Baking Soda for Bladder Infections?

Answer

Bladder infections are bacterial and affect both men and women of all ages. While the infection does need treatment from a doctor, there are ways you can ease the pain at home. Drinking a mixture of baking soda and water may help ease the symptoms of a urinary tract infection, such as burning or painful urination. The baking soda not only helps the burning but it can reduce the urge of frequent urination. The mixture should be about 1 cup of water to 1 teaspoon of baking soda and be well-mixed. The alkaline properties of the baking soda reduces the acidity in the urine which is what causes the pain.
