Urinary Tract Infection


Urinary tract infection symptoms are unpleasant at best. UTI’s are mostly found in women. They are bladder (cystitis) and kidney (nephritis) infections usually caused by the introduction of bacteria into the urethra. Infection is easily transmitted because of the closeness of the anus, the vagina and the urethra. UTI's can also be caused by sexually transmitted diseases.

Besides drinking plenty of water to flush out the infection and improving hygiene for protection, various nutrients are also beneficial.

Here’s what you can do to help prevent UTI’s. Clean up your lifestyle. Stop smoking, decrease stress, exercise regularly and drink plenty of pure water. Water helps to keep the urinary system clean and functioning properly. After a bowel movement, wiping from the front to the back lessens the possibility of infection.

Avoid processed and fried foods, sugars, salt, alcohol, caffeine products, etc. Change your diet to a whole food program to improve your immunity. Eat organic whole grains, free-ranging meats, plenty of fresh fish and lots of colorful fruits and vegetables. And eat garlic regularly or take a good quality garlic supplement high in allicin – it helps to control nasty bacteria. Keep your fat consumption below 30% of your diet. For more information see Top Ten Healthy Habits For Youth and Regeneration.

Even when you do the best you can, it’s still hard to get everything you need from the foods you eat.

Get yourself on a good whole food, natural multi-vitamin complex. Increase your intake of quality essential oils, the EPA and DHA in the Omega-3 family. These beneficial fatty acids improve glandular and hormonal output which positively affects your overall health. Vitamin B complex helps your body handle the stress of daily life. Garlic (non-deodorized only) and Acidophilus complex help to maintain a healthy bacterial balance in your body. And vitamins A, C & E, selenium and phytonutrients are great antioxidants.
