Symptoms of Candida and Candidiasis

“As long as there is breath in my body I will never ever cease to be a seeker after truth.”

TRUTH:  If left untreated YEAST will shut your organs down and kill you!   It almost happened to a good friend of mine!

Candida is a type of fungus (yeast) which exists in the body. In a healthy body, it doesn`t cause any problems, but when an overgrowth occurs, it can result in a condition called candidiasis. Candidiasis can lead to many conditions in the body such as thrush, abdominal bloating, chronic fatigue syndrome, depression and IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome).

Candidiasis

Candidiasis is basically a twentieth century disease, resulting from medical developments like antibiotics, birth control pills, ulcer medications, and estrogen replacement therapy (HRT). And it can be triggered at a very young age, when children are first being treated with antibiotics (ear and throat infections).

Candidiasis is a fungal infection that is caused by a yeast known as Candida albicans.

This fungus is usually present in the mouth, throat, gastrointestinal tract and the genital region. It can also be present on the skin. Under normal circumstances, the fungus does not pose any risk to the body because the number of the fungus is kept under control by other bacteria. However, when the fungus multiplies, that is when candidiasis sets in.Candidiasis usually is seen to develop in people with compromised immune system. If the infection is not treated, it can become quite serious. Candidiasis can develop in the blood, and from there it can affect different organs of the body, including the brain.

 

Although widespread, candidiasis, or yeast overgrowth, is generally overlooked by the medical establishment because it’s symptoms so closely mimic those of other conditions. Alternative physicians, however, recognize the seriousness of candidiasis, and where conventional medicine has often been ineffective in treating candidiasis, various alternative methods offer much hope for success.

Everyone has candida, a form of yeast ( Candida Albicans ), normally confined to the lower bowels, vagina and the skin. In healthy individuals with strong, functioning immune systems, it is harmless and kept in check by “good” bacteria, called Bifidobacteria and Acidophilus. But if the balance of the intestinal environment is altered by a compromised immune system or other factors, then opportunistic candida proliferates, infecting other body tissues. The candida becomes pathyogenic, transforming from a simple yeast into an aggressive ( mycelial ) fungus that can severely compromise one’s health. This condition is known as “candidiasis”.

According to James Braley, MD, medical director of Immuno Labs, Inc., in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, the fungal form of candida appears to permeate the gastro intestinal mucosal lining and breaks down barriers to the blood stream. ” When the fungal form of the candida occurs in the body, allergic substances can penetrate into the blood more easily, where they form immense complexes, and even promote food allergy reactions, ” Dr Braley says. Since their symptoms are often interrelated, he emphasizes that candidiasis should usually be treated together with food allergies.

Candida Symptoms

  • Frequent stomach pains and digestion problems
    • Skin problems (skin infections, eczema, psoriasis, acne)
    • Foggy brain / Trouble concentrating
    • Constant tiredness and exhaustion
    • Anxiety
    • Mood swings
    • Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)
    • Anger outbursts
    • Irritability
    • Headaches
    • Intense cravings for sugars, sweets, and breads
    • Itchy skin

Just having one or two of the symptoms listed above does not necessarily mean you have Candidiasis, but having several of these could be sign of a Candida overgrowth or food allergy, which has similar symptoms.

Candida is the most dangerous of all the germs that can take over your intestinal tract after being treated with Antibiotics,Cipro or doxycycline.

It is a member of the vegetable family. It is a cousin to “molds”. Yeasts are among the oldest living life forms on earth. They are a single celled life form containing no chlorophyll. There are many different types of yeast. Yeasts are common on plant leaves and flowers, on the surfaces of skin and the intestinal tract of animals. The type of yeast that we use to make bread or brew alcoholic beverages is different then Candida. These are thought as food yeasts. Candida is not a food yeast. It is not allowed to be used in the making bread or beer etc. Candida is thought of as pathogenic yeast. Pathogenic means that it can cause disease.

Candida is referred to as “dimorphic”, which means it can exist or live in 2 different states or forms. As”yeast” it is a single cell plant life. It has a large, round, thick spore that is shaped like a chicken egg. It is asexual, which means it does not need a mate to reproduce. It reproduces by “budding” or growing buds. Do you recall seeing buds forming on the branches of trees or plants? Candida looks similar. As it grows it resembles a bunch of grapes. As it spreads it grows more branches, which then “buds” more bunches of “grapes”. This is the way Candida appears in its other form or state, which is “fungal”. Here it looks like lots of little beads strung together by threads. Just like there are safe yeasts, there are safe fungus. Mushrooms are an example of a fungus, which does not produce disease. Eating mushrooms will not cause candida.

Candida eats sugars and some fats that way animals do. This is how it feeds. Candida loves the dark, warm and moist environment of the intestines. It attaches itself to the intestinal wall and when it is in the fungal form tries to bury itself deep into your intestinal lining. It grows roots (like a weed) digging into the lining of your intestinal tract looking for food. When it does this it produces infections and illness in your body.

Candida is the most dangerous of all the germs that can take over your  intestinal tract after being treated with Antibiotics, Cipro or doxycycline.

Candida albicans is a dimorphic organism. This means that under normal conditions it is a sugar fermenting budding yeast. In acidic pH or when our immune system is weakened, it shifts into its fungal form and becomes pathogenic (disease causing, harmful). This condition is known as candidiasis. Candida overgrowth then sets off a cycle that leads to the further weakening of the body’s defenses, which in turn allows candida to spread even further.

When the protection of the useful microbes and that of the intestinal lining is impaired, proliferation of harmful organisms starts (dysbiosis). Candida transforms itself from a harmless yeast form to a pathogenic fungal form, a condition called candidiasis. Antibiotics contribute to this state twofold. They kill or suppress many of the useful bacteria in the intestines (together with the bacteria they were supposed to kill elsewhere in the body) and also serve as growth promoting factors for candida.

Dangers of uncontrolled candida growth
When Candida growth becomes uncontrolled the following happens: First, fungal metabolites and/or toxins interfere with the functioning of nutrient-uptake and their transfer into the bloodstream. Then the fungus grows long stringy structures (rhizoids) that can penetrate the upper cell layer of the intestinal wall causing symptoms very similar to those of Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

Leaky Gut Syndrome
Over time, the rhizoids can penetrate the gut wall and make it inflamed and porous causing Leaky Gut Syndrome. The damage to the gut from candida comes both from impaired biochemical processes in cells of the intestinal lining and the physical damage caused by the spread of the rhizoids. In the next step the rhizoids break down the barrier between the intestine and the circulatory system in which case candida can enter the bloodstream and spread throughout the body (Systemic candida). Candida can invade virtually any organ or part of the body where the defenses (physical and immunological) are weakened.

