  • I am 31 years old and have had severe Yeast Infection for over 8 years. I have been suffering (yes! really suffering for so long) and I have indeed tried every over-the-counter and prescription that you could think of to treat this horrible disease. My wife also suffered from moderate Yeast Infection for years and we both started your Yeast Infection No More system about 4 months ago and I am so excited to report that we are both free from Yeast Infection. Both of us! For the first time ever. The symptoms are gone...completely! And the overall feeling is unbelievable. Thank you for your help... ★★★

  • I have started the program this September and I must say I'm very pleased with the results. I was overweight and sick from candida and had severe swelling, and redness in the vulva area including vaginal discharge. Using your program I have lost a TON of weight. I no longer itch and scratch. The vaginal discharge had stopped and I'm feeling better than ever. I have also found through your book that some of my other health problems are from candida yeast overgrowth. My acid reflux and my skin texture had dramatically improved and I feel awesome physically. ■■■

The mother reported of two similar episodes in the previous two months. At the age of 12 months, the child was again brought in with an episode of measles, from which he recovered after treatment. At 18 months of age, it was observed that the boy’s height and weight were not appropriate to his age. The child was the fourth of unrelated parents. His 3 sisters enjoyed good health and the parents did not report of them suffering from any repeated infections, unlike the boy.
  43. 43.  Tests on the boy showed the serum immunoglobulin G to be less than a tenth and IgA and IgM to be less than a hundredth of the normal level. Lymph node biopsy revealed depletion of cells of bursa dependent areas.  Diagnosis?  Treatment?
