Urinary Tract Infection Home Remedies – Try UTI Home Remedies When Antibiotics No Longer Work.
As you may well know, bacteria are becoming resistant to antibiotics with ‘super bugs’ emerging, and this is especially relevant with Urinary Tract Infections.
Superbugs are bacteria which are very resistance to all forms of antibiotics and are causing grave concerns in the medical fraternity.
Bacteria which are resistant to antibiotics are not the only problem. Antibiotics destroy bad bacteria, including E.Coli which cause approximately 90% of all urinary tract infections, but they also destroy the good bacteria in your body – bacteria which are used to maintain a healthy immune system.
That is why you are more susceptible to a cold or the flu or many other illnesses following a course of antibiotics – they have destroyed all the good fellows and it will take time to build up your supply of good bacteria again.
According to Wikipedia under the heading Antibiotic Resistance… ‘Escherichia coli (E.Coli) and Salmonella come directly from contaminated food. Of the meat that is contaminated with E. coli, eighty percent of the bacteria are resistant to one or more drugs made; it causes bladder infections that are resistant to antibiotics. Salmonella was first found in humans in the 1970s and in some cases is resistant to as many as nine different antibiotics. When both bacterium are spread, serious health conditions arise. Many people are hospitalized each year after becoming infected, and some die as a result’.
Try Urinary Tract Infection Home Remedies as an Alternative to Antibiotics
Previously people turned to home remedies as a last resort because antibiotics were readily available and they usually did the job. People didn’t think about the consequences of a superbug emerging from the overuse of antibiotics… just as long as the urinary tract infection disappeared and that burning sensation they experienced every time they urinated was gone, they were happy.
There is a problem with one of the popular Urinary Tract Home remedies.
One of the more popular home remedies for UTI included eating cranberries or drinking cranberry juice… and although there is a very important compound in cranberries used in the elimination of urinary tract infections – there is a downside. Cranberries make your urine acidic… ideal conditions for E.Coli to live and multiply. So you are robbing Peter to pay Paul.
This problem has been overcome with the important compound being extracted separately and is readily available in most western countries. For details of this exciting new product and a comprehensive urinary tract infection home remedy Please Click Here
Some Popular Urinary Tract Infection Home Remedies…
- Vitamin C… 3000 mg daily.
As a result of the infection you almost certainly will have a weakened immune system and Vitamin C is very helpful in boosting your immune system. Try taking the Vitamin C at different times throughout the day to maintain a level of it in your body at all times.
- Water – yep good ole plain water.
The E.Coli live and multiply in your urine and by drinking lots of water you help flush them out of your system faster meaning less time for the bacteria to multiply. Coupled with Vitamin C boosting your immune system and water flushing the bacteria out… you greatly help the body eliminate the infection. You should aim to drink 1 gallon (2 litres) of water per day and it is easier if you have a glass filled with water close by at all times. Makes it easy to just reach out and have a mouthful or two regularly. Unfortunately there will be increased trips to the bathroom!
- Zinc tablets. You need to take 2 – 3 zinc lozenges per day.
Zinc assists the body in absorbing vitamins and minerals, which is especially relevant when you are taking Vitamin C and drinking lots of water. Vitamin C is water soluble and is flushed out of the system if it is not absorbed quickly. Zinc helps maintain good levels of Vitamin C in the body. Foods that are rich in Zinc include salads, nuts, bananas, fish, bran cereal and cheese.
- Increase Fiber intake.
Fiber is like water – it helps flush the system including flushing out the bad bacteria. Avocado, beans, peas, parsnip, yam (sweet potato), spinach, lentils and broccoli are high in fiber and beneficial in eliminating the ‘nasties’.
- Fruits and Vegetables.
Foods including spinach, potatoes, zucchini, onions, broccoli, green beans, avocado, grapes, pears and apples can be added to the list of home remedies for urinary tract infection.
- A very important component of any home remedy for urinary tract infection is pain relief. Getting rid of that burning sensation you feel when urinating is important. Two things that will help with pain are Nettle leaf tea and parsley tea. Nettle leaf tea is an anti-inflammatory and parsley contains a volatile oil called Apiol which is a natural antiseptic. You can easily make parsley tea by boiling 1 cup of water with 1 teaspoon of parsley and allowing it to steep for 10 minutes. Makes a welcome change from drinking a cup of water! Just be careful drinking parsley tea if you are pregnant.
- And of course Garlic which is well known for its powerful anti-bacterial properties. The best home remedy using garlic for a UTI is to combine 1 teaspoon of garlic juice with some olive oil and pop it into one of the glasses of water you drink during the day.
Hopefully the above will see you quickly on the road to recovery and you can shake off your urinary tract infection once and for all.
