Udder Cream For Cows

Most of us grew up hearing the injunction to "Drink your milk!" at almost every meal. Milk, we understood, was the kid-fuel that made for strong bones, sound teeth, and a passing grade on Mrs. Watson's pop arithmetic quiz. Milk was the nectar of childhood, as beyond reproach as any foodstuff can get.

Today? Not so much. In the last decade or so milk has been rapidly losing fans and acquiring critics. Even the late Dr. Benjamin Spock reversed his support of cow's milk for children in 1998 in his last edition of his world-famous book Baby and Child Care.

What's responsible for sullying milk's lily white reputation? How has the sacred cow of the American diet fallen from nutritional grace?

For starters, it seems that some of those inviolate "truisms" that we were taught about milk might not be true after all. Take that one about milk preventing osteoporosis--the bone disease that leads to increased risk of fracture. It turns out that the cause of osteoporosis in later life is not the result of failure to drink our milk, or even to take in enough calcium. It's what we do to deplete our bodies of calcium.

Dr. Neal D. Barnard, president of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, speaks for a new wave of researchers who are disputing the conventional wisdom on osteoporosis. "The real causes of osteoporosis," says Barnard, "are the five factors that leach calcium from the bones: Animal protein, caffeine, sodium, tobacco, and sedentary lifestyle.

"Walter Willett, chairman of the department of nutrition at the Harvard School of Public Health, and T. Colin Campbell, professor emeritus of nutritional biochemistry at Cornell University, also say that there's little evidence that boosting your calcium intake to the currently recommended levels will prevent fractures.

Willett co-authored The Nurses' Health Study, one of the largest investigations into the risk factors for major chronic diseases in women. The study found that women with the highest calcium consumption from dairy products actually had substantially more fractures than women who drank less milk. Both nutritionists say that Americans already get plenty calcium.

Other researchers are questioning the connection between dairy consumption and cancer, asthma, and acne. The new focus on lactose intolerance is not helping milk's reputation either.

Lactose intolerance, also called lactase deficiency or hypolactasia, is the inability to metabolize lactose, the sugar found in milk. Lactose intolerance is more common in people with Asian, African, Native American, or Mediterranean ancestry than it is among northern and western Europeans. Approximately 30 million American adults have some degree of lactose intolerance by age 20.

Finally--and this may be the big one--there's a significant difference in the way that milk is produced today. Many consumers--as well as nutrition scientists and animal rights activists--object to the widespread use of recombinant bovine growth hormone (rBGH) in American dairy cattle. The hormone is produced by engineered bacteria, is administered to cattle by injection, and simulates another naturally occurring hormone (IGF-1) which the cow uses to convert nutrients into milk. Increased levels of IGF-1 in humans have been linked to colon and breast cancer.

Even if the hormone injections don't affect the milk, they're rough on the cows. Producing all that milk causes problems like udder infections and lameness, which must be treated with antibiotics. For some consumers, this may be a sufficient reason to avoid milk from dairies using the injections. Indeed, it was, in part, the animal welfare issue that led Canada and the European Union to ban them. The United States is the only developed nation which allows humans to drink milk from cows given artificial growth hormone.

Monsanto, which makes the hormone, and the dairy industry, of course, refute all these points. They have their own studies and experts who are attempting to shore up milk's reputation. We've written here before about the dairy industry's attempt to promote milk for weight loss, when the science says it doesn't work.For now, however, milk seems to be waging a tough PR campaign. There are more than enough concerns for parents to reconsider whether telling the kids to "Drink Your Milk!" is still such a good idea.

Cream For Rashes

Our world stops when our children dont feel well. Minor symptoms of a child illness we don't waste a minute and head straight to a family physician. Two common illnesses constipation and rashes on kids are constantly usual on ages between 4-6 years old. To prevent them is easy if we know what it is, the diagnosis and the follow-up to impede it from coming back.

RASH

A rash is a change in skin affecting a change in color, appearance, or texture. A rash may be localized to one area of the body or affect all the skin. Rashes can be due to drug reaction, infection or an allergic reaction to the skin. Most rashes caused by viruses don't harm your child and subsides over time without any treatment. However, some childhood rashes have serious or even life-threatening causes. And as a parent, you should be familiar with it. Rashes can take any forms and causes the skin to change color, become itchy, become warm, bumpy, dry, cracked or blistered, swell and may be painful -- especially to children.

Common causes of rashes include anxiety, allergies, skin contact with an irritant, bacterial infections, fungal infections, reaction to vaccination, eczema or acne, sunbur, irritation, autoimmune disorders, lead poisoning, or pregnancy. For children, some rashes are associated symptoms of certain diseases so be cautious of its appearance. Such diseases with rash symptoms have three types: bacterial and viral rashes, life threatening rashes, and fungal and parasitic rashes.

Many childhood diseases have bacterial or viral causes and include a rash of some type. Continuing research on immune system, such diseases become less of a threath to your child's health. Common bacterial and viral rashes are chickenpox, measles and rubella, scarlet fever, fifth disease, roseola infantum, impetigo and other enteroviruses.

Life-threatening rashes are uncommon. If your child obviously appears ill, you should go to your a hospital or clinic for rashes immediately. Life-threatening rashes include fever and petechiae, meningococcemia, rocky mountain spotted fever, lyme disease, Kawasaki disease, and toxic shock syndrome.

Children share many things and less likely to take hygiene precautions than adults, so always keep an eye on what your children holds or even put at their mouth. Pay attention to prolonged itching that hits your children. Scabies, ringworm, and athlete's foot
are common fungal and parasitic rashes.

Rashes in the NewBorn -- The most delicate age to take care of are newborn babies, and even they never get away with rashes. It is common to newborn babies to have diaper rashes, but there are other irritations like milia, cradle cap, erythema toxicum, infantile acne, prickly heat, candidal rash, and seborrheic dermatitis.

Some rashes are normal, but if it becomes chronic, directly go to a
clinic for rashes and see a pediatric immediately.

CONSTIPATION

Constipation is a condition of the digestive system where a person experiences hard feces that are difficult to egest. For children, it is extremely painful. Always be alerted on your child's bowel movement. Signs that your child is constipated is evident with painful bowel movement, having less than 3 stools in a week, large and hard bowel movements, swollen belly, loss of appetite, blood mixed in with the stool, abdominal pain, decreased appetite, nausea, vomiting, urinary incontinence, frequent urination, bed-wetting, and reappearing urinary tract infections.

