If you are concerned about urinary tract infections (UTIs), you are not alone. About 1 in 5 women will experience a UTI at least once in their lives. One of the common causes of developing a UTI is sexual intercourse. It is not for nothing that UTI is also called the honeymoon disease. But you don’t have to be sexually active to develop a UTI. All women are susceptible to urinary tract infections simply because of their anatomy.
Many things could be said about the causes and symptoms of urinary tract infections, but the most important part I want to get to is the solution.
INTERVIEW BY SUZANNE SOMERS
A little while ago I read an interview by Suzanne Somers with Dr. Jonathan Wright, and loved the way this experienced and world famous doctor explains how D-Mannose works to heal urinary tract infections. He puts things very clearly, helping us understand vital processes that we all should be aware of for a better life.
WHAT CAUSES A UTI
Urinary tract infections are caused in most cases (90%+) by a little bacterium called E. coli, which is found in every living creature that has a colon. In spite of its being detested for the infections it produces, it actually has a positive role if it stays in the colon, since it helps to finish the process of digestion and also helps with some nutrient absorption. So this bacterium only becomes harmful when it gets into the wrong place, meaning the bladder or urinary system.
HOW A UTI DEVELOPS
What keeps the bacterium in the wrong place is the D-mannose, a simple sugar which is found here and there in the cells that line the bladder and which the E. coli likes very much. So it sticks to the molecules of D-mannose and then crawls to the next and the next, clinging to the inner lining of the bladder. Not only does the E. coli crawl and stick so well, but it also reproduces very fast, causing an E. coli population explosion, which, in our terms, is an infection.
SOLUTION: D-MANNOSE, A NATURAL SIMPLE SUGAR
And now comes the genius solution Dr. Wright came up with! Instead of fighting the E. coli using antibiotics to kill them, causing the bacteria to fight back and develop resistance, exposing the patient to side effects and other complications, Dr. Wright figured out how to make everybody happy. He gives the patients 3 to 5 grams of sweet D-mannose powder (a safe, simple sugar that by now is found in many health food stores as well as D-Mannose Websites), which the E. coli likes very much. Most of the D-mannose is not metabolized, but kicked out through the kidneys then into the bladder. Here, the bacteria are very happy to cling to these great swirls of their favorite D-mannose, leaving the bladder walls. You probably can guess what’s next: they are flushed out the next time the bladder is emptied. So, instead of fighting to kill the bacteria, the D-Mannose gets rid of the infection in a very short while by taking it out the easiest and best way.
Not only does this theory sound good, but it is also supported by thousands of people who testify about how the discovery of D-Mannose and the use of it has changed their lives. To see their stories follow this link: D-Mannose Reviews (see the bottom of the page)
