Meal Ideas For The Candida Diet

The Candida Diet

Hey guys, Axe here, of naturalmedicine and founder of DrAxe . In this tutorial I'm going to share with you The CandidaDiet and my top tips to cure candida fast. I can tell you from working with thousandsof patients. I'm going to go through the exact diet, the supplements, and a few treatmenttips that I can tell you, just within 24 hours you can start seeing incredible results ineliminating candida. So let's start with number one, the foodsyou've got to get out of your diet. It's going to be sugar, grains, and surprisingly foodsthat are cold. Now, that's part of Chinese medicine which I'll share more in a minute.But for starting out, if you have candida,

you obviously . . . I think you know this,but you want to get rid of sugar. You know, any time you have that white thrush on yourtongue, that's a sign that yeast is feeding on sugar within your body. We want to start eliminating yeast. We wantto stop feeding that candida albicans. And so, in order to do that, you've got to eliminateall sugar from your diet, and then also eliminate grains because grains are breaking down intosugar very quickly and even fruit at first. Now, listen, longterm, you're going to addsome grains back in after a few days and even fruit later on. But again, to start thoseare the biggest culprits that are causing

candida to grow. And last but not least, this is really important.If you're over consuming cold foods, ice water, ice cream, cold smoothies. According to Chinesemedicine, your spleen and pancreas and these areas in your body that are responsible foreliminating candida, they get over burdened by cold foods. And so rather than having acold smoothie, have a warm bowl of broth or rather than doing ice cream, have somethingwarm. Again, you want things that are warming to your body and drying. That's the key tokilling candida. Number two is doing a candida cleanse. Beforeyou go on my candida diet, what I recommend

the first thing you do is do a three day cleansewhere you're only consuming bone broth and vegetables, and that's really it for threedays. So again, bone broth, vegetables. You could do a little chicken in there as well. Basically you want to get a big crock pot.You want to do some chicken broth along with vegetables, including onions, celery, garlic,and a little bit of kale and sea salt. And basically you're going to do that soup withbasically vegetables. You can also throw in things, like cauliflower and broccoli. Andyou're going to do that bone broth soup with a little bit of chicken and just consume thatfor three days. I've had people do that two

weeks to see even faster results. That's whereyou want to start, in terms of doing a candida cleanse. It's mostly bone broth for a fewdays with a little bit of vegetables and sometimes a little bit of chicken. Step three is doing the candida diet, andhere are the best foods for helping you cure candida. Number one, it's going to be steamedvegetables, okay? Vegetables are the easiest thing for your body to digest. That's thefirst food. The second food is going to be fermented vegetables, like sauerkraut. Now,typically you don't want to eat the sauerkraut cold, but sauerkraut and kimchi are warmingto the body. They actually also help your

body get more good bacteria in its probioticswhich will help crowd out the yeast and bad bacteria that's built up within your system. The number three food is going to be bonebroth. Bone broth is incredible because it contains the amino acid, glycine, which supportsthe liver and helps your body clear candida. The fourth food is going to be organic meat,like wild caught salmon, organic chicken and turkey, lamb and grass fed beef. Those aresome other great options of foods that can help eliminate candida. And last but not least, it's going to be starchyvegetables, specifically things like butternut

Candida Diet Why Eating Raw Kale Is Not A Good Idea

Greetings. It's New Zealand naturopath, EricBakker. Thanks for checking out my tutorial. I'm the author of a book called Candida Crusherand the formulator of a range of supplements called Canxida. Thanks for checking out thetutorial. A question I get asked all the time from patientsand I've just noticed on YouTube, I've had quite a few people coming in there askingme the same question. quot;Eric, why don't you recommend raw kale? What's the problem withkale? Why can't I have kale in my smoothies? What's the issue with it?quot;Think about kale and think about the cruciferous family in general, broccoli, Brussel sprouts,cauliflower, Chinese vegetables, kale, and

I think there's kohlrabi. There are very manyother kinds of vegetables that belong to the cruciferous family. I grow a lot of broccoli.I love eating fresh broccoli. We grow large cauliflowers. We grow Brussel sprouts. Wegrow lots of kale. In our garden, we grow the Russian red curly kale and we grow thegreen kale. Coming from Holland, Dutch like me eat a lot of kale. When I grew up, my momwould often have mashed potatoes and then meat with gravy and a lot of kale with it.This is a typical winter dish in Holland that we eat.Raw kale is not good and I'll tell you why. The cruciferous family of vegetables containmany different beneficial to your health compounds.

We know, for example, kale is very high inprotein. But it also contains a compound called isothiocyanate. That's a bit of a tongue twisterisn't it. Isothiocyanate. These are called thiols and these are actually very beneficialantioxidant compounds. They have very powerful health building properties to the body. Butthe isothiocyanates, unfortunately, also attack an enzyme in your body called TPO or thyroperoxydase.The TPO enzyme is very important because it allows iodine molecules to attach to tyrosine.We've got two main thyroid hormones. We've got T3 and T4. T3 is called triiodothyronine,so it's actually three iodine molecules attached to the amino acid tyrosine. T4 is called thyroxine,so that's four molecules of iodine bound to

a thyroxine backbone.The body splits off one iodine molecule to turn T4 into T3, the active thyroid hormone.There are other thyroid hormones as well. We've got T2. We've got reverse T3, and we'vegot many other kinds of thyroid hormones. But the basic ones that our body will utilizeare T3 and T4. T3 is the active form of the thyroid hormone. It's the one that all thecells of body use to activate. T3 they reckon is about 80 percent activeand about 20 percent not so active. T4 on the other hand is about 20 percent activeand 80 percent not so active. It needs to be converted. The body's quite clever. Itcan utilize T3 and T4, but T3 is what it really

wants to power up all the cells of the body.All of your cells of your body apart from your cells in the nail and hair contain receptorsites for the T hormones. This is why when a person has a thyroid condition, just aboutany part of the body can play up, the heart, the eyes, the skin can play up, all the organs,your joints, the muscles, the nerves, they can all play up because they all have receptorsites for the T hormones. Raw kale, in particular, has a very powerfuleffect on the thyroperoxydase enzyme, particularly when it's raw. When you heat kale up, youdestroy the ability of the isothiocyanate to react to TPO. Cooking kale, no problem.Steaming kale, no problem. Eating it raw,

problem. Go to Google and type in quot;raw kaleand thyroidquot; and you'll find over a million pages that will come up. There are lot ofreally good science pages you can read on the ability of the cruciferous family to affectthyroid function. This is why we call them goitrogens. They can promote the thyroid todevelop a goiter or become enlarged, so goitrogen. Now you know what the word quot;goitrogenquot; means.Goiter means enlarged thyroid. The thyroid can become enlarged if it doesn't get enoughiodine. It doesn't get enough iodine if the thyroperoxydase enzyme is going to be affectedby isothiocyanate. Now, you understand why kale, especially raw, is not really good.Any raw cruciferous vegetables are not the
