Here Are the Top Home Remedies to Fight Against Frequent UTIs


Frequent UTIs are a problem for many women. Even if you’ve only had one UTI in your life, you probably shudder at the thought of getting another one. Prevention can be worth a pound of cure, in this case a round of antibiotics. UTIs are caused by bacteria in the urinary tract. Once you have a UTI, you will most likely have to make an appointment with your doctor to get medication to get rid of it. However, being proactive can prevent a UTI.

What You Can Do at Home to Prevent UTIs

The best way to prevent UTIs is to flush out the bladder often. Take a two-pronged approach. First, stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water. Second, when you do have to go to the bathroom, don’t hold it in. The longer you wait between bathroom breaks, the more time bacteria has to grow.

Prevent bacteria in your urinary tract with these remedies:

·         Wear cotton underwear for breathability. Don’t wear tight pants or nylons for long periods of time.
·         A UTI after sex is common. Urinate after sex to flush bacteria out of your urinary tract.
·         Don’t use feminine products that have scents or chemicals. Avoid douching, which upsets the natural balance of bacteria in your system.
·         Take a daily UTI prevention supplement.
·         Avoid baths and hot tubs. Take showers instead.
·         Talk to your doctor about your birth control and how it might be contributing to your UTIs. Diaphragms, spermicides and lubricated condoms can increase the chance of bacteria getting into your urinary system.
·         Wipe from front to back when you use the bathroom.
·         Hormonal imbalances, such as those during pregnancy or menopause, can make a woman more prone to UTIs. Talk to your doctor if you’re experiencing UTIs and think it could be related.

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
