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
Fungi Death Becomes Them CrashCourse Biology
Hello and welcome to the wonderfulworld of fungi (fuhngahy), or fungi (fuhnjahy).Both are acceptable pronunciations. But I say fungi because it's fungus.Not funjus. Though funjus is also fun to say. Fungi are a little bit like plants, and more like animalsthan you might think. They diverged from protistsabout a billion years ago, and today scientists estimatethat there are about 1.5 million
species of Fungi on the earth,though in a formal, taxonomic way, we only know about100,000 or so of them. And those that we have metare wonderful, weird, and, in some cases, deadly. And the fact is, death is prettymuch what fungi are all about. Sure, there are the fun fungi,like the singlecelled Saccharomyces, also known as yeast. Without them, we wouldn'thave beer, wine or bread.
It's also true that fungi areresponsible for all kinds of diseases, from athlete's foot to potentiallydeadly histoplasmosis, aka spelunker's lung,caused by fungus found in bird and bat droppings. Fungi can even make people crazy. When the fungus Clavicepspurpurea grows on grains used to make bread and beer,it causes gangrene, nervous spasms, burning sensations, hallucinations,and temporary insanity.
One compound in this fungus,lysergic acid, is the raw materialused to make LSD. And finally there's the destructionthat some fungi bring onto other animals: More than 6 millionbats in North America have died since just 2007, due to a fungaldisease called white nose syndrome. And a fungus has beenimplicated in several extinctions of amphibians andthreatens many more, perhaps as many as a thirdof all amphibians on Earth.
But none of this is what I meanwhen I talk about fungi and death. While some members of thefungus family are total bummers, all of them together performperhaps the most vital function in the global food web: They feaston the deceased remains of almost all organismson the planet. And by doing that, they convertthe organic matter that we're all made of back into soil,from which new life will spring. So, fungi: They thrive ondeath, and in the process,
make all life possible. Aha! You Didn't expect to seeme in the chair so soon! But before we go any deeperinto the kingdom fungi, I wanted to make a toast to Louis Pasteurin the form of a Biolography. By Pasteur's time, beer had beenbrewed for thousands of years in cultures all over the world. Some experts think it may havebeen the very reason that our
