I am feeling rotten this week; I have a urinary tract infection. Sorry if this is “tmi” but it does relate to the topic of my diet. Every time in the past 5 years that I have decided to eat healthier, lose weight, diet, etc., I have developed a uti about 2 weeks into it. I don’t know why it happens, probably something to do with chemistry, hormones, dehydration, ph balance, acidity, whatever. When I began this new way of eating a few weeks ago, I was positive it wouldn’t happen this time. After all, this was a lot more than just cutting calories. This was getting my system balanced, lowering acidity and raising alkaline. But 2 days ago . . . here we go again. I’m convinced that there is a more healthy natural way to get rid of my uti and heal my body than with antibiotics, but I’m just too new to all this and feeling too awful to think about it right now. Like they say, the best offense is a good defense.
