Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) - Causes, Prevent and Cure

Urinary Tract Infection (UTI)

About

The urinary tract

 

      Consists of the kidneys, ureters, bladder, and urethra

 

 

 

√     Kidneys – a pair of purplish-brown organs located below the ribs toward the middle of the back. Kidneys remove excess liquid and wastes from the blood in the form of urine, keep a stable balance of salts and other substances in the blood, and produce a hormone that aids the formation of red blood cells

 

         Ureters - narrow tubes that carry urine from the kidneys to the bladder

 

         Bladder - a triangular shaped chamber in the lower abdomen. Urine is stored in the bladder

 

         Urethra – urine in bladder is emptied through the urethra

 

         The male and female urinary tracts are relatively the same -  except the male urethra is longer

 

What is a UTI?

 

      A UTI occurs when bacteria enter the urinary tract and reproduce out of control

 

-       The main factor determining whether or not infection will follow is the strength of body's defense mechanisms at the time - Most infections occur because the body is not able to defend itself. 

 

      There are different types of UTIs depending on location:

 

         Urethritis – an  infection limited to the urethra, where most UTIs occur;

 

         Bladder Infection (Cystitis) - UTI spreads from urethra to the bladder;

 

         Kidney Infection (Pyelonephritis) – untreated, sometimes the infection can go up the ureters to infect the kidneys - a very serious condition.

 

                        √         Bacterial Prostatitis – male-only UTI causing inflammation of the prostate gland; 

 

 

Instead of a Bacterial Infection, your problem may be . . .

 

      Candida albicans Overgrowth

 

-       Candida albicans naturally occurs in your body, but gets out of control because of antibiotics, or antibiotic chemicals (E.g. chlorine in tap water, or sodium fluoride in toothpaste)

 

-       This yeast can invite the bad bacteria to take up residency by changing the pH of your urinary tract

 

-       Take Grapefruit Seed Extract (GSE) or a broad spectrum herb like Wild Oregano Oil (WOO) known to destroy yeast, viruses, bacteria etc.

 

 

      Interstitial Cystitis (IC), a.k.a. Painful Bladder Syndrome (PBS)
