Let’s get real.
There’s really absolutely NOTHING WORSE than a dreaded UTI.
Don’t believe me? Ok, I’ll set the scene for you…
Literally in New York City Airport DYING, so UNCOMFORTABLE from a UTI. So, SO uncomfortable in fact, that I’m scrambling ( you can’t explain one unless you’ve had one! ). Basically I’m asking people around me for Uristat. Google it, not fun. Michael has no clue what to do…HA! He’s uncomfortable in his own way.
So ya, this situation SUCKS.
To further set the scene, I’m running around to every magazine/beverage shop in the airport, asking them from some type medicine. No one has anything for me. Brutal. The women at each counter look at me with such pity because THEY GET IT.
I’m basically helpless…kill me? You get it if you’ve been there – now imagine knowing you have a 6 hour flight in front of you with nothing to relieve the uncomfortableness.
It feels like you have to pee, every second, of every day.
I’ve gotten a UTI aka URINARY TRACT INFECTION, many, MANY times. So many in fact, that I’ve lost count.
The second I feel one coming on, I’m immediately on the phone with a random doctor who’s prescribing Cipro ( YUCK, SHOOT ME ) or some random antibiotic with the word ‘Micro?’
But I kind of figured out my cure. Wanna know how I prevent UTIs?
COCONUT OIL & SHOWERS.
We’ve all heard this one: shower before & after sex.
Shower before. Shower after. Especially after if you can’t before. ALSO! Peeing after sex makes all the difference.
Coconut oil is anti-bacterial!! Bacteria causes UTIs. No bacteria – no UTI.
( You know what I never want to hear again? Cranberry-anything. I’ve tried it all, it doesn’t work for me. This has been my experience at least. I need a preventative measure. Since I’ve figured out a way to prevent them, life has been easier. LOL. If cranberry works for you, which I’ve heard it helps a lot of people, stick with it! ).
Other research states: “urinary tract infections present with urgency of urination, frequency, burning, pain and even bleeding. The associated symptoms are fever, chills, nausea or vomiting etc. UTIs should be taken seriously, because if not treated it may go to kidney infection.
Doctors prescribe antibiotics for this condition and most of the cases of UTI will be cured. But sometimes it is resistant to bacteria and it comes back after treatment. Good news is that there are some home remedies for UTI.
Using natural home remedies you can cure urinary tract infection. Coconut is a nutritious food which is rich in minerals and vitamins. You need coconut oil and coconut water to cure UTI. Coconut oil has antibacterial, anti-fungal and antiviral properties. Coconut oil kills the bad bacteria, but does not kill the good bacteria. Coconut water is able to cure urinary tract infections and it can also dissolve kidney stones. Coconut water has a very soothing healing property that is very good for curing UTI. You need to take 3 tablespoons of coconut oil three times a day. Drinking coconut water along with it throughout the day will make it faster healing.
Coconut possesses various health benefits due to the nutritional content it has.Coconut oil is the one which makes it a remarkable healthy food and medicine. It has medium chain fatty acids which are beneficial for human health.”
Apparently they’re also good for you / your UTI symptoms while you have one? I haven’t had one yet since using coconut oil so I’ll let you know if the whole 3 tablespoons a day thing works.
SO COCONUT EVERYTHING IS KEY.
Does anyone else get UTIs? I swear this coconut EVERYTHING is the trick that has saved my life. I like to eat it daily & use it as lube.
There’s really nothing worse than being stranded somewhere with a horrific UTI. NOTHING WORSE. If you’ve been there, I feel for you. Please try these tricks for some RELIEF if you’re used to frequent UTIs.
Anyway, this is what’s worked for me!! Happy Wednesday guys!
+ always consult a doctor if the UTI is not going away after a few days. I’ve heard a lot of horror stories about kidney infections from an untreated UTI.
