Candida – a new weapon in the war

If you’re one of those people who’s suffering from a raft of unsolvable ailments, from hearing loss to psoriasis, zits and rashes right up to cancer and M.S., then I have just the book for you. A book that’s like nothing else around, I promise.

Early last year, I dashed off a little post here about my run-in with Candida albicans – manifesting as deafness, tinnitus, acne, dizzy spells, mysterious rashes, circulation issues etc. – and how I’d attempted to tackle it. It wasn’t meant to be much, just a speculative discussion about causes and possible remedies. A confessional almost.

Since then I have kept on experimenting and looking for ways – physical, mental, emotional – to overcome this pernicious little horror inside of me. There are so many questions people ask about Candida, and I asked the same questions too, when I was tackling it. Years I spent searching for the answers. In the end, I thought it made sense to explain what I’d found out, as well as the Humaworm cleanse I went through to reduce me Candida overgrowth, and make it accessible to other sufferers. The result is now a short but amazing new book.

Taming the Beast Within Final CoverIt’s called Taming the Beast Within: A New Weapon in the War on Candida. You can get it on Amazon HERE. It’s of course on iTunes as well.  

The ebook is crammed with information, lay-person to lay-person.

  • How to test for Candida
  • What Candida looks like
  • How to respond appropriately to a Candida overgrowth
  • Why treatment by doctors often makes it worse
  • What a 30-day anti-fungal Cleanse feels like (with photos)
  • What the cause of Candida might be. Not the trigger, the cause. How come you have candida problems and not the next person?
  • How yeast infections may be behind M.S., deafness, tinnitus, cancer, acne, Crohn’s, etc.
  • A whole new path about healing Candida, and bringing the body back to harmony. Something you won’t find in any other book.

Taming the Beast Within is an informative and engaging personal journey into the dark and potentially dangerous world of Candida.

Its very first unsolicited Amazon reviews have given it 5 stars. ‘This book is a must read for all humans. The information….is worth every penny.’

Another review says: ‘A great book that has shown me a whole new way forward. Highly recommended to anyone who suffers from Candida, has health problems of any kind or who simply wants to learn more about a healthy life style.’

I’ve put my heart and soul and more into this book, in the hope that it will help other lay people who, like me, have been mysteriously afflicted with unaccountable symptoms for years but never realized why, to come to terms with what they’re dealing with and to fight back. At the very least, it’s an interesting, absorbing, and maybe slightly unsettling read.

Why food companies are out to kill you. And how they’re succeeding.

A couple of years ago, comedian Bill Maher explained to his audience why there was such a high incidence of disease, including cancer, in modern society. He blamed only one thing. “It’s in the food, people!” he said, and he’s bang on.

I dealt with this myself in an early post that’s proved to be one of the most popular on here:  Why Doctors Will Never Find a Cure for Cancer.

And the evidence keeps on coming.

51AZ77UjcqLFirst there was the excellent Fast Food Nation, a book that shocked me 90% of the way towards being a vegetarian. Some sections were so brutal that I found myself turning away, or hurriedly flicking through the pages to get past them. I’ve cut down my meat consumption to almost zero since then. Then there’s the movie Our Daily Bread about the disturbing, inhuman development of slick factory farming.

And now comes Food Inc. Another movie about what happens to food up to the point where you put put it in your mouth. Below is the trailer. Then, below that, is an excerpt from a blog by health expert Janice Taylor on today’s Huffington Post.

This a truly fascinating and frightening subject. Those sci-fi movies about grim, sprawling corporations taking over the world and being the enemy of the people – well, they all came true. The future’s arrived. We’re being poisoned every day, and most of us are just too lazy, bewildered, or trusting – or all three – so we don’t do anything to protect ourselves. Hopefully, Food Inc will help change that.

Here’s Janice’s blog.

Filmmaker Robert Kenner “lifts the veil” on our nation’s food industry. Our food supply is now controlled by a handful of for-big-profit corporations who seem to be far more concerned about making money than our health, the livelihood of the American farmer, the safety of their workers or our environment.

This film contains more than horrifying scenes of overcrowded slaughterhouses, where animals are forced to graze in pools of their own manure. This movie, for me, is about our most basic rights. We are being just as manipulated by the largest corporations as the food we are being sold. Wake up!

The manipulation of foods and the feeding of livestock have manifested bigger-breasted chickens. 50 years ago it took 70 days to raise a chicken to slaughter. Today it takes 48. It’s unnatural.

The country’s top four meatpackers control 80 percent of the beef market. One single fast-food burger might have come from 400 different cows.

