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.

MS: Mimic Lupus, PCOS

Posted in LUPUS, MS tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 1:06 am by PCOSLady

PCOS Lady: I was prompted to post MS symptoms since some overlap Lupus and PCOS … Doctors are misdiagnosing all three, causing conditions to possibly progress worse at times!
~ Symptoms matter! Your symptom history plays a huge roll with diagnosing!
~ Read info in all the sites, each has abit more…
~ Montel Williams has MS…
~
MS
~
Multiple sclerosis has a probability of affecting 2-150 women out of every 100000. MS, attacks the central nervous system, wherein the immune system starts damaging nerve covering in the brain. The disease usually starts appearing in young adults with a varied level of symptoms. It impacts each individual differently. It is seldom fatal, but in most cases causes disability.
~
One of the most common symptoms of MS in women is the difficulty with vision. One can face blurry eyesight, double vision, blindness in one or both eyes, involuntary movement of the eyes, etc.
~
Early Signs of MS
~
~ balance,m walking and dizziness
~ bladder
~ bowel
~ eyes and sight
~ fatigue
~ memory and thinking
~ mental health
~ pain
~ sexual problems
~ spasms and stiffness
~ speech
~ swallowing
~ tremor
~
Causes and Triggers
~
Muscles are involved in every movement you make. They get longer and shorter to move and hold the body.
If MS causes nerve damage that affects muscle movements, they can cause a range of problems.
~
Recognizing Trigger Factors
~
Investigating potential trigger factors that cause or make your spasms or stiffness worse is a vital step in finding solutions. If identified and addressed, these may reduce or relieve the problem.
~
For example, something as simple as loosening tight clothing might provide some relief.
~
The following are some of the more common trigger factors that you and your doctor or MS nurse might consider:
~
~ an increase in your body temperature (perhaps because of a fever or exercise)
~ infections (for example, bladder or chest infections)
~ if you are experiencing a relapse
~ skin irritation (including pressure sores)
~ a full bladder
~ constipation, causing a full bowel
~ overly tight strapping or clothes
~ a fractured bone (perhaps caused by a fall)
~ problems with posture
~ emotional stress
~
Only a neurologist can diagnose MS…

Misdiagnosed and Sites…

Posted in LINKS, MISDIAGNOSED tagged , , , , , , at 12:56 am by PCOSLady

WAR HORSE... BE AWARE... SYMPTOMS COUNT! THE RIGHT DIAGNOSIS WILL KEEP YOU ALIVE!



PCOS is a highly misdiagnosed syndrome… Most doctors interpret PCOS in their own way… Hardly ever the right way!
~
Felt i should post these sites i found for a friend of mine….
~
Searched info on malpractice for a friend of mine… Found interesting information on it…
~
Scenario:
Man had passed out, was disoriented when the ambulance got to him… The hospital MD and psychiatrist deemed it a mental problem…
~
Truth was his Depakote level was 3 points over the legal limit for the body!
~
Another problem, that hospital took him off all drugs which put him in to severe withdrawl !!!!!
~
– The 1st hospital never checked the drug levels in his system…
– He had minor to medium type stroke symptoms a few days later… The next hospital straightened him out…
– He was not Diabetic, but had a Hypothyroid and has lost 60 lbs in a few months after… Plus, now has the heart of a 20 yr old, per his heart surgeon!
~
MD:
His MD diagnosed him as a Diabetic, injecting 100 units of insulin nightly for a year… No blood tests were ever taken for diabetes…
Fact: If not a Diabetic or given to much insulin your body will make you eat more even through the night to keep up with the insulin! A symptom not listed…
~

~
Common Misdiagnoses and Hashimoto’s encephalitis
~
Cluster of diseases with difficult diagnosis issues:
~
There is a well-known list of medical conditions that are all somewhat difficult to diagnose, and all can present in a variety of different severities. Diseases in this group include multiple sclerosis, lupus, Lyme disease, fibromyalgia, thyroid disorders (hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism), chronic fatigue syndrome, diabetes – all of these can have vague symptoms in their early presentations. Also, depression can have some symptoms similar to these conditions, and also the reverse, that many of these conditions can mimic depression and be misdiagnosed as depression.
~
It’s malpractice if you ask:
~
“Was this diagnosis given after a thorough medical exam for underlying physical problems that could look like a mental one”
~
~
Thought you might like this collection of “KEY” sites on medical issues…

www.RightDiagnosis.com
~
www.Drugs.com
~
www.MedicineNet.com
~
www.MentalHelp.net
~
www.PsychCrime.org
~
My point:
You have to keep a record of symptoms, drugs, etc… Have someone available that knows you quite well to back you up! Look up things online, in forums and groups, etc… KEEP notes on what doctors say, do, etc… It all pays for you in the end!
~
Advocate:
Even think about a medical advocate to speak for you and handle some medical things for you… I feel you need one if the doctor does not listen to you, etc…
– I witnessed my 65 yr old friend being ignored by his MD…
– 50+ yr olds may need to consider an advocate if they are being ignored or are kinda shy speaking up…
~
YOU:
~ YOU know your body…
~ YOU are in control of your body!
