Bladder + Urinary Health + Natural Care
- Inflammation in the urinary tract can occur when bacteria causes inflammation from the kidneys to the bladder to the urinary tract. Pyelonephritis or kidney infection is a serious health issue and must be treated quickly by your doctor. Urinary Tract Symptoms arise for many women after they have sex or early in marriage. I believe also that kidneys and urinary system are constantly subjected to eliminating toxins that the body breaks down so supporting the urinary system is important.The first priority is to eliminate the toxins and bacteria to reduce the inflammation.
- Candida is another health issue that is considered controversial because many conventional doctors do not recognize it.Candida is a term given to a complex set of symptoms that result from intestinal overgrowth of a fungus-like organism called Candida albicans. Issues arise when the overgrowth begins to be substantial enough to cause symptoms. Overgrowth of yeast can contribute to chronic UTI.
- Diabetes or consistently high blood sugar can lead to UTI problems. Keeping blood sugar under control with proper diet is important to urinary tract health.
- A food allergy, or hypersensitivity, is an abnormal response to a food protein that is triggered by the immune system. The immune system is not responsible for the symptoms of a food intolerance, even though these symptoms can resemble those of a food allergy. The protein in food is the most allergic part and the immune system thinks that this food is harmful and a cascade of events occur causing food allergy symptoms. For example, being allergic to milk (casein allergy) is different from not being able to digest it properly due to lactose intolerance (due to lacking the lactase, the enzyme need to break down lactose). The most common food allergies are: gluten, casein, egg, corn, soy, citrus, and peanuts. There are two types of food allergies: Anaphylactic or immediate (symptoms would be hives, asthma, distress, difficulty breathing) and Masked or “hidden”. Managing food reactions is important to reducing inflammation in the body.
