Bladder infection (cystitis) is a common and annoying problem,
especially among women, whose urinary anatomy makes them more
vulnerable than men. Frequent contributors or aggravators of cystitis
include coffee and other forms of caffeine, cigarette and alcohol use,
dehydration, excessively frequent or traumatic sex, stress, and poor
hygiene (such as wiping from back to front instead of front to
back). To end recurrent cystitis, try the following:
- Eliminate bladder irritants, like the ones mentioned above, from your diet.
your intake of water so that you urinate more frequently, allowing
less time for any irritants to contact the bladder wall.
- Eat or
drink more cranberries. Cranberries contain a substance that makes it
difficult for bacteria to adhere to the wall of the bladder. Drink
eight to 16 ounces of unsweetened cranberry juice a day, or try 500 mg
daily of cranberry extract.
- Don't hold on to urine when you feel the urge to urinate.
- Consume probiotic foods, such as plain yogurt or kefir.
wearing tight-fitting pants. Also, wear cotton-crotch underwear and
pantyhose, and use mild detergents when washing underwear.

With the estrogen drop, production and repair of the skin’s collagen and elastin also falls, which can cause a dryer, duller complexion. Estrogen also stimulates fat deposits. As these levels shrink, fat deposits become redistributed, and that causes the loss of supportive fat in the skin of the face. This allows sagging wrinkles to appear.

I was asked recently to answer a question on Quora about serious illness, and how it affects the individual and family. So I wrote this:
There is an old book called The Way Of The Pilgrim,
author unknown, about a Russian peasant set about the time of the
Russian revolution. He has a withered arm, no family or friends, no
money, no food, no home, and no one will hire him because of the
He goes to a staret (like a Russian priest), tells
his story and asks what he should do. The staret says, "Say, Lord Jesus
Christ have mercy on me 300 times a day."
He does this. A week
goes by, he goes back to the staret. "I have done as you asked, but
nothing has changed. I am very hungry. Now what should I do." The staret
answers, "Say, Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me, 1000 times a day."
goes on and on, until finally he is up to saying it 12,000 times a day.
He finds it is not only taking him all day to say this, but he has
found a job, a home, friends, had plenty to eat and his life has
It is essential to have a firm
spiritual belief to be truly happy. And it helps to believe in
reincarnation and the laws of karma. If you are able to do this, then
the world will make sense.
As the Buddha said, if you want
anything, you will suffer. So if you have an illness and want to be
cured, you will suffer. How to fix this - the wise man accepts whatever
he gets (from the Bhagavad Gita). So the secret is to SURRENDER and
accept what happens.
Ghandi, in his lifetime, wanted to achieve DESIRELESSNESS. Which is saying the same thing.
might not be happy with what occurs in this life, but if s/he accepts
the situation it will be a good learning experience. The secret is to
constantly repeat the name of God, whatever that is to you. And
everything will work out.
Richard Alpert, a.k.a. Ram Dass, a
Harvard professor, went to India and asked his guru many questions over a
period of time. He stated he only ever received 3 answers to any
question he asked: "Love everyone, serve everyone, and remember God."
One needs do nothing else.
If one doesn't believe in God, well, shit happens... and you're screwed.
