Treatment for Urinary Tract Infections

By Aneron Kepasil

A urinary tract infection begins in your urinary system and research has shown that any part of the urinary system can become infected; however, most infections occur in the lower urinary tract, which is known as the bladder. It has been found that women, more than men, have a higher risk of developing a urinary tract infection. A urinary tract infection that is focused on the bladder can be quite painful. It is important to get treatment for a urinary infection because if left unchecked, can spread into the kidneys and cause further infection.

There are several natural solutions that you can implement to reverse the causes of UTI. Drinking a lot of water is a good way to get rid of potential bacteria that can cause a UTI. avoiding coffee and spicy food can combat the causes of UTI because these foods can irritate the bladder. Decreaseing your sexual activity can combat the causes of UTI. By decreasing your sexual ac tivity you decrease the chance of infection intering your urethra and bladder.

Some home remedies provide UTI relief, but that relief may be only temporary. First and foremost, you should drink plenty of fluids (especially water) to flush out the bladder. Cranberry juice is helpful as well in providing UTI relief, as it inhibits the growth of bacteria and makes it harder for the bacteria to cling to the urinary tract walls. Celery, watermelon and parsley can also contribute to UTI relief by acting as a diuretic and flushing out the bladder.

Another common treatment for uti is drinking lots of water. You should always drink lots of water when you have a uti, but if caught during the early stages, drinking lots of water to flush out the bacteria can cure the problem altogether.

The most widely known remedy for UTI infections is cranberry juice. Juice should be 100% natural with no added sugars. Another option is to take cranberry extract tablets, available at your local health food store. It may be easier for you to take tablets than to drink cranberry juice throughout the day, and the tablets have been shown to be equally effective in the treatment of UTI infections.

A product is available that can do all of these things in one all natural, herbal supplement. Urizol (www.urizol.com) is a herbal supplement that contains many ingredients that will fight any signs of infection in your urinary tract. It contains asparagus, a diruetic which will flush out your system. Urizol also contains cranberry and juniper to destry and prevent growth of bacteria.

Echinacea is also added to Urizol to boost your immune system and help fight infection. And to soothe your urinary tract, Urizol contains Marshmallow mucilage, which is commonly used for both UTI's and kidney stones. Urizol is wonderful alternative to the expense of antibiotics, which can wreak havoc on your digestive system and have unpleasant side effects.
