What are some effective home treatments for an urinary tract infection?

UTI: One of the best things you can do is increase your fluid intake. That will keep urine from becoming to stationary/static and decrease the chance of getting a uti. However if you have one, antibiotics are the best treatment. Options like cranberry juice can help, but they cannot usually kill the bacteria.
