Curing Cellulitis Permanently

Posted in Cellulitis, and Cleansing

Since my bout with cellulitis, I searched online for a place to share my experience, and ended up posting on a website called patient(.)com. I made one post detailing what happened to me, and how I fixed it, and then made a few supportive comments on someone else’s post. I was banned from the site 5 days after I signed up. Without warning.

I e-mailed them to ask why, and was curtly informed that I was endangering people’s health. I didn’t tell anyone to go off their meds: I just suggested adding ascorbic acid to what they were doing. I guess that was too radical. (Yes, I did just roll my eyes.)

Sooooo, then I searched Facebook for a cellulitis group: what I found was horrifying. In a way, I should have seen this coming, because with all my UTI experience, I know how antibiotics destroy the gut biome and lead to recurring infections. Still, it was shocking.

Profiles in Power: The Real Role of Vitamin C in UTI Treatment

I know, I know…I threw some heavy shade on it in the Emergency Relief post. That’s because the vast majority of UTI’s are caused by the gram negative bacteria E. coli, which as I cover in The pH Connection, is highly acid-adaptive. Ascorbic acid Vitamin C, the most common form, is highly acidifying in the urine, meaning it’ll hurt more than it will help with an E. coli infection.

In E. coli, ascorbic acid is taken up and metabolized by a specific phosphotransferase system and a series of enzymatic reactions

There’s Vitamin C in the lemon juice you’re using to keep your bladder flushed out, so it’s not like you’re not getting any, you’re just not taking the acidic form.

While even alkaline forms of Vitamin C seem to have limited effect on most UTI bacteria, if you’ve had your UTI cultured and it’s caused by staphylococcus or strep, you should drop everything and go directly to ascorbic acid. In large doses it slaughters antibiotic-resistant gram positive infections with an enthusiasm that puts Mongol hordes to shame. I fell over this fact while I was searching for a cure for a serious cat bite infection.

Stop the Universe: I Want to Get Off

Or, “How to Kill Antibiotic-Resistant Cellulitis With Extreme Prejudice“.

This saga really all started when our family cat was brutally killed in our front yard, last fall. It was a beautiful Saturday morning, the first weekend in October, and some jerk let his two large, mean dogs run loose. Our cat was 10 years old, and smart, they must have caught her sleeping. Fast forward a couple of months…
I decided to adopt a cat for the children for Christmas, and found exactly what I had in mind: a fluffy orange male in dire need of a caring home. He was scrawny, he was sick, his fur was falling out: he was perfect. We named him Clyde, because the dog is Bonnie and I’m corny like that.

What does this have to do with cellulitis, you ask?
Wait for the plot twist: it’s coming.
