If you tend to get bladder infections or bladder irritation that makes urinating painful or stinging, there is a very effective natural supplement available. Our experience with many patients is that by taking Cranberry Complex at the first sign of trouble, symptoms can be stopped right away. Many women are prescribed antibiotics for bladder infections, which are often recurrent, when a proactive approach using herbs would work–possibly better– without the side effects.
Cranberry Complex is available from one of our supplement companies, Standard Process/MediHerb. While there are many cranberry/D-mannose supplements available in stores and online, this formulation has three herbs in addition to the cranberry: crataeva, buchu, and uva ursi. This is one of those supplements that needs to be in your medicine cabinet for prevention of these problems. We keep it in stock here at our clinic because it is that effective. A nutrition consult for help with a supportive diet and other supplements may be a good idea also.
