I am pregnant and was looking for a natural solution to get rid pf the UTI I felt starting, no way I was going to get antibiotics! My husband stumbled upon this, and after research as to whether it was safe while pregnant (it is!) he went out and bought some from the store (much cheaper on Amazon by the way!). I took it about 7x a day for 3 days, then 3-5x for a few days after (along with hydrating ridiculously well and taking a cranberry capsule). The first two days I was still in a lot of pain, and didn’t notice any relief. Then on the third day I woke up feeling fine. Literally! I had no pain at all (only slight if I didn’t head to the bathroom right away) and felt completely normal. And I have been fine ever since, with no recurring symptoms at all! I am so thankful we found this!
At the same time, we were staying at my mom’s house while our apartment had some major (MAJOR!) plumbing work done. My sister and her son are temporarily living there, and lucky for us, they were sick with a nasty cold. Not only did I not want to get sick because I’m pregnant, but I had NO interest in my kids (3 and 1) catching it too! Ugh! I gave my 3 year old 1/2 dose 2-3 times a day and my 1 year old 1 dropper full 2-3 times a day (along with my husband taking the adult dose 2-3x a day) and none of us got sick. Not even a sniffle! And we were there with them for 5 full days, in a cramped little house, and they both even stayed home sick two of those days!
On top of that, a few weeks later I noticed I had a sore in my nose. It lasted for a good three weeks (on and off) and I couldn’t take it anymore. I started putting a drop or two on my finger and dabbing it on the sore at least 7x a day (usually after I blew my nose). I didn’t notice any relief the entire day, and was skeptical it was even doing anything, then I woke up the next morning and my nose was back to normal. No pain whatsoever. After THREE weeks of pain! It did come back again a couple weeks later when I was stressed, and I did the same thing with the same results. No relief first day, completely fine the second.
