How Do You Get Rid Of A Yeast Infection Under Your Breast?

How Do You Get Rid Of A Yeast Infection Under Your Breast?


How do I get rid of a yeast infection under
my breast? This is a question I’ve been asked a couple of times. Not so much as many of
the other ones, but it’s an important one to answer. First thing to determine is whether it is
a yeast infection or not, and sometimes a swab will do this. Sometimes a good visual
inspection will give you that idea, but generally in areas like the folds of the skin around
the belly or under the breast or between the buttocks or even around the thigh area, if
a person’s quite large, of course, this is going to be a perfect breeding ground for
Candida. You’ve got the darkness, the moisture, perspiration, all that in that area and Candida
is going to like to grow in that area. The most obvious thing to do is to if it’s
possible is to look at some kind of breast reduction or how we can stop this skin from
sort of like hanging together there creating that. Maybe a bra or some kind of a device,
but you’re going to spend regular attention to that area to help overcome it. This condition
needs to be treated both locally as well as systemically.
I’ve had many women from Australia, New Zealand; I’ve treated with this condition over the
past many years, and generally I find my satisfactory long-term resolution is weight loss. Weight
loss will help because it’s going to help the body generally strengthen the immune system,
increase digestive function, we can get the bowel back in order again, reduce the ability
of the body to grow Candida internally, and also help it, therefore, externally. And externally,
we apply things like calendula cream or tea tree oil. We have showers twice per day. We
can get a natural kind of a powder and put dry powder under the breast area there to
keep the moisture away from the region that’s causing it. I wouldn’t use fungal creams if
I were you. I’d probably use a tea tree oil cream, as you can get these kind of products
at a good health food shop, a good cream with tea tree oil.
So dryness, sunshine, these are enemies of Candida. Allowing sun exposure to that area.
Keeping the area dry. Maybe some form of barrier for a while. Weight loss. Local application.
Internal treatment. Internal treatment follow my Candida Crusher program. Go to yeastinfection.org.
Do my quiz on CandidaCrusher.com to determine if you’re mild, moderate or severe and then
definitely treat the outcome based on the quiz. The quiz is amazing. We spent a lot
of time and money on that quiz to get it perfect. It’s the best quiz online. So you’ll be able
to determine with a high degree of accuracy how bad this is affecting you internally as
well as around the breast region. So give those suggestions a go. Thanks for
tuning in.

