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.

Surprising Health Hazards Associated with All-Fruit Diet

~ Dr Mercola … Surprising Health Hazards Associated with All-Fruit Diet … February 11, 2013
~ Story at-a-glance
~
~ Ashton Kutcher recently disclosed he suffered pancreatic problems brought on by following an all-fruit diet adopted in preparation to play the character of Steve Jobs in the upcoming film “Jobs.” Steve Jobs died of pancreatic cancer in 2011
~ Fruits are loaded with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, which is why eating a small amount of them is fine for healthy people. However, many benefit by restricting their fruit intake due to its high fructose content
~ Research suggests fructose may have a particularly significant impact on pancreatic cancer, as pancreatic cancer cells have been shown to use fructose for cell division, speeding up the growth and spread of the cancer
~ As a general guideline, I recommend limiting your total fructose consumption to 25 grams of fructose per day. If you suffer with any fructose-related health issues, such as insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome, heart disease, obesity or cancer, you would be wise to limit your total fructose consumption to 15 grams of fructose per day. This includes fructose from ALL sources, including whole fruit…

How Tumors Exploit Gut Flora to Fuel Growth, and the Surprising Finding that Chemotherapy Boosts Resistant Cancer
~
October 24 2012
~
Story at-a-glance
~
~ Researchers have found a microbial-dependent mechanism through which some cancers mount an inflammatory response that fuels their development and growth. They suggest inhibiting the inflammatory cytokines produced might slow cancer progression and improve response to chemotherapy
~ Probiotics tend to downregulate at least one of several cytokines involved in inflammatory processes, so probiotics may turn out to be an important player in helping to inhibit cytokine production
~ New research shows chemotherapy can damage healthy cells in such a way that they begin secreting a protein that not only protects cancer cells and promotes their survival, but also causes the tumors to be resistant to further chemotherapy treatment
~ Despite the 40-year “war on cancer”, drug-based “advances” are not making a dent in the rise of cancer prevalence, as the conventional approach fails to address lifestyle-related issues such as optimizing food intakes, lack of sun exposure, DNA-disrupting wireless technologies, lack of sleep, obesity, and chemical exposures of all kinds
~ My top 12 cancer prevention strategies are included
~
By Dr. Mercola
~
Could your gut flora play a role in cancer growth? According to recent research, the answer is a tentative yes.
~
Findings published in the journal Nature report the discovery of microbial-dependent mechanisms through which some cancers mount an inflammatory response that fuels their development and growth. These findings provide new insight into how cancer cells can hijack your body’s inflammatory reaction by exploiting microbial-dependent immune cells.
~
As reported by Medical News Today:
~
~ “The association between chronic inflammation and tumor development has long been known from the early work of German pathologist Rudolph Virchow. Harvard University pathologist Harold Dvorak later compared tumors with ‘wounds that never heal,’ noting the similarities between normal inflammation processes that characterize wound- healing and tumorigenesis or tumor-formation.
~
~ Indeed, 15 to 20 percent of all cancers are preceded by chronic inflammation – a persistent immune response that can target both diseased and healthy tissues… Still, most cancers are not preceded by chronic inflammation.
~
On the other hand, they exploit ubiquitous, infiltrating immune cells to unduly provoke and hijack the host inflammatory reaction. Until now, the mechanism of so-called ‘tumor-elicited inflammation,’ which is detected in most solid malignancies, was poorly explained.
~
~ ‘The tumor-associated inflammatory reaction… may hold the keys for future preventive and therapeutic measures,’ said first author Sergei Grivennikov, Ph.D
~
Noting that studies of long-term users of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, such as aspirin, have revealed that general inhibition of inflammation reduces the risk of cancer death by up to 45 percent, depending on the type of cancer. ‘So inhibition of inflammation during cancer development may be beneficial.'”
~
How Even Beneficial Gut Bacteria Might Spur Colon Cancer Growth
~
The research centered around colon cancer. What may be surprising is that the intestinal bacteria involved in this inflammatory mechanism are not necessarily the pathogenic variety, but rather ordinarily benign microflora.
~
The reason for this is because as the tumor develops, it disrupts the normal, healthy functioning of tissues, and because tumors lack a particular protein that normally coats and protects tissue cells, normal microflora present in your colon can enter the tumor. Since the bacteria does not “belong” there, your immune cells recognize them as invaders, and launch an inflammatory response.
~
The presence of microbial products are also picked up by macrophages (white blood cells) and immune cells within the tumor, which in turn produce cytokines that further spurs the inflammatory process. One of the primary cytokines involved is Interleukin-23, which regulates inflammation and triggers the production of other inflammatory cytokines that promote tumor development and progression.
~
The researchers were able to reduce tumor-elicited inflammation and tumor growth by using a combination of broad-spectrum antibiotics. Antibiotics, as you probably know, indiscriminately kill off all types of intestinal bacteria, and by reducing the normal microflora, tumor growth and related inflammation diminished.
