Right off the bat, let me say that I am not connected with the medical industry in any way. Also, I am not a writer or a reporter. This is my first published work. This is my own personal story, in my own words. I write like I talk. So forgive my grammar and punctuation. I was overwhelmed to get my story out there. Driven, actually.
Please do not use the information I put forth to diagnose or treat yourself. Rather, see if any of this might be going on inside you or a loved one. Then take the appropriate steps to help yourself. I say that because the American medical racket, I mean community, doesn’t give a rat’s patooty about the CAUSE of your ailments. That’s not their job. Their job is to represent the drug corporations and prescribe cancer causing poisons to exacerbate your condition. I don’t know if they are clueless in that regard or if they are in cahoots.
I find it odd that I, an everyday person, would connect the dots with just the minute amount of reading I have done in comparison to the years of education and training doctors are put through. And the information is out there. All that I have learned has been found on the Internet. Not on the hokey sites. From REAL, trusted sites by established medical and health care professionals.
I am a 54 year old female. I went through the “CHANGE” uneventfully, two years ago. I am a smoker, but no a drinker. I’ve had odd ailments come and go for the majority of my adult life. Illnesses that could never be diagnosed by a doctor. It has been MANY doctors over the course of my lifetime. The common thread between them all has been to prescribe antibiotics and or steroids. Mostly antibiotics. Antibiotics are cheap, quick and they make whatever your complaint is, go away. Fine. Until it all starts a chain of events, as in my situation.
I am guessing that I’ve been hedging off this condition for decades until my system finally collapsed last year. I got a bug, nothing catastrophic. But my weakness would not go away. To the bone, complete weakness. Then the constipation began. By the third day I took a stool softener. Nothing happened. On the fifth day, I took a laxative. FINALLY, relief. But this began the pattern of constipation. I’d been bloated for months. I awoke fairly normal sized… for a big gal from Texas that likes her flour tortillas. But by the end of the day, I was so swollen that it caused pain along the bottom of my rib cage.
The weakness degraded to total inability to do the anything other than get out of bed, make it to my computer, then back to bed. I work from home, but was unable to concentrate enough to get anything accomplished. I could not keep house or cook. I could barely brush my hair. Which by the way, was falling out by the handfuls. My eyebrows fell out also. My eyes were dry. When I tapped my teeth together, it sounded hollow. Didn’t have any mucous. My sinus passages actually were hollow!
One night in February 2010, I became so weak that I feared for my life. I insisted my husband take me to the ER. Six hours later and many thousands of dollars on tests, the Doctor diagnosed me as DEPRESSED. I was a limp, pitiful lump of a human who couldn’t even hold my head up and could not quit crying for three weeks. My heart was thumping out of my chest. I couldn’t poop. I couldn’t stand up straight. My muscles quivered from fatigue. Light of any kind was like being stabbed in the eye. My voice sounded like I gargled with Draino. I could not sleep. After sleep, I did not feel restored. My old familiar problem with painful back spasms had begun yet again. My blood pressure was 165 over 122. I had gained a pound a day for 35 days.
This was NOT normal by any stretch of the imagination. How could this 30 year old punk tell me that I am healthy, just depressed. The tests had all come back within the normal range. I was referred to MHMR.
That took 6 weeks. When I finally got a face to face with the Psychiatrist, he said it was obvious to him that I had a Thyroid problem just from my appearance. He ordered the basic test. It came back normal. He was in agreement with me that I was not depressed. His wife suffers from hypothyroidism and he was familiar with all of the symptoms. Since he was not a medical doctor, he could not treat me for thyroid issues. But he did say that HASHIMOTO’S Hypothyroidism is often missed with the basic tests. It felt good to have a direction to aim for.
