Hanna’s Remedies for Fungus and Fungal Infections

Did you know your body is covered in tiny fungal ecosystems? True and completely normal and natural though that doesn’t change the fact that it’s a bit creepy. The presence of fungus in and on the body is kept in check through our body’s healthy antibodies and bacteria though sometimes the balance is tipped towards the fungus and an infection can result. You’re probably aware of the usual suspects: Athlete’s foot, jock itch, yeast infections, or diaper rash and cradle cap but what about the maladies that result from fungus overstaying its welcome and overtaking our healthy bodies? Keeping fungus in check and ridding our systems of the toxins resulting from fungus is a topic Hanna discussed extensively and while that image to the left looks lovely, it’s actually fungus that lives on our skin and nails… read on for Hanna’s tips and remedies!

Did you know your body is covered in tiny fungal ecosystems? True and completely normal and natural though that doesn’t change the fact that it’s a bit creepy. The presence of fungus in and on the body is kept in check through our body’s healthy antibodies and bacteria though sometimes the balance is tipped towards the fungus and an infection can result. You’re probably aware of the usual suspects: Athlete’s foot, jock itch, yeast infections, or diaper rash and cradle cap but what about the maladies that result from fungus overstaying its welcome and overtaking our healthy bodies? Keeping fungus in check and ridding our systems of the toxins resulting from fungus is a topic Hanna discussed extensively and while that image to the left looks lovely, it’s actually fungus that lives on our skin and nails… read on for Hanna’s tips and remedies!

Hanna believed that 90% of the Western population suffers from fungal infections and that the most susceptible to infection are those who are obese, frequently take antibiotics or birth control, people with diabetes, or those with Epstein-Barr or HIV. Fungus spreads rapidly, especially on moist areas of the body and when processed foods or antibiotics are ingested frequently. Because fungus is present on each and every one of our bodies, no matter how healthy we are, looking after our systems internally to avoid infection and the spread of fungus is important. Hanna truly believed in the power of healing our bodies naturally, especially through the foods we eat and shared these remedies:

Hanna’s Food Remedies for Fungus:

  • Drink 3 glasses of Concord grape juice daily
  • Eat 2 tablespoons asparagus twice daily
  • Drink cinnamon tea each morning and evening (add 1 teaspoon freshly ground cinnamon to a mug of hot water, sweeten with honey if desired)
  • Add plenty of alfalfa sprouts, chickpeas and sage to your diet
  • Drink aloe vera juice
  • Clear fungus using Hanna’s interferon recipe (Each morning eat 1 pint cottage cheese with 5 tablespoons of walnut, apricot or almond oil. Continue for 3 weeks)
  • Eat Hanna’s natural antibiotic foods: grapefruit, garlic, willow, radish, chlorophyll and bee pollen

Eating these foods will help to keep fungus levels in check in your system but if you’re already experiencing the symptoms of a fungal infection, there are additional (but still natural!) measures you can take. Once a fungal infection occurs in our systems there is a great chance that it will return several times throughout the year if it is not addressed properly. Yeast infections, for example, impacts the comfort of at least 75 million women worldwide annually according to The Fungal Research Trust. What’s worse? Of those women, nearly 10% will experience up to 4 repeated infections within the year. Struggle to keep itchy athlete’s foot at bay? It’s estimated that 1 in 5 people have it and considering it spreads person-to-person through contact with an area infected with the fungus (think shower stalls), that number isn’t going anywhere.

If you’re presently struggling with a fungal infection or have in the past, Hanna created several herbal products that can cleanse the system of fungus and rid your body of the toxins fungus produces.

Hanna’s Fungal Infection Remedies:

This list is compiled from Hanna’s book, Help One Another, and is only a sample of the items she recommended to take internally for fungal infection. Fungus that is taking hold in the system can lead to a number of illnesses that are often misdiagnosed for other illnesses which means that the overgrowth is allowed to continue and the condition can become much worse before it becomes better. Some indications of a possible fungal infection (other than the certain presence of conditions like a yeast infection or athlete’s foot that you can see/feel) include skin trouble resulting in acne or dull skin and stomach or digestive issues. Because of the toxins that a fungal infection creates in our systems, our intestinal lining can become inflamed or permeated causing leaky gut, a painful and wounded digestive system that can cause irritable bowel, constipation, or impact the proper absorption of nutrients from the foods we eat. Learn more about leaky gut here.

Cinnamon[1]

A common complaint of fungal overgrowth on the body is the presence of a dry, itchy, red rash. With winter approaching it will be easy to assume the change in temperature is the culprit but don’t discount the possibility of fungus! For fungus on the skin Hanna believed in applying diluted cinnamon oil directly to the area several times a day until it disappears. Good choices for oils to dilute the cinnamon oil with arealmond, jojoba or grapeseed. Fungus cannot live in the presence of cinnamon. Check out the plethora of other benefits of cinnamon oil here.

Whether its the presence of Candida in the system, a recurring yeast infection, itchy athlete’s foot or a rash that just won’t stop, assessing the presence of fungus in your system and clearing it from the body with Hanna’s remedies is a natural and safe remedy for good health.

