Case Study: Candida, infections, immune issues



Case 1: Systemic candida
Female 40s: She suffered from systemic candida for a few years with occasional flare up when eating too much carbs or alcohols. She also developed occasional vaginal yeast infections and pain on the bladder. She took antifungal medications for several times. She followed healthy diet, but still she was not able to completely get rid of candida out of her system.

Treatment: She received a few acupuncture treatments and started colon cleansing. Together with some anti-microbial supplement, her symptoms continued improving.  


Case 2: Low immune system
Male 30s: He complained of weak immune system for over a year. He easily caught a cold and ended up with respiratory symptoms.

Treatment: He began weekly acupuncture treatment combined with prescription herbal medicine. Within a few months, his immune system was strong, so that he no longer got a cold easily during the winter.
