I had a horrible bladder infection... had it for almost 2 weeks when it became unbearable. My mom's naturopath had prescribed her a d-mannose nutraceutical (at $50 a pop!). She mentioned that it helped her a lot, so I went to Sprouts market and found D-Mannose with CranActin, trying to avoid a doctor visit (no health insurance). I took the 1,000 mg dose (opened the capsules and mixed them in water).
Next morning I went to work feeling like a person again. The pain came back a little in the afternoon, so I doubled my dose to 2,000 mg a day. It is day 2 and I am hoping that tomorrow is an all-around good day without the UTI. This stuff is amazing!
