Prostate Gland Infection
What You Must Know
The Most Personal of Men's Health Concerns
Acute and chronic prostate infection or inflammation, also called prostatitis, along with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) have become a major medical problem in adult males.
This website is intended to allow you to manage your own prostate care, ask the right questions, insist on adequate management and information to become an informed patient, and seek an optimal outcome for yourself.
Perhaps it will even help health professionals who are giving care - urologists and prostate specialists - to appreciate and, hopefully, consider the alternative UTI treatment, more natural and lifestyle-based.
When it comes to prostate care, you need to stay alert, ask questions, and ultimately rely on yourself for important healthcare decisions. By applying these guidelines, you will be able to take control of your health, just as we all should do.
Prostatitis, often described as an infection of the prostate gland (a gland near the bottom of the bladder, close to the urethra), can also be an inflammation with no sign of any infection - a condition called nonbacterial prostatitis.
This non-contagious disease, however, affects 50 percent of men of all ages during their lifetimes.
Unfortunately, low-grade prostatitis is often missed on a doctor visit. Therefore, you may experience no symptoms or symptoms so sudden and severe that you have to seek emergency medical care.
When you are approaching age 50, you should look for any of the following:
- a decrease in the force of your urine stream,
- difficulty in beginning of urination,
- dribbling after you urinate, or
- a feeling that your bladder is not totally empty after you finish urinating.
These could also be symptoms of an enlarged prostate, a condition called benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) causing the buildup of urine in the bladder, which increases the likelihood that pathogenic bacteria will grow and trigger an infection.
When present, symptoms of bacterial prostate infection, often caused by "staph" infection, usually include:
- frequent urge to urinate,
- difficulty urinating,
- pain or burning during urination,
- fullness in the rectum,
- chills and fever, or
- muscular pain.
Other symptoms of prostate infection or inflammation may include pain that comes and goes:
- in the lower abdomen,
- in the penis,
- in the testicles,
- in the groin,
- the the back, or
- around the anus
Other symptoms of prostate infection or inflammation may include:
- cludy urine,
- blood in the urine,
- blood in the semen (rarely, especially due to the "staph" infection), and
- painful ejaculation.
In some cases, bacteria can get into the tube that carries sperm from the testicles to the urethra (vas deferens), causing groin pain or an infection of the area near the testicles where sperm mature and are stored (epididymis). The prostate may swell, causing a less forceful urine stream.
Prostate Infection: Possible Causes and Risks
Only a small number of cases are passed on through sex. In most cases, the prostate becomes infected by the bacteria that may get into the prostate from the urethra by backward flow of infected urine into:
- the prostate, or
- the rectum.
Certain conditions and medical procedures increase the risk of developing prostatitis. You are at higher risk for getting prostatitis if you:
- have had a recent bladder infection,
- recently have had a medical instrument, such as a urinary catheter (a soft, lubricated tube used to drain urine from the bladder), inserted during a medical procedure,
- engage in rectal intercourse,
- have an abnormal urinary tract,
- have an enlarged prostate, a condition called benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) or
- have an autoimmune disease (an abnormal reaction of the body to the prostate tissue).
Three Types of Prostate Infection
There are three types of prostatitis:
1. Nonbacterial prostatitis - when no definite infection can be identified. Men with nonbacterial prostatitis often have signs of inflammation in their urine (discovered by examining the urine under a microscope), but no bacteria are found.
2. Acute infectious (or bacterial) prostatitis - sudden bacterial infection characterized by inflammation of the prostate. The symptoms are usually severe.
Acute bacterial prostatitis requires prompt treatment, as the condition can lead to:
- urinary bladder infections
- abscesses in the prostate or, in extreme cases,
- completely blocked urine flow.
In some cases, acute prostatitis requires hospitalization.
3. Chronic (long-lasting) prostatitis - the most common form of the disease, usually caused by bacteria.
Chronic prostatitis affects men differently, with varying degrees of discomfort or pain. In fact, it is the number one reason men under the age of 50 visit a urologist. (In some cases, chronic prostatitis follows an attack of acute prostatitis).
Chronic prostatitis may also be associated with repeated bladder infections which are usually the primary symptom of chronic infectious prostatitis.
Diagnosis of Prostate Infection
If your doctor suspects that you have prostatitis or another prostate problem, in order to confirm the diagnosis, he or she may refer you to a urologist - a doctor who specializes in diseases of the urinary tract and the male reproductive system.
Typically, you will undergo a comprehensive examination including:
- a digital rectal exam and/or
- a biopsy (if the doctor is still not sure what you have)
- voiding studies and, when needed,
- magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) tests.
Voiding studies: This test involves collecting urine in three (3) containers to measure the presence of infection-fighting cells and bacteria in the urine and prostate fluid and help determine which part of the urinary system is infected.
You will be asked to collect two (2) urine samples separately:
- first, you urinate the first ounce into a container (urine from your urethra) and then
- another sample of flowing, midstream urine (urine from your bladder).
