Does a person suffering from frequent UTI's need to keep her urine acidic ?

I was wondering why the doctor would tell my aunt to keep her urine acidic, she has a lot of UTI's. I am trying to get her to change to more natural food diet and healthier alkaline water but she refuses. I know Dr Otto Warburg won the nobel prize for showing disease thrives in an acid environment, and cannot thrive in an alkaline one.
