A good way to cure a urinary tract infection at home is to take a sitz bath with vinegar because vinegar changes the pH of the intimate area, fighting the proliferation of harmful bacteria in this region.
Drinking a tea prepared with herbs such as java, horsetail and coriander is also an excellent option, due to its diuretic properties that stimulate the production of urine.
But despite these being great strategies to combat pain and burning when urinating, if these symptoms persist, it is recommended to go to the doctor and perform a urinalysis to find out if you really have a urinary tract infection. In some cases the doctor may prescribe the use of antibiotics for the treatment and, in this case, this herbal tea will be great to complement this treatment.
Vinegar sitz bath
- 3 liters of warm water
- 2 tablespoons vinegar
- 1 clean basin
Place the vinegar in the basin with warm water and mix well and then sit in the basin without underwear for at least 20 minutes. Do the vaginal wash with this same mixture.
3 Herb Tea
A great natural solution for a urinary tract infection is to drink herbal tea prepared with java tea, horsetail and goldenrod because all these medicinal plants help fight the bacteria that cause this infection.
- 1 teaspoon (leaves) of java
- 1 spoon of horsetail (leaves)
- 1 spoon of goldenrod (leaves)
- 3 cups of boiling water
Just put all the ingredients in a bowl and let it rest for about 10 minutes. Strain and then drink, still warm, several times a day, without sweetening because sugar can reduce its effect.
In addition, it is also recommended to drink plenty of water during the day because the more you pee, the faster you will be cured of the urinary infection. To protect yourself, it is advised to avoid using public restrooms, always clean yourself after using the restroom and wash your hands frequently.
