UTI REMEDY REMINDER & Mystery Giveaway Winner

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

    Great topic! UTI’s are so common in women and a lot of people are afraid to talk about them. I learned how to cure them naturally when I was without health insurance. I drink apple cider vinegar (a couple tablespoons mixed with hot water, a regular size mug full) as often as I can handle (at least twice a day but preferably three or four). And take cranberry pills, whatever the recommended dose on the bottle is. And drink lots of water of course 🙂 And it works every time!

  2. Such a better way to fix it! I hate going to get antibiotic when they aren’t really necessary.

    Due to a series of urinary infections, my MD recommended the Lady Soma Cranberry Concentrate Supplement. It was amazing. This product in particular has the highest concentration in the market. Maybe it is a coincidence, but problems have started to resolve themselves.
