Be sure to drink overnight.

These are all great suggestions, but I have a particularly tenacious UTI right now, and I couldn't figure out why it just won't go away.

I've been taking 1 tsp of baking soda in the morning and at night, drinking water all day long with unsweetened cranberry juice and Emergen-C in it, drinking veggie juice with parsley, cabbage, beets, cucumber, etc. When I realized it was always worse in the morning, it dawned on me that since I don't drink anything overnight, the bacteria are getting a chance to take hold again. So if you're really having trouble with one, try getting up in the middle of the night and drinking a big cup of water with baking soda, to keep the flushing-out going.

I'm going to start doing this, to see if it knocks it out. I'll probably also drink some asparagus water and possibly get some D-mannose today. Good luck, guys!

Kicking that infection!

Woke up at 2 am and just KNEW I had a bladder infection. This one went from 0-60 in NO TIME. Pelvic pressure, abdominal pain, even a little blood in my urine. Awful. Miserable.

Determined to kick it, I did a little of EVERYTHING. Tons of water, backing soda in water every two hours, lemon juice in water. 1 ibuprofen tablet, 1000 mg vitamin C, and hot shower. After that, I finally felt the pressure/pain go away, so I took a long nap. After my nap, I had to pee again and was able to pee completely pain free. No blood either!
Had the hubby bring me 100 percent Cranberry Concentrate from The Vitamin Shoppe. Spendy--I think he spent $17--but it's cheaper than going and getting the appointment and lab work. I took a tablespoon, and another dose of baking soda water. We shall see...Maybe I've actually kicked it!!?

I also get UTI's, Bladder Infections, and Bladder Irritation very frequently. I actually got a VCUG done today to make sure my urine was not refracting back into my kidneys. Uncomfortable procedure by the way.
What I do to prevent infections and irritation is pretty simple. I take cranberry pills every other day along with my vitamins especially if I feel any irritation at all. I also drink cranberry tea which I find at my local grocery store. I love this tea! You are getting a full glass of water while drinking it and it has a high content of cranberries in it.

So if your sick and tired of drinking plain water try this tea. It helps me out with or without irritation. I thought I was alone and the only one who got UTI's this frequently. Glad to see I'm not.

Drink water

It doesn't help fast, but the best thing to do when you have a uti is to drink lots of water. It will help flush the infection out.

A uti cured

Hi guys came on this site to find a remedy and want to say a huge thank you for your remedies the bicarbonate soda remedy has worked wonders I suffered all weekend with the symptoms and was taking cystopurin which gave temporary relief but the burning sensation and constant urge to pee would not go I tried a 1/2 teaspoon of bicarbonate soda with 100ml water and drank it fast then drank another 300mls to get rid of the taste and 5 x seven seas cranberry capsules seems to have worked wonders. So happy don't need to visit the docs for antibiotics.

I took the bicarbonate soda on the hour every hour for 3hours and it started to work on the first dose I took. Thank you once again all!

No medicine remedy

I get UTIs and yeast infections frequently, I'd say 4-8 times a year for the UTIs. Most of the time it happens when I hold it in too long or if I fall asleep after sex without washing thoroughly. Lately I've been slacking on prevention (drinking natural cranberry juices, eating lots of garlic, using a feminine hygiene gel soap or wipes). I ran around all day in a set bathing suit and now I have a UTI. Today I've taken a bath with Nivea Intimo gel, have been drinking loads of water and cranberry, and will later have a salad with raw cranberries and garlic.
I've never tried the baking soda trick, so I'm looking forward to testing that next. I hear it's also good for heartburn.

Alkaseltzer, d-mannose, uti clear

This seems to be working for me! I have terrible problems with UTI's. Recently started using. I have surgery soon. I think I'll switch over to baking soda and lemons now. Doctor said no infections before surgery. Did you know lemons become alkaline while you are digesting them. Anyways Alkaseltzer, baking soda and lemon will give you the alkaline you need to get rid of UTI. I can't use Alkaseltzer before surgery as it's a bloodthinner and I can't have bloodthinners for a week before surgery. Hope you feel better. The burning is awful! Men have no idea!

Blood in my urine

My problem started at 3pm where I go to the bathroom very often. Several hours later, the pain was getting worst then I started seeing blood in my urine and was so painful to pee.
I started panicking because we are living in an Island where medical facility is so far away. So, I started reading tips online and tried some of them. At 1:30am, I tried 1 Tablespoon of baking soda in a glass of water then lower the dose to half a teaspoon in a glass of water every 30 mins and I chewed two 400mg cranberry tablet every hour. After 1-2 hrs, I noticed the blood disappear slowly and felt less pain urinating and finally I was able to sleep at 4am.

I keep taking baking soda and water the next day 'till I see a doctor. That was my quick relief of my problem.

My uti cure

Suffered for several years with uti.. Tried everything d-mannose, cranberry tablets, natures remedy uti treatment... None worked. Came across advertisement for ellura. It's the only cranberry supplement proven to works and it does. Very expensive $45 for 30, but cheaper than doctor bill. Also if I ever feel like I'm getting one I double up on ellura and take goldenseal... Next morning test strips will be clear. Only things I've found that work for me. Hope it helps someone else too!

Cornsilk is a miracle worker.. Boil cornsilk in a pot for 15mins with about 250ml of water.. And drink the water. Do it once a day until the uti goes away which is probably three days. Put warm water in your hot water bottle, take of your panties and place directly on your girly parts for instant relief oooh that helps!! Always sleep with a hot water bottle at night. Keeping your body warm helps the body fight and expel the bacteria faster. And always keep your self super hydrated drink a glass every 30mins for two hours.
