Just thought I would let everyone in on my long history of UTI's. I have had them since I was 10 months old and I am now 23. There is these herbal vitamins that I picked up from the china town herbal store and I SWEAR by them!!! U take 5 .. 3 times a day with hot water and it goes away instantly. I would write the name of them but Its in chinese. I will look it up and get back to you all.. also I read some peoples stories about getting yeast infections, and I have never had one in my entire life so you might want to switch your medication. I also asked my doctor for 3X the amount of medications so that I can start taking them right away when my UTI is really intense. We all know how they feel OUCH! Also try taking warm baths!

Cinnamon as a curative for UTI (urinary tract infections). Use/mix with toast or small yogurt. Stumbled on this when researching the topic of UTI's. So my wife gave it a try and... Bingo. Situation solved. Now a regular part of her diet. Also, when our female dog was passing blood the vet. wanted to schedule an operation he thought things were so bad. Took her home and just thought before we brought her back we would give her some yogurt with cinnamon. Next day urine looked perfect and brought the vet a sample. He was in disbelief as she tested normal. We've told many people about this as it is easy, cheap and really works. So for people and pets try it. Just a teaspoon seems to do it. We give it daily to our pets for years and never a problem since. Hope this post helps someone.

Wondering. Have any of you ladies tried magnesium citrate or calcium citrate to help treat this? How did it work for you? How much did you take? I just read that one theory is that oxalate in your diet builds up and when excreted in urine it may cause pain/irritation/discomfort over time and that these supplements inhibit the growth of oxalate crystals. Any thoughts? Anyone tried? I've put myself on so much stuff it's getting expensive any advice would be good. Thanks!!!!

I just took 2 drops of clove oil in a glass of water for a bladder infection and I feel 50% better in just a couple of hours. Was in terrible pain. I also took some cranberry extract pills with it. But I think it was the clove oil that worked because the cranberry didn't work prior to adding the clove oil. I also inserted a fem-dophilus pill into the vaginal area because a scientist I worked with said that if I want something to get into the bloodstream fast put it on the vaginal lip area. This didn't take away my infection until I added the clove oil. I have found that clove oil is the best thing for bacteria infections, I have injected it into my gums for a gum infection I could not get rid of for years after 2 unsuccessful surgeries. It works better then any other natural antibiotic I have tried.

Club Soda cure, I have been using ordinary club soda for many years now for urinary infection, burning sensation on urination and also constipation. I am a homeopath and I suggest this remedy to my clients it work magic each time.
On reading the ingredients in club soda I notice that the main ingredient is sodium bicarbonate,sodium citrate, potassium sulphate( potassium sulphate is known as Kali sulp) a homeopathic tissue salt for urinary infection detox and diabetes,other ingredients
they also add carbonated water for the fizz. Try two eight ounce glass daily, you may add lemon for addition flavour.
Please let me know if other individuals have this experience.

What a wonderful website! Thank you, thank you, thank you, Earth clinic.
I have suffered from severe uti's for years. Unfortunately, I'm one of the people who is asymptomatic until the infection is quite severe. It begins with urgency and discomfort while urinating and progresses within a couple of hours to bright red urine and extreme pain. This has caused several emergency room visits over the years and a lot of antibiotics. I have tried cranberry juice, the supplements and cranberry extract, however, none of these worked for me.
Last night when I, once again, woke up with symptoms, I was already calculating if I could hold out the six hours until my doctor's office opened in the morning. Because I was unable to sleep at all(visiting the bathroom every 10 mins), I began to peruse the web and came across this site where I read about others who had cured severe uti's with coconut oil and coconut milk. Desperate to avoid another emergency room visit, I went to the 24-hour supermarket. They didn't have coconut oil, but they did have coconut milk. I bought the full fat one thinking there would be more oil in that. At home I added ice and chugged one can down around 2am. Within an hour I began to feel the symptoms letting up. I fell asleep and when I woke up at 8am the symptoms were all but gone. I drank another can today and lots of fluids, but I am feeling fine: no fever, no pain, no urgency, nothing! I will probably continue to drink the coconut milk for a couple more days to make sure it doesn't come back.
I am truly amazed. It feels like a miracle.

