In brief: Yes

Our bodies as a whole usually do a great job of self-repair; as long as there is nothing to hinder the work efforts.
Examples include poor nutrition, certain disease processes, certain exogenous substances and medications.

In brief: No

Unfortunately, the only organ know to rejuvenate itself is the liver, if the damage is not too severe or constant.
3 ways to keep bladder healthy: drink 6-8 glasses of water per day, not sodas, alcohol, or coffee. Avoid tobacco, either direct or secondhand. Learn kegel exercise.

In brief: Depends....

It depends on what it is healing from! from a urinary tract (bladder) infection - yes.
From cancer - no. We need a little more information on what you're healing from. Or go see your urologist for answers specific to your case.