Constipation is caused by not eating enough fiber or drinking enough water, eating and drinking to many milk products, switching from breast milk to formula milk or cow's milk, some illness and medications.

To prevent constipation, it is important to eat a balanced diet with fibers, drinking plenty of water and juice, avoid too much intake of dairy products, and encourage your child to take bathroom breaks.

Constipation is harmless and can be treated at home, but if it becomes chronic, you need medical attention from
child pediatrics.

Pure Cranberry Juice

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    What are the benefits of drinking pure cranberry juice?

    • ANSWER:
      Health benefits of cranberry juice are many, including:

      Avoid urinary tract infection: Cranberry juice is very effective against urinary tract infections. 100 percentage cranberry juices produce hippuric acid in the urine. Hippuric acid acidifies the urine and prevents bacteria from sticking to the walls of the bladder. Drinking one glass of cranberry juice daily reduces the risk of infections and prevents cystitis. Cranberry juice also contains the chemical compounds called proanthocyanidins. These are powerful antioxidants, which decreases the adherence of bacteria to the bladder cells.

      Healthy cardiovascular system: Cranberry juice contains powerful antioxidants that help to prevent or repair the damages caused by free radicals. Drinking cranberry juice helps in the increase of good cholesterol and the reduction of bad (LDL) cholesterol. These benefits can be attributed to the presence of polyphenols in cranberry juice.

      Prevents tooth decay: According to new researches, cranberry juice prevents tooth cavities. The chemical contained in the juice, blocks the bacteria from sticking to the teeth. Thus, it prevents the formation of dental plaques. Prevents cancer: Cranberry contains proanthocyanidins. These compounds inhibit the growth of various cancer cells. According to studies, proanthocyanidins can stop micro-tumours from developing in the blood vessels necessary for their continued growth. Regular consumption of cranberry juice prevents the rapid growth of tumours. Chemicals in cranberries also prevent multiplication of breast cancer cells.

      Cures cold: Fresh cranberry juice is effective at fighting against infections. It cures sore throats and colds.

      Good for obese people: Cranberry juice is rich in organic acids. These have an emulsifying effect on the fat deposits in our body. So it is good for people who want to shed those extra kilos.

      Avoid respiratory infections: According to conducted studies, cranberry juice helps to inhibit certain strains of the Haemophilus influenza, which is a common cause of ear and respiratory infections in children. The juice inhibits the bacteria's hair-like structures, therefore not allowing them to be able to adhere to skin surfaces.
      Prevents formation of kidney stones: The high amount of acid components in cranberry juice prevents kidney stone formation.

      Strengthens bones and teeth: Although cranberry juice is also a source of calcium, many juice companies add extra calcium in the juice. Natural or otherwise, it reduces the risk of getting osteoporosis.
      Prevents stomach ulcers and cancer: H. pylori bacteria can cause stomach ulcers and cancer. Regular cranberry juice consumption, for months, destroys these bacteria and saves you from such stomach related troubles.

      TIP
      Cranberry juice should be consumed unsweetened for maximum health benefit. It is a refreshing drink. Unsweetened cranberry juice tastes slightly sour but for medicinal purposes, 2 ounces of cranberry juice diluted in 8 ounces of water is recommended. It is good for your overall health.

  2. QUESTION:
    Cranberry Juice Health?
    Is Diet Cranberry Juice by oceanspray just as good as the regular cranberry juice that is not diet?
    Also, what are the health promotes of this juice?
    Also, is it healthier overall to drink diet or regular in regards to cranberry juice?
    P.S. splenda is listed in ocean spray drinks

    • ANSWER:
      Pure cranberry juice is very sour. It needs sweetening in order to be palatable. Splenda is one of the more healthy artificial sweeteners ? its makers say that it's made of natural ingredients. High fructose corn syrup is said to be one of the less healthy ordinary sweeteners, although not all authorities agree.

      So I don't have any opinion about diet versus regular cranberry juice. They both taste good.

      Cranberry juice has vitamin C, and is also recommended for people at risk for kidney and bladder infections. It's believed that some natural compound in this juice discourages bacteria from adhering to the internal surfaces of these organs.

