UTIs are like cold McDonalds. There are lots of herbs for UTI which you can use for a soothing effect and cure your UTI in no time. Here are some great tips on what you can do when they strike.
Natural Treatment for Urinary Tract Infection
A urinary tract infection generally occurs when the bacteria makes its way up the urethra. There are multiple causes for getting a UTI like having multiple sexual partners, aggravated Pitta, eating heating foods and holding urine in for too long. This condition is more common in females as compared to men. Here are some steps you can take as a natural UTI cure.
Make sure you use the loo when you need to. Don’t keep holding it in. If you are already suffering from a UTI, it’ll burn but it will help you in the long run.
Drink plenty of fluids and liquids, especially water. Water is one of the best cures for UTIs as it helps you flush out all the toxins.
Keep clean. Stay dry at all times. Make sure you wipe well especially after you use the loo. Steer clear from sweat and try to wear loose clothing when suffering from a UTI to allow air to pass through and keep your urethra dry.
Try to avoid foods like chocolate, citrus fruits, carbonated drinks and caffeine if you feel like you are getting affected by UTIs very often.
