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.

Yeast vs Medical World

PCOS Lady:
Immense “thank you” to Dr John E. Humiston, MD for explaining how doctors are trained and why they do not know much about numerous medical issues…
~ ~ ~
http://candidamd.com/candida/doctors.html

Candida and the Medical Profession

Why don’t all doctors know about Candida? Let me address this question from my own personal professional experience. In my training in medical school and then in family practice, we were taught that Candida can become widespread and damaging only in those patients who are severely compromised, such as terminal cancer, liver transplant or AIDS patients. This simply isn’t true. Many clinicians with experience in Candida treatment estimate that the majority of people in industrialized countries suffer from excess yeast.

~
What is preventing Candida from being recognized? Here are some factors:
The symptoms of Candida overgrowth develop slowly as a changing picture over years, so causes and effects are not obvious if one is not trained to look for them. In medicine, we are too often guilty of seeking oversimplified explanations for diseases (for example, asthma is treated as if it were just an inflammatory disease, depression is treated as if it were just a disorder in neurotransmitters, allergy is treated as if it were simply a predisposed genetic condition), rather than looking deeper for the overall disorder in the body that is causing the disease. This oversimplified approach to disease does not help the physician understand a disease like Candida overgrowth, which has subtle symptoms in multiple organ systems that worsen very gradually. To the physician who is unfamiliar with Candida, its broad array of symptoms will seem like a group of totally unrelated problems.

~
Candida is so common that it’s likely your own doctor has it. It’s hard to pin down what’s wrong with your patients when you yourself may be suffering with similar things but can’t figure out what the cause is. Also, it’s harder to distinguish an illness as truly abnormal when so many people have it and the illness doesn’t have any single definite identifying symptom.

~
There are no reliable lab tests to diagnose Candida. Because yeast invade tissues of the body and actually form branches among and around cells (rather than floating around loosely in the blood or other areas), culture tests, tissue collections and blood or urine tests are not accurate enough to gauge the extent of disease Candida may be causing. However, because the symptoms and signs of Candida are predictable, one can fairly accurately determine if a person has Candida overgrowth by using the lists of tell-tale risk factors and symptoms listed above. http://candidamd.com/candida/symptoms.html …. Medical professionals use this same type of approach — called “clinical diagnosis” — to diagnosis illnesses such as migraine headaches, Parkinson’s disease, depression and many other illnesses for which there is no single definitive lab test.

~
Candida is very hard to kill, and almost none of the treatments work well. This is equally true for prescription medicines, over-the-counter remedies and natural medicines. Because most clinicians do not know an effective treatment, there is little enthusiasm about promoting knowledge of Candida. This problem is compounded by the fact that our medical culture has become very skewed towards prescription drug treatment, rather than towards restoring normal physiology. There is even an incorrect notion among many doctors and patients that the only really effective medications for any illness are prescription medications. The reality is that there are certain medicinal molecules which are found in nature (usually in plants) that can’t be synthesized or successfully altered in a laboratory. For certain illnesses, these natural compounds work better than any current prescription medicines.

~
Similar to the point just made, modern medical practice has become focused on symptom treatment, rather than correction of underlying abnormalities. One can treat the symptoms of Candida forever, but major improvement never comes until the fungus is killed.

~
Within the medical profession, many doctors fear doing something different from what other doctors do. And treating Candida is clearly different. This fear stifles innovation, the drive to try something new in the face of a significant problem that is not being solved with current methods.
~
There is a lack of true progress in medical knowledge in general, making it more difficult for doctors to find relevant information on Candida. The large volume of published studies appearing every month in medical journals gives the impression that important medical discoveries are indeed occurring. In actuality, however, most of those studies are statistical comparisons of the action of patented synthetic drugs, sponsored by hopeful drug manufacturers. The results of these studies are habitually unimpressive. Very little is published that is true scientific medical progress. Further, major medical studies are published in journals which usually carry large advertisements from drug manufacturers for which the journal publishers have collected large sums of money. This puts the journal editors in a position where they are clearly no longer able to be objective in what they choose to publish (for example, just one study showing red yeast rice to be nearly as effective in lowering cholesterol as the much more expensive and side effect-laden statins would decimate the advertising income of a major medical journal).

~
Treating Candida has to do with diet problems and diet change, and some people mistakenly feel that changing their way of eating would be too hard or that they would miss certain foods too much. (This sentiment is only expressed by people who are thinking about doing a Candida program, or by those who have tried an ineffective program. People who have done the Candida program presented here almost never feel that way.)

Yeast~Candida~Candidiasis Symptoms

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

THE AMERICAN PARASITE

PCOS Lady:
Yeast we know is in food, we did know yeast was hidden in foods nor that antibiotics promote the growth of yeast…

Try a
~ Yeast cleanse
~ Eating more natural foods
~ Adding a probiotic daily

The video explains everything to you…
~ YOU will see where your good money is being wasted!
~ YOU will realize you are helping make yourself sick, etc…. Yes, government and food industry created!

Antibiotics do leave behind more yeast to grow inside you!
Expired breads, cakes, rolls, etc… has live yeast that will grow in you as well…

There are a few self tests you need to do at home to find out if you suffer from yeast overgrowth… The link is below for you…

* Yeast feeds on refined sugars, preservatives, artificial sweetners *
~ Your cravings start up and increase to feed the yeast beast in your gut!

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.

