Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) is a chronic condition. It is common among women. While UTI can be treated with antibiotics, it is best to keep it from recurring. Frequent use of antibiotics is not good for you. Here are some tips to cure urinary tract infection without antibiotics or drugs.
Have sufficient intake of foods rich in Vitamin C. Vitamin C helps flush bacteria away. Montmorency cherry or sour cherry as well as rosehips are good sources of natural vitamin C. There are tarts as well as supplements from these fruits if you cannot obtain the fruit itself or if you cannot tolerate eating them straight. You may also take the capsule from extracts of these fruits.
Avoid foods with high content of preservatives and food colors because these can aggravate or trigger the recurrence of UTI. Minimize your intake of junk foods and most processed foods like sardines to be completely free from UTI.
Hygiene is also important to prevent the bacteria from entering from the outside. Aside from morning and evening wash, have a mid-day wash and a change in underwear. Occasionally have a wash of water with vinegar solution (1:4) to be rinsed after several minutes. For your regular washing, use your favorite feminine wash.
Drink plenty of water to reduce the high concentration of bacteria in the urine. Drinking cranberry juice is also great.
