What is the best home remedy for a urinary tract infection?   


urinary tract infection remedies

Most of us have been told to drink cranberry when we have experience that painful burning sensation or cramping due to a urinary tract infection, but you may be surprised to learn that cranberry juice can actually make a bladder infection worse.  "Why?" you may ask.  The answer is pH:  an alkaline bladder tends to breed bacteria (E. coli), in which case, an acidifying remedy is in order -AND- an acid bladder most frequently is a sign of fungus (candida, yeast), in which case, an alkalizing remedy is necessary.

So, what is a person to do when he or she is in excruciating pain and in need of instant relief?

1) Test your urine pH (Contact me to purchase a kit for only $10-- be sure to type pH KIT in the subject line)

2) If urine pH is ACID, then drink a glass of water with the juice of one LEMON.  Other quick alkalizers include:
  • One glass of water with 1 tsp. of baking soda
  • The juice from a can of black olives  
  • A bath with 2 c. of epsom salts & 1/2 c. baking soda  
  • Coral calcium 
3) If urine pH is ALKALINE, then drink a glass of CRANBERRY juice.  Other quick acidifiers include:
  • Vitamin C (ascorbic acid)
  • Sulfur (MSM, glucosamine sulfate, garlic)

"This is something that has made me so angry and heated during the past couple of months! We have spent thousands of dollars in the "medical" world over the past 2 years, only to never get any real answers or solid treatments of the problems that were occurring in our little family unit. Acute medicine served its purpose for me so I am thankful it is there, but other than that, solid answers were nowhere to be found. For myself or my boy..... READ MORE about Kelly's journey
