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
The Candida Spit Test MYTH 11
The Candida Spit Test â€“ MYTH 11Hi, I'm Jeff McCombs, developer of the McCombs AntiCandida Plan for Health, Vitality,and Transformation. Today, I'd like to spend a little time with you and discuss the Candidaspit test. The Candida spit test was promoted as a marketing tool in the mid 90s by a multilevelmarketing company that sold an antiCandida product. It was promoted as a fast, easy,reliable test for people to perform in their homes to validate that they had a fungal Candidainfection. I'd like to explain to you a little bit why that is not a valid test andgive you some more information behind valid testing.To perform the test, you take a glass of water,
first thing in the morning, and spit intoit. If the spit or mucus forms legs, little extensions down into the water, this is asign, supposedly, that you have a Candida infection. Of course, this doesn't differentiatebetween a Candida yeast or a Candida fungal infection. But the truth of the matter isthere are many things which can cause the mucus to thicken to such an extent that itwould form these legs down into the water. A common one is dehydration. Now, if you'vebeen sleeping all night, and your mouth is closed, you haven't been drinking water.When you wake up in the morning, you're gonna be a little dehydrated, so the mucuswill be thicker and form these strands, or
legs, into the water.Other things that can cause the same thickening of the mucus could be airborne allergies,food allergies. You could have a virus, bacteria, yeast, mold, fungal infection, or parasiteinfection. Cold weather can also cause thickening of the mucus, and anybody who has lived ina cold climate can attest to that. Weather changes can also cause thickening of the mucus.So there are a lot of things that can cause thickening of the mucus.If you consider the body burden that most Americans and most people around the worldhold in terms of toxin, there are generally over 1000 different toxins that are in thebody at any time. Each and any one of these
can cause the mucus to thicken. So when we'redoing a Candida spit test, we're not testing for anything, specifically, because thickenedmucus can be a general indicator of many different types of allergic reactions or responses bythe body and its immune system. If you want to do a saliva test, you would do a salivaantibody test. This is a valid test that's performed at a lab. Laboratories like BioHealthDiagnostics, Genova Diagnostics, Diagnostics Labs will perform saliva antibody tests.An antibody is a protein that is produced by our bodies' white cells in response toa substance that is nonhuman, or nonself. This is a way that the body uses to identifythat substance again should reexposure occur
later on.Other valid tests would be blood tests, stool tests, direct cultures of blood or stool oranother tissue. Metametrix Labs does PCR testing, which is a genetic testing that can be withthe stool or blood. Great Plains Laboratories does organic acid testing. This is testingof byproducts of cellular metabolism from Candida. These are all different tests thatcan be performed to evaluate whether or not you have a systemic fungal Candida infection.Â© Copyright 20102011, All Rights Reserved, Jeffrey S. McCombs, DC Page 86 of 130The best way to use this information is to use several tests in conjunction with eachother, along with a case history, present
signs and symptoms, past history of antibioticuse, and whether or not you've done a Candida protocol and whether it's produced goodresults for you. If you take all this information, combine it together, you're going to geta clearer picture of whether or not you have a Candida infection.I hope you have found this information to be helpful.
