Bladder Inflections

This is a sponsored post.

Having a bladder infection is not fun. It hurts! But, I've always believed that true healing comes from taking a holistic approach. I don't like to take antibiotics unless it is really necessary. The last urinary tract infection I had I managed to fix it through a program of drinking plenty of liquids (water and cranberry juice) and also taking a lot of vitamin C and herbs such as echinacea. All of those things contain ingredients that helped heal it. Even though my regimen worked and I did not need antibiotics, I still had to take a lot of capsules and remember to drink a lot of water. It was worth it because I got healed, but it was also a pain.

I started to think, maybe there is a better way? If I could find something that could help heal bladder infections without antibiotics and without the hassle of going to the doctor but that isn't complicated, I would be very happy. I think I may have found what I was looking for in d mannose. D-mannose is a glyconutrient that can help a lot in these situations. Another thing that can help is to eat yogurt and buttermilk to help bring the good bacteria in your body back in balance. D-mannose helps maintain the health of the bladder and kidneys. So if you are prone to infection, it can prevent them. It can also help heal them. However, if you try it and you still get sick, and the infection just keeps getting worse, it is time to see a doctor.
