UTIs are long and painful.
Even when they are healed, they can still come back.
Fortunately, you can turn to proven natural home remedies for relief.
It's still better than antibiotics.
Here are the 7 effective remedies to cure a urinary tract infection before going to the doctor.
Cystitis is the most common form of urinary tract infections. If you're prone to it (or prone, women are most affected), you're used to the symptoms.
As soon as they appear, there are 4 natural remedies to follow:
Thyme is antibacterial and antiviral, which is ideal in the case of cystitis.
Infuse 25 g of thyme in 1 liter of water, strain and drink approximately every 4 hours.
Medicated juice is a potion made from baking soda and aspirin. It is useful to reduce pain.
Mix in a glass 2 tablets of aspirin, 1 teaspoon of baking soda and 1 teaspoon of lemon juice. Fill your glass with water. Drink this mixture 2 times a day.
The poultice relieves pain and de-stresses. Do not hesitate to alternate with other treatments.
Boil 2 or 3 leeks for a few minutes. Fry them in a pan with olive oil. When they are lukewarm, place them on your belly, under a towel. Keep your belly warm for at least 15 min.
You can alternate with green clay poultices.
The artichoke has diuretic virtues. It helps you pass the infection faster. Drink 3 cups of artichoke tea during the day. Fennel and cherry stems work too, as well as green tea.
If you want to drink artichoke infusions, we recommend this one.
In other cases of urinary tract infections, there are also effective natural remedies that help relieve you.
Infuse 1 teaspoon of celery seeds in 50 cl of boiling water. Filter and drink 3 cups a day. You can find celery seeds in organic stores and herbalists, or even here on the Internet.
Parsley, here associated with cumin, has diuretic and antibacterial properties.
Infuse 3 sprigs of parsley and 1 tablespoon of cumin seeds in 1 liter of water for 5 minutes. Filter and drink 3 to 4 cups a day.
As we often say, apple cider vinegar, thanks to its many mineral salts, is a magic food for health.
Mix in a glass of lukewarm water 2 teaspoons of cider vinegar and 1 teaspoon of honey. Drink this mixture every morning on an empty stomach.
In any case, remember to drink plenty of water during the day, much more than usual if possible. Also consider seeing a doctor if symptoms persist.