You will then almost empty your bladder by urinating into the toilet.
At this point, the doctor will massage your prostate through a rectal exam and will use a slide to collect any secretions from the penis.
Lastly, you will collect in a third container the first ounce of urine that remains in your bladder.
Looking at these samples will help your doctor determine whether the problem is in your:
- bladder and/or
If an infection is present, your doctor will also be able to identify the type of bacteria involved so that the most effective medicine can be prescribed.
Prostate Infection: Standard Medical Treatment
Treatments vary among urologists and are tailored according to the type of prostatitis you have.
Correct diagnosis is crucial because each type of prostatitis is treated differently, and it's important to make sure your symptoms are not caused by urethritis (inflammation of the urethra) or some other condition that may lead to permanent bladder or kidney damage.
Treatments generally include:
- anti-inflammatory drugs along with warm sitz baths (sitting in 2-3 inches of warm water);
- antibiotics for prostatitis due to both acute and chronic infectious infection. (These medicines are not effective treatments for noninfectious/nonbacterial prostatitis);
- pain drugs;
- surgery - the removal of the infected portions of the prostate for severe cases of chronic prostatitis or for men whose swollen prostate is obstructing urine.
PLEASE NOTE: With infectious prostatitis, the symptoms may disappear before the infection has completely cleared.
Although having prostatitis does not increase your risk of developing prostate cancer or any other prostate or kidney disease, you should continue to have regular examinations to detect prostate cancer.
Prostate Infection: The Bladder Infection Link
An acute bacterial prostatitis can cause severe symptoms of bladder infection.
Symptoms of bladder infection are similar to those of prostate infection or inflammation (prostatitis).
Also long-lasting, chronic prostatitis (CP) - the most common form of the disease, usually caused by detriemental bacteria - can be associated with repeated bladder infections (UTIs).
The male urethra is longer than the female's, not allowing bacteria quick access to the bladder and this, together with the antibacterial actions of some secretions of the prostate gland, probably accounts for why men are less likely than women to develop urinary tract infection (1:30 male:female ratio). Although less common in men, when it does occur, the bladder infection can become a serious problem.
Bladder Infection: Development of Symptoms
Urinary tract infection (UTI) symptoms tend to be cumulative as the infection becomes
Signs and symptoms of bladder infection - less commmon in men than in women - are similar in both sexes. However, the further into the urinary tract the infection progresses, the greater the number of symptoms.
Although not everyone with a urinary tract infection has symptoms, most people get at least some, such as:
- a frequent urge to urinate - having to go a lot, feeling that you have to urinate immediately during the day and/or night (sometimes incontinence may occur), and
- a sharp pain or painful, burning sensation with itching in the area of the bladder or urethra during urination (dysuria).
Symptoms of bladder infection can develop
- quite rapidly - over a matter of hours, or
- more slowly - nagging for several weeks.
Mild cases of acute urinary tract infeciton may disappear spontaneously without any treatment.
Urinary Bladder Infection: Common Causes
In most cases, about 80 percent in adults, urinary tract infection is caused by a variety of pathogens (infectious bacteria) normally present in the intestines, especially in the rectum (colon).
Nearly all infections of the lower urinary tract and bladder are caused by a few strains of E. coli bacteria, called uropathogenic Escherichia coli (UPEC).
A variety of other Enterobacteriaceae and Gram-positive pathogens, includes:
- Staphylococcus aureus (shortly "staph"),
- Staphylococcus saprophyticus (5 to 15 percent cases of urinary tract infections),
- Chlamydia trachomatis (one of the most common cuases of bladder infection, especially urethritis),
- Mycoplasma hominis,
- Klebsiella pneumoniae,
- Enterococcus faecalis,
- Proteus mirabilis,
- Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
Other possible causes of urinary tract infections include:
- yeast infection (especially if taking antibiotics for repeated infections),
- allergies (mainly from foods),
- stress and anxiety,
- heavy metal toxicity, and
- poor kidney function.
Sexually Transmitted Chlamydia Infection
Chlamydia is a common sexually transmitted disease caused by a bacterium called Chlamydia trachomatis. In men, the chlamydia organism infects cells of the lining of:
In men, chlamydia most often causes urethritis, an inflammation of the urethra in the penis, a frequent condition in men.
- urethra (tube that carries urine from the bladder),
- rectum, and
Persons with chlamydia infections often have no symptoms. Consequently, they may transmit the infection to other people without knowing it. However, when the symptoms do occur, their type and severity will depend on the site of the infection and the person's response to it.
Urethritis is more frequent in men than in women. It often sets the stage for the development of cystitis (bladder infection).
In men, inflammation of the urethra may cause burning in the penis, especially during urination.
Urethritis also may be caused by microorganisms that are transmitted through sexual contact, including gonorrhea and chlamydia.
Symptoms of urethritis can include:
- irritation in the urethra,
- burning pain in the penis during urination,
- discharge from the penis.
To diagnose chlamydia, a special test must be done by a health professional.
