Temazcal, Heat, and Humidity Help Pudendal Neuralgia

  No one likes to talk about their private parts, especially when things aren’t going well. But sometimes, let’s face it, things go wrong down there. Recently, my husband had a strange nerve sensation at the tip of his penis that would radiate down his leg into the base of his foot. Needless to say, this problem, which he self-diagnosed as pudendal neuralgia, was distressing. Nothing seemed to help and after several months of this strange sensory anomaly, he’d decided that it was something he’d just have to learn to live with.   Last year, I went to a...

Hormonal Imbalance in Women: Birth Control Pills vs. Herbal Remedies

If you go to the doctor because you’re a woman and you’re having hormone issues or menstrual problems, chances are your doctor will prescribe birth control pills if you aren’t already taking them. But before you jump on that bandwagon, there are some natural remedies that are much kinder to your body and that can lead to some spectacular results healthwise. Most notable among these is IODINE but also vitamin B17. If you have menstural problems, fertility issues, or any kind of hormonal imbalance, you need to be supplementing with high-dose iodine (see below for more information). Most women these days take the pill or use some form of birth control product that uses synthetic hormones which is unfortunate. For sexually active women, unless you have perfectly timed periods, with perfect “flow”, and you’re using a diaphragm or condoms, it can be hard to escape from synthetic hormones. But synthetic hormones put women at risk for developing cancer as well as other health problems. If you’d rather avoid birth control pills this is an important article for you.   If you struggle with vaginal yeast infections or systemic candida albicans, this infection is related to hormonal imbalances and I would suggest reading the article How to Cure Candida before making any attempts to modify your hormones using herbs. After you cure candida, you may not have any hormonal imbalances anymore and...

How to Get Rid of a Yeast Infection: Candiasis

UPDATE TO THE ORIGINAL ARTICLE: When I first wrote this article, a vaginal yeast infection was (to me) an infection that could be treated as an isolated thing that was happening in an isolated part of the body. Indeed, a vaginal yeast infection can be very distracting, painful, and uncomfortable and it begs to be treated with something that will quell the itching. But after years of study, I’ve learned that a vaginal yeast infection is a holistic, systemic infection that should be treated with holistic methods. So, after years of research and learning, I have to say that the treatments offered in this article are not, in my opinion, “cures” for a vaginal yeast infection, but rather “cover ups” that can get you through the worst stages of the problem until you can work to cure it holistically using some simple, but life-changing techniques to cure candida (both vaginal candida infections as well as systemic candida infections) that are detailed in another article. If you have recurrent vaginal yeast infections, please read the article How to Cure Candida. Candida CAN be cured and while I mention prescription medications in this article, as a general rule, I seek to avoid them because most are merely a cover-up for deeper issues that can be treated with better nutrition, supplements, and enzyme therapies or vibrational medicine. ********************************************************************************************* I travel internationally a...

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...
