For UTI (bladder infection) I have used this home remedy with a consistant amount of success. Lets face it you have to nip a UTI in the bud early or your going to end up on antibiotics! Before beginning the treatment I found a warm bath or shower relaxing for the bladder contractions that are assoc. with a UTI plus cleansing the outside of the body is crucial to preventing and curing a UTI. Take an anti inflammatory such as ADVIL to ease the pain and contractions, if you desire. Make a solution of a few tablespoons Bragg's unfiltered apple cider vinegar with the 'mother' (natural cider bacteria) mixed with a few tablespoons of unsweetened cranberry juice and 8 oz. warm or cold filtered distilled water. NO chlorine! All of these ingredients can be found at health food stores. Drink this solution immediately and all at once for the fastest relief of symptoms. Take two cranberry tablets each time you drink the solution, for the fastest relief. Be careful not to drink too much cranberry juice because this will make your urine acidic and it will burn to urinate for this reason as well. Drink the above solution every two hours with lots of filtered non-chlorinated water (The chlorine kills the good bacteria in the vinegar). If you only have tap water available boil it first. Kombucha, a fermented tea, which is available at most health food stores, is also helpful in relieving symptoms. Plain greek yogurt is also a good choice. The idea is to rebalance yor natural 'good' bacteria while flushing out the 'bad' bateria that is making you sick. Echinacia Tea is a good idea as well to both hydrate, flush and boost your immune defenses. This part may sound silly but I was desperate to relieve my symptoms quickly so I dabbed a little of the apple cider vinegar on a cotton ball and applied it topically to my urethra and felt instant but, alas, fleeting relief. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT... No sex, alcohol, sugary drinks or caffeine until you are three days no symptoms without remedy or you'll find your self back at step one and in pain again. If your symptoms do not improve within a week or your have nausea, fever or back pain seek a medical professional's help. UTIs can turn ugly fast so don't delay too long if you don't find relief using my method. Good Luck! Feel Better!