Leaky Gut Syndrome is thought to be the underlying cause of bowel disorders and very likely the stage of candidiasis that contributes substantially to food intolerances, environmental sensitivities, allergies and asthma. Source     http://www.ninazu.com/whatis.html

 

Candidiasis Symptoms in Men
Candida yeast infection in men can be regarded to be asymptomatic, as it rarely cause physical signs, when compared with female yeast infection. But when symptoms do occur, they include irritation and inflammation of the area in the head of the penis, which may be accompanied by soreness and itchiness. Reddening of genitals and small blisters, may also occur in the same area. White discharge, lesions, and burning sensation are some other symptoms of genital candidiasis in men which may also be the other male yeast infection symptoms.

Candidiasis can affect areas of the body far removed from candida colonizations in the gastro intestinal tract and vagina. It’s symptoms cover a broad spectrum and the condition can cause a number of diseases ranging from allergies, vaginitis, and thrush ( that is a whitish fungus in the mouth or vagina ), to an invasion of the genital-urinary tract, eyes, liver, heart, or central nervous system. At it’s most destructive, candidiasis is involved in autoimmune diseases such as; Addison’s disease and Aids. Other symptoms of candidiasis, according to Dr Braley, include digestive problems such as bloating, cramping, gas and diarrhea, respiratory problems, coughing, wheezing, earaches, central nervous system imbalances, generalized fatigue, and loss of libido.

Symptoms of Candidiasis

There is a wide array of candidiasis symptoms depending on individual age, sex, environmental exposures, and immune systems. These include, but are not limited to:

Chronic fatigue, especially after eating
Depression
Gastro Intestinal problems such as: bloating, gas, intestinal cramps, chronic diarrhea, constipation, or heartburn
Rectal itching
Allergies ( including both food and airborn )
Severe pre-menstrual syndrome
Impotence
Memory loss, severe mood swings, and feeling mentally ” disturbed “.
Recurrent fungal infections such as ” jock itch “, athelete’s foot, or ringworm
Extreme sensitivity to chemicals, perfumes, smoke, or other odors
Recurrent vaginal or urinary infections
Prostatitis
A feeling of being light headed or drunk after minimal wine, beer, or certain foods
These symptoms worsen in moldy places such as basements or in damp climates, and after eating or drinking yeast or foods containing sugar.

Causes of Candidiasis

Since many of it’s symptoms are shared with other conditions, candidiasis must be diagnosed by examining predisposing factors in a thoughrough personal medical history. Leon Chaitow, N.D., D.O., of London England, decribes the likely candidate for candida overgrowth as someone whose medical history includes:
Steroid hormone medication such as cortisone, or corticosteroids, often prescribed for skin conditions such as rashes, eczema, or psoriasis; prolonged or repeated use of antibiotics which are frequently given for urinary and ear infections, sinusitis, bronchitis, and other infections; ulcer medications such as “Tagamet” and “Zantac” or oral contraceptives. Certain illnesses such as diabetes, cancer, and aids can also increase susceptibility to candida overgrowth.

WOMEN

Many women get vaginal candidiasis, which causes a thick white discharge accompanied with itching and burning sensation. The infection can also develop in the mouth in the form of white ulcers on the tongue, gums and insides of the cheek.

Both men and women are susceptible to candidiasis. Breastfeeding mothers can pass on the infection to babies through breast milk.It is very rare for the infection to pass through sexual contact.

 

As Leyardia Black, ND, of Lopez Island, Washington, points out, ” Candidiasis is basically a twentieth century disease, a disease resulting from medical developments like antibiotics, birth control pills, and estrogen replacement therapy. It can be triggered at a very young age, when children are first being treated with antibiotics.” DR. Chaitow agrees, ” Fully thirty five percent of women using birth control pills have associated causes of acute vaginal candidiasis, and there are undoubtedly many others who have less pronouced evidence of yeast overgrowth as immune competence is gradually compromised by the hormonal onslaught.”

Murray Susser, MD, of Santa Monica, California, points out that since yeast infections enter the body easily through the vagina, and yeast festers in estrogen, women of child-bearing age are more vulnerable to candidiasis. Also, women who have been pregnant are susceptible, since hormonal changes encourage candida overgrowth. When men develop candidiasis, antibiotics, high sugar intake, or immune suppression from illness, toxins, and stress, are usually the root cause.

Frequently, candidiasis is caused by a combination of factors. As Dr.Chaitow explains, ” All too often more than one influence is operating. Over a few years, a patient may have had several series of antibiotics for a variety of conditions while using steroids as well, perhaps in the form of the contraceptive pill. If the patient, most commonly a young woman, also happens to be living on a diet which is rich in sugars, then the candida is very likely to have spread beyond it’s usual borders into new territory.”

Taking antibiotics or steroids for a long period of time or having a weakened immune system can lead to candidiasis. Even those suffering from diabetes or having iron deficiency are prone to this infection.

 

As Dr. Chaitow points out, when the immune system is completely suppressed, as in Aids, yeast proliferates freely and colonizes the body and blood stream, leading to septicemia (blood poisoning). In less drastic but more prevalent cases, the immune system is temporarily suppressed and T-helper cells (lymphocytes which pass into the blood stream to help fight infection) are destroyed. Such immune suppression can be due to any number of factors, such as poor diet including ingestion of pesticides and preservatives, alcohol use, chemotherapy, radiation, exposure to enviromental toxins, antibiotics which injure or destroy the T-cells, and stress. Consequently, conditions are created for opportunistic infections and yeast to grow.

Parasites Fungi? Not Me!

Antibiotics

According to Dr. Sausser, antibiotics may be the single greatest cause of candidiasis, because antibiotic treatment for infections is non desriminatory, killing the “good ” intestinal chemistry-balancing bacteria, as well as the ” bad ” infection-causing bacteria. Both acidophilus and bifidobacteria produce natural antifungal substances as well as antibacterial materials as part of their control mechanism over yeast. One of the activities of the good bacteria is the manufacture of a B vitamin, biotin, which exerts control over yeast. When biotin is lacking, as a result of damage by antibiotics to acidophilus, bifidobacteria, and the microflora ecology, yeast has a chance to change from it’s simple yeast form into a different organism, an encroaching mycelial ( vegetative ) fungus.

Antibiotics can cause the altered inbalanced intestinal environment that candida requires to change into it’s mycelial form. Dr. Chaitow explains, ” Candida puts down minute rootlets which penetrate the tissues on which the yeast is growing. When this happens to be the inner wall of the intestines, it breaks down the barrier which exists between the closed world of the bowel and the body. Toxic debris, yeast waste products, and partially digested proteins are allowed into the blood stream, resulting in allergic and toxic reations.”

