Candida Case Study 16 Jill With Endometriosis
Another case presentation. Interesting onehere. We've got a 22yearold lady called Jill, and Jill presented with endometriosis,a shocking condition. I'm going to talk a little bit about it from my book and thengive you some explanation about the case. I first saw Jill when she was about threeyears of age. Her mother brought her in with eczema, an itchy skin condition. Jill wasbreastfed for about a week and her mother was too tired and stressed with her otheryounger children to breastfeed, and placed Jill on a cow's milk formula.Jill had already been prescribed a few rounds of broadspectrum antibiotics by the timeshe was three. She presented with dark circles
under her eyes, was lethargic, and had multipleskin lesions up her arms and on her torso, legs, and it was scratched raw. We successfullytreated the skin complaints with diet change and a special probiotic.I saw Jill when she was 15 years of age, but this time she had post viral fatigue. It wouldhave been Epstein Barr virus. Jill was very tired, complained of headaches, and fallingasleep at school. Her mom had taken her to the where she received more antibiotics,all to no avail. She had menstrual cramps and breakouts of vaginal yeast infectionsat this stage. I then saw Jill last year when she was 21.This time she presented with endometriosis,
which her had diagnosed the year before.Jill had come to me concerned about her fertility, as she had just become engaged and she wasgetting regular urinary tract infections as well. She had undergone surgery to removeseveral cysts and had experienced lowgrade pelvic pain since. This time we placed Jillon the Candida Crusher program, and the results have been fantastic. We've had no more bowelproblems or urinary problems. There's a million Jill's out there. If you'vegot endometriosis and you're a lady watching this right now, I want you to sit back andlisten. Did you have vaginal yeast infections prior to having endometriosis? Did you usediflucan or fluconazole? Do you use applicators
like Canesten? Did you use any creams or productsfrom the pharmacy to cure this problem? You've probably driven the condition back in thevaginal area into the endometrium. It's not uncommon. It happens all the time.Endometriosis is an inflammation of the lining of the endometrium, and it usually comes fromsome kind of irritant inside there. There are different theories on endo. Some peoplecall it the retrograde menstruation theory where they think menstrual fluids have goneback through the cervix internally and caused it. Other people call it an autoimmune condition.I call it a yeast infection gone wrong, or a bacterial infection like bacterial vaginosis,which is even more common than Candida. But
conditions of endo often have had an originwith Candida parapsilosis or Candida albicans or another Candida species that's basicallygot caught in the endometrium and the immune system has started to go crazy and haywireand started to really develop inflammation internally.Take heed. If you've got thrush, you need to nail this thrush. You need to crush thethrush. You get rid of this damn thing and get rid of it. Don't use applicators. Don'tgo and fall for the 's line that you'll go on an antifungal drug. It's crap! It doesn'twork. I've treated too many women out there who've used these drugs recurrently, and ithas come at a cost. I've seen many women with
infertility. Many women over the years thathad vaginal thrush and they never really got rid of it.If you get recurring urinary tract infections, you need to get your immune system strong.No booze. No smoking. No refined carbohydrates or crap food. Drinking plenty of water. Yourimmune system needs to be made strong. Immune system weakness often occurs with stress.I see stress quite commonly in 21yearold girls like this because they're living awayfrom mom and dad. They're flatting or they've got a mortgage, a new career, a boyfriend,or something. There's some kind of stress underpinning it. Usually, if you dig deep,you'll always find something.
Home Remedies for Vaginal Thrush
Home Remedies for Vaginal Thrush1. Yogurt Yogurt contains good bacteria or probioticsand thus helps maintain the proper balance of good bacteria to keep yeast from overgrowing. In a 2006 research review published in theJournal of Antimicrobial Chemotherapy, experts found that some probiotics, especially L.acidophilus, L. rhamnosus GR1 and L. fermentum RC14 may be effective against candida. However, more randomized, doubleblind, placebocontrolledtrials with a larger sample size should be
carried out for a proper conclusion. Dip a tampon in yogurt and insert it in thevagina for 2 hours. After removing it, clean the area with lukewarmwater and pat dry thoroughly. Do this twice a day. Also, include yogurt containing live culturesin your diet. You can also opt to take probiotic supplementsafter consulting your . Note: For treating a yeast infection, onlyuse plain, unsweetened yogurt. Any sweetened yogurt will only worsen thecondition.
2. Coconut Oil Coconut oil stands out as a natural remedyfor vaginal thrush. It has effective antifungal properties thatcan kill the fungi responsible for yeast infections. A 2007 study published in the Journal of MedicinalFood analyzed the effectiveness of coconut oil against a range of fungal organisms andfound that the oilï¿½s mediumchain fats were effective at killing 52 types of candida species. Directly apply extravirgin coconut oil topicallyon the affected area, 2 or 3 times a day until
you see improvement. You can also include it in your daily diet. Start with 1 teaspoon of extravirgin coconutoil daily and gradually increase the dosage to up to 3 tablespoons per day. 3. Apple Cider Vinegar The natural enzymes in apple cider vinegarhelp regulate the pH of the vagina, which in turn helps prevent yeast growth.
Additionally, it is known to boost immunityand good bacteria in the gut and vagina, which helps in preventing as well as treating vaginalthrush. Plus, apple cider vinegar has malic acid containingantiviral, antibacterial and antifungal properties. Add 3 tablespoons of raw, unfiltered applecider vinegar to 2 cups of warm water. Use this solution to wash the vaginal area,2 times a day until you notice improvement in your condition. Combine equal amounts of apple cider vinegarand water. Soak a tampon in the solution and insert itinto the vagina for 10 to 15 minutes.
Remove the tampon, wash the area with warmwater and then wipe the area until it is completely dry. Repeat once daily until the infection heals. Another option is to fill your bathtub withwarm water.
