The first from a 75-year-old woman and the second from a 45-year-old female patient both with symptoms of dysuria and diagnosed with urinary tract infection, with positive urine culture for bacteria (more than a hundred thousand colonies per ml). Results: All patients presented improvement of the symptoms and urine cultures positive for bacteria before the treatment and negative urine culture after the treatment only with Chinese dietary counselling, acupuncture and apex ear bloodletting, not requiring antibiotics use in neither of the cases.
