Water infections, also known as urinary tract infections and or cystitis affect both men and women. Water infections cause suffering to millions of people each year and range from a mildly uncomfortable episode to a life threatening condition. It is believed that one woman in five will develop an infection of the bladder in their lifetime. In men, water infections are less common but are equally serious.
The food we eat is converted into energy, and what is not utilised, the "waste products", are left behind in the bowel and in the blood.
The kidney and urinary systems keep potassium and sodium, and water in balance and remove urea from the blood. Urea is produced when foods containing protein, are broken down in the body. Urea is carried in the bloodstream to the kidneys, where it is removed.
A water infection or UTI (urinary infections) is a bacterial infection that affects any part of the urinary tract . When bacteria get into the bladder or kidney and multiply in the urine, they can cause a UTI. Symptoms can vary a lot depending on whether the infection affects the lower (bladder and urethra) or upper (kidneys and ureters) urinary tract.
The symptoms of lower urinary tract infection are burning on passing urine (dysuria) frequent need to pass urine (frequency), and a compelling need to urinate (urgency). The urine may also be cloudy with an offensive odour. The most common bacterial cause is Escherichia coli (E.Coli) which is normally useful and found in the colon, but Pseudomonas and Staphylococcus, amongst other bacteria, are equally possible causes. Particularly when a surgical instrument such as a catheter or cystoscope has been used. There are in fact a host of bacteria that can cause Water Infections, but it is believed that Ecoli is the cause in about 85% to 90+% of infections.
D-Mannose , used appropriately, removes Ecoli, Klebsiella and Salmonella from the body.
Xylotene is used against Streptococcus.
Wild Oregano Oil C80 works as a natural antibacterial against a range of infections in the body.
Manuka Honey has shown success against Staphylococcus.
Raw garlic is considered a natural antibacterial too to use when one has a water infection, but it is much better raw and therefore rather smelly!
