A urinary tract infection (UTI) can be very hard to treat because it can be caused by several different things, including Candida and/or a bacteria. It can occur in several places along the tract (kidneys, bladder, ureters and urethra) and can be aggravated by other medical conditions, like diabetes, nerve damage or a toxin overload. This makes it difficult to find the real cause of the problem. I encourage you to start by researching Candida first and see if that makes sense to you. If it does, treat the Candida and your UTI will take care of itself.
If it doesn’t sound like you have Candida, then you would need to treat the infection as a bacterial infection. The treatment for that would be to get some On Guard inside your body. I recommend either 2-3 drops of On Guard in some water or a capsule or the On Guard + capsules. This will strengthen your immune system so it will fight it better. You can also take 3 drops each of basil, cinnamon and oregano in a capsule up to 3 times daily until symptoms subside. Since everyone is so different, if these don’t work, you may need to experiment a little more. Some other oils to try are Purify, lemongrass, cedarwood, cassia, oregano or juniper berry. Please comment below with what has worked or not worked for you. I would love to have lots of different opinions on the subject!