Chlamydia infection is easily treated with an antibiotic medication. However, if it is not detected and treated, chlamydia infection can lead to complications. In men, it can spread to the epididymis, where it will cause pain and swelling in the scrotum - the pouch located behind the penis containing the testes.
This serious condition requires prompt medical attention.
E. Coli Bacterial Infection
Various harmless strains of uropathogenic E. coli (UPEC) are normally present in the body - but they do NOT belong in the urinary tract.
The bacteria, however, have multiple little hairs called cilia that function like little feet that allow them to climb from the skin around the vagina, up the urinary tube, into the bladder.
If UPEC (E. coli) get into the bladder or the urethra, the body has ways of fighting them off - including the obvious methods of simply flushing them out with the urine. But these bacteria have evolved ways of anchoring themselves to the cells of the urinary tract.
The invading UPEC take advantage of receptors naturally found on the cells of the mucosal lining of the urinary tract. Receptors are like molecular "docking bays" for substances which the cells need for their normal growth and development.
Like pirates in an old movie, UPEC use "grappling hooks", called type I pili, to first hook on to these receptors, and then to invade the cell. (These pathogenic "grappling hooks" are composed of long, fibrous chains of a molecular "glue" called adhesin).
Once inside the cell, UPEC (E. coli) can live and reproduce in safety, shielded from many of the body's defensive immune responses. In fact, they are so sophisticated that when the body detects that cells have been infected and activates the cell suicide program to destroy the bacteria, UPEC can actually flee the dying host cell before it is flushed out, and look for new cells to invade!
Antibiotic Treatments: E. Coli Survival Rate
Uropathogenic Escherichia Coli (E. coli) are able to survive antibiotic treatment for bladder infections by reverting to an inactive state.
Even after a month of antibiotic exposure, about 10 million of the original 1 billion bacteria may remain in the urinary tract.
Within several days of antibiotic treatment, the number of bacteria reproducing drop to zero. However, antibiotics do not successfully kill all the bacteria participating in the infection and may, in fact, encourage many of the detrimental bacteria to persist in a resting state due their ability to attach to cells lining the urinary tract.
Here is the examples:
- After treatment with ciprofloxacin about 3 percent of the bacteria may be still present in a dormant state.
- After treatment with trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole about 7 percent may linger the urinary tract.
Even after a month of antibiotic exposure, about 10 million of the original 1 billion bacteria may remain in the urinary tract.
There is enough evidence to suggest, the current standard drug treatments for bladder infections are not adequate and this phenomenon may account for many of the repeat urinary tract infections.
Usually, the latest infection stems from a strain or type of bacteria that is different from the infection before it, indicating a separate infection. Even when several urinary tract infections in a row are due to E. coli, slight differences in the bacteria indicate distinct infections.
Because of the chance of kidney infection (pyelonephritis), both chronic and recurrent accute urinary tract infections should be treated thoroughly .
Antibiotic Treatments: The Drawbacks
Although routinely used to clear up the infection, the antibiotic treatments have many drawbacks carrying with them multiple health risks.
- Antibiotics successfully kill both the unwanted micro-organisms and wanted micro-organisms.
- Long-term or often repeated antibiotic use leads to major disturbance in normal body microflora, and sometimes to major disruption in health; as the friendly bacteria are killed off along with the bad bacteria, the antibiotic insensitive yeast can then grow out of control - you may end up with nasty yeast infection.
- All antibiotic therapies carry with them the risks of developing antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
- Antibiotics, such as Bactrim, may cause gastrointestinal problems, especially an upset stomach and other allergic reactions, such as skin rash.
- Antibiotic treatments carry with them the risk of developing adverse effects on the liver and kidneys.
Therefore, due to these hazards, especially of prolonged antibiotic therapy, the need for antibiotics should be reduced to the absolute minimum necessary.
Urinary Safeguards Against Pathogenic Bacteria
Because the urinary system is structured in a way that helps ward off infection, infection does not always occur when bacteria are introduced into the bladder. There is a number of defense systems that protect the urinary tract.
These natural safegards against infection-causing bacteria include:
- The flow of urine which functions as an antiseptic, helping to wash potentially harmful bacteria out of the body during normal urination. Urine contains large quantities of urea - the colorless, crystalline end product manufactured within the liver - which is excreted from the body via urinary tract. Known for its antiseptic and bactericidal properties, urea helps to inhibit the growth of many types of detrimental bacteria including Eschericia coli (E. coli) and Staphylococcus. It also helps to kill the detrimental bacteria that cause bacterial forms of prostatitis.
- The ureters carrying urine from the kidneys to the bladder and the bladder which are structurally designed to prevent urine from backing up toward the kidneys.
- The male urethra which is longer than the female's, not allowing bacteria quick access to the bladder and this, together with the antibacterial actions of some secretions of the prostate gland, probably accounts for why men are less likely than women to develop urinary tract infection. In addition, a man's urethral opening is farther from sources of bacteria from the anus.
