Herbal Tea for Urinary Tract Infection

by Diane
(Phoenix, AZ)

About 35 years ago my sister in law told me about a tea that helped with urinary tract infections. I got some, and when I had a UTI, the tea actually got rid of it every time. Now she doesn't remember what it was (we're getting older) and I don't remember either. All I know is it's not Cleavers tea, which tastes just horrid and did not work for me and is not the tea she told me about. I'm at a loss. Can you help me?

UTI Relief Tea

I don't know if this is the tea you are talking about but it really work for me. It's called Comfort Teas (www.comfortteas.com). At the first sign of an infection I have 2-3 cups a day. Afterwards I go to 1 cup a day to help prevent future urinary tract infections. I hope you find it helps you too!

Herbal Teas & Urinary Tract Infections

Hi Diane,

There are several teas used to treat Urinary Tract Infections, I'm really not sure which one your asking about but here are some that you might be interested in, uva-ursi, calendula flowers, juniper berries, goldenrod,couch-grass-root, horsetail and marsh-mellow root. They all act as a anti-inflammatories and diuretics.

Here is a recipe you might want to try:

1 ounce of uva-ursi leaves
1 ounce goldenrod
1 ounce calendula flowers
2 ounces marsh-mallow root
2 ounces licorice root

Pour 1 cup of boiling water over 1 teaspoon of this mixture. Let steep 10 minutes and strain. Drink 1 cup several times a day.

I also recommend drinking lots of cranberry juice for UTI. It helps coat the bladder and keeps bacteria from sticking to the lining. You can find the page I wrote about it under "Home Remedies" then look for the link "Home Remedy for Urinary Tract Infection".
