Recently had bladder infection, solved with baking soda and ACV. Nobody ever discusses Vit C problem. If I take Vit C or even a health bar with citric acid, I develop kidney or bladder problem. Would love to cleanse with your 1/4 tsp lemon, soda and pinch of Magnesium and potassium.
Like so many of you said " I'm sooo grateful to have come across this site". I drank down 1 1/2 Tbsp. of ACV in 6 oz of luke warm water followed by 1 tsp.of sea salt in 6 oz. of lukewarm water for my bladder infection. That was roughly 1 hr. ago. I not only feel "MUCH" beter, I feel happy. Love natural remedies especially when they work this fast!
Apple Cider Vinegar and Sea Salt
Ive had chronic UTI's for a long time especially due to having insulin resistance. When I eat sugar it seems to feed the bacteria and yeast. I have taken the ACV and sea salt for the first time tonite. 1 hour later the burning has calmed down, I have tried Dmanoose it helps but does not give me entire relief. Im antibiotic resistant so hopefully this will knock the bacteria out
Having had UTI's periodically, all of my adult life since having children, I was quick to dose myself some ACV and cranberry juice as soon as I felt the symptoms last week. This method usually clears my symptoms up within 24 hours but this last bout was more tenacious, so I came online to look for a more invasive natural approach. My main symptom was continued pain on urination so I scooped up a portion of organic coconut oil, knowing it's antibacterial, antifungal, antimicrobial properties. Utilizing it as a suppository, the symptoms were immediately alleviated and together with my ACV, cranberry with a pinch of baking soda cocktail regimen, I was right as rain within 24 hours. The real task is trying to remember to include ACV in my diet several times a week to prevent the onset of another infection.
I just wanted to say thank you. I am not sure if I still have an infection, but I am going to continue this regimen for awhile.
I have been having bladder infections back to back. I've taking anitibiotics for them all and I am just tired of taking drugs and wanted to do something natural.
This REMEDY REALLY WORKED FOR ME. I was so bad that blood and small clots of it was coming though my urine. Yes it was very painful but I just did not want to take any more anitbiotics. It took a couple of hours but following up with the craneberry juice and lots and lots and lots of water, the blood went away, the pain, and finally by late evening even the dicomfort. As I said I am continuing the ACV and Craneberry Juice and Tons of water for a while. Thank you again.
Apple Cider Vinegar, Cranberry
after using a notoriously harmful birth control for the first time in 4 years (my husband warned me, i didnt listen) i developed my first uti in 5 years! i was so upset and remorseful that i didnt listen to him. after 4 days of using this birth control i had a full blown uti. i was urinating blood clots and all. obviously i stopped using the birth control immediately. refusing to go back to the doctors (SINCE THEYRE THE ONES WHO CAUSED THIS!!!) i started drinking 3 cups of an acv water mixture and 3 cups of a cranberry water mixture a day. after 2 days i am happy to say my urine is clear and i am urinating without being in pain! yayyy! acv is the besttt!
Apple Cider Vinegar, Cranberry
For years whenever I feel like I"m getting a urinary tract infection I take 2 T spoons of apple cider vinegar twice a day. I also drink nothing but water and cranberry juice. I have not been to the doctor or wasted money on prescriptions since I was in high school (I am now 29). It really works!
I've been plagued with the discomfort of recurrent bladder infections since I was a pre-teen. I usually get one about every 3 months and they sometimes last for weeks, it's so painful! I've taken cranberry extract before as a preventative, but it doesn't always do the trick at the onset of a bladder infection.
I had a nasty infection sometime last week (most likely caused by a pair of too-tight short shorts that I sometimes sleep in) and decided to try a combination of things to get rid of it faster. I took two cranberry pills (which was about 226mg), 2 vitamin C tablets (1000mg) and washed it all down with 2 tbs. of apple cider vinegar diluted in 2 cups of water. To my amazement, 20 minutes later the discomfort had vanished completely. No more bladder infection! I'm not sure if it was a specific remedy or the combination of all 3 that cured it so fast, but I've decided that I will be taking a tbs. of ACV in my water on a daily basis, continuing to take cranberry extract pills (at 452mg) and increasing my daily vitamin C intake. As long as I stay away clothes that are too tight, I'm hoping it will prevent me from ever getting another one!
I'm new to this site but SO glad I found it! I have been suffering from a recurring UTI for the past 3 months and I was getting fed up with all of the harsh antibiotics I'd been prescribed (Cipro, Bactrim). I am also without health insurance at this time, so I began to search on the internet for effective NATURAL remedies to get rid of this awful infection once and for all and that's when I read about apple cidar vinegar and D-Mannose. I bought a small jar of ____ Apple Cidar Vinegar (with the mother) from my local whole foods and not being totally convinced it would work, sprung for the D-Mannose tablets too. I've found that the apple cidar vinegar was pretty strong, but I still put two tsp in a glass of water (or tea or cranberry juice) three times a day for three days. The frequency of urination was beginning to subside, but because I was taking both ACV and D-Mannose, I couldn't determine which one was working. Since the ACV was giving my stomach a hard time, I decided to stop taking it for a day or two, but kept up the D-Mannose. To my astonishment (and relief), the D-Mannose seems to have done the trick! No more frequent, painful urination! Today is Day 6 of treating my UTI on my own (Day 3 of taking ONLY D-Mannose) and so far, so good! I feel like a normal human being again! I've read that D-Mannose is only effective in powder form, but I have to disagree, at least in my case. I take two capsules first thing in the morning with a full glass of water and one capsule at night before bed and presto! No moe UTI! (Although I do want to point out that since drinking the ACV, my skin has never looked better!) I just wanted to share my experience, as so many of you have shared yours, and hope that sharing my experience might help someone, as I have been helped by this site! Good luck in searching for natural remedies and remember - don't give up! There ARE other ways to treat infection and disease besides what your doctor pushes on you. Find answers and find good health!
