Natural Treatments for Urinary Tract Infections

Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are a fairly common occurrence and a situation we tackle on nearly a daily basis at our wellness center.

It is estimated that UTIs account for nearly 8.3 million visits to the doctor’s office.

While women get UTIs more frequently, men can also be affected.

Taking certain supplements at the onset can lessen the effect of the UTI and speed recovery.

N-Acetyl Cysteine and Recurrent Pregnancy Loss

Scientists have believed that free radical stress may play a role in recurrent pregnancy loss.

Scientists studied the effect of an antioxidant called N-acetyl-cysteine (NAC) on the rate of birth success in women with recurrent pregnancy loss

The rate of living pregnancy increased significantly as did take home baby rates after supplementation with N-Acetylcysteine

The recommended dose of NAC is 500-600 mg per day

We recommend Cysteplus by Thorne Research because they have the most aggressive quality assurances of any professional supplement company

Post Menopausal Women Who Lose Weight May Also Lose Bone

Menopausal women who successfully lose weight also seemed to lose bone density in the process

The study doesn’t prove that losing weight causes bone loss, only that eating a low-fat diet along with cardio could lead to lower density.

To lose weight healthily, cut carbs, increase protein, eat healthy fats, tons of vegetable based fiber and do resistance training in place of excessive cardiovascular activity
