What is the remedy about?
UTI stands for urinary tract infection and is more prevalent in women. If there is an infection in part of the urinary tract - mainly in bladder or urethra and in severe cases kidney, then it is termed as UTI. It can lead to pain and burning sensation while urinating, and may also result in bleeding.
Are there any side effects?
While preparing the mixture of Baking Soda and water, baking soda should be used very carefully. If it is taken beyond the required amount then it may cause health hazards. High or extended doses can cause nausea, irritability or head aches. So drink this mixture once a day for 1 week only.
If you have liver or kidney related problems then excessive water intake should be restricted as per the guidelines given by doctor.
If you have acidity and heart burn related symptoms then restrict the intake of citrus fruits like lemon and orange. If oranges are taken in excess then they may cause gastrointestinal problems like stomach cramps, digestion problem and sometimes diarrhoea too. The other remedies are quite safer with no side effects as such.
What are the post-remedy guidelines?
How long does it take to recover?
If the infection is not severe and is treated carefully at the very beginning, then it should be cured within 5-6 days.
Are the results of the remedy permanent?
If the infection is not cured and the post remedy guidelines are not followed strictly then chances are there that the infection may return. So the results of the remedy are not permanent.
Is there any training or experts required?