Fluctuations in temperature and moisture have you wondering if it’s winter or if we really are heading into summer? Imagine how confused your skin is feeling! Winter is a thief of moisture and often we do not fully heal our skin before welcoming the sun and wind of spring and summer. What can you do? Plenty. Check out our A-Z for improving the look and feel of your skin not only naturally but easily too! Hello, gorgeous!

Vitamin A: Cries from your skin for Vitamin A can range from acne to rough spots or even raised bumps on your back and arms. Want clear and healthy skin that glows? Check your Vitamin A intake and be sure to supplement your diet with trusted products like this one from Nature’s Way.

Vitamin B: Soft and glowing summer skin that looks younger could be with the help of Vitamin B! Deficiencies in this vitamin lead to more pronounced wrinkles, graying skin, acne, rashes and loss of hair!Anti-Fatigue is our pick for Vitamin B supplementation as it not only reveals healthy and beautiful skin but also boosts energy levels by naturally supporting your adrenal glands.

Vitamin C: Boost your immune system, benefit heart function and fight free radicals with Vitamin C! Relating this vitamin to cold and flu season only would mean you’re missing out on slowing the process of aging, protecting collagen in your skin and reducing fine lines and wrinkles.

Vitamin D: According to Natural Solutions Magazine, if you live north of Atlanta, GA then your skin isn’t getting proper doses of Vitamin D during the winter months and supplementation could be necessary, even as the weather warms, to make up for deficiencies. Adequate amounts of Vitamin D in our systems keeps our skin healthy and clear and can also assist with the sleepiness and sadness that can accompany those last few weeks before spring comes!

Vitamin E: Oral supplementation of Vitamin E keeps your skin supple and glowing year round! As temperatures begin to rise, the needs of your skin change and lotions rich in Vitamin E oil properly hydrate your thirsty skin and can heal the cracks and chapped areas from cooler months.

Keep in mind that Vitamins A, B, D and E are fat soluble and are stored in the body until they are needed and do not need to be consumed each day. Vitamin C on the other hand is water soluble and should be consumed daily and, in the case of boosting your immune system, multiple times a day!

F: Fennel is not only a delicious part of gardening in the spring and summer! Drinking fennel tea can flush toxins from your system, keeping your skin clear and smooth. Add two teaspoons fennel seed to a mug of boiling water and allow to steep for 3 minutes before drinking.

G: Get Your Greens! Whether its watercress, spinach, kale, romaine or collards, the greens of the garden are a good source of fiber, Vitamin C and antioxidants to fight free radicals, keep your digestive system clear so toxins can be properly eliminated and support acne-free skin with fewer wrinkles!

H: Hydration is among the most important things you can do for your entire body, not just your skin. One of our bodies cries for water is dry or scaly skin, acne or rashes. Be sure you are properly hydrating throughout the day and look out for signs of your body’s needs with this book.

I: Improve. Start small and build your way up to make your current practices for healthy skin even stronger. Apply sunscreen often but not daily last summer? Strive to be better this year. Didn’t hydrate properly? Used products that weren’t natural and wish you would have? Make a change.

J: Jojoba Oil is a go-to for all seasons but especially where dry or scaly skin is concerned. Use it as a moisturizer for your entire body, from heels to a scaly scalp! Wild Sage has two great products that we love to nourish skin and hair. Soften wrinkles and moisturize the delicate skin under your eyes withJojoba Eye Cream and turn dry hair into beautiful locks with Rosemary Jojoba Hair Oil (psst! It fights dandruff too!).

Vitamin K can help to reduce bags, discoloration or darkness under your eyes by improving circulation in the body.

L: Lip care shouldn’t be overlooked where healthy skin is concerned! Get gorgeous, flushed lips with a gentle scrub using an old toothbrush with coconut oil and choose lip balms with natural peppermint likeBurt’s Bees.

M: Microbeads can help to clear dry, scaly skin and bring out a natural glow to anyone’s skin but be gentle! Choose products that are made of natural ingredients and avoid frequent use or rough sloughing as you can cause harm to the surface of your skin. “Less is more” is the way to play here.

Ultimate Omega Stock Photo Cropped

Nourish your skin with healthy fats like Omega 3s to maintain the natural oils in the skin. What you put inside your body is just as important as what you put on the outside of your body so if dry skin is an issue for you look beyond creams and topical oils and get the healthy oils inside!

Oh, speaking of oil: Choose a natural moisturizer when your skin is at its driest that is a powerhouse to lock in moisture. We like grapeseed, applied just after a shower or bath to lock in moisture, ease itchiness and heal chapped and red skin.

P: Protect your skin from the sun by choosing natural SPF products with strong coverage. Think they are expensive or hard to find? We’ve got your covered with our newest addition to our skincare line, Taspen’s!

Quit smoking: Not only will you add years to your life but you’ll also save thousands of dollars, improve the look and feel of your skin, reduce wrinkles and cut down on noticeable spots on your skin’s surface. Do your body a favor and quit it.

R: Regularity is the key to everything here. Apply sunscreen, moisturize, hydrate, eat healthy foods and mind your vitamin intake to benefit your skin quickly and effectively.

