Curejoy Expert James Dudley Explains:
Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) which basically effects about 8 and 10 million people per year in the US is not much of a lethal disease but it is quite painful and may need an urgent medical attention or advice as well.
Although, most of the times, the UTI is generally found among the woman folks, it is not quite a women centric infection. Even men get UTIs. The reason why women are prone to UTIs is because woman’s urethra is shorter than a man’s which makes it easier for the bacteria to cause a problem.
Common Symptoms of Urinary Tract Infection
-A burning or stinging pain whilst urinating
-Urinating more often than you usual
-Feeling you have to urinate urgently but hardly passing any urine when you try
-A small amount of blood or pus in your urine
-Experiencing cramps in the lower abdomen area
-Strong, chemically smelling urine
-Experiencing pain during sexual intercourse
-Chills or fever – but note that this only normally applies to children
What Causes Urinary Tract Infection?
There are several things that cause UTI including E. coli, Staphylococcus, Incontinence (difficulty in passing stools), Overuse of antibiotics, Diabetes, A history of recurring UTIs, Some types of birth control pills, Using strong skin cleansers, A new sexual partner or partners, Extended sessions of sexual intercourse, Contraceptives that cause irritation, Benign or malignant tumors in the urinary tract and even pregnant moms often suffer from UTIs, which is due in part to unusual pressure being exerted on the bladder and urethra. Depending on the cause, you can accordingly treat the UTI appropriately and also be aware that UTI tend to repeat in most of the cases.
How to Naturally Heal Urinary Tract Infection?
Cranberry and Blueberry Juices
Although there are quite a number of juices that can help heal UTI but among all Cranberry juice is considered to be the most efficient one. Precisely, an unsweetened cranberry juice is strongly suggested because it helps to add acid to your urine, which then makes it more difficult for the UTI bacteria to stick to the walls of your bladder. Eating the cranberries themselves is equally good for you. However, do not use processed Cranberry juice.
Blueberries comes from the same plant family as cranberries and have developed some of the same bacterial inhabiting properties. Having these in the morning hours are also highly effective if you are suffering from UTI.
As soon as you figure out that you are suffering from UTI, drinking baking soda with a liquid can indeed help. You can mix one teaspoon of baking soda with 8 fluid ounces of water. It helps to raise the pH of your urine and thus reduces the UTI infection.
The reason why fresh pineapple works wonder in treating the UTI is because it contains an enzyme called Bromelain, which can help to remedy a UTI. To be effective you should eat a cup of pineapple chunks on a regular basis (twice a day) until the infection passes.
Ginger, the most versatile of all the daily using herbs at home is one of the most important healer in this list. Since ginger is one of the best anti-inflammatory herbs, and can therefore help to prevent inflammation, reduce current inflammation, and reduce pain.
Water is basically the most important drink that humans need to get rid of most of the sickness and diseases. In the case of UTI, you may use either mineral water or distilled water, and drink at least 8 cups per day. It helps to flush out your system, and drunk on a regular basis, is not only good for your hydration, but it is also an excellent way of helping to prevent the UTI from recurring.
What To Avoid?
Some say it’s the 4 Cs that one must get rid of once he/she realizes that he/she is suffering from Urinary Tract Infection. These are chocolate, citrus, carbonation, and caffeine. These 4 things can irritate the lining of the bladder, and potentially make it easier for bacteria to adhere.
I am the "queen" of UTI's :( If you don't act on one, you risk getting a kidney infection, and it is no fun. Been there, done that. While I believe the an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, please be careful The fact is, you very well may need an antibiotic to rid yourself of a stubborn UTI. I take cranberry pills daily, and sometimes I still get an infection.
Two really helpful natural remedies are Urva Ursi tincture (drops into a glass of water every morning) prevents infections, (or 3 times a day) and Quebra Pedra tea, drink 1-3 cups of this tea every day. In the event there is an infection, increase the dose of these and drink plenty of water.

Are they kidding. They hurt like hell. The thing that works is meds. Maybe this stuff for preventing, but not once you want to die because your pee is on fire!!!
While I appreciate and follow many of your suggestions, I only know I have a UTI when horrible horrible pain starts. My doc has given me an RX to carry with me, so I can just go get the meds. I only get one about every 18-24 months. It does not present symptoms. I go from all is okay to bent over horrible pain! So, I do appreciate our meds too! After the meds I go on a long program of kefir, yogurt, etc etc.
True . unsweetened un processed cranberry juice. Drink a lot ofbit. It's very tart but can be diluted with water and it does work to clear up uti.
