Hi everyone,
I had a horrible shock yesterday, I am being treated by a medical herbalist who said she wanted me to drink only evian water. So yesterday I bought a few bottles and started working my way through a litre bottle throughout the day, by the evening my bladder was really sore, esp the urethra. I have read that some people react because of the sulphates and other mineral compositions. I think evian is a no no for me. There was nothing I eaten that could have caused any issues as far as I am aware. I just ate meat, veg, fruit and some rice cakes with cheese. I am normally fine with all of these foods so I came to the conclusion that it mustve been the change of water.
