The struggle

In the last couple of years I have been having problems with Urinary tract infections. Now this is something a lot of women suffer from but don't want to talk about because the first thing people think is that after sex they didn't clean properly. It is the first question from anyone who finds out you are suffering! "Well, did you go to the bathroom after" It's an honest question and for the most part this information could help a lot of people. For those of us who suffer even after taking care of business I offer you a bit of information on UTI's.

So you have done everything you can to cure yourself and these things keep popping up. Let's try one more thing before you give up and go crazy. How much sugar are you eating and are you getting them right after your period? After tracking mine for a while I realized that it was always happening right after my period. When I am on my period i don't know about you but I can finish off every sugary item in the house. When I was forced to change my diet sugar went out the window and all of a sudden my UTI issues stopped dead in their tracks. When I had a relapse of sugar because..well...i was feeling great the UTI popped up again. I connected it to sugar real quick and haven't had a problem sense.

Now I am not asking you to go crazy but I will say i no longer drink soda or coffee. I stopped eating candy and only really have sugar if I bake. Getting some sugar isn't bad for you it's when we over dose on it that it becomes a problem. So lets look at this from a nutritional point of view. Every person is allotted 25 grams of sugar a day. If you drink one soda you are already over your allotment for the day! Let me start by also saying that you can go crazy with natural sugars that come from fruit and it will not hurt a thing. Please over dose on sugar from fruit and see what it does for your body.

Another thing you need to realize is that bacteria feeds on sugar and the more you eat the more problems you will end up having as far as the UTI's go. The last thing you want to do is feed the problem so step away from the candy bowl and eat a smoothie. My favorite?

2 frozen ripe bananas, 1/4 cup blueberries, 1 cup of almond milk, 1 tsp vanilla, a dash of cinnamon and blend.

This got me over all of those wonderful sugar cravings which were pretty bad for a month but once I got past them I feel so much better and I haven't had any UTI problems. So here's the big question. Why wont your doctor tell you this? Well for one, I honestly don't think most doctors have put this together. I also think that it is better for them to prescribe you antibiotics than to tell you to stop eating something that is driving you to the doctor and paying their bills. Why would they give you your health instead of letting you come in time over time over time again. They are in the business of prescribing pills. This is how they make their money. If we are healthy we aren't going to the doctor.

Take your health into your own hands. If all you have to do is cut back on something, isn't it worth it? It's time to stop going to the doctor and time to start being healthy and that means eating healthy. If you are sick all of the time you can change your diet to fix the majority of your problems.
