About Candidasis

There are more than 20 species of Candida, the most common being Candida albicans. These fungi live on all surfaces of our bodies. Candida yeast grows naturally in the gut, however, when this yeast multiplies out of control it can unbalance your whole system, creating an acidic environment where yeast over-growth and bad bacteria can thrive. Over time this imbalance in the intestinal flora lowers the immune system, leaving the us open to sickness and disease…

Fibroids – Comforting Herbs and Supplements You May Want To Talk To Your Dr. About

 

 

Curcumin

EGCG – Green tea

Genistein

Serrapeptase

Nattokinase

MSM

A Description of What May Be Naturally Comforting Herbs And Supplements

CURCUMIN A recent study, showed the inhibitory effect of curcumin on leiomyoma cells proliferation. These experimental findings in vitro show that the inhibitory effect of curcumin on eiomyoma cell proliferation occurs through the activation of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-gamma. Curcumin may be useful as an alternative therapy for uterine leiomyoma. Inhibitory effect of curcumin on uterine leiomyoma cell proliferation. Center for Asian Traditional Medicine, Tohoku University Graduate School of Medicine, Sendai, Japan. Gynecol Endocrinol. 2010.

EGCG – Found in green tea effectively inhibits proliferation and induces apoptosis in rat uterine leiomyoma cells in vitro and in vivo. Am J Obstet Gynecol. 2010. Green tea extract inhibits proliferation of uterine leiomyoma cells in vitro and in nude mice. Center for Women’s Health Research, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Meharry Medical College, Nashville, TN, USA.

GENISTEIN – Experimental findings in vitro, show that the repressive effect of genistein on E(2)-induced leiomyoma cell proliferation is through the activation of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-gamma. Genistein may be useful as an alternative therapy for leiomyoma. Gynecol Endocrinol. 2009 Jun;25(6):403-9.Repressive effect of the phytoestrogen genistein on estradiol-induced uterine leiomyoma cell proliferation.Miyake A, Takeda T, Isobe A, Wakabayashi A, Nishimoto F, Morishige K, Sakata M, Kimura T.Center for Asian Traditional Medicine, Tohoku University Graduate School of Medicine, Aoba, Sendai, Japan.

SERRAPEPTASE One of the newest ways to deal with fibroids and tissue build-up may be Serrapeptase. Serrapeptase with when combined with MSM and Nattokinase has been shown to reduce fibroids and relieve cramps during menstrual cycles.  Its reported that grapefruit-sized fibroids been reduced  to approximate size of golf ball at 3-4 months.

Nattokinase – This proteolytic enzyme which comes from soy is used in Japan to dissolve fibroids. Experts speculate that it may be helpful in dissolving uterine fibroids.

 

MSM – Methyl sulfonyl menthane must be in its purest form to work. No anti-caking ingredients or additives can be present because they block the bioavailability of sulfur to the cells.  Be sure to buy the purest organic sulfur possible.

Other herbs and suppliments which have been taken to help with fibroids are:

Wild Yam- Hormone Balancer, Chaste Berry – slows growth , Cats Claw – reduces inflammation, Black Cohosh – Blances estrogen, Essiac Tea – detoxifier & slows growth,

Lose Up To A Pound A Day – The CHI Way By Just Eating An Alkaline Balanced Diet?

 

Believe it or not there is a good side to having a high percentage of body fat, as it plays a major role in extending lives because it provides the first line of defense from the acid wastes that go hand-in-hand with the Standard American Diet (SAD).

When we eat the SAD, we consume vast amounts of acid-based foods.  These acidic foods cause acidic waste, so our body’s first line of defense is to use the body’s optimal amount of fat cells to store the toxins. This defensive measure is helpful, although for most of us it’s no match for the amount of acidic foods we are accustomed to eating – so the body must make more fat cells so that the acidic waste will not be dumped in to our blood stream. 

Our health problems are compounded when our fat cells multiply beyond our body’s ability to handle them at natural healthy levels.  When  this happens we find ourselves not only dealing with unhealthy levels of fat cells, we find our bodies soon show signs of disease in the heart, lungs, liver, colon, kidneys, pancreas, gall bladder and other vital organs.

