Purchase D-Mannose 500mg capsules
Take three 500mg caps once a day. This is for prevention and I am going to do this for as long as I live, even when I don't have one!
For an actual UTI:
As SOON as I feel even the slightest twinge of a UTI coming on, I begin taking three 500mg tabs with no more than 4 ounces of water...let that settle in your system for 45 minutes to an hour. Then, after that time has passed, start guzzling cool (NOT freezing cold) water like it's going out of style. I'm talking 32-40 ounces as quickly as you can (within an hour for sure). The importance of the DOSE with only a little water is that it allows the D-Mannose to really settle into your system without too much other water in your bladder. The D-Mannose adheres to the bacteria in your bladder/urinary tract & keeps them from sticking to your bladder wall. Then once the bacteria is "grabbed" by the D-Mannose, you begin drinking like crazy & hopefully begin emptying your bladder & ridding your body of all the junk. Repeat this every 2-3 hours until you don't feel any symptoms anymore. Once you feel you are back to normal, go back to the prevention method & hopefully you will never get one again! I'm no Dr, but from all my research, it appears that D-Mannose is totally safe to take for a long period of time, so there should be no concern of any crazy side effects like with antibiotics. I will mention that it might make you have to poop more than usual but that's nothing compared to the side effects of antibiotics!
I would much rather be taking a natural simple sugar every day for the rest of my life than an antibiotic multiple times a year for the rest of my life...not to mention living in fear of getting a UTI every time I have sex with my husband.
I hope this review brings some relief & help to someone!
This is what I do to keep UTI's away and it works.
