I’m a Baby Boomer so I don’t get embarrassed easy anymore. I have my own voice. To some this subject is embarrassing. My daughter would say: “Mom there are so many topics you can choose to write an article about why this subject.” To put it simply women need help. What is the safest way to walk across a mine field? To walk in the footsteps of the person who made it across safely. Don’t go through years of antibiotics that disturbs the balance in your body. I’m not saying antibiotics are never necessary but they are not necessary for an E-Coli bladder infection. There are better choices.

I had bladder infections for four years caused by an infected imbedded stone in the kidneys. The kidneys empty into the bladder, bacteria colonies and all. I was treated with antibiotics and had kidney surgery to remove the stone. Now I get drug resistant urinary tract infections.

 

What Causes Most Bladder Infections?

Stress can cause bladder infections. Food that causes diarrhea in lactose intolerent woman (a sugar in most dairy products) and woman with celiac disease (gluten in grains) because the urethra is in close proximity to the rectum. Most (90 percent) urinary tract infections are caused by E-Coli that adheres to the lining of the bladder. A few strains of E. coli bacteria that cause most lower urinary tract infections -urethritis and cystitis- are like Velcro. E. coli have tiny “grappling hooks” (pili) (like pirates in old movies) that allow them to bind to “loops” (certain receptors) (docking bays) on the cells of the urinary tract. Here they invade a cell like a pirate and hide and multiply. They are sophisticated enough to find another cell host before an infected cell self-destructs. How does E-Coli migrate to the bladder? Sometimes E-Coli is transmitted through sexual intercourse. Sometimes through sanitation practices. If you share a bathroom clean the toilet before using it. Get in the habit of throwing a piece of toilet paper in the bowl before you sit down. It prevents water from splashing back. The next instructions are more detailed than what your parents have thought you since you were three. Toilet paper isn’t enough as a sanitary measure if you’re prone to bladder infections. Wiping the wrong way is definitively asking for bacteria, especially if you’re a woman. You must wipe from front to back. If you’re overweight it can be difficult. Every time you have a bowel movement you must clean with water and soap. Fill a big recycled bottle with warm water and set it on the floor. Lift the toilet seat up and sit down on the rim. Slope your bottom downwards. Pour some warm water on the genitals and anus. Grab an unscented bar of soap and suds your pubic hair, genitals moving towards the anus and including the anus. Pour warm water down the front towards genitals to rinse all of the soap. Get up and wash your hands. Dry your bottom with a face cloth. Change your underwear. How can this be done at work? It can’t be done at all work facilities. You have to make do with wet wipes until you get home. Carry an extra pair of underwear in your purse to change. Depending where you work, if you wear a dress in the summer it makes it easier to change your underwear.

 

Diet

For 21 days from the beginning of a bladder infection avoid all beverages containing caffeine as it has been shown to cause the muscles around the bladder to contract and exert additional pressure but mainly because it creates acidic urine conditions. Other foods that create acidic urine: meat from animals fed a grain diet as oposed to grass fed, alcohol, non herbal tea, carbonated beverages, and tomato based foods. Avoid sugar (table-sugar, cane sugar, brown sugar, powdered sugar, honey, syrups, sucrose table-sugar added to fruit juices, sodas, preserves, molasses,jams, jellies and candies. Other food items to watch for: flavoured yogurts, sweatened cereals, sports and energy bars, aspartane (Nutra Sweet or Equal) and sucralose (Splenda.)

 

Warning cranbery juice creates an acidic urine condition providing E.coli a suitable environment to multiply. Should drink organic cranberry juice only if your lab results indicate a Proteus Mirabilis infection as it multiplies slower in acid urine. The small antiadhesion benefits of cranberry are outweighed by the uric acid condition for an E.coli infection.

A rare sugar called D-Mannose that occurs naturally in some plants such as cranberry and pineapple has up to 50 times the antiadhesion of cranberry and you get the advantage of not acidifying your urine is available in health food stores. D-Mannose is a product as effective as antibiotics to clear up an E.coli infection in 1 to 3 days.

Not all urinary tract infections are caused by E.coli bacteria. If you try a course of D-Mannose and infection persists it is not likely caused by E.coli but some other pathogen or pathogens, like Proteus or Staph (5 to 15%). In this case you might want to use Pure Essential Oil of Wild Oregano. Try to buy 100% Oil of Oregano and some gel capsule to ingest otherwise you might be dancing around the kitchen for half an hour.

 

The xanthones in the mangosteen fruit have a proven, natural antibacterial effect, so dependence upon antibiotics can be eliminated.

 

Freeze dried acai has free radical scavenging benefits that is reaching the attention of people far and wide. It also inhibits the cell membrane of certain bacteria.

 

D-Mannose is beneficial for only one thing to clear up a bladder infection. Acai puree/juice blended with 19 fruits thoughtfully formulated on the other hand has several health benefits.
