A bladder infection can dominate one's thoughts and inhibit physical activities and movement as a result of a constant urge to pass water, which typically result in an extremely painful process with little or no success. In addition, its is not uncommon to also experience other symptoms like upper back and side pain, high fever, shaking and chills, nausea and vomiting. Pelvic pain in women and rectal pain in men is also common.

Traditionally anti-acids are used in the treatment of mild instances of bladder infections, and antibiotics in more severe cases.

The medication provides temporary relieve, but in many instance the bladder infection returns in a matter of days because the root cause of the bladder infection was not addressed.
In addition the overuse of antibiotics is well documented and its effectiveness over the long run might not be preferable.
Cranberry is also widely used to manage bladder infections, but generally large quantities of cranberry or related products have to be consumed to be effective. This can be rather expensive and negatively affect one's diet.
