In brief: Help, notlikely cure

Uti's mostle female, cause many doc visits, cost > $1.
5 billion/yr, most minor infections of urine bladder, due to short urethra, close to vagina/anus. Ladies, after bm, wipe front to back; drink 6 oz water; urinate shortly after sex, don't wear nylon undies. Cranberry juice helps prevent and clear minor cystitis by preventing bacteria adhering to bladder wall. If symptoms persist, yeh, u know, c mr gp.

In brief: May still need Abx

You will probably still need antibiotic treatment for an established uti.
Cranberry juice is most effective in prevention as it somehow prevents e. Coli, the most common UTI bacteria from attaching itself to the bladder wall which is when the infectious process starts.