- The bladder lining (the cells that line the bladder) which - when bacteria infect the bladder - literally, sacrifice themselves and self-destruct (a process called apoptosis). In so doing, they fall away from the lining, carrying the bacteria with them. This process, sugested by some interesting research, eliminates about 90% of the E. coli.
- The immune defenses which continuously fight bacteria and other harmful micro-invaders. In addition, the immune system defenses and antibacterial substances in the mucous lining of the bladder eliminate many organisms.
- The identified by some researchers natural antibiotic called human beta-defensin-1 (HBD-1) which fights E. coli within the urinary tract.
Uribiotic Formula: Herbal Antibiotic
"As a last resort I tried URIBIOTIC, and within a few days the effects were amazing: clear, golden urine and a nice, relaxed bladder; relief at last. For this, I am most grateful and I thank you! ~ David P., Devon, UK
It has been known for years to alternative practitioners - nutritionists, herbalists, naturopathic doctors and nutritionally-oriented physicians that the natural, non-pharmacological approach to prostate and urinary infection compared to standard medical treatments (read: antibiotics) is clearly a superior, and most importantly, safer and without side effects option.
Actually, it is on open secret that antibacterial and anti-inflammatory herbs, micro- and phytonutrients can help to remedy and overcome acute and repeated, chronic prostate and bladder infection by:
- disinfecting the urinary tract (an antimicrobial action),
- inhibiting and preventing inflammation,
- enhancing the growth of some forms of beneficial bacteria within the body such as Bifidobacteria bifidus and Lactobacillus acidophilus,
- destroying some forms of detrimental fungi such as Candida albicans and Candida krusei.
By preventing bacterial cell division and breaking down the walls and cytoplasm of bacteria (in a similar fashion to some types of pharmaceutical antibiotics), Uribiotic Formula helps to inhibit the growth (or kill) many types of detrimental pathogenic bacteria including:
- Actinomyces naeslundii
- Bacillus anthracis (on the basis of its known ability to kill other species of Bacillus)
- Bacillus alvert
- Bacillus cereus
- Bacillus subtilis
- Brucella abortus
- Campylobacter jejuni
- Chlamydia pneumoniae
- Chlamydia trachomatis
- Clostridium species (botulinum, tetani)
- Cornybacterium diphtheriae
- Enterobacter aerogenes, gram-negative aerobe, also known as Klebsiella mobilis or Klebsiella aerogenes (the latter at one time was used for several strains now known to belong to Klebsiella pneumoniae; now it is used primarily by researchers who believe that Enterobacter aerogenes should be transferred to Klebsiella)
- Enterococcus faecalis (gram-positive aerobe, former Group D streptococcus)
- Eschericia coli (E. coli, gram-negative aerobe)
- Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori)
- Haemophilus influenzae
- Klebsiella pneumoniae (gram-negative aerobe)
- Legionella pneumoniae
- Listeria monocytogenes
- Moraxella catarrhalis
- Mycobacterium smegmatis
- Mycobacterium tuberculosis
- Neisseria gonorrhoeae
- Neisseria memingitidis
- Pasteurella septica
- Pneumocystis carinii
- Propionibacterium acnes
- Proteus mirabilis (gram-negative aerobe)
- Proteus vulgaris (gram-negative aerobe)
- Pseudomonas aeruginosa (gram-negative aerobe)*
- Pseudomonas cepacia
- Salmonella enteridis
- Salmonella enteritidis
- Salmonella choleraesuis
- Salmonella paratyphi A
- Salmonella typhimurium
- Serratia marcescens (gram-negative aerobe)
- Shigella dysenteriae
- Shigella flexneri
- Shigella sonnei
- Staphylococcus aureus (gram-positive aerobe, responsible for "Golden Staph")**
- Staphylococcus saprophyticus (a gram-positive, coagulase-negative bacterium, recognized as a cause of urinary tract infections since the early 1970s)
- Streptococcus faecalis (now classified as Enterococcus faecalis)
- Streptococcus mutans (alpha-hemolytic Streptococcus), also known as Group A Streptococcus (GAS)
- Streptococcus pneumoniae (alpha-hemolytic Streptococcus), also known as Group A Streptococcus (GAS)
- Streptococcus pyogenes (beta-hemolytic Streptococcus), also known as Group B Streptococcus (GBS)
- Streptococcus sanguis (alpha-hemolytic Streptococcus), also known as Group A Streptococcus (GAS)
- Streptococcus viridans (alpha-hemolytic Streptococcus), also known as Group A Streptococcus (GAS)
- Streptomyces species
- Treponema pallidum
- Ureaplasma urealyticum - a species of detrimental ureaplasma bacteria, a genus of bacteria belonging to the family Mycoplasmataceae. Mycoplasma, also known as Asterococcus, is a genus of aerobic to facultatively anaerobic, gram-negative detrimental bacteria. Several species are pathogenic in humans, including Mycoplasma fermentans, Mycoplasma genitalum and Mycoplasma pneumoniae.
