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…. In addition, the presence of heavy metals in a person with Candida can mean that even when they are on a strict anti-candida diet the yeast may not be brought under control. After more thant 2 years of research, CHI’s Candida detox and rebuild program has been carefully designed to target the problem by seeking to eliminate the yeast overgrowth on a permanent basis. Sending everyone love peace and health, Bobby

If you know of anyone who is suffering from this disease or you would like to lean learn more about COPD, call Creative Health Institutes toll free number, 866.426.1213 and we will send a information packed brochure, which cover CHI’s COPD programs.

Causes of COPD
The primary causes of COPD is long term cigarette smoking, the more years you smoke and the more packs you smoke, the greater your risk. Symptoms of COPD usually appear about 10 years after you start smoking, but other irritants can cause COPD including second hand smoke, occupational dust, vapors, hazardous fumes, asbestos as well as air pollution have all been shown to be contributing factors. In very rare cases, COPD results from a genetic disorder that causes low levels of a protein called alpha-1-antitrypsin.

Early Warning Signs
Early warning signs of COPD are unique to each person and you may not even realize that you are having trouble breathing. Therefore we have put together some signs to watch for. If you find that you have any of these symptoms you may want to talk to your doctor since a change, combination or increase in the symptoms I have listed may be an early warning sign of COPD.

Are You Experiencing One Or More Of The Following:
1. An increase in the amount of sputum produced (Sputum: The mucus and other matter brought up from the lungs, bronchi, and trachea that one may cough up and spit out or swallow)
2. An increase in the thickness or stickiness of sputum
3. A change in sputum color to yellow or green or the presence of blood in the sputum
4. An increase in the severity of shortness of breath, cough and/or wheezing
5. Using more pillows or sleeping in a chair instead of a bed to avoid shortness of breath

9. Increasing morning headaches, dizzy spells, restlessness
10. Trouble sleeping

12. Increased feeling of fatigue and lack of energy that is persistent
13. A lack of sexual drive

Once COPD has been diagnosed, early treatment is most effective, timely assessment of your symptoms can help you and your healthcare provider decide the type of treatment that will most benefit you.

Many of our guests have chosen to augment their treatment of COPD with more holistic approaches designed to strengthening their immune systems. They feel that eating raw living foods diet, drinking wheatgrass and taking wheatgrass baths, enemas and implants, help to alleviate many of their COPD symptoms. Guests also use herbs and supplements. to enhance their ability to deal effectively with COPD. Some of the herbs and supplements our guests seem to find helpful are:

Herbs & Supplements
1. Comfrey leaves – help because they stimulate new cell growth and support quick healing. This makes it an excellent natural remedy for the lungs. It inhibits the cough reflex, softens and soothes damaged and inflamed bronchial mucus membranes. It helps to loosen mucus from the bronchial tubes so that it does not accumulate. You can buy comfrey leaf or root in various forms. Check with your Doctor before taking this herb.
2. Black tea – many COPD sufferers turn to tea for relief from tightening in the chest. Black tea contains chemicals related to the stimulant theophylline, which is also the basis of many modern medical remedies. Three or four cups of black tea can open airway passages and ease breathing.
3. Ginkgo – when used regularly the active ingredient has helped some patients to cut down on prescribed medication. Taken three times a day for a week or a month at a time. Ginkgo helps relax the lungs and keeps the breathing passage clear. Check with your Doctor before taking this herb.
4. Vitamin C and magnesium – improves lung function.
5. Pleurisy Root – possesses a specific action on the lungs, assisting expectoration, subduing inflammation and exerting a general mild tonic effect on the system, making it valuable in all chest complaints. It is of great use in pleurisy, mitigating the pain and relieving the difficulty of breathing, and is also recommended in pulmonary catarrh. The infusion may be prepared by taking 1 teaspoonful of the powder in a cupful of boiling water. The decoction is taken in doses of 2 to 3 fluid ounces. The dose of the fluid extract is 1/2 to 1 drachm; of Asclepin, 1 to 4 grains. A much-recommended herbal recipe is: Essence of composition powder, 1 OZ.; fluid extract of Pleurisy Root, 1 OZ. Mix and take a teaspoonful three or four times daily in warm water. Doctor before taking this herb.
6. Yerba Santa Holy Herb – medicines prepared with it or its extracts to treat bronchial and laryngeal problems. In addition, in combination with other herbs such as Grindelia robusta (good for Asthmatic bronchitis) yerba santa is also effective in curing insistent pulmonary infections, hay fever and asthma. There is no proven safe or effective dose for yerba santa in adults. Traditionally, 1-2 milliliters of fluid extract has been taken by mouth with a spoon every 3-4 hours for no more than ten days.