The gut of a cow fed on corn breeds the deadliest strains of E. coli, a harmful bacteria that makes an estimated 73,000 Americans sick annually; including the tragic death of Barbara Kowalcyk’s young son Kevin, who died from e coli earlier this decade from an outwardly harmless fast food burger.

Farmers are subsidized to overproduce corn, which then goes into Coke, Sweet & Low, diapers, Motrin and cattle feed.

Obesity is at epidemic proportions, and diabetes is on the rise among children and adults alike.

You will be shocked to learn about what you eat, how it is produced and who we, as a nation, have become.

Our freedoms are being taken away from us. Open your eyes.

10 things YOU CAN do! (source: foodincmovie.com)

1 . Stop drinking sodas and other sweetened beverages. You can lose 25 lbs in a year by replacing one 20 oz soda a day with a no calorie beverage (preferably water).

2. Eat at home instead of eating out. Children consume almost twice (1.8 times) as many calories when eating food prepared outside the home.

3. Support the passage of laws requiring chain restaurants to post calorie information on menus and menu boards. Half of the leading chain restaurants provide no nutritional information to their customers.

4. Tell schools to stop selling sodas, junk food, and sports drinks. Over the last two decades, rates of obesity have tripled in children and adolescents aged 6 to 19 years.

5. Meatless Mondays–Go without meat one day a week. An estimated 70% of all antibiotics used in the United States are given to farm animals.

6. Buy organic or sustainable food with little or no pesticides. According to the EPA, over 1 billion pounds of pesticides are used each year in the U.S.

7. Protect family farms; visit your local farmer’s market. Farmer’s markets allow farmers to keep 80 to 90 cents of each dollar spent by the consumer.

8. Make a point to know where your food comes from–READ LABELS. The average meal travels 1500 miles from the farm to your dinner plate.

9. Tell Congress that food safety is important to you. Each year, contaminated food causes millions of illnesses and thousands of deaths in the U.S.

10. Demand job protections for farm workers and food processors, ensuring fair wages and other protections. Poverty among farm workers is more than twice that of all wage and salary employees.

Spread the word … NOT the icing,

I don’t think Janice’s slogan “Spread the word, not the icing” will catch on, principally because it’s nonsense, but she’s right to advocate seeing this film.

Of course, in a toss-up between Transformers 2 and Food Inc., most people will go see the one about giant robots. And that’s why they’re getting sick and dying. Added to which, Transformers 2 will kill their brains too. 

TV Swami – he say YES to Food Inc.

No more hookers for my dentist. Not on my dime.

I went to bed last night feeling awfully guilty. I’d been watching Brian Williams’ splendid documentary about how Obama and his staff run the White House, and Obamasuddenly realized something important, not to say devastating.  That successful people, the movers and shakers, the elite power-brokers in this world, don’t sleep in late, watch a lot of TV, and take long naps, the way I would do if I’d just been elected President – they actually work.

Hard.

All day.  

Without bunking off to go buy deoderant at the store or download movies from iTunes or to Skype friends and chat. It was quite an eye-opener and a whole new world. When did people at the top become so industrious all of a sudden?

Anyway, today, as a result, I woke at 5.15 and, instead of doing what I usually do at that time – roll over and go back to sleep ’til 8.30 – I sprang out of bed and got going. (Now, of course, it’s 7.50 and I’m worn out. But I’m thinking to myself, “What would Obama do?” He’d stay awake and write his blog. So that’s what I’m doing.)

Also, one of my friends in England emailed me with a problem. She’s got toothache. Bad, multiple kind of toothache, all down one side of her mouth. Everything hurts. And even though she’s paying her dentist a fortune, he can’t seem to pinpoint the problem. 

Dentoskeptics might say, “But of course he can’t.”

As anyone who knows me will tell you, I don’t trust dentists any more than I  trust doctors.  We place way too much faith in their opinions and so-called expertise, in my view. And because we do, they exploit our goodwill and gullibility and  pressure us into using their services. 

My dentist, for example, spends a disproportionate part of his income on hookers in Vegas.  I know this for a fact. And Vegas hookers don’t come cheap. I know that for a fact too – don’t ask me how. But to afford that kind of quality lay, my dentist needs to work almost as hard as Obama does. Which means he needs to find lots of mouth problems to fix.

Four years ago, I broke one of my teeth. On the left side here at the bottom. (I’m pointing.) The thing snapped in half while I was eating almond ice cream. It was very alarming, and left a huge black hole. Naturally, my dentist looked at it and pulled a face. “That’s terrible,” he said. “It’s going to take a lot of work to put that right.”

A lot of work, eh? Hm.

This would consist of several stages over a period of a year: extract the tooth; sew up the gum; repair the jaw with a bone graft; insert a titanium bolt; and prepare and fit an implant.

