Have you ever had a bladder infection? You may have felt confined to your home since every two minutes you had to rush to the bathroom. You're too embarrassed to bring up to your doctor that you experience an overwhelming constant urge to excuse yourself to the toilet.
A bladder infection, also known as cystitis, is a bacterial infection in the bladder. More than likely if you do bring up this issue to your doctor, he will prescribe you an antibiotic.
What causes bladder infections?
Most bladder infections are caused by the E-coli that lives in your gut. Typically, when your body has an infection present, it tries to wash it out on its own. Unfortunately, this doesn't always work for a bladder infection.
What is a natural way to cure your bladder infection?
The best way to treat a bladder infection is mannose, a complex sugar that is related to glucose and fructose. Taking mannose helps prevent certain kinds of bacteria from sticking to the walls of your urinary tract.