Healthy bifidobacteria and acidophilus intestinal colonies can usually withstand one or two short episodes of antibiotics without serious harm. If, however, use of antibiotics is frequent or prolonged as with a course for acne treatment or an infection, then the spread of candida becomes inevitable. ” A vicious cycle may develop as a result, antibiotics alter the balance of intestinal flora and suppress the immune system. An individual with suppressed immune function is much more susceptible, not only to candidiasis but to bacterial infections, which are then treated with antibiotics, which, in turn, increase the growth of candida and so on,” says Dr. Chaitow.

Researchers at the Agency for Science, Technology and Research’s (A*STAR) Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology (IMCB) have discovered new molecular mechanisms that provide a more detailed understanding of how the normally non-cancerous Dr. Jekyll-like fungus known as Candida albicans transforms into a serious and often life-threatening Mr. Hyde-like form.

  1. albicans can cause serious and potentially life-threatening infections in the mouth, blood and other tissues of people who are undergoing cancer chemotherapy or radiation treatments, or who have developed AIDS or other diseases that damage the immunity of the individual.

In two separate papers published last month in Developmental Cell and in August in the EMBO journal, the team of scientists led by Wang Yue, principal investigator at IMCB, have managed to reveal previously unknown mechanisms which are responsible for causing the infectious phase of C. albicans.

The fungus starts its ‘attack’ on a patient by changing its oval shape into a filamentous form, which has thin, threadlike appendages emerging from the cell body. Wang’s team, who has been studying C. albicans for more than seven years, was responsible for identifying the master “controller” protein called Hgc1 in 20041.

This “controller” functions like a regulator and tells the fungus when to start the transformation from the harmless oval shape to the infectious filamentous form………

Parasites are poisoning You

Treating Candidiasis

Successful treatment of candidiasis first requires the reduction of factors which predispose a patient to candida overgrowth. Secondly, the patient’s immune function must be strengthened. Diet, nutritional supplements, herbal medicine, ayurvedic medicine,Bob Becks protocols,Rife and acupuncture are some of the choices alternative physicians use to accomplish these ends.

 

Saliva Test:

Try this simple test to see if you have candida. First thing in the morning, before you put ANYTHING in your mouth, get a clear glass. Fill with water and work up a bit of saliva, then spit it into the glass of water. Check the water every 15 minutes or so for up to one hour. If you have a candida yeast infection, you will see strings (like legs) traveling down into the water from the saliva floating on the top, or “cloudy” saliva will sink to the bottom of the glass, or cloudy specks will seem to be suspended in the water. If there are no strings and the saliva is still floating after at least one hour, you are probably candida yeast free.

Diet :
In order to overcome candidiasis, sugar must be avoided in all it’s various forms. These include : sucrose, dextrose, fructose, fruit juices, honey, maple syrup, molasses, milk products (which contains lactose), most fruit (except berries), and potatoes (whose starch converts into sugar). Dr Black says, ” In treating candida, my basic dietary taboos are sweets, alcohol, and refined carbo-hydrates.” Many candidiasis sufferers also have allergies and sensitivity to various foods. Although candida albicans yeast is not synonymous to yeast in foods, such as bread, a cross-reaction between the food yeast and candida frequently occurs. As a result, foods containing or promoting yeast, such as baked goods, alcohol, and vinegar, should be avoided until possible sensivities are clearly diagnosed.

 

According to Dr Susser, sugar in the diet can greatly contribute to candida overgrowth. When sugar is eaten, intestinal fermentation creates a toxin called Acetaldehyde which affects all of the body’s physiological functions, including digestion and hormonal processes. Yeast thrives on sugar in order to grow, therefore, a high-sugar diet is one of the predisposing factors for candidiasis.

 

Dr Black states that some of her patients are very sensitive to yeast and do better staying away from yeast containing foods. To test for such sensitivity, she takes patients off all yeast containing foods for a week. Then she adds such foods back in the diet, one at a time. If the symptoms reappear, then clearly yeast containing foods should be avoided. Similarly, Dr Braly employs a rotation diet when he suspects food allergies. On this regiment, patients avoid certain suspected allergic foods and rotate non allergic food every four or more days. They are then later reintroduced to the suspected foods after three to six months to see if symptoms are provoked. Molds are another aspect of candida sensitivity. These include food molds found in cheeses, grapes, mushrooms, and fermented foods, and also environmental molds found in wet climates, in damp basements, in plants and outdoors. Molds and yeast can also exchange forms. Therefore, the ingestable molds of cheeses and fermented foods should be avoided. Avoiding food yeast and molds does not attack the candida yeast itself, but is an attempt to ease stress on the immune system caused by substances that can trigger allergies.

 

I had my blood analyzed by a dark field microscope after getting rid of the CFIDS virus with 2 months of blood electrification and Magnetic Pulsing. The doctor was practically shocked as to how healthy my blood looked. It shouldn’t of looked good after being sick 16 years but it did. He said he could make a poster of it to show all hiw clients and say “this is what your blood should look like”.

Dr Susser also advises patients to avoid yogurt because of it’s high sugar content, despite it’s high concentration of lacto-bacilli, which suppresses “bad” bacteria and keeps other organisms under control. He finds that freeze-dried acidophilus supplements in capsule form are more effective in combating bacteria than even unsweetened raw yogurt. Candida growth can also be fostered in the diet through consumption of meat, dairy, and poultry products due to the heavy use of antibiotics. Traces of antibiotics given to dairy cows can later show up in milk. Meat eaters should make sure that meat is free of antibiotic contamination. Organic (hormone and antibiotic free) meat and poultry should be consumed whenever possible. For candidiasis patients, sea food (free of mercury toxins) and vegatable protein are preferable since they are not only antibiotic free, but lower in fat. According to Dr Chaitow, both bifido-bacteria and acidophilus should be supplemented during candidiasis treatment to help repopulate the bowel, and for antifungal activity. This “good” bacteria supplementation is called “Pro-biotics”. Dr Chaitow also recommends that other pro-biotic products such as lactobacillus vulgaricus, be used to assist the colonizing activities of bifido-bacteria and acidophilus.

Alcohol

Candidiasis patients should also stay away from all alcohol since it is composed of fermented and refined sugar. It is also more toxic than sugar and feeds yeast. According to Dr Susser, alcohol suppresses the immune system, disturbs the whole adrenal axis, and you can say ampirically that it makes anyone with candida worse.
Some candidiasis sufferers will feel, and appear to be, intoxicated. An unsual symptom of certain people with severe candidiasis is the presence of alcohol in the blood stream even when none has been consumed. First discovered in Japan, and called “drunk disease,” this condition creates strains of candida albicans which turn acetaldehyde (which is the chemical created by sugar and yeast fermentation) into ethanol. This is a process well understood by distillers of homemade brew. These candidiasis patients whose yeast turns sugar into alcohol are chronically drunk. They have developed what is only half-jokingly called “auto-brewery syndrome”.