When I speak about high acidic foods which are part of the SAD, I’m primarily referring to all processed food along with dairy, meat, bread and any foods which are high in sugar. All of these foods are highly acidic and cause acid wastes to build up through out the body, including the fat cells.  

This brings me to why you can healthfully loose up to a pound a day stopping the toxic poisoning of your fat cells and balancing your pH!  

Here at Creative Health Institute, our students and guests are always amazed at the amount of fat that just seems to melt off their bodies on a daily basis. This quick weight loss is not water weight, as every participant is eating two and a half to three pounds of high alkaline raw living food per day, along with drinking a minimum of half their body weight in ounces of water.  The key to their success is the power of the alkaline foods and their ability to help the fat cells safely release their toxic acidic waste into the bloodstream, without adversely affecting the blood or bodies vital organs and systems.

There are a million-and-one weight loss programs and diets. It’s proven that 99% of the craze diets fail, not because the dieter is lazy or has no self-control, but because the weight loss program or diet is not based in eliminating acidic toxic waste and poisons from the first line of the body’s defenses, i.e., fat cells.

So, are you ready to experience the joy that is a natural expression of being able to free your fat cells of toxic acidic waste and poisons?  If so, then simply begin eating two and a half to three pounds of raw highly alkaline food per day, drink a minimum of half your body weight in ounces of water and combine this simple eating regiment with just a ½ hour exercise daily. So, now that you know how it’s done, what’s keeping you from having the healthy toxin free body that you deserve?

If you need more information or need help with losing weight naturally, or want to know more about how you can have more natural energy, gain lean muscle, sleep better, wake more refreshed and be much less likely to get sick,  feel free to contact us at 866.426.1213. Creative Health Institutes programs are alkaline and oxygen based full body detoxification and rebuild counseling and direct learning programs, designed to help you be the healthy, happy person you deserve to be.

Testimonials: June 2011

A Testimony From Velisa of Hobart, In.

Velisa has been at Creative Health Institute for seven days.  Before coming to Creative Health Institute, Velisa had been fighting breast cancer with traditional western medicine and she was not happy with the results. She will graduate with her 10-Day Detox Certificate on Sunday and she has experienced some amazing changes in the past few days.

” I would definitely recommend (CHI) to other people — the camaraderie, the love and the best part about it is they are not being paid to do what they do. They are sharing and loving toward the guests that come here and it is a life-altering experiencing, a life-changing experience. In society you think  people just don’t care anymore but when you come here, you find that there are still caring, loving and concerned people.”

“When I first came I had two lumps, one in my upper left chest and one in the sternum. By Day 3 the one in my upper left chest had gone down.  It had been about the size of a small egg, now – it is about the size of a quarter.

Velisa, who has had a double mastectomy and undergone two rounds of chemotherapy as well as 65 radiation treatments, was told by her doctor that the lumps were still spots of cancer. The doctor also told her that chemotherapy would no longer prolong her life.

The Raw Living Foods Lifestyle has given her a new hope — and a new energy for life.

“My body feels extremely good. Not only did the program transform my natural body. It was also a mental transformation. It reminds me of the bible where it says, ‘Be transformed by the renewing of your mind.’

“Bobby has taught me how to transform my eating habits to transform my body so my body can heal itself.”

A Testimony From Tim of Peoria, Il.

“My blood pressure went down more than 50 points and I lost nearly 13 pounds in four days… The techniques being introduced of ways to maintain your body and how to care for your body are very helpful… When I had a colonic she said some of that stuff that came out of me had been in there for 20 years. I feel so much lighter and so much healthier and it was an opportunity to meet so many healthier people… I have been given a new lease on life. I want to look forward not back.”

Another testimony from Russ, of Marshall, Mi:

“The day I walked into the Creative Health Institute… well, I actually was hobbling for all of my joints and muscles were so painful, it would bring me to tears if I moved just right. Suffering from high levels of metal toxicity made me very sick and grumpy and I knew in my heart something had to be done. I signed up for the five-day detox program and didn’t know what to expect but understood if I wanted real results, I would have to follow the Ann Wigmore program to the Tee. Let me not mislead anyone, the first three days were very difficult but the support I had from the staff and others who were taking the program offered a hope of a newly sprouting seed and kept my head in the game. On the fourth day when I woke in the morning, I actually sprang out of bed and started moving about the room getting ready for the day and then realized… holy cow! my feet, ankles, knees and hips were virtually pain free! My range of motion had also greatly increased. My heartburn had vanished. My brain seemed to be bright and fogless.  On top of all that good stuff I had lost almost twelve pounds in toxic body weight in five days! Thank you, Ann! Thank you all at Creative Health Institute, for this truly has been a life-changing and educational experience for me.”

