Getting a unitary tract infection, or UTI, is never an enjoyable experience, and chances are that if you’re a woman you’ve probably had one at least once in your life. It’s the second most common infection that occurs, and it’s more common for females than males. A UTI occurs when bacteria enter the urinary tract. It affects multiple parts of the body such as the bladder, kidneys, and urethra. Antibiotics are the usual treatment for a UTI, but there are other treatments that can be used with antibiotics or as an alternative treatment.
It is said that unsweetened cranberries can be used to treat a UTI. They are helpful for clearing the urinary tract of harmful bacteria.
Taking probiotics helps get rid of a urinary tract infection because it supplies the body with healthy bacteria. Providing the body with more good bacteria than bad bacteria helps the body to heal more efficiently.
Drink More Water
Drinking a lot of water is one of the quickest ways to treat a UTI because it helps to flush out the bad bacteria that is in the urinary tract. Make sure that you urinate whenever you feel the need to go, and that is what flushes the infection from the system.
Taking vitamin C not only helps to boost the immunity, but it also makes the urine more acidic, which gets rid of bacteria and helps to get the infection out of the system quicker.
The symptoms of a UTI include pain when urinating, abdominal pain, cloudy urine, and feeling the need to urinate, but not being able to fully empty the bladder. There are other symptoms as well, but these are the most common ones. If the natural treatments described above to not fully alleviate the infection, you should see a doctor to get antibiotics prescribed and get further care.
