A urinary tract infection affects any part of the urinary system, the kidneys, bladder, or urethra.
Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are a common health problem.
While both men and women get UTIs, women are more prone to them.
A UTI occurs when the bladder and its exit tubes are infected by bacteria.
Some of the causes of a urinary tract infection are sexual intercourse, waiting too long to urinate, pregnancy, menopause, and diabetes.
Common symptoms of urinary tract infection include:
- the frequent urge to urinate
- the passing small quantities of urine
- a burning sensation when urinating
- a change in urine color
- abdominal pain
- lower back pain
- nausea and vomiting
Believe it or not, we do not need the services of a doctor to relieve the discomfort of a urinary tract infection.
Antibiotics are still the most common approach to killing the bacteria causing the infection…
But urinary tract infections are bacterial infections growing resistant to antibiotics.
The good news is there is a natural drink that works like crazy to keep urinary tract infections at bay.
I use coconut milk to fight off UTIs.
I drink a 12-ounce glass of this coconut milk at the first sign of a UTI. And then I continue drinking it weekly to stay ahead of future UTIs.