~
According to Grivennikov:
~ “This is a very nice demonstration of how tumor-elicited inflammation in cancers that arise in the absence of underlying chronic inflammatory disease can be induced… The next step is to look for the upregulation of Interleukin-23 and related cytokines in colon cancer patients, inhibit these cytokines and determine whether these impact cancer progression and response to therapy.”
~
While tumor growth and tumor-elicited inflammation was reduced, I would caution you to not get confused and think that heavy-handed antibiotic use might spare you from colon cancer. I believe this would be a serious mistake… The key, I think, is to place a greater focus on optimizing gut health, to prevent and naturally counteract the development of inflammation in the first place.
~
The idea that you might be able to halt colon cancer proliferation by eradicating your microflora, or designing a drug to prevent cytokine production is bound to cause some serious side effects. Cytokine production occurs in response to inflammation, so just inhibiting them is not actually going to resolve the underlying inflammation…
~
And you clearly cannot be healthy without normal gut flora, so eradicating it to prevent tumor growth would likely be disastrous in the long term. What you want to do is encourage the proliferation of beneficial bacteria, which by competitive inhibition, will limit or decimate the populations of pathogenic bacteria, yeasts and fungi. This is largely done by limiting fuel for the pathogens, which would include sugars and non-fibrous carbs, and providing loads of beneficial bacterial supplements like fermented vegetables.
~
As Grivennikov says, inhibiting inflammation during cancer development is likely a vital component of prevention. The question is how to properly inhibit inflammation, and in my view, inhibiting inflammation through healthy lifestyle choices makes a whole lot of sense, as opposed to taking drugs.
~
Your Gut Affects Your Metabolism and Genetic Expression
~
As time goes on, we’re gaining more and more information about the important roles gut flora plays in maintaining overall health. The good news is that this is an area you can exercise a lot of control over. Your diet can quickly alter the composition of your gut flora. Processed foods high in sugar and chemical additives and low in nutrients is a surefire way to decimate the beneficial bacteria in your gut, allowing the harmful pathogenic kind to thrive.
~
Research has also shown that your microflora has a significant impact on gene expression, such as the genes responsible for vitamin biosynthesis and metabolism. Probiotics have been found to influence the activity of hundreds of your genes, helping them to express in a positive, disease-fighting manner – some of which affect your body in a manner resembling the effects of certain medicines. Probiotics (healthy bacteria) has over 30 beneficial pharmacological actions that we know of, including those listed below.
~ * Site: http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2010/10/11/probiotics-healing-power-impresses-researchers.aspx
~
Note that probiotics downregulate interleukin-6, one of several cytokines involved in inflammatory processes, so probiotics may turn out to be an important player in helping to inhibit cytokine production – as suggested by Grivennikov above – and control inflammation that might otherwise lead to colon cancer:
~
CHART:
Anti-bacterial….Anti-allergenic….Anti-viral….Immunomodulatory
Anti-infective….Antioxidant….Antiproliferative….Apoptopic (cellular self-destruction)
Antidepressive….Antifungal….Cardioprotective….Gastroprotective
Radio- and chemo protective…..Upregulates glutathione and certain glycoproteins that help regulate immune responses, including interleukin-4, interleukin-10, and interleukin-12….
Downregulates interleukin-6 (a cytokine involved in chronic inflammation and age-related diseases)…. Inhibits tumor necrosis factor (TNF) alpha inhibitor, NF-kappaB, epidermal growth factor receptor, and more
~
The Ideal Way to Optimize Your Gut Health
~
Historically, people didn’t have the same problems with their gut health as we do today for the simple fact that they got large quantities of beneficial bacteria from their diet in the form of fermented or cultured foods, which were invented long before the advent of refrigeration and other forms of food preservation.
~
You can ferment virtually any food, and every traditional culture has traditionally fermented their foods to prevent spoilage. There are also many fermented beverages and yoghurts. Quite a large percent of all the foods that people consumed on a daily basis were fermented, and each 2-3 ounce serving of an ideally prepared food can provide trillions of beneficial bacteria – far more than you can get from any probiotic supplement.
~
In fact, it’s unusual to find a probiotic supplement containing more than 10 billion colony-forming units, but when my team tested fermented vegetables produced by probiotic starter cultures, they had 10 trillion colony-forming units of bacteria. Literally, one serving of vegetables was equal to an entire bottle of a high potency probiotic! Fermented foods also give you a wider variety of beneficial bacteria, so all in all, it’s your most cost effective alternative.
~
Fermenting your own foods is a fairly straight-forward and simple process, and can provide even greater savings. To learn more, please listen to my interview with Caroline Barringer, a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (NTP) who has been involved with nutrition for about 20 years.