  3. QUESTION:
    What is the proanthocyanidin level in 8oz pure cranberry juice?

    • ANSWER:
      In ocean spray cranberry juice approximately 8-10 glasses contain an averaage of 30-35mg of proanthocyanidins. All cranberry products contain some proanthocyanidins as well ad grapes. But the amount varies dramatically depending on which product of cranberry you use. 90% of U.T.I.s are responsible from having E-coli, the proanthocyanidins in cranberry stops the E-coli from stickint to the urinary tract lining. There is a cranberry supplement called Thera-cran and it is the only cranberry supplement to contain high levels of proanthocyanidins. This product has been tested and is also certified. Proanthocyanidins help prevent microorganisms from causing infections like U.T.Is and appear to have cancer fighting properties and is also an excellent source of vitamin c when coming from cranberries. Pure cranberry juice is also very acidic and quite bitter while other sources of cranberry juices contain sweeteners as well as cranberry, because of this it reduces the immune effects associated with berry. Cranberry contains oxalate which is a substance that may increase the risk of kidney stones but usually only the people who are already at risk.
      Vaccinium macrocarpon also known as the medicinal propertiies of cranberry. Did you know that Native Americans use raw cranberries as a wound dressing. Earlier in time England learned to use both raw and cooked cranberry for many things. Some of which include; ailements including loss of appetite as a dietary supplement, digestive problems, blood disorders and vitamin C deficiency known as scurvy. It causes weakness, gum disease, and spontaneous bleeding in the skin. The whole story behind cranberry and U.T.Is are as followed; snd this scientist discovered centuries ago, around the 1920-1930's. People who eat large amount of cranberries have more acid in their urine than those who don't. As I mentioned earlier, proanthocyanidin from pure cranberries are very acidic. Bacteria cannot survive in an acidic environment, the researchers speculated that a diet rich in cranberries may help and treat U.T.Is through the years scientific explanations for this has change, now this is supported by evidence as well. Proanthocyanidins is also the reason for cranberries rich color. Being that cranberries also contain high antioxidants this scavenge damages particles in the body known as free radicals which is known as being natural by-products of normal metabolism, this can alter cell membranes, tamper with genetic material known as .d.n.a, and can even cause cell death. Environmental toxins which would include things like ultraviolet light, radiation, cigarette smoking, and air pollution. All can increase the number of free radicals in the body. This can contribute to the aging process and also interfere with health problems such as heart disease, cancer and infections. Antioxidants can neutralize free radicals and may even help prevent some of the damages the do cause. Because of the high level antioxidants shown in those after drinking cranberry juice studies are being done to determine if the antioxidant ability of cranberries will translate into protection from heart disease. Proanthocyanidis appear to have cancer fighting properties and also helps microorganisms from causing infections such as U.T.Is and is an excellent source of vitamin C as I mentioned earlier. Parts used in both commercial and medical preparations is the ripe fruit of the cranberry. What it does to help treat and protect from U.T.Is is the cranberryreaches the bladder and urethra (the tube that drains the urine from the bladder.) There has been studies in elder women (193) who drank 300ml which is approximately 1 1/3 cups, of cranberry cocktail every day had less bacteria and infection in their urine than those who only drank the placebo beverage. In the study of sexually active high school students 50% had reduction in U.T.Is when consuming cranberry juice. These results are unclear when studied in children. Cranberry also has been more effective than certain probiotics in preventing recurrent U.T.Is (Probotics are friendly bacteria that inhabit the intestines and vagina and protect against the entrance and proliferation of bad organisms that causes diseases. They are often used as a SUPPLEMENT to try to prevent or fight U.T.Is. Cranberries also prevent another microorganism known as helicobacter pylori from adhering itself to cell walls, The meaning of helicobater pylori is
      a bacteria that often causes stomach ulcers, which all was studied in laboratories also. The best forms of cranberries available are as followed; fresh, frozen, in juice, in concentrated forms. There are cranberries available in a capsule or tablet form, usually taken 2 at a time. HOW DO YOU TAKE THIS:
      PEDIATRIC:
      For minor urinary infections for one at 50 lbs. (20 to 25 kg) of cranberry juice
      For a child 0.5l per day (16 ounces) of cranberry juice
      Although espeacially in any child when any type of bladder infections are suspected a doctor should be caring for these sort of problems.
      HOW DO YOU TAKE THIS IF AN ADULT:
      With juice: 3 or more fluid ounces per day
      Capsules: 6 per day-this would be equivalent to 3 fluid ounces of cranberry juice cocktail
      Fresh or frozen cranberries: 1.5 ounces-equivalent to 3 fluid ounces of cranberry juice cocktail
      PRECAUTIONS WITH THE USE OF HERBS:
      Herbs contain substances that can trigger side effects and can interact with other herbs, supplements, or medications, because of this herbs should be taken with caution and suggested to be taken only under the care of your practitioner.
      IF YOU ARE AT RISK FOR KIDNEU STONES:
      Do not consume any sort of cranberry supplement, or an excessive amount of cranberry juice unless directed by your physician.
      ANY SOURCE OF CRANBERRY SHOULD NEVER NE USED AS A SUBSTITUTE FOR ANTIBIOTICS, AND ESPEACIALLY WHEN EXPERIENCING A SERIOUS U.T.I.
      This should be fine ADDED to taking antibiotics only.
      POSSIBLE INTERACTIONS:
      There have been no scientific researches that indicate any reactions between cranberry and conventional medications.

  4. QUESTION:
    cranberry juice and h pylori?
    i just finished treatment for the infection and during the course i was told not to drink cranberry juice. but as i have been looking online i have been finding nothing but good things about using both to keep the infection away. who is right? oh and i couldnt have dairy for two weeks..should i ease my way into eating dairy?
    So now that im done with my meds (thank god!!!) will my stomach go back to normal? The last couple of days I have been feeling nauseated like had going into the beginning of the treatment...should I get retested? And can I now drink cranberry juice? I missed it a lot!! Along with dairy!!

    • ANSWER:
      pure cranberry juice (not the sweetened stuff) is quite acidic, and it makes the urine pH lower..this in turn inhibits bacteria from being able to attach to the lining of the bladder, and thus prevent or reduce the chances of bladder infection. well..maybe.
      Its antioxidant properties...and those of antioxidants as a cure all in general....are over-rated.

      It has nothing at all to do with treatment of H. pylori. A bacterium tough enough to survive in the stomach isn't going to be bothered by some juice.

      You shouldn't have any problems with dairy after treatment for H. pylori

  5. QUESTION:
    Recipes with Pure Cranberry Juice?
    I accidentally bought Pure Cranberry Juice instead of Regular. Are there any FOOD recipes that have this or i can substitute it for? Please FOOD items strictly. preferably baked goods.

    • ANSWER:
      Go to OceanSpray.com and see what recipes they offer. Otherwise, I made a warm apple cider and cranberry juice drink during the holidays from TasteOfHome.com and have seen cranberry juice used with fresh or frozen cranberries to make glazes and compotes.

      My dad used to love drinking half orange juice with half cranberry juice. Try that or even add some sherbet to it!

  6. QUESTION:
    Where can I get pure cranberry juice?

    • ANSWER:
      I like the Wal-Mart brand Sam's Choice Black Cherry Cranberry juice. It is really good!

  7. QUESTION:
    Red Wine or Cranberry Juice (in pure unsweetened form)?
    Which do you think is better for heart and anti-oxidant purposes? I'm talking about one glass of wine with dinner, not the typical North American additude towards alcohol.
    Or, Is pure unsweetened grape juice better for you than wine?

    • ANSWER:
      Pure cranberry juice wins here.

      The mild advantage that alcohol has is that it relaxes people (one glass, again, not five!) and stress is a major killer.

      But for just antioxidant benefit, pure cranberry juice is a clear winner.

  8. QUESTION:
    Where Can I buy 100 % Pure Cranberry Juice?

    Where Can I buy 100 % Pure Cranberry Juice?

  9. QUESTION:
    Does Cranberry Cocktail juice clean out your kidneys?

    • ANSWER:
      Pure cranberry juice can help clean out your kidneys, but you have to get it at a health food store and not at a supermarket. You will know when you drink it, because it is kind of tart as oppose to the cranberry cocktail juice people usually get. The cranberry juice, you get at a supermarket has too much sugar in it to be effective.

