Thread: Who here drinks vinegar to help their UTI's??

    Who here drinks vinegar to help their UTI's??

    I'm writing a small article on vinegar + UTI's for my next column in New Mobility. Can anyone here attest to its validity?

    Many thanks!

    Drink it?

    Maybe just a rumor but I thought it thins the blood?

    However, I have had bladder aug, still cath through penis, and
    DO USE a ratio of 1/6 Vinegar-saline for irrigating about a total of
    300 ccs. The vinegar does help soften, unclog, (insert verb here) the mucous in the bladder and makes it easier for me to draw out the piston syringe.

    I've downed some in the past as a dare. Unless you want to projectile vomit through your nose like I did, I wouldn't try it if I was you.

    I've read/heard that vinegar helps keep the urinary tract acidic (same as cranberry juice and vitamin C) and thus helps reduce infections. The recipe that I saw was 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar, 1 teaspoon honey, and a full glass of water. Unfortunately, I can't attest to its' effectiveness because I've never tried it ... sorry.

    Im wondering if you would get the same effect if you just ate alot of vinegar based pickles, dressing, sauces. Just a thought.

    Good luck Tiff. I always look forward to your articles.

    I use it as a vinegar bath (watered down) on Chad to treat yeast ... never tried for UTIs. Hmmmmmm. A new idea perhaps!
