When I woke-up yesterday I went into the bathroom and WHAM… I thought, “Uh oh… I am getting a UTI.” The first half of the day was VERY uncomfortable. I had to take the time to pee during pilates class despite the fact that I used the bathroom when I left my house to drive there AND when I got there (the studio is only 2 minutes from my house).
I have clearly crossed into the “TMI” category with this post, but I really want to emphasize that it is possible to fix a UTI under certain circumstances without antibiotics. I work hard to keep all the good bacteria in my gut and I don’t want to take antibiotics that would wipe all the bacteria out of my body if I don’t have to.
Point being, I feel AWESOME today!!! Trust me, I worked at fixing the problem yesterday and I am still working at it today, but it seems as though everything is under control now. PLEASE NOTE – If I wasn’t feeling better this morning, I would have called my doctor.
This is what I did yesterday to try and heal my UTI naturally:
- Took 1 dose of D-Mannose powder EVERY WAKING HOUR for the first day
- Drank 4-5 Liters of water throughout the day
- Ate lots of fruits and veggies
Now, on to happier topics…
