Using Waterfall D-Mannose Lemon
A heaped teaspoon of powder (2-3g) every 3 hours during the day. Additional doses during the night until feeling well can significantly speed up recovery time.
When symptoms are completely gone, increase the length of time between doses. For example, after a few days try reducing to every 4 hours, then every 5 or 6 hours after a week, working towards a daily before sleep maintenance dose.
Waterfall D-Mannose Lemon can be used alongside original Waterfall D-Mannose as a refreshing alternative.
Keeping infections at bay / prophylactic maintenance
A teaspoonful of powder before bed is an excellent prophylactic dose.
Sex Related Support
A teaspoonful (2gm) of powder an hour before sex, and immediately afterwards. Continue to use for about 48 hrs afterwards as an excellent support for preventing sex-related episodes.
Basically, as a food supplement, you take as much of it as you need either for urgent support, or maintenance. Reduce slowly once symptoms have gone. Try using before travel, sexual intimacy, cycling, sport or travel as a preventative.
Other things to consider
Unfortunately, embedded bacteria live deep in the bladder wall and take time to be removed. They are driven there to escape antibiotic attack, so even when you get well on WDM, for a while these "hidden" bacteria have the potential to grow again (usually during the night when the urine becomes acidic), hence repeat attacks.
When you are well, a little before sleep 2-3gms of powder (a heaped teaspoon) with approximately 150-200 ml liquid plus maintaining an alkaline diet should keep you free permanently.
While you are getting there, it must be every three hrs and at least once in the night literally) plus you need to keep the urine pH above 7.5.
This keeps in line with the bacterial growth which can double every 20 - 40 minutes. Most people take 3gms of powder (a heaped teaspoon) or three tablets every three hours with approximately 150-200 ml liquid and this has proved effective.
Use Waterfall D-Mannose Lemon to support your progress.

Alkalising with Waterfall D-Mannose Lemon - Lemons and Anions
Though it seems counter-intuitive to think that adding acidic lemon to your drinking water could ultimately produce an alkaline result, it's important to remember that lemons are anionic.
Anions are negatively charged ions that have a multiplicity of researched beneficial health properties. And, it seems that lemons a have a higher concentration of negatively charged ions, or anions than any other fruit. Once consumed, your body reacts with the lemons' anions during the digestive process, creating a temporary and useful (bacteria inhibiting) alkalising effect in the urine.
Why is alkalising important?
Research has shown that bacteria thrives in an acidic environment, therefore controlling the pH of your urine can significantly reduce bacterial growth. Reducing bacterial growth can help the D-Mannose work more quickly, with less bacteria being present at each dose.
Whilst Waterfall D-Mannose goes some way in controlling urine pH, additional support can be found by avoiding alcohol, red meats, fatty foods and coffee. View a list of acidifying and alkalising foods here.
Our Grandmothers Used Bicarbonate of Soda
We hesitate to suggest prolonged use of Bicarbonate of Soda to regulate the urine pH. As a sodium salt, it can affect some pre-existing health conditions: too much sodium in the blood is called hypernatremia and at extreme levels is dangerous. Too little sodium, hyponatremia (caused usually by drinking too much water or because not enough water is being passed out of the body).
Both hypernatremia, hyponatremia can be fatal if not treated promptly.
But Our Grandmothers also used Lemon -Why?
- Lemon has an alkalising effect on the urine.
- Lemon acts as a mild diuretic helping to flush toxins and bad bacteria from the body.
- When mixed with hot water, lemon supports digestion and the release of toxins from the liver.
- Lemons provide four times as much Vitamin C as oranges. So by adding lemons to your daily diet you get the benefits of Vitamin C without the acidifying effects of ascorbic acid. Most bacteria thrive in an acidic environment.
- Lemons provide potassium and also limonoids which are thought to persist in the body for several hours. One limonoid called limonin, a phytonutrient, stays in your body for up to 24 hours.
- Limonin also fights obesity and is reported to lower blood sugar.
“The term limonoids was derived from limonin, the first tetranortriterpenoid obtained from citrus bitter principles. Compounds belonging to this group have exhibited a range of biological activities ... antibacterial, antifungal, antimalarial, anticancer, antiviral ... activities on humans” Biol Pharm Bull. 2006 Feb; 29(2):191-201.Limonoids: overview of significant bioactive triterpenes distributed in plants kingdom.
