Frequent Urination in Men and Women: Causes and Treatment
Causes of frequent trips to the bathroom
Frequent urination can be caused by 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, often with cold feet and other symptoms.
Frequent urination in women can also occur during pregnancy, especially at night. Both men and women can get this symptom after radiation therapy. Diabetes causes this symptom too since high blood sugar levels (over 10 ml/l) stimulate urine production.
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 washroom trips
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 during diabetes complications, late cancer, last stages of HIV-AIDS, etc.
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 80% of people with frequent toilet trips (especially at night), there is one simple and 100% natural factor and technique that immediately reduces frequent urination. You can find the name of this method right below here as your bonus content.
Many other lifestyle changes (prevention of supine sleep at night for men and women, nose breathing at night or during sleep, and others) also have a quick positive effect. More details can be found in the Section Learn.
