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
Discharge before period White discharge before period
Discharge before period When you are about to start your period, sometimesthere is a lot of white discharge that builds up very unpleasantly. The white dischargebefore your period is actually a form of mucus that is naturally produced from the neck ofthe wombâ€”scientifically called the cervix. The amount of white discharge will vary throughoutyour menstrual cycle and most pregnant women will get something that is known as a quot;pregnancydischargequot;. A healthy white discharge does not have astrong smell or color. There is the uncomfortable wetness, but you should not have any itchingor soreness around your vagina. If you are
experiencing those symptoms, then seek medicalhelp from your . Do I Have Normal or Abnormal Discharge? Normal white discharge before period The white discharge before your period isactually completely normal and natural. The white discharge before your period is mainlyfrom the uterus and cervix, but is not a beginning of an infection. The white discharge thatyou are experiencing is only caused from congestion of your pelvis, which is why the white dischargeis really just mucus. A couple of days before your period, the process that leads to menstruationmay cause an initial leak of clear fluid;
this is not an infection, either. An excessivewhite or clear discharge in the middle of your period is quite common. Abnormal white discharge before period Typically, the vaginal discharge is normal,but there are some cases where the discharge can indicate an infection. If your dischargeis not clear or white and it is really yellow or green, then you may have one of the followinginfections, or abnormal discharge: Yeast Infection A common infection that most women get aftersex, and sometimes randomly, is a yeast infection.
This is when the white discharge appears morelike cottage cheese. There are over the counter medications that work just fine on this infectionand usually it is gone in a week or less with proper treatment. Trichomoniasis: If the discharge has a smell like rotten eggsand is kind of frothy, then you more than likely have some kind of sexually transmitteddisease and need to get it taken care of immediately.
How Many Days After My Period is Ovulation
How many days after my period is ovulation?I need to know. Ovulation is half way through the averagecycle. Is that half way based on first bleeding orwhen I stop bleeding or what? Day one is when the lining starts to shed. AKA, it is really obvious once you start bleeding. You stop bleeding anywhere from day threeto day seven. Obviously you do not ovulate at that point. Ovulation can occur anywhere from day 10 today 24.
So on a day 14, that is two days after myperiod started, is when I ovulate. Right. And ovulation will be seven to tendays after your period ended, on average, depending on how long it lasts. Ovulation is not always on day 14. So track your menstrual cycle, and you'llfigure out which day is half way. Except that you said it could be half wayplus or minus a couple days. On a 30 day cycle, 3 days is a ten percent margin of error, whilethe egg only lasts one. You will see changes to indicate when youovulated, such as the cervical mucus changing.
I hardly even notice it except when bleedingor fish smelling. A fish smell means you have a yeast infection.Bleeding usually means you have your period, an STD with lesions causing bleeding or, foronly a few, dried blood drops because your ovary released a little blood when the eggcame out. But a few drops of blood on the panties canalso mean an embryo implanted. You'll ovulate between day 13 and day 15for most women, counting from the day your period started. An embryo implanting willbe three to seven days after that. So a few drops of blood a few days beforemy period is due means I'm pregnant.
It might mean you are pregnant, or you usedtoo much douche or half a dozen other reasons. And anything but pregnancy and feminine hygieneis bad. You'll ovulate a week to a week and a halfafter your period ends, but I'd say the cervical mucus turning clear and watery insteadof thick and gooey or your BBT going up is a better indicator than a calendar. What is BBT? BBT stands for basal body temperature, yourbody temperature at rest. It spikes the day after you ovulated.
Though in theory the egg is still good atthat time. If in doubt, this is why they sell ovulationtests like pregnancy tests by the half dozen.
