Bladder infection

by (775) Updated June 13, 2013 at 7:56 PM Created April 07, 2013 at 7:25 PM

I recently returned from Punta Cana. I tried eating paleo while I was on vacation there but slipped a few times. I seem to have the symptoms of a bladder infection. I am not prone to them. What natural cures can I use? I'm not really interested in antibiotics. I've started drinking cranberry juice - will this help?

EDIT: Nevermind....I searched UTI and got my answers.

According to the cranberry episode of Good Eats, Cranberries provide a limited aid in reducing the risk of getting a UTI, but do nothing to cure them.

I just drink loads of fluids and wait til my body gets rid of it. I only go for antibiotics if I start peeing blood or get any back pain/fever/etc. 8/10 times my immune system does it's job

For next time or for someone else's sake...My favorite way to deal with a UTI is to eat about 8 or ten vitamin C wafers. The sugary chewable kind. Knocks it right out!

Antibiotics are necessary if you do have a urinary tract infection. Cranberry juice won't hurt, as hydration in general will help relieve the pain a little as it dilutes the bacteria and you pee some of it out, but it won't cure the bacterial infection. When the pain gets bad enough you'll have a better incentive to use the wonders of modern medicine.

Sorry you aren't interested in antibiotics, but that's life. Or death, if you would rather have a raging bacterial shitstorm in you than a few pills.