Chemotherapy Can Boost Cancer Growth, Study Finds
~
A related news story again highlights the need to revise how we treat cancer and how we view cancer prevention. Chemotherapy is a staple of the * cut, poison, burn paradigm that is conventional cancer treatment, despite the evidence against it. According to research published in the journal Nature Medicine, chemotherapy can damage healthy cells in such a way that they begin secreting a protein (WNT16B) that not only protects cancer cells and promotes their survival, but can also cause the tumors to be resistant to further chemotherapy treatment.
~
In a nutshell, what we’re talking about is chemotherapy-resistant cancer… caused by the initial treatment. It’s difficult to think of a worse scenario than this. The finding was reportedly “completely unexpected,” and was only discovered because they were trying to determine why cancer cells can be easily killed in a lab setting yet remain so resilient inside your body. The results were confirmed on breast and ovarian cancer tumors.Co-author Peter Nelson of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle told AFP:
~ * Site: http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2011/09/19/cut-poison-burn.aspx
~
“The increase in WNT16B was completely unexpected… WNT16B, when secreted, would interact with nearby tumor cells and cause them to grow, invade, and importantly, resist subsequent therapy…”
~
The researchers speculate that adding an antibody to WNT16B to the chemotherapy might improve the response rate and kill off more cancer cells. Another alternative might be to use smaller, less toxic doses of chemotherapy to reduce the damage to healthy cells.
~
Getting to the Root of the Problem
~
I strongly believe the cancer rates are escalating because they are in no way shape or form addressing the underlying cause of most cancers. Instead, most of the research is directed towards expensive drugs that target late stages of the disease and greatly enrich the drug companies but simply do not prevent cancer. If ever there was an area in which an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure it is cancer. I strongly believe that if you are able to work your way up to * the advanced level of my health plan, that you will virtually eliminate your risk of most cancers.
~ * Site: http://www.mercola.com/nutritionplan/advanced.htm

