Distinguished future physicians welcome toStomp on Step 1 the only free tutorials series that helps you study more efficiently by focusingon the highest yield material. I'm Brian McDaniel and I will be your guide on thisjourney through vulvovaginal infections. This is the 3rd tutorialmy playlist covering allof microbio. Vulvovaginitis (AKA Vaginitis) is inflammationof the lower genital tract. It is usually due to infection, but there are a wide varietyof causes. During this tutorial we will focus on the 3 most important causes of vulvovaginitisfor the medical board exam (trichomonas, candida and BV). However, you should know that othertypes of vaginitis include mechanical irritation,

allergic reactions (to soaps or feminine products)and a variety of other infections. Atrophic Vaginitis is a common cause of vaginitis inpostmenopausal women and we will cover thata later tutorialthe GYN section. Gonorrheaand Chlamydia present primarily with cervicitis, but it can also cause vulvovaginitis. GCwill be covered laterits own tutorial. We will start with a few different tests thatwe will use to differentiate between the different infections.Wet Prep (AKA Wet Mount Test) is a microscopic examination of vaginal discharge used to differentiatebetween different types of vulvovaginitis. The vaginal specimen is obtained using a speculumand a que tip similar to how one gets a pap

smear. Then the specimen is rubbed onto aglass slide. One half of the slide has a op of saline added to it while the other halfof the slide has a op of 1020% KOH (Potassium hyoxide) added to it.When Saline is added it makes it easier to view clue cells for BV flagellated motilecells for trichomonas. The KOH kills bacteria and vaginal cells leavingonly yeast cells. This makes it easier to view the psuedohyphae and budding yeast presentduring vulvovaginal candidiasis. KOH is also alkalotic so it can be used fora “Whiff Test.� In this scenario when the alkalotic KOH is added to a sample containingBV it will create an amine or fishy smell.

This is a similar principle behind how thesmell of BV can increase after unprotected sex since semen is alkalotic. The normal vaginal pH for a reproductive agewoman is about 4, while the normal vaginal pH before puberty and after menopause is about7. During puberty there is an estrogen guided increasethe growth lactobacilli flora.These bacteria break down glycogen into lactic acid which lowers pH from about 7 to about4. Now that you know the normal values you can apply it to diseases. Usually, BacterialVaginosis Trichomonas have alkalotic pH (gt;4.5reproductive age women) while candidahas normal pH (lt;4.5). pH paper can be tested

by using pH paper on vaginal discharge. You can see here at the top right corner thatI give BV a high yield rating of 3 on a scale from 1 to 10. If you want to learn more about that ratingsystem you can go to my website or click on this orange box here if you are watching thistutorial on a computer. Bacterial Vaginosis (AKA BV) is a polymicrobialinfection caused by the overgrowth of normal flora. The key bacteriathis infectionis gram negative Gardnerella Vaginalis. Clue cells are visible on the saline portionof a wet prep. A Clue Cell is a sloughed mucosal

squamous epithelial cell coveredmany adherentcoccoid bacteria (Gardenerella Vaginalis). Here is a picture comparing normal squamousepithelial cells with a few stered lactobacill to squamous cells that are coveredthousandsof adherent garenerella bacteria. Here is one more pic. You can see on the leftwe have a normal squamos epithelial cell with a few WBCs. On the right we have the darkerClue cells. Finally I have a photomicrograph to look atin case you see that on your test. A thinwatery graywhite discharge is presentA fouls smell is present and often described as an Amine Odor or Fishy Smell. This smellis intensified after unprotected intercourse

Greetings there. It's New Zealand naturopath,Eric Bakker. Author of Candida Crusher, formulator of the Canxida range of products. Thanks fortuning into my tutorial. I really appreciate it. Thank you all the people who've subscribedto my channel. There are many subscribers coming on board now from many different partsof the world. I keep getting lots of increasing comments on YouTube and I'm getting lots ofemail. So just please be aware that I can't really reply to all of the emails I get. Iget tons of emails. Occasionally, I'll pick out an email and I'll respond to it, but thereare many emails I just can't reply to anymore. My priority obviously goes to the patientswho see methe , on Skype or Face

Time. They take up the share of my work. Itry to communie with people really effectively through the YouTube channel.I've got a question here from a manMissouri, America. This man's name is Johnathan Wainright.Johnathan'shis 60s and he wears dentures. Johnathan is asking me about mouth yeast infections.What can he doé Let's talk about mouth and throat yeast infections with this tutorial. I'llgive you some understanding on a little bit on what to do and some of the best possiblesolutions for it. I'm going to read some out of my book and I'll also talk along with thatas well. To reduce your chances of developing and maintaining a mouth or throat yeast infection,I highly recommend you follow these 10 rules.

