A Natural Approach To Health
Living With Pseudomonas Infection
I had a question the other day about Pseudomonas infections.
A Pseudomonas infection is caused by a very common bacteria called Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
Healthy people often carry these bacteria around without knowing it and without having any problems.
Sometimes these germs cause minor problems like swimmer’s ear and hot tub rash.
But for people who are weak or ill, these germs can cause very serious—even deadly—infections in any part of your body.
The infections are hard to treat because the bacteria can resist many types of antibiotics.
People in the hospital may get this infection.
In hospitals, the bacteria can spread through medical equipment, cleaning solutions, and other equipment.
They can even spread through food.
When they spread to people who’re weak because of illness, surgery, or treatment, they can cause very serious infections.
For example, Pseudomonas is one of the main causes of pneumonia in people who’re on breathing machines.
Burn victims and people with puncture wounds may get dangerous Pseudomonas infections of the blood, bone, or urinary tract.
The bacteria can also get into your body through IV needles or catheters.
These bacteria like moist environments, like hot tubs and swimming pools, where they can cause trouble.
People who wear contact lenses can get serious eye infections if the bacteria get into their contact lens solutions.
This can happen if you aren’t careful about keeping your contact lenses sterile.
Symptoms depend on where the infection is.
If it’s in a wound, there may be green-blue pus in or around the area.
If you have swimmer’s ear, your ear aches.
If the infection causes pneumonia, you may get a cough.
When the infections are elsewhere in your body, you may have a fever and feel tired.
But all Pseudomonas infections can make you very sick if they spread through your bloodstream.
A serious infection can cause symptoms of high fever, chills, confusion, and shock.
To deal with a Pseudomonas infection, it’s beneficial to:
*Drink 6-8 cups of purified water daily, which cleanses and flushes your system. Drink at least 1 cup per hour.
*Drink pure, sugar-free only, organic cranberry juice (found in a health food store).
*Maintain your alkalinity.
*Investigate possible triggers.
*Try to eliminate toxic products.
*Avoid sugar, alcohol, caffeine, soda pop, dairy products, and processed foods.
*Eat plenty of raw foods.
*Consider fasting and fresh juicing.
*Empty bladder frequently (never ignore the urge).
*Practice good personal hygiene. (Keep your hands clean by washing them often and well. Keep cuts and scrapes clean and covered with a bandage. Don’t share personal items like towels or razors.)
*Take plentiful amounts of alfalfa throughout the day.
*Review my post on Candida, because many times this can be a significant influence.
*Avoid toxic feminine care products.
