Forgo The Antibiotics

Most of us realize that antibiotics are used much too frequently nowadays. One of the common ailments we use antibiotics for is urinary tract infections. However, berries may be able to rid us of minor urinary tract infections without the use of antibiotics.

Berries act as a diuretic and can help the flow of urine through and out of the urinary tract. They also make the urine acidic, which is conducive to the growth of bacteria. The berries that seem to work the best as a urinary tract remedy are cranberries and bearberries.
