Urinary Tract Infections, Animation.

August 14, 2019

A urinary tract infection, or UTI, is an infection
in any part of the urinary system — the kidneys, ureters, bladder and urethra. An infection of the urethra, or urethritis,
may cause burning sensation when urinating and cloudy discharge. A bladder infection, or cystitis, may result
in pelvic pain, frequent, painful urination, and blood in urine. A kidney infection, or acute pyelonephritis,
may cause back pain (possibly only on one side), high fever, chills and nausea. UTIs typically occur when bacteria enter the
urinary tract through the urethra and multiply in the bladder. Most commonly, these bacteria come from the
digestive tract through fecal matter. UTIs are more common in women because of their
anatomy. Specifically, the short distance from the
A to the opening of the urethra and bladder makes it easier for the bacteria from the
digestive tract to reach the urinary system. This is why the most common UTIs occur mainly
in women and affect the bladder and urethra. Other bacteria may be brought over with S
contact. Women who use certain types of birth control
such as diaphragms or spermicidal agents are more at risk. Hormonal deficiency during menopause also
makes women more vulnerable to infection. Infection limited to the bladder can be easily
treated with antibiotics. However, if left untreated, a lower urinary
tract infection may spread up to the kidneys where it becomes more dangerous. A kidney infection may result in permanent
kidney damage. In rare cases, an infection may also spread
to the bloodstream and can be life threatening. Urinary tract infections can be prevented
following these steps: – Drink plenty of fluids – to flush out
bacteria more frequently. – Wipe from front to back after a bowel movement
– this helps prevent bacteria in stools from spreading to the urethra. – Empty the bladder soon after I to flush
bacteria. – Avoid feminine products such as douches
and powders, which could irritate the urethra. – Avoid diaphragms and spermicides as birth
control methods

    On first symptom of a UTI (I start feeling extremely uncomfortable and cannot relax or think of much else) I down a 1 – 1.5 glasses of water as quickly as possible, even if I've been drinking water regularly throughout the day, 20 minutes later I feel back to 'normal' & begin urinating adequately (not a tiny bit at a time every 5 -10 mins). Works everytime!

    I just keep peeing but it doesn’t burn everytime, does that still mean it’s a uti?

  • Reply Destany May 19, 2018 at 6:24 pm

    I need advice. I was treated for a uti a month ago. I think I have one AGAIN. but this time I'm not urinating much at all. I feel burning when I do.. I don't understand how I have one. I keep the area very clean. Feel like I have been hit by a truck. (ill) Haven't been to dr yet.

    I take each and every day (3) 500 mg Vitamin C each morning. (2) AZO cranberry tablets during the day. Then just (1) anti biotic pill Doxycycline hyclate100 mg tablet every 3 days, that's only one every ~ 72 hours only. This stopped my uncontrolled UTI's after two family doctors and two Urologist could't. They were set on just different anti biotics which slowly lost there strength on me. I was dying. Losing weight. Germs don't like the environment I've created in my bladder by this self designed program. I'm a engineer. Please pass this treatment along to others, its very inexpensive and easy to do. Note; germs can mutate or adapt to just one ingredient but by my system the germs have to mutate
    to all three and that, for me, stops them. Must do this diet everyday and a couple years later, still no recurrence of UTI's.

    Even a healthy anus has many ditches and wrinkles to be able to get well cleaned by wiping with t. paper or wet wipe, no matter its direction. Things get much worse if there are hemorrhoids or hairy anus.

    Use a vertical water jet bidet and save yourself from a probable UTI, or Nosocomial Infection.

    "Reduce the fatal fecal dust around us.Don't rely on fake medicine".

    HAI: Each day, almost at every Hospital, an unbelievable fact, for our clever and civilized society, is taking place. A neglected up to now, SOURCE of dangerous microbes, that are contained in the feces residue, left after each wiping, is spreading millions of microbes to Hospital air (and we should note that the often debilitated patient in Hospitals is not able even to wipe properly, more so if he has HEMORRHOIDS or HAIRY ANUS). This feces stuff, through drying and friction, is turned out to dust, that ends to fly all over at the ward and hospital air.

    UTI: The same mechanism it applies for UTI. The only difference is that contamination is caused by each patient’s own microbes.

    How do you explain it???

    Not a scientist have ever doubted FECAL DUST's existance and its role in microbe dispersion, however no hygiene measures are imposed.

    “ FECAL DUST: It comes from fecal residue, left after incomplete wiping. Through drying and friction it turns out to dust, going to all surfaces. That is more intense in hospitals, as the patients are usually debilitated, weak, with mobility restriction etc, particularly if there are hemorrhoids or hair. It could cause Hospital Infection, UTI, food contamination.

    It seems to me the fecal dust theory is so evidently right, that needs not any proving. ”

    “Is it a good science to have so many research done on how to kill e.coli etc and not ONE on how to prevent fecal dust forming, which disperses around those microbes? Isn’t it CDC's or WHO's duty?”
