Herbs are natural, and many have antimicrobial and antiseptic properties. Goldenseal is an herb that can be used to help your body fight off a urinary tract infection. It can be consumed as a tea. Simply add one teaspoon of goldenseal to a cup of hot water and drink it. Uva ursi, or bearberry, has been used for its antiseptic properties, and tea can be made from uva ursi leaves. Corn silk is the stringy silk that is removed from corn when the outer husk is taken off. It can be used as a diuretic, as well as an antimicrobial agent. Another herb that can be used is buchu. And if you’re looking for another natural diuretic, one simple solution is celery seeds. Snack on celery seeds after your meals, and you’ll have the advantage of the seeds’ ability to promote the flow of urine as a diuretic, which helps to clear toxins from your body, and you’ll also enjoy the seeds’ ability to fight off indigestion at the same time. Celery seeds also help ease the inflammation that accompanies a urinary tract infection.
