Chiropractic Care for a UTI?

Chiropractic Care for a UTI?

Of course not!...However, at Gallatin Valley Chiropractic our doctors can provide sound nutritional and supplementation counseling and, with that counseling, can provide a treatment recommendation for UTIs (Urinary Tract Infections).

UTIs are bacterial infections in the bladder, ureter, urethra and/or kidney(s).  UTIs are often recurrent or chronic and may be antibiotic resistant.  UTIs are more common in women than men.  Typical medical treatment is an antibiotic prescription.

There is a better way...a natural cure...without antibiotics...whether the bacteria is resistant to antibiotics or not!...

D-Mannose...there the secret is out!

Here's how it works...

The chemical configuration of D-mannose is such that our bodies do not process the D configuration of the sugar.   Because we do not process the sugar (D-mannose) into energy or fat, we excrete it through the kidneys and out the urinary tract...In one end, out the is safe for diabetics to use this therapy.

Here's the deal...the bacteria that cause the UTI prefer to bind to the sugar than the walls of our urinary tract; so, the bacteria adhere to the sugar as we pee it out...washed away.  Small clinical trials have shown D-mannose to be as, if not more, effective than antibiotics with no harmful side effects or the need to replenish the helpful bacterial in our bodies.

How to take D-mannose...add 1 teaspoon of D-mannose to a glass of water, juice or whatever beverage you choose and drink it on this every 2-3 hours...starting at the first sign of symptoms.  Continue taking 1 teaspoon of D-mannose, 3 times per day for a week after symptoms have resolved.  This is safe to be used as treatment or prophylactically and is typically effective for bacterial strains that cause UTIs (typically E. coli).  It is important to start this treatment as early as possible when symptoms are noticed or expected.

If you develop a full blown kidney infection with fever and exquisite kidney tenderness, either before starting D-mannose treatment or during treatment, then seek medical care promptly and, when they are prescribed, take antibiotics completely.
