Hello. I stumbled upon your website while searching
for a holistic practitioner.
I was told I needed to find a specific kind of specialist.
I think it's called "aeriologist" "eariologist"
or "airiologist." I live in NYC and I think this
is similar to a Chinese herbalist. This was one of the practitioners
I was told to find.
Please help me if you can. It's been confirmed that I'm really
suffering with a yeast overgrowth in my system.
Can you also recommend some websites/physicians that address
issues of candida or yeast overgrowth in the system.
Hmm, perhaps it was "iridologist." Iridology is a way
of diagnosing the body based on the eye- not part of Chinese medicine
(and I don't know any practitioners) but similar, because in CM
we can diagnose based on a number of systems, observing different
parts of the body, etc. The advantages of Chinese medicine are
the effective and personalized treatments (acupuncture and herbal
medicine) we do and constitutional balancing (personalized diet,
lifestyle, and exercise) we can suggest after diagnosing you.
In NYC, I'd suggest seeing Juliette Aiyana, a great friend of
mine, and a contributor to our website. See her column and info
With Candida, you not only need to look at diet, but may even
need western drugs if it's very serious. After killing off the
excess yeast, you should restore balance and get into a personalized
pattern-balancing lifestyle, diet, and exercise plan- Juliette
can help you with that after diagnosing your patterns.
I've dealt briefly (not comprehensively, unfortunately) with
candida in a few articles:
Hope that helps, and let me know how your treatment goes!
