Chiropractic Woodbury MN UTIS

Urinary Tract Infections in Woodbury MN (UTIs) have long been treated with antibiotics. The idea that once a person develops a UTI they will have reoccurring UTIs is no longer accepted, this does not have to be the case!

Who Gets UTIs in Woodbury MN?

UTIs affect both men and women. However, women are more susceptible to urinary tract infections than men. UTIs will affect everyone from children to elderly and cause symptoms may range greatly. In children, common symptoms include loss of appetite, abdominal pain, diarrhea, and nausea. In adults, the most common symptoms are frequent urge to urinate, burning while urinating, cloudy urine or inability to urinate despite the urge. In elderly, symptoms of a UTI may even include mental fog, confusion, and an overall not feeling well.

Previously antibiotics have thought to have been the resolution for many issues including UTIs. In more recent years, the concern is rising for bacteria that causes a UTI to develop resistance to various antibiotics. Antibiotics also destroy the bacterial balance throughout the body.

With antibiotics out of the picture there are still many things you can do to both prevent and treat UTIs.

Let's Fix It! Treating UTIs with a Healthy Diet and Lifestyle

  • Fruits and Vegetables. Increasing the intake of fruits and vegetables, while decreasing the intake of sugars, grains, alcohol, and bad fats.
  • Unsweetened Cranberry Juice. Four ounces per day can help bad bacteria from sticking to the lining of the bladder.
  • Chiropractic Adjustments. Getting regularly adjusted by your chiropractor will help to strengthen the immune system so that it can fight off harmful bacteria.
  • Water. Drinking more water will help to flush bacteria from the urinary tract.
  • Probiotics. By restoring the body to a healthy balance of bacteria the immune system is strengthened and better able to fight UTIs.
  • Vitamin C. A supplement of vitamin C will raise the pH of urine which will inhibit the growth of bacteria in the urinary tract.
  • Apple Cider Vinegar. Another way to help balance the bodies pH naturally is by consuming apple cider vinegar. Even 1tsp mixed into a few ounces of water will help to prevent the body from being too acidic.
