"Then the infections started.At first it was sinus infections which progressed into bladder and kidney infections. Still later, it was vaginal infections. I was on antibiotics for almost a year solid. Besides bacterial infections, I now had to contend with yeast infections. It was a constant problem. My doctor did not seem to be alarmed. I was alarmed, however. It seemed that every time I ate something sweet, I would get an infection which seemed to take turns popping out in different organs. I wore an IUD. If my memory serves me right, it was called a Lippy's Loop and made out of copper."

"In children, spinal infections usually follow respiratory tract infections. In adults, spinal infections may follow kidney or urinary tract infections, infections can also occur after spinal surgery. Figure 2-11 Inflammatory spine pain: rheumatoid arthritis (left) and ankylosing spondylitis (right) Pain From Neoplasm (Tumor) Abnormal tumors or growths-cancerous or noncancerous—can involve your spine and any of its components and cause pain. These growths can originate in your spine or spread to your spine from a cancerous tumor elsewhere in your body."

"On the other hand, infections and other toxic insults could breach the placenta of only one twin in a DC pair, leaving the cotwin unaffected.1 "MC twins," they concluded, "are likely to be mutually affected by such insults as bloodborne infections, while DC twins ?with their separate fetal circulations ?cannot share infections through an exchange of blood."2 According to another group of investigators, The importance of the human placenta with regard to the prenatal environment, especially with twins, is obvious."

"Recurrent infections of any kind are usually an indication of this process. The infections must be treated "medically," but they will continue to recur if they are not treated psychologically as well. It is highly significant that many of the people suffering from the pain of TMS who have participated in our therapeutic program have reported the disappearance of allergies or frequent infections simultaneously with the cessation of pain. Most people with TMS have a history of one or more of these autonomic or immune system conditions."

"What about people who die from infections they get in hospitals," asked Fran. Back and forth I traveled again to the library, examining 1999 statistics. I learned that so-called nosocomial (hospital acquired) infections afflict about 6% of all hospital admissions, costing an additional $4.5 billion per year in health care expenses, and causing 88,000 deaths—the sixth leading cause of deaths, ahead of diabetes which killed 68,000."

"Candida vaginal, or yeast, infections are a common problem for women with diabetes, and in a small study, seven diabetes patients with chronic Candida vaginitis were randomly assigned to consume 6 ounces of aspartame-sweetened yogurt per day (with or without active cultures like lactobacillus). Even though most of the women had poor glycemic control throughout the study, the vaginal pH (acid level) of the group eating yogurt with active cultures decreased from 6.0 (normal pH is 4.0 to 4.5) to 4.0 and reported a decrease in yeast infections. The other group remained at the pH of 6.0."

"Research has linked early-childhood infections to various forms of damage, including chronic inflammation, that may contribute to aging and mortality. Although causal links between the acute illnesses earlier in life and aging have not been well established, it is clear that bacteria, viruses, parasites, and other infectious agents can impair the neurodevel-opment of children."

"We know that it is absolutely critical to have normal vitamin D levels during pregnancy and early childhood to prevent infections, osteoporosis, autoimmune diseases, and cancer. If this is the only message you embrace from The Vitamin D Cure, you will have changed the health of your family for generations to come. JENNIFER'S LEG PAIN AND POOR SLEEP Jennifer was four when her parents first brought her to the Arthritis Institute; her family doctor wanted us to investigate the severe pain in her legs, especially the right knee."

"Other causes of oxidative damage include external events such as radiation, air pollution, alcohol ingestion, heavy metal toxicity, use of certain drugs, infections, and even strenuous exercise. While we cannot see the effects of free-radical damage (oxidative stress) in our bodies, we are all familiar with common examples of oxidation in the world around us. The browning of a freshly cut apple or the rusting of metal are examples of oxidation that we see every day. Oxidation results from the breakdown of oxygen molecules as they combine with other molecules in our bodies."

"Elevated temperatures may increase the number and distribution of insects such as mosquitoes that carry diseases like malaria; may promote bacterial growth leading to greater risk of food poisoning and diarrheal disease; and may warm waters and promote flooding, amplifying the risk of waterborne infections such as cholera. Moreover, aging persons are disproportionately affected by drastic changes in temperature, as has been evidenced by high mortality rates during severe heat waves in several countries."

"These molecules are produced in the body by natural biological processes, and can be accelerated by external agents such as infections, tobacco smoke, toxins, herbicides, radiation from the sun, or pollutants. Free radicals can damage proteins by altering their chemical structure and DNA and potentially causing mutations. Essentially, when molecules split as a result of bodily metabolism—a natural process by which chemicals in our body are created and destroyed?free radicals are born and react quickly with other nearby compounds to try to regain stability."

"There emerges an obvious need to protect against early-childhood infections in our own lives, with children and grandchildren, and in the developed and developing world. This means not only increasing efforts to fight infectious diseases, but also redoubling efforts to combat famine, because infection and malnutrition are part of a vicious circle in which infection can precipitate malnutrition by affecting the absorption of nutrients and the depletion of nutrients can cause further infection."

"Such oxidation can be the result of the body's normal metabolism of the foods we eat, or it can occur in the body as a result of external forces, such as radiation, air pollution, alcohol or heavy-metal intoxication, use of pharmaceutical and over-the-counter drugs, infections, or even strenuous exercise. Free radicals do damage by attacking cellular mechanisms. Because these bombarding molecules have unpaired electrons, they collide like unguided missiles, damaging cells and cellular components, including the DNA."

