Sometimes a Systemic Yeast Infection can have light symptoms, and because of this they're dismissed as nothing to concerned about. The problem is, this allows the yeast to enter the bloodstream where a lot of different problems can eventuate and can even become a life-threatening situation.

The body naturally has a certain amount of yeast that lives in the body in small quantities and actually help the body, without doing any harm to it. There are also different types of microorganisms inside the body that are there to keep the yeast in check so an infection does not occur.

On-going stress attacks, poor choices of food, normal pregnancy changes, immune system deficiency diseases, antibiotic medications and other disease may abolish the tiny microorganisms and thereby allow the Systemic Yeast Infection Symptoms to rage.

The Systemic Yeast Infection Symptoms can differ from each individual, but here a few of the most usual ones:

Heavy sense of exhaustion and unusual run down feelings may arise.

1. The feelings of sensory disturbances, unusual muscle aches and pains, continual headaches, constant dizziness, and complaints of the sufferering of persistent tiredness are signs of a person with Systemic Yeast Infection.

2. Unusual or sudden sensitivity to chemicals or new food allergies.
Arising troubles which haven't occurred before with several chemicals or foods are common with those suffering from Systemic Yeast Infection Symptoms.

3. Problems with the gastrointestinal tract.

On many occasions, as touched on in the previous detail of the food allergies, flatulence, inflammatory bowel disease, rectal itching, constipation, and diarrhea are the most common of the Symptoms.

It is even possible for thrush, a Yeast Infection affecting the mouth and/or throat, to develop.

4. Onset of urinary and genital problems.

5. Development of hives and skin rashes.

You could even be having a case of hives, and not know where they came from.

6. Suddenly feeling irritable or mildly depressed.

Many times people complain of Systemic Yeast Infection Symptoms that include: mental confusion, feeling of being in a 'fog', difficulty focusing or concentrating, sleepness nights, memory loss, and decreased attention span.

7. Problems with the autoimmune system.

Some autoimmune disorders that normally become worse from a Systemic Yeast Infection are sarcoidosis, scleroderma, myasthenia gravis, arthritis, hemolytic anemia, thrombocytopenic purpura, or systemic lupus erythematosus.

Yeast flourish on a body that is fed with sugar, refined starch, and chemical additives.
These chemicals, starches and sugars are also readily present in bread, cookies, chips and other junk foods which are a large part of many peoples diets.

When someone is under immense stress, the microorganisms in the body that control the yeast start to die off.

Anytime you think you may have a Systemic Yeast Infection Symptoms, you need to check with your doctor about what tests need to be run to determine what your body's level of Yeast organism is.
All in all, remember that it's vital to know if you are dealing with a Systemic Yeast Infection Symptoms so you can get the proper treatment.

    SSS, Some Sorta Something?
    That’s the “explanation” from one of our family friends who is a Rheumatologist and his wife who is in Infectious Disease. My ANA is so far out of whack, my thyroid has some pretty intense antibodies but NOTHING is going on physically from that. I have neuropathy like it’s cool (could be worse if I wasn’t on the neurontin for migraine prevention) and the Neurologist saw nothing in my MRI or my Nerve Study. So now I get to wait a few months before we run some more tests.

    Anyone have to deal with this BS before? I suppose I’m just really more annoyed with no answers than anything. No, I don’t blame the doctors, it’s not as though they can fix what they can’t see. Just curious how many other people had to play this game before they got an answer?

      ACCUPRIL
      , or lisinoprilSome Trade Names

      COZAAR
      , or valsartanSome Trade Names
      DIOVAN
      , alone or in combination is the mainstay of both prevention and treatment. When a person with a disease such as systemic lupus erythematosus or diabetes mellitus has mild or moderate proteinuria, an ACE inhibitor or ARB is used as soon as possible because it may prevent proteinuria from increasing and kidney function from worsening.

      When a person who already has nephrotic syndrome is treated with an ACE inhibitor or ARB, symptoms may improve, the amount of protein excreted in the urine usually decreases, and lipid concentrations in the blood are likely to decline. However, these drugs can increase the potassium levels in the blood in people who have moderate to severe kidney failure, which can cause potentially dangerous heart rhythm abnormalities.