Environmental and lifestyle factors are increasingly being pinpointed as the primary culprits fueling our cancer epidemic. This includes:
~
Pesticide and other chemical exposures ~ Processed and artificial foods (plus the chemicals in the packaging) ~ Wireless technologies, dirty electricity, and medical diagnostic radiation exposure ~ Pharmaceutical drugs ~ Obesity, stress, and poor sleeping habits ~ Lack of sunshine exposure and use of sunscreens
~
This is clearly not an exhaustive list as such a list would be exceedingly long. For more specifics on consumer products implicated as contributors to cancer, please review the Cancer Prevention Coalition’s “Dirty Dozen” list.
~
Medical researchers would like you to believe they’re doing everything they can to come up with a solution. Yet all we see is research into newer drug therapies. Clearly they’re not digging close enough to the root of the problem, because if they did, they’d touch on some of these lifestyle issues just mentioned. From my perspective, you ignore lifestyle factors at your own peril when it comes to cancer… Because, clearly, drug-based “advances” are not making a dent in this progressively prevalent disease.
~
REAL Cancer Advancements that Need to Become Mainstream Knowledge
~
In the last 30 years the global cancer burden has doubled, and it will likely double again between 2000 and 2020, and * nearly triple by 2030 – unless people begin to take cancer prevention seriously. We CAN turn this trend around, but to do so the medical community must stop overlooking the methods that can actually have a significant impact.
~ * Site: http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2008/12/27/the-coming-cancer-explosion.aspx
~
Three cancer advancements in particular merit special mention. These advancements have not yet been accepted by conventional medicine, and they must be.
~
Number 1: Vitamin D – There’s overwhelming evidence pointing to the fact that * vitamin D deficiency plays a crucial role in cancer development. Researchers within this field have estimated that about 30 percent of cancer deaths could be prevented each year simply by optimizing the vitamin D levels in the general population. And if you are being treated for cancer it is likely that higher blood levels – probably around 80-90 ng/ml – would be a beneficial adjunct to your treatment plan. To learn the details on how to use vitamin D therapeutically, please review my previous article, Test Values and Treatment for Vitamin D Deficiency.
~ * Site: http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2009/06/11/New-Model-Of-Cancer-Development-Vitamin-D-is-the-Key.aspx
~ * Site: http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2008/08/07/daily-sunlight-can-keep-cancer-away.aspx
~ * Site: http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2002/02/23/vitamin-d-deficiency-part-one.aspx
~
The health benefits of optimizing your levels, either by safe sun exposure (ideally), a safe tanning bed, or oral supplementation as a last resort, simply cannot be overstated. In terms of protecting against cancer, vitamin D has been found to offer protection in a number of ways, including:
~
~ Regulating genetic expression
* Site: http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2009/03/12/vitamin-d–the-master-key-to-optimal-health.aspx
~ Increasing the self-destruction of mutated cells (which, if allowed to replicate, could lead to cancer)
~ Reducing the spread and reproduction of cancer cells
~ Causing cells to become differentiated (cancer cells often lack differentiation)
~ Reducing the growth of new blood vessels from pre-existing ones, which is a step in the transition of dormant tumors turning cancerous
~
Number 2: Optimizing Your Insulin Levels – Normalizing your insulin levels is one of the most powerful physical actions you can take to lower your risk of cancer. Otto Warburg actually received a Nobel Prize for his research on cancer cell physiology in 1934, which clearly demonstrated cancer cells require more sugar to thrive. Unfortunately, very few oncologists appreciate or apply this knowledge today.
~
High levels of insulin can cause major damage to your body. The most recognized of these is diabetes, but that is far from the only one. As Ron Rosedale, M.D. said in one of my most popular articles, * Insulin and Its Metabolic Effects:
* Site: http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2001/07/14/insulin-part-one.aspx
~
~ “It doesn’t matter what disease you are talking about, whether you are talking about a common cold or cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis or cancer, the root is always going to be at the molecular and cellular level, and I will tell you that insulin is going to have its hand in it, if not totally control it.”
~
The good news is that controlling your insulin levels is relatively straightforward. First, limit your intake of processed foods, grains and sugars/fructose as much as possible to prevent your insulin levels from becoming elevated in the first place. Replace them with healthy fats such as butter, animal fat, coconut oil, avocados, seeds and nuts.
~
I recently completed ten hours of interviews with Dr. Rosedale in which he goes FAR deeper into his philosophy and recommendations. I was floored at what I learned and he has once again changed my position on many important nutritional issues. One of the KEY new insights is that you need to LIMIT your protein to no more than your basic requirements, which is about one gram per kilogram of LEAN body mass, which is typically less than 70 grams for most people. If you go over this you will upregulate the mTOR pathways, which has been strongly associated with increasing your risk for cancer.
~
I am very excited to share this information with you once we review it as it is possible that this can help the treatment of most cancers. And it is all done with dietary regulation. Supplements can be used, but they are optional and only make the transition to fat burning metabolism easier.
~
Number 3: Exercise – If you are like most people, when you think of reducing your risk of cancer, exercise doesn’t immediately come to mind. However, there is some fairly compelling evidence that exercise can slash your risk of cancer.
~
One of the primary ways exercise lowers your risk for cancer is by reducing elevated insulin levels, which creates a low sugar environment that discourages the growth and spread of cancer cells. Additionally, exercise improves the circulation of immune cells in your blood. Your immune system is your first line of defense against everything from minor illnesses like a cold right up to devastating, life-threatening diseases like cancer.
~
The trick about exercise, though, is understanding how to use it as a precise tool. This ensures you are getting enough to achieve the benefit, not too much to cause injury, and the right variety to balance your entire physical structure and maintain strength and flexibility, and aerobic and anaerobic fitness levels. This is why it is helpful to view exercise like a drug that needs to be carefully prescribed to achieve its maximum benefit.
~
It’s important to include a large variety of techniques in your exercise routine, such as strength training, aerobics, core-building activities, and stretching. Most important of all, however, is to make sure you include * high-intensity, burst-type exercise, once or twice a week, in which you raise your heart rate up to your anaerobic threshold for 20 to 30 seconds, and then you recover for 90 seconds. These exercises activate your super-fast twitch muscle fibers, which can increase your body’s natural production of human growth hormone.

