Klebsiella pneumoniae
Common Name: Klebsiella pneumoniae


Bacteria of the genus Klebsiella are widely distributed in nature, in the soil and in water. They are also part of the normal flora of the intestinal tract, but usually in low numbers compared with E. coli. Klebsiella, especially strains of the species K. pneumonia, are opportunistic pathogens that can cause pneumonia, urinary tract infections, and bacteremia. In recent years there has been an increase in Klebsiella infections, especially in hospitals and due to multiple-antibiotic resistant strains. In humans with underlying health problems such as diabetes mellitus, K. pneumoniae sometimes causes an acute primary infection that results in lobar pneumonia. Aggressive treatment with antibiotics is required to prevent mortality. Klebsiella is the cause of about 10% of urinary tract infections in humans.

You should tell her to go see a homeopath if it comes back because if it comes back she was never cured. The concept of cure encompasses the developement of immunity to the disease.

Believe me! There are now a whole slew of incurable UTI infections out there. These people suffer greatly. Antibiotics will cause it, not cure it. Most of the microbes that casuse UTI are normal flora found in the human body when intorduced to an area they do not normally reside. Infection (disease) occurs when the immunity is comprimised. Compromise occurs due to emotional disruptions, fear, anxiety, anger, resentment, shock, assault.

Most often UTI occurs related to sexual activity for younger women.
Staphysagria is often the remedy of choice.
