Cure Urinary Tract Infections with Baking Soda
Most urinary tract infections are caused by E. coli bacteria, which are normally found in the rectum. A urinary tract infection can also be caused by an infection of the bladder or urethra. Symptoms of a UTI include frequent and urgent needs to urinate, painful urination, cloudy urine, lower back or abdominal pain, and blood in the urine. A good way to cure a UTI is to use baking soda. Baking soda makes the bladder more alkaline, which prevents bacteria from multiplying. Mix 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda with 8 ounces of water at the first sign of symptoms of a UTI and drink once or twice a day until you see a doctor and start taking antibiotics.
