My question is for all you ladies who have cured a UTI with Cranberry Juice, how much did you drink and how long did it take to work?
I have only had 3 UTI'S in my life time of 53 years, the first one used antibiotics the second one I cured with Parsley Tea, this one I am doing Parsley tea and cranberry Juice, trying to avoid a doctor visit. J.

What can I do next?

I have a chronic bladder condition. Have been dealing with UTIs since birth.

I assume, you really do mean cranberry juice. Natural, organic, etc. and NOT cranberry cocktail. Cocktail anything is just plain useless. For a UTI or anything else. Trader Joe's has the best deal on cranberry juice ($3.99 vs $8-$10 at other stores). I stock up every month.

I stock up and drink it all the time because cranberry juice works best when used preventatively. It is far less effectively when used after UTI symptoms start. Depends on the severity of the UTI I imagine. I drink it all day every day. The juice is highly concentrated. I do about 1 part CJ and 2 parts water.

So go and ahead and try it. But carefully monitor your symptoms because what you might end up doing is keeping the infection at bay vs "curing" it and if left untreated a UTI can reach the kidneys.

I was told by my doctor that if the cranberry juice isn't helping within the first 2-3 days, to go in. In the past I've been able to get through them without antibiotics just everything cranberry and lots of water. Doesn't work for me anymore. I wouldn't be miserable longer than necessary, a UTI can get into your kidneys and become a serious problem.

I've cured them in the past with just drinking a ton of cranberry juice and water. There's no set amount. Just down the stuff all day long. Alternate it with water. Good luck! UTI's are no fun!!

i get uTI'S easy easy easy, but there's a lot of caffeen in my system too.

straight cranberry juice and water should be all you drink for a while, and i had to chug it, the fuller my bladder was the better i felt. i would say try that for a week, then do your normal, if it comes back within a week or two or even days, then go to a dr, you dont' want it going up into your kidneys that can get SERIOUS, my neice recently was hospitalized for a week(8) because of a uti that went in her kidneys

Also try Juice Plus Vineyard blend. It's 13 different berries. Very preventative for these types of things too. You can read about it at WeThriveonJuicePlus.com. Hope you're feeling better soon and great job to you for seeking natural remedies which are effective and soooo much better for you in the long run!

Hi J., I have tried cranberry juice in the past and ended up using antibiotics because that wasn't working for me. I know you want to try home remedies but just incase I'm copying and pasting the ad I found that was helpful for me. Hope it's helpful for you too (as a LAST resort). Good luck!

"If you have experienced a urinary tract infection (UTI) in your lifetime, treat yourself to a $25 Amazon gift card. [http://almatica.com/macro/macrodantin.html] You deserve it!

UTIs account for nearly 10 million doctor visits annually, and one in five women will have at least one UTI in her lifetime, according to the National Kidney Foundation. A UTI occurs when bacteria enter the urinary tract and multiply.

Antibiotics can treat most UTIs successfully, but the type of antibiotics prescribed will depend on several factors, such as the cause of the infection, the type of antibiotic and other medical conditions.
If you experience any of the following symptoms that typically indicate a UTI, you should consider seeing your doctor.
• An urgent need to urinate, often with very little urinate passed
• A burning feeling while urinating
• Cloudy or blood-tinged urine
• Urine with a strong odor
