Candida vs. Good Health

                    Candida albicans, a parasitic yeast-like fungus or mold which normally exist in the mouth,

                    stomach and vaginas of healthy individuals, may be the cause of many misdiagnosed illnesses

                    and frequent doctors’ visits.

 

                    Candidiasis, also known as a yeast infection, occurs primarily when the body’s immune

                    system is compromised or when our “good” intestinal bacteria, which keep Candida in

                    check, are destroyed. Both situations enable Candida albicans to grow and flourish.

 

                    Other conditions that allow candida to flourish are using of some prescription drugs

                    (especially antibiotics), stress, pregnancy, being overweight, diabetes, psoriasis, and bacterial

                    infections.

 

                    The endotoxins produced by candida have been linked to insomnia, painful joints, fatigue,

                    mood swings, depression, headaches and frequent infections of the ears, nose and throat.

 

                    Candida fighters

                    Goldenseal, a natural antibiotic herb, is a tonic for the female reproductive system and, as an

                    immune system stimulator, is helpful for fighting all infections. The berberine it contains blocks

                    bacterial growth, including Candida albicans.

 

                    Garlic is one of the most potent antimicrobial and antifungal agents known. It was used by

                    Albert Schweitzer to treat amebic dysentery and by Louis Pasteur as an antibacterial. One of

                    the most thoroughly researched and important effects is as an antimicrobial agent. Garlic has

                    demonstrated potent antifungal qualities that are especially active against Candida albicans.

                    Several studies have found it to be more potent than several of the traditional allopathic

                    anti-fungal agents, including Nystatin and Gentian violet. Garlic is one of the richest sources of

                    the element germanium, a potent inducer of interferon and effective against certain cancers by

                    modulating the immune response.

 

                    Like their garlic cousins, onions have been given credit for a lot of medicinal and health

                    benefits. They contain many sulfite compounds similar to those in garlic. These compounds

                    are highly antimicrobial and antifungal making onions ideal for fighting candida.

 

                    Echinacea is an antiseptic and anti-infection herb that helps stimulate the immune system.

                    Scientific research indicates antibiotic activity, cortisone-like activity, promotion of wound

                    healing, production of systemic interferon and stimulation of T-cell lymphocytes.

 

                    A recent German trial found echinacea to be far superior to pharmaceutical treatments for

                    vaginitis (candida infection of the vagina). Researchers found a 60% recurrence of vaginal

                    yeast infection when treated with a pharmaceutical anti-fungal cream but only a 16%

                    recurrence for those given an echinacea supplementation.

 

                    Spice oils are often good fungus fighters, but oregano is king. It kills Candida on contact both

                    internally and topically. As well, it boosts the immune system to help the body fight Candida,

                    parasites and other infections.

 

                    Adding high fiber supplements enhances the effectiveness of candida prevention and

                    treatment programs. Diets low in nutrients and fiber may contribute to Candida overgrowth

                    as they alter the pH of the G.I. tract. This negatively affects the friendly bacteria that thrive in

                    a narrow pH range, but does not inhibit Candida, which proliferates comfortably in a wider

                    range of pH conditions.

 

                    Tea tree oil is helpful in treating topical outbreaks of Candida. It is most useful for hard to

                    treat outbreaks such those occurring vaginally or on the feet.

 

                    Diet and hygiene are keys to any Candida fighting program. In addition to the herbal

                    treatments listed above;

                         Avoid pharmaceutical antibiotics unless absolutely necessary.

                         Avoid chemicals & preservatives wherever possible.

                         Eat pure sugar-free foods.

Suikers komen van nature voor in verschillende voedingsmiddelen. Door het raffineren van grondstoffen krijgen we allerlei voedingsmiddelen die zoveel suikers/koolhydraten kunnen bevatten, dat het spijsverteringskanaal er de kluts van kwijtraakt en er problemen ontstaan, bijv. hypoglykemie en Candidawoekeringen. Onder suikers worden verstaan: kristalsuiker (bietsuiker), rietsuiker, fructose, honing, glucose, tarwestroop, bietsuikerstroop, rietsuikerstroop, melasse(stroop), ahornstroop, maisstroop, rijst(mout)stroop, dextrose, saccharose, maltose, lactose, ook alle zoetstoffen dextrine, saccharine, aspartaam etc. worden door het lichaam als suiker gezien. Bij twijfel of iets al dan niet een suiker is, geldt ... Niet gebruiken !

Geraffineerde produkten, bijv. wit tarwemeel, fijn maismeel, fijn rijstemeel, witbrood, witte pasta etc. worden door het lichaam razendsnel omgezet in suikers.

Na het eten van bovenstaande voedingsmiddelen volgt een snelle stijging van de bloedsuikers: je voelt je prettig. Onmiddelijk daarna produceert de alvleesklier een flinke dosis insuline, om het bloedsuikerpeil met hetzelfde noodtempo weer te laten dalen: je voelt je lang zo lekker niet meer en als een echte "junk" krijg je trek in MEER !
De eerste 1 á 2 weken dat je deze voedingsmiddelen niet meer gebruikt, kun je "ontwenningsverschijnselen" krijgen: slap, slaperig, futloos, snel geïrriteerd, gigantische trek in zoet (ik had steeds visioenen van spekkies en mokkapunten, die ik alletwee verfoei).
Daarna gaat je lichaam mokkend en sputterend energie betrekken uit volwaardige voedingsmiddelen: daar krijgen je weliswaar niet zoveel energie tegelijk van, maar er wordt ook minder insuline afgescheiden, waardoor een regelmatig beeld ontstaat: minder trek in tussendoortjes, meer energie, minder "dips".
Ook gewichtsverlies kan op deze manier gemakkelijker worden bewerkstelligd.

                            From the Rodale book, The Female Body: An

                        Owner's Manual:

 

                        Vagina

 

                        When it comes to human reproduction, the vagina certainly has a great

                        track record. It's where sperm first enter a woman's body to begin working

                        their way through the cervical canal and into the uterus to hook up with an

                        egg and produce life. It's also the route that most of us took into the Great

                        Wide Open, pushing through a canal that during labor and childbirth had expanded to many times its

                        size to accommodate a safe trip.

 

                        The vagina is a place for endings as well. In nonpregnant women, menstrual blood passes through

                        the cervix and vagina, washing away all of the wasted cells that have built up in the lining of the

                        uterus in false anticipation of conception.

 

                        For all of its importance, however, the vagina is a rather unassuming body part: a three-inch-long

                        canal, lined with mucous membrane, that runs from the vulva up to the cervix, which is the neck of

                        the uterus.

 

                                                     How Dry I Am

 

                                It's the female equivalent of impotence. You're in bed with your partner, he's kissing

                                and caressing you all over, and your vaginal area is as dry as year-old bread. He

                                often feels like a failure. And you might, too.

 

                                But rather than indicating lack of arousal, vaginal dryness may be a physical

                                disorder, says Patti Jayne Ross, M.D., associate professor of obstetrics and

                                gynecology at the University of Texas Medical School at Houston. "It can happen

                                before menopause, but it's usually associated with menopause and a decrease in

                                estrogen," she notes. "The skin in the genital area gets thinner, red, irritated and

                                tender."

 

                                Treatment is simple: See your doctor about starting hormone replacement therapy.

                                Either estrogen or progestin, or a combination of both, is given orally, says Dr.

                                Ross.

 

                                Short of hormone replacement therapy, there are still several things you can do if

                                vaginal dryness puts a damper on your sex life. Here are some tips from top docs.

 

                                Pass the jelly. Using an over-the-counter lubricant is a quick and easy way to solve

                                dryness, notes Dr. Ross. K-Y jelly is popular, but that brand can actually cause

                                drying and irritation, she warns. Instead, she recommends a lubricant called

                                Astroglide because it's more like an oil. "I've recommended baby oil to patients,"

                                she says. "But beware if you're using a condom." The problem is that baby oil is

                                petroleum-based and can damage the latex in a condom, making it ineffective.

 

                                E's into it. Vitamin E is another good lubricant, says Eva Arkin, M.D., chief of

                                gynecology at Scottish Rite Hospital in Atlanta. "I tell some people who have

                                dryness on the labia to make a pinhole in a vitamin E capsule and apply it to the

                                labial skin. That works well," she says.

 

                                Check out your pills. Birth control pills can create hormonal changes that affect

                                vaginal secretions, notes Dr. Arkin. "Talk to your physician about possibly raising

                                the estrogen level in your pills," she suggests.

 

                                Don't smoke. Smoking destroys estrogen, which in turn could make the vaginal area

                                less healthy and moist, says Ellen Yankauskas, M.D., director of the Women's

                                Center for Family Health in Atascadero, California. "You would find nicotine in a

                                Pap test if you checked for it. That's how deeply it can penetrate," she says.

 

 

                        The adult vagina usually slopes upward and backward and has muscle and fibrous tissue forming its

                        walls. When it's relaxed, the vagina is about one-half to three-quarters inch around, with the walls

                        touching. Luckily for us, the size isn't steadfast. During pregnancy, changes take place that allow

                        the vagina to do an impressive feat of expansion during labor and childbirth.

 

                        The Discomfort Zone

 

                        Television commercials euphemistically call it feminine itching. You've come to know it as the

                        nagging, burning feeling that you sometimes get in one of your body's hardest-to-reach spots.

 

                        Its official name is vaginitis, and most women are intimately familiar with it. About half of the visits to

                        gynecologists are prompted by this disorder, which is characterized by abnormal vaginal discharge,

                        pain, itching and irritation. If you have vaginitis, intercourse may become painful and you may feel

                        pain when you urinated.

 

                        The working definition of normal secretions is partly related to your menstrual cycle. Secretions turn

                        thick and sticky just before and at the end of your period. As a woman's estrogen level drops after

                        menopause, vaginal cells decrease in size, and the amount of normal vaginal secretion goes down.

 

                        In other words, the amount of secretion or discharge varies. "Everyone is different," notes Patti

                        Jayne Ross, M.D., associate professor of obstetrics and gynecology at the University of Texas

                        Medical School at Houston. "Go by whatever applies to you. Any amount of discharge is normal if

                        it's what you're used to."

 

                        The Beast Infection

 

                        When it comes to pure set-your-teeth-on-edge itching, nothing quite compares with the intensity of a

                        form of vaginitis known as a yeast infection. The vagina is a fertile breeding ground for yeast, says

                        Eva Arkin, M.D., chief of gynecology at Scottish Rite Hospital in Atlanta. "The vagina is the perfect

                        incubator. It's warm, dark, moist and rich in sugars," she notes.

 

                        Candida, a fungus in the yeast family, can be found in the mouth, rectum and vagina. In the vagina,

                        candida starts growing out of control when the balance of normally occurring organisms--the vaginal

                        flora--is somehow disturbed. "Yeast grows because of an upset in bacteria within the vagina and

                        because of a change in vaginal pH," says Dr. Arkin. Often the use of antibiotics or birth control pills

                        starts a mini-epidemic of candida. Yeast is transmitted mainly sexually and sometimes by sharing

                        moist towels.

 

                        The distinct symptoms of candida vaginitis go beyond itching. There is a white, curdy discharge that

                        resembles cottage cheese, along with a yeasty odor and redness in the vagina, the vulva and

                        sometimes even the anus.

 

                        From Yeast to Rest

 

                        If you think you have a yeast infection, your doctor can diagnose you by examining a wet smear of

                        your vaginal discharge for yeastlike organisms. A fast, simple treatment is the prescription drug

                        fluconazole (Diflucan), given in pill form. In addition, here are strategies that some doctors

                        recommend.

 

                        Scoop some plain yogurt. Eating a container of yogurt a day helps control vaginal yeast, notes

                        Ellen Yankauskas, M.D., director of the Women's Center for Family Health in Atascadero, California.

                        Yogurt has cultured bacteria that help control the yeast and keep it in line, she says. "It's a truce, or

                        a balance. They keep the bad bacteria in control, so they don't flare up," she explains. Yogurt that

                        contains the necessary Lactobacillus acidophilus bacteria will say "active cultures" on the label. But

                        if yogurt isn't your cup of tea, you can also get acidophilus pills: Two a day will do the same thing as

                        a cup of yogurt.

 

                        Cream that itch. An over-the-counter cream is a sure cure for most yeast infections, notes Dr.

                        Yankauskas. Relief used to be available only by prescription. Now you can get over-the-counter

                        brands such as FemCare and Gyne-Lotrimin, which contain clotrimazole, and Monistat 7, with

                        miconazole.

 

                        "I usually tell people to use the cream until the symptoms stop, then use it one more day for good

                        measure," says Dr. Yankauskas. "A yeast infection usually takes three to five days to get rid of."

 

                        Sack the sugar. Sugary foods help make your body a hospitable place for yeast, notes Dr. Arkin.

                        "There are people with chronic yeast infections who break the cycle with very stringent no-sugar

                        diets," she says. But if you don't want to do that, you can try to just cut down on carbohydrates,

                        including pastas breads and high-sugar products.

 

                        Check out the spermicide. One common culprit behind yeast infections is the lubricant in

                        condoms, notes Dr. Yankauskas. "Some lubricants contain nonoxynol 9, the spermicide that kills

                        the AIDS virus, and some women are sensitive to these chemicals," she notes. If your partner is

                        using condoms with spermicide, Dr. Yankauskas recommends that you stick to whatever product

                        your body tolerates.

 

                        Watch the Pill. Another candida-raiser could be the birth control pill, which works by raising your

                        body hormone level and can alter vaginal secretions, says Dr. Yankauskas. "That just might trigger

                        a yeast infection," she suggests.

 

                        C how good it is. Vitamin C helps make your vagina less appealing to yeast, notes Dr. Arkin,

                        because it contains ascorbic acid, which acidifies the vaginal walls. She recommends taking 500

                        milligrams twice a day.

 

                        Don't douche. Overdouching is a major cause of yeast infections, notes Dr. Arkin. "It destroys the

                        normal flora within the vagina, not to mention that all of the bacteria grow back 20 minutes

                        afterward," she says.

 

                        Dr. Yankauskas says douching is never necessary. Women who douche have higher rates of pelvic

                        infection, because douching pushes the germs deeper inside, she notes.

 

                        Stay dry. Don't make a habit of staying in a wet bathing suit or sweaty exercise clothing, notes Dr.

                        Ross. "Change out of wet clothes," she says. "A moist environment promotes the growth of yeast."

 

                                           When Making Love Makes You Uptight

 

                          The lights are dim. Your favorite mood music is on the stereo. The satin sheets are glistening in the

                          candelight. He's wearing nothing but a smile.

 

                          It sounds like an ideal setting for most women. But for those dealing with the daily trauma of

                          vaginismus, a love nest can quickly turn into a hornet's nest of doubts and fears.

 

                          Vaginismus is the involuntary spasm of the muscles surrounding the vaginal opening, which causes

                          the vagina to contract so tightly that intercourse is impossible.

 

                          "It's a psychological problem largely among women who are fearful of sexual activity," notes Barbara

                          Levinson, R.N., Ph.D., a licensed marriage and family therapist and owner of the Center for Healthy

                          Sexuality in Houston. "They have problems not with sexual arousal but with the actual act itself."

 

                          Often vaginismus may be the result of fear, especially if a stern moral upbringing or a sexual trauma

                          early in life has made a woman afraid of the sex act. This reluctance can affect her subconsciously,

                          resulting in the tightening of the vagina, says Dr. Levinson.

 

                          The most important solution to vaginismus is to try to get to the root of any psychological problem

                          with the help of counseling. Then you can start working on the mechanics of the problem.

 

                          Dr. Levinson recommends the following exercise: Start by inserting just two fingers into your vagina,

                          calming yourself and taking deep breaths as you do so. Use lubrication if necessary. If you prefer,

                          have your partner do it, inserting his fingers gently and slowly. Once you're comfortable with that,

                          you can use dilators, which are tube-shaped devices sized from one-half inch in diameter to the size of

                          a penis.

 

                          If this kind of manual stimulation doesn't make you nervous or afraid, you can advance to having your

                          partner insert his penis and then move on to gentle intercourse, says Dr. Levinson. "Something like

                          this can really be reversed with care and understanding," she notes.

