The blueberries in these recipes aren’t guaranteed to keep your bladder healthy, but all those antioxidants and other nutrients found in blueberries can’t hurt. If you want maximum enjoyment (and live in the right location), try picking blueberries fresh from the field. You can try them in Chilled Blueberry Soup. Cranberries aren’t the only food that may help prevent urinary tract infections and improve bladder health. Try eating more blueberries!

Here Are 10 Ways To Shun Urinary Tract Infection Using Blackberries 1. Eat Them Fresh Eating some fresh blueberries is probably the easiest way to use this natural remedy for clearing up 2. Frozen Blueberries If you do not have a shop nearby that. Blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries all contain high amounts of vitamin C which may help stave off bacterial growth in the bladder. Also, berries, like most fruits, are made up of mostly water, so plentiful consumption helps ensure adequate fluid intake to help flush out the kidneys and bladder at regular intervals.

Bladder-Irritating Foods Find a list of foods that irritate the bladder (known culprits such as caffeinated drinks and little-known problems such as fava beans). It is suggested that the irritating foods be eliminated or replaced by alternatives. The sugar, caffeine, or acidity in these foods and drinks can irritate the bladder, causing an accidental leakage to occur. If you think one of these foods may be contributing to your bladder leaks, try eliminating it from your diet for a couple of weeks and see what happens. After a while, slowly add it back in and see if the problem reemerges.

There are many health benefits to eating berries, from the ever-so-popular strawberry, raspberry and blueberry to the somewhat less known blackberry. But all of these berries are loaded with a compound known as flavanol, which has been shown to help fight bacterial infection — like the kind of bacterial infection that can cause an irritating urinary tract. Blueberries are sometimes branded a “superfood,” and for good reason; they are packed full of antioxidants that offer a wealth of health benefits. Whirl blueberries alone or with other fruits into a smoothie or fruit freeze drink. Top cereal or yogurt with fresh or dried blueberries.

Add blueberries to a green salad. Blueberries have many health benefits; they help with anti-aging, heart health, and brain function, among others. Find out more reasons blueberries are so good for you, according to a nutritionist.

  • Thank you for this video!��
    Two hospitalizations in December and then I thought I had two more bladder infections.So much pain past two days.I got two Toridol shots one each day.Found an IC food list app and its helpful.��

  • Thank you so much for this testimony. Speaking honestly & clearly about this issue there is so much round about bullshit for this condition & it’s so refreshing to hear someone speak about the underlying problem of this, strep. I’m a man who had severe case of strep when I was a child and I’ve been struggling with the symptoms of this issue for years and never understood it, and in my stubbornness just tried to ignore it but this is an really embarrassing issue for me. I trust a mother’s intuition, so I really believe you when you say have done your proper research for protecting your children. Nutrition is an often very misunderstood topic. I am beginning to understand all the mistakes I’ve made with my diet & I’m starting my healing process with celery juice and just wanted to thank you for sharing your experience. Hopefully I can one day help another as you’ve done for us. MM is an amazing guy.

  • There are more studies done on this subject and results are never the same. Some show milk blocks antioxidant absorbtion, some say no effect, some say it improves absorbtion.

    When there are so many different results on the same subject, it’s a clear sign that there are other variables at work. Variables that aren’t tracked, which leads to conflicting results.

    What else is there in dairy that could have this effect?

    And another thing, the effect of milk on antioxidants seems to depend on the kind of antioxidant. In some, milk even improves the absorption and function of certain antioxidants.

  • Hello Dr.Greger love this channel, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE I BEG YOU could you do an video about Keratosis Pilaris and diet? Or anyway too improve its aperance internally or externally. PLEASE from someone that has bad KP and because of it has low self-esteem.


  • There is a gentleman Yosef, he has a farm in Peyton Colorado U.S. Ahavah Farm, he Farms completely chemical-free, which means he cannot be classified as an organic farm. But he supplies the best vegetables I’ve ever tasted in my life, and on the Brix scale he’s getting higher numbers than what you find in the store. I’m wondering if this would translate into healthier food. It would be awesome to see him scale up to feed tens of thousands which he is talked about. But his customer base and funding is not there at this point in time. But this would be an interesting thing to see a study done on. And since organic does use chemicals I’m pretty sure there hasn’t been a study done on chemically free food compared to intentionally sprayed food.?

  • The graph at 3:11… Aren’t there only 2 data points with error bars that allow the trend observed to be reversed according to experimental uncertainty?

  • Thanks for the video with all the good information. The season for picking blueberries is now, so I will pick a blueberries picker today and start picking blueberries!

  • Okay, so I used to work in a post-op urology unit. I never looked at wine the same way after calling my TURP patient’s urine as “Rose” and “Cabernet”… ��

  • I have Crohns Disease, Endometreosis and Interstitial Cystitis. IC is the worst. I’ve been Vegan for 5 years and it hasn’t gotten any better. I’m pregnant now and it’s gotten so much worse. The constant pain, discomfort and pressure. Feels like the worst UTI constantly.

