Anti-Fungal Diet to Help Cure a Yeast Infection

The Self-Healing Body

The human body is equipped with self-healing mechanisms that work in conjunction with nourishment, hydration, as well as energy use (exercise and sleep). If the body is poorly supplied these necessities, it will respond – over time – with poor maintenance and an overall degradation of the entire system. If it is adequately supplied, these same self-healing mechanisms are capable of killing cancer cells, fighting infectious diseases, even combating the aging process, and so much more.

How to Cure a Yeast Infection

Yeast Infections

With only 1,500 species identified, yeast – a single-celled microorganism – makes up just 1% of the fungi kingdom. It can be found in many ecosystems, including vegetation, soil, the aquatic (rivers, oceans, lakes, creeks, ponds), and, surprisingly to some, the bodies of both humans and animals.

Most are aware that yeast can be either beneficial or harmful to the health of its host. Beneficial yeasts, such as Brewer’s, Baker’s, and Torula, are often referred to as Nutritional Yeasts. Due to the presence of various vitamins, minerals, Beta Glucan polysaccharides, and Beta 1 3 Glucans, these beneficial yeasts generally enhance the functioning of the immune system, as well as aid in normalizing blood sugar levels. Harmful yeasts, however, such as candida, are pathogenic. This means that they cause disease.

How to Get Rid of Mold in Your AC Unit

Mold in the AC Unit

Mold can show up almost anywhere in the home, including your AC unit. Once it invades your ductwork, mold spores are more easily spread throughout the entire house, which could make people sick if left to grow and proliferate.

There are quite a few things that can cause mold to develop in a home. A leaking roof, broken or leaking pipes, high humidity and poorly ventilated bathrooms are just a few examples of conditions that can cause mold.

With air conditioners, condensation is a byproduct of daily operation. Air conditioners are built with proper condensation drainage. When the drainage system is overloaded or not functioning properly, your air conditioning unit itself could be the cause of mold developing in your system and the ducts.

5 Steps to Avoid Bathroom Condensation

Stop the Condensation

Condensation is an issue for every bathroom – it’s a humid environment where moisture is released into the air in an indoor environment by something as simple as taking a shower or a hot bath. Condensation forms when the hot steam meets cold air and surfaces, forming droplets on windows, mirrors and every hard surface. The hotter the water vapour, the more moisture the air can hold and the more condensation will be deposited on cold surfaces.

Pets and Mold

Mold-Inviting Scenarios in the Life and Home of a Pet Owner

While the most ideal locations for mold to grow are kitchens, bathrooms, and basements—as they generally provide mold spores daily access to a bountiful supply of decaying organic material (dirt, dust, sweat, food, urine, hair, body oils, etc.)—mold will grow wherever its needs are even remotely met.

With the potential of microscopic mold spores naturally teeming in the thousands (if not millions) inside and outside the home, it should come as no surprise that your chances—of acquiring mold growth at all—are incredibly high. In fact, it is a constant battle, especially in more humid climates or in homes that have moisture issues.

Even if a home does not suffer from moisture issues, the simple daily tasks performed as a pet owner could be inviting and maintaining mold growth. The purpose of this article is to reveal the mold-inviting scenarios you’re faced with as a pet owner.

It is common knowledge that mold grows most frequently in rooms that serve as a basis for water use. The laundry room and dirty clothes hampers, in fact, are the ideal locations for mold to grow, as they generally provide mold spores daily access to a bountiful supply of decaying organic material (dirt, dust, sweat, food, urine, hair, body oils, etc.) to feed on and, in many cases, moisture.

3 Symptoms of Mold in the Home

Signs of an Unhealthy Home

When it comes to mold, the most commonly discussed topics are moisture and the effects of mold on the health of the home’s residents. While moisture and health concerns are vital symptoms of mold that can’t be ignored, it is still important that the homeowner or renter be prepared to recognize the presence of mold long before excessive moisture and bad health set off alarms.
Think of your home like you would your own body. When you’re ill, your body displays symptoms that give clues as to what the root sickness is. Doctors can’t diagnose your illness, disease, syndrome, or disorder until they have considered all the symptoms and ruled out false causes. The same detective work should be done in relation to your home.
There are three symptoms—aside from moisture and health issues—that reveal the presence of mold in the home.

HVAC Systems, Mold, and Homeowner Responsibilities

A Lifeforce of the Home

Within the walls, flooring, and ceilings of your domain, the HVAC (heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning) system is busily catering to your specific comfort needs. Much like the circulatory or cardiovascular system of our bodies, the HVAC system regulates and monitors the ebb and flow of a home’s life sources: air and temperature.

A complete HVAC system is usually comprised of a “split system,” which consists of two separate devices: the “central cooling system” and the “central heating system.” In many cases, a home is equipped with only a central heating system, which could be due to the financial limitations of the original home owner, or because the climate in that specific area is generally cooler all year-round. In the case of a split system, however, both the cooling and the heating systems are “matched,” or paired. This means that they share the same ductwork and ventilation throughout the house and—depending on the type and configuration—both systems can actually work in sync with one another by combining specific processes, despite their seemingly contradictory functions.