Old Methods of Diet and Anti-Fungals Don’t Work
According to Dr. Simoncini in Italy, if you use diet and anti-fungals against candida then you cause the candida to burrow deeper into the body away from the intestines in search of simple carbohydrates and away from the anti-fungals. Then the candida infection becomes more invasive and more systemic. Then you can have candida in your liver, kidneys, lungs etc

 

Colloidal silver provides a three-fold attack on the problems of candida. First, the colloidal silver kills off anaerobic bacteria and virii wherever it comes in contact with them. Therefore, the colloidal silver virtually provides a secondary immune system against all types of disease and infections, while treating the candida. Thus much of the problems of candida are treated immediately, before the candida can be cleaned out of the system. Second, colloidal silver is unusually effective in treating the candida infection itself. And third, colloidal silver has a strange and dynamic way of healing injured and damaged tissues fast. Since yeast infections of all kinds usually attack and consume the living tissue, a healing process is badly needed, and colloidal silver has a very unique way of healing these tissues fast.

Externally users continually report that colloidal silver will cure athlete’s foot, vaginal yeast infections, as well as candida infections of the skin very quickly and then heals the damaged tissues.

What does it mean if someone gets better using these devices but still doesn’t feel totally healthy? It means that he/she has gotten rid of the source of the problem but not the results of the problem. The results may be a congested liver, weakened adrenals, mineral imbalances, low thyroid output, lessened acidophilus count in the intestines, weakened cardiovascular system, kidney stones, gallbladder stones, systemic Candida, hard to kill intestinal bacteria and parasites, and countless other nusances.

“This tripulser 9 is great against candida – the most effective tool I’ve used. I’ve been using it daily for 3 weeks now and it has been doing wonders – I am very grateful to you for your efforts. I’ve had candida for my whole life and been fighting it for around 2 years now so I know how hard it is to kill candida. I’ve tried around 30+ remedies and all have worked to a certain extent but your zapper is certainly the most effective. ”   Neil S London

Alternative physicians and biologists such as Dr. Hulda Clark and Dr. Bob Beck have used electric current stimulation to control parasites and candidas. They postulate that, since every species has its own unique vibration rhythm, it should be possible to destroy a parasite without harming the host, by inducing resonance through electric stimulation. This became the underlying principle for constructing the zapper, a device that generates an electric current of appropriate frequency, “recharges” the human organism and helps to control harmful micro-organisms

CANDIDA OVERGROWTH SYMPTOMS
(Candida Albicans)

Thank you to the National Candida Center
http://www.nationalcandidacenter.com/

Reviewing the signs and symptoms to determine if you have Candida Albicans yeast infection Overgrowth.

Candida Albicans yeast infection Overgrowth, Candida Overgrowth (CO) symptoms are so numerous and seemingly unrelated that they can be confusing to both doctor and patient. The majority of people who have CO do not realize they have it until they become seriously ill. Why? Because candida yeast not only steals nutrients from the food that you eat, it then poisons the tissues with waste material containing over 75 known toxins. Candida albicans is linked, directly or indirectly, to the following list of conditions and symptoms. A “symptom” is an outward sign that points to a deeper problem.

~ Self Test: http://www.nationalcandidacenter.com/candida-self-exams/ … Spit Test.
The best time to do this test is the first thing in the morning as soon as you wake up. Before you rinse, spit, or put anything in your mouth, go get a glass of water (in a clear glass). Now build up a bunch of saliva (just mouth saliva, do not cough up anything) and spit it into the glass of water. Observe what happens.
~
My Body Fluids The saliva will float. That is OK and normal. If within 15 minutes you see thin projections extending downward into the water, it is a positive sign for candida. The projections may look like hair, or small strings, like a jelly fish or spider legs, moving down into the water from the saliva floating on the top. Other positive indications might be very “cloudy” saliva that will sink to the bottom of the glass within a few minutes or particles that slowly sink or suspend below the saliva glob. What you are seeing are colonies of yeast which band together to form the strings.

LEAKY GUT ~ CO Dysbiosis
http://www.drdooley.com/gut-dysbiosis-therapy.php
It is estimated that over 30 million people in the U.S, predominantly women, suffer from the multiple effects of an imbalance in the gastrointestinal system.
The gut has three primary functions:
~ Digestion of foods and conversion into vitamins
~ Absorption of nutrients
~ Prevention of toxins and pathogens from entering the body
~
When the Gut Is Healthy
Approximately 500 species of bacteria, as well as many species of yeast and other organisms, live in the human gastrointestinal tract and make up the “gut flora.” These “friendly” bacteria are vital for good digestion and the health of the intestines in general, and mostly have names beginning with “Lactobacillus” or “Bifidobacteria,” which denotes the class of bacteria they belong to. You may have noticed food products like yogurt and acidophilus milk that contain these bacteria. It is becoming more common for them to be added, just as vitamins and minerals are frequently added to breakfast cereals, for example.
~
When the gut flora is in a healthy balance it is called “orthobiosis,” which is a term introduced in the early 1900s by the great microbiologist Elie Metchnikoff. When our gut is out of balance we are said to have “dysbiosis.” Metchnikoff thought dysbiosis so concerning that he coined the expression “Death begins in the GUT!”
~
What Can Go Wrong?
Not all of the hundreds of species of organisms that make up the gut flora are “friendly.” There are also a number of organisms that don’t provide the body with any benefits, or do so only when their numbers are kept low by competing friendly bacteria. Such microorganisms include coliform bacteria (E.coli, etc.), yeasts/fungus, parasites, and bacteroides.

