ADVERTORIAL: DR. JOHN’S CORNER UTI’s and Mental Function Recently when a family member was suffering mental aberrations and pain, what we found was they were dealing with a urinary tract infection (UTI). Upon clearing the infection, the mental complaints as well as pain cleared up. Knowing this, the unasked questions remain, “How many people take medication for problems which aren’t the actual problem at all?” To complicate matters, these medications can actually aggravate the condition, creating more chronic problems. The common treatment for a UTI is an antibiotic to kill bacteria. What fails to be asked is, why’s bacterial overgrowth there to begin with? Bacteria grows on matter requiring to be broken down. Whenever membranes of the kidneys, ureters, or bladder are damaged and broken down from chemicals, either created internally or consumed, there’s opportunity for bacteria to flourish. The integrity of these tissues requires proper nutrition. When basic nutrients are missing, the integrity and restoration of these tissues suffer. Diets lacking an abundance of these nutrients opens the door to renal infections. Irritability of the membranes of the bladder and urinary tract due to malnutrition and chemical overload isn’t something requiring more chemicals. Stop poisoning the tissues and feed them with the appropriate nutrients required by these critical mucous membranes, and allow for appropriate healing. Many of the foundational tissue building nutrients like vitamins A, C, and E. are missing from fast foods. Also the essential fatty acids which help to strengthen cell walls need to be included in the diet. Things like soda pop and other high sugar foods damage the kidneys. DR. JOHN A.
