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 Buckwheat Ok On Candida Diet
Greetings. It's naturopath, Eric Bakker, authorof Candida Crusher, formulator of the Canxida range of dietary supplements. I've got a questiontoday from a lady in New York who wants to remain anonymous. Her question is quot;Eric isbuckwheat okay for Candida? Can I eat buckwheat if I've got digestive problems?quot;Actually, you can eat buckwheat, but let's just look at some common sense first. Whenyou're first starting out on a Candida diet approach, you need to first pull back, ofcourse, on the obvious crap out of your diet, the junk. Be careful if you haven't eatengrains like buckwheat or quinoa or oats or amaranth or any of these kinds of grains ornuts or seeds or for that matter, chickpeas
and beans, and things like that. Many peoplewill stop one thing and start something else, and they'll often eat way too much when theyfirst start and then get aggravations. If you haven't eaten buckwheat before, myadvice is to go very slowly with buckwheat flour or buckwheat groats and to eat small,small amounts incorporated into your diet every now and then. Maybe once or twice aweek and then gradually build up until you can tolerate them more. Remember, you're digestiveorgans have to slowly change and develop more enzymes and secrete these to allow these foodsto be broken down properly. The bacteria have to modify and perhaps shift in one directionor another there as well and modify their
colonies and populations to adapt to the kindof new diet as well. It's not just a matter of a mechanical process of swallowing andeating and now I've got a problem. What's wrong with me?The body has to adapt to these things. Just like muscles have to adapt to exercise. Justlike how your endocrine or your hormone system has to adapt to sleeping and work patterns.Everything in the body is about adapting to some kind of stress. So eating a new kindof carbohydrate in the diet, that will be a stress you're putting on the body, so anadaptation has to occur. You have to do that on a gradual process.Be wary of websites that say you can't eat
this and you can't eat that. I've just hada look at about a half a dozen websites that say that buckwheat, quinoa, oats, all of theseare 100 percent strictly forbidden on a Candida diet. Almost sounds like some kind of a preachertalking. Some kind of religious experience, so you can't do this and you can't do that.I love it when people say that. Common sense prevails when it comes to Candida. There arecertainly some quot;yesquot; and quot;noquot;, some quot;cant'squot; and quot;cans.quot; You'd have to be crazy to thinkthat you could drink coca cola on a Candida diet or to drink alcohol on a Candida diet.That's just crazy even believing that. Whether you're religious or not. You'd have to bea knot head to believe that.
In my opinion, it's the same when it comesto grains like quinoa and buckwheat and amaranth. Many people say no and some people say yes.Only you can be the judge of what that grain is going to be like in your digestive systemin terms of any effects it's producing. Buckwheat is okay, but when you're starting out on aCandida diet, go easy on it and gradually build it up. In fact, buckwheat is a verynice grain. I like it. I like millet as well. I like puffed millet and I just like plainmillet. It's very nice to incorporate, to cook, and to add small amounts into saladsand into your diet. We eat a lot of quinoa and it's a beautiful grain to eat. I likeit even cooked in chicken stock. It's a very
tasty addition as a side serve.Oats. I have oats most mornings. And I think small amounts of a steel cut oat are perfectlyfine to have with people with Candida. In fact, when you deny people all these grainsfrom their diet, they quickly get bored with just all vegetables and meats. What a boringdiet. Just meat and vegetables. Very boring. And many people lose weight and energy onthese grain starved diets as well. Buckwheat is okay.Think about soba noodles because they're buckwheat noodles. Soba is quite a nice addition toyour diet as well. Different ways you can incorporate buckwheat into your diet. Buckwheatpancakes, for example, with blueberries are
The Katering Show WE QUIT SUGAR
I'm Kate McCartney. I'm Kate McLennan. We're unstable. Welcome to The Katering Show. Fuck, this is heavy. This show is all about meand how I can cook delicious recipes that won't make McCartney(BLEEP) her pants. But food isn't just aboutnot (BLEEP) your pants.
It's also about happiness. It's about health. It's about controllingyour life expectancy through what you put in your body so that you never die unexpectedlyon a toilet. We all want to live for ever. And the best way to live for everis to quit sugar. So, on today's episode,we're going sugarfree.
Wow, that has just gone everywhere,hasn't it? (WHISPERS) Shit. Sugar. It's been really bad for yousince the internet began. Sugar has been linked to dementia,corn, Americans. Infertility, fatness,dead orangutans, depression, and God knows we don't need any moreof that, do we? (LAUGHTER)
But sugar is all I have. Without beer and cheese in my diet,sugar is the one thing that makes me happy,aside from alcohol, which my shrink has strongly urged meto cut back on. So why would I wantto give up sugar? Well, the answer is this lady,Sarah Wilson. (WHISPERS) Sarah Wilson. Sarah Wilson is a ladywho thinks that cancer can be cured
by masturbation or something and whomade up the idea of quitting sugar. She has rich girl hair. And Photoshop skin. And we want to be just like her. And the best way to be just like heris to quit sugar and get fired from hostinga cooking show, a goal which we are one step awayfrom achieving. That's right, McLennan.
So, let's get started on changingour lives for the better. Again. In order to becomejust like Sarah Wilson, we have to get rid of all the foodscontaining poisonous sugars, like apples, wine,other apples, sugar. Sarah Wilson doesn't liketo be wasteful, so we're gonna takeall of these poisonous sugars to the kids next door.
