Overcoming Yeast Infections

Yeast infections are a common occurrence with many women. There are primarily caused by anti-biotics or the usage of birth control pills. Anti-biotics destroy the healthy flora in your vagina causing a yeast overgrowth. Birth control pills also cause yeast infections. Birth control pills are one of the worst things a women can ever take. They have become more popular in the past several years and a result of that is the increase in yeast infections amongst women. I did a video on the dangers of birth control pills which you can view here: The Dangers of Birth Control Pills.

A bad diet and stress also contributes to a yeast infection. The processed food diet filled with refined grains and sugars play a major role in candida overgrowth which often leads to a yeast infection. Stress also causes the good bacteria in your vagina to die. Stress is a major killer here in America. There are numerous tools for reducing or managing stress and the most effective one is the Emotional Freedom Technique. This technique is an highly effective acupressure technique which addresses the CAUSE of your stress so it can be relieved. A lot of stress is caused by our negative thinking and focus. One great way to relieve stress is to turn off the TV. TV gives you nothing but fear and if you have no clue what is going on in the world, then will likely stress less. Usually what is going on the world does not affect you anyways. You can use the Emotional Freedom Technique when you find yourself stressed or down. You can also use it when you catch yourself stressing (being negative). The technique will eliminate stress and those negative feelings and thoughts often in a matter of minutes.

In my e-book, A Woman's Guide to Herbs, I detail natural and highly effective remedies for eliminating a yeast infection in a day or less. Yeast infections are a very easy disease to resolve and my e-book gives you highly effective remedies and a simple solution for eliminating a yeast infection overnight. Do not waste your money on toxic vaginal creams laced with harmful chemicals. A change of diet is also recommended along with the consistent usage of EFT. You can receive tips on nutrition and how to use EFT to relieve stress through setting up a health consultation with me.

Berry Delight Smoothie

I love Dates and I love Smoothies. Smoothies are a great way to get more anti-oxidant rich fruits into your diet. Smoothies are easy to make, can be really tasty, and can be given to children as a "sweet" way to get more nutrition into their diet. Fruits are loaded with fiber, minerals, and nutrients and increased consumption of many of these fruits can help prevent infections and decrease your risk of just about every disease you can think of. I am a big fan of berries so this smoothie recipe below will contain lots of berries which are usually very high in immune boosting Vitamin C.

Dates are on the other hand are a delicious fruit that is native to the Middle East. They are extremely sweet and rich in nutrients. Dates are a good source of fiber, calcium, potassium, B-Vitamins, magnesium, protein, and abundance of trace minerals like copper and magnesium. I recommend everyone use Dates in their smoothies instead of isolated sweeteners like agave, maple syrup, or regular sugar.
Here is a delicious recipe I created:

Berry Delight Smoothie

1 Banana
1/4 cup organic strawberries (fresh or frozen)
1/4 cup organic blueberries (fresh or frozen)
1/4 organic raspberries (fresh or frozen)
3 pitted Deglett Noor dates or 2 pitted Medjool Dates
3 tbsp organic expeller pressed coconut oil
1/2 organic coconut milk cup (use Native Forest, a BPA brand)

I recommend purchasing strawberries and raspberries organic due to the high levels of pesticides used on them.

Add the ingredients to a blender with water and blend. Enjoy!
The recipe serves 1 to 2 people.

Note: To make the smoothies more "berry" and beneficial for the immune system, you can add 1 tablespoon of Elderberry powder. Elderberry is an berry which is beneficial in boosting the immune system and preventing colds and flus. Elderberry is also a great natural remedy for the cold or all flus. Elderberry is also rich in anti-oxidants and contain twice as many as blueberries.

Why Michelle Obama is More Likely to Die From Breast Cancer than Hilary Clinton

Race is always a hot topic here but people always seem to neglect discussing the topic of race and health. If it is discussed, it is always a matter of stating that Blacks or other minorities are not getting enough treatment and early detection particularly in the realm of cancer. It is true though, that Blacks do have higher rates of every other disease you can think of. And money does not fix this health epidemic amongst Blacks as we have seen rich Black celebrities such as Bernie Mac and Issac Hayes die from degenerative and preventable diseases. However Blacks and Whites do have different health concerns and challenges. It is not because Blacks are inferior or have bad genes. Blacks have different diets and a large percentage of Blacks are on the low end of the economic bracket and do not have access to healthy foods (That is not to excuse bad dietary habits by Blacks). Historically, Blacks have also been unable to receive treatments from the medical establishment and have even been subject to crimes like the Tuskegee Experiment. So as a health researcher while researching general topics on health and wellness, I definitely sought to know why Blacks have a myriad of health problems. One of the main reasons for poor Black health is a Vitamin D deficiency. One of the main reasons a Vitamin D deficiency is so common in Blacks is because Black skin absorbs more sunlight making more it more difficult to produce Vitamin D. Blacks have to spend more time in the sun in order to produce Vitamin D. The implication of Blacks, like Michelle Obama, not having adequate amounts of Vitamin D are severe. My video below explains those consequences as it pertain to Black women

Another consequence of having Vitamin D deficiency for Black women is that they are more likely to develop a deadly type of breast cancer. This is why I firmly know that Black health in America can be dramatically improved for FREE through obtaining Vitamin D. Vitamin D is important whether you are Black or White too. My recording will teach you how to adequately obtain Vitamin D for the prevention of disease and boost your overall welfare. You can order that here, How to Obtain Vitamin D.

I believe in keeping it real when it comes to health and we cannot act like race does not play when it comes to health. Blacks must also realize that the sick care system does not give a hoot about Black Americans and has traditionally been anti-Black. The existence of Black doctors means nothing. Black doctors operate in the same fraudulent system which has done nothing for Blacks and other ethnic groups for that matter. I say everyone avoid the sick care system (doctors, hospitals, etc) unless you have been shot, been stabbed or suffered some really severe incident or accident.