~
Winning the War Against Cancer Begins with Your Personal Choices
~
You can do a lot, right now, to significantly decrease your cancer risk. Even the conservative American Cancer Society states that one-third of cancer deaths are linked to poor diet, physical inactivity, and carrying excess weight. So, in addition to the main three suggestions listed above, making the following healthy lifestyle changes can go a very long way toward avoiding all forms of cancer:
~
~ Eat a healthy diet of whole organic foods, and pay careful attention to keeping your insulin levels down by avoiding sugar/fructose and grains. I make this easy with my recently updated and free * Nutrition Plan. The key here is to radically reduce your sugar and non-fiber carbs to an absolute minimum and limit your protein to one gram per one kilogram of lean body mass.
* Site: http://www.mercola.com/nutritionplan/index.aspx
~ Only 25 percent of people eat enough vegetables, so by all means eat as many vegetables as you are comfortable with. Ideally, they should be fresh and organic. * Cruciferous vegetables in particular have been identified as having potent anti-cancer properties. Remember that carb nutritional types may need up to 300 percent more vegetables than protein nutritional types.
* Site: http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2008/07/22/how-broccoli-fights-cancer.aspx
~ Get appropriate amounts of high quality animal-based omega-3 fats.
~ Have a tool to permanently erase the neurological short-circuiting that can activate cancer genes. Even the CDC states that 85 percent of disease is caused by emotions. It is likely that this factor may be more important than all the other physical ones listed here, so make sure this is addressed. My particular favorite tool for this purpose, as you may know, is the * Emotional Freedom Technique.
* Site: http://eft.mercola.com/
1… Maintain an ideal body fat percentage.
* Site: http://fitness.mercola.com/sites/fitness/archive/2011/01/22/should-i-eat-anything-after-dinner-if-i-want-to-lose-weight.aspx
2… Get enough high-quality sleep.
3… Reduce your exposure to environmental toxins like pesticides, household chemical cleaners, synthetic air fresheners and air pollution.
4… Reduce your use of cell phones and other wireless technologies, and implement as many * safety strategies as possible if/when you cannot avoid their use.
* Site: http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2011/01/05/new-evidence-identifies-strong-cell-phone-cancer-link.aspx
5… Boil, poach or steam your foods, rather than frying or charbroiling them.

Insulin Sensitivity Gene Found – PTEN

Posted in CANCER, RESEARCH tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 6:56 pm by PCOSLady

Insulin Sensitivity Gene Found – PTEN
~
PCOS Lady:
Look into having your PTEN gene level tested…

http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMoa1113966
~
PTEN Mutations as a Cause of Constitutive Insulin Sensitivity and Obesity
~
Background
~
Epidemiologic and genetic evidence links type 2 diabetes, obesity, and cancer. The tumor-suppressor phosphatase and tensin homologue (PTEN) has roles in both cellular growth and metabolic signaling. Germline PTEN mutations cause a cancer-predisposition syndrome, providing an opportunity to study the effect of PTEN haploinsufficiency in humans.

~
Scientists find insulin sensitivity gene, may lead to new diabetes treatments
~
The PTEN gene encodes for an enzyme that is part of the insulin signalling pathway in the body. It is known to have a role in controlling the body’s metabolism, and to play a part in cell growth. The Oxford team was interested in learning more about this dual role.
~
There is an inherited genetic condition called Cowden syndrome caused by faults in the PTEN gene. It is very rare and is thought to affect perhaps one in 200,000 people, with around 300 people with the condition in the UK. PTEN’s role in cell growth sees people with Cowden syndrome develop many benign polyps in their skin, mouth and bowel, and have a higher risk than the general population of developing breast cancer, thyroid cancer and womb cancer.

