The bacterium E. coli symptoms and treatment

E. coli; natural therapy

E. coli is probably the most widespread bacteria, and is one of the most resilient ones to antibiotics, and may cause very unpleasant intestinal and urinary tract infections, pneumonia, sepsis and meningitis. Sometimes it is treated for a long time because the drug therapy does not give adequate results (some strains of bacteria are resistant to antibiotics), but the problem is that the infection in many cases returns.

How is the infection transmitted? What are the symptoms of the disease and how it is carried out naturally, find out below.

Symptoms of E. coli are often missing

Normally E. coli bacteria is a regular inhabitant of the human intestinal flora, this is a very useful and important because it participates in the production of vitamin K and vitamin B group. The problem arises when immunity declines, while Escherichia is too spread or "wild" and then the first signs appear like fatigue, chills and fever.

An aggravating circumstance is that these typical symptoms of E. coli are often absent - except in the case of its high concentration in the body, but mainly in general we are not aware of infection. If you do not get treatment there are far more difficult health problems.

Escherichia can cause diarrhoea and dehydration, and if it reaches the bladder, it can cause the persistent inflammation of the urinary tract, which is accompanied by pain when passing urine with frequent and painful urination. Sometimes blood in urine appears. You will have a strong feeling that you need to pee, even when the bladder is empty. Sometimes the smell of urine is different which could also be a sign of infection. If the disease is not treated the inflammation goes to the kidneys.

E. coli in urine can diffuse into the urethra, where it later gets into the bladder and causes its inflammation - cystitis. If you are here and do not react at the time of maturity of the organs of excretion, ie. kidneys, which significantly complicate the treatment. With frequent diarrhoea -which is usually yellowish-greenish in colour, it often leads to dehydration of the body. Therefore, larger amounts of liquids are recommended.

If you have or suspect any of the above - the initial symptoms of infection, such as "false urination" a burning sensation or even the occurrence of blood, then call a urologist for review, in order to determine whether the Escherichia is the cause of urinary infections, and in time begin therapy.

If you are over 60-65 years and have been diagnosed with diabetes, previously have had kidney problems or are pregnant, there is nothing to wait for go to a doctor as soon as possible. Escherichia can cause very serious complications with the kidneys.

How is E. coli transmitted?

Many wonder how Escherichia is transmitted, and the answer is very simple; with dirty hands, inadequately washed food and contaminated water. If we do not deal with personal hygiene and hygiene at all in the right way, we will avoid infection in a very difficult way. Therefore, the recommendation of doctors is that we occasionally provide urine for analysis, so that we know where we stand. The bacterium E. coli in women is somewhat more common than in men, so ladies are recommended more frequent testing.

We give you some excellent recommendations for prevention
  • Always wash your hands over the running water, rub them well with soap, wash and wipe with a towel before preparing food, working with food, meals, always after urination and bowel movements, before and after changing diapers for babies, playing with a pet, etc.
  • Vegetables and fruits wash in the sink under a strong jet of water - depth and detail.
  • Do not let raw food get into contact with cooked food, to prevent contamination. Raw meat is put in a separate plate and never subsequently placed on other cooked food.
  • The boards on which we cut food, thoroughly wash, do not use dirty utensils.
  • If you are making a meal with minced meat, it is extremely important to process with the heat, at 70 degrees min.
  • If milk is not pasteurized, do not drink it,
  • Do not reach lightly for tap water, no matter how much your city government assures that it is clean and bacteriological correct. It is better to boil or use a carafe with filter for purification of the question and bottled water - which again is not cheap.
  • Do not let the food stand for a long time out of the refrigerator.

Extra advice: Recent studies of prestigious American universities show that one method was singled out as very effective in eliminating the bacteria E. coli from fresh fruits and vegetables. The method is very simple – dip for 5 minutes fruits and vegetables in vinegar solution, rinse under a strong jet of water and later use fresh.

For adults, the bacteria can be transmitted through sexual intercourse. E. coli in sperm is quite rarely transmitted from men to their female partners, or the transmission of infection is common in couples who engage in anal sex.
Diet with E. coli 

Treatment with medications, teas and other methods will not bring results, if we do not adjust our diet to healthy living. Suppose also that into this time there is no person whose immune system can be completely alone to cope with stress and a number of infections, without taking some measures.

