Profiles in Power: Horseradish

Posted in Cleansing, Infection Killing Protocol, Profiles, Supplements, and Troubleshooting

If you’ve been working the UTI protocol, and either your intestinal Candida is barely budging, or the bacteria in your bladder seems oddly unaffected by the natural meds, you’re dealing with a biofilm, whether produced by Candida, or the bacteria.

The presence of Candida biofilm is relatively easy to determine, as I’ve already mentioned in this Troubleshooting post. Many cases are easily eradicated by an activated charcoal cleanse, as outlined here, but in cases where there’s a significant past history of prolonged anti-fungal or corticosteroid use, the treatment is going to be somewhat more complicated. First of all, you want to stay on the Quick and Dirty Cleanse protocol, and you want to get horseradish root (benefits for the bladder and other systems found here) from your local grocery store, and a digestive enzyme supplement like this one. I haven’t observed enzymes to be very efficacious on their own, but paired with horseradish, they may be more effective. (take according to label instructions)

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

Posted in Cellulitis, Infection Killing Protocol, Profiles, Supplements, and Useful Tips

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.

Profiles in Power: Oregano Oil

Posted in Infection Killing Protocol, Profiles, and Supplements

This is one of those things that everyone swears by, yet I had virtually no luck with it when I first tried it. All of the anecdotes and research sounded very promising, but after taking a whole bottle of capsules and seeing little benefit, I dismissed it as another internet myth.

However, I realized later that both trials I made with it occurred before I discovered the gut/bladder connection. When I developed a post-antibiotic UTI recently, I had lots of oregano oil on hand due to trying it topically for the vicious case of staph. I did a quick charcoal cleanse and took OLE and oregano oil only, and drank lemon water.
That UTI was dead in just a few days.

Profiles in Power: The Unbeatables

I’m going to profile each of the most effective supplements, and do a post on each of the compound groups and how and what they kill, and then I’m going to write profiles of UTI-causing bacterias and cross-reference them so you know how to kill your infection no matter what type it is…and this post is the start of that. Listed in the graphic above are the most effective natural infection-killers. The things listed in the top two lines are the most effective killers, so make OLE, garlic, and cayenne your backbone, with ginger tea or horseradish or black walnut as adjuncts, if desired.

It is important to remember that the organosulphurs must NOT be heated, but many of the others can be made into tea.
The cayenne pepper and black pepper can be mixed into honey, 1/4 tsp pepper to one large spoonful of honey.
If you have any medical conditions other than a UTI, and especially if you’re on medication for them, please google anything and everything before taking it, to see if there’s an interaction you need to be concerned about. The terpenes cannot be taken with beta blockers, for instance. Necessary cautions and warnings will be listed in the individual profiles of all of these compounds and all of the posts will be in the same category for ease of perusal.

Profiles in Power: Olive Leaf Extract

Posted in Infection Killing Protocol, Profiles, Spending Wisely, and Supplements

If you’ve read the blog posts on UTI protocols, you know that OLE plays a central role in killing all kinds of infections. The active ingredient in OLE is oleuropein, which is a highly bio-available phenolic acid effective against bacterial, fungal, and viral pathogens. Combined with the fact that it’s completely non-toxic to human cells,

It is reassuring to know when considering olive leaf extract dosage, that it has very very low toxicity. (Even water taken in excess can be toxic).
In tests using oleuropein, one of the major active constituents, researchers were unable to find the toxic dose.* Other complete extracts used in animal tests and on human tissues had no ill-effects on the cells tested.
