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.

Reversing Type 2 diabetes starts with ignoring the guidelines Sarah Hallberg TEDxPurdueU
I have the best job in the world. I'm a . No! Believe me that's not why. I'm an obesity . I have the honor of workingwith the group of people subject to the last widelyaccepted prejudice: being fat. These people have suffered a lotby the time they see me: shame, guilt, blameand outright discrimination.
The attitude that many take,including those in healthcare, is that these peopleare to blame for their situation. If they could just control themselves,they wouldn't be overweight, and they are not motivated to change. Please let me tell youthis is not the case. The blame, if we've gotto extend some here, has been with our advice. And it's time we change that.
Obesity is a disease, it's not somethingcreated by lack of character. It's a hormonal disease,and there are many hormones involved. And one of the main onesis a hormone called insulin. Most obese individualsare resistant to this hormone, insulin. So, what does that mean exactly,to be resistant to insulin? Well, insulin resistance is essentiallya state of prepretype 2 diabetes. Insulin's job is to drive glucose,or blood sugar, into the cells where it can be used.
In a nutshell, when someoneis insulin resistant, they are having troublegetting blood sugar where it needs to go, into those cells. And it just can't hangoutin the blood after we eat or we would all have a diabetic crisisafter every meal! So, when someone is resistant to insulin, the body's response to thisis to just make more of it. And insulin levels will rise and rise,
and for a while, years even,this is going to keep up, and blood sugar levels can remain normal. However, usually it can't keep up forever, and even those elevated levels of insulin are not enough to keep blood sugarin the normal range. So it starts to rise. That's diabetes. It probably won't surprise you to hear
that most of my patientshave insulin resistance or diabetes. And if you are sitting there thinking,quot;Phew, that's not me,quot; you actually might want to think again, because almost 50% of adult Americansnow have diabetes or prediabetes. That is almost 120 million of us. But that's hardly everyonewho has issues with insulin. Because as I was saying, people have elevated insulin levelsdue to insulin resistance
What Is The Best Diet To Treat Helicobacter Pylori
Greetings. Welcome back. It's Eric Bakker,naturopath from New Zealand, author of Candida Crusher and formulator of the Canxida rangeof dietary supplements. This is another tutorial in this series of helicobacter. We just didone previously on helicobacter treatment. How to treat naturally. We've done other tutorialson how to prevent getting it, risk factors, testing, diagnosing, the causes, all thatsort of stuff, so this is a whole series on H. pylori. If you just come in and watch thetutorial, please be sure to watch the other tutorials as well.We spoke briefly about the diet in the previous tutorial, natural treatment. I've just spenta good half an hour looking at different blog
sites on helicobacter treatment, the bestdiet, and some of the information I've seen is just crap. It's just absolute junk. I don'tknow how people can put this stuff up on the internet. One website actually said it's perfectlyokay to drink a little bit of beer if you've got helicobacter. Another website said thatyou can eat copious amounts of fruits. Is it any wonder people get all screwed up andthey come to me and they read all this ridiculous advice? There are so many people out therewho think they know about helicobacter, but how many patients have they actually treatedwith this condition. How many people have they spoken to who actually treat this conditionfor 3040 years, a long time?
Some of the colleagues I have, have been treatinghelicobacter since the moment it was discovered, right back in the ï¿½80s and they've beenlooking at the best ways of eradicating it. The information I'm going to share with youon this tutorial is quite important and it's based on my experience with helicobacter forover 20 years. But also experiences that I have learned and knowledge I've gained frompeople that have been in the business a lot longer than me.There is no clearly defined diet for helicobacter pylori. Let's just get that right at the start.There is no like magic diet that's going to cure it. As I mentioned over and again inmy previous tutorials, you will not cure helicobacter
with a pill alone. You need to work with adiet plan, so you need to eat certain kinds of foods that are conducive towards buildingyou up. The most important thing that I explain at the beginning is with helicobacter foodor choices. You need to obviously avoid the foods that are aggravating you the most. Thefoods that make you feel sick in any way, you need to push them aside, and I want youto be intelligent about this. In fact, get a piece of paper and write all the foods youlike to eat on a list. A pad like this, you write down all the foodshere. Write them all down. And then what you doï¿½all the foods, cucumber, Budweiser beer,Hersey's chocolate, Xanax pills, I'm being
facetious here, Kentucky Fried Chicken. Ifyou do like treats or naughty foods or take away or anything like that, just write thatall down, too. Every single thing that you eat. It's good if you can break down intodifferent vegetables as well. You should only come up maybe with one or two pieces of paper.What you do then is a column on the right, you draw a line down it. And then what youneed to do is write 1, 2 or 3 in that column by each food. For example, 1 means you'refine with that food; 2 means it might give you a little bit of trouble; 3 means thatquot;Wow, I can't touch this. I'm getting a lot of problems with this food.quot;Garlic, for example, could make you feel like
a 3 and feel terrible. Cucumber could makeyou feel like a 3. Bell peppers or capsaicin could make you feel like a 3. Potatoes couldmake you feel like a 1, no problem. This is a very smart thing to do. Very smart. Becauseif you put the date on this and put all the foods down and grade them on severity on howthey make you feel from 1 to 3, any way you want to grade, 1 through 10. I don't carehow you grade it. This is smart because now you've got a baseline. Now you know how yourdiet or the foods that you're eating are affecting you. Because what you're going to find outin 6 or 12 months from now with treatment is it won't be the same. Some of the foodsthat are making you feel like crap, in six
