How we kick UTI's without antibiotics at the Oklahoma Donkey Dairy

I see you. My silent suffering friend.

I'm with you. It stinks. No one wants to take antibiotics and wipe out all the hard working good gut bacteria over a silly Urinary Tract Infection...

But, when you've already spent hundreds of dollars on Vitamin C, Cranberry D Mannose, Uva Ursi, Homeopathic remedies, Monolaurin, Lauricidin, Oregano oil capsules, corn silk, Apple Cider Vinegar, and every other supplement out there that promises to work naturally for a UTI, and still leaves you miserable...

You eventually resort to the gut destroying antibiotics. Because, you're desperate, and nothing is working, and you have to WORK and do life and nobody has time for a UTI!!! Plus, it's embarrassing.

I mean, just writing this email is embarrassing.

But, we were sharing our story about PANDAS when it was an embarrassing, unmentionable hushed and questionable diagnosis no one was talking about...

And, then we started milking donkeys. Try introducing yourself as a donkey milker in the Bible belt. We're used to hearing all the "donkey" milking jokes...

And now, sigh, I'm probably going to hear all the UTI jokes.

But, it's worth it to help you all, my friends who struggle in silence, peeing burning razor blades.

I'll suffer the jokes to tell you what worked for me.

It's not donkey milk.

It's not Cranberry D-Mannose or Uva Ursi or Vitamin C, or drinking apple cider vinegar. (Yes, I tried them ALL, and a bunch of other supplements I can't remember.)

It's...another Biblical thing...because, along with raising lots and lots of donkeys...they also grew...flax.

And I'm sure they had UTI's. Because, nomadic, tent dwelling, no showers in the desert, farming, fifteen kids, life.

And I'm sure they used their flax to spin and make clothes (hello, linen.)

And maybe they also used their flax to make this simple remedy for UTI's that I have never ever heard of, until I was so desperate after a serious reaction to antibiotics that nearly landed me in the ER, that I searched through my daughter's herbal books of old remedies, and found this.

And tried it. worked!!!

All it takes is a strong gag reflex. Because, after you boil ground flax, it turns to slime, and reminds one of...drinking hot snot. And, the snottier consistency, the better. I've tried to drink it before it reaches the full on snot consistency, and, unfortunately, it doesn't work quite as well...

But, I'll drink a big ol' mug of hot snot (boiled ground flax seed tea) any day if it will kick a UTI without resorting to antibiotics.

Now, for those of you who question whether drinking hot snot, I mean, hot slimy flax water "tea" is all I did to kick my burning razor blade UTI, I have to admit, I also took manuka honey and donkey milk. And dumped in some cinnamon, allspice, and nutmeg.

Because, hot snot is a bit difficult to get down on it's own.

And, yes, manuka honey has "antibacterial, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties. It may benefit wound healing, cough relief, ulcer healing, digestion, and oral health. Many cultures have used Manuka honey for wound healing for centuries." Link HERE for more info on Manuka Honey.

And, yes, Donkey Milk is also antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral. (Link to published research on all of that up HERE.)

So, maybe it was the combination of the hot snot flax drink, and the donkey milk, and the manuka honey, and the cinnamon...

But, I tried the donkey milk and the manuka honey combo without the hot snot, and it didn't cut it.

Apparently, you need the hot snot for the win. Maybe just the hot snot? (If you try it, let me know if it works without the manuka honey, cinnamon, and donkey milk.)

And no, I'm not selling Hot Snot Flax drinks.

I'm just sharing, because, this helped me avoid the dreaded gut destroying antbiotics, and the misery of peeing razor blades.

And if I have something that I know saved me from hell on earth, I have to share.

Speaking of, have I told you about Jesus? No? Well, let me tell you. He's the way, the truth, and the life. Message me if you want the Good News. It's even better than hot snot flax drinks for UTI's.

And I think he would have a pretty good chuckle over my hot snot email as a conduit for sharing about Him.

I hope so anyway.

Hot snot drink pictured above in my favorite Hee Haw for Health mug.

