Urinary Track Infections

by J.

January 2006

I would like to offer a remedy.

I suffer from many urinary tract infections related to abnormalities from birth. These infections have been getting worse over the years and the last two were extremely painful. Within 2 hours of the first symptoms I could barely walk. Over the last 18 months, I began developing allergies to the antibiotics. So, on the last infection I decided to try herbs and was astounded at the results. No more antibiotics for me.

I took 1 tsp of raw apple cider vinegar every 15 minutes, 2 homemade garlic pills every 6 hours, 2 homemade Cayenne pepper pills every hour, a dropper full of Immune Booster every 8 hours and the infection was gone faster than the antibiotic usually relieves it. Since antibiotics usually take 5-10 days, I decided to follow up the above regimen w/ 1tsp of apple cider vinegar, 2 garlic pills, 2 cayenne pills and Immune Booster 3-4 times a day for a week.

That was October 1st and I haven't had a problem. No re-occurrence, no side effects.

Thank you for your time, your wonderful articles, your wonderful store, and your wonderful herbs.

Gratefully yours,
~J.

Did You Know?

Daily sprinkling a little Cayenne powder on the toothpaste on your toothbrush can work miracles in fighting and preventing gum disease. That's right! It will also help deal with other oral ailments that plague many folks these days. After reading about this, we just had to try it. There is a warm sensation in your mouth as you brush your teeth, but it soon disappears after rinsing. As always, whenever using Cayenne powder, you should start with very small amounts to allow the body some time to build up a tolerance. The first few times we used it, we sprinkled so little of the powder on the toothpaste that we didn't feel anything. As the days progressed, we increased the amounts slightly until we felt it was warm enough. After using it for a little while, the nice feeling in your mouth is very satisfying. Be warned, however, that you do not want to overdo this one, so start small.
