|BETTER BUT NOT CURED (1)||7%|
[YEA] Hi! I had the definate beginnings of a UTI last night, and it was getting worse. I took magnesium and zinc, tried to drink sea salt in water (didn't make it too far, since burning pee is bad enough w/o drinking an emetic), and then took the alka seltzer. So, it could've been a combination of these remedies, but as soon as I took the alka seltzer it was GONE. Woo-hoo! Just thought it needed more emphasis as a possible remedy, it's something you might have around the house (b/c these things always seem to hit at night! Why is that?!), and it won't hurt anything to give it a try, as compared to trying to drink salt water or ACV, either of which to me are worse than the infection. Oh, and I just remembered I also drank some lemon juice in water last night, so maybe that helped some too. Hope this helps somebody!
[YEA] After drinking a whole bottle of 100% cranberry juice to cure a bladder infection, I tried the Alka-Seltzer cure I read about on this web-site. It worked almost immediately! Thank you for supplying this useful information.
[YEA] I RECENTLY HAD A UTI THAT WENT FROM URGENCY TO PAIN COMPLETE WITH BLOOD IN URINE IN LESS THEN 30 MINUTES. I IMMEDIATELY LEFT WORK AND WENT TO PURCHASE SOME ALKA SELTZER. TOOK TWO TABLETS DISSOLVED AS INSTRUCTED AND DRANK IT. IT ALMOST INSTANTLY RELIEVED THE PAIN, BURNING, AND PRESSURE I FELT. IT WORKS!!!!!

[YEA] I suffered from Urinary Tract Infection because my boyfriend and I kept passing it to each other. I read of Alka Seltzer to do the trick and Thank God ! I recently had an episode where I thought I had to urine and only a few drops of urine would exit and uh-oh! I started to feel the burn again-Alka Seltzer immediatly flushed it out.
[YEA] Been having a terrible time with the UTI symptoms and same as everybody else doctors try one thing and then another. Finally found a good doctor who took a lab test for kidney, did not show anything major, just a slightly elevated creatinine, not considered anything to worry about. I give all the credit to the doctor for at least focusing on the cause of the problem. I read all about kidneys on my own, came across renal tubular acidosis (does not show a high BUN or creatinine) and the explanation and cure is very simple and it is highly treatable--just raise the pH to 7.5, but for awhile go on an 80%/20% alkaline to acid forming foods diet. After achieving proper balance maintain 60/40 alkalinity. Important thing, potassium citrate very important to work with calcium and to prevent kidney stones which can cause burning like uti. Only about a week and feeling much better. Hope this helps along with the other alkalizing remedies etc. people say are helping them.

[YEA] I've had a reoccuring bladder "infection" for a month. My tests came out negative for an infection and show to be yeast related. I suffer from chronic candidiasis with systemic symptoms. My pain is fine during the day but in my sleep my body goes acidic very quickly and I painfully wake at least 2x per night to pee. The things I find most helpful for pain releif are listed below...
Eat lots of Celery and cucumbers! Very alkaline, and helps releive pain w/in 20minutes. Drink lots of water to flush out your system. Eat all vegetables (be creative, yes asparagus helps too) with no meat proteins and use generous amounts of ACV along with EV olive oil or my choice, capryol (coconut oil). Oil of oregano helps a bit if you can stomach the awful taste. Oh yeah, NO SUGAR, carbs, or Dairy. Get unsweetend cranberry juice concentrate & mix a small amount with a glass of water, not the store brand juice.
Try replacing milk with Almond milk and a tiny bit of Stevia sweetener with some cinnammon...mmm.
Alkaline diets will help with the pain and if your problem is related to yeast, it helps prevent an overgrowth of the fungus. There are plenty of websites with lists of alkaline/acidic foods. Check em out.
Hope this helps!

