Case Study: Recovery from Severe Illness with Zeolite and Glyconutrients

by Innesah York(more info)

listed in infections, originally published in issue 133 - March 2007

They say a little knowledge is a dangerous thing, but it could turn out to be a lifesaver. In early May, during one night, I suffered pain in the bladder, sides and back along with frequent urination, with blood appearing in the urine, and a very high temperature. Early next morning, I visited a local private casualty department. A urine test indicated a severe bacterial infection, so I was prescribed a broad-spectrum antibiotic, Ciprofloxacin (Cipro). They asked if they should do a culture, but said not to bother since I could come back again if needed. I felt better after one dose, but two weeks later it was back with a vengeance. Urine I passed contained mostly blood. I suffered the same symptoms again.

A friend recommended D-mannose (a glyconutrient) which I started taking, but, as the infection was already entrenched, I returned to the hospital. On telling them I was taking D-mannose, the doctor suggested I didn’t know what the product was and that it was probably irritating my kidneys. He wasn’t interested in reading the leaflet I showed him describing glyconutrients. I was told to go home and stop taking the D-mannose, and if I came back, the antibiotics would then be prescribed.

I took a turn for the worse during the night and as I slipped into delirium, family and friends became concerned. A pharmacist friend prescribed some more Cipro for me since the hospital wouldn’t. The pharmacy again sent the Ciprofloxacin to me.

I took the D-mannose and antibiotics at the same time, as they do not conflict with each other. Sweet Cures of York, who gave me so much help when I was seriously ill, were concerned that I was taking Cipro again, since one of them apparently suffered serious health damage from it. I had to take it again as the condition had become too entrenched, which they agreed. I took it again and felt better, but two weeks later it was back. The doctor at the pharmacy said that some of the bacteria were surviving and that I needed another dose. I had been taking 500 mg twice a day.
 
They did a culture, but reached no conclusion about which bacteria was causing the problem. They did not want to prescribe a different antibiotic since a sensitivity test came back positive. They sent me more Cipro, which I decided not to take. I had D-mannose in the house and immediately started to drink one teaspoon in very weak tea every three hours. Sweet Cures advised me to wake in the night to take it. I battled four days and nights with very little sleep. Each time I woke I had to wait an hour after taking it and then drink two glasses of water as I was fighting an extremely difficult infection.

On the fourth day the fever broke and I felt better. I then went for eight weeks with no problems, but as the New Year, 2006, was approaching, I became ill again with another infection. This time I took D-mannose and D-xylose. D-xylose is used to treat complicated bladder infections. What a result! The infection disappeared immediately and I also felt much stronger as I had developed chronic fatigue syndrome and was bed-ridden and very weak. I was also very depressed.

I began to plot my return to health with a vengeance, and studied all I could find to do with the subject of kidney and bladder infections. Recent research confirms, that internationally, one in five women experience urinary-tract infections (UTI). It is apparently a world-wide problem, and if left untreated can cause severe scarring of the kidneys, which can lead to kidney failure. I devised a nutritional regime for myself, which included Zeolite as I unfortunately was suffering from joint problems in my fingers and hip. I had been advised, since Cipro has been known to deposit fluoride in the joints of the body, that it could be a side-effect, since the body is unable to excrete the fluoride.

There are quite a few other nasty side-effects, i.e. tendons have a tendency to tear. I had noticed that on walking any distance my calf muscles felt as if they had been stretched. I continued taking Zeolite and the conditions were eradicated. My immune system grew much stronger, and at one stage, for a period of two weeks, I was sleeping 16 hours a day. I was told this is part of the healing response. Bladder weakness and soreness and aching in the kidney region that I had been left with disappeared.

I still take Zeolite every day. Every morning, I put a teaspoon of Zeolite powder (maintenance dose), 2 flat dessertspoons of barley grass juice powder, 2 dessertspoon of Immunecomplex, two flat teaspoons of Prime Directive powder, 1 dessertspoon of Udo’s Oil, 3 dessertspoons of Aloe Vera juice mixed into a fruit smoothie. An effect of this which I noticed was improved hair thickness and nail strength. I also take 2-3 teaspoons of D-mannose and D-xylose every day. I have been free from kidney infections since New Year 2006. I hope we never lose our choice to decide if we wish to use supplements in our quest for the recovery of our health.

    Where did you purchase the D-xylose? I can't seem to find it anywhere on the internet. Is it the same as the sugar Xylitol?
