Dear friends at Life-Saving Natural Cures and Natural Remedies. For treatment of a urinary tract infection, how many micro grams or milligrams of potassium iodide should I take, how many times in a day, and for how long?

Thank you so much for your time!


Hi Sheila, and thanks for your question regarding potassium iodide for treating a UTI.

Firstly, it will depend on the strength of the potassium iodide as to how much you take every day. Make sure you only buy the high strength USP grade potassium iodide (like this one) and follow the directions on the side of the bottle or packet. Take the highest recommended amount listed for a period of two weeks. If you decide to continue to take it longer simply back off to the "maintenance" dose or lowest recommended dose.

In addition to this, don't forget to use some of the other UTI remedies that we list, particularly the D-mannose and probiotics, which work extremely well.

And finally, drink lots of water and be sure to avoid sugar like the plague!

Hope this helps you Sheila.

Good luck and all the best to you!

Best regards