What is HIV and AIDS? | Infectious diseases | NCLEX-RN | Khan Academy


– [Voiceover] What is
HIV, and what is AIDS? Well, let’s first look at HIV. HIV is a virus that
attacks our immune system, and if we expand this out, we can see that that’s reflected in its name: Human Immunodeficiency Virus. So this implies that it
does something to our immune system somehow, and we’ll actually explore that a little bit later on. And if we don’t treat HIV,
it’ll eventually cause AIDS in the infected person. Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome. So right away you already get a sense that HIV attacks your immune
system so destructively, that you end up acquiring
an immune deficiency system. It puts you into a state
of immune-system failure, so you end up not being able to fight off even the most basic infections. And this immune-less state,
is what we call AIDS. So let’s explore this a
little bit further now. Let’s actually use the help of a graph, this might be helpful. So here’s our graph, and
we’ll put time down here on our X-axis, and actually
just to make this extra useful, we’ll put weeks in this
beginning part here, and then we’ll transition
to years here, and you’ll see how this is relevant in
a few more minutes here so, on the Y-axis here, we’ll
put CD4 T-lymphocyte count. T-lymphocytes are a
really really important type of immune system cell. And CD4 just refers to a
type of protein that’s stuck through their cell membranes,
that’s kinda how we like to identify them, by this
protein on their membranes. And the reason they get a
special spot on an entire axis of our graph here is
because they’re super important in the progression from
HIV infection to AIDS. Because as you might have
suspected, it turns out that HIV preferentially
loves to infect these CD4 cells of our immune system. And why is this so bad? Well, these CD4 cells,
also called helper T cells, play a huge role in signalling
your other immune cells to come and destroy every
given infectious particle that our body discovers. Like maybe strep throat
bacteria, or flu viruses, or even HIV viruses, for that matter. So these CD4 cells are kinda central. They’re almost like little
amplifiers of our immune system. So because HIV loves to
infect and kill these cells, it completely disrupts how
our immune systems function, and renders it essentially useless. So let’s say you acquire HIV in your body, either in your bloodstream
or your tissues, maybe through unprotected
sex with an infected partner, that would be the most
common method of becoming infected with HIV, in adults at least. What happens? Well, the main thing is that
the virus really quickly gets into your white blood cells, so these T-helper cells, the
CD4 cells we’ve talked about. But also some other white blood cells, like your macrophages and so on. And from inside a white blood
cell, it can do two things. One, it can sorta hijack
your cell’s machinery, so it manages to insert
its genetic material into your own cell’s DNA. And from there it starts to
make lots and lots and lots of copies of itself, lots
of new HIV particles. Actually that’s really really important, so let’s put that on our
graph too, let’s say, “viral load” here on another Y-axis here. Viral load referring to the amount of HIV in your bloodstream. So we can see that after
our primary infection here, the viral load starts to increase. It’s hijacked our T helper cells, and now new HIV particles
are being churned out, and our viral load is
majorly on the upswing. And you’ll notice that the
viral load is starting to rise at around the two to three week mark, and that’s just ’cause it
takes a bit of time for the HIV virus production to start sort of ramping up within our bodies. And of course a major
concern here is well, the more HIV there is in your bloodstream, the more CD4 cells get
infected, get hijacked, right? But the biggest problem
here, thing number two here, is that HIV infection of your CD4 cells, triggers a self-destruct
sequence within these cells. So you end up losing these CD4 cells. And even worse, the
self-destruct sequence doesn’t just destroy the infected
cells, it even destroys nearby immune cells that
maybe have come into the area to try to help out. So I won’t go into the
mechanism in this video, but you do end up losing
lots more immune cells than just the infected
ones, and that’s part of why you see this massive dropoff
here, this line representing our CD4 T-cell numbers has this
really steep downward slope, we’re losing lots of T-cells. While at the same time our
HIV viral load is going up and causing more and more
infection of our cells. The other thing I wanna point
out here is you can see this massive rise in viral load
and this pretty massive drop in CD4 levels, and this
huge viral load means that this time period right,
early on in an infection, is when someone with HIV
has the highest risk of transmitting it to someone else. I guess one good thing
here is that eventually, maybe a month or so in,
your immune system gets somewhat of a handle on the virus, and it starts to make
anti-HIV antibodies, right? Those are just antibodies against HIV. So they start to fight off
the virus to some extent. And this is called seroconversion,
when you make antibodies to something, so now we’ve
seroconverted to HIV. So now the antibodies
get to work on helping to destroy the viral particles. And that’s why we see this decrease here in viral load in the bloodstream. Because our immune system