 

 

                        Wear cotton panties. Wearing cotton panties provides much-needed absorption in the vaginal area,

                        says Dr. Yankauskas. Cotton gives you a bit more air down there, helping to cut down on the

                        accumulation of wetness that happens with nylon underwear.

 

                        Bathe it away. Another way to make your vagina more acidic and less friendly toward bacteria is

                        by taking a boric acid bath, notes Dr. Arkin. Put two tablespoons of boric acid (which is available in

                        powder form in most pharmacies) in a tub full of warm water and soak. If you have sensitive skin, a

                        boric acid bath may be irritating, warns Dr. Arkin.

 

How can I help prevent recurrent thrush?

 

                         Some people appear to be more susceptible to thrush. The best way to

                         avoid recurrences is to identify what triggers the condition. The problem

                         should be discussed with a doctor who may investigate and manage any

                         underlying condition. Some of the following suggestions may be helpful:

 

                              wear loose cotton underwear and avoid tight clothing. For women this

                              is important when wearing pantyhose or tights.

                              women should always wipe from the front (vagina) to the back (anus)

                              after urinating

                              use condoms when having anal sex

                              uncircumcised men should wash and dry under their foreskin daily

                              avoid excess use of soap, deodorants or talcum powder on genital

                              skin, deodorised panty shields, bubble bath solutions, or vaginal

                              douches

                              minimise the use of antibiotics or request candida treatment when

                              prescribed antibiotics

                              keep healthy: when you are stressed or run down you are more prone

                              to infections.

        Candidiasis

 

        Candida albicans is a type of parasitic yeastlike fungus that inhabits the intestines, genital tract,

        mouth, esophagus, and throat. Normally this fungus lives in healthy balance with the other

        bacteria and yeasts in the body; however, certain conditions can cause it to multiply, weakening

        the immune system and causing an infection known as candidiasis. The fungus can travel through

        the bloodstream to many parts of the body.

        Because candidiasis can affect various parts of the body -- the most common being the mouth,

        ears, nose, gas-trointestinal tract, and vagina -- it can be characterized by many symptoms.

        These include constipation, diarrhea, colitis, abdominal pain, headaches, bad breath, rectal

        itching, impotence, memory loss, mood swings, prostatitis, canker sores, persistent heartburn,

        muscle and join.t pain, sore throat, congestion, nagging cough, numbness in the face or

        extremities, tingling sensations, acne, night sweats, severe itching, clogged sinuses, PMS,

        burning tongue, white spots on the tongue and in the mouth, extreme fatigue, vaginitis, kidney

        and bladder infections, arthritis, depression, hyper-activity, hypothyroidism, adrenal problems,

        and even diabetes. Symptoms often worsen in damp and/or moldy places, and after consumption

        of foods containing sugar and/or yeast. Because of its many and varied symptoms, this disorder

        is often misdiagnosed.

        When candida infects the vagina, it results in vaginitis characterized by a large amount of white,

        cheesy discharge and intense itching and burning, When the fungus infects the oral cavity, it is

        called thrush. White sores may form on the tongue, gums, and inside the cheeks. In a baby, the

        white spots of oral thrush may resemble milk spots. Oral thrush in an infant can spread to the

        mother's nipples by breast-feeding, and can lead to a situation in which mother and baby

        continually reinfect each other, Thrush may also infect a baby's buttocks, appearing as a diaper

        rash. Candida infection may also take the form of athlete's foot or jock itch. Systemic candidiasis

        is an overgrowth of candida everywhere, throughout the body. In the most severe cases, candida

        can travel through the bloodstream to invade every organ system in the body, causing a type of

        blood poisoning called candida septicemia. This condition almost always oc-

        curs in persons with serious underlying illnesses, such as advanced cancer or AIDS.

 

        Candidiasis may affect both men and women; however, it is rarely transmitted sexually. It is

        most common in babies (an infected mother may pass the fungal infection to her newborn) and in

        persons with compromised immune systems. Virtually all people with AIDS have some type of

        fungal infection. Anyone who has been on long-term anti-biotic therapy, or has taken antibiotics

        often, probably has an overgrowth of candida somewhere in his or her body.

 

        Antibiotics weaken the immune system and also destroy the "friendly" bacteria that normally

        keep candida under control. As it proliferates, the fungus releases toxins that weaken the

        immune system further. Other factors that increase the chances of contracting a yeast infection

        include pregnancy and the use of corticosteroid drugs. Very often., allergies to foods are present

        in people with candida infections. Oral thrush, athlete's foot, ringworm, jock itch, fingernail or

        toenail fungus, and even diaper rash can develop as a result of the combination of food allergies

        and C. albicans. The symptoms of a food allergy or environmental sensitivity can also mimic

        those of candidiasis. To further complicate matters, some people with candidiasis go on to

        develop environmental sensitivities as well. Many cannot tolerate contact with rubber, petroleum

        products, tobacco, exhaust fumes, and chemical odors.

        HERBS

        *****

        Pau d'arco (also known as lapacho or taheebo) contains an antibacterial and antifungal agent,

        although it does have an alkaloid base and a small percentage of people may not benefit from its

        use. If you do not benefit from this tea, try clove tea instead. It is a good idea to alternate

        between the two, because dove tea has some benefits that pau d'arco does not have and vice

        versa. To make pau d'arco tea, boil 1 quart of distilled water with 2 tablespoons of herb for hve

        minutes. Cool and store it in the refrigerator with the tea leaves in. Strain before drinking, if

        needed. Drink 3 to 6 cups daily.

 

        Some people who no longer respond to pau d'arco can benefit from maitake tea. It is a good

        alternative. While pau d'arco must be boiled, maitake is prepared as a regular tea. Resistant

        strains of candida develop rapidly due to genetic mutation. Rotating treatment programs is

        beneficial.

 

        RECOMMENDATIONS

 

        Eat vegetables, fish, and gluten-free grains such as brown rice and millet.

 

        Eat plain yogurt that contains live yogurt cultures, For vaginal candidiasis, apply yogurt directly

        to the vagina. This helps to inhibit the growth of the fungus.

 

        p Take supplemental acidophilus or bifidus to help to restore the normal balance of flora in the

        bowel and vagina.

 

        Take some type of fiber daily, Oat bran is a good source.

 

        Drink distilled water only.

 

        Make sure the diet is fruit-free, sugar-free, and yeast-free. Candida thrives in a sugary

        environment, so your diet should be low in carbohydrates and contain no yeast products or sugar

        in any form.

 

        Avoid aged cheeses, alcohol, baked goods, chocolate, dried fruits, fermented foods, all grains

        containing gluten (wheat, oats, rye, and barley), ham, honey, nut butters, pickles, potatoes, raw

        mushroorns, soy sauce, sprouts, and vinegar.

 

        p Eliminate citrus and acidic fruits such as oranges, grapefruit, tomatoes and pineapple  from your diet for one month; then add back only a few twice weekly. Although they seem

        acidic, these fruits are actually alkaline-forming in the body and candida thrives on them.

 

        To replace "friendly" intestinal bacteria, use an L.bifidus retention enema.

 

        Take only hypoallergenic supplements.

 

        To prevent reinfection, replace your toothbrush every thirty days. (or disinfect with tea tree oil). This is a good preventive

        measure against both fungal and bacterial infections of the mouth.

 

        Wear white cotton underwear. Synthetic fibers lead to increased perspiration, which creates a

        hospitable environment for candida, and also traps bacteria, which can cause a secondary

        infection. Change underclothing daily.

 

        Do not use corticosteroids or oral contraceptives until your condition improves. Oral

        contraceptives can upset the balance of microorgan.isms in the body, leading to prolifera-

        tion of C. albicans.

 

        Avoid household chemical products and cleaners, chlorinated water, mothballs, synthetic textiles,

        and damp and moldy places, such as basements.

 

        If you have chronic and/or unusu ally persistent candida infections, consult your health care

        provider. This may be a sign of an underlying illness such as diabetes or immune system

        dysfunction, which makes for an environment more conducive to the growth of yeast.

 

        CONSIDERATIONS

 

        All persons on long-term antibiotics or chemotherapy are at high risk for severe cases of

        candidiasis. Taking antibiotics also can cause a deficiency of vitamin K, which is

        manufactured by the "good bacteria" in the intestines. Eating plenty of leafy greens, alfalfa,

        strawberries, whole grains, and yogurt can restore the vitamin K balance.

 

        If a breastfed baby develops oral thrush or a nursing mother develops a thrush infection of the

        nipples, both mother and baby should be treated to eradicate the infection, even if only one of

        them seems to be affected.

 

        Because there is no simple, accurate test for candida, it is difficult to determine if it is the cause

        of a baby's diaper rash.

 

        Allergy testing is advised for anyone with symptoms of candida infection.

 

        Medical treatment for candidiasis may involve the use of antifungal medications such as nystatin

        (sold under the brand names Mycolog, Mycostatin, Mytrex, Nilstat, and Nystex), ketoconazole

        (Nizoral), and amphotericin (Fungizone). Unfortunately, the use of these agents, especially if

        chronic or repeated, can lead to the development of stronger strains of yeast that are drug

        resistant. Higher dosages are then required, which in turn further weaken the immune system.

        Many doctors no longer use nystatin or antibiotics because they weaken the immune system and

        can damage certain organs, Others prescribe them for short-term treatment only.

                             Yeast Infections

 

                        Most people think of yeast infections, also

                        known as candidiasis, as a plague only

                        upon women. But men can also develop

                        candidiasis, especially those who are

                        uncircumcised. A man with yeast typically

                        shows no symptoms, but each time his

                        partner is treated and gets rid of her

                        infection, he reinfects her. So if you're a

                        woman who's been having problems with yeast infections, be sure

                        your partner is checked, too: Both of you might need some of these

                        herbal remedies.

 

                        Yeast infection is caused by a group of yeastlike fungi called candida.

                        Candida albicans is the most common culprit, but it's not the only

                        one. Everyone has a certain amount of candida living on them and in

                        them, but not everyone develops candidiasis.

 

                        Yeast live on moist areas of the body, such as the lining of the mouth

                        and the vagina. They usually cause no problem, but sometimes they

                        overgrow, causing infection. The vagina is the primary site. (See the

                        chapter on vaginitis on page 441 for details about Green Pharmacy

                        treatments for this problem.) But yeast infections can also develop in

                        the mouth (thrush), in the respiratory tract (bronchocandidiasis) and

                        on the skin (dermatocandidiasis).

 

                        Yeast has become more of problem than it was, say, 60 years ago,

                        because several modern drugs spur yeast overgrowth. Among the

                        leading culprits are antibiotics, steroids and birth control pills.

 

                        Mainstream medicine treats yeast infections with antifungal

                        medications that used to be available only by prescription. But

                        recently several, such as nystatin (Mycostatin) and miconazole

                        (Mon-istat), have become available over the counter, and they are

                        advertised extensively. It's too bad that herbalists can't afford to make

                        TV commercials. If they could, people would understand that there's

                        more than one way to treat a yeast infection.

 

                                      Candidicidal Soup

 

                             If you're dealing with the aggravation of

                             recurring yeast infections, one of the best

                             things you can do for yourself is to develop a

                             taste for garlic and onions. Here's a tasty

                             soup that might help.

 

                             4 cups water

 

                             2 onions, finely chopped

 

                             4 cloves garlic, minced

 

                             Sage

 

                             Thyme

 

                             Ground cloves

 

                             Salt

 

                             Ground black pepper

 

                             Acidophilus yogurt

 

                             Place the water, garlic and onions in a medium

                             saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat, then

                             reduce the heat, cover and simmer for 5

                             minutes, or until the vegetables are tender.

                             Season to taste with the sage, thyme,

                             cloves, salt and pepper, but use the spices

                             somewhat sparingly. Top each serving with a

                             dollop of yogurt.

 

                             Makes 4 servings

 

 

                        Green Pharmacy

                        for Yeast Infections

 

                        There are a number of herbs that can help fight yeast infections, but

                        you'd better be sure of what you're dealing with before you

                        self-medicate. If you have what you suspect is a yeast infection,

                        please see your doctor for a diagnosis. Then, if you'd like to try an

                        herbal alternative as your treatment of choice, you should discuss it

                        with her. You might consider using these herbs in addition to

                        whatever is prescribed for you.

 

                             Echinacea (Echinacea, various species). This herb's

                        immune-stimulating action seems to be particularly helpful for treating

                        yeast infections. In studies using laboratory animals, treatment with

                        the herb protected mice from Candida albicans infections. It works by

                        stimulating the white blood cells to gobble up yeast organisms, a

                        process known as phagocytosis.

 

                        In an impressive German study, women with recurrent vaginal yeast

                        infections were given either standard antifungal medication or the

                        antifungal plus an echinacea extract. Among those taking just the

                        antifungal, 60 percent suffered recurrences. But among the women

                        taking the drug plus echinacea, only about 10 percent experienced

                        recurrences. That sounds to me like a good rationale for giving

                        echinacea a try no matter what kind of yeast infection you're dealing

                        with.

 

                             Garlic (Allium sativum). Garlic is well-known as an

                        antibacterial antibiotic, but it also inhibits fungi quite well and can be

                        used to treat both vaginal candidiasis and thrush. The typical oral

                        dose may range up to a dozen raw, chopped cloves taken two or

                        three times a day in juice. You have to like the taste of garlic pretty

                        much to live with this particular treatment, but I think it's worth a try,

                        as garlic does pack a powerful anti-yeast wallop. (Try blending it with

                        carrots; it's surprisingly easy to take that way.) Onions have a similar

                        but less potent effect.

 

                           Cranberry (Vaccinium macrocarpon). Arbutin, a compound

                        found in cranberries (and bearberries and blueberries), helps treat

                        candida infections, according to naturopaths Joseph Pizzorno, N.D.,

                        president of Bastyr University in Seattle, and Michael Murray, N.D.,

                        authors of A Textbook of Natural Medicine. So if you're thinking of

                        taking garlic, why not take it with cranberry juice? Or just eat some

                        cranberry sauce plain. These colorful berries are not just for

                        Thanksgiving.

 

 

                                     Cranberry

 

                                     The tart berry that lends

                                     a distinctive taste to

                                     cranberry juice and sauce

                                     was used by

                                     nineteenth-century

                                     physicians to relieve

                                     inflammation.

Drinking cranberry juice allows your system to become more acidic, preventing overgrowth of this or other unwanted microbes.

 

 

                           Goldenseal (Hydrastis canadensis). This is the best known

                        among the "golden" herbs that contain the antibiotic berberine. Others

                        include goldthread, yellowroot, barberry and Oregon grape. Berberine

                        is effective against many microorganisms, including yeasts. At home,

                        I take a tincture. In the field, I'd make a tea. You can use it either

                        way.

 

                           Pau-d'arco (Tabebuia, various species). Pau-d'arco contains

                        the anti-yeast compounds lapachol and beta-lapachone, according to

                        Dr. Murray, Dr. Pizzorno and other researchers. Lapachol is the

                        weaker of the two, but its anti-yeast action is still comparable to that

                        of the prescription anti-yeast medication ketaconazole (Nizoral). I

                        have used a Latin American salve containing lapachol to clear up

                        genital candida, and I would do so again if I had a flare-up. Flare-ups

                        are frequent in the humid tropics. In the tropics, I'd boil up a

                        concentrated decoction. At home, I'd empty a couple of capsules into

                        a medicated salve.

 

                           Purslane (Portulaca oleracea). Vitamins A (and beta-carotene),

                        C and E are my personal "ACE in the hole" for supporting the immune

                        system. You definitely want to give the immune system help when it's

                        fighting a yeast infection of any kind. Purslane is the best food source

                        of all of these nutrients. I suggest enjoying young shoots of this tasty

                        vegetable in a salad or steaming the leaves like spinach.

 

                           Goldenrod (Solidago virgaurea). Commission E, the group of

                        botanical medicine experts that advises the German government

                        about herbs, approves using anti-inflammatory goldenrod for

                        preventing and treating various urogenital disorders, including yeast

                        infections. Compounds in goldenrod (ester saponins) are active

                        against candida organisms. This herb can be used as an astringent

                        beverage tea, and you can also use the tea as a douche.

