Help with chronic Ecoli UTII am a 60 yr old woman who has had a recurring UTI for over 4 years (e-coli always confirmed by lab testing). I have been on antibiotics for this UTI repeatedly for 4 years. It goes away when taking antibiotics and comes back 3 days after stopping antibiotics. I have burning during and after urinating. I have nitrites on urinalysis sticks every morning along with leukocytes and sometimes speckled blood. I have been controlling the infection by drinking the juice of one lemon, 1/2 cup water, and 1/4 tsp baking soda twice a day. If I do this I only have nitrites first morning urine. If I do not do this, I have nitrites all day and the infection gets worse.
I did a very thorough and successful candida cleanse and healed leaky gut. A homeopath in here was helping me with my UTI but is no longer available. Here is the list of remedies he had me try:
Advised to try Cantharis 30C 1 pill 2x/day for 2-3 days - nitrites changed to light pink, leukocytes went dark purple.
Advised to try Cantharis 200C 1 or 2 x /day for a few days - no change in symptoms - nitrites so dark almost red
Advised to try collibacillinum 30C: (I ordered 200C by mistake) and took 1 pill 2x/day - Headache in my temples ( both sides ) and at back of my head where neck joins is tense. It also feels as if I had a sinus infection. Pressure behind the eyes, across bridge of nose and under eyes. No pain when pressed. I had chronic sinus infections in my mid 20's/30's always treated with antibiotics repeatedly. I have post nasal drip (one nostril is always plugged and has been this way for 3 decades - the stuffiness moves from one side to the other and always has) so the post nasal drip isn't new but the amount of it is more I think. Foggy brain, slower at thinking and doing things. I have to think before speaking or doing anything. Can't find words etc. I felt as if I could stay in bed all day. UTI symptoms still show nitrites and leukocytes and sometimes speckled blood but speckled blood is less. Nitrites showed up on sticks slower than usual. Usually it is pink/dark pink immediately when dipped. While the headache and sinus like symptoms are subsided, my right ear started to ache. Through my 30's/40's I had chronic ear infections in the right ear. Always treated with antibiotics. My right ear has crackled for about 20 yrs since the ear infections stopped. I have gone through bouts of chronic infections my whole life. Small child to teen = chronic tonsillitis repeatedly treated with antibiotics. Then they suddenly stopped in early teen years and then I developed chronic strep late teen years until early 20's always treated with antibiotics and then that stopped. Then late 20's into 30's chronic sinus infections always treated with antibiotics and they too suddenly stopped, 30's to 40's chronic ear infection always treated with antibiotics which of course suddenly stopped and now here we into my 60's with chronic UTI 's .
Lots of tonsil stones coming out. UTI symptoms the same
Advised to try collibacillinum 200C: One dose per week for a few weeks. NO change in UTI symptoms. Ear crackling is less but still there. Fewer tonsil stones but still there. Less post nasal drip but still there
Advised to try Merc Corr 30C and purchase 200C as well: Homeopath who was helping me will not be online again for a long time.
I am looking for someone else to help?

Please take the following remedies;
Medorrhinum 200c once a week for 4 weeks and
Staphysagria 30c twice a day for 2 weeks then report back in 3 -4 weeks.
1 dose is 2 pills or drops.
♥ Tui 6 months agoThank you! I will have to order some staphysagria 30C. Do I take both the medorrhinum and staph at the same time or do I take the medorrhinum first and then at the end of the 4 wks take the staph?
Juniorcat 6 months agoThank you. I have ordered the staph and will post after 4 wks of taking Medorrhinum & 2 wks of staph once I receive it.
Juniorcat 6 months agoTomorrow will be my 4th dose of Medorrhinum 200C. I have completed 2 wks of staphysagria 30C twice a day and have so far taken 3 weekly doses of medorrhinum.
Day 2 of staph 30c caused an increase in UTI symptoms. Burning urethra, stinging before during and after urinating.
Nitrites leukocytes speckled blood on sticks AM urine
Leuks specks rest of day. Nausea most of day. But not much else as far as UTI goes. I am not sure if staph helps with old sinus/ear infections or not but I have had some symptoms of that as well.
Some days I had diarrhea multiple times.
Each weekly dose of medorrinum causes increased UTI symptoms for 2 days or so with feeling sick, tired, lethargic, clammy, stinging before and after urinating, increased DARK pink nitrites, DARK purple leuks & speckled blood then back to the usual irritated urethra, pink nitrites, light purple leuks after a couple of days.
Each weekly dose of medorrinum also brings out sinus infection feeling for a few days. Pressure across nose and above eyes. Stuffed head feeling, malaise, unwell feeling and right tonsil felt swollen but not sore. I have had quite a few tonsil stones come out on right side which taste horrible but glad they are coming out. Right ear still crackles but less pressure than before. Thick post nasel drip draining. Tastes of infection. Lots of throat clearing.
Had a couple of dreams. One was a small tree being cut down. Remember nothing else in that dream or other ones.
Morning urge/sting of urethra not as intense as before when first waking up.
Juniorcat 5 months agoNo nothing at all. Everything that I have been feeling are things I have felt through my life during chronic ear , throat, sinus and UTI infections
Juniorcat 5 months agook, so you are having the return of old symptoms. They usually will last for a few days ( or sometimes weeks) then recede. And they will not return again.
A return of old symptom is usually mild and short lasting, but if your symptom is severe, then you may stop all the remedies and wait until it subsides.
♥ Tui 5 months agoOk I can handle how I am feeling so will continue on and take my last dose tomorrow. Do you want me to report back in a week?
Juniorcat 5 months agoWell it has been a week. There has been a little change in the UTI symptoms. Still have dark pink nitrites every morning, and during the day they are lighter IF I DRINK lemon water all day long. Leukocytes are slower to show up. Blood specks are much less on some days and much more on other days. Urgency is still there although not as bad. Irritated feeling urethra still there. Anxiety has increased from what it was. I also now have some discomfort right side below ribs, mid belly sort of. I also had a dream that I can remember parts of which hasn't happened in years. I'm not sure if you are interested in dreams so I will put it in here just in case. I was somewhere like a mall but it was also like a home. I got on a small train to go upstairs. When I got upstairs I realized I left my purse and phone downstairs. I couldn't find my way back downstairs. I asked a stranger if I could use their phone to call my husband but that phone would not work. I asked another stranger and again that phone would not work for me. That is all I remember. I was not anxious in the dream or scared. I was worried that my husband would not be able to find me.