is starting to control the viral levels to some degree. And this also gives our CD4
cells a chance to recover, to some extent, because there’s less virus around to infect them. So you might be wondering, how
you’re gonna feel during all of this, with this massive
battle going on inside your body? Well, you’re gonna feel
sick, you’re probably gonna feel like you’re having the
worst flu you’ve ever had. So about here, about a month
or so in, at seroconversion, you start to fight the infection. And as a result, most
people get some serious flu-like symptoms, so things
like headache, and fever, and sore throat, muscle
pains, joint pains, some people get swollen glands, just sort of fatigue and feeling unwell. Some people get a rash, some people get some open sores in their mouth. These are some of the more common symptoms of an acute infection with HIV. And this flu-like illness
that people experience is referred to as Acute HIV Syndrome. And the reason for a lot of
these symptoms is because well, when immune system
cells get really active, or when they die off, both
of which are happening here of course, they tend
to release these little chemical signals that cause inflammation, sort of all throughout your
body, and so this is what underlies a lot of these symptoms here. So back to our graph,
the immune system can’t completely kill off the
HIV, even though we have antibodies now, right? And that’s because A, remember the rate of immune system killing is
roughly matching up with the rate of new viral
particles being produced. And B, because the virus has
sort of taken up residence in some really really hard-to-reach
reservoirs in our body. Like within the brain and
within our bone marrow, and within our genital tract. Because of these two
reasons, these curves tend to sort of stabilize at some
point, they reach a set point, where again, our immune
system is killing off HIV at a pretty similar rate to
which HIV is replicating. So the curves start to
come together a bit more and stabilize somewhat. So this period here is
thought of as the start of the second phase of HIV
infection, what’s called the latency period, or Chronic HIV. This acute infection back
here being phase one. So in this latency period, we
don’t tend to see any clinical signs of HIV illness, the
person is often asymptomatic. They’re still infectious, but
there are few or no symptoms during this phase, and without treatment, this phase will last on
average about 10 years. And I said that our curves
here stabilized, right? But it turns out that
HIV’s actually replicating, killing our immune cells
just a teensy little bit more than our CD4s are recovering. So over this long period
of time, phase two, eventually, again, without treatment, HIV will start to overwhelm
our immune system, and we’ll start to see symptoms again. So things like fever or muscle
pains or swollen glands, really similar to the
acute infection, and again, much for the same reasons as before. And many people at this
stage of the illness experience significant weight loss. HIV causes you to use
more energy than usual, and also prevents you
from absorbing nutrients from your food as well
as you normally would. So we often see some
significant weight loss for these and a few other reasons as well. Eventually, if our CD4 cells
get to a critically-low number, and result in our having no
functional immune system, that’s what AIDS is. Essentially a state of being
where we have no immune system. So at this point, this
is when certain bugs, bacteria and viruses that
would never stand a chance against even a
minimally-effective immune system, these things start to infect the person. And we refer to these
specific infections as AIDS-defining illnesses,
because we just know that if somebody has
one of these illnesses, they just cannot have a
functioning immune system, it just wouldn’t happen,
or at least it would be really really unusual. So there’s a high suspicion
of this person having AIDS and not just an HIV infection anymore if they have any of these
AIDS-defining illnesses. Two examples of
AIDS-defining illnesses are two fungal pneumonias, one
called pneumocystis pneumonia, and one called cryptococcal pneumonia. These are two common
AIDS-defining illnesses. And again, these aren’t the
types of infections that you get when your immune system
works even a little bit. So actually one of two
criteria has to be met before we can say someone has AIDS. Either they have to have
extremely low amounts of CD4 cells in their blood,
and to get a little bit technical here, it’s if they
have less than 200 CD4 cells per microliter of blood,
with the normal count, the normal CD4 count in
this amount of blood, it should be around
1000 to 1100 CD4 cells. Or, regardless of CD4 count, if they have any of the
AIDS-defining illnesses, like either of these, for example, then we can say that
they have developed AIDS. And so you might have suspected
this, but it’s actually the overwhelming impact,
and the complications of serious infections that you pick up because of the immune deficiency in AIDS that actually results in
the death of the person. So from HIV infection to
eventually an incredibly high amount of viral particles,
and low amount of CD4 cells in the bloodstream, to
development of a completely non-functional immune system in AIDS, very quickly leading to
overwhelming infection by essentially every infectious
pathogen from A to Z. And because of this, death results.

