Juicing Recipes for Urinary Tract Infections

Urinary tract infections (UTI’s) often bring with them uncomfortable and sometimes painful symptoms. They are caused by an overgrowth of yeast or bad bacteria. The infection can travel from the urethra into the bladder and bacteria can then settle into the irritated tissue found there. When the bladder is inflamed this leads to frequent and painful urination. It can also lead to cramps and backaches as well as an overall general feeling of malaise throughout the body.

Foods + Natural Juices = Healing

Foods and natural juices are the healing medicines that nature uses to treat urinary tract problems such as cystitis and bladder infections. For that reason you should make the appropriate modifications to your diet in order to speed the rate of healing as well as to prevent the recurrence of the UTI.

juice for UTIAs far as nutrition is concerned you need to consume foods that help to acidify the urine as this reduces the growth of bacteria. Foods that can do this include cranberries, plums, prunes, corn, lentils, peanuts and walnuts. You also need to make sure that you are eating enough protein as this helps to improve the function of your kidneys. Eating raw foods and drinking raw juices that you make yourself at home are good because they are alkaline in nature. Alkaline foods serve to strengthen the immune system. A person who suffers from frequent urinary tract infections needs to reduce the acidic foods they eat and needs to increase their intake of alkaline foods.

Another preventative means of treating bladder problems is to increase the amount of water you drink. When you drink an adequate amount of water you flush out your urinary system. Natural cranberry juice and blueberry juice is good for you as these types of juices are composed of proanthocyanidins. This substance prevents bacteria from sticking to the lining of the bladder.
