I want to know how do you get rid of fungal infection in the groin, scrotum, penis and anus area. I know how to do the 6 Healing sounds as well as the Inner- smile to the five major organs. But I recall someone telling me that doing either of these two techniques will only circulate the infection to the rest of the body ata much faster rate and therefore it will never be healed. Can someone please help me and give me a simple solution because these are the only two techniques taht I know, as stated earlier.August 7, 2005 at 5:38 am #7074

Better to use some outer techniques to heal yourself from this ‘infection’.
Healing sounds are not the cure for every problem in your body, sometimes you just need common sense.
Stay away from the showers from gyms, fitness, sauna or wherever people shower. Even the places where you change clothes are not the right places to be for you right now.
These places are crowded with fungus and yeast and as you are infected already it is better to heal first. Your skin is very volunerable and it will only become worse if you keep on going to these places.
Keep your pelvic area dry, never use the same towel but change it after every use.
Take sun baths, walk in your own space without pants or wear not thight
ones when going outside. Give your pelvic area, air.
Avoid eating cheese and anything with yeast in it, just for now.
You can use etheric oils one that is good is red thyme ( I am not sure if this translation into English is correct). Don’t put it pure on your skin but use a basic oil and put some drops of the etheric oil in it. Ask help where you buy it.
Or just buy yourself a good skin creme, go to your pharmacy. I am not familiar with American products but someone on this forum can give you some advice other than some laughing and stupid nonsense. Ignore this, not worth taking this to heart.
And sure keep on smiling to your ‘wounded’ area, it surely needs your attention.
You are welcome with your questions.August 7, 2005 at 12:06 pm #7078
Actually getting a yeast infection is due to an inbalance in your body. Can also be received sexually but men usually are not so succeptible. After I did a 40 day cleans with drinking just lemon juice, maple syrup and water my body became so unbalanced that yeast invaded it. I made it too clean. A thing to remember when doing fasts and cleanses I think. Once you cleanse your system , well, you then have to eat very organic and be very attentive as your system is very aware of what you put into it. Me, well I took the other method. I pretty much dirtied it up again so that the system can accept non-organic food. I can’t afford vegetables nor meats that are “organic”. We do have to live within our means and with what is put before us and I am neither monk nor nun so I am expected to mix with people and community. Hard to do when one is eating a thimble of food each day. I basically said “screw that”.
Anyways, I have done some research on this and basically have asked on this forum about such stuff also and do not get any really helpful answers other than the one Plato gave me a few days back that is to increase immune sytem, etc. using herbs and wolfberrys. He said the herbs are not expensive and that an electrifying machine for blood is good to get rid of parasites. (can buy on EBAY for less than $100). Well I haven’t started any of that — basically I have NO money. It will have to wait till I do. Raising 3 kids nowadays is NOT cheap. Especially 3 older kids. Anyways somethings you can do to help out is (and this is for women too re baths)
1. Do not have baths. Increases heat, heat breeds yeast.
2. Someone recommended either ironing or microwaving your underwear as just plain laundering does not always get rid of the yeast and of course you re infect yourself as soon as you put on your underwear.
3. No stress – stress leads to strain on immune system which allows yeast to bread (no stress for me right now is pretty much impossible – I am expecting a sever heart attack any day to put me out of my misery, ha, ha)
4. Cut back or delete sugars, cheese, breads, etc. that have yeast and anything with vinegar.
5. I have been taking coconut oil, (virgin – ha, ha). You are supposed to begin with 1/2 tsp or so and increase it to 1-2 TBSP. Do not start with 2 TBSP or you will make yourself sick. Some people have excellent results with this. The coconut oil chemical makeup is supposed to actually dissolve the outer shell of the yeast organism and destroys it. You can look up coconut oil on the web for more info.
6. Sleeping with no underwear is good and going commando as often as you can is also good. (as of interest when I did a “sweat” with a native female elder she had mentioned that it is good for women to wear skirts or dresses so that their vagina is open to the earth to receive healing and noursihment – I understand what she meant by that … now and I believe this to be very good advice. I think that I will eventually take her up on that advice)
7. Yeast infections do not really hurt us unless allowed to get WAY out of hand. They can then infect our intestines big time and can do a bit of damage. Western doctors cn give you a one shot pill to swallow to supposedly get rid of the yeast, which it will but only for a few days or weeks and then unless you balance your body it comes right back.
I am going to continue doing what I am doing as above, well I am eating sugar again – to hell with it, but the others I am practising. But I am also going to try Plato’s advice and recipe. Should work I think. Even though he does visit Porno Conventions he seems to know a bit about the herbs, etc.
As for energy work, I think that a general practice of neigong that strengthens the immune system and body would be best myself. Maybe after starting on the recipe.
And you know what, if you did get the yeast infection sexually don’t worry about it, you are lucky it is just a yeast infection. One should be much more careful, it could very well be something more serious next time and perhaps using a condom is a good idea — all the time, especially now so you do not give someone else such discomfort but all the time. Curing HIV is not so easy and the effects are much more deadly.
However also to note … I am not a doctor and I do not think that most on this forum are doctors either. So take any suggestions as that .. only suggestions. It is always good to pair these with a western doctor’s visit. Always better to be safe than sorry BECAUSE, there are some sexually transmitted diseases that mask themselves as yeast infection and are in fact something a little more serious that may need a little penicillin to clean up. Don’t mess around with self diagnosis.
Other than that, hey that’s life.

