(3) Alkalize urine / bladder
Alkalizing the urine helps neutralize a UTI by reducing acidity (raising the pH / alkalinity) closer to a neutral pH level (overly acid conditions are often present with a UTI).
• Take 1 tsp. baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) in 1 Cup water 3 times per day until symptoms resolve. The taste of this drink can be improved by adding the juice of 1/2 a lemon or lime and using soda water instead of plain water. If using liquid GSE, the drops can be added to this drink.
Calcium Citrate Tablets
• When symptoms are strong, take 2000 mg calcium citrate (2 - 1000mg tablets) per dose with 8oz water at mealtimes , three times per day until symptoms decrease, then take 2000 mg per day, until UTI is gone.
• Take at least 3 hours before bedtime. Since it may cause irritation as it sits in the bladder overnight;
Other alkalizing tactics
- Potassium citrate, magnesium citrate, or sodium citrate will also alkalize the urine
- Lemon/Barley water. Helps control infection ;
- A diet high in citrus fruit or vegetables can increase urine pH (make more alkaline);
- It is probably NOT a good idea to drink cranberry juice. If the offending bacteria is E. Coli (90% of cases), it will increase urine acidity, providing a “Happy Hotel” for E. Coli visitors.

"The medical kit of the future"
General electrotherapy health benefits. Used systemically and/or locally at specific problem areas of the body, its effective application has many benefits:
|Detoxification||Wellness / Healthy aging||Pain relief|
|Relief from insomnia||Immune system restoral||Anti-Inflammatory|
|Maximizes cellular energy production||Accelerated tissue /bone
|Muscle relaxation / rehabilitation||Increased blood oxygen
There are several reasonably affordable electrotherapy devices available for personal use. The following electrotherapies are those that have received a significant amount of positive feedback:
|Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) therapy|
|Near Infrared (NIR) class 4 laser therapy|
Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES) applies specific frequency patterns to the head area, with the following benefits:
|Balances neurotransmitters||Relieves pain||Treats depression|
|Substance abuse withdrawal||Relieves insomnia||Relieve stress / anxiety|
