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
Natural Treatments for Lupus
Hey, guys, Axe here, of naturalmedicine and Founder of DrAxe . In this tutorial, I'm going to talk about lupus naturaltreatments and natural cures for lupus. So I'll go over the best supplements for lupus,the best food specifically and then food that will probably surprise you, but foods thatyou absolutely want to stay away from. Lupus is an inflammatory condition that can affectthe entire body including muscles, tissues and organs. And also it's an autoimmune diseasein nature. An autoimmune disease is where your body's own immune system starts attackingorgans that it should never attack in the first place. But here's the good news. I'veworked with thousands of patients with autoimmune
disease and many of those with lupus and we'veseen complete recoveries in many of those patients. So let's go ahead and jump. I'm going to start with supplements, thengo into diet and then foods you should stay from. So first off, if you have lupus, thereare five supplements that are the best to take. The number one supplement is going tobe Vitamin D3. Vitamin D level, Vitamin D specifically, it's not just a vitamin, it'sknown as a pro hormone. It's essential for balancing hormones in the body but also formodulating your immune system and that's really the key in overcoming any or autoimmune issue,but especially one like lupus, is we've got
to help balance out how you're immune systemis functioning and so vitamin D is critical. You can go and get a vitamin D test, but here'sthe truth, over 80% of people are vitamin D deficient and I would guess over 90% ofpeople with autoimmune disease or more are vitamin D deficient. So it's almost a mustthat you should get vitamin D. I recommend 5,000 IUs twice a day for one month and thenafter that, 5,000 IUs a day. And best if you can go and get sunshine that day. That's idealfor about 30 minutes directly on your skin. That's what you want to do and during thosedays, you don't need to take the supplement, but, ideally, vitamin D supplements, numberone.
The number two supplement is going to be collagenprotein powder. Now, collagen is the main ingredient in bone broth and it contains theamino acid proline. Now, the root cause of lupus is a condition called leaky gut syndrome.Really lupus, an autoimmune disease, it starts in the gut with leaky gut. So we've got torepair your gut if we want to heal lupus. And so collagen protein powder and amino acidslike glutamine help repair the digestive tract. The number three supplement you should betaking for lupus is frankincense essential oil. Frankincense has been used for thousandsof years and it contains an antioxidant called Boswellia and Boswellia is one of the mostpowerful natural antiinflammatories in the
world. So start using frankincense essentialoil. What I recommend is you get a bottle of frankincense oil and just rub it all overyour body but specifically your neck and your forehead and just a little bit under yournose. Also, one other thing you can do is do two drops of frankincense on your thumband rub it on the roof of your mouth twice a day. Frankincense essential oil, again,helps balance out the immune system, which is critical. Also, there's a really unique study done onlupus and they found that those with lupus tend to have low stomach acid. And if youhave low stomach acid, there are a few things
you can do. One is eat smaller meals. Anotherthing is be rested while you eat and chew more. Another thing is do a little bit ofapple cider vinegar and water. But, from a supplement standpoint, digestive enzymes andalso taking something called HCL, that's hydrochloric acid. So again, digestive enzymes are the firstthing I would take. I'd take two to three capsules with meals, especially if you'reconsuming a meat product. And if you are consuming meat as well, you might try one or two capsulesof HCL with pepsin. And then, last but not least, probiotics. You know probiotics arecritical for crowding yeast out of the body,
