5 Natural Treatments for a Urinary Tract Infection

No, not a carbonated drink. (In fact, you’ll want to avoid carbonation when you have a UTI.) Try using baking soda as an aid for the discomfort and pain sometimes associated with a urinary tract infection. Mix one teaspoon of baking soda with eight ounces of fresh water. Stir the water until all the baking soda is dissolved. Then drink the entire glass. It’s recommended that you do this first thing in the morning, but you can drink it at any time and still benefit from it. Because baking soda is alkaline, it helps to neutralize the acidity of urine, which can reduce the burning pain felt upon urination when you have a UTI.