THE LEGEND OF THE TERMITE (ALAMAT NG ANAY) BOOK WITH ENGLISH/TAGALOG SUBTITLES

THE LEGEND OF THE TERMITE (ALAMAT NG ANAY) BOOK WITH ENGLISH/TAGALOG SUBTITLES


The Legend of the Termite
Story by Mikhail Jamisola Illustrated by Rowin Agarao (MUSIC) A very long time ago, every kingdom in Luzon
was successfully engaged in trade. Each kingdom had its own special product. One kingdom which has a vast mountain range
was ruled by Queen Ana. She was an excellent leader, and so her
subjects were dutiful followers as well. Queen Ana had only one desire. That was to make her
kingdom larger and more prosperous. “I shall become the happiest of queens if I can fulfill my dream,” she said to herself. Nature had blessed the mountain range ruled
by Queen Ana. Its forests were thick with large and towering
trees. Because the trees were in plenty, it became the commodity they traded with the other kingdoms. They exchanged the logs they obtained for
rice, vegetables, fruits, and fish from the neighboring kingdoms. “Let us try to do even better at cutting down
trees so that our kingdom will quickly prosper,” Queen Ana persuaded her subjects. Time flew by. The kingdoms of Luzon were beginning to
flourish. Trade prospered alongside it. The kingdoms near the sea needed plenty of
wood to build ships and other seafaring vessels. The kingdoms in the plains also needed wood
to build storehouses for their products. Queen Ana saw this was her chance to realize
her dream. Queen Ana’s kingdom prospered. All of the kingdoms depended on her because she was the only one who possessed mountains and forests. Though already prosperous, Queen Ana still
was not satisfied. She gave orders to all of her subjects. “Cut down every tree in the forest. We shall use them to trade with the other
kingdoms,” she said. Queen Ana had become too ambitious. She was very eager to enlarge
and extend her kingdom. “When all the trees in the forest are cut
down, I shall be the most prosperous of all!” she
said. Contrary to what she believed, the other kingdoms
did not need any wood. “Queen Ana, we have bartered for too many
logs already. We do not need them anymore,” one king said. Every tree in Queen Ana’s kingdom had already
been cut down. They were likewise unable to trade them with
the other kingdoms. Because her kingdom was so large, all of the
fish, rice, and vegetables that had been bartered in exchange for their
logs had already been consumed. A famine fell upon the kingdom of Queen Ana. The people had nothing to eat. Eventually, they just chose to eat the chopped-up
logs rather than die of hunger. Meanwhile, Mother Nature was angered when
she saw that the mountains had been denuded of its trees. “Who did this?” she asked. When MOther Nature learned that Queen Ana
and her followers had cut down the trees, she punished them. She shrank Queen Ana’s kingdom and turned
them into insects resembling ants. She restored the denuded mountains in order
to prevent any tragedies that could arise from the disappearance of the trees. Time went by, and the wood-eating ants came
to be called “anay” (termite). Just like Queen Ana, they keep extending their
territory, which sometimes even reached our homes.

Getting the Most Out of Termite Inspection Reports πŸ“‘ Using Termite Reports to Scope & Plan Repairs


Industry best practices dictate that HOAs
undergo yearly termite inspections and treatments to protect buildings from termites and prevent
costly damages caused by termites and other wood destroying organisms. (see termite control in HOAs) Each year your termite control expert would
provide an inspection report for each building, at the very least, in the HOA. The report would detail findings of wood destroying
organisms that include drywood and subterranean termites as well as any damage that has been
caused by the infestations. Annual termite inspection and treatment services
are most valuable to HOAs when they include inspections and treatments of the majority
of unit interiors. (see best participation in TCPs) Savvy HOA community managers and HOA board
members will have usually prearranged a price for necessary termite treatments before the
project begins. This ensures there are no surprise expenses
related to the inspections and local treatments in the community. (See termite treatment types) Upon completion
of the entire inspection and treatment project, the only remaining issue to address would
be the structural damage found at the time of inspection. Proper planning and prioritizing is key to
maximizing productivity and ROI when the time comes to perform major wood repairs in your
HOA. Don’t treat the termite inspection reports
you received merely as a receipt of inspections done and infestations treated. Your inspection reports act like an MRI of
the buildings in your HOA. Provided by the right vendor, termite inspection
reports can give enough detail to be the roadmap you need to adequately prepare for performing
repairs in your community. Your termite control professional should provide
you with termite inspection reports promptly and with enough details that the reports themselves
can be converted into a scope of work from which you can acquire competitive bids. Details of the damage found should include:
Where the Damage is Located Lumber Type Damaged
Measurements and Dimensions of Damage Specific Recommended Action (Repairing Existing
Wood or Replacing with new Wood) Cost to Perform Recommended Work Know before you hire a termite control company
how much detail they will provide in their reports. You are entitled to receive as much information
as possible from inspections performed in the community. Would you be OK with a doctor that refuses
to share x-ray and MRI information that can help prevent major problems in the future? Here are examples of differing levels of detail
that may be provided to an HOA by their termite control company. Very Poor: “Finding: Structural Damage Caused
By Termite/ Wood Rot. Recommendation: Remediate Damage” Poor:”Finding: Fascia and Belly-band Damage
Caused By Termite/ Wood Rot. Recommendation: Remediate Damage” Average: “Finding: Fascia 10 ft and Belly-band
18 ft Damage Caused By Termite/ Wood Rot. Recommendation: Remediate Damage” Better: “Finding: Fascia 10 ft and Belly-band
18 ft Damage Caused By Termite/ Wood Rot. Recommendation: Repair and Replace Fascia. Patch Belly-band” Best: “Finding: Fascia above Unit 3 (10 ft)
and Belly-band adjacent Unit 5 (18 ft) Damage Caused By Termite/ Wood Rot. Recommendation: Repair and Replace Fascia
($X). Patch Belly-band ($Y)” Notice the difference in detail at each level. As a manager or volunteer community leader,
it is imperative that purchasing decisions be made based on complete and total information
and zero ambiguity. Notice that the average vendor provides no
information about what their recommended course of action is. Hiring someone with the vague promise that
they will “just fix it” is not enough to meet fiduciary duty. Accurate Termite and Pest Control provides
top-level details in their inspection reports and findings. For years, Accurate Termite and Pest Control
has been a leader in the level of detail provided to HOAs. Accurate remains one of the few companies
who provides an already prepared and detailed scope of work from which a community can acquire
apples-to-apples bids for wood repairs ( see apples to apples bid comparisons). Termite inspection reports are an essential
asset that come as part of the purchase of a yearly termite control program. Be sure to set your community up to maximize
ROI of your annual termite control program by optimizing the usability of the termite
inspection reports you will receive. We are committed to being the number one provider
of convenient and dependable pest control services, so you can Enjoy Home. Call or click for a free consultation. You can reach us at 1 (844) GOT-ANTS.