A testimony from Julia of Marshall:

“I just completed the 5-day detox at Creative Health Institute and have never felt this vibrant and healthy since childhood. The time I spent at CHI was transforming in the most positive way.  It is a place that overflows with love, giving of self, gratitude, positive energy, health, healing and life. Every day I felt more vibrant, alive and radiant and already after the second day I was excited to get out of bed and feel the blessings of the day. The lethargy I felt from eating the foods I had been eating prior to coming to CHI was eliminated immediately and my energy remained high throughout the day. Minor skin irritations/rashes I had battled with for the last month disappeared within 24 hours from entering the doors at CHI. The staff was so unbelievably inspiring — not only through learning about their own healings but also with their unselfish love and positive support they gave to the guests and their own colleagues. Thank you, thank you, thank you CHI for existing, for giving, for teaching and for life. You will forever be a part of my life.”

Wishing everyone the best day ever,

Learning to Live the Robust Raw Life

 

Ann Hartenbach of Winneconne Wisconsin had a gentle epiphany on Thursday after breakfast.

It was the day something shifted inside Ann, who has lost 18 pounds since arriving at Creative Health Institute May 1. Following the 10-Day-Detox Program she participated in, Ann became an intern. And this week she’s been getting experience preparing food in our raw kitchen.

She had been through detox programs at CHI in the past and reaped emotional, spiritual and physical rewards from them.  The 10-Day Detox she went through this month was extremely beneficial, too. But the experience she has been gaining behind the scenes in the kitchen since her internship began is really what’s helping Ann take her raw living foods lifestyle to another level.

“The kitchen supervisors create confidence and show how easy the lifestyle can be,” Ann said. “I feel I can go home now and know  what to buy and how long to keep it.”

Ann’s new-found confidence in the kitchen helped her to look at a bowl of leftover oatmeal from breakfast and see a future batch of oatmeal cookies. Before long, Ann was mixing together ingredients from an oatmeal cookie recipe developed for Creative Health Institutes own Master Chef and creator of the Raw Chef Level 1 Certification Class, Bobby Morgan.

Her cookies were a huge hit and other interns were eating them right out of the dehydrator.

It was her first batch of raw cookies. Now that she realizes it’s just as simple to make raw cookies as it is to make baked cookies, Ann expects to be doing quite a bit of “un”baking.

Ann recommends the CHI internship program for budding raw foodists who want to learn more at an accelerated pace.

And for those who can’t commit three months for an internship, she still recommends  the 10-Day Detox program.

“The detox is more than just losing weight. It clears toxins leaving you with a clear head and lighter feeling, ” Ann said.

She is so grateful for all she is learning at Creative Health Institute — and for her new confidence to continue the lifestyle when she returns home.

“Good tasting healthy food is in abundance,” Ann said. “Healthy food does not have to be without flare, spice and richness.”

Dr. Joyce Oliveto Recounts Memories of Don and Dr. Ann, Expresses Enthusiasm for CHI’s Current Programs




Dr. Joyce Oliveto, who was the director of Creative Health Institute in 1986 and 1987, says whenever she returns to the center it feels like home.

The internationally renown teacher and healer visited the center during the winter and returns as a guest teacher in May when current director Bobby Morgan is out of the country.

Dr. Joyce, who has wonderful stories from her time spent with Dr. Ann Wigmore, said she was really amazed at the level our programs have been taken to under the direction of Morgan.

“To see the level of expertise is amazing,” Dr. Joyce said. “The classes are not only designed around the original program that Dr. Ann put together. They are even better.”

In addition to being impressed with the quality of classes now available for guests who participate in the CHI Detox Programs and gourmet raw chef classes, Dr. Joyce also said she is impressed with the skill level of the interns who devote months of time to make the programs work.

“Everyone has brought this to the highest level that a raw food center can be,” she said. “The healing that I see taking place here — the education, the motivation and the inspiration, is absolutely amazing.