  10. QUESTION:
    Question on Cranberry Juice and Urinary Tract Infections?
    So i've read in many places Cranberry juice is excellent for the health of your urinary tract. Seeing as I suffer from a lot of UTI's this is important to me. I have some Sam's Choice Cranberry Juice Cocktail, which I just realized isn't as much cranberry juice I thought. It says it only contains 30% juice. My question is will this Sam's Choice that I have be affective for keeping my urinary tract healthy and keeping infections away? Or will it do more harm than good? Does anyone have any suggestions for a pure 100% cranberry drink they may have bough before? I've heard it's sour, but that's okay. Thanks!
    Alrite Thanks. I figured the pure juice would be better but all I have at the moment is the juice cocktail. I'll have to get some of the pills or something...

    • ANSWER:
      You need to have pure cranberry juice for it to be any good for you. This will just be like drinking regular juice, neither good no bad. If you don't like the taste of the pure juice, try taking cranberry pills that you can get from GNC, they are just a crushed form of cranberry with no additives.

  11. QUESTION:
    Good ways to drink pure Cranberry juice?
    I want to drink the pure juice for this health benefits (minor UTI right now =P ), but it's so tart! what can I mix it with to make it more bearable?

    I think it'd be good with diet pepsi, but drinking caffeine defeats the purpose of the benefits I want it for...

    • ANSWER:
      Try cutting it with water, which is good for your UTI also. Or, if you don't like mixing it with water, then cranberry juice with ginger ale, sprite, 7up or any other clear soda is really good.

  12. QUESTION:
    UTI and Cranberry Juice?
    I have a Urinary Tract Infection (diagnosed today) and I've been taking the prescribed medications which seem to be helping. I've also read that Cranberry juice is really helpful, so I went down to this nearby shop and brought some. The problem is that because I'm living on campus we don't have very healthy things around so I couldn't find any pure cranberry juice. Instead I got the Ocean Spray version which seems to be loaded with sugar... which I know is bad for a UTI.
    So, my question, would it be more beneficial to drink this for the Cranberry content or should I avoid it because of the sugars?
    Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      Cranberry juice is mildly acidic. When you drink some everyday, it pushes your pH into a very mildly acidic range, which the bacteria causing your UTI cannot thrive in. My understanding is that people who are prone to UTI's should drink cranberry juice daily as a preventive measure. Every woman gets the occasional UTI, its like a yeast infection...happens to everyone sooner or later. Be sure to see your doctor if your UTI has associated back/kidney pain or if you get them frequently.

  13. QUESTION:
    Why & How is Cranberry Juice Good For You?
    I just heard it was but never understood.
    I just bought the low-calorie kind?
    What makes it good for your body?

    • ANSWER:
      Pure cranberry juice is excellent for the kidney's and urinary tract system. Recommended highly by doctors.

  14. QUESTION:
    Why doesn't anybody make pure 100% cranberry juice?
    It's all a cranberry cocktail or something. Where's the pure cranberry juice?

    • ANSWER:
      It can be found but I think the reason it isn't so readily available in addition to the cost is that 100% Cranberry juice is too tart for most peoples tastes. Thats why its often mixed with other juices to make it less harsh on the taste buds.

  15. QUESTION:
    UTI question, about baking soda and cranberry juice 100% pure cran.....?
    I had the sensation of getting a UTI, so I recently heard baking soda and PURE 100% cranberry, and I did it and it feels better, but I still went to the dr. to get it checked out and it came back with my white blood cell count a little high and a little cloudy. He prescribed me antibiotics, but I hate taking them.......I always scared, although I usually tolerate antibiotics really well, just hate it. However, I was wondering last year I had the same thing, with nothing showing in the urine he prescribe me something and I didn't take it and I drank the cran and it went away after two days, I am just wondering if this is possible or should I take the anitbiotics....I can't seem to find anywhere were you can find test sticks in Canada to test for a infection. I feel better now, I still have a little smell to my urine not much at all, and no urge to go, and no buring during, just a little afterwards......any suggestions?
    I just wanted to add this baking soda actually balances out the PH of your urine and there for help with killing off infection. The cranberry juice works not by acidifying your urine it actually had natural PCA, which is an anti-adhere effect wich helps making the bladder easier to rid the bacteria. The Dr. actually told me baking soda will help relieve the symptoms and remove bacteria. Apple Cidar vinigar is also great, thanks for all your posts.

    • ANSWER:
      Dr Richard schulze who ran an underground clinic for 20 years especially working with dying patients said all of his patients who took what he recommended got rid of their UT. Even when antibiotics did not work 100% of the time.

      On his save your life video, he tells of a man with bone cancer on 90% of his bones who had raging baldder infections from being cauterized and burned so many times in the treatments of the metastized treatments. He had been to dozens of doctors seeking help and none of the many antibiotics they put him on helped.

      Schulze said in three days, the man called him back and left a message and he was screaming in the phone in excitement "I can't believe it..I can't believe..you cured in three days what no doctors could touch with all their drugs."

      Schulze said "I called him back and said..now we are gonna work on the bone cancer. He said the man never even considered that that could be healed..schulze said "I had him intrigued" "i could her him thinking" and he said the man went on to do his incurables program and within 6 months the cancer was healed and the man is still alive today.

      Cranberry, is more a preventative than necessarily a cure. I imagine it depends on how much bacteria you have as to if it works or not..the cranberry makes it slippery and the bacteria can't hold on well to the cell walls and is thus carried out of the body.

      Try these recommendations by schulze..

      go to herbdoc.com

      click on products. On the left hand sidebar, click on detox formulas and teas and see his kidney-bladder tea and tincture. buy these and be sure to read all he says on them by clicking on them and reading how it works why you need it etc (at the top of the pop-ups)

      here's the link

      https://web2.herbdoc.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=17&Itemid=38

      You could just by the kidney-bladder tincture but he says it works best with the kidney bladder tea and by doing the 5 day kidney-bladder cleanse.

      Doing this will have other benefits too such as detoxifying and strengthening the kidneys and bladder..clearer and making this elimination channel more effective.

      Here is how to do the 5 day cleanse.

      http://www.curezone.com/schulze/herbal_5day_kidney_cleanse.asp

      you can also read more on these two formulas here

      the book by jean carper called food pharmacy (get on amazon) has a chapter on the testing done with cranberries and bladder infections done in a medical study

      http://www.curezone.com/schulze/handbook/kbformula.asp kidney formula tincture

      http://www.curezone.com/schulze/handbook/kbtea.asp kidney tea

      be sure to make the tea with distilled water as it is empty and absorbs more of the phytochemicals in the herbs that cure and prevent disease

      I just noticed he mentioned needing to do the intestinal cleanse one and two with it. if you do this, it will greatly help your health, but you could just do the kidney bladder tincture and see how that does if money is tight.

