Are you suffering from an increase in urinary tract infections now that you are in perimenopause or menopause? If you are looking for a solution that does not involve constantly going back to the doctor for antibiotics, then can I recommend essential oils and essential oil based supplements?
I have had great success helping people with UTI’s with essential oils- UTI’s are unfortunately very common with perimenopause and menopause During perimenopause and menopause the drop in the estrogen and progesterone leads to reduced blood flow in the vaginal walls. This results in atrophy and loss of lubrication.
You may experience:
- Pale vagina surface
- Repeated UTI’s
- Itchiness or burning sensation
- Difficulty getting aroused
- Reduced sex drive
- Painful intercourse.
Essential oils are helpful in relieving the spasms and purifying the body and eliminating the bacteria that cause the infection.
“Used in Western Herbal medicine to support general health & wellbeing, urinary tract health and to relieve burning sensation upon urination associated with medically diagnosed cystitis, Copaiba essential oil now comes in an easy to swallow vegetarian and carrageenan free softgel.”
If you suffer from frequent recurring UTI’s and you would like to purchase any of these products go to katische.com/shop

Prevention is better than cure
Can anything be done to help prevent UTIs?
According to the National Kidney Foundation, the following steps may help to prevent UTIs:
- Drink plenty of fluids.
- Studies show that drinking a glass of cranberry juice each day may help prevent recurrent UTIs. New research also suggests a similar effect from other cranberry products, including dried cranberries and dietary supplements. Cranberries contain compounds that may stop certain bacteria from attaching to the urinary tract wall. For those with diabetes or at-risk for diabetes, low-sugar or sugar-free options are available.
- Don’t postpone going to the bathroom, urinate when you feel the urge.
- Women should also: Wipe from front to back to prevent bacteria from the bowels from getting into the urinary tract. Cleanse the genital area every day and before having sex. Empty your bladder completely before going to sleep.
- Take a supplement with cranberry or pomegranate. (doTERRA’s Life Long Vitality and Phytogestrogen Complex both contain Pomegranate)
- Use a pre and probiotic
- Regularly undertake a gut health cleanse a couple of times a year.
