... resistant to most antibiotics now and then I discovered that taking 6000 - 8000 mg if vitamin C with rosehips daily has cleaned out my urinary tract within a few days to the point of having had a white discharge that is now gone and everything feels healthy again the way it use to before I kept getting all these uti's. I heard years ago that drinking lemon juice daily would do this but for me that wasn't enough and the vit. c in large doses is doing it. I was praying for a natural solution and sofar have not had another uti. I have been on a 4000 mg a day maintenance dose after the intial 1 week high dose. It can cause diarrhia but one can take something for that untill you get to a lower dose

My Dr. told me to try the vitamin C but it did exactly what the antibiotics do to me. (diarrhia) and the cranberry pills do the same thing. I feel like anything that can help me, just causes another problem. I have been drinking nothing but water, and doing everything eles they say to prevent them. But it has been a very bad 2 1/2 years of monthly UTI's.

I have tried the vitamin C but not the other things the only other things that I have tried is the Urologist told me to buy Northland Cranberry Juice and to drink about 8 ounces a day, she says that it is pure Cranberry Juice and also says that's another reason that it is more expensive. I use to have the UTI's so bad that I had to be hospitalized and have injectable/Intravenous antibiotics and my Colony counts were at least 100,000 they say that is pretty signifigant. I hope that you continue to do well I think I will add what you are using I do not want these to ever return like they once were. I wish you the very best

Uti... thanks for the info. I will keep it n my quiver.
Just curious... how are u exactly "resistant" to most antibiotics? Just curious because there r really good ones out there for utis... depending on what bacteria is seen on analysis... like Macrodantin, Bactrim, levaquin(strong).
But keeping a healthy bladder environment is, of course, the best way to prevent. Drink tons of Water, drinking things that maintain a proper acidic pH and good bathroom technique (wiping front to back)--- sorry... TMI?? and another thing that is definitely TMI!! are all good ways of prevention... I know u want to b as natural as u can and it seems as though the rose hips w/ C is working... good info. Anyway... that is my two cents... stay well...

I just joined this group... I have had UTI's for about 1 year and 3 months, I have tried all the different anibiotics that first my OBGYN , later my Primay Care, and now my Urologist has perscribed, and my UTI's keep coming back. I try anything that anyone tells me to try. I have never heard of Vitamin C! Thanks for the advice, I will run out to the Vitamin Store and buy some. Is there a certain brand that you recommend?

After many years of UTI's, my doctor recommended a simple solution that has stopped all the infections permanently. Hygiene is vital to clearing up these types of infections. I am disabled and showering is a bit of a chore but it has cleared up all the yeast and other bacterial infections which plagued me for so long. Washing with a cloth does help but not as we'll as a warm, soapy shower every day. I also use an over the counter 2% yeast ointment around the skin folds where my legs attach to my body. Like magic, the UTIs are gone. Good luck to all.
