Mental Fog

Mental Fog

Keith Bowman suffered from muscular dystrophy, diabetes and gout. Confined to a wheelchair, he experienced constant pain, fatigue and foggy mental health that did not allow him to think clearly.But a phone call to Guy Evans of BioActive Nutrients changed his life.

Evans’ company produces a comprehensive 30-Day Antimicrobial Cleanse Kit that is simple to use, effective and has served the needs of thousands of persons, whose symptoms of discomfort may be diverse yet emanate from one source: fungal overgrowth. “People don’t realize how common fungal overgrowth is,” says Evans.

Fungi Everywhere

As the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention notes: “Fungal infections pose an increasing threat to public health for several reasons. Fungi are everywhere. There are approximately 1.5 million different species of fungi on Earth….” Among the commonest conditions linked with fungal conditions:

Aspergillosis

Aspergillus is a common fungus that can be found in indoor and outdoor environments. Most people breathe in Aspergillus spores every day without being affected. Aspergillosis occurs in people with lung conditions or weakened immune systems. The spectrum of conditions includes allergic reactions, impaired lung and other organ function.

Blastomycosis

Caused by the fungus Blastomyces dermatitidis, which lives in moist soil and rotting wood and leaves in parts of the US and Canada, symptoms of blastomycosis are similar to those of the flu.

Candidiasis

Candidiasis is a fungal infection caused by yeasts that belong to the genus Candida. There are over 20 species of Candida yeasts that cause infection in humans, the most common of which is Candida albicans. Candida yeasts normally live on the skin and mucous membranes without causing infection; however, overgrowth of these organisms can cause symptoms to develop. Symptoms of candidiasis vary depending on the area of the body that is infected. Candidiasis that develops in the mouth or throat is called “thrush” or oropharyngeal candidiasis. Candidiasis in the vagina is commonly referred to as a “yeast infection.” Invasive candidiasis occurs when Candida species enter the bloodstream and spread throughout the body.

Dermatophytes (Ringworm)

Dermatophytes are fungi that cause skin, hair and nail infections. These fungi are also sometimes known as “ringworm” or “tinea.” Despite the name “ringworm,” this infection is not caused by a worm but by a type of fungus. Dermatophytes can live on moist areas of the skin, on environmental surfaces and on household items such as clothing, towels and bedding. Dermatophyte infections can affect the skin on almost any area of the body such as the scalp, legs, arms, feet, groin and nails. These infections are usually itchy. Redness, scaling, cracking of the skin or a ring-shaped rash may occur. If the infection involves the scalp

or beard, hair may fall out. Infected nails become discolored, thick and may crumble. More serious infections may lead to an abscess or cellulitis.

Keratitis

Keratitis is an inflammation of the cornea (the clear front part of the eye) and is often caused by fungus.

Histoplasmosis

Caused by the fungus Histoplasma capsulatum, which lives in the environment, often in association with large amounts of bird or bat droppings. Lung infection can occur after a person inhales airborne, microscopic fungal spores from the environment; symptoms of histoplasmosis are similar to pneumonia.

Allergic Fungal Sinusitis

A study in Mayo Clinic Proceedings reports that 210 consecutive patients with chronic sinusitis (101 treated surgically) were studied for fungal infections. Fungal cultures of nasal secretions were positive in 202 (96%) of the patients. Among the leading offenders, Candida albicans was cultured in 15.4% of samples; Alternaria in 44.3%; Penicillium in 43.3%; Cladosporium, in 39%; and various Aspergillus species in 29.5%. Many other fungal organisms were also cultured, although less frequently. These findings suggest that fungal allergy is extremely common in patients with chronic sinusitis. “Considering how common chronic sinusitis is, and how difficult it is to treat with conventional approaches, further investigation of the role of fungus infection/allergy is urgently needed,” commented Alan Gaby, MD.

Who Gets Fungal Infections?

