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
Candida Causes Symptoms Treatment by Candida Expert
Hello. It's Eric Bakker. Author of CandidaCrusher. Thank you for tuning into this YouTube tutorial today. Today, I'd like to talk to youa bit about Candida yeast infections. What is Candida? What are Candida yeast infections?Candida is a type of fungus. It's basically a type of yeast. It is quite common for theseyeast to appear and grow inside peoples' bodies, as well as on the surface of their body. Candidais commonly found in the gastrointestinal tract of people and also in the vaginal areaof women. It can also be found in the throat, mouth, and on the skin surfaces of people.It can become quite a problem when it becomes an invasive infection, and particularly inthose who have got a compromised immune system.
As I mentioned, it's a normally occurringyeast that inhabits the gastrointestinal tract of more than 90 percent of people. It's commonlykept in check by beneficial bacteria and other beneficial yeasts. It can migrate quite easilyfrom the vaginal area of women, from the rectal area into the vaginal area and cause vaginalthrush. This is quite a common occurrence with many women. The overgrowth can also affectmen, women, as well as children. This condition can underpin many different chronic illnesses.It's frequently misdiagnosed by many people in the health care profession. It's commonlymisdiagnosed as irritable bowel syndrome and even inflammatory bowel syndrome by lots ofpractitioners. One of the leading causes as
you're going to see in this presentation isantibiotics. Lowgrade stress, in particular, chronic ongoing stress is often one of thebig causes of a yeast infection. But so are diets that can be laden in sugar and yeasts.Here, you can actually see a picture of Candida, the particular form. You can see the littlebuds here that can break off and grow into new yeasts. Candida is quite an amazing organismwith how it can reproduce and spread through the body, and it can evade detection by theimmune system. It's very clever how it can mutate, change, grow, and evade destructionby the immune system. What are some of the main causes of a Candidayeast infection? Well, these are the main
11 causes, and you can also see another YouTubetutorial on this particular slide here. Antibiotic drugs are one of the leading causes of yeastinfection. Since the advent of antibiotics, there has been a very big increase in yeastinfections in people right across the board. Antibiotics in meat are quite incredible howmuch antibiotics are used in poultry, for example. Many thousands of kilograms of antibioticsare used every year in America and many countries across the world in the food chain, as wellas pharmaceutical drugs. Antibiotics found in foods are big causes of yeast infectionsbecause they kill beneficial bacteria and allow yeast to thrive.Underlying immune deficiencies. Some people
are actually born with immune weaknesses thatcan predispose them to a yeast infection. Steroid drugs or other pharmaceutical drugscan undermine a person's health and be a causative factor. Alcohol is a huge cause of yeast infections.Men who drink beer regularly and women or men who drink wine or beer can be particularlyprone to yeast infections. Particularly those who are under stress, taking antibiotics,consume reasonable amounts of alcohol. You don't have to be a big drinker to get a yeastinfection. But maintaining regular alcohol consumption along with sweet foods, breads,candies, chocolates, these things can all predispose you to a yeast infection. Candidafriendly diets are diets high in soda drinks,
ice cream, bagels, donuts, packaged cereals,jelly, or JellO; take away foods, all these sorts of diets can contribute to a Candidayeast infection. Stress can be a huge causative factor. Stressactually can cause a depletion of the hormone quot;cortisolquot; long term, and cortisol is a veryimportant steroid hormone produced by the adrenal gland, which has a very powerful effecton creating a strong immune presence in the body. With chronic ongoing stress, we cancommonly find a person has an increased susceptibility to a yeast infection.Exposure to toxins, chemicals, heavy metals, mercury fillings has been linked with theliberation of methyl mercury in the mouth.
How Do You Know If You Have Candida Overgrowth Infection
Greetings. It's Eric Bakker from New Zealand.I'm a naturopath. I'm an author of a book called Candida Crusher and also the formulatorof the range dietary supplements called Canxida. Thanks for tuning in. I've got a questionhere today from a lady in Colorado, USA. Taylor Humphrey from Colorado, USA. Taylor is wantingto know, â€œHow do I know if I have a Candida overgrowth infection?â€�Taylor, let's explain that in some detail in this tutorial today. I'm going to read a littlebit of information from my book, Candida Crusher, and I'll explain a little bit as I go along.This is a very common question I get and I think I've answered it in other tutorials andarticles that you can find at yeastinfection .
How do I know if I have a Candida yeast infection?Let's have a look at that in some detail now. Chapter 3 in my book is quite an extensivechapter and contains a huge compilation of all the common signs and symptoms of a Candidayeast infection and all the less common signs and symptoms. It's often been stated by manyexperts in medicine that many people exhibit signs and symptoms of Candida yeast infections.But how do you know that you've got one? Would it be through sinusitis? Would it be throughitchy skin? How do you know if you've got a Candida yeast infection?There are many ways you can pick that. Sometimes an inexperienced will overlook thesevague symptoms and treat the patient for something
other than a yeast infection. I know thisall too well after helping many patients with Candida for almost 30 years now that havevisited other practitioners who were diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome, constipation,diarrhea, parasites, food allergies, leaky gut syndrome, gall stones, inflammatory boweldisease, and many other complaints. Some of these patients were desperate to gethelp and had become disillusioned about treatment and wondered if they would ever get well.Some of these cases have proven to be very difficult to deal with and is it any wonder?If you were told that you have no diagnosable health problem, but you knew yourself forcertain that you did. If you had been to several
s with little success and, in addition,tried selfhelp, but improved only little as a result, than you've probably been disillusioned,too. I can still remember how I felt when I hada serious Candida infection in the 1980s. No one to turn to. Not being taken seriouslyby any s, family, or friends, and mainly because there was no clearcut diagnosis.That's why this chapter is particularly important because it really outlines also the testingof Candida, which we'll go into a little bit in a minute.Spot the Candida patient. There is a box here on this page. When a patient comes into mypractice with a very restricted or limited
diet and multiple digestive complaints, complainingof many food allergies and sensitivities, there is a big chance that they will havea major problem with intestinal dysbiosis or SIBO, including various strains of badbacteria, yeast, and possibly parasites. Some of these patients have visited many practitioners.Others will have spent many hours online with Google and can often tell you exactlywhat is wrong with them, but all you need to do is listen to them.Why am I confident in assuming that they have digestive issues and Candida? Because of comprehensivestool testing, which we'll explain a bit in a minute. And if you look in the right places,you can usually find what you're looking for.
These are the patients that may have a bagor two full of dietary supplements, including products like digestive enzymes, parasitecleanse, immune boosters, bowel products, bowel cleansers, detox product, you name it.Products like constipation and diarrhea aids, glutamine, aloe vera, you name it, probiotics,and they've taken everything these people. Is this you looking at this tutorial right now?Or maybe you're a looking at this right now. In today's internet age, the patientwill tell you that he or she has been doing some research online with the help of Google and can relate to having yeast infection issues. Let's go over a few signs and symptomsin a minute.