  18. QUESTION:
    Would drinking a jug on cranberry juice and taking regular antibiotic pills get rid of a UTI?
    I really don't have a ride to the doctor, but my grandmother gave me some regular antibiotic pills. If I took these with some cranberry juice would that be equivalent to getting a prescription for a UTI (urinary tract infection)?

    • ANSWER:
      Cranberry juice is the juice of the cranberry. Commercially, it is sold in either as a pure juice, which is quite tart, or, more commonly, as cranberry juice "cocktail" or "drink" , in blends with other juices, such as apple or grape, or mixed with water and corn syrup, sugar, or an artificial sweetener (such as aspartame or sucralose). These may also be blended with other juices or flavors. The term, when used on its own, almost always refers to a sweetened drink.
      A known claim is that cranberry juice may help prevent and relieve the symptoms of urinary tract infections by primary and secondary means. The primary means works on the bacteria directly by altering the molecular structure of the fimbriae on the pathogenic strains of the bacteria that cause the infections. The properties of the proanthocyanidins in cranberries prevents the bacteria from adhering to the surface of the bladder and urinary tract. The secondary means works indirectly on the bacteria by changing the intravesical pH (the pH of the bladder's contents) making it more acidic.

      However, results from recent randomized controlled trials have been disappointing. A trial of 319 college women with an acute UTI, failed to show that drinking cranberry juice (8 oz of 27% twice daily) would reduce the incidence of a second UTI. Another study performed in The Netherlands randomised 221 women to receive either co-trimoxazole or cranberry capsules. That study found that the antibiotics were superior to cranberry capsules, but were associated with an increase in antibiotic resistance However, in an accompanying editorial, the dose of cranberries used in the study was criticised for being too low.
      Although cranberry juice may help prevent growth of bacteria, its pH may be as acidic as 2.3?2.5, which is more acidic than most soft drinks, which could potentially dissolve tooth enamel over time.

  19. QUESTION:
    Does anyone know any food recipes that involve Pure Cranberry Juice?
    I made the mistake of buying Pure Cranberry Juice...as in unsweetened and very bitter. I absolutely can't drink it. So, I was wondering if anyone knows any good recipes that I can use this in. I'm hoping for food recipes, but i'll take drinks too (nonalcoholic). Thank you.

    • ANSWER:
      I've got a cocktail recipe, you can make it without the vodka if you want. Its tart and refreshing.

      1/2 shot lemon juice
      1 shot vodka
      2 shots gingerale
      3 shots cranberry juice
      Serve over ice.

  20. QUESTION:
    Cranberry Juice & UTI Question?
    Years ago when I had gotten a few UTI's the doctor had told me that If I feel like I'm starting to get one at the first signs to start drinking cranberry juice. I'm just wondering because I don't like regular cranberry juice if the light cranberry juice is just as effective as regular? And can it be like CranGrape or does it have to be 100% cranberry juice?
    Also, do craisian's work too?

    • ANSWER:
      Make sure the cranberry juice is 100% juice. Quality cranberry juice produces hippuric acid in the urine which acidifies the urine and prevents bacteria from sticking to the walls of the bladder. If pure cranberry juice is not available, cranberry capsules can be substituted. They can be found in most health food stores. Always take these with a large glass of water.

      The light cranberry juice would be ok- so long as it was 100% juice (im assuming the 'light' version is just lower in sugar). I know cranberry juice doesnt taste great but it IS good for UTI's- have the capsules if its too much of a struggle to drink the juice. I dont think the craisians would be as effective as the juice/capsules.

      Hope that has answered your question :)

  21. QUESTION:
    Cranberry juice for UTI's?
    I'm pretty sure I have a bladder infection. I read online about the symtoms and I definately have alot of those. But I also read to drink cranberry juice. Does it have to be pure cranberry juice? or is cranberry cocktail ok?

    • ANSWER:
      It does have to be cranberry juice, but honestly in order for it to really work it can't be something like OceanSpray cran juice or something. It has to be nothing but cranberry juice because most bottled juices have corn syrup or lots of sugar added and all that sugar doesn't help for UTI's or yeast infections it makes them worse. In order for plain juice to work it has to be without sugar. Try finding an organic juice.

      OR! Go to a pharmacy and buy cranberry pills. It's like drinking a ton of juice in one pill and they are safe and over the counter herbal supplements. Also, it's best to just take cranberry pills daily or weekly, especially if you are prone to UTI's because they help regulate and prevent, not cure UTI's.

      I would try this today and drink lots of water and monitor yourself because if you leave it too long you can get really sick and be in lots of pain. If it gets worse get your self to a clinic.

  22. QUESTION:
    cranberry juice good for cleaning, so...?
    I've always been told cranberry juice is good for cleaning your kidney, thus the clear urine after I drink it. My question: Whats the benifit of a cranberry juice cleaned kidney?
    PS. I drink this stuff often.

    • ANSWER:
      Quality cranberry juice- this means 100%cranbery and not mixed in with some other juice produces hippuric acid in the urine which acidifies the urine and prevents bacteria from sticking to the walls of the bladder.

      What is better than cranberry juice because often the sugar in the cranberry juice will allow the bacteria to feed off of it and produce more is pure cranberry extract that you can put into water or juice or pure cranberry tablets.

      I have much experience with UTI, bladder, and kidney infection thru the years.

      Also if you do get one going alreay you can take Colloidal Silver and it will clear up after a few days.

  24. QUESTION:
    UTI ... Is Cranberry Juice Enough? Please Help...?
    So I am pretty sure I have developed a bladder infection or UTI. I woke up this morning and it burned a little a hurt a bit when I went to the bathroom. I have had 2 tall glasses of water, 1 cup of coffee and 1 tall glasses of Cranberry juice so far today. I am now working on my 3rd tall glass of water. I notice that it doesn't hurt to go but it still burns a little and I've been going to the bathroom all day. I read that drinking cranberry juice and lots of water often resolves this. If anyone has any other ideas on home remedies, or hollistic approaches, I'd really appreciate it. I have had too many antibiotics in the past 2 years and would hate to have to go that route again. Please, no horror stories. Thanks so much!

