Is Oregano Oil Any Good For Candida
Greetings. It's Eric Bakker, naturopath from New Zealand. Author of Candida Crusher and formulator ofthe Canxida range of dietary supplements. Thank you so much again for checking out thistutorial. I'm not sure if I've completed a tutorial onoregano, but I'm going to do this tutorial anyway. Oregano is one of my favorite herbs when itcomes to digestive problems, gut dysfunction, yeast infection, SIBO, leaky gut, inflammatorybowel, irritable bowel, any kind of a gut related condition.
I think it's one of the best herbs you canuse. Garlic and oregano are my two top favoritesalong with grapefruit seed extract. I just think they're wonderful. If we look at the historical use of oreganovulgar, the herb called oregano. People in the Mediterranean have use thisherb for thousands of years, and they've use it alongside thyme, marjoram, basil and rosemary. These herbs all have one thing in common. They all have very interesting effects onthe digestive systems and, of course, effects
on other parts of the body. If you think back a long time ago, peoplenever had refrigerators, so how would they store meat? How would they store lamb? Lamb is very popular in the Mediterranean. If you look back, how they stored it was theywould kill an animal and they would first consume the digestive organs, the lungs, theheart, the liver and those sorts of things. The animal would be skinned and the meat wouldbe hung up, but they would use herbs often
to preserve the meat. Because the herb has very powerful antimicrobialproperties about it. Herbs were used to keep meat from spoilingfor quite a long period of time and for flavor. But one of the big reasons they used it wasto stop the meat from going off and spoiling. Today, we know that these herbs are a wonderfuladdition to add to meat dishes like lamb and beef, chicken dishes, they're really, reallygood. I've been using oregano in cooking now probablyfor about 30 years. I think it's a wonderful herb to use.
I grow different types of oregano. I grow really spicy hot ones. I grow mild ones. I often will get the herb at its peak in midsummerwhen it has a very high oil content. You can smell it. Just around flowering time. Usually just before flowering is when I pickit. I will crush it in big bunches, clean it andcrush it up and put it in jars and fill it
with olive oil and leave that. I'll often also grow lots of tomatoes andthen dry them in my dehydrator. I grow six different types of tomatoes. Dehydrate them and I put them large jars packedwith artichoke hearts, garlic cloves, roasted bell peppers. Roast those. Put those in there as well. And then sprigs of oregano, sprigs of rosemary,thyme and then put black olives in there.
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
