I'm trying to stave off a urinary tract infection to avoid having to go to the hospital and a friend recommended I add 1 tsp baking soda to the fluids I'm consuming. I'm just wondering – what effects can baking soda have and how much would be too much and make myself sicker? It so far has made the pain tolerable enough to wait to go to the doctor rather than the er – but I don't want to cause other health issues either. Can you suggest any other helpful remedies I can try other than just the basic d-mannose vitamin C and lots of fluids?
I always tell people this….Too much of anything can be harmful to your body. You would be better off getting something from your doctor or go to the emergency room at the hospital. Do not mess around with a urinary infection!!
