Candida/Vaginal Yeast Infections Natural Remedies

A vaginal yeast infection means that too many yeast cells, usually called Candida albicans, are growing in the vaginal area. When healthy, the vaginal bacteria keep the yeast in check. Candida in women is usually indicated by any kind of vaginal discharge, itching, burning, or possible dryness. There may be irritability, bloating, anxiety and nervousness.

The causes of Candida can be diet from dairy, coffee, alcohol, sodas and refined sugars. It may also be caused from hormonal imbalances, sometimes caused by chemical birth control.

Modern medicine treats Candida with other less harmful fungus medicines (one fungus treats another!!!). There is a little control, and only long-term treatments continue to help.

Natural solutions will help regulate the pH levels with the following treatments. Also get your hormones in balance, and regulate your diet, eliminating dairy, coffee, alcohol, sodas and refined sugars.

Short term control includes using 1,000 micrograms of Biotin (a B vitamin that controls sugar and carbohydrate metabolism) two to three times a day. Use this daily for at least 2 weeks. If this is not sufficient, add the trace mineral Molybdonem 150 micrograms twice a day.

Anger Management Natural Remedies

Anger is the state of mind that reflects an emotional sensitivity. It is caused from emotional sensitivity or weakness or damage to the liver. This can happen from foods and poor dietary habits, pollution and most commonly from almost all medications.

Common over the counter pain relievers are the most frequent offenders. Physical symptoms can also involve digestive problems, high blood pressure and can come from stress.

The medical field may treat anger issues with counseling and various medications such as anti-depressants and other drugs that may have a temporary effect but rarely treats the cause.

The natural perspective is that anger is an emotional imbalance that when properly helped by feeding the liver and heart, a person can find joy and balance in life.

For anger issues in woman due to hormonal imbalance, see PMS Natural Remedies.

Dietary concerns are spicy and sour foods feed anger as well as stimulants and dietary imbalances. Eliminate liver stressors such as tobacco, alcohol, coffee, black tea, caffeine, and sodas.

Bursitis Natural Remedies

Bursitis Natural Remedies

The bursae are pockets of thick fluid sacks that lubricate and protect the tendons and joints. They are damaged from injury or over use. This causes pain and inflammation (bursitis) and there may also be stiffness, tenderness and burning, all worse from motion.

Most medical treatment for bursitis includes NSAIDS (Non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) with all their side effects, toxicity, and slowing of the healing process. If these don’t work, then they may use injections that may only help symptoms.

From the natural perspective we help bursitis by changing a person’s lifestyle if it is from over use, and to help reduce inflammation in the body so the body can repair itself.

Diet – reduce the toxic load to the body so it has the strength to repair. Eliminate alcohol, tobacco, coffee, black tea, fast foods and dairy.

Supplements for bursitis symptoms include fish oil at 6,000 mg a day to reduce inflammation and help cardiovascular health. Bromelain at 2500 GDU 1 tablet or capsule three times a day between meals as a pain and inflammation reducer; MSM at 6,000 mg a day to assist the body in repair.

Herbs for Bursitis

Herbs are plants valued for their specific strengthening/ tonifying properties.

Externally for bursitis use a castor oil pack. Using a cloth soaked in castor oil, cover the inflamed joints or other affected areas and apply a hot pack over it. Do this twice a day for an hour. It may take several days to weeks but relief can be immediate and very effective. Internally the strategy is to use anti-inflammatory, circulatory and pain relieving herbs for bursitis. Use one capsule of each two or three (best) times a day.

Boswellia has been used as a concentrated extract for pain an inflammation.

Turmeric as the raw herb is full of nutrition, and has been used for liver health and anti-inflammatory processes.

Baby Congestion Natural Remedies

Nasal congestion in babies interferes with sleeping and feeding, when nasal pathways are blocked. Congestion comes when a nursing mother may have a diet too rich in dairy products or there is too much stress from lack of sleep which affects the quality of mother’s milk. The baby may have allergies to the formula.

