Hi. Dr. Minkoff here.
One of the problems with regular medicine
is that there’s always a drug for the solution.
Now, what did people do for all of human history
before the late 1940’s,
when sulfa antibiotics were invented,
when they had a urinary tract infection?
What did they do?
They didn’t die.
They had solutions for this
and they figured it out.
Right now, if you go to your doctor with a urinary tract infection,
you are gonna get prescribed an antibiotic.
100% of the time.
And while it may sometimes be necessary,
many times it’s not necessary
and there are natural ways to handle it.
Now, about 95% of urinary tract infections
are caused by a bacteria called E. coli.
The E. coli is a normal part of the colon flora
and since usually urinary tract infections
are most common in females,
the distance between the rectum and the vagina
and the urethra is very close
and depending on how a person’s habits are
when they wipe themselves
after they go to the bathroom,
you can contaminate the opening of the vagina
and thus the urethra, with E. coli.
The distance from the tip of the urethra
to the bladder is very short.
It’s probably, maybe an inch.
So, these bacteria can travel,
the membrane is what they can travel,
up into the urinary tract
and they can cause infection.
Now, a really simple way to handle this,
especially if you catch it early,
actually, let me back up.
Your mom probably told you,
when you wipe yourself after you have a bowel movement,
from front to back.
Don’t go back to front
because the chances of you pulling
some of the contaminated paper
close to your vagina, is higher.
So, it’s one wipe and down.
Front to back.
Drop it, get a new piece of paper if you need more.
Now, if you start to feel the feelings of
you’re getting an urgency to go.
You’re having to go more often.
You feel pressure in your bladder.
As soon as you get those,
you want to increase your fluid intake by a lot
because we want lots of urine flow to wash this out.
Now, what the E.coli do when they get in the bladder
is in order to cause an infection,
they have to bind
to the inner lining of your bladder cell
and if they attach there, they cause the infection
So, if you have lots of urine flow,
the bacteria get washed out more
and then there is a simple supplement
You can buy it in the health food store.
It’s an over-the-counter product
on its surface, it’s a sugar,
it’s a non-nutritive sugar
and it can be cut.
You could take it as capsules or you could take it as powder
but if there’s a lot of D-mannose in the bladder
when the E.coli are there,
they will bind to the D-mannose
and not to your bladder.
And then when you drink a lot they get eliminated.
So, if you get it early,
you start taking D-mannose.
You can buy this in the health food store.
A gram and a half,
probably 3 times a day.
Right away, lots of fluid.
If you take some apple cider vinegar
along with it,
you will acidify your urine.
And if you do this for a few days,
you’ll find that the symptoms go away.
I like to continue the D-mannose
until you have no symptoms for 3 days,
then you could stop.
Now, if you take too much D-mannose,
you could get loose stools.
So, while a gram and a half is the usual amount,
your body may be able to take only a gram.
The idea is though,
is get it in your bladder.
I wouldn’t take it in the middle of a big meal.
The capsules usually come 500 milligram.
Take 3 of these capsules,
big glass of water,
wait 15 or 20 minutes,
then if you’re gonna have a meal, eat.
Do it 3 times a day.
If your symptoms go away
and you feel good,
you’re probably fine.
Now if you start getting fever, back pain, real sickness,
now you have to go to the doctor.
You may need an antibiotic.
So, we’re trying to treat this naturally.
Probably 75% of the time,
you’re gonna duck it.
You’re gonna miss it.
It’s not gonna happen.
And if you do that,
you can bypass taking an antibiotic
because we want to take as few antibiotics as we can
because it will disturb a lot of other stuff.
So, first signs of a urinary tract infection.
Lots of water.
D-mannose as I described.
Wipe front to back
and let’s avoid taking antibiotics.
Hope this helps.

Conventional medicine has a drug for everything and mostly they mask symptoms and leave the underlying conditions unresolved. UTIs are a perfect example of this. Have a UTI, your Dr will 100% of the time prescribe antibiotics. Antibiotic use though necessary on occasions, usually can be avoided and as we discussed in an earlier piece, cause depression and anxiety and staggering rates.
Dr. Minkoff took an oath to do no harm and can not and will not resort to potentially harmful drug treatments when they can be avoided. In this video, Dr.Minkoff explains UTIs, and natural safe ways to effectively treat them so you can keep yourself and your family safe.
