In brief: Uva Ursi

Once abnormal bacteria have established in the urinary system, the best remedy is oral antibiotics.
Home preventatives may include increasing water intake and pure cranberry supplement. Evidence exists that the herb Uva Ursi (oral preparation) helps prevent the bacteria E. Coli (a very common urine pathogen) from adhering to the bladder wall, preventing infection.
