Urinary tract infections are usually the most common reasons to go to the doctor. UTIs are some of the most frequent clinical bacterial infections in women, accounting for nearly 25 percent of all infections.
If you have ever had a urinary infection, you will probably never forget the symptoms. They usually start with a sudden and frequent need to go to the toilet. When you get there, you can “squeeze” just a little urine that is usually accompanied by a burning sensation. In extreme cases it may be accompanied by fever, chills, back pain and even blood in urine.
The good news is that there are many ways to attack this health condition:
1. Baking soda
The urinary tract infection lasting more than two days usually requires a doctor’s intervention. Untreated, UTI can infect the kidneys, turning this into a much more serious problem.
To prevent a urinary tract infection, add 1 teaspoon of baking soda in a glass of water and drink it – this will help eliminate infections.
Baking soda neutralizes acidity in the urine, accelerating the recovery process. So, consume 1 glass daily for 10 days and you’ll get rid of the urinary tract infection.
Cranberries have very strong action in inhibiting bacteria responsible for urinary tract infection. Cranberry juice can prevent and treat urinary tract infection. It acts as an antibiotic, managing to prevent bacteria that settle in the urinary tract.
Most likely, as soon as you have one of the symptoms associated with urinary tract infection, eat 1-2 glasses of cranberry juice.
If symptoms persist, go to the doctor.
Bromelain is an enzyme that is found in pineapple. A recent study showed that people who consumed bromelain, which acts as an antibiotic, managed to get rid of urinary tract infection.
Consume a cup of pineapple juice daily for 10 days and you’ll get rid of urinary tract infection in a natural way.
For a stronger effect of the above treatments, it is advisable to consume as much water (8-10 glasses a day) to cleanse the urinary tract.
