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 Green Tea Effective Against Candida
Thanks for checking out this tutorial today.Just doing a quick tutorial on green tea and Candida. I've got a question here from a ladyin London called Sara. Sara has emailed me saying, Eric, is green tea effective withyeast infections? Green tea is a really good drink to have ifyou've got Candida for multiple reasons. One reason why I like green tea is because ofits good antioxidant effects. Antioxidants are very important properties that many differenthigh quality natural foods and medicines can confer on your body like quenching what wecall quot;free radical damage.quot; Spend maybe a bit of time on Google. I'm not going to tellyou what antioxidants are and what free radical
quenching is and things like that.Foods which have got very powerful antioxidant properties about them are like blueberries,green tea, avocados. There are different foods like that which have got a very good abilityto quench potential damage in the body that could lead to things like cancer.Green tea has got very powerful antioxidants called epigallocatechins, ECGs. These particularantioxidants have got a very good ability to actually bust up biofilming Candida. Thereare various research papers I've been reading that these epigallocatechins have a nice abilityto actually bust up the existing biofilm of Candida and prevent biofilm really from happening.There is some potential there for beneficial
use of one to two cups of a good quality greentea per day when you've got a yeast infection. The best green tea to drink is the MatchaTea. Joseph Mercola speaks about Matcha Tea as well. Matcha Tea is a high qualityJapanese green tea. It's almost like a bright emerald green color when you look at it, soI love green tea. Particularly when I go out eating good quality Japanese food at a restaurant,I'll ask for a quality green tea. Green tea is a bit like wine. You've got thebudget stuff. You've got the intermediate range like $10 a bottle or something, andthen you've got the top end. You've got the expensive wines and expensive green teas.Be prepared to pay a lot of money for a high
quality green tea, particularly a Matcha Tea.When you drink one good cup of Matcha Tea per day, you're really helping your body tobuild a powerful immune defense. You're helping to reduce the potential for cancer. Plus you'reactually helping to bust up any Candida biofilm. One or two cups of good green tea per day.I love green tea and I often drink it in the afternoons when I have my patients cominginto my practice. I'll have one good cup of green tea in the afternoon. I love MatchaTea. It's expensive, but it's definitely worth it. So if you want to have a really powerfuleffect on immune function, think about drinking one good cup of green tea per day.Thanks for tuning in.