    • ANSWER:
      When using cranberry juice, there are 2 important points to remember.
      1) The cranberry juice must be 100% pure UN-sweetened cranberry juice
      2) Its better taken in small frequent doses throughout the day so that there is a constant supply to prevent the infection from adhering the the walls of the urinary tract

      There are a few urinary antiseptic herbs that work well as teas taken throughout the day: Bearberry, Buchu, and Pau D'arco. Marshmallow root, though not an antiseptic, provides soothing relief to an irritated urinary tract.

      When I have had a UTI, this is what I do...
      1) Drink 1/4 cup pure cranberry juice every 4 hours.
      2) Drink 1/4 cup tea (every 4 hours between cranberry doses) made with Buchu, Bearberry or Pau D'arco. In order for Bearberry to work your urine needs to be alkaline. To accomplish this just add a little baking soda to the tea.
      3) Mix 4 tsp marshmallow root per liter of water, and let it infuse overnight. The next day drink this instead of water between doses of cranberry juice and the other herbal tea.

      You should be able to find all these ingredients at your local health food store.

  25. QUESTION:
    Does Cranberry juice help cure a bladder infection? ?
    I always heard that cranberry juice helps bladder infections... would like some feed back on that.

    • ANSWER:
      It might help, and you must use Pure Cranberry Juice, Not store bought cocktail juices. Read more about it
      http://www.livestrong.com/article/97744-cranberry-juice-bladder-infection/

      Also, FYI
      Every bladder infection can fairly be categorized as a urinary tract infection, although not every urinary tract infection is a bladder infection. The urinary tract consist of the kidneys, bladder, ureters and uretha. Any of these individual organs can become infected. These infections begin when bacteria enters the body and works its way to a particular organ.

      On the Other: Just A Manner of Speech
      Because the bladder is part of the urinary tract, some people simply refer to the infection in the broadest possible terms.

      Bottom Line
      No, a urinary tract infection is not the same thing as a bladder infection. If you were to contract a bladder infection it could be referred to in more general terms as a urinary tract infection. However, there are other organs in the urinary tract that can be infected without harming the bladder.

  26. QUESTION:
    Cranberry Juice Cleanseing The Body.?
    To Flush/Cleanse Your System With Pure Cranberry Juice. What is Best? Drinking It Straight or Mixing it With Water? If So How Much Water?

    • ANSWER:
      Cranberry doesn't cleanse the system... it helps support urinary tract health. If you're talking about cleansing the urinary tract (like for a UTI), then it would work the same either with or without added water as long as there's no sugar added to the juice (that's the important part).
      If you're referring to it cleaning drugs out of your system, that is a myth. THC for example is stored in the fat cells so Cranberry would have no impact on that. Good luck and I hope I helped!

  27. QUESTION:
    Is cranberry Juice good for you?
    if so in what way?

    • ANSWER:
      Yes, cranberry juice is good for you. It is an effective fighter against urinary uract infections and heart disease. However, to reap the health benefits, the juice should be 100% juice with no preservatives, artificial flavors, or artificial colors. Quite often you will find that many brands of cranberry juice are in fact only 30% juice, and not all of it cranberry, with the remainder made from sweeteners and water. You will not be receiving the full spectrum of health benefits and nutrients inherent in 100% pure cranberry juice.

      Besides its high mix of natural vitamins and minerals, cranberry juice is also highly effective in the treatment of urinary tract, bladder and kidney infections. Additionally, a healthy dose of dietary fiber, antioxidants and phytochemical nutrients help to protect you against heart disease and cancer.

      Rich with Vitamin C, the high amount of acid and other beneficial components in cranberry juice can help break down and prevent the formation of kidney stones.

      Detailed Benefits:

      Reduced Infections - Drinking cranberry juice is a proven way to treat a bladder infection or urinary tract infection. This is especially helpful for women who suffer from these painful infections during the year.

      Improved Dental Health - Cranberry juice contains bacteria fighting ingredients that can prevent bacteria from attaching to your teeth. This harmful bacteria causes cavities as well as gum disease. What does this mean to you? It means that you can easily find yourself having fewer cavities when you go and see your dentist in the future.

      Calcium - Many of the makers of cranberry juice add calcium into their juice that helps strengthen bones and teeth. This is another reason why drinking cranberry juice can help reduce the risk of getting osteoporosis. This is a big concern as you get older in life.

      Reduce Risk Of Heart Disease - New scientific studies are showing that drinking cranberry juice can reduce the chances of getting heart disease if you have high cholesterol.

      For some, cranberry juice may not have the flavor or taste as they would like. It is a rather tart tasting drink for sure. What is the solution to this problem? Cranberry juice cocktail of course. Like the name implies, cranberry juice cocktail has other types of juices in it such as raspberry or orange among others. What this does is help give the juice a better tasting flavor without the tartness.

      You will can find certain brands of cranberry juice at your local grocery store that has already been sweetened with sugar. The only problem with this is that you are adding additional calories and carbohydrates which may not be what you really want.

  28. QUESTION:
    drinking cranberry juice?
    a friend told me that drinking cranberry juice will help and flush out my system more than water. she also told me that you can lose more weight from urinating than poop. is this true? any info please! thanks!
    cranberry has more of everything(sugar, calories..) wouldn't that be worse than water?!

    • ANSWER:
      i think poop helps you lose weight too! when you poop you feel lighter, but yes, urinating is also extremely beneficial because it helps you flush out water which adds to your weight. I think you need to poop and pee often since you do eat everyday! (I suffer from constipation unfortunately..

      I dont think that cranberry juice can substitute water. buy pure cranberry juice. when you read the ingredients it should just be cranberry juice, nothing else! I know a brand called knoods (something like that or lakewood..) I bought it at whole foods. this juice is 100 percent cranberry juice, you need to add water to it because it so pure. cost me about 10 dollars (I live in nyc so it might be more expensive here) it also helps if you have uti

      overall: yes, drink cranberry juice, it has many benefits but do not forget water and vegetable.

  29. QUESTION:
    A lot of sugar in cranberry juice?
    I really enjoy drinking cranberry juice, but after looking on the label, it has like 33 grams of sugar per 8 oz serving, which is as much if not more than a coke, and I wonder if it is still a healthy choice.

