Alka Zeltzer did not work for my UTI. I did it for a couple of days, didn't work at all.

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!

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.

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!!!!!

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.

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.

I read that magnesium citrate also alkaliinizes the body. I found that it heals muscle atrophy. Ted also said in here somewhere that it is the one form of magnesium that goes directly into the muscle tissue. My muscles have responded nicely and also removing the lines in my brow and forehead. I have found I need less progesterone cream, since the mag is bringing my body into balance. No more vaginal atrophy. I also had the prolapsed bladder and recently found that coating the vaginal cavity inside with wicth hazel when ever I notice the bladder down.... Re apply the witch hazel with my finger. HOPE THIS HELPS FOR MUSCLE, VAGINAL ATROPHY AND PROLAPSED BLADDER (CYSTOCELE).

If you can't pee drink cranberry juice to get the flow going.

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!

I'm at a loss. is alkalization of urine good against UTI as this post from 2008 says, or bad as e.g. they say in this article:

https://www.womenshealthspecialists.org/health-information/bladder-infections/

They say that bacteria grow better when the urine is less acidic.

ALEXSANDRA,

In my experience it varies depending on the bacteria that is causing the UTI. I have a friend who gets UTI's regularly and baking soda (BS) worked fine for years to stop her UTI's quickly for years, but then she got a UTI that was unfazed by BS and had to use a different remedy to stop that UTI. Her doctor told her that if BS works, to keep on using it as long as it does, but he also said that it shouldn't work and he was confused as to why it was working.

Hello, I had a very uncomfortable Urinary Tract infection a week ago and I bought the product one finds at the pharmacy (AZO tabs.) which usually works for me. I took the full dosage and this time the AZO pills didn't work?

I had to go to the doctor and I was given one pill for Fungal infection until they could test my urine to find the real culprit and as usual I could not get results until Monday as everyone is closed for the weekend. The Fungal pill seemed to work, but the next day the Infection and pain was back again! So I read that some women are helped with UTI by drinking alkaline water so my husband and I drove into town and bought 2 gallons of alkaline water to see if it would work AND IT SURE DID! Alkaline water (I drank quit a bit) relieved me of all the pain! The pain came back after one day and a half for about half an hour and then it went away again after I drank more Alkaline water! What was weird was that even though the pain was gone I had some slight discomfort in my lower tract and lower back area. I continued drinking the Alkaline water. Then about three times when I went to urinate my flow of urine was hot? I never experienced hot pee? After the hot pee episode every symptom of the UTI problem was gone! Including the pain in the lower back and lower stomach area! I feel back to normal and will not have to go back to the doctor if this continues. Also for seniors a retired nurse told me that UTI can be dangerous for Seniors and is the second cause of death for seniors. The infection can go to the kidneys and cause Septic! Very dangerous!

So take this infection seriously! Especially if you are a Senior!

I just wanted to add in regard to BV, I had it a couple of years ago and it was recurrent no matter what my Dr. gave me. Finally, I ask a friend of mines who is well versed with natural cures what I should do and she simply said, "2tbsp of natural aloe vera to 8oz of unsweetened cranberry juice. Not only does it get rid of the BV, I have also found that it works well with balder infections. Pray this helps someone as it did me.

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?

Apple Cider Vinegar and Baking Soda

Oh my goodness, this WORKS. Woke up pre dawn with a nasty UTI. Constant urgent need to pee. Very painful and uncomfortable urination with blood in my urine. By the morning I was thinking cancel yoga and ‘there goes Christmas' as no drs open, no script for antibiotics. Went to Earth clinic, found this.

I mixed 2-3 tablespoons ACV + 1/2 teaspoon Bicarbonate in a large glass of water. Tastes fine, down the hatch in one go.

20 minutes later, symptoms COMPLETLEY GONE. Miraculous. Went to yoga, no problems. Looking forward to Christmas 🤶

I get this quite regularly, so glad to have this cure as I prefer to avoid antibiotics. Thank you again EC. 💕

Since you have UTI regularly, always keep D-Mannose and Urolesan in your medicine cabinet.

Urolesan sold on Amazon (overpriced of course because it's sold by private companies)is the #1 European medicine for UTI. It's the first thing doctors in Eastern Europe recommend for UTI. Manufactured by pharmaceutical companies. Every woman knows about Urolesan. Works fast.

Active ingredients: 1ml of product contains 67.6 mg of fir oil, 16.9 mg of peppermint oil, 92.95 mg of castor oil, 194.35 mg of wild carrot liquid extract (1:1), 278.8 mg of hop cones liquid extract (1:1), and 192.95 mg of wild marjoram (Origanum majorana) liquid extract.

I just want to Thankyou people for putting your remedies on here. I'm a paraplegic that's struggled with recurring UTIs for over 5 years. Antibiotics over and over. As soon as I finished a course maybe two Days another would develop.

I can tell you it's not nice having constant temperature flushing, fatigue and generally feeling horrible. Every task feels like a mountain climb.
Unable to function and really affects social life. I've missed many family gatherings or just catching up with friends.
I found this page looking for something that may help relieve my problems.
I have since been following one of the lady's remedies of ACV and bicarb soda.

I have a shot in the morning, lunch and before bed.
I have gone two weeks so far without a UTI which I haven't done for 5 years !!
Thank-you everybody, fingers crossed and I hope this helps many in similar situation to me as it's a real problem with Spinal cord injuries.

Sean.

Last week I went to the Doctor as I was sure I had a UTI. Every time I went to the toilet, I couldn't pass much urine and it would be all over body pain and tingling. He gave me a form to have a Urine Test done but didn't get to go as open hours were conflicting. So each day, I would get half a glass of water and pour in some ACV and Lemon Juice, then add some BiCarb Soda. By the 3rd day I was urinating normally and no pain or tingling.

When I was together with my daughter's father I would get frequent urinary tract infections, especially after sex. I read here about the apple cider vinegar and baking soda remedy. So I tried it and it worked every time I needed it! I mixed 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar (though I found just regular white vinegar to work, as well) and just 1/4 tsp baking soda in a tall glass of water and would drink it as I felt comfortable, sometimes just sipping throughout the day or other times drinking a lot at once if I was thirsty. It's actually not an unpleasant drink in those proportions! It would always get rid of the urgency to pee within like, 30 minutes. Thank you so much!

Apple cider vinegar/baking soda saves the day.

This did the trick!! I'm so amazed.

I woke up to burning and only able to produce a few drops--but the urgency was high. Sigh. Tried the apple cider vinegar and baking soda, plus about 30 minutes...no more burning and open the flood gates I'm making water again!! Took some again later and will continue for a few days. I added in some cranberry juice in my daily diet just in case, and have increased my water intake as well for a proper flushing of my pipes. So far so good.-- Thanks Earth Clinic... you continue to be my first " go to" for advice.

I could not go to sleep because of burning feeling and urge to pee. At 2 in the morning I took 1/4 tsp baking soda and 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water. Felt some relief within 10 minutes. Went to sleep and it was gone when I woke up. I have been fine since that was 3 days ago. Amazing