Anyone can get a fungal infection. People breathe in or come in contact with fungal spores every day. However, in people with weak immune systems these fungi are more likely to cause infection. Among those persons most likely to be susceptible to fungal infections

• People with weak immune systems
• People exposed to mold in humid or flooded homes
• People living with HIV/AIDS
• Organ transplant patients
• Cancer patients
• Hospitalized patients
• Stem cell transplant patients
• People taking medications that weaken the immune system

4 Ingredients

“I started taking four kinds of natural anti-fungal remedies from the BioActive Nutrients anti-microbial kit and kept up with my diet,” Bowman explains. The anti-microbial cleanse from BioActive Nutrients changed his health status. His diabetes is under control; his gout hasn’t flared up; he feels better than he has in a long time. “I’m in a wheelchair and sit at a computer all day,” he said. “All I want is to feel good, keep working and be as healthy as I can be as long as I can be.”

Fungal Killers Made Simple

BioActive Nutrients’ 30-Day Microbial Cleanse delivers one’s antifungals in three daily individual packets to be taken at breakfast, lunch and dinner, making cleansing simple. The cleanse includes a multivitamin, fiber and additional foundational supplements. Among its fungal killers:

Undecylenic acid (UGN)

Noted for its ability to inhibit Candida albicans growth, a July 2008 study from Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy found UGN and its related derivatives showed “significant antifungal potencies” against Candida albicans, Candida glabrata, Candida krusei, Candida tropicalis, Candida parapsilosis, Cryptococcus neoformans, Aspergillus fumigatus, Aspergillus flavus, Aspergillus niger, Trichophyton mentagrophytes and Trichophyton rubrum. (UGN is combined with grapeseed extract and neem for extra fungal-killing power.)

Caprylic acid

In a 2011 report in Acupuncture & Electro-Therapeutics Research caprylic acid was found more effective than the antifungal drug diflucan for “intractable medical problems” including chronic upper respiratory infection, root canal tooth infection and yeast infection. Interestingly, caprylic acid improved telomere length (an indicator of cell health and longevity) and was said to have “potential application for anti-cancer, anti-aging, anti- Alzheimer’s disease, anti-autism, anti-infection and general circulatory improvement.”

Olive leaf

In a report from the summer 2013 issue of Advantages in Mind Body Medicine, olive leaf was used to alleviate yeast infection with a concurrent improvement in mental state of the patient. In a 2003 article in Mycoses olive leaves “killed almost all bacteria tested” within three hours and fungi within 24 hours. “These findings suggest an antimicrobial potential for olive leaves.”

Fungus Is A Word No One Likes

If you suffer from recurrent sinus, asthma or Candida problems… if you suffer from thrush, athlete’s foot, eye infections, nail, hair or skin problems such as seemingly incurable psoriasis… you might benefit from an anti-fungal cleanse designed to support your body’s quest to rid itself of these highly toxic organisms. Recent research suggests that a fungal cleanse might be the best antidote.

Birth Control Triggers Fungi

“Fungus is one of those words that no one likes to hear, say, or for that matter, experience,” says Evans. “It sounds bad and it is. Because of the way we live, we make it exceedingly easy for fungus to thrive in our bodies. We regularly ingest antibiotics and other prescription drugs including birth control pills that kill good bacteria and welcome bad pathogens such as fungi. Our diets are also often lacking adequate fermented foods and contribute to fungal overgrowth. When this happens, certain common symptoms become readily apparent. These symptoms include: yeast infections, sinus problems, digestive disorders, ringworm, athlete’s foot, psoriasis, itchy scalp, headache, sore joints and rashes. We see the positive changes in people who use this kit regularly and follow a good diet with probiotics.

How Soon Fungi Surrender

“Upon starting your anti-fungal cleanse you should start to notice a change within the first week. Everybody is different and there is no set time as to how long it will take to completely get the fungus out of your system. Most people feel that 30 days is sufficient to get their body back in control although more difficult cases may require 90 days or longer. During this period, you should notice your sinus, asthma or Candida conditions improving along with your overall health,” said Evans. When trying to battle off chronic sinusitis, yeast infection, mental fog, fatigue, respiratory distress or other conditions that just don’t seem to get better, a 30-day antimicrobial fungal cleanse is a priority. BioActive Nutrients’ 30-Day Antimicrobial Cleanse makes it simple.
