Things were going really well and then one morning I woke up and felt as though my bladder had magically conjured mini razor blades and I was forced to pee them out... EVERY 10 MINUTES. The pain was insufferable and I was barely able to stay seated through a whole class. Shortly after finding out I was suffering from a UTI (“very common, no need to worry” said the doctor) I was swiftly prescribed a round of antibiotics and told to pee before and after sex. I went on my merry peeing razor blade way.
5 years, a few “boyfriends”, and 9 UTI’s later I found myself in school to becoming a naturopathic doctor and learning the importance of additional preventative care and the increasing horrors of antibiotic overuse.
After extensive trial and error with different herbs, supplements, and lifestyle protocols I was finally able to break the cycle of chronic recurrent UTI’s. The only problem was, there was no single easy to take product on the market that contained the exact dosage of therapeutic material I needed. I wondered if it would be possible to develop a single, all natural product that stops the cycle of UTI’s, or prevents the cycle from starting that was easy to take, maybe even enjoyable.
Fast forward a few more years and I found myself in a conversation with an ex-pharmaceutical developer and a business strategist (ie my current business partners) who have had significant others that have also suffered recurrent UTI’s.
Our superpowers united and a vision was born: MINGO!