    Is this ok fruit sugar or the high fructose corn syrup bad sugar? I can't find pure cranberry juice, its cocktail always. I drink it because I always figured it was a healthy choice and better than water because it had lots of healthy junk it it, but not sure now. Also, why is it drinks like that produce a lot of mucus junk in the back of your throat?

    • ANSWER:
      If you want good cranberry juice, there are other options out there that are very similar to what you're used to drinking--actually, I think it tastes better! I get that horrible mucus from those drinks too.

      Below is a link to my favorite brand of juices, R. W. Knudsen's. You can buy their products at most mainstream health food stores. They offer cranberry nectar and pure cranberry juice. The nectar is sweetened with real fruit juices. The pure stuff is extremely tart and should be diluted with water and can be sweetened with apple or grape juice. I tend to sweeten things with agave nectar. It metabolizes slowly and tastes great. You can also find that at health food stores. FYI: Knudsen's also makes an excellent natural Gatorade type drink too called Recharge.

      http://www.knudsenjuices.com/products/detail.aspx?groupID=8&categoryID=54&flavorID=145&productID=215

      Trader Joe's also may have some options too.

      High fructose corn syrup is very unhealthy in so many ways. I would stay away from it as much as possible. Most filtered or spring waters are the healthiest beverages. Even natural fruit juices need to be consumed in moderation. Your body can only process so much sugar, and developing diabetes is a valid concern.

  31. QUESTION:
    Can cranberry juice be given to an adult cat for a Urinary Tract Infection until he can get to vet?
    I have an adult male cat, he's 6 years old, his name is Clarence. Probably 1-2 times per year, he developes a urinary tract infection and we just go to the local vet and get antibiotics to clear it up. We had to begin paying on our car this week and he didn't start showing obvious symptoms until yesterday, but I'm sure it's another UTI, because it's the same every time it happens. I can't get him to the vet until this tomorrow afternoon and am wondering if there is anything I can do to help ease the pain until then, or help it get better. Can I give him cranberry juice? Is there anything inexpensive I can do to help him until tomorrow when I can afford to get the antibiotics? Please don't try to say I'm a bad pet owner, I love our cats very much, we just have been having a rough time with bills lately and it's almost impossible for us to keep enough cash on us to cover unexpected emergencies at all times.

    • ANSWER:
      Well cranberry juice cannot be used since it contains sugar and isn't acyually pure cranberry. However, you can give you cat cranberry tablets or capsules made to prevent human UTI's. My cat would get UTI's all the time and the vet would give her Antibiotics and a few months later it would come back. We went to a few other vets and one of them suggested adding a pinch of pure cranberry powder into her wet food and force feeding her water twice a day and she hasn't had a UTI since....There was even times where there would be blood present in the urine and the UTI would always come back and the vet bills would pile and pile until one smart vet gave us this suggestion... so you could try that until you can take your cat to the vet and then ask if it's okay to coninue on giving him cranberry. You can get it at just about any drugstore or Wal-mart and a bottle of 60 tablets costs about . We just mash up the tablet and mix in half of it with her food and she cant even taste it.

  33. QUESTION:
    any one here drink cranberry juice, is it pleasant tasting?
    how much can you drink of the juice, do you dilute it. Which is the best brand to buy that is natural. Im in Sydney Australia. anything you can tell me about it would be appreciated as I ve heard that it good for metabolism and respiratory.

    • ANSWER:
      If you are going to buy pure cranberry juice you might want to dilute it one part juice with three parts water or soda water, it is extremely tart and sour. I'm not sure of the brands in Australia but check the label to read pure not from concentrate and definitely no additives. (it's great for urinary tract health as well) It will be very dark red in colour. If it's still too tart when you dilute it add some honey or agave nectar. There's not really a set "limit" so to speack of how much you can drink, but if you over do it you gould get the runs, or an upset stomach, a couple of glasses a day wouldn't hurt to start off with.

      Good Luck! :)

    Cranberry juice for UTI?
    Alright so I got UTI a few days ago and I just got my antibiotics for it..
    I was told to drink a lot of cranberry juice so I bought a bottle, but turns out it's cranberry soda! Will it be ok or should I go buy the cranberry juice?

    • ANSWER:
      Your cranberries have been diluted with the soda (and I wouldn't be surprised if there is sugar, corn syrup or HFCS too). Go ahead and drink it, but you'll help your UTI move along faster by drinking pure cranberry juice. Avoid UTI's by going tinkle after intercourse.

    Cranberry juice is it bad?
    Well the past 3 days ive drank at least 7 cartons of cranberry juice and its worked wonders thanks to it ive been able to go number (2) more and also my urine is more freely flowing but now im going over board with taken number (2) is this because I have drank too much vitamin c?

    Please help thank you.

    • ANSWER:
      Anything can be bad if you have too much!

      Most cranberry 'juices' are actually cranberry DRINKS, that are not pure juice. These can be laced with sugar, colourings, additives, and other harmful substances (aspartame, for example) which can be bad for your 'number 2s' among other things.

      However! Cranberry juice has been proven to prevent Cystitis (urinary tract infections of the urethra, bladder, and kidneys), and is also good for keeping your fluid systems working well.

      So carry on drinking it, but just a little bit at a time. And make sure the rest of your diet is balanced too :)

    • ANSWER:
      Yes, there is pure cranberry juice. It's not made by any of the major brands you find at the grocery store. Retail cranberry juice is diluted with water so it tastes good. Pure cranberry juice is way potent.

  38. QUESTION:
    what is in Cranberry juice, that makes it so good for you?

    • ANSWER:
      About Cranberries
      (from The Cranberry Institute - link below)

      History

      The North American cranberry industry has a long and distinguished history. Native peoples used cranberries as food, in ceremonies and medicinally. Revolutionary War veteran Henry Hall planted the first commercial cranberry beds in Dennis Massachusetts in 1816. Today cranberries are farmed on approximately 40,000 acres (16,200 hectares) across the northern United States and Canada.

      Botany

      The North American cranberry, Vaccinium macrocarpon, Aiton, is a member of the family Ericaceae that is composed of about 1350 species including Scotch Heather (Calluna vulgaris), Rhododendrons (Rhododendron spp.) and Blueberries (Vaccinium augustifolium, V. corymbosum). Cranberries are a low-growing, vining, woody perennial plant with small, alternate, ovate leaves. The plant produces stolons (horizontal stems) up to 6 feet (2 m) long. Short vertical branches, or uprights, 2 to 8 inches (5 to 20 cm) in height, grow from buds on the stolons and these can be either vegetative or fruiting. Each fruiting upright may contain as many as seven flowers. Pollination is primarily via domestic honey bees.