Dr. Joyce said the feeling of community at CHI today is very close knit. In fact, she said, it is so close knit that she felt as if she was one-in-spirit with everyone at CHI during her five-day stay. She said she felt like that when she was the director. But she never expected to experience that level of community within a five-day stay.

“I believe at the very deepest levels of my heart that people need to know about this place,” she said.

Dr. Joyce came to the center in October 1980 after detoxing at the Hippocrates Institute in Boston with Dr. Ann Wigmore.  Her health transformed quickly but when she returned to her home in the Brighton area, she needed community. So Dr. Ann put her in touch with CHI Founder Don Haughey, whose memorial service is scheduled for 1 p.m. Saturday at Creative Health Institute.

She said when she walked in the door of CHI to meet Don she was desperate for support with the raw living foods lifestyle. Back then there was no other place in Michigan to turn to for support. She could hear carpenters working in the building when she opened the door. Don had purchased it when it was a tavern and when Dr. Joyce met him he was transforming it into a raw-living-foods retreat and education center.

“There were carpenters working on completing the additions to the saloon but from what I understand Don was teaching classes anyway,” Dr. Joyce said. “Back then it was Hippocrates Midwest.”

She loved meeting Don.

“He was a quiet presence. He just had so much knowledge. He could talk for hours no matter what the subject was.”

When Dr. Joyce became the director in 1986 Don was still running his business American Woodcraft and he would visit the center every day but just once a week for meetings.

“I think he walked quietly on the earth. He was a very gentle man — very firm. He knew what needed to be done. Everybody just loved him. They had an energy exchange program through which people would come and volunteer to work in order to get through the program.”

Dr. Joyce said the CHI community was very passionate in the late 1980s when she was director. They painted the buildings themselves and did everything they could with any bit of money they had extra. A few times families with children participated in the energy exchange.

“There was always building and remodeling going on between classes,” she said. “We all felt like free spirits but it was very busy. I remember when I needed to have a break, I would take some classical music out to the room that is now the sitting room. I would just go get my hands in the dirt and I would plant for twelve hours.”

In those days they used to swim nude across the street in front of the mill. There were bushes and trees for privacy and Don wasn’t yet living in the Mill. They had the famous CHI Sunday Buffet dinners and festivals with Dr. Ann Wigmore and Viktoras Kulvinskas.

Creative Health Institute was extremely special to Dr. Ann who visited in the summers.

“It really was the only center in the country that was following her path. Nobody else was. California had changed already,” Dr. Joyce said. “She always felt special when she was here.

When Dr. Joyce first became director of CHI, the center was in a lul. There were not enough guests to keep it going. So she called Dr. Ann to see if she would help her with a marketing effort. The two of them went on tour making appearances on local radio and television stations in Ohio, Indiana and Illinois.

They stayed in hotels with separate rooms and Dr. Ann always ate alone by herself in her room. After finishing her own dinner, Dr. Ann prepared a meal for Dr. Joyce.

“She would have a table cloth on the floor with a plate and energy soup, dehydrated dates and bananas,” Dr. Joyce said. “We laid on her bed and watched old movies. She loved old movies.”

The times with Dr. Ann were just wonderful, she said.

“She always smelled like strawberries. She used strawberry essential oil and beet juice on her cheeks for a natural blush.”

If they were doing a cable TV show, they would bring in a tray of wheatgrass and a tray of buckwheat. Someone at one of the studios once walked up to the greens and started petting them. “Wow, it smells like strawberries,” the person said, not knowing it was the smell of Dr. Ann’s essential oils.

Dr. Ann winked and said, “Yes, it does, doesn’t it?”

“She had a light-heartedness about her. She was a really sweet soul,” Dr. Joyce said. “But a lot of people didn’t realize that she was funny.”

The fact that Creative Health Institute is keeping the simple raw-living-food traditions of the great healer alive is wonderful because so many other centers have broken from Ann Wigmore’s teachings, Dr. Joyce said.

“One woman knew and believed that we could make a consciousness shift in the world through the living food lifestyle but she took her education, her life experiences with her grandmother, her personal experiences with almost having her foot removed, her health challenges – and started this dream in Boston with Hippocrates Health Institute.”

