Chronic Bladder Infections

With the high rate of bladder infection in women and the frequent recurrences, medical researchers have long searched for explanations for the recurrent episodes.  Researchers and Washington University School of Medicine believe they may be on the trail of why this happens and not surprisingly for a functional medicine doctor, it has to do with chronic inflammation.

Traditional Remedies Resurfacing for Drug Resistant Bacteria

 

            Emory scientists investigated the potential disease fighting properties of three plants listed in ‘Resources of the Southern Fields and Forests’ from Civil War doctors.   While they did not understand the mechanisms of herbs and plants they used, US Civil War physicians worked tirelessly to save wounded soldiers lives and limbs.  Current medical researchers,

Give a Bacterial Colony a Blanket and You Give Them Life

Clinical and research medicine has long searched for keys to overcome bacterial resistance when treating patients for recurrent or stubborn infections.  Researchers have found various means to overcome bacterial resistance in many cases.  They have produced whole new classes of antibiotics, They have altered old antibiotics over and over, either increasing their killing power or increasing their resistance to bacterial counterattacks.
