    I have always heard that drinking Cranberry juice can be a help if you have this condition.  Hope this helps.

    Lots of cranberry juice - drink this to keep urinary tract infections at bay too. Flush out with lots of water as well. I also mix a teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda with water and drink it straight away to help.

    Cranberry juice, citrus fruits and tamarind (either juice or in a non alcoholic drink) are great for urinary infections.

    I agree with all answers. I've had this before and cranberry juice is a definite help.
    And lots of water....

    All of these answers are good ones, but if there is bacteria present, such as E.Coli- you will need an antibiotic.  You don't want it spreading the kidneys which it can do if left untreated.

    Most of the time your own doctor will allow you to bring in a urine sample for testing without having do an office visit.

    To deal with any bacterial or viral infection, drink colloidal silver, which will deal with the problem, the cranberry juice will also deal with it, so best advice take both for a few days, problem solved.

    If you have UTI, drinking 12-24 oz. of cranberry juice can be very effective.  In addition to Emma's answer, cranberrry juice contains high concentrations of Vitamin C and Quinolic Acid, both of which are known to help treat UTI since they help prevent bacteria from anchoring onto bladder walls.  As a preventive measure against urinary tract infections, drinking at least 3 oz per day works quite well.

    I think we all agree that cranberry juice is great, but it has to be taken early on. Don't wait too long to go to a doctor. If you are prone to this, cranberry juice (you can even get capsules now) taken daily can be a big help as a preventative measure. I drink half a glass of juice every day to be on the safe side.

    Cranberry juice can help to flush out the infection along with anti-biotics. Also, if you are prone to getting urine infections, taking cranberry juice on a regualr basis also helps to prevent them. In addition just drinking plenty of fluids, especially water, is always good for keeping he urinary system healthy.

    Cranberry juice is one effective treatment, but it has to be pure cranberry juice, not the cocktail kind in the stores. You'd want to drink 16-24 oz per day.
    Uva ursi, helps to kill bacteria. It possesses a compound called arbutin, which the body converts into a bacteria-killing substance. In Europe, uva ursi is widely used to treat UTIs. If you drink too much cranberry, it can affect the PH of your urine. In order for arbutin to work, you need to have alkaline urine. This can be accomplished by taking a small amount of baking soda.
    Goldenseal and Oregon grape both contain berberine and other alkaloids that kill bacteria and stimulate the immune system. These herbs also appear to inhibit infection-causing bacteria from adhering to the wall of the bladder, so they are sloughed off in urine. These should not be used for more than one week
    Herbs that have diuretic abilities can help wash away bacteria. Dandelion leaves are diuretics.
    Marshmallow root is great for soothing inflamed areas and it enhances immune function to help fight off unwanted bacteria.
    Juniper berry is also sometimes used.

    Cranberry juice is excellent BUT make it yourself.  If you have a juicer, take fresh cranberries, oranges and lemons and juice them.  Best if these are organic.  Make this throughout the day and consume.  This provides your body with FRESH, live nutrients that haven't been pasteurized and this will help fight the infection at a much stronger and higher level than bottled cranberry juice.  The oranges give you an extra dose of Vit C and lemons, while acidic in their natural state, become alkaline once inside the body.  This helps with healing as well.

    Good luck!

    cranberry juice and you know it! I have mine on stand by and it has worked its way on me and plenty of water too. I also drink tea without milk throughout the day, it is better than drinking water. Tea is not dehydrating and has countless other benefits. This is an alternative i have taken because i do not like drinking water all the time and if i don't, results aren't that great. You can here find benefits of drinking tea: http://www.englishteastore.com/howisteagofo.html

    Hi i'm a medical 4th yr student at Trinity School of Medical Sciences,
    The best natural remedies for UTI :
    - bacterial : cinnamon and honey tea for 3 days two times a day. If the infection doesn't clear then it means it's either too far gone and requires some antibiotics or it is
    - fungal : certain persons are previe to fungal UTIs especially persons with Fibromyalgia because they have an uprising of Candida in the body which overpowers and somewhat eliminates the bacteria. Cayenne pepper and garlic are excellent for fungal infections however garlic lowers the blood pressure so take in moderation. It is best to eat the garlic raw or slightly roasted and sprinkle cayenne pepper over each meal. These ingredients have a build up effect and within the course of 4 days the symptoms should be reduced to gone. If not then get to a doctor asap for a medication like Ketoconazole.
    Coconut water and cranberry juice are very good to take during the natural treatment and regularly to prevent UTIs because they help to acidify the urine which is now alkaline due to the microbe.
    Also note that for fungal UTIs it's good to lower your starch content as this feeds Candida which can contribute to more urinary and bladder infections.
