Urinary Tract Infection

Sulfur against urinary tract infections

A supply of bioavailable sulfur can be used as a treatment, curative or preventive, against urinary tract infection. To understand how this is possible, let’s take a look at what a urinary tract infection is. A urinary tract infection (UTI) is an infection in any part of your urinary system — your kidneys, ureters, bladder and urethra. Most infections involve the lower urinary tracts — the bladder and the urethra. Women are at greater risk of developing a UTI than are men.

The anatomy of the female urinary system greatly increases the risk of urinary tract infection due to the relative shortness of the urethra. This makes it easier for bacteria to pass into the bladder. A supplement in bioavailable sulfur offers an additional advantage against urinary tract infections and helps calm painful sensations and frequent urination.


SYMPTOMS AND DIFFERENT TYPES OF URINARY TRACT INFECTIONSThere are three types of urinary tract infections, according to the location of the infection. The treatment of UTI will be the same however, regardless of location.

  • Cystitis. The most common form of urinary tract infection which affects mainly women. Cystitis is inflammation of the bladder. The inflammation is usually caused by the proliferation of intestinal bacteria like Escherichia coli. The bacteria pass from the vulva to the bladder, via the urethra. Cystitis is normally accompanied by urethritis, inflammation of the urethra. Haarlem oil with its antiseptic and antibacterial power is an effective treatment UTI.
  • Urethritis. If the infection affects only the urinary urethra it is called urethritis. Different infectious agents can cause urethritis. The most common are Chlamydia and gonorrhea (the bacterium that causes gonorrhea).
  • Pyelonephritis. Pyelonephritis is a more serious condition. It means a pelvis and kidneys inflammation. This is usually caused by a bacterial infection. It may be a complication of untreated or improperly treated cystitis, which allows the proliferation of bacteria from the bladder to the kidneys. Acute pyelonephritis occurs especially pregnant women.


In all cases of Urinary Track Infections, it is important to consult a doctor or health care practitioner to find a suitable treatment. If left untreated, the infection continues to proliferate and invade the urinary system. This can lead to a more serious kidney infection (pyelonephritis) or kidney stones. In some cases, a urinary tract infection can worsen to the point of septicemia or renal failure. Haarlem oil with its powerful antiseptic antibacterial action is an effective treatment against urinary tract infection.


Haarlem oil was discovered in 1696 in Holland by Claes Tilly, it has been used in France since 1924. Haarlem oil is made up of three natural ingredients: pine turpentine (80%), linseed oil (4%) ) and sulfur (16%) contained in a 200 mg capsule.

Sulfur is a powerful antiseptic which eliminates germs and bacteria. It is widely used as an anti-parasitic on external applications and as an intestinal antiseptic. Its anti-microbial action, already well known for centuries, is largely confirmed by the widespread use of sulfonamides products (see article on sulfonamide antibiotics). The use of Haarlem oil as a treatment against urinary tract infections will contribute to the rapid elimination of bacteria and other microbes present on mass in the urinary system (kidneys, urethras, bladder and urethra). The elimination of these pathogens will result in a natural resolution of a UTI.