[NAY] Question - 3 different occasions (2 at my Dr. office and once at home)I took a test with test strips to determined a UTI and they all came back positive. My Dr. has recently had my urine cultured but it came back negative.
HISTORY*** May 12,09 I got a UTI, not diagnosed by a Dr. but by knowing what it feels like. So, I started with an over the counter cranberry med. that has worked for me in the past. After a couple of days the UTI felt better but it was obvious I still had it. I then added pure cranberry juice to the remedy but that did not change a thing. I read on this website to try apple cider vinegar, so I started with the pill form ( I can not drink it) again it felt better but still did not cure the UTI. I then went to my Dr. 7 Jun 09. That is when I was tested for the first time at the Dr. office and the test came back positive. The Dr. put me on a 7 day antibiotics at the end of the 7 days I still had the UTI. Thinking it was all in my mind, 2 days later I took an over-the-counter UTI test and it came back positive. I then made an appt with my Dr. once again, the Dr. took another UTI test and it came back positive and started my on a 10 day antibiotic. In the mean time the Dr. had my urine cultured and to our surprise it came back NEGATIVE. I am still having pain and AT A LOSS!! CAN YOU PLEASE HELP ME?

[YEA] Cured UTI twice with ACV. Once, right before a beach vacation I felt it coming on. Took 1-2 TB for 48 hours in 8 to 16 oz water for about 72 hours every 4 hours including at 3am. It was gone! Felt great.
Started a UTI feeling after antibiotic rounds. Again, cured using 72 hours of 1-2TB ACV with 8 oz water 3 times per day. I also chugged water. I did add 1 TSP of baking soda on day 1 - but it made me throw up! Ugh. Pure ACV works just fine.
PS - Most recently, I also use echinacea tincture. A few droper fulls into the mixture.

[YEA] My girl friend woke me up one night told me she had:
- sharp, unbearable pain in her urether .
- a blocked urether, she couldn't pee although she felt her bladder was full
- blood clots in her urinate for days when she could pass urine .
She got UTI once before, she went through a long painful antibiotic therapy, and because of this experience she was so scared that it's going to get repeated .
She told me she used a pill called phenazopyridine which alleviates the pain in urinary tract and makes the color of urine reddish , we went to pharmacy and bought it just to buy some time to think and find a remedy, I came to this site and as I knew the benefits of ACV and I seriously believe in its magical results, she started :
- taking ACV diluted with water and sipping on it everyonce in awhile as much as she can
- washing her private parts ( specially the urether ) with higher concentrations of ACV than what she used to drink , let it stay in that condition for 10 minutes and wash herself with water .
she couldn't believe it , just after some hours :
- pain subsided
- she could pass urine ( not very fluently , not her whole bladder got emptied , but yet very much better than before )
She continued the process until she completely cured and reached to a fluent urination with a very clear transparent urine without any feeling of pain at all .
Thank you earth clinic and everybody sharing their priceless experiences and hope for a drug free world .
[YEA] I woke up in the night with urgency and within a half hour was urinating blood and unable to get off the toilet. I have had many UTI's before so knew immediately what it was. Got online and saw the apple cider vinegar remedy. I drank 1/4 cup of organic ACV with water and honey. I also filled a pyrex cup with half vinegar, half warm water and then (in the shower) held it cupped around my vagina for about 8-10 minutes (it's a bit awkward but worked). I have to say the relief was almost immediate and I could actually go back to bed and sleep for a bit. I did follow up with my Doctor this morning. I will definitely use this technique at the first inkling of trouble again.
[YEA] Wow, I can't believe how much better I feel! I was getting a bladder infection tonight and went online to seek natural remedies for it after sitting on the toilet for half an hour trying to pee. I found posts about people taking baths with apple cider vinegar as well as taking it internally.
I didn't have much apple cider vinegar left in my bottle to be able to fill the tub with water and ACV, so I improvised and found an oval tupperwear container that was quite shallow. I filled 1/4 of it with Apple Cider Vinegar and the rest with hot but not scalding water. Then I squatted/perched over it, soaking my private parts in the Apple Cider Vinegar water. It eliminated the burning within 2 minutes. I stayed in this humorous position for about 10 minutes. I feel NO BURNING or PAIN or URGENCY TO PEE right now! I also took a tablespoon of Apple Cider Vinegar and 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda in a large glass of water so I think that is going to help as well.
If you need immediate relief from a bladder infection, try this remedy. The immediate relief is truly amazing! By the way, I couldn't help but think as I was squatting in the tub that this is what women must have done in the olden days when there were no pharmacies to go to for relief. It feels like an ancient and comforting remedy, I must say. God Bless.