For baby congestion, most healthcare professionals recommend sucking out the mucus from the nose or using a decongestant if the child is old enough. From the natural perspective, we should look first at the mother’s diet, and help the mother and child to normalize mucus secretions to reduce congestion. Clearing the nose is helpful.

A humidifier with a few drops eucalyptus oil in the water may be helpful at night. It is good symptomatic relief.

Nursing mothers need to pay attention to their diet; also avoid tobacco, alcohol, caffeine, coffee, and soda.

If baby is on formula, you may need to change it.

 

Herbs for Baby Congestion

Herbs are plants valued for their specific strengthening/ tonifying properties.

Use a glycerin extract as it contains no alcohol and are safer.

Elecampane – use with mother and a drop or two for the baby a few times a day. It is one of the best nasal decongestants I have used.

Osha – respiratory issues and be used if elecampane isn’t effective

Echinacea – useful especially for mom and will be helpful to the child through the mother’s milk.

Ginger – warming, improves digestion and congestion. Use like elecampane.

Natural Remedies for Anorexia

In anorexia, it is mostly women who starve themselves for a variety of reasons. It affects up to 2% of the American population. Anorexia often starts at puberty but may begin at any time. It is a modern disorder and can be life threatening.

Signs of anorexia

  • Abnormal weight loss
  • Obsession about food
  • Wears baggy clothes
  • Menstrual disorders or loss
  • Fatigue
  • Mood swings hair loss
  • Feels cold
  • Avoids social situations
  • Drug-alcohol problems
  • Obsessive exercising
  • Thyroid problems
  • Serotonin disorders
  • Can’t look in a  mirror
  • Skin problems
  • Heart palpitations
  • Constipation
  • Low blood pressure
  • Depression

Causes of anorexia are not always know but could stem from poor self esteem, unrealistic body expectation from self or family. They may feel depressed, worthless, suicidal, or have guilt with religious delusions. Anorexia may be a poor defensive mechanism to control their own life. There might be a poor mother-daughter relationship. Anorexia can also be used as a coping mechanism for deeper psychological problems.

From the medical view of anorexia, a person may need hospital stays when symptoms become life threatening. The person then needs an evaluation. Psychotherapy is almost always required. Anti-depressant medication (which may cause other problems) could be recommended. Typically, 30% of all anorexia patients do not recover.

From the natural perspective anorexia is a serious psychological problem which brings potent physical problems that can become life threatening. A person with anorexia NEEDS a COUNSELOR along with nutritional, herbal, and homeopathic medicines. The results can be quite good with using several natural supplements together. Initial help for anorexia may need to correct constipation, menstrual or digestive disorders. Diet must be addressed.

As for lifestyle, get counseling to help you to recover a healthy diet and a reason to enjoy life.

Diet is extremely important as many anorexics consume less than 500 calories a day. Someone who is active needs around 100 grams of protein per day. Even if the calories are low the protein needs to stay high to avoid muscle loss. The rule is to have protein at each meal.

Do the obvious of avoiding alcohol, tobacco, coffee, sodas, black tea and refined sugar.

Natural supplements for anorexia include using a good liquid multi-vitamin every day. Use digestive enzymes at meals as well as a good probiotic. Take 50 mg of Zinc as a most important supplement. You can have protein shakes at various times of the day.

 

Herbs for Anorexia

Herbs are plants valued for their specific strengthening/ tonifying properties.

Herbs can be quite helpful in anorexia to stimulate appetite, calm nerves and build the blood. Use a combination of the following herbs for anorexia in capsule or liquid tincture (glycerin) for maximum benefit, and adjust as your condition improves. Therapeutic dose is equal to one capsule of each herb or 15 drops of an herbal tincture 3 times a day. Choose 3 of the herbs below:

St. John’s wort as an herb for anorexia helps calm the nerves and alleviate depression. (Do not if they are on antidepressants prescribed.)

Wild yam can help calm the nervous system and improve digestive function.

Eleutherococcus herb for anorexia helps to improve endocrine function, reduce stress, increase energy and improve adrenal function.

Dandelion root herb strengthens the liver and is rich in inulin which feeds the friendly bacteria in the digestive tract.
