URALIX FAQs2021-03-14T18:45:21+00:00
Why do I get recurring UTIs even after taking repeated courses of antibiotics?2021-02-10T14:48:39+00:00

New research shows the reason this happens is that bacteria have developed antibiotic resistance and settle in the bladder lining, building a protective layer called biofilm.

Antibiotics cannot reach the bacteria hidden behind the biofilm and are ineffective in this case. The ingredients in URALIX can interact with the biofilm and tackle the bacteria underneath. Clearing the biofilm and healing the bladder wall affected by recurring UTIs takes time, and this is the reason it is recommended to continue taking URALIX for 6-9 months after the symptoms resolved.

I have a history of recurring UTIs with ongoing symptoms, and on-off antibiotics. How can URALIX help, how shall I take it?2021-02-10T15:06:18+00:00

You must start with 4 capsules x 3 times a day for 5 days, in order to flush the bladder, then must follow right away with 2 capsules x 2 times a day to be taken for 6-9 months in order to maintain an antibacterial and anti-inflammatory environment of your urinary tract.

URALIX addresses the bacteria that settled inside your bladder wall, as well as the bladder inflammation. The bladder lining cells are shedding and are replaced by new cells in a natural process that can take 6-9 months.

Antibiotics were supposed to work, yet time after time my cystitis comes back. Why don’t antibiotics clear the infection for good?2021-02-10T15:09:11+00:00

Due to antibiotics overuse, bacteria causing UTI is becoming resistant to mainstream antibiotics.

New research shows that bacteria develop new protection mechanisms against the antibiotics: they anchor themselves to the bladder wall, form colonies and secrete a mucus like membrane called biofilm that cannot be penetrated by antibiotics.

The bacterial biofilm is the main reason chronic, antibiotics resistant infections are leading to serious complications.

I don’t like swallowing capsules, does URALIX come in syrup or small tablets?2021-02-10T15:08:12+00:00

URALIX comes only in capsules, but many people open the capsules and dissolve the contents in a glass of water with a drop of honey, milk or juice and take it as a drink.

What happens if I do not treat Cystitis?2021-02-10T15:09:53+00:00

Infections left untreated can quickly progress to the kidneys, requiring urgent medical attention, intensive treatments and hospitalisation.

Complicated cases of Cystitis/UTI can lead to severe kidney damage requiring dialysis and even sepsis.

I took painkillers when I had Cystitis. Is this a good treatment?2021-02-10T15:11:01+00:00

Painkillers just dull the pain temporarily making you feel marginally better but allowing the bacteria to multiply freely. Cystitis/UTI need to be treated properly because they can very quickly develop into a serious, life threatening infection.

What happens if I forget to take a dose of URALIX?2021-02-10T15:11:40+00:00

You can take it when you next remember, but allow several hours between doses.

Are there any possible side effects2022-02-22T13:41:44+00:00

Some bloating and loose stools might occur in the first few days. This is normal and it will resolve by itself in a few days. Continue taking as directed.

I’m suffering from bad symptoms, can I increase the URALIX dosage?2021-02-10T15:13:06+00:00

It is best to take URALIX as per directions on the pack.

I have finished the 60 capsule pack and it cleared my symptoms. How shall I take URALIX for prevention of recurring Cystitis?2021-02-10T15:14:20+00:00

You can continue for a minimum of 3 months, but the most effective protocol is to take for URALIX for 6 months, 2 capsules x 2 times a day, a total of 4 capsules a day.

The URALIX prevention pack (120 capsules) represents a month supply and it can be preordered.

I have taken a lot of antibiotics over the years due to frequent painful Cystitis symptoms, and I am getting multiple yeast infections as a result. Do I have to continue antibiotics for the rest of my life?2021-02-10T15:15:03+00:00

Many women are in a similar situation, following decades of frequent treatments. URALIX targets the Cystitis/UTIs through a different mechanism and might help clear the symptoms and prevent new episodes.

Equally important, it does not cause yeast infections.

I get terrible cystitis after sexual activity, can I use URALIX every time as prevention?2021-02-10T15:16:03+00:00

Yes, URALIX is 100% Antibiotic free and it can be used on a regular basis as Prevention against Cystitis and UTI’s.

URALIX does NOT cause yeast infections or antibiotic resistance making it a safe and efficient long term prophylactic product for Cystitis/UTI’s triggered by Sexual Activity.

The URALIX Travel Pack/Blister card is a small and convenient package that can be used when travelling, or taken to work during the day.

Is there a certain gene responsible for frequent UTIs/Cystitis, and Interstitial Cystitis?2021-02-10T15:17:13+00:00

It has not been proven that genetics play a role in Cystitis/UTIs and Interstitial Cystitis.

Anatomy can be a factor in case of a very short Urethra, allowing bacteria easy access to the bladder.

The type of bacteria that enters our urinary tract can play a role – getting an infection with a very pathogenic bacteria, resistant to many antibiotics, contributes to the chronic recurring infections so difficult to treat.

What foods shall I avoid when having bladder pain, burning pain when passing urine?2021-02-10T15:19:44+00:00

Avoid alcohol, especially Champagne and Prosecco, any sparkling drinks, lemon juice, sugar, spicy, smoked and fried foods, as all are further irritating the bladder.

Of course, smoking and caffeine are not recommended.

Can you eliminate the symptoms in 24 hours?2021-02-10T15:27:25+00:00

Nothing works that quickly, normally symptoms are cleared after 2- 3 days but you can start to notice an improvement after 24-36 hours.

I have frequent UTI’s for years. Why does it happen?2021-02-10T15:26:36+00:00

Research has shown that bacteria, and specifically E.coli, have evolved and developed a protective mechanism that renders antibiotics ineffective.

