PCOS Lady:
A true and heart felt scenario between friends where the author uses his natural healing knowledge to save his close friend… Western medicine has its place but the scenario will prove to you where it fails!
I hope all of you learn a lasting lesson about the medical world and the natural/holistic world!

i am exhausted. i got 5 hours sleep in 72 even before i got here. i must get the first part of this story told before it gets lost.

the first two days were a nightmare. i came the minute i got word that my friend bill was in trouble. the doctors were saying that he would not leave the hospital(alive). his daughter told me in her email that he had requested me and that it was bad. i knew that if he was asking for me, it must have been. bill is closer to me than a brother in many ways. it is interesting that i posted the song by the great bessie griffin that i did a few days earlier, because in many ways he is my mother and my father, my sister and my brother, my mentor and my best friend.

back to the first two days. i observed while the very best in modern medicine fumbled and bumbled their way in the dark. i have never seen a more ignorant and narrowminded profession in my life. robert o becker said it best in his classic work “the body electric” when he said, “medical biology is afflicted with a kind of tunnel vision.” boy is it ever.

i watched as they tried to treat an illness that they knew had internal causes by using external mechanisms. the standard treatment for copd is to leave the patient to their own devices until they can no longer breathe on their own and then put them on a machine to breath for them. once this occurs, they may or may not ever get off the machines until they expire. apparently there are many in this country who are in facilities living on a respirator, a prison that i cannot imagine is preferable to death. my friend feels the same way.

once they got his gasses turned around, they took him off the inubator and onto a mask called a c-pap. this machine assists in the breathing and introduces higher than normal levels of oxygen at the same time. usually the idea is not so much oxygenating the blood, but the problem is the release of co2. as the co2 builds up in the blood, this creates an acidifying effect. as the pH goes lower, less and less co2 can be released. the acid pH effects the ease with which the gradient of oxygen can displace the co2. the patient snowballs and soon can no longer stop the rise of co2 in the blood which results in expiration. the person is chemically drowning.

the mechanical means by which they try to treat this is no different than sticking a plug in ones butt to stop diarrhea. sooner of later, something has to give.

i kept listening intently as the high paid and barely available doctor would come in and explain what was going on and never once offer a solution that would correct the problem, even when asked. the co2 rising, the diaphram muscle being exhausted and unable to work as hard, the lungs less elastic than before – all the while all of these things got worse. just let the machine do it.

bill is a patient man. he went with the flow and accepted his fate as things went along. however, he was not going to be confined to a machine with no way to communicate. as he tried to move away from this confinement, the doctor got more doom and gloom and began to talk of dying.

when i first got there, they got the tube out of him and put the mask on. no longer being fed by a tube into his stomach, he wanted to eat. i was aghast at the meal they sent him. it was death on four wheels. i watched him eat mashed potatoes and turkey and gravey and roll with 2% milk and a small salad. he seemed to be feeling better and the doctor was in general agreement with his quest to go home. she said he might not make it out of the hospital once he tried to move about. he did seem to get worse after his meal. i left that evening with him in good spirits and doing fairly well. the next morning he was in crises again.

the next day went the same way. the more he was on the c-pap, the better his gasses got and he was able to take the mask off and eat again that evening. again, it was the biggest acid forming meal i had ever seen, and again he went downhill through the night. the next morning everyone was summoned in and he was moved to a private room where as many as wanted could visit. his wife and he signed a DNR that morning just to get them to take him out of CCU. they were no longer drawing blood gasses. he was on his own. we were all told he would not make it through the day. medical science was more than willing to stand by and watch this man die without lifting a finger. well, i wasnt.

late yesterday i had discussed with bill what i saw based upon the information the doctor had given us. i systematically went throught he list of all the difficulties he was having and suggested a treatment for each. magnesium peroxide for his diaphram to relax the muscle to it could rest when not working and get oxygen closer to this starved muscle. cayenne to help normalize the blood. vitamin C for the high oxygen levels, both as an antioxidant and as a detoxifier of the lungs. iodine for its oxidizing effects where oxygen had not been able to get and as a mucolytic and antifungal. amazingly, iodine also works as an antioxidant as well and helps balance pH. oregano oil to help clear the lungs and address any parasites that may be present. and the air restore lobelia and mullien tincture from MH. he said to go ahead and get these things.

