Use baking soda for a urinary tract infection

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), urinary tract infections are the single most common infection that people contract.

Proponents of the baking soda method for treating a UTI claim that baking soda neutralizes the acid in your urine, which allows your body to take care of the bacteria on its own.

They also claim that baking soda helps detoxify your kidneys, which stops the infection from spreading there and causing damage.

To use baking soda as a treatment for a UTI, it’s recommended that you dissolve 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of baking soda in water and drink it on an empty stomach.

Baking soda is high in alkaline, preventing harmful bacteria from multiplying.

However, be careful, as one review by the California Poison Control System found that out of 192 cases of baking soda poisoning, 4–7 percent of cases were caused by people trying to use baking soda as treatment for UTIs.

By training, I am a American Board Certified Pediatrician. But in my younger years I grew up with natural alternatives. As a mom I have tried to incorporate both for my kids and it has worked wonders. And finally, as I am studying natural & alternative medicines, I realize the beauty and wisdom of living closer to earth. Hence in my practice I integrate both...for acute ailments I follow American Academy of Pediatrics recommendation but for simple and/or chronic conditions I prefer natural alternatives. In western training we were raised to think that "health is the absence of symptoms and problems". But eastern sensibilities has educated me that "Health is state that allows one to use the full capabilities of their body, mind and intellect. Therefore, healthy living is a balanced state of well being: physically, mentally, socially and spiritually." This implies that healing is not a "one-pill-fits-all", but a personalized experience.
