Cystitis sufferers need to ensure an adequate liquid intake at all times, as well as drinking large volumes during an attack. Our minimal requirement is 1.5 litre( about 3 pints) per 24 hours, which is sufficient to replace fluids lost in urine, motions, perspiration and breath moisture under normal conditions.

In addition to this, you should drink drink at least a further 05-1 litres to keep your urine as dilute as possible and therefore reduce the likelihood of the urine irritating your bladder and urethral linings.

It is easy to forget the need to drink large amounts when you are not actually suffering from an attack of cystitis, especially if you are constantly busy working etc. A helpful tip is to carry liquid with you when access to drinks is limited, or when a drinks machine dispenses only strong coffee, tea, soup etc.

A plastic half litre bottle should not prove too burdensome if it helps reduce the frequency of your cystitis attacks. Remember you need extra still in hot weather and after vigorous exercise.

Healthy drinks for you to try include still or sparkling mineral water with a little juice and honey, cranberry juice, freshly squeezed vegetable and fruit juices, herbal and fruit tea such as chamomile to aid relaxation or rose hip for extra vitamin C.

Here are some suggested fruit and vegetable juices to combat different health problem:

3 tablespoon spinach juice
6 tablespoon carrot juice
To be taken twice daily beetwen meals.