U. urealyticum - the phylogenetic cluster of M. pneumoniae, is part of the normal genital flora of both men and women. It is found in about 70 percent of sexually active humans. It is believed to be sexually transmitted and transmitted from mother to infant.
Ureaplasma urealyticum infection may cause urinary tract infections (UTIs), urinary tract/kidney stones (struvite stones), non-specific urethritis (NSU), nongonorrheal urethritis and prostatitis in men. It has also been noted as one of the infectious causes of sterile pyuria (pus in urine).
Penicillins are ineffective as U. urealyticum does not have a cell wall, which is the drug's main target.
- Vancomycin-Resistant Enterococcus (VRE)
* PLEASE NOTE: Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a common bacterium found in soil, water, skin flora and most man-made environments. An opportunistic pathogen of immunocompromised individuals vulnerable to infections, it typically infects the pulmonary tract, urinary tract, burns, wounds, and also causes other blood infections.
P. aeruginosa is the third leading cause of hospital-acquired urinary tract infections, accounting for approximately 12 percent of all infections of this type. They are usually related to urinary tract catheterization, instrumentation or surgery.
It is a common cause of post-operative infection in radial keratotomy (RK) eye surgery patients and of "hot-tub rash" (dermatitis), caused by lack of proper periodic attention to water quality.
P. aeruginosa appears to be among the most adherent of common urinary pathogens to the bladder uroepithelium. An infection can occur via an ascending or descending route.
P. aeruginosa can also invade the bloodstream from the urinary tract. This route is the source of approximately 40 percent of P. aeruginosa infections.
P. aeruginosa can cause chronic opportunistic infections. These kinds of infections are a serious problem for medical care. Many patients, immunocompromised and the elderly in particular, often cannot be treated effectively with traditional antibiotic therapy.
As a highly relevant opportunistic pathogen, P. aeruginosa has low antibiotic susceptibility. It is naturally resistant to a large range of antibiotics and may demonstrate additional resistance after unsuccessful treatment.
Therefore, choosing an antibiotic should be guided according to laboratory sensitivities, rather than empirically. However, if antibiotics are started empirically - with some exceptions, given by injection only - then cultures should be obtained and, after having the culture results available, the choice of an antibiotic used should be carefully reviewed.
** PLEASE NOTE: In case of Staphylococcus aureus infections, Uribiotic Formula can be a part of a combined antibiotic therapy as it may enhance the effectiveness of pharmaceutical antibiotics for the UTI treatment.
Uribiotic Formula: An Immune Booster
An immune-boosting Uribiotic Formula helps to increase the natural safeguards - bodily defense systems that protect the urinary tract and prostate gland against pathogenic, infection-causing bacteria, such as:
- the flow of urine which functions as an antiseptic, helping to wash potentially harmful bacteria out of the body during normal urination. (Urine is normally sterile, that is, free of bacteria, viruses, and fungi!)
- the ureters (muscular ducts that propel urine from the kidneys to the urinary bladder) and the bladder
- the immune defenses and antibacterial substances in the mucous lining of the bladder
- the bladder lining cells that, literally, sacrifice themselves and self-destruct to fight off detrimental bacteria (a process called apoptosis). In so doing, they fall away from the lining, carrying the bacteria with them. This process, suggested by some interesting research, eliminates about 90% of the E. coli
- the so-called human beta-defensin-1 (HBD-1) which fights E. coli within the female urinary and reproductive tracts -.a possible natural antibiotic identified by some researchers
- the antibacterial actions of some secretions of the prostate gland probably for why men are less likely than women to develop urinary tract infection.
Uribiotic Formula: Health Benefits
It is so embarrassing to consult your doctor for the same reason (another infection!) and need to take another round of different antibiotics (the trial and error method of problem "solving").
The truth is, however, that urinary tract infections CAN be successfully prevented, remedied and overcome naturally - without multiple rounds of prescription medications (antibiotics).
Health benefits of our proprietary Uribiotic Formula - a synergistic blend of 60 nutrients, phytonutrients (plant nutrients) and herbs thoroughly researched and put to the test - include:

Formulated with care by a master formulator and manufactured according to the highest standards, this unique synergistic combination can help you deal with a bladder and/or even a kidney infection:
- effectively, and
- with no side effects.
Thousands of UTI sufferers around the world have proven the efficacy of this approach. And what is most important, there has not been a single reported harm done by taking the Uribiotic Formula.
But don't take our word for it.
So, don't knock it until you try it out yourself and experience the results.

If necessary, Uribiotic Formula can also be a part of a combined antibiotic therapy as Uribiotic Formula may even enhance the effectiveness of standard pharmaceutical antibiotics for the treatment of prostate infection, especially in case of Staphylococcus aureus infection.
First Signs of Relief Within 24-48 Hours
Uribiotic Formula can cause the almost instant disappearance of
- painful burning or stinging sensation when urinating (dysuria) or ejaculating;
- the need for frequent urination (polyuria and/or nocturia);
- the inability to empty the bladder completely even though you have the urge (urinary retention).
