What is urology?

Urology is the branch of medicine that studies, evaluates, diagnoses, and treats the urinary tract. The urinary tract includes:


  • Kidneys: remove waste and excess fluid from the blood and make urine
  • Ureters: tubes that move urine into the bladder 
  • Bladder: the hollow organ that holds urine
  • Urethra: tube that expels urine from your body


Urology also encompasses reproductive system issues in men. This is largely due to male anatomy. For example, the prostate gland surrounds the urethra. An enlarged prostate, also called benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), can cause urinary problems as well as other issues.  

What is naturopathic urology?  

Naturopathic urology approaches health care by emphasizing mind, body, and spirit health and addressing the root cause of health symptoms. 


In many cases, traditional urology provides temporary relief with medication, but naturopathic urology focuses more on your long-term results. By resolving the issue at the root of your urological problems, you can truly correct it and won’t need quick fixes. 

What problems does naturopathic urology address?

Naturopathic urology can address or help to address virtually any urological or male reproductive issue, including:


  • Urinary tract infections
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Overactive bladder
  • Kidney stones
  • Interstitial cystitis
  • BPH
  • Prostatic intraepithelial neoplasia (precancerous prostate condition)
  • Bladder, kidney, prostate, and other types of cancer
  • Male infertility
  • Erectile dysfunction 


Urologic symptoms can occur because of or alongside other health problems as well. Naturopathic medicine encompasses whole-body health, so you can find effective treatments regardless of where the problem started. 

What treatments does naturopathic urology include?

Best Naturopathic Medicine performs comprehensive testing to find hidden issues like food allergies, hormone imbalance, chemical toxicity, gut health issues, and adrenal fatigue. These tests provide a clear answer regarding the source of your urological or reproductive symptoms.


Then, you’ll receive a customized naturopathic urology treatment plan that emphasizes healing the problem at its source. Some of the varied treatment approaches include:


  • Diet recommendations
  • Lifestyle recommendations
  • High-quality nutraceuticals 
  • Intravenous (IV) nutrient therapy
  • Precision medicine, including platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or prolotherapy


Men's Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT), including Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT), is also among the available treatments. Urologists prescribe TRT through shots, pills, creams, or patches to increase the levels of testosterone.
