How to Get Rid of a UTI (Plus, a DIY Bladder Soothe Recipe!)

How to Get Rid of a UTI (Plus, a DIY Bladder Soothe Recipe!)


Hi, I’m Jordan Rubin and this is Ancient Medicine
Today, brought to you by draxe.com. Ancient Medicine Today is here to teach you
how to use food as medicine. And speaking of medicine, the topic today
is going to help you out a great deal. We’re going to talk about the urinary tract,
more specifically, urinary tract infections. UTIs affect millions and millions of people
a year. Women are more affected than men certainly. But men can have bladder infections and prostate
infections as well. And they’re painful. I’ve had them. I know. I want to tell you though that you can prevent,
and even better yet, treat urinary tract infections naturally. Now let me say this right up front. If you are experiencing a urinary tract infection,
if you have chronic urinary issues such as cystitis, interstitial cystitis, we are not
suggesting to replace your medicine with what we’re going to share today. If you’re dealing with a UTI you got to be
very careful because you can develop a kidney infection which can be much more damaging. If you’ve got a urinary tract infection I
recommend you consult your physician and we’re going to give you information that can help
alongside the medicine, particularly the antibiotic you may be using. Or if you are very early on in the process,
maybe give these natural remedies a try. So we’re going to tell you how to treat and
avoid urinary tract infections. And we have a Bladder Soothe formula to help
you overcome the condition once you’ve got it. And if you have frequent UTIs you’re going
to love this information because you can help prevent them. And after all, an ounce of prevention is worth
a pound of cure. Folks, if you’re somebody who’s watching and
knows right now five people that need to hear this information I want to encourage you to
click that Share button and click this link. Share the video with others, particularly
women, that you know need this information because I personally know people who have
four, five, even six UTIs a year. And they are really damaging to life and health,
etc. So let’s get started. Number one, avoid factory farmed meat. Now you might know that organic can be more
nutritious and have less pesticides, etc., maybe less GMOs, but did you know that factory
farmed meat contains small doses of antibiotics? That’s right. Most of the antibiotics in America are given
to livestock conventional chickens, beef, turkey, etc., eggs as well. When you consume factory farmed meat or when
you consume conventional meat in general, you are getting small doses of antibiotics. And what that does is it trains your microbes
to become resistant. When you have a UTI and it’s severe you might
need an antibiotic. The antibiotics won’t work as well with resistant
bacteria. So avoid factory farmed meat. Go for grass-fed. Go for local. Always ask about what the animals eat, and
if you want to be sure-sure, go for organic. Best of all, pasture raised organic. Grass-fed organic would be the ultimate. Wear loose clothing. This is probably obvious, but when you’re
dealing with a UTI and you’re dealing with bacteria and then there can also be yeast
as well, especially if you’re on an antibiotic, you want to wear loose clothing. Particularly when you’re dealing in the crux
of it because very tight undergarments and garments can create a warm moist environment
which is ideal for bacteria to thrive and that can cause UTIs. And think about the urogenital system. There are a lot of ways to contaminate that
area. So you want to be very careful when you’re
dealing with something. Some people that have recurrent UTIs know
that, “Oh, I’m starting to feel it. It’s burning when I urinate. I know what’s happening.” You want to immediately try to get loose clothing
on. Definitely utilize some of the principals
we’re going to share today. Number three, stay hydrated. People say to me, “Jordan, if I have the first
onset of a UTI what should I do?” I can tell you what to do. This is a great kidney cleanse, urinary tract
cleanse, and it works in minutes. I encourage you to get distilled water. You want water that has very little minerals
in it and you want to drink a quart or liter, those are basically the same size, of pure
water as quickly as possible. Now some people are small and drinking a quart
or a liter or water is cumbersome. It makes you feel super bloated, but here’s
the deal. Even if you’re starting to burn a little bit,
drink a lot of water, get that stuff out. You will do a great kidney and urinary tract
flush by drinking a quart of water as quickly as possible. Number four, consume probiotics. Probiotics are critical to balance the gut. When the gut is balanced the urinary tract
is balanced. If you have a UTI, and you are on antibiotics,
you definitely want to take a probiotic at the same time to prevent yeast infection or
to prevent something systemic. I recommend a probiotic with Sob’s, or Soil
Based Organisms because they are very effective at keeping yeast at bay and can be highly
antimicrobial. Look for a probiotic with fermented foods
included. And also eat some fermented foods. You’re looking right now at yogurt, cured
cheese, kefir, kavas, kombucha, cider vinegars are great. Probiotic foods are wonderful. If you’re intolerant to dairy obviously avoid
that. I’m Jordan Rubin here for Ancient Medicine
Today and we’re teaching you how to naturally treat urinary tract infections, how to avoid
them and we’re going to give you our Bladder Soothe formula for people who have recurrent
UTIs. Or they are dealing with one right now. Number five, garlic. Garlic is nature’s antibiotic. Consume garlic raw, roasted. You can make a tea out of it. Sure it stinks, but it doesn’t stink nearly