Uribiotic Formula can help you eliminate:
- the harmful bacteria from the inside of the urinary tract and prostate gland without disrupting the normal body functions.
Uribiotic Formula can help you prevent and remedy:
- both acute and repeated (chronic) prostate infections, and
- the need and/or dependence on antibiotics.
The results, however, may vary from person to person depending on the type of diagnosis (urine tests and/or symptoms), the type of bacteria, degree of severity of prostate infection (ranging from minor to serious), type of prostate infection (bacterial, non-bacterial), history of antibiotic intake (as this can be a cause of repeated prostatitis), structural abnormalities, age, sex and other existing health conditions such as diabetes mellitus and/or any immuno-compromised state. Besides, many men with symptoms of prostate infection actually have irritation of the urethra, candidiasis, or sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). Some of these problems may also accompany or lead to prostate infections.

Dear Uribiotic Formula Team,
I just finished taking one bottle of Uribiotic to help with my chronic prostatitis and overactive bladder problems.
I can safely say that this is the first medicine and supplement in the last 5 years which gave me maximum relief in my lingering pain as well as frequent and hesitant urination.
No antibiotics or herbal supplements gave me a better relief than Uribiotic Formula. And quicker, just within three days of taking it.
I have one more bottle with me, but I plan to keep on taking them for a long time to get symptom free totally.
Heartfelt thanks to you for this outstanding product - Uribiotic Formula.
New Delhi, India
April 22nd, 2017
I had been on Levaquin* and Cipro[floxacin] on and off for three years. But E. coli and other bacteria in the prostate were resistant these drugs, so I went years in abdominal pain just learning how to cope.
I'd also purchased bee pollen or grape seed pills to cope...
After trying almost everything, I came across URIBIOTIC and after two months my symptoms were completely gone!
I recommend this product 100%!!!
Thank u thank u!!!!!!

*Levaquin (levofloxacin) is a fluoroquinolone antibiotic that is sometimes used to treat bacterial infections of the prostate. As it can cause serious or disabling, irreversible side effects, Levaquin should be used only for infections that cannot be treated with safer antibiotics.

Without this product I would be in pure misery. At one point my prostate was so bad that I had suicidal thoughts.
But URIBIOTIC pulled me out of misery. Most likely I will be ordering it off and on for the rest of my life.
God bless you...

HOLY COW BATMAN!!!! Last night, I was at the point where I stood and kept squeezing with both hands above the pubic bone on my bladder to get some drops to relieve the terrible pressure of needing to pee.
Desperate, I took some URIBIOTIC: 8 capsules instead of 4.
Second time I got out of bed, there was a full slight stream.
By the third time, about 2 o'clock - a full hearty stream.
I thought, I was dreaming and couldn't believe the stream. I got so excited that I peed all over myself lavishing in normal pleasing golden shower… Just kidding.
But, seriously, I'm very impressed.
Thank you, thank you!

Hello Mr. Andrew Mierzejewski,
I am writing to thank you for all you have done for me. I had an E. coli infection ruining my life for 6 years. I had seen numerous doctors and I've was tested every way that the medical profession could think of.
It started on my 50th birthday when my health deteriorated rapidly within 2 hours. I was feeling fine, sitting in Northern Ontario contemplating my first 5 decades of life. I felt tired after eating lunch and thought I should take a nap. Within two hours I had a fever of 104, vomiting, and shaking uncontrollably.
My wife called for an ambulance and I was rushed to the hospital in Bracebridge. Once there, I was diagnosed with a severe urinary tract infection and they prescribed Cipro and sent me on way. The strain of E.coli in me was resistant to that antibiotic and consequently I had another violent attack and my second ride in an ambulance. The hospital experience was too extreme to go into here.
Eventually, I as put on Septra and sent home. It took a few weeks and all seemed well. Another drug was eventually prescribed called Suprax. This was meant to be a safer alternative. I adjusted to what I considered my "new normal". Within the year, while away from home again, the symptoms came back but, I knew how to control them better.
I went to a urologist who confirmed the E.coli was back. We started the Suprax again. He didn't feel that the two infections were related even though the E. coli strain was the same. After all the scopes and tests he wanted me to endure, he couldn't find the source. He sent me to an Infectious Disease specialist. This medical Triage team sent me for a battery of more tests and used a lot of my time. I went through an amazing amount of antibiotics. I was on Suprax for 3 years.
The final round of drugs was Ertapenem. The Doctor referred to it as "the bazooka of all antibiotics". Other doctors referred to it as "Javex, Draino and Bleach". I'm thinking this will solve it. It was administered for 28 days through an IV drip once a day. 17 days later, all my symptoms were back and raging in a full on attack. I started my stash of Suprax immediately and got the infection under control. The Infection Specialist was stumped!
While on Suprax there weren't any issues with the infection but, I was taking antibiotics daily with no end in sight. If I stopped and did nothing, the infection would eventually kill me.
