How To Prevent And Treat A UTI

 

 

Who loves a good UTI?  No one?  I didn’t think so.  Most of us have been subjected to one throughout our years and it is one of the most obnoxious feelings in the world.  I remember when I had a UTI, I just could not understand what was going on.  I was so scared to go near a toilet because I knew the pain would be practically unbearable.  I eventually went to my doc and got an antibiotic.  Yep, an antibiotic.  Cleary this happened before my holistic wellness days. I researched the causes and nailed the culprit down to drinking pop.  I am not and never have been a big pop person, but I had consumed more than usual around that time.  My body was accustomed to my favorite drink which is plain old water and obviously went haywire with the overload of carbonated sugar.

With all of that being said, recently, I have a had a few clients come to me needing support for their UTI issues.  I decided to make a quick post as a reference guide for you guys, so let’s get to it.

What is a UTI? A UTI is a bacterial infection of the urinary tract. It is most commonly caused by the bacteria e-Coli but could be caused by other bacteria as well.  However, e-Coli is the most common one. 
 
Symptoms include the urge of always needing to urinate but only a little actually coming out, burning when you actually do urinate, blood in the urine and cloudy urine. The interesting thing is there is usually blood in the urine when they test you at the doc’s office but you can’t see it.
Here are some steps you can take to reduce your chances of getting a UTI.  Most of these are geared toward women as women are more susceptible to getting them than men are.
 
 Follow these steps to reduce your chances of getting a UTI:
 
  • Urinate after sex.
  • Stay hydrated
  • When you have to pee, go pee! Don’t hold it.
  • Reduce your risk of STDs
  • Ditch oral contraceptives. If you take them your chances of getting a UTI is increased by 50%. Another reason to not take oral birth control.
  • Make sure you are wiping front to back after you use the restroom.
  • Reduce your use of synthetic vaginal products (tampons,etc) and toilet tissue. Look into the diva cup, etc if you think this may be the cause.
 
What you can do to treat a UTI:
 
Antibiotics: Just know that when you use an antibiotic that you increase your risk of getting a yeast infection. Many bacteria that cause a UTI are antibiotic-resistant because people overuse antibiotics.  Slow down on the antibiotic use peeps.  
 
Herbs: If you occasionally get UTIs you can use herbs. If you frequently get a UTI, you can use herbs while figuring out the root cause of the infection. Remember, treat the cause, not the symptoms.  In most cases, I choose herbs first for my family and in 2017 alone, all of our minor health issues were taken care of with herbs and other natural remedies.  
 
And fellas, it is rare to get a UTI if you are under 30. Go to your doc if you do. Don’t wait. Just do it. If you are over 50, go to the doc and get your prostate checked.
For anyone experiencing fever, nausea and lower back pain, head to the doc immediately.
 
I have developed an herbal tea blend for UTI support. It is listed in the apothecary. If you want to get to the root cause of your frequent UTIs, sign up for a nutrition consultation. If you need a protocol to get rid of a current infection, sign up for an herbal consultation!  You can do all three of these through the apothecary. 
I hope this helps.  If you have any questions, list them in the comments and I will answer!
