Part 2: Natural Alternatives to Antibiotics for UTIs
Frustrated by the lack of success with antibiotics, women and men with recurring UTIs started to look for solutions on their own.
What they encountered was a confusing variety of supplements and herbs lining the shelves of drugstores, health food stores and the Amazon website, all claiming to help with UTIs.
Some products for pain, others for””cleansing” and still others for “urinary health”. Supplements such as cranberry, Hibiscus, Uva Ursi, D-Mannose, Aloe, Green Tea, Bearberry Leaf, Marshmallow Root and Goldenrod. Sold by an endless number of unknown brands offering different formulas and strengths.
Fact – You Need To Find a Brand You Can Trust
The reality is that unless a doctor, pharmacist or friend has recommended a product or company to you, you may need to do a little homework.
If you’re a “do it yourselfer”, you may want to do all of the reading about how these products work and look into the companies that make them.
But if you need to make a quick decision and know that you are buying products that will work and are safe, you may want to look for a company that specializes in UTIs and has medical professionals, such as pharmacists, on staff to answer your questions.
The most important thing is to feel that they are committed to helping you until you get rid of your UTI once and for all.
The FDA does not approve natural supplements before they are marketed, so its also important to know that their products are manufactured in FDA-certified facilities and tested by reputable third-party labs for safety and quality.
