Thankfully There Are New, Natural Treatments That Are Helping Them
Antibiotics Are No Longer A Viable Treatment
Many of these older women cannot take antibiotics for a variety of reasons. Some say they don’t work because their infection keeps coming back, which means that they are “antibiotic-resistant”. Others say that they are allergic to them. And most say that the side effects, such as digestive upsets, are unbearable.
A few years ago doctors were prescribing long-term antibiotic treatments to help stave off future infections, but the CDC has stopped that practice, saying that this causes more harm than good.
So they continue to have to live with the threat of a serious infection and hospitalization.
New Natural Supplements Are Now Available To Stop These Infections
The good news is that scientists have found two natural supplement alternatives that have been clinically proven to protect them against these infections.
D-Mannose powder has been proven to clear the bladder of any active bacteria which may be there, and cranberry capsules coat the bladder lining to protect against any new infections. For more information about why this has helped older women across the US, read our blog entitled “Two Simple Words: Clear and Protect” here.
The optimal treatment plan is to take both the D-Mannose and the cranberry for the first 30 days, then to take just take 1 cranberry capsule a day thereafter to stay UTI-free.
