UTI’s can feel isolating, until you can share the experience.
Claire opened up one day to her friend and colleague Sarah after having suffered from recurring bladder infections chronically for five years. Sarah listened and related to all the home remedies, herbal medicines and antibiotics Clarie had gone through, but nothing had helped permanently.
On every vacation, the local pharmacy was still Claire’s first stop to try the best medicines in that country. She visited almost every urologist in Berlin, but received the same messaging that there wasn't much she could do. Two vaccinations later, with no success she even tried to undergo a cystoscopy under general anesthesia for a cure.
Sarah was experiencing UTI’s as well, contracting several infections throughout the year, and always going through the same loop. There was no one drug at the pharmacy - or online - that helped, nor was there one guidebook that really explained the process properly, that after Antibiotics the ever present yeast infections are about to happen.
Sarah and Claire realized that their lightweight, open and shameless way talking about and treating UTIs should be shared with other women going through the same. The idea for Her Health Company was born.
Sarah and Claire worked in the beauty industry and engaged regularly with industry professionals making supplements as well as skincare. When they explained the concept to experienced nutritionist and friend Christian. He was excited by the challenge of developing new solutions backed by new emerging research. An ally was born.
What they all discovered, that even though over 50% of all women suffer from UTIs, it’s still often a taboo subject with no go-to programmes for preventing and treating the infections. Many women suffer silently, in shame, are anxious and not sufficiently informed.
The trio was determined to find a solution that leaves antibiotics as an absolute last resort. Her Health Company was founded in Berlin in 2020 with the goal of offering women the most effective natural products as well as educating, breaking taboos, and empowering them.
Her Health Co breaks taboos and shatters stigmas around your bladder and vagina health. We seek to educate women about their bodies and empower them to take full control of their health and wellness. To do this, we develop unique natural products backed by science that provide lasting help. At the same time, we want to create a safe place online where women can get help and tips, as well as share and encourage each other. A community where womanhood is celebrated, with all that that entails.