Dr. Joyce is glad to see the degree to which Dr. Ann is respected and honored at Creative Health Institute and she hopes the Creative Health Institute Community will always keep the memory and traditions of Dr. Ann alive.

“Dr. Ann has had over 50 years of people healing with raw and living foods and the simplicity of this healing program and what it dos for our bodies and our minds and our souls,” Dr. Joyce said. “Her work worked and why change it? Why not pay tribute and recognize somebody who made such a contribution to the world.”

The medical community in the United States has been slow to recognize the benefits of Dr. Ann’s teaching but Dr. Joyce said when she visited other countries she would be met my heads of state and they put her program in hospitals.

“Creative Health Institute has taken Dr. Ann Wigmore’s work – her passion, her vision, her dream,” Dr. Joyce said. “I feel it has been brought to the highest level it could ever be brought to today in 2011. I have never seen it better and I have never seen it this good… There is no ego here.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

CHI Graduates its first ADVANCED Raw Chef Level 1 Class

February went out like a lion at the Creative Health Institute with the completion of our first Advanced Raw Chef Level One class. The creative energy was off the chart. And the food these students made was just delicious.

It had been shaping into a long-cold winter in Michigan and we thought we needed to do something special to make our raw chef programs even more amazing than they’ve been in the past. Then an ice storm hit and we were without power, phones or Internet for three days.  We almost had to call off the Raw Chef 1 Weekend that was scheduled to begin February 25. But what doesn’t kill us, makes us stronger, right?!

So when our lights came on early Wednesday morning our program director had an epiphany of sorts: why not just turn it up a notch? After all, we have the talent in our kitchen right now. We could do it, he dreamed. And my goodness, we really did! Our raw chef level one students who arrived for the February 25 to 27 program received more hands on training than most raw chef students receive in a level two training program.

I think we can pretty safely say that out of a cold and icy February, something spectacular has been born. From now on we are calling our Raw Chef Level 1 Weekend Program our “Advanced” Raw Chef Level 1 program. Students will continue to get a high level of hands on experience and instruction — enjoying such amazing recipes as raw bacon and pancakes, raw brownies, raw sweet potato soup, raw corn chowder, amazing varieties of kale chips and dozens of other fantastic recipes created by Creative Health Institute staff and interns.

Here’s what some of our graduates had to say about the Advanced Raw Chef Level 1 experience:

“Excellent class. There is nothing like the intrinsic value this food brings to your life, health and well being.” ~ Mark

“There was a wonderful variety of foods that I learned to prepare. The class taught me how to create good and amazing live food. There were great tips on how to use the knives, seasonings and sprouts! I believe my favorite thing was all the hands on — actually tackling the recipes myself. Also, having the ability to ask questions directly to a Master Chef! I made good friends, found like-minded people as well as encouragement. You can’t get any better than that!”

~ Juliane

“There is a very inviting and family-like environment here at CHI, caring individuals who want to help us heal physically, mentally and spiritually. CHI is a community not an institute and they extend their love and knowledge to everyone… Even after this experience, I know that I have become a part of this family and I am ever so grateful and forever changed.” ~ Christine

Fenugreek Chocolate Strawberry Heart

This fast and delicious desert is healthy and fun to make. My assistant Patty Maher, came up with this great recipe last Valentines Day, and it was a smashing hit with everyone here at Creative Health Institute (CHI). I think it would make a fun party dish for New Years Eve. 

Fenugreek Chocolate Strawberry Heart

(It’s soooo simple  and pretty; you’ll want to kiss yourself!)

Although this tasty heart was inspired by St. Valentine’s Day, I hope you’ll feel free to enjoy it anytime you want to bring a little more love to your family or friends. xoxox ~ Patty

INGREDIENTS

2 cartons of organic strawberries

2 organic apples (granny smith might be especially nice but I didn’t have them)

2 cups raw organic cacao powder OR carob

1  1/2 cups sprouted fenugreek (We have been keeping sprouted fenugreek on and every day for the past few months, so it happens to have been handy to use.  Lucky for this dessert, the addition of fenugreek gave it a fresh, earthy taste. We’ve been keeping sprouted fenugreek on hand because it has antiviral properties and it’s great for balancing hormones and women’s health. I love it in salad’s too. So sprout some fenugreek. You’ll enjoy it. Otherwise, use whatever sprouts you happen to have handy).