 

                           Ivy (Hedera helix). Ivy leaves are active against candida and quite

                        a few bacteria. Commission E endorses using 0.3 gram (that's just a

                        pinch of dried herb) for various chronic inflammatory conditions, and

                        that seems like a reasonable dose for fighting yeast infections as

                        well. You can steep the herb in hot water for about 10 to 15 minutes

                        and drink the tea.

 

                           Licorice (Glycyrrhiza glabra) and stevia (Stevia rebaudiana).

                        Many specialists advise those with recurrent yeast problems against

                        using alcohol, products that contain yeast and simple sugars. If

                        you've had a yeast infection before and want to prevent a fresh

                        outbreak, you should steer clear of honey and sugar. If you'd like to

                        sweeten anti-candida teas, try using herbal sweeteners like licorice

                        root or stevia.

 

                           Sage (Salvia officinalis). Sage contains a mixture of

                        anti-candida compounds. You could take sage tea as a beverage or

                        use it as an astringent douche. If you're using it as a douche, you

                        might add a drop or two of teatree oil, a potent anti-yeast herbal

                        product.

 

                           Spicebush (Lindera benzoin). Studying 54 plant species for

                        antimicrobial effects, American scientists found that an extract of

                        spicebush bark strongly inhibited Candida albicans. Throughout

                        Appalachia, spicebush tea has long been a favorite, proving once

                        again the wisdom of much folk medicine.

http://www.mothernature.com/library/books/thegreenpharmacy/yeast_infection.asp

Dear all,

 

          I am a PWH living in Switzerland. In June, last year, I sent a mail on the

          PWHA forum of HIVnet regarding the problem of lactose intolerance

          (associated in my case with the appearance of the lipoatrophy) {Mod:

          http://www.hivnet.ch:8000/topics/pwha-net/viewR?423,}. I did not have

          an in-born intolerance to lactose. I found the responsible of this problem. It

          was candida albicans (or others candida). I solved the problem and during

          this process I made an hard work for understanding my situation. I feel the

          need now to share my thoughts with you. I hope you can find some

          interesting ideas in this document. The information is of interest to people

          having access to antiretroviral therapy as well as people not having access

          to it.

 

          I spent a lot of time in new domains to me like microbiology, cell biology,

          nutrition and discovered that HIV infection cannot be separated from

          chronic candidiasis syndrome (CCS), a new growing health problem. You

          can find a description of CCS at:

 

          www.cfs-recovery.org/docdarren2.html

 

          CCS is becoming a growing health problem, not only in people living with

          HIV. A 10 % of the population in the US is estimated to suffer of CCS,

          but they are not aware of it. This occurs simply because they are

          consuming too much refined sugar or too much antibiotics.

 

          I think the majority of doctors have a false vision of candidiasis, thinking it

          is not immunodepressive. The phagocytosis (mechanism used by our

          immune for fighting candida albicans) is not destroying T4 cells. I see two

          reasons transforming a candidiasis in an immunodepressive disease:

 

          1.- Candida overgrowth destroys little by little the intestinal wall, making

          the intestine porous (leaky gut syndrome), allowing foreign molecules to

          reach the bloodstream. Our immune system will fight against those foreign

          molecules and depending on the kind of blood contaminant, this fight can

          become immunodepressive.

 

          2.- Often, candida albicans is not playing alone, but is associated with

          protozoa (giardia lambla or eventually microsporidium, very common in

          developing countries). The cysts or oocyists of those protozoa are staying

          in the intestinal wall our entire life and when they decyst, from time to time,

          they just help the development of CCS. Infections with those protozoa are

          very immunodepressive. I experienced it 5 years ago when my T4 cells

          account was at its lowest level. Diarrhea caused by Giardia (half liquid, half

          solid) are often considered by people on HAART as a side-effect due to

          their medicines.

 

 

          I also understand now why the prevention against opportunistic infections

          with Bactrim in some of my friends worsened their health or killed them. I

          was on Bactrim during 4 years. Bactrim by suppressing some of the good

          bacterias in the intestine favorizes candida overgrowth. At the same time,

          the people on Bactrim received the message to take more vitamins. In

          developing countries, people often take the C vitamin with fruit. Fructose

          just feed candida albicans, worsening the problem.

 

          I think that the majority of the side-effects attributed to antiretroviral

          therapy (HAART) are not due to the medication, but are associated to

          CCS, hidden infection in the intestine. It is interesting to note, in the

          document mentioned above, that the symptoms of the CCS affecting the

          brain (frequent mood swings. inability to concentrate, etc.) are exactly

          corresponding to what is named AIDS dementia. I am on HAART now,

          with excellent viral results (VL < 50) and very little side-effects (just a little

          bit numbness due to D4T).

 

          I developed a method for fighting CCS and giardiasis, using 3 natural

          medicines, with very little side effects completed by an anti-candida diet

          (low carbohydrates, difficult to do at the beginning). Those medicines are:

 

          - teatree oil a medicine from the Australian aborigines

          - lapacho decoction a medicine from the Incas

          - propolis a medicine used by Hypocrat, produced by the bees

 

          All 3 products are not only powerful anti-fungal drugs, they also have a lot

          of other interesting properties for people living with HIV, like

          immunostimulant, detoxifiant effect for the lapacho (which seems not

          interfering with HAART in my case), antibiotics. I was not looking for their

          antibiotics properties, which I thought at the beginning was bad for the

          good bacteria in the intestine. I re-established the balance in adding water

          kefir (1.5 l/day) to my CCS treatment in order to load my intestine with

          lactobacillus caucasum. Lactobacillus is the best bacteria for fighting against

          candida albicans.

 

          I have chosen those natural medicines (except one single dose of 100 mg

          fluconazole, allowing me to discover what is an Herxheimer reaction at the

          beginning) in order to protect my liver. HAART is toxic for the liver

          (fluconazole too) and I see around me people starting to have really bad

          liver problem (11% of the death in people living with HIV, on HAART, are

          due to the toxicity of the medicines, mostly liver problems. I also observed

          in the past that fluconazole was badly used by doctors, just adding a

          dose/week to the HAART. In some cases people using fluconazole every

          week just developed resistance to it after 1...1.5 years. On the resistance

          problem, you can read:

 

          www.thebody.com/niaid/yeast_mating.html

 

 

          I learned to play with the properties of those 3 natural medicines. It also

          helped me to reduce HAART toxicity. The result is just fantastic. I needed

          several months for believing it, verifying all the time. For example, my

          cholesterol level (associated with lipoatrophy, catabolism due to

          mitochondrial damage created by some antiretrovirals), dropped by a

          factor 2 and is back to the normal now. Propolis seems also efficient for

          fighting tuberculosis, a major problem in countries hit by HIV. I found a

          bibliography on propolis at:

 

          www.sci.fi/~apither/bibbase/propindic.html

 

 

          Several documents are in relation with tuberculosis, but I still don't have

          them and did not find the time for working on the tuberculosis problem. I

          have the idea that propolis could be used for tuberculosis prevention and,

          maybe for other opportunistic infections too. If this works, I am afraid we

          will not have enough bees for helping us.

 

          I am no more lactose intolerant now. The lactose intolerance, as well as

          other common food intolerances and allergies, is due to candida albicans

          overgrowth. Now you understand why I think adding lactose to some

          anti-retroviral medicine (Crixivan, Sustiva) is not a good idea, specially in

          people having an in-born lactose intolerance (75 % of all Africans, 90 % of

          all Asians). The lactose will just feed candida albicans.

 

          I think CCS as well as intestinal health need to be considered from the

          beginning of an HIV infection and PVH need to be careful with the

          consume of sugars, specially refined sugars.

 

          All of this worked very well to me, I recovered my health, have a lot of

          energy now and I am working on re-organizing my life for the next 5....10

          years. Of course, all this should be tried and confirmed by other PWAs.

 

          I hope you can find interesting ideas in this document. Don't loose hope!

 

          Regards,

HISTORY OF KEFIR GRAINS

            The word kefir is said to have originated from the Turkish

word"Keif"which means"good feeling". This is probably due to the overall

sense of health and well-being they enjoyed though its consumption.  Kefir

dates back many centuries to the shepherds of the Caucasus mountains, many

of which live to be happily active and over 100years.  They discovered that

fresh milk carried in leather pouches would occasionally ferment into an

effervescent beverage.

            For most of recorded history, kefir was scarcely known outside

the Caucasian Mountains, although Marco Polo mentioned it in recounting his

travels.  Kefir received renewed interest in the Western World when it was

found it to be a useful therapeutic treatment for patients in sanitariums.

This self-carbonated dairy-based beverage continues to be popular in Russia,

southwestern Asia and Eastern and Northern Europe, and has recently gained

some popularity in the United States.

 

 

 

DOMINANT KEFIR GRAIN CULTURES

            The dominant microflora are Saccharomyces kefir, Torula kefir,

Lactobacillus caucasicus, Leuconnostoc species, lactic streptococci and

lactose-fermenting yeast.  Some of the bacteria in the kefir culture are

like those used for making yogurt, while the yeast generate a small amount

of carbon dioxide and alcohol (<0.5%).  Other bacteria produce a viscous gum

which holds all the microorganisms together in gelatinous lumps.  Kefir is

very similar to yogurt. The main difference is that kefir curds have a small

surface tension.  This allows the curds to be easily broken into small

pieces. The small curd size gives kefir a liquid consistency

The lactobacilli got their name from their chief by-product, lactic acid.

Lactobacillus organisms are rod shaped organisms that live in acidic

conditions (pH 4-5; neutral pH is 7.0; our blood is at a pH of 7.2). These

organisms can be found on the surface of nearly every plant. Lactobacillus

species are also found in our mouths, intestines, and birth canals.

            Kefir contains several major strains of friendly bacteria not

commonly found in  Sources for Kefir yogurt, Lactobacillus Caucasus,

Leuconostoc, Acetobacter species, and Streptococcus species. It also

contains beneficial yeast, such as Saccharomyces kefir and Torula kefir,

which dominate, control and eliminate destructive pathogenic yeast in the

body.  They do so by penetrating the mucosal lining where unhealthy yeast

and bacteria reside, forming a virtual SWAT team that housecleans and

strengthens the intestines. Hence, the body becomes more efficient in

resisting such pathogens as E. coli and intestinal parasites.

 

 

 

KEFIR GRAIN NUTRITIONAL PROFILE

An excerpt a Kefir article by Donna Gates

            In addition to beneficial bacteria and yeast, kefir contains

minerals and essential amino acids that help the body with healing and

maintenance functions. The complete  proteins in kefir are partially

digested and  therefore more easily utilized by the body.

Tryptophan, one of the essential amino acids  abundant in kefir, is well

known for its relaxing effect on the nervous system. Because kefir also

offers an abundance of calcium and magnesium, which are also important

minerals  for a healthy nervous system, kefir in the diet can have a

particularly profound calming  effect on the nerves. Kefir's ample supply of

phosphorus, the second most abundant mineral in our bodies, helps utilize

carbohydrates, fats, and proteins for cell growth, maintenance and energy.

Kefir is rich in Vitamin B1, B12, calcium, amino acids, folic acid and

Vitamin K.  It is an excellent source of biotin, a B Vitamin that aids the

body's assimilation of other B Vitamins, such as folic acid, pantothenic

acid, and B12. The numerous benefits of maintaining adequate B vitamin

intake range from regulation of the kidneys, liver and nervous system to

helping relieve skin disorders, boost energy and promote longevity.

 

 

 

KEFIR GRAIN HEALTH BENEFITS

 

      The culturesí chemical changes make the milk much easier to digest,

     allowing the body to absorb more of the naturally present nutrients.

     The transformation of lactose to lactic acid allows people, even t hose

     with lactose intolerance, to digest kefir and receive their full

     benefits.

     Kefir can play a vital role in the development of a healthy digestive

     tract in babies, as it protects against negative effects of radiation

     and helps improve the immune system.

     Undesirable bacteria that reside in the intestines produce certain

     enzymes that may turn certain dietary substances into potential

     carcinogens.  The friendly-flora of kefir actually reduce the levels of

     these carcinogenic enzyme substances.

     Kefirís friendly cultures also produce specific antibiotic substances,

     which can control undesirable microorganisms and act as an

     anti-carcinogenic factor.

     Kefir culture produces a series of natural proteins and protein

     fragments, called peptides, that may have an inhibitory effect on less

     desirable bacteria.

     Kefir also helps to enhance bowel function and control Candida - a

     condition where there is an excessive growth of yeast cells.

 

RESEARCH OF KEFIR GRAINS

 

      Dr. Orla-Jenson, a noted Danish bacteriologist specializing in dairy

     research states that"Kefir digests yeast cells and has a beneficial

     effect on the intestinal flora".

     An international Nobel Prize winning researcher, Elie Metchnikoff

     (1908) found that kefir activates the flow of saliva, most likely due

     to its lactic acid content and its slight amount of carbonation. 

     Kefir stimulates peristalsis and digestive juices in the intestinal

     tract. For these reasons, it is recommended as a postoperative food

     since most abdominal operations cause the bowels to stop contracting

     and pushing food along (peristalsis).

     A European doctor by the name of Dr Johannes Kuhl conducted one of the

     foremost studies of lactic acid.  In his research he discovered that

     kefir was very high in lactic acid.  Consequently, found that

     well-balanced diet with liberal amounts of lactic acid fermented foods

     was good protection against cancer.

     Lactic acid bacteria fight pathogenic organisms: Salmonella typhi die;

     escherichia coli are unable to develop, and S. paratyphi and

     Corynebacteriae diphtheriae lose their pathogenic properties. Fermented

     milk cultures have been reported to help treat achylia gastrica, peptic

     ulcer, cholecystitis, gastroenteritis, colitis, diarrhea, and

     dysentery.

 

 

WHAT TYPE OF MILK TO USE

            There are many choices for milk; pasteurized, unpasteurized

goat, sheep, cow, whole fat, low fat, skim and no fat.  All types will work

well.  The more whole the milk, the more thick and creamy the kefir milk

will be.  Pasteurized is usually recommended, although I have had success

thus far using raw goat milk.  It is said, the bacteria in raw milk may

compete with the balance of the symbiotic relationship of the kefir grains.

             Personally my daily diet consists of 100% Vegetarian Raw Food.

I will use the healing benefits of unpasteurized raw goat milk for

particular and obvious reasons. Whenever possible know that"Raw is Nature's

First Law!"  Through these 8 years of knowledge and experience both

personally and professionally, I know raw goat milk is far superior to cow

milk for many reasons.  If it is not available for you for some reason do

not be too concerned.  The fact that the milk is transformed by the kefir

culture will add more benefits to your health that consuming uncultured

milk.

           I go into detail about that and other topics in my book entitled

Four Pillars of Living Health.  The manuscript is available at

www.involved.com/livinghealth.  Dr. Bernard Jensen has extensively

researched and used goat milk products over the past 70 years of his

scholarly practice and teachings.  Many books of his are available on this

and many nutritional subjects.  In fact, one woman was allergic to so many

things, goat milk was the only food she was able to consume and she did so

for 30 years!

 

 

PROCESS OF FERMENTION YOUR KEFIR GRAINS

            When the organisms ferment they simply take sugar (lactose; the

main sugar in milk) and break it down to get energy. Lactobacilli are not

able to completely breakdown sugar and consequently they leave behind

byproducts.   Kefir is made by fermentation of the"kefir"grains, which

resembles miniature cauliflower that are the size of wheat kernels. These

grains consist of casein and gelatinous colonies of microorganisms that are

grown together symbiotically.  Kefir is fermented in a covered container,

and is not likely to be contaminated.   The most suitable fermentation pots

are glass, glazed pottery, or porcelain.  Aluminum is not advisable for use

at all, therefore unsuitable for lactic acid fermentation as well.

             The best fermentation temperature for Kefir is between 22oC and

30o C (72 - 86o F).  Researchers have found nearly 30 different bacteria and

25 different yeast in Kefir cultures. Every bacteria and culture has

specific temperature requirements, this is why a constant low temperature

cannot be compensated with a longer fermentation time, or vise versa. The

temperature requirements of the bacteria Leu.  Citrovorum has a temperature

requirement of 20o C (68o F), Lactobacillus acidophilus a requirement of 38o

C (100o C) but some literature recommends 43.3 - 44.5o C (110o - 112o F).

