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
Benefits of Sea Salt
Hey guys, Axe here, of naturalmedicine. In this tutorial I'm going to train you on the many benefits of sea salt and thenegative side effects of iodized table salt. At the end I'll talk about the ways that Ispecifically like to use salt and something you've got to be aware of also your sodiumto potassium ratio. Let's start off talking about the benefitsof sea salt and why to stay away from iodized salt. Iodized table salt today is about 97%salt, but it also has anticaking agents, MSG, and also aluminum derivatives. If you'rejust using regular salt, you use it when you're out to eat or you buy it at your regular grocerystore, that is not the salt you want to be
using. It's not natural. I know that it doeshave iodine. Most people tend to not necessarily be iodine deficient because they're not gettingenough salt. It's because they're not eating enough iodine rich foods if it's an issue. Just to say this, regular iodized salt hasbeen shown to increase your blood pressure. It's been shown to increase weight gain andincrease cellulite buildup in your body. You want to stay away from regular iodized saltbecause of the aluminum and because of the anticaking agents and the other chemicaladditives. Now, what you should be doing is consumingsea salt or rock salt on a regular basis.
I know that my wife actually for Christmashere a few years ago got me a salt collection that I use in different seasonings. I knowthat I have Himalayan salt, Celtic sea salt, and other salts from all around the world.In fact, I've got some different black types of salts, one from Hawaii that I absolutelylove. There are a lot of different types of salt out there. But again when we're talking about a rocksalt, like a Himalayan salt, or a sea salt, like a Celtic sea salt, it's not just salt.There are other electrolytes or vitamins and minerals that are associated with those. Infact, if you look at a Himalayan sea salt
or a Celtic salt, they may contain as manyas 80 trace vitamins and minerals in that one salt alone. So it's not just sodium. It'salso potassium. It's chloride. It's magnesium. You're going to find these other ratios there. Some of the benefits of consuming sea saltin moderation include increased hydration. It can support your kidneys and actually helpsupport kidney detoxification. It can improve cleansing your colon. It can improve the healthof your libido. It can improve brain function and help get fluids throughout the body. Itcan support heart health and really also improve overall energy levels.
Getting sea salt or rock salt is actuallyan important part of your diet. You should be getting it on a regular basis. Two of myfavorites, Himalayan salt and Celtic sea salt, are absolutely two of the best you shouldbe using. I want to say that typically doing a fourth of a teaspoon per meal three timesa day is about the ideal amount for most people. If you're an athlete, you can actually doquite a bit more if you're sweating on a regular basis. You do want to be getting a littlebit of salt on your food, especially if you have a thyroid problem. If you have a thyroidissue, getting a little bit of this real salt every day in your food is an absolute must.
Now along with increasing your salt consumptionwith the benefits of sea salt, you also need to be getting more potassium rich foods. Iwould go onto my website, DrAxe , and look up potassium rich food list and really increaseboth of those, because hydration is not just about getting more water. It's about gettingmore sodium and getting more potassium. You need to get more of both of those, so potassiumrich foods like avocados, spinach, homemade yogurt, figs, kiwi. A lot of fruits and vegetablesare high in potassium. Again that's what you want to be focusing on. Really almost everybodyshould probably be getting more good quality sea salt as well as getting more potassium.You need those ratios balanced. It helps with