What Are Normal Blood Sugar Levels

Normal blood sugar level range between 80 and 120. A dangerous blood sugar level can mean it is too high or to low. Creative Health Institute does not treat or diagnosis diabetes. After you have been diagnosed diabetes type 2, we can teach you how to work on reversing it and bringing your blood sugar levels into the normal range, usually within 21 days.  Whether you have diabetes or not you should consult your doctor if you  are experiencing symptoms of abnormal blood sugar, or feel that its  not within the normal range.  So consult with your doctor, then you can make an informed decision as to where to go from there.

Some symptoms of abnormal blood sugar levels

  • The first symptom of diabetes is often excessive thirst (unrelated to exercise, hot weather, or short-term illness)
  • Excessive hunger (you know you’ve eaten “enough” but are still hungry all the time)
  • Frequent urination (often noticed because you must wake up repeatedly during the night)
  • Tiredness and fatigue (possibly severe enough to make you fall asleep unexpectedly after meals), one of the most common symptoms of diabetes.

While many of the signs and symptoms of diabetes can also be related to other causes, testing for diabetes is very easy, and the constant/regular presence of one or more of these symptoms over an extended period of time should be checked by a physician.

If diabetes is suspected, tested for, and diagnosed when those symptoms first start appearing, other more serious symptoms of advanced diabetes can often be prevented or have their onset significantly delayed through diet, exercise and proper blood sugar management.

However, often the ‘minor’ symptoms of diabetes go unrecognized, and physical and neurological problems may arise, resulting in some of the following symptoms:

  • Blurred vision(diabetes can lead to macular degeneration and eventual blindness)
  • Numbness and/or tingling in the hands and feet.  (symptoms of diabetes which causes nerve damage in the extremities)
  • Slow healing of minor scratches and wounds (diabetes often leads to impaired immune system function)
  • Recurrent or hard-to-treat yeast infections in women (another sign of impaired immune function)
  • Dry or itchy skin (peripheral neuropathy also affects circulation and proper sweat gland function)

If you or someone you know are experiencing these symptoms an appointment with a physician should be made as soon as possible.

Latest Study Shows Caffeine Has A Negative Affect On Blood Sugar Levels

Caffeine Raises Blood Sugar Levels In Type 2 Diabetics

It may come as quite a shock to those type 2 diabetics who regularly consume caffeine to hear that studies are now showing that caffeine raises blood sugar levels in type 2 diabetics.

I’m a regular diet coke drinker and I thought that because there is no sugar in diet coke it was safe for me to drink regularly…I was wrong.

The American Diabetes Association announced the findings of a Duke University study which showed that caffeine raised the blood glucose levels of type 2 diabetics throughout the day and especially after meals.

Previous studies on the link between caffeine and diabetes had shown that caffeine consumption lowered the risk of type 2 diabetes. Those who drank the most caffeine were the least likely to develop type 2 diabetes. It was these finding that has led many people to believe that caffeine had no ill effect on diabetics, in-fact it was helpful in lowering blood sugar.

What the Duke University study is now showing is that in people who have type 2 diabetes, caffeine raised their blood sugar levels throughout the day. So even if they drank caffeine in the morning it had an effect on their blood sugar level throughout the entire day making it difficult to keep it under control.

So what is suggested? Well, if you are a type 2 diabetic  and you are finding it difficult to keep your blood glucose levels in the normal range you may want to examine the amount of caffeine you are consuming.

Now that studies have shown caffeine raises blood sugar levels in type 2 diabetics  you may want to monitor the amount of caffeine that you consume, including soft drinks, tea, etc.  

 Think about how you can replace your caffeine jolt with healthy alternatives. Contact us here at Creative Health Institute and we will be glad to share some ideas which will help you balance your blood sugar levels and balance your life.

Wishing all of our friends the best day ever.

What Is Type 2 Diabetes

With Type 2 diabetes your body might be producing too little insulin, or it might not be reacting to the insulin correctly. Either way, the end result is that glucose builds up in the bloodstream instead of going into the cells. Left untreated, high blood sugar can cause serious long-term health problems.

Type 2 diabetes usually appears later in life, often between the ages of 35-45 years. As it often develops slowly, many people may not recognise the symptoms, and may have diabetes without knowing it.