Lactobacillus bulgaricus likes temperatures between 43.3 - 46.6o C (110o -

116o F).  In winter and in cooler areas a heating device is recommended.

 

 

PRODUCING KEFIR FOR LIFE

            To make kefir, you begin with any milk.  It is unnecessary to

pre-boil the milk.  Add the kefir grains, and allow the milk to culture at

room temperature 65-75F for 1 or 3 days.  During this time the fat solids

and whey will separate in you container.  This will allow you to know how

fermented the milk has become and how much time is left.  You may stir them

to allow the kefir bacteria and yeast to be distributed.  If you have ample

grains to milk, stirring is less necessary.  If you do choose to stir them,

do so every 6-8 hours.

            Then strain the thickened milk.  The kefir whey drains through

while the kefir grains remain for the next session.  When more whole fat

milk is used, it will yield greater residue, which is less able to go

through your strainer.  This is OK, it's your choice.  I find it a little

too messy finding my grains again.

 

            1. Put 3 tablespoons of the kefir grain culture in a jar and add

about 1/2-1 cup of goat or cow's milk.

            2. Seal well the container to keep out other bacteria and put it

in a dark place, at room temperature 65-75F.

            3. The milk will ferment and be ready for consumption in

12hrs(mild), 24hrs(tart), and 48hrs(zesty).

            4. Separate the grains from milk fat solids gently press solids

through the strainer.

            5.  If you like rinse off some of the fat solids from the grains

with unchlorinated water.  Don't get too clean.

            6. After this, you can return to step 1 and enjoy your new

exciting hobby of culturing!

 

 

 

SMOOTH KEFIR CHEVERON CHEESE

 

       Uncooked method, Ladle clear whey liquid carefully out from the kefir

     curds.  The grains are not needed here for cheese production.  Place

     two layers of cheesecloth in a colander or strainer and pour remaining

     curds onto it.  Tie or seal it shut and allow the remaining whey to

     drain.  Occasionally knead it to further dry the solids and distribute

     them into a smooth consistency.  Time, patience and attention will

     teach you how to create wonderful cheese.

     The cooked method,if you must.  This process will yield a harder and

     drier cheese than the former one.  Heat the cultured milk until tiny

     bubbles form on the surface.  This is well below its boiling

     temperature.  Realize, if you cook it, it becomes pasteurized again,

     therefore killing all the beneficial yeast and bacteria which you so

     lovingly cultured to life.  It will have the flavor but not the healing

     properties of Kefir.

 

 

 

 

STORAGE AND CARE OF THE KEFIR GRAINS

            Simply air dry them on cheesecloth for 2 days, put them in a

paper envelope, and store in a cool dry place. The grains should remain

active for a year or more.  To reactivate, soak the grains overnight in

water, strain and add to one cup milk.  Let sit for one day, strain and add

to 2 cups of milk and so on until the grains can culture a quart of milk or

to taste.

 

An excerpt a Kefir article by Harald W. Tietze

            There are many brief information sheets given to friends along

with the Kefir culture and the recommendations of care for the culture and

storage vary dramatically.  Most recommendations advise to wash the culture

before every use.  Some say with cold water, some with water around 20o C.

Washing is recommended to clean up unwanted or unfriendly bacteria which may

settle on the symbiotic system.  The advice to wash a culture, you only find

in Western literature.  The people I know from Russia, Poland, Romania and

Hungary who have known about Kefir fermenting from childhood do not

recommend washing. They say that the beneficial micro flora around the

culture will be disturbed or destroyed definitely with chlorinated water and

fluoridated water and donít wash the culture except for drying purposes or

if fermentation is paused for a short term.  I personally agree with the

natural way in not washing the culture.

            For a short break of Kefir fermenting, like going on a holiday

for a fortnight, the grains are placed in fresh milk, and then stored in the

refrigerator at 4o C.  The Kefir grains are tougher than most people think.

To compare different cultures, I asked a friend in north Queensland (and

itís really hot up there) to send me a culture. I live 3000 km south and the

parcel was 12 days on the road by Australia Post. The fresh grains, bottled

together with a 1/4 liter milk arrived absolutely active and the first brew

was perfect. Not only that, the long fermentation and 3000 km truck shaking,

produced a very pleasant tasting Kefir.

            If you are not sure in the handling of Kefir then try to think a

few hundred years back in a simple farm kitchen in the Caucasus mountains

and make your own mind up. Like the Australian saying-"use the KISS

method"Keep It Simple Silly.

For long storage it is recommended to change the milk every few weeks to

feed the grains and keep them fully active.  Some say that deep freezing may

kill the culture and others had no problem to reactivating the culture after

a long storage in a deep freezer.

 

 

 

STORING YOUR KEFIR

An excerpt a Kefir article by Harald W. Tietze

            After fermentation with the culture, you may store it in the

refrigerator.  At a temperature of 4C your Kefir will be of good quality for

about 14 days.  Maybe you can try different ripening processes with a few

batches. Instead of storing your Kefir in the refrigerator until you use it,

you can ripen it at 10-18C for another one to four days.  Ripened Kefir has

a stronger aroma, takes on a mousse-like appearance, the yeast become more

active and the alcohol content rises to 2-3%.

 

            In the fridge, at a temperature of ca. 3-5 degrees Celsius, the

kefir can survive at least a couple of weeks, after which the milk must be

refreshed.  Your kefir grain will grow larger and larger. When it becomes

too big you can cut (or pull) it in half and give one part to a friend.  If

you run out of milk accidentally, you may put the kefir grain in water for

at least 24 hours.   I never tried this but it sounds accurate: if you keep

the kefir in water, add some sugar to the water. This will feed the grain.

 

                                                                       http://www.torontoadvisors.com/Kefir/article2_Kris.htm

      Kefir, a probiotic cultured dairy

                                    product, is similar in some ways

                                    to yogurt, but offers a wider

                                    variety of health benefits.

 

                                    Unlike yogurt, which typically

                                    contains only two or three

                                    different bacteria, true kefir

                                    contains a range of different

                                    microorganisms, each with its

                                    own unique contribution to

                                    kefir's singular character.

 

                                    Simply stated, kefir has more of

the "good stuff" in it than yogurt.

 

Some of the benefits of Lifeway Kefir include:

 

     Kefir is well tolerated by people with lactose intolerance

     Kefir stimulates digestion and appetite

     Kefir can decrease the blood's cholosterol levels

     Kefir improves resistance to colds and other contagious

Kefir's History

 

Kefir dates back many centuries to the shepherds of the Caucasus mountains. They discovered that

fresh milk carried in leather pouches would occasionally ferment into an effervescent beverage.

 

In the Caucasian Mountains, legend has it that the resulting kefir "grains (not really a true grain) were

a gift to Orthodox people from Mohammed, who instructed them on how to use the grains.

Mohammed strictly forbade them from giving away the secret of kefir preparation to other people, or

pass anyone kefir grains, because they would lose their "magic strength." The legend explains why

kefir grains and the method for kefir preparation have been surrounded by mystery for so long.

 

For most of recorded history, kefir was scarcely known outside the Caucasian Mountains, although

Marco Polo mentioned it in recounting his travels.

 

This self-carbonated dairy-based beverage continues to be popular in Russia, southwestern Asia and

Eastern and Northern Europe, and has recently gained some popularity in the United States.

 

Kefir's Production

 

Basically, kefir is made by fermentation of the "kefir" grains, which resembles miniature cauliflowers

that are the size of wheat kernels. These grains consist of casein and gelatinous colonies of

microorganisms that are grown together symbiotically. The dominant microflora are Saccharomyces

kefir, Torula kefir, Lactobacillus caucasicus, Leuconnostoc species and lactic streptococci. In

addition, some yeast is present.

 

These many beneficial microorganisms are what separates kefir from virtually all other cultured milk

products, which typically use only one, and rarely more than three species in the culturing process.

These microorganisms produce a variety of changes in the milk.

 

Kefir's Health Benefits

 

The cultures' chemical changes make the milk much easier to digest, allowing the body to absorb

more of the naturally present nutrients. The transformation of lactose to lactic acid allows people,

even t hose with lactose intolerance, to digest kefir and get its full benefits.Kefir is high in calcium,

amino acids, B-vitamins and folic acid. Kefir can play a vital role in the development of a healthy

digestive tract in babies, as it protects against negative effects of radiation and helps improve the

immune system. Kefir's friendly cultures also produce specific antibiotic substances which can control

undesirable microorganisms and act as anti-carcinogenic factors. Kefir also helps to enhance bowel

function and control candida - a condition where there is an excessive growth of yeast cells. In

reference to Candida, Dr. Orla-Jenson, a noted Danish bacteriologist specializing in dairy research

states that "Kefir digests yeast cells and has a beneficial effect on the intestinal flora".

 

An international Nobel prize winning researcher, Elie Metchnikoff (1908) found that kefir activates

the flow of saliva, most likely due to its lactic acid content and its slight amount of carbonation. Kefir

stimulates peristalsis and digestive juices in the intestinal tract. For these reasons it is recommended as

a postoperative food since most abdominal operations cause the bowels to stop contracting and

pushing food along (peristalsis).

 

Kefir's unique properties include its use as a remedy for digestive troubles because of its very low

curd tension, meaning that the curd breaks up very easily into extremely small particles. The curd of

yogurt, on the other hand, holds together or breaks up into lumps. The small size of the kefir curd

facilitates digestion by presenting a large surface for digestion agents to work on. In addition, kefir

possesses mild laxative properties. It is also recommended to restore the intestinal flora of people

who are recovering from a serious illness or being treated with antibiotics. Kefir is predigested due to

the fermentation process rendering itself tolerable to those persons who can not tolerate dairy

products.

Review of Literature

     agent." Cancer Research. 28:1952-4, October 1968.

 

Lapachol (2-hydroxy-3-(3-methyl-2-butenyl)-1,4-naphthoquinone) is identified as an active

compound isolated from the lapacho tree. Walker 256 rat carcinosarcoma showed sensitivity to

lapachol by daily intraperitoneal injection at levels up to those producing limited toxicity. Lapachol

exhibited marked effectiveness by oral route of administration with best activity shown with twice a

day oral administration on Days 3-6.

     assay and analysis of a folk lore product." Anticancer Research. 17(2A):1027-33,

     March/April 1997.

 

Pau d'arco showed clear evidence of differentiation-inducing activity. In vitro studies showed

lapachol activity at concentrations similar to that of many anti-cancer drugs. Activity on pau d'arco

and lapachol was inhibited by vitamin K1. the structure of lapachol resembles that of vitamin K.

Results indicate that the concentrations of lapachol and pau d'arco required for differentiation are

considerably less than that required for cytotoxicity. The results also suggest that lapachol interacts

with a vitamin-K-dependent reaction involved in the erythroid differentiation program. Targeted

vitamin-K-requiring reactions may therefore include the activity of an oncogenic receptor tyrosine

kinase.

                                 Bee Propolis Fights Dental

                                                 Plaque

 

                               Bee propolis helps prevent the formation of

                               dental plaque, according to new research. This

                               effect seems to be due to its ability to inhibit

                               the activity of certain enzymes, which

                               synthesize glucans from sucrose.

 

                                    Researchers analyzed propolis extracts,

                                    from samples obtained from 2 different

                                    regions in Brazil and analyzed the

                                    activity of enzymes exposed to the

                                    extracts.

 

                                    The propolis effectively inhibited

                                    the activity of the enzymes from

                                    45% to 95% at concentrations

                                    between 0.75 and 3.0 mg of propolis/ml.

 

                                    The study's authors note that propolis

                                    has been used for thousands of years in

                                    folk medicine.

 

                               They also note that the active compound in

                               propolis responsible for this anti-plaque

                               effect, is unknown and attempts should be

                               made to identify it.

 

                               Caries Research September-October,

                               2000;34:418-426

 

 

 

                               DR. MERCOLA'S COMMENT: Bee propolis

                               has very powerful antimicrobial actions and

                               putting it in toothpaste is quite a novel

                               application. Dental hygiene is an important

                               part of staying healthy and this seems like it

                               might be a good tool to help facilitate that.

                               Sure seems much better than fluoride.

 

                               However, do not forget that a high sugar

                               and grain diet is what causes the bugs to

                               become active to begin with. So even if

                               propolis were an incredible agent, it would

                               be far better to take a proactive approach

                               and head off the bugs at the start by

                               following the diet I recommend.

                        TEA TREE - het `wondermiddel` uit Australië

 

                           Wondermiddelen bestaan jammer genoeg niet. Toch zou je de etherische olie van

                           de Tea Tree een wondermiddel kunnen noemen. De Tea Tree, Melaleuca

                           alternifolia is een kleine boom of struik met bladeren die op naalden lijken. De

                           boom groeit alleen in Australië, hoofdzakelijk in New South Wales en behoort tot

                           de Mirte achtigen evenals de Mirte, Niaouli, Kruidnagel, Kajepoet en Eucalyptus,

                           waaruit eveneens essentiële oliën gewonnen worden. De etherische olie wordt

                           verkregen door stoomdestillatie. Er zijn tientallen kilo`s bladeren nodig om enkele

                           druppels etherische olie te verkrijgen.

 

 Tea Tree olie heeft een indrukwekkende geschiedenis. Eeuwen voordat Captain Cook, de ontdekker van

 Australië, zijn thee uit de bladeren van de Tea Tree (theeboom) maakte, kenden de Aboriginals de genezende

 werking van de bladeren. Ze werden fijngewreven en met klei tot pakkingen gevormd, waarmee huidaandoeningen

 en ontstekingen werden behandeld.

                                      hoe werkt Tea Tree ?

 Tea Tree etherische olie is ontsmettend, krampstillend, pijnstillend, schimmelwerend, schimmeldodend,

 stimulerend, zweetuitdrijvend, pusoplossend, bacteriedodend, insectenwerend: voorkomt de vorming van lelijk

 littekenweefsel. Neutraliseert het gif van de meeste kleine insecten. Tea Tree olie heeft een enigzins verdovende,

 dus pijnstillende werking, die vooral tot uiting komt bij behandeling van snij-, schaaf- en brandwonden. De

 antiseptische werking is twaalf maal sterker dan die van Fenol, een chemisch desinfectans, dat algemeen wordt

 gebruikt. Werkt zeer effectief tegen bacteriën, schimmels en virussen en doodt alle stammen van de dodelijke

 Staphylococcus Aureas evenals van de Pseudomonas Aerginosa, Proteus Vulgaris, Escherischia Coli en o.a. de

 schimmels Aspergillus Niger, Candida Albicans, Trichophyton Mentagrophytes en Legionella SPP (veteranenziekte).

 Ook heeft de olie een sterke immuunstimulans, d.w.z. het stimuleert het eigen afweersysteem, daarom wordt in

 Australië intensief onderzocht of Tea Tree bij de behandeling van `aids` gebruikt kan worden.

 Tea Tree olie is een ingewikkeld mengsel van 48 werkstoffen, waaronder tot 60 % alpha-terpenen,

 gamma-terpenen, cymene alpha-terpineol, sesqui`terpenen, sesqui`terpenen alcohol en tot 6% teroïnenol en

 cineol. Onze olie bevat gemiddeld ruim 38% terpeen-4-ol en minder dan 3% cineol, waarmee ruimschoots aan de

 Australische standaard (max. 15% cineol en min. 30% terpeen-4-ol) voldaan wordt.

                                                                                              »

 

                                                                      

 

                    gebruik Tea Tree onverdund of gemengd met een basisolie

 De olie kan onverdund worden aangebracht op infecties, puistjes, steenpuisten,

 snijwonden, insectenbeten en lichte brandwonden. Neusverstoppingen

 verminderen snel door Tea Tree olie te inhaleren. Tea Tree olie irriteert de

 normale huid niet, is niet giftig en toch sterk antiseptisch, kiemdodend en

 schimmelwerend.

 

 Ook kunt u Tea Tree olie mengen met een vette plantenolie, een z.g. basis-olie. Dit mengsel kan gebruikt worden,

 als massage-olie, om grotere aandoeningen in te smeren of bij personen die de pure Tea Tree olie niet verdragen.

