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…

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.)

Fact: 2 weeks of eating right WILL shift your life curve…
BUT, eating right then eating bad for 2 weeks will change that life curve, too…
Fact: The biggest changes are outside of you!
~

Workouts:
Eat something like yogurt or drink a protein shake before you do… Otherwise you will lose muscle along with fat per Dr Oz… 5/8/2012 show…
~ www.Mercola.com
~ Sugar or HFCS eaten after a workout will completely shut down your body’s production of your Human Growth Hormone…
~ Dr Oz said do not grab an energy drink after a work out either for the same reason…
~
Isometrics:
A certified personal trainer told me to hold it 6 seconds each rep… 6 is the magic number!
~
Drinks – Clear soda is far better than colored ones… Colored ones have chemicals in it to hurt you… Mountain Dew is the worst! It has Bromade(sp) (Bromine) a poison in it shadowed by heavy amounts of sugar…
– Beer – Budweiser is the only beer loaded with chemicals which answers why most people get headaches drinking it!
(a beer distributor manager told me)
– * A headache is the 1st thing a person will usually experience when the body is rejecting what you are eating, drinking or taking….
~
Waist:
Healthy: Your waist should be half your height…
– To measure, suck your tummy in for a proper measurement per Dr Oz!

– Men, waist no more than 40″…
~
Do not ever eat a banana 1st thing! Tummy can’t digest it…

You can always discard the bun and bread to use lettuce…
~
Remember to eat something every 2-3 hours…
Plus do not eat anything 3 hours before bedtime…
~
Always eat carbs with a protein! You never absorb the calories…
~
Drink a 12 oz of soda a day if you like…
Stay away from diet stuff – BAD for you!
Use butter never margarine, etc…
– Margarine clogs arteries!
~
Chew sugarless gum or keep hard candy or nuts or trail mix with you…
– 1/4 cup of almonds or walnuts daily are great!
– Pistachios are good too…
~
Know it takes 2 weeks to wean your body off carbs and cravings…

~
Keep a high protein level daily of 30% to keep muscle mass….
~
“Key” Test
Get a blood test done called Serum Insulin Level test!
A blood test, level should be under 11 to lose weight… If 12 and higher you need a strict diet, hard exercise or you may have a hormone imbalance or something else….
~
PCOS Lady, I do say modify it for you…

Margarine vs Butter
~
In a head-to-head battle between butter and its artificial competitor, the original wins by a landslide. Sure, the spreads have the same number of calories, but Margarine has more trans fat, which simultaneously raises your “bad” (LDL) cholesterol and lowers “good” (HDL) cholesterol, according to the Mayo Clinic. “That’s the one ingredient we dietitians recommend to avoid completely,” Moskovitz says. To limit your risk of heart disease, stick with the real stuff. And choose whipped butter, which has a lower caloric density.