If you have recently been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, you are one of the lucky ones. Many people have diabetes without knowing it, and are at much greater risk of long term medical complications.

Finding out you have diabetes can be upsetting, but it should not prevent you from living a long and happy life. You may need to make a few changes in your lifestyle, but these changes are also good advice for non-diabetics, so probably a good idea anyway.

Exotic Herbs Which May Help Contol And Help Reverse Diabetes…

We do not recommend ever utilizing herbs for medicinal purposes without discussing them with your doctor. Creative Health Institutes twenty-one day diabetes reversal program is based in our belief that a living body needs living food and when it is supplied a variety of living foods it will respond and heal itself.  We considered, it wise for you to refer to your family doctor before proceeding to enter into any treatments.

Bitter Gourd appears to have a very positive affect on keeping sugar spikes down and insulin levels stable. Many diabetics consume bitter gourd as a regularly as part of their diet. Bitter gourd is also been shown to have many other  health benefits.

Bitter gourd is a tropical vegetable, which is cultivated mainly in the Asian and African countries. It is also known by the name of ‘Karela’ and has a rough, warty skin. As the name suggests, the vegetable is bitter in taste and has a skin that is dark green in color.

Diabetics usually consume bitter gourd in the form of a powder or juice, but it is also used in traditional Asian dishes. The standard protocol is to consume bitter gourd first thing in the morning.  Many diabetics sprinkle bitter gourd on their first meal of the day. While others feel its better to consume it alone, or if in a powder form mix it with warm water and drink it.

Butea Leaves, is another amazing herb from India.  Though the tree has many other healing properties it isthe leaf when boiled, that releases  the phytochemicals which almost immediately reduce blood sugar. The picture that should have been here (sorry)  shows the flowering of the pods on the tree. Each pod has a seed that when dried and powered becomes a very powerful worm and parasite remover.  In Ayurveda medicine the leaf a also chewed.

 Cinnamonis such an amazing herb and of all the exotic herbs its most familiar to North Americana.  What is not generally known is that cinnamon is antiviral and  is  strong stimulator of insulin activity and is very beneficial in the treatment of diabetes and many other health challenges which require the reduction of viral pathogens and the regulation of blood sugar. It helps to keep the blood sugar in check and has been shown to be more powerful than turmeric, cloves or bay leaves.  Like most herbs the bark and twigs of the cinnamon tree has many other uses in helping our bodies to overcome health challenges.

Curry Leaves, is being shown to be a major player in the reversal of diabetes. Researchers from the department of pharmacy at King’s College London say they have found scientific justification for the use of alternative medicine.  Scientists believe that the Indian curry leaf  may contain phyto-chemicals which slow down the rate of starch-to-glucose breakdown in people with diabetes. The tree’s leaves could have the ability to control the amount of glucose entering the bloodstream. Chewing on ten fully grown leave every morning is believed to help with the lowering blood sugar and to help the pancreas to regulate insulin. chewing curry leaves is also said to help with weight loss. Its is estimated that 80% of the baby boomers are overweight and that many of them are suffering from the effects of type 2 diabetes. 

Fenugreek is easy to grow right in your kitchen and had the ability to control glucose metabolis and at the same time it  has a strong modulating effect on blood lipid levels which may substantially reduce the risk of atherosclerosis. Most diabetics, have lipid imbalances, Fenugreek has demonstrated to have the remarkable ability to lower cholesterol, triglycerides and LDL levels while raising HDL levels (good cholesterol) .

Fenugreek Seeds can be consumed in man different ways and forms. Some people eat the spouts and seeds raw before retiring while others put them in with juices and drinks. You can also purchase the powdered form. Another way to get the benefits of fenugreek is to soak the seeds in the water overnight and drink them along with the water the next morning. 

Indian Gooseberry a middle-sized tree and is indigenous to India. The berry can only be harvested about 3 months of the year. The berry is high in Vitamin C helps in controlling diabetes. The juice of the Indian Gooseberry can be added to bitter gourd and with a small amount of honey as a carrier, this combination is  thought to be an excellent way to diabetes since it provides nutrients for the pancreas, helping to release insulin.

Even though there is little to worry about when taking these natural herbs, they still might have interaction with whatever medication you are taking. It is better to be safe than sorry. This list of exotic herbs is not an exhaustive one and there are many more that are believed to have a great affect on diabetes.  I am planning on discussing them in the near future, any help or information from our readers as to what they have found would be greatly appreciated.

Love and Blessings,
