Most antibiotics have side-effects, and less well-known side-effects that may affect a minority of patients can be devastating. Fluoroquinolone based antibiotics like Ciprofloxacin, have the potential to affect the joints, bones, tendons and muscles. Few people are aware that the muscles that may be affected include the heart, and the muscles of the eye. Broad-spectrum antibiotics are not usually considered a good idea except as a last resort. But they are commonly used on bladder infections and UTI before the urine has been properly cultured and the bacteria tested for susceptibility to narrow-spectrum combinations.
Meanwhile, the bacteria may gain in strength, colony size and extent of invasion. If not properly treated, a UTI may progress to the bladder and the kidneys in both men and women, and often on to the prostate in men. The bladder becomes infected from what may have initially been a simple urethral infection. Antibiotics taken orally sometimes fail to completely resolve kidney infections, so people end up in hospital on intravenous doses of antibiotics. In many cases this will kill the infection, but the side-effects can be serious. If the infection returns, as so often happens, it's probably going to require further antibiotic treatment. Eventually, the patient complains they are on endless cycles of prescribed antibiotics.
Using D-Mannose as a supplement at the first sign of trouble can often help maintain bladder health.
Stefan Paolicchi and Penny Roberts say it best in their own words...
Dear Anna, Do you remember?
I am Stefano Paolicchi, from Pisa (Italy), in the wheelchair, with spinal cord injury, with intermittent catheterization, and recurring urinary tract infections, forced to an overuse of antibiotics that created antibiotic-resistant strains. Using D-Mannose , I reported finally significant improvement. Now, I take every day your d-mannose as a preventive and I have convinced other paraplegics to take it. Thank you very much for the great aid that you have given to me with SAN MANNOSIO [Saint Mannose].
Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Your service and product are excellent. My package arrived on Monday mid-morning, and by lunchtime, I was feeling an awful lot better. My husband managed to get some at Sherlock Holmes Chemist in Baker Street London, and this tub is guarded preciously in my cabinet, just in case. I overheard someone in Tesco's asking about cystitis cures and just had to butt in and write down your product for them!!!! I've told many friends also. I wish you well.
