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
Candida Case Study 16 Jill With Endometriosis
Another case presentation. Interesting onehere. We've got a 22yearold lady called Jill, and Jill presented with endometriosis,a shocking condition. I'm going to talk a little bit about it from my book and thengive you some explanation about the case. I first saw Jill when she was about threeyears of age. Her mother brought her in with eczema, an itchy skin condition. Jill wasbreastfed for about a week and her mother was too tired and stressed with her otheryounger children to breastfeed, and placed Jill on a cow's milk formula.Jill had already been prescribed a few rounds of broadspectrum antibiotics by the timeshe was three. She presented with dark circles
under her eyes, was lethargic, and had multipleskin lesions up her arms and on her torso, legs, and it was scratched raw. We successfullytreated the skin complaints with diet change and a special probiotic.I saw Jill when she was 15 years of age, but this time she had post viral fatigue. It wouldhave been Epstein Barr virus. Jill was very tired, complained of headaches, and fallingasleep at school. Her mom had taken her to the where she received more antibiotics,all to no avail. She had menstrual cramps and breakouts of vaginal yeast infectionsat this stage. I then saw Jill last year when she was 21.This time she presented with endometriosis,
which her had diagnosed the year before.Jill had come to me concerned about her fertility, as she had just become engaged and she wasgetting regular urinary tract infections as well. She had undergone surgery to removeseveral cysts and had experienced lowgrade pelvic pain since. This time we placed Jillon the Candida Crusher program, and the results have been fantastic. We've had no more bowelproblems or urinary problems. There's a million Jill's out there. If you'vegot endometriosis and you're a lady watching this right now, I want you to sit back andlisten. Did you have vaginal yeast infections prior to having endometriosis? Did you usediflucan or fluconazole? Do you use applicators
like Canesten? Did you use any creams or productsfrom the pharmacy to cure this problem? You've probably driven the condition back in thevaginal area into the endometrium. It's not uncommon. It happens all the time.Endometriosis is an inflammation of the lining of the endometrium, and it usually comes fromsome kind of irritant inside there. There are different theories on endo. Some peoplecall it the retrograde menstruation theory where they think menstrual fluids have goneback through the cervix internally and caused it. Other people call it an autoimmune condition.I call it a yeast infection gone wrong, or a bacterial infection like bacterial vaginosis,which is even more common than Candida. But
conditions of endo often have had an originwith Candida parapsilosis or Candida albicans or another Candida species that's basicallygot caught in the endometrium and the immune system has started to go crazy and haywireand started to really develop inflammation internally.Take heed. If you've got thrush, you need to nail this thrush. You need to crush thethrush. You get rid of this damn thing and get rid of it. Don't use applicators. Don'tgo and fall for the 's line that you'll go on an antifungal drug. It's crap! It doesn'twork. I've treated too many women out there who've used these drugs recurrently, and ithas come at a cost. I've seen many women with
infertility. Many women over the years thathad vaginal thrush and they never really got rid of it.If you get recurring urinary tract infections, you need to get your immune system strong.No booze. No smoking. No refined carbohydrates or crap food. Drinking plenty of water. Yourimmune system needs to be made strong. Immune system weakness often occurs with stress.I see stress quite commonly in 21yearold girls like this because they're living awayfrom mom and dad. They're flatting or they've got a mortgage, a new career, a boyfriend,or something. There's some kind of stress underpinning it. Usually, if you dig deep,you'll always find something.
