I would like to share with you a relatively recent and new understanding of the probable cause of BOTH CHRONIC AND RECURRENT URINARY TRACT INFECTIONS (UTI) in both women and men. In the average UTI the urinary bladder becomes infected with a bacteria and the body’s immune system fights it off or antibiotics or herbal / homeopathic treatment is undertaken and the infection is resolved. In some circumstances, however, the bacteria involved create a protective environment around them that protects them from the penetration of antibiotics, herbs and the immune system. This protective shield is called a BIOFILM and it seems to be an important aspect of why many resistant, chronic and recurrent infections are occurring throughout the body. For today, however, we want to look at biofilm colonies that take up residence in the urinary tract, usually in the bladder.
When there is a biofilm colony present there is always a reservoir of bacteria which remains in the body even after treatment for a specific UTI. The treatment may temporarily eradicate up to 99% of the infective bacteria while leaving a small colony safely secreted inside the
biofilm package . At this point the patient experiences no symptoms and feels that the infection has been cured. However, This remaining colony, though small, begins to replicate again when the environment returns to normal and builds the infection in larger and larger numbers until UTI symptoms return , treatment is initiated and the cycle begins again.

The key to successful treatment in these cases is to:
FIRST, destroy the biofilm so that the infecting bacteria have no where to hide! Use a natural antibacterial herbal formula to kill the now vulnerable bacteria in the urinary tract.
SECOND, boost your immune system. I offer an herbal formula that boosts the immune system and assists the body to naturally ward off infections. (link to my product “Tonify Immune” here).
In terms of FIRST STEP, natural treatment for biofilm infections, the following are recommended to dissolve the biofilm:
Drinking 2 cups/day of a tea made from the following :
The following are also recommend:
1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar, daily
Biofilms are also susceptible to metals, so the following are recommended as well:
Finally, there is a product that is designed to dissolve biofilms. Biofilm Phase-2 is a combination of bismuth subnitrate, alpha lipoic acid, and black cumin. This product is non-GMO and gluten free. It is Made in USA at a FDA cGMP Registered Facility.
