Urinary tract infection, or UTI as it is commonly known, is one of the most commonreasons people visit a doctor each year. Antibiotics are the prescribed form of medication for most UTIcases. But sometimes simple home remedies can be practiced which can bring down the severity of thecondition. Take a look at some such treatments described below.Urinary tract infection is caused when the organs comprising the urinary tract, namely the urethra,ureters, or the bladder get infected by bacteria. The bacteria present in the urinary tract get washedaway when urine flows out of the body. But if for some reason the urine pools inside the kidney andbladder, bacteria get a chance to thrive in it which leads to UTI. Enlarged prostate is also a commoncause for UTI in men. The most common symptoms of UTI are cloudy and strong-smelling urineaccompanied by a painful, burning sensation while urinating. You can try out some of the simple hometreatments listed below to get comfort from the symptoms.Home remedies for urinary tract infection ● Observe personal hygiene. Wash the genital area carefully before and after intercourse. ● Consume plenty of liquids. Drink juices and water in ample quantities. Limit the use of alcohol, caffeine, and sugary drinks. ● Cranberry juice is said to have a remedial effect on urinary infection. Its rich in vitamin C and quinolinic acid which is highly useful for patients suffering from UTI. ● Apple cider vinegar and fruits rich in vitamin C, such as blueberries, will strengthen the immune system and help keep infections at bay. ● Bromelain, an enzyme with powerful anti-inflammatory properties, is known to alleviate UTI symptoms. Pineapples are loaded with bromelain, so have this fruit as often as you can. ● Some men take dietary supplements, such as Super Beta Prostate supplements, which help to maintain prostate functioning and a healthy urinary flow. ● Urinate completely and as often as you can. This empties the bladder and stalls the growth of harmful bacteria. ● A heating pad placed over the genital area can bring comfort from pain. ● Wear comfortable and loose clothing. Cotton should be the preferred choice. Don’t wear anything thats too restrictive.These practices listed above may not completely cure the infection, but will certainly help in alleviatingthe painful symptoms. They should be used in conjunction with the medications prescribed by yourdoctor. Dietary supplements for prostate health should be taken after careful review of the product.For example, go through Super Beta Prostate testimonials to know what others are saying about theproduct and its usefulness. If symptoms persist or worsen, don’t delay visiting a healthcare professional.
