If you are a woman, you have no doubt had a Urinary Tract Infection. It is the most common type of bacterial infection, and really painful and annoying.
When I was young and had a few bouts, I would simply call the doctor and he would phone in the prescription for the pills that turn your pee orange. Now you can buy it over the counter under the company name AZO.
Now I wonder why my doctor didn’t tell me to drink cranberry juice? Granted, it was like 30 years ago â€“ maybe they didn’t know?
But we know now that there are proanthocyanidins in cranberry that prevent E. coli from sticking to the urinary tract and bladder.
If you are suffering from a urinary tract infection, you may want to take cranberry supplements rather than drink a gallon of cranberry juice.
You can also use garlic as a natural antibiotic. The garlic clove must be crushed or minched to allow the chemical reaction to occur, then eaten a minute later. Eat a clove a day for 10 days just like you would an antibiotic. If you cannot eat raw garlic, try spreading it on buttered toast. You like garlic bread, don’t you?
