How To Cure A UTI Effectively

How to Cure a UTII am sure you have been looking for ways how to cure a UTI, especially if you have been suffering from it for days. In fact, there are many ways how to cure a urinary tract infection without necessarily going to the doctor, especially if the symptoms happen at a most unfortunate time.

UTI, or Urinary Tract Infection, is medically termed as the invasion of bacteria into the urinary tract system. The bacteria enters the urinary tract from the opening of your urethra, and then go further into your urinary tract. There are generally many causes of UTI. The most common ones would be the bacteria from sexual intercourse, having multiple sexual partners and when holding in urine for too long.

If not treated in time, UTI can actually be painful and may cause you serious problems. It can spread to your kidneys, which can consequently result in serious health problems. Because of the many disadvantages caused by UTI, it is no wonder that people have found ways to cure UTI even when no doctors are around.

There are many kinds of natural and home remedies for how to cure UTI. But aside from that, successfully treating UTI should not end there, and further prevention should also be the key. You need to consider a change of lifestyle. This is especially important if you’ve experienced UTI more than once in your life – you are obviously doing something wrong.

Flushing out the bacteria from your body naturally is actually a lot simpler than people think. Doing something as simple as drinking 8 full glasses of water a day will actually help in successfully flushing out the bacteria that is causing the UTI.

But this isn’t enough. You also need to ingest a lot of vitamin C, so eating fruits and drinking natural juices that are high in vitamin C is essential on how to cure a UTI. All these remedies also work well as a cystitis treatment.

UTI is not such a serious sickness, but it should not be taken lightly either, and should not be ignored. Doing so can mean bad things for important organs in your body that directly interact with your urinary tract, such as the kidneys.

Fight against your urinary tract infection now before it gets worse. Not sure where to start? Why not try the methods outlined in the UTI report? This is one of my favorite ways to get rid of those nagging infections, and best of all, it’s 100% natural.

    I got a UTI about 2 weeks ago with the symptoms of having the feeling the urge to urinate, pain while urinating, faint blood, ordor to the urine, and cloudy urine. I started drinking lots of water and some of the symptons went away and then I thought it was gone after that and now about 6 days ago I have been having the symptoms of feeling the urge to urinate, oder to urine aand cloudiness to it. I am only 13 and don’t know what I should do? Is it dangerous having it this long? Help please! 🙂

      Hi Andrea,

      You did the right thing by trying to flush out the bacteria with water. But it sounds like you didn’t follow the regimen long enough to flush out ALL the germs. Since drinking water helped you before, try sticking to it for a while longer this time. If it does not go away after a few days, then you need to start with stronger treatments, before you get a bladder/kidney infection.

    hey, a couple of weeks ago i started getting massive burning sensations after i wee and needing to go ALL the time, as well as other symptoms. I don’t want to go to a doctor because i’m worried my parents might find out and get concerned so does anyone have any home remedies that will get rid of it as quickly as possible? p.s. i’m allergic to cranberries which is bad since i heard their effective for getting rid of it :/ thanks

      Hi Mike,

      While a healthy diet is a good start to get your UTI treated and for future prevention, you also need to try other remedies that specifically target the bacteria causing the infection.

      Hi Rochelle,

      Definitely not! Vicks is used to help soothe and open your chest for better breathing, not for pain relief or for disinfection. It would burn like crazy if you did!

      If you are certain it is a UTI, then try some of the remedies outlined on this site, or to save time, have a look at Mary Jo’s UTI Report.

      Hi Nicole,

      When a UTI becomes a serious threat to your health, generally you’ll find your urine becomes very cloudy, sometimes even tainted with blood. And if it has spread to your bladder, then you’ll feel excruciating pain around your lower abdomen.

      On this site I have provided a lot of natural remedies you can try to get rid of your UTI before opting for medications. You can start by looking at these UTI home remedies.

      Alternatively, I’d suggest trying the remedies outlined in the UTI Report. You can read my review of it here.

      That should get you on the right path to cure your UTI, if you have one of course 🙂

      Hi Anon,

      No problem. You need to drink at least 8 glasses over the course of the day. And definitely not all at once 🙂

    Hi Sharon. 🙂
    I had UTI just 2 days ago. So I drank lots of water. The frequent urination, pain and the bleeding stopped.
    After a day, the pain and the blood came back so i drank lots of water again. and it went away for another day.
    But this afternoon, it came again and for no reason, it is still painful but I am drinking lots of water already and my side hurts so much. 🙁
    what should I do?