Illness can occur when the amount of friendly bacteria is reduced and the other organisms are able to increase their numbers and become the majority. There are a number of factors that can disrupt the balance of organisms in the intestines and lead to overgrowth of the less desirable species.
The most important factors are:
~ Antibiotic use (abuse)
~ Use of the birth control pill
~ Use of other hormones, especially immunosuppressants like steroids
~ Diet, especially one high in sugar
~ Alcohol
~ Stress
~
Conditions often caused by dysbiosis include Irritable Bowel Syndrome, acne, food allergies, Chronic Fatigue and depression. But you can help repopulate the good bacteria by eating foods that contain natural, healthy bacterias, including yogurt and acidophilus milk. You also can take an acidophilus supplement and something called Fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS), which is a plant-based supplement that serves as a “super food” for these good bacteria.
~
Gut dysbiosis can lead to changes in the lining of the bowel that increases the permeability of the intestine, resulting in leaky gut syndrome.
~
Symptoms of Leaky Gut Syndrome / Intestinal Permeability
Symptoms include:

abdominal pain ~ asthma ~ chronic joint pain ~ chronic muscle pain ~ confusion ~ fuzzy or foggy thinking ~ gas ~ indigestion ~ mood swings ~ nervousness ~ poor immunity ~ recurrent vaginal infections ~ skin rashes ~ diarrhea ~ bed-wetting ~ recurrent bladder infections ~ poor memory ~ shortness of breath ~ constipation ~ bloating ~ aggressive behavior ~ anxiety ~ poor libido ~ fatigue ~ and just feeling “toxic”.
~
Leaky gut syndrome is associated with the following conditions:
Bloating and weight gain ~ Chronic fatigue syndrome ~ Celiac disease ~ Crohn’s disease ~ Environmental illness ~ Hives ~ Acne ~ Allergies ~ Inflammatory joint disease / arthritis ~ Intestinal infections ~ Pancreatic insufficiency ~ Ulcerative colitis ~ Giardia ~ Eczema ~ Psoriasis ~ Food allergies and sensitivities ~ Liver dysfunction ~ Rheumatoid arthritis ~ Irritable bowel syndrome
~
Candidiasis
When the natural yeast or fungi found in the body grows out of control, it can result in a condition called Candidiasis, an infection caused by a species of Candida fungi, especially Candida albicans. These fungi are found almost everywhere in the environment, and some may live harmlessly along with the abundant “native” species of bacteria that normally colonize the mouth, gastrointestinal tract and vagina. The growth of Candida is usually controlled by the presence of the native bacteria and by the body’s immune defenses. If the population of native bacteria is decreased, especially by antibiotics, or if the immune defenses are weakened by illness malnutrition, or certain medications (corticosteroids or anticancer drugs), Candida fungi can multiply enough to cause symptoms by spewing many toxins into the bloodstream and liver. It can affect many different parts of the body, causing either localized infections or overwhelming illness, depending on the patient and his or her underlying health.
~
Candidiasis can usually be found in exposed and most part of the body, such as the mouth and throat (called thrush), the vagina (usually called a yeast infection), and in the case of children, as diaper rash. Candidiasis can overwhelm the whole body, and in some people can result in not only stomach distress such as bloating and gas, but also in fatigue, depression, anxiety, skin eruptions, and immune system malfunction.

Gluten Intolerance

GLUTEN INTOLERANCE
~
PCOS Lady:
Gluten Intolerance and Celiac Disease can be wicked to and in you… Three sets of symptoms are listed for you with the sites… The symptoms overlap other medical conditions… Headaches may be explained by being tested for one of these conditions…
~ I stress everyone be tested for Celiac Disease to know…
~
FACT: Most doctors can not draw a diagnosis from all your symptoms! They jump to diagnose you on a few only, hence a misdiagnosis!
FACT: Most doctors can not read your blood tests as a whole, only a few results they understand together…
~ I suggest you see an Endocrinologist, who specializes on internal chemistry, etc… (especially Diabetes)
~
SYMPTOMS COUNT! ~ All your symptoms… ~ Keep track of them… ~ It is your life!
~
Gluten Intolerance Symptoms – How Do You Know If Gluten Is Making You Sick?
~
* What are gluten intolerance symptoms?
* Are people with gluten intolerance just fussy eaters with a new excuse for their picky food habits?
~
Research shows that gluten sensitivity in some form, including celiac disease and mild gluten intolerance, affects approximately 15% of the US population. These statistics are likely to be similar in Western countries with similar health issues and dietary patterns.
~ Are you one of these people?
~ How do you recognize gluten intolerance symptoms?
~
First of all let’s * identify the difference between celiac disease and gluten intolerance. Celiac disease is an immune reaction, a severe sudden onset allergic reaction, to the protein called gluten. This is commonly found in grains such as wheat, rye, barley and oats. While celiac disease is initially an auto-immune disorder, it is also a disease of malabsorption, because essential nutrients are not absorbed. Therefore one of the most devastating symptoms of long-term undiagnosed celiac disease is malnutrition.
~
Gluten intolerance often has a slower onset than celiac disease, and may be hard to diagnose due to the broad range of symptoms and causes.
~
If you imagine a continuum of gluten intolerance symptoms, celiac disease is usually at the most extreme end with immediate autoimmune reactions. Some people with celiac disease may not have symptoms, but internally malabsorption and malnutrition can erode health over many years. Both celiac disease and gluten intolerance can be exacerbated by emotional stress, infection, surgery, pregnancy and childbirth. Every individual with some level of gluten intolerance or allergy may experience different shades of symptoms, hence the challenge for medical practitioners to diagnose.
~
So what are the specific symptoms of gluten intolerance and
celiac disease?

~
~ Weight loss or weight gain
~ Nutritional deficiencies due to malabsorption e.g. low iron levels
~ Gastro-intestinal problems (bloating, pain, gas, constipation, diarrhea)
~ Fat in the stools (due to poor digestion)
~ Aching joints
~ Depression
~ Eczema
~ Head aches
~ Exhaustion
~ Irritability and behavioural changes
~ Infertility, irregular menstrual cycle and miscarriage
~ Cramps, tingling and numbness
~ Slow infant and child growth
~ Decline in dental health
~
Undiagnosed for long periods of time, food intolerances have been found to contribute to diabetes, bowel cancer, anemia and osteoporosis.

~ Dummies … Symptoms of Gluten Sensitivity and Celiac Disease … #4 of 7 in series segments …
Celiac disease and gluten sensitivity share some of the same symptoms. Although the actual damage occurs in the gastrointestinal tract, specifically in the small intestine, the symptoms manifest in many different ways and often show up throughout your entire body.
~
Gluten sensitivity and celiac disease have hundreds of symptoms; the following lists don’t contain them all, but are a good sampling:
~
* Gastrointestinal symptoms: These are some of the “classic” — although not the most common — symptoms of celiac disease:
~
~ Abdominal pain and distension
~ Acid reflux
~ Bloating
~ Constipation
~ Diarrhea
~ Gas and flatulence
~ Greasy, foul-smelling, floating stools
~ Nausea
~ Vomiting
~ Weight loss or weight gain
~
* Nongastrointestinal symptoms: Interestingly, although gluten sensitivity and celiac disease affect the gut, most people’s symptoms are not gastrointestinal in nature. This partial list includes just some of the more than 250 symptoms not centered in the digestive tract.
~
~ Fatigue and weakness (due to iron-deficiency anemia)
~ Vitamin and/or mineral deficiencies
~ Headaches (including migraines)
~ Joint/bone pain
~ Depression, irritability, listlessness, and mood disorders
~ “Fuzzy brain” or an inability to concentrate
~ Infertility
~ Abnormal menstrual cycles
~ Dental enamel deficiencies and irregularities
~ Seizures
~ Clumsiness (ataxia)
~ Nerve damage (peripheral neuropathy)
~ Respiratory problems
~ Canker sores (apthus ulcers)
~ Lactose intolerance
~ Eczema/psoriasis
~ Rosacea (a skin disorder)
~ Acne
~ Hashimoto’s disease, Sjögren’s syndrome, lupus erythematosus, and other autoimmune disorders
~ Early onset osteoporosis
~ Hair loss (alopecia)
~ Bruising easily
~ Low blood sugar (hypoglycemia)
~ Muscle cramping
~ Nosebleeds
~ Swelling and inflammation
~ Night blindness

