Urinary tract infection is also known as 'honeymoon cystitis', as it is commonly seen in newlywed women.

Causes for UTI can be due to a number of reasons that can lead to bacterial infections.

So, here are a few natural tips to help reduce UTI, which you can follow.

Tip #1: Drink Lots Of Water

Firstly, it is important to drink more water than your daily requirement when you have UTI, as water can flush out the bacteria from the urinary tract.

Tip #2: Consume Citrus Fruits

Consume citrus fruit and foods rich in vitamin C, or you can also take vitamin C supplements, as vitamin C helps in a quicker healing of the infection.

Tip #3: Apply Ice Or Hot Water Packs

Apply ice or hot water packs to the areas in which you are experiencing a lot of inflammation and itching, so that the inflammation comes down.

Tip #4: Avoid Coffee, Alcohol

Avoid bladder irritating foods such as coffee, alcohol, spicy foods, artificial sweeteners, etc., from your diet, as these can only make UTI worse!

Tip #5: Pass Urine Often

Pass urine as often as you can, even though it may be painful during UTI. Holding urine during UTI will definitely worsen the infection.

Tip #6: Washing Tips After Passing Stools

While washing yourself after passing stools, wash and wipe from front to back; if you do it from back to front, bacteria from the stools could get into the urethra and worsen the infection.

Tip #7: Consume Cranberry Juice

Consume raw, organic cranberry juice on a daily basis, as cranberry juice is filled with antibacterial properties that can heal UTIs.
