Can Baking Soda Help Relieve a Urinary Tract Infection?

As you will have read before on this site, unsweetened cranberry juice can be a good help for a urinary tract infection-- however, if you are buying and drinking the kind of cranberry juice in the supermarket, you are getting a lot of sugar which will only worsen your infection.

However, don't be discouraged, because here is a cheap and effective remedy-- just be sure to start doing this at the first hint of an impending urinary tract infection. If you want to know more about how Baking Soda works, read Dr. Young's popular book The pH Miracle: Balance Your Diet, Reclaim Your Health (see it on the sidebar). If you have high blood pressure or other serious health issues, consult your physician before taking in any baking soda.

Put 1/4 teaspoon of common, ordinary Baking Soda into an 8-ounce glass of water.  Stir it up.  Drink it while it fizzes once a day beginning when you feel a urinary tract infection coming on.  Drink for no longer than 2 weeks.
