Natural Health Hygiene How to Treat a Yeast Infection Naturally
Yeast infections are common in women, butthey can also be found in children and in men. I'm Lauren Roy for Sugar Hollow Farmin Phillipston, Mass. Yeast infections are very unpleasant. The first thing you needto do if you think you have a yeast infection is have it checked out, diagnosed properly.Be careful taking any of the overthecounter medicines because they can have side effects.You can treat it naturally with acidophilus, which comes in a capsule form. Get the kindthat you have to keep in your refrigerator. And double up on that and that will help balancethe amount of yeast in your body. You can also use yogurt nutritionally as well as topicallyto balance the amount of yeast in your body,
which we all have yeast. It's just that sometimesit overgrows and becomes unpleasant. So you have to bring it back down to a normal amountand it's very helpful to do that naturally. You just eat your yogurt, make sure that it'sthe kind that has the active cultures, and you take your acidophilus, drink plenty ofwater, keep yourself clean, and wear cotton underwear. You also want to make sure thatif you're taking antibiotics, you are also eating yogurt andor taking acidophilus becauseantibiotics can sometimes cause yeast infections.

How yeasts survive stress in the human body
My research focuses on the pathogenic yeast Candida glabrata which causes often fatal systemic blood stream infections in humans. In particular, I'm investigating how Candida glabrata survives stresses in the human environment. For an example, when our blood cells encounter invading microorganisms in our blood certain immune cells will engulf the invading microorganisms and release toxic chemicals to kill them. However, Candida glabrata is able to survive this and will replicate inside blood cells and go on to cause disease. To further understand how Candida glabrata
survives stresses encountered in the human environment I have designed a number of mutants which we have examined. We found that some mutants were able to survive stresses better than others and when we examine the DNA of the stress resistant mutants, we were then able to identify genes that are important for infection. Once we've identified genes which are important for causing disease we can then go on to research these further and use them as potential targets for developing novel therapeutics to treat fungal disease.
Does Candida Cause Acne Rosacea
Greetings. New Zealand naturopath, Eric Bakker.Author of Candida Crusher and formulator of the Canxida range of supplements. Thanks forchecking out my tutorial. Question here by Pasqual from Quebec, Canada. Pasqual's asking me,quot;Eric, does Candida cause acne rosacea?quot; Pasqual, there is definitely a link between Candidaand acne rosacea. That's been proven now. I've looked at many different kinds of studiesfrom PubMed, InBase, and CINAHL, and I've had a really good look through different databasesonline after I got your email. Also, in Singapore, there is a skin there where they'vefound a very clearcut link between the gut microbiota to cleaning up the gut with patientsand the skin. I've noticed this in my
now for probably over 20 years. I've treatedover a thousand cases of psoriasis successfully, but I also treat a lot of acne rosacea andmany other different kinds of skin conditions. There is a huge link between the gut and theskin. A very interesting case I recently had wasa male patient from Portugal, a 38yearold male with seriously bad acne rosacea. Basically,I didn't even look at the skin. I just treated the gut and we had an outstanding result.We found that this guy had incredible amounts of Candida albicans, Candida glabrata, andalso Blastocystis hominis. And once we cleared up these things and we found that with preand post stool testing, we had an incredibly
high success rate with eradication, the skinentirely cleared up. He's a very lovely man and now he excitedly Skyped me recently. Hesaid, quot;I've now got a girlfriend. I've got a Swedish girlfriend. I'm so excited.quot; I don'tknow if you've seen how bad acne rosacea can get. When you've got bad acne rosacea, you'vegot no selfconfidence. For this guy after 10 or 15 years to get his skin finally clearedup, his confidence was like in overdrive and he was so excited to tell me all about hisgirlfriend. How did this association occur? Well, in Singaporeat the Dermo what they found out was that Candida could actually produce differentkinds of chemicals that upregulate or stimulate
the production of inflammatory cytokines.So what that means in normal English is Candida can stir the hell out of the immune systemand the immune system, in turn, then can create chemicals that can create dilation of theskin, the blood vessels, flushing, redness, irritation, infections, all kinds of thingscan occur. There is certainly a link there. If anyone is watching this who has got acnerosacea, my strong advice for you is (A) improve the upper digestion because many people withacne rosacea have got hypochlorhydria or underactive stomach, (B) ensure that the pancreas is workingproperly and it will work better when the stomach is working better, (C) make sure thatyou've cleared up food allergies or food intolerances.
Sometimes it's worthwhile doing an ELISA test,so an IgG, IgE food allergy test. The best one, I think, is from US Biotech in Seattle.It's s serum test, (D) if you've got a really bad problem like my patient in Portugal, geta proper stool test done, a comprehensive one to assess what kind of bugs you've gotin the gut. So then, we can go about cleaning up the gut and (E) kick back and enjoy life.Because if you do all of those things properly, there is a big chance we can clear up theacne rosacea profoundly and you can lead a relatively normal life with a good amountof selfesteem. I hope that answers your question, Pasqual.In my opinion, there is a massive link between
acne rosacea and a yeast infection. Don'tforget, while I've got your attention, to please subscribe to my channel. Check outmy 1,000+ articles at yeastinfection and make sure you do my quiz. I've got the world'sbest online quiz. I've also got a very nice supplement for people with acne rosacea. It'scalled Canxida Restore. It's a great probiotic enzyme formula.
