Acupuncture Is a successful Yeast Infection Treatment
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 alongâ€¦ 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, andâ€¦ 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 Treat DiaperYeast Rash
Hey everyone, I am here today to do a tutorial for you on how to treat a diaper rash. I will be covering two types of diaper rashes. The inevitable regular diaper rash that almost every baby will get at some point, and the dreaded yeast diaper rash. Emilia is six months old now,
and I would say up until around the four and a half month mark, I was definitely a Pamper's mommy. Around that time, I started getting really concerned on how often she was getting diaper rashes, and if there wasn't a diaper rash, there was usually some sort of red irritation.
So I started to do research and I was horrified at how many chemicals are in baby products. That is the time that I discovered The Honest Company. The key to preventing and treating a diaperrash is to create a barrier. Before we used The Honest Company,
I would use Desitin and baby powder at every diaper change. Since we have switched brands, now I use The Honest Company's Organic HealingBalm. They do have a diaper rash cream but I prefer the Organic Healing Balm because it serves multiple purposes. We use it for the diaper changes,
cuts, scratches, I use it, it's awesome. I highly recommened it. This is a shot of it. It is pH balanced, hypoallerginic, and plantbased. I cannot say enough good things about this company. I will have a link down below so you can check it out
if it's something that you're interested in. Which brings us to the dreaded yeast diaper rash!!! Luckily, my mother had some tips for me so it saved me a trip to the pediatrician. You can go to any drugstore or pharmacy, and you are looking for an antifungal cream.
Is Diaper Rash Candida
Thanks for tuning in. Is diaper rash Candida?Do babies get yeast infections? Of course they do. Babies get yeast infections quitea lot. If you think about the diaper how it sits there around the baby's backside andgenital region, it's all sort of contained there with moisture and the heat; it's a perfectbreeding ground for yeast. Yeast is very common with children. They oftenget oral thrush and they also get diaper rash, too. The way to get rid of that really isto make sure the diaper is changed frequently. If it's quite a severe irritation around thearea, I recommend that you change a diaper much more regularly using cotton diapers fora while, is quite a good idea. Other people
disagree. They say that the disposables arebetter because they wick the water or take it more away from the skin. The choice isyours really, but the thing is to keep the area dry and clean and frequent changes.There are different antifungal powders you can use, natural ones you can get from thehealth food shop as well. Sunlight exposure is another good idea. A bit of calendula creamon the area is going to help as well, but the main thing is dryness and cleanliness.Also look at the diet of the baby because you may be giving the infant a formula containinga lot of sugar, so many formulas contain large amounts of sugar. And if you find that tobe a problem, you might want to switch formulas.
You may want to use goat's milk, for example.Just check the sugar content if you're using any powders, and if you're breastfeeding,also make sure that you yourself have not got a diet high in sugars that can contributeto that. Have more fats in the diet if you're breastfeeding.Avocados are very good breastfeeding food. Tahini, which is a ground sesame seed paste.Various oils in your diet. Maybe some flax seed oil is going to help a lot, too. Alsofish like sardines or tuna with some fats in them. These things are very good for fortifyingthe breast milk up. So just be careful what the baby is beingfed, number one; and number two, make sure
the diaper is changed frequently and a bitof sunlight exposure onto the area. These are all things that are going to help to overcomethis diaper rash, and diaper rash is usually fungal in origin.So I hope that answers your question. Thank you.