PCOS Lady:
Thought best to make a place for factual info and info bits here on lifestyle issues… I come across bytes of interest all the time…
~ Research is ongoing, new findings are uncovered, new linkings of drugs, food, etc… to PCOS are added constantly…
~
BMI
~
http://www.wdxcyber.com/dxinf001.htm
~ Women’s Health Resource … Obesity with a body mass index (BMI) of over 27 is often present and it represents a central, android obesity (waist to hip ratio of greater than 0.85) in PCOS women.
~ BMI i feel should be checked by a trained person! Who uses the fat pincher thingy…
~ Case in point: My pinched BMI was 25, by my height & weight online it was 35!
~
BELLY FAT
~
This abdomen fat is called omentum… Omentum is a fold of the tissue lining the abdomen that surrounds the organs. The omentum stores fat extremely easily… That fat feeds your liver with toxins

~ Med Page Today … Food Packaging Tied to Metabolic Trouble in Kids…
~ Greater urinary concentration of BPA in children, commonly found in food and drink packaging, was significantly associated with higher risk of obesity, as well as greater odds of an abnormal waist circumference.
~ Note that another study found that increased concentration of the plasticizer DEHP in the urine of adolescents was associated with an increased risk for insulin resistance.

WAIST MEASUREMENTS
~
Proper way to measure is when you suck your tummy in! Per Dr Oz since we do not want to include your tummy muscles at a relaxed state!
~ Ideal measurement is half your height…

Why Are You So Mean To ME?!?!?!

~
Why Are You So Mean To ME?!?!?!
~ ~ ~
PCOS Lady:
Bullying creates several issues in any scenario compounded by stressing out all involved!
~ PCOS is made worse from stress…
~
We seem to ask ourselves this question many times… First time may be the 1st clue to abuse… 2nd time might be well into the relationship, questioning ourselves on why, etc… 3rd time may happen after you feel you have done all you can to please them! Yet the scenario is the same or worse…
~
MSN Group: Why Are You So Mean To ME?!?!?! (group deleted)
I thank the woman, 30+ year social worker who started and ran this MSN group for abused women for years… We all learned a great deal! Abusers only progressively get worse! Some to the point of killing… Only a select few actually change for the better…
~
Abuse of all kinds started from some where, some how, some one…
~ Some say a Narcissistic Personality is the cause…
~ Some say the abuser was conditioned growing up in an abusive family…
~ Some say the abuser was a black sheep in the family…
~ Some say the abuser was insecure…
~ Etc…
~
Bullying laws have been passed in many states, school teachers in some states are legally obligated to report abuse and bullying to the law…
~
“YOU” the public can change your neighborhoods, etc… by turning in the abuse, abusers, gang activity, etc… you witness in anonymously!
~ Gang activity now falls under Homeland Security laws…
~ ~ ~
I found this fantastic site from the UK loaded with highly informative information covering numerous topics… I posted a section here to show the wide variety of topics covered…

See a Doctor “IF” … 20+ yr olds or?

Posted in PCOS SYMPTOMS tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 8:59 pm by PCOSLady

THANK YOU PCOSA FOR THE HEALTH BYTE...


~
Here is this week’s Health Byte from the PCOSA … 5/1/04
~
When to See a Doctor About PCOS From The Age of 20 Onwards
~
Polycystic ovary syndrome is a long-term condition that can gradually affect females in different age groups from puberty right through to much later in life.
~
Symptoms of PCOS are often mistaken for another medical problem, which can make it difficult to know when to see your doctor. But early diagnosis and treatment of PCOS may help prevent serious related health complications such as pre- and type 2 diabetes and heart disease as well as reproductive and metabolic problems.
~
Taking a wait-and-see approach, often called watchful waiting, is not appropriate when PCOS is suspected.
~
If you are between 20 and 40 years old, consult your doctor if you have:
~
~ Menstrual cycles that are consistently less than 21 days apart or more than 35 days apart.
~ Regular menstrual cycles but you have been trying unsuccessfully to become pregnant for more than 12 months.
~ Vaginal bleeding that lasts more than 8 days. Watch out for large clots or excessive spotting.
~ Pelvic pain that lasts for more than 4 weeks.
~ Excessive hair growth or hair growing on the chest, back, belly or face. This PCOS-linked condition is known as hirsutism.
~ Any symptoms of diabetes, such as increased thirst and frequent urination (especially at night), unexplained increase in appetite, unexplained weight loss, fatigue, blurred vision or tingling or numbness in your hands or feet.
~ Skin problems such as acne, oily skin, dandruff, skin tags in the armpits or neck area, or dark skin patches (acanthosis nigricans) in skin folds or on the neck, groin or underarms.
~ Depression or mood swings. Many women have emotional problems related to the many physical symptoms of PCOS, such as excess hair, obesity or infertility.
~ Excess weight gain or upper body obesity (more abdominal fat than hip fat). This is also known as android obesity and is related to increased male hormone (testosterone) levels.
~
If you are older than 40, consult your doctor if you experience these additional symptoms which can be linked to PCOS :
~
~ Signs of heart disease, such as chest pain or pressure, shortness of breath, unusual levels of fatigue or high blood pressure (hypertension)
~
Who To See
~
Health professionals who can diagnose and treat PCOS may include:

