Remedy Description


Ask the Doctor", Dr. Peter Gott, Newspaper Columnist, March 31, 2009



Dear Dr. Gott: I want to tell you about my experience with vitamin C tablets to stop

urinary-tract infections. My urologist suggested two vitamin C tablets (1,000 milligrams

each) daily. I have been free of UTIs for many years with this remedy. My urologist said

it is more difficult for an infection to take hold in acidic urine.


Dear Reader: Your urologist is right on the money. Vitamin C helps increase the amount of

acid in urine. As a result, the bladder is not an appealing environment for harmful

bacteria. You have found a remedy that works for you and may help other readers. Thank you

for writing.
