UTI have been something that I have been dealing with pretty much as long as you explained in this post. I always back up any UTI treatment with Antibiotic though. You need to get a resolve with professional medicine, but it doesn't mean you have wait til you doctor can see you either. I don't go to the ER each time because that can be real expensive real quick. I call my doctor, schedule an appointment which is probably a week or two from the phone call, go to the store and buy Cystex UTI tablets to make sure that my body doesn't get worse. Probiotics like this one aren't a cure for UTI, but don't keep the UTI at bay while you are waiting to see the doctor. After the urinary tract infection is fully finished, I then go and buy their preventive solution for UTI symptoms. I like this product even more than the tablets because it requires only a tablespoon a day and you are guaranteed to be UTI free for as long as you are taking it. I love this so much because it is focused on creating healthy bacteria for your body so that it can fight off infection down the road if you are someone who gets reoccurring UTIs.
Great post! :)
