  Abstract Urinary tract infection (UTI) is the most common bacterial infection in women, with 50%-60% having at least one episode of infection at some point of their lives. Recurrences are common (66%); Escherichia coli is the most common causative organism. Uncomplicated UTI, which is the focus of this article, responds well to short courses of antibiotics, but, after repeated use, emergence of antibiotic resistance is a major issue.

Use of the combination of points for symptom control; and selective use of points according to Disharmony patterns for each particular patient; and supportive use of Extra Meridian Yin Qiao Mai, which has beneficial effects on all aspects of UTI, can treat most patients with UTI effectively. In addition, control of symptoms and prevention of recurrence can be achieved.
