Linsey is a nurse living in the United States.  Her problems began at the age of 33 after developing a UTI that did not respond to three short-courses of antibiotics.  Given no alternative but to live with severe bladder and urethral pain, her search led to a practitioner in her country who was able to order advanced diagnostic tests and finally treat her infection.  During her healing she discovered she had other systemic infections, including Lyme disease.  Addressing these additional infections was key to her recovery.  Linsey has been symptom-free for the past two years, but says it is more important than ever to remain vigilant and take a holistic approach to her body and her health.  You can read more about Linsey here.

Life changed for this Australian woman when a simple, uncomplicated urinary tract infection (UTI) refused to go away. Relying solely on tests results, doctors were quick to disassociate her symptoms from the initial infection and diagnose her with interstitial cystitis (IC).  Following a post-operative course of antibiotics, Jenna had an unbelievable 14 year hiatus before her dreaded symptoms returned.  Realising doctors knew very little about her condition, she  decided she would find a way to get better.  Her ongoing research highlighted similarities between her 'incurable' condition and other chronic infections.  After plenty of reading and research, she decided to trial a treatment protocol used to target pathogens linked with several other conditions.  This unconventional, self-administered protocol quickly led to relief from her ongoing urinary symptoms.  In little over a year, Jenna was able to stop her treatment completely and remain symptom-free.  You can read more about Jenna's experience here.

Olimpia is a young Italian woman who suffered constant bladder pain for 12 years after initially delaying treatment for an acute UTI.   Frustrated from years of being put through the mill by doctors and specialists who had little to offer, she embarked on a health experiment that radically changed her life and cured her bladder symptoms for good.  Now that she's back living a happy and pain-free life, Olimpia established an online forum where she helps others who are following similar health regimens to heal their chronic bladder symptoms.

Julie is an Australian woman whose first ever UTI did not fully respond to treatment and turned into a misdiagnosis of interstitial cystitis (IC).   Feeling she still had the infection, and becoming increasingly depressed that her UTI tests kept coming back negative despite her ongoing UTI symptoms, she decided to take matters into her own hands.  Julie began researching and came across a molecular DNA-based UTI test that identified the bacteria that her local MSU cultures were unable to find.  With further research, she decided to tackle her infection through a combination of natural anti-microbials, a nutrient dense plant-based diet, fasting and lifestyle changes.  Within a year, her self-prescribed regimen gradually strengthen her whole body and, in turn, healed her chronic UTI.  This is her story.
