Natural Awakenings New York City


CANDIDIASIS: The Great Impersonator

From the Desk of Dr. Howard Robins at The Healing Center in New York City

The Problem
They come in each day all with different health complaints and suffering in their own special way. No two are exactly the same. Most have been suffering for years and have tried everything, almost everything, that is, to get well. While many treatments and medicines have offered hope and have helped, at least for a while, they finally fail to stop the never-ending discomfort, pain and suffering.

Each doctor has told them that they have this or that condition or disease. They show the entire range of classic symptoms of it, don’t they? Then why didn’t their treatments work? The answer is that the true underlying cause was missed or ignored. Ignored because it wasn’t recognized as the real “felon,” the real reason for their/your problem.

The Cause 
Since the first time you had even one dose of antibiotics as a child or eaten red meat or chicken that wasn’t organic (most contain traces or more of various antibiotics), your good, healthy bacteria (probiotics) in your intestine were killed along with the harmful bacteria that needed to be destroyed. This allowed yeast, the different types of candida (also known as monilia), to overgrow in your intestinal wall as well as bad bacteria to move in and inhabit your intestinal wall, continually secreting toxins into your system.

The Results
So, what real difference does this make? Well, after years of research, scientists have discovered that by allowing the yeast(s) to overgrow, your immune system and body become weakened. Weakened to different degrees and in different ways, as each of us is unique, causing a wide variety of symptoms often leading to a misdiagnosis. 

What’s worse is that while most doctors know the condition exists, they “don’t see the forest because there are too many trees in the way”! They either don’t believe or don’t recognize the relationship between your health problems and the yeast overgrowth. The symptoms, conditions, and illnesses are so varied that it’s hard to believe that this one cause could be the problem. Believe it or not, this is just a partial list of symptoms that have been associated with this horrible illness (found on numerous anti-candidiasis websites):

It’s hard to believe that this one problem can cause all these different health issues. Regardless, do you suffer from one or more of these symptoms or know someone who does? Please don’t give up hope (though you may already have), read on.

The Answer
Finally, the answer to this persistent health dilemma consists of a the necessary combination of three things: temporary dietary change (anti-candida diet); special probiotics (the kind that adheres to the intestinal wall); and most importantly, Intravenous Ozone Therapy. Without all three, failure to get well may be the result as it has with most people.

Dr. Howard Robins at 212-581-0101 considered the foremost clinical expert on the use of medical ozone in North America. He has performed more than 345,000 cutting-edge medical ozone therapies over the last 30 years. [email protected]
