If someone has decided to self treat, the best I can do is offer up the dangers signs to watch for, indicating that home remedies are not going to
cut it. I teach my entire family to self-treat and guard against infection. We don't link going to the doctors. Like that's just what I want to do,
spend all my time in a place the sick go and offer myself up like a banquent. But damn, I bet it is good for business, all those vectors and
transmission routes right in the waiting room.
Should he go to the doctors now, before attempting to allow his own body to fight the infection? I don't know the true extent of the symptoms. I'd
ask do you have a fever, pain level, nausea? Now I can offer him the trusted, "Better get yourself to a wellness check-up, pronto." Or I can respond
as I did in the above post.
UTI's are as ancient as we are. Our oldest records of cases come from ancient Egyptian papyrus. To state that no one can naturally treat and cure a
uti is a blatant lie. We have an immune system and an inflammotory reaction to fight infection, and thousands of years of trial and error with herbs
to aid us. Now if you've been convinced that modern medicine is the only answer, only cure all to infection - then god help us if our world ever gets
set back to befor electric.
I'm an advocate for home health and remedies. That is where wellness should start, at home. Right down to nutrition. I think all mothers should take
at the least cna courses, just for the benefits of learning CPR, heimellich, nutrition, and infection control. It would help empty the emergency room
of rudimentary illness and leave open space for, oh I don't know, emergencies. When you get sick, if home care is not enough - THEN - you take
yourself to the doctor. I'm not against medical care, I'm against it's abuse on a stressed society economically. I know when money talks morality
walks, but I'm a relic. I hang on tenaciously.
P.S. Also fresh blueberries from the garden are known to aid in alleviating UTI's Mugen.
