If you have ever spoken to us here at Sweet Cures® , or a urology specialist, you will know that it is suggested that people who suffer with E. coli related Urinary Tract Infections should use their diet to adjust their urine pH, tipping it to being slightly alkali (about 7.5 on the pH scale).
The reason for this, as you may already know, is that E.coli are able to multiply at nearly double their normal rate in an acidic environment. Whilst that already seems bad, it is difficult to grasp the impact that this has when it's actually happening.
In this example, the E.coli multiply every 20 minutes in a neutral environment. In an alkali environment they are slowed to multiplying every 30 minutes, and in acid they are able to multiply every 10 minutes. Let's look at how that works out over an eight hour period, showing the results every hour...
It becomes clear that the difference between neutral urine and alkali urine is enormous, and when compared yet again with acidic urine, the numbers are staggeringly different!
It is very important to note that urine is naturally acidic, so by doing nothing at all to change that, it is easy to see how a minor infection could quickly turn into a full blown attack with a possibility of the outbreak spreading to the kidneys, which can be very dangerous indeed.
Also important is that, in this demonstration, we started with a single bacterium. This is very unrealistic. When you are at the point of being able to feel or smell early indications of an infection there are already billions of bacteria, each and every one of which is able to produce a similar output to the single bacterium we started with in our table. Enough, in fact that this web page hasn't the space to display the figures involved!
With those numbers in mind, and the knowledge that Cranberry Juice, orange juice, alcohol, and Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) tablets have a potent acidifying effect on the urine, do you really want to be making your urine more acidic during a UTI as popular myth would dictate?...
