The pain relieving expert shares his knowledge and also suggestions for solutions on the topic: Cystitis aka Inflammation of the bladder .
Yes… the topic usually only becomes topical in autumn/winter. Does it still make sense to get a head start on information – a few months in advance? It definitely makes sense.
The symptoms can be described in a very simplified way: Depending on the severity of the inflammation: extremely annoying urge to urinate (even if the toilet was visited shortly before), the urine flows only drop by drop and with a painful burning sensation, burning and pain even AFTER going to the toilet, sometimes also with a reddish colour due to blood admixtures.
For those who are not interested in this topic – just don’t read any further. For all the others – note down questions and simply ask or forward / distribute the article.
The solution of orthodox medicine: Antibiotics. Of course. What else?
Bacteria or fungi that can trigger cystitis usually originate from the intestinal or vaginal flora, enter the urethra and migrate into the bladder. This is usually not a problem. The body’s protective mechanism regulates this excellently. If the body’s own defences are disturbed, this becomes a problem. The complete healing of the inflammation is the basis for preventing a chronic disease. For whom does this look familiar? A bladder infection is treated with antibiotics. Simple and quick. The symptoms disappear.
After a few weeks, the inflammation is back. This happens more often than you think. What do you think about prophylactic long-term therapy with antibiotics? Do these drugs have side effects? Of course they do.
Let’s move on to possible solutions:
At the first signs – drink a lot (about 3 litres a day, including bladder teas).
Before you start complaining – did what you did helped in the long run with your problems? No? What is the harm in trying?
Warmth. Avoid cold feet. Little to no sugar.
Blood sugar fluctuations can weaken the immune system. And in addition, sugar seems to really feed the bacteria. Any antibiotic intake damages the intestinal and vaginal flora and thus the mucous membranes. Therefore, it makes sense to rebuild the intestinal flora.
Food supplements that really help:
-Colloidal silver (high concentration 25 to 50 ppm) one teaspoon two to three times a day
– (at least one hour apart with meals)
Leave the silver in your mouth for as long as possible so that it can already be absorbed through the oral mucosa and only drink something after 10 to 20 minutes.
Do not mix the silver with water, but take it pure. (for 7-10 days)
-D-Mannose (use as prophylaxis and as therapy)In the bladder, the D-mannose binds to the bacteria that are responsible for the bladder infection and ensures that they can now be flushed out of the body with the urine. At least 2 g daily for 6 months
-Juice and Extract from cranberries
Drink pure cranberry juice (diluted with enough water so that you can drink the juice), about 300 ml daily.
-Bearberry leaves as tea
Tea made from bearberry leaves has an antibacterial effect on the urinary tract and can prevent cystitis from breaking out if the tea is drunk at the first signs. And I have now only listed 4… There´s more Questions?
Let me know. See you next time.