It's stupid easy. And stupid cheap. And you can just go buy some organic ground flax at Costco. You don't even have to grow it, thresh, it harvest it...

You just have to drink hot snot.

RECIPE FOR HOT SNOT (Ground Flax Tea):

8 oz hot water (distilled is preferable)
Bring to a boil
Add 2 heaping TBSP of Ground Flax Seed
Boil for a minute or two..stirring constantly
Decrease heat to simmer and continue stirring until turns to hot snot consistency.

Pour into your favorite mug, when it's warm, but not super scalding hot, you can add cream, honey, cinnamon, nutmeg, whatever it takes to swallow hot snot. (I prefer to take my manuka honey and donkey milk separately, because, I don't like to heat it. More on that later.)


At least once a day, until you can pee without it burning like fire. And then a few more days for good measure.

Bring on the UTI jokes now.

I can handle it.

Blessings from your friend, the donkey milker, hot snot drinker, Jesus lover, and sharer of random helpful natural remedies,

Saundra case anyone forgot, I'm still not a doctor. Or a pastor. Obviously never went to medical school or bible college.

Pretty sure this email would be frowned on by both those establishments.

Just a mom on a mission.

And yes, part of that mission is to help families be healthier, mind, body, and soul. This is not medical advice. This is just my story of my anecdotal UTI kicking remedy. Consult your doctor. Don't burn your tongue. Hot snot is hot. Use a hot pad. Blow on hot snot before slurping so you don't burn your tongue.

Blah blah blah.

Oh, and did I mention we have donkey milk?

And you don't even have to milk a donkey to get it.

Below is my favorite, bulk, Costco, non-gmo, flax.

You're welcome.

And no, I'm not getting paid by Costco to promote their ground flax.

But, I'm up for it. Just saying. I could totally be on TV as "The Donkey Milk Lady" promoting hot snot. It would be classic. Better than "Have Mikey try it!!"


P.S. Feel free to share this blog post with the world. Because, UTI's affect pretty much everyone, at some point, whether you're in the nursing home when they make you lose your mind, or in Zimbabwe, or Oklahoma.

We're grateful for....Hot Snot Tea.

FLAX in the Bible (link HERE to info below)

"flaks pesheth, also pishtah; linon (Matthew 12:20)):

The above Hebrew words are applied

(1) to the plant:

"The flax was in bloom" (the King James Version "bolled"; Exodus 9:31);

(2) the "stalks of flax," literally, "flax of the tree," put on the roof to dry (Joshua 2:6);

(3) to the fine fibers used for lighting:

the King James Version "tow," "flax," the Revised Version (British and American). "A dimly burning wick will he not quench" (Isaiah 42:3); "They are quenched as a wick" (Isaiah 43:17). The thought is perhaps of a scarcely lighted wick just kindled with difficulty from a spark.

(4) In Isaiah 19:9 mention is made of "combed flax," i.e. flax hackled ready for spinning (compare Hosea 2:5,9Proverbs 31:13). The reference in Judges 15:14 is to flax twisted into cords.

(5) In Judges 16:9Isaiah 1:31, mention is made of ne`oreth, "tow," literally, something "shaken off"--as the root implies--from flax.

(6) The plural form pishtim is used in many passages for linen, or linen garments, e.g. Leviticus 13:47,48,52,59Deuteronomy 22:11Jeremiah 13:1 ("linen girdle"); Ezekiel 44:17 f. Linen was in the earliest historic times a favorite material for clothes. The Jewish priestly garments were of pure linen. Egyptian mummies were swathed in linen. Several other Hebrew words were used for linen garments.


Flax is the product of Linum usitatissimum, a herbaceous plant which has been cultivated from the dawn of history. It is perennial and grows to a height of 2 to 3 ft.; it has blue flowers and very fibrous stalks. The tough fibers of the latter, after the decay and removal of the softer woody and gummy material, make up the crude "flax." Linseed, linseed oil and oilcake are useful products of the same plant.