The team of Doctors recommended that I start a path of surgeries to remove infected parts and tissue to see if they could cut out where the infection was nested. That seemed rather extreme to me. You referred to it as "barbaric". It would only lead to a reduced state of living and a dependency on the medical industry.
Looking for another way through this, my wife found your site and I immediately began reading. I started immediately with Uribiotic. I called you and you advised me. You guided me through the process. I used a larger prescribed amount of supplements as directed by you. You also explained the diet I needed and what other supplements to use.
I stayed the course and did not waiver for 3 months. I called you many times to understand what was happening with me and as time went by, you adjusted the prescription as needed. It was the first 3 months in years that I didn't take a pharmaceutical antibiotic.
After 3 months, I couldn't believe that it was over the infection was gone and not returning. I waited a few months before writing this note of endorsement. I am amazed and thankful. I have changed my eating habits and added certain supplements to my way of life. I'm not as strict about the diet anymore but I am very strict about the amount of sugar that I will allow myself. My eating habits are much better now. I think I will be amazed for years to come. I never thought I would get through this.
When the specialists suggested the surgery route I said no. I was going to use your method. They were very skeptical. I told the team of doctors about my recovery and they are astonished. One doctor, who has been practicing his specialty with infections for 27 years, said I taught him something new!
I thank you. You are a treasure.
I have suffered for many years from prostatitis which caused me unpleasant lower back pain. I had tried many different formulas and drugs to alleviate the pain without success.
That was until I discovered your Uribiotic! Within 4 days of taking it, I was without pain and could sleep well for the first time in ages. What a relief!!!
I will continue to use Uribiotic in the future. Finally, I found something that works for me.
Dear Full of Health:
I've had lots of good luck with the Uribiotic Formula.
Thank you! It's been a godsend.
Dear Mr. Mierzejewski:
Over the past two years, I took several different antibiotics, whose effects were only temporary, and a great number of natural products, none of which did more than reduce my prostate infection symptoms.
Since beginning taking your Uribiotic Formula, however, I have now better urinary and lower GI function than I have had in many years.
All the signs of prostatitis, discomfort sitting, persistent discomfort in the groin, and the constant feeling of needing to urinate are gone.
I hope that your product will obtain the international recognition it deserves. There are hundreds of thousands of prostate infection sufferers whose normal lives could be reclaimed by using it.
Merry Christmas to you and yours,
I got a severe bladder infection and also discovered I had an enlarged prostate. I was in bad pain when I often had to go to restroom. One night I was going every 30 minutes.
They put me on sulfa antibiotics and also wanted me to take Flowmax which I told them I would not take. I don't like taking antibiotics if I can help it.
They also did a CAT scan. I took the antibiotics for a few days but they did not help that much.
Until I got my order of Uribiotic in. I started taking it and, after a few days, noticed feeling a little better each day.
I started going to the bathroom about twice a night only. Then just once a night and now I never wake to go to the bathroom. My measured urine outflow in the morning became normal and with no pain.
I was also taking Prosta-F Extract for my enlarged prostate for about six weeks. I went to a specialist and he checked me and said that my prostate was normal. He said I don't need to come back.
Now everything is back to normal. I still take both Uribiotic and Prosta-F Extract.
I am very thankful for your help and advice, Andrew.
Therapeutic and Preventive Intake: Directions
Uribiotic Formula is a different route to contribute not only to your freedom from urinary tract/prostate infections, but also to your optimum urinary/prostate health. But when, after reading about this self-help method, you go back to your doctor for an opinion, he or she may say sarcastically, "A herbal antibiotic?! Whom are you going to trust? Some guy on the Internet!? I am your doctor. And as a medical professional, I am responsible for your health."
Not being sure of who's actually giving you the correct information, you may face a real dilemma, a serious problem of trust. However, if - despite following your doctor's orders - you are not doing well, then, you should look at your situation honestly and ask yourself, "Am I willing to try a different route to get better?"
It's a well-known fact that no one is immune to well-meaning but sometimes misguided advice from their doctors. Yes, they are professionals with medical degrees - but not with herbalist degrees. Unfortunately, as herbology (along with nutrition) has been excised from the medical school curriculum, most physicians have been, and still are, misinformed or even ill-informed about herbs. For a reason, of course.
Having said all that, with possible variations from person to person - depending on the diagnosis, degree of prostate infection, age of the sufferer, and other existing or pre-existing health conditions - the suggested intake of Uribiotic Formula can be described as follows:
I. Acute Prostate Infection/s:
In case of first signs of discomfort (slight burning sensation when urinating, frequent urination and/or inability to empty bladder completely) you need to take:
Our ironclad recommendation: A 6-day therapeutic intake (1 bottle) and, then, an additional 6-day prophylactic intake (1 more bottle) to improve and/or restore the urinary tract’s normal pH, boost the natural safeguards - bodily defense systems that protect the prostate gland against pathogenic, infection-causing bacteria, therefore, to prevent recurring infections.