I imagine I imagine I imagine I imagine a Texas Where HIV is rare And every person will have access To high quality prevention Care and treatment No matter their age Race Ethnicity Sexual orientation Gender identity Or socio-economic status We will end the HIV epidemic in Texas. We have a unique window of opportunity right now. We have the tools. We have the people. We have strong community partnerships. And we have game-changing advances in medical science. Now, we’re at a point in the movement where we can actually talk about someone’s HIV status and how their education level, their socio-economic status, their income level, how all of those play a role in someone’s HIV status. We have a plan that is by community and for community. We started with a hundred big ideas and these brought us all together and allowed us to move beyond those historical restrictions to really tackle the big issues. Sitting at the table, we emulate community. It allows us to be able to use this plan for active movement because it is a diverse plan to hit every vulnerable population. Creating Achieving Together was very inclusive. It gave us the opportunity of black and brown voices actually being heard. Most profound is knowing that this plan will impact lives for years to come lives of people who will be moving to Texas, of babies who are not yet born. This plan will ensure that they will live in a world that is free from new HIV diagnoses. We forget that the first word in HIV is “human” and this is a human issue. Everyone has a part to play in this movement. We can do this if we work together and keep our minds on the goal. Join us In ending the epidemic of HIV.

Insect Extinction – Behind the News

Insect Extinction – Behind the News


They are sometimes seen
as creepy… ..and they’re often crawly… ..or jumpy… ..or wriggly… ..or fly…y? Actually, there are lots of
different ways to describe insects because there are 30 million
different insect species in the world and they’re just the ones
we know about. In fact, if you put
all the insects together into one big, creepy, crawly,
wriggling mass, they’d outweigh all of humanity at least 17 times over. Now, hearing all that, who could blame you for thinking,
“Hey, insects are doing just fine.” But scientists say
that’s not the case. They are actually disappearing
at a worrying rate. A new study has found
that over the past decade the world’s insect populations
have reduced by 41%. That includes around 46%
of bee populations, 49% of beetles, 50% of crickets and grasshoppers and 53% of butterflies and moths. So, why are some insects dying out? Well, the finger is pointing
mostly towards us humans. Scientists say
habitat loss from deforestation, pollution and pesticides
and climate change are some of the biggest factors. The study predicted
a pretty sad future too where more than 40% of all
insect species could go extinct over the next few decades. Hey, Dan. How are you doing, Amelia?
Great to see you. Great to see you. This is amazing.
Yeah, it’s a fantastic place. Well, I think we should get cracking
and go and catch some bugs. I brought you along a net. Awesome! Let’s do it!
Yeah. Ben is a entomologist. That’s a scientist
that studies insects. So, I’ve always loved bugs. Ever since I was a pup, all I ever
wanted to be is a bug scientist. So, check this out, Amelia. I’ve caught a nice little fly
in the grass here. Oh, wow! He says even the tiniest,
most irritating insects are more important than they appear. They pollinate plants, they help to recycle material
in the environment, like plant material
but also animal material. They also play important roles
in food webs because, not only do they consume
things like plants, they are actually food sources for animals further up
the food chain. Ben, what would the world be
like without insects? I think we wouldn’t have
a world without insects. Once we remove that chain
from this kind of food web, everything collapses around it. We would pretty much have waste
piling up everywhere, and this is animal waste
and plant waste. We wouldn’t have any food to eat.
Whoa! So, it’s a pretty scary idea to think about
a world without insects. Ben says that’s why
it’s so important to take care of our environment and to keep a close eye
on how insects are going. Hey, I’ve got something! Let’s have a look. Oh, so this is a male velvet ant. Oh, look at that! This is a really good catch. So, what can I do and what can the kids of Australia
do to help insects? Some easy things you can do
around the home is reduce your reliance
on insecticides, spraying them
in and around the house. And as far as habitat loss,
to actually provide… By planting native plants
in your backyard which provide food sources
but also kind of habitat. While we go work on that, scientists like Ben
will keep spreading the word that without insects both pretty… Aww! ..and creepy… Ew! ..our world just
wouldn’t be the same.