but this morning he was at deaths door according to his doctor and we all just rushed over. and got him moved into his private room to die. they only expect people to leave this area on a gurney to the morgue.

like a fool i did not bring anything with me. logistics has been tough but we managed to get out of there while they prepared to take him out of CCU. i rushed back to the house and got the air restore, the iodine, the oregano oil, and picked up a cheap ass 40Khu cayenne at the grocery store. a better selection would have to follow later.

when i got back he was in his new room. i told bill if we could turn this pH thing around we could get him out of the hospital and go to work on the rest and on to the healing stage which would include even more things to try. i gave him a capsule of the cayenne and a capsule with one drop of oregano oil in it. in some orange juice, i gave him four drops of wilsons iodine solution, four drops of magnascent iodine and two dropperfulls of air restore.

the turn around was almost immediate. he kept his mask off longer, gained strength and coordination, his voice got stronger, he was more animated, he laughed a lot, and some kind of cloudy yucky substance began to flow out of his urinary cathater. this was an added bonus for me to see. unfortunately the DNR arrangements meant there were no more blood gasses drawn for testing so i dont know what his co2 was doing. but i had a good guess.

you see, i had told him earlier that he had an infection. the doctor was saying there was no infection to fight and he was already being given prohylaxic antibiotics. i knew he had an infection. i figured it was candida or a mycoplasm or both, both of which were in his lungs.

then i told him there was no way he could eat that crap again and expect to live. we planned his evening meal and had it cooked at home by his son who brought it over. it was salad with olive oil and vinegar, whitefish and green beans. orange juice to drink. not perfect but not that other crap. at the meal, he recieved two cayenne, two drops of oregano oil, four more drops of iodine, two dropperfuls of magnascent and four dopperfulls of air restore.

by the time i left tonight he was still improving, still excreting a nasty cloud from his cathater, and having his oxygen levels adjusted down by a respiratory specialist. he is coming home tomorrow, lord willing, and i see nothing but improvement for him once we finish shopping at the health food store.

i fully intend to see this through and if he wants, i think he can be functioning at a level above what he was at even six months ago. he said he had about six more months of work on his book. i think he can have that and more if he wants.

i dont want to get too excited, but i did have one other interesting interchange with his doctor in passing. i asked her if she was surprised(as if i couldnt tell), and she said yes. you dont tell family to gather for a death from as far away as louisiana and have the patient walk out of the hospital the next day. it just aint possible. or is it?

Fungal Arthritis

Posted in FUNGAL tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 6:48 pm by PCOSLady

PCOS Lady:
Arthritis, many of you have it! Here is a fungal one you should look at and possibly ask your doctor to consider testing you for it!
So often we accept our symptoms as being due to aging, body changing, hereditary things, etc…
Fact is as we age we are experiencing foreign micro organisms (fungus, bacteria, “bad” parasites, yeast, etc…) invading us… Over the years they are showing signs they are in us!
What are Fungal infections?
Fungal infections are caused by microscopic plants (fungi) that can live on the skin. They can live on the dead tissues of the hair, nails, and outer skin layers.
Fungal Arthritis
Fungal arthritis is infection of a joint by a fungus.
Fungal arthritis, also called mycotic arthritis, is a very rare condition. It can be caused by any of the invasive types of fungi. These organisms may affect bone or joint tissue. One or more joints may be affected, most often the large, weight-bearing joints, especially the knees.
Conditions that can cause fungal arthritis include:
~ Blastomycosis
~ Candidiasis
~ Coccidioidomycosis
~ Cryptococcosis
~ Histoplasmosis
~ Sporotrichosis
The infection sometimes occurs as a result of an infection in another organ such as the lungs, and tends to get worse very slowly. The large joints are most often affected. People with weakened immune systems who travel or live in endemic areas are more susceptible to most causes of fungal arthritis.
~ Arthritis
~ Fever
~ Joint pain
~ Joint stiffness
~ Joint swelling
~ Swelling of the ankles, feet, and legs
Exams and Tests:
~ Culture of joint fluid that grows fungus
~ Joint x-ray showing joint changes
~ Positive antibody test (serology) for fungal disease
~ Synovial biopsy showing fungus
The goal of treatment is to cure the infection using antifungal drugs. The most commonly used antifungal drugs are amphotericin B or medications in the azole family (fluconazole, ketoconazole, or itraconazole).
Chronic or advanced bone or joint infection may require surgery (debridement) to remove the infected tissue.
Outlook (Prognosis)
What happens depends on the underlying cause of the infection and the patient’s overall health. A weakened immune system, cancer, and certain medications can affect the outcome.
Possible Complication:
Joint damage can occur if the infection is not treated promptly.
When to Contact a Medical Professional:
Call for an appointment with your health care provider if you have any symptoms of fungal arthritis.
Thorough treatment of fungal infections elsewhere in the body may help prevent fungal arthritis.

