Things You'll Need

Plan Your Urinary Tract Cleanse

Choose a time to do your urinary cleanse that will not affect your everyday routine. Since you’ll be drinking a lot of water, you’ll be urinating often. Don’t do this cleanse while traveling.

Consider doing a colon cleanse and a parasite cleanse before you begin your urinary tract cleanse. You may get better results. Read more about these cleanses at CureZone.com (see Resources below).

Select a multi-vitamin before you begin your cleanse. Many vitamins and nutrients can be flushed out when you drink a lot of water. Vitamins made from all-natural ingredients may be more expensive; but it’s believed they’re more readily absorbed by the body.

Do Your Urinary Tract Cleanse

Drink plenty of water during your urinary tract cleanse. This will be the key to your success. Many alternative health experts believe in using “The Water Cure.” Every day on “The Water Cure,” you’re supposed to drink your weight in ounces. For example, if you weigh 150 pounds, you should drink 150 ounces of water–or, a little over a gallon.

Avoid caffeine and alcohol during your cleanse, as well as any type of refined salt. These items can dehydrate you.

Eat only healthy, organic foods that have not been processed, like fruits and vegetables, whole grains, fish and other lean meats. Avoid saturated fats, hydrogenated oils, and sugar.
