We Are Seeing More Improvement with a New Idea

After the first round of meds to get rid of the ESBL bacteria that is causing my mother's urinary tract infection, we had another urine test done only to find out that the antibiotic didn't work. So another antibiotic was prescribed, and after finishing
that one, there was still no improvement. There will be another urine test, but I'm sure that she will still have the bacteria. So I really started thinking about this.
An ESBL is a bacteria that has become resistant to almost all antibiotics, but what if it isn't resistant to natural remedies? From past research, I know that olive leaf extract and oregano oil are both antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal remedies. I had
used olive leaf extract for my dog that had a chronic yeast infection in her ears that 3 vets couldn't cure. After over 9 years of fighting the infection, I tried opening a capsule of olive leaf extract on her food every day, and the symptoms of the yeast
infection stopped within 1 week. I also used a combination of olive leaf extract and oregano oil recently when I developed an abscess in my gum under a capped tooth. In less than a week, the pain stopped, and the abscess went away. So I decided to try both
for my mother.
I started adding the olive leaf extract to her pureed foods 3 times a day, and got her to take 2 oregano oil capsule once a day. Unfortunately, she chewed the oregano capsules and they taste awful. With a bit of arguing, she got them down. The day after I started
this, there was a difference. She stayed awake a little more, and even smiled for the first time in weeks. The second day, there was more improvement. Although she fed herself before the shingles and the UTI, she hadn't done this in almost 6 weeks. Today,
she picked up a glass of protein shake I made for her, and drank it herself. This was a first in 6 weeks. Tonight, she tried to eat a piece of pizza, which she love, but still couldn't swallow it. The plus was that she wanted to try. Today she was trying to
talk again, and actually laughed when we joked with her. All of this may not seem like much, but it is such an improvement over what we have seen the last 6 weeks.
I am still trying to be positive that we can get her back to what she was before the shingles and UTI once we get rid of them. I am also hoping to prove that dementia and be reversed or at least stopped, but our main objective now is to get her over the infections.
I encourage all of you to look into the benefits of both olive leaf extract and oregano oil. Oregano oil can be used to remedy infections and even nail fungus. Both are high in antioxidants. and both would be good to keep in your medicine cabinet.