[YEA] Organic Apple Cider Vinegar: 1 tbs diluted in 1 cup of water; twice a day.
Would get a UTI after sex even after peeing. Many times bleeding occurred. Medications helped, but who wants to rush to urgent care everytime you have sex?! Cranberry juice works, but would give me a yeast infection from all that sugar.
Went to the ER twice thinking something serious was wrong with me but it was just my acid reflux. Hospital bills sucked! I knew I had to do something quick.
I began taking ACV at the first stage of a UTI. My urine began to smell and would go to the bathroom more frequent. I knew it would be blood and pain soon after. I took a chance and began drinking apple cider vinegar 2 cups per day. UTI never came back and it's been months! CAUTION: During treatment, DO NOT drink coffee NOR tea, it will come right back. I didn't know about tea, and it began to come back. I had to take 3 cups that day.
Since taking ACV, my acid reflux have subsided! No bloating, no nausea, no heartburn, no acid build-up in my throat. I feel normal again and don't look pregnant!
Apple Cider Vinegar has been my savior! I continue to take the same dosage everyday as preventative. Try it out!
[YEA] Apple Cider Vinegar for UTI
A little over an hour ago I woke up and had the urge to pee. I could tell from the feeling it was going to be bad. I was right. I immediately put sea salt in a glass of water and gagged it down. It didn't help as much as I remember it helping previously, so I pulled up the Earthclinic site and read many of the ACV remedies. I put equal amounts of ACV and water, about a 1/4 cup each in a glass and drank it over about 15 minutes. I also had a tall glass of water to chase each gulp with. I read more testimonies while I waited for the time to pass. It's been about 45 minutes now and I feel about 85 percent better. If it is not completely better in a couple of hours I plan to try putting it in the bath and soaking. I will continue with ACV for several days, but based on multiple comments I don't think I will take it long term. I want this remedy to work when I need and I am concerned about building up a resistance to it. Thank you all.
[YEA] ACV for UTI: It worked for me! I would not have believed it if I hadn't tried it. A couple tablespoons of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water. I repeated it every 15 minutes to half hour. After three doses, I waited half an hour then drank 1/4 tsp of baking soda with water to settle my stomach. Three and a half hours after starting this treatment, I had absolutely NO pain, no more blood in my urine, no more urgency!
I didn't follow through with the protocol, so a week later it was back. I repeated the ACV and water treatment, once again it took 3-1/2 hours and again, no pain. I continued taking ACV and water three times a day for a few days after.
The following week I had my checkup at the doc's office. I told her what I had done. She got the lab result from my urine sample, said it was normal. I was stunned. I truly thought there would be some bacteria left and I'd still have to be on some antibiotic.
So try it and continue with the ACV for several days. Hopefully you'll have the same good results that I did.

[YEA] I am 45 and have been getting cystitis since I was 16. I have found cranberry to be very useful in keeping the number of occurrences down, but usually when it takes hold I have to resort to antibiotics.
this time I thought I would first check out for natural remedies, and with 81 yeas decided to try acv. I put 4 tablespoons in a glass with warm water and drank it all in one go (through a straw as its not the nicest taste in the world lol), went to bed and in the morning, did a strip test for leukocytes.. it was clear! needless to say, very very impressed :)