 Tea Tree olie tast het gezonde weefsel niet aan en bevordert normale celgroei en celvernieuwing. Inwendig alleen

 gebruiken in overleg met een (homeopatische) arts. Houd etherische oliën altijd buiten het bereik van kinderen.

 Candida of Monilia is eigenlijk een gistcel die van nature in het menselijk lichaam voorkomt en daar leeft van dood

 weefsel. De cel, een zogenaamde Saprofiet, geeft geen problemen zolang hij normaal kan functioneren en onder

 controle van het menselijke afweersysteem en de darmflora staat. Bij een verzwakte afweer kan de Candida

 albicans zich in het lichaam gaan vermeerderen, vooral in de dikke darm, wordt pathogeen en verandert in een

 schimmel. De schimmel benut levend weefsel om zich uit te kunnen breiden. Deze schimmelkolonies produceren

 toxinen die in de bloedsomloop terecht kunnen komen en daardoor andere weefsels, zoals bijv. die van maag of

 vagina kunnen infecteren. In eerste instantie nestelt de schimmel, die overigens ook van buitenaf in het lichaam

 terecht kan komen, zich in de slijmvliezen, maar kan zich ook uitbreiden naar ander weefsel en dan de oorzaak

 worden van ernstige infecties. Dit leidt veelal tot klachten als menstruele krampen, lethargie, chronische diarree,

 blaasontstekingen, astma, migraine, depressie of huidproblemen.

 De Candida albicans schimmel produceert ruim 79 verschillende chemische substanties die als allergenen kunnen

 worden aangemerkt. Hierdoor wordt ook duidelijk welk een enorme belasting dit vormt voor het afweersysteem.

 Ook worden op den duur de T-suppressorcellen aangetast en zal op langere termijn het immuunsysteem ontregeld

 raken. Als gevolg van de verstoring van de immuunbalans zal het aantal allergenen nog verder toenemen wat zich

 meestal uit in uitzonderlijke vermoeidheid, heftige allergische reacties en een zeer slechte darmfunctie. De

 biologische storingen die door een vergaande kolonisatie van de Candida albicans schimmel kunnen worden

 opgeroepen worden collectief aangeduid met ``candidiasis`.

 Een zeer veel voorkomende schimmelinfectie is de vaginale Candida infectie. In de schede wordt een zuur milieu

 in stand gehouden, waarin de meest ziekteverwekkers geen kans van overleven hebben. Dit zure milieu, een door

 het lichaam opgeworpen barrière, kan worden aangetast door het gebruik van (intiem) spray`s, verschillende

 soorten zeep, het gebruik van antibiotica en de pil. Ziekteverwekkers krijgen hierdoor de kans een ontsteking te

 veroorzaken.

 De Candida albicans bevindt zich vaker op de schaamlippen en in het gebied tussen schede en anus, dan in de

 vagina zelf. De klachten hiervan zijn, soms een vreselijke jeuk of een branderige pijn aan de schaamlippen en

 vagina met een gelig-groene afscheiding. De schaamlippen kunnen rood en gezwollen zijn. Ook houdt de Candida

 zich veelvuldig op in de plasbuis en de blaas. Plassen kan dan een branderige pijn veroorzaken en moet men vaak

 plassen met kleine beetjes tegelijk. Vaak zijn er echter geen klachten met plassen, maar alleen onverklaarbaar

 vaak een schimmelinfectie van de vagina. Dit komt doordat deze steeds weer vanuit de plasbuis wordt besmet.

 Dr. Paul Belaiche, hoofd van de afdeling ``Phytotherapie`` van de medische faculteit van de Universiteit van Parijs

 heeft de werking van Tea Tree onderzocht tegen chronische vaginale infecties met Candida albicans. Alleen Tea

 Tree etherische olie kon plaatselijk, 2 maanden lang, zonder irritaties van de slijmvliezen worden gebruikt en gaf

 de beste bestrijdingsresultaten tegen de schimmel. De vrouwen in zijn onderzoek gebruikten iedere avond 2

 centigram (ong. 1 druppel) Tea Tree olie in een gelatine capsule. (In Amerika werden bij een onderzoek tampons met verdunde

 Tea Tree olie gebruikt) De olie werkte plaatselijk, hielp afvalstoffen te verwijderen en stimuleerde de lymfevaten om

 een snelle genezing te bevorderen. Na één maand waren van de 29 patiënten er 21 genezen en 7 hadden geen

 klachten meer. Slechts één vrouw kon de plaatselijke behandeling niet verdragen. De gemiddelde leeftijd van de

 vrouwen was 39 jaar. Naast de Tea Tree kan een vaginale schimmelinfectie ook uitstekend behandeld worden met

 onze Candida olie, een compositie van verschillende schimmeldodende oliën. Een inwendige Candida woekering

 kan effectief met een Pulser kuur bestreden worden.

                                                                                            ..»

 Jeuk in de oren kan een aanwijzing voor een candida infectie zijn. De huid van de gehoorgang is schilferig en er is

 een overmatige afscheiding van wit-gelig oorsmeer. Dagelijks druppelen met onze schimmel-olie kan uitkomst

 bieden.

 Een wit-gelige waas over de tong en bij het proeven van zuren soms een prikkelend gevoel kunnen een aanduiding

 voor candida zijn. Vaak gaat de infectie in de mond samen met een oorinfectie. Via de buis van Eustachius

 verspreidt de Candida zich van de mondholte naar de oren, waar de oorsmeerklier de favoriete uitvalsbasis van de

 candida vormt. Kook uw tandenborstel 1 x per week uit en spoel dagelijks met een Tea Tree oplossing.

 Steeds weerkerende bijholte- en voorhoofdsholteontstekingen zijn maar al te vaak Candida infecties. Gebruik van

 de voor deze aandoeningen veel voorgeschreven antibiotica verergert de infectie. Ook hier kunnen

 schimmeldodende etherische oliën uitkomst bieden.

 De bittere Sinaasappelboom komt oorspronkelijk uit China en levert verschillende etherische oliën. Uit de schil

 perst men de olie van de Bittere Sinaasappel, uit de bloesem wordt de Neroli gedistilleerd en uit de jonge twijgen

 met bladeren distilleert men de Petitgrain bigarade. Vroeger werd deze olie geperst uit de zeer jonge vruchten,

 vandaar de naam `Petit-grain`. De olie is lichtgeel tot amberkleurig, heeft een frisse bloemige citrusgeur en is één

 van de voornaamste ingrediënten van Eau de Cologne. De belangrijkste producenten zijn Frankrijk, Italië en

 Tunesië. Goedkopere olie komt uit Marokko, Algerijë en West-Afrika. Wordt veel gebruikt als geurstof in de

 cosmetische industrie en als smaakstof voor vooral snoepgoed. Petitgrain is een zonnige rustgevende olie, speciaal

 voor de hartstreek. Het verzacht de pijn en de druk rondom het hart en versterkt het zenuwstelsel. Wordt veel

 toegepast bij een onzuivere huid, overmatige transpiratie, vette huid en haren. Het is bovendien een uitstekend

 natuurlijk sedativum.

 Vaak kan de werking van een etherische olie worden versterkt door deze te combineren met andere etherische

 oliën. In meerdere toepassingen vindt u zulke composities. Niet iedereen heeft voldoende kennis of heeft niet alle

 te gebruiken oliën in bezit om dergelijke combinaties te kunnen maken. Wij bieden de mogelijkheid deze

 composities voor u te maken, prijzen en informatie kunt u aanvragen bij etherische-olie@tref.nl

 Gebruik Petitgrain bij o.a.; onreine huid, vet haar, overmatige transpiratie, acne, rosacea, hartkloppingen,

 slapeloosheid, hartkrampen, hartbeklemming, angstgevoelens, depressiviteit en nervositeit. U ontvangt van ons

 bij iedere etherische olie een uitgebreide beschrijving. Hier een paar toepassingen van Petitgrain:

 als zinneprikkelende huid olie; 2 druppels Petitgrain, 1 druppel Jasmijn en 1 druppel Roos mengen in 50 ml.

 Amandelolie en met dit mengsel het lichaam na het baden licht masseren.

 bij hartkrampen; 2 druppels Petitgrain, 4 druppels Helicryse en 2 druppels Lavendel in 1 eetlepel Jojoba-olie

 mengen, met dit mengsel de hartstreek licht masseren.

 bij nervositeit; meng 6 druppels Petitgrain in een eetlepel basis olie en wrijf dit mengsel licht over het gehele

 lichaam.

 bij acne, rosacea; 4 druppels Helicryse, 2 druppels Citroen, 2 druppel Lavendel, 2 druppels Petitgrain en 1 druppel

 Rozemarijn in 2 eetlepels St. Janskruid-olie mengen, met dit mengsel dagelijks licht masseren.

 bij slapeloosheid; 10 tot 15 druppels Petitgrain in een beetje melk of honing mengen en dit mengsel aan een warm

 bad toevoegen. Hierin voor het naar bed gaan 15 tot 20 minuten baden.

Helicryse (Strobloem)

                                                   Helicrysum italicum

                                klik op eerste letter om terug te gaan naar overzicht van alle oliën

 

 De naam Helicryse is afgeleid van de Griekse woorden `helios`, wat zon betekent en `chrysos` wat goud betekent.

 De bloemen behouden hun helder gele kleur ook als ze gedroogd worden, vandaar de Franse naam `immortelle`,

 onsterfelijk. In Nederland wordt de plant `strobloem` genoemd omdat de bloemen langzaam verdrogen en vaak een

 onmisbaar onderdeel van droogboeketten zijn. Helicryse is inheems in de landen rond de Middellandse Zee. Als je

 de bloemen tussen je vingers fijnwrijft verspreiden ze een kerrie-achtige geur, daarom wordt de plant ook wel

 Kerrieplant genoemd. De plant bevat maar weinig olie en het gehalte neemt tijdens de bloeitijd steeds verder af.

 Omdat alleen de bloemhoofdjes en het bovenste deel van de plant voor distillatie gebruikt worden, is er veel

 plantenmateriaal nodig. De kleur van de olie varieërt van groengeel tot oranjerood en geurt sterk kruidig met een

 theegeur als ondertoon. Wordt veel gebruikt in parfum, in zitbaden en huidverzorging. Een interessante

 eigenschap is het tegengaan van bloedstolsels, daarom is Helicryse zeer geschikt bij de behandeling van

 spierletsels en verstuikingen waarbij hematomen ontstaan. Helicryse wordt ook wel de Arnica onder de etherische

 oliën genoemd. De olie is zelfs in staat oude bloedstolsels op te lossen. Helicryse kan evenals Geranium en

 Basilicum het gebruik van insuline verminderen .

 Vaak kan de werking van een etherische olie worden versterkt door deze te combineren met andere etherische

 oliën. In meerdere toepassingen vindt u zulke composities. Niet iedereen heeft voldoende kennis of heeft niet alle

 te gebruiken oliën in bezit om dergelijke combinaties te kunnen maken. Wij bieden de mogelijkheid deze

 composities voor u te maken, prijzen en informatie kunt u aanvragen bij etherische-olie@tref.nl

 Gebruik Helicryse o.a. bij; hartklachten, abcessen, blauwe plekken, acne, dermatitis, steenpuisten, ontstekingen,

 eczeem, spierletsels, verstuikingen, bloeduitstortingen, kneuzingen, herpes, neusverkoudheid, sinusitis,

 aderontstekingen, bacteriële infecties, griep, koorts, verkoudheid, zenuwpijn, lethargie, stress, aambeien, aanleg

 voor spataderen, astma, bronchitis, acne, rosacea, slijmvorming, allergische huiduitslag, mediteren, te hoge

 bloedsuiker spiegel, leverklachten, voor een betere doorbloeding. Helicryse is goed te combineren met Lavendel,

 Citrus oliën, Scharlei en Neroli. U ontvangt van ons bij iedere etherische olie een uitgebreide beschrijving. Hier

 enige toepassingen van Helicryse:

 bij blauwe plekken; meng 7 druppels Helicryse, 3 druppels Jatamansi en 7 druppels Marjolein met 100 ml.

 Calendula-olie. Masseer dagelijks.

 bij bloeduitstortingen en oude blauwe plekken; 1 druppel Helicryse puur of verdund aanbrengen.

 bij bloeduitstortingen; 4 druppels Helicryse, 2 druppels Tea Tree en 2 druppels Lavendel in 1 eetlepel Jojoba olie

 mengen, met dit mengsel de plekken meermaals dagelijks insmeren. Pijnstillend !

 bij herpes; 3 druppels Helicryse, 2 druppels Niaouli en 1 druppel Ravensara mengen met 1 eetlepel basis olie.

 Direct als u de blaasjes voelt opkomen 5 dagen lang, 3-4x per dag met dit mengsel aanstippen of deppen.

 bij hartkrampen; 4 druppels Helicryse, 2 druppels Petitgrain en 2 druppels Lavendel in 1 eetlepel Jojoba olie

 mengen, met dit mengsel de hartstreek licht masseren.

 bij koude onderbenen; 2 druppels Helicryse en 2 druppels Kaneelschors mengen in 10 ml. basis olie. Dagelijks

 masseren met dit mengsel zorgt voor een betere doorbloeding.

 als goede slijmoplosser bij neusverkoudheid, sinusitis, bronchitis; meng 4 druppels Helicryse, 1 druppel Marjolein

 en 1 druppel Rozemarijn in een schaaltje heet water en damp 1-3x per dag.

 als slijmoplosser bij allergische problemen, vooral bij slijmvorming in de neus en niezen; meng 4 druppels

 Helicryse en 2 druppels Roomse Kamille in een schaaltje heet water en damp.

 verdampen: Helicryse is psychisch een sterke olie die nuttig kan zijn voor mensen die zich snel verbolgen voelen,

 hun woede inhouden of juist tonen en/of voortdurend negatief zijn. Helicryse activeert de rechter hersenhelft,

 steunt dus bij meditaties en creatief denken. Verdamp 6-8 druppels in de aromalamp.

Sporen van dermatofyten zijn in onze leefomgeving in ruime mate aanwezig, zodat contact met schimmels nooit

 helemaal te vermijden is. Lang niet altijd is het duidelijk waar iemand een infectie heeft opgelopen. Behalve aan de

 voeten kunnen schimmels ook op andere plaatsen van het lichaam de huid infecteren. Enige voorbeelden hiervan

 zijn:

 

      ringworm of trichofytie, zich uitbreidende rode schilferende plekken die in het midden vanzelf weer genezen

      waardoor de ringvormige structuur ontstaat. Veroorzaakt ook baardschurft.

      spruw of candidosis is een schimmelinfectie in de mond veroorzaakt door schimmels uit de Candida groep

      candidiasis veroorzaakt door Candida albicans is een vaginale of darm infectie, die door het gehele lichaam

      kan gaan woekeren.

      schimmelinfectie aan de vingernagels, deze is gemakkelijker te behandelen dan een infectie aan de

      teennagels.

 De gevoeligheid voor een schimmelinfectie verschilt van persoon tot persoon. Dit uit zich in het feit dat onder

 dezelfde omstandigheden lang niet iedereen een schimmelinfectie oploopt. Ook zal per individu de behandeling

 meer of minder goed kunnen aanslaan en infecties al of niet de neiging hebben om terug te komen en chronisch te

 worden. Dit betekent dat iemand die van een schimmelinfectie is genezen, een grote kans heeft op herinfectie.

 Al deze schimmelinfecties zijn effectief te bestrijden met Tea Tree etherische olie. Omdat deze infecties vaak zeer

 hardnekkig zijn is het belangrijk de behandeling consequent uit te voeren en na genezing zeker nog enige weken

 na te behandelen.

  Als u vragen heeft over de behandeling van schimmelinfecties met etherische oliën kunt u deze stellen via e-mail

                                      schimmelinfectie@tref.nl

 

 

       albicans, een Candida schimmel, eurytrema, Montezuma, enterovirae, endometriase, chlamydia, ozeana, Weil, Pfeiffer, lyme, haakwormen, zweepwormen, lintwormen, spoelwormen, bot,

candidiasis bestrijden met colloïdaal zilver. Bij ME, ME/CVS en HPU (hyperpyrolactamurie) speelt Candida een rol.

