Treating Urinary Tract Infections with doTerra Essential Oils




Urinary Tract Infections

An infection can occur in any part of the Urinary Tract.  Depending on where in the system the infection is, the infection can be called different things.  It can occur in the urethra (urethritis), the bladder wall (interstitial cystitis), or the kidneys (pyelonephritis).

Although I have never had a Urinary Tract Infection I know they are a very common ailment for women and can be uncomfortable and even painful.  If they aren't treated, they can progress to the kidneys and cause serious problems.

Below, I have listed recommendations from three sources and then summarized what I would do.  At the end of the post, I also listed a simple, cheaper alternative.  Make sure you use only CPTG oils.

Recommendations from everythingessentialme.com:

 For adults:
·    Fill a 00 capsule with 2 drops Frankincense, 6 drops On Guard, 6 drops Oregano.
·   Take one capsule, 3 times per day.
·   Also drink 1/2 cup of unsweetened, natural cranberry juice (not the grocery store type but that purchased in a health food store) 3 times per day.  This is bitter but worth the distasteful experience.
·    Continue 2 or 3 days after the discomfort stops.

For children:
·   1/2 cup of of unsweetened, natural cranberry juice (not the grocery store type but that purchased in a health food store) 3 times per day.  This is quite bitter and may need to be sweetened with honey.
·   Add 3 drops of On Guard to the cranberry juice.
·   (if the cranberry juice is too distasteful put the On Guard in a capsule and fill with cranberry juice).
·    Topically apply 1-2 drops of Oregano to the bottom of the feet 3 times per day.

For everyone:
·   Drink lots of water and add 1 to 2 drops of Lemon essential oil to each glass of water.
Most frequently a UTI is a bacterial infection and experience suggests that starting oils as soon as the UTI is suspected and being very aggressive with the frequency of application can reduce the time of discomfort significantly.  Also, to be safe from re-occurrence, continue the oils for a week after the symptoms have subsided.

Recommendations from Boyd Truman per his book, Dr. Me, in order of importance:

1-Drink 2-3 drops On Guard in water.
2-Take 3 drops each of basil, cinnamon, and oregano in a gel cap.
3-Rub basil, oregano, bergamot, cinnamon, On Guard, cilantro or AromaTouch on bottoms of feet each day.
4-Symphony of Cells spinal treatment Digestive.
5-Eucalyptus, rosemary, sandalwood and Purify can also be used.

Recomendations per Modern Essentials book in order of effectiveness for most people:

1-Apply Purify and lemongrass topically.  
2-Can also diffuse lemongrass.
3-Combine one drop On Guard with 1 drop oregano; apply as a hot compress over abdomen and pubic area.
4-Sandalwood, thyme, basil, cinnamon and clove can also be used.

So, with all these recommendations, what I would do if I had a UTI:

1-Add lemon (6 drops) and On Guard (6 drops) to my water several times a day and drink it or add the lemon and On Guard to the gel cap below.

2-Fill a gel cap with 6 drops basil, 3 drops cinnamon, 2-6 drops oregano and 2 drops frankincense and take it 3 times a day continuing for a couple of days after symptoms are gone to be safe.  (Amount of oils requires a large gel cap (00)  or two small gel caps (0)) or else mix with a couple tablespoons of water and drink it down.  Be careful as the oregano and cinnamon are hot.  I wouldn't recommend drinking more than one to two drops of oregano at a time.  Oregano is best in a gel cap!)

3-For severe cases, I would also take a dried cranberry supplement and a corn silk supplement in gel caps (purchased from health food store).

4-Rub one of the following oils, oregano, bergamot, cinnamon, On Guard, cilantro or AromaTouch, on bottoms of feet each day.

5-For discomfort or pain, combine one drop On Guard with 1 drop oregano; apply as a hot compress over abdomen and pubic area.

The Cheaper, Simpler Version using what is in the Family Physician Kit:

1-Fill a gel cap with 6 drops lemon, 6 drops On Guard, 2-6 drops oregano and 2 drops frankincense and take it 3 times a day (continuing for a couple of days after symptoms are gone to be safe.)  Or mix the oils with a couple tablespoons of water and drink it down quickly.  Be careful as the oregano is  hot.  I wouldn't recommend drinking more than two drops of oregano at a time.  Oregano is best in a gel cap!
2-Rub On Guard or oregano on bottoms of feet each day.
5-For discomfort or pain, combine one drop On Guard with 1 drop oregano; apply as a hot compress over abdomen and pubic area.

D-mannose is the sugar from cranberries. When taken internally, it binds to the lectins on the e-coli bacteria (which is responsible for most UTIs), and makes it impossible for them to stick to the walls of the urinary tract. They are all flushed out with the urine. There are no side effects, and it can be taken in large amounts. I take a heaping spoonful in water every time I urinate until symptoms are gone. It doesn't affect blood sugar, so is safe for diabetics.
