music It's a typical day. A patient has noticedsome itching, or maybe an unpleasant vaginal odor. During her exam, the ian willcheck vaginal pH, examine any discharge that's present, and collect a sample. Then, it'son to the microscope. music This is where you'll gather more specificinformationabout what's causing those vaginal symptoms. We'll show you how to prepare andexamine vaginal wet preps and how to do a whiff test. The results, combined with the patient's vaginal pH test, will aidthe diagnosis.
Under the microscope, you'll be looking for trichomonads, yeast, and the clue cells associated with bacterial vaginosis. We'll show you how to recognize them. music First, the microscope itself: This is a compoundlight microscope. It has several objective lenses on a rotating mount. For our purpose,one of these has to be a 10x low power objective, and one has to be a 40x for greater magnifiion.This flat part, under the objectives, is the stage. Under the stage is the condenser. Belowthat, at the base of the microscope, is the light source. There are two knobs that controlfocus; one for coarse adjustment and one for
fine adjustment. And these are the oculars,or eyepieces. We'll come back to the microscopea minute, but first, let's look at how to prepare wet mount slides. The complete vaginal wet mount involves botha saline prep and a potassium hyoxide, or KOH, prep. When the vaginal sample was collected,the swab was placeda test tube with approximately half a milliliter of saline. So, for the salineprep, you only have to take a op of the suspension and place it on a slide. Add acoverslip, being careful to avoid trapping air bubbles. Your saline slide is ready.Place a second op of the vaginal sample on another slide and add one op of 10 percentKOH. Sniff the preparation immediately, using
your hand to waft any odor toward your nose.This is the whiff test. Note if there's a fishy or amine odor. Then add a coverslip,avoiding air bubbles. Keepmind that you must work quickly to prepare and examine thewet mounts. That's because trichomonads may lose their characteristic motility within15 to 20 minutes. Before we move on now, though, let's lookat the cast of characters you may discover. These are normal squamous epithelial cellsfoundthe vagina. They're large, flat cells with a small nucleus and a large area of cytoplasm.Note that there is some granularitythe cytoplasm.
Polymorphonuclear leukocytes are known asPolys, or PMNs. They may also be called white blood cells, or WBCs. These are small roundcells. Several lobes of the nucleus are visible within the surrounding cell cytoplasm. Findingmany PMNs may indie infection. Trichomonads are pearshaped protozoa whichmove by means of flagella. Trichomonads are similarsize to PMNs and are identifiedby their characteristic jerking movement. The actual flagella may be too thin and toorapidlymoving to be seen. A clue cell is a squamous epithelial cellcoated with enough small bacteria that at least 75 percent of the cell's border is obliterated.It may look as if someone has spread glue
over the cell and pressed itsand. Cluecells are associated with bacterial vaginosis, a conditionwhich the normal microbialflora of the vagina is disrupted. Yeast may be foundtwo forms. Pseudohyphaeare the long, tubular, branching forms. Budding yeast are paired yeast cells that resemblea shoe print. The larger part is the sole and the smaller bud is the heel of the shoe. The saline prep will allow you to see epithelialcells, PMNs, trichomonads, and clue cells. You can also see yeastsaline, but sometimesit's hidden by epithelial cells or by PMNs. Red blood cells, sperm, and bacteria can alsobe seen.
Will A Male Yeast Infection Go Away On Its Own
Here's a question. Will a male yeast infectiongo away on its owné It can. In fact, it is possible if it's a very slight yeast infectionand not much is done about it. Particularly, if the guy makes a few changes to his dietand lifestyle and starts to realize that he's really gone off track and makes a few changesand then the body will pick up; the immune system will get on top of it. Butmostcases, it will not go away unless the guy makes a significant change or starts usingsome kind of cream or pill to suppress the symptom, but those treatments are only temporary,and they can harm your bodythe long term because you're still doing the things thatmaintain the Candida and now you're taking
a ug, whether it's topical or oral, to tryto get rid of the problem. I've always been a great believeridentifyingthe cause and treating the cause, and if you understand that with Candida we've usuallygot an exciting cause or something that starts the yeast infection and then we've got a maintainingcause, something that keeps it going. For example, you may have had an antibiotic foran illness or an infection and that could've started your jock itch like it did with me.I had a chest infection. I workeda flourmill as a young guy doing rotating shifts, I gotvery sick and developed a bad bronchial infection and the gave me antibiotics. And Iwent on a few rounds of them and then I started
getting itchy skin and the jock itch and itdidn't go away. And how did I maintain ité Well, I was inkingbeer like all guys do. We all ink beer. And I ank stupid things like CocaCola andI had a poor diet backthose days. I liveda house that was quite moldy. It was ina lowlying area and when it rained I used to get sometimes watermy beoom. Therewas even like a black mold on the walls, so I was sleepinga moldy environment. I waseating poor foods. I was livinga high stress sort of job with rotating shifts, midnight,working days, and the midnights and crazy hours, so all these stresses on the body maintainedthe jock itch.
