Its been a long time since I have sent out a Newsletter but what I have recently learned just has to be shared with all of you. I discovered what is covered below about a month ago, then I went on vacation for 2 weeks, and now I'm back and wanted to share. I was looking for an answer for Tami's migraines when somehow I got off on another track and there it was looking me right square in the face! I can't believe I missed this!!! But I suppose its better late than never right?
Understanding the Structure of Fungi, Candida, and Yeast
We must understand the structure of fungi, candida, and yeast in order to successfully treat the condition. It truly is its own life form being part vegetable, animal, and bacterial in nature. It is this ability to adapt and change form, or shape shift, that causes it to be so hard to eradicate from the human body. Once we understand its composition then we can successfully treat it by natural methods that it has no resistance to without damaging the body.
The Structure of Fungi
Fungi belong to the group of organisms of eukaryotes which are organisms with complex cells in which the cell has a nucleus. Animals and plants share this center nucleus among their cell types, bacteria do not.
The cellular wall of fungi is composed of chitin which itself is composed of cellulose and hemicellulose. This is vegetable in nature and what gives the cell its rigidity. It is the same composition of vegetables and what causes them to stand up and grow reaching for the sunlight. It is composed of one cell thick filaments that are often called hyphae or are very similar to roots of plants since fungi feed from these hyphae. These roots can puncture intestinal walls and organs in the human body creating leaky gut syndrome and other negative effects.
Inside of the cellular wall is a membrane composed of protein and fats, also known as a lipoprotein, which is the common cellular structure of animal and human cells. In the center is a nucleus and together with the lipoprotein membrane beneath the vegetable cell wall, has enabled fungi to be classified as an animal even though they reproduce asexually in many cases through the production of spores. They can also mate with other fungi when two mycelial hyphae, or sporangia, meet, which can produce two multinucleate ball shaped cells that join together to form a new nuclei. Asexual division is very much like bacteria which simply split and each cell contains the same set of chromosomes although bacteria have no nucleus.
Fungi feed thru the hyphae they produce by releasing exoenzymes into the surrounding substrate they are attached to. These enzymes act like digestive enzymes in animals; but they digest the substrate from the outside of the fungi which then absorbs the broken down nutrient molecules through the cells. All fungi are decomposers with some species growing on dead organisms while some grow on, or within, living organisms.
Candida reproduce sexually since the nucleus has two copies of the chromosones to create two separate cells thru the sporangia when a male a female meet. If you could call it male and female, it really isn't, its more like two cells splitting themselves to join and create a new cell.
Candida grows within the human body and in 80% of the population causes no problems. Due to various environmental factors(see Cause) it switches to an invasive multicellular form from a unicellular or yeast form.
One structure of invasive candida grows as a smooth white colony, and one grows as a rod like flat gray colony. This can be the same species of candida and it can switch between the phases as a method of adaption. Another strain of candida known to undergo switching or as I like to say, shape shifting, produces seven different types of colonies. This switching ability is reversible and is inherited from one generation to the other. Research has also shown that structural chromosome rearrangements are a way to maintain genetic diversity and is an adaptation strategy of this fungus.
Yeast is the unicellular structure of candida albicans before its becomes multicellular and there have been over 1000 species classified. Yeast can be either anaerobic or aerobic and in the absence of oxygen they produce their energy by converting sugars into carbon dioxide and ethanol. They can reproduce asexually or sexually and during asexual reproduction the cell divides as a new bud to produce a new yeast cell.
Fungi are pretty fascinating when you think about it. Here we have a life form that is vegetable, animal, and bacterial in nature. The cell wall is composed of plant material, the membrane and nucleus are proteins and fats like an animal, and it produces like a bacteria in many cases asexually while carrying only one set of chromosomes. It clones itself, and has the ability to shape shift and take 7 different forms while rearranging chromosomes as an adaptive strategy to insure survival. No wonder it is so hard to get rid of!
