Yeast infection

Hi,

I'm 20 years old and since I was 14 I thought I had acne but after I got tired of it I went to a dermatologist and he told me it was really a recurring yeast infection.

So he put me on diflucan. It worked, but the yeast infection came back later that month. Not wanting to keep spending money on an expensive treatment, I decided to find some supplements that would control the yeast. I found some that were heavy in acidophilus and lo and behold: they worked! After 6 years of not being happy with my complexion I finally found something that works.

Anyway I'm writing to ask what I should do to get rid of the red spots that remain. They may even be scars that have accumulated over the years. Specifically when I'm outside (or indoors in an overly warm area) and sweating a lot my face and scalp start to itch and flush red and I always have dandruff, even after I use dandruff shampoo. Why is this?

My typical diet consists of probably one and a half meals a day, a lot of sugary and greasy foods (mostly fast food), hardly any fruits and vegetables. I don't exercise anymore either. I went from about 145 to 162 from all the inactivity. I'm not overweight and still maintain a farily high metabolism. Oftentimes my problems all come down to one rhetorical question: How do I get my life in order?

Hi James,

I can't answer all of your questions, but I can address your dandruff problem. After years of suffering with flakes and itching, I found a remedy (I think in Prevention Magazine). Get a box of Peppermint Tea bags and one small bottle of apple cider vinegar. Take a small pan and fill with water and add about 5 tea bags and bring to boil and then let steep for about 10 or 15 minutes until it is good and strong. Then mix with the cider vinegar. I bought a small container to keep it in and just keep it in the bathroom. What I do, because I have long hair, is when I'm finished with my shower after washing my hair, I fill up the bathroom sink with water and then add some tea/vinegar mixture to it and then rinse my hair and scalp really well. You will have immediate results with the itching. Give it a try. You won't be sorry.

Why the dandruff shampoo doesn't work after a while is I guess because one builds up a resistance to it.

Namaste'

Joanie

Hi, James.

You are going to have to commit yourself to learning enough about this process to get at the causes. Spend a few days reading everything you can find on this 'site (search engine, glossary, homepage and archives) about LGS, C-RS, Stress-effect storage, SR, Beth Loiselle. RD's book; and then, if you still have questions, write again.

There is a connnection between all of this and there IS a solution. You will not be able to spend all your time attacking the tips of the iceberg, though, you have to do something about the iceberg!

Walt

Thank you. I will most certainly give it a shot.
