York, UK (PRWeb) January 31, 2007 — A specialist glyconutrient company based in York in the UK, going by the appropriate name of ‘Sweet Cures’, is achieving significant success with their product, ‘Waterfall D-Mannose’, against bacterial prostatitis. This is a difficult problem that often does not respond well to antibiotic treatment because of bacterial resistance. Waterfall D-Mannose gets around the resistance problem by operating in an entirely different way.
A blend of the alpha and beta manomers of mannose, Waterfall D-Mannose brings relief in four complementary ways for most prostatitis sufferers — it latches onto the lectin attachment points on the pili or fimbria of the bacteria that cause most prostate infections; it coats the surface receptors of the prostate tissue cells, again preventing bacterial attachment, and as a natural anti-inflammatory it stimulates fibroblasts to make more collagen and proteoglycans, and works to correct over-active neutrophils which means that healing is speeded up, pain is lessened, and tissue integrity returns to normal faster. Finally, by helping to flush out bacteria from the urine, Waterfall D-Mannose prevents reinfection of the prostate tissues.
A major advantage of Waterfall D-Mannose is that it is just as effective against antibiotic resistant strains of E.coli and Klebsiella, the major cause of prostate infection, as it is against non-resistant varieties. Waterfall D-Mannose uses the greatest strength of the bacteria – their ability to make glycoconjugate attachments, against them. It effectively tricks the bacteria into thinking they are attached to tissue, when in fact they are attached to the free mannose that has been introduced.
It also fills up those attachment points in the tissue cells, preventing further bacterial attachment.
Anna McNamara, a partner in Sweet Cures, says, “When Sweet Cures began production four years ago, we focused very much on providing a treatment for women with persistent urinary tract infections, and Waterfall D-Mannose is highly effective for that problem. But we have gradually discovered that there are wider uses. Interstitial cystitis sufferers, for example, began using Waterfall D-Mannose for its anti-inflammatory properties, and we were delighted to discover that four heaped teaspoonfuls a day of the glyconutrient is sufficient to either clear up the problem for most sufferers, or at least, greatly ease the symptoms.”
She goes on to point out that the effect of Waterfall D-Mannose on bacterial prostatitis can be just as dramatic.
“We first of all make sure men know that if they have a prostate problem they should be thoroughly checked out by their doctor. But what we are finding is that the people who come to us have usually already been down the allopathic route, without success, and we are often seeing substantial improvement within a day or two, even when the problem has been with someone for months. In fact, an old gentleman who had been treated for prostate cancer, and picked up an infection in the process, took the trouble to come to our office. He was over the moon about the fact that he had just had his first pain free urination for two years. This was after just a few days of using Waterfall D-Mannose.”
The other partner in Sweet Cures, John Bremner, is also enthusiastic about the progress made. “All bacteria depend on glycoconjugate attachment,” John says, “and the importance of this is gradually becoming recognised as a new way to deal with bacteria when antibiotics fail. By supplying exogenic supplementation with Waterfall D-Mannose, you can very simply interfere with their attachment mechanisms. You don’t kill the bacteria, you just make them slippy.”
Anna McNamara has a way of putting it for the layman, “You are taking them by the hand and gently escorting them out of the body…”
Mr Bremner goes on to explain that there are a few other steps that can be taken to enhance the effect of supplementation with Waterfall D-Mannose when it is being used against prostatitis.
“Unlike the bladder, which is naturally flushed out every time someone urinates, the prostate has to be ‘used’ to expel the bacteria that the mannose is attached to. Otherwise they keep multiplying within the prostate tissues, and there may not be enough mannose present to lock up all of the fresh bacteria. Thus it is useful for prostatitis sufferers who can do so, to expel the bacteria in the seminal fluid by ejaculation, followed by urination. Preferably twice a day during mannose treatment.”
Although this advice does not appear to be commonly given elsewhere, they have had good feedback from prostatitis sufferers that it makes a major difference to the success of the treatment, and is worth doing even if ejaculation is initially painful. If the treatment is successful, the pain usually reduces quickly.
Finally, they suggest ‘backflushing’ the prostate tissues by intermittently stopping the flow of urine by squeezing the end of the penis during urination. However, John provides a caution. “If the bladder is infected then this is not a great idea, because obviously you may introduce infected urine to the prostate. However, if there is no bladder infection it seems to help to flush away bacteria from the prostate, probably through the same path that the bacteria were introduced there.”
Asked the question of how they deal with sceptical members of the medical profession, they have a simple answer. “What we say is, try it. Unlike antibiotics it is not going to damage anyone, and you may be pleasantly surprised, as many others have been, by the results.”
Interesting stuff, and a growing number of the people who approach Sweet Cures for a supply of Waterfall D-Mannose have already been recommended to do so by their urologist. It looks as if Sweet Cures is going to be very busy.
