    ph in off in your body. Use 1 tsp sea salt in 8 oz. water- if you can stand it include 1 Tbsp. pure cranberry concentrate with the sea salt and drink. 2 or 3 times a day until symptoms are gone. the first sea salt drink should knock out the infection- they hate salt.

  19. Cassandra Says:

    ya i am prone to get blatter infections but this time cranberry juice is not doing the trick. i wish it were because it is very uncomfortable but i dont think its a normal bladder infection either but i have been drinking yogurt cup things because yogurt is supposed to help. anyone know if hot bath water with dissolved salt in it would help because salt is supposed to get rid of infections right?

  20. Ron Davis,C.H.H.C. Says:

    I would suggest any of the following: (not all at once) D Mannose, garlic, black walnut, goldenseal, uva ursi, marshmallow root, juniper berry, burdock, fennel, slippery elm, buchu,Cod liver oil, vitamin C,A and zinc with a minimum of 15 oz of cranberry juice–and plenty of good water.
    Don’t forget to establish good vitamin D levels, along with adequate calcium levels because these are all co factors that enable themselves and other essential nutrients.i.e. You must have vitamin D to get calcium to get boron,zinc,magnesium, etc.
    As an example in the 1970s the University of Toronto published a study that said the minerals, chromium and vanadium cured type II diabetes. So people ran to the store to get these two minerals and began to take them expecting a cure for diabetes. But–they didn’t work… Why? Because Chromium and vanadium require 23 co factors to become effective. Co factor issues are also why many other supplements don’t work. i.e. Lowered levels of magnesium are worsened by taking high does of calcium. Even moderate levels of vitamin C block the absorption of vitamin B12, and consistently high Vitamin C levels inhibit calcium and have been shown to cause cancer.
