No: If you truly have a urinary tract infection, whether bladder or kidney, you need antibiotics to cure it. You can try to flush it out w/lots of water. Some try drinking lots of cranberry juice to change bladder environment but once established, you need antibiotics. If you keep getting utis, need to look for reasons why. Consider urine culture to help choose antibiotic. Also consider std/sti.
