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

Child Candida Symptoms How To Recognize The Child Candida Patient

Greetings. New Zealand naturopath, Eric Bakker,author of Candida Crusher and formulator of the Canxida range of dietary supplements.Thank you again for tuning into my tutorial. I really appreciate you watching my tutorials.This is the third onea threepart series on how to recognize the Candida patient. Idid one previously on how to recognize the female patient who you suspect has Candida.I've just done one on the male and this is the third one. How to recognize a child witha yeast infection. I'll read a bit more out of my book.A child with Candida can be mislabeled hyperactive or learning disabled by a practitioner whodoes not fully understand the true significance

of pediatric yeast synome. William Crook,who wrote the Yeast Synome, was a pediatrician who noticed that many of his young patientswould improve significantly once the yeast overgrowth was eradied. It's a pity thatmany pediatricians today do not have the same level of al experience with intestinaldysbiosis and chilen's health that Crook had.Chilen who have Candida may manifest multiple allergic synomes that can affect them onmany different levels. These chilen can even display behavioral and learning difficultiesas a result of individual reactions to foods, chemicals and preservatives and may be linkedto a Candida yeast infection. In my al

experience, some chilen do not need ugslike Ritalin after all. Particularly, if they are first assessed and treated for allergiesand carefully screened for Candida and yeast infections or SIBO, small intestinal bacterialovergrowth. Like William Crook, I've certainly noticed over the years that chilen who haveboth behavioral and learning disabilities as well as yeast infections display a markeeduction of symptoms once the Candida is eliminated, much to their parents' relief.A very important part of Candida treatment with chilen is getting them away from sweetsas much as possible. And a good way to start is by eliminating all soda inks, candy,sweets, and unnecessary food and ink items.

This can present as a challenge and you willfind it an easier task with younger as opposed to older chilen. Believe me, I have fourchilen, and I know how difficult it can be, but it is achievable. Especially if youoffer your child fruits instead of highly processed sweets, ice cream, candy and sodainks. Even though fruits contain sugar, they don't contain the same kind of sugaras you would give straight out candy or ice cream. Give them diluted juices to step themdown. A case comes to mind. About a year ago, ofa lady who brought me a fiveyearold boy with an incredible attitude problem. In myroom, he was pulling all my books off the

shelf. He was jumping on the furniture andhe was very disruptive. The mom told me that she was feeding him one and half kilogramsof cheese a week. That equates to I think about three or four pounds of cheeseaweek. Just giving him big slices whenever he was screaming. I mentioned to her aboutthis connection with the molds, potentially the allergies and the behavior, and she wasa little bit. quot;How can that cause any problemséquot; But the amazing thing is when the child wasbrought backabout six weeks, he sat there on the chair with his hands folded on hislap and didn't move. And she said to me, quot;It's incredible how he's changed.quot; And it was justthe cheese. Food is really,some cases,

linked up to behavioral problems, so justpay attention to that. How do you recognize a child potentially witha yeast infectioné Let's read some things out of my book here. The case history willoften tell you if you're dealing with a child who has Candida or not. I regularly have naturopathicstudents who sitfor observationsmy , and I like them to be aware of theimportance of case taking when it comes to chilenthe , especially. A casewell taken is a case half solved. What happenedthe past is probably one of the most importantquestions you can ask a motheré It's surprising how when you ask a mother when her child wasprescribed an antibioticrelation to her

What Are Chilens Yeast Infections

Hi there, Eric Bakker, naturopath, authorof Candida Crusher back to you again with another tutorial. This time I'm going to talk to you about chilen'syeast infections. I'm talking mainly, not so much babies or toddler or infants, I'mtalking about a little bit older. Probably say four or five up to about 1314 years ofage is an age I commonly see with yeast infections. How do you know a child that age has got ayeast infectioné How can you diagnose a yeast infection with a younger personé There are different ways we can do that. Wecan do stool testing. We've got different

tests. You can read about thosemy book,Candida Crusher. But I don't generally have to do that with a child. I can usually seethat by the behavior and by the cravings and the presentations. The signs and symptomswill usually dictate what's going on there. You may find that a bit presumptuous or say,Eric, how can you do thaté You're not medically qualified. You're not diagnosing. How theheck can you say it's a yeast infection based on what you're seeing and treating it. I can tell you now al observation isthe gold standard according to a professor of medicine a few years agoAmerica. Whenyou get quite experiencedthe , you

start realizing that you don't need to haveparalysis from analysis all the time. You don't need to damn well test every singlething that comes through the door. It's expensive and sometimes a test can even be wrong andput you on the wrong track. What won't deceive you is your own eyes and your own experience.And, generally, you'll find that by working on that sixth sense or that hunch that youget and treating and then seeing the al result, you're going to get a lot of positivefeedback or negative feedback. You're going to know if you're on the right track or not. Now you may think that's placebo effect. Idon't really care what you think. All I care

about is the agreement I have with my patient.A patient comes in, pays me a fee, is looking for results, I'm going to try and work togive that patient that result. End off. Let's move on. We've got that out of the way. With the chilen, I tend to look very carefullyat the desire for sugar. Now you may, if you're an older person, know a bit about BenFeingold's work backthe 70s on identifying calories and flavorings with chilen andworking out that certain food colors, some preservatives, created behavioral disturbancesin chilen. This is quite important, groundbreaking, early work by a physician who identified somecore chemicalsfoods that could actually

affect the behavior of a person. Feingoldwent on to do a lot of work, I believe,the prison system. It was quite useful inhelping institutions out on correcting and modifying behavior based on his observationswith food. What alarms me today with young people isthe amazing amount of soda inks and energy inks that young people havetheir diets.Liters and liters of this stuff a week laced with caffeine, laced with Taurine, laced withsugars, laced with all these colors and sodium benzoate and caramel and all this crap inthese inks the kids are inking affecting their mood, their behavior, and their gutfunctions. All these phosphates they're taking

to ruin their stomach and pancreatic function.We're seeing alarming incidents increasepancreatic cancers. We're seeing a big increasein autism. We're seeing a big increasea whole raft of problems. One of the first things I look at is the consumptionof soda inks. It's a key thing. I look at also the consumption of specific foods. Wehad a patient only about four or five days ago now. A lady brought me this boy abouteight years old with major behavioral problems, incredible behavioral problems. I had himin my room here. He was pulling all the books off the shelves. He was banging my guitarand he was grabbing some plants I've got and