      The most common causes of kidney disease are diabetes and hypertension (high blood pressure). Studies have shown that diabetes causes around half of all cases of kidney failure, and high pressure causes just over a quarter of cases.

      Diabetes
      Diabetes is a condition where the body does not produce enough insulin (type 1 diabetes) or does not make effective use of it (type 2 diabetes). Our bodies need insulin because it breaks down the glucose (sugar) in our blood in order to produce carbohydrate which provides us with energy.

      If your diabetes is not well controlled, too much glucose (sugar) can build up in your blood. The glucose can then damage the nephrons (tiny filters), which in turn, affects the abilities of your kidneys to filter out waste products and fluids.

      Type 1 diabetes is more likely to lead to kidney disease. It is estimated that between 20-40% of people with type 1 diabetes will develop kidney disease by the age of 50.

      Kidney disease rarely occurs in the first 10 years of diabetes, and usually between 15-25 years will pass before kidney disease occurs. However, as treatment methods for diabetes improve, and diabetes can be better controlled, the number of people with diabetes who develop kidney disease is gradually falling.

      Hypertension
      Blood pressure is a measurement of how much pressure is required by your heart to pump the blood around your veins and arteries. Too much pressure can result in damage to your body’s organs, and can lead to heart disease.

      The causes of 90% of cases of high blood pressure (hypertension) are unknown, but there appears to be a link between the condition and general health, diet and lifestyle

      Hypertension causes damage by putting strain on the small blood vessels in the kidneys. This prevents the filtering process from working properly.

      Other causes of kidney disease include:

      •glomerulonephritis (inflammation of the kidney),
      •pyelonephritis (infection in the kidney),
      •polycystic kidney disease (an inherited condition in which both kidneys are several times the normal size due to the gradual growth of masses of cysts),
      •failure of normal kidney development in an unborn baby while developing in the womb,
      •systemic lupus erythematosus (disease of the immune system where the body attacks the kidney as though it were foreign tissue),
      •malaria and yellow fever (tropical diseases spread by mosquitoes) ,
      •jaundice (a yellowing of the skin),
      •overuse of medicines, such as nonsteroid anti-inflammatory medicines (NSAIDs), the most well known of which are aspirin and ibuprofen, as well as illegal drugs, such as heroin and cocaine,
      •prolonged exposure to fuels, solvents and lead,
      •blockages – for example, due to kidney stones, and
      •a sharp blow or physical injury, to the kidney.

      If you have a chronic condition that can cause kidney disease, such as diabetes, it is important that you carefully manage your condition. Follow all the advice given to you by your GP and keep all appointments relating to your condition. People with diabetes are recommended to have their kidney function tested every year.

      Diet

      Diet plays an important role in preventing kidney disease. A healthy diet will lower your levels of cholesterol and keep your blood pressure at a healthy level. You should eat a balanced diet, including plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables (five portions a day) and whole grains.

      Exercise

      Regular exercise can help lower blood pressure and it can also help to prevent other chronic conditions, such as diabetes and heart disease. Thirty minutes of moderate exercise a day, at least five times a week, is recommended. The exercise should be vigorous enough that it leaves your heart beating faster and you should feel slightly out of breath. Examples of moderate exercise are going for a brisk walk, or walking up a hill.

    Is there a diet for those with Lupus?
    I want to know if there are any diets to followto relieve the symtoms of lupus. I heard that citrus aggreivates the joints, which sucks cause I love oranges and lemons. Althafa sprouts are not good either. Anyone have idea where to find a hit list of things I should limit or not eat?
    Are there certain things I should avoid?

      Dear Asker!

      Here is a good Diet and Lifestyle changes for patients with Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

      The following are some tips for maintaining a healthy diet:

      * Eat a diet low in saturated fats. Not all fats are unhealthy. Some studies suggest that omega-3 fatty acids, which are fat compounds found in fish oil, black currant or primrose seed oils, and flax seed, have anti-inflammatory and nerve protecting actions.

