faster pussycat k-k-k-k-k-ill the c-c-candida.  Only in the healthy-lifestyle-foresaken western world do we even have an illness affecting 20-something women such this.  TCM may slap the diagnosis “damp heat in the lower burner” causing itching burning and pain in the urinary tract, vagina and extensive mood and skin problems.  Influencing its presence are chronic use of antibiotics for urinary tract infections causing a vicious cycle into yeast infections,  high sugar, alcohol and dairy  diet, dehydration, constipation and more than 5 years of oral contraceptive use.  Pave the  way for athlete’s foot, warts, tinea, endometriosis, fibroids, cysts, cystic acne, allergies, depression and infertility. Blah. This is the kind of cycle that makes women want to tear their bodies from their minds.

See Candida you nasty thing part 1 and Candida be gone ? (Part Deux) for a questionnaire, a diet and a three step approach to killing the suckers for good.

Bounce off itching rubber. A latex allergy is among the fastest growing food allergies which means the upper respiratory tract, urinary tract and skin could react to the following latex cross reactors: apples, avocadoes, almonds, bananas, cucumbers, peaches, pears, cherries, plums. If staying indoors, abstaining from housework and intimacy currently seem like the best possibilities then remove these foods from the diet for 2 weeks and slowly reintroduce.

you are what you eat.  in Chinese Medical philosophy life force known as essence comes to us in two forms: from our parents at conception and then again on a daily basis, from food.  So if you eat food with good essence you will have good essence.  if you eat food with good chemistry, you will have good chemistry.  if you eat living food you will have energy.  if you eat nutrient-rich health food, you will be nutrient rich.  eat what you wish to become rather than what’s convenient.

Tempt yourself with the sugars of a carmelized onion. Abstaining from added sugar, artificial sweeteners, juice, pop, candy, milk chocolate, pastries and sugary alcohols for 6 weeks will allow your taste buds to return to normal. They’ll re-adjust to enjoy the natural sugars in grains, vegetables and fruit while keeping the calories out of way so you not only taste sweeter you look sweeter too.

Take the heat.  When put on the hot seat, I will own up to what I’ve done wrong, learn from mistakes and incorporate them into my life’s lessons.  Then it will feel cool.

Go to Spain, if only in practice.  The siesta or an afternoon nap is beneficial if the mind can be trained to keep it to less than 30 minutes as it promotes wakefulness, enhances performance and learning ability.  If that same nap is habitually extended it may be associated, unfortunately, with death, especially among the elderly.  So keep those naps short, mi amigos.

Don’t dine on plastic wine (eg. Little Penguin). While reusing and reclycing plastic is necessary to reduce the landfill burden and perhaps one day the human race will have to incorporate plastic and harmful estrogens into genetic code to pass the newest survival-of-the-fittest tests. But until that day when future generations are born with a nutritional need for IV plastic as medicine, choose glass and stainless steel containers for food and drink as much as possible, since plastics tend to leach off bisphenols and xenoestrogens faster in acidic environments; wine, pop, club soda, beer juice, mineral water, spirits.

If symptoms; mysterious but worrisome, irksome but ‘all in your head’, random but physiological, psychological or emotional, are keeping you up, itching, in pain, bloated, moody, feeling toxic, sans bebe, stumping health-care providers and no answers with medicine then consider this statement “luckily for you, I happen to be a quack.”  [Richter cartoon caption].

Eat seeds for your little seeds.  Studies show that EPO, an important long chain fatty acid found in the oils of cold water fish, walnuts and certain seeds will help maintain reproductive integrity, spawning healthy gametes for both sexes and regulating menstrual cycles in the process. 1)From new moon (or first day of menses) to day before full moon (ovulation) = flaxseeds & pumpkin seeds 2)From full moon (ovulation) to day before new moon (menses) = sesame seeds & sunflower seeds.  The XX and XYs of the next generation will bounce for joy!
