Natural Remedies For Over 200 Illnesses

Fungal Infection

Overview

Fungal infection is a disease that usually affects the skin, but can also affect other organs. It is caused by fungal organisms including molds, mildew, and yeast.

Symptoms of fungal infection range from mild to severe. Mild symptoms include discoloration and swelling of the nail and surrounding areas; moist, reddened patches over various parts of the body; and a cheesy and smelly discharge from the vagina. Severe symptoms can disrupt normal organ functioning and require immediate medical attention.

Fungal infections are more common and/or severe in people who use antibiotic medication for extended periods, or who use corticosteroids, immunosuppressant drugs (used to inhibit normal immune functioning), or contraceptives, as well as in people with conditions such as obesity, AIDS, and diabetes mellitus. People in the last category must seek proper medical treatment for their condition while simultaneously addressing the fungal infection itself.

As with all diseases this did not happen overnight. The very first thing you must do is see a licensed health professional. Find a list of practitioners in your local area here

Here are some things you can discuss with your practitioner:

Health protocols

Detoxification Therapy

  • Do the Hydrogen Peroxide Protocol to strengthen the immune system:
  • Drink 3oz of Colloidal Silver, three or four times a day for 60 days www.colloidsforlife.com/ Silver has long been recognised as a powerful natural antibiotic.  Colloidal silver is silver that has been removed electronically from its source and then suspended in water.   It is used to treat a myriad of diseases.

Hydrotherapy

Hydrotherapy is the application of water, ice, steam and hot and cold temperatures to maintain and restore health. Treatments include full body immersion, steam baths, saunas, sitz baths, colonic irrigation and the application of hot and/or cold compresses. Hydrotherapy is effective for treating a wide range of conditions and can easily be used in the home as part of a self-care program. Many Naturopathic Physicians, Physical Therapists and Day Spas use Hydrotherapy as part of treatment.

There are several at-home hydrotherapy treatments.  For treating rheumatoid arthritis, we recommended constitutional hydrotherapy (apply two to five times weekly) or a heating compress (apply once daily to affected areas). Please seek the advice of your alternative health care practitioner before undergoing these procedures to make sure they are appropriate for you.

  • We recommend regular colonics to remove toxicity from the body.  Read more about colonics by clicking here.  Find a practitioner here.
  • Most of the water that we drink is very acidic and in order to heal our bodies need a more alkaline state.  During the programme drink alkalised water, which you can buy from Real Water www.drinkrealwater.com/
  • Take a bath as often as possible up to once a day with two litres of 35% food grade Hydrogen Peroxide. http://shoppingcartpurehealthysystems.com/?Click=4464

Eat an organic, whole foods diet with emphasis on raw foods. Minimize your intake of dairy products, and avoid foods high in yeast, such as beer and breads, as well as sugar of all kinds (including honey and fruit juices).

It is important to not add further toxicity to your system so try to adhere to the following:

  • Do not consume any artificial sweeteners, such as Splenda, NutraSweet or Aspartame
  • Do not consume high fructose corn syrup or mono-sodium glutamate.
  • Do not drink any carbonated beverages.
  • Avoid all fast food restaurants.
  • Avoid all canned food.
  • Eliminate conventional dairy products.  The best dairy products are raw, unpasteurised and homogenised dairy from grass fed cows.  If this is unavailable, then buy organic dairy.
  • Avoid conventional beef.  The best beef is organic grass fed beef.

www.grasslandbeef.com/StoreFront.bok?affld=104400  The second best is organic meat; this includes beef, veal, lamb, chicken and turkey.

Supplements:

The following supplements can help prevent and reverse fungal infections: acidophilus, Bifidobacteria, and L. bulgaricus; garlic capsules; vitamin A; B complex; pantothenic acid; vitamin C; vitamin E ;and zinc.

Other useful supplements are essential fatty acids (black currant, evening primrose, and salmon oils), caprylic acid capsules, and grapefruit seed extract.

  • Take Vitamin D3 50,000-100,000 International Units a day for periods of 4 weeks at a time.
  • Wholefood supplements are the best way of ensuring your nutritional needs are met.  The best we know on the market is Kevin Trudeau’s “KT Daily” product.  You can find more details here kevintrudeaudailylifesessentials.com/
  • Take an Omega 3 supplement:

Krill oil

Fish oil

Yoga

The physical postures and breathing exercises comprising the practice of yoga have long been proven by scientific research to promote feelings of relaxation while simultaneously strengthening the body. Research conducted since the 1970s has shown that regular yoga practice not only relieves stress, and stressful emotions such as anxiety and depression, but also improves blood pressure rates and overall cardiovascular health. Yoga is also effective for reducing pain, improving gastrointestinal and respiratory function, and for improving cognitive function and enhancing sight and hearing.

Note: If you are just beginning to explore yoga, it is recommended that you initially do so under the guidance of a trained yoga instructor who can guide you to become aware of the subtleties involved in each yoga posture as well as the corresponding method of breathing.

Is a wonderful form of exercise, breath work and meditation to relieve stress and tension in the body.  See article section for more information about the art of qigong.

Topical Treatment

To the affected area, apply some of the following: tea tree oil or gel, citrus seed extract, honey and crushed garlic, pau d`arco tea by wetting tea bag for ten minutes and then leave the bag itself on the area or use gauze or cotton soaked in tea if area is too large.

Coconut oil can also replace other foot or body lotions on an on-going basis for anti-fungal protection and simply to reduce the number of chemicals applied to your skin.
