Re: cranberry juice

The effectiveness of cranberry juice has to do (or so they say) with the strong acidity of the cranberries. When strong acidity passes through your bladder and urinary tract, it's supposed to make it very difficult for the bacteria to adhere to the walls, and you flush it out. Cranberry extract in capsules work well too.

I've had good luck with lemon juice in water... but only when I thought a uti might be starting. And certainly if you have any back, or flank pain (above your waist, sides of back) or fever, you really do need to see a doctor and some antibiotics. If you drink a lot of water regularly, it also helps.
