Urinary Tract Infection Natural Cures - UTI Treatment and Prevention
Urinary Tract Infection

Symptoms of Urinary Tract Infection

Cystitis or infection of the bladder can cause symptoms of pain or burning sensation during urination, increased frequency of urination, uncontrolled desire to urinate, feeling of incomplete release of urine from the bladder, foul-smelling, discolored, or bloody urine, pelvic or lower abdominal pain, mild fever, and overall feeling of uneasiness.
Symptoms of kidney infection (a more severe form of urinary tract infection) include the above-mentioned symptoms of cystitis as well as vomiting or nausea, upper back and flank pain, shaking chills, very high fever, and extreme fatigue.
Infection of the urethra (also a severe form of urinary tract infection) can also cause penile discharge in men.

Preventing Urinary Tract Infection
There are certain steps that can be taken to reduce the occurrence of urinary tract infections. Here are a few suggestions:
Drink a large amount of clear fluids such as water, broths and soups, and fresh fruit and vegetable juices.
Urinate when you feel the urge to do so, and avoid “holding it in.”
Maintain proper hygiene. Wipe from the front to the back after passing bowel movements.
Sexually active women should urinate within 15 minutes after sexual intercourse to release the bacteria that may have been transmitted during the intercourse.
Avoid using feminine hygiene products such as deodorants, douches, and sprays.
Wear cotton underwear and change your underwear frequently.
Do not use deodorant sprays or other feminine products in the genital area because they can cause irritation in the urethra.

Natural Cures


Cranberries are scientifically proven to have certain compounds that reduce the ability of bacteria to adhere to bladder cells. Therefore, as a result, cranberries have the ability to prevent and cure urinary tract infections. Studies indicate that drinking cranberry juice several times each day may help to cure urinary tract infection.Preferably consume cranberry juice that is made of 100% cranberry juice without added sugar. However, cranberry juice is very tart and may be sweetened with beneficial sweeteners such as honey or maple syrup. Cranberry juice cocktail (cranberry juice mixed with other fruit juices) can also be used to cure and prevent urinary tract infection. Cranberry juice concentrate supplements are available in most health stores and they can be used instead of cranberry juice.


L. acidophilus, B. bifidum, and L. bulgaricus are considered to be probiotics, or friendly bacteria, that naturally inhabit the colon and vagina. A high level of probiotics in the vagina and intestines prevents the colonization of unwanted pathogenic bacteria such as E. coli that cause urinary tract infections. Additionally, L.acidophilus and B. bifidum are known to boost the immune system, aid in digestion, and synthesize vitamins in the intestine. Here are a few suggestions for how to use probiotics to treat urinary tract infection:

Take two capsules each of L. acidophilus and B. bifidum (or one teaspoon each of powdered supplement) along with one teaspoon of L. bulgaricus powder mixed in six to eight ounces of tepid filtered water twice each day. Continue with this therapy for two weeks.
Alternatively, take two combination capsules that contain all three probiotics in an oil-matrix carrier twice each day. This treatment should also be continued for two weeks.
Yogurt contains active L. acidophilus bacteria that can aid in treating urinary tract infection. Aside from including yogurt in your daily diet, applying yogurt right at the site of infection can also help to alleviate the burning and itching of urinary tract infection. You may also add one half of a teaspoon of L. acidophilus powder to an eight ounce cup of yogurt and use this mixture to douche the vagina.


D-Mannose is a naturally occurring simple sugar that is believed to be a safe and practical alternative for the treatment of urinary tract infections. It is absorbed very slowly in the system (approximately eight times slower than glucose). It is not directly converted into glycogen or stored in the liver upon digestion because it goes directly into the bloodstream from the upper gastrointestinal tract. D-Mannose is routed to the bladder and is mostly filtered through the kidneys. The infection-causing bacteria that are present in the urinary tract attach to the D-Mannose molecules and are expelled out of the body through urination. D-mannose supplements are available at most health stores. Follow the instructions on the label to determine what the correct dosage is for the treatment of urinary tract infection.
