Cystitis Clears up with Pulses
Some people are incredibly
intuitive. Susan C. turned out to be one such
In her early forties, Susan saw
me for chronic urinary difficulties. Strangely, she
had considerable difficulty voiding at home and
wasn't able to urinate at all in public restrooms.
Urine cultures had been consistently negative.
Repeated courses of antibiotics and Nystatin,
prescribed on the assumption that urinary symptoms
might have been due to occult bladder infection or
possibly Candida yeast overgrowth, hadn't helped. On
three separate occasions, her urologist tried to
address the problem with urethral dilatations under
anesthesia. The urologist hoped that, once
stretched, the muscle in the region of the neck of
the urinary bladder would remain loose and relieve
her symptoms. All three attempts failed.
Susan hoped that perhaps I could
mitigate her problem by detecting and treating
hidden food and mold allergy. She attended my
autoregulation class before the results of
laboratory results became available for review. She
became intrigued with the possibility of improving
her bladder sphincter function with autoreg,
especially with directed pulses to the urethral
As it turned out, Susan was
another natural autoregger. During the next visit,
even before I could suggest that she try directed
pulses to control her bladder symptoms, she told me
she had gotten the idea of doing so during my
autoreg workshop, and that she had learned to direct
pulses to her bladder sphincter (about an inch below
and deep to the pubic bone). Furthermore, she was
excited about the initial positive response to
directed pulses. I was happy to learn of her initial
experiment and made some further suggestions.
At a follow-up visit six weeks
later, Susan said,
"This stuff is science fiction.
Too good to believe. I have suffered from painful
urination for years. I have had cystoscopies and
urethral dilatations done. I have taken antibiotics
so many times. My doctor tried Nystatin several
times. And now this. I bring pulses to my sphincter
and I am able to go. God, it is that simple. Who
would believe it?"
She visited me on a few occasions
after she made the above comment and reported
continued relief from her urinary symptoms. Then, I
didn't see her for some years. I wondered whether
the benefits of autoregulation had lasted or whether
they had simply faded away.
One day while writing this
chapter—about six years after my initial
consultation with Susan—I asked some nurses if
anyone remembered her and had any further follow-up
information from her about her bladder problems. A
nurse looked at me curiously, then asked why I asked
the question on that particular day. I told her I
was working on my autoregulation book and that my
thoughts just happened to wander to Susan's bladder
problems. She laughed, asked me to wait, stepped out
of the office, and moments later, returned with a
man. "This is Susan's husband," she grinned. "He
comes here sometimes to pick up nutrient protocols
you prescribed for her."
I asked Susan's husband some
general questions about Susan, then inquired about
Susan's bladder sphincter function. He replied,
"Doctor Ali, we still laugh at
that sometimes. If that isn't a miracle, I don't
know what is. She has been free of her bladder
symptoms ever since she learned to direct her pulses
to her bladder sphincter. No more anesthesia! No
more cystoscopies! No more urethral dilatation.
Unbelievable, isn't it?"
I don't witness such healing
often. But when it does happen, it restores my faith
in miracles—and in the unfathomable wisdom of body