I had a severe urine infection.I was going to he bathroom every 10 mins But found the cures within hours of drinking coconut milk. It is available from fresh coconuts but also in cans and cartons. A friend of mine's infection spread to the kidneys and had to be referred to hospital as the antibiotics were not helping and she was in severe pain. I recommended her this treatment within 3 days she was cured. She drank a glass of the coconut milk 5/6 times a day. Her tests showed the infection was completely gone and the kidneys were clear and healthy !

Coconut oil cured by urinary tract infection. I took only one tablespoon a day.
I used "___ Coconut Oil" from Whole Foods.
I had a urinary tract infection with moderate to severe symptoms for approximately one week, and then mild to moderate symptoms for two weeks thereafter. I wanted to avoid antibiotic medication at all costs, seeing as the effects of those antibiotics can be as problematic as the problem itself. (Don't get me wrong -- I understand that sometimes you HAVE to take these things. But in this case, I wanted to find a way around it).
I spent the first few days chugging cranberry juice and drinking water. This was pointless and did absolutely nothing. I even used unsweetened, pure cranberry juice which was terrible to drink. It probably works for some people, but not for me.
Then I tried some random supplement especially formulated for curing UTI's from Whole Foods with cranberry extract and d-mannose. This worked better, but still not enough.
Next, after reading the reviews on this website, I tried apple cider vinegar. This helped, and reduced my symptoms of the UTI by about 40%. However, if I forgot the ACV for a day or two, the UTI would come back.
The only thing that worked 100% was coconut oil. I took a single tablespoon each day. It helped tremendously and cured my UTI. I don't know if coconut oil will work for everybody, but for some reason, it worked incredibly well for me. Since I only took one tablespoon in the morning, I imagine it would work very well if they took two tablespoon, one in the morning and one at night.
So before you try using antibiotics (which can be ineffective, especially if the bacteria develop a resistance to the antibiotics) *TRY* coconut oil. Just go to Whole Foods and buy cold-pressed coconut oil.

Although I had begun using VCO for other reasons, I realized after only two months that a chronic, "incurable" bladder condition that I had had for twenty-one years was much better. Then it seemed to just disappear. It has been over a year since any symptoms, and I don't expect any. My urologist was astonished.

Coconut oil 1 teaspoon plus 1 teaspoon raw honey and two drops oil of oregano. Mix it very well and next time your child will go to bathroom, it will be without screaming. It workes every time when my child has urinary track infection or cries when going to bathroom.

Hello, am looking for some advice please.
My 80 year old father has just been diagnosed with a urine infection and a slight chest infection. He has been prescribed antibiotics.
I was wondering if it would be okay to give him some Colloidal Silver to take alongwith the antibiotics. If so, how much and how often.

I tried everything for bladder disease. The regular doctor prescribed Nitrofurantoin... so bad.. it causes even bladder disease... so I became very very ill ONLY COLLOIDAL SILVERWATER was THE REMEDY( for E-coli). Bladder disease was gone. Afterwords I took DMannose...very good..no pain anymore...also good for interstitial cystitis...really true. I have to tell this for the doctor did not know that Nitrofurantoin causes bladder disease. read: Natural Medicine Encyclopedia C.Norman Shealy.

Corn Silk Tea: Since I did not see this as a remedy, I thought I would post. A friend recently had some bladder pain and she went through 2 rounds of antibiotics with no success. She tried other holistic remedies, but in the end her mother boiled the silk from the outside of corn into a tea and that did it for her. I don't have a recipe, but if you search on "corn husk tea medicinal" you will find it.

Having suffered from cystitis many times over the years, I always have handy some Cornsilk, and it has always worked for me. It is natural and cheap from a good Health shop. It is alkaline. You place a small quantity in a jug and pour on boiling water and leave it to cool. Best to leave it overnight, but if desperate, you can drink some after about 20 minutes. I also drink plenty of water afterwards.
I once had cystitis for 9 months when I had tried just about everything, but this was my first real relief. You can buy it from a good health shop and it is cheap. It is the dried ears around corn. God has given us everything we need in His creation.

I tried to do the vinegar douche but I got worst I started getting pain in the vagina, thank God for corn silk and shave grass tea I felt better 3 hours later. They usually sell this in the mexican stores: One bag of corn silk and boil it in 4 cups of water, and for the shave grass tea they sale those in tea bags so you put that in a cup of hot water and drink it drink as many as many cups as you can, keep drinking it for 5 days or longer, even if you feel better. Both teas work but if you only find the corn silk it will work fine.
