Urinary Tract Infection ~ Ailments & Remedies

These types of infections (UTIs) are the second most common reason people visit their doctors each year.

Men get UTIs, but they're much more common in women.

In fact, more than eight million women head to their doctor for treatments annually.

And 20 percent of these women will get a second UTI.

Remedy:

Unsweetened cranberry juice.

Why it works:

Cranberry juice has natural antibiotic properties.

Drinking it makes your tract an unfriendly place for troublesome bacteria.

How to use it:

Drink at least 16 oz. per day until your symptoms are gone.

You can also drink cranberry tea.

What to watch out for:

The bacteria that causes these specific infections thrive on sugar.

Only drink unsweetened cranberry juice, available at your local health food store.

The juice itself is extremely tart and if you can't tolerate the taste, look for a juice sweetened with apple or grape concentrate, or sweeten it yourself with honey, which also has antibacterial properties.

Other remedies to consider:
