5 Natural Remedies For Kidney Infection

Kidney infection is a serious condition that requires proper treatment. Kidney infection happens in case of an infection in urinary bladder. If the bladder infection is left untreated, it spreads to kidneys. Sometimes it affects only one of the kidneys but sometimes it spreads to both the kidneys causing lot of pain and discomfort. If the situation is left untreated it can lead to permanent kidney damage. Women are more prone to kidney infections and hence they should be more careful about any sign of infection.

In case of a kidney infection, the patient should resort to proper medication and a change in diet and lifestyle until the infection subsides. Along with conventional medicines, the patient should also take certain natural remedies that are highly effective in resolving the situation as soon as possible. Mentioned below are a few natural fruits and herbs that are considered effective in treating kidney infections.

1. Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar contains malic acid which has certain antibacterial properties that have the potential to cure kidney infections.

Apple cider vinegar can also be taken for urinary bladder infection in order to prevent the infection from spreading into the kidneys. It also helps in resolving bladder infection and in promoting a speedy recovery.

Apple cider vinegar has a pH level of 3.0. At this level of pH bacterial growth and multiplication becomes impossible.

You can take 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar mixed with a glass of water. Take this drink twice in a day.

2. Garlic

Onion juice is also a very good medicine for urinary and kidney infections.


I have frequent urinating problem in at night after X Ray it is found that the passage connecting bladder is narrow as such there is about 130ml urine remains in bladder. For prostate I have been operated by Dr.Lall Malani two times and Dr Madhav Kamath one time as after first operation still when the problem continued Dr.Madhav Kamath said it is not done properly as still there is some portion left .He did it but after 6 month the problem was again & Dr.Lall Malani said after 6 month that still the problem is there & he did it for third time.

Now Dr.Utare has suggested that I should have to be operated again and 20mm tube to be inserted for 1 week to make passage more as the Bladder pressure is less and resistance is more and now the finally Doctor I will not name it now has suggested chloride tablets. Also since diabetic taking Fangurak /Garlic /Turmeric in some or other form. There is some improvement but Vitamin D is also very much effective .

The reason of writing all this is that even leading Urologist named above immediately suggest you operation without trying to cure with medicine while it should be last resort. The home medicine like fenugreek/Tulsi etc. take time but they are effective as my diabetes which was 7.4 is now 6.5 thanks to Dr. Sidharth Shah who was always against Insulin, so please don't get operated and try Home/excersis/allopathic /Aruvedic/Hompathic medicine and operation should be last