Why You Should Eliminate Wheat from Your Diet
http://www.kitchendaily.com/read/why-you-should-eliminate-wheat-your-diet?icid=maing-grid7|maing9|dl8|sec1_lnk2%26pLid%3D245778
~ Kitchen Daily … Why You Should Eliminate Wheat from Your Diet … Gluten, a protein composite of gliadin and glutenin found in wheat and grains, may be addictive. Perhaps this explains the uncontrollable cravings for carbs many of us experience. This news was hard for us to digest, but not nearly as hard as gluten is on our intestines.
~
Since the 1950s, when scientists began cross-breeding wheat to make it grow faster, we’ve seen a few issues arise. Wheat is not as healthy as it used to be. U.S. plant scientist, Norman Borlaug, who won the the Nobel Prize for his work in wheat hybridization may have introduced some compounds that aren’t exactly friendly to our bodies. In fact, there are proteins found in today’s wheat that scientists can’t trace back to the original plant.
~
What could this mean for you? Unfortunately, digestion issues along with a slew of potential diseases, such as celiac’s disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and IBS. These problems can pertain to anyone, not just to those with severe gluten reactions or celiac’s disease.
~
Wheat & Gluten Research: The Dark Side of Wheat
http://www.greenmedinfo.com/page/wheat-gluten-research
~ Green Med Info … Despite popular opinion wheat consumption may not be beneficial to health. These two published articles make a strong argument against perceiving wheat intolerance as simply a matter of allergy/genetic intolerance in a minority subset of the human population, but rather as a species-specific intolerance, applicable to all.

Parasites and Pollution = Sick

Posted in PARASITES, WAKE UP FYI tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 8:51 pm by PCOSLady

DR HULDA R. CLARK
~
Her natural cures and remedies, in many cases, eliminate the need for drugs and doctors.
~
This idealistic woman who had spent 30 years of her life doing private clinical research and treating patients found herself pitted against the deep, angry pockets of medical associations, pharmaceutical companies and government cronies…
… Who were all trying to silence her. (Read about this later in this post)
~
PCOS Lady:
This woman spent 30 years of her life to tell you the truths(s) on why you get sick and are sick! I feel everyone needs to know the factual truth(s)… I hope you gain a new knowledge on the medical industry and why certain things are not done, exposed, the red tape, the road blocks we encounter, etc…
~ I will keep adding to this post as i research her findings…
~ QUESTION your doctor(s)…
~ SYMPTOMS COUNT!!!!!
~
FACT:
According to the U.S. Centers for Disease control nearly 100 MILLION Americans are infected with internal parasites like pinworms, whipworms, and tapeworms just to name a few… many of which are passed from their pets to their owners.
~
Are Parasites Making YOU Sick?
~
* Do you suffer with a list of mysterious aches, pains and illnesses?
* Does your doctor brush off your concerns… or doesn’t seem to have answers?
* Are you taking prescription drugs for a condition… but see little benefit?
* Are you frustrated that your doctor treats the PAIN… instead of playing detective to eliminate the ROOT CAUSE of your ongoing discomfort?
* Has your doctor ever ONCE discussed parasites or toxins with you?
~
Because here’s the thing:
Just because modern medicine has decided to IGNORE the problem of parasites and environmental toxins doesn’t mean they’re not invading our bodies and making us sick.
~
Your body has been trying to rid itself of parasites and pollutants your entire life!
You’ve even seen the signs:
Your body makes stones… mucous secretions… toxic dumpsites. It uses swelling… inflammation… cysts… tumours… mystery pain… headaches… diarrhea… constipation… poor digestion… weight gain… water retention… eczema… psoriasis… warts… acne… insomnia… extreme fatigue… PMS… bad breath… unusual body odour… cramps… stomach pains… joint pain… and the list goes on!
~
At first, when you’re younger, these symptoms are a nuisance. You might just feel a bit ‘off.’ Maybe your doctor has even told you these things are ‘normal’ and ‘of little concern.’
~
But as time progresses, and your body has more and more trouble fighting off the invaders, you begin to feel really sick.
~
Your list of seemingly unconnected symptoms begin to snowball. And your health issues start to get serious. Really serious.
~
What has your body been trying to tell you?

Look At Some Of Dr. Clark’s Other Parasite Discoveries:
~
* Those sick with colds are ALWAYS polluted with mycotoxins (the extremely toxic substances made by food molds)!
* Everyone with cancer has the human intestinal fluke in their liver – but no one else does!
* Everyone with diabetes has the pancreatic fluke of cattle in their pancreas – but few others do.
* Everyone with environmental illness tested positive for Fasciola (sheep liver fluke) in their liver!

* Everyone with asthma tested positive for Ascaris in their lungs!
… And the list goes on and on.

Dr. Hulda Clark Uncovered A Startling Truth:
There Are Only 2 Real Health Problems:
That’s right, according to Dr. Clark, no matter how long and confusing your list of symptoms may be…
… From joint pain to chronic inflammation to irritable bowel syndrome or eczema…
~
Your issues of pain and illness can typically be traced back to 2 problems:
* Parasites and/or Pollution. *
~
And during her 30 years of clinical research and patient study, she concluded:
~
• If you can get rid of the parasites from your body…
• And if you can prevent them from re-invading by eliminating pollution and toxins from your environment…

~
… Then you can rid your body of disease and pain and restore health!
~
Sound crazy? Not convinced parasites could be at the root of your chronic pain issues?
I must tell you, I wasn’t a believer to start, either. Beyond discussions of hand washing to prevent colds and the spread of e-coli, when do we EVER talk about parasites?
(Outside of deworming our pets???)
~
But, in fact, Dr. Clark found that every person suffering with a ‘mysterious illness’ or ‘incurable pain’ was ALWAYS infected with some parasite or pollutant!
~
Including those suffering with joint pain, arthritis and inflammation!
~
In fact, she found that all her patients suffering with joint pain (in any form) were typically infected with as many as 4 specific types of worms!
~
And she found that exposure to three specific toxins as well as certain solvents in your home environment made you vulnerable to these parasites by lowering your body’s immunity and allowing the tiny larvae to infest and live within your muscles and joints…
… While opening the door for invasion by other parasites, bacteria and viruses, too!