Fungal Infections

Posted in INFECTIONS - FUNGAL tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 4:34 pm by PCOSLady

What are fungal infections?
Fungal infections are infections caused by a fungus, a type of microorganism. Two common causes of fungal infections are a fungus called tinea and yeast infections caused by the fungus Candida albicans.
Some very common types of fungal infections caused by tinea include:
~ Athlete’s foot
~ Jock itch
~ Ringworm
Common yeast infections, also called candida and candidiasis, can infect other areas of the body including:
~ Digestive tract (gastroenteritis)
~ Lungs
~ Mouth (oral thrush)
~ Vagina (vaginal yeast infection, vaginal thrush)
In most cases, fungal infections are treatable in generally healthy people. However, these infections are more likely to occur and can be more difficult to treat in people with weakened immune systems due to such conditions as HIV/AIDS, diabetes, or taking steroid medications or chemotherapy. In these cases, complications of fungal infections may become life threatening.
Recurring fungal infections can also be a symptom of a serious, undiagnosed, underlying disease, such as HIV/AIDS or diabetes. Seek prompt medical care for recurring fungal infections including vaginal yeast infections.
What are the symptoms of fungal infections?
Symptoms of fungal infections differ depending on the type and severity of the infection, the area of the body affected, and individual factors…. Read more about fungal infections symptoms
What causes fungal infections?
Different types of fungus cause a variety of fungal infections:… Read more about fungal infections causes at the site page…
PCOS Lady:
Fungal Arthritis is something to consider, especially if medication(s) are not helping you…
How are fungal infections treated?
Treatment of fungal infections begins with seeking regular medical care throughout your life. Regular medical care allows your health care professional to assess your risks of developing fungal infections and promptly order diagnostic testing for fungal infections and underlying conditions as needed. These measures greatly increase the chances of diagnosing and treating underlying causes of fungal infections in their earliest stages…. Read more about fungal infections treatments at the site…

Infections of Internal Organs

Posted in BACTERIAL, INFECTIONS - FUNGAL tagged , , , , , , , , , at 4:21 pm by PCOSLady

PCOS Lady:
Found this piece to be interesting… People are dying from fungal and bacterial infections alot today!
Maybe we need to be checked by labs specializing in them every few years!
~ I know for a fact the general labs like Quest Diagnostics and Lab Corp do not test for much!
~ Something to consider here especially for those with asthma…
I would add also if you have a weakened immune system, are sick or have burned the hairs in your nose at some point…
Most internal infections are caused by the invasion of Aspergillus. The spores of this so-called ‘invasive’ fungus are found everywhere. They are breathed in and enter the body via the bronchi. A systemic infection with Aspergillus can be life threatening. Fortunately, not everyone is infected; it mainly affects people with damaged bronchi or those who have a weakened resistance.
If fungal spores are breathed in, different symptoms may appear:
~ Asthma, caused by an allergy for the fungus. These are occupational diseases that affect farmers, pigeon flyers, beer brewers, etc…
~ A fungal ball. This happens to people who suffered a pulmonary disease that left a ‘hole’ in the lung, e.g. tuberculosis. In this hole, the spores can grow into a fungal ball. In many cases, the patient will not be bothered by it, but sometimes this fungal ball causes other diseases.
~ Lung growth. In people with a seriously weakened resistance, the fungus can grow into the lungs and finally even into the blood vessels which can be fatal. Doctors will undoubtedly try to stop the growth of the fungus with medication but treatment is not always effective.

