How to Cure Candida in 6 Steps
Hey, guys. Axe here, of functionalmedicine and founder of DrAxe . Today I'm going to share with you the exact diet, treatmentand supplements you need to take the clear Candida from your body. And this is what Ireally consider to be my SixStep Candida Cure Diet Protocol. And you're going to seeamazing results with this protocol. And let me say this first, what is Candida?Candida is the overgrowth of yeast and bad bacteria in your body and it can cause somemajor symptoms that you want to get rid of. And so some of the symptoms of Candida caninclude any type of fatigue issue. If you struggle with chronic fatigue or adrenal fatigue,those can be related to Candida.
Any type of leaky gut issue. Leaky gut isintestinal permeability, where proteins like gluten can leak through your gut and causeinflammation of your body. So if you have food sensitivities or if you have digestiveissues like gas and bloating, also if you have any problem related to the thyroid, thosecan be warning signs you have Candida. Also if you get yeast in your body. If younotice, let's say, yeast or whiteness on your tongue or if you ever get chronic yeast infectionsor coming down with the cold and flu often, those can be warning signs that you have Candida.And, of course, also with Candida any sort of other digestive issues, like irritablebowel syndrome or chronic diarrhea or constipation
or even acid reflux, those are warning signsthat you might have Candida. And last but not least, is a sluggish metabolism.If you aren't losing weight and burning fat like you know you should be, those are warningsigns you could have Candida, along with actually even bad breath and lack of detoxification.Those are some major warning signs. So here are the six things you need to do to eliminateCandida fast. Number one, you need to stop consuming somuch sugar. Now, I know that's obvious. That's something that I think most of us realizeis that sugar feeds yeast in your body. But again, you have got to get rid of processedsugar, fruit juices, any sort of added sugar
to any sort of product sweetener. Even mostpackaged products and fast foods are also high in sugar. Even things like pasta saucesand crackers, you'd be surprised, but sugar is added to almost everything. So again, eliminate especially the processedsugar out of your diet. As a replacement, I recommend using a little bit of Stevia,which is a nocalorie natural sweetener and then about one to three teaspoons a day ofmanuka honey. Okay? Those are the sweeteners you should be using if you have Candida. Number two. You need to eliminate grains fromyour diet. Why? Because grains turn into sugar
and they also tend to be more inflammatory.And so again, getting those grains out of your diet, especially wheat products and glutencontaininggrains, that's step number two. Instead, do a lot more vegetables and maybe some starchycarbs. Number three thing you have to do to clearCandida from you system, is support your spleen. Now, this is cuttingedge information thata lot of people don't realize. And this is a practice in Ancient China that is oftenused by acupuncturists today. But they have found that the number one cause of Candidais a weakened spleen. And so if you have spleen issues, and spleen is responsible for digestionof the body, producing red blood cells in
your system. And so the spleen is a very importantorgan. In order to support the spleen, there area couple things you need to do. But really the spleen is supported by starchy foods,especially squash, things like sweet potatoes, butternut squash, and also even doing certaintypes of beans like lentils and mung beans. So again, getting some of those good starchycarbs. And that's really where your sweetness shouldcome from. A little bit of butternut squash, acorn squash, foods like that that has thatmild sweetness. That's the only sweet you should be really getting in your diet. Again,with no processed sugar and, again, very low
Should I Eat Less Bread If I Have A Yeast Infection
Good day, there. Eric Bakker, naturopath,author of Candida Crusher with another frequently asked question. Should I not eat as much bread? Bread's not really an ideal food if you'retrying to recover from a yeast infection. But while I don't think it's a good food ifyou're trying to recover from any type of a digestive problem, if you're trying to loseweight, if you're trying to build your health, bread's not a very good food. In saying that,I'm talking about commercial bread. I think once your health is good, you've got gooddigestive health, your weight isn't a problem;
I can't see any problem with eating good qualitybread from time to time. But in my experience, many people eat toomuch bread. They have bread for breakfast. And when I'm talking about bread, I'm talkingabout bagels, donuts, cookies, all these manifestations of these farinaceous products; risen bread,in particular, with yeast and sugar in it is not a very good food if you're trying torecover from a yeast infection. It's very difficult for your digestion to really pickup when you eat this food quite regularly and continually. And a great way for you tolose weight is to cut bread out of your diet; just stop eating bread. Get rid of the potatoes,get rid of the bread, get rid of the Paska,
these are ideal ways for you to really buildgood health. So, can I eat bread again? Yes, you can eatbread again, but let's first get rid of that yeast infection. So I try and get people offrisen bread, commercial bread that's been risen with yeast. And I'm pretty strict withpeople in my diet, my Candida diet. You can read a lot more about my diet in Candida Crusher,in my book, Chapter 7, the first section there's over 100 pages on diet and nutrition. AndI write quite a lot about grains and breads and rice and quinoa and amaranth and theseother types of grains. There are alternatives to bread, so you don't really need to eatbread. That's assuming bread's made from wheat
of course. Bread can be made from many grains. Try not really to eat bread if you're tryingto overcome a yeast infection. And if you must eat bread, at least give your digestivesystem a good three or four weeks on the Candida Crusher diet and then when you do eat bread,as I talk about in my book, eat the flat bread or the mountain bread. It's only made froma good quality, whole meal, stone ground flour, some salt and some water. That's not a badoption. But my opinion would be to keep away from these foods for a long period of time;wheat in particular. I'm going to talk a lot more about that in other YouTube clips.
I'm going to dispel the myth on what I thinkis this gluten problem that a lot of people talk about. I don't really see it to be muchof a problem. I'll explain a lot more in other clips. So keep your eye out for other YouTubeclips on gluten and yeast and irritable bowel. Let's get back to the question. Should I noteat as much bread? No, you shouldn't. You should try and avoid bread for a long periodof time if you're really serious about getting rid of your yeast infection. So I hope that answers your question. Thankyou.
