4 Comments for the Kidney Infection Home Remedy


I have to agree with Angi at 2012-06-03 02:21:15.
All the remedy listed here are great for uti (urinary tract infection or irritation), but an actual kidney infection is nothing to play with. If you are or if you know a holistic healer, then yes, by all means, go the natural way. But, make sure your condition is monitored by a professional.
I have suffered from kidney stones my entire life, and the cranberry juice, apple cider vinegar, baking soda, garlic oil have helped me avoid many infections. However, the only way I ever got rid of an ongoing infection was good old bactrim.
So, do all these helpful home remedies to AVOID the infection and you will save yourself a lot of pain and hassle and doctor bills.
Btw, don't mix the vinegar and baking soda. LOL

What about us that are allergic to bactrim and end up worse for the wear? I was put on it recently and ended up in more pain then before. Didn't even know I was allergic.


never ever take ibuprofen when there is an issue with your kidney. It can cause kidney failure. My husband has chronic kidney stones and has had them for over 30 years. (and by chronic I mean 10/12 months per year)

This is a direct quote:

Ibuprofen may impair the ability of the kidney to cope with low renal blood flow states due to inhibition of prostaglandin-dependent afferent arteriolar vasodilation. Renal function may be further compromised in patients with heart failure, hypovolemia, cirrhosis, nephrotic syndrome, or hypoalbuminemia. Additional risk factors for ibuprofen-induced renal insufficiency are advanced age and concomitant use of diuretics.

A case-controlled study suggested that patients who consumed 5000 or more pills containing NSAIDs during their lifetime may be at increased risk of end-stage renal disease.

Patients with reduced renal function may be at increased risk for renal side effects.

Renal side effects have included mild renal insufficiency, urinary retention, nephrotic syndrome with or without renal failure, acute renal failure due to tubulointerstitial nephritis, papillary necrosis, and acute tubular necrosis.


well, I guess I'll have to figure out something else then! I'm deathly allergic to vinegar (anaphylaxis)
