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.

Apple Cider Vinegar For Yeast Infection Is Apple Cider Vinegar Good For Candida
Greetings. Eric Bakker, naturopath from NewZealand, author of Candida Crusher, formulator of the Canxida range of dietary supplements.Thanks for checking out my tutorial. A question I get asked from time to time is quot;Eric, isapple cider vinegar any good for people with yeast infections?quot; It is. It is very good.But listen up; it's very important for you to get the right kind of apple cider vinegar.Braggs makes quite a good apple cider vinegar. It's a raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar.We have a really nice one here in New Zealand and the brand is called Coral Tree, and it'sactually made from apples fermented in oak barrels from biodynamically grown apples.Organics are here. Biodynamics are just a
little bit higher than organic, so they'revery, very high quality products when you buy the Demeter certified, which is a funnylittle sort of peanut shape character. The Demeter, I think they call it, certificationfor biodynamic is an extremely high standard. If you can get a biodynamically certified,beautiful quality apple cider vinegar, which is naturally fermented in a wooden barrel,you've got a really good product. This is a fermented food or otherwise knownas cultured. These foods like the cider vinegar are okay for a Candida yeast infection internallyand externally. Keep away from commercialized, mass produced apple cider vinegars in supermarketsin plastic bottles. They're junk. Just keep
away from that sort of crap. It's the samewith olives and pickles and crap like that from supermarkets that's been commerciallyfermented in lye or just in cheap sort of waters with chemicals added. I hate oliveslike that. I prefer to buy olives from those big buckets at the Greek or Italian shopsquot;the way that mama used to make itquot; a long time ago. When you're looking at foods thathave been preserved according to techniques that have been going on for hundreds and hundredsof years, you're usually getting a better quality product than something that comesfrom a factory using a lot of white sugar, which is usually a junk product.Vinegar has had a bad rap for a long time
with Candida, but a good quality fermentedapple cider vinegar, there's nothing wrong with it at all. It's great to use as a vaginaldouche. Guys can use it for a jock itch rinse. You can soak your feet in apple cider vinegar.You can wash different parts of your body if you've got fungal infections. You can useit on psoriasis. You can use it on your scalp, flaky scalp, dandruff. You can soak your toenailsin straight apple cider vinegar. So there are many applications.It's also really good for your stomach. It can create some burning sensations if youtake it too strong, so you might need to dilute it down. I've also had a patient a while agowith a very itchy rectal area, he got incredible
relief by using enemas with cider vinegarand water. He said the itch went away within a week. It disappeared. So for itching hemorrhoidsit can be used. It can be used for many different applications.Yes, apple cider vinegar is good to take internally also. Small amounts. You might want to putone or two teaspoons of a good quality, organically fermented and made apple cider vinegar ina glass of water. You can have small sips of that with certain types of foods like highprotein to help you digest protein better. Don't be afraid of having a good quality applecider vinegar like Braggs regularly if you've got Candida. Don't go too crazy on the doseto start with. Go very slow and see how you
go.I hope that answers your questions. Thanks for the question.