    Hi,
    I think I might have a UTI but I haven’t been to the doctor. I urinate frequently, both sides of my lower back hurt badly at random times, there r times where I do feel like a cramping pain in my lower abdomen, however my urine isn’t really cloudy, nd it doesn’t hurt when I urinate I just feel a weird pressure right at the end. I just wonder if this can be a UTI or something else?

      Hi Nets,

      I think it’s best to check with your doctor first. Then if you find out it’s a UTI, and you want to cure it naturally, you can always come back to the site later for some tips and advice.

    If you catch a UTI early and follow all the necessary things to cure it, how long should it take for it to be treated?

      Hi Nikki,

      It depends on the severity of your UTI, your current health and how well your body responds to natural remedies. Some people have found relief in a couple of hours, some after 24 hours and others a few days. Everyone’s healing process is different.

    I feel that my 2 and a half year old may have a UTI, since she has been crying a little when she pees. I read your advice on veggies, vitamin C , and water but it is very difficult to try and get her to eat/drink any of those items. Is there any else that can be done besides going to her doctor? I bought some cranberry juice but I am not sure if that is better for prevention rather than treatment. I could use some advice.

      I think the best thing you could do is speak to your doctor about it first, just to make sure that she does in fact have a UTI.

      Hi Paige,

      It sounds like you have UTI. For natural remedies, I would start with drinking water on a regular basis, and also try pure cranberry juice (not diluted with other fruits, and no added sugar). It is better to drink these regularly, than all at once. So aim for about 8 glasses a day. Depending on the severity of your urinary tract infection, you could find relief withing the first day or sometimes longer. If your symptoms persist, then you may need to speak to a pharmacist or you doctor for stronger treatments.

      Also try avoid acidic foods (like sugary sweets, chips, fast-foods, cookies, etc) and get some vegetables in your diet.

      All the best,
      Sharon

    Okay, so I woke up this morning and went to the restroom. Felt pain during urination and was like “wow this hurts…. hope its not a uti ” so then I went to work, and as the day progressed I started feeling terrible burning sensations in my blatter and I knew instantly it was a UTI…. so I scheduled a Dr appointment right away and of course it was positive. However, this is my question.

    Could I have very well had this UTI for a while and not have noticed because I wasn’t having symptoms? Or can a UTI just happen over night? Cause it seemed that way. I was perfectly fine yesterday and all of a sudden today, I have pain, bloody urine and the feeling that I have to pee like every five minutes…. the blood is what really scares me…..

      Hey Malissa,

      It is possible that you may have had a mild UTI for a while without really noticing any signs. And either something you ate or drank the day before triggered the bacteria to suddenly multiply overnight.

      It is a good thing that you took control ASAP and went to see your doctor, since urinary tract infections can get worse really fast (as you’ve experienced). The good news is that you can get rid of the infection just as fast as it sprung up on you – either with some of the remedies outlined on this site and in the UTI Report, or with over-the-counter and prescription medications for extreme cases.

      Hi Roman,

      It sounds like you have a UTI. I’d suggest starting off with drinking at least 8 glasses of water throughout the day. You could substitute half the water with 100% cranberry juice. If you do not like the taste of cranberry juice, then visit your local pharmacy for all natural capsules that contain cranberry extract.

      If the UTI does not subside after this treatment, then seek the help of a doctor for stronger alternatives.

    Hello, I am sexually active with my boyfriend and tend to get a lot of UTI’s, I think my body is getting more prone to it. I drink water but I could probably drink more. I tried flushing out the bacteria, but it simply doesnt go away. I have always had to use antibiotics to cure my uti’s. I also tried cranberry juice. Is there any hope for me to prevent these uti’s? I really hate going back to the clinic to keep getting medicine to cure this problem. thank you!

      Hi Ronnie,

      Having bloody urine often means there is something wrong with your urinary tract. For example, it could mean a UTI, a bladder infection, a kidney infection, possible kidney stones, etc… It’s best to get it checked out by your doctor to find the real cause. Once you know what it is, you can find various treatments available to get you back to full health.

      If it does happen to be a UTI or bladder infection, then there are a number of treatment options available – all discussed on this site.
