January 9, 2019; by Briana McDonald (Silver Bulletin e-News Magazine) When I was in my teens I experienced urinary tract infections often and I couldn’t figure out how to keep from getting them in the first place. I really didn’t understand what I was doing wrong and over time, the antibiotics I was being prescribed weren’t nipping it in the bud as quick as they used to. I remember one night trying to sleep on my bathroom floor because I got so tired of making the walk from my bedroom to the bathroom every 20 minutes. Thankfully, in my early adult life I was introduced to the mineral Silver and I personally haven’t had a urinary tract infection since! If you’ve had one, you’ve had one too many, …but you too can naturally reduce your chances of suffering with UTIs.
- using spermicides
- using catheter’s
- those who have suppressed immune systems
- acidic body pH
- painful urination
- muscle aches
- pain in the abdomen
- cloudy urine
- pelvic pain
- confusion (in the elderly)
- pink or red urine
- a strong, frequent urge to urinate but barely being able to pass anything
- Drink a lots of fluids – this helps to flush bacteria from your system;
- Stay Clean and DRY- wipe front to back ladies— FRONT TO BACK—NOT BACK TO FRONT! as this moves e-coli to your urinary area;
- Wear loose fitting clothing and underwear to keep the urethra dry. We don’t want to trap any moisture which only allows bacteria to grow;
- Probiotics- flooding your body with healthy bacteria is a good way to keep from ever having another UTI, they help to prevent the overgrowth of microorganisms that lead to a variety of illnesses;
- Cranberry- animal studies have shown that cranberry products work by inhibiting the growth and colonization of bacteria that causes infection, including E.coli, the most common bacteria seen in UTI’s;
- Vitamin C- overall vitamin c which enhance your immune system and help to fight off anything– from the common cold and urinary tract infections to cancer;
- Boost your body’s pH to more alkaline levels (above 7.2 or so) with diet as bacteria and other microbes thrive better in acidic environments. In the event you do develop a UTI, you can boost your body pH within hours with a teaspoon of baking soda in 8 ounces of water on an empty stomach, but Do Not take with food or near mealtime as it will reduce your digestive juices.
