How to cope with ‘space invaders’ where they are not needed

The Good Life Letter 

5th March 2017

A few weeks ago I sent a newsletter out saying how bad us blokes were at highlighting poor health, especially when it came to matters in our underwear... the time I was referring to a need to consider the prostate gland but in my mailbox a few days later I was surprised to receive several emails asking about my advice for another malady affecting the same area.

Now before you jump to conclusions that I am going to be promoting strange potions to revive your virility or grow your assets that is NOT what the Good Life Letter is for – and besides if you are anything like me I get enough emails offering me exotic remedies for that kind of stuff!

No, the issue that many of you wanted to highlight was the problem of recurring urinary tract infections as a result of either treatment for other problems or directly as a result of biopsies etc for the prostate.

This might come as a surprise to many as these type of infections tend to be more commonly associated with the fairer sex, but this is not the case and today I want to give you all the advice I had to offer to those in need.

But this isn’t one just for the men, it also is a remedy much in demand for women too.

For anyone who has suffered a bladder infection you will be no stranger to the pain, discomfort and fever that are associated with them.

It may surprise you to learn that 90% of all infections are caused by one type of bacteria which invades the urinary system and then proceeds to party.

This bacterium known as Escherichia coli, or more commonly as E.coli, is a really important member of our gut flora, which helps protect against inflammatory conditions developing.

So, in their right place, namely the lower part of the bowel system, E.coli are true friends.

However, as a result of a minor indiscretion in personal hygiene i.e. not washing your hands after toileting (or helping your children toilet) these helpful creatures suddenly turn very nasty.

Once in the urinary tract they attach themselves to the walls of the tubing and bladder and quickly multiply in the warm, nutrient rich contents.

Once established they cause inflammation of the walls and allow them to become further irritated by the toxins in the urine we are trying to excrete.

All very graphic I know, but I think you can see the reason why these types of conditions can very easily cause upset.

The real problem comes when you present at the GP for antibiotics to treat the infection.

Did you realise that this traditional approach may be leading to a much bigger problem?

Let me explain.

The birth and growth of the superbug

It has been well documented that frequent use of antibiotics can produce antibiotic resistant bacteria.

So in spite of their clear importance in combating infection, overuse of these medications could seriously affect your body’s inherent healing potential, which in turn will compromise long term health.

This means that as the natural population of E.coli becomes more and more resistant to control, then these infections will become increasingly difficult to overcome.

The effect of which seems like an awfully big health time bomb to be priming.

Thankfully Mother Nature has a few tricks up her sleeve – and here is just one of the most effective ones.

Rather than aggressively scouring the bacteria out of the tissues like antibiotics do, why not tempt them out with the promise of richer pickings?

Think about the way the child catcher in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang went about his business.

He would roll into a village, dress his trap up like a sweet shop and ply his victims with toffee apples, candy floss and multi-coloured lollies until they were safely locked behind bars.

Let me introduce you to the equivalent of Roald Dahl's* character in a natural remedy known as D-mannose.

This naturally occurring sugar is the equivalent of crack cocaine to the E.coli invaders – they simply cannot get enough of it.

The subtle art of cleaning out the bad guys

D-mannose is processed and eliminated by our bodies very quickly.

It travels through our digestive system and arrives into our bladder via the kidneys.

The E.coli previously attached to the bladder wall and multiplying in the bladder, interact with the D-mannose, forming an even better bond with it than they do with the bladder wall, and become mobile.

They can then simply be washed away during urination.

D-mannose is a pure and natural form of glucose, similar to a type already produced by our bodies, but which for many of us is not enough.

It is a simple sugar supplement which many people worldwide use every day to help against these irritating and debilitating infections.

Perhaps the best news is that D-mannose has no known side effects or drug interactions and can be used by adults, children and even family pets as a food supplement.

I was able to pass all of this good news onto my poor suffering readers who I hope have taken the necessary steps as time is of the essence here.

*The eagle eyed among you may be reaching for your keypad to tell me that Chitty Chitty Bang Bang was written by Ian Fleming (yes of James Bond fame) rather than Roald Dahl. However, the child catcher was never a character in the original book, but introduced when Dahl wrote the screenplay for the 1968 film...which rather makes the awarding of the ‘scariest character in children's books’ prize in 2005 a bit of an anomaly!