You'll notice that quite a few dietary andlifestyle recommendations are based on the fact that oral and throat yeast infectionswill thrivean environment that is warm, dark, moist and is fed on sugars and yeastyfoods. Sometimes also pharmaceutical ugs as we'll see can affect the mucosa.Knowing this, think about excellent oral hygiene, take away the food supply for the yeast, sotake the sugars away. Make it more hostile for the yeast to really thrivethe areaand keep the area clean. It's also pleasant for people around you if you haven't got likea stinky breath, but you've got like a sweet smelling breath. When you've got a good amountof lactic acid and beneficial bacteria in

your mouth, you'll have a breath that smellsquite okay. Sweet smelling breath. It won't be stinky. There's nothing worse than beingnear someone whose mouth smells really like a public toilet or something, and believeme, there are some stinky breaths out there. I know. I've had a few people over the years.This may be part of the reason why I like Skype because I can't really smell that muchon Skype. I'm not saying that all you guys have stinky breath out there. But if you havegot a smell, bad breath or what we call halitosis, a medical term, sometimes you won't even knowit yourself. Do not be afraid to ask people around you if your breath stinks because itcan be quite offensive and embarrassing for

you if you don't know.Number one, observe good oral hygiene. It makes good sense to observe very good oralhygiene since this is the entry to the digestive tract. I recommend that you rinse your mouthfirst and then brush your teeth. You can floss it, but gently. Be careful not to floss toohard because you can really damage the gums. I use a tea tree oil toothpaste, but you canalso use a bit of baking soda with water or a bit of sea salt or you can use a commercialtoothpaste, but try to get more of a natural one without too many chemicalsit. Thebest time to brush your tongue is when you brush your teeththe morning. Bacteriaand yeast will multiply more on the tongue

overnight than during the day. You may beable to find a good herbal mouthwash at your local health food shop as well. Be carefulwith the commercial mouthwashes highalcohol because they can destroy a lot of the beneficialbacteriayour mouth. Not a good idea. To avoid reinfecting yourself when brushingyour teeth, try disinfecting your toothbrush regularly by placing the toothbrusha littlebit of hyogen peroxide for a few minutes before and after tooth brushing. This is especiallyrelevant if you have gum disease, if you've got a lot of white coating on your tongue.It's important to keep your toothbrush clean. A couple of points I'd like to explain toyou also with teeth. Many people spend a lot

Main Causes Of Yeast Infections

Hi there, Eric Bakker, naturopath and authorof Candida Crusher. Thanks for tuning into my tutorial today. Today, I'd like to talk to you about the 11main causes of a yeast infection. The main things that I find that commonly underpina yeast infection when patients come to see me for consultation. To explain a bit more about the causes, itprobably would be good to explain that I find that there are two types of causes with people.What I call the exciting cause and what I call the maintaining cause. The exciting causeis what really starts off the yeast infection;

what begins it all. Because when you thinkabout it, something had to cause the whole problem. It had to start for some reason.You didn't just wake up one day and Oh, I got a yeast infection. It developed and somethinghelped it along. Something created this yeast infection. That's called the exciting cause.If you've had a yeast infection for many years, like a chronic one, it may be hard to rememberthe exciting cause. We'll come back to that later. The second cause is the maintaining cause.This is what you're doing continually to keep it going. This could be a food or a inkor a lifestyle habit that's contributing to

this continuation of the yeast infection.It's important if I'm going to help you permanently eradie a yeast infection that you adessboth the exciting and the maintaining causes. Let's talk a little bit about the 11 typesof causes which I commonly seethe . The first one is antibiotics ugs. Antibioticsprobably are the biggest cause of any yeast infection. And not just of yeast infections,but of many different diseases we have today. I think they're the scourge of pharmaceuticalugs. While so necessarymany cases, I believe they're completely overprescribedand given far too judiciously and handed out like candy to chilen. In fact, too manypeople get antibiotics for too many silly

reasons. I've beenmy business now 25 yearsand I routinely get mothers coming in, they bring a childwho's had a script for penicillinfor seven days for a tiny little cut on the finger or something ridiculous like that;that tea tree oil could solve. If you're one of these people who routinelytakes antibiotics, you could befor a rude awakening. You need to be careful of antibioticsbecause they certainly create a lot of problemsthe body. We don't call them antibiosisor antilife for no reason. They kill life. They kill a lot of beneficial life. And ifyou keep taking these ugs, you'll find that bacteria and yeast will become increasinglyresistant to the effects of them. It'll be

harder and harder for you to counter thesebugs down the track. I've raised my four chilen on no antibioticsat all. They've never had antibiotics and they'regreat health. We've always reliedon herbal medicines and homeopathies and other treatments, and we've had fantastic results.Then when the kids do get a sore throat or they get sick, we'll give them herbs. We'lldo salt water gargles; they'll quickly recover within two days. I've never resorted to theseugs and I don't think that you should jump into thema hurry. I think you need tobe careful about what you're doing. Antibiotics are the prime cause of many yeast infections.I've seen thousands of people come to me who've

never been well since a prescription of anantibiotic. The second one is antibioticsmeat. Littledo you know that the pork you're eating or the chicken or the beef could well have ugsin it, antibioticsé We know the growth hormone is usedmany animals, pork and beef particularly,to stimulate growth. But what you may not be aware of is chicken get loads of antibiotics.If you're buying commercial poultry, it'll be full of antibiotics. The poultry industrywill tell you that these ugs are safe, but I can tell you now, they're not safe at all.They cram these chickens into small cages, keep themthe dark, and feed them on highprotein foods. They spray antibiotic sprays
