Lately, I went to the doctor due to recurrent lower abdominal pain. At first I thought it was appendicitis. I was so worried and too scared to undergo surgery/appendectomy. But my ultrasound and x-ray results showed no signs of appendicitis. However, my white blood cells was too high which indicates that my body was fighting an infection. My urinalysis test result showed that I was suffering from Urinary Tract Infection.
Besides the medications and expensive antibiotics, the doctor advised me avoid too much salt, take lots of fluids and fruit juices. I am not really fond of drinking water. I can’t even drink a glass without intervals. I resorted to fruit juices which I considered more pleasant and refreshing.
I don’t really like taking synthetic medicine. Most of the time, I prefer all natural remedies to fight infection.
While I was browsing the internet looking for remedies and treatment, I read about the benefits of cranberry juice. Some testified that the juice helped them cure their UTI.
I went straight to the grocery store to grab a box of cranberry juice. The juice is more expensive than the regular orange or apple juice. A liter, which can be consumed for a day or two costs more than one hundred pesos. I bought three different brands, Fontana (85 pesos/liter), Old Orchard (250 pesos/1.8 liters) and Rauch Happy Day (104 pesos/liter).
Fontana Cranberry Juice tastes too strong that I had to dilute it with half glass of water before drinking. It reminded me of the bitter cough syrup that I used to take when I was little. Old Orchard has a milder taste. But I find it more expensive than the others.
My personal choice is Rauch Happy Day Cranberry Juice. It has a hint of sweetness and a pleasant fruity taste, similar to sweet red wine. I also like the packaging. It comes with handy slim box and a practical screw cap.
After drinking Rauch Happy Day Cranberry juice for a week and half (three glasses per day, without antibiotics), my abdominal pain had vanished.
When the doctor requested lab tests for the second time, I was amazed by the result. My white blood cells went back to normal. My urine color was lighter and the infection was gone!
Since then, whenever I go to the supermarket, I always grab a liter or two of my favorite cranberry juice, Rauch Happy Day brand. Not only that it cured my illness, but I also noticed my skin became clearer and more radiant.
Whether you are healthy or suffering from infection, do try some cranberry juice. I recommend the Rauch Happy Day brand with a fruity pleasure that I’m sure you will love!
Cranberry juice is packed with vitamin C, antioxidants and salicylic acid. It helps fight certain infections, prevents cancer, helps strengthen bones and teeth, and aids to weight loss.