Another very important tip, if you shave your pubic hair STOP doing it, because it causes tiny injuries for yeast/fungi to come in, combine it with sweat, damp and high temperature, et voilà, great combination. if you don’t like hair, cut it short untill healed.
And of course i didn’t meant a basic skin creme but one that is pharmaceutical created for these kind of infections, just to make sure you understand it correct.August 7, 2005 at 2:38 pm #7082
I agree with much of what has been posted.
Continue with healing sounds and inner smile. It is unlikely that they alone will solve your issue quickly.
Agree with getting diagnostic help from a physician.
Agree with anti fungal creme approach as well.
Also, an important point to add. Yeast overgrowth can be counteracted with putting more “friendly flora” into your digestive system. You may have heard of Acidophilus, which is commonly put into milk and often present in quality natural yogurt. I recommend getting yourself a Full spectrum “Probiotic” which is a supplement containing acidophilus and several other probiotics.
Any good health food store or supplement store should carry this. PB8 is one brand name which comes to mind. Jarrow brand has a good one too. I don’t know where you live – USA or???, but if you don’t have access to a good natural food store, or a supermarket with a natural food/supplement section you can definitely find this kind of thing on the internet. I would recommend starting with double the recommended dose for the first week.
Note, if you have taken antibiotics recently they can lead to a crash of your “friendly” microflora such as acidophilus and others. So if you have now, or do in the future have to take a course of antibiotics it is a really good idea to follow up with a course of Probiotics such as I am suggesting afterwords.
Good quality yogurt can be a source for some probiotics, but I don’t recommend them because I think there are many folks with Dairy issues to contend with, myself among them. Also, many of the yogurts out there that claim to have acidophilus have a very low level, and/or they also are blended with fruit and sugars which will feed the yeast and make the acidophilus mostly irrelevant. If you want to add a yogurt to your diet, make sure it is plain yogurt. Pavel’s and Nancy’s yogurt are two of my favorites as far as quality goes. Again, I don’t know where you live, and these may not be widely available outside the western US.
Herbs, chikung and meditation to boost your immune system are good ideas, but are better suited,I think at this point, to keeping you from having a recurrence and for supporting what you are healing now.
As mentioned before, the first step in deep practice of chi kung/alchemy is to get your vehicle in top running order. Or as Ron Teegaurden of Dragon herbs says, to achieve “Radiant Health”. Sounds nice, I’m not sure any of us are there yet 🙂

