  • apple cider vinegar with the mother (Braggs Farm)

    First new here. My 28 year son became paralyzed below the chest due to staph infection back in August. His mother and I are now his caregiver and living with him at his house. He has had three UTIs in last month and antibiotics quickly take care of them. We were told by another paralyzed subject (8 years) at his rehab to take a shot of Braggs apple cider vinegar in the morning and he claims he hasn't had one in seven years. The urologist said the usual cranberry juice but he said the vinegar may work. Just wondering if anyone else heard of this or does it, thanks.[IMG]/forum/images/icons/icon5.png[/IMG]

    Yes, if you can tolerate the apple cider vinegar it does help some people. Not everyone responds to it so give it three months and see how your son does on it.

    My urologist believes that cranberry juice is just wasted calories and says that if you can afford it, do the cranberry pills instead. The pills are quite expensive.

    However, if you are not incorporating a clean urological technique than doing all the prophylactic stuff will not stop an infection.

      How does he manage his bladder...intermittent catheter, urethral catheter, supra pubic catheter, or external catheter?

        Cranberry pills works for me. I used have frequent UTI. I haven't had one (knock on the wood) since I started taking daily cranberry pills 2 years ago. I get big bottles from Costco.

            What is the organism causing the UTI? Concentrated cranberry extract (& D-mannose) help E. Coli. Methanamine might help others by changing pH . I don't think a tablespoon of ACV once or twice a day is enough to make a difference but it certainly won't hurt you. Does he like onions, tomatoes and cucumbers- mix it with the apple cider vinegar and it makes a great salad.
