I started freaking out recently while eating 80/10/10 as much as possible.
Because I got a uti (urinary tract infection). Every possible worrisome thought entered my mind…
“It’s my diet,”
“I’ll have to give in and go get antibiotics, even though I never wanted to go that route again!”
I looked online for natural remedies and comfort for what was happening. At first, I found a few recommendations for Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar, so I followed those prescriptions. The urgent symptoms ended after a bath in the stuff (not so bad) and starting to drink the vinegar with water (ick).
I was very relieved.
However, the minor symptoms were still lingering… on… and off. Shopping was really difficult, because my mind was always on ‘where is the nearest bathroom?’
So, I was praying… a LOT! “Which way should I go Lord?”
I kept hearing, “Rest, and trust.” I felt like it just was going to take time to flush the real issue out.
So I started drinking more cranberry juice, and more and more!!!
A week later, still not completely gone, I joined the Banana Girl Diet Challenge (A Banana Boy one exists as well, fyi). And there I found more help. People there confirmed for me that it’s going to take a little longer than just slapping some antibiotics at it to “heal” it quickly. I felt comforted again, that it’s not going to last, it just has to heal naturally.
I heard that it’s from adrenal fatigue and I need lots of rest and water, and continue on the fruits, making sure to get all my calories in. So that’s where I’m at now. I feel like the worst of the battle is over, and I’m on the mend.
It’s been a roller coaster week, but I’m so thankful for the new friends at the Banana Girl Diet Challenge. Thank you for your help and comfort!
