Herbal Remedies for UTIs


| 11/25/2014 2:42:00 PM


Urinary tract infections (UTIs) just are not fun. Bacteria can invade your urinary system for many reasons, causing pain and pressure in the pubic area, a burning sensation during urination, and later, fever and nausea. Women are 10 times more likely to get a UTI, and more than 50% of women will have at least one during their lifetime.* If left untreated, a UTI can become a kidney infection, which is much more difficult to treat.

Here are some tried-and-true natural remedies for UTIs—without antibiotics that will throw your systems out of whack.**

Cranberries

Hydrate

Water, water, water. It may hurt, but staying hydrated is necessary to be able to flush out the bacteria in your system. Water also keeps your immune system running smoothly and your cells happy, which can speed your recovery. The current recommendation is at least 8 glasses of water a day.

Cranberries

Cranberries (and blueberries) contain substances that keep bacteria from sticking to bladder tissue, making it much easier to clear out. Drink 12-24oz of unsweetened cranberry juice a day, or a 400mg supplement.



Antimicrobial Herbs

There are many herbs that are shown to deter bacteria. Try one or a combination of yarrow, Oregon grape root, goldenseal, garlic, or rosemary brewed in a tea.
