Bladder infections are caused by bacteria that enter the urinary tract through one way or another. They can be very painful. Women are the ones who usually get bladder infections. There is cramping, a feeling of needing to urinate but it’s unproductive, and burning. Symptoms range from mild to severe depending on the infection. Here are some natural ways to cure a painful bladder infection.
Barberry can be helpful in the fact that it gives your immune system a boost. This is important when trying to combat any infection you have. If your immune system is up, your body can naturally fight better.
Buchu actually helps to relieve the burning feeling when you go to the bathroom. I have experienced it and it’s painful. We all want to find a way to get rid of it. Use buchu to help.
Dandelion will give your bladder a detox. It can flush out any bacteria that is in there, so that you heal fast.
Uva Ursi is one of the strongest diuretics of all. It targets the infected area and can kill the bacteria that is infecting your bladder and urinary tract.
Garlic boosts your immune system and also is an antibiotic. Use garlic during a bladder infection to ensure speedy healing.
The most common known home remedy for a bladder infection is probably cranberry juice. Many people hate the way it tastes. I would suggest if you hate the taste of pure cranberry juice, use a mixture. There are some brands that make Cran-Apple, Cran-Blackberry, etc. They taste a little better than regular cranberry juice. Cranberry juice works because it keeps bacteria from growing and multiplying in the urinary tract.
Birch leaves are also a diuretic. It is also good for relieving the pain associated with having a bladder infection.
Astragalus fights off the bacterial infection and also gives an extra boost to the immune system.