1  cup raw agave (or if you prefer not to use agave, use a cup of date paste and be prepared to dilute with room temperature  purified water).

A bit of room temperature purified water to get it to the consistency you prefer.

DIRECTIONS

Wash and prepare the fruit. Take the stems off  the strawberries and slice the applies into wedges. Place the strawberries in the shape of a heart on a pretty serving plate. Fill in the inside of the heart with apple slices.

Put remaining ingredients in the blender and blend until smooth, adding  purified water until it is at a good consistency for drizzling and dipping. Drizzle chocolate over the fruit. Put remaining chocolate sauce in pretty serving bowls to set next to the large plate. Serve with a pretty bowl of toothpicks.

Enjoy!

Our Raw Chef classes have been especially wonderful! The next Raw Chef Level 1 Certification class is  January. 15th, 2012. Theres still a couple spaces available. For more information, contact us at 866-426-1213 or info@creativehealthinstitute.com.

Baby male trout raised in a tank grew up looking like females when small amounts of laundry detergent were added to the water. 42% of the male bass in the Potomac River are producing eggs. Patients tell me that the wrong kind of laundry detergent makes them bloat more. Bloating just before the period is typical of estrogen dominance and present with women with endometriosis and menstrual pain.

By John Foster, MD
We are living in the age of estrogen. The food supply is laden with traces of herbicides, pesticides and petrochemical residues from plastics, all of which have estrogen-like, endocrine disrupting effects in animals and humans. These xenobiotics, or foreign biological substances, have been linked to abnormalities and cancers of human tissues that are hormone sensitive, including fibrocystic breast disease, breast cancer, cervical cancer and dysplasia, endometrial cancer, endometriosis and ovarian disease as well as prostatic hypertrophy and cancer.
How can we protect ourselves from these influences? Eating a whole food diet of organic or biodynamic foods, free of pesticides, is an important first step. Healthy water is the next. Municipal water supplies may be sources of many chemicals and water in plastic bottles can contain residues of polycarbonate plastics called phthalates, which are endocrine disrupters. It is important to drink only pure mineral water or water that has been treated by a reverse osmosis (RO) system.
Our bodies regulate and eliminate estrogens by the action of detoxifying enzymes in the liver. There are two pathways of estrogen oxidation and conversion, one of which converts it to a beneficial and non-toxic form 2-OH estrogen and another which converts it to the 16-OH estrogen form. The 16-OH form is carcinogenic and causes diseases of tissues that are responsive to hormones, including disorders and cancers of breast, uterus, cervix and prostate, and probably lung and colon. Xenoestrogens push the system toward the 16-OH pathway both directly and indirectly.
Cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower, kohlrabi, bok choy, Brussels sprouts and cabbage contain a substance called indole-3-carbinol (I3C) which is activated and liberated when the vegetables are crushed in a wet environment, that is, when they are chewed, chopped or pounded. In the presence of stomach acid, I3C combines with itself to form DIM (di-indollyl methane). DIM induces certain P-450 enzymes in the liver to block the production of the toxic 16-OH estrogens and enhance the production of the beneficial 2-OH forms.
Studies have demonstrated that DIM reduces the incidence of fibrocystic breast disease, cervical dysplasia, endometriosis and prostate enlargement. In fact, the 2-OH form is not only benign but also enhances the process of apoptosis, the spontaneous death of damaged and cancerous cells. DIM also acts as an active surveillance for cancer cells. This is very exciting and while there is much to learn and more to say, I can state with assurance that this phyto-nutrient may be one of the most important protective substances of this new century.
It is very important to eat cruciferous vegetables every day for protection against diseases that may be induced by exposure to environmental estrogens. As raw cruciferous vegetables contain goitrogens, it is best to eat them fermented, because fermentation neutralizes these thyroid-depressing substances. (Cooking also neutralizes the goitrogens, but also deactivates I3C.) In fact, low rates of breast cancer in Polish women have been attributed to their daily consumption of sauerkraut. (Science News 9/23/00)
The amount of vegetables needed to supply adequate DIM for full protection or as part of a program of cancer treatment is at least two pounds daily. Of course, it is not always practical or possible to eat such large amounts of pickled vegetables. Fortunately, DIM is available as a supplement. I recommend it to almost any patient over 40 and anyone with a family history of breast or uterine problems as well as cancer of the lung, colon or prostate. I also add DIM to any hormone replacement therapy program for an added safety factor to prevent the above diseases. I have also used DIM successfully to treat PMS.

