After a few months of constant attacks of cystitis, and trying so many products (and of course countless visits to doctors office) I am finally cystitis free, all thanks to this book! I am from middle eastern background who has also lived in the UK, so I have tried literally every herbal and pharmaceutical product available from different countries, I tried Uricol (a pharmaceutical product for cystitis and preventing cystitis in the East) some Persian herbal remedies, homoeopathic products, of course cranberry tablets, D-mannose, everything that was in the market. OF COURSE I also went on courses of antibiotics but nothing stopped my cystitis from coming back. Life was so miserable for the past few months.
Here is why like thousands of other women, I wasn't getting cured: I was not PREVENTING cystitis, in fact I didn't know it was possible, doctors never told me about it, curing the problem with antibiotics will only just weaken you immune system and lead to thrush and other issues, if you don't PREVENT the problem from happening, you will get cystitis like I did.
I wanted to write this review so that other people can also benefit from this book like I did, you really don't have to suffer from cystitis and the prevention is actually easy!
This book contains information about the only possible ways you can fight cystitis, whether its bacterial or non-bacterial. Stop the countless visits to hospitals because they will NOT tell you how to cure and prevent cystitis, they will just give you more medicine. Do yourselves a favour and READ THIS BOOK.
Angela introduces a bottle washing technique in her book which will prevent cystitis from occurring. She introduces critical hygiene principles and simple advices (who thought the cure for cystitis was actually SO SIMPLE?). Her bottle washing technique literally takes 1-2 minutes, and costs NOTHING. Your healing literally starts at your own house!. I feel so much happier and cleaner after following her simple hygiene techniques and after following it, my cystitis attacks have GONE! This is because by following the simple bottle washing methods and other advice, I HAVE PREVENTED cystitis at no cost and so can you!
The book starts with how to deal with an already existing attack, and then goes on to explain the preventive methods as well as what could be causing your attacks and much more information. It is an eye opening book on the subject and helps you realise the CORE causes of your problems which is really helpful in preventing the problems from happening.
Angela Kilmartin herself is an ex-cystitis sufferer, she has cured and prevented her own cystitis and then carried out much research for years and helped thousands of patients, she really knows what she is talking about and knows the subject so well. Both her experience, methods and knowledge of the area make her such a valuable asset to us women today, please take advantage of the available information out there and really HELP YOURSELF out of this miserable disease. Her techniques cost nothing and regardless of where you are in the world, YOU CAN FIGHT AND PREVENT CYSTITIS! Her book also contains information for children and men as well.
I don't only urge cystitis victims to read this book, but also doctors and nurses should read this book and save their patients from countless visits!. How on earth didn't they think/know about such simple preventive methods is beyond me.This information needs to be widely available and doctors really need to help their patients understand how to prevent this problem, rather than tell them to take more antibiotics or more cranberry juice (which has so much sugar and feeds thrush).