      Harvest Information

      The majority of cranberries are harvested between September and October, and occurs in one of two ways. By far the most common is wet or water harvest. The beds are flooded and the fruit is "beaten" off the vine using a specialized harvester. The floating fruit is then corralled and loaded onto trucks for delivery to a receiving station. Wet harvested fruit is used for processed cranberry products like juice and sauce. Dry harvested fruit is "combed" from the vines using a mechanized picking machine. No water is involved during this process. The fruit is loaded into bins and shipped to receiving stations where it is cleaned and packaged as fresh fruit. To see pictures of both types of cranberry harvest visit the photo gallery.

      Consumer Information

      Scientific research is revealing how healthful cranberries can be. Packed with nutrients like antioxidants and other natural compounds, cranberries are a great choice for the health conscious consumer. Cranberries are available in a wide variety of forms including fresh fruit, juice, sauce, and dried. Juices and sauce are available year-round at your grocery retailer. Fresh fruit is generally available from September to December. Include more cranberries in your diet today and start eating healthier today.

      The Benefits of Cranberry Juice
      Published on: May 10, 2003

      by Melissa T. Shultz

      You may have heard that drinking cranberry juice helps ward away urinary infections. Now comes more good reasons to drink up ? a new study finds that the juice can lower the risk of heart disease for people with high cholesterol, and provide antioxidant benefits.

      This is the first scientific proof that the juice, long thought to have cholesterol-lowering benefits, actually does. For the study, researchers measured the cholesterol levels of 19 people with high cholesterol, who had a risk of heart disease. Each participant drank 27% pure cranberry juice, commonly found in supermarkets. The participants were divided into two groups. Ten drank cranberry juice with artificial sweetener, 9 with sugar. For the first month, each consumed one eight-ounce glass a day, for the second month, two glasses, and for the third, three glasses. Their cholesterol was tested each month.

      Three glasses per day raised good cholesterol 10%, which in turn decreased their risk of heart disease by 40%. The antioxidant benefits were noticeable with just one or two glasses a day. Antioxidants are dietary substances that in small amounts will slow or prevent the oxidation process. This means they can help prevent or fix damage to your cells. They may also lower your risk for cancer or infection and improve how your immune system functions. In addition to cranberry juice, dried cranberries contain antioxidants, more than most fruits. Grape juice is also a good source (though not as good as cranberry juice).

      The bottom line: Drinking anywhere from one to three glasses a day of cranberry juice provides health benefits. The antioxidant effects of cranberry juice may last for seven hours. All the findings confirm recommendations that more fruit and vegetables be part of your everyday diet.

  39. QUESTION:
    Is it true that Cranberry juice is good for your health?
    I hear some stories about it, but I am not sure if they are true. Even my grandma says it is good for your health, but in what way?

    • ANSWER:
      Cranberry juice is a tasty, refreshing fruit drink, but many people don't realize that it is also quite healthy. The best cranberry juice should be 100% juice with no preservatives, artificial flavors, or artificial colors. Quite often you will find that many brands of cranberry juice are in fact only 30% juice, and not all of it cranberry, with the remainder of the beverage made from sweeteners and water.

      100% pure cranberry juice can sometimes be bitter or tart. If so, try mixing a glass with some apple juice. Additionally, be sure to check the ingredients of your purchase. Many labels will simply say 100% juice, which does not necessarily mean 100% cranberry juice, but rather a mixture of juices, with cranberry being dominant. This type of product is still a far cry healthier than the artificial juices, and may be preferred if the taste of pure cranberry juice is not to your liking. Studies have dictated that only 30% cranberry juice of a 100% juice mixture is necessary to receive the beneficial vitamins and nutrients, as well as other health benefits imparted by cranberry juice.

      Besides its high mix of natural vitamins and minerals, cranberry juice is also highly effective in the treatment of urinary tract, bladder and kidney infections. Additionally, a healthy dose of dietary fiber, antioxidants and phytochemical nutrients help to protect you against heart disease and cancer.

      Rich with Vitamin C, the high amount of acid and other beneficial components in cranberry juice can help break down and prevent the formation of kidney stones. Used for centuries to treat urinary tract infections, its benefit in those areas is already well-known. But perhaps a lesser known fact is that cranberry juice also contains components that help prevent the formation of oral bacteria that lead to gum disease and plaque.

  40. QUESTION:
    Can cranberry Juice clear up a uti?
    I've read that cranberry juice can clear up an uti or even taking cranberry pills can too? My uti is not a strong case. I have no blood or anything in the urine. Just the urge to urinate every hour. Also, I cannot afford to go the doctors either. Any help is appreciated, thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      It can help yes. It has to be pure cranberry juice, and you can get the pills at GNC. Also drink lots of water. Unfortunately if it doesn't clear up or gets worse you may have to go to the doctor.


pure cranberry juice

Treating Infant Eczema

Eczema, or dermatitis, is an inflammatory rash that is red, swollen, and blistered, or scaly and itchy. It has affected millions over the world. Unfortunately, there is no cure for eczema but we can definitely do something to manage it.

Milk compress: If you are suffering an eczema flare up, soak a cloth in cold milk and apply it to the affected area for about fifteen minutes. This will calm the itching.

Lemon contains citric acid and has bleaching, antibacterial and de-greasing qualities. Use half a lemon to clean the bath and wash basins. Lemon can be used as a natural bleach to brighten clothing and bed linen. Soak the clothing and bed linen in a bucket of water juiced with lemon overnight before washing. Lemon also acts as a deodorizer. Placing a few slices of lemon in the fridge helps in keeping the fridge fresh.

It is also important to watch exactly what your child eats and what your child drinks. Although your child may eat skin healthy foods, then some foods can trigger eczema outbreaks, like seeded fruits. You can keep a log of the foods and drinks, then you can determine what was consumed, before every outbreak and make changes to the diet. There is eczema treatment for children that work very well and they are all natural and safe for children and babies.

When you have eczema, you have to be careful with the things that your skin comes into close contact with, especially skincare and beauty products. Items such as perfume and cosmetics are one of the leading causes of eczema. If you think your skin is allergic to certain compounds in skincare products, then opt for all-natural products, which may help to stop skin irritation and itching and are better for your skin in general.
