Exciting to meet a urologist at a urology conference last month. He is Senior Consultant Urologist of St Bartholomew's Health Trust and responsible for hospitals in that Trust area of East London and the City of London. Professor Frank CHINEGWUNDOH has two lines of letters after his name and also received the MBE...
Too many antibiotics? Until you know your cause or causes of recurrent cystitis /UTI's you will keep needing repeat antibiotics. Bladder infection cannot be fully flushed out either with my Three Hour management process or just drinking a lot of water. Can't be done.
Prevention, as in my book The...
What’s in those floodwaters down in Texas and Louisiana? Everybody’s effluence that’s what. The drains expel it since they’re flooded too, the animals expel it all the time, the humans have to keep going, the sewage works overflow and send stuff out onto the surrounding area. Its all not nice and its very dangerous.
Bad water here too, I’m afraid to say. Pipework underground can break apart with earth movements and cause contamination of all domestic water. Body-wise you also become contaminated. If your home is flooded you won’t have a water-boiling facility and there won’t be any electricity or gas unless you are on higher ground. You basically have to move yourself. Absolutely terrible situation to be in. My heart goes out to those in such distress.
In Lagos, Nigeria where I had to live for three years the house water was permanently contaminated. Each morning water was filtered first then boiled for 20 minutes. After cooling it went in about twenty glass drinks bottles for use all day. From washing fruit, lettuces and veg I soon came to use it in the bathroom and had my own two bottles by the toilet. No more cystitis in Lagos or anywhere else. Thank you God.
Circumstances forced me to research efficient perineal washing. This is the mainstay of my work and the mainstay of preventing UTI’s/cystitis / water infections / bladder infections and has been all these long years. In western nations, the sanitation is good and hot water from the tap/faucet is best. Don’t trust it elsewhere.
Since 1976 the simple Bottle Washing process in my books has made millions well and myself of course, too. Its on my DVD The Cystitis Solution and described in detail in The Patient’s Encyclopaedia of Urinary Tract Infection, Sexual Cystitis and Interstitial Cystitis. You must follow the directions that I give and not invent your own version of it. I’ve chosen the words very carefully. Read about possible mistakes that patients have made and don’t do them yourself. Do as I do and do as I say!
What’s so Important about the Bottle Washing?
Its stops new germs from getting into your bladder. If, for instance, you are already colonised from many attacks then you mustn’t add another mob of troublemakers. Keep coliform at bay. At the proscribed times in your day, wash your hands and wash your perineum, the area between legs. At night clean teeth and clean the perineum. I call it ‘top n’ tail. Then you are automatically ready for any sex. Man under a full running shower every night, the bottle washing process for men is difficult because the penis is blocking the water flow. The photo is of an antique Arab vessel used for washing genitalia and then my modern version doing the identical job. Change the bottle every six weeks or so as airborne bacteria build up.
It varies woman to woman depending upon lifestyle and diary dates BUT certainly after every bowel movement of any sort, always before sex. It’s good at night-time, good after swimming. Its good for minimising vaginal thrush too. There’s a little after-sex clean-out version as well to reduce inflammation and bruising. Once you start you never want to stop because it makes you feel cooler and cleaner whatever your age.
I would rather leave my passport behind than my 500 ml plastic bottle!!I love it. Its the first thing I pack to go away anywhere for any time. It keeps me well and free from pain and misery.

Get those jeans off and those leggings and those trousers because they all remove cooling air from between your legs. Jeans, leggings, tights, trousers all help promote yeast infections, Thrush, Candida and fungal infections.
What conditions do they like and need to thrive?
Yeasts thrive in warmth and moisture. Candida is a type of yeast and it has sub-strains. Vaginal and penile thrush are the same just differently known. They are still yeasts and Candida. They all need a warm genital area and they love menstrual blood as its rich in foods. Yeast, thrush, Candida, fungi love moisture so they can ‘swim’ around more easily with their miniscule, microscopic oars. Of course its all microscopic, our eyes can only see the creamy discharge not the individual fungus spore.
Redness, acute irritation, itchiness, scratching at it, creamy discharge which is smelly. Cystitis and bladder soreness is often involved. There can be a lot of wind especially in men who drink beer and alcohol. Its depressing to keep living like this. Sex is out of the question, scratching won’t help at all because the infection will spread. Lichen Sclerosis of the labia is commonplace as a side issue. Its too sore to walk, you can’t swim, run or jog. Life is altogether very depressing. Jeans, leggings, tights, trousers encourage fungal scratching and breeding, with bladder soreness and frequency as well.
Antibiotics are a famous cause, mercury debilitating your immune system is another but not so well known or appreciated. Diabetes, being just very ill, and most immune system disorders are there. Common causes that can be very simply prevented are foods. Cheeses, vinegars, salad dressings, vinaigrettes, chocolates, sweets, or regular pastas. Drinking sodas full of sugars, alcohols of all sorts, colas, wines, liqueurs. Binge drinkers are full of yeast infections. Binge eating and drinking simply provide fungal infections with all their foods.
Getting hot and itchy
Then there’s the clothing. Boxer shorts for men and cotton panties or nothing for women are cooler and worn in all hot countries. Long garments. Yes long ones, not just for modesty which allow a nice swirl of cooling air around and up legs. Almost all my own holidays with my husband were ruined by itchy discharge from thrush infections. I wore sexy trousers a lot in those days but they made me unfit for any sexual activity. Fungi adore hot bodies, not cool ones. Get hot with trousers, leggings, jeans, tights and you’ll imprison thrush in a swamp of fetid heat and sweat. It’ll absolutely love it!
What to do to avoid fungal infections, vaginal thrush, Candida, yeast infections.
Simple enough! stop wearing jeans, leggings, tights, trousers. Stop binge eating of cheeses, alcohols, chocolates. Keep Diabetes in check, refuse mercury teeth fillings. Stay away from men with beer bellies. Lower the amount of pastas in your diet since they convert to basic sugars. And then read up on the many variations that are to be found in my book, “Candida/Yeast”. There are many!
