Why is it that UTI’s (urinary tract infections) ALWAYS occur overnight, or on the weekend when you cannot get to your primary care doctor for quick help?! Its always at the worst time and the pain and discomfort require immediate attention. If you have ever had one, you know what I am talking about! Its unbearable pain. I was tired and fed up of dealing with these reoccurring UTI infections and came across a way to overcome UTI’s at home, with no help from a Doctor. No appointment needed and no antibiotics that take FOREVER to start working. There is a new brand Uqora that was brought to my attention, and it sounded too good to not try out. I mean what do I have to lose?! I had to reach out to them to get some samples and share the results with this audience of moms. Read below to learn more about UTI’s, their root causes and how you can overcome them at home.
My last UTI was when I was 3 months pregnant with my first child and I was determined at that time to never experience that pain again. I would prefer going through labor and delivery over having that horrible burning sensation from a UTI. Agreed?! just me? Well, I think we can all agree that the UTI pain is memorable, and one we want to avoid at all costs. I want to make sure we all understand what a UTI is, what causes it, and how to treat and prevent them from occurring in the first place. Keep reading to find out more!
What is a UTI?
The name is pretty descriptive, but a urinary tract infection is an infection that can impact your bladder, kidneys and urethra. Causing symptoms like a burning sensation when you pee, lower abdominal pain and much more. Read more about them from the Mayo Clinic.
What causes a UTI?
From my understanding, (I am not a doctor!) it can be caused by an overgrowth of bad bacteria in your gut or even your microbiome of your vaginal canal. For this reason, its critical to keep that all imbalance. That is why this product from Uqora is so helpful. It helps balance that bacteria back to having more good than bad, so that you can prevent and heal from these infections.

How can I treat a UTI at home and avoid medication?
First of all, before you ever try a product like this, ALWAYS consult your doctor. I got approval from my Doctor before beginning this regimen. Now, let me tell you, the first time I heard about this company I was basically an investor (not really) without trying the product. The fact that someone invented a way to treat this condition at home…is brilliant. I was so excited to try this because not only have I suffered from a UTI on occasion, I know numerous people who do, including some family members.
Uqora is a newer company but it was backed by science and created alongside some physicians so I was onboard with trying it out. They made it so simple and cheap! Its one of those things you want to keep on hand in case you develop a UTI so that you don’t have to wait for it to be shipped to you. Hopefully one day it will be over the counter in a pharmacy but until then, stock up!
Okay, lets walk through how it works. If you buy their full package you will see three products:
- Target – this flushes your urinary tract to help keep is clear
- Promote – cleanse out biofilms and strengthen the bladder wall
- Control – helps balance your vaginal microbiome (which could be the cause of your reoccurring UTI’s)
These three things go hand in hand and I highly recommend getting them all, as they work in harmony together for the best results. You follow their simple steps on flushing your urinary tract and the cleansing out the biofilms and lastly balancing back out your microbiome. So simple! The packaging was straight forward and so were all the instructions.
What are natural ways to avoid ever getting one in the first place?
If you are like me, you want to prevent these from occurring, as mentioned above that is always my goal. So, what are some natural ways to avoid ever getting these again? I would suggest balancing your microbiome of your vagina and also your gut (again, personal opinion, always ask your Doctor).
How do you balance them back out? With food. Making sure your diet consists of prebiotics, and probiotics which can include consuming all sorts of fibers (veggies), legumes, nuts and seeds, and also avoiding things like sugar, refined grains and inflammatory oils. It can take time to baalnce your microbiome and I encourage you to meet with your Doctor to see the best course of action based on your own health history and genetics. They can make a personalized plan for preventing this infection from occurring in the future.
In summary, I highly recommend this product for getting rid of a urinary tract infection and also having a prevention method buy using their biofilm cleanse and microbiome balance that they offer.
