Natural Solutions: UTI, Bladder Pain & Vaginal Infections

In my October 2013 newsletter I discuss effective ‘natural’ solutions for treating urinary tract infections (UTIs), bladder pain and vaginal infections. Researchers are looking at a bacterial based vaccine and also a natural sugar to treat the distressing symptoms of burning urinary pain and frequency. Others have developed a probiotic solution for vaginal infections.

For many women, repeated antibiotics have become the go-to treatment for recurrent UTIs. Promoting effective alternatives to antibiotics will help avoid the dangers of repeated antibiotic use. In his book Beyond Antibiotics, Michael Schmidt discusses a range of risk factors.
