School Teacher, age 28, New York City
“I had become used to taking antibiotics for UTIs five-six times a year I started 2 SuperMannan pills every 20-30 minutes; I couldn’t believe it. Within an hour of taking my first pill, I could already feel my symptoms decreasing. Now, I am able to take 2 pills to completely stop symptoms, whereas years ago, I was taking up to 14 pills. I know that I can count on SuperMannan if my symptoms emerge.”
Since my early 20s, I’d been suffering from UTIs, which were successfully treated by antibiotics prescribed by my primary care physician. My UTIs were extremely painful with severe burning and pain during urination as well as blood in my urine. My doctor prescribed antibiotics with each new infection- usually Bactrin or Cipro. Although the antibiotics relieved my symptoms after each infection, they did nothing to prevent my symptoms from occurring again in a month or so. I became used to taking antibiotics for UTIs five-six times a year and worried about the effects this was having on my health. Even worse, my frequent UTIs interfered with my life. If I wasn’t able to contact my doctor by phone or go in person to the office, I would sometimes have to go to the emergency room to get treated for my symptoms. If an attack occurred while I was away on vacation or at a work conference, my situation was even worse. I am a middle school English teacher, and I once got a UTI on the first day of school. Needless to say, I worried constantly about when and what might bring on another attack.
During this time, I tried anything I heard about that might help such as cranberry pills and drinks and D-Mannose. Although these helped to some degree, they didn’t provide relief if I had another UTI attack. I therefore resigned to continuing to take antibiotics if/when I needed to.
In December 2006, I had the opportunity to take SuperMannan pills when I had a UTI attack. I had a UTI attack in the late evening after going out to eat with a friend. I took two SuperMannan pills immediately, and then took 2 SuperMannan pills every 20-30 minutes. I couldn’t believe it. Within an hour of taking my first pill, I could already feel my symptoms decreasing. It was the first time in years that I hadn’t had to take antibiotics to cure my UTI. I felt much better and went to sleep. I took some more SuperMannan pills the next day, even though I had no UTI symptoms. I took 14 pills over two days. When I saw my physician and told her that I had taken SuperMannan for my UTI and it had worked, she said that it was fine if I continued taking them if/when I had UTI symptoms.
I requested more SuperMannan pills, but I did not take any more pills until my next UTI outbreak in January 2007. When I had an acute UTI attack, I took 2 SuperMannan pills immediately. I then took 2 SuperMannan pills every 20-30 mins over the next two hours (took 10 SuperMannan pills over 2 hours). Again, my symptoms were totally gone and this time, I had been able to take fewer pills than my attack a month ago.
Since these two acute UTI episodes, I have taken two SuperMannan pills whenever I feel UTI symptoms coming on. I have taken a few of the pills when I feel UTI symptoms beginning, and I’ve had relief of symptoms and no acute UTI attacks. The UTI symptoms seem to occur when I am experiencing stress at work, or when traveling. Although there is no regular pattern, the mild episodes occur only 3 or 4 times per year now that I am taking SuperMannan, and I am fine after taking one or two SuperMannan pills. I’ve also been able to drastically reduce the number of pills I need to take to cure my symptoms. Now I am able to take 2 pills to completely stop symptoms, whereas years ago, I was taking up to 14 pills.
I feel incredibly lucky to have found SuperMannan when I did. I’m so pleased that I need fewer pills when I feel symptoms coming on compared to how many pills I used to take a few years ago. Having a natural treatment for my UTI has truly changed my life because now I no longer have to worry about getting a painful attack and rushing to get some antibiotics, or worse, worry about the long term damage they are doing to my body. I know that I can count on SuperMannan if my symptoms emerge.
