Vitamin C and Urinary Infections

Monday, 23 July 2012 09:06 AM

Question: Do you think intravenous vitamin C would be an appropriate treatment for a urinary tract infection?

Dr. Blaylock's Answer:

Vitamin C has been used for more than 40 years to prevent and treat bladder infections. When I was a neurosurgeon, it was part of standard care to prevent urinary tract infections in patients with spinal cord injuries. Combined with cranberry juice, it worked even better.
We now know that a substance called D-mannose taken every two hours during an infection prevents the bacteria from adhering to the wall of the bladder, greatly speeding up one’s cure. I have found that D-mannose is safe to use.
