URINARY TRACT INFECTIONS:
At age fifty seven, a pattern of Urinary Tract Infections began for me. I was constantly on antibiotics. My family doctor never suggested a visit to a specialist.
By now my imagination was working overtime. I had heard all the horror stories from friends and relatives.
Urinary Tract Infections can be extremely dangerous if not treated properly.
I made an appointment with a wonderful woman Urologist. She put me instantly at ease. After an extensive examination, she relieved my anxiety. No surgery was required, I was happy to hear.
The doctor explained to me that Urinary Tract Infections were common in women who are menopausal. The reasons are:
(a) Bad bacteria had gotten trapped in the stomach and colon.
(b) Dry vaginas are common in women. Sex could be painful.
MY DOCTOR GAVE ME THIS ADVICE:
***" Use Natural Remedies. "*** Use Natural Remedies.
(1) Drink at least one 8 oz. glass of Cranberry Juice daily.
(2) Eat one 8 oz. container of yogurt with live cultures daily.
(3) Take vitamin C daily 500-1000 mgs.
(4) Use lubrication for the vagina when needed.
(5) Drink plenty of water daily.
(6) When you go to the bathroom wipe from the front to the back.
You do not need to experience hot flashes, cold sweats, or mood swings to know you are deep in menopause. Every woman should visit a Urologist. Urinary Tract infections can be complicated and serious. I was lucky my Urinary Tract Infections are cured. I hope for good. I have made the items listed above a part of my daily regiment. I was afraid not to.
