Hi! Quite a few months ago I posted about my dd having a possible UTI and someone suggested a tea made of cinnamon and I forget what else (maybe honey? or maybe it was just cinnamon???). Now I think I have a threatening bladder infection and I'd like to try that tea as it worked well with dd. Anyone know what I'm talking about? If so - how much cinnamon, and what else (if anything) is in the tea?

TIA!

I was not the one. And I don't know the answer but here are a few other suggestions -

Urinary infection -
Uva Ursi Tea (diuretic; do not take Vitamin C, tomatoes, or citric fruit at the same time);
Astragalus tea (diuretic and reduces protein uria);
Saw Palmetto;
Vitamin C;
Equisetum arvense - Horsetail Grass (diuretic);
Althea Rose root;
Cranberry Capsules;
Lapacho Tea (diuretic);
Homeopathic medicine: Bladder Irritation (Natra-bio)
