Bladder Infection Remedies And Cures

Most women suffered bladder infections from time to time in their life time. And if that is not the case for you, you’re exceptionally lucky! Of course blaader infections are not life treatening, but at the same time, you have to do something about it before it gets out of hand. Anyone who has suffered a bladder infection can tell you they’re no fun! Bladder infections are caused by bacteria which enter the bladder and multiply, setting off a series of symptoms, including burning pain when urinating, frequent urination and bladder spasms. Worse yet, some people are vulnerable to recurring bladder infections. Although antibiotics will take care of your problem, it’s not a good idea to take antibiotics more than necessary. There are several natural bladder infection remedies that work. Some foods and supplements also serve as preventative measures. If you suffer from bladder infections, give some of these natural bladder infection remedies a try.

Whatever bladder infection remedies you choose, you’ll benefit from regular Vitamin C supplements. Get natural vitamin C rather than ascorbic acid – the natural form won’t upset your stomach. Take 1000 mg. three or four times a day. Vitamin C cleanses the bladder. Many people with recurring bladder infections report good results of Vitamin C as a preventative.

Cranberries and cranberry juice should be high on your list, both as  preventatives and as bladder infection remedies. Cranberries are high in vitamin C, acid and have an antibiotic action on bacteria in the bladder. If you don’t like the taste, concentrated cranberry tablets may be purchased at your herb store. Lemon juice, blueberries and rhubarb are also foods you’ll want to consume, both during and after an infection.

One of the most famous anecdotal bladder infection remedies is apple cider vinegar mixed with honey. No one knows how it works, but it does, possibly by restoring a correct balance of your Ph. Warm a teaspoon on honey in a glass of water. Stir in two teaspoons of the vinegar. Now, bottoms up!

Your doctor may prescribe a sulfur medicine. The natural equivalent bladder infection remedy consists of foods which are high in sulfur, such as spinach, asparagus, cashews or almonds. All of these foods serve as preventative measures as well.

Another of the folklore bladder infection remedies reporting especially good results is the asparagus treatment. Many people who suffer frequent bladder infections have found relief, and in some cases, a permanent solution, with consumption of asparagus! These people claim that including asparagus in their regular diet has resulted in a virtual suspension of their attacks. Asparagus should be noted as one of the best treatments. If you feel a bladder infection coming on, immediately start with the asparagus, with the equivalent of one can, or 12 ounces of fresh asparagus per day.

Another food that can help, both during an infection and as a preventative, is natural live yogurt. “Live” yogurt contains the beneficial bacteria, Lactobacillus Acidophilus, whereas the pasteurized version does not. Have a cup of this yogurt at least daily and more often during an ongoing infection. If you can’t stand yogurt, tablets are available at your health food store.

Bladder infection remedies need not include antibiotics. Try some of these natural bladder infection remedies. You may well find this woe to be in your past.
