UTI- Women's Issues

Hello, what helps me is to drink lots of water. If it's bad I buy Cystex at Wal-mart. But make sure your kidneys are putting out what you are putting in. If not , and your holding, you will have to go to the Doc. Also follow the directions to the letter on the Cystex, it is a strong medication.

    Default UTI


    Hello, what helps me is to drink lots of water. If it's bad I buy

    to the Doc. Also follow the directions to the letter on the Cystex,

    it is a strong medication. It does not turn urine bright yellow like
    Azo does. Best of luck, Carol

    I like to say that anyone who does decide to do the cranberry juice method use
    the
    "100% juice" cranberry juice and not the concentrate. The cranberry juice
    cocktail concentrate has sugar in it and that is a no-no with uti's. My regime
    was plenty of water through out the day, a few cups of ursi urva tea, and "100%"
    cranberry juice. I was better in a couple of weeks.

    I would repeat the advice of several others. Do not try to treat this
    without a dr's help. I, too, suffered in my adolescent years from these.
    I have a damaged kidney that functions very little but dr's did not want
    to remove. Urinary tract infections can go into your kidneys and then
    you will have serious problems. Also sometimes we think we have a UTI
    but it could be something else with similar symptoms.

    Don't know about the cran grape thing, but I heard that it shouldn't
    have any added sugar if that helps.

    I got a hints page from another group that said to drop 2 alka seltzer tabs
    in a glass of water and drink it and that it will immediately go to work on
    a UTI...I don't know if it works but I guess it couldn't hurt?
    God Bless,

    I have heard that also but i thought it had to be at the beginning
    of the infection i have been battling this one for a week now.
    Do you know if it matters?

    It would change your body's Ph to a more alkaline level, which would inhibit
    bacteria growth. The acid/alkaline balance is very important to good
    health. If you eat white flour, white sugar, margarine, meats and dairy,
    and are not balancing these with lots of fruits and vegetables, you are
    guaranteed to be acidic.

    Drink water -- at least half your body weight in ounces.

    Lori, I have been in the emergency medical field for many years and also
    had in the past in my younger years a few UTI's one that was so severe that
    I thought that someone was stabbing my side with a hot sword, the pain was
    so bad that I could hardly move. The best thing I can tell you is #1 go to
    the Dr. they will give you pills for me it was little red pills and the next
    day I was feeling better. But I did get out 2 of my medical books to help
    you and anyone else that might have this problem. Bladder infections are
    caused by a bacteria and women subject to recurring infections average over
    1 episode each year. At least one-half of the serious aspects of the
    recurrences is that at it involves the upper urinary tract-the kidneys.
    Repeated kidney infections can cause permanent and progressive degrees of
    kidney failure. Bladder infections in men LOL are much less common, but I do
    know that it happens. A diagnosis is simple, a urine specimen is taken and
    cultured in the lab for id of the offending bacterium to guide antibiotic
    treatment. Also not that Symptoms of the bladder infection may be present
    with no bacteria found in the urine. The first line of treatment usually
    involves prescribing an antibiotic. Now I will also pass on your way since
    I go with the holistic prevention and treatment, since I don't like
    medication from the pharmacy's, they all seem to have side effects that I
    don't care for. So here it goes, this is what you have been looking for I
    think. Sugar inhibits bacterial destruction and should be avoided.
    Blueberry juice, which is hard to find, but you can buy frozen blueberries
    or canned, or fresh if you can find them, fresh is best. This is a natural
    antibiotic!!!Blueberry juice is preferable over cranberry juice since most
    all have sugar added and unsweetened cranberry juice is not very palatable.
    Next Alkalinizing the urine also is beneficial, this can be done by taking
    sodium citrate 3 times daily for 2 days and the best agents are calcium,
    magnesium or potassium citrate, the amounts of the elemental mineral should
    be 250 mg. four time per day. Other Vitamins and supplements that help are
    Vit. C take 1 or 2 grams 3 to 4 times per day, this is a high dosage but
    you will not maintain it since it will be voided when you go to the
    bathroom. Vit A helps fight infection and can be taken in lg. doses of
    50,000 I.U. daily for up to a week in adults and for 2 days in a row in
    children and infants. Don not take if pregnancy is a possibility!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Acidophilus and bifidus supplements correct imbalances in the vaginal flora,
    which when seriously damaged, tend to lead to both vaginal and bladder
    infections. Not food sensitivities can also cause bladder irritations
    without infections, this would be know if you were tested and no bacterial
    infection found, then it would be to elimination trial and a real challenge
    to find what food is causing the trouble. HERBS for UTI'S bearberry to
    treat bladder infections dosage in 1:5 tincture form: 1-1:1/2 tsp. 3 times
    daily. Goldseal, taken as a 1:5 tincture, 1-1/2 tsp. 3 times per day
    effective against many bacteria commonly involved, Gotu kola(centella
    asiatica) take 60mg. daily and juniper berry and cornsilk teas have
    therapeutic benefits. Professional Care Therapies, Homeopathy, classic
    homeopathic diagnosis and Rx. may be curative for recurrent cystitis.
    Remedies for Rx. include Apis Mel or Cantharis, Acupuncture can be a help
    for recurrent infections. Please not that relaxation practice will tend to
    improve bladder emptying and reduce the contribution made by urethral spasm
    and poor bladder emptying. Immune responses also improve with the practice
    of these skills. PLEASE NOTE: if you have any of the following symptoms for
    more than 24 hours contact you physician. frequent and urgent need to
    urinate, painful urination, cloudy urine, lower back or abdominal pain,
    blood in the urine, this is very important some mistreated UTI'S can cause
    more serious problems called acute pyelonephritis include fever, chills,
    nausea, vomiting, difficult and painful urination, groin pain, and midback
    pain. You will need medical attention ASAP. Last but not least drink lots
    of water all day long 8 - 10 glasses each day, and soda esp. Mt. Dew will
    make your problem worse. Also eat lots of yogurt with live acidophilus
    cultures it will say this on the label, and I know woman that eat it
    everyday just to keep UTI'S under control, eat lot of fruit oranges,
    strawberries, blueberries ( again) and kiwi, also red bell peppers and
    papaya are good and stay away for caffeinated foods and drinks and also
    spicy foods, tomatoes and alcohol. Sorry I have wrote a book, but this is
    such a big problem esp. with younger girls and if not correct it can cause
    more medial problems that can be a lot worse. Underline, go to the Dr. and
    have a test, and watch what you eat and drink. Good luck!! Blessings your
    way. Donna

    Be careful about the cranberry juice as it can cover up an even worse UTI. I
    have known several people who did this and ended up with kidney infections and
    in the hospital. Drink lots and lots of water and I suggest the cranberry
    pills you can get from the store. Also, try eating some good yogurt with
    acidopholus. But, really, you should maybe go to the dr. It might really needs
    some
    antibiotics to kill the bacteria. But, after that, make sure your water intake
    is good, you have good yogurt (this will help to kill all sorts of bad bacteria
    and if you do get antibiotics from dr, eat yogurt too), and if you do drink
    cranberry juice, it really needs to be the sugar free kind--too much sugar in a
    diet can lead to UTI's as well. If you are susceptible to lots of UTI's talk
    to your dr about other things you can be doing to help prevent them.
