On different occasions I have mentioned that having a good support system is important to someone with a chronic disease. I am fortunate to have a group of people I can reach out to anytime for anything. One person in particular I can count on for support is my sister-in-law.
She is keenly aware of the challenges that come with having a chronic disease. Because of her own personal circumstances, she had to learn about alternative medicine and supplementation to help her body heal. In conjunction with traditional medicine, she uses herbs, dietary supplements and probiotics to build up her immune system.
Recently, my sister-in-law found a supplement called Ultranol she wanted me to try. Ultranol is marketed as “total bladder support.” The supplement is suppose to alleviate bladder pressure and urgency. Additionally, the ingredients are suppose to help to control and strengthen the bladder by rebuilding new, healthy bladder tissue. Ultranol works to naturally calm the bladder muscle so you can hold it longer. Some of the ingredients listed include D-Mannose, Marshmallow Root Extract, Uva Ursa and L-Arginine. A word of caution: Cranberry Extract is also an ingredient. As I have mentioned in previous posts, before trying any new supplement, check with your medical professional.
I am starting this supplement today! I will keep you updated on how I am feeling after taking Ultranol for a few weeks.
I want to give a “shout out” and a big thank you to my sister-in-law! I am hoping in the near future, she will be a guest author for my blog and share her experiences with getting her health back on track.
If there is a particular supplement that works for you and your bladder, please share in the comments below.
