What is the Root Cause of a Urinary Tract Infection?
The foundational problem with chronic UTI’s is an unhealthy gut microbiome which creates a pH imbalance and toxic chemical byproducts that are “burning” the bladder as they are expelled. A healthy microbiome absorbs the nutrients from food, and destroys, neutralizes, and carries out toxic waste. When this natural system of digestion, absorption, and excretion is thrown into a state of imbalance, your microbiome will have been overrun with pathogenic microbes—eating and thriving on the processed sugary food that comes along—and converts these foods into hundreds of toxic chemicals.
Then these toxic chemicals get into your bloodstream and go to all parts of your body and cause complete havoc wherever they land. You can take all the sulfa drugs and antibiotics in the world, but this will never fix the foundational problem of toxicity and your continual UTI’s. If you do not have a healthy microbiome, your digestive system becomes a source of toxicity to you instead of a source of nourishment, and you will have a river of chemical toxicity, microbes, allergens, heavy metals, etc., flowing from the gut into the bloodstream.
When these toxins leave the body, many of them leave through the urine. And when this toxic, acrid urine amasses in the bladder, it can cause chronic cystitis or UTI’s. This presents as a “bladder infection,” but it is not an infection per se; it is a pH imbalance and toxic CHEMICAL cystitis—caused by chemicals and byproducts that were produced in your digestive tract, that got into the bloodstream and finished up in the urine. Your doctor might be puzzled because no infection will show up in a urinalysis. They cannot find a pathogen, elevated white blood cell count, or an infection. Yet you have bladder pain. Sometimes unbearable bladder pain. This can all be cleared up permanently by cleaning up the river of toxicity coming from your gut.
Is there anything natural I can do for a urinary tract infection?
If you have been eating too much junk food and sugar, your bladder pH has been shifted, temporarily, to the alkaline side, and this can cause a lot of bladder pain and burning. If you take Cal-Amo or drink some Apple Cider Vinegar (although the Cal-Amo last hours in your body vs. Apple Cider Vinegar), the pH in your bladder will soon switch more to the acidic side, and quickly reduce the pain. Also, if you take Calcium Lactate and Trace Minerals B12 on a regular basis, they will help to balance out your pH, they will help it not shift to one side or the other. All the pH buffering systems are mineral-dependent, so a mineral deficiency could be the cause of a pH imbalance also. Cranberry Complex will also help balance out the pH in your bladder.
You will also need to make your gut environment inhospitable for the toxic microbes that have taken up residency so this chronic problem will be foundationally changed. This is accomplished by doing GAPS, or at a minimum taking Zymex and Lactic Acid Yeast wafers and following the instructions listed below.
Urinary Tract Infection ProtocolTake The Symptom Survey
Cal-Amo, For intense bladder pain/infection: Take 6 Cal-Amo tablets and 3 Cranberry Complex pills. Soak in a very warm bathtub of water. Wait 10 minutes. Take 6 more Cal-Amo and 2 more Cranberry Complex. ½ hour later, take 3 Cal-Amo and 1 Cranberry. This ALWAYS works in about 20 minutes to get rid of the intense pain. Continue taking 2 Cal-Amo each half-hour for the rest of the day. Bonus: Cal-Amo will help with acne! Also, the following supplements will help with UTI’s on a foundational level, and help to alleviate them from happening again:
Zymex Wafers, Chew 8/day (4 twice a day) for two weeks, then drop down to just 3/day for two more weeks. This will change the environment in your small intestine where the offending microbes will not be able to thrive.
Lactic Acid Yeast wafers, Chew 8/day (4 twice a day) for two weeks, then drop down to 2/day for two more weeks. These will change the pH of your colon to more acidic so the correct microflora can flourish.
Trace Minerals B12, 4/day
Calcium Lactate Tablets, 4/night
Arginex, 6/day for 2 weeks, flushes the kidneys
Albaplex, 4/day, long-term support for the kidneys
Cataplex A-C-P, 6/day
UriCo Phytosynergist, 15mL a day for 2 weeks, herbal bladder support
Echinacea Premium, 4 tabs/day or 10mL, if an infection is present
Andrographis Complex, 4/day, if an infection is present

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING BULLETS BEFORE USING THIS PROTOCOL
- The protocol above is designed to address your issues at the foundational level, and not to treat disease. This means, in our opinion, most of our health problems, short of accident or trauma, are of a dietary nutritional deficiency. The listed protocol or supplement provides your body with essential micro and macronutrients to help and assist normal nutritional balance.
- The daily dosage is in ( ) parenthesis for most protocols; for example (6) means take 6 per day, but spread it out by taking half in the morning and a half in the evening. Some protocols will have more specific instructions to follow.
- MediHerb products, shown in italics, often speed healing response and should be considered for most protocols unless contraindicated.
- We recommend adding the General Health Daily Fundamentals pack to each protocol. This adds to the critical foundational nutrition each protocol needs. It contains Catalyn––an entirely whole-food and glandular broad-spectrum multivitamin, Trace Minerals-B12, and Tuna Omega-3 pearls for your DHA and EPA omega 3 fatty acids daily requirements.
- Spacing out the daily doses throughout the day improves absorption and is strongly recommended.
- Most supplements should be taken with food except for PMG’s, most calcium products, Gastrex, Chlorophyll Complex™, Okra Pepsin E3, Cholocol II, and Zymex II. Also, most herbs work more efficiently if taken away from food.
- Be advised that these nutritional and herbal products are not intended as primary therapy for any disease, but rather to provide nutritional and herbal support to help normalize body physiology and repair.
