Text on screen: Acupuncture How to Eliminate Yeast Infections, Thrush, and other CandidiasisRelated Conditions from Your Life Forever Chapter Two: What is Acupuncture How does it work to treat yeast infections? NANCY ANANDA STEVENSON: Do you know what acupuncture does? Do you know anything about the history of acupuncture? FAITH: A little bit. I mean, I know that it has to do with energy and you have to have needles put in your body in different places. NANCY ANANDA STEVENSON: It's an ancient art, but it's a science and it's very, very effective. The way it works is by, of course, placing metallic needles in the body. And we are a body electric; we're an electromagnetic being. And these needles send signals through the body and it basically awakens a natural blueprint that your body has innately and your body knows. And so, the needles effectively help you to connect with the part of you that is your natural healer, that knows the balance, that knows how things function.

And each needle is placed in a particular point that has, actually, a spirit name. And so when we take a history, when we think about how we are going to approach this patient, it's unique to the patient in that we think about these spirit names and how this patient has been fractured or hurt or on a physical level has pain in a certain area of the body. And so at that point we know where to place those needles, and that is what your body needs in order to reconnect with the natural blueprint that you were innately born with. FAITH: OK. And how young can a person start receiving acupuncture? NANCY ANANDA STEVENSON: Oh, you know. Sometimes babies can run fevers. I've certainly treated a lot of babies. Children can get very sick in life and acupuncture's very effective for pediatrics. Through puberty, the stress level today in the children and the teenagers is very high, and I certainly treat a lot of teenagers very effectively. FAITH: So, you talk about being a; connecting everything, so somewhere along the way there was a disconnect because of situations along… NANCY ANANDA STEVENSON: Stress; 99 percent of all illness is stress. So some level of stress got into that person, into yourself or anyone that's just displaying symptoms or has a disease state. FAITH: So, again, would part of this also be learning to manage your stress along with, or reduce your stress along with the acupuncture?

NANCY ANANDA STEVENSON: Sure, absolutely. Sometimes the stress even belonged to someone you were with: a boss or a parent, and you take it on. So of course, yes. Do you have any questions about how acupuncture works, or do you know about it? FAITH: Actually, I just know that there are needles and, I mean, I've heard some people say it doesn't hurt. Some of them say there's a little sting, you know. But then they say it's all over the body at different places for different problems. So, yeah, I'm a little nervous about how it's gonna feel, and… NANCY ANANDA STEVENSON: Well, here in California we're welltrained. You know, it's six years of school to get the license. And we have a ; we see a lot of women that come into our . So, yeast infection is commonly treated by acupuncturists so we have a lot of experience with that. And as for the acupuncture needles being something that you might be uncomfortable with, they're very thin; they're the size of a hair. And when we insert them we usually use guide tubes, so it's really relatively painless. The one thing that you do feel is you'll feel a distending, kinda achy feeling when we get what we call chi at the end of the needle. And we need to do that in order to move the channel energy, which is basically what's going on with acupuncture is that we're inserting needles in the body related to the nervous system but not entirely part of the nervous system.

And what happens is it's like catching a fish on the line when you're out fishing; you feel that tug, initially. You'll feel that after I insert the needle. You'll feel kind of a distending. FAITH: Will it be pain? So it won't be, really, pain? NANCY ANANDA STEVENSON: It's different. You have to educate yourself. At first, it will be unfamiliar. So you might want to rush into thinking that, quot;Oh, is this painful? Well, no, actually, no.quot; So you know, you get used to it. And it's kind of an achy feeling. And that's what we want. If we don't get that, we're not really giving a treatment that can be as effective as if we do get that. And sometimes some needles are more guide needles so we need to get the chi effect at that needle more than, say, another needle. FAITH: How deep does it go? Is each one different? NANCY ANANDA STEVENSON: Every situation calls for a different, kind of, sized needle maybe a different depth, so we're going to put them in in a way where they don't even break blood vessels. Because they're rounded at the tip, they aren't pointed like a hypodermic needle, so when they are inserted it usually pushes everything out of the way in the way that we insert them.

