How to Get Rid of a Yeast Infection: Candiasis

  I travel internationally a lot and it isn’t always easy to find over-the-counter yeast infection treatments especially in third world countries. I used to bring along a couple of yeast infection treatments on longer trips, but they took up a lot of space in my bag and honestly, usually didn’t work. I’ve had my fair share of recurrent yeast infections that just won’t quit and I’ve learned to not put too much faith in prescription or over-the-counter medicines to solve the problem. We always have yeast in our bodies and in fact, it’s part of a delicate balance that’s not only necessary, but healthy. We don’t want to obliterate the yeast completely but we do want balance. So I’ve learned a few tricks when it comes to treating a yeast infection using stuff that’s available almost anywhere in the world and stuff that travels with me easily.  My favorite combo includes something called MMS and Dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO). These things won’t completely wipe out your intestinal flora or cause other weird side effects.   What is a yeast infection?   Many vaginal yeast infections are caused by an over-proliferation of yeast in the colon (candida albicans—not the yeast you’d use to make bread or beer). What happens in the colon spreads easily and directly to the vagina since the vagina and the rectum are located close to each other...

A Dental Tourism Experience in Tijuana

Our family hasn’t been to a dentist in over 5 years. Since we don’t eat refined sugars, this hasn’t been a problem, except for the fact that John and I have mercury amalgam fillings. Based on all my reading and research, the mercury fillings needed to go. They can actually cause additional dental problems as well as a variety of other horrible health issues like liver toxicity and Alzheimers, if left in our mouths for too long. I’d put it off long enough. It was time to bite the bullet and go get those fillings out.   Finding a Holistic Dentist in the United States:   I began my search for a biological dentist in Denver, CO, a city near where we live in Nebrask. I hate shopping for dentists because dental work is inherently awful and I feel like that awfulness really gums up my intuition about dentists. I decided that I’d start by just making some phone calls to talk to office staff and find out about the financial aspects of biological dentistry. How much does it cost? How long does it take? That sort of thing.   What I learned about biological dentists in Denver:   They’re too expensive. I mean, the quote that I got for my own mouth from the holistic dental office I contacted in Denver was between $5000 and $12,000 to replace...

Top 4 Holistic Cancer Treatment Centers in Tijuana, Mexico

If you’ve been diagnosed with cancer and you’ve read the book The Truth About Cancer (or simply heard about the incredible treatments available south of the border), you might be considering a trip to Tijuana, Mexico to partake in some of the truly amazing holistic cancer cure treatments that are available there. I recently traveled to Tijuana with my family to see the city and get some holistic dental care done at a facility that’s attached to a holistic cancer treatment center, American Holistic Care. If you’re looking for a cure and not just a band-aid for your cancer, the alternative cancer treatments offered at these facilities is worth exploring.   The patients I spoke with at American Holistic Care were hopeful and excited about their cancer journeys. They were open with each other and supportive…a far cry from the silent, fearful patients sitting in American clinics waiting for “treatments”. And American Holistic Care is located at the Grand Hotel, which can be reached by a daily shuttle bus that goes back and forth from San Diego to Tijuana. If you’re nervous about how to get from the U.S. to Tijuana and back, call American Holistic Care and talk to Javier or Marisia and have them arrange the shuttle bus journey for you to simplify the experience. Both Javier and Marisia speak excellent English. Consider booking a room at...

Hearing Aid Alternatives for People Who Don’t Want to Go Bankrupt Over Hearing Loss

Hearing loss is a big deal. As one of the five senses, second perhaps only to sight, hearing loss can lead to poorer health and hospitalization, cognitive decline and dementia, and a higher risk of falls in the elderly. For younger folks, hearing loss can make socialization and certain work-related activities more difficult. When my husband, John, lost most of his hearing in one ear due to an ear fungus infection and a subsequent eardrum perforation, I started thinking about hearing aids. For 8 months to a year after his eardrum repair surgery, John’s hearing remained less than perfect and he considered getting a hearing aid, but the cost was prohibitive. So I started researching hearing aid alternatives that were more affordable but that still offered good results. Below are some of the interesting options that I found:   Personal Sound Amplification Products (PSAP’s): Cheap Hearing Aid Alternatives for the Common Man   One of the first, and most compelling options that I found were Personal Sound Amplification Products or P.S.A.P.’s (also known by some as “hearables”). These are unregulated by the FDA (which could be a good thing considering some of harmful awful things that the FDA “regulates”) and you don’t need to visit an audiologist to get one. Manufacturers of these products, by law, cannot label PSAP’s as products that will help with hearing loss; most people...