Apple Cider Vinegar, D-Mannose
I read on your site to try apple cider vinegar and also another cure called D-Mannose. Wanting to nip this in the bud I tried them both simultaneously. Worked wonders. You can get D-Mannose from any health food store as well as unfiltered apple cider vinegar. I put 3 Tbl. of the vinegar in 24 oz of water, added 1 tsp. of D-Mannose and so I wouldn't gag I used some liquid stevia to soften the vinegar blow. It actually tasted good and did the trick. I drank about 3 glasses of that throughout the day and that was all it took.
Earlier this week I felt the symptons of a bladder infection coming on. Since I have no insurance, I wanted to try the natural route. I bought some cranberry tablets that did absolutely nothing, in fact it seemed to make the burning/tingling sensation more intense. After doing some reading on this website and nother website, I decided to go to GNC to get some organic apple cider vinegar. While there, I purchased the regular _____'s ACV in addition to a ACV beverage by _____'s containing cinnamon (I heard both ACV and cinnamon were good for bladder infections and for lowering the ph of urine, which helps to kill of bacteria associated with this infection).
I immediately drank the beverage, then went to Walmart to get some ginger root tablets for $4 (ginger is also good for keeping urine alkaline and fighting off certain bacteria like e. Coli that is often responsible for uti's). I took three that day, and felt immediate relief the next time I used the restroom. When I went to use the restroom at the very end of the day before bed, there was no longer a burning/tingling sensation and my urine was no longer foul smelling or cloudy.
The next day I took a tablespoon of undiluted ACV with lots of water to wash it down. I also took 3 more ginger root tablets throughout the course of the day and again no symptons. When I woke up today, the symptons still appear to be gone. Over the next couple of days, I think I will continue to take 1 tablespoon of ACV and maybe try oregano oil or garlic tablets, just to make sure the infection stays gone.
I battled UTI's for years on a monthly basis and had doctors give me 3-5 day doses of antibiotics which only made me resistant. I could not get the doctors to understand what they were doing! So, I searched out natural remedy's that I now swear by. This is my daily routine & when I have an infection (which has been 2x' in the last 3 years!)
ACV pill 2x's a day
UVA URSA pills 2x's a day (there are some pills that are for balancing the urinary tract system that have this herb in it)
Vitamin C 1x's a day
Water, water, water
Keep it clean down there, especially after sex
During a UTI:
Double or triple dosage of ACV
Double UVA URSA dosage
Sit in a shallow tub with warm water and 1-2 cups of ACV. Soak for about 5 minutes.
Cut out all sugar
I have shared this with friends who now swear off doctors for UTIs.
I used to suffer from horrible uti, and at the time my husband and I didn't have health insurance, (newlyweds). I would go out and buy a can of asparagus, and eat/drink everything in the can. By the time my pee started smelling like asparagus the pain was gone! But I don't know if i accually cured it or if the infection was a recuring one, since I never went to the doctors to get tested. But to aliviate the pain (at least) it worked great!
(Laguna Hills, Ca)
I am currently trying to heal a bladder infection sans antibiotics. I have Hep C & try to avoid them as much as possible in an attempt to treat my system & liver as best I can. My bladder infections have always been a result of not drinking enough water daily, combined with alcohol (usually a celebration) & a 'frisky' husband. ... Enough with the celebrations already! Yes, I know alcohol is the worst for Hep C, but I allow myself to sin a couple times a year if for no other reason than to remind myself that I DO NOT need to. I've been on an over the counter paid med for a few days while drinking tons of distilled water. I only drink DISTILLED water for my Hep C & it helps. The OTC pain meds help, but the infection is still lingering. I just came upon this site & will be trying the alkaseltzer & ACV today. I'll write an update within 24 hours FYI.
Wish me luck kids!
Dear Earth Clinic,
I was having a very difficult time with UTI's off and on, including using various over the counter medications and UTI aids. I was about to go to my Doctor for help. Instead I decided to eliminate my love for COFFEE and see if my love for coffee was the culprit! And sure enough my UTI's stopped bothering me when I eliminated Coffee for good!
The first few days of no longer using coffee (and I drank loads of it starting at the AM) and my UTI problem halted! I still am no longer drinking coffee and I am doing FINE! I just wanted to share this with other sufferers! I still use the AZO cranberry capsules twice a day for good measure! Thank you DianeC.