Mold Exposure Symptoms

Posted in MOLD tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 10:28 pm by PCOSLady

PCOS Lady:
Remember: If you see mold of any type on the outside of fruits and vegetables “it” is already through it! I see soft spots, greenish spots, black spots, white spots and at times fuzz… Flies are a good indicater to spoilage…

Symptoms of Fungal Exposure (Mycotoxicosis)
Susan Lillard-Roberts
Mold toxicity is often the end result with constant exposure to mold of a toxic substance. A common misconception among allergists who are untrained in this type of toxicity levels in humans, which is technically not their area of expertise unless they have trained specifically in environmental medicine with their background in immunology, is to do general allergen testing. Most tests usually result in an unequivocal result, a 2+ or less. This induces some physicians to order allergy shots, regardless. These shots are absolutely worthless (and could possibly be harmful) to a person who has been heavily exposed to these mycotoxins as they are already in a state of toxicity. If anything, this could exacerbate the problem. Because many doctors are not trained in this field, they may try to “guess” at a diagnosis.
In laymen’s terms, molds produce mycotoxins. These substances, although unseen by the naked eye, are ingested and then enter the body through the skin, mucous and airways. Once ingested, mold has the requirements to colonize and spread. In doing this, it can compromise the immune system and damage everyday processes of the body. Mold and yeast are interchangeable only in their dimorphic state, which is often a big misconception, although both are fungi. There has been a theory of a connection between Autism Spectrum Disorder onset and Candida Albicans in the body. New studies are being conducted during the first quarter of 2006. Updates will follow.
Fungi, which include yeasts, moulds, smuts and mushrooms, are responsible for causing four types of mycotic (fungal) disease:
1. Hypersensitivity – an allergic reaction to moulds and spores;
2. Mycotoxicosis – poisoning by food products contaminated by fungi
3. Mycetismus – the ingestion of preformed toxin (toadstool poisoning)
4. Infection (systemic) – (Mycotoxicosis; the subject below)
The following are a list of the most common symptoms of fungal exposure (bear in mind, people never fit all of below criteria). Most people with some forms of Mycotoxicosis meet at least 8 (recent symptoms) of the following criteria:
~ Fibromyalgia/mps (and several correlated symptoms)
~ Respiratory distress, coughing, sneezing, sinusitis
~ Difficulty swallowing, choking, spitting up (vomiting) mucous
~ Hypersensitivity pneumonitis
~ Burning in the throat and lungs (similar to acid reflux and often misdiagnosed as such)
~ Asthmatic signs; wheezing, shortness in breath, coughing, burning in lungs, etc.
~ Irritable bowel syndrome, nausea, diarrhea, sharp abdominal pains, stomach lesions
~ Bladder, liver, spleen, or kidney pain
~ Dark or painful urine
~ Dirt-like taste in mouth, coated tongue
~ Food allergies/leaky gut syndrome/altered immunity
~ Memory loss; brain fog, slurred speech, occasionally leading to dementia
~ Vision problems
~ Swollen lymph nodes
~ Large boils on neck (often a sign of anaphylaxis)
~ Yellowing of nails, ridges, or white marks under nail
~ Thyroid irregularities, sometimes leading to complete dysfunction; adrenal problems
~ Headaches
~ Anxiety/depression, heart palpitations – confusion, PTSD
~ Extreme blood pressure, cholesterol, or triglycerides irregularities
~ Ringing in ears, balance problems (very common), dizziness, loss of hearing (aspergillus niger)
~ Chronic fatigue (also included under this classification directional confusion)
~ Intermittent face flushing; almost always systemic, Called the Mylar Flush (neurological))
~ Night head sweats, and drooling while sleeping, profuse sweating
~ Multiple chemical sensitivity; only upon exposure to Stachybotrys and Chaetomium
~ Nose bleeds (stachybotrys)
~ Bruising/scarring easily; rash or hives, bloody lesions all over the skin (Often systemic, see images; skin)
~ Reproductive system complications; infertility, changes in menstrual cycles, miscarriage
~ Sudden weight changes (Detoxifier genotypes tend to gain weight, non-detoxifier genotypes tend to lose weight)
~ Cancer
~ Hair loss, very brittle nails, temporary loss of fingerprints (in rare cases)
~ Joint/muscle stiffness and pain
~ Irregular heart beat/heart attack
~ Seizures, inadvertent body jerking, twitching, inadvertent facial movements or numbness in face
~ Hypersensitivity when re-exposed to molds, which can lead to anaphylaxis
~ Anaphylaxis upon re-exposure to mycotoxin producing molds
~ Death, in extreme cases
Note: despite inaccurate and misleading reports by theorists regarding immuno-compromised, babies, and the elderly being more susceptible, this is a big misconception as exposure to the T-2 mycotoxins found in many types of current indoor molds will poison anyone in time; no one is immune. The reason for this conflicting information is that studies have never been conducted to prove this. If so called experts are going to make such a broad and misleading statement, they may as well say that this same category of people is more susceptible to SARS, West Nile Virus, AIDS, and cancer. The T-2 mycotoxins found in many of these molds are the exact same T-2 mycotoxins that have killed widespread groups of innocent people with Yellow Rain, a biological warfare agent.
Different mold species can have varying health effects, but it is important to remember that any excessive mold growth needs to be taken care of, regardless of the species. Any excessive mold growth can lead to increased allergies, toxicity, and house/building structural problems.

