Herbal remedies for urinary tract infection are certainly worth considering if your symptoms are mild. They can have a good success rate and the popularity of natural treatments is climbing generally due to concern over the widespread use of antibiotics.
Ancient history supports the theory that herbs have been used for many centuries to heal all manner of conditions. They are generally good for the whole body and can help support general healing, not just of the urinary tract. Herbal remedies can be an economical option-indeed you may even find that you already have the ingredients to hand in your kitchen cupboards.
Health food stores often carry a range of herbal remedies for urinary tract infections and you may like to consider keeping one of these in the cupboard as a standby.
Other good natural treatments for urinary tract infections include drinking plenty of plain water and perhaps a couple of glasses of unsweetened cranberry juice each day. It is also good practice to avoid sugar, as this can aid the growth of bacteria within the urinary tract. You could also try placing a heat pad on the abdomen and avoid using any perfumed products around the vaginal area.
