A Very Simple Explanation of What a Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) is

It occurs to me that I never really gave any sort of overview about what a UTI actually involves.

In a nutshell, it is an inflammatory infection of the kidney, bladder, ureters, or urethra... the parts of the body involved with urine.

You can get a UTI if you are predisposed-- stressed (this includes being pregnant or in hospital) and/or genetically-inclined to UTIs (kidney malformations, etc.)and/or eating very poorly and/or not drinking clear water and/or having sex with someone who has a UTI. Refer to the previous blog to learn ways to AVOID UTIs.

Why would I want to avoid any future UTIs?

  • I can't stand the pain

  • **
  • UTIs lower my resistance to other infections (and my immune system is obviously already compromised as indicated by the UTI)

  • **
  • chronic inflammation of the urinary tract can lead to more serious urinary tract dis-ease and illness, even death

  • **
  • When I have had very painful UTIs I am vulnerable to the "quick fix", such as
    heavy-duty antibiotics-- and everyone knows that these antibiotics kill off ALL bacteria, including the important helpful bacteria in our intestines. So, away goes the UTI symptoms, and here comes candida and other yeasty beasties. Ick!

  • **
  • For the above reasons, I fully support good preventative care. Take good care of yourself and thrive away from UTIs! Get More Info on UTI-Clear for UTI, Bladder Infections and Cystitis

  • God bless,
