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
Why Many Candida Patients NEVER Recover Fully
Thanks for checking out my tutorial. We're goingto talk today about why many people never fully recover from a Candida yeast infection.There are many different reasons, and I'm going to read a little bit out of my bookin a minute to explain to you the different types of reasons why many people never fullyrecover. Some people are on the wrong track. Some peopleare misdiagnosed. But I think one of the main reasons for failure of recovery is similarto one of the main reasons for failure to thrive in a relationship, personal or professional.Failure to thrive in a business. Failure to achieve anything worthwhile in life. And oneof the biggest things is stickability or persistence,
hanging in there with treatment, and finetuningthings along the way. Improving and then realizing what makes you improve and what doesn't makeyou improve. Obviously, doing more of what is conducive toward improvement and doingless of what's conducive toward making you feel bad or fail.That's why I never believe in diets. I think they're all crap, most diets, because howcan someone formulate a very specific, defined diet just for you. It's a load of crap. Thediet is something you define and fine tune and perfect over time. It's like your garden.I can't give you an idea on how your garden is going to look. It's something you createand design yourself. It's like your life.
You create your own life based on what youthink is right for you. Your belief systems. Your education. Your experiences. We can'ttell people what to do. They have to decide for themselves what's right or wrong for them.Here are some of the key reasons why many people with a yeast infection end up withvaried outcomes. This is out of my book, Candida Crusher.The person may be misdiagnosed or treated for another condition. This is very common.Many people I see with a chronic yeast infection have been misdiagnosed and told they've gotirritable bowel syndrome, for example, so they'll be put on a specific kind of dietby dieticians who think this is the right
way to go. Some people think everything canbe cured by diet. YouTube and the internet are full of these diet gurus or the diet police.You can't eat gluten. You can't eat this. You can't eat that.The person may have been treated but has relapsed due to poor follow up. This is quite common,too. Many people in the natural medicine business are just as guilty of this as a lot of otherhealth care professionals, the conventional ones. They'll treat someone, but the personwill relapse and then they'll get treated for something else, although the follow upwill be poor. The person won't get called up or come back to the , and that personwill hop from one practitioner to another.
The person aggravated after the first treatmentand never came back. This is quite common, too. People get treatment. They get maybea Herxheimer reaction or feel bad and they never come back. They think that the treatmenthas made them feel sick. They go and see another .The person did not follow the plan effectively or gave up on the diet too soon. This is oneof the most common reasons for failure is people giving up. People give up in life waytoo easy. Persistence breaks resistance, is my saying. You have to persist with things.You have to continue on and continue on and continue on until you get what you want. Anythingworthwhile in life is worth hanging in there
for.The person thought they could beat a yeast infection with supplements alone. What a loadof crap. You can't do this. You can't just take a pill and fix your ill. You've got tomake major changes to your diet and your lifestyle. Supplements are the icing on the cake. They'renot the actual cake itself. It's the same with diet. You will not beat Candida withdiet alone. You will not beat Candida with lifestyle alone. You need to beat it witha combination of different events. The person did not stop drinking alcohol entirelyno matter how little consumed. This is something I commonly see with people is they don't giveup drinking. They think, quot;Oh, well, one glass
