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
AntiFungal Diet for Cancer Prevention Roby Mitchell
Ty Bollinger: You've talked about the importanceof the environment for cancer cells to be able to revert back intonormal cells. So what is an optimal diet that you couldrecommend people eat just generalities, of course, to make that environment in the bodyso that it would not be a good host for cancer cells,so that it would be a good host for normal cells and itwould keep cancer at bay? What would be a diet that youâ€”a general diet that you couldrecommend that would keep the immune system strong andprevent cancer?
Roby Mitchell: So when I started workingwith Wright, one of the things that I have been involved withwas treating people for the fungal overgrowth that happens in our body. And the thing thatI started to realizeâ€”one of the things that I realizedyears before that was that the common denominator of any of thesenatural herbal plant, exotic fruit, super food remedies that work, the common denominatorwith them was that they had some powerful antifungal in them,right, and that's what garlic, that's with aspirin, that's with thesepolyphenolic compounds in the skin of red
grapes, the resveratrol. So I went into thelab and I started investigating, well, which foods are the highestin theseâ€”or not necessarily which foods are the highest, butwhich foods had the most impact on controlling candida overgrowth. And so I set up Petridishes right there in the lab. And we inoculated them with candida.And then we just went about inoculating them then with extracts from different fruits andvegetables and so forth to see which ones made the biggest, what we call,zone of exclusion in the Petri dish, right? And so we had the Petri control down herewith a medication call
Diflucan that we know kills yeast, right.And so we knew that it was going to leave a big clear space in there,right, where it didn't allow yeast to grow. And then down here we have just water, right.And so that plate just grew white with yeast overgrowth because therewas nothing to inhibit it. And then all these other plates I wasable to see, you know, which ones worked better or worse at keeping yeast under control. Sowith that, that was the spring board for what is now calledthe BALI eating planâ€”BALI. And BALI's standing forâ€”that's anacronym for basic antioxidantantifungal,
and then low insulin.So we want toâ€”and regardless of the name that you call it, right, whether its the Gersontherapy or the paleo diet or Mediterranean diet or whatever, whatis going to work as far as keeping cells out of an environmentthat incents them to pleomorph into cancer cells is one that keeps the yeast under control,right. It keeps you from developing fungal overgrowth becausewhen that fungus gets up to a certain level then your immunesystem is going to response with the weapons of mass destruction and its going to createa toxic environment
and your cells are going to cough and chokeand they're going to start changing into a cellular form that willallow them to survive that toxic environment. So again, regardless of what you'd callit, the food that you eat has to be food that keeps fungal growth undercontrol and doesn't throw gasoline on the fire. So when we eatfoods that have, what we call, a high glycemic index, right, so the grains and sugars, right,in corn, wheat, rice, those things, then we're creating an environment,right, that promotes fungal overgrowth, right, and that'sgoing to cause inflammation and that's going