~
~ Endocrinologists (pediatric or medical)
~ Reproductive endocrinologists
~ Gynecologists
~ Obstetricians
~ Family practice physicians
~ Nurse practitioners
~ Physician assistants
~ Internists
~ Registered dietitians
~
Sincerely,
~

~ ~ ~
PCOS Lady:
I am happy to post this byte and to see the added info with listed symptoms… Mentioning the added medical people and dietitians that can diagnose PCOS is wonderful!
~
When you see your doctor, ask to be tested for Celiac Disease as well, especially if stool is loose for days or always… My DO said that is an automatic dx for Celiac…

Cardiometabolics

Posted in LIFESTYLE CHANGES tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 4:57 am by PCOSLady

Cardiometabolics
~
The biggest health problem facing the world today is from the
combined impact of obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease.
It is critical that physicians and health care providers understand
the predictive relationship between metabolic risk factors and cardiovascular disease and employ aggressive intervention strategies to prevent and/or delay disease progression.
~
The 2012 Cardiometabolic Health Congress (CMHC) will take place October 10-13, 2012, at the Westin Boston Waterfront, in Boston, MA. The CMHC is currently working to design the 2012 curriculum to provide the most effective, current strategies for the prevention, diagnosis, and management of type 2 diabetes, atherosclerosis, hypertension, dyslipidemia, obesity, thrombosis, chronic kidney disease, and related comorbidities. Join our mailing list to be the first to receive the latest and greatest information regarding the 2012 CMHC program agenda and faculty.
~
The 2011 CMHC took place October 19-22, 2011 at the Sheraton Hotel, in Boston, MA, and was our most successful program yet. Over
1300 U.S.-based practicing clinicians joined our expert-level forum — translating the latest clinical data into practical strategies to prevent, delay, and manage cardiometabolic risk.

Metabolic Syndrome
Metabolic syndrome is a long-recognized medical condition, but has been defined only recently. A person is diagnosed with the syndrome when he or she has three of these five disorders affecting metabolism:
~
~ High blood pressure
~ High blood sugar
~ High triglycerides
~ Low HDL (‘good’) cholesterol
~ Abdominal obesity
~
Although any of these factors alone is unhealthy, the net effect of having at least three of these disorders is even worse, dramatically increasing the risk for cardiovascular disease and diabetes. In fact, metabolic syndrome carries the same cardiovascular risk as smoking two packs of cigarettes a day. The good news is that intervention and treatment in a comprehensive program can decrease cardiovascular risk and prevent the onset of diabetes.

I saw this list and felt it was important to post it here… The symptoms are vast overlapping PCOS and many other conditions…. Maybe you have this too and it’s not being addressed… It may answer the “WHY” your body does not respond to everything you try… April 2012 my DO told me 1 in 25 people have it and do not know it! His niece was just diagnosed having Celiac…
~ The View’s Elisabeth Hasselbeck has Celiac Disease and is Gluten Sensitive…
~ Celiac will prevent you from getting pregnant
~ Gluten Sensitivity starves you inside
~ Gluten allergic has you hungry still after eating because the nutrients pass through your body…
~ Her book: Deliciously G-Free Flavorful Believe Gluten-Free… http://www.amazon.com/Deliciously-G-Free-Flavorful-Believe-Gluten-Free/dp/0345529383/?qid=1340356292&s=books&sr=1-1&keywords=elisabeth+hasselbeck&ie=UTF8&ref=sr_1_1

Symptom Guide
~
Could My Symptoms Be Related to Celiac Disease or Gluten Sensitivity?
~
This is a common question people ask in the face of a bewildering array
of possible celiac disease and gluten sensitivity symptoms. The Gluten Free Works Celiac Disease Symptom Guide will help you identify possible symptoms and health problems that you can present to your doctor.
