With Urinary Tract Infection's (UTI), they're preventable and treatable with the use of natural methods – just like everything else. Of course, the first step you should take is to increase your level of fluids. Drinking more fluids will dilute the urine and helps flush harmful bacteria out. since bladder infections are caused by a buildup of bacteria.

In addition to drinking at least eight glasses of water a day, cranberry juice can be especially helpful in warding off bladder infections. Ray D. Strand writes in Death by Prescription: "Cranberry juice works because it prevents the bacteria that cause the infection from sticking to the lining of the urinary tract,". He also goes on to suggest individuals who are prone to infection should drink eight ounces of cranberry juice a day. As usual I'd suggest a natural form of Cranberry Juice that is pesticide free and unsweetened. This doesn't directly affect your UTI, but it does affect your health in gerenal, which is the most important thing.

Drinking lots of fluids results in more frequent urination, which also helps the body fight infection. Frequent restroom trips are a good thing, according to the following passage in Symptoms: Their Causes and Cures , by The Editors of Prevention Magazine Health Books. "If you habitually resist the urge to urinate, you'll enlarge the capacity of your bladder and may also cause a bladder infection," says Joseph M. Montella, M.D., an assistant professor and director of the Division of Urogynecology in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Jefferson Medical College of Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia. "At the worst extreme, your bladder eventually could become so big and so out of shape that it loses its ability to contract." Later, in the same book, Dr. Jack Lapides, an urologist from Ann Arbor, Mich., says a person should urinate regularly every three to four hours.

You can use colloidal or ionic silver to eliminate UTIs, and UTIs can be quite persistent in some people, which also has to do with the acid/alkaline balance of their diet (we'll get into this ph balance in another article). Collodial or Ionic Silver products may be hard to obtain however due to the FDA's crusade against it (and other natural remidies that take money away from the Big Pharma and Big Medicine companies).
