Candida Albicans

What is Candida

In our Digestive Tract exist good bacteria called “flora” and bad Bacteria. Candida is one of the microorganism critters in our Digestive tract that can go out of control. If Candida overgrows, it begins to poison the immune system, and eventually pass to the blood stream.

Heavy Metals,
Prescription drugs,
Sugar and Carbohydrates,
Hormonal Changes,
Food allergies,
Eating Acid Forming Foods,
Re-infection from sexual partner,
Birth Control,

Diabetes.

It is opportunistic, which means that if it has an opportunity to grow and take over an environment—it will.

Yeast puts out toxins that weaken the immune system. Some Poison Effects of Candida Depend on Body Type, Blood Type, Weakest Organ, Weakest Gland, Trauma, Presence of Heavy Metals Amount and Location in the body.

An inflamed gut is a “leaky gut.” Leaky Gut Syndrome (which many people have occurs when the fungal rhizomes (legs) of candida albicans penetrate the gut wall, allowing undigested food particles to pass through the intestinal wall into the body cavity. The body sees these substances as foreign invaders and develops an antibody to them, which we experience as an allergy the next time we eat that food.

Candida has developed a number of ways to evade your immune system and manipulate its environment. This makes Candida particularly difficult to control. If you are like most people with Candida relate problems, you resemble an overburdened camel. To regain health, to look good, feel good and enjoy life, you’ll need to unload many “bundles of straw” this may take months even a year or two.

Eradicating Candida

Step 1- Eat a diet high in vegetables, with good sources of protein, and avoid offending foods. Take some supplements to keep yourself adequately nourished.
Step 2 – Begin taking yeast killers, and at the same time take liver remedies, and do colonics.
Step 3 – Colonize the intestinal tract with new flora. Use probiotics and/or high quality yogurt.
Step 4 – Rebuild or Restore your Body: Glands, Tissues, and Organs All need to be Restored
Repeat step 1 and 3 with further Colon cleansing to allow any mucoid plaque to be removed.

The Candida diet only works if you can fully and completely eliminate sugars in all their forms. Grains (cereal, bread, pasta, muffins, etc.), fruits, dairy foods like milk and cheese and even sweet vegetables like carrots contain too much sugar. The carbs in these foods are quickly converted into sugars that will feed your yeast overgrowth.

Let’s say you have eaten this diet perfectly for 3 months and at a birthday party you take a small piece of cake (just to be social). Up to this point the yeast in your body had been well on its way to dying off but now it has just been fed! Congratulations! Your yeast is now alive and reproducing again. You are now back to day one on the Candida diet. Will you start over again from scratch?
