Home Remedy- Bladder Infections

                  Image Hosted by

These are home health remedies that have been emailed to me or that I found on the Internet.  I have not tried them all and do NOT guarantee the effectiveness of them.  If you try one and it works, or if you have one that works for you, please email me.  Thanks!

Bladder Infection

  •  Take a bag of fresh or frozen cranberries and boil them in water (they will fall apart). Cool and drink. Don't add sugar! This remedy is also useful for people with kidney problems.
  • One teaspoon of olive oil and one teaspoon of garlic juice mixed in a glass of warm water. Drink three times a day, before meals.
    A teaspoon of pure garlic juice is effective in killing off the bacteria responsible for many bladder infections. This treatment can be repeated as often as needed.
  • Avoid alcohol, caffeinated and carbonated drinks, and spicy foods. They can worsen symptoms.  Avoid sexual intercourse while you are having symptoms.  Refrain from taking bubble baths or using bath oils while having symptoms.  They can cause increased irritation.

Have a great day!