  • Omg! I’m so glad I found this. I’m currently dealing with IC I also had Group B strep with my daughter too and ever since I have suffered with IC and my daughter has the same symptoms. I’m currently reading the MM liver rescue book to try and stop this bloody IC. Thanks for this video

  • Amebic liver abscesses characteristically adhere to the underside of the diaphragm and then burst into the overlying lung whereupon the patient coughs up the contents of the abscess.This isnt always what happens but it is common. A patient of mine who did this said “Its funny, doc,my sputum tastes of liver “!

    Position of the American Dietetic Association: vegetarian diets.
    It is the position of the American Dietetic Association that appropriately planned vegetarian diets, including total vegetarian or vegan diets, are healthful, nutritionally adequate, and may provide health benefits in the prevention and treatment of certain diseases. Well-planned vegetarian diets are appropriate for individuals during all stages of the life cycle, including pregnancy, lactation, infancy, childhood, and adolescence, and for athletes. A vegetarian diet is defined as one that does not include meat (including fowl) or seafood, or products containing those foods. This article reviews the current data related to key nutrients for vegetarians including protein, n-3 fatty acids, iron, zinc, iodine, calcium, and vitamins D and B-12. A vegetarian diet can meet current recommendations for all of these nutrients. In some cases, supplements or fortified foods can provide useful amounts of important nutrients. An evidencebased review showed that vegetarian diets can be nutritionally adequate in pregnancy and result in positive maternal and infant health outcomes. The results of an evidence-based review showed that a vegetarian diet is associated with a lower risk of death from ischemic heart disease. Vegetarians also appear to have lower low-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels, lower blood pressure, and lower rates of hypertension and type 2 diabetes than nonvegetarians. Furthermore, vegetarians tend to have a lower body mass index and lower overall cancer rates. Features of a vegetarian diet that may reduce risk of chronic disease include lower intakes of saturated fat and cholesterol and higher intakes of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts, soy products, fiber, and phytochemicals. The variability of dietary practices among vegetarians makes individual assessment of dietary adequacy essential. In addition to assessing dietary adequacy, food and nutrition professionals can also play key roles in educating vegetarians about sources of specific nutrients, food purchase and preparation, and dietary modifications to meet their needs.”

  • Can anyone please tell me what I’m doing wrong?
    I’ve started a vegan diet 3 days ago
    Today was my 2nd of celery juicing
    Amd I have a flare up and I don’t know why
    Maybe the suger from the almond milk
    I’m in so much pain
    I can’t live like this anymore

  • I put dates oats a shit tone of berries banana flax seeds etc in my shake every day, im vegan over 2 years (mostly whole foods) and still I have high blood pressure

  • Thank you so much. It’s hard to talk with anyone about this kind of pain if they have never experienced it. All of this info is super helpful. I know where to start now

  • This information changes my life. Thankyou so much!!! You will never know the difference you made to someone who you will never meet

  • You scared me there for a minute. Thank goodness I eat (dairy free) Kite Hill Almond Milk Yogurt (plain) with my blueberries! Whole Foods sells a 32 oz. bag of organic frozen blueberries for $8.99. Thanks for the info!

  • Don’t really know how to take this video message, it showed bad research on berries back in the day and known it’s showing good research on berries, I guess 20 year’s from known the research will be bad again, it’ll be about something they missed or something they found, nowadays you gotta really do your own personal experimental research, at least your know the truth!

  • I was diagnosed with IC, but really the only symptom I’ve experienced for seven years is the frequent urge to urinate. I can’t ever sleep because I’m so anxious about the bladder. Can you have IC without the “pain” that’s frequently described?

  • Oh i hear you! I thought same thing to do as this pain is horrific. Can deal with a headache and birth but this IC is whole other level, yes stress with kids aggravates it. I had that strep too, IC worse after birth. I was all ok until i started contraception strip inserts: boom in hospital with UTI, which ive never had.. then all this other garbage is now happening to my bladder as a result of that UTI. Had the bladder stretch last year. Am suffering still.. God please heal us!!
    (I do take Quercetin and noticed a difference in 4 days. Only 250mg every 3 days: when i don’t take it i can feel symptoms returning)

  • Nope Parsely, Cilantro, Lemon juice and apple cider vinegar. For teas I agree and fruits yes same. Buy tart cherry juice and add it in if you can’t buy cherrys and easier to drink.

  • Omg. I’m going thru this now… urine perfect, except positive for group B strep. Thank you so much for making this video. I started to feel like I was going crazy.

  • Those blueberries in your picture are not natural. I have consumed real natural blueberries and I know what theyre like. These ones in the pic are acidic in taste. The purple juice is totally unatural. Some are also slightly green. The meat should white, juiceless, have specific blueberry taste and a couple cups of them should be like a mild pre-workout powder. They should also boost vision like Immediatly!!! Those purple weakling, acidic and almost tasteless “blueberries” are an attrocity of modern agriculture.