 Deze test bestaat uit 3 delen t.w. A - B en C. De vragen in deel A hebben hoofdzakelijk betrekking op medicamenten en klachten die al wat

 langer geleden zijn. In deel B vindt u een lijstje met klachten die nauw aan een Candida infectie verbonden zijn. De symptomen in lijst C

 kunnen door Candida veroorzaakt worden, er kunnen echter ook andere oorzaken zijn. In combinatie met symptomen uit lijst B wijzen ze

 meestal wel op Candidiasis

   Laat deze lijsten uitprinten, u kunt ze dan later invullen en bewaren ter controle na een eventuele behandeling.

 De volgende bijdrage is van Elke Vlasveld. Elke heeft 23 jaar lang ME gehad waarvan 6 jaar in zeer ernstige vorm.

 Omdat de reguliere geneeskunde haar niet kon helpen is zij zelf op zoek gegaan en vond methoden om ME het

 hoofd te bieden. Zij is nu voor 95% genezen en wil haar kennis graag doorgeven. Bij haar speurtocht naar genezing

 vond zij ook de Pulser, een apparaatje wat d.m.v. zwakke stroomstootjes in staat is vele parasieten, o.a. de beruchte

 Candida albicans en andere ziekteverwekkers te doden. Deze ontdekking heeft heel veel bijgedragen aan de

 genezing van Elke. Hier volgt haar verhaal over de Pulser:

 Candida albicans is een gistje dat van nature voorkomt in het menselijk lichaam, maar onder bepaalde

 omstandigheden kan gaan woekeren. Dit levert dan een scala aan problemen op. De eigenlijke bedoeling van

 Candida albicans is, om het lichaam biologisch afbreekbaar te maken: wanneer een mens het tijdelijke voor het

 eeuwige verwisselt, worden de eiwitten in het lichaam afgebroken tot o.a. suikers. Dit stijgende gehalte aan suikers

 is voor Candida albicans het signaal: Persoon Overleden, Opruimen! Problemen ontstaan er pas, als het gehalte aan

 suikers door stofwisselingsproblemen of voeding verhoogd wordt, en de Candida albicans je gaat "opruimen" terwijl

 je nog leeft!

 

 Zo kan het gebeuren dat er uitwendige, plaatselijke infecties onstaan, bijv. in de mond, oren of vagina. Ernstiger

 wordt het, als de Candida albicans in het spijsverteringssysteem of bloed gaat woekeren. In dit stadium spreekt

 men van Candidiasis zeer berucht en helaas door vele huisartsen en internisten niet of niet tijdig ontdekt. Deze

 ernstige vorm van Candida albicans woekering komt veel voor bij ME/CVS (Chronisch vermoeidheids syndroom).

 De meest bekende en opvallende symptomen van Candidiasis zijn.

 

            vermoeidheid/uitputting

            concentratiestoornissen.

            diarree of juist verstopping

            hoofdpijn

            winderigheid

            beslagen tong, prikkelend gevoel bij proeven van zuren info

            snel geïrriteerd zijn

            slecht slapen, slaapritmestoornissen

            overgevoelig voor parfum/sigarettenrook

            buikpijn, "spastische darm"

            verstoorde suikerstofwisseling (hypoglykemie, veel trek in zoet)

            gelig-groenige afscheiding uit de vagina, soms branderig gevoel info

            jeuk

            jeuk in de oren, schilfering, overmatige afscheiding van oorsmeer info

            chronische bijholte ontstekingen info

                                          behandeling

 

 Een Candida albicanswoekering levert een scala aan klachten op, een aantal van de 79 bekende allergenen die de

 schimmel produceert zijn ook nog eens verantwoordelijk voor veel van de voedselintoleranties. Koemelk, gluten

 en suikers zijn de meest voorkomende allergiën/intoleranties en kunnen zorgen voor veel narigheid, zoals

 vermoeidheid, hoofdpijn, buikpijn, winderigheid. Het zich onthouden van de boosdoeners is gewoonlijk voldoende

 om de klachten te beeindigen. Veel voorkomend zijn ook allergische reacties op cosmetica.

 Voor de bestrijding van welke soort van (Candida albicans) infectie dan ook geldt: hoe consequenter je bent en hoe

 meer je bereid bent er voor te doen, hoe meer resultaat je mag verwachten. Er is geen mens hetzelfde, daarom kan

 de behandeling van persoon tot persoon variëren. Hoofdpunten van de behandeling zijn :

 

                 de Pulser, bestrijding Candida en aanhangende ziekteverwekkers

                 colloïdaal zilver innemen ter ondersteuning natuurlijke afweer

                 behandeling van de uitwendige infecties met etherische oliën

                 alle soorten suikers beperken (tenminste tijdens de kuur)

                 1½ liter water per dag drinken

                 candidawerende supplementen innemen (caprylzuur van Solgar)

                 eventueel testen op voedselintorelanties en/of allergiën

                 eventueel testen op HPU (hemopyrrollactamurie)

                 gifstoffen uit het lichaam verwijderen

 Colloïdaal zilver, de Pulser, het behandelen van eventuele uitwendige infecties en het drastisch beperken van de

 inname van suikers is de aangewezen therapie bij een Candida albicans woekering.

 

            

                                       dagelijkse behandeling

 

                 4 weken lang 3x7 min. pulsen (met 2x20 min. pauze)

                 3 maanden lang 3x per dag 1 kleine eetlepel (6 ml.) colloïdaal zilver

                 eventueel voedselsupplement innemen

                 dagelijks uitwendige infecties behandelen

                 dagelijks 1½ liter water drinken

                 caprylzuur innemen (verkrijgbaar bij apotheek of drogist)

                                             Suikers

 

 Suikers komen van nature voor in verschillende voedingsmiddelen. Door het raffineren van grondstoffen krijgen we

 allerlei voedingsmiddelen die zoveel suikers/koolhydraten kunnen bevatten, dat het spijsverteringskanaal er de

 kluts van kwijtraakt en er problemen ontstaan, bijv. hypoglykemie en Candidawoekeringen. Onder suikers worden

 verstaan: kristalsuiker (bietsuiker), rietsuiker, fructose, honing, glucose, tarwestroop, bietsuikerstroop,

 rietsuikerstroop, melasse(stroop), ahornstroop, maisstroop, rijst(mout)stroop, dextrose, saccharose, maltose,

 lactose, ook alle zoetstoffen dextrine, saccharine, aspartaam etc. worden door het lichaam als suiker gezien. Bij

 twijfel of iets al dan niet een suiker is, geldt ... Niet gebruiken !

 Geraffineerde produkten, bijv. wit tarwemeel, fijn maismeel, fijn rijstemeel, witbrood, witte pasta etc. worden door

 het lichaam razendsnel omgezet in suikers.

 Na het eten van bovenstaande voedingsmiddelen volgt een snelle stijging van de bloedsuikers: je voelt je prettig.

 Onmiddelijk daarna produceert de alvleesklier een flinke dosis insuline, om het bloedsuikerpeil met hetzelfde

 noodtempo weer te laten dalen: je voelt je lang zo lekker niet meer en als een echte "junk" krijg je trek in MEER !

 De eerste 1 á 2 weken dat je deze voedingsmiddelen niet meer gebruikt, kun je "ontwenningsverschijnselen"

 krijgen: slap, slaperig, futloos, snel geïrriteerd, gigantische trek in zoet (ik had steeds visioenen van spekkies en

 mokkapunten, die ik alletwee verfoei).

 Daarna gaat je lichaam mokkend en sputterend energie betrekken uit volwaardige voedingsmiddelen: daar krijgen

 je weliswaar niet zoveel energie tegelijk van, maar er wordt ook minder insuline afgescheiden, waardoor een

 regelmatig beeld ontstaat: minder trek in tussendoortjes, meer energie, minder "dips".

 Ook gewichtsverlies kan op deze manier gemakkelijker worden bewerkstelligd.

                                              Pulser

 

 De Pulser is een apparaatje, werkend op een 9-volt batterijtje, dat zeer zwakke stroompulsen door het lichaam

 stuurt. De frequentie van deze stroomstootjes is zo gekozen dat bij dagelijks gebruik de meeste in het lichaam

 aanwezige ziekteverwekkers (virussen, bacteriën, gisten, schimmels en vele één- en meercellige parasieten)

 worden vernietigd, zonder de voor het lichaam belangrijke micro-organismen aan te tasten.

 De werking waarop de Pulser is gebaseerd, werd ondekt door dr. Hulda Clark, een Amerikaanse microbiologe. Zij

 deed lange tijd onderzoek naar het effect van elektrische stroom op parasieten. De éne keer werkte het wel, de

 andere keer vreemd genoeg niet.

 Pas toen haar zoon om haar te plagen een draagbaar apparaat voor haar bouwde, "zodat moeders dag en nacht, ook

 op vakantie onderzoek kon doen", werkte het perfect. Het bleek de gelijkstroom uit de batterij te zijn die de

 parasieten doodde. De stroomstootjes uit de Pulser bereiken geen holle ruimten, zoals bijv. de darm. Door deze

 unieke werking blijven de voor het menselijk lichaam noodzakelijke micro-organismen gespaard.

 Bij Candida albicans moet de Pulser gedurende 4 weken dagelijks gebruikt worden. Tegelijkertijd wordt er grondig

 afgerekend met allerlei andere "ongewenste bezoekers".

 Schakel de Pulser in en houd de metalen handgrepen van het apparaat 7 min. lang vast. 20 minuten pauseren en

 weer 7 min. "pulsen" . Nochmaals 20 min. pauseren en nog een keer 7 min. "pulsen"

 Maak deze serie altijd af. Na de eerste 7 min. komen namelijk de parasieten die de Candida schimmel bij zich draagt

 vrij ! Het is zelfs mogelijk dat ook dié weer parasieten hebben, zodat een derde keer "pulsen" noodzakelijk is. Doe

 je dit niet, dan kan er bijvoorbeeld uit een blaasontstekingbacterie een verkoudheidsvirus loskomen. Ik voorspel je

 dan een pittige verkoudheid, zakdoeken paraat houden !!

 Na het eerste gebruik van de Pulser kun je je behoorlijk beroerd voelen, dit komt door de enorme hoeveelheid

 afvalstoffen (miljoenen dode parasieten) die het lichaam plotseling af moet voeren.

 ..

 De Pulser kan een ontelbaar aantal soorten schimmels, virussen en bacteriën onschadelijk maken, een paar

 voorbeelden waar de Pulser zeer effectief is: griep, verkoudheid, sinusitis,voedselvergiftiging, wraak van

 Montezuma, candida, pfeiffer, weil, lyme, spierscheuringen en bandscheuringen, breuken, spoelwormen,

 haakwormen, zweepwormen, lintwormen, bot (eurytrema), Enterovirae

 Ondersteunend bij de behandeling van endometriose, Chlamydia, maden, Ozeana, darminfecties

                                          Colloïdaal zilver

 

 Colloïdaal zilver is een natuurlijk antibioticum zonder de nare bijverschijnselen van de moderne antibiotica, die

 meestal de darmflora een zware slag toebrengen. Het colloïdaal zilver werd ontdekt in de twintiger jaren van de

 vorige eeuw. Puur zilver werd honderden malen gemalen in enorme molens tot het zo fijn was, dat het als ionen in

 water opgelost kon worden. Door deze omslachtige productiemethode was colloïdaal zilver erg duur zo`n $10.000

 per liter en raakte in het vergeetboek door de ontdekking van Ian Fleming, de penicilline. Dit leek een echt

 wondermiddel tegen bacteriële infecties en bovendien goedkoop te produceren. Dat penicilline geen

 alleenzaligmakend middel is, weten we nu. Vele bacteriën zijn resistent geworden voor de gangbare antiobitica en er

 wordt naarstig naar alternatieven gezocht.

 De Amerikaanse arts Paul Farber herontdekte het colloïdaal zilver en bedacht een eenvoudige manier om het te

 maken: de elektrolyse. Bovendien bleek uit zijn onderzoek, dat colloïdaal zilver niet alleen werkzaam is tegen

 bacteriën, maar ook tegen virussen, gisten, schimmels en amoeben.

 Ook de Candida albicans moet het er tegen afleggen wanneer het samen met de Pulser wordt gebruikt. Vooral het

 opschonen van het spijsverteringskanaal is de taak van het colloïdaal zilver in deze behandeling.

                                             H.P.U.

 

 H.P.U. (hemopyrrollactamurie) is een zeer recent ontdekte ziekte. Dr. J. Kamsteeg van het KEAC te Weert

 ontdekte, dat bij ongeveer 15% van de mensen, grotendeels vrouwen, vanaf de geboorte vitamine B6, zink en

 mangaan wordt uitgescheiden via de nieren. Bij dit proces worden een aantal zeer belangrijke levereiwitten

 afgebroken. De verschijnselen op lange termijn lijken zoveel op ME, dat er aan een verband gedacht moet worden.

 Zeer vele ME-patiënten testen dan ook positief. H.P.U. kan behandeld worden met een speciale cocktail van B6,

 zink en mangaan, die eenvoudigweg niet uitgeplast kan worden. Wilt u meer informatie mail dan met elke@tref.nl

Introduction

 

 

                      Captain Cook named this tree, after finding that its aromatic, resinous

                      leaves made a satisfying substitute for proper tea. One hundred and fifty

                      years later, an Australian government chemist named A. R. Penfold studied

                      tea tree leaves and discovered their strong antiseptic properties. Tea tree oil

                      subsequently became a standard treatment in Australia for the prevention

                      and treatment of wound infections. During World War II, the Australian

                      government classified tea tree oil as an essential commodity and exempted

                      producers from military service.

 

                      However, tea tree oil fell out of favor when antibiotics became widely

                      available.

What Is Tea Tree Used for Today?

 

 

                      There is little question that tea tree oil is an effective antiseptic, active

                      against many bacteria and fungi, including some that are resistant to

                      antibiotics.1,2 It also possesses a penetrating quality that may make it

                      particularly useful for treating infected wounds. However, it is probably not

                      effective as an oral antibiotic.

 

                      Preliminary double-blind studies have found tea tree oil may be an effective

                      treatment for athlete's foot and other fungal infections of the skin and

                      nails.3,4

 

                      Like other topical antibiotics, tea tree oil may help control acne when

                      applied to the skin directly.5

 

                      Preliminary studies also hint that it could be useful for treating vaginal

                      infections caused by candida or other organisms.6 Tea tree oil has been

                      suggested as a treatment for thrush (oral Candida infection) in people with

                      HIV infection.7

 

                      Australian dentists frequently use tea tree oil mouthwash prior to dental

                      procedures and as a daily preventive against periodontal disease.

 

                      Tea tree oil also appears to possess deodorant properties, probably through

                      suppressing odor-causing bacteria.

                                            Back to Top

                                                   What Is the Scientific Evidence for Tea Tree?

 

 

                      A double-blind placebo-controlled trial followed 104 individuals given either a

                      10% tea tree oil cream, the standard drug tolnaftate, or placebo.8 The

                      results showed that tea tree oil reduced the symptoms of athlete's foot more

                      effectively than placebo, but less effectively than tolnaftate. Neither

                      treatment cured the infection in 100% of the cases, but each treatment

                      cured many cases.

 

                      Another double-blind study followed 112 people with fungal infections of the

                      toenails, comparing 100% tea tree oil to a standard topical antifungal

                      treatment, clotrimazole.9 The results showed equivalent benefits; however,

                      because topical clotrimazole is not regarded as a particularly effective

                      treatment for this condition, the results mean little.

 

                            Dosage

 

 

                      Tea tree preparations contain various percentages of tea tree oil. For

                      treating acne, the typical strength is 5 to 15%; for fungal infections, 70 to

                      100% is usually used; and for use as a vaginal douche (with medical

                      supervision), 1 to 40% concentrations have been used. It is usually applied

                      2 to 3 times daily, until symptoms resolve. However, tea tree oil can be

                      irritating to the skin, so start with low concentrations until you know your

                      tolerance.

 

                      The best tea tree products contain oil from the alternifolia species of

                      Melaleuca only, standardized to contain not more than 10% cineole (an

                      irritant) and at least 30% terpinen-4-ol. Oil from a specially bred variant of

                      tea tree may have increased activity against microorganisms, while irritating

                      the skin less.10

 

Safety Issues

 

 

                      Like other essential oils, tea tree oil can be toxic if taken orally in excessive

                      doses. Since the maximum safe dosage has not been determined, we

                      recommend using it only topically, where it is believed to be quite safe.