Total cost: $5,000. At 2005 prices! That’s…hang on, let me calculate…. my lord, that’s about 4.8 blow-jobs I’d be paying for right there. 

Well, truth is, I was busy. So as a short-term measure, I told him to glue the broken half of the tooth back on for the time being, while I remortgaged my house. “You have three months,” he said, “before this gets serious and has to be treated, otherwise your jaw could snap.”

My jaw could snap????  

At first I panicked. Then I came to my senses. Maybe he’s wrong, I thought. He’s only a dentist, after all. Maybe there are other ways to deal with the problem. Holistic ways he’s not telling me about, because they’re cheap and he’d make no money from them.

So, with the help of a friend I set about researching this, looking for alternative treatments. And we were surprised. We discovered a whole bunch of stuff that we’d never heard of before, stuff I’ll share with you here. Maybe some of it will resonate and you’ll start exploring this for yourself. 

  • Stress factors. The nerves in your teeth are directly connected to the various organs of your body. (“Your knee-bone’s connected to your thigh-bone…” – remember? Most dentists and doctors have to learn the lyrics of that song before they’re allowed to practice.) Everything in the body’s interrelated. So if you’re having gum or tooth problems, then it might be because of stress, worry, or other internal issues elsewhere that you need to fix before you start playing with your teeth;
  • Killing bacteria. Decay and gum disease are caused by bacteria. So if you kill the bacteria, you kinda stop the decay dead in its tracks, right, and save the tooth? That makes sense to me. And…
  • …what kills bacteria? Oh, all manner of things: ordinary baking soda, coconut oil, grapefruit seed extract, vitamin E in castor oil (from a bottle, rubbed on at night); and a little spray called colloidal silver (microscopically tiny particles that penetrate the pores and act like a nuclear blast to germs). It was worth a try anyway. So I started using all these methods in rotation.
  • Proper cleaning. First off, I bought a Water PicWaterpicBefore I went to bed, I  filled the reservoir with warm water and, on alternate nights, put in ten drop of grapefruit seed extract or a tablespoon of baking soda, then flushed out my gums, aiming the jet around the broken tooth especially, so that the healing water could penetrate the pores.   
  • Change toothpastes. I discovered that ordinary commercial toothpaste contains glycerin. What glycerin does is form a strong coating around the teeth to protect them. So strong is it, that it takes around 22 brushings to scrub it off again. Which sounds good, but apparently germs getVicco trapped inside the coating, and these germs can cause tooth decay. Forgive me, but isn’t that the opposite of what you want? Suspecting a conspiracy within the dental industry to get more patients, I switched to Ayurvedic toothpaste, which is natural and doesn’t contain glycerin.  
  • Deal with emotional issues. Turns out that the tooth that snapped is directly related to the liver, and the liver is where your body stores residual anger. Seems that if you’re deeply angry about something, then the overflow could cause pain in the teeth and lead to root canals and decay. So I also started meditating and working on that.
  • Swishing. Then there was oil-pulling, or swishing. See my post the other day. That kept my teeth ultra-clean and made them whiter.

And that was it.

Sounds like a lot, right? I guess many people would rather just hand over $5,000, make a horny dentist very happy, and get it over with. But not me.

In actual fact, I rather enjoyed experimenting. It’s highly empowering. Especially since, when I returned to have an X-ray three months later, it turned out that there was no visible deterioration in the tooth. And when I went back three months after that, the tooth had actually started to heal. My dentist was stunned. “But how?” he gasped, concerned that he might not be getting a decent blow-job again for a while. “What are you doing to it?”

When I told him, he just laughed. Thought I was crazy and said so. Coconut oil? Baking soda? Conspiracy? Ayurvedic toothpaste? And even if they did work, then he was pretty confident that most people were too lazy to go through such a rigmarole. Which is probably true.

Long story short: I’ve continued this regime of mine for four years now and I’m still fine. Not only do I not have a wretched implant in my mouth, but it would seem that the two halves of the broken tooth have somehow fused back together, because they’re still in there, stronger and healthier than ever. Plus, and best of all, I saved five grand.

Of course, everyone’s different. One size doesn’t fit all, so you can’t just duplicate what I did; you have to find what works for you. But who knows, somewhere in among these wild discoveries might be the seed of something important that will undermine our reliance on these money-hungry professionals in  future and put the ball back in our court. 

It’s what President Obama would do, I feel sure, if he had acres of time on his hands and wasn’t running a country and appearing in TV documentaries.

 

The NBC White House doc gets five magic carpets out of five.

TV Swami – he say YES.