This Stick Insect Came Back from Extinction

This Stick Insect Came Back from Extinction


(upbeat music) – [Narrator] This is the Lord
Howe Island stick insect, and this species did the impossible, they came back from extinction. The Lord Howe Island stick insect is the largest flightless stick insect, and can grow up to four inches in length. That’s almost the length
of an adult human’s hand. It is affectionately
nicknamed the tree lobster, the land lobster, and
even the walking sausage. Lord Howe Island stick insects were once so common on Lord Howe Island that they were used as bait by fishermen. Then a British supply ship
crashed on the island in 1918, accidentally introducing
rats who ate the insects. By 1960, they were declared extinct. Then in 2001, Australian
scientists discovered a tiny population hidden on a
small volcanic island nearby. Thanks to a breeding
program at Melbourne Zoo, they have been able to save
and repopulate this species. This is the Lord Howe Island stick insect. (upbeat music) (tone sounds)

Kidney infection – Most Common Signs and Symptoms of kidney infection


Symptoms of kidney infection:
Kidney infections most often result from Urinary tract infections (UTIs) can lead to kidney
infection. Kidney infections can be sudden or chronic. It requires prompt medical attention. If not treated properly, a kidney infection
can permanently damage your kidneys or the bacteria can spread to your bloodstream and
cause a life-threatening infection. The medical term for a kidney infection is
pyelonephritis. Infection of the kidney is very common, especially
in young females. There are some common symptoms of kidney infection
that enables you to avoid further complications. Fever:
With any infection, a fever can occur with temperatures soaring above 100-degrees Fahrenheit,
accompanied by the normal chills—so grab a blanket and warm up. Kidney Pain:
A kidney infection may affect one or both kidneys at a time. Pain occurs on the same side of the body as
the infected kidney. The pain location with a kidney infection
includes the side of the body or the lower back on one or both sides of the spine. A woman may also experience pain in the abdomen
or the groin. Urinary Urgency:
If your kidney infection worsens, and spreads to the urethra, you will often feel the constant
and sudden urge to urinate, even if you just emptied your bladder. You may feel like you can’t quite empty
your bladder, like there is fluid remaining, even right after using the washroom. Blood in urine:
One of common symptom of kidney infection is blood or dark red urine which may be painless. So if you find dark urine make a quick appointment
with your doctor for treatment. Smelling urine:
The presence of bacteria in the urine, such as with a urinary tract infection, can affect
the appearance and smell of urine. Otherwise the consumption of certain foods
and taking some medications may be causes for changes in the odor of urine. Nausea, vomiting:
Poor appetite and fatigue are very common gastrointestinal symptoms among renal or kidney
infection patients. Sometimes the reactions of nausea and vomiting
will be very strong that patients can not even take oral medicines. When to see a doctor:
Make an appointment with your doctor if you have some signs or symptoms. If you’re being treated for a urinary tract
infection but your signs and symptoms aren’t improving, make an appointment. Severe kidney infection can lead to life-threatening
complications. Seek immediate medical attention if you have
kidney infection combined with all above symptoms. Thanks for watching and Stay Healthy.