4 capsules 3 times daily; therefore, for full benefits, 2 bottles of Uribiotic Formula will be needed.
In case persistent signs of prostatitis (painful burning sensation when urinating, frequent urination at night and/or inability to empty bladder completely), you need to take:
Our ironclad recommendation: A 12-day therapeutic intake (2 bottles) and, then, an additional 6-day prophylactic intake (1 more bottle) to improve and/or restore the urinary tract’s normal pH, boost the natural safeguards - bodily defense systems that protect the prostate gland against pathogenic, infection-causing bacteria, therefore, to prevent recurring infections.
4 capsules 3 times daily; therefore, for full benefits, 3 bottles of Uribiotic Formula will be needed.
PLEASE NOTE: When acute nephritis (kidney infection) is present - accompanied by high fever along with sudden retention of urine (a painful urge to pass urine but the inability to do so) - have your condition assessed immediately by your physician.
II. Chronic/Repeated Prostate Infection/s:
In case of recurrent, repeated prostate infection/s (all the above symptoms along with the need and dependence on, or a history of frequent antibiotic use) you need to take:
Our ironclad recommendation: An 18-day therapeutic intake (3 bottles) and, then, an additional 6-day prophylactic intake (1 more bottle) to improve and/or restore the urinary tract’s normal pH, boo the natural safeguards - bodily defense systems that protect the prostate gland against pathogenic, infection-causing bacteria, therefore, to prevent recurring infections.
4 capsules 3 times daily; therefore, for full benefits, 4 bottles of Uribiotic Formula will be needed.
PLEASE NOTE: When acute nephritis (kidney infection) is present - accompanied by high fever along with sudden retention of urine (a painful urge to pass urine but the inability to do so) - have your condition assessed immediately by your physician.
When to Take Uribiotic: Directions
Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH)
Take the capsules throughout the day (in the morning - beginning after breakfast, then, at noon, and in the afternoon) away from food, that is either 15 minutes before a meal or about one hour following a meal, each time with ˝ glass of purified room-temperature water, preferably alkaline. Both the early eaters and late eaters should have their morning dose of Uribiotic one hour after the first meal of the day (more commonly known as breakfast).
Also, do your best and try to sip lots of water throughout the day, always purified, room-temperature, preferably alkaline, which has a higher pH level than "regular" water. Alkaline water helps neutralize acid in your bloodstream, boost your metabolism and increase the absorption of nutrients.
Not drinking enough water - an essential, vital nutrient - can increase the risk of urinary tract infections. Dark-yellow urine and/or infrequent urination are some of the symptoms of dehydration - a water imbalance disrupting levels of salts and sugars in the blood, which can interfere with the fundamental bodily functions.
Therefore, adults should consume around six to eight (6-8) cups of fluids or beverages each day. Unfortunately, many people still believe that drinking water causes... fluid retention. In fact, the opposite is true. The body retains water only if there is too little water is the cells. The average adult bladder can hold up to two cups, or 500 mL, of urine for two to five hours.
A Caution: Pharmaceutical Drugs:
Uribiotic Formula should be consumed with caution by patients on a high dose of warfarin (blood thinner) due to the presence, although in an insignificant amount, of garlic which may potentiate the anticoagulant effects of warfarin. (Reference: Fugh-Berman, A.: Herb-drug interactions. Lancet. 355(9198):134-138, 2000).
Do Not Stop!
Although symptoms-free, please DO NOT stop taking Uribiotic Formula and continue to use it until all bottles are empty.
If you are prone to repeated/chronic prostate and/or urinary tract infections keep an extra bottle of Uribiotic Formula on hand, and use it immediately at the first signs of infection for the minimum of 3 consecutive days, taking 4 capsules 3 times daily.
In time, you will notice that the frequency of your orostate and/or urinary tract infections begins to seize, making the further use of Uribiotic Formula - with some possible exceptions - unnecessary and/or occasional only.
Remember: The Results May Vary
Once again, please note that the results may vary from person to person depending on the type of diagnosis (urine tests and/or symptoms), the type of bacteria, degree of severity of prostate infection (ranging from minor to serious), type of prostate infection (bacterial, non-bacterial), history of antibiotic intake (as this can be a cause of repeated prostatitis), structural abnormalities, age, sex and other existing health conditions such as diabetes mellitus and/or any immuno-compromised state. Besides, many men with symptoms of prostate infection actually have irritation of the urethra, candidiasis, or sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). Some of these problems may also accompany or lead to prostate infections.
If Your Infection Persists
In order to enhance the therapeutic, protective and preventive (prophylactic) effects of Uribiotic Formula, especially in case of stubborn, severe and complex urinary tract infections, you may consider taking with it other supporting, bacteria-specific supplements, such as:
Besides bladder infections men quite often suffer from benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), a non-cancerous swelling of the prostate gland. Then, we recommend taking Uribiotic Formula along with another dietary supplement targeted for prostate health: European DP Extract.
