Doctor :   It is very important for your system to have a good flow of urine. This can be done by consuming plenty of water. It cleanses your body by diluting and flushing out the unwanted substance.
Doctor :   so drink lots of water
User :   i drink plenty of water
Doctor :   Cranberry juice disallows bacteria to cling to the cell, which line the urinary tract. It is a great remedy to fight this infection. If you cannot have the cranberry juice directly you can mix it with apple juice to add some taste.
User :   ok thnakyou
Doctor :   Vitamin C prevents the bacterial growth due to the acidic environment created in the bladder and the urinary tract. It is very important to have a healthy diet which is rich in minerals and other supplements for your daily quota. You can maintain the alkaline content in urine by a rich diet of milk, fruits, and fresh vegetables.

Doctor :   dont worry

Doctor :   you will see changes in 5- 7 days and then if not another urine test will be done to see if the infection is completely gone or not
