Getting rid of a UTI is a common dilemma since many women have experienced at least one in their lifetime. A UTI is a urinary tract infection, and it is the second most common infection in the human body. Most doctors prescribe antibiotics to treat urinary tract infections. However, this infection could face more natural treatments. And this is where I come in, with my proved solutions that will work guaranteed.
1. Parsley Water
Aside from the fact that it makes a wonderfully refreshing after dinner drink, parsley water can help relieve a urinary tract infection and speed up the healing process by acting as a diuretic. Thus, we just want to encourage an increased amount of urine to keep flushing out bacteria and relieving discomfort.
Bring water to a boil and add the parsley if you are using fresh-which is preferable in my opinion. Reduce the heat so it simmers steadily and let the leaves infuse the water like this for 6-10 minutes. Strain the leaves out and drink the water hot. If it’s a hot summer day, pop it in the fridge for refreshing parsley iced tea.
2. Celery Seeds
Celery seeds also act as a diuretic, due mainly to one of the constituents of celery oil, butylphthalide. If parsley water just isn’t your thing, chewing a handful of celery seeds can help increase the production of urine. If you want to get some more fluid, make celery seed water.
Once or twice a day, snack on celery seeds right after a meal-it can also help with digestion, so why not? If you do this daily, it can help you get rid of UTI.
3. Ginger Tea
Ginger is also perfect due to its chemical properties. These could help to prevent inflammation, reduce current inflammation, and reduce pain. So prepare a tea with ginger and enjoy its bittersweet taste.
Grate the fresh horseradish, and start by taking 1 teaspoon twice a day. The max dosage is 1 ½ teaspoons three times daily, stopping if stomach upset occurs. If you have a hard time with the spice, a glass of water or milk nearby can help. I find milk to be preferable as water can sometimes seem to spread the spice around!
5. Tartar and lemon
Stir cream of tartar into 1 cup of warm water. Add a dash of lemon or lime juice, and drink 1-2 times a day. This can also help with UTI if it is taken daily.
