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.

Is Tofu Good For Candida
Greetings. Greetings. It's Eric Bakker, naturopathfrom New Zealand. I'm the book called Candida Crusher and I'm also the formulator of a productrange called Canxida. Thanks for checking out my tutorials. I do appreciate it.I've got to talk to you today about tofu. Is tofu good or okay on the Candida diet?Let's get a couple of things straight with tofu for starters. Tofu is a soy protein.It's basically made by grinding up soy beans and then a product is added to it. I thinkit is called an anticoagulant. It's some kind of substance they add to it. What isdoes is it separates the curds from the whey, so the tofu basically is the curds. And they'llcompress this into blocks so you can get hard
tofu. You can get soft tofu. You can get silkentofu. It comes in different ways it's presented. I like the hard or the firm tofu.Tofu is very, very healthy food. It's been made in Asia for over 2,000. People have madeit for a long, long time. Some websites will falsely say that soy is never eaten in a tofuform traditionally and it's okay to have in a fermented form because that's how it goesback a long time ago. For example, tempeh or nato, I'll make some other tutorials on tempehand nato and explain what these products are. Tempe has basically been inoculated with thebacteria, a little bit like how we make sauerkraut, but they actually put like a starter withit and it gets a nice meaty sort of flavor.
I don't like nato. It looks a little bit likesnot and it doesn't taste good, but it's a very healthy food.I've been consuming tofu for about 30 years now. If you eat tofu, make sure that you geta nongenetically modified soybean that has been converted into tofu. And you can getthese products, so not all soy is genetically modified. A lot of it is, so you need to becareful. There's a lot of crap on the internet about soy and about tofu. I was just readinga yeast infection website where it says to strictly avoid all tofu and all soy productsbecause they're bad for your health. Many people say that.I've written quite a bit in my book, Candida
Crusher. Parrot talk. Many people I know arejust like parrots. I'll just read this out of my book. They just keep on repeating whatthey've heard from others word for word without even thinking or researching for themselves.They basically just repeat stuff they read. Some health care professionals are guiltyof this, too, and many tell their patients to avoid all soy products because of thesekind of reasons. Soy wrecks your immune system. Tofu wrecks your brain. Soy turns boys intohomosexuals. Soy may cause cancer and brain damage. High soy diets during pregnancy andnursing can cause developmental changes in children. Soy can cause severe allergic reactions.Soy supplements fail to help menopause. Pregnant
women should totally avoid all soy products.Soy can lead to kidney stones, except it goes on and on.You need to be careful. Tofu is, in fact, a very healthy soy product if it's been madeproperly and it's not genetically modified. Every 100 grams of tofu will contain around35 to 50 milligrams of stuff called isoflavones. These are basically very healthy nutritionalfactor found in a soybean. There are different kinds of isoflavones and genistein and daidzeinare the two main ones. It's been proven through research that the isoflavones have a verybeneficial effect for women and for men, particularly people at my age like 50 plus. With men weknow that guys who tend to consume soy and
have tofu regularly have a much lower riskof prostate cancer. We also know that people who regularly consume soy, including tofuand soy milk, have lower rates of heart disease. Your bad cholesterol will be pulled out ofthe body and the good cholesterol, the HDL, will go up. We also know that isoflavonesare very good to prevent osteoporosis. My belief with soy has been very malignedbecause when soy became popular in the US in the 80s, there were very powerful antisoycampaigns start to put in place by the dairy company. You think about it. It makes sense.You come in with a competitive product and your sales are declining it's easy to createa smear campaign. A bit like what's happening
Is Soy Milk OK On The Candida Diet
Greetings. Eric Bakker, naturopath from NewZealand. Thanks for tuning in. Is soy milk okay on the Candida diet? I think it's perfectlyokay providing you get a nongenetically modified soy product. Soy tends to men and women asthey get a little bit older. I was just going to read something out of my Candida Crusherbook here. People with the longest lifespan on earthcurrently live in Okinawa, Japan and they consume on average of 60 to 120 grams of soyprotein every day. Okinawans have up to 80 percent less cancer and heart disease thanwesterners. Chinese people eat on average 30 to 50 grams of soy protein daily. In Japanand China where the highest soy consumption
appears to have no fertility issues at all.A lot of people say soy can create infertility. It's not true.Soy is bad for my thyroid. Some people say to me, quot;I can't drink soy milk because mynaturopath or said it would trash my thyroid gland.quot; In Asian countries where soyconsumption is between 50 to 100 times higher than in the western world, there is no higheroccurrence of hypothyroidism at all. A big reason why this is is because these enlightenedpeople eat seaweed which has got natural sources of iodine and minerals in it.Women living in the western world eat no sea vegetables and have a 40 percent chance ofhypothyroidism. They tend to eat foods depleted
in essential minerals and have a high stresslifestyle, often lacking in the five essentials minerals like zinc, iodine, selenium, manganese,copper and a lot more. The bottom line is if you eat soy products then be sure alsoto include some sea vegetables in your diet. Have some kelp or make sure you eat some kindof sea vegetable or seaweed. Because research has shown that most countries where peopleeat soy products like tofu or drink soy milk regularly have seaweed. No one talks aboutthis stuff on the internet. Don't drink soy. Your testicles will drop off or you'll growbreasts if you're a male. Avoid it. It's toxic. What a load of bullshit. I don't really buyinto this anymore. I get quite annoyed when
I read this religious fanaticism about diet.Soy milk is excellent for many women in their 50s. It contains a high amount of isoflavones,which is a naturally occurring form that in the body mimics an estrogen, which many womenare deficient in when they get to that age. But will it make breast cancer? No, it willnot breast cancer because estrogen is thousands of times stronger than isoflavones. Isoflavonesin soy products can help people with flagging estrogen levels. And with guys, it can tendto offset the bad form of testosterone responsible for prostate cancer. Drinking soy milk, onecup per day for most males my age plus is also used to help reduce the risk of prostatecancer. Remember also, it contains the isoflavones
genistein and dianazene, which are fantasticto help stop osteoporosis. I love soy milk. I think it's a great foodto have. Poor it on top of some rolled oats in the morning. It's really nice. Reducesbad cholesterol; increases good cholesterol. It contains many, many more times calciumthan cow's milk, so it's actually a very healthy food to have a regular amount when you getto 50 plus. Less benefits having isoflavones when you're younger, but it will not turnboys into homosexuals. Unlike some people think it will.Am I a fan of soy milk? Yes, I am. Providing it's sugar free and it's nongenetically modified.I am a fan of it particularly for older people.
