I’m so happy Dr Humiston mentions all these symptoms are not normal for anyone! The medical world has drilled in us it is normal, we are to accept all of it, etc…
~
The medical world wants us to accept “IT” as normal…
~
I say NO! I want everyone to realize you can get healthy and reverse many symptoms and a lot of damage once you rid and correct the problem(s) in YOU!

CANDIDA (YEAST) SYMPTOMS
~
By Dr John E. Humiston, MD
Here is a list of symptoms and conditions that commonly occur in people with Candida overgrowth. Most all of these same symptoms typically improve or disappear with effective treatment for Candida.
~
Some of the symptoms listed may sound “normal,” because the Candida problem is so common in the modern world. Some are led to say, when they review this list, “Doesn’t that describe everybody?” It must be emphasized that none of these symptoms are part of normal health. When too many people around us are ill, strange symptoms may become common, but that does not make them normal. Many of the things listed — such as asthma, diabetes, epidemic obesity, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, ADD/ADHD, autism, panic attacks and others — were virtually non-existent (or at least much less common) before the 1970s. They became much too common as a consequence of various factors, including: widespread overuse of antibiotics starting in the 1950s; increased availability of chlorinated swimming pools; much increased use of pesticides, hormones and antibiotics in the food supply; the advent of the birth control pill; and the addition since the 1990s of barley malt into nearly every baked food (cereals, crackers, cookies) and of high-fructose corn syrup as a sweetener in beverages.

~
A person with Candida overgrowth may have only 2-3 of these symptoms, or may identify with many.
O
MENTAL ~ EMOTIONAL ~ NERVOUS SYSTEM:
~ Headaches and migraine headaches
~ Depression
~ Sleep problems — difficulty falling asleep, or waking up in the middle of the night with a mind that won’t calm down (typically between 1 and 3 am)
~ Irritability and confusion
~ Poor memory
~ Anxiety attacks, panic attacks
~ Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
~ Heart beating too fast or irregularly
~ Sexual problems — impotence or lack of desire, or excessive sexuality
~ Attention deficit, hyperactivity (ADD/ADHD)
~ Dizziness
~ Numbness
~ Feeling of floating or not quite being in your body
~ Indecisiveness, difficulty organizing and cleaning messy areas
O
DIGESTIVE SYSTEM:
~ Cravings for sugar, chocolate, milk, cheese, vinegar, pickles, alcohol, bread, nuts or fruit
~ “Metabolic syndrome” which includes the following: large abdomen (“beer belly”), adult-onset diabetes, high cholesterol or triglycerides, high blood pressure
~ “Beer belly,” also called truncal obesity — excess weight centered around the abdomen
~ Acid reflux/GERD (heartburn)
~ Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar)
~ Bloating, flatulence or abdominal pain
~ Rectal itching
~ Constipation and/or diarrhea
~ Excessively thin or anorexic/bulimic
O
SKIN ~ EYES ~ HAIR:
~ Skin and nail fungal infections (current or past), including: athlete’s foot, vaginal yeast infections, fungal toenails, ringworm, jock itch, tinea versicolor or itchy eyelids
~ Skin problems like eczema, rashes, psoriasis
~ Prematurely graying hair
~ Pupils always dilated
~ Unusually green eyes, or eye color has turned greenish
O
IMMUNE DISORDERS:
~ Asthma and allergies
~ Recurring infections — colds, ears, bladder, sinus
~ Autoimmune disease (lupus, hypothyroidism, arthritis, others)
~ Penicillin allergy
O
WHOLE BODY:
~ Fatigue
~ Muscle or joint pain, fibromyalgia
~ Cold feet, cold hands, sometimes cold nose
~ Sweating, especially at night
~ Uncomfortable at any temperature
O
WOMEN’s HEALTH ISSUES:
~ Premenstrual syndrome (PMS)
~ Endometriosis (chronic pelvic pain)
~ Infertility (female), some miscarriages, toxemia of pregnancy (preeclampsia)
O
SYMPTOMS SEEN PARTICULARLY IN CHILDREN ~ up to about 8 years old:
~ Early allergy to foods like milk
~ Infections as a baby
~ Child had or has frequent ear infections, tonsillitis, strep throat or bladder infections, especially if these infections were treated with antibiotics
~ Cravings for milk, cheese, yogurt, macaroni and cheese, or peanut butter
~ Asthma
~ “Drama king” or “drama queen” — complains quite vocally and often
~ Poor sleep patterns — difficulty going to sleep, sleeps too lightly or has frequent nightmares, and wakes up too early (or sometimes too late)
~ Too thin or overweight
~ Attention deficit with or without hyperactivity (ADD/ADHD)
~ Aggressive, poor social interactions, can’t stop moving, frequent fights or arguments, frequent crying
~ Autism
~ Pale complexion, dark circles under the eyes
O
Two points should be understood with regard to the above list of signs and symptoms of Candida overgrowth. First, while all of the symptoms listed are definitely seen in Candida patients and evidence indicates Candida causes or strongly contributes to the development of these problems, there are other contributing factors that can also bring about some of these problems (such as mercury or other metal toxicity, consistent excess electromagnetic field exposure, underlying viral infections, petrochemical exposure, etc.). Second, treatment for Candida alone will usually bring about significant improvement in these symptoms, but will not be adequate in all cases to restore health. Often additional treatments aimed at improving liver, adrenal or thyroid function, or correcting immune and allergic problems, are necessary to regain health.

