The 'natural remedy' world needs to meet the hard-science world when it comes to UTI's. Treating a UTI has everything to do with which microbe you're trying to kick.

If you have an e-coli infection, D-Mannose, cranberry pills, and tons of water work great to wash out the infection. Cystex tablets also help.

However, if you're working with a gram positive bacteria like staph saprophyticus, it's a whole different ball game. You can't just wash saprophyticus out. You must actively kill it. You can do this by taking curcumin, turmeric, or forskolin which raise the cAMP levels in your immune system. cAMP kills gram positive bacteria by creating pores in bacteria cell membrane walls. Substances that directly hurt staph are onions, raw garlic and paprika. So eating raw onions, garlic and 'shoving it up there' may help. You can keep gram positive bacteria infections from getting worse by keeping the pH of your urine high by drinking baking soda water. This inhibits the bacteria from creating slimy biofilms, but doesn't completely kill bacteria cultures.

A lot of times women get reinfected with the same bacteria, so simply diagnosing which strain goes a long way towards treating it for years.

this makes sense to me-b/c I had yeast infection symptoms ( after a course of antibiotics and a steroid shot for a respiratory problem) that did not respond to repeated treatments (Monostat)
I tried the garlic and it worked and I tried to change my diet to keep it at bay. I have since gotten lax on the diet and have developed a UTI- KILLER burning especially after I took cranberry pills -again in desperation I took a tablespoon of baking soda in a glass of water. HELP!!! Now what !?! Do I have a systemic problem and how much Turmeric do I take to get things in order? Does coconut oil help as well?

...was specifically addressing my question to C Day whose comment indicated the importance of knowing what KIND of UTI you are dealing with...
