Bathe in a boiling hotpot (火锅) whilst simultaneously inserting several baozi (包子) into ones anal orifice.

 

Like all TCM, this is 100% guaranteed NOT to work.

Drinking hot water might fix this.

I know someone with recurrent urinary tract infections (I guess this what you call UTIs). Various hospitals, various doctors, roughly the same prescription : a dose of antibiotics. Sometime with additional expensive stuffs without clear labels nor explanations of what it does and why it's described, just "It's TCM".

My observation : So in China, it seems that they use antibiotics for UTIs. The additional TCM can't be accounted for, because it's not even labelled and it's not prescribed in a consistent manner (give X for diagnostic Y). Think "medicine", not "<human group> medicine". There's science and there's feel-good fluff.

Bacterial infections are cured by antibiotics. China has plenty of those.

@ScotsAlan 

 

Also, cut out things like caffeine, alcohol, spicy food, nicotine, carbonated drinks and artificial sweetness.

 Did I just look for this information online myself? Well done me ! 

you know the internet is a great thing, you can find out so much by yourself if you have the energy to type on a keyboard. (unless of course you want to find out dangerous information like quick and easy, non-medical remedies for common problems)

Stop inserting objects into your urinary tract might help...

Firstly, prevention is better than the cure. In future, wear a condom when you shag a hooker. No brainer there.

It is probably an NSU. Try antibiotics and wash your whistle.

TCM doesn't pass the common sense test.  Think about it.

So my answer would be the same as the others.  

Special mention of Sorrel's answer...thanks for that, Sorrel.  My daily chuckle taken care of just in the nick of time.

These things (daily chuckles) are becoming something of a rare commodity for me of late.

I feel like saying "fuk China!", but I won't.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