Unable to afford a doctor due to not being able to work, I began my online search for self help. I discovered that people have been treating hypothyroidism for over a century with the dried glands from pigs and cows. I was amazed that Dessicated Bovine Glands were still in use and sold over the counter today. What a relief to get these in my system. It took a couple of months of tweaking to get my dosage just right. And I had days where I just didn’t feel right at all. I never achieved 100% restored health. But it was so much better than being a member of the walking dead.
November 2010, I knew that I would not regain health with just the thyroid supplements. New things were going on inside of me, plus some old recurring ones. I’ve had outbreaks of BOILS in all of the warm folds of my body for 20 years. Yes, 20 years. It was one of the things that I got antibiotics for on a regular basis. They would return shortly afterwards. NOTHING made them go away, no pill, no cream, no ointment. I even had one doctor preach to me the benefits of good personal hygiene. HUMILIATING beyond words. And I’ve had a horrid case of Athlete’s Foot infection for 20 years. The bloating was nonstop by now. And the BRAIN FOG, mental confusion and the inability to hold onto a thought. You are BRAIN POOR when you can’t RUB TWO THOUGHTS TOGETHER. I also had a disgusting film or coating on my tongue and the roof of my mouth. For over a year, I’d developed a gurgling in my voice box. My lungs are clear. It was not congestion. It was in my throat. Sleep was impossible until I could clear it out. It took many attempts and pressing on my throat to expel it. The spit was foamy with tiny gray brown specks. Being a smoker, my first thought was that I’d finally achieved throat cancer.
So I dragged my big ‘ol butt back to the computer and search for coated tongue. That lead me to thrush, which lead me to CANDIDA FUNGUS or FUNGI. And that, my friends, is why I am writing this tonight. I’d never experienced an epiphany before. But as I read about the devastation caused by the Candida fungus, a light went on in my head like never before. I sat there and cried. I cried and tried to read through the tears. A feeling came over me that was almost Spiritual and it lifted me to a standing position. I am NOT a religious person. So let me tell you that it was overwhelming to experience this.
My poor husband was in the bathroom at the time. I came charging in with tears streaming down my face. I told him to remain seated, that I wanted to get some things straight in my own head and needed him to listen. Needless to say, I had his undivided attention. I mean, where’s he going to go? He was nice enough to do a Courtesy Flush. I said that if everything I’d read about hypothyroidism and natural treatment were correct, and I believed them to be… then why don’t I feel healthy? What are these other issues about? I said that I believed I have TWO things going on inside me at once. The Hypothyroidism and the Candida Fungal Infection. I said that I think I’ve got the thyroid thing under control, but now I need to concentrate on the Candida. He encouraged me to go down that path. I thanked him for his time and cried a bit more.
That night I did the extremely SIMPLE SPIT TEST into a clear glass of water. Within one minute, long strands or legs began growing out of the bottom of the spit. I set out some rules & regs to live an Atkin’s Diet, low carbohydrate type lifestyle. Candida Yeast FEEDS on sugars. Just like yeast does when making bread. You must ADD sugar to make the yeast come alive or your bread will not rise, hence… the bloating inside me. To live carb-free is difficult enough, but with Candida, it’s even harder. I’d feel good for a few days and cheat, then I’d be right back where I was. I also bought OTC anti-fungal cream at our local Dollar Store and smeared it everywhere. This has been the only thing to ease the boils. This all came to a head two weeks ago. We were completely broke and I could not afford to purchase my online thyroid meds. After the third day without them, all of my old symptoms returned in lesser degrees. This time we headed to an ER in an adjacent town. It was another humiliating experience. I told the ER Doctor what I’d been doing with my thyroid and that I needed a prescription for SYNTHROID. The natural meds were costing us around $150. per month. Synthroid is only $4. for generic at WalMart. Then I told him how I thought antibiotics had caused all this other stuff to happen to me. I showed him the boils. He scoffed at my opinion and said, without one test being done, that it was Folliculitis. Since the thyroid tests came back normal once again, he even doubted that I had a problem. But he was nice enough to write an Rx for the lowest Synthroid on the market. And of course, I got another Rx for antibiotics, which I will not fill. Then I misspoke and said I thought “ALL” of my problems were a result of a severe Candida infection. I meant to say “all of my OTHER problems”. But before I could correct myself, he jumped in laughing, snorting actually and asked if I seriously thought the Candida germ could alter my thyroid. But he didn’t give me a chance to speak, as he stood up and said I needed to find a doctor to treat me. HELLO??????? Aren’t I sitting here with a DOCTOR??? That was it, visit over. We have not received the bill yet for this one. Surely it will be thousands of dollars also.
