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 CandidaéCandida 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. Okayé Those are the sweeteners you should be using if you have Candida. Number two. You need to eliminate grains fromyour diet. Whyé 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

Case Study 20 Eric Bakker Chronic Candida Yeast Infection

I'm going to do another case history, andthis is going to be my case history. It's going to be quite different. This is a 25yearoldguy called Eric Bakker. In 1986, he was just turning 26. So this is my own personal story.You might like to hear my personal story on how I came to really develop a burning passionfor helping people like you out there with Candida.You may like to hear my own personal story about the yeast infection I used to have whenI was in my 20s. I used to live by myself in a small house in a place called Brisbanein Australia, and this little house was in a suburb that was prone to flooding. It wascheap rent, and I was working in a flourmill

at the time. I'd been living on my own forabout five years at that point. One week I would work the day shift. One week I'd workthe afternoon shift. And the following week, I would work the night shift.I started to feel increasingly stressed and tired and one winter developed a bad cough.It got worse to the point where I took an antibiotic. My little house was cold and damp,and I had to bail water out of my bedroom after it rained heavily. I did tell you itwas cheap rent. The walls were covered in a thin, moist film that I later discoveredwas mold. My diet wasn't the best at times. I was craving sweet foods, take out, and lotsof bread. Either my bowels were blocked or

I was experiencing diarrhea and lots of gas.I felt terrible, and my health was going downhill fast. My skin started to get itchy and I developeda bad case of athlete's foot and jock itch. To give you a background on all this, a fewyears prior, I had 13 amalgam fillings replaced over a period of two weeks in 1983. I startedto notice that my health was beginning to deteriorate and by early '85, I was feelingincreasingly anxious. I developed skin rashes, athlete's foot, and many manifestations ofa Candida yeast infection, all unbeknown to me at the time, including very strong sweetcravings. I had issues with my girlfriend who thoughtI was a hypochondriac because my health had

deteriorated to the point where I had to seekmedical help. But the was of little help because all the tests results came backnormal, and he wanted me to see a psychiatrist. I knew I wasn't going crazy. I knew that therewas something undermining my health, and I couldn't put a finger on it until I read theYeast Connection by William Crook and then later I read the Missing Diagnosis by Orion Truss. I've read about 50 books since then on Candida, but the first one byCrook was quite a good book. My girlfriend at the time started to doubtme and told me that my problems were all in my head. A view strongly supported by hermother and that I needed to wake up to myself.

See a shrink and take antidepressants. Idecided to end that unsupportive relationship and move out of their flat and had a garagesale a few weekends later to downsize. A naturopath was looking through some of my gear at a garagesale and asked me why I had dark circles under my eyes. I told her about my health and thefirst thing she told me was to get a hair analysis to determine the mercury levels becauseshe thought the mercury fillings being replaced, it could have caused a problem. And she saidthere may be a connection there with that and the Candida.I went to see her and showed her Crook's book, and what she said made a heck of a lotof sense. And I started getting treatment

for my yeast infection. Unfortunately, shedidn't walk me through a proper mercury detoxification, I felt very, very sick, and I had a bad Herxheimerreaction. I had a lot of vomiting and diarrhea for quite a few weeks. And this, in fact,was one of the lowest points in my life. When at one point, I had considered taking my ownlife because I was so unsupported. No one wanted to listen to me. I felt terrible. The told me I was nuts. My mother said I was crazy. My girlfriend didn't listen.Is it any wonder people jump off bridges or do crazy thingsé If no one is there to listento you at all, all the doors get closed in your face. There's no support at all. What'sthe point in living evené When you're at your

Candida Case Study 12 Sharon Chronic Vaginal Thrush

I'm going to do another case history, andthis is going to be one on chronic vaginal thrush. A condition I've seen for many yearswith patients. This is a 43yearold lady named Sharon.Sharon contacted me almost two years ago after seeking help with vaginal thrush, which hadbeen bothering her for over 15 years. She consulted many practitioners over the yearsand received all kinds of advice. She'd read one of my online articles and was desperatefor a solution. One of the first things I ask patients likeSharon is are you willing to do whatever it is or are you going to leave my room withjust the idea of �Oh, I'll give it a go

and see what happens.� And I knew that Sharonhad what it takes to get through and obtain the permanent solution she was looking for.You can see it in someone's eyes when they've been suffering enough, and they're sick andtired of all this crappy advice they get from people. They know there is a solution, butby the time they come and see me, usually they're ready to be truly committed.You need to sort the silver or gold from the coal. Lots of people are coal out there andoccasionally get nuggets of gold. You get something really fine. What I mean is whenpeople have really and truly had enough, they're going to do whatever it takes to get well.And that's what makes the difference between

someone who's getting an average result andsomeone who is going to commit fully and get a fantastic result. And Sharon was one ofthese delightful patients. Her thrush was chronic and unremitting. Shewas getting it every time she had a period. She had three to five days of severe itchand discharge, and it was just driving her crazy and I could see it. The problem wasthe recommendations given to her by other health care professionals would only workfor a few weeks at most, and then the yeast infection would come back with a vengeance.Sharon is a coronary care nurse who works at a large . Her husband is an experiencedpilot who is away flying overseas frequently,

flying the big jets, long haul between Asiaand New Zealand. Sharon works several different shifts and frequently works long hours atunusual times leading to sleep and energy issues. This in turn has resulted in her oftenskipping at least one meal a day and relying on foods from vending machines at the .My concern here is the amount of processed food, including sugar, that Sharon was consuming.By the time she came to my room looking for a permanent solution, she'd been taking fluconazoleor diflucan once per week for several years, which apparently was keeping the conditionunder control. My second concern was that her husband, when he could come home, they'dengage in intimate relations frequently in

a short period of time, which is causing majordiscomfort and aggravation for her. My third concern was that her diet and lifestyle werefaulted and were in dire need of an overhaul if a permanent change in her yeast infectionwas to be expected. What Sharon and her were blissfullyunaware of was that she still had the primary complaint of vaginal thrush, but in addition,developed side effects from diflucan for a fiveyear period on a weekly basis. And theseside effects included lowgrade nausea, pale colored stools, and annoying red skin rashesaround the tops of her thighs and upper back. She was prescribed hydrocortisone cream forskin rash and took laxatives for constipation

she was getting regularly. Incredibly, shelearned to live with the nausea and accept it as a part of life, and was entirely unawarethat it was a fluconazole side effect. What a miserable life this poor woman had to leadall those yearsé This case isn't unusual when you think aboutit. We get people like this quite regularly. The primary complaint has been suppressedby a drug, but then several secondary side effects are produced, which are given moredrugs. How stupid is thaté We see this all the time. That's like maxing out on a creditcard then taking other damn credit cards to pay off the primary credit card. How stupidis thaté
