Remedies to Treat Bladder Infection

[ad#ad-2] For two weeks drink about half a cup lemon juice in the morning. This is good for clearing bladder infection.

For treating this infection mix two teaspoons of apple cider vinegar and one teaspoon of honey in a glass of water. Mix well to drink for quick recovery.

Eat fruits and vegetables which contain sulfur like asparagus, spinach, cashews/almonds, Rhubarb and for acid eat cranberries, lemons, and blueberries..

Mix one teaspoon olive oil and one teaspoon garlic juice in a glass of warm water. Drink thrice a day, before meals.

You can also consume a teaspoon of pure garlic juice which is very efficient in killing the bacteria responsible for bladder infection.

Cranberry juice is very effective in preventing bladder infection. Try to drink at least eight ounces of cranberry juice everyday to prevent this infection. Keep in mind to drink 100% cranberry juice otherwise it would be ineffective.

You can have two caps of goldenseal followed by 1/2 a glass of water and 1000 mg. of vitamin C before each meal. Do this for 3-5 days.

In equal proportion use Yarrow, Uva ursi, Cornsilk and 1 1/2 tbsp of Juniper berries. In 3 cups of water simmer 1 tsp Echinea root for 20 minutes. In this water add 11/2 tsp of mixed herbs (Yarrow and others). Once cool, strain and drink this concoction. Continue this for a week.

If the infection is related to bleeding use this solution for nearly 4 days.. Make an equal combination of Shepherd’s purse, Flax seed, Uva ursi and Echinea root. In one cup of water simmer 1 tbsp mixture of these herbs for 20 minutes. Cool anddrink at least 3 – 5 cups a day.

For bladder pain and painful urination apply Comfrey leaf poultice over the bladder. You can have Pepsissewa tea, Hydrangea root or leaf tea, Cornsilk tea, or Buchu leaf tea. Avoid boiling the tea.

    Cranberry juice produces urine that is very acidic and it prevents bacteria from sticking to the walls of the bladder. If 100% cranberry juice is not available, or if you don’t like the taste of 100% cranberry juice, you can buy capsules.

    Thanks. I prefer pure cranberry juice myself, as I feel it cleanses my bladder more thoroughly than if I took capsules.

    I have found a product called clearmax on I was a frequent sufferer of urinary tract infections and literally confined to my house for weeks while on the antibiotic merry-go-round to clear up the infection. This Clearamax literally cleared my infection up in two days and I now use it as a daily maintenance program taking two capsules in the morning. I have not had an infection for over a year and I now have a new sense of freedom.

    Lemon juice is very helpful for UTI as well as Cranberry juice. Add 2 tablespoon of lemon juice to 8 oz of water and drink it. Do this for 3 to 4 times a day. It will cure UTI symptoms. Lemon acidifies urine and clears the bacteria. Also D-mannose is very effective cure for UTI. Add one teaspoon of D-mannose to 8 oz of water and drink every 4 hours. After the infection subsides, continue a maintenance dose of 1 teaspoon in 8 oz of water throught the day.

    I have suffered from UTIs for 11 years but I have found ways of managing the condition. 1)I do use cranberry tablets and stock up on them when they are on special offer. I take two three times a day and I’ve seen a decrease in my outbreaks 2)If i get a ‘twinge’ (you know the feeling that one might be coming), I drink a pint of squash with a teaspoon and a half of bicarbonate of soda. Seems to have worked, apart from this month when it was too late! 3) Go to the loo regularly, don’t hold it in, and always go before bed! 4)You HAVE to pee after sex, this is always what sets it off for me 5)Avoid too much orange juice or alcohol, if you are going to make sure you keep hydrated and keep peeing. Good alcohol (yes!!) is vodka with cranberry juice. Avoid alcopops! 6)Know your pee so you can identify if ones lurking, there’s a distinct smell!! 7) Drink water all day long and regularly. If you go to a hot country avoid sugary drinks And just to say, its got nothing to do with being dirty, it’s just a curse that some of us have to bear! But it can be managed! One more tip- don’t always rely on your doctor, you can get the antibiotics from walk in’s and minor injury units which is often a faster way of getting your hands on the trimethroprime!! If you are getting them more frequently (I was once every three months the last few years but have managed to have a 8 month break, which is a record!!) talk to your GP and pester to get referred to a urologist Hope this helps