Parasites in the US Not say US Doctors, WRONG!

Posted in MISDIAGNOSED, PARASITES tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 1:18 am by PCOSLady

Parasites in the US Not, WRONG!
PCOS Lady:
Parasites are here in many forms manifesting over time in you, around you, etc… Have you noticed more viruses? Colds usually now have a virus attached with them! Many viruses are immune to antibiotics, the list goes on and on… Some medical conditions have doubled and tripled in a few years time like allergies and sinus infections…. Mentioned on The Doctors TV show recently (4/2012)…
“You” have to research your symptoms and find the condition(s) that meets most or all your symptoms… These are major reasons why!
FYI: US Doctors are not trained to treat parasites or yeast infections in any great detail… US Doctors are not trained to treat fungal or bacterial infections as well… You have to seek a tropical specialist for those…
~ A retired physician’s assistant who started out in bacterial research made me aware of this…
Read my Parasite Protocal post for the steps to take…
The owner of the Parasite Testing Lab told me this same thing about the US… His research on 100 US proved 32% had parasites… 100 European proved 20% had parasites…
Please read the segment from Huma Health about American doctors…
Plus read through their site, it’s highly informative…
Quoted from:
Huma Health
We live in a modern, clean, sanitary country – talking about parasites is UNHEARD OF. We Americans consider it to be a Third World problem. American doctors are not trained to recognize or treat parasite infections. American doctors who take a Parasitology course (the study of human parasites) are given information and stats from foreign countries, so these doctors perceive parasites as a problem not associated with the United States. In other words, it’s not talked about, not taught to the members of our medical community and is frankly ignored by most everyone.

The sad fact is most insurance plans/companies do not cover natural remedies, etc…
– Makes me wonder about why not! OR is it a confirmation on making money off us? Keeping us sick, etc…
~ I asked my DO if my insurance would cover an all natural plan for PCOS… He abruptly said “NO they won’t”…
More parasite symptoms are redness on your hands arms to elbows and feet to knees days… You may see white spots in the red as well plus may see just red dots that are deep then go light… Heart burn is another feeling you will experience!
Parasitic Infections Are Dramatically Rising
~ Morgellons ~ A Mundane Approach… Parasitic Infections Are Dramatically Rising … February 27, 2013…
~ Why would Americans have parasitic problems? Parasites are in every aspect of our environment including the food, soil and water we drink. They are found in every economic level but more so in poorer communities. There are 150,000 ( FACT:  250,000 “bad” parasites types, 50,000 are yeast types) different kinds of parasites. There are only a few that have standard tests to identify the infestation. The parasites are usually discovered during surgery when the failed organ is opened. The shocked surgeons find on examination, parasites infecting the tissue.
~ Who is most at risk for parasitic infections: All of us! It has been estimated that 90 percent of the North American population has at least one kind of worm in their intestine.
