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 Candida Cause Joint Pain
Hi there, Eric Bakker, naturopath, authorof Candida Crusher; here's a question. Does yeast infection cause joint pain? It certainly can. Joint paint is not a verycommon symptom, but it is still one that I see regularly from time to time. Joint painoften will occur as a result of inflammatory response. So inflammation is generally almostalways immune mediated when it comes to a Candidarelated cause. In a previous tutorial, I've spoken about howCandida can cause various issues with your immune system. One thing that Candida causes,we know, is a heightened antibody response.
What we don't really understand that well,we're just starting to learn now, is how Candida can cause out regulation of certain inflammatorymediators in the body. And we know a few of these now. We know, for example, Interleukinis one particular component from our immune system that can cause inflammation. Joint pain can occur in people with Candidaalbicans, particularly with severe chronic yeast infections when the yeast metabolitesproducts from yeast break down can actually get into the blood stream and cause systemicinflammation very low grade. We know this to be a problem.
For example, we know that certain bacteriacan affect the gums, gingivitis, and can also cause heightened inflammatory response inthe body. Some people don't believe it, but many experts now believe that poor gum healthcan lead to cardiac problems. And we certainly know that people with leaky gut or digestiveissues with bacteria and yeast can also have systemic problems. And joint pain is one ofthose systemic problems. Generally, it will be low grade. You may think it's arthritis. So why don't you try and do the yeast infectionsurvey on my site, yeastinfection if you've got lowgrade joint pain to determine whetheryou've got a Candida problem or not. You may
well have. And by eradicating the yeast overgrowthand bacterial problems in your gut, you may well help to down regulate your immune responseand improve your joint pain. So answering that question, does yeast infectioncause joint pain? There's certainly correlation there. But do the survey and just check itout yourself. Thanks for your question.
Chronic Prostatitis And Candida
Thanks for joining my tutorial. I've had quitea few YouTube requests for some more tutorials on Balanitis and Prostatitis. Prostatitisis something I've seen now for a long time in a lot of my male patients. It's actuallyquite a serious problem, and I think a lot of s and urologists underplay prostatitisin terms of the connection with a yeast infection. Many of them, in fact, don't even believethat males can have a yeast infection in the prostate, which I find quite hard to believe.If you've had recurrent antibiotics like many different rounds of antibiotics. If you'vehad many visits to the urologist and basically nothing comes up or the urologist is sickand tired of seeing you or keeps giving you
different drugs and you're not getting yourresolution. Or if you've got some of these signs and symptoms that I'm about to readout to you, there's a big chance that you could well have a serious prostatic problemin terms of Candida. Some of these problems here, I'm just goingto read them out to you. Pain on or difficulty with urination, blood in the urine, jointpain often moving from joint to joint, unexplained skin rashes, increased food intolerances orallergies, poor sleeping, dry irritated eyes, reduced amount of urine, problems with ejaculation,painful ejaculation, ejaculating where there's blood in the semen, having no interest insex or pleasure in sex anymore. This is common
also in prostatitis. Pain down the sides ofthe legs. There will be pain down here or around the ball sac, pardon the expression,around the testicle area. There could be pain around there or the perineal area. Often alowgrade chronic pain or a dull pain can be signs of prostatitis. Always catching coldsor flus. Blurry vision. These are typical signs of Candida aren'tthey. Binge eating on sweet foods. Liking beer and pizza. Lots of guys like beer, forexample. Beer is the worst kind of stuff for you to drink when you've got prostatitis.I've got a good friend of mine who loves drinking beer. He's an electrician friend of mine.He loves beer and he's got a prostate problem,
which he's had for many years. And I knowthat if he doesn't drink beer, if he switches over to vodka or gin, he has less problemwith his prostate than if he drinks plenty of beer. But any alcohol consumption is nota good idea with a yeast infection. As I mentioned, reduced sexual desire, bronchialcough, asthma, problems with sinus, nosebleeds, palpitations, irritable bowel, cold hands,cold feet, sugar cravings, panic attacks, headaches, the list goes on and on and on.There are so many different signs and symptoms of chronic prostatitis.What do you do if you've got chronic prostatitis? Well, if your is giving you no joyat all, and the urologist is looking at you
like you're talking some kind of a weird language;it's time for you to have a good think about your case history yourself. Do you have apast history of taking antibiotics? Have you been hopping from one or naturopathto another without any result? Do you have all these concomitant symptoms? By concomitant,I mean do you have all these extra symptoms apart from that pain, burping, bloating, farting,sugar cravings, sleeping problems, sweating. All these sorts of things could be pointingtoward prostatitis. What I want you to do is take my yeast infectionquiz. Please go to my quiz. You'll find this on CandidaCrusher . Do the quiz, find outif you're mild, moderate or severe, and then
do my program. You don't have to get my bookif you can't afford it, but you're going to get a lot of benefit from it. Go to yeastinfection and have a good look at a lot of the articles I've written just for you guys on prostatitis.The big thing is the diet and the lifestyle change. You just have to make these changes.I've seen many patients with chronic prostatitis overcome this problem by making the change.You make the change, the change will occur, so it's really up to you. But don't despair.Just because you've been told that nothing can be done for you, it doesn't mean to saythat you need to take this kind of crappy advice. There's always something that canbe done.
