I found the following article very helpful. It’s taken from http://www.ehow.com/how_4966213_stop-frequent-urination.html.
Frequent urination is a common symptom of more serious health conditions, including bladder infection, urinary tract infection, pelvic inflammatory diseases and venereal diseases, all of which could lead to complications and should be diagnosed and treated early by professional medical care providers. However, frequent urination may affect healthy individuals as well. This article provides information on how to stop frequent urination for generally healthy people by improving the quality of fluid consumption, calming an overactive bladder with herbs and fruits, and strengthening pelvic muscles with exercise.
How to stop frequent urination naturally:
- Remove all caffeine from your diet. Stop drinking green tea, black tea, coffee and sodas that contain caffeine. Caffeine is a powerful diuretic that sucks fluids out of your cells and directly stimulates urination. Without caffeine, you will not feel as dehydrated and your overall fluid intake will decrease.
- Replace all caffeinated drinks with all-natural fruit smoothies, fruit juices, herbal teas or whole fruits. The body can use moisture and fluids from fruits and natural sources more effectively than it can tap water and manufactured beverages, because natural sources of moisture generally have more bioavailable molecule sizes (smaller and easier to absorb) and contain better electrolyte and nutrient profiles. Try eating a mandarin orange rather than going for that soda when you’re thirsty.
- Drink cranberry juice and take cranberry extract to tone and cleanse your urinary system and help clear up minor inflammation. An overgrowth of bacteria in your urinary system may not cause disease but may stimulate the bladder to over-react. Cranberry is a powerful natural cleanser for the human bladder and pelvic organs, including the reproductive organs, that can ameliorate your frequent urination.
- Add horsetail extract to your diet. Horsetail is a natural bladder tonic, and taking this herb will improve the overall health of your urinary system.
- Do Kegels. Kegel exercises are performed by squeezing your buttocks and lower pelvic muscles together as tight as you can for at least 10 seconds, releasing and then squeezing again. The easiest way to start is to consciously stop urination midstream, count to 10, then resume urine flow. You can also practice this exercise outside the bathroom, or anywhere and anytime you like, for as long as you like, to strengthen pelvic muscles and increase control over urination.
