Dear MsRusty, 

There are some home remedies mentioned. However, I'd encourage you to
talk with a physician and not just use "home remedies" for a serious
problem such as kidney infections.

Kidney infections are a serious condition and require immediate medical treatment.

I have heard that cranberry juice is good for all types of urinary
ailments, but I've never needed to try it. I would also recommend
seeing an MD.

Cranberry juice only works for minor bladder infections, and only for
some people. Please see a doctor if you think you may have a kidney
infection. It's very serious and could cause your kidneys to fail. You
don't want that! Your kidneys are something you don't want to mess
around with. Good news, a short course of antibiotics will get rid of
it in short order. If you have pain in your lower back along with
burning urination, see a doc NOW! The emergency room is not
innapropriate in this case.

Home remedy and other supplementation food can only make an acidic
urine (most of us are acidic!) alkaline.  When we have bladder
inflammation, acidic urine will create irritation which gave rise to
frequent urination and burning sensation at our urethra.  So as you
can imagine, make urine alkaline can minimise the 'symptoms' but NOT
killing the bacteria.   In that respect, i would recommend all to
visit a physician or an MD for treatment.
Kidney infection usually occurred after the infection has gone up from
bladder to the kidney, which means it has deteriorated.  It causes
Pyelonephritis and potentially ruin the whole kidney.  Worst still, it
can cause sepsis and potentiallly fatal.