Bacteria burrows itself inside the bladder wall, forms microbial colonies and secrete a mucus based substance (biofilm) that antibiotics cannot penetrate.

Can I treat cystitis with bicarbonate of soda?2021-02-10T15:25:43+00:00

Sounds easy, but it doesn’t help. Actually 4% -7% of bicarbonate poisoning cases are due to people attempting to treat UTI at home.

Can Cystitis/UTI with mild symptoms be treated without antibiotics?2021-02-10T15:24:54+00:00

Yes. URALIX can help. It is very important to drink two litres (half a gallon) of water a day.

Can URALIX help in 100% of cystitis and UTI cases?2021-02-10T15:23:55+00:00

No antibiotic, medical formulation or supplement works in 100% of the cases. URALIX can help in cases of Cystitis/UTIs caused by E.coli, which represent 90% of the cases.

I had a course of antibiotics, but after two weeks the UTI came back. What shall I do now?2021-02-10T15:22:28+00:00

In case of recurring infections, its best to first get a urine culture through your doctor to identify the type of bacteria that causes the recurring infection.

URALIX can help in cases of recurring infections with E.coli strains by clearing the bacteria from the bladder, and at the same time healing the bladder wall due to its anti-inflammatory ingredients. Check the directions of use for prevention.

I have mild signs of cystitis, shall I start treating it or wait?2021-02-10T15:21:46+00:00

It’s best to start addressing it right away, because if left untreated it allows the bacteria to multiply and settle in your bladder and urinary tract making it more difficult to treat.

URALIX offers a natural, effective antibiotic-free approach, which you can start taking right away following the directions for symptoms of Cystitis and UTI. Start drinking two litres of water a day and avoid fizzy drinks, alcohol, spicy food and tight clothing that aggravate symptoms.

I think I have a bladder infection. I have bladder pain and passing urine is painful. Are these Cystitis/UTI symptoms?2021-02-10T15:21:01+00:00

If it is the first time you experience bladder pain, burning sensation when passing urine, frequent urination difficult to control, its best to see your doctor for a check in order to have a clear diagnosis.

What foods or diet can help?2021-02-10T15:20:27+00:00

Adding to your diet plenty of vegetables, leafy greens (lettuce, spinach, kale), green tea, and yogurt can be helpful in restoring the pH balance of urine.

Research shows that an alkaline urine is a deterrent for bacterial multiplication.

What is so particular about this bacteria E.coli?2021-02-10T15:18:35+00:00

E.coli can be a friend or a foe. Found in the intestines, most strains are harmless and help maintain a healthy bacterial balance.

But once they migrate from the intestines and reach the urethra and bladder they become very aggressive and cause 90% of all UTIs. Many strains of E.coli are increasingly resistant to antibiotics and left untreated can cause serious kidney damage and even systemic infections, like sepsis.

Is E.coli the bacteria causing the majority of UTIs already resistant to the commonly used antibiotics?2021-02-10T15:17:57+00:00

There are no precise statistics regarding all strains of E.coli, simply because bacteria constantly evolves and mutates. Sadly, due to antibiotics overuse, approximately 60-70% of E.coli strains are resistant to the main antibiotic classes.

There is an urgent need to develop new effective solutions against common infections.

Shall I take URALIX before or after food?2021-02-10T15:13:39+00:00

It is best to take URALIX with food and a glass of water.

I am pregnant and I am getting symptoms. Had Cystitis/UTI many times before, shall I go to the GP?2021-02-10T15:12:32+00:00

Yes, definitely.

Can I take URALIX if I have diabetes?2021-02-10T15:05:36+00:00

You can take Uralix subject to continuing to test the glucose levels, please check with your GP before starting any new supplement.

One of the ingredients, D-mannose ( 400mg/capsule) is an isomer of glucose- not glucose- that is metabolised differently than glucose, it is not stored in the liver but rapidly eliminated through the urinary tract with negligible effect on the sugar metabolism.

Research shows that quantities as high as 0.2g/kg ( that is 12 grams/person weighting 60kg or 14 grams/person weighting 70kg) taken at once do not affect glucose concentration.

4 URALIX capsules include 1,6 grams of D-mannose.

“A bolus of <0.2g/Kg body weight increases mannose concentration by 3-fold with a clearance T1/2 of ~ 4hr, without affecting glucose concentration” https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4252654/

:”A good sugar, D- mannose suppresses autoimmune diabetes” https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5613377/

Is URALIX guaranteed to work in 100% of the cases?2021-02-10T15:03:59+00:00

When taken as directed, typically, it helps in 85% of the cases.

Consult your doctor if symptoms do not improve after 3 days, as stated on the box/bottle.

In the healthcare and wellbeing area nothing is guaranteed 100%.

If taken as directed and URALIX does not work – what could be the reason for that?2021-02-10T14:49:18+00:00

It is possible that your symptoms are not caused by cystitis, but by other pelvic conditions (like for example: gynaecological conditions like a STD, vaginal infection, endometriosis, etc) or that cystitis is caused by a rather uncommon type of bacteria or a fungus.

Consult your doctor if symptoms do not improve after 3 days, as stated on the box/bottle.

Can children take URALIX?2021-02-10T14:48:02+00:00

This is a very common question, as UTIs are rather common among children. We always recommend checking this with the GP by sending the link https://bluegreenhealth.co.uk/product/uralix-capsules/ . Also see on the site the review by a consultant Pediatrician.

Obviously, the amounts should be adjusted according to age. The capsules can be opened and dissolved in water with a little honey or sugar.
