Folk Medicine Kitchen Remedies for UTI

A urinary tract infection, also known as UTI, can affect both men and women (however, women are more susceptible to contracting UTIs).

This type of infection happens when bacteria enters the body via the urethra. When a urinary tract infection occurs, it can cause mild to severe pain.

If a urinary tract infection goes untreated, it can lead to an infection of the kidneys.

Signs of a UTI include:

  • Back Pain
  • Burning during urination
  • Intense cramping after urination
  • Frequent urges to urinate
  • Nausea and
  • Vomiting

Fortunately, there are a few Folk Medicine Kitchen remedies that may work in certain individuals to prevent UTIs by eradicating the harmful bacteria that causes the urinary tract infection.

3 Folk Medicine Kitchen remedies for urinary tract infections include:

  1. Black Seed Oil (inhibits bacteria that can cause UTIs)

2. Cranberry Juice (component in cranberries may prevent bacterial adhesion to the urinary tract)


3. Garlic ( lowers bacterial counts in urinary tract).

Black seed oil, cranberry juice (the kind that has no added sugar or combined juices) and garlic have been proven to decrease certain bacteria in the urinary tract.

Incorporating these three folk medicine kitchen remedies in to your daily regimen is an inexpensive and healthier way to provide UTI prevention.

CuisinArt Advantage 12-PC Knife Set

Hi everyone. I reviewed the CuisinArt Advantage 12-PC Knife Set (my apologizes for not posting sooner ).

That being said, I have to say …without sounding like a psycho…

The knives are really fun to use: Seriously. For the longest time, I needed a set of knives–knives that actually cut something! The set of knives that I had were my husband’s before he became my husband, which was over 10 years ago. And those knives needed to be replaced.

So, finally after all these years I said, I am going to buy a really nice set of knives — as simple as that.

The CuisinArt Advantage 12-PC Knife Set comes with six knives and the knives come with six knife covers ( 6+6= 12). The knives and their covers come in an array of cool colors which serve appealing to the eyes and also for safety, to lessen the likely hood of cross contamination.

Paring Knife: The paring knife is blue.

The paring knife is a dream. Small in stature but gets the job done without taking off too much of the “meat” off of the veggies and fruit. **I used kiwi fruit for the paring knife demo**.

Utility Knife: This knife is indigo.

For the utility knife demo, I took a box and cut it with the utility knife. Needless to say, it works fine–sharp and doesn’t snag.

Santoku Knife: This knife is green.

I am not a knife connoisseur so I am just now learning about the different types of knives and what they are called and used for; such as the Santoku knife, which originated in Japan.

The name “santoku” means “three virtues”. Using this knife was fairly easy. I found that it was extremely light weight, even in comparison to using the paring knife.

Bread Knife: This knife is yellow. I made a video of the epic slicing of the bread, however I was having a few issues with the resolution size, so I took a screenshot.

This knife was literal butter for bread (pun intended), meaning it cut effortlessly.

Slicing Knife: This knife is red. I used this knife to slice some grass fed beef — just ground hamburger, but the knife was easy to handle and use.

Chef Knife: This knife is purple. Like the Santoku knife demo, it was used to slice up mushrooms and cherry tomatoes to bake in the oven — of course the Chef knife did a fine job.

You can get this Cuisinart Advantage 12-PC Knife Set on Amazon. It is a really nice, purposeful and stylish set that is truly affordable, in my humble opinion, for almost everyone!
