This is a great recipe for those who are in good overall health, but suffer from reoccurring urinary tract infections. The baking soda recipe will help keep the infection down after being properly treated by a trained medical professional. This is a great, natural ongoing therapy anyone can take average of.
If you are having frequent UTIs due to the use of urinary catheterization; it’s important that your bladder is getting a good washout daily if possible. My loved one uses a daily solution bladder irrigation called Gentamicin. This is used on people who suffer from chronic urinary tracts infections.
In our opinion, Gentamicin is a great bladder irrigation with antibiotics that you should talk to your doctor about. If for whatever reason you or your doctor decide against the use of Gentamicin, a lesser alternative would be sterile saline. This too, is really good for bladder washouts.
Based on personal experiences when you combine a daily bladder cleanser in addition to some simple diet changes (like this recipe), you will drastically decrease your chances of getting a UTI.
This recipe calls for baking soda or cream of tarter, pure cranberry juice, distilled water or spring water and vitamin C supplement.
Baking Soda (sodium bicarbonate)
■ Cost effective
■ Alkaline ingredient
■ Keep PH stable
Cream of Tartar (potassium bitartrate)
■ Use for baking
■ Keep your PH in check
■ Good source of potassium if you need a boost
Pure Cranberry Juice
■ Rich in antioxidants
■ Rich in vitamins and minerals like vitamin B-6, thiamin, vitamin K, phosphorus,
Note: Even though pure cranberry juice is very tart, bitter in taste. It’s the best form of cranberry juice when fighting an UTI because of it’s full strength. Sugary foods irritates the bladder; bacteria feeds off this sweet stuff and multiple. Therefore while you are going through an infection, we recommend that you avoid all sweets during this time.
■ Acidify the urine
■ Reduce bacteria growth
■ Purest water
■ Help flushes toxins out the body
