About the Author

Angela Kilmartin is a convent-educated, ex-professional solo singer in London whose career was cut short by seven years of repeated urinary tract infections (UTIs) and candida from all the antibiotics. Now, completely recovered for thirty-five years, she teaches prevention and self-help. She knows it all from the grief, pain, pills, and hospitals to the loss of hope, faith, love, and career, and then revenge. She has toured the United States many times for shows and lectures and sings twice yearly here too. Angela begs women not to allow urological surgery for infections but to accept self-help as the main preventive answer. She discusses many medical conditions that cause cystitis and UTIs and need appropriate medical attention. Overall this brave woman has made millions of women well just through her books and media work.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best book for cystitis 13 May 2005
By A Customer
This book saved me; in more ways than one. It saved my mental state, my relationship and cured me from constant cystitis. Please please please, if you know ANYONE with frequent cystitis, advise them to buy this book. People with Chronic Bladder Infections do not have to live on anti-biotics, with thrush, unable to drink alcohol, living in fear of sex..... this book has the answers. Since buying the book 5 years ago, after constant cystitis for a entire year, GP's had recommended me to a urologist, my immune system was exhausted after continuous anti-biotics. I read this book and havent had an infection since.The answers are simple+ Kilmartin is a Godsend!

5.0 out of 5 stars This book has saved my life! 20 Aug 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am normally very sceptical about books which people claim to be life changing, but this is one of them. The advice is based on common sense and since reading it, my life has been turned around.

I have suffered from cystitis for over 7 years and have had recurring cystitis for over a year now. It has ruined my relationship, my social life, disrupted my degree studies and at my lowest points has made me feel suicidal. I know that cystitis affects women in many different ways and may merely be a slight nuisance to some. But for those of you that have suffered from recurrent cystitis, returning to the doctors again and again for yet more antibiotics, and feel like you've tried every route you could (you may have even had surgery), PLEASE, buy this book.

As a piece of literature, the book may have it's flaws. Indeed there is repetition, and information is not always presented in a logical order throughout. (However, I presume that this is because the book is split into three parts, for the different types of sufferers and assumes that many readers may only look at the section relevant to them.) The book is written in a language that is easy to understand and is very sympathetic to the reader, which I found comforting. For me, the sense of repetition and the emphasis that is put on carrying out the preventative measures has been very helpful. I imagine it is written for the sceptical reader (initially myself included), who believes that no one could possibly help them after endless doctors have tried, but Kilmartin can. When she says she knows best, just swallow your pride because she is right!

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have for sufferers, it works!! 4 Oct 2002
By A Customer
This book is a god-send. The book is based on prevention being the key. It describes the many causes and advice on how to pin point your exact cause which will help you preventing getting it again. The book contains natural ways of preventing attacks as well as natural remedies to take on the onset of an. A large emphasis on the book is on cleanliness, its suprising how much bacteria is around even if you are very clean!
There are parts of the book which reiterate the same point but that just drives home the importance of that point!
I have had the book for about 4 months and i have not had a full attack since i have started following her instructions. Admitidly I have had minor symptoms when i have slipped up and not followed her instructions properly, but that just shows her instructions are working.
I recommend it for any suffers, I much prefer having to do preventative natural treatments than being constantly on antibiotics!

5.0 out of 5 stars It works!!!!!! 24 July 2006
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have been following Angela's advice for about six years now. I can't say I've never had another attack, but the difference has been transforming. On the rare occassions I do get an attack now I know exactly how to 'nip it in the bud' and minimise the pain and discomfort. I used to suffer very frequent attacks with lots of bleeding and excruciating pain. Nothing helped me until I started taking Angela's advice. I am so extremely grateful to her, as she has made such a difference to my life.

4.0 out of 5 stars Content wins over style 19 Aug 2002
By A Customer
This book will provide real encouragement and hope for any woman who gets and dreads getting cystitis. Angela Kilmartin really seems to know what she's talking about and her no-nonsense style is surprisingly uplifting and motivating as she empathises with her readers. There is lots of detail about the causes of cystitis (also thrush) and lots of guidance on getting the most out of the medical profession. Her real enthusiasm, however, is reserved for the area of personal hygiene about which she is positively evangelical! There are VERY clear instructions on washing and dos and don'ts, as well as a wealth of lifestyle tips.
Although very welcome, this book is let down by its lack of an index and can be confusing to find your way about in. Various principles are reiterated and repeated all over the place which can be confusing if you are looking for something specific and the order of the sections is also a bit odd.
Don't let this put you off, though!! Having just bought the book two days ago, I can't say whether it's worked for me yet, but I already feel as though I have been equipped to improve my own situation and am determined to follow her advice to the letter!

I was reading the book this morning and her style of writing, the usefulness of information and her ability to sympathize with the reader made me think that I have to write a review about this book. There are many useful sexual information in the book to prevent thrush and cystitis (what I've been suffering with). Some of the tips are repeated, which i love about this book because i have to keep repeating information to myself to remember the tips in preventing cystitis and thrush, etc. her repetition of information assists me in remembering the useful tips.

Also, as an active feminist I am in love with her ideas of how a good sex should be; which is basically having your own way with sex and responding to what your body wants, not falling for what porn industries try to portray to you, etc.

I must quote this sentence from her book which inspired me this morning "porn films and magazines are not promoting love, they're promoting fortunes and slavery. Why make rich men richer?" Now you might think "how is this related to cystitis?" but trust me after reading this, I've realized that many of my attitudes and ways of having sex (taught and encouraged by the hyper-sexual aspects of the modern society) have been possibly causing me pain, thrush and cystitis, I am 20 and have never been openly taught the right and comfortable ways of having sex. So this book is very handy and useful. I totally recommend it.