      Omega-3 fatty acids are essential acids. Medical research suggests they may have anti-inflammatory properties.

      * Choose whole grains and fresh vegetables and fruits. According to some studies, a diet rich in fruits and vegetables can lower homocysteine levels, which are elevated in patients with SLE and may be a risk factor for heart disease. Researchers are also investigating compounds called indoles, also known as mustard oil, which are found in broccoli, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, kale, kohlrabi, collard and mustard greens, rutabaga, turnips, and bok choy. Indoles stimulate enzymes that convert estrogen to a more benign type. Eating vegetables certainly will not cure SLE, but they offer many general health benefits.

      * Get most proteins from vegetables, particularly soy.
      * Avoiding dairy and meat products may help protect the kidneys.
      * Take extra calcium and vitamin D to prevent osteoporosis (this is particularly useful for patients taking corticosteroids).
      * Supplements of vitamins B12, B6, and folate may be necessary, especially in people whose blood tests show high levels of homocysteine.
      * Exercise is safe, but patients should not expect it to improve symptoms, including joint aches and fatigue.
      * Restrict salt (particularly for patients with signs of high blood pressure and kidney disease).

      Of possible interest to patients with SLE is a 2002 report that patients with rheumatoid arthritis (also an inflammatory autoimmune condition) experienced improvement when they went on the Mediterranean diet, which stresses fish (which contains anti-inflammatory factors), olive oil, garlic, whole grains, nuts, and fresh fruits and vegetables. In any case, such a diet is heart-healthy, which is important for patients with SLE

      Prevention Against Infections

      Patients should minimize their exposure to crowds or people with contagious illnesses. Careful hygiene, including dental hygiene, is also important.

      Avoiding SLE Triggers

      Simple preventive measures include avoiding overexposure to ultraviolet rays and wearing protective clothing and sunblocks. There is some concern that allergy shots may cause flare ups in certain cases. Patients who may benefit from them should discuss risks and benefits with an SLE specialist. In general, patients with SLE should use only hypoallergenic cosmetics or hair products.

      Reducing Stress

      Chronic stress has profound physical effects and influences the progression of SLE. According to one study, patients with SLE differ from healthy individuals in their immune responses to stress, and psychological stress can induce flare-ups in patients with SLE. Patients should try to avoid undue emotional or physical stress. Getting adequate rest of at least 8 hours and possibly napping during the day may be helpful. Maintaining social relationships and healthy activities may also help prevent the depression and anxiety associated with the disease.

      Hope that may help you!
      Good luck!

    Rare South American Herbs???
    My brother-in-law has a very rare tumor. He’s told us about a South American herb that is very rare and rather expensive. This herb is supposed to help reduce tumors. Does anyone know anything about this or what this herb is called? I have searched the internet and can find nothing at all… Any links or information would be very helpful.

      I have a great book on amazon herbs in which several are indicated for tumor reduction or specific cancers. Una de Gato, or Cat’s Claw has recieved a lot of attention but there are many others. FROM WIKI:
      Some ingredients appear to act as anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anticancer agents.[5] As a homeopathic treatment, Cat’s Claw is used to treat intestinal ailments such as Crohn’s disease, gastric ulcers and tumors, parasites, colitis, gastritis, diverticulitis and leaky bowel syndrome, while manufacturers claim that U. tomentosa can also be used in the treatment of AIDS in combination with AZT, the treatment and prevention of arthritis and rheumatism, diabetes, PMS, chronic fatigue syndrome, prostate conditions,[6] immune modulation,[7] Lyme disease[8] and systemic lupus erythematosus.[9] A 2005 review of the scholarly literature on Cat’s Claw indicates there is supporting evidence toward its use in treating cancer, inflammation, viral infection and vascular conditions, and for its use as an immunostimulant, antioxidant, antibacterial and CNS-related agent.[5]