FAITH: And how long for each treatment? NANCY ANANDA STEVENSON: About 45 minutes. Sometimes we retain the needles for 30 minutes, but usually about 45 minutes. And we try to use as few as possible, so, you know, we don't put a lot of needles in. Maybe six to eight. That's about it. FAITH: OK. I do have a question: Why do the overthecounter treatments. Why, in your opinion, or your expert opinion, do they; have they not worked? And do they work for some women? NANCY ANANDA STEVENSON:Well, I think that they do work for some women. Some women just have; they can have an issue where, you know, they just got married and quot;honeymoon syndromequot; or something. Or, you know, they took antibiotics and they never really took antibiotics and they developed a yeast infection. Some women go on birth control pills and birth control pills are something they're not used to and they develop one. There can be varying reasons. Maybe it's very hot and they're wearing the wrong kind of underwear, you know; there can just be a lot of issues. And so for somebody with a chronic one, it's usually more of a systemic problem and it's related to stress and it can be kind of a psychoemotional issue or it also can be just the way somebody is just operating their life and they might have more of a sympathetic reaction to life.

How To Test For Candida Yeast Infection

Hi there, Eric Bakker, author of Candida Crusher.Thank you for tuning into this YouTube tutorial today. Today, I'd like to talk to you a littlebit about testing for Candida yeast infections. Many patients who come to see me want to knowwhether they have an infection or not. They go to their or they go to their naturopathand they're told that they've got all these problems, but then they reply, What are theseproblems? Can we do a test for these problems? What are they? So the medical willhave a few tests that he or she may perform, but not many patients with Candida yeast infectionsare really tested when they go to their medical . If the suspects a vaginal yeastinfection or thrush, then he or she may perform

a test, a smear test, to determine that, andthat will be sent away and those cells will be checked out. They'll be cultured. They'llgo to a special lab to see whether it's bacterial vaginosis or a yeast infection. But generally, a won't test any furtherthan that in terms of digestive problems or inflammation or brain fog or any of the othersubtle signs and symptoms of a yeast infection. The patient may be given a digestive product,maybe an acid blocker. They may be given a sleeping pill or an antiinflammatory, butI don't usually find that medical s will test any further than perhaps doing avaginal check. Or maybe in some cases with

a male, they may do a skin scraping of a particulararea and then get that checked. The issue I have with the medical test to determineyeast infections and many other health conditions are that they are defined more by statisticalnorms rather than physiological norms. By that, I mean they really work on a slidingscale from say 1 to 10. If you come back as 1.5 in the bottom end of that reference rangeor 9.5, you're deemed to be perfectly normal. In natural medicine, we don't really lookat it like that. We look more at the physiological norm. We're going to be more interested toget you around four, five, or six, which will be more of a midpoint, which we deem to bea really good range for you to be in. That's

one concern I have is looking at these norms. The other concern I have, really, with themedical testing is if a test comes back positive, it will often lead to the prescription ofa pharmaceutical drug. And in many cases, it will be an antibiotic or antifungal; itwill be an quot;antiquot; type of a drug, which will only create further problems. And if the can diagnose you with any particular test, then he or she may even think that you'vegot depression or anxiety and send you to a psychiatrist. And that's what happened tome. I was told to go to a psychiatrist when Ihad Candida because my problems were all in

my head. Well, they were in my head partiallybecause I had brain fog, but what the didn't know is I had a lot of digestive problemsthat he really should have gone further in looking at. And for that reason, now I doa lot of stool testing, comprehensive digestive stool testing. You're going to see a lot moretutorials on stool testing. I'll explain to you a lot more about the markers and what theymean, and how to interpret this very, very important test. In my book, Candida Crusher, I call the comprehensivestool test the quot;Rolls Roycequot; of tests because you can determine a whole bunch of stuff fromthis test. You can look at digestive markers,

inflammatory markers, and immune markers.It goes on and on and on; there's a whole lot of information that we can acquire fromthis test, which can give us a very accurate indication of the health of your whole digestivesystem. It also shows me where to pinpoint the treatment. It gives me a good idea onthe severity of your condition and how long it's going to take to get well. There are various tests that the andthe naturopath will perform to determine a yeast infection. As I mentioned, the may perform a smear test to determine whether it's vaginal thrush or vaginosis or an STDof some form. A may perform a stool
