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
Can I Eat Rice On The Candida Diet
Hi there. It's New Zealand naturopath, EricBakker, author of Candida Crusher and formulator of the Canxida range of dietary supplements.I've got an email here from a guy in America who wants to remain anonymous. Then he asksme, quot;Can I eat rice on the Candida diet? Is rice suitable? Will it affect my yeast infection?quot;This is a question I get asked all the time about rice. I've just had a look on severalwebsites and different forums about rice. Half the people say yes; half the people sayno. A lot of experts say no. But in my opinion, a lot of these experts have never had thekind of experience I've had treating tens of thousands of people with yeast infectionsor bowel problems. They've treated all kinds
of conditions, but they haven't specializedin gut disorders with people. I can tell you now, eating rice on the Candidadiet is very interesting for some people in terms of the effects it can create. For manypeople that I see, they have no issues at all eating rice when they've got Candida andthat includes white rice, brown rice, wild rice, basmati rice, all kinds of rice. ButI'll be quick to add that you're better off avoiding white rice on the Candida diet untilyou get a very good gut function back. Until the bowel motions improve. Until the bloatingand gas disappear. Until your weight's under control. Be careful with rice because somepeople eat much too much rice, just like they
eat much too much bread or potatoes or thesekinds of starchy carbohydrates. I prefer to eat brown rice. I like brown ricewith some wild rice thrown through it, the black rice. You can also eat red rice. Infact, brown basmati is quite a nice rice to eat, so there's a rice you can get calledbasmati rice. I prefer to use a basmati rice for making Palou dishes, which is really asteamed rice dish with vegetables mixed through it. That's called a Palou and then you canput different kinds of things like peas or carrots, some cardamom, some cloves, and somecinnamon sticks. You can put different spices and vegetables through the basmati and a bitof water in there.
And I usually put a little bit of water that'sabout one knuckle or even a half to one knuckle joint above the rice in the pot. I use a castiron pot and I use clean water. Usually just cold water. I don't usually rinse the rice.You're supposed to rinse it and all this business. I don't do that. And then I'll get it on high,get it boiling, and then turn it right down to low. I'm going to put a lid on the saucepan.Again, a heavy lid, I usually wrap a small tea towel around there. And I've learned thatputting a small cloth under the lid absorbs a lot of the steam and moisture and it alsogets the top of the rice nicely steamed. When you are going to eat rice, make sure you don'tuse those aluminum saucepans. Rice cookers
tend to be aluminum. Throw them out. You don'twant to have aluminum in your diet in a saucepan or in a rice cooker. Do the steaming methodusing a heavy saucepan. A stainless steel saucepan with a heavy copper base is alsogood to use. Brown rice is preferable. You can steam thator boil it. If you do want to stick with white rice, there's nothing stopping you from usingan 8020 blend of 80 percent brown, 20 percent white, a long grain. Basmati's a better kindof white rice to eat than other kinds of white rice. Some people say one cup per day. Nomore. I mean it's up to you. If you're used to eating rice, you'll sort of know how muchyou need to eat. Just don't eat too much rice.
Keep your amount down and make sure that ifyou do have rice, you have it alongside plenty of vegetables and protein. Don't just eata large plate full of rice. That's a big mistake. Can you eat rice on the Candida diet? That'sthe question. Well, if you are getting symptoms like brain fog, joint pain, bloating, gasor you're not feeling good and you are eating rice, stop the rice temporarily to see ifit improves your gut function. If you are eating rice and you get none of those symptoms,try to switch over to brown rice, which has got a higher fiber content. There are a lotof B vitamins. Some experts even believe that brown rice contains digestive enzymes. I knowthat when I eat more brown rice, I have better
Is Brown Rice OK With Candida
Thank you for checking out this tutorial. I'vegot a question here from a lady in StokeonTrent. I think that's in England somewhere. And thislady here is asking me is brown rice okay to have on your Candida Crusher diet. I thinkshe's a bit confused because it's quite a long email she sent me here citing referencesfrom different people like Joseph McCall is saying that all grains are not permittedthat they will feed Candida and to have a completely grainfree diet. But she's alsociting other authors here saying white rice is no good, but brown rice is okay, so she'svery confused. In my experience, most people aren't goingto eat bowls and bowls of brown rice. They
only eat small amounts of it. I tend to findbrown rice to be okay on the Candida Crusher diet for several reasons. One, people don'tlike cutting out all grains from their diet. It's a bloody boring diet if all you eat ismeat and vegetables. Plus weight loss, energy drop, depression, insomnia, lots of thingscan happen when you take all grains out of your diet too quick. I do agree, for example,taking out breads, most commercial breads, cookies, and cakes. They need to go. But Ithink to take every single grain out of your diet is just shear madness. It's stupidityto put people going from black to white. It's ridiculous making these very sort of powerfulstatements that all grains are toxic and they
all breed Candida.Most people can't tolerate a completely grainfree diet in that they lose weight and they gettired very quick. That's my experience. By allowing people to have things like barleyand millet and brown rice and quinoa, most people selflimit the quantity they have ofthese grains anyway. You might get the old crazy person that might eat three pounds ofbrown rice in a day, well, that's just madness, too, but most people have a small amount alongwith their meat and vegetables. I'm quite happy for you to have a good organicbrown rice in small amounts with your meals. Absolutely. And I find it satisfies a lotof people and it helps them to maintain weight
and energy, and I really don't believe thatthis is going to feed Candida. I just don't buy into it. It's not my experience in the anyway. To answer your question in StokeonTrent.Jane is her name. I agree with you. Brown rice is fine to have in small amounts.Thanks for tuning in.
