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
Male Candida Symptoms How To Recognize The Male Candida Patient
Hi there. Eric Bakker, naturopath from NewZealand, author of Candida Crusher, formulator of the Canxida range of products. Thanks forchecking out my tutorial. We're back again. We're going to now have a look at men. How to recognizethe man with a yeast infection? Men are different from women as we all know. How do you knowthat a guy's got a yeast infection? Let me read something out of my book and then we'llexplain a bit. In my al practice, 75 percent of patientspresenting with yeast infection related problems are females. Yet guys develop yeast relatedproblems as well. In fact, I suspect there are a lot of men out there with a yeast infection,yet do very little about it to get well. They
may even pass the problem on to their femalecompanions and then they may get it passed back to them. Women tend to be more keen toget their health onboard than guys. I saw my father try to conquer his yeast problemsfor many years. And it was only after many years that he went from to whoprescribed drug after drug, finding nothing wrong with him. This was in spite of severaltrips to the gastroenterologist, where he was examined by way of an endoscope and hada barium enema performed in addition to having every other test thrown at him. The diagnosiswas there was no abnormal disease and dad was prescribed yet more antibiotics. Thatwas in 1982.
And unfortunately, almost 30 years on, nothinghas changed. Yeast infected patients are still diagnosed by the mainstream as havingno abnormal disease if they present to their medical with several yeast relatedsigns and symptoms. If you've been to many different people and they can't find what'swrong with you, if you suffer from bloating, gas, abdominal discomfort, constipation anddiarrhea, if you've been on antibiotics. If you can relate to this, do a stool test orgo and see someone like me or anyone else who knows about Candida to get checked outbecause you may have this problem. How do we recognize a male patient with aCandida yeast infection? I carefully check
the toenails and see if there is any athlete'sfoot. It could be a fungal nail or there could be infection between the toes. I find thatmen, for some reason, are known to more commonly complain of athlete's foot than women do.I'll often check the hands and scalp carefully, too. Particularly, if they're manual workers.Guys, in general, tend to be less interested in hand and foot care than female patients.Shoes and socks off and we'll often find something if we have a good look.Guys who adjust their groin regularly, so men who move their things around a bit. Ifyou know what I mean. Just go to a bar and look around, especially where alcohol is served.Many men subconsciously touch their groin
area and I'll bet that they're either obliviousto the fact that they have a yeast infection or too embarrassed to seek treatment. Manyof the typical male patients I see are blue collar workers, so these are going to be guyswho drive trucks, work as building people, they do physical manual work. They're workingclass men who typically enjoy a beer or wine after work. A social drink at the weekendand they snack on sweet stuff. They may not have the best diet and when carefully questioned,you'll find they burp, bloat and fart, which is quite typical for a guy that drinks beerand has a yeast infection. White collar office workers, so these areguys that maybe earn a bit more money. These
guys also work under high stress especially.They work long hours at the office. Many of them often drink alcohol and they eat overcomputers. They might eat take away food or eat out commonly with their colleagues. Somespend time with clients and conduct business over lunch and dinner or at conventions andgo to business meetings and typically alcohol is served. They'll go out. They'll spend thenight out drinking again and partying. It's all quite common.Men with yeast infections are typically the ones who consume lots of beer, bread and sweetfoods. Those who crave alcohol in general are prime candidates for Candida. And if theydon't crave alcohol, they'll crave sweet things