So How Do We Get Rid of Fungi, Candida, and Yeast
Since fungi are decomposers the common speculation that it eats only sugar is a misnomer in my honest opinion. Yeast eats sugar and produces ethanol and carbon dioxide, yeast is the unicellular form. Candida is the multicellular form that sends out hyphae which feed by releasing exoenzymes into what ever it is attached to, or comes in contact with. This external digestion allows candida to absorb the nutrients thru the hyphae. Therefore, everything is a possible food source but especially the digestive waste found in the colon. Generally the high acidic environment of the stomach and small intestine will not allow candida to live so it is found in the large intestine mostly. Some kind of colon cleansing product is in order so a person stays regular and deprives it of its food source. It also does make sense to avoid sugar so the unicellular yeast does not become multicellular candida.
The cell wall of the fungi must be broken down to expose the soft lipoprotein membrane to destruction. Since the cell wall is composed of cellulose and hemicellulose, if we introduce enzymes that specifically eat these substances we can break thru the cell wall.
Once the lipoprotein membrane is exposed we can use enzymes that digest proteins and fats along with good bacteria to attack the membrane. Good bacteria will also target the nucleus of the cell for destruction after we get thru the membrane.
If we boost or stimulate immune system function, raise antioxidant levels in the intestine, generally provide the body with good nutrition. The immune system should also come into play and the macrophages can begin to clean up the mess as they help destroy the fungi. IgA levels can also be increased through supplementation to increase protection and heal the intestinal walls, and other mucous linings of the body.
In cases of chronic vaginal infections the hormones have to be balanced since the yeast becomes hormone dependent as evidenced by the reoccurrence in particular times of the menstrual cycle.
High cholesterol levels, plaque, scar tissue as in Fibromyalgia, etc, that are possibly created by the fungi, can be resolved with another special enzyme designed to digest these substances from within the body.
Does any of this make sense to you?
The page is up on the website already off of the treatment page. The updated treatment system will go up this afternoon.
Feedback anyone?? I would love to hear your thoughts since many of you have done your research and have tried many things before coming to my website. I would value your opinions if you have one, whether its good, or bad.
One another note I never thought I would see this happen in the US.
Its about time they pulled their heads out and get this carcinogen out of the water supply! Lets hope Congress listens and moves quickly to make it happen. Please consider signing the petition located at the bottom of the article. Thank You
I've checked the following article on Snopes and it appears to be true. The link is http://www.snopes.com/medical/disease/stroke.asp
A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours he can totally reverse the effects of a stroke...totally. He said the trick was getting a stroke recognized, diagnosed and getting to the patient within 3 hours which is tough.
RECOGNIZING A STROKE - A true story
Susie is recouping at an incredible pace for someone with a massive stroke all because Sherry saw Susie stumble - - that is the key that isn't mentioned below -and then she asked Susie the 3 questions. So simple - - this literally saved Susie's life - - Suzie failed all three so then 9-1-1 was called. Even though she had normal blood pressure readings and did not appear to be a stroke as she could converse to some extent with the Paramedics they took her to the hospital right away. Thank God for the sense to remember the "3" steps. Read and Learn! Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately,the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim may suffer brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke. Now doctors say a bystander can
recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions:
1. *Ask the individual to SMILE.
2. *Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.
3. *Ask the person to SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE
(Coherently) (ie . It is sunny out today)
If he or she has trouble with any of these tasks, call 9-1-1 immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher. After discovering that a group of non-medical volunteers could
identify facial weakness, arm weakness and speech problems, researchers urged the general public to learn the three questions. They presented their conclusions at the American Stroke Association's annual meeting last February. Widespread use of this test could result in prompt diagnosis and treatment of the stroke and prevent brain damage.
BE A FRIEND AND SHARE THIS ARTICLE WITH AS MANY FRIENDS AS POSSIBLE, it could save their lives.
Well, that is it for now. I Wish you and yours a Fantastic weekend!
