UTI is a common problem in the Philippines
"A urinary tract infection (UTI) is an infection in any part of your urinary system — your kidneys, ureters, bladder and urethra. Most infections involve the lower urinary tract — the bladder and the urethra. ... Doctors typically treat urinary tract infections with antibiotics."
One factor that increases the risk for Filipinos to get this Urinary Tract Infection is the hot climate which we have in the Philippines.
When it is hot our body tends to need more fluid to compensate what we lose through sweating. This is not a problem if we drink enough pure clean water. But many struggle with chugging down 8-10 glasses of water in a day. A simple and natural way to fight this is drinking LEMON WATER. This is the best way of digesting that infection. Begin the day with a glass of warm water with lemon juice squeezed into it.
Lemon juice in its natural state is acidic with a pH of about 2, but once metabolized it actually becomes alkaline with a pH well above 7. So, outside the body, anyone can see that lemon juice is very acidic. However, once fully digested, its effect is proven to be alkalizing with many health benefits."
