Use These 5 Home Remedies To Treat Urinary Tract Infection (UTI)

Do you start taking antibiotics right away if you have a urinary tract infection (UTI)? Instead, give these 5 home cures a try if you're suffering from a UTI.

Urination is the process through which your body eliminates toxins and waste fluids from your system. But what if you're terrified of urinating in discomfort, so you put off going to the bathroom? If this is the case, you could be suffering from a urinary tract infection (UTI), which causes painful urination. Second, holding your urine might make symptoms of a urinary tract infection worse. On the other side, certain UTI home remedies have been proved to alleviate the irritation.

A urinary tract infection (UTI) is a condition that can be treated. Antibiotics are an easy method to avoid it. Why don't you give these natural remedies a shot to get relief from UTI symptoms right away?

In an interview with HealthShots, Dr. Madhuri Burande Laha, Consultant Obstetrician & Gynecologist, Motherhood Hospital, Kharadi, Mumbai, disclosed the top five home treatments for treating UTIs.

Drink enough water.

If you have a urinary tract infection (UTI), you must stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water. This can help with toxin clearance from the urinary tract. Drink at least 8 glasses of water throughout the day. You should also avoid drinking alcohol or caffeine, as both can irritate the bladder.

Eating a well-balanced diet is key.

Eat foods high in zinc and vitamin C to help prevent UTIs. Include strawberries, broccoli, citrus fruits, sprouts, seeds, legumes, and eggs in your diet. Foods that are processed, canned or oily should be avoided.

Have cranberry juice.

Proanthocyanidins, a compound found in cranberry juice, help prevent E. Coli bacteria from entering the tissues of the urinary tract. Furthermore, the vitamin C in the juice will aid in the prevention of hazardous bacteria growth.

Don’t forget probiotics.

Probiotic pills and fermented foods are good for the gut and can help you avoid a UTI.

Applying a heating pad can be beneficial.

What if I told you that Burning, pressure, and discomfort can occur as a result of inflammation and irritation caused by a UTI? As a result, using a heating pad can help. It can calm the area, reduce discomfort, and reduce inflammation. However, you should not apply it straight to the skin. Place a clean cloth on the area first, then the heat pad, and you will notice a significant change.

"Most essential, don't start antibiotics on your own or rely on a pharmacy or an old prescription." If you do, you'll be in big danger because more urine testing won't help you figure out which organism is causing the UTI. Self-medication won't help you locate appropriate antibiotics, either," warns the expert.

Note: Give these home remedies a day or two to work, and if the symptoms persist, visit a doctor right away. The doctor will examine the condition, determine the source of the problem, and recommend the best course of action. However, don't delay because UTI discomfort and burning usually intensify quickly, making it intolerable for sufferers.
