Common Questions and Answers about Ammonia kills bacteria

ammonia

Avatar f tn It kills the bacteria that produce the ammonia. Other antibiotics that are sometimes used are neomycin and paramomycin. So, if anyone else has a loved one who is not being helped by Lactulose, ask a doctor about these antibiotics.
Avatar m tn Hes soiledsystem, if you indeed had high ammonia in your blood, it could sort of add up to my urea theory, in a sense that by some bacteria and fungi urea gets converted to ammonia and carbomate, by an enzyme called Urease. And most people should not have high Ammonia, as it should be converted back to Urea by an enzyme called "carbamoyl phosphate synthase" to be excreted. But what if a pathogenic organism that is causing our symptoms is also feeding on ammonia?
Avatar n tn It will get rid of it since urine has ammonia in it which kills the bacteria and allows it to heal.
Avatar m tn Hydrogen peroxide – increases oxygen in the stomach, neutralize ammonia. Breaking the bad anaerobic circle. It also kills bacteria. It also neutralize stomach acid – however that also means it will reduce digestion, leaving more food undigested, meaning it will only have a temporary positive effect as the undigested food will create ammonium." "Taking a good probiotic – helping the good bacteria win over the bad ones.
Avatar n tn I forgot to mention that the smell of boxwoods is likely from the bacterial overgrowth as well. Certain kinds of bad bacteria can produce a lot of ammonia, mercaptans, and sulfur-containing compounds that smell strangely like that cat urnine smell of boxwoods (my apologies if you're one of those people who thinks boxwoods smell nice).
Avatar m tn A study published last year in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases found that half of grocery store meat tested harbored staph bacteria. Researchers ID the overuse of antibiotics in industrial agriculture as a major cause in the rise of superbugs in our grocery store food. MRSA kills about 19,000 people a year in America. Buy organic! Glyphosate, it's found in Roundup! It effects your hormones. It's now used primarily on corn and soy crops.

1028452 tn?1537452084 Even the blood of garlic eaters can kill bacteria and it is also reported that the vapour from freshly cut garlic can kill bacteria at a distance of 20 cms!! ARTICHOKE POWDER (Globe Artichoke) A relative of the hepatoprotective Milk Thistle, is popular for its pungent taste which is attributed to phytochemicals found in the green parts of the plants called cynaropicrin and cynarin, sesquiterpene lactones with documented medicinal actions.
Avatar n tn I had the same ammonia smell and my Dr. told me it was caused by vaginal PH imbalance. You can treat it with Rephresh gel from any drugstore or Wal-Mart. You can also naturally maintain healthy vaginal ph by eating yogurt containing lactobilli and live cultures a couple times a week. Vaginal ph imbalance is caused by soap, douche, and tampons.
317787 tn?1473362051 Sorry wanted to mention that the clindamycin/cleocin can affect the body for up to 2 months after taking it as it kills all the good flora in the digestion tract. I will not take it again. I am eating lots of yogurt :) and hoping I will not get sick.
Avatar m tn The finding that some of these products do not contain viable bacteria or are contaminated with other potentially harmful bacteria raises concerns about the safety and efficacy of these products. The intestinal tract contains billions of beneficial bacteria that perform various necessary functions, such as aiding in the digestion and absorption of food and protecting the body against microorganisms that can cause infection.
Avatar f tn REmember that over washing and douching takes away the good bacteria that keeps infections away, so you could get a yeast infection. I have the same problem so I just go to the bathroom alot to dry off with toilet paper.
Avatar m tn This then leaves the blood uncleaned of harmful substances, including ammonia. The function of the liver to convert ammonia in blood may also be decreased in liver disease. Ammonia and other harmful substances may go into the brain and damage brain cells. This may affect many of the brain's important functions that could cause even more problems to your body.
Avatar m tn I think taking it with Caprylic Acid can work to some degree. The antibiotics kills most bacteria that create these smelly/irritating compounds and SB has both antibiotic properties and support for gut lining. If you take it with Amoxil/metronidazole/clarithromycin/Fluoroquinolones, you’ll see it happen within 12 hours. You’d have to take the antibiotics 6 hours prior to the SB. The affect is amazing.
Avatar n tn Colloidal silver is quack medicine. Stuff kills some bacteria in a petri-dish and sucks money from people. Exercise, esp. aerobic exercise, good nutrition, no caffiene, reduced sugar intake, and staying well hydrated is the best non-drug "therapy" around (yes, read article about caffiene and AST levels).
Avatar n tn The salt is mildly drying and kills bacteria. You will feel great afterwards...especially if you have been fighting a sinus infection. It is yucky to do, but works.
Avatar n tn If lactulose alone does not control the hepatic encephalopathy, flagyl can be added as a back-up drug. Flagyl kills some of the bacteria that are responsible for creating ammonia which is one of the chemicals that causes hepatic encephalopathy. You might want to ask your physician if this is the reason he is adding the flagyl. When I give my patients with liver disease, new prescriptions I try to explain what the new drug is for, though I have to admit, I am not always successful.