~ Are you suffering from chronic pain or illness? It’s a sign of a constant ‘source’ in your environment or diet that needs to be removed because your body is constantly fighting these pollutants. If you’re not getting better, it’s a sign you need to eliminate the source!

Stop Being Held Hostage By Your Doctor
~
Dr. Clark said it best…
~
“Since the beginning of time, the sick have been held hostage by doctors and healers who surround themselves with mystery as they use herbs, chemicals and all manners of mysterious remedies to ‘cure’ and help the sick recover…
… And this mystery is used to justify the extraordinary costs of your diagnosis and healing.”

~
Dr. Clark was actually advised to patent her medical inventions.
She never did. Instead, she believed that her knowledge should be readily, freely available to whomever needed it.
She was on a mission to bring the world out of the dark ages of medicine and illness. And to learn the true causes of infection and disease.
She was keen to usher in a new age of disease-free living.
And so, to continue her legacy, I believe…

Dr. Clark Was Falsely And Unjustly Accused,
In My Opinion, Of Being A ‘Quack’
Dr. Clark was harassed.
Arrested.
(Jailed at the age of 71, and held without bail for more than 2 weeks!)
And then finally driven out of the country into Mexico, where she fled and continued to practice against all odds.
~
Why? Well, you can probably guess…
~
Her natural cures and remedies, in many cases, eliminate the need for drugs and doctors.
So this idealistic woman who had spent 30 years of her life doing private clinical research and treating patients found herself pitted against the deep, angry pockets of medical associations, pharmaceutical companies and government cronies…
… Who were all trying to silence her.
It wasn’t a fair fight.
~
And even now that Dr. Clark is gone (she died in September 2009), there is STILL an insidious public relations machine that continues to pump out slanderous information, painting her as a quack and fraud of monstrous proportions.

High Testosterone In Women Symptoms

Posted in RELATED: HORMONES tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 3:52 am by PCOSLady


PCOS Lady:

First time having my testosterone levels checked and ever being interested in them… They are high! Stress i know i am under daily in my current living environment!
~ I have all my test results from 2003… I do glance back at them at times…
~ A little known symptom is having hair on top of your toes…
~
A few more odd symptoms are stray dark hairs on your above lip, your chin, your breast and inner thighs…
~
Interesting to know the symptoms and what lowers testosterone…
~
Just read from a Dr Oz show women in later years are best to have testosterone levels of 50 – 80, which is that of a woman in her 30’s…
~
http://www.ehow.com/facts_4962570_causes-high-testosterone-women_.html
~
SYMPTOMS OF HIGH TESTOSTERONE IN WOMEN
~
High testosterone symptoms include hair loss, hirsutism (unwanted male-pattern hair growth), unexplained rapid weight gain, virilization, acne, aggressiveness, irritability and missed menstrual cycles. Decreased breast size and a deepening of the voice will occur along with a coarsening of the skin.
~
CAUSES: HORMONAL IMBALANCES
~
The main causes of high testosterone in females are hormonal imbalances that can happen at any age, and often sneak up gradually, with the 30s being the predominant time for things to get worse.
~
COMMON TESTOSTERONE INCREASING DISEASES
~
Adrenal gland disorders and ovarian problems, often caused by other hormonal imbalances, create an over-abundance of testosterone. The most common testosterone-increasing disease is polycystic ovarian syndrome. Diabetes can also lead to these endocrine upsets.
~
RARER DISORDERS THAT CAUSE HIGH TESTOSTERONE
~
Other disorders that cause high testosterone in women include acromegaly, adrenal neoplasm disorders, Conn’s syndrome, Cushing’s syndrome, dwarfism, gigantism or multiple endocrine neoplasm 1 and 2. An androgen-producing adrenal or ovarian tumor can lead to high levels of testosterone, as can congenital adrenal hyperplasia and thyroid disorders in general.

SOLUTIONS FOR HIGH TESTOSTERONE IN WOMEN
~

Testosterone is produced in the ovaries and adrenal glands of women. High testosterone levels in women tend to cause a variety of issues. Elevated levels of this male synonymous hormone can cause excessive facial hair, increased muscle mass, waistline body fat and adult onset acne. The most common cause of this testosterone increase in women is Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. This disorder causes multiple cysts like follicles to accumulate in the ovaries. The ovary begins to produce and secrete high levels of testosterone.
~
LIFESTYLE CHANGES
~
Implementing changes to your lifestyle can effectively reduce high testosterone levels. Low risk changes include reducing stress levels and following a healthy eating regimen. Women with testosterone imbalances have successfully lost weight through following a low carbohydrate/diabetic eating plan. Adding fruit, salad, fish, poultry and nuts to your diet can help to reduce testosterone levels. Consuming fried, sugary and oily foods contribute to testosterone increases and weight gain. Practicing stress reduction techniques, like yoga and meditation, can be extremely beneficial. Combining these practices with regular exercise and a balanced diet will help to improve your overall quality of health.
~
NATURAL REMEDIES
~
Alternative medicine is an effective way to treat elevated testosterone levels safely and naturally. This approach involves little to no risk, with various therapies utilized for treatment. Herbal remedies effectively treat testosterone imbalances at its source. These options are easy to follow, and cost effective. Two types used for treatment are Phytoestrogenic and Non estrogenic herbs. Phytoestrogenic herbs (ex: black cohosh) contain plant manufactured estrogen. They help to alleviate imbalances through introducing additional hormones within the body. Non estrogenic herbs (ex: macafem) do not contain any estrogen properties. They stimulate natural hormonal production by nourishing endocrine and pituitary glands. They balance testosterone naturally by stimulating the body to produce its own hormones.

See a Doctor “IF” … 20+ yr olds or?

Posted in PCOS SYMPTOMS tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 8:59 pm by PCOSLady

THANK YOU PCOSA FOR THE HEALTH BYTE...