      Role in immunomodulation

      The hormonally active form of vitamin D mediates immunological effects by binding to nuclear vitamin D receptors (VDR) which are present in most immune cell types including both innate and adaptive immune cells. The VDR is expressed constitutively in monocytes and in activated macrophages, dendritic cells, NK cells, T and B cells. In line with this observation, activation of the VDR has potent anti-proliferative, pro-differentiative, and immunomodulatory functions including both immune-enhancing and immunosuppressive effects.[48]

      VDR ligands have been shown to increase the activity of natural killer cells, and enhance the phagocytic activity of macrophages.[17] Active vitamin D hormone also increases the production of cathelicidin, an antimicrobial peptide that is produced in macrophages triggered by bacteria, viruses, and fungi.[49] Vitamin D deficiency tends to increase the risk of infections, such as influenza[50] and tuberculosis[51][52][53]. In a 1997 study, Ethiopian children with rickets were 13 times more likely to get pneumonia than children without rickets.[54]

      Effects of VDR-ligands, such as vitamin D hormone, on T-cells include suppression of T cell activation and induction of regulatory T cells, as well as effects on cytokine secretion patterns.[55] VDR-ligands have also been shown to affect maturation, differentiation, and migration of dendritic cells, and inhibits DC-dependent T cell activation, resulting in an overall state of immunosuppression.[56]

      These immunoregulatory properties indicate that ligands with the potential to activate the VDR, including supplementation with calcitriol (as well as a number of synthetic modulators), may have therapeutic clinical applications in the treatment of; inflammatory diseases (rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis), dermatological conditions (psoriasis, actinic keratosis), osteoporosis, cancers (prostate, colon, breast, myelodysplasia, leukemia, head and neck squamous cell carcinoma, and basal cell carcinoma), and autoimmune diseases (systemic lupus erythematosus, type I diabetes); central nervous systems diseases (multiple sclerosis); and in preventing organ transplant rejection.[48]

      A 2006 study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, reported evidence of a link between Vitamin D deficiency and the onset of multiple sclerosis; the authors posit that this is due to the immune-response suppression properties of Vitamin D.[57] Further research indicates that vitamin D is required to activate a histocompatibility gene (HLA-DRB1*1501) necessary for differentiating between self and foreign proteins in a subgroup of individuals genetically predisposed to MS.[58]

      [edit] Role in cancer prevention and recovery

      The vitamin D hormone, calcitriol, has been found to induce death of cancer cells in vitro and in vivo. The anti-cancer activity of vitamin D is thought to result from its role as a nuclear transcription factor that regulates cell growth, differentiation, apoptosis and a wide range of cellular mechanisms central to the development of cancer.[59] These effects may be mediated through vitamin D receptors expressed in cancer cells.[17]

      A search of primary and review medical literature published between 1970 and 2007 found an increasing body of research supporting the hypothesis that the active form of vitamin D has significant, protective effects against the development of cancer. Epidemiological studies show an inverse association between sun exposure, serum levels of 25(OH)D, and intakes of vitamin D and risk of developing and/or surviving cancer. In 2005, scientists released a metastudy which demonstrated a beneficial correlation between vitamin D intake and prevention of cancer. Drawing from a meta-analysis of 63 published reports, the authors showed that intake of an additional 1,000 international units (IU) (or 25 micrograms) of vitamin D daily reduced an individual’s colon cancer risk by 50%, and breast and ovarian cancer risks by 30%.[60][61][62] A scientific review undertaken by the National Cancer Institute found that vitamin D was beneficial in preventing colorectal cancer, which showed an inverse relationship with blood levels of 80 nmol/L or higher associated with a 72% risk reduction. However, the same study found no link between baseline vitamin D status and overall cancer mortality.[63]

      A 2006 study using data on over 4 million cancer patients from 13 different countries showed a marked difference in cancer risk between countries classified as sunny and countries classified as less–sunny for a number of different cancers.[64] Research has also suggested that cancer patients who have surgery or treatment in the summer — and therefore make more endogenous vitamin D — have a better chance of surviving their cancer than those who undergo treatment in the winter when they are exposed to less sunlight.[65] Another 2006 study found that taking the U.S. RDA of vitamin D (4
