Title: 14 Natural Home Remedies for UTI Pain & Discomfort

14 Natural Home Remedies for UTI Pain Discomfort
  • If youve experienced a urinary tract infection
    (UTI), well, you understand theres a reason the
    acronym rhymes with cry. You sit on the toilet
    darn near blubbering because you cant pee but
    you feel like you have to-oh how you feel like
    you have to! And when/if you do manage to get a
    little out, it burns with the fire of ten
    thousand suns. Then you go about your day
    crunched over and cramping and absolutely

Drink Water-A lot of Water
This may not sound like the most extraordinary
remedy, but it is one of the most important
things you can do when you have a UTI. It can
help flush out bacteria, and (almost) more
importantly, it gives you something to actually
push out when you pee! A lot of home remedies for
urinary tract infections are drinks because you
should always be flushing fluid through your
system to give it a helping hand in getting rid
of the nasty bacteria.
Go Pee!
It may sound obvious, but when you need to
pee-UTI or not- do it! If you hold it in, you
increase the chance that bacteria will develop
and multiply and cause an infection. If you do
have a UTI, every time you pee you get out a
little bit more of that bacteria. Even though it
can be uncomfortable, peeing every chance you get
is a vital part of recovering.
Drink Soda
No, not soda as in a sugary soft drink, soda as
in baking soda, that miraculous substance that
can help anything from heartburn to, of course,
UTIs. Baking soda is an alkaline substance-the
opposite of acidic-which means it can help
neutralize or lessen the acidity of your urine.
If you find yourself resisting the urge to pee
because of a burning sensation, baking soda can
help ease the discomfort.
Enjoy Parsley Water
Aside from the fact that it makes a wonderfully
refreshing after dinner drink, parsley water can
help relieve a urinary tract infection and speed
up the healing process by acting as a diuretic
Chew Some Celery Seeds
Celery seeds also act as a diuretic, due mainly
to one of the constituents of celery oil,
butylphthalide. If parsley water just isnt your
thing, chewing a handful of celery seeds can help
increase the production of urine.
Mmm Cucumbers
This is an easy one for me-I love cucumbers! I
dont know why, but theyre one of my favorite
snacks. While other kids at lunch were busy
swapping candy bars, I was eyeing the cucumber
slices. Thanks to their high water content,
cucumbers are a great way to get to get extra
fluid through your system when you find yourself
having a hard time drinking enough water.
Avoid the 4 Cs
Chocolate, citrus, carbonation, and
caffeine-these are 4 things that you should avoid
if you find yourself getting UTIs frequently.
Use Heat
Its not just peeing that hurts when you have a
urinary tract infection-the inflammation and
irritation can cause a constant, nagging
discomfort that makes you feel painfully cramped
Cranberry Juice
Cranberry juice is bit further down than you
might expect on a list of home remedies for a
UTI, but its helpfulness is not set in stone as
much as people seem to think. The idea behind it
is that the bacterium that causes UTIs have
fimbria (hair-like) appendages-that make it
possible to cling onto the lining of the urethra
Ginger Tea
No list dealing with any condition that involved
any kind of inflammation would be complete
without ginger.
Start Feeling Blue
Blueberries are from the same genus as
cranberries, Vaccinium, and may also help ward
off potential UTIs by affecting the fimbria of
the bacteria trying to attach itself to the
urinary tract. Blueberry juice isnt as easy to
come by as cranberry juice
Hot, Horseradish
Originally from Europe and a member of the
cabbage family, horseradish is known for spicy,
pungent, sinus-clearing spread made from the
white roots of the plant. A natural compound in
the plant, allyl isothiocyanate (AITC), has a
strong antimicrobial effect.
Cream of Tartar Lemon
This is an old home remedy, not a shiny
this-new-study-just-found type of remedy, but I
love it anyways. Sometimes these old gems work
better than anything else you can hunt down, and
sometimes they dont make any difference at all.
