In this episode of Defiant Health, let’s talk about some new insights into a very serious issue that afflicts many females: repeated urinary tract infections, or UTIs. This can happen to a female at any age, but becomes an especially frequent problem as women get older. Of course, the conventional “solution” is to prescribe course after course of antibiotics that disrupt the entire body’s microbiome and not uncommonly leads to dysbiosis in the colon and other organs, SIBO, vaginal candida infections and other problems.
A number of new observations have emerged that are completely changing the understanding of this common problem. One new and exciting insight is that the urinary system has its own unique microbiome, i.e., a collection of microbes that normally colonize the bladder and other portions of the urinary system, despite having been regarded as sterile for many years. It is disruption of this urinary microbiome that is a major contributor to repeated UTIs. It’s also become clear that the vaginal microbiome is a major determinant of urinary health. Let’s talk about why this happens and what steps you can take to stack the odds in favor of putting a stop to this annoying and health-impairing issue.
