easiest and simplest methods to immediately reduce frequent urination. Many other lifestyle changes (prevention of supine sleep, nose breathing during sleep, and others) also have a quick positive effect. More details can be found in the Section Learn.
