You’re probably developing a bladder infection if you experience any one of the these symptoms:
- Cloudy urine
- A burning sensation when you urinate
- A sense that your bladder is still full even after going to the bathroom
- The frequent urge to urinate but only eliminate small amounts of urine
See your doctor immediately if these symptoms don’t improve in 24hrs or there’s blood in your urine, fever, lower back pain, nausea or vomiting.
When bladder infections aren’t treated properly, they can cause permanent kidney damage. Here’s a wrap up of what you missed here at Life Retreat this week. Have a great weekend!

RECIPE OF THE WEEK – HOMEMADE PASTA
The majority of pasta products are produced from highly refined flour – which means that they are no better than white bread – and just as constipating. Some “whole grain” pasta products are an improvement, but we doubt if any of them are produced from genuine 100% whole grain flour.
The reason we say this is because we have tried for years to produce a genuine whole grain pasta, and it always turns out as a very, very heavy, coarse and grainy product – nothing like the so-called whole wheat pasta products that are generally available.For those who wish to produce their own home-made pasta products, here are a few ideas.
