Almost half of all women in America experienced UTI during their lifetime, some of them have recurrent urinal tract infections or chronic UTI.
If you one of them and sick and tired of taking many courses of antibiotics with their side effects, you may try the non-drug approach. For example, 47 years old lady visits Biotherapy Alternative Medicine Clinic with recurrent urinal tract infections. Every two-three months she took antibiotics, drank cranberry juice without longstanding relives. Besides, she was anxious, moody, weak, overweight, has many yeast infections and skin rushes. She had gas, bloating, craving for sugar, anxiety, constipation and some day’s diarrhea.
Anatomy and hormonal changes predispose millions of women to bladder infections. Men are another story. The long urethra and prostate gland on the way of the infection to the urinal bladder makes infection stay in the prostate causing millions of chronic prostatitis.
Using broad-spectrum of the antibiotics to kill infection will not solve the problems with the recurrent UTI. Antibiotics win a battle but lose the war because the problem is not only infection. Over the last 10-15 years, we have seen a huge jump in recurrent UTI that are resistant to many of antimicrobial drugs.
Nowadays, many rounds of antibiotics create antibiotic-resistant strains of the microbes. Moreover, antibiotics eradicate not only harmful microorganisms but also the beneficial intestinal bacteria, which responsible for right digestion, immunity, and controlling Candida-yeast overgrowth.
Unhealthy foods, overusing of the antibiotics, BCP and other medications, alcohol consumption, environmental toxins lead to dysbiosis when beneficial intestinal bacteria are gone, and Candida-yeast overgrow. For instance, one out of three woman in the U.S. have a history of vaginal yeast infection, we have an epidemic of the digestive disorders and chronic infections. By common sense, just focus on killing harmful microorganisms by “find and destroy” ways is not a perfect solution.
We need to rebuild the beneficial intestinal bacteria, boost the immunity, and fight with Candida-yeast in the gut, mouth, vagina, anywhere.
In the jungle of the Internet, there are thousands of websites with promises “To kill Candida for the rest of your life”, “Eradicate Candida forever”, etc. Unfortunately, it is impossible. We have to restore the natural mechanism how the human being survives in the constant war with the “smartest” microorganism in the world, such as the Candida-yeast. The main warrior in this war is beneficial intestinal flora. Lactobacillus (probiotics), which can compete with Candida-yeast for food, the place to live, and keep yeast in check.
Contrary to common believe, advice to drink yogurt and take cheep, and low quality probiotics usually help only those hwo sell them. I wrote that Candida-yeast was the “smartest” microorganism in the world. When it overgrows, it takes over mucous membranes of the large intestine, vagina, urinal bladder, mouth, ears; places which are warm, wet, acidic, and do not have the oxygen. Yeasts make the roots and grow deeply inside the mucous tissue of the colon, produce resilient biofilm-barrier that keep them resistant to other microorganisms.
If the bandits take over the parking lot, good people cannot park the cars there. It needs the law forces and tow away to get rid of the bad gays. In case of the Candida-yeast overgrowth, we need various actions including:
- removing the yeast colonies via water by using colon hydrotherapy
- decreasing amount of the yeast poplation by herbs and other anti Candida remedies
- stop feeding the yeast with sugars, sodas, wheat, etc
- boost immunity by acupuncture, nutritional supplements, healthy food
- put on many fresh, strong warriors-probiotics on the battlefield
Doing that simultaneusly as a Biotherapy healing program, can reestablish friendly intestinal flora in the colon, decrease amount of the Candida-yeast to unharmful level.
There is another thing that women with recurrent UTI are not aware of. It is whole body acidity that is common in the case of urinal tract infections or chronic UTI. Whole body acidity is rampant today due to unhealthy eating habits, acidic-formed foods, overusing some medications, drinking alcohol, Candida-yeast overgrowth, and dehydration. Urine pH of the persons with whole body acidity is typically below 6, 6, which is acidic.
The acidity of urine may influence how well bacteria can thrive in the urinary tract, a new study shows. The researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis showed the importance keeping urine pH neutral or slightly alkaline for the treating urinary tract infections. The study appears on June 26, 2015, issue of The Journal of Biological Chemistry.
Drinking healing mineral water that prepared from genuine Karlovy Vary thermal spring salt at home can make the urine alkaline, support the beneficial bacteria. Taking the Cellular Magnesium-Potassium, Anti-Candida program, and the healing food consultation can also normalize the body acid-alkaline balance.
Urinary tract infections (UTIs) frequently are caused by a strain of bacteria Escherichia coli (E. coli). Practitioners of Biotherapy Clinic widely use spicy herbs and nutritional supplements that both destroy E. coli and prevent these harmful bacteria to attach to the urinal bladder’s walls.
You may ask how the about lady with recurrent urinal tract infections and yeast infections that I mentioned before?
After acompished Biotherapy program she has recovered from chronic UTI and yeast infections, stopped taking repetitive courses of antibiotics and focused on maintenance of good health.
We helped many women, and our door is open to those who look for alternative treatment strategies.
