Not long ago, a friend of ours related an experience that she had and an unusual solution to a problem she was having.
For years, she had suffered from recurrent bladder infections. Each time, treatment with antibiotics cleared the infection, but within a few weeks or months the infection would recur.
Nothing she did resolved the problem, not even the usual remedies such as cranberry juice, higher doses of vitamin C, and probiotics. She was frustrated, to say the least.
Fortunately, she went to see an integrative physician trained in women’s hormonal problems.
This doctor tested her and found that estrogen levels were low despite the fact that she was on a hormone replacement vaginal cream.
The doctor increased her hormone dose, bringing it up to normal. After that, my friend had no further problems.
It has been more than two years since her last bladder infection.
Sometimes the solution to a problem does not come from the usual methods.
Had my friend continued to see her regular doctor instead of the integrative physician, I have no doubt that she would still be suffering from an aggravating and harmful problem.
