Remedy for Urine Infection

Recently my daughter was hospitalise for Urine Infection (UTI) for 4 days. After she was discharge, i made a trip down to my usual medical store a kind lady taught me this method to boil for (UTI). Later on, i hear from some old folks mentioning about this remedy and hence i decided to post this on my blog. Hope it will be useful for others too.

Here are some research i found on the website:

 Corn Silk
  • A soothing diuretic for irritation of the bladder, urethra and prostate.
  • Relieves urinary tract inflammation and bedwetting in children.
  • Effective for difficult and scant urination, cystitis and kidney stones.
Ingredients  (For kids/adults please double the ingredients)
1 cup dried corn silk (a handful)
140g Chinese barley
650ml water
35g-40g yellow lump sugar (individual preference)
35g raw winter melon (optional)
2 dried winter melon (optional)

  1. Wash all ingredients. Boil water put all ingredients into the boiling water.
  2. Using medium heat continue to boil for 30 minutes till the barley are soft and the water become thicken.
  3. Add sugar and stir well.
  4. Sieve away the barley and serve it warm or cold.
  • Serious cases boil 2-3 times per week.
  • Normal on recovering process boil 1-2 times per week.
  • The above recipes was purely rely on my own estimation, as i had the habit of using my hand to boil soup (lazy to measure one-by-one). But i tried to measure the ingredient this time round.
  • The portion of the recipes are only suitable for kids, as for adults please double the ingredients.
  • I used cane sugar (yellowish colour small rock sugar) and Chinese barley, cos it more cooling.
  • To speed up the process put a ceramic spoon in the boiling water.