A Simple Yeast Overgrowth Test You Can Do At Home

 
Yeast Over Growth Test

“Some health care professionals believe that Up to 89% of Americans May Have Candida” – If you would like to have a good indication if you have an over abundance of yeast… 

Try this Fast Candida Saliva Test Our Students & Guest Do It Every Day!` 

When you awake in the morning, before you brush your teeth, drink anything or eat any food, bring your tongue to the roof of your mouth and make a chewing motion until you have enough saliva in your mouth, then spit the saliva into a clear 8 oz  glass of water. Within 5-15 minutes, look in the glass. If there are strings coming down from your saliva, or if the water turned cloudy, or if your saliva sank to the bottom, You May have a Candida concern.  Healthy saliva will simply float on the top! 

Why does this work? 

Candida overgrowth begins in the colon. Overtime, as the fungal yeast multiplies it begins to migrate through the digestive tract, moving up into the small intestine, then the stomach (bloating, indigestion), up the esophagus and into the mouth. If it becomes strongly entrenched there and many times you can see a white film on your tongue and inside your cheeks. Once it has moved up to the mouth and you spit into a glass of water the yeast will sink because it is heavier than water. If there is no yeast, it will float on top. 

Remember this test is not 100% accurate and may miss yeast that has not traveled into the up the digestive track and entrenched itself on the tongue or in the mouth.  At Creative Health Institute we use the test as an indicator making sure our students understand that it is both a science and an art, when it comes to reading the results of the saliva test.

Physicians have other testing modalites which help with identifying Candida Overgrowth (CO).  One of the most reliable is the Candida Immune Complexes test, followed by a combinatoin of IgA, IgG and IgM test.  These tests range from $100 to $250, excluding the cost of your office visit.

Checklist for Candida Albicans  

This test is reviewing the signs and symptoms to determine if you have Candida Albicans yeast infection Overgrowth. 

Candida Albicans yeast infection Overgrowth, Candida Overgrowth (CO) symptoms are so numerous and seemingly unrelated that they can be confusing to both doctor and patient. The majority of people who have CO do not realize they have it until they become seriously ill. Why? Because candida yeast not only steals nutrients from the food that you eat, it then poisons the tissues with waste material containing over 75 known toxins. Candida albicans is linked, directly or indirectly, to the following list of conditions and symptoms. A “symptom” is an outward sign that points to a deeper problem. 

Review the 80 likely symptoms listed below to see if any apply to you. Give yourself ONE POINT for each of those which you have had persistently (for a month or longer, either currently or at anytime in the past).

YOUR ADDED SCORE IS _____ (one point per symptom) 

0-4 points – Indicates variations of normal living (unless persistent and severe).
5-9 Points– Indicates a Clear Pattern shows likely development of CO dysbiosis.
10 or more – Indicates Strong Pattern and almost certain CO dysbiosis. 

The term dysbiosis was originally introduced in the early 1900s by Dr Eli Metchnikoff to describe an imbalance of the bacteria in the gut. Literally it means ‘dys’ incorrect and ‘biosis’ life. The word comes from ‘symbiosis’ meaning to reside together harmoniously with the ‘dys’ meaning the opposite. He coined the expression that “Death begins in the gut!”. Metchnikoff was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1908 for his work on friendly bacterial flora [1]. He introduced the idea that fermented milk products could prove beneficial to the gut, inhibiting bacterial infection. He believed that the root of many diseases was via intestinal bacteria decomposing protein in the bowel. Lactic acid producing bacteria were believed to stunt the production of the pathogenic bacteria. 

Evidence has suggested that Dysbiosis plays a part in many conditions such as: Over production of yeast, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Anklyosing Spondylitus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Chronic Fatigue, Eczema, food allergies. Many people are unaware that they are even suffering from Dysbiosis.  

Please call us if you need more information about our programs and how we deal with helping you to eliminate yeast overgrowth.
