I have been using coconut oil and water for a while both internally and topically. There are dangers to using coconut too much too fast. NEVER take more than 1 tablespoon a day if you have not been taking it, 3 tbsp 3x a day can send you to the hospital! It cleanse out your system fast and everything comes out in dangerous time for a hospital amount. 1 tbsp of oil a day in your coffee or straight for a week or two upgrade to 2 tbsp the next two weeks then to 3. Never go over 3. If you drink water it is the same. I went off of it for a month then had 8oz of coconut water and was in the bathroom 2 days sick. Also juniper berries in a tea (about 8 berries crushed if dried) soaked 5 minutes drink for 5 days, no longer as it can destroy liver function. It tastes like wood, but I personally have seen it work on a severe patient with 2 strains of UTI bacteria that required 2 different antibiotics (there are many strains not all are killed by the same med) and were at extremely high levels with no luck in curing for a year. Used the junipers and wow, nearly gone a week later. This was done with monitoring and tests by the lab and a urologist so there is sound proof, not just my word. I was also a nurse. Just really look into using a natural cure, they can work a miracle but if used wrong can cause other problems.

This morning I was awoken with the worst burning feeling in a long time and needed relief right away. It was 3am so the doctor’s office wasn’t open. I dug through my sister's medicine cabinet (I was staying at her house thank god) and found Lady Soma Cranberry Tablets. I highly recommend this product in everybody’s medicine cabinet. The product worked within 20 minutes and I was able to go back to sleep!

Due to a series of urinary infections, my MD recommended the Lady Soma Cranberry Concentrate Supplement. It was amazing. This product in particular has the highest concentration in the market. Maybe it is a coincidence, but problems have started to resolve themselves.
