This book has been SO very helpful to me. There is an action plan that explains how to minimize UTIs when symptoms first start appearing. The UTIs that I suffer from are serious and bloody and extremely painful. When I first tried the 'action plan' I really didn't think it would work. It did. It was like magic. Every time I get an infection now I reach for this book and follow the plan. It really minimizes pain and speeds up my recovery. I recommend this book to anyone who suffers from UTIs.
