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
Is It Candida DieOff Or Is It An Aggravation
Greetings. New Zealand naturopath, Eric Bakker,author of Candida Crusher, formulator of the Canxida range of supplements. Thanks for checkingout my tutorial. Today, we're going to talk about die off.Are you experiencing die off or what we call Herxheimer Reaction or are you experiencingaggravation? Let's just explain a little bit. I'm going to read some out of my book andthen I'm going to give you a little bit of an explanation alongside. Many people getconfused. When they feel worse as they start a Candida treatment or they push harder, theyimmediately say, quot;I'm getting die off. I'm getting die off. That's what I read online.That's what it is. Can't be anything else.quot;
Let me explain.There are many types of aggravations a person may experience who comes to seek help of ahealth care professional. Some people come in with one or several pharmaceutical druginduced side effects. Particularly after an antibiotic. Others experience reactions whenthey stop taking drugs or changing brands of drugs or supplements. Some people experiencestrong reactions when they take a supplement or cut the dosage back or switch to anothersupplement or combine two dietary supplements together.Many people can potentially develop an aggravation at the beginning of natural medicine treatmentand this can be quite discouraging for some
people. Those who are used to conventionalwestern medical treatment find the concept of feeling worse before you feel better, abit disturbing, and some find it even completely wacky and having the quot;luluquot; factor like beingreally stupid. Particularly those who strongly adhere to the tenets of modern medicine.Modern medicine believes that a diagnosis must first be made before treatment and thenthe treatment is usually in the form of a drug that supposedly cures the complaint byeradicating the symptoms. What a load of crap! You can't cure a fricking complaint by gettingrid of a symptom any more than you can cure serious bankruptcy by giving a credit cardto someone. You'd have to be nuts in the head
to think about that. Getting rid of a symptomdoes not equate to curing a disease. Have a look at the World Health Organization'sdefinition of what real health means. It doesn't mean an absence of symptoms. It means feelingtotally flaming awesome, spiritually, psychologically, emotionally, structurally, on many differentlevels having amazing health. That to me is really good health. Not just quot;Oh, my headache'sgone. I must be in really good health.quot; That's not good health at all. Western medicine'sidea of what good health means is a little bit different from what people like me believethe concept of good health really means. Aggravations can come about for many differentreasons and here are six examples of common
reactions I see with patients.Number one ï¿½ drug side effects that we call iatrogenic disease.Number two ï¿½ coming off any medications or detoxing from pharmaceutical drugs. Italso means coming off any dietary supplements or increasing dosages or swapping brands asI mentioned. Number three ï¿½ a change in diet after commencingtreatment. Very common. If you make dietary changes, it's not die off at all. Many peoplehave this. They contact me. quot;I'm getting terrible die off. What's wrong with me? Oh, by theway, I've stopped drinking all alcohol. I don't drink caffeine anymore. I've got antigluten,anti this, anti this, anti that and I feel
like crap. What's wrong with me? Must be dieoff.quot; No. It's not die off. It's because you made way too many changes way too quick. It'snot a good thing to do. If you first start an exercise program and you go to a gym, wouldyou spend four hours in the gym doing 300 different exercises and then two days later,quot;Oh, my god. I'm so sore. Why am I so sore? It shouldn't be like this. I only spent fourhours in the gym the other day. I should have no pain in my body.quot;Well, if you think about it, it's pretty logical isn't it? If you're going to make any kindof change, particularly when you get to your 40s or 50s or 60s, you need to do it a littlebit more slowly than if you're a teenager.
How To Minimise Aggravations With Candida Treatment And Recovery
Thanks for tuning into my tutorial again. Andthank you also for looking at my Candida Crusher YouTube channel. I'm very pleased with allthe amazing comments I've been receiving on my channel, and it's for people like you outthere that I make these tutorials. If I can help people out and give them some relief, showthem some shortcuts to recovery from a yeast infection, that's the whole aim of this channel.I'm going to read a little bit out of my book, Candida Crusher, about aggravations and howto minimize them. This might give you a little bit of an insight that you don't have to feelbad with treatment. There are many different types of aggravationspeople experience who come to seek the help
of a health care professional. Some peoplecome in with one or several pharmaceutical druginduced side effects such as after anantibiotic. Others experience a reaction when they stop taking a drug or switch brands ofdrugs. Many people can potentially develop aggravations at the beginning of natural therapytreatment, and this can be quite discouraging for some people. Those who are used to conventionalmedicine find the concept of feeling worse before you feel better a bit disturbing andsome find it even a bit crazy. Particularly those who strongly adhere to the tenets ofmodern medicine. Modern medicine believes that a diagnosis must first come before thetreatment, and the treatment is usually in
the form of a drug. It supposedly cures thecomplaint by way of eradicating the symptom. Aggravations can come about from several differentreasons and here are six examples of common reactions that I see regularly occurring withpatients. 1. The drug side effects that we call iatrogenicdisease. Every day in my , I see patients coming in with druginduced side effects.I had a lady today taking the oral contraceptive pill with headaches. A drug side effect. Iget patients in with constipation or diarrhea from taking painkilling medications. I getpatients who take sleeping pills that get all sorts of drowsiness during the day. Iget patients taking antihistamines that get
Vitamin B12 deficiencies. The list goes onand on. We get patients taking drugs to reduce cholesterol with CoQ10 deficiencies. The listgoes on and on and on. Every drug has a side effect. Side effects can be horrific for patientsand we call druginduced disease iatrogenic disease.2. Coming off any medications or detoxifying from pharmaceutical drugs. Many people startnatural treatment and stop drugs. This can make them very sick if they stop too quickly.Coming off a drug or dropping a drug in favor of a natural treatment can create strong symptoms,and these can be seen as a reaction to treatment. When, in fact, they're detoxifying reactions.3. A change in diet after commencing treatment.
Many people start treatment and go on thesecrazy diets, these weird ass diets. They'll start drinking lots and lots of fruit juiceor vegetable juice. They'll ditch all the carbohydrates. They'll ditch gluten. They'llditch dairy. They'll ditch this. They'll start making major radical changes to their diet.They'll stop all alcohol, all coffee. They'll go on this health kick, and they feel terrible.And then they wonder whether it's all worth it. And the will say, quot;Well, what doyou expect? You went over to the witch s instead of me. Of course, you're feeling bad.quot;Don't make change quickly. Change needs to happen slowly. It needs to become a permanenthabit for you. They say it takes two or three
weeks for a habit to become a permanent thing,so go very slowly with the changes you make. Don't do anything quick.4. Combining several different treatments, drugs and dietary supplements all at the sametime. This is madness. You can't do that. You need to follow one treatment at a time.Don't follow two or three treatments at the same time. You can combine pharmaceuticalswith natural medicines, but you need to see someone who is very expert at understandingthis concept and who knows what's going to clash, what the side effects from things couldbe, what a detox reaction is going to be. Some medicines just don't work well with somenatural medicines, so you need to be careful
