As a chronic sufferer of UTIs since the age of six through fifty, I can say I've been on every antiobiotic and sulfa drug around. A year ago I discovered taking a high dose of vitamin C, 2.5 grams in the morning and at night, not only gets rid of an infection, but keeps them from coming back. If you're willing to try it, purchase some ascorbic acid powder online or at your local health store, then mix a teaspoon or more into a glass of water and drink it down. Its tart, but you'll get used to it. You should start feeling better soon, within 24 hours. Within 48 hours, the pain from the infection will be almost gone. If not, increase the dose by another teaspoon. Vitamin C will not build up in your body or become toxic. What your body doesn't use, it excretes through the, oh guess what, urine! Keep drinking the "C" every day. Simple remedy that works for me, and I hope it works for you too.
