UTI: Cranberry juice for UTI is an old wives tale. It has been shown that to acidify your urine enough to inhibit bacterial growth you would have to drink a volume of cranberry juice so large that you would be more likely to drown than affect your uti. You should be seen by a doctor and treated appropriately now because without that it may progress and produce more severe issues.
