Do you know what the most common form of bacterial infection is?

It’s a urinary tract infection, or UTI.

If you’re one of the millions who have had one, you know just how painful and uncomfortable these infections are.

Mainstream’s only solutions are antibiotics, but with the rise of antibiotic resistance, it’s time to start searching for alternatives.

Here are four of the best anti-UTI treatments nature has to offer.


These tart berries are probably the most popular natural remedy for UTIs—and now we know how they work their magic.

Cranberries contain proanthocyanidins, which act like Teflon in your urinary tract.

Essentially, they keep bacteria from sticking to the surface of the urethra by disabling the structure on the surface of the bacteria that enable it to stick to the wall of your urethra.

No attachment means no infection.

In one study, when women experiencing chronic UTIs took 400 mg/day of cranberry extract, it ELIMINATED their UTIs.

Marshmallow root

Marshmallow root (not to be confused with the sugary marshmallow candy) is an herbal medicine that is best known for easing coughs and sore throats, but it’s becoming a rising star for the preventing of UTIs.

Marshmallow root helps increase the flush of toxins out of your body and combats bacteria like E. coli, the primary bacteria implicated in UTIs.

It also strengthens the tissues in your urinary tract, which makes them less susceptible to infections.


Medicine men have been harnessing the powers of bearberry for thousands of years to treat both bladder and kidney infections.

It contains compounds that have antibacterial properties, it helps maintain the pH balance of your urine, and it helps combat inflammation in the urinary tract.

Corn silk

The silky fibers that stick to your corn on the cob are a nuisance. But hiding inside these sticky strings are substances that help combat inflammation and bacteria.

And in this case, a study didn’t just show that corn silk could prevent UTIs… it showed that it could dramatically reduce the symptoms associated with this infection.

When adults with current UTIs took a corn silk extract, they experienced significant reductions in pain, frequency, and urgency that are the hallmark of UTIs.

If you’re on the millions who experience frequent UTIs, why not try a different approach. Try a natural remedy that can help stop the infection before it ever has a chance to start.

All of these natural options are available in various forms (tablets, teas, juices, etc.) through online retailers like