as bad as having a UTI because man, is that painful. Consume a few cloves of garlic a day. You can even consume up to seven cloves a
day in food, in tea, some people just chew it up and eat it. Not my taste, but you can do that. Garlic is very antimicrobial and antifungal. Get good sources of Vitamin C. My favorite
is lemon. Limes are great as well. Even though those seem acidic they will help
to change the bodies pH and are very effective for dealing with a UTI. It can also help flush the body out. When consuming Vitamin C, I recommend a whole
food form of Vitamin C or a fermented form, but if you’re someone who benefits from large
quantities of Vitamin C, I would get a Vitamin C that has cofactors and bioflavonoids, etc. And I think a 1,000 milligrams a day is probably
where I would go. I’m not a big 10,000, 20,000 milligram Vitamin
C guy. I’d rather do it through citrus and Vitamin
C rich foods, peppers, broccoli, etc. Lemongrass is amazing. I had some fresh lemongrass the other day. I put it in a cup and I poured boiling water
over it. Lemongrass infusion or tea is amazing. Lemongrass essential oil consumed orally two
to three drops two to three times a day is amazing. Lemongrass diffused, or just inhaling it,
is also soothing to the body. Particularly the urinary tract. And one of the stand by natural remedies for
a UTI is D-mannose. D-mannose is a polysaccharide, it’s a sugar
that actually prevents bacteria from adhering to the urinary tract. D-mannose is found in cranberry and that’s
one of the main reasons cranberry is good for UTIs. So consume D-mannose as recommended. Just buy a powder, consume it as recommended
one to three times a day. If you want more information specifically
on D-mannose or on UTIs, visit draxe.com for great articles. Here’s the biggest one, essential oils. Essential oils are tremendous to help with
the urinary tract. We’re going to share in a moment a DIY Bladder
Soothe blend, but it’s going to be really based on essential oils. Any of the antimicrobial, think the Italian
spices, thyme, oregano, sage is really good. High antioxidant oils such as basil, etc. Frankincense is great for inflammation and
the immune system. So is turmeric. Ginger is also great, soothes the gut and
the urinary tract, as does peppermint. Essential oils consumed orally and inhaled
are a great way to boost the body to fight the bacteria and ease the pain of urinary
tract infections. So here’s a big one folks, if you’re dealing
with a UTI right now, whether you’re on antibiotics or not, this is what I recommend you doing. Oil of Oregano. Oregano essential oil, particularly organic
oregano is one of the most powerful antimicrobials known to man. It’s also really strong. So we recommend taking a tablespoon of coconut
oil. You can also use honey as well. I think if you try both, and put five drops
of oregano oil, and just take it. You can do it up to seven times a day. Spread it out and it will really make a difference. Seven tablespoons of oil is a lot. But coconut oil is also really good for balancing
microbes, antiviral, antifungal, and make sure when you’re using the DIY Daily Bladder
Soothe that you take a powerful probiotic morning and evening on an empty stomach. We believe probiotics with SBOs, as well as
saccharomyces boulardii, are the most well rounded for UTIs. I’ve had great success coaching people with
UTIs using probiotics, using oregano oil, d-mannose, etc., you really can get great
results. And another good tip, if you’re dealing with
a UTI, definitely take a bath in lukewarm water as well as some soothing essentials
oils. Having a UTI can be really stressful. You don’t completely evacuate the urine. You’re afraid when you’re about to go because
it’s going to burn and it feels awful. You’ve probably felt it if you’re watching
right now. Folks, this DIY Bladder Soothe, also using
essential oils such as lavender, rosemary, etc., it helps to calm the nerves which will
also be really good for you. So I want to encourage you, if you have a
UTI, if you have recurrent UTIs, to follow these simple steps. Avoid factory farmed meat. You want to make sure that you avoid consuming
low dose antibiotics because when you need an antibiotic it won’t help as much. Wear loose fitting clothing at the first symptom
of a UTI. Stay hydrated, remember the Bladder Cleanse
Tonic, distilled pure water, 32 ounces, about a quart, as quickly as you can will start
the cleanse process. Consume a probiotic with SBOs on an empty
stomach. Double or triple the dose if you feel the
symptoms. Garlic is nature’s antibiotic. Consume that cooked, raw, you can even put
it in a juice. Definitely tastes interesting. Or ferment it. Vitamin C, whole food Vitamin C. Make sure
that it has cofactors. If you consume high dose 1,000 milligrams
is the most I recommend. Lemongrass herbal infusion or essential oils
is great for the body. D-mannose prevents bacteria from adhering
to the bladder wall. A great natural treatment for UTIs. And last, but not least, essential oils. You want to consume essential oils. You want to inhale essential oils. Think about the antimicrobial ones, oregano,
thyme, marjoram, hyssop, rosemary, sage, and basil are also good. Frankincense and turmeric are good for the
immune system. All of this can help you stop a UTI in its
tracks. I know how painful they can be. And if you’re somebody who has had UTIs, is
going through a UTI, or knows someone who does or is, please help us. Be on mission with us. Click that Share button. Take this video and send it around the world
because together we can stop the pain and suffering that urinary tract issues are causing. And we can even stop them before they start

