Chronic Bladder Infection (Chronic Cystitis)
Chronic and recurrent bladder infection is a huge problem which many urologists do not know how to handle. What they do not teach in medical schools is the fact that in such cases there is the buildup of a “bio-film” on the inside of the bladder which harbors bacteria and protects them from being wiped out by antibiotics. Typically the infection reasserts itself within two weeks of the end of antibiotic therapy. One way to deal with this is bacteriophage therapy, however this is not available in the U.S. thanks to our FDA. Fortunately, there is another method which is to give an enzyme named lumbokinase (trade mane Boluoke) along with the antibiotic. This dissolves the bio-film and allows the antibiotic to do its job. Combined with drinking a large volume of water, perhaps one gallon, over an entire day, mixed with a bottle of Just Cranberry (a juice made by the Knudsen company available at Whole Foods and other natural food stores) the problem is usually solved.