MERCURY POISONING SYMPTOMS
~ ~ ~
http://www.life123.com/health/first-aid/food-poisoning/mercury-poisoning-symptoms.shtml
~
By: Aysha Schurman
Mercury poisoning symptoms are rather hard to ignore. The poison will affect the entire body, not just a single area. The exact symptoms can change from person to person, but left untreated, severe mercury poisoning can be deadly.
~
What Is Mercury?
Mercury is a naturally occurring metal that exists all around us. It can be highly dangerous in large quantities and poisonous to most living organisms. Mercury can be found in the air, water and soil. It is silver colored, but odorless and tasteless. There are three forms of mercury that can cause poisoning: elemental, inorganic and organic.
~
Mercury Poisoning Symptoms
In large quantities, mercury is deadly. It not only causes many severe symptoms, it can compromise the immune system. So in addition to symptoms from the poisoning, you can contract other diseases and other symptoms due to the mercury poisoning. This sometimes makes mercury poisoning hard to identify and treat.
What mercury poisoning symptoms you present can depend entirely on what type of mercury you were exposed to. Symptoms can range from loss of teeth, hives or fever to rashes, skin lesions or a metallic taste.
~
Psychological disturbances: ~ mood swings ~ anxiety ~ anger ~ depression ~ memory loss ~ irritability
Neurological disturbances: ~ dizziness ~ twitching ~ headaches ~ tremors
Gastrointestinal disturbances: ~ diarrhea ~ stomach cramps ~ other gastrointestinal problems
Respiratory disturbances: ~ emphysema ~ shallow breathing ~ a constant cough
Cardiovascular disturbances: ~ chest pains ~ weak pulse ~ an irregular heartbeat
Basic sense disturbances: ~ impaired vision ~ speech ~ hearing ~ coordination
Oral disturbances: ~ loss of teeth ~ gum discoloration ~ gum bleeding ~ a metallic taste
~
Mercury Poisoning Treatment
The exact treatment needed for mercury poisoning depends on the type of mercury you are exposed to. At the very least you will need to visit your doctor if you suspect you have mercury poisoning. It’s likely you will be admitted to the hospital for several different treatments and medications if the mercury poisoning is anything other than very minor.

QUOTES:
“Mercury poisoning is impaired oxidation. It’s like having an invisible cord around your neck that’s strangling you, but you can’t feel that the cord is there. (The strangulations) is biochemical, but the principal is the same: mercury reduces the amount of oxygen that you get.”
Dr. Alfred Zamm, M.D., F.A.C.P. “…
~
“Slow healing” is in part a result of zinc deficiency. Mercury interferes with zinc metabolism.”
“Chronic fatigue” is a result of insufficient oxygen to the cells. Mercury interferes with the ability of hemoglobin to transport oxygen” and “…..ringing in the ears” is related to manganese deficiency. Mercury interferes with manganese metabolism.”
It’s All In Your Head, by Hal A. Huggins, DDS
~
“Mercury is associated with 258 different symptoms and copper with over 100. Almost all my patients who had their mercury-based fillings removed show moderate to dramatic improvement in their health in usually less than one month.”
Dr. David J. Nickel, O.M.D., L.Ac of Santa Monica California (from Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia & Environmental Illness, by Burton Goldberg.
~
“Research has demonstrated that the body’s tissues – especially in the brain, kidneys, jaw, lungs, gastrointestinal tract, and liver -absorb and store mercury.”
Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia & Environmental Illness, by Burton Goldberg
~
“After he underwent a root canal at the age of 15, Earl suffered severe fatigue and anxiety. At 28, he had a nervous breakdown. At the age of 32, suffering from fatigue, anger, anxiety, back problems, low blood sugar, nervousness, ringing in his ears, concentration loss, and prematurely graying hair, he consulted acupuncturist. Dr. David J. Nickel, O.M.D., L.Ac. of Santa Monica, California performed a mercury vapor analysis on Earl’s teeth and found that the level of toxic fumes from Earl’s six mercury amalgam fillings was 42 times higher than the Environmental Protection Agency’s maximum allowable limit.
He was put on supplements and there was significant improvement in his metabolic rate and blood sugar levels, he had all six mercury amalgams and his root canal tooth removed. Earl said, “I don’t remember when I have ever felt so good.”

Mercury poisoning: Are you affected?
~
FACTS:
Mercury amalgams (silver fillings)
* Most mercury amalgams are composed of approximately 50% mercury, 35% silver and 15% tin, copper and/or zinc. * Mercury is the major ingredient amounting to about one-half gram per amalgam. In the words of Professor Boyd Haley of the University of Kentucky, that is a “colossal” amount of mercury in scientific terms—as much, in fact, as is in a thermometer. A teenager with six fillings has six mercury thermometers worth of mercury in his or her mouth.
~
It should be noted that the more copper present in the amalgam, the more mercury vapor is released proportionally.
• Mercury atoms are continually released into the mouth with 80% absorbed by the lungs.
• Each and every amalgam daily releases on the order of 10 micrograms of mercury into the body (i.e. 3,000,000,000,000,000 mercury atoms per day).
• More than 2/3 of the excretable mercury in humans is derived from amalgams.
• People exposed to mercury on a sustained basis are at risk of lowered fertility.
• Mercury crosses the maternal placenta into the tissue of a developing fetus.
• Mercury immediately and continually challenges kidney function.
• Mercury can enhance the prevalence of multiple antibiotic resistant intestinal bacteria.
• Dentists, who collectively use 300 metric tons of mercury in amalgams each year and who often have two to five times the typical concentration of mercury in their urine, experience subtle neural and behavioral anomalies. 2,3
~
Vaccines
A very controversial source of mercury is vaccines, second only to mercury amalgams in terms of primary sources of mercury toxicity. Thimerosal (49.6% ethyl mercury) has been used as a preservative and adjuvant in most vaccines since 1931. After the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) went into effect in October 1,1988, citizens who were injured by a vaccine or vaccines could not sue the manufacturer directly but had to first file a claim with VICP.
~
