Question: My mother is 55years old. She is having frequent urination and prolapse. She had urine culture test. She is having citrobacteria present it is about intermediate level please suggest the treatment.
Urinary tract infections (UTI) continues to be one of the most common hospital acquired infections. UTIs caused by Citrobacter is an increasingly common urinary pathogen. Commonly prescribed antibiotics include amoxycillin and ampicillin, but they have high rate of creating bacterial resistance. Natural antimicrobials can come from different plants and herbs. Herbal antimicrobials can help treat a number of infections as well as improve mood, cognition, and decrease common issues such as UTI’s. Antimicrobials can be a helpful next step if symptoms persist after improving gut health with diet and probiotics. Use of various herbal antimicrobials can help to eradicate infections, and herbal options often come with fewer side effects than prescription antimicrobials. Herbal antimicrobials are most often taken over a longer period of time (a few months) than traditional antibiotics. Remember to also incorporate these other two steps as part of a succesful treatment protocol: Reset the gut with an anti-inflammatory diet and support the gut with a high quality probiotic such as CanXida Rstore which comes with 6 probiotic strains and systemic enzymes to further help get rid of biofilms. Drinking plenty of water and frequently peeing will help prevent the bacteria from migrating to the urinary tract and causing a UTI’s. Cranberry extract and D-mannose can also help fight vaginal infections since they prevent bacteria from attaching to the walls of the urinary tract. If you are experiencing unusual vaginal symptoms, such as itching, increased discharge, or bleeding seek MEDICAL help promptly.
Question: Is it safe to take the candida product if you have not been diagnosed with excess candida?
Herbal antimicrobials have a long history of safe use and when administered appropriately they can be very effective. Commolyn prrescribed antibiotics can cause dysbiosis, an imbalance in the gut flora by destroying the healthy bacteria in our guts allowing for more opportunistic bacteria to thrive such as Staphylococcus or Candida. Before you head straight into the ‘killing’ or the ‘weeding’ phase it is best to work on building yourself up. Going straight into the killing phase when trying to rid of something can come with side effects, even when using natural herbs, and more likely than not a lack of complete eradication of the pathogen. So first you need to build yourself up before heading into the antimicrobial phase. The first is to test!
Make sure to understand what you have to get a more targeted protocol. Next it is improtant to remove all offending foods and start adding more nutrient dense foods including antimicrobial foods (garlic, oregano, coconut oil), anti-inflammatory foods (flax, fish, leafy greens) and gut foods (bone both, cruciferous vegetables), you can then replace digestive enzymes and hydrochloric acid and repair your gut with a high quality probiotic and taking herbs and nutrients to help repair your gut lining (slippery elm, glutamin, marshmallow root). Make sure to get adequate sleep, exercise and hydration. Finally you can begin thinking about removing gut infections. Many herbs work together and specific protocols can be worked out with your Functional Medicine practitioner.
Question: Can I use Heather’s Tummy fiber which us organic Acacia with my CanXida for my candida? I put it in my protein drink.
Acacia senegal, or gum arabic, regulates digestion to alleviate diarrhea and constipation and soothe sensitive tummies. Acacia fiber is like fertilizer for your microbiome. Good gut flora can help you ease the symptoms of IBS by promoting bowel stability. Unlike bulking laxatives like psyllium husk, acacia won’t trigger irritable bowel syndrome symptoms like gas and bloating. Acacia is a natural prebiotic. It gives your own good gut bacteria the fiber and energy they need to keep digestion running smoothly. Acacia is perfectly safe to use with CanXida products such as Remove and Restore. Make sure to take the Remove antimicrobials a few hours (2-3) apart from acacia since fiber can delay the absorption of some of the herbal extracts of the formula making them less effective. You can takeacacia fiber with the probiotics in Restore at the same time.