Urinary Tract Infection: How you got it, how to prevent it & treatments

Urinary Tract Infection: How you got it, how to prevent it & treatments


Hey guys this is Dr. Sam and you’re
watching SwiftMedNZ. Today I’m going to be talking about UTIs – how you
get them, how to prevent them and how you treat them. A urinary tract infection or
UTI is, not surprisingly, an infection of the bladder or the Urinary Tract. In
women, it happens because we’ve got a very short entrance to our bladder, which
makes it very easy for bacteria or bugs to get inside. In men, it’s much more
uncommon to get UTIs and if you have symptoms please see your doctor. Because the treatment will depend on what the cause is. So, I can hear you asking me, “Doctor Sam, how do I prevent getting UTIs?” Okay, I’m gonna cut to the chase and
give you some practical advice of what you can do to stop getting them. First
thing is always wiping, good hygiene, so wiping front to back. The reason is
that little bugs from the back passage – the little critters that they are – can come
around the front and cause an infection really easily. So particularly if you’ve
had diarrhea, you’ve got to be very careful and always wipe front to back.
We used to always recommend Cranberry Juice and Probiotics as a great
alternative as something that can help. Unfortunately, new evidence has shown that this doesn’t work – it doesn’t prevent UTI. So it’s not
something we recommend, but if you find that it’s useful, please go
ahead and I don’t think it’s going to cause you any harm necessarily. Other
simple things; I do see young women who’ve got a bladder infection
after having sex, so just passing urine immediately after sex is quite a good
practice and useful habit that can help improve it. Other things that you might
want to consider doing are taking one hundred milligrams of Vitamin C or Ascorbic acid
once daily. There’s weak evidence that it does help prevent UTIs. Ural
sachets, you might have heard of them, they can be used to change the
acidity or the pH of the urine. These really work by
making you feel more comfortable, so often I do suggest trying the Ural
Sachets. Lucky woman can, again, drink their way out of it with water.
Eventually, after a week, the UTI has managed to pass through the system and the Ural Sachet has helped with that. If you’ve done all of these things, but
nothing’s working – we’re talking about Antibiotics. Which is often what is
needed in the next stage and I’ll talk about it. Treatment for UTI: it’s not all
doom and gloom – it’s actually really simple! What you can do yourself, first
thing, No.1 is drink lots and lots of water because that helps dilute the
bacteria and helps it flush out of your system. Some people can manage to ride it out and it might take about a week and they
just drink loads of water and it eventually goes away. Most of the time, of
course I’m a doctor so I see these people, but they’ll need treatment. The treatment tends to be antibiotics. There’s three main types, well actually there’s a lot of different antibiotics you can use, but there are
three main types that I always tend to start with. I’ll link them down below. They are Trimethoprim, Nitrofurantoin or Norfloxacin and they’re all very
specific for Urinary Tract Infections. The length of time that you’ll want to
take them varies. For Trimethoprim; you might want to take them for three
days, Norfloxacin is usually about five days, Nitrofurantoin is about seven days. So how long do they work? I hear you asking how long
does it take to get rid of this horrible thing the UTI? Well, it’s usually gone
within about a day. It’s really fast when they start working and if it feels like
it’s not working, then it’s probably that you’re not on the right antibiotic. It’s
