Hello, I have not posted before, but I have had recurrent utis for 45 years, and for the first ever time, after the sixth uti in 3 months, I tried taking two fresh garlic cloves, crushing then to a pulp putting pulp into a cup with hot water, leave to infuse for 5 minutes, then drink it..Also drank half litre cranberry juice, and followed with plenty water..within one hour, urine showed no leuccocytes, and was clear in colour.  It stayed that way and next day repeated twice, with plenty water...and 5 days later I am still clear.  A miracle!!  The first time ever for me, and I want to share this and hope it helps some of you out there..I always have very severe utis with blood in urine, smelly thick, and very bad back pain..Give it a try it worked for me..good luck

Hello sooteytops

Welcome to our Forum and thank you for posting an alternative that you have found suits you.

Sounds foul to me CHOL[smile][smile] but as we all know with this dreadful dis-ease we will try most things to find a solution, in assisting ourselves.
As we all understand what suits one will not necessarily help someone else, this is what makes diagnosing this dis -ease so difficult and unpredictable.

Pleased it worked for you.

Do have a look around here and also the website, and maybe consider joining COB, as you will have so much access to the Office information.

Regards
Kate

What exactly is the role of cranberry, some say "take it", some say "don't go anywhere near it", etc etc etc.

Hello Lindilou
"What exactly is the role of cranberry"

Here is what the website has to say

http://www.cobfoundation.org/cystitis/bc-faq

and then if you are a member of COB, you could telephone our nutrition service.
Nutrition Service

A telephone help-line is available to members of The Cystitis and Overactive Bladder Foundation. It is an individual way of offering confidential help and support on the subjects of nutrition, diet, detection of trigger foods, plus advice on vitamin, mineral and herbal supplements. It is run by Serena Foster, who has experience with IC sufferers, and available at a cost of £20 per 20 minutes, to include the cost of the call.
If you are a member and interested in this service you can download the nutrition form or send a stamped addressed envelope to us, along with a cheque payment to Serena Foster and we will send you a short Nutritional Assessment form to complete and return. She will then make contact with you by telephone.

Serene Foster MNIMH, MCPP DPhil (Oxon) BSc (Hons), is a qualified and registered Herbal Practitioner and Immunologist who has covered nutritional therapy in her training.

Unfortunately, as we all know , what can help one person can be a nightmare for someone else.Sorry I cannot give you a definitive answer[frown]

Kate
