      Great article! There is a lot of information here on natural remedies. I have always heard people trying out the cranberry extracts and was always wondering if they worked. Another website that I go to for natural remedies is Natural Standard. Natural Standard was founded by healthcare providers and researchers to provide high-quality, evidence-based information about complementary and alternative medicine including dietary supplements and integrative therapies. Natural Standard gives grades that reflect the level of available scientific data for or against the use of each therapy for a specific medical condition. The website also has other remedies mentioned for treatment of UTI’s such as acupuncture and peppermint. Check out the website!
