Our expert says:
Re bladder infection.
Drink plenty of fluids especially cranberry juice. Drink at least one 8 ounce of water every hour. Steamed-distilled water is preferable to tap water.
Include celery, parsley, and watermelon in your diet. These foods act as natural diuretics and cleansers.
Avoid citrus fruits, these produce alkaline urine that encourages bacterial growth.
Stay away from alcohol, caffeine, carbonated beverages, coffee, chocolate, refined or processed foods and simple sugars. Chemicals in food, drugs and impure water have an adverse effect on the bladder.