"Susceptibility to chronic or recurrent infections such as tuberculosis, hepatitis C, HIV, and even influenza all have ties to D- deficiency. It's smart to simplify your life by giving your immune system a big boost via the Vitamin D Cure. Lowering Your Risk The recommendations in the Vitamin D Cure are estimated to lower your risk of autoimmune diseases by 50 to 90 percent depending on how early in childhood normalization of vitamin D and lifestyle changes occur. The earlier in pregnancy the changes occur, the lower the risk of autoimmunity for that new life."
- James Dowd and Diane Stafford, The Vitamin D Cure (Get the book.)

"Vitamin D helps you fight infections and improves the effectiveness of vaccines. Without enough vitamin D, your risk of autoimmune diseases may increase by as much as 300 percent. The Sun and Vitamin D Most people mistakenly think that they get enough vitamin D from casual sun exposure or diet. Unfortunately, this is not true. People in today's urban digital society rarely get enough sun exposure to fill their vitamin D requirement, and nondietary sources must meet about 90 percent of your daily D needs."

- James Dowd and Diane Stafford, The Vitamin D Cure (Get the book.)

"I rarely get a cold and use echinacea and golden seal, vitamin C, and coenzyme Q10 to prevent these infections. I traded negative, toxic people for an interesting, ever-learning life without obstacles. TOM Since I've become conscious of the benefit of organic foods, getting out into the sunlight, using prayer and thinking positively, my life has improved. I am a more confident, stronger man. EDUARDO I cannot afford all the required supplements, yet even so I am vigilant about my organic food intake. I juice organic fruits and vegetables."

"This is in contrast to Type-2 diabetes, which is slow to develop with many of the same symptoms, but with hard-to-heal infections, blurred vision, itchy skin, Candida, and the mind not working so clearly. Cases of Type-1 can arise from exposure to viruses that have been documented, including measles, mumps, infectious mononucleosis, infectious hepatitis, Coxsackie virus, and cytomegalovirus. These viruses cause an immune inflammation response that destroys the beta cells of the pancreas in an infant."

"Exposure to virus infections in utero or during childhood may initiate beta cell damage.69 Rubella and chickenpox didn't seem to make any significant difference.70 Some research suggests that routine vaccinations may be linked with inflammation of the beta cells of the pancreas, but it isn't enough data for us to make a definitive statement. There is a significant correlation between antibodies to cow's milk protein, particularly to bovine serum albumin, in the onset of IDDM."

"We are well aware of the complications and associated conditions: cardiovascular disease (the cause of 80 percent of deaths in people with diabetes),2 Syndrome X, hypertension, obesity, impotence, nephropathy (kidney disease), retinopathy (eye disease), neuropathy (nerve disease), infections, liver damage, gallstones, stroke, chronic pain, depression, and Candida. For the majority of these health challenges, the underlying cause, and reversing mechanism, is found in diet and lifestyle."

"During your adulthood, D beefs up your ability to ward off infections by enhancing your production of antimicrobial proteins (especially in D-cells). Vitamin D acts as your immune system's noise filter. It filters out the steady stream of low-volume noises in familiar patterns and brands that as background noise. Conversely, it pays close attention to loud, alarming noises and triggers a startle or protective response. Normal vitamin D levels help to keep the filter above background levels and yet sensitive enough to make sure that alarming noises set off protective responses."

"Due in part to the permeability of the synovial membrane, which is the layer of cells and connective tissue that encloses a freely movable joint and secretes the lubricating synovial fluid, many organisms can infect the joints, such as bacteria, viruses, infections from other areas of the body, chemicals, cellular waste, and even digestive toxins. Once inside the synovial fluid, these foreign invaders can cause joint pain, inflammation, and stiffness, otherwise known as arthritis."

"Both had suddenly developed ferocious lung infections. Doctors gave them vancomycin, an extremely powerful antibiotic that is considered a medicine of last resort. But the infection had continued to eat away their lungs. Soon cases of community-acquired MRSA—that is, one in which a person had been infected with the germ somewhere outside the hospital? were surfacing all over the country. The superbug had moved into homes, locker rooms, gyms, day care centers, or just about anywhere bacteria grow. As the drug-resistant pathogen spread, it attacked both the weak and the strong."

"Many cancer patients beat back their disease with the cancer drugs only to die from infections. To try to help them, some doctors prescribed antifungal medicines like Diflucan with the hope they would stop microscopic bugs with names like Candida and Aspergillus from gaining a deadly hold on their weakened bodies. The goal of Dr. Peter C. Gotzsche and Dr. Helle Krogh Johansen was to perform a meta-analysis, a study in which statistical methods are used to combine the results of independent but similar trials of a drug."

"The children had developed empyema, a condition in which the lungs become surrounded by cupfuls of fluid, after their infections spread. The three appeared to get better after three to five days of Rocephin, Dr. Grose said, only to relapse a week or two later, developing fevers and suffering as their lungs were choked again by the infected pus. The deaths and serious illnesses that holiday season were alarming evidence of another consequence of the drug companies' potent marketing campaigns."

"It is also known to improve circulation, aiding varicose veins, and is useful in any number of infections whether they be bacterial, viral, or fungal. Calendula has a particular attraction to the female reproductive system and can regulate menstruation, relieve menopausal symptoms, relieve uterine congestion, and reduce cysts and fibroid tumors as well as relieve menstrual cramps. In this way, the heart and spirit of Calendula complement each other. I work with the spirit of Calendula to clear any blockage or congestion in the second chakra, which is where sexual issues present themselves."

"Blood sugar problems (both hypoglycemia and adult-onset diabetes) are common in those with a fatty liver; so are depression, brain fog, indigestion, constipation, bloating, recurrent infections, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, and more. Since the liver is our central line of defense against toxins, when it is overworked, an extra load is placed upon our other organs of detoxification. That extra load is passed from one organ system to another until either detoxification occurs, enabling the body to regain balance, or degeneration sets in."