86664 tn?1291561395 For anyone taking Alinia, it really messes with your intestinal bacteria so be sure to load up on various probiotics upon completion. Tomorrow I'll post a recipe to replenish the hundreds of different types of flora found in the gut. Am feeling better with the reduced dose but now starting to worry about chances of SVR decreasing. Will see specialist soon to discuss procrit although original doctor thinks it's a nasty drug.
Avatar f tn Lyme is a bacterial infection with the ability to hide in slimy places in the human body (called 'bio-films'). When the bacteria hide there, the human immune system (as well as commonly used antibiotics) cannot penetrate the bio-films in order to kill the Lyme bacteria.

It sounds as if your husband has advanced disease.
Avatar m tn There is some blood flow in the sinuses, but for many people it’s not sufficient to deliver enough of the drug to kill the large number of bacteria in the infected sinuses. You may also have learned that saline irrigation works a little bit to relieve your sinusitis, but not enough. The reason is even simpler: gravity. Gravity will pull the salt water out of your nose before it can wash out the infected mucus in the upper part of your sinuses.
Avatar n tn Im thinking about going to the doctor and tell him about it and i went to walgreens and bought sinofresh antiseptic spray that kills mold and bacteria in your sinus. Been using for about ten days but not really helping a lot. This is sad moment for me cuz sometimes i want to go or do things and i can't. If anybody knows a cure please reply.
3060903 tn?1398568723 I guess I’m fortunate that I don’t break out much, but if you do, this could be the problem! Yucky bacteria getting spread all over your face every time you use it — definitely worth the time to clean them regularly. 30. Shower Cleaning Wand What You Need: Dish Wand (got mine at the dollar store!) Dish Soap Vinegar Simply fill your wand with half soap and half vinegar. Yeah. That's it. Shake it up and get cleaning!
Avatar m tn He has spent many years studying human DNA and the consequences that bacteria/viruses have on the make up of deoxyribonucleic acid. Once our DNA is damaged, we have to rebuild the damage done to it or we will fail over and over again. I provided hair samples to him so that he could extract the DNA to determine what my problem is. The analysis report showed that I had candida in my liver/ in my blood, and kidneys. The report also showed that I had inflammation and poor circulation.
Avatar n tn Be sure that the doctor tests you for all possible infections b/c even though you have not been active for 2 yrs does not mean you cannot carry bacteria for that period of time. If the results do not return anything, try adding yougart to your diet. I know it sounds weird but I personally feel that my vagina has more of a pleasant smell when I eat it..Just a thought..Good luck.
Avatar m tn I cant wash this smell off, its like some chemical compound.
264233 tn?1216345915 This is the same tired old argument used for ozone, colloidal silver and a variety of other quackery scams. And also boiling drinking water safely kills bacteria and viruses. So does cooking food - does that mean we should cook ourselves in order to be cured of the virus? Using your logic, it DOES! "Another one for curing fungus nail infections . I'm not suggesting anything." Yes you are.
