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
Starchy Carbs and Some Fruits May Not Aggravate If You Try This Trick
Greetings. It's Eric Bakker back to you again.New Zealand naturopath. Author of Candida Crusher. Thanks for coming back and checkingout my tutorial. I'm going to talk about grains and starchy foods today. I don't know howmany tutorials I've seen. How many blogs I've looked at and how many people I've talkedto who think all grains are completely unacceptable on the yeast infection diet. They think youcan't eat bread. You can't eat potatoes. You can't eat starchy foods. That somehow thesefoods are toxic. They make you sick. They may turn you into some sort of weirdo or youturn into a Frankenstein overnight. Some sort of crazy stuff like that.But I can tell you now, this is a load of
crap. I've learned from experience that youneed to try these things for yourself because one size doesn't fit all. By heating and modifyingthe starch, it can change the way that the gut reacts to the starch. It can change howit ferments the starch in the bowel, how it breaks it down, how it absorbs it. I learnedthis a long time ago with bananas. I think in New York they say bananas.We know that bananas are not a great thing to eat with Candida. But I can tell you now,green bananas are usually perfectly fine. If you get a plantain banana or the greenones, you might have seen them sometimes at the markets. Go to the markets where the Samoans,Hawaiians or the Tongan people go to, the
big people, the wonderful people with greatsmiles and play good music. Those people often eat Taro and yams and green bananas and fish.The green bananas tend to be okay with Candida, especially if they're cooked in coconut milkand I've not found that to be a problem with a lot of people. So that blows your theoryright out of the water. You can't have bananas with a yeast infection.But if you try to have a yellow banana, the ones grown in Mexico or Guatemala, the tropics,that go really yellow and brown, they can make you feel like crap. You can get bloating,gas and headaches out of those. They can also create strong histamine like reactions inthe body. Some people can develop strong allergies
toward bananas, depending on the stage ofripeness when they're eating them. And that depends a lot on the sugar content and chemicalcontent. Because there are lots of different chemicals in fruits and vegetables.Cornell University did research on this years ago, looking at fruits and vegetables andthe chemical contents and how they affect humans. Any kind of vegetable or fruit willaffect you different depending on the stage of ripeness, i.e., how it's picked when youeat it. And also how it's processed in terms of heat. When you read something on a specificcarbohydrate diet, SCD, for example, book or the Gaps books when they say, quot;You can'teat this. You can't eat that.quot; You need to
sort of look at it and think, quot;Well, whatabout if I put chick peas in the pressure cooker? What about if I bake potatoes at ahigh temperature? How will they sit with my tummy?quot; Lots and lots of people have comeback to me and said quot;Eric, that's funny. When I pressure cook chick peas, I can eat themperfectly well. But when I boil them and add hummus, I had gas like an elephant. I wasfarting the whole day like bull frog.quot; That could be your problem.If you've got a lot of gas because of a starchy food, think how it was cooked. Was it warmwhen you ate it? Was it cold when you ate it? How was it modified by heat? How was itcooked? If it was a fruit, at what stage of
ripeness was it picked? How was it prepared?That's a very interesting food for thought for you, so think about those things. Beforeyou discard a food immediately because it's starchy or a grain, try to modify it. Seewhat happens to the tummy. See what the bowel motion's like. See what the gas is like. Seewhat the discomfort is like and you might be pleasantly surprised. It might be perfectlyokay. Thanks for checking out my tutorial.

Is Pupmkin OK On The Candida Diet
Greetings. Eric Bakker, naturopath from NewZealand, author of Candida Crusher, formulator of the Canxida range of products. It's goodto be back. Thanks for tuning in. We're going to talk about pumpkin today, so those big,orange things that people like to carve faces in at Halloween. Pumpkin soup is awesome.We're in winter now in New Zealand and I really like pumpkin soup. But should you have iton the Candida diet or not? If so, when can you have it? When should you avoid it?Pumpkin is a starchy carbohydrate, not unlike squash. Not unlike things like sweet corn.There are many different kinds of starchy carbohydrate like this. Sweet potato, youcould consider a bit like that. They're quite
sweet. People like them. When they cut outa lot of sugars from their diet, they're drawn to starchy carbs.When should you have them? When should you avoid them? Well, it really depends on you.If you're a bloaty or farty person, if you've got lots of gut issues, you need to be carefulwith these sweet carbs, especially when you start to make diet changes and you want toeradicate a yeast infection or clear up SIBO or parasites. I recommend that initially youdo an assessment, like a stool test to assess what's going on in your gut. I also recommendthat you clean your diet up in general. So if you currently are eating pumpkin and youwant to get rid of Candida, first get rid
of the general crap out of the diet, the stuffthat you know you need to avoid like chocolate, like alcohol, like sugars, junk food, takeaway foods in general. Start cooking at home meals from scratch. Make home cooked mealslike your grandparents probably made. These are basic things that you need to start doingbefore you just chop and change things out of your diet.When you do all these kind of things, let's see what your digestion is like then becauseyou may not need to take pumpkin out of your diet right up front. Be careful about anyonewho tells you to make dramatic lifestyle and diet changes very quick, so you can quicklyrecover. You need to avoid people like that.
It's almost like they're trying to convertyou or something like brainwash you religiously or something, so be careful. You need to makechange slowly. The bacteria in your gut will not like it when you make massive changesvery quickly. Any more than your muscles won't like it when you start going on a massiveexercise program. If your tells you to lose a few pounds and exercise, you'renot going to join the gym the following week and then start training three hours a dayand then do half marathons within a month. Only idiots do stuff like that. To my mind,only idiots are the ones who make massive overnight diet changes. You don't do it. Youmake slow change. I've said this a hundred
times on my tutorials before. Never make veryquick changes with your diet. Some people have too much pumpkin in theirdiet. In those cases, they may need to cut pumpkin consumption back. But in my mind,most people don't consume large amounts of pumpkin every day all the time. Pumpkin isa wonderful food. I really like the butternut pumpkins like the long ones that have go thenice female shape about them. The tall ones, they got that creamy colored skin. I peelthem and cook those in a pan with a bit of butter, with a bit of pepper in there andthen just basically cream that up. You can actually put rice milk with it, oat milk withit. You can put cow's milk with it and then
blend that up. It's very, very nice. It makesa beautiful soup. If you've got a lot of gut issues and youare eating pumpkin, it may pay for you to cut back on squash or pumpkin or sweet cornright up front. Just halve the amount that you're having and see if that makes a differencein your life. If you've got major gut issues, irritable bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel,done a stool test and found that you've got loads of Candida that cultured, you've gotlow levels of beneficial bacteria or if you've got just a serious gut problem in general,work toward over about a sixweek period to eliminate the starchy vegetables completelyfrom your diet. All the starchy vegetables,
