(WellnessNova.com) - Kidney infections are one of the worst pains someone can experience. I experienced it for four months straight, it never went away and I was miserable. I couldn’t move, my fever was 102.9 to 103.6 every day. The pain was unbearable and it is honestly right up next to the pain of labor. Not only are kidney infections unbearable, they are deadly if not taken care of since they can lead to kidney failure and kidney disease.
How I Got It
When a woman is pregnant, her immune system is down because it’s also protecting her baby. After the baby is born, our immune system takes two years to go back to normal. I had my son and after he turned a year, I got pregnant with my daughter, so my immune system never went back to normal. Because my immune system never went back to normal, it made me even more vulnerable to all types of bacteria, especially E Coli.
When I went into labor, everything was fine. My labor was once again, abnormally fast. I got there at nine in the morning and had her fifty minutes after I got there. The downside to having her that quick is she’s not in the pelvis very long. She was very tiny and because she was so tiny, she didn’t get squished so she pooped right before she came out. Her poop caused the amniotic fluid to turn green.
E. coli in our poop can cause intestinal infections, and if there is a severely high count of it — kidney infections, bladder infections, kidney failure, and kidney disease. All of these are curable, but what if you are allergic to every antibiotic that helps infections? What if you don’t have the money to see a doctor or are just afraid of doctors? You resort to home remedies.
I got a kidney infection from the E coli in my amniotic fluid. Then I had a high count of E coli in my intestines that caused a really high fever. On top of the pain of the kidney infection that had just started, I had a bad infection inside my intestines that made the pain even worse. This becomes serious when it’s not treated right away. I went four months and 18 days with these infections because I have severe allergies to antibiotics. What was I going to do? I had these infections all because of these tiny bacteria and there was no cure for me.
I didn’t find out till I started feeling that burning pain of a bladder infection and by that time, the bacteria had already reached my kidneys. About four days later, I felt excruciating pain in my lower back on the left side. Knowing what it is can be difficult to decipher, as everyone is different. After being pregnant, it takes a longer time to know when something is wrong with your body.
If you feel:
- Burning when you urinate
- Have a nasty rotten flesh smell when you urinate
- Are itchy
- Lower back side pains
- Belly pains
- Bloody stool
- Bloody urine
These are all signs of bladder infections, kidney infections, kidney disease and intestinal infections. It’s hard to tell which one it is without being tested. The only way to decipher which one it is, is if you have a really high fever. If you have a fever of 102 or higher, you have a severe kidney infection. The fever comes when your kidneys are starting to fail, which cause kidney disease.
Other than a fever, they all bring the same exact symptoms, but don’t worry too much. I’ll tell you what natural treatments completely cured me.
As you all know, I am allergic to most medications. This makes it very difficult for me to be treated. Treatments are easy when it comes to illnesses, but doctors often won’t tell you that most medicines have side effects. If you experience unwanted side effects you’ll need more medications to counter them, and this can lead to a cycle.
I became allergic to so many of the medications doctors prescribed because of how much they pumped into my system while I was pregnant and in labor because of all the infections and colds I got.
It’s actually a blessing because it made me find home remedies that cure just about anything and inducing labor. In my research, I found so many remedies that worked.
I’ve had a kidney infection over 12 times, I lost count after 23, I gave up on counting how many times I got the same thing in the same kidney every time.
I cured all of them naturally and here are a few of the home treatments I used:
1. Drink Lots of Water
Drinking a lot of water and other clear liquids helps clean out the bacteria in your bladder, kidneys and intestines. You also have to be careful what you drink. You don’t want to drink water from your faucet. I know, you’re thinking, “Why can’t we drink from our faucets?” Well, the water that comes from the piping systems in town and outside of town are FULL of E coli, which cause all those infections.
This is why everyone is told when they have a baby girl, wipe from front to back not back to front because E coli comes from poop and with a lot of it, it can kill you. Drink water or sprite from a bottle or filtered pitcher. Both of these have zero counts of E coli and fluoride. It’s not just healthy, but it keeps the risks of the bacteria from spreading and rapidly reproducing.
2. Eat Pineapple
Pineapple is a very refreshing fruit. You’re probably wondering how it can help. Fresh pineapple has antibiotics in it that eat bacteria as it goes through the digestive systems, same with most fruits you eat. The more fruits you eat, the healthier you are.
With water and pineapple, you’re not only cleansing your system, you are also hydrating yourself. Infections drain you of all the liquids because you go to the bathroom a lot. The more liquid you put in, the more that comes out and washes the bacteria out with it. The juice from pineapple attracts E coli and is washed away with it.
3. Drink Aloe Vera
Aloe vera is usually used for burns, but that’s just the sap from the plant itself. Drinking four shots of 99.8 percent aloe vera extract every day for 14 days cleanses your system, hydrates you, and kills off the E coli that shouldn’t be there. Aloe vera pulls that bacteria in and takes it out with it.
4. Eat Cranberries
Cranberries only help for so long. After a certain point, they won’t do any good and you have to use other treatments that work for all stages. You have a choice of real cranberries, cranberry juice or cranberry pills.
I personally recommend cranberry pills or real cranberries. Cranberries are full of good bacteria that our body already has. Adding more of those good bacteria gives your body a greater chance at fighting the infection off naturally.
Cranberry juice is better for bladder infections, it works faster with them and takes way less time to go through your system than cranberries and cranberry pills, which both take 24 hours to get through and start working. Once you feel pain in your kidney, go to another remedy, at this point, cranberries will make the infection worse because it will actually feed the infection rather than killing it.
5. Drink This Cherokee Antibiotic Drink
My kidney was so far gone I had to go to the Cherokee ways. It has always been a tradition in my family to use the old Indian medicines as they don’t have any side effects and they take less time than any prescription medicine.
The antibiotic drink is like a cocktail, except without the alcohol. You can get the ingredients at your local health food store or even Walmart, it’s better from the health food store because it’s organic and healthier.
- Liquid electrolytes
- 8 percent aloe vera extract
- Cranberry juice
- Black finely ground pepper
- Finely ground salt
- Ground basil
- Ground parsley
Take 3 shots of cranberry juice, one shot of electrolytes, 2 shots of Aloe Vera extract and one-fourth teaspoon of the ground herbs and mix them all together. I will tell you it is a nasty drink but it works. Chuck three of those antibiotic drinks for 3 days, then cut it back to two for 3 more days and then to one for the last three days. At the end of the last day, eat a fresh clove of garlic right before bed. After you have done the whole process, you will feel no pain and it won’t come back.
I took these remedies that last month of my infection, the best one is the natural Cherokee antibiotic drink. I know how you feel, I went through the pain, the fevers and the vomiting for four months straight. I got it because I had my daughter too early, she wasn’t very big and pooped right before she was in this world. I suffered, but my ancestors remedy helped me get through it and they will help you get through it to.
