IBS,HEMORRHOIDS, CANDIDIASIS; THE BOWEL CONNECTION

"There's Fungus among us" is a frequent lament with Diabetes type2 people. Toe nail fungus, Athletes foot, Thrush and overloads of Candida Albicans in the bowel. For me the Candida locks up my colon and makes constipation a constant fact of life.
Just do a search for diabetes-candidiasis or diabetes-IBS and you'll see so many sites deal with the connection it is overwhelming, toss in Fibromyalgia and you'll see that all of this is interrelated.

I tried taking
for the overgrowth and it really helps until it goes nuts again, I've also had rounds of taking probiotics, and they reallly help too.

Of course When the IBS kicks in I have trouble with constipation, and since I've had problematic hemorrhoids for forever I get flare-ups with them too. However, when I took Venapro. I never again had a flare up, and it's been a few years since I took it.

We've all been there. Abdominal cramps, bloating, gas, diarrhea (possibly painful), or constipation.
But most of us haven't had to deal with these severe, painful symptoms day after day, or have them flare up unexpectedly every few months. Those who do may have irritable bowel syndrome.
Although IBS is one of the most common complaints reported to physicians, especially by women, it is not a disease or an infection. And it is not caused by diabetes. It is, rather, a disorder in which the bowel (large intestine) does not work the way it should.
Hormonal changes can also cause IBS, which is why women with this difficulty may suffer increased symptoms during menstruation.
There is some controversy as to whether stress actually causes IBS, but it can definitely bring on a flare-up in those who already have the problem.
Yoder also advises monitoring your blood glucose (sugar) frequently while you're doing your detective work. That will help you pinpoint the way new foods affect your blood glucose, especially during flare-ups.
"Talk with your doctor or dietitian about eating smaller meals, then filling out your food plan with snacks," Yoder adds. "This will also help keep your diabetes in control while helping prevent IBS flare-ups; smaller meals will produce less stimulation along the gastrointestinal tract."


I'm not so sure about that, In my experience smaller meals make my bowel more sluggish less inclined to keep on moving along. I really feel more raw foods help. I think the enzyme/fiber connection really rocks.

As for thrush, toe nail fungus and candidiasis in the gut I swear by CellPower™
I use a few drops 1:3 of cellpower on my toothbrush for thrush, a few drops full strength under my toenails for nail fungus and take it three times per day to control the candidiasis in my colon. And it contains enzymes!!!

~In the First Stage of Candida, the mucous membrane areas of the body may be infected. Each day more people seem to be allergic to everything in their environment. Repeated bouts of bronchitis, sinusitis, tonsillitis, and strep or staph infections may be typical. Mononucleosis and pneumonia may also be noted. It is easy to perceive that each of these successive illnesses requires more and more antibiotics, which may open the door for further Candida overgrowth. Talk about a vicious circle!
~The Second Stage of Candida Symptoms may involve more generalized reactions such as PAIN, HEADACHES (including Migraine), EXTREME FATIGUE, PSORIASIS, INFECTIONS OF THE NAILS, MUSCLE ACHES, JOINT PAINS, AND ARTHRITIS. Naturally, drug after drug is usually taken in hopes of alleviating these miserable conditions. In most cases, the Candida SYMPTOMS alone are being treated--while the CAUSE (Candida overgrowth) may be literally being PROMOTED at the same time!
~The Third Stage of Candida Symptoms may involve MENTAL and BEHAVIORAL RESPONSES: Inability to concentrate, not being able to read or follow a television program or carry on a hobby, serious forgetfulness, memory loss, mental confusion, not being able to think of the words to say something, switching around of words and letters when trying to speak and/or write something, loss of previous skills (such as how-to-type or how-to-play-the-piano, etc.) These frightening problems may often lead to "HOPELESS CRYING" SPELLS, SEVERE DEPRESSION, SLEEP DISORDERS (may include insomnia, confusion dreams, nightmares, apnea, and not feeling rested or restored after sleep), IRRATIONAL THOUGHTS, UNUSUAL FEARS, PHOBIAS, PANIC/ANXIETY ATTACKS, MUSCLE TWITCHING, IRRITABILITY, VIOLENCE, AGGRESSIVE BEHAVIOR, and even EPILEPTIC SEIZURES and THOUGHTS OF DEATH OR SUICIDE. Living with these Candida Symptoms is not a great way to live life. Sometimes people with these symptoms are labeled "Mentally ill", thought to be suffering from manic-depressive Psychosis or Schizophrenia. These desperately sick patients are sometimes turned over to the care of a psychiatrist or hospitalized in a mental institution. They may be given antidepressants, tranquilizers, lithium, etc. to lighten the mental symptoms. . But the CAUSE may be overlooked and the patient is not CURED on a long-term basis.


