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 Acidophilus Good For Candida
Greetings. It's Eric Bakker, naturopath fromNew Zealand, author of Candida Crusher and formulator of the Canxida range of dietarysupplements. Thanks for checking out this tutorial today. Today, we're going to talk aboutacidophilus, lactobacillus acidophilus, in particular, a very beneficial strain of bacteria.I've got an email here from a guy called Mark in Ontario, Canada, asking me if lactobacillusis good for Candida in general. It's very, very good using lactobacillus, Mark.It's a very good idea to use a probiotic when you have got a yeast infection. Beneficialbacteria are one of our most powerful defense mechanisms in terms of keeping our gut inbalance, in really good shape. And there are
different strains of beneficial bacteria thatwe're not really going to go into on this tutorial, but I think that including a fermentedand cultured food is a very clever idea to incorporate into your diet on a regular basis.But even more important is to take good probiotics at least once, if not twice, per day on anextended basis to help to repopulate your gut with very beneficial bacteria.Candida are normally occurring organisms in the digestive system of many people and alsoin the vaginal area of women. Some estimates are 20 to 30 percent of women have this normallyoccurring and a lot of men have got Candida growing in different parts of their body aswell, which is a normal organism. But however,
it's when the balance becomes tipped. Whenthe Candida gain the upper hand and they really take off. That's when we start to get problems.You could liken the lactobacillus species to being like the police of the digestivesystem. They will keep the bad guys in check. They secrete various kinds of chemicals todo that. They produce something called hydrogen peroxide and they secrete acidophilin anddifferent chemicals with funny names that help to keep these bad guys around them ina correct kind of balance. When the numbers of lactobacillus drop off, we start to getproblems because we're going to get bacteria and potentially yeasts like Candida albicansand various other Candida species that can
start getting the upper hand and that's notwhat we want. Because this can create a huge shift in our gut and create a lot of problemswith many other parts of the body. By consuming a good yogurt, for example. Idid a tutorial recently on a yogurt called Activia by a company called Danone. That's not a badyogurt; however, it's got predominantly bifida bacteria in it. So taking a good probiotic,Mark, I think is worth mentioning. Something that contains multiple strains of lactobacillusis a very good idea. Lactobacillus plantarum or lactobacillus rhamnosus are two of thebetter lactobacillus strains to have in your digestive system on a daily basis for severalmonths to help to counter Candida.
These in particular are very good strainsbecause they boost lots of different aspects of your immune function. It's also importantto make sure that your probiotic contains the bifida bacteria as well, preferably oneor two strains. Having a lacto and bifida high quality capsule with a dosage of at least10 billion per cap, if not more, is a clever idea long term to seed the gut, to put thebacteria in there and then, again, to eat the right kind of foods to make sure thatwe're going to feed these guys up. Mark, just check out my Canxida Restore. It'sa product I think you'll like. I've designed this product and put it in a very specialcapsule that will only open up inside the
small intestine, so it's going to make surethat implantation takes place in the right area. A very easy to take capsule and highlyeffective. To answer your question is lactobacillus acidophilusgood for Candida. It's very, very good to have. Most people I do stool testing on, infact, have got low levels of these bacteria. So by taking a probiotic and eating yogurton a regular basis, you're going to ensure that you're going to get sufficient amountsover a period of time. Thank you for your question, Mark.
Why I Recommend Lactobacillus Acidophilus DDS 1
Hi there. It's Eric Bakker, naturopath fromNew Zealand, author of Candida Crusher, and the formulator of Canxida, the Canxida rangeof dietary supplements. You may be familiar with Canxida Remove. I've just created CanxidaRestore. Canxida Restore contains seven of the best enzymes I could find for people withgut problems and yeast infections, but also small intestinal bowel overgrowth, and allkinds of gut disorders. It also contains the six best beneficial bacteria, including lactobacillusacidophilus DDS 1, which I'm going to speak about today.The acidophilus DDS 1, the Department of Dairy Science 1, is probably one of the best researchedof all the lactobacilli beneficial bacteria.
Khem Shahani spent over 20 years studyingthis one beneficial lactobacillus, lactic acid loving, beneficial bacteria. Khem hashis roots in food science. Khem studied the effect of bacteria on food many, many yearsago in the US, and probably was one of the world's leading researchers in his day andprobably still is today for lactobacillus acidophilus.The DDS 1 is a human strain of beneficial bacteria. It's the only one that was awardeda patent for its resistance to antibiotics. It's probably the only lactobacillus thathas a resistance to antibiotics, which is very important for you to remember if you'retaking antibiotics. This is not going to be
killing off or affecting this lactobacillusacidophilus. There are over 200 research papers that have been published on lactobacillusacidophilus DDS 1, so ranking it probably one of the most important of all lactobacillusacidophilus probiotics that you can take. And probably the only one you seriously wantto take if you're interested in the science base of beneficial bacteria and the researchthat exists. There are several reasons why lactobacillusacidophilus is so important for the body. One of the most important ones is it helpsthe body produce lots of B vitamins. Folic acid production, B vitamin production occurswith very good levels of lactobacillus in
the stool. A three or four plus is what wewould find in your stool report if you had high levels of lactobacillus acidophilus.The B vitamins are very beneficial for carbohydrate metabolism and energy production. Most peoplewho are tired have got very low levels of lactobacillus acidophilus. Most people withcancers have got very low folate levels. By having these beneficial bacteria, you're goingto dramatically reduce your chances of developing fatigue, cancers, and many different typesof diseases for that reason. Acidophilin is a type of chemical producedby these bacteria. It's a very powerful antibiotic that has been shown to be effective on over23 different types of pathogenic bacteria
alone. It's more potent than tobramycin, gentamycin;many different types of antibiotics don't even come near the strength of the acidophilinproduced by these particular bacteria. Again, why would you want to take antibiotics whenyou can have beneficial bacteria that actually produce several types of antibiotics themselves?It's crazy. Those are two powerful reasons. The third reason is the production of enzymes.Protease, lipase, lactase enzymes are produced by lactobacillus that helps to break downfood in your gut, so you need to break it down with your teeth first, of course. Themacro particles break them down to small particles and then the micro particles will get reducedto virtually nothing by bacteria that produce
enzymes. You need lots of enzymes to breakfood down properly. That's why when I developed Canxida RestoreI put lots of enzymes in there to greatly assist in that process. I've got several enzymesthat help break down different types of carbohydrates, a few that break down protein and fat, sovery, very important to have lots of enzymes at the same time as the lactobacillus specieswhen you're starting out trying to restore your gut. That product I developed is calledCanxida Restore. Look out for it at Canxida . Thanks for tuning in.
