Fungus no more!

Yes, after nearly two years and hundreds of dollars spent on a vast array of topical treatments (some pictured below), as well as multiple changes in diet, I’ve finally resolved the fungal issue I wrote about in my book.

The whole ball of wax:

Balms lotions and creams supposed to heal

As I wrote in my book, Take It Upon Yourself to Live a Wholly Vibrant Life, I have been dealing with a fungal issue for about two years.

I tried one thing after another, including consuming only foods listed on a Candida diet plan, acupuncture, deep breathing, reflexology, acupressure, essential oils, meditation, detoxifying (discussed earlier here and on this post), and a plethora of topical remedies (not all pictured).

Eventually, the fungus had produced such a red, burning itch that I broke down and went to a medical doctor (whom I had not seen in 8 years). My doctor took one look (yet did NOT skin swab or test for anything other than order blood lab work), and said the fungus was entrenched. No kidding! I had been suffering greatly, so I knew it was bad. Hearing her say this though, I was really glad I came to see her before this turned into anything worse. She also explained why the rash would improve a bit, then get worse. I needed to soak all my clothes, towels, etc in a solution of half water and white vinegar to KILL the mold, so I wouldn’t reinfect myself! Huge lesson learned!

The medicine she prescribed me was strong. It’s only supposed to use it for a month or so. If it doesn’t clear the issue, one’s seemingly out of luck. I didn’t like using this cream either, as it comes with another whole set of side effects. Thankfully, I didn’t experience any of those effects and it provided some relief; I experienced about 60-70 percent relief from symptoms after a couple weeks on this):

Clotrimazole and Betamethasone Dipropionate Cream

I followed my doctor’s directions for the medication exactly. By the end of my third and last tube, I was only using a tiny amount once a week.

I had began brushing my teeth with Dirty Mouth toothpowder, but couldn’t imagine that it would have any connection with what would happen next. (Synchronicity seemed to bring three beneficial products to me all with days of each other!)

I had read about Dermamed Rescue Balm and decided to order a jar. I figured it was worth a try to see what it could do, based on all I had read. At the least, I thought it might promote the healing of my skin.

I had an appointment with Dr. Michele Munnich for Nutrition Response Testing, the day I ordered the DermaMed. I told her my pharma med was almost gone, but I still had the rash. She suggested that I take one or two of the Zymex capsules (which I had been taking orally for several months), and mix the contents with coconut oil or olive oil and apply to the rash at bedtime. I followed her advice and low and behold, the next day I had no more itch! None at all. I was stunned! It’s been over a month now, and no more red, burning itch! I am beyond thrilled!!

When my order of DermaMed arrived, I applied it once a day (after showering), to improve the condition of my skin. And my skin is back to normal! I couldn’t be happier!

I feel the Zymex capsule content applied directly on the rash (in a base of coconut oil) at night, followed by a thin layer of DermaMed in the morning was very helpful.

DermaMed is a wonderful healing balm:

If you can’t find DermaMed Rescue balm, try drinking 4 to 6 cups of Pau d’Arco tea a day. It has been a soothing and restorative drink for me, whenever the itch began again. Pau d’Arco has been used for centuries as an herbal medicine because the tree doesn’t grow fungus! It has been shown to help urinary tract infections, soothe ulcers, resolve fungal, Candida, or yeast infections. It’s great preventive strategy also, since it has been know to prevent many issues from colds to cancer. (Look it up on pubmed.) Pau d’Arco has been tested by the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture to be anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, anti-microbial, anti-tumorous, and anti-viral!

Another option is to use a mix of essential oils such as, tea tree (3 drops), spearmint (3 drops), rosemary (1 drop), and peppermint (1 drop) mixed with equal parts Emu oil, olive oil, or coconut oil. This mixture worked so well, except that mixing the oils was messy, and not everyone likes the smell of these oils. The user will also feel a warming or cooling sensation on the skin, which some are okay with, but not everyone likes.

MSM has also been reported to ease fungal and parasitic conditions and on reoccurrence I tried a lotion made with MSM, which I applied after applying essential oils. It helped ease the warm sensation of the oils, and helped me sleep without scratching.

Inguinal lymph nodes it seems, once infected or impacted by fungus, bacteria, yeast or such can be difficult to clear, and the stagnation in the lymph may cause the maddening groin itch.

If the fungus returns, you can order this amazing homeopathic remedy: EmuaidMax. It’s an absolutely indispensable healing balm that works incredibly fast! (I probably would have put it first on my list, but it’s expensive–and if you’re issue can be resolved with one of the less costly options, that’s aWEsOMe! But, if you’ve tried everything, or the issue reoccurs, this is the one you want. Ah, glorious relief!

I continue to help my intracellular health by taking ASEA Redox too, as it has improved my sleep; I get a much deeper and more restful sleep when I take my 4 ounces of ASEA daily.

We know the restorative effects sleep has on the body, mind, and spirit. ❤️🦋🌀

Have a similar issue?

Allopathic Medicine on the whole rarely seeks a root cause. So, you may have no clue as to what is causing a health issue; there are too many variables. Though you may not have had indicators of a serious health issue or event, keep on searching for relief. I’m not a doctor. I have been through many issues (acute and chronic) and have researched a ton and written it all down.

A dermatologist or other trusted medical doctor could probably tell you if the rash/hives is allergic reaction, parasites, mites, fungus, etc. Don’t spend money on their creams or lotions though, unless the itch is unbearable. Steroids and such can just prolong the time it can take to figure out the root cause—and they can mask symptoms or cause other side effects.

Our body is intricately connected. I learned the hard way that preventing tooth decay is so worth the time, energy, and focus. I had to eventually practice more self discipline to remineralize my teeth, which thankfully, also balanced my gut bacteria!

Disclaimer: Before starting any new health supplement (such as ASEA products), seek out the services of an integrative or functional medical doctor to get a baseline of your vital statistics, blood work, and so forth.

Many blessings to you all, in ALL ways.
