Kidney infections are a nuisance and having them surely wrecks your world.

Kidney infections can travel from one kidney to another or in some rare cases, to other parts of the body. Common symptoms of kidney infections include abdominal pain, frequent urination, a burning sensation during peeing, nausea and fever. While they seem a nuisance, you can actually treat kidney infection without antibiotics. Here are some of the ways through which you can easily treat kidney infection without antibiotics at home.

  • Keep yourself well-hydrated: One of the most economical ways to treat kidney infection without antibiotics is by remaining well-hydrated. Drinking at least 8-10 glasses of water is vital for healthy kidneys. When you are well-hydrated, your kidneys are able to filter out toxins from the blood with ease, reducing the stress on them.
  • Cranberry Juice: Your chances of catching urinary tract infections or UTIs go down considerably, if you consume cranberry juice.
  • Stay Away from Caffeine: Coffee, tea, aerated and carbonated drinks etc. should be altogether avoided, as the consumption of caffeinated drinks puts a lot of stress on our kidneys.  You have the option of taking herbal teas though.
  • Avoid Alcohol and Tobacco: Alcohol impairs the normal functioning of the kidneys. Tobacco also has a negative impact on your overall health. If you have had a history of kidney infections in the past, it will better if you completely avoid both alcohol and tobacco.
  • Probiotics: Probiotics such as yogurt and curd have anti-bacterial properties. Probiotics improve kidney functions and reduce your chances of catching kidney infections as well. Yogurt and curd also help in combating bacterial infections in the body.
  • Vitamin C: Vitamin-C rich fruits like strawberries, citrus fruits, broccoli, black currants etc. are high on anti-oxidants. These fruits reduce the oxidative stress in the body and improve the overall immunity of the body. Including vitamin C rich foods in your diet is a good way to treat kidney infection without antibiotics.
  • Take the Help of Ayurveda: Ayurvedic herbs like punarnava, kaasni, varun, palaash, shirish etc. also help you to treat kidney infections without antibiotics. These herbs have shown good results in promoting healthy kidney functioning. But be sure to consult with your doctor before consuming any herb or medicine.
  • Parsley juice: Parsley juice is a nutrient-dense diuretic (i.e. it promotes a higher urination frequency in your body). The diuretic properties of parsley juice help in a smooth flushing out of toxins from the body.
  • Garlic: The presence of anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antifungal properties of allicin (a compound in garlic) greatly strengthens the ability of your kidneys to fight off infections. Add 2-3 cloves of garlic in your daily diet to see the difference in the health of your kidneys.
  • Rest: Your body repairs itself in sleep. Plus, a good night’s sleep has a positive impact on your body’s immunity. Be sure to secure at least 7 hours of quality sleep each day.
  • Melons: Melon fruits such as watermelon or melon are high-on water. Melon fruits help our kidneys in the smooth flushing out of toxins from the body.
  • Apple Cider Vinegar: Apple cider vinegar or ACV has malic acid and it also boasts of anti-bacterial properties. These anti-bacterial properties help in avoiding bacterial infections.
  • Wear Loose Clothing: If you wear tight-fitting clothing for a long period of time, you could be inadvertently trapping moisture around your genital area, which may result in the higher growth of bacteria. This may worsen your infection-related symptoms. Always wear loose-fitting clothing.