Quick and poor diet, intake of tobacco and alcoholic beverages, the use of synthetic drugs, the lack of movement and complete physical inactivity lead us to a low immune system. If we have irregular bowel movements, drink less fluid than necessary during the day, brings our bodies in a serious situation. Precisely this is the opportunity the bacteria E. coli was waiting.

Therefore, we must take into account the quality of each food (preferably in its original form), do not overeat, combine foods properly, enter the fibre and enzymes, and try to not expose the body to everyday stress.

A few suggestions:
  • Drink six to eight glasses of water a day, avoid all alcoholic beverages and reduce your intake of caffeinated beverages. Reduce or quit smoking.
  • Every day drink a small glass of cranberry juice that has an extraordinary effect against inflammation. Make sure to eat plenty of foods rich in vitamin C and flavonoids, such as citrus fruits and green vegetables, to improve immunity. For this purpose, tincture or tea from Echinacea can be of great help.
  • To reduce the burning sensation when urinating, drink two cups of water in which you cooked barley and eat fresh garlic.
  • Barley water is prepared when the tablespoon of barley is cooked for an hour in a litre of water. Strain and drink seasoned with lemon juice and honey.
  • Nutrient rich foods that contain vitamin A, in the first place include carrots and seasonal vegetables - the best is to eat plenty of whole grains, followed by foods rich in zinc (sesame, pumpkin seeds and peas), as well as foods containing selenium - such as Indian and Brazil nuts.

The bacterium E. coli as we know it can be very persistent and real fighter, so adequate food and the best possible therapy is recommended. Here are some recommendations for natural treatment of E. coli:
  • Drink daily homemade kefir or mild probiotic yogurt.
  • Propolis drops are a serious enemy for any infection including Escherichia, the same applies to royal jelly, which will strengthen the body and prevent the loss of immunity, if they are combined with a spoon or two of local honey it brings even greater results.
  • Tea made from basil combats Escherichia and Staphylococci, this real natural antibiotic is extremely effective.
  • Drink antibacterial blueberry juice.

E. coli; treatment with antibiotics

Infections with Escherichia are treated with certain antimicrobial drugs. Suppose also that not all serotypes are equally vulnerable to the same type of antibiotic, therefore, do not start treating yourself - on your own, but with mandatory consultation with the attending physician and proper guidance.

E. coli during pregnancy must be strictly monitored by future mothers they and should often give urine for analysis, with the agreement of urologists and gynaecologists therapy is prescribed. Because of inadequate and excessive use of antibiotics today there are more microorganisms that are resistant to existing drugs, but such infections are more difficult to treat. It is necessary with antibiotics to reinforce personal hygiene, increase the intake of fluids, especially tea, and cranberry and vitamin C.

The best way to treat bacteria E. coli and remove it from the body is to use products based on medicinal herbs and healthy organic vegetables and fruits.

How alkalinisation of the body is important, especially at the beginning of the day in the morning, we are reminded of many times in our articles. Just such a breakfast certainly can help with urinary tract infections, particularly those who are challenged with bacteria E. coli. Here is another great recipe.

How to cure E. coli naturally - EXPERIENCE

On the increasingly popular Facebook we read the experience of I.L. where the bacteria E. coli made big problems. She was faced with the infection for a little more than two years. This is her experience:

"I found the E. coli in the urine, causing inflammation of the urinary bladder accompanied by irritation, frequent urination and pain. I thought it was a normal infection and hoped that it would quickly pass, but I, unfortunately, drank so much antibiotics that I destroyed the intestinal flora and got candidiasis, a problem with Escherichia continued. Parallel to this, on I drunk bear berry tea on my own which did not help.

Upon the recommendation of a friend I came to a tea mixtures from one herbalist, it solved the problem, but only briefly - infection after seven months came back, and I fell into despair. Fortunately, I met a nutritionist who explained to me that my body was acidified from malnutrition and that an infection will return as long as I do not get alkalized and strengthen my immunity. He recommended a book by T. Borody on how to alkaline the body, which has opened my eyes, because it helped me to understand the essence of this diet.

And, believe it or not, after a long time the infection was gone and since then it never returned. I still feed on these principles, with occasional "trips", of course. I freed myself not only from Escherichia but Candida in the intestine, cholesterol and gastritis.
