3. The #1 product I carry for UTI's is this:
Nature's Sunshine CRANBERRY and BUCHU CONCENTRATE (2 bottles will give you 2/capsules meal for 1 month). Take 2 capsules/meal until the infection and ALL discomfort clears (increase to 3/meal if severe infection), then stay on this product @ a dosage of 3 capsules/day (1 bottle will give you 3 capsules/day for 1 month) for 1 month following the infection to restore and nourish the genitourinary system. If you battle chronic UTI's this is a good product to continue taking for ~2 additional months (3 capsules/day) and keep on hand in case you get another one.
*Highly recommended: do my free home Candida Spit Test to see if yeast overgrowth is the underlying cause ;) If this test is positive, you will likely continue with recurrent infections until you get the yeast overgrowth cleared up. If this is you, I further recommend scheduling an appointment as this is serious and too complicated to try to manage on your own.
4. I highly recommend additionally taking Nature's Sunshine SILVER SHIELD aqua sol (32oz bottle), my favorite natural antibiotic, anti-viral, anti-fungal and immune booster of all time. THIS Silver product is not the same as colloidal silver. It is patented (patent # is on label), and 100% safe for high dosing and long-term use. You cannot overdose on it or turn blue ;) If you are not a patient and will not be coming in for a visit for me to test or dose you, use this protocol:
1 Tbsp 2x/day (empty stomach) until infection is gone for 2 days. Also apply a little to the urethra opening.
If you get frequent vaginal infections or UTI's, you may want to consider additionally purchasing the Silver Shield Rescue gel for easier topical/vaginal application. It can be used for ANY topical, urethral, vaginal, oral, skin or rectal infection/wound. You can also use it to replace triple antibiotic ointment, burns creams, neosporin, herpes salves, acne treatments, etc.
The Silver Shield liquid and gel have DOZENS of uses and benefits. They will never go to waste and are great starts to your natural medicine cabinet! Watch my Dr. Mom 101 videos to learn more...
5. Take ELEVEN ELEVATED (my strongest probiotic; keep refrigerated): 1/day (at this dose a bottle will last 2 months).
If you got a UTI, that is evidence enough that your microbiome (gut) is out of balance in some way. Your body needs probiotics either from raw fermented foods like low-sugar kombucha or raw sauerkraut or you need to take them supplementally. My Eleven Elevated is a great bang for your buck for the potency and power it packs! You need to know your product. Don't get lured by fancy labels & creative marketing ;)
All products in my protocols are available through my ONLINE STORE at wholesale cost. This link will also lead you to the page that talks about the quality, potency & integrity of Nature's Sunshine Herbs & Supplements.
Prayers for health & wisdom for all of my readers :)