These are the sort of things that you've gotto look at. You won't get rid of this problem unless you make major changes, so I got ridof my job, just got rid of it. I moved out of that house, moved away, and I saw a naturopath,which was the start of my naturopathic career. The naturopath helped me to understand thatall that Candida was was a combination of all of these factors that I had to make changes.And when I made the changes, the jock itch slowly went away after about a year. So this is what you need to do. Identify whatcaused it and what's maintaining it and deal with this problem correctly. When you do that,you'll put an end to this nightmare. That's
how you get rid of it. It won't go away onits own accord. You need to make those changes. Check on my other tutorials and do the yeastinfection quiz, the world's best one, on yeastinfection you'll find links to that or CandidaCrusher will take you directly to my quiz. Thanks for tuning in.
How To CURE CANDIDA In One Hour
Greetings. It's New Zealand naturopath, EricBakker, author of Candida Crusher. Thanks so much for checking out my tutorial. I'm goingto talk now about how you can cure Candidaone hour. What do you think about thatéThis is a sequel to quot;How to Cure Candida24 hours.quot; I think it was 24 hours or 7 days.I did another similar tutorial with a very short defined time on curing Candida and I got kickedin the ass when I did this tutorial. Kickedthe ass. I've had all this hate mail and fanmail and awful email comments. In fact, I've disabled comments on that tutorial and I'm goingto disable comments on this tutorial. This is not switch and bait. I did not dothis tutorial to give you any kind of false promise.
In fact, let me read out some interestingstuff here. I found an interesting website that says not to use these seven particularterms on any kind of tutorial or blog or article regarding health or medicine. Cure, miracle,breakthrough, promising, amatic, hope, or you are a victim. These aren't really goodwords to use at all when it comes to tutorials. I just looked at two tutorials on YouTube regardingcuring Candida that use the word quot;cure.quot; Now, you're only going to find me using that wordtwice on YouTube. With this tutorial and the other promise that I gave you that we cancure it very quick. If you're watching this tutorial thinking thatyou can get rid of your Candidaone hour,
then you are a sucker because it isn't goingto happen. quot;Former yeast infection sufferer reveals the only holistic systemexistencethat will show you how to permanently cure your yeast infection,quot; 22,798 viewers. Whata load of crap. Next one, quot;Cure Candida yeast infection guaranteed.quot; And I watched thisparticular gentlemen speaking who said there are three causes of Candida and these arethe three prime causes, leaky gut is the number one cause. Second one is excessive alcoholconsumption, and a third one is too much phosphorusfood. I don't really think so, 11,060 viewers,not bad. I suspect this tutorial is going to get a lotof views mainly because there are a lot of
suckers out there who believe that they canget rid of Candida60 minutes of less. Now, why do you think I'm wearing blacké I'mwearing black because it's the opposite of white. I didn't want to wear a white coatand look like a total idiot. I hate people who wear white coats doing tutorials on healthwith stethoscopes wrapped around them. I've got a stethoscope. I could put that aroundmy neck if it might make you feel like I'm a bit more medical. There, I can do that foryou, but it doesn't look good on black, does ité It looks quite stupid, so I won't do it.White coats look dumb on the internet as far as I'm concerned. It's got nothing to do withhealing. Maybe it shows up blood more if you're
performing surgery on someone. I don't knowwhy they wear these white coats. White coats, hypertension, have you heard of it, gettingblood pressure when you go to the . That's why I'm wearing black because it'sthe opposite of white. There is no way you're going to get rid ofCandidaone hour. And there is no way you're going to get rid of itseven days. It'san overgrowth. It's an imbalance. It's caused because of some kind of a faulty mode of living.Eating and living isimbalance. Imbalances take time to correct. Any kind of imbalancetakes time because you've got a lot to learn. You need to learn a lot about how to live,how to eat, many different things need to
be taught to someone with a big imbalance.So if you really think that you can cure Candidaone hour, then you just got sucked in.Thank you for watching this tutorial.
