Urine remains in the bladder for about six hours before it is drained. If bacteria get into the bladder, it will duplicate every 20 minutes—a bladder infection can become serious very quickly. The infection will degrade the lining of the bladder and possibly travel up the tubes from the bladder to the kidneys, causing a kidney infection.To aid a bladder infection, two tablespoons of silver liquid should be taken hourly for the first two days. For the next two weeks, take two tablespoons twice a day. You may expect to destroy the bladder infection within the first 12 to 24 hours.Structured silver liquid can be taken with cranberry juice or juniper berries.
