I didn't find it anywhere where I can post my information, other than bladder infection, but I'm talking about UTI's not bladder infections..or Cystitis.  

I discovered that when I stopped using the magnesium oil, my UTI symptoms all cleared up!  :o
I know members here are using the magnesium oil with no problems but I had to post this because in case anyone is using mag oil and having an increase of UTI's occur, I wanted to let them know this happened to me. I take calcium and magnesium orally anyway.  All my trouble with UTI's started when I started using magnesium oil. I figured it out because I forgot to use it one day and realized I had no UTI symptoms, and as soon as I started using it again, the symptoms came back.  Whether it's feeding the bad bacteria as well as the good.. IDK. ? It could be causing a dehydration. I drink a lot of water to start with. Or, it could just be knocking my body chemistry off balance.  I was always prone to UTI"s so I know how to prevent them. When my usual prevention methods don't work, I know there's something wrong. So..yeah......FYI.  :)

Is there a difference between UTIs, bladder infections and cystitis?  When I had my one and only
UTI, it was cultured for 4 days and shown to be e coli.  Have you ever had a long culture done to specify your bacteria?

Did you put the mag oil into the bath water or did you spray it on?

I didn't know this before reading this, but there are upper and lower UTIs.  

According to the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), urinary tract infections (UTIs) account for more than 11 million physician visits annually in the United States (Howell et al. 2002). UTIs may be caused by bacteria, viruses (herpes simplex Type 2), fungi (Candida), and a variety of parasites (worms, protozoa). Unfortunately, UTIs have become increasingly resistant to first-line antibiotic therapy. There are two types of UTIs: lower and upper.

Lower UTIs occur in the urethra or bladder and are more common in women than in men (because the female urethra is much shorter and provides less of a barrier to bacterial invasion), with as many as one third of all women experiencing a UTI in their lifetime (Valiquette 2001). Urine that is in the bladder should be sterile. In healthy adults, however, the large bowel is not sterile and bacteria coming from normal intestinal flora can pass into the bladder. When large-bowel bacteria colonize the bladder, the result is cystitis or a bladder infection.

Cystitis or infection of the bladder are common examples of a lower UTI. Although rare in young men, cystitis can occur in men as a result of urethral obstruction from a prior infection of a sexually transmitted disease or from a congenital defect of the urethra requiring surgical correction.

Upper UTIs are infections that involve kidneys (pyelonephritis), ureters (ureteritis), or both. Upper UTIs can occur in both men and women as a complication of a lower UTI. Upper UTIs can also arise without lower urinary tract involvement. The latter may occur in younger women or men as a result of an obstruction somewhere in the urinary tract. Examples are a kidney stone or abdominal tumor which obstructs the ureter. Symptoms of an upper UTI include fever, chills, lower back pain, nausea, and vomiting. The most common organism causing the infection is a bacteria named Escherichia coli.

Although men are not generally prone to lower UTIs, they can develop upper UTIs as they become older because they cannot fully empty their bladders as a result of prostatic enlargement. Urine cannot remain sterile when it stays in the bladder for long periods of time. In elderly men, this evolves into full-blown urinary retention, a condition in which a liter or more of urine may have to be drained via a catheter. Urinary retention is potentially very serious and can result in urosepsis, a condition in which overwhelming disseminated infection invades the bloodstream. Urosepsis can be fatal.

One of the more common predisposing factors for UTIs is diabetes mellitus: spillage of glucose into the urine as well as other factors provide a good culture medium for bacteria (Patterson et al. 1997). Other causes include improper bladder emptying from neurological diseases such as paraplegia; valve leakage between the ureter and the bladder; and indwelling urinary catheters that are left unchanged for too long a period of time. The underlying cause of any UTI must be properly diagnosed and promptly treated.

I don't know about the UTI but I find peppermint tea to make a big difference..

I also think all the water I drink is part for nothing.. I see few benefits..

for O peanuts will give you in infection..

I have as of late a different issue.. I seem to not have the same flow, and in fact it stops in between, I seem to have no muscle control to get the urine out - just have to wait until it drips out.. anyone have on idea about that?

I wonder if it comes from my diabetes meds? Medformin.. sorry to hijack this thread for a different issue.

Goldie, I think something as simple as bromelain would help you.

Goldie, What you have may not be the same as what I think happens to me. I have mornings where the urine flow is much lighter, and some slow dripping and takes much longer to come out.
I am pretty sure it is when I have eaten something that has caused inflammation.  I say this because before Blood type diet I felt at times I was having a bladder issue but the urine test showed nothing.  And now that I've made so many changes to my diet I find rarely do those old issues come up. As Policy checker says Bromelain would help. Or pineapple if it is on your list.

UTI is an infection in the urinary tract. Cystitis is a bladder infection. They are two different things. ..usually a UTI that isn't checked will develop into cystitis and then a kidney infection..as the bacteria work their way up the genito urinary system.   A cliff notes version of your long post. :)

That's what caused my UTI problem..applying mag topically.  :-/  I also take it orally so maybe I was over mag'ing myself ?

I sprayed it on my stomach before bed each night. Every place else itched too much. Maybe 4-6 sprays

seems that the intake of dl-methionine or simplemente methionine can do the trick against all kinds of bladder infections ;) ;D.....(dance)(smarty)(clap)(ok)and the most important here : p r e v e n t i o n !!!

My normal doctor is on Holiday (as usual) lol, so I'm going to see a new one on Tuesday night re my UTI / Bladder / prostate. oh what fun.


I'm taking bets on what will be recommended.

1 - Antibiotics
2 - Flomax or similar.
3 -

thoughts.

The surgery is now open in the evening (like they can't do enough damage during the day ;) but as it happens my stomach will be at it's peak at about that time, so perhaps they will realise what's going on and be able to diagnose me properly.

although it's becoming pretty obvious to be.

Thanks Chloe for that post earlier, although I contributed to this thread earlier I must have missed that bit about esherichia coli. very helpful

It would seem pretty obvious that I have an upper Urinary infection caused by urine retention. caused by BPH. probably caused by either mercury / heavy metal overload from amalgams. (possibly from having teeth whitened 10 years ago, using 20 hydrogen peroxide/ they made my mouth go grey for a week before I stopped. time frame is about right. plus a bit of normal ageing, plus too much sugar  perhaps even pre diabetes. also ties in with vision problems

now to sort it out I'm thinking. to avoid urosepsis. lol what a wonderful life.

see if i can't get a free catheter ;)

Chloe, I learned some things I didn't know about these conditions from your post- especially the concerns that tend to arise as we get older. Another thing that was startling is the COST of these conditions! Wow!