really important though, and I can’t stress this enough, that you complete the course of your antibiotics that you take. The reason is if you don’t,
you’ll end up building up resistance in your system to those antibiotics so that
they don’t work the next time. So please just finish the course even when you’re
feeling better. Because, it’s really helpful to actually know it’s
fully gone and they’re not going to be resistant. The other thing to really say
is if you feel like you’ve still got fevers and shakes, that is the
big warning sign – that it’s actually not a bladder infection anymore, it’s
gone up to your kidneys! If you have those symptoms please see your doctor.
Because, what it will mean is you need IV Antibiotic treatment. If you enjoyed this

How to Treat Bladder Infection in Dogs || Home Remedies for Bladder Infection

How to Treat Bladder Infection in Dogs || Home Remedies for Bladder Infection


Hi everyone Welcome to our channel Today we will discuss how to treat bladder
infection in dogs. Similar to humans, dogs suffer from bladder
infections, making their urine burn and abdomen hurt. A bladder infection occurs when bacteria is
able to reach the dog�s bladder and rapidly multiply, resulting in inflammation of the
bladder. While its natural defenses try to fight off
the infection, the whole process becomes extremely distressing for your four-legged friend. If your dog is showing the above symptoms,
your vet may ask for a urine culture to identify the bacteria in the bladder. Once it�s been identified, antibiotics can
be used to treat bladder infection in dogs. However, giving your pet heavy antibiotics
is not always the best course. There are a number of natural ways to easily
expel the invading bacteria without any side effects. Here are the best home remedies to treat bladder
infection in dogs. Home Remedy # 1: Apple Cider Vinegar and Yogurt Apple cider vinegar by far is the best home
remedy for treating bladder infections in humans as well as their canine companions. Mix apple cider vinegar and plain yogurt in
equal quantities based upon the size of your dog. Mix it well and feed it to your dog. Home Remedy # 2: Cranberry Giving cranberry juice to your puppy could
also help relieve the pain and burning within hours. Depending on the size of your dog, mix the
appropriate amount of the supplement in your dog�s food. You can also mix it in some peanut butter
or cream cheese, making it easier and exciting for your pooch to consume it. Home Remedy # 3: D-Mannose D-Mannose is a simple remedy that can work
wonders for bladder infections in pets. Give 500 mg of D-Mannose to your dog 3 times
daily for 3 days. Reduce the frequency to 2 times for the next
4 days. Home Remedy # 4: Corn Silk Corn silk refers to the thread-like fibers
that cover the corn kernels on a cob. It can be used to treat bladder infection
in dogs. Give corn silk supplements to your dog for
1 week Home Remedy # 5: Keep Them Hydrated More water means more pee and thus faster
recovery. It is extremely crucial to increase the intake
of water in order for your pet to flush out the bacteria. Make sure that your dog has access to clean
drinking water. Change the water frequently and clean the
tray before refilling it. Add in some ice if the weather is hot. Some dogs love to suck on ice. Add in some kibble or berries to make the
water more enticing. If nothing has worked, trick your pup into
drinking water by changing the water bowl. A new shape or color will excite him to check
it out. If your dog is showing the bladder infection
symptoms, your vet may ask for a urine culture to identify the bacteria in the bladder. Once it�s been identified, antibiotics can
be used to treat bladder infection in dogs.

