Don’t be fooled! Yeast infections don’t just affect women. Candia albicans, the yeast-like microscopic organism to blame, can affect men and children too. It targets mucous membranes, and can be carried by the blood throughout the entire body. And antibiotics only make the problem worse. So let’s talk about how to cure yeast infections naturally.
Go to the doctor to get rid of nail fungus and you’ll most likely be prescribed an anti-fungal medication. But even the doctors will tell you that it’ll hurt your liver, so you’re better off just dealing with the unsightly problem. Many studies have shown essential oils to be true miracle workers of the natural medicine cabinet, and able to treat nail fungus with little extra damage.
Today, antibiotics are prescribed for all infections indiscriminately and as a result of this, there is increased microbial resistance, the evolution of super-bugs like the MRSA’s, the ESBL organisms, the resurgence of fatal viral infection and fungal diseases, and a population that is grossly immunologically compromised. So, we’d like to recommend some natural alternatives to antibiotics.
In cases of acne, we’re usually so desperate that we go get the prescription stuff because we want it to go away. But there are natural options you can try first that just might do the trick without you having to apply strong medicated products to your already stressed-out skin – and one of the best and most powerful of these natural options is tea tree oil.
Oil of Oregano, or Oregano oil, derived from the “wild oregano” or Origanum vulgaris plant, is one of the most potent natural antibiotics on the market. Its most well-known use is as a digestive: simple oregano flowers from your garden, when put into boiling water and brewed into an infusion, can settle an upset digestive system in no time at all.
The raw food revolution is gaining popularity, and I’m glad because we are learning to incorporate delicious raw meals into our diets that don’t leave us hungry for burgers and fries. We’re learning that raw doesn’t limit us to carrot sticks and spinach leaves, so more and more people are jumping on the raw wagon.
Some foods and herbs command the respect and honor of the title “super” because of their completeness and the amount of nutrition packed into each bite. And, other so-called supers, like milk, yogurt and turkey breast top off my Danger List. Yeah, some of these super foods are not only un-super, but they can potentially harm us.
Many of us no longer want to jump on the antibiotic bandwagon each time we get a sore throat or infection. These apprehensions are well-founded considering the more recent occurrences of Candida and fungal infections that are thought to be caused by antibiotics, and the fact that diseases seem to be getting smarter each day.