Autism – Dietary Treatments (2013 update)
Posted on April 2, 2013

[image: autismrainbow] In 2002 I attended my first DAN! (Defeat Autism Now!) conference. Here in my hometown of Portland, Oregon, I sat in the back of a room filled with 1000 parents and about 100 physicians and providers, and I had tears rolling down my face as I realized we had poisoned a generation. My own children have been affected, to various degrees, by my own ignorance, and our unique genetic vulnerability. As parents we want the best for our children. We look to our society and governmental agencies and academies to protect us by having appropriate regulations. I am sad to report that the very institutions that you would think are there to protect us from environmental toxins and industry practices that would harm our children, are either turning a blind eye, or worse yet, are
infiltrated with industry funded experts who can tilt the agenda and distort the facts.
~
Autism is just the tip of the iceberg. For every autistic child there are hundreds with ADD, ADHD, anxiety, depression, developmental delays, hyper-sensitivities etc., all now epidemic and “unexplained”. The explanation is toxins, toxins, and more toxins. We are adding toxins to those who are genetically vulnerable (we all are vulnerable but some of us more than others). The toxins at the top of the list are Aspartame, tobacco, heavy metals, pesticides, BPA, (bisphenol found in polycarbonate plastics and epoxy resins). The topic of this blog is not the causes but what you can do nutritionally once you are faced with autism or any neurological challenge.
~
The summary linked below outlines many areas that deserve a try if your child is suffering:
http://autism. asu.edu/Docs/ 2013/Summary_ of_Treatments_ for_Autism- 2013.pdf
~
*The keys in this summary are:*
~
1. *Eat healthy* (organic, no GMO, no plastics, no aspartame).
2. *Test for food sensitivities* and avoid foods your child is sensitive to (usually at least gluten and dairy).
3. Certain *vitamins* and nutrients are key. Everyone in North America needs more *Vitamin D*. See the list they provide for dietary requirements and aim for the upper limit.
4. *Omega-3* fish oil is beneficial.
5. *Enzymes* to help with digestion can be helpful.
6. *Carnitine* is a vitamin that help get energy into the cell. Most children can take 125-250 mg twice a day. Liquid forms may need a prescription.
7. *Melatonin* can help with the immune system, should generally be given before bed, and can help with sleep. Dosage is 1/2 to 3 mg before bed.
8. *Thyroid* function should be assessed. Low thyroid function is very detrimental to brain development and energy. Have them check *TSH, free T3 and free T4*.
~
Parents, it is absolutely up to you to keep good notes and records of what you try, when, and what you feel happened. As a physician who helps many families, I cannot possibly remember what I have tried on each child. You should keep pushing me, if I’m your doctor, or your physician if I am not, and say “this is what I have tried, this is what helped, what else can we try?”

Blessings, Dr. Paul

Magnesium ~ Epsom Salts

MAGNESIUM ~ EPSOM SALTS

~ EHow …
Increase your magnesium levels in your body by soaking in Epsom salt bath water three times weekly. While it is extremely difficult to get enough magnesium in our systems through our diets, it is readily absorbs into our systems through our skin. Magnesium is needed by our bodies for many functions; however, a doctor should be consulted prior to extensive use, particularly for those with kidney problems. Magnesium works to activate many other enzymes our body needs.
~
Magnesium is useful in the treatment of asthma, COPD, fibromyalgia, ADD, cardiovascular disease, hypertension, diabetes, angina, cardiac arrhythmia, congestive heart failure, fatigue, kidney stones, migraine and tension headaches, complications due to pregnancy and premenstrual syndrome. Our bodies cannot properly use serotonin without the assistance of magnesium. Serotonin is a natural chemical created within the brain responsible for feelings of well being and relaxation. So maybe there is something to that saying “Calgon take me away”?

Importance of Magnesium is Far Greater than Previously Imagined
http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2012/12/17/magnesium-benefits.aspx?e_cid=20121217_DNL_art_1
~ Dr Mercola … Importance of Magnesium is Far Greater than Previously Imagined… A number of studies have previously shown magnesium can benefit your blood pressure and help prevent sudden cardiac arrest, heart attack, and stroke. But its role in human health appears to be far more complex than previously thought, and—like vitamin D—its benefits may be more far-reaching than we’ve imagined. GreenMedInfo.com‘s database project has indexed over 100 health benefits of magnesium so far, including therapeutic benefits for: Fibromyalgia, Cardiovascular disease, Atrial fibrillation, Migraine, Type 2 diabetes, Aging, Premenstrual syndrome, Mortality… As you age: Age — older adults are more likely to be magnesium deficient because absorption decreases with age and the elderly are more likely to take medications that can interfere with absorption… Diabetes, especially if it’s poorly controlled, leading increased magnesium loss in urine…
