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.

Candida Mouth And Throat Yeast Infections Oral Yeast Infections
Greetings there. It's New Zealand naturopath,Eric Bakker. Author of Candida Crusher, formulator of the Canxida range of products. Thanks fortuning into my tutorial. I really appreciate it. Thank you all the people who've subscribedto my channel. There are many subscribers coming on board now from many different partsof the world. I keep getting lots of increasing comments on YouTube and I'm getting lots ofemail. So just please be aware that I can't really reply to all of the emails I get. Iget tons of emails. Occasionally, I'll pick out an email and I'll respond to it, but thereare many emails I just can't reply to anymore. My priority obviously goes to the patientswho see me in the , on Skype or Face
Time. They take up the share of my work. Itry to communicate with people really effectively through the YouTube channel.I've got a question here from a man in Missouri, America. This man's name is Johnathan Wainright.Johnathan's in his 60s and he wears dentures. Johnathan is asking me about mouth yeast infections.What can he do? Let's talk about mouth and throat yeast infections with this tutorial. I'llgive you some understanding on a little bit on what to do and some of the best possiblesolutions for it. I'm going to read some out of my book and I'll also talk along with thatas well. To reduce your chances of developing and maintaining a mouth or throat yeast infection,I highly recommend you follow these 10 rules.
You'll notice that quite a few dietary andlifestyle recommendations are based on the fact that oral and throat yeast infectionswill thrive in an environment that is warm, dark, moist and is fed on sugars and yeastyfoods. Sometimes also pharmaceutical drugs as we'll see can affect the mucosa.Knowing this, think about excellent oral hygiene, take away the food supply for the yeast, sotake the sugars away. Make it more hostile for the yeast to really thrive in the areaand keep the area clean. It's also pleasant for people around you if you haven't got likea stinky breath, but you've got like a sweet smelling breath. When you've got a good amountof lactic acid and beneficial bacteria in
your mouth, you'll have a breath that smellsquite okay. Sweet smelling breath. It won't be stinky. There's nothing worse than beingnear someone whose mouth smells really like a public toilet or something, and believeme, there are some stinky breaths out there. I know. I've had a few people over the years.This may be part of the reason why I like Skype because I can't really smell that muchon Skype. I'm not saying that all you guys have stinky breath out there. But if you havegot a smell, bad breath or what we call halitosis, a medical term, sometimes you won't even knowit yourself. Do not be afraid to ask people around you if your breath stinks because itcan be quite offensive and embarrassing for
you if you don't know.Number one, observe good oral hygiene. It makes good sense to observe very good oralhygiene since this is the entry to the digestive tract. I recommend that you rinse your mouthfirst and then brush your teeth. You can floss it, but gently. Be careful not to floss toohard because you can really damage the gums. I use a tea tree oil toothpaste, but you canalso use a bit of baking soda with water or a bit of sea salt or you can use a commercialtoothpaste, but try to get more of a natural one without too many chemicals in it. Thebest time to brush your tongue is when you brush your teeth in the morning. Bacteriaand yeast will multiply more on the tongue
overnight than during the day. You may beable to find a good herbal mouthwash at your local health food shop as well. Be carefulwith the commercial mouthwashes high in alcohol because they can destroy a lot of the beneficialbacteria in your mouth. Not a good idea. To avoid reinfecting yourself when brushingyour teeth, try disinfecting your toothbrush regularly by placing the toothbrush in a littlebit of hydrogen peroxide for a few minutes before and after tooth brushing. This is especiallyrelevant if you have gum disease, if you've got a lot of white coating on your tongue.It's important to keep your toothbrush clean. A couple of points I'd like to explain toyou also with teeth. Many people spend a lot
Is Oral Thrush Caused By Me Giving Oral Sex While I Have A Yeast Infection
Hi there, Eric Bakker, naturopath with a frequentlyasked question regarding yeast infections. I'm not sure how to answer this one. Is oral thrush caused by giving me oral sexwhile I have the yeast infection? I have certainly seen people with yeast infectionsengaging in oral sex passing Candida from one person to another. This is definitelypossible, so you need to take particular care as a female if you have vaginal thrush andyou're engaging in oral sex with your partner that you don't transmit or move the Candidainfection. It can certainly occur, I've seen this occur whether it's anal sex or oral sexor whatever sex, you can move Candida around
this way, so good hygiene needs to be understoodand precautions need to be taken. A key area I often find is males who are uncircumcisedcan much more easily develop a yeast infection there of the penis than males who are circumcised.You can understand this because the yeast will get underneath the skin and not all menare that good with hygiene, so it's certainly good to take precautions and to be very goodwith hygiene to stop what I call passing the parcel from one to another. This goes the same with sharing sex toys andthings like that, vibrators, whatever you want to use. You need to take proper precautionsand use good hygiene. Hydrogen peroxide can
be good to clean and so can water solubletea tree oil. These are all good ways to help clean and prevent a cross infection. So to answer your question, oral sex can certainlyhelp to move a yeast infection around from one person to another. Thank you.
