Notes
  1. On the theme of Urinary tract infections and the best foods to help soothe them, this recipe boasts tonnes of healing power. Broccoli for fibre, kefir for probiotics, apple cider vinegar to flush out the bladder and cranberry to eradicate bacteria. Please note: Dried cranberries are sweetened so their action will not be as strong as pure fresh cranberries.