                      However, don't get it in your eye or it will sting badly.

 

                      In addition, an increasing number of cases of skin inflammation caused by

                      allergy to tea tree oil have been reported.11

 

                      Safety in young children, pregnant or nursing women, or those with severe

                      liver or kidney disease has not been established.

 

Introduction

 

 

                      Candida albicans is a naturally occurring yeast that flourishes in moist

                      areas, such as the digestive tract, the vagina, and skin folds. Ordinarily, its

                      population is kept in check by bacteria that live in the same areas. When

                      normal bacteria are disturbed by antibiotics, however, yeast populations can

                      grow to abnormally high levels.

 

                      For women, the most common symptom of excess candida is a vaginal

                      yeast infection, as marked by itchiness, redness, burning on urination, and

                      a yeasty odor. However, candida can also overpopulate in the mouth

                      (thrush), in the warm moist environment under a diaper (diaper rash), and in

                      other areas.

 

                      Candida usually confines itself to the surface of mucous membranes and

                      does not penetrate deeply into the body. However, in people whose immune

                      systems are severely depressed, such as those with AIDS or leukemia,

                      candida can become a dangerous, invasive organism. The medical name for

                      this rare and dire condition is systemic candidiasis.

 

                      Besides this official meaning, systemic candidiasis has another meaning

                      that was coined in the world of alternative medicine. As used there, it is a

                      loose term connoting a whole syndrome of symptoms believed to be related

                      to candida. Equivalent terms are chronic candida, the yeast syndrome, the

                      yeast hypersensitivity syndrome, or just plain candida for short.

 

                      Conventional medicine does not recognize the existence of this alternative

                      syndrome. However, for several years it was practically impossible to walk

                      into an alternative practitioner's office and not walk out with the diagnosis of

                      candida. Fortunately, this excess enthusiasm has cooled in recent years.

                      Among people who believe that they have a candida problem, perhaps 1 in

                      20 will benefit significantly from treatment for it. Candida is more a fad than

                      a reality. Nonetheless, it has some reality behind it as well.

 

                      The story of "the yeast syndrome" begins in 1983, when Orion Truss

                      published The Missing Diagnosis. This was followed by William Crook's

                      much more famous The Yeast Connection. These books claim that a

                      person who is chronically colonized by too much candida may develop an

                      allergy-like hypersensitivity to it. The symptoms of this allergy are said to be

                      similar to those of other allergies, including sinus congestion, fatigue,

                      intestinal gas, difficulty concentrating, depression, muscle aches, and many

                      other common complaints.

 

                      The regimen outlined by Dr. Crook consists of two parts: treatments that

                      tend toward diminishing the total body burden of candida; and less

                      convincing recommendations that attempt to lessen allergic reactions

                      toward yeast in general.

 

                      To decrease the amount of yeast in the body, Dr. Crook recommends

                      avoiding certain substances, including antibiotics, corticosteroids, birth

                      control pills, sugar, and most sweet foods (it is his contention that dietary

                      sugar "feeds yeast"). He also recommends the use of various supplements

                      and even strong prescription drugs to directly kill yeast or at least interfere

                      with its growth.

 

                      Next, Dr. Crook recommends avoiding foods containing yeast of any type,

                      for he believes that those who are allergic to candida will also be allergic to

                      other members of the fungus family. Thus Dr. Crook forbids fermented

                      foods, such as beer, cheese, breads containing baker's yeast, tomato paste

                      (which has a significant mold content), and even mushrooms.

 

                      Some of these recommendations seem far-fetched. Although both

                      mushrooms and candida fall into the broad category of fungi, they are not

                      very closely related. Cats and elephants are both mammals, for example,

                      but an allergy to one does not generally imply an allergy to the other. It is

                      difficult to believe that those with sensitivity to candida should also

                      cross-react with food mushrooms, and we have seldom seen it in real life.

 

                      Similarly, candida and baker's yeast bear only a distant relationship.

                      Although many people with apparent candida problems do in fact react

                      negatively to bread, it may not be the yeast in the bread that is causing the

                      problem. People with allergies to candida are basically highly allergenic

                      people. They may simply be allergic to the wheat in bread rather than to the

                      yeast. After all, wheat is the second most common food allergen.

 

                      There is no conventional medical treatment for yeast hypersensitivity

                      syndrome because conventional medicine does not recognize its existence.

 

Proposed Treatments for Candida/Yeast

                      Hypersensitivity Syndrome

 

 

                      There is no scientific evidence that any treatment can reduce the symptoms

                      caused by oversensitivity to candida.

 

                      Many treatments can reduce the amount of yeast in the body, and people

                      with a genuine allergy to candida may feel better once this is achieved.

                      Unfortunately, it isn't possible to eliminate Candida albicans permanently.

                      No matter how successful a treatment may be, as soon as it is stopped,

                      candida will return. It has to because it is a natural inhabitant of the body.

                      However, we know from other conditions, such as vaginal yeast infections,

                      that sufficient intake of probiotics, or "friendly" bacteria, can help keep yeast

                      regrowth within reasonable bounds. It is probably best to use a mixture of

                      organisms, including acidophilus, bulgaricus, and bifidus. The daily dose

                      should provide 3 to 10 billion viable organisms.

 

                      Agents that may reduce the amount of yeast in the body include capryllic

                      acid, grapefruit seed extract, betaine hydrochloride, peppermint oil, oregano

                      oil, lavender oil, tea tree oil, barberry, red thyme, pau d'arco also called

                      lapacho, and garlic. However, the scientific foundation for the use of these

                      treatments is weak, and the appropriate dosage of each has not been

                      determined. Some of these treatments may be toxic if taken to excess or

                      for prolonged periods.

 

                      Other Treatments

 

                      As mentioned earlier, proponents of the candida syndrome further believe

                      that it is important to restrict sugar in the diet, even fruit sugar. This concept

                      is based on the idea that "sugar feeds yeast." However, there is no

                      scientific evidence that dietary sugar increases the growth of candida. They

                      also recommend eliminating all foods with high mold content, such as

                      alcoholic drinks, peanuts, cheeses, bread, and dried fruits. Although these

                      foods cannot increase the amount of candida in your body, they contain

                      yeasts that you could conceivably be allergic to.

 

Introduction

 

 

                      There are three main causes of vaginal infections: the fungus (yeast)

                      Candida albicans, the parasite Trichomonas vaginalis, and the bacterial

                      organism Gardnerella vaginalis.

 

                      Factors that can contribute to vaginal infections include the use of

                      antibiotics (which kill friendly bacteria, allowing yeast to grow),

                      corticosteroids and HIV (which suppress the immune system), oral

                      contraceptives and pregnancy (which alter the vaginal environment by

                      changing hormone levels), and diabetes (increased sugar levels provide a

                      friendly environment for yeast).

 

                      Conventional medical treatment for vaginal infections caused by Candida

                      include vaginal suppositories containing antifungal medications, or in some

                      cases, oral antifungal medications. Women with diabetes often find that

                      yeast infections are less common when their blood sugar levels are well

                      controlled.

 

                      Trichomonas infections are treated with oral metronidazole and Gardnerella

                      infections with oral or vaginal metronidazole or vaginal clindamycin.

 

 

Proposed Treatments for Vaginal Infection

 

 

                      There are some promising natural treatments for vaginal infections caused

                      by Candida and other organisms, but the scientific evidence for them is not

                      yet strong.

 

                      Acidophilus

 

                      Friendly bacteria such as acidophilus are normally found in the vagina.

                      When colonies of these organisms are present, it is difficult for unfriendly

                      organisms such as Candida to become established. For this reason,

                      women have been advised to use yogurt or other products containing

                      acidophilus, both orally and in vaginal suppositories, to prevent or treat

                      yeast infections. Although this practice seems to make good sense, there

                      is surprisingly little evidence to support it.1,2

 

                      An unblinded crossover trial of 33 women with recurrent vaginitis found that

                      those who ate yogurt containing Lactobacillus acidophilus for 6 months had

                      a decreased incidence of vaginal infections during the year of the study.3

                      However, many of the women refused to participate in the non-yogurt portion

                      of the study after obtaining good results, and only 13 completed the study

                      to the end. This, along with the lack of blinding, makes the results of the

                      study unreliable.

 

                      In an uncontrolled trial of 38 women who had not responded to conventional

                      treatments, a vaginal douche of L. acidophilus twice daily along with a

                      vitamin B supplement produced normal vaginal flora in 76% of the women 1

                      week after treatment.4 In another uncontrolled study of 28 women with

                      recurrent vaginitis, participants were given vaginal suppositories containing

                      Lactobacillus to be inserted twice daily for 7 days.5 All of the women

                      reported subjective improvement, which was confirmed with pelvic exam.

                      However, because these studies were not controlled, the results are less

                      than reliable.

 

                      Nonetheless, there are good reasons to believe that increasing the

                      population of friendly bacteria in the vagina will tend to prevent infections.

                      Both oral and topical use of acidophilus should have this effect.

 

                      Although many available products purport to contain acidophilus, a study of

                      a variety of health food products found that many contained few or no active

                      organisms.6 For this reason, it may be preferable to use live-culture yogurt.

 

                      Tea Tree Oil

 

                      Tea tree oil, an essential oil from the plant Melaleuca alternifolia, possesses

                      antibacterial and antifungal properties,7 and appears to spare friendly

                      bacteria in the Lactobacillus family.8

 

                      Tea tree oil has been tried for various forms of vaginal infection, but there is

                      little scientific evidence as yet that it works. In an uncontrolled trial, 96

                      women with trichomonal vaginitis were treated with tampons saturated in tea

                      tree oil and left in the vagina for 24 hours, followed by daily vaginal douches

                      with a tea tree oil solution.9 The researcher reported good results with this

                      regimen in 3 to 4 weeks. However, the study was poorly designed and has

                      not been replicated.

 

                      If you wish to try tea tree oil, keep in mind that it can cause irritation to the

                      skin and mucous membranes.10

 

                      Boric Acid

 

                      Boric acid is a chemical substance with antiseptic properties. A

                      double-blind comparison study of 108 women with yeast infections found

                      that 92% of those who used boric acid suppositories nightly for 2 weeks

                      experienced full recovery, as compared to 64% of those given suppositories

                      of the standard antifungal drug nystatin.11

 

                      Another small uncontrolled study of boric acid suppositories in women with

                      chronic vaginal yeast infections also found benefit.12

 

                      However, there are safety concerns with boric acid. If taken internally, it is

                      quite toxic. For this reason, it should not be applied to open wounds. In

                      addition, it should not be used by pregnant women, nor applied to the skin

                      of infants.13

 

                      Other Herbs and Supplements

 

                      Various tropical plants appear to possess antifungal properties, and have

                      been tested as possible treatments for candidal yeast infections. The plant

                      Solanum nigrescens has been tested in a single-blind comparison trial

                      against the standard drug nystatin.14 In this study, 100 women with

                      Candida vaginitis treated twice daily for 2 weeks with Solanum suppositories

                      showed results equivalent to those given nystatin suppositories. However,

                      this plant can be toxic, and should not be used except under physician

                      supervision.

 

                      One preliminary study suggests bee propolis may be helpful for treating

                      vaginal infections.15

 

                      Test tube studies have found antifungal properties from numerous other

                      herbs, including the tropical tree Tabeuia avellanedae,16 garlic extracts,

                      17,18,19 the plant alkaloid berberine sulfate,20 and essential oils of various

                      plants, including cinnamon, eucalyptus, lemongrass, palmarosa, and

                      peppermint.21,22,23 However, it is a long way from such studies to proof of

                      safety and effectiveness in people.

Introduction

 

 

                      Lactobacillus acidophilus is a "friendly" strain of bacteria used to make

                      yogurt and cheese. Although we are born without it, acidophilus soon

                      establishes itself in our intestines and helps prevent intestinal infections.

                      Acidophilus also flourishes in the vagina, where it protects women against

                      yeast infections.

 

                      Acidophilus is one of several microbes known collectively as probiotics

                      (literally, "pro life," indicating that they are bacteria and yeasts that help

                      rather than harm). Others include the bacteria L. bulgaricus, L. reuteri, L.

                      plantarum, L. casei, B. Bifidus, S. salivarius, and S. thermophilus and the

                      yeast Saccharomyces boulardii. Your digestive tract is like a rain forest

                      ecosystem, with billions of bacteria and yeasts rather than trees, frogs, and

                      leopards. Some of these internal inhabitants are more helpful to your body

                      than others. Acidophilus and related probiotics not only help the digestive

                      tract function, they also reduce the presence of less healthful organisms by

                      competing with them for the limited space available.

 

                      Antibiotics can disturb the balance of your "inner rain forest" by killing

                      friendly bacteria. When this happens, harmful bacteria and yeasts can move

                      in and flourish. This is why women taking antibiotics sometimes develop

                      vaginal infections.

 

                      Conversely, it appears that the regular use of probiotics can help prevent

                      vaginal infections and generally improve the health of the gastrointestinal

                      system. Whenever you take antibiotics, you should probably take probiotics

                      as well, and continue them for some time after you are done with the course

                      of treatment. There is reason to believe that regular use of probiotics can

                      reduce your risk of developing infectious diarrhea while traveling through

                      foreign countries. Probiotics may also help prevent diarrhea caused by

                      antibiotics, as well as help prevent and treat childhood diarrhea.

 

 

Sources

 

 

                      Although we believe that they are helpful and perhaps even necessary for

                      human health, we don't have a daily requirement for probiotic bacteria. They

                      are living creatures, not chemicals, so they can sustain themselves in your

                      body unless something comes along to damage them, such as antibiotics.

 

                      Cultured dairy products such as yogurt and kefir are good sources of

                      acidophilus and other probiotic bacteria. Supplements are widely available in

                      powder, liquid, capsule, or tablet form. Grocery stores and natural food

                      stores both carry milk that contains live acidophilus.

 

 

Therapeutic Dosages

 

 

                      Dosages of acidophilus are expressed not in grams or milligrams, but in

                      billions of organisms. A typical daily dose should supply about 3 to 5 billion

                      live organisms. Other probiotic bacteria are used similarly. The typical dose

                      of S. boulardii yeast is 500 mg twice daily (standardized to provide 3 x 1010

                      colony-forming units per gram), to be taken while traveling, or at the start of

                      using antibiotics and continuing for a few days after antibiotics are stopped.

 

                      Because probiotics are not drugs, but rather living organisms that you are

                      trying to transplant to your digestive tract, it is necessary to take the

                      treatment regularly. Each time you do, you reinforce the beneficial bacterial

                      colonies in your body, which may gradually push out harmful bacteria and

                      yeasts growing there.

 

                      The downside of using a living organism is that probiotics may die on the

                      shelf. In fact, a study reported in 1990 found that most acidophilus capsules

                      on the market contained no living acidophilus.1 The container label should

                      guarantee living acidophilus (or bulgaricus, and so on) at the time of

                      purchase, not just at the time of manufacture. Another approach is to eat

                      acidophilus-rich foods such as yogurt, where the bacteria are most likely

                      still alive.

 

                      To treat or prevent vaginal infections, mix 2 tablespoons of yogurt or the

                      contents of a couple of capsules of acidophilus with warm water and use as

                      a douche.

 

                      Finally, in addition to increasing your intake of probiotics, you can take

                      fructo-oligosaccharides, supplements that can promote thriving colonies of

                      helpful bacteria in the digestive tract. (Fructo-oligosaccharides are

                      carbohydrates found in fruit. Fructo means "fruit," and an oligosaccharide is

                      a type of carbohydrate.) Taking this supplement is like putting manure in a

                      garden; it is thought to foster a healthy environment for the bacteria you

                      want to have inside you. The typical daily dose of fructo-oligosaccharides is

                      between 2 and 8 g.