I want to say thank you to those who gave me great info on how to approach this problem. I want to say that I did go see a western medical doctor and then I was referred to a Dermatologist who said that I do have a fungal infection in my groin area which did spread to my perineum and then my anus. So now I will be taking the proper medicine needed as well as herbs.
Now here is what I need to know because it has been plaguing me for quite a while now. I do know how to do the Six Healing Sounds followed by the Inner-Smile for the major organs. When I found out about the infection I stopped with the meditation because I was told by someone that the meditations would only circulate the infection throughout the body. Furthermore, I had glanced through the book: “Tree Of Life”- Qi Gong, Volume 1: Balancing Heaven and Earth by Ra Un Nefer Amen, Hon. D.D., and in the back of the book they have some Purification and Tonification Exercises. Among them I see the Healing sound Exercises for the major organs and it also said in the beginning of each exercise: : This exercise should not be performed if you have a bacterial infection, broken bones, are on your menses, or are pregnant. So this is the reason why I had stopped doing the Six Healing Sounds followed by the Inner-Smile for the major organs. Furthermore I am familiar with circulating the Microcosmic Orbit but I am not good at it yet. It would take me about an hour or so to complete the circulation. Now I was doing it for a while last year. One of the reasons why I was doing it was because I wanted to circulate the positive energy through my system. The other reason was because my hair is thinning and balding and as I did this Orbit Technique coupled with doing an Inner-Smile to my Gall Bladder (Which has the circuitous routes through the scalp) my hair slowly but surely began growing back. I proved it to myself twice that it actually works. But now I am miserable becasue I feel that If I do the Orbit Technique The fungal Infection could spread all over my body. And so becuse I stopped with the technique my scalp is thinning more so now than ever. The same thing with the Six Healing Sounds and the Inner-Smile, I stopped for fear that I would end up spreading the infection all over my body. Could someone please clear this up for me. Because it has been a long time since I have meditated and I really want to do the Six Healing Sounds, The Inner-Smile and The Microcosmic Orbit( For my scalp- I AM MISERABLE WITH MY HAIR THINNING OUT). I hope that I don’t have to wait for my fungal infection to clear up because I want to resume meditation ASAP. I shouldn’t have to wait right ? Somebody please inform me !August 9, 2005 at 8:27 pm #7086
I have submitted a couple of new questions under the same title: “How do you heal yourself of a fungal and yeast infection… ?” I desperately hope that I can get a few answers. I also desperately hope that the answers will safely and logically be in my favor so that I can resume the Six Healing Sounds, Inner-Smile, and the Microcosmic Orbit even though I have the infection present inside me. Please refer to the previous submission for the full layout of my questions. Thank you, I apreciate the time that you take to help me.August 9, 2005 at 9:30 pm #7088
Take everything I say with care as I am not trained in medicine and am not a HealingTao teacher.
I think that it is suggested to not perform these meditations while suffering a bacterial infection, because you might spread an energy of infection through your body.
However, since the energy is at the surface, if your meditation was deep, then it would be unlikely you would spread that energy.
Problem: beginning meditators tend to meditate at the surface of being, and tend to “do” the meditation, rather than just follow the healing energies that are present.
Solution: do the inner smile…slowly…connecting clearly to a healing energy…deeply in your being…always connected deeply with your lower tan tien. You should not have a goal of how much of your body you will reach with the inner smile.
Now, maybe someone who knows more will say that you can do the other meditations no problem. But, based on my 7 years of futzing around with these meditations, I suggest the above as safe.

I am off to the Swiss mountains to breath some fresh air, I will take another look when I arrived there and have myself settled…talk to you later, nice day to you

I will state to you with confidence that in my opinion there is no reason whatsoever to stop doing Inner smile and six healing sounds under the conditions you have described.
Since your skin is the most affected by symptoms I suggest emphasis be placed upon Lung sound. Breath in white light into the lungs and see it radiate out through the whole body. Breath out the healing sound and see any dark,cloudy stuck energy flow out of the lungs and also flow from your body and into the earth. During resting phase see the whole body radiant with white light.
Regarding Inner smile meditation. You should practice this regularly. Smile to all parts of yourself (I will not rehash the whole meditation here). But also, as mentioned before, smile to your skin and also infected areas of your skin. Universal acceptance is the key to the inner smile. Accept your condition in order to bring it more into the light of consciousness and thereby bring up any hidden aspects which may be creating resistance to the healing process.
I don’t know the origin of the material which warns against circulating energy in the channels. Since you seem to have a strong misgiving about energy circulation under your current circumstances, perhaps it would be better to refrain from Micro orbit circulation at this point, since your mind can have and effect on your condition based upon the strong expectation of complications you have expressed repeatedly here. The inner smile and six healing sounds will be good practice to achieve a more smooth M.O. circulation in the future. You can go deep and long into both six healing sounds and inner smile. There is no limit.
I have experience doing just one healing sound for long periods of time with long rest/meditation phase in between sounds. A few times while doing this I have experienced an extreme slowdown, almost cessation of breathing and very deep relaxation, just from doing the sounds. Also, working on the front channel with the inner smile is a very important step to releasing tension which will make circulation of energy through the front channel more easy.
Finally, I wonder what medication you are taking. If an anti fungal please pay attention to liver sound and inner smile for the liver to help it in it’s work detoxing from the medicine. Don’t forget the advice about acquiring and using Probiotics. This is an essential part in restoring a proper balance to your internal flora. Imbalance of which resulted in this yeast infection.
