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.

What Is The Tongue Test For Candida
I'm going to talk about another home testtoday, which a lot of you might be familiar with. I call it the tongue test. So have a look at your tongue in the mirrorand have a look. It should be a nice pinkish color all around the front and the middleand the back and the sides. This indicates a good digestive system with healthy levelsof bacteria. So a tongue that's quite whitish coated andparticularly at the back of the tongue. If it's real yellow coating or a really darksort of white or brown color coating, it means usually a heavy amount of bad bacterial andfungal problems in the bowel, particularly
the lower part. So the more towards the frontof the tongue, the higher up the digestion. The more towards the back, the lower the digestion. In Chinese medicine they worked this out thousandsof years ago. The sides of the tongue represent the liver. The tip of the tongue representsthe stomach. The middle part of the tongue represents the small intestine. And the backof the tongue represents the colon or the large intestine. So a healthy tongue shouldbe pink. Look at a dog or a cat's tongue; they're generallypink. We don't have a lot of white coating on the tongue of a dog unless you're goingto feed it a lot of crap food. But adults
often have these white coatings because ofsugar in their diet, so sugar feeds up the bad bacterial and fungal problems and, hence,we get this dysbiosis occurring and we get this white coating. The white coating is agood indication on the level of intestinal overgrowth or bad bacterial and fungal infection. As you go through the Candida Crusher program,your tongue will get more pink and more pink and eventually a beautiful pink color justlike your dog. Keep an eye on that and do that test weeklyand then write that down in the column of the home symptom tracker that you'll findin my book. This is a very good test to do
in conjunction with the smell test, the itchtest, the spit test, the sound test, and all the other tests that I recommend. Check out my other YouTube clips on all theseother home tests and you should really do them all once a week. This will give you avery good indication on your level of Candida in the privacy of your own home and no costat all, so definitely worth doing in that case. Thanks for tuning in.
Is Spit Test For Candida Reliable To Determine Candida Overgrowth
Greetings. New Zealand naturopath, Eric Bakker.I'm the author of Candida Crusher and the formulator of the Canxida range of supplements.Thanks for checking out my tutorial. I've got a question here from Edward Caper in Poland.Edward is saying, quot;Eric is the yeast spit test reliable? Is the spit test a reliableindication for Candida?quot; Let's talk a little bit about that right now. About if it's good,if it's trash. Because some people online say it's junk. Other people say it's good.I've written about the spit test in my book. The spit test is not exactly perfect or bonafidescience. But what I can tell you is what I've found from the spit test with a lot of patients,thousands of patients I've seen over the years,
it's a very good general indicator of overalloral and digestive health. You can't say if you do the spit test andyou see strings or mucous hanging there in a glass of water first thing in the morningthat you've got a bonafide case of Candida. That's crap. But what you can say is you'vegot problems, and those problems need addressing because healthy people don't have that. They'lltend to have things floating on the top of the water rather than hanging down or havingparticles in the bottom of the glass. In most all cases of extremely healthy peopleI've seen, they don't have a lot of mucous in their mouth. They don't cough up mucous.They haven't got mucous in their nasopharyngeal
region. Mucous can be a sure sign that's somethingswrong with your digestion. It can be an allergy. It could be a problem with your pancreas.You're not producing enough enzymes in the mouth. You can have gut issues. Many, manydifferent reasons why you can have mucous. Mucous is a great breeding ground for bacteria,but it also can mean if you've got bacteria, that Candida may not necessarily be foundbehind. There's a relationship of dysbiosis, in general, and food allergies and the spittest. So if you're positive for the spit test, youneed to clean up your diet, improve your digestion, get the right kind of bugs into your digestivesystem, make sure you observe very good oral
health, tongue brushing, brush your teethtwice a day. I tend to use sea salt or baking soda, but also I like using tea tree oil andlook after the gums rather than the teeth. Good oral hygiene is very, very important.Because if you keep this clean, it's going to keep stuff further down clean as well.It's often been said that the mouth and the anus are the two dirtiest parts of the body.It's not a good thing to say, but it's a fact. The spit test is not a reliable indicationof Candida as such. You may have read about the different types of home tests I recommendin my book. There's the smell test, the taste test, the itch test, these are all differentkinds of tests that will give you an indication
if you've got a yeast infection when you putthem all together. No single test is good. The only test that I find is really good andaccurate is a very comprehensive stool test when done properly. When done properly, it'sa very accurate indication of a yeast infection in the gut. Not necessarily systemically,but definitely in the gut. There are other ways we can pick up if you've got a systemicyeast infection. Just to summarize your question, Edward. quot;Isthe spit test a reliable indication for Candida?quot; No. It's not. You've got to use it in conjunctionwith other kinds of test. But what I do like, again, just to finish up on. You can use itas a yardstick, as an indicator for improving
health. So if it comes back cleaner and cleanerover a period of time, you know that you've taken potential allergenic food out of thediet or you've cleared up a potential food intolerance. You've reduced the amount oforal bacteria and your health is going to pick up. I hope that answers your question.Thank you.