~
Here is this week’s Health Byte from the PCOSA … 5/1/04
~
When to See a Doctor About PCOS From The Age of 20 Onwards
~
Polycystic ovary syndrome is a long-term condition that can gradually affect females in different age groups from puberty right through to much later in life.
~
Symptoms of PCOS are often mistaken for another medical problem, which can make it difficult to know when to see your doctor. But early diagnosis and treatment of PCOS may help prevent serious related health complications such as pre- and type 2 diabetes and heart disease as well as reproductive and metabolic problems.
~
Taking a wait-and-see approach, often called watchful waiting, is not appropriate when PCOS is suspected.
~
If you are between 20 and 40 years old, consult your doctor if you have:
~
~ Menstrual cycles that are consistently less than 21 days apart or more than 35 days apart.
~ Regular menstrual cycles but you have been trying unsuccessfully to become pregnant for more than 12 months.
~ Vaginal bleeding that lasts more than 8 days. Watch out for large clots or excessive spotting.
~ Pelvic pain that lasts for more than 4 weeks.
~ Excessive hair growth or hair growing on the chest, back, belly or face. This PCOS-linked condition is known as hirsutism.
~ Any symptoms of diabetes, such as increased thirst and frequent urination (especially at night), unexplained increase in appetite, unexplained weight loss, fatigue, blurred vision or tingling or numbness in your hands or feet.
~ Skin problems such as acne, oily skin, dandruff, skin tags in the armpits or neck area, or dark skin patches (acanthosis nigricans) in skin folds or on the neck, groin or underarms.
~ Depression or mood swings. Many women have emotional problems related to the many physical symptoms of PCOS, such as excess hair, obesity or infertility.
~ Excess weight gain or upper body obesity (more abdominal fat than hip fat). This is also known as android obesity and is related to increased male hormone (testosterone) levels.
~
If you are older than 40, consult your doctor if you experience these additional symptoms which can be linked to PCOS :
~
~ Signs of heart disease, such as chest pain or pressure, shortness of breath, unusual levels of fatigue or high blood pressure (hypertension)
~
Who To See
~
Health professionals who can diagnose and treat PCOS may include:

~
~ Endocrinologists (pediatric or medical)
~ Reproductive endocrinologists
~ Gynecologists
~ Obstetricians
~ Family practice physicians
~ Nurse practitioners
~ Physician assistants
~ Internists
~ Registered dietitians

PCOS Lady:
I am happy to post this byte and to see the added info with listed symptoms… Mentioning the added medical people and dietitians that can diagnose PCOS is wonderful!
~
When you see your doctor, ask to be tested for Celiac Disease as well, especially if stool is loose for days or always… My DO said that is an automatic dx for Celiac…

ACNE: Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS)

Posted in ACNE (mild to severe) tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 6:27 pm by PCOSLady

HS ACNE VARIATION....


~
ACNE (severe)
Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS)

PCOS Lady
HS effects both men and women it seems… I have experienced minor bouts of this through my life… Luckily they went away… Acne, we all experience it, PCOS women usually have it start on the face, then it moves to our shoulders, etc… We get the few on our breasts and groin areas… Some women try treating acne for years with little success… You may have HS… I suggest keeping this info on hand for your doctor…
~ This can be caused by “bad” parasites as well. Best to look at the symptoms under PARASITES…
~ The Cure Zone covered HS exceptionally well!
~
What is hidradenitis suppurativa?
~
Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS), also known as ‘Acne Inversa’, is a physically, psychologically, and socially disabling disease affecting inverse areas of the body (those places where there is skin-to-skin contact – armpits, groin, breasts, etc.), and where apocrine glands and hair follicles are found. It is non-contagious and recurrent; typically manifesting as a progression from single boil-like, pus-filled abscesses, or hard sebaceous lumps, to painful, deep-seated, often inflamed clusters of lesions with chronic seepage (suppuration — hence the name) involving significant scarring.
~
Abscesses may be as large as baseballs in some people, are extremely painful to the touch and may persist for years with occasional to frequent periods of inflammation, culminating in drainage, often leaving open wounds that will not heal. These “flare-ups” are often triggered by stress, hormonal changes, or humid heat. Drainage of the lumps provides some relief from severe, often debilitating, pressure pain; however, pain occurs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for HS sufferers during flare-ups, and is difficult to manage.
~
Persistent lesions may lead to the formation of sinus tracts, or tunnels connecting the abscesses under the skin. At this stage, complete healing is usually not possible, and progression of the disease in the area is inevitable. Occurrences of bacterial infections and cellulites (deep tissue inflammation) are likely at these sites.
~
Because of the drainage which may have a foul odor, fever and fatigue caused by acute inflammation and the physical restrictions caused by pain and skin deformation, people often cannot work, drive, exercise or even perform day-to-day tasks, and are ashamed to go out in public. HS sufferers may go through severe bouts of depression, avoid public and inter-personal contact, become sedentary and often overweight.
~
HS typically goes undiagnosed for years because patients are ashamed to speak with anyone. When they do see a doctor, the disease is frequently misdiagnosed. Only relatively few physicians are able to recognize it and even when they do, suggested treatments are often ineffective, temporary and sometimes even harmful. There is no known cure nor any consistently effective treatment; what works for one person may not work for another. In advanced, chronic cases, surgery is often the choice, but recurrences of HS are not uncommon.
~
The mechanisms of the disease are described in this article.
from The Cure Zone site…
~
Historically, HS has been considered a rare disorder, because it is difficult to accurately estimate the number of HS victims; they conceal their condition, even from friends and close relatives. Estimates, however, indicate at least 1 million – potentially up to 12 million – Hidradenitis Suppurativa sufferers in the United States alone!
~
What’s in a name…
~
HS was first described in 1839 and has since been called many names. We still cannot agree on what to call it. Germans prefer Akne Inversa, the French still like to use Verneuil’s, which we’ll admit, sounds much better than Hidradenitis Suppurativa (‘oozing inflamed sweat glands’). All are equally correct and equally wrong. All but names for symptoms of an underlying disease we don’t yet know.
~
…”correct” names for this disease:

Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS)
alt: Hidradenitis Supportiva
Acne Inversa (AI)
Apocrine Acne
Acne conglobata
Apocrinitis

~ Folliculitis

~ Crohns and other inflammatory auto-immune conditions
~ Anemia
~ Hyperhydrosis / hyperhidrosis
~ Depression
~ Acne Vulgaris / Cystic / Conglobata
~ Pilonidal cysts
~
Stages of the Disease
~
Hidradenitis typically develops slowly over time. Since there are no 100% successful treatments it will run its course. Development differs, however, from individual to individual. With some, the disease may stagnate and never develop past a mild stage, with others, it may escalate and become a debilitating disease. We do not know why.
~
This is how HS may progress:
~
~ Stage I: Solitary or multiple isolated abscess formation without scarring or sinus tracts;
~ Stage II: Recurrent abscesses, single or multiple widely separated lesions, with beginning sinus tract formation (“tunneling”) and cicatrisation (formation of scar tissue);
~ Stage III: Diffuse or broad involvement across a regional area with multiple interconnected sinus tracts, significant cicatrisation and persistent abscesses.
