Hi, I read that cranberry juice is effective in fighting urinary-tract infections. Rich in vitamin C and antioxidants, “cranberry juice also has antimicrobial qualities, which makes it especially effective in combating urinary-tract infections.” While its healing properties may not be as effective as antibiotics in cases of acute infection, one microbiologist claims that drinking 12 to 15 ounces (0.3 to 0.4 L) of juice daily will help to “wash out” bacteria in the urine.

You go to the doctor and get the correct antibiotics before it gets worse and spreads to your kidneys. If you put off treating it, it take two or three rounds of antibiotics. (Been there done that.)
