One of the most widespread old wives tales that pertains to
ones health is the one concerning cranberry juice and your kidneys or urinary
tract. For generations, mothers have been telling their children that drinking
cranberry juice when they are suffering from a kidney or urinary tract infection
that cranberry juice will cure the infection. Well, despite the handing down of
this information generation after generation, people are still turning to their
doctors for help with a kidney or urinary tract infection.
Where this old wives tale started is unknown, but it probably has something to
do with the fact that cranberry juice is one of the few juices that is not an
irritant to the urinary system. This information was probably given to patients
who assumed that if it wasnít bad for the system, it must be a possible cure as
well. Unfortunately, cranberry juice is not a cure for kidney or urinary tract
infections and it is no substitute for antibiotics. While drinking cranberry
juice is not a bad idea when you do have an infection, itís not a cure; it will
just help flush the urinary tract out without irritation.
So, if you have a kidney or urinary tract infection, itís best to see a doctor.
If you like cranberry juice, drink it to help flush the system out, but donít
count on cranberry juice alone, or youíll soon find yourself in excruciating
