Some urinary tract infections give us discomfort for a while, then go away on their own. It is always advisable to have your physician run tests to determine the cause of the infection. Too often, women self-medicate with over-the-counter drugs and products that can cause more harm than good if the treatment is not specific to the infection.
Drinking sufficient water is very important when dealing with a UTI, and it is wise to reduce sugary drinks and carbohydrates as well.
Cranberry seems to be a 'go to' for others, but sometimes cranberry juice not enough. Clinical studies have observed that cranberry juice is most effective at the beginning or end of a UTI, but not once it has become established. Our UTI Gone formula features herbs that focus on the cause of the infection. We have had tremendous success with this product to the point we have never had it returned.
When your physician suspects (or confirms) that lowered estrogen is contributing to the bladder lining 'thinning' out, please see our Bladder & Estrogen capsules. Of course, always discuss your supplementation with your physician, especially if they have prescribed medication for this or other conditions.