S is obviously for skin and we are all about using products that are all-natural and all-wonderful. We recently picked up a skincare line from Acure and couldn’t be more pleased with how well this line works. It is affordable and has a formula for everyone. Sensitive skin? No problem. Oily? They’ve got you covered. Check out their entire line.

T is for tomato, often the star of warm weather gardens. Fresh from your back yard or the grocer, this little skin aid is rich in Vitamin C and improves circulation throughout the body for the improved appearance of skin.

lavender stalks

U: Undo the stress of the day in the most effective way for you and you’ll be surprised to see that it will show up on your face! Meditate, have a cup of tea, chat with a friend or try an essential oil aimed at bringing calm into your life like lavender. Stress can cause a number of issues, including pre-mature aging, take a look at these5 easy steps to manage it.

V: Vitamins! We purposefully gave several vitamins their own slot instead of waiting until the end! Keep your body healthy and happy with proper supplementation.Check out our Vitamins and Minerals section.

We’re wild about wild caught fish to ensure we are eating omega 3s and other healthy fats for healthy skin while avoiding the un-natural and often harmful additions in farm raised fish. Keep your eye on labels when purchasing fish and buy wild caught.

X: It’s not much of a stretch but X here stands for exam. Have a funky spot you don’t remember ever seeing? Not sure if that mole has changed shape? Feel like there’s something a little off? Go have it checked out. Fretting over an issue will do more harm than good to your health and early detection is often the best medicine there is.

Y: Yawning is an indication that it’s time to hit the hay and get proper shut eye. Our skin repairs itself while we sleep and if you’re missing out on proper rest, your skin is too! Difficulty getting adequate sleep can be assisted naturally. Check out our Mind, Mood and Sleep section for great products that are non-habit forming.

ZZinc assists in proper structure of proteins and cell membranes, improves wound healing, has anti-inflammatory effects and protects against UV radiation. While you may be trying to ingest zinc through your diet, supplementation is often necessary to ensure adequate amounts and these benefits.

The transition from fall to winter is a beautiful one with vibrant changes of color in trees, crisp air, and earlier nightfall.

While it’s natural to want to curl up with a hot cup of tea or soup as the temperatures drop outside, doing so if you’re suffering from a cold can benefit your health and ease the symptoms of illness. Ensuring your throat is properly coated with liquids can ease an itchy throat or dry cough while also hydrating your body to keep your immune system working properly. Try drinking herbal teas such as Hanna’s CGH with organic honey and try to follow Hanna’s recommendation of making chicken soup from scratch when a cold sets in to bring necessary hydration using organic vegetables that will release important vitamins and minerals. Read this helpful blog about Remedies for Cold and Flu.

CGH Tea

Remedy a hacking cough and discomfort of a sore throat with Hanna’s Cough Tea

If you’re having trouble sleeping at night because of a cough, try sleeping at an incline. When we lay down at night, gravity works against us and forces mucus swallowed during the day back up into the throat causing irritation and coughing. Prop yourself up with pillows and be sure to keep a glass of water beside your bed to lubricate your throat as needed.

Made from wood and glass, no heat or water is used to vaporize oils with an aromatherapy diffuser.

Having a humidifier in the room when you are suffering from a cold or dry cough can help tremendously. Because dry air tends to intensify the symptoms of a cough or cold, having moisture in the air will cut back on fits of coughing and help you to breathe more easily. Don’t have a humidifier? Try to purchase one that will allow you to add drops of essential oils to the water for added relief.  A recommended product is Thieves from Young Living which is a powerful oil that defends against airborne bacteria and can keep everyone in the household guarded. Add Thieves to your humidifier, or to an essential oil diffuser. Also a neat trick is to add 30 drops to a spray bottle filled with water and spritz around your home.

For some immediate relief of a stuffy nose and to break up mucus in your lungs, try adding several drops of organic eucalyptus oil to a bowl of very hot water and breathe in the steam (be careful to avoid burning the delicate skin of your nose). You can also use a warm compress with drops of the oil on it and apply it to your face to get the same effect.

Additionally if a sore throat is one of your top complaints from your cough or cold, try gargling with warm salt water several times a day or try Hanna’s sore throat remedy, lovingly called “Napalm Bomb” by our staff and includes:
Garlic Tea

 

  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • dashes of red pepper flakes

Take the garlic and crush it with a fork dropping it in a tea cup, then add the lemon and hot pepper. Next, add the honey and hot water to the mix, stir and sip it while it’s still hot.

A runny nose is a common complaint associated with a cough or cold and wiping your nose continually can lead to raw or chapped skin. To have some relief from this try applying a mild oil to the area likeAura Cacia’s Grapeseed Oil with Vitamin E – the Vitamin E will help to heal the area while the Grapeseed oil will lubricate without irritating.

Keep in mind that there are a number of natural supplements to keep your body healthy and to help you overcome a cough or cold without using over-or-behind-the-counter treatments. Take a look at Kroeger Herb’s Olive Leaf to keep your immune system in balance before you contract a cough or cold. Check our cold and flu section of the shop for cough syrups, lozenges, and other great products that can ease the symptoms without harmful side effects.
