There are several causative factors in creating the condition called urinary tract infections or “UTI’S”. Hygiene is important because the bacteria from the lower intestine or vagina can easily migrate to and travel up the urethra to the bladder. Wipe carefully and from front to the back of your body. Other factors are constipation, chemical sensitivity to scented toilet paper and soaps or bubble baths. Sexual intercourse can be disruptive to the sensitive tissues in the area and create an environment for bacteria to grow. Empty your bladder before and after intercourse. Drink 8 oz. of water before and after as well. Diaphragm use can add to the liklihood of UTI and the reason may be improper hygiene so be sure to carefully clean your diaphragm before and after each use.
Nutritionally speaking, include acidophilus to your diet or foods like yogurt that contain live cultures without sugary fruits added. Diets rich in whoe grains and natural fruits and vegetables are best. Avoid processed foods and those containing artificial colors and ingredients.