Can a urinary tract infection go away by itself? – Jean McDonald

Can a urinary tract infection go away by itself? – Jean McDonald


Sometimes the symptoms of a urinary tract infection can be reduced. This can be reduced by drinking lots of fluids, which dilutes the organisms and therefore the symptoms would be much less. There are other things that can be done, like drinking cranberry juice to sort of change the acidity of the urine. Also, one can have probiotics. A spoonful of one of these yoghurts can help to reduce the symptoms. Usually however, it’s important if one keeps getting frequent urinary tract infections that one sees a urologist, so that other investigations can be done to see whether
or not the patient is emptying their bladder and if there are any other causes of a urinary
tract infection. Example: stones in the bladder or in extremes,
in other circumstances, a bladder tumour. There are various medications that can be
given to patients to slow down the way that the bladder is actually functioning. These
medications are called anticholinergics. And these medications work by preventing one passing
urine as frequently as they were passing it. It would be good to actually see a urologist
who can decide on the various treatment options, depending on the type of incontinence that
one has.

What Causes Cats To Get Urinary Tract Infections

What Causes Cats To Get Urinary Tract Infections


hi Madelaine innocent here. Understanding what causes cats to get urinary tract infections will get you well on the way to both preventing this distressing disease as well as to heal it completely so it never returns Understanding the cause of disease is not in mainstream or even veterinary thinking. Everyone is more concerned about treating the effects of disease so it does take a quantum leap in your mindset to start thinking about causes. There’s no point in treating the effects of disease in any chronic treatment even though it can help in an emergency.For real deep reversal of any ill health the only way is to find out the cause of the problem and then take proactive action. Appreciation when dealing with causes doesn’t make anyone financially rich this is why it’s not in mainstream thinking. Currently the focus is all about material wealth not natural health. As a natural health consultant I’m very much aware that every cause of disease depletes the immune system. So it’s imperative to discover the cause of any disease to return your cat to the great health that is their natural right. When you don’t it’s the start of a slippery slope. The less healthy the immune system is the more diseases WILL occur. Not might. WILL It may be slow but it is guaranteed. Cats are very susceptible to all manner of renal health issues from urinary tract infections all the way to kidney failure and everything in between. The renal area is their weak link. It may start out by increased thirst, something few people would be concerned about. But it is to start of problems as cats are not natural drinkers. They should be able to get most of their liquid needs from their food. This can’t happen with dry food and despite loud protestations from the manufacturers (who are unregulated) and vets (who are bought) to the contrary, dry food is the number one cause of renal health issues in cats. From the poor quality ‘food’ if you can call it that (despite the price or the retailer), to the unnatural ingredients for cats, to the chemical content, all the way to the lack of moisture. It isn’t the only cause but it is a major contributo.r Simply stopping the feeding of this food can give your a cat many more years of life as well as saving you quite a few dollars. But good robust cat health isn’t as simple as swapping a dry food for a wet food. Yes it can make a huge difference for your ca’st renal health, which is why you’re here. But there are problems with commercial wet cat foods too. Appreciating what causes cats to get urinary tract infections is a great start to your awareness of naturally healthy cats. But to continue on this journey, to get more information on this very important, subject please feel free to check out my website www.NaturalCatHealth.com/renal