 

 

Therapeutic Uses

 

 

                      Evidence suggests that acidophilus and other probiotics may be helpful for

                      preventing traveler's diarrhea and diarrhea caused by antibiotics, as well as

                      preventing and treating viral diarrhea in children; it may also help irritable

                      bowel syndrome.2–24

 

                      A few preliminary studies suggest that probiotics might be helpful for

                      preventing vaginal yeast infections.25–30

 

                      Preliminary evidence suggests that regular use of probiotics may improve

                      immunity.31,32,33

 

                      Preliminary double-blind trials suggest that probiotics might help prevent

                      heart disease by reducing cholesterol levels.34,35,36

 

                      Probiotics might be helpful in ulcerative colitis.37,38

 

                      According to one small double-blind placebo-controlled trial, probiotics

                      (Bifidobacterium lactis or Lactobacillus GG) may be helpful for reducing

                      eczema symptoms in infants.39

 

                      Probiotic treatment has also been proposed as a treatment for canker sores

                      and Crohn's disease, and as a preventative measure against colon cancer,

                      but there is no solid evidence that it is effective.40

 

                      There is some evidence that probiotics can help reduce symptoms of milk

                      allergies when added to milk.41

 

                      Finally, probiotics may be helpful in a condition known as yeast

                      hypersensitivity syndrome (also known as chronic candidiasis, chronic

                      candida, systemic candidiasis, or just candida). Although this syndrome is

                      not recognized by conventional medicine, some practitioners of alternative

                      medicine believe that it is a common problem that leads to numerous

                      symptoms, including fatigue, digestive problems, frequent sinus infections,

                      muscle pain, and mental confusion. Yeast hypersensitivity syndrome is said

                      to consist of a population explosion of the normally benign candida yeast

                      that live in the vagina and elsewhere in the body, coupled with a type of

                      allergic sensitivity to it. Probiotic supplements are widely recommended for

                      this condition because they establish large, healthy populations of friendly

                      bacteria that compete with the candida that is trying to take up residence.

 

                      A year-long open trial of 150 women found lactobacillus probiotics ineffective

                      for preventing urinary tract infections as compared to cranberry juice or no

                      treatment.42

 

Safety Issues

 

 

                      There are no known safety problems with the use of acidophilus or other

                      probiotics. Occasionally, some people notice a temporary increase in

                      digestive gas.

 

 

Interactions You Should Know About

 

 

                      If you are taking antibiotics, it may be beneficial to take probiotic

                      supplements at the same time, and to continue them for a couple of weeks

                      after you have finished the course of drug treatment. This will help restore

                      the balance of natural bacteria in your digestive tract.

                                 Tea Tree 100% Pure Essential Oil

 

 

                                       In 1923, Dr. A.R. Penfold discovered Tea Tree

                                       oil was 13 times stronger as an antiseptic

                                       bacteriacide than carbolic acid, considered the

                                       universal standard in the early 1900's.

                                        

                                       By 1930, Tea Tree Oil was being applied to

                                       pus-filled infections. It dissolved the pus and left

                                       the surface of the wounds clean and without

                          apparent irritation to the surrounding healthy tissues.

                            

                          Today Australian Tea Tree Oil is known to be an effective

                          antiseptic and fungicide and promotes tissue healing. The

                          following is some suggested therapeutic uses for this oil. This

                          information is for educational purposes only. For serious or

                          persistant problems consult a physician.

                           

                           

                                                General Use

 

                          Externally: Tea Tree oil may be applied directly to the skin to

                          stimulate regeneration of injuries and fight bacterial and fungal

                          infection. If you have sensitive skin, you may want to dilute it

                          with a little olive oil. A Massage Oil can also be used as a

                          carrier oil since it is formulated especially for skin absorption.

                            

                          Internally: To fight infections (bacterial or fungal) take a few

                          drops well diluted with water.

                           

                           

                                                Specific Uses

 

                          Acne - Dab on pure or add to warm water and rinse. You can

                          add it to any facial wash you use.

                           

                          Antiseptic - Many antiseptics are harsh on delicate tissue or

                          are hampered by the presence of pus and other organic matter.

                          Tea tree oil is very effective in the presence of pus and it does

                          not harm healthy tissue. Instead, it promotes the growth and

                          repair of healthy tissue, which lessens the chance of scarring.

                           

                          The oil has been proven effective in dilutions up to 1 part in

                          200 for streptococcus, staphylococcus, typhosis,

                          diphtheria, pneumoccoccus, meningosus, anthasis, and

                          gonocooccus.

                           

                          In addition, the oil has been proven effective against

                          gonococcus at a dilution 1:12,800.

                           

                          Diluted 250:1 in a water base, Tea Tree Oil was effective

                          against Pseudomonas auruginosa, Candida albicans,

                          Staphylococcus aureus, and Aspergilluls niger. Apply full

                          strength to the infected area and/or take internally well diluted

                          in water.

                           

                          Athlete's Feet - Being a fungal based problem, Tea Tree Oil

                          does a great job eliminating the problem. Put 2-3 drops in your

                          palm and add a carrier oil or lotion and apply at least once a

                          day.

                           

                          Boils - Wash the area surrounding the boil thoroughly and

                          then apply full strength with a cotton swab two to four times

                          each day for four days. A gauze pad saturated with the oil may

                          also be applied directly to the boil for up to twelve hours.

                           

                          Bug Buster - We keep a spray bottle mixed with 15 drops of

                          Tea Tree Oil and a quart of water to repel insects. In the

                          summer ants tend to come in our patio door or along the

                          exposed wall. When we see that begin, we spray our natural

                          Bug Buster several times a day for several days and they'll

                          find somewhere else to go. Natural doesn't work fast like

                          chemicals, but then it doesn't kill a little bit of you either!

                          Another favorite bug repellant is Clove Oil which can be found

                          in our Essential Oils area of the site.

                           

                          Burns - Being a non-greasy and volatile oil, Tea Tree Oil is

                          excellent for burns. Any of the oil which has not been

                          absorbed within 10 minutes will evaporate, allowing the skin to

                          breathe. Speedy treatment is essential. The burn should be put

                          under cold running water or packed in ice for one minute.

                          Then, alternate applications of Tea Tree Oil and cold water for

                          ten more minutes. The oil may be poured from the bottle

                          directly over the burn. The oil can be applied liberally twice

                          daily for three to four days if necessary.

                            

                          Candida Albicans -Dilute one drop of Tea Tree Oil in an

                          eight ounce glass of water,juice or herb tea. Drink this mixture

                          once per day for one week. The next week use two drops of

                          Tea Tree Oil in the liquid. Each week thereafter increase the

                          amount by one drop until you reach a maximum of five drops

                          of Tea Tree Oil per day. Continue to take five drops of Tea

                          Tree Oil in eight ounces of liquid for two months. This should

                          be used in conjunction with dietary changes, Acidophilus

                          supplements, pau d'arco and other aids to overcoming

                          Candida. For children, use one drop in a quart of liquid.

                           

                          Cankers (Mouth Ulcers) - Apply the oil full strength directly

                          to the canker sore several times until sore heals. One or two

                          applications are reported to do the trick for most people.

                           

                          Cold Sores - Apply the oil full strength daily for a week.

                            

                          Cuts - Clean the wound and apply the Tea Tree Oil directly to

                          the cut two to three times the first day. You can continue to

                          apply the oil twice daily for up to seven days thereafter.

                           

                          Dandruff - Add Tea Tree to your shampoo for dandruff, dry

                          or oily scalp, and itchy scalp. Use 10 drops to an 8 ounce

                          bottle.

                            

                          Diaper Rash - Apply 2-3 drops of oil mixed in your palm with

                          a carrier oil (not baby oil - it contains mineral oil which causes

                          Vitamin A deficiencies).

                           

                          Disinfectant - Use 15 drops to quart of water in a spray

                          bottle. Use on countertops or for general cleaning. Tea Tree

                          Oil along with Sunshine Concentrate will give you all the

                          cleaning and laundry supplies you need in your home.

                           

                          Ear Aches - Rub two or three drops of the oil on the outer ear

                          or dilute three drops of the oil in one teaspoon of olive oil and

                          put a few drops of the diluted mixture in the ear twice daily.

                           

                          Fleas - Use 10 drops to 8 oz. of water and spray on animal's

                          coat as you rub it in. It will be good for their skin also. This

                          needs to be done daily until the problem is under control in the

                          home. After all fleas are gone you can put it in a spritzer bottle

                          and give your animal a spritz all over once or twice a day if

                          fleas are in the area.

                           

                          Fungus Nails - Andrew Weil, M.D. in "Natural Health,

                          Natural Medicine", says Tea Tree Oil will clear up fungal

                          infections of both toenails and fingernails even if they are

                          resistant to strong systemic antibiotics.

                           

                          Gums/Teeth - Add 2 drops to a little water and swish around

                          mouth --- or add a drop to your toothbrush and apply while

                          you brush. Does a great job for receding gums, pyorrhea,

                          gingivitis, plaque, and bad breath from dental sources.

                           

                          Infected/Sore Nails - Applied several times a day.

                           

                          Insect Bites and Stings - As soon as possible, apply the oil

                          full strength directly to the bite with a finger or cotton ball.

                           

                          Laundry Disinfectant: Add one teaspoon per load to disinfect

                          laundry such as diapers or to prevent transmission of fungal

                          infections.

                           

                          Lice - Mix five drops of Tea Tree Oil in a teaspoon of

                          shampoo and wash the hair. Repeat this treatment twice daily

                          until the lice are gone.

                           

                          Mites - Cats and dogs get ear mites. They are not

                          transmittable to humans, but infestations are very contagious

                          with pets in contact with other animals. We have used TEA

                          TREE OIL diluted. I use 10 drops in a tablespoon of olive oil

                          (you can use another kind). Then I take a small eyedropper

                          and squirt it in one ear at a time, instantly covering the opening

                          with the ear flap. I spend a full minute massaging the ear to

                          keep the animal from shaking it all out before it gets into the

                          ear canal and begins doing its work. Massage as long as you

                          can and rub the animal's head to make it a plesant experience

                          so you can repeat this twice a day for a week. Consistency

                          equals results.

                           

                          Pimples - Apply full strength with a cotton swab two to four

                          times each day for four days.

                           

                          Scalp Problems - Itchy, dry, scaly or oily scalps can be

                          helped with Tea Tree Oil. Use as shown above under

                          "Dandruff."

                           

                          Sinus & Bronchial Congestion - Rub a few drops of the oil

                          on the nose and sinuses and/or rub the oil on the chest. The

                          vapors may be inhaled by adding five drops of the oil to a

                          bowl of steaming hot water or to a vaporizor.

                           

                          Skin Problems - Use one teaspoon in a tub of bath water for

                          a very invigorating bath. It is reported to help sooth and

                          disinfect the skin in cases of psoriasis, eczema and so forth.

                           

                          Splinters - First, soak the afflicted area in hot water to soften

                          the skin. Then, apply Tea Tree Oil full strength. Remove the

                          splinter with a sterilized needle. Clean the cut, dry the area and

                          reapply the oil. For deep slivers, Black Ointment, pine tar or

                          lily of the valley herb applied to the area and covered with a

                          dressing will help to draw the sliver to the surface.

                           

                          Sunburn - Dilute one part Tea Tree Oil with ten parts of olive

                          oil or coconut oil and spread freely over the affected areas.

                          This is reported to be soothing and pain-relieving and to

                          reduce blistering and peeling. People have also applied tea tree

                          oil full strength to sunburn.

                           

                          Thrush in Infants (Mouth) - Dilute a few drops of tea tree

                          oil in the child's saliva to reduce the strong taste and paint onto

                          the afflicted areas with a swab. This can be repeated twice per

                          day for two days. Discontinue if there is no improvement.

                           

                          Ticks and Leeches - Apply Tea Tree Oil to the live tick or

                          leech and surrounding skin. Leave for 20 minutes. The tick

                          may fall off. If not, remove it carefully (make certain no part

                          of the tick is left in the skin). Continue applying the oil to the

                          bite three times per day for up to seven days.

                           

                          Vaginal Yeast Infections (Monilia) - Use one teaspoon of

                          the oil in a 500 ml. douche daily. You can also soak a tampon

                          in the oil and insert. It can also be taken internally. See the

                          directions for Candida Albicans.

 

                           

                          Tea Tree Oil is one of three oils that make up the "Pocket

                          First Aid Kit". Easy to use and you can carry in your purse or

                          pocket.

                          Use Tea Tree Oil by Cynthia Olsen is an excellent resource for

                          using Tea Tree Oil for a multitude of problems. A bottle of

                          Tea Tree Oil and this book will go a long way for helping the

                          health of your family and pets.

                                            Succcess Stories

 

                          ATHLETE'S FOOT

                          "My hubby, a natural skeptic about herbs, broke out with

                          athlete's foot a few weeks ago. He allowed me to put a few

                          drops of TEA TREE OIL on the problem. I massaged the oil

                          into the area and overnight the athlete's foot was gone!" A.K.

 

                          ECZEMA & RASH

                          "I suffer with eczema in the winter months, especially my right

                          thumb, which cracks open in one spot and never seems to heal

                          until the warm weather comes in. The past few days, I've also

                          developed a painful rash between my second and third fingers

                          of my right hand. After reading your comments on TEA TREE

                          OIL this morning, saying that it is good for wounds, I applied

                          some to the rash. An hour later, I noticed that my finger was

                          no longer bothering me. When I looked, I noticed that the rash

                          was completely gone. I then applied it to my hard-to-heal

                          thumb and, although the split is still there, it seems to have

                          closed up a bit. I've also used Golden Salve on that thumb

                          with great results. I love this stuff!" Joanne

 

                          HARD BUMP ON DOG

                          "I noticed a hard bump on the side of my dog, Tasha, and was

                          concerned. I decided to try a natural approach and began using

                          TEA TREE OIL four (4) times a day. I also added BLACK

                          OINTMENT beginning the next evening. I applied that four

                          (4) times a day also. I noticed it was shrinking in a couple of

                          days. ONE WEEK LATER, Tasha's bump is completely

                          gone...zappo...it is gone! No trace of it. Great news!" Margot

 

                          LICE

                          "It seemed the whole school had an infestation of lice and

                          somebody told me about using TEA TREE OIL. I was feeling

                          really horrible about putting all those chemicals on my

                          children's scalp, knowing they were being absorbed into their

                          bloodstreams, so I decided to give it a try. It worked so much

                          better than the drug store stuff. Tea Tree is used for so many

                          things that I feel like I have a first aid kit in a bottle." Mary T.

 

                            

                          NAIL FUNGUS

                          "I began putting TEA TREE OIL on my nails and the fungus

                          around my cuticles died over night." Kellie

 

                          PLANTER'S WART

                          "I had a planter's wart on the bottom of my left foot that just

                          would not go away. Instead of going to the dermatologist for

                          an acid treatment, my wife wanted to try something

                          "alternative." She put a drop of Nature's Sunshine Tea Tree

                          Oil on the wart and then followed it up with a dab of Nature's

                          Sunshine Black Ointment and then we put a waterproof

                          Band-Aid on it to keep all the "alternative medicine" on it. We

                          did it morning and night, and by the second night (after three

                          treatments), the wart was flat and there was a "divot" in the

                          middle where it looked as if the seed had drawn itself out."

                          Steve

 

                          TEA TREE OIL DOES IT ALL

                          "We took our kids camping this past weekend and of course I

                          had my handy little bottle of TEA TREE OIL (I love this stuff).

                          We were camping and when we were taking our tent down,

                          we found we had planted one of our spikes right into a sappy

                          pine root. My husband had sap all over his hand. Well, anyone

                          whoever gets that pine sap on themselves knows it's very hard

                          to get off. I threw the bottle of TEA TREE OIL to my husband

                          and said, "Try this it works on everything else!" Guess what?

                          He rubbed it into his hands, rinsed with water, and it was

                          gone! So, my advice is, "Don't leave home without it!" Pam in

                          Atlanta

 

                          TICKS & TEA TREE OIL

                          "I had read somewhere that Tea Tree Oil was helpful when

                          removing ticks. Stephanie, our youngest, has had three ticks so

                          far. All three times, I've put some Tea Tree Oil on the tick

                          and waited until the tick let go so I could flush it down the

                          toilet. It worked everytime! It takes about 30 seconds but I

                          like the fact that I don't have to worry about getting "all of it

                          out". It must be very toxic to them. I love it!" Giselle