But I could not get that out of my head… Candida caused ALL of my problems. When we returned home, yet again I headed to the computer. This time I ran a search for Candida – Thyroid. Blown away. Absolutely blown away by the information I found. YES, it happens. Candida overwhelms the thyroid. It is not a disease nor a condition or any of that stuff. It simply can not keep up with it’s function due to the overwhelming Candida. So, it was a BLESSING that I ran out of meds, otherwise I’d never have thought to look it up online. I have since gotten back on the thyroid meds and I’m ALMOST feeling well again.
Then that got me to look up Candida with every illness I could think of off the top of my head. Time after time, it appears someone is connecting the dots from Candida to everything. I read that antibiotics cause the simple Candida Yeast to morph into something more virulent. One of the most devastating revelations was that Candida is responsible for decomposition of our body after death. Literally, the WALKING DEAD. That in severe cases of infection, Candida develops into CANCER. And that the final stages of Candida are ALWAYS FATAL. Chilled me to the bone. Then I got to thinking… didn’t I hear somewhere years ago that a woman can pass on a vaginal yeast infection to her partner through sex? Isn’t Thrush contagious? So I searched for Candida Contagious. Yes, you guessed it. So if I’m understanding this correctly, Candida can be passed from one person to another and if left untreated, it will develop into Cancer and the final stages are always fatal. Yep, that just about sums it up.
Now I am armed with the knowledge that ALL cancer victims are overloaded with the Mycelial Candida Fungus. Not SOME of them, but ALL of them. Living or dead. All types of cancer. Loaded with candida. Old School belief was that cancer opened the door to it. New School belief is just the opposite… it is thought Candida opens the door not only to all types of cancer, but an endless list of other diseases, conditions and ailments. And that once the Candida is addressed, vast improvement is seen in all areas of one’s health. Fascinating, huh?
So I will NOT cheat on my NO CARB DIET ever again. I have since learned about the use of SPECIFIC Probiotics that have been cultured to overwhelm the Candida fungus. They are already in our system, but the Candida is the new boss. OK, then. I have ordered this probiotic and anxiously await it’s arrival. In the meantime, the kitchen pantry has had a makeover. Out went the potatoes, rice, macaroni, spaghetti, sugar, flour and the milk… basically all of the WHITE FOODS. I am soaking in baking soda baths to relieve the boils & Athlete’s Foot problem. I brush my teeth with a paste made of baking soda and hydrogen peroxide. I limit my coffee to one cup of decaf… sorry, just can’t let go of that one. I quit ALL carbonated beverages. They are highly acidic. Candida thrives in an acidic system. And Aspartame, aka Equal, is POISON. I drink glasses and glasses of homemade lemon-limeade, sweetened with STEVIA, an ALL NATURAL sweetener. The last grocery trip brought home tons of fresh vegetables, no fruits other that lemons and limes. And I bought some PHILLIPS COLON HEALTH Probiotics. Don’t look for the number of LIVE BACTERIA. Look for the number of STRAINS. This one has three. I’ve been on it and eating ZERO CARBS for three days. In a seated position, my waist WAS 54 inches around. Tonight it is only 42 inches. AMAZING to say the least. I know that I am on the right track. I will not be derailed this time.