Recurrent Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs): Here’s What You Need to Know

Recurrent Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs): Here’s What You Need to Know


If you’ve had a urinary tract infection
(UTI) before, you know they’re annoying! You have to start running to the bathroom
more, it hurts to pee, and somehow you have to get antibiotics. UTIs are usually caused by bacteria, therefore,
antibiotics typically solve the problem. If your UTI symptoms do not go away with antibiotics,
you may actually have something called painful bladder syndrome and it’s worth while to
see your urologist to clarify this. UTIs are most common in women because women
have a short urethra, which is the tube you pee through. It’s only about 2-3 centimeters in length. Therefore, it’s not hard for bacteria to
travel across your urethra and set up shop in your bladder. Common risk factors for a UTI include: 1) Having diabetes. 2) Having kidney stones. 3) Being postmenopausal. 4) Some of you will
have the great fortune of having multiple UTIs in a year and this can really impact
your quality of life. My question for these patients tends to be,
do you notice a pattern of when you get UTIs? Flights, long car rides and dehydration tend
to be very common things that lead to UTIs because they reduce the number of times you’re
going to the bathroom. However, the most common cause is related
to sex. Why? We have a lot of bacteria between our legs,
there’s bacteria around the anus and it’s just not that hard for the mechanics of sex
to push bacteria into the vagina and urethra. What’s really important for a women is to
make sure that you urinate within 5 to 10 minutes after having sex. Why? This washes any bacteria out from where it
shouldn’t be! Unfortunately, there are all sorts of magazines
out there that support all sorts of rituals – there’s really no data to support one
ritual over another. Really, all you need to do is urinate after
sex. Sex can also cause small tears in the vagina
and urethra. This can reduce some of your natural defenses
to fight off infection. This may be from certain positions or lubrication. Regardless, if you’re running into this
problem, you’ll know it quickly since it’ll burn to urinate right after you have sex. General prevention strategies for a UTI include: 1) Staying well hydrated so that you urinate
every 2-3 hours. 2) When you urinate, make sure you wipe from
the vagina back to the anus. 3) Urinate after sex to wash out any unwanted
bacteria. 4) Consider more breathable, cotton underwear. Something I’ve found anecdotally helpful
for my patients, however, there’s no research to really support this. Now, you might be doing all of these things
and STILL be getting UTIs. In scenarios like this, cranberry can come
into play! Cranberry has an active ingredient that reduces
the ability of bacteria to stick to your bladder wall. There are mixed studies on how effective cranberry
is. However, the studies that showed support used
10-12 ounces a day of ocean spray cranberry juice cocktail. There are a lot of cranberry pills or supplements
on the market, of which I don’t tend to recommend since it’s hard to check on the
purity of their ingredients. Also, because it’s an unregulated market,
many of these pills and supplements are very expensive! If you don’t want to use cranberry, consider
using D-Mannose. It works in the same way by reducing the ability
for bacteria to stick to your bladder wall. Studies that were successful with D-Mannose
showed that using 2 grams in 200 ml (i.e. ~ 8 ounces) of water daily. If neither cranberry or D-Mannose end up working,
talk with your doctor about using an antibiotic. See if they recommend using a low dose antibiotic
daily or taking an antibiotic before “high risk” UTI scenarios (i.e. before sex, a
long car ride or flight). Both of these options can reduce your risk
for infections as well. For women who are postmenopausal, the loss
of estrogen reduces the strength of some of your vaginal and urethra tissue. However, a vagina estrogen cream can be really
helpful in giving you some of this tissue balk back for better natural defenses against
an infection. These are an handful of options to prevent
or get ride of UTIs. Please, see your doctor to talk about what
will be the best options for you moving forward!
