I have on many occasions witnessed that when a patient who had a chronic yeast infection moved from one house to another, or changed the country they lived in that their health improved, and in some cases the chronic yeast infection even went away entirely without any further intervention. This is a true fact, and something that used to really surprise me many years ago.
But why did this happen, and why did it take a move to bring about such a change in their health? My experience has led me to believe that it was because the person left some kind of stress behind; like work stress, a relationship stress, maybe their son, daughter, ex-partner, mother in law, etc. Maybe it was a change in diet; they were deficient in a mineral or vitamin or allergic to a certain food, or perhaps a change in the air temperature or humidity.
An improvement in health can come about for many reasons, and often a change in the person’s outlook by changing their residence, their occupation or their key personal relationships will bring about an improved state of health. Dr. Edward Bach (Bach Flower Essences) was a doctor many years ahead of his time, he gave a public lecture in London in the 1920’s about the emotional causes of ill health and was very much scorned by the medical establishment who thought he was a fool, after all, how could emotions be a causative factor in illness, when any self-respecting doctor knew in the 20’s knew that there was only one cause, and it was those nasty germs.
The upside about cleansing your body is that you will feel a lot better once this dust has finally settled, much better in fact than you have in fact for many years.
If you want a room in your house to be really clean and one that stays clean, you will need to clean it regularly and thoroughly, and if you want your entire house to sparkle from top to bottom then you will need to do some basic housekeeping every single day to ensure that not only the dirt doesn’t build up, but that cleaning it eventually doesn’t become an impossible task.
Small cleaning tasks performed regularly make a lot of sense, otherwise through procrastination a major clean up becomes overwhelming to the point that it is simply put in the too hard basket. Some people’s houses, just like the inside of their bodies, have become a real mess, and they give up even trying a simple cleansing regime causing them much embarrassment if others come to visit! You may know somebody with body odor, bad breath or a major weight problem. In some instances some people who have developed conditions such as this simply avoid social contact for embarrassment or fear of rejection and live a lonely life.
Likewise, if you drink fresh clean water every day, eat plenty of fresh, high quality organic foods and make those wise dietary and lifestyle choices your body will tend to get clean and stay clean, but don’t confuse the Big Clean-Up with detoxification, I’ll elaborate a lot more on detoxification in section 3 of this chapter.
Cleaning a room is certainly like cleansing your body on the inside. Dust and grime such as toxic residues may appear from those hidden recesses of the bowel, liver, kidney and lungs in particular, and deposit in the blood stream and lymphatic system.
You don’t wait 30, 40 or even 50 years to clean your house, but rarely consider your body when it comes to cleansing it on the inside, so when it does finally get a clean you can and should expect some aggravations, particularly if your room has had little to no attention for several decades. Doesn’t this make sense to you? It doesn’t to the medical profession, who never talk about cleansing or detoxification. They claim that there is “no scientific proof” that cleansing is necessary, and that the kidneys and liver are perfectly capable of keeping the body clean. I suppose those self-cleaning ovens and dishwashers are perfectly capable as well, the fact is that we always seem to need to call the repair guy for these amazing “self-cleaning” appliances because they clog up at the least opportune moments.
The Big Clean-Up gives you the opportunity to step-down from the diet and lifestyle you were leading, including dietary and lifestyle habits that may have contributed towards the development of your yeast infection. If you are serious about beating a yeast infection then it makes sense not to skip this important cleansing step, and the longer you have had yeast issues the more reason you will need to complete it.