I was going to write this last ER Doctor a nasty letter. Then I thought to myself that would be a NEGATIVE action affecting one person. Why not make a POSITIVE step that could HELP an unknown number of people. I mean if you knew how to FIX a loved one or yourself or a friend, a co-worker… wouldn’t you???
In closing, I did not include a bunch of links because there are just too many. I want YOU to run these searches. I want YOU to learn how to best help yourself. I want YOU to take action. I want you to THINK about the number of cancer deaths we have in our county. Antibiotics were put into the mainstream in 1940. Everyone acknowledges the rise in cancer after WWII. We’ve been told cancer is caused by chemicals or fertilizers or environmental, always something else. People have smoked for centuries, but not until AFTER WWII, did they begin succumbing to tobacco related cancers. Prior to WWII, it was emphysema, not cancer. I want you to think about all of the pain, misery and TERROR the drug corporations are putting us through if this is true. You can’t tell me that I have discovered something heretofore never thought of. I’m just not that smart. I am NOT a genius, just overloaded with common sense. And 2+2 were not adding up. Think of all the people that have died of lung cancer and they never smoked a day in their life. Candida goes to the lungs in the final stages. DUH… Think of all the people that have had their throat butchered by cancer surgery, when maybe something as simple as an anti-fungal would have cleared up their misfortune. Pardon the pun, but I think the drug corporations have successfully created a SMOKE SCREEN by pointing the finger of blame at tobacco.
I’ll go a step further… think about the meat you eat. ALL commercial meat producers load up their livestock with antibiotics. Do you honestly think cooking it makes it disappear? NOT. And when you think of it in those terms, does it sound like a conspiracy to you? Why are they forever inventing the next generation of antibiotics? Are they attempting to perfect their poisons? Is it DESIGNER DEATH in a capsule? It behooves their corporate purpose of increasing profits to MAKE us sick. I personally have bought over 100 tubes of foot cream in the past 5 years. Look up all of the connected illnesses with Candida. Leaky Gut Syndrome, GERD, Acid Reflux, high blood pressure, ADD & ADHD, bladder illnesses, heart disease and the list never stops. It reminds me of the old joke about the difference between a prostitute and the government. Email me for the punchline, if you don’t know it already.
I’ll go one step further. Now take a look at the Fast Food industry in this country. All they sell are food items loaded with carbohydrates. Yes, I’m afraid it is all a gigantic conspiracy. Someone knows something and they aren’t going to let you and I in on it.
Now, I want you to think about the big business of cancer and related illnesses. And it is a BUSINESS. What if it were this easy to PREVENT most cancers? Wouldn’t it bring our economy to a grinding halt if no one were sick and dying? Wouldn’t there be a lot of empty hospitals? Wouldn’t there be NO LINES, NO WAITING at the Doctor’s Office? Wouldn’t there be a lot less students in the medical universities? Wouldn’t it be lovely if Chemo & Radiation treatments were a thing of the past? Wouldn’t it be wonderful if Aunt Susie were still here with us? How about Granny or Grandpa? Wouldn’t it be lovely to live a HEALTHY life until you are in your 90’s? What if no one craved those fast food carbohydrates anymore? What if you woke up one day and realized that all of the cancer organizations got you to run for the cure and they KNEW the cure all the while? How would you feel about them then? Have you ever stopped to think about all the research facilities and they aren’t REALLY any closer to finding the cure, are they? Have you ever wondered why the organizations NEED that money of yours??? Because they’re playing off of your emotions, your fears, your sorrow. Someone, somewhere is bringing home a nice hefty paycheck off of duping you into believing that cancer is a MYSTERY. Do you see why I say the medical community and the business of cancer is a RACKET?
I am NOT a nut-job. I can be goofy as all get out, but sane and levelheaded, I assure you. And only now that my thoughts have become cohesive once again, am I able to bring this to you. The medical community will not even acknowledge I am sick. But I am one hard-headed old gal and this time, I think it’s paid off. I look forward to being a cantankerous old broad. Wish me luck!!!
