When it comes to urinary tract infections Your doc doesn’t have the answers.
He means well, of course. But if he REALLY knew what was going on, then why do you have to KEEP doing battle with those painful UTIs?
No matter how many times he puts you on antibiotics, they keep coming back.
Heck, even if he has you on a rolling prescription – taking the drugs for months or years – they STILL come back!
Now, a new study shows why.
It exposes just how clueless mainstream medicine is – and why it’s approach to recurring urinary tract infections is always doomed to fail.
More importantly, it reveals a BETTER approach – one that WILL work to help STOP those infections for good.
Frequent urinary tract infections? Here’s why….
When it comes down to it, there are TWO key reasons you can’t quite shake these urinary tract infections.
- Antibiotic resistance: The more meds you take, the more likely you’ll end up infected with a drug-resistant strain of whatever bug your fighting. And that means switching to more powerful antibiotics with more risks.
- The bacteria itself: Conventional medicine has convinced everyone that it’s always E. coli that’s behind those persistent UTIs. But the new study finds at least FOUR other germs in the picture.
These additional germs team up and form communities inside the bladder wall, where they help protect each other, grow and thrive.
The study didn’t look at shared resistance traits, but when germs live in close quarters, they can pass qualities along to each other, such as drug resistance, creating a nightmare.
Eventually, that means drugs don’t work at all… on ANY of them… and your urinary tract infections keep coming back.
How to STOP those UTIs for good
But there is something that DOES work: Cranberry.
Docs will claim it’s an old wive’s tale.
They’ll dismiss it as folk medicine.
They’ll say it’s scientifically proven NOT to work.
And they’re right. Well, sort of.
Cranberry has been used for ages to tackle urinary tract infections. And it is no doubt a key part of the “folk” healing tradition.
And it has flunked some modern studies. But the part they don’t bother to tell you is it’s only because they were designed to fail!
See, many of those studies test cranberry juice – like what you get in the supermarket. The trouble is those products usually contain just a little bit of cranberry and are heavily diluted with other juices.
Plus, more often than those “cranberry juices” are LOADED with a whole lot of extra sugar.
And it’s really no wonder since straight cranberry by itself is about as palatable as shoe leather soaked in lemon, that’s pretty much the only way anyone can stomach it.
But when you dilute the cranberry, you also dilute the compounds that fight bacteria and prevent germs from “sticking” to the walls in the urinary tract. Worse yet, the sugar in juice blends can help to give those bugs what they need to thrive and spread.
There’s another option: Pure cranberry extract.
In one study, just 500 mg of pure cranberry extract per day worked as well as an antibiotic in preventing UTIs in women prone to infections.
In capsules, you won’t have to worry about the tart flavor – and you’ll get just the right levels of compounds to wipe out the germs for good. And unlike the drugs, you don’t risk side effects or antibiotic resistance.