Now,THAT explains a lot, it explains why I was so crazy when I was living in Eastern Washington, and why I feel so much better these days. PSSSsssssssssst CellPower™ really works against Candida.

It also explains stuff from lately too, I've been eating sugary things because it hasn't affected my blood sugar, BUT and this is a very big BUT; candidiasis feeds off of sugar, it shares with cancer on that, The fungus grows~ proliferates~ and expands it's hold, with sugar, so now that I'm feeling weepy, depressed; the insomnia, the fatigue,the pain, all are symptoms of candidiasis, second and third stage. This is exactly why I write this so I'll see in black and white exactly what I'm doing wrong and why I'm sick.

also I'm using:
FLAX SEED OIL for my colon, but of course FLAX SEED OIL is also a great source of omega-3 essential fatty acids.
And one each of the four essential minerals each day:
~SELENIUMhelps immune system,fights infection and aids circulation
~MAGNESIUMhelps to relax you, aids stress and muscle relaxing
~CHROMIUMimproves insulin sensitivity, and helps lower blood sugar.
~ZINC every day.

-----THE GARDEN GNOME


~~~jokes and stuff~~~
I use to have a Comfort Zone
Where I knew I couldn't fail
The same four walls of busy work
Were really more like jail.

I longed so much to do the things
I'd never done before,
But I stayed inside my Comfort Zone
And paced the same old floor

I claimed to be so busy
With the things inside my zone,
But deep inside I longed for
Something special of my own.

I couldn't let my life go by,
Just watching others win.
I held my breath and stepped outside
And let the change begin.

I took a step and with new strength
I'd never felt before,
I kissed my Comfort Zone 'goodbye'
And closed and locked the door.

If you are in a Comfort Zone,
Afraid to venture out,
Remember that all winners were
At one time filled with doubt.

A step or two and words of praise,
Can make your dreams come true.
Greet your future with a smile,
Success is there for you!

My friend Emma and I watched a brand-new mobile home being towed past us as we drove down Interstate 40 near Nashville. "There goes our house," I joked.

A caravan of seven identical trucks went rolling by, one after the other. As the last house disappeared from sight, Emma declared, "And there goes the neighborhood."

~~~

My wife asked me to help one of our neighbors, a young mother whose sailor husband was at sea. Her car had to have something called a freeze plug replaced -- a job that took two days. Then I discovered the battery was dead and the starter was shot, so I fixed those too. Days later I proudly handed the woman her keys saying, "Now your car is good for many more miles."

"Thanks," she said. "All I care is it runs long enough to make it to the dealer. I'm trading it in tomorrow."

After living in the United States for 17 years, my Chinese friend Mabel applied for citizenship. She passed her exam with flying colors. Although she had officially joined a new country, she discovered she hadn't really left her old one behind.

"They gave me an American flag as a welcome gift," she told me. "The tag on it said 'Made in China.' "

~~~

My adult son was having serious trouble breathing, so I called for an ambulance. I was surprised to find him smiling when I got to the hospital. "What's so funny?" I asked.

"I'm just glad to be here," he explained. "When I looked up at the two EMTs hovering over me, I caught a glimpse of their name tags. One guy's read 'Priest' and the other said 'Buzzard.' "
~~~

Days after I moved into a new condo, my neighbor came over to welcome me. At the end of her visit, she said, "By the way, my husband said he'd give you $20 for your wind chimes."

"He can get them cheaper in a store," I pointed out.

"I know, but he wants yours," she said. "They've been keeping him up at night."

And one more a utube funny
male vanity
I pray for all of you that your day is blessed and your path is straight.

Perineoplasty (or Perineorrhaphy) has an objective of making
this area look normal by cutting out excess skin
and flaccid skin tags. Once you do, you will know which type of remover to buy that
will not irritate your skin. There are many different reasons that could lead to the development of these tags on the
skin.
